Its been a while since I’ve done a little haul, as with a stash as large as mine I often feel guilty about adding more makeup to it as sometimes it feels as if it’s spiralling out of control! However on a recent shopping trip I couldn’t avoid picking up a few affordable bits and pieces!
Firstly in TK Maxx I came across a lot of items from the Tanya Burr Cosmetics range. I’ve previously tried a couple of glosses and nail polishes from the collection and really loved them, so I picked up the shades Champagne Toast and Exotic island to add to my stash. The best part is that they were only €3.99 each which was a great saving!
Next I visited Boots and spotted the Botanics All Bright Radiance Balm which I’d seen a lot of buzz about online. I’ve heard it is an affordable dupe for the Clarins Beauty Flash balm, and promises to give a beautiful radiance to the skin. This was on offer for €4 which was a fantastic price, I can’t wait to give it a go!
Next I popped into Penneys and picked up a fragrance atomiser for my handbag. It’s a great dinky little size that I can decant some of my favourite perfume into and carry around in my bag for top ups throughout the day without being worried that I’ll smash a glass bottle in my bag!
From the Penneys PS Love range I also picked up a makeup brush cleanser. I havent tried this yet but I’m hoping it”ll do a good job for quick spot cleaning my brushes. If its crap, at €2.50 at least it doesn’t break the bank.
I also picked up the Soap & Glory Drama Clean Micellar Water, which cost €8 for 350ml in Boots, which is pretty good value. I love the pink packaging, and upon using it last night I fell in love with the cucumber scent! Expect a full review on this one soon.
Finally, I picked up some replacement Deep Pore brush heads for my Clarisonic. I’d used these before and got on well with them, so thought I’d pick up another pack. They’re not cheap at €35 for 2 from Debenhams but they work well with my skin so I’ll keep repurchasing them! I plan on doing a skin care routine post soon, so keep your eyes peeled!
So there you have it- my mini haul! What beauty bits have you guys been buying lately?
