Haul part one.

Hi everyone! I'm sorry I haven't been posting much recently, I've been super tired every night I've got home from work experience, and blogger helpfully deiced to delete this post last night, so here we have my Wales haul (I'm sure I've mentioned it about a million times, but I was in Wales last weekend) -take two! 


This is a bit of a cheat, but I just want to start of with a few things I bought about two weeks ago, first of these much raved about Biore nose strips; 


I had really high hopes for these after all the blogger hype, however I was left really disappointed. Basically I followed all the instructions and stuff, but when it came to taking of the strip it was painful and had done nothing! I'm puzzled as to whether I did something wrong because so many people love these, please let me know if you've had a similar experience, I don't like to think I'm the only one these don't seem to work for! I will give these another go as I've only used one, I hope they work next time!

On a more positive note, I picked up one of my favourite skin care bits, the Nivea daily essentials express hydration primer. I love this stuff so much! It makes the application of my foundation a lot easier and it ends up looking much more even. I haven't even finished my last jar but I know I can't live without it so I had to stock up!


Moving on to what I bought on Wales, the first thing I picked up was this Nivea lip butter in `Caramel cream`;

Nivea Lip butter in `Caramel cream`- £2.25

I had been wanting  to try one of lip balms these since they came out and I really like this one, it smells just like shortbread!

I also bought the Maybelline Rocket Volum' mascara;



I'm not totally blown away by this mascara, I do like the effect it gives, but it transfers to underneath  my eye really easily and I end up with panda eyes by twelve O'clock, not a good look! I will keep using  this, but I'm not totally overwhelmed by it, lets just say, it's no holy grail item!

The only other shop I bought anything in was Primark, my home from home it seems non? 
I saw these lip crayons which are a blatant rip of the the Revlon Just bitten stains, which are a rip of the Clinique Chubby sticks, for just £1.50 each! I deiced on two shades, a  pretty pink and peachy- red :) 

Primark lip crayon's- £1.50 each

These are actually really nice! I wasn't expecting much for the price to be honest, but they have a great colour pay off and feel lovely on the lips. 

As always, I popped some of the face wipes into my basket, I'd just finished my other pack as well, so this was perfect timing.

Primark face wipes-  £1.00
I picked up two items of clothing, one being a crop top of course ;) I haven't actually got another long sleeved one, so that defo makes it ok... 

Primark Mickey mouse crop top- £6.00



But in all seriousness, I love this top! The print is so fun; give my anything Disney and I'll be happy, and I literally can't wait to wear it! The only slight downside is that it is very cropped, so I think I will have to stick to wearing it with skirts, which takes me nicely onto my last thing;

You guy's must know I love a good old skirt, and I've been looking for a nice maxi for a while now. This one caught my eye because the maxi part is actually sheer and then it has a little underskirt at the top.  
Primark black sheer maxi skirt- £5.00
I just thought that was so cool! I think it makes the simple black maxi a lot more interesting, and the best part? This beaut was only £5 in the sale down from £12! As I would have happily payed full price for this, I sauntered over to the till feeling very smug.


The reason this is part one of a haul is I also went shopping yesterday after work and I didn't want to shove it all together, so look out for that in the next few day's! 

What do you think of my picks? Do you have anything similar?

Love

  3. I had really dissapointing results when I tried the nose strips too. It actually left my skin inflamed till about 2 days later and caused bad itching too. I think it really just depends on your skin type and how well you look after your skin as to whether these work or not. Hearing the background of some people's skin and then their opinion of the product it mostly works on people who wear make up quite often and don't usually use exfoliaters. I'm just guessing though so don't take my word for it haha.

    1. It sounds like you've had a bad time with these as well! I can see what your saying about skin type so maybe that's it! X

  4. I will not return to nose strips after an awful experience which resulted in red, irritated and itchy skin! I don't think it was this brand but gah, my skin prefers a much more soothing process to rid it of blackheads. LOVE the mickey mouse crop, good old primark bargain! xx
