Superdrug, The Body Shop, Illamasqua, Bath & Body Works and Primark
So, I’ve done a little shopping recently and I thought I’d share what I’d bought. Some of these things were essentials but some are just things I wanted and with deals I couldn’t resist.
So from Superdrug I got three lots of dry shampoo. My plan was to straighten my hair my often and use the dry shampoo. So far I’ve not had the time or the inclination to do so. The plan was not to buy three cans of the stuff, but they were on offer and it was cheaper to buy three than it was to buy one! So needless to say I ended up with three bottles. These are in the scent Head In The Clouds.
Also from Superdrug I got the Big Eyes mascara from Maybelline New York. It has two separate wands, one for your upper lashes and a smaller on for your lower lashes. They were on offer so my sister and I went halves and got on each.
And I finally gave in to temptation and bought two of Barry M’s textured glitters, in Lady and Countess.
From The Body Shop I got this Absinthe hand cream. I’ve been eyeing this for ages and finally got round to buying it. I haven’t tried it yet but I do really like the scent so I’m looking forward to using it.
Also from The Body Shop I got the Honeymania lip balm. Because I totally needed another lip balm! My lip balm collection has grown since Christmas as well but I couldn’t resist this.
From Illamasqua I got five nail varnishes, because once again, I totally need more nail varnish. I got all of these from Illamasqua’s website for £5 each in the sale (they usually retail for £14.50 each). The colours I got are Faux Pas, Harsh, Spartan, Rare and Radium.
My Bath & Body Works purchases came from eBay. Firstly I got a nourishing hand cream in the scent Warm Vanilla Sugar. It seems like everyone and their dog raves about this scent on YouTube, so I decided that I really needed to try it. And I do quite like the scent, but vanilla as a scent it not one of my favourites.
I also got one of their PocketBac anti-bacterial gels for my desk at work. I got the scent Island Nectar. This is a gorgeous scent and totally reminds me of summer and helps cheer me up when I’m at work and wishing for better weather.
And finally I got a mason jar candle in the scent Marshmallow Fireside. I’m halfway down this already. It’s a very subtle scent but the more I burn it the more I’ve come to appreciate it.
And from Primark I got two hoodies. These are really soft and they’re reasonably priced. I got one in both grey and a lovely purple colour.
