Beauty Haul

 Hi everyone,

On Sunday my boyfriend and I decided to make a trip to the Trafford Centre and even though I'm supposed to be saving for when we go to Paris, I must admit I did buy a few makeup bits and bobs. Some of these I have been meaning to get for a while now and some of them I just bought on a whim but they are mostly high street products so didn't cost too much :S

Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer (£5.49)

I have heard such good things about the Wake Me Up range by Rimmel so I thought I'd give the concealer a try. I think this is one that I'd use more under the eyes as it doesn't provide quite enough coverage for blemishes but it does give a lovely glow to your skin and make your eyes look more awake!

Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Matte lipstick in colour 101 (£5.49)

I have been in the market for a true, bright red lipstick for a while and Rimmel had an offer on where you get a free mascara when you spend £10 so I thought I'd go for this one. I haven't actually tried any of the Kate Moss lipsticks before so I'm a bit behind on the hype with this product but I’m really looking forward to giving it a go.

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Light Beige (£3.99)

I am currently using Clinique Almost Powder Makeup which I absolutely love but it's also a bit on the pricey side so I’m always open to try cheaper options. I have seen this mentioned on a few blogs recently and even though I’ve only used it a couple of times so far, I’m already really impressed with it.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Lycra Flex mascara (free!)

This is the mascara I got free for spending £10 on Rimmel products :) I've collected quite a few mascaras recently that I need to use up but I thought this was a fab offer so I definitely couldn't turn it down!

Barry M Nail Art Pen, White (£4.99)

I have seen some amazing nail art recently of different blogs, Pinterest, Instagram etc and quite a few of them mentioned that they had used the Barry M Nail Art Pens to achieve the look.

 Umberto Giannini Curl Friends Spray (£4.79)

If you saw my last post you will have seen that I have been trying to cut down on straightening my hair and leaving it curly instead. This product has been amazing for taming the frizz and making the curls more defined and this is now the second bottle I have bought. I also got another bottle of the Simple toner which is great if you have sensitive skin :)

Topshop Crescent Moon highlighter (£10)

I wasn’t planning on buying another highlighter but when I saw how lovely this one from Topshop was I just couldn’t resist! I’ll do a full review of this product once I’ve had a chance to use it a bit more.

Topshop Matte nail polish (£6)

I really don’t need any more nail polishes as I have been getting gel manicures but I really loved the look of this colour and I haven’t tried a matte polish before. I also got a free lipgloss for spending over £15 :)

Victoria’s Secret Love Spell body spray (£11)

Victoria’s Secret has just opened at the Trafford Centre and I was in there for ages spraying all the different body sprays and trying to decide which one to get! In the end I went for Love Spell which is a gorgeous Peach and Cherry Blossom scent.

Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation (£28)

This is about my 5th bottle of Estee Lauder foundation and I’ve never stuck with a foundation for so long before. I absolutely love this product as it is one of the few foundations that I have found that I can rely on to stay put throughout my long days at work.

So that’s everything! I got a couple of freebies in there which I am chuffed with but I definitely won’t be buying much makeup for a while now as I am well and truly stocked up!

Have you guys tried any of the products I bought? Which products have you bought recently that you would recommend or say to avoid?

Thanks for reading :) xx


  1. @Kate Musgrove Thank you :) I love the Trafford Centre too, only problem is I end up spending too much whenever I go! x

  2. I love double wear too - I have never found a foundation that lasts as well, perfect if you need something for all day! x

  3. @Charlotte Philpotts Definitely, it's my 'can't live without' product and the only foundation that I've found that lasts on my skin allll day! :) x
