Beauty Haul

Hi Guys!

Have you ever just went to a shopping centre for just one thing that you actually needed and then end up coming home with a couple of bags of stuff? Well that happened for me..Oops! So I thought I'd do a haul for you! I limited myself to two shops... Boots & The Body Shop. 

So I'll Start with Boots...

First up is Soap & Glory "Glow All Out" Luminizing radiance face powder.

I have been on the hunt for a powder highlight for my cheeks, as I currently have Benefit's High-beam which is a liquid highlight. Although I love High-beam, I wanted to try a powder highlight and this looked perfect! 

 Next up is Maybelline's Rocket Volume Mascara 

This is the newest mascara Maybelline has brought out, and of coarse me being an avid lover of there mascaras I decided to give it a go! The thing that has me excited about this product is the wand, it has the plastic bristles which I think gets right into my lashes without clumping them, some people don't like the plastic wands but I love them!

Next we have A Revlon Colour-burst Lip Butter (Shade - Lollipop 075)

I love the Revlon Lip butters so I decided to add this lovely fushia toned one to my lippy collection! These are so moisturising on the lips and the colour pay off is amazing! Cant wait to start wearing this one. 


I also bought another item from Revlon, The Super Lustrous Lipstick (Shade - Cherry Blossom 028)

I really wanted some more bright colour lip products because I want to force myself to be a bit more brave when it comes to lipsticks as I tend to stick with my Nudes! Looking first glance at this lipstick you think its going to be a deep red but it swatches totally different, It comes out a bright pink! Its a lovely colour and I cant wait to start wearing this, such a good colour for Summer!

Last up from Boots is a nail item, Models Own Nail Beads (Black)

Nail art has become very big over the last few months! This product is designed to give your nails a 3D affect, you apply the beads onto wet nail polish and let it dry. On first glance I think this product is going to be a great dupe for the Ciate Caviar Limited Edition Manicure Set - Black Pearls which retails for €23.86 get it here on Asos ! This models own version retails for €6.10 which I think is amazing if you don't have the money for the Ciate one! Models Own does different colours in the beads, on the top of my head I think there is green, pink, gold and yellow as well as the black, so you could match the beads to whatever nail polish you have around the house!

Next on to the Body Shop buys-

First up is two Lip Balms (Mango & Sweet Lemon Flavour)

First up these smell FANTASTIC! You will have to stop yourself from eating them! I love lip balms and have never tried any from the body shop so I'm excited to see how these will turn out, the smell alone gets my vote already :)

Next is the Coconut Hand Cleanse Gel

I love keeping hand sanitizers in my bag at all times, I'm not a germaphobe but I just like to have it on me in case I feel the need to clean my hands and I cant get to a wash room! This stuff is amazing I opened it when I got home and when you apply it you cant smell anything, but when the sanitizer dries into your hands, this like most hand santizers dries very fast, It then smells like Coconuts! Its amazing, It leaves your hands so soft and smelling beautiful for ages. Very impressed with this product!

Last up is my favourite thing to have on a treat night, Some bath bombs!

Unfortunately these don't have names on them so I cant tell you which ones they are but they look pretty distinctive, So if you want to get your hands on some, just pop in to the store and I'm sure you will find them :) If you don't know what a bath bomb is, It's a round ball that when dropped into your bath filled with hot water it will "burst" open with cleansing agents, oils, colours and scents. These are super duper relaxing! Would really recommend for a chill night!

That's my haul! Hope you enjoyed & thanks for reading! If you would like me to review any of these items or have any questions just drop me a comment and I will have no bother doing that for you :)
