What I Bought Haul

Monday, 25 February 2013

I recently went through a stage of buying nothing which was great for my bank balance but not so much for my addiction of buying all things necessary and of course UNnecessary so I give in and bought just a few bits and pieces....

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pore & Shine I've noticed these popping up in blog posts recently and they seemed like they would work for my skin so thought I would try them out. (I'm loving the green'y lime packaging) 
3 for 2 at superdrug / £4.49each

Garnier Skin Naturals Moisture Match i picked up the one for Dull Skin which is in the orange coloured packaging mainly for the fact is says 24 hour hydration, I can't wait to try it out. They're currently on offer at Superdrug for £3.99! Usually £5.99.

Simple Cleansing Wipes an essential repurchase, they've recently been re-packaged with improved goodness of added vitamins and a newer softer feel oooo'err! 

Simple Oil Balancing Moisturiser a definite essential for my skin, I always make sure to pick one up when there on offer just because I like to stock up as well as take advantage of a good deal.
Offer at superdrug for £3 atm!

Garnier Mineral Deodorant I don't know about you but I buy deodorant purely for the smell and for the anti-perspirant properties of course, so when my favourite scent (invisicool) is on offer I always have to stock up. 

MUA fur-effect nails these seemed like a good idea at the time but now not so much.

Models Own Wah Nail Pens after watching many (too many) nail tutorials I was inspired to create some amazing designs on my nails but the amazingness that I saw in my head did not quite go to plan in reality and I failed miserably.

I love to read so after a little browse in whsmith' I picked up these two books which were on offer at 2 for £7 a deal I couldn't turn down. The Sophie Kinsella book is my kind of read and as I like lovely bones the film I decided to read the story too.

I'm just a big kid at heart

 I saved the best till last my new shoessssss there a slipper style shoe with studded detail from new look not to everyone's taste I know, but I like them a lot even more so when they were reduced from £24.99 to a reasonable £12! (they look great with a pair of skinny jeans.)

Have you picked up any bargains recently?

Sexy Mother Pucker Pucker Up Gloss...

Tuesday, 12 February 2013

This came in the oh so wonderful Soap & Glory best of all gift set and i was so eager to buy it after numerous times of browsing it on my many trips to boots but i am so glad i didn't.

Its not a horrible product, the colour pay off is really good it's a nice light rose pink colour that has a scent of chocolate cherry which is ok i guess it's not enjoyable but it's not off putting either.

The thing however that i find off putting is the bee sting sensation the whole point of this lipgloss! 
How the heck can anyone stand that feeling, i apply it everything's fine then it starts and after about 30 seconds it has to come off because i just can't take it any longer.

To who ever wears these on a daily basis how'd you do it? 

However saying all that i'm glad i tried the pucker gloss as it's a fun product to share with friends and have fun with. 
But other than that its, defiantly not my cup of tea but i will try and stick it out to see the plumping benefits and how long it actually tingles for all i need now though is to be more brave.

The one i have is called Punch Bowl, try you dare!

Have you ever tried lip plumping products what are your thoughts?

Taylor Swift Wonderstruck

Monday, 11 February 2013

So this perfume has done plenty of rounds in the online blogging beauty land so why not add too that?

 First of all the Bottle... it's so mesmerizing i could just sit there for to long more than i care to admit just moving it to catch the light, just to see the holographicness look amazing but who does that. Not me......

I bought this on a whim without even testing it out just because i wanted to try it and the price it was at, was too good to miss. But i have to say that whim paid off and it is surprisingly a really good scent. 
To me it smells fresh full of fruity sweet vanilla notes but it's described to have apple blossom, peach and raspberry + many others none of which i can detect, but regardless it's a beautiful girly scent and it reminds me of a Bratz doll i once had which came with it's own perfume. So all in all i get the hype around this little bottle of amazing'ness and for the price it's so worth a try. 

I picked up the 30ml Eau de Parfum for £13 at boots but at the moment you can get the 50ml bottle for £17.40  Bargain!

Have you tried this perfume would you agree with all the hype?

Benefit They're Real Mascara Review

Sunday, 10 February 2013

 I purchased Benefit's They're Real Mascara a few days before Christmas for a gift to myself as you do and boy i'm glad i did, it's just wow.

Upon using this mascara i didn't realize that it has a plastic bristled brush something i don't get on well with but i persevered for the sake of £18 pounds and now i can't stop using it. I like it that much I've abandoned all my others because it's really that good. 

It intensify's, lengthens and makes my fair coloured lashes look amazing and even with my oily eye lids and skin it stays put throughout out my working day which is perfect and just what i want from just ONE mascara! 

Also i have found it doesn't clump and the best thing about it is the spiked bristles at the end of the brush not only does it help to separate the top lashes it's a savior in helping to coat my bottom ones too.
The little instructions that come in the box work a treat and help get the best out of this mascara to.

Such an amazing product so worth the price tag.

   What Benefit products would you recommend?

Loverdose Diesel

After about a year or so of smelling this perfume i finally decided it had to be mine. It's been around for quite some time, but now it's finally mine. Diesel Loverdose in my eyes is much more of a mature scent for myself.....

As i'm the kind of girl who sticks to scents full of sweet, citrus'y fruity goodness.
 I like to try new things so this defiantly appeals to me as it's not totally different to others i use. 
So the best way for me to describe this is it's, earthy, woody, sweet orange'y with i feel a hint of floral'ness going on once it's settled onto clothing and skin. 
The names quite fitting considering that doom depressing day is looming upon us (valentines day!) and although the website description feels you with hope and a chance that you WILL have a line of attractive men trailing behind you i wouldn't be able to say that's 
happened but one day most likely in my dreams....

Moving swiftly on, i love this Eau de Parfum and it's so worth a sniff next time your out doing some shopping. I purchased the 30ml bottle from boots at £32.40 as they have 10% off selected fragrances at the moment, but if you fancy something a little lighter they also do this in a Eau de Toilette version with a slightly different scent which is just as good but i just preferred this one.
Also it's staying power is great it fizzles out throughout the end of the day but the scent is still detectable which is a bonus! 

What's your all time favourite signature scent?
