Latest Haul

This was my most recent haul, from about 2 weeks ago (i'm proud of myself, i've barely bought anything since! This may not seem much of an achievement to most people but i am very proud of myself) when i took a little trip into Wimbledon and visited the shops that are my current Kryptonite: Superdrug and Boots.

Firstly i popped into Superdrug and, for me, got away with a very small amount! I picked up Sleek blush in Flamingo, GOSH foundation in porcelain ( i may have finally found my skins perfect match!) and GOSH nail polish in Bright Passion and Sweet Peach. Sweet Peach was on clearance and should have been half price (£2.50) but i found out when i got home and looked at my receipts (i really should start looking at them sooner!) that i had been really undercharged. I only paid £1.25 for Sweet Peach, a quarter of the full price, and, for some reason i have no idea why i only paid £1 for Bright Passion! I felt quite guilty about it, but also very pleased! Saved me a few bob, thanks Superdrug :)

Then i went to Boots and picked up a lot of bits:
Colorsport 24 hour eyeliner in black, Maybelline Falsies mascara in black, Collection 2000 eyeliner in Dig It, 17 Nail polish in Tropical Island, 17 nail polish in Orange Soda, 17 Eyeshadow in Funfair

i had a voucher for 150 extra points when you spent over a certain amount, and another for 50 points if i bought a 17 Eyeshadow. So i did, and it was 3 for 2 on 17! I also got Soap and Glory's Flake Away but forgot to photo it and I think i also got some boring lady things like tampons.

Swatches and reviews of these new products will be coming up! :)


  1. Oooh I bought the 24 liner to try as well, but in Brown. It was on clearance in Asda hence the Brown.

    I was a very good girl when I went into Boots today and bought nothing, despite having admired the Rimmel teal 60 seconds varnish on a shop assistants hands in another shop. I so wanted it, but I spent enough in there on Saturday. lol

  2. I love Gosh X-ceptional Wear foundation in Porcelain. It fits my skin so well and I just love it. <3

  3. would you do a swatch of the GOSH foundation in porcelain?? :)

  4. Ooooh, please swatch the Sleek blush, I was thinking of picking it up :)

  5. REVIEW THE MASCARA! pretty please :) I wish we had it in the US, I want to try it sososo bad.

  6. congrats on making it 2 weeks tho! That's SO HARD! I failed my ordering Meow samples :( I hope Canada can get the Falsies mascara!

  7. Sparklz and Shine:
    Wow, well done! I don't think i've ever gone into Superdrug or Boots and left empty handed :/

    I'm not used to applying foundation so at the moment it's applying a bit streaky but the colour is so good i'm delighted.

    Of course, will do that ASAP :)

    Eden Bue:
    No problem, will do it ASAP :)

    How odd that you don't have it in the US. Maybe you do but it's hiding under a different name...
    Anyway I will review it as soon as my current masara finishes (which should be soon as i'm sure i've had it for more than 6 months now) :)

    Thank you, it was really hard!
    I need to try Meow, i keep hearing such great things about them.

  8. Duuuuude, you have determination! Everytime I get paid I feel compelled to spend it all on makeup D;

  9. SilhouetteScreams:
    well the problem i have is that i don't have a proper job, so my pay is rather small :P Usually i am not half as good as this, so it was really hard actually!


I love comments and try to reply to every one i get.
