Barry M Chloé Eye haircare Haul L'Oreal Lush Nail Perfume Purity Rimmel Shu Uemura skincare
Collective haul - I have a spending problem + Update26.3.13
Hello lovelies, I have been meaning to do a haul post for the longest time but I sort of forgot and I'm pretty sure that I have for...
I have been meaning to do a haul post for the longest time but I sort of forgot and I'm pretty sure that I have forgotten some stuff as well. It would be a lie if I said that I was busy with uni stuff because to be frank, I hardly paid any attention. Although, I just recently found out that this Autumn, I will be attending the Universidad de País Vasco for a semester. It's not my first choice (or my top 3 choices) but after looking into it, I think that it is actually a perfect place for me, considering I am not a party sort of person and Basque Country would be a good place for me to do some research about my dissertation. Now, for the reason that I have been a bit of a bad blogger recently was that I was feeling a little bit lost and disappointed with how my blog is going and I made quite a few friends this semester so I was a little bit too busy socialising. Also, I found out I have grey hair...can you believe that?! Grey hair at twenty-one, way to make me feel old. Nonetheless, here we go with my recent splurges.
Recently I have been quite nail polishes happy. I was very excited with the Barry M new colours for Spring release. So I picked up a few shades as well as Rimmel 5 in 1 Nail Care to use as a base coat because you don't want your nails turning yellow now do you?! The ones I picked up are Barry M Textured Nail Paint in Ridley Road because I love mint shade, especially during "Spring", Barry M Nail Paint in Blueberry because I saw StyleSuzi wearing this shade in her video and I liked it and Barry M Hi Shine Gel Effect Nail Polish in Lychee because sometimes I just want to feel like a lady. I have been using all of these polishes in the past few weeks and I have to say that I am very impressed with Ridley Road because I had it on for about a week and it didn't even chip just a little bit.
I told you this haul has been collecting for a very long time because I have already wrote reviews about the L'Oreal Paris Glam Shine Stain Splash in Romy and Marilyn. However, the review of L'Oreal Lumi Magique Concealer is coming. I brought these whilst they were on 3 for 2 offer (usually a time where I buy everything...).
This just really goes to show you how I should stop going into Boots because I can't stop myself from buying things. However, I don't feel that guilty about these because I got them with my Boots points and they were 50% off! Bargains! I have been wanting to try Philosophy Purity made simple one step facial Cleanser for ages now after hearing so many good things about it. I'm a massive fan of SteamCream but recently I have been finding myself looking at other moisturisers to replace it because I got bored of being faithful so enters Philosophy Hope in a Jar. There is me hoping that it doesn't work as well because it is rather expensive at £34 for 60ml.
If you haven't seen my review of this brush yet...what have you been doing?! Head over to this post here, you won't be disappointed. You can get Michel Mercier Detangling Brush For Normal Hair from BeautyBay.com for £11.81.
After burning a few hair brushes with my hair dryer, I thought it was time to purchase a brush that is made especially to use to a hair dryer, I brought this at the same time as the Michel Mercier one. You can get this Head Jog Pink Ceramic Ionic Radial Brush 80 60mm for £4.95. It works very well for me so far.
What happened was...I was quite sad one day, to cheer myself up, I went into Debenhams and brought myself this little beauty because I thought the bottle was cute. I didn't bother getting the big bottle because I have never finished a bottle of perfume in my life. Plus, I thought it was time to change up my scent a little bit with this cutie Chloé Signature Eau de Parfum 20ml for £25.
My old eyelash curler which I have been using for about five years started to give way and well, everyone in the blogosphere raves about this little beau. Now I see why, it is worth spending money on these things. Again, I will write a full review of this because since I have it in my hand now, I don't think I could ever go back to the unnamed eyelash curlers. Get your Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler for £20, you won't regret it!
When I am sad, I stop being sad and go to Lush instead. This should be my motto in life. So, yeah, I went to Lush and totally got sold by the sale assistants which will pursue you until you have something in your hands. Since it's Easter, it would be rude of me not have a little something from Lush Easter range to lift my mood. Say hi to the Fluffy Egg, I can't wait to use it. I think I will be picking up the Henata before it goes as well. Forgot to bring this home but I also brought myself a giant tub of Lush Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly because it used to always cheer me up in the shower.
That is all for my recent haul. Hopefully, I won't be buying anything else for a while but knowing me, that probably won't happen because right now I'm thinking about hunting down the new Revlon Lip Butter shades. Also, I might be going this Paris this Easter so that means Sephora... Goodbye money. That's all for now, hope you all have a lovely Easter! Even Though the weather outside looks more like Christmas.
Anything you have been dying to get recently?
Also, suggestion on how to get to Paris for cheap? and where to go/what to do in Paris?
