Just a little haul post... :)

Sunday 25 April 2010

Hellooo bloggys :) hehe.

So today I went on a much needed shopping trip to my local high street and picked up a few lovilies on my way around town (Y)...

Above is my little loot from Primark, which i love, as it is just so CHEAP! Everytime I go in there I seem to go a little crazy and pick up everything! But to day I stopped myself and bought the scarf for £1.50 which I love as it so colourful and I bought some gladiator sandles and a bright coral cardigan which I just could restist for summer. The sandals were £4 and the cardigan was £6 - BARGAIN!  

Next I popped into New Look and picked up this pretty polka dot tank top which is perfect for summer, and was only £10! :)

Then it was onto the pound shop to pick up a few more baragins!

Exfoliating gloves! Which will hopefully solve any of my fake tan problems in the future! :D

I also bought...

... these! :)

While I was in the Pound Shop i saw the Maybelline Dream Mousse Shadow in Plum Temptation and decided to try it as I love their foundation. I also picked up VO5 Extreme Style Surf Spray, £2.50, and 2True Lip n Cheek Tint, £1.99, when I popped into Superdrug.

I tried out all of these when I got home and here are the results...

Maybelline Dream Mousse Shadow looked promising but on closer expection I discovered that it really wasn't as good as I first thought. Although the packaging could deceive you, I think this is a rip-off off real Maybelline products, as the amount in the eyeshadow was much less than my amount in my Maybelline Cream Blush, which I purchased a while ago in Superdrug...

But to be honest, I should have expected that from the pound shop. Other than that, I liked it, the consistency was good, but I didn't think the colour necessarily suited me, so I will not be re-purchasing...

On the other hand, the 2True Lip n Cheek Tint is absolutely beautiful and I love it. It is an obvious dupe to Benifits Benetint, but a lot lot cheaper. I loved the suble flush this gave me, and I was really happy with the simple application!

I then tested out the VO5 Extreme Style Surf Spray which i found worked well when scrunching and gave a nice beachy feel to my hair. It did, however make it a bit cruchy and stiff, so I would't recommend if you like your hair soft and shiny...

Sorry about the blurry eyed look in this picture, whoooppps :)

I hope you liked my little haul and reviews :) Im off now to hike 20 miles and camp for my Duke of Edinbrough Award, and all i have packed at the moment is make-up and dolly shoes... oh dear, me and camping do not go together well! :) Wish me luck!



  1. I love the scarf, so pretty!

    Aha, me and camping don't go well together either! :L
    Good luck with it :) x

  2. Lovely haul chick :)!
    Ahh i had those sandals last summer from primark and loved them:) so glad theyve got them again I'll have to go get them :)

    I agree with what you said about the dream matte mousse shadow too!!

    Have a great time camping :) I Love going camping haha (Apart from the actual staying in a tent bit lmao) Good luck babe have fun! :) xx

  3. Hahaha, me and camping dont go well together either hehe :)
    It was fun but it rained, and i got all wet hehe, and the walking 20 miles part was awful, but oh well! :) x

  4. I like those sandals! Plus those exfloiating gloves are a good bargain! I might have to hunt around the pound shop for some seeing as my sister is a little bit of a fake tan addict and keeps using my exfloiater which causes lots of arguments! x

  5. Hahaha, good idea :) I quite like them, for a pound shop purchase they are pretty good! :) xx

  6. I'm in love with those sandals!
    They're exactly what i've been looking for :)

  7. ..R May A..- Hehe thankyou, and go and get some from Primark! Only 4 quid! :)) xx
