A Bit Of A Haul ♡


I feel like it's been forever since I was able to do a haul post because I haven't really been shopping, however last weekend I went up to Northern Ireland to visit my best friend and so a little damage was done. I went shopping with the intentions of buying my brothers birthday gifts and mums mothers day gifts, I managed to not finish either presents but bought myself some presents!

Before that though the first thing I bought at 9am that morning was Taylor Swift Tickets My queen is doing two dates in Dublin and I had only tickets for the first night so I knew I had to try someway to get tickets for the second date. Thankfully the arena released some production tickets (which were double the price of the original ones, but I don't mind because it's to see my fave person) and with my dad and myself trying my dad was able to grab 2 up for me so I'm now going to both dates which makes me unbelievably happy!

Colab Extreme Volume Dry Shampoo Okay so I did a review on the original lot of these which sadly I did not get along with however the good thing I did find about them was they gave some mega volume to your hair and so I wanted to try out this one to see if it would be able to give the same results. I picked it up in the original scent as it was the only one I had liked from trying the previous ones. I only picked up one bottle this time as I wasn't sure if these were going to be any different. I'm sure I'll let you know after a few uses! I got this in Superdrug for £2.99 (If you're interested, find my thoughts on the original formula here)

Collection Eyes Uncovered Palettes The first thing I went straight to in Superdrug was the Collection stand to pick up these 3 palettes. I literally just picked them up without even actually looking at the colours or swatching them, but I adore Collection shadows so I don't think I will be disappointed. However I did glance at the packaging to make sure I was getting one of each different palette which are 'Nude', 'Nude Bronze' and 'Nude Grey'. My friend actually thought I was picking up the same palette 3 times which made me have a little laugh! Superdrug had a 3 for 2 deal on these which was great. They're £3.99 each but I got all 3 for only £7.98.

MUA Palette in Heaven & Earth I got some MUA products for Christmas and I was mega impressed by them (post here) and so I went into Superdrug knowing I wanted to get some more products from them. However it was so awkward to try and get to the stand as there was people queuing right in front of it for the brow bar for the whole amount of time we were in there. I quickly grabbed this palette as I liked the neutral look to it and I am excited to use it. This was £4.00

MUA Cream Blush in Yummy Again as there was people right in front of the stand it was hard to get at but I did pick up this blush as I really liked the peachy colour and think it would be great for spring. Turns out it's actually a cream blush which I wasn't actually aware of. I have never tried a cream blush before but never the less I am excited and I am totally in love with the colour! As always MUA have such affordable prices and this was only £2.00

Maybelline Colour Tattoo in 70 Metallic Pomegranate I only have one colour tattoo which is in the colour pink gold (post here) which I absolutely adore! As I haven't been to Boots in a while and I don't plan to be anytime soon when I seen this shade I just had to pick it up because it is absolutely gorgeous. I honestly cannot wait to do a smokey eye with this! This costs £4.99 they did have a 3 for 2 offer but there wasn't anything I was crazy about or that I didn't have in Boots here.

Lush Prince Charming Shower Gel As I knew this wouldn't be in store by the time I went up North I asked my friend to purchase it for me and yes I had not smelt it. I just wanted it because hello! it's called Prince Charming could it get any cuter? The scent confuses me I love it but also not so much. I will use it, it's just not as sweet as scents I'd normally go for. This was a limited edition Valentines shower gel and was £4.95

The Body Shop Strawberry Shower Gel Staying on the shower gel subject I also picked up a travel sized one from The Body Shop. Confession, I have never tried anything from The Body Shop before I know how dreadful am I?! I picked up this one in Strawberry as my friend was after buying the body spray could have been perfume I'm not sure and the scent of it is amazing! They were doing a buy one get the other 50% off deal on their travel size shower gels, lip balms, hand sanitizers etc. I got this and the next product for just £2!

The Body Shop Lipbalm in Strawberry Oh my goodness I have always wanted one of these. I'm not sure why because I'm not really a lip balm kind of person but this smells divine and I just want to eat it . Again I got it in strawberry because I feel like you can't really go wrong with that scent. I just want to sniff it all day! I got this along with the shower gel and it only cost a total of £2!

Primark Skirt When I seen this cherry coloured skirt I picked it up straight away and to my surprise it was reduced down to £3 so I just had to pick it up! I've started buying new clothes because I currently hate my current wardrobe so I can now add this to the pile of  'For Spring/Summer' clothes!

I also had a few post packages in her house from a while back, I always joke that I use her house as a P.O Box (I don't really, it's just little things that don't deliver to Ireland).

Maybelline The Colossal Go Extreme! Volum' Express in Leather Black I actually won this from Tesco during their christmas competitions on Instagram not fully aware that they were only posting to the U.K hence why it ended up there. I have never tried this mascara before so I am super excited about it, is it just me or does everybody love new mascaras!? The brush is absolutely huge on it which makes me feel like I am going to have some serious volume!

Benefit Porefessional Sadly I have run out of my full size tube of Porefessional and am currently using my travel sized one so when I seen Benefit were giving away samples I jumped at the chance! I thought what you'd receive was the travel size one but to my surprise it was actually smaller again which gave me a right giggle. However I did get two so along with them and my travel sized one I should be okay for a little while longer. 

Cadburys Snow Bites Again another package from Christmas this time from Cadburys. On twitter they were doing a snowball fight game and if you got hit they'd send you a free bag of their snowbites, so of course myself and my friend hit each other because who doesn't love free chocolate!? However I can't eat them as I'm off all sweets for Lent so I will be eating my Christmas snow bites for Easter!

Heart Ornaments Finally I picked up these little hearts with words on them as I thought they would go really well on my dresser along with looking cute in backgrounds of photos! I got these from Harry Corry and they only cost €1.00 each!

Have you bought anything lately?

  6. What. A. Haul! I love MUA Heaven & Earth and have been really enjoying the new Collection palettes :) I prefer that version of Colab to the original as I find it more effective, however it does leave residue xx
