Weekend Haul | EG

Hiya everyone! I’m so sorry that I haven’t blogged for two weeks, but I’ve had a lot of work to do recently, and I’ve finally gotten chance to sit down and write a post for all of you!

This week I’m going to show you what I’ve bought recently, which is quite a lot more than I usually would do as I got paid and thought I’d treat myself ( a lot )


The Shirt Dress.

The first thing I picked up was this gorgeous shirt dress, which was £19.99 from New Look. I’ve been staring at this dress for so long now, and have tried it on atleast three times. This time I tried it on, and new I had to buy it. The pattern is so gorgeous, and as grey is one of my favourite colours to wear I knew I had to get it. It was actually my friend that persuaded me to buy this, as is the case with most of these items.

Cactus.

Today I went into ikea, and as I walked down to the tills, I saw these three cactus sitting together and thought they were so adorable! Yet again, my friend told me to buy them and here I am adoring them. They look so cute all together on my dressing table, and for just £4.50 for all three, you can’t go wrong.

Makeup.

The first makeup piece I bought was the MUA moisturising primer. I have a love for primers, and thought a moisturising one would be so good as a two in one kind of product. The packaging is so simple and looks lovely in my makeup organiser and I can’t wait to use this product and test it out!

The second product I bought was the Freedom Pro Studio fixing spray. Sadly, the matte spray had ran out, which was the one I was looking for. However, at around £5 I thought I might as well try this. My makeup seems to come off easier as I have oily skin, so I thought I would try a fixing spray to see if all of the rave reviews are right.

Have you guys bought anything you love recently?

Are there any blog posts you would like to see?

Have a lovely day,

Mini Haul | EG

Recently I went into town with some of my friends and bought a few things. After not blogging for a week or two I thought it was about time I wrote something up for you guys.

These are just the bits of makeup that I bought from a few places.  

After seeing that primark have a huge new make up range, I decided to try their new bb cream. I prefer using bb cream to foundation because it sits nicer on my face and gives my skin a more even look.

  
I got one of lightest ones because im quite pale and I definitely didn’t want the dreaded orange line along my jaw. From the picture, you can see that it matches my skin nicely and is not cakes. Of course, I only did a swatch and didn’t rub it in as I would on my face.

Personally, I really like this product. It smells slightly like cucumber which is really refreshing and it is also very moisturising. However it isn’t extremely pigmented, but when it’s priced at only £2.50 I’m not going to complain that it isn’t Mac quality.

The next thing I bought was a concealer. In the T.J Hughes in my city centre they sell all of the w7 range and loads of nice makeup. I decided to pick up the ‘go’ concealer as it seems pretty similar to my benefit ‘boi-ing’ concealer and I don’t want to run out of it.

                   
The ‘go’ concealer is extremely similar to the benefit concealer because it has the same consistency and colour. I actually got a lighter colour in the w7 concealer so it will lighten my under eyes. I like using a wax concealer because I find that it lasts alt longer than liquid. I got this for just £2.99 which I think is great considering how similar it is to the benefit concealer.

The next thing I got was another mascara. I currently use the waterproof max volume flash by rimmel. This is the best mascara I’ve ever used, I find that it looks even nicer on my lashes than the ‘they’re real’ by benefit. This isn’t on sale anymore, so I picked one up in T.J Hughes for just £3.99.

The last thing I bought is definitely my favourite. Primark have also started doing lip crayons and when I saw this one I fell in love with it.

  

It’s a velvet matte lip crayon and was just £2! It feels really lovely to apply and doesn’t dry my lips. It is quite a cool toned brown-pink colour. Combined with a lighter pnik nude colour it looks really nice with some shadows from the w7 in the nude palette.

Have you guys bought any new things you love?

Have a lovely day!
