Haul Time!


It has been quite a while since i’ve done a haul, I have a feeling that may be due to the fact that I am incredibly poor.  Damn you Europe flights!  However, over the last month or so I have still managed to do some damage so I thought I would share with you some of my cheeky little purchases.

First of all I went on a little bit of a Clinique spree, they had a great offer on when you spend $60 or over so I spent way over $60 and got a few free travel sized items which will be perfect for my trip.  The first item I wanted was the newish Clinique Lip Pop in Nude Pop – I’ve seen so many people in the beauty world swoon over these lipsticks so I new I just had to get my hands on one, they are quite a hefty price but I’m quite happy I forked out the money for one.  The nude pop is such a great everyday colour that can easily be applied without a mirror, bonus!  Another lip product I got was the Clinique Superbalm Moisturising Gloss in Apricot – I just thought this would be perfect so chuck in my handbag and use on a day to day basis when I need something that will moisturise my lips as well as adding a hint of colour.  I’m definitely taking this with me to Europe, my lips always get so dry in the cold so this will be a lifesaver!  The last Clinique product I purchased was the Moisture Surge Facial Spray – This promises to be a thirsty skin relief spray which is exactly what I need!  My dry spots are out of control at the moment so I want to grab anything that will help.  I’ve only had this a few days now but it feels so lovely and refreshing, I think it will be lovely underneath makeup as well.  Again it’s going to be another item I take on the plane with me!

As I mentioned my dry spots have been out of control of late!  It almost feels like sand paper!  So I really wanted to find something that will really deal with it.  I’ve been using mask upon mask upon mask but they have only been doing so much so when I heard ttsandra mentioned the La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 Soothing Repair Balm I thought my prayers had been answered.  Sandra explained that after a bout of vigorous exfoliating she found her skin extremely dry and sand paper like so she began to use the Cicaplast to reduce the texture issues.  This is exactly my issue, texture!  So I purchased this a couple of days ago and have been using it twice a day so fingers crossed this really works, I will keep you posted.

So as you may know I am new to the whole lip gloss game, so on my last trip to the shops I wanted to pick up a few more to see what was really out there.  First up was a recommendation from a lovely reader, its the Maybelline The Elixer in Mauve Mystique – These feel like absolute heaven on the lips, so creamy and not sticky at all.  I’m not sure about the colour I got though but we shall see. This gloss was also a recommendation from a lovely reader it’s the NYX Butter Gloss in Angel Food Cake – This is such a stunning colour, that very in pinky brown shade which goes with everything, I’ve got some really good use out of this one so far and I’ve found that pairing it with MAC Whirl lip pencil looks really beautiful.  After hitting up the NYX stand I headed over to trusty old Rimmel and grabbed one of their Oh My Gloss glosses, for the life of me I cannot find what shade this is in but again it’s that pinky brown shade that I am in love with at the moment.  I haven’t used this a lot at the moment but I  imagine I’ll love it.  My final product is a nail polish, it’s the Maybelline Colour Show in Pinkalicious – This is a stunning muted neon pink that I have been wearing on my nails since I purchased it, it applies like a dream however, it does chip quite easily but I really can’t complain for the price.

So there we have it another day another haul.  I just can’t help myself sometimes!  What have you been buying recently?
