So the other day I went into Plymouth shopping. I absolutely love watching and reading hauls so I wanted to do one of my own!. I will say this isn’t a huge haul but I couldn’t afford too much!. However, I visited quite a few shops as there isn’t much in the town I live in, so when I go into Plymouth I end up going everywhere and buying as much as possible!. #retailtherapy If you will.
Make-up and skincare
Loreal matte infalliable foundation in porcelain (£8)
I’ve heard some amazing stuff about this but I have to say I’m not hugely impressed with it. I don’t think the coverage is that great. The bottle says it is high coverage but id argue medium at best. However, I realised later on you have to shake this before use, which I didn’t do so I will give this another shot. Update I have tried this again blending with my fingers in circular motions and shaking the tube and it went amazing!.
MUA undress your skin highlighter in pink shimmer (£3)
This highlighter is amazing!. This literally makes you feel like a unicorn. I had heard there was a hard coating on so you have too get rid of that first but once you do oh my gosh it is heaven. Super pigmented and so shimmery. This highlighter, Has stole my heart and for only £3 you cant go wrong).
MUA Luxe velvet lip laquer in tranquillity (£3)
I mainly got this as there was a 3 for 2 on and if there’s one thing I will always do it’s take advantage of a good offer on makeup. However, I own a few of these already so I knew I’d like it. This is a brown shade which isn’t usually my thing but what the hell I’m all for trying something new. The pigments great, The product lasts well and I really like it.
Lush – sugar srub, body scrub (£2.95)
The body shop – Shower gel in Vineyard Peach (£3 on sale!)
Nu-skin- Marine mud mask- £25
Okay, I’m going to start by saying I love Primark. It’s out there. I know some people think it’s tacky because it is so cheap which I agree with on some products that break after like 2 wears. However, I think for what you pay, this is one of the best clothing shops.
I only actually got one pair of shoes which is a shock horror for me really. They’re just a plain black pair of espadrilles for the summer. These we’re only around £4 which I think was amazing value. I also picked up my usual frilly pack of trainer socks.
I first picked up a pair of your bog standard leggings which go with pretty much anything. I also went for a pair of super high waist skinny jeans which are actually really skinny on me *cheers* (I can never find jeans that fit me right).
I brought a cute little pineapple candle. Yes I know I buy too many candles!. but it’s a pineapple. It smells of lemonade and kiwi’s with a coppery type finish and I just love it.
I also went for a perfume. This was a weird one for me as id never usually buy something like this from pimark as I thought it would smell so horrible and tacky for £2 but I gave it a shot and smelt a few and I actually really liked the scent of the fizzy berries. So I thought for £2 lets just give it a try and it’s actually really growing on me. I think I might get the pina colada one next time!.
Have you took advantage of the sales? what did you find?
Thankyou for reading,
