So I planned on going into Boots just to stock up on the essentials.
Did I stick to my plan? Did I heck.
I then continued on into Bodycare and Superdrug to buy a couple more not-so-essentials.
As is life, eh?
Not the most exciting of hauls, but I'm a student, what can I say.
First up, the goodies from Boots and Superdrug:
I'm a bit confused seeing as when I bought these they were both discounted (can't remember how much I paid exactly) rather than on 3 for 2 offer as listed on the website?
Anyway, these have worked absolute wonders on my skin since I started using them so these are my back ups - I don't want another mascara incident!
Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid foundation in Nude, £7.99, Dream Smooth primer, £8.99 and Dream Touch Lumi concealer,
I actually only needed the foundation, but seeing as they were on 3 for 2 I thought I'd also give the primer and concealer a go. I must say, so far I'm impressed!
Neither of these were necessary. But I am a bit of a lipstick phobic and can never figure out which colours and shades would suit my skin tone, and which would look ridiculous. The price tag of these lippys means I can have a play around with different colours for next to nothing!
And with not being able to justify the price tag of the beautiful Urban Decay Naked pallette, it is kind of necessary that I own MUA undressed instead.
My teeny tiny Bodycare haul:
Facial wipes, £1 per packet, Osiris exfoliating facial scrub, £1, and Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation in soft beige, £5.99
Pretty boring stuff, but I have been after adding a facial scrub to my weekly routine to see if it makes much difference to my skin, so I thought I'd try this one out for starters and see how it goes.
After seeing the Wake Me Up hype sweep across the blogosphere, I literally could not resist picking it up at such a bargain price.
Am I converted?
I have used it twice and I can already safely say that my brand spanking new bottle of Dream Satin Liquid is going straight down the drain. Well, straight on eBay.
I love this stuff!
So there we have it. I've got to say, writing this post up has made me feel a lot less guilty about my unnecessary little haul. It doesn't look as much on paper. Phew!
