Beauty & Haircare Haul

Wednesday, 21 August 2013








I have a addiction. A shopping addiction. I swear, I can't go into a shop without picking something up! Whether it be Boots or a bloomin' garden centre! I always walk out with something new.

Over the past few weeks, i've done a tiny little bit (who am I tryna kid?!), I did this shopping a few weeks, within one day. I got all the above purchases from Boots & Morrisons. Only a dedicated shop-o-holic, such as myself, could walk into a supermarket looking for something to eat, and instead walking out with a blusher, an eye shadow, a hair treatment...and nothing to eat!


I'll start wth Boots.. 

Bourjois had a 3-for-2 offer on across all their makeup, and as I had been lusting over the new Color Boost lip sticks it would have been rude not to take advantage. I picked up the shade 'Peach on the beach', as it has been raved about and is the perfect coral pink shade, great for my upcoming holiday to Rhodes (3 weeks and 2 days to go, woo hoo!!!). I've also heard great things about the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation, so thought I would give it a go.. like I don't have enough foundations, but hey!
As they had a 3-for-2 offer, I decided to chose a nail varnish as my free item. I love that word, FREE.
It's a gorgeous neon blue shade, and in the 'So Laque' range, which I can imagine being similar to the Barry M Gelly Shine range. 

I FINALLY got my hands on the, much raved and loved about, La Roche Posay Effeclar Duo! I've been using this for about 2 weeks now and it has completely changed my skin. Full review coming soon :)

One thing missing from my skincare routine was a eye cream, I wanted something to use in the morning that would sooth my eyes and reduce any under eye circles. This eye roller from the Botanics range was a bargainess £4.48. 

Now onto Morrisons...

The V05 'Revive me daily' shampoo and conditioner was on offer for only '£1.95 each! I don't really have a holy grail shampoo/conditioner, I just buy what sounds good... I've used these a couple of times and my hair & I love them!

I picked up the Elvive Damage Care Conditioning Spray on a complete whim, I haven't heard anything about it, but i've been after a leave in conditioner, which won't weigh my hair down. My hair isn't dry from using too much heat, but because my hair is so thick ad curly, it can feel quite dry.

After hearing the lovely Anna, from Vivianna Does Makeup, rave about the Maybelline Colour 24 tattoo eye shadows, in the shade On & On Bronze, I knew I had to have it. I'm all for neutral eye shadows! I can't wait to give this a go, as either a base for eyeshadow or as an all over colour.

I probably have too many blushers. In fact.. I know I do.. :) I just coudn't resist this lovely pink/peach/coral shade from Collection 2000. Lavly for Summer.. or what is left of it.

I'm writing this blog post from my ipad, so i'm not 100% sure how it will turn out.. Fingers crossed!
