Haul Part Two

Hey Guys,

I’m back with part two of my recent haul. Today I’m talking about the items I purchased in a blog sale.

I would definitely recommend blog sales, they’re a great way to grab a bargain!

  • Nars Blush in Amour: This is probably my favourite purchase I’ve made recently. It is my first ever Nars product and I am really happy with it. It’s the most gorgeous pink colour that I think will work on a lot of different skin tones.  And even though it’s hardly been used, I managed to get it for a bargain price. I’m going to do a full review on this product so watch out for that.
  • 17 Blush in First Flush: I think I went a little blush mad recently, but its fine! Again this is really nice light pink shade. For a cheaper brand this pigmentation is really good and I’m happy I bought this.
  • Illamasqua Powder Shadow in Bronx : This is a gorgeous shimmery gold/bronze colour. Again I am really happy with this product and I can’t wait to try some looks with it.
  • Revlon Matte Lipsticks in shades 002 Pink Pout and 011 Stormy Pink: I really like both of these shades.But Pink Pout is actually a good dupe for M.A.C Please Me they are really similar.
There you have it. I think I got some really nice stuff and all for the bargain price of £30!

Haul Part One

Hey Guys,
I am back today with a haul, a two part haul. I have a couple of items that I purchased in superdrug during the week and a couple of items that i purchased on a blog sale last week as well.
First part one the items from Superdrug.  Recently I have used up a lot of my make-up purely because I haven’t had the money to repurchase anything. However I recently started a new job so I thought I would treat myself.

  • Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation : I’ve been wanting to try this foundation for  a while as I’ve heard quite good things about it. I’ve used it twice and I have to say that I am quite liking it.
  • Sleek Eyebrow Kit : This is something that I felt I have to buy. I must admit that my eyebrows are the one thing on my face that gets neglected and I just wanted to see if I paid more attention to them if it made a difference.  So I think this product is a good place to start.
  • Bourjois Cream Blush 02: Again this a product that I have heard quite a lot about and was itching to try. I have never owned a cream blush before and to be honest they have always scared me a little bit. But I decided to bight the bullet and go for it. I picked this gorgeous Coral shade which I thought would be perfect for spring and summer.
  • MUA Blusher in shades, 01 and 02: These were just something I thought I should try as I liked the colours and they were only £1 each, bargain. 
  • MUA Cover & Conceal in Natural: Again this was another product that interested me and for only £2 I thought why not! I have used this once or twice and I like it. I don’t know if i like it as much as other Concealers I have tried but I’ll let you know. 

Just to let you know, Superdrug currently has a 3 for 2 offers across all of their cosmetics. So there are some bargains to be had!

Lush: Ocean Salt Facial Scrub

Hey Guys,
Sorry about the lack of posts recently, I’ve just started a new job so I’ve been running around like a headless chicken and had no time to post.  However I have had time to shop ;).
Today, though, I’m back with another lush review.  Today I’m talking about the Ocean Salt facial scrub.  Again this was a product I received in a gift set for my birthday.
I absolutely love this scrub. It’s amazing.  The smell is a little meh, I don’t love it but I don’t dislike it so it doesn’t really bother me. 
The only thing that I would say is it’s very abrasive so if you have really sensitive skin I wouldn’t recommend it. However I like to use once a week to get a really deep clean. 
This is one I will be repurchasing when I’ve finished because I have enjoyed using it so much.
Have you ever tried this? What is your favourite facial scrub?

Lush: Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub

Hey Guys,

If you saw my birthday haul you’ll notice that my lovely boyfriend bought me some goodies from lush! I’ve had a chance to use most of them now so I thought I’d let you know my thoughts on them.


So today I’m going to review the Rub Rub Rub shower scrub.  I really like this scrub it’s not to abrasive which I like because I can use it every day.

The smell is nice enough, it’s not my favourite smell but it’s okay.  
The only thing that worries me is the fact the product is quite runny so I don’t think it’s going to take very long to use the whole tub. So if I was to repurchase this I don’t know if I’d get value for money.
Speaking of the fact it’s runny, its also blue and really reminds me of a blue slush puppy that you used to get back in the day! (Anybody else get that or just me?)
Overall I think I’d like to try some different scrubs from lush before I would repurchase this one but I am enjoying using this.
Have you tried this product? How did you get on with it?

M.A.C Studio Sculpt Foundation

Hey Guys,

Recently you saw that I purchased the Studio Sculpt foundation from M.A.C. so I thought I would let you know my thoughts on it.


I picked this foundation up in NW20.The first thing that I noticed was the smell. This foundation stinks, it sort of smells of burnt coffee. You can’t smell it once it’s on your face but while your applying it the smell it pretty strong.  
If you can ignore the smell the consistency of this foundation is actually really nice its not to thick but it’s quite easy to work with. Having said that, I think, that the best way to apply this foundation is to use your finger as it warms it up and makes it even easier to work with. I would say it’s a medium coverage, you can still see my freckles underneath it, and if you can stand the smell it’s quite buildable as well.
Overall I will use all of this foundation but I definitely don’t think I’ll be repurchasing it, just because M.A.C do loads more foundations that I love.
Have you tried this foundation? Do you like it?
