a quick collective beauty haul.

Over the past few weeks I have evidently gone a bit mad in the shops and online, but only mostly with beauty products. I thought I'd take a few pics, make a few comments...share 'em with you and whatnot.

Some of these products I have had for a few weeks and have managed to try them, so for these said products, I will share with you a mini review. I also threw in a few samples that I picked up from a couple of beauty counters.

Enjoy :) 

  • steamcream {boots £5.50 each sale}
  • botanics mattifying gel cream {boots £.3.32 offer}
  • body shop - japanese cherry blossom body lotion {£1 sale}
  • body shop - wild cherry puree body lotion {£1 sale}

  • MAC brush kit by Julie Verhoeven x4 {selfridges £39.50}
  • NARS sheer matte foundation (SAMPLE) {selfridges}- I have only used this once but I think I am actually in love with this. I didn't need too much to give me good coverage and it stayed matte for the entire day without powder. I must buy it in full size!!
  • YSL le teint touche eclat foundation (SAMPLES) {boots}

  • bio-oil (200ml) {costco 2 for £21} - I have been a fan of bio-oil for quite some time now. Even though I can be quite lazy with it, I use it for my body to make my skin a lot more moisturised and it helps to slowly fade some scars I have on my legs.
  • body shop - lychee blossom body mist {£3 sale} - As soon as I bought this it went straight into my handbag. It's good to use during the day as your perfume starts to fade away and I always get compliments on the scent.
  • seche vite {urban outfitters £5.00 sale}
  • essie nail polishes (l-r 'school of hard rocks', 'power clutch', 'case study') {cheapsmells £4.95 each offer} - I absolutely LOVE the formula for essie nail polishes. The brush could be a bit thicker and softer, but the formula totally makes up for it.
What have you bought recently?

  1. Wow you've been busy shopping! Let me know how you get on with the ysl foundation. I have the stream cream from a while back, that's a great offer boots is doing. Love the nail polishes btw, xoxo.

    1. I will do! I've used it once and it seems okay, I wanna give it a few more tries though...for when I go out for the entire day.
      Thanks x x
