Who doesn’t love a bit of a haul? I was going to do a collective September Haul but with only a smallish feel unique haul which didn’t seem work it I thought it would be worth combining September and Octobers hauls together as I really haven’t been buying too much. I also apologise if you have seen some of these items in posts already, as I have used some of them as I brought them for particular reasons over September and October.
I think I actually ordered this at the end of August from Feel Unique but it didn’t arrive until the start of September and I missed the chance to put them in the collective August haul. I did pretty damn good though getting everything on sale plus an additional 10% off, I resisted going made and I only brought the things I actually need, as if I needed more makeup.
With Tanya Burrs new makeup or repackaged makeup being launched in August a lot of the older items were on sale, unfortunately the lashes I wanted had sold out. Probably because the packages are all being repackaged so £2.80 for Tanya Burr Lashes is a bloody steal, I also missed out of the lip glosses as the ones I wanted had gone but I picked up two nail polishes which I have been eyeing up for months, I owned two already and they are really great nail polishes. So I picked up the totally out of season but so pretty I’ll wear in anyway Tanya Burr Polish in Little Duck which actually went beautifully with my graduation outfit although in the end I went for flower detailed nails. The other nail polish I picked up was the Tanya Burr Nail Polish in Peaches & Cream, a lovely pinky nude some will consider it more summery but for me it’s a great all round nail polish. Both nail polishes were a bargain at £2.16 each.
I’ve been curious to pick up the Maybelline Colour Tattoo eyeshadows for ages but the highly popular bronze shade, doesn’t fit in with what I tend to wear. However I felt the Maybelline New York Colour Tattoo 24hr Gel-Cream Eyeshadow in 65 Pink Gold (£3.81), would slip perfectly into my makeup collection and will work with everything in my collection either as a strong base or as part of an eye look. Now back to the world of Rimmel, who I seem to own a lot of makeup by concerning lips and face. I think it’s just because they just make such good product, does anyone else absolutely love Rimmel London or is it just me? I love my Rimmel East End Snob Lipliner for being long lasting and thought a second lip liner wouldn’t go a miss so I picked up the Rimmel Lasting Finish 1000 Kisses Lipliner Pencil in Tiramisu (£2.01). I’ve tried some cheap, like proper cheap white and nude eyeliners but have found them to be a bit pants but with tired eyes from work I thought I’d try the Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Khol Kajal Line in Nude (£2.69) which has been recommended to me by quite a few people.
These are the only other two things I brought in September as I wanted to get more organised, and I prefer smaller diaries opposed to the cheap A4 counterpart I’ve barely used in months. I work close to an Asda and because they had their back to school range still in at the time it made sense to pop in on a lunch time. The Patterned Diary (£3.00) is one in which you write your own dates, although I have written it out until the end of the diary and its an 18month diary which I tend to prefer as I like the thickness (sounds odd I know). Then on the organised line I brought some asda own brand Coloured Fineliners (£1.00) so that I can colour code my events, things to do, blog things etc. and it really breaks up the pages.
So I wanted a little something to update my wardrobe for this Autumn/Winter without costing a fortune, so Primark was my first stop, as I have a lot of good winter basics and I love layering so I don’t need a huge amount of new clothes. I’ve kept thinking about getting a huge warm scarfs as you can use it as a blanket or it can keep you warm, especially on the commute as I drive to work and this time of year I don’t need a coat but you want something to keep you warm. So I picked up this super soft and big Tartan Scarf which only cost £5.00 I’m obsessed with it.
I’ve talked about foot packs before as they are one of the simplest, and least messy way to moisturises and treat your feet. I’m not loyal to any particular brand or one as I just pick up what’s there, this time I picked up two Macadamia Oil Extract Foot Pack (£0.99), which I’ve used before and I really love. Well worth trying out.
So that’s what I picked up over September/ October have you guys picked up anything good recently?
