So it was payday not so long ago and I hit the shops hard! So hard in fact I have two primark hauls and a tiger haul coming your way, what can I say oops! I tend to have one massive blow out the weekend after payday instead of getting bits here and there, who doesn't love coming home with a ton of shopping bags!
I was running out of my Colab dry shampoo, I've gone through two of the big ones already and whilst picking up another I saw the extreme volume version so thought I would give that a go. My day 2/day three hair can go really flat so I thought it would work well for this as I've heard some good reviews. They have a 1/3 off in superdrug at the moment. Out of every dry shampoo I've tried, and that is a lot, this is hands down the absolutely best in terms of formula, effectiveness and cost.
Asda had some pretty sweet deals on Maybelline makeup. As I love the Maybelline flawless nude foundation so much I thought I'd try the dream satin liquid foundation which has been around for an age and I keep looking at it thinking I want to try it and as it was only £5 I brought it! I also picked up the baby skin instant fatigue blur in warm apricot for £5. I feel like I have been waiting for ages for this to be readily available, the rose variety has been out for ages and I would of thought this one would of been out at the same time but nope. I really didn't want to get rose as I didn't want to add pink to an already red hued face! Finally the 'drugstore' mascara everyone seems to be talking about and as it was on offer for £6 I had to get it. This is of course the lash sensational mascara. It is quite a different styled brush for maybelline and reminds me of a thicker version of benefits roller lash so we shall see.
Good things argan oil perfecting facial oil or the Botanics facial oil but as I saw this one in tkmaxx and it was only £3.99 it won hands down haha as it is usually £6.99. On further inspection the good things oil has more good things in and I especially like that it has vitamin e oil in which is rich in anti-oxidants to protect my skin as well as the oil giving me a good boost in moisture.
The boots on the left were only £23, they were originally £39.99 and are real leather. I love the smell of leather, anyone else? The heel size is perfect as they are comfy enough to do day to day activities but they also give me some much needed height as I'm only 5ft2. I have been umming and ahhing about the shoes on the left for about 2 months. I saw them online and really liked them, then saw them in store but there was only one pair and someone was already trying them on, then I saw them in store in the sale but I needed a size down and then FINALLY I found a pair when I wasn't even looking in my size so by the end of all that I was bloody buying them! The look pretty high and because I have flat feet and wonky ankles me and heels don't mix but these are perfect. They are SO comfy because the platform is thick and the sole is rubber making the impact between foot, shoe and floor a lot softer because of the padding I guess and rubber has some bounce. I can't wait to have an excuse to wear these!!
