Hello everyone! Here is my first make up haul – hopefully the first of many!
So, I was originally going to do a Superdrug haul, but some of the things I wanted weren’t available at Superdrug, and then I added a wholeee lot of other stuff so it made sense to do a make up haul instead. Everything in this haul was bought online (except the things from Asda) and the reason for that is literally because it was waaaaaay too cold outside.
I hope you guys enjoy reading!
#1 10pcs Kabuki Style Professional Make up Brush Set
Called 10pcs Kabuki Style Professional Make up Brush Set Foundation Blusher Face Powder on eBay
The first thing I bought was this 10 piece make up brush set for £4.90 (with free delivery) from eBay. My favourite thing about these brushes is the price. Seriously, the fact that you can get TEN great brushes for under £5 just makes me really happy. Also, they’re great brushes – exactly as described!
#2 Sleek Face Form Contour Kit Medium
This kit is £9.99 from Superdrug and was actually recommended from a friend who’s been using it for a while. She looooves it. I was originally going to buy the kit from the Superdrug website but it was out of stock and, like I said, it was absolutely freeeeezing so there was no way I was going to trek over to the nearest Superdrug, which is why I didn’t actually manage to get it. But, I will be getting it soon. Definitely. It has highlighter, bronzer and contour powder all in one and is the perfect size so you can pop it in your bag, ready to use, for when you’re on the go.
#3 Anti-Blemish Solutions Liquid Makeup from Clinique 30ml
Ok, so I was running low on foundation so went ahead and bought the foundation I usually use which is this one in shade 03 and is £25.00. I’ve been wearing this foundation for just over a year now as I have a few small marks, which it covers really well. It’s also light on the skin and lasts up to 3 months if you wear it every day. However, recently the coverage hasn’t been as good as it used to be (or maybe it’s just me!) so it just may be time for a new foundation. Any thoughts?
#4 Mac Lipstick in Whirl
Swatch of Mac Whirl
Mac lipsticks have become so popular (over the last few years, especially) and I was looking for some nude lipsticks so I thought I’d add to my Mac collection and try out Whirl. It’s a brown lipstick that I, personally, think looks good on everyone and was £15.50 from Selfridges. I absolutely love it and can’t believe I didn’t get it sooner! It quickly became my everyday lipstick. And I mean really quickly (on the day I bought it).
#5 COLLECTION 2000 SUPER SIZE FAT LASH MASCARA
To be honest, I’m not really fussy when it comes to mascara because I always curl my lashes anyway, but I was in need of a new one so literally picked up the first one I saw. I’ve used this mascara before and it’s actually really good, especially seeing as it was only £2.98 from Asda.
#6 KIKO MILANO SMART LIP PENCILS in 700 (Light Sienna) and 710 (Rouge Noir)
Left – Right: Light Sienna and Rouge Noir
Now, I didn’t actually get these lip pencils, but there is a reason that they’re mentioned, and the reason is this: they’re £1.20 each. Yes, that’s right £1.20! I’m so in need of these lip pencils especially Rouge Noir, but the minimum spend on the KIKO website is £25 which is why I didn’t buy them. I mean, I literally only want these 2 things which make a total of £2.40, so how am I going to make the other £22.60 up? I’m just going to have to pay a trip to the KIKO store because I WILL be buying them.
#7 Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Liner 140 Intense Pink
So, there I was at Asda in the make up section, having a look around for a good lip liner. After a good 2 or 3 minutes of searching extremely thoroughly I came across this one for £3.98 and really, really, reallyyy liked the 140 (Intense Pink) one. I absolutely love the colour: it’s basically a slightly (very slightly) darker pink, doesn’t look fake and isn’t too bright, making it exactly what I was looking for. I haven’t actually used it yet, but I am looking forward to wearing it soon.
#8 COLLECTION 2000 Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Eyeliner 1 Black
I’ve been using this black eyeliner for a looong time now and had lost my old one, so it was time for a new one. You can get it from Superdrug, Asda, Wilkos – basically any high street store that sells make up. It was £2.98 and lasts for hours and by that I mean HOURS. I’d say it was just as good as some of the pricier liners and the fact that its shaped like a pen with the felt tip makes it soooo much easier to apply. I 100% recommend!
I also bought a couple of non-make up things, which I’ve added to the list below.
#9 Ghost Deep Night Eau de Toilette Spray 30ml
My sister got this for her 21st birthday and I loooooove it so had to buy one for myself. It’s amazing. If you’ve ever smelt Hugo Boss Deep Red before, let me tell you now they are extremely similar. I see myself wearing this a lotttt. It was £20 for 30ml from Asda and is also available in Boots and Superdrug as well as other high street stores. However, be warned as the 30ml is actually really small. I’d recommend getting the 75ml if you know you’re going to wear it often.
#10 Charlotte Crosby’s 3 Minute Belly Blitz DVD
Called CHARLOTTE CROSBY’S * 3 MINUTE BELLY BLITZ * DVD HOME FITNESS WORKOUT VIDEO on eBay
Ok, I know I’m like reallyyyyyyy late in buying this as it was made in 2014, but I’ve recently gained a little weight and found it on eBay for £5.99 so thought I’d try it out. It worked really well for her, so hopefully it’ll benefit me too once I start using it! For those of you that don’t know about this DVD, it’s basically a home fitness DVD with a range of different exercises to help you lose weight.
