Summer Time Beauty Haul

Hi Everyone!

How are you all? It’s been a good while since I’ve blogged but it feels so refreshing to be back with a new post! Although I’ve been blogging on and off for about a year and a half I’ve never actually done a ‘haul post’, despite venturing out on many shopping sprees. So here’s a little look at which beauty products I’ve purchased lately…

mini haul

L’Oreal Infallible Fixing Mist £7.99

Now I can’t be the only girl who sprays her face with hair spray in a feeble attempt to ensure that her makeup lasts all evening. But I thought it was about time I started improving my skin care, by not clogging my pores and stinging my eyes, and instead paying more attention to using products for what they’re actually intended for. This wasn’t too pricey and smells absolutely divine and I am really looking forward to using it. I’m going out on a bike ride today, so will be able to sample it’s sweatability factor (it’s totally okay to invent words right?!) and I just need another excuse to hit the dance floor to test out its durability!

Barry M Quick Dry in the Shade ‘Freestyle’ £3.99

You know the story, if you’re right handed, you are some sort of nail varnish queen when it comes to painting your left hand. However the right is a whole different story in a whole different library. A silly wobbly mistake on one nail can quickly end in a handful of smudges, chips and disrepair. So thank the lord Barry M decided to invent a fabulous Quick Dry range. I picked up a nude colour in the shade ‘Freestyle’ to add to my growing collection. I already know this is going to be one of my go-to bottles when I want to freshen up my nails in under two minutes flat. If you’ve not tried this range yet, I highly recommend it (I’ve got my mum hooked too), the polishes are extremely affordable and there’s always an offer on in Boots and Superdrug too!

Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream in Petal £4.99

You might have spotted a natural theme throughout this mini haul and this lip product joins the club. I’ve heard rave reviews about the Sleek collection and I’m so, SO excited to see how well this lasts on my lips! FullSizeRender

The Body Shop Honey Bronze Highlighting Dome £8

I’ve loved The Body Shop skin care products since before I can remember, however I’ve never really thought too much about their makeup range until the last year or so and I am now a HUGE fan! Being a newbie to the world of highlighter (I know where have I been?) I put my desires to the good people of Twitter and was recommended either Sleek or The Body Shop highlighters (I asked for bank account friendly suggestions). There are three shades to choose from, a dark tone, pink blush and I bought the golden shimmery colour. It’s really subtle which I like, and I’m enjoying how well it blends with my blusher and how light it feels on my skin.

The Body Shop Face Base (All-in-One Foundation and Powder) £14

I’ve not used a powder in years (used to be a massive fan of Max Factor’s), so this purchase was a long time coming! I’ve only used this once, but I love how light and velvety it feels on my skin. Also, from one beauty lover to another, ALWAYS remember to check VoucherCodes or Voucher Cloud before heading to the till because you can ALWAYS find a voucher and you can quite often use them in conjunction with the sale in store too!


The Body Shop Lipscuff £8

I struggle with dry lips so much, despite owning about five thousand lip balms. I think it’s the weather and the constant need to drink more water. However after just one use, I am seriously impressed! My lips, especially my bottom one, are SO smooth. Although I am not a fan of mint, this lip product in particular is not overwhelming and leaves my lips feeling fresh and flake free. While it’s quite pricey, it will be interesting to see how long the Lipscuff lasts, although you can’t really put a price on silky smooth skin!

Thanks so much for reading my first post in a good while! I really appreciate every single one of you who takes the time out of your busy day to see what I’ve been up to!

  1. I love those Barry M quick dry nail polishes – I’m too impatient for anything else! Very interested in the fixing mist, have never been able to make my makeup last more than a couple of hours!

    1. Me too! They’re a gift from above! The face mist actually really, truly works. My make-up lasted all day down the beach and when I went out on a bike ride! 😉 x

  2. I was going to pick up the Maybelline fixing spray and I’ve heard it’s the exact same as the L’Oreal one! I’ve heard lots of good things about both and I’m really excited about that. I only currently have the NYX Matte setting spray but I’m not that bowled over by it so I’d like to try some different ones. I’m a huge fan of Sleek’s Matte Me, they’re so comfortable and beautiful for a drugstore liquid to matte lipstick! Oh, and the Barry M Speedy Quick Dry polishes have changed my life – it’s rare that I wear anything else these days!
