Pay Day Spending

So after a couple of months of being completely broke and not being able to treat myself to anything nice, payday finally arrived. And truth be told I was already spending that money and I hadn't even been paid 5 hours! Yes it was an exciting time,  even more exciting when you work 10 footsteps away from Mac! Lets get into everything I bought though, shall we!?

So as you may have heard from the many emails or the vouchers you've been handed No7 have launched a new face serum. I decided to buy one for my Mum as part of a late birthday gift as I have seen results from people using it and it's quite good I may add. So I picked up the No7 Lift and Luminate Triple Action Face Serum from Boots. If you are 40+ this is ideal if any fine lines or wrinkles bother you as this helps plump your skin and make them invisible. Boots are giving out €6.50 off vouchers so it works out cheaper and its part of 3 for 2!
Something I have been wanting to try and decided to finally pick it up, the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser Starter Kit. I've been using it since I bought it and I will say so far I do like it. This cost €20.50 which I was quite impressed by as I thought it was going to be much more expensive. You get your 100ml bottle and 2 muslin cloths in this little set along with a little bag to hold everything together if you're travelling! 

An old classic but something you can't go wrong with, I also popped the Palmers Cocoa Butter Body Lotion into my basket as it was on special for just €5.33 at the time which is such a bargain. I love that the bigger bottle has a pump as I find it so much easier to use and theres no mess to it. This smells of chocolate so if you're a chocoholic definitely give this a sniff!

Something I technically didn't need as I don't tend to use them was the Garnier Skin-Active Oil Infused Micellar Cleansing Wipes.  The only reason I picked these up was because they were on offer for €2.99. I love the Garnier original micellar water and so when I seen they brought out one infused with oil I didn't bother picking it up as I hate oily things near my eyes, it just makes me panic. However I thought the wipes wouldn't feel as oily so I'd give them a go on my eyes and to just help take the bulk of my makeup off before my proper skin routine. 

Something I really needed Real Techniques Miracle Complextion Sponges. I got this double pack on offer for just €10.50 which is such a bargain I thought and now I can finally throw away my old two as they are just disgusting. Since these have launched I've honestly not used a brush to apply my foundation, I just adore the finish it gives your foundation!

I also went to the cinema to see Zootropolis as I've been wanting to see it since it was released but never had the free time to do so. Honestly I think I hyped myself up about it so much that I was kinda like eh when it was over. It was good but I didn't love it as much as I thought I was going too.
Something I bought that I'm so excited for, I'm going to the Selena Gomez Revival Tour and I legit cannot contain my excitement. I absolutely adore Selena and she has been one of the artists I've been wanting to see for years and now I finally will in November.

Back to things I can physically show you!
The NYX stand in Shaws had 20% off and although I think people had raided it before me I managed to pick ups 2 of the NYX HD 01 Porcelain Concealer. I haven't had this in ages and I thought it was about time I treated myself again. I use this to highlight and I just adore it. The concealer itself is also really high coverage and just makes your skin look flawless. I love it! I also finally got to pick up the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade Copenhagen. I've had a picture of this saved onto my phone since last year and can now finally delete it!

Like I said I work in the airport and Mac is just 10 foot steps away from me so of course I was in there at 4:50am on payday before starting work spending! Now I was very good and only allowed myself to get the 2 products I had been dying to get! Although I could have bought everything I saw but I kept my cool. The two products I picked up was the Ariana Grande Viva Glam Lipstick & Lipglass. As it's the airport I got them a little cheaper thanks to duty free than if I had to of bought them from Brown Thomas which was great! The colours of both these products just has me constantly heart eyeing because they are just so gorgeous.

I also finally picked up a Sleek Matte Me Lipcream just to see what all the hype was about. I've been lacking in a good nude lip colour in my collection lately so I picked up the shade Birthday Suit and lets just say I get it now. The formula, the colour, just everything about it, just yes! I'm going to stock up on these sooner than you think because I think I've fallen in love.

I then decided to pick up 2 Barry M Nail Polishes as they were buy 1 get 2nd half price. From their new Coconut Infusion range I picked up the shade Laguna which is such a gorgeous pastel blue colour. I also picked up a Hi Shine Gel Effect in Blueberry which is just a slightly darker blue shade but still just as pretty!

Finally I picked up the 100ml bottle of Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift. This is my all time favourite perfume and I've ran out of it probably well over a year ago now and decided it was finally time to bring it back into my collection! Plus it was on offer that was way too good to pass up on.

And thats everything I bought this time round, I say this time round because I'm still planning on ticking somethings off my to buy list again soon!

What did you treat yourself to on payday?

  1. The NYX Concealer is amazing isn't it! I love it under my eyes paired with the NYX Banana Powder, works wonders! I still need to pick up one of the Sleek Liquid Lipsticks as everyone seems to love them! The shade you picked up looks like my kind of shade.

    1. Aren't they so good! I honestly don't remember the last time I used a brush to apply my foundation and concealer, I just love the finish it gives. Definitely look out for some they are such a great lip product, and they don't feel drying at all x
