Now, I don’t plan for these to be monthly feature on my blog but apparently I can’t help spending my money so here is another Haul for you all, because I’m sure you haven’t read enough of these already. I literally can’t believe it has only been a month since my last haul, I have a serious problem developing!
I went into town and ended up spending even more of my money because I just couldn’t help myself. I also bought myself some things because it is my sister’s birthday on the 1st and I ordered her some real techniques eye brushes (I’ve already given them to her so don’t worry, I haven’t ruined the surprise) and of course I had to treat myself too.
The first things I bought this month along with my sister’s birthday present were the EcoTools Six Piece Essential Eye Set and the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. I would always consider buying and put them in my shopping bag but never actually go through with it because I was never sure if they would be worth it.
I really love the idea of EcoTools brushes. I love the bamboo handles, I think they look really beautiful and I love that they’re recycled so they’re great for the environment. These brushes are so soft. I have other brushes but I think these are softer as well as super affordable. I’m excited to try them and see how they fare out.
We’ve all heard a lot about the real techniques sponge and how it is a dupe for the beauty blender, which I don’t have because it always seemed ridiculously overpriced for a sponge and I’ve always preferred using brushes. But I thought I would give it a go and see if it was worth the hype. I haven’t used it yet but it feels super soft but also pretty durable so I’m actually pretty excited about it.
I then when to town and spent a whole lot more money, which wasn’t my intention but I just cannot help myself! I was doing great until we went into Superdrug and I caved. I picked up The Nudes Palette by Maybelline New York. I’ve seen a lot of posts on this and the L’Oreal Paris La Palette Nude. Which I almost got as well but they only had the Rose version and since I just bought the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette I didn’t really think I needed it. Even if I felt like I did I was trying to be responsible. I’m really intrigued by this palette as it has quads, trios and duos. It’s really well thought out and would be a great beginning palette as all of the instructions are clear on the back. It was on offer for 2 for £10 as well which is awesome and I’m so impressed by the affordability plus it has some really pretty neutral colours with a mix of matte and shimmer shadows.
I then went into Boots. Is anyone else’s Boots and Superdrug right next door to each other? It’s like a recipe for disaster every time I’m in town. I went in looking for a new mascara and I went straight to the Bourjois counter, because they have my favourite mascara and I picked it up. Bourjois always has a 3 for 2 offer so I thought I would take advantage of it. It’s the Volume Glamour Mascara Ultra Volumateur in Noir Ébéne 06. It is great for volume and one I keep going back to. I also recommended it to my sister and she loves it as well. We’ve both been using it for a long time now.
I wanted to get the Sleek Blush By 3 but I couldn’t find it in Superdrug so I hunted all of the make-up stands in Boots looking for a new Blush. My favourite is by Revlon but I wanted to try something new. Then I remembered that Esté from Essie Button had talked about the blushes by Bourjois, so I had a look. I decided to go for their blush in 48 Ashes of Rose. It’s a super pretty matte rose-pink.
The last thing I bought was the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation in 51 Light Vanilla. I already have the Healthy Mix Foundation and it is my favourite. I have used the Serum before but wanted to go back to it.. I got this a shade lighter than the foundation which I already have because it is better suited to my skin tone even though with the darker shade there is not much difference and it’s not noticeable by anyone else but me. My skin loves this stuff, it really is hydrating and if you have problems with dry flaky skin then this is a great foundation!
That’s it for my haul today and I really am hoping these don’t become a monthly feature because my bank is probably going to hate me! I accidentally dropped my bank card behind my chest of drawers and I still managed to spend my money so even taking my card away from me doesn’t help! I hope you enjoyed reading this, if you have made it this far! I love reading hauls because it’s always interesting to see what other people are buying.
