So I’m back with a MASSSIIIVVVEEE shopping haul, yes I may have spent a little too much yesterday, but I am very happy with all my purchases.
There’s quite a mix in there, I went a bit crazy in Primark’s beauty section, and clothes to be fair, but there’s also makeup from Benefit and some other bits and bobs, so enjoy!
I mainly went into town to buy myself some new high waisted shorts, I only have one pair at the moment and I wear them constantly with leggings or tights in the winter and nothing in the summer. They were from Primark originally so that’s why I decided to go there to get some new ones. I really like high waisted shorts as I find they are not too short around the bum area and I like tucking T-shirts into them to achieve a cute, poppy look.
These were the first pair I spied, I liked the little belt round the top with stars punched through it and I also liked the darker denim with lighter patches on the thigh. These were a bargain in the sale at a fiver!
These were the second pair I picked up, (sorry for the line on the photo, silly WordPress!) These are a lighter coloured denim and I thought for £15 for two pairs of shorts I’d just buy both. I like these ones because they just seem a little more summery to me.
Still in the clothes section of Primark, I then found a beautiful top that I decided I just had to have!
I really like this top, it comes down just to your hips and with a high neck means you can get away with not wearing anything underneath, or just a little crop top maybe, which is good because the back is then a scoop fastened with a small silver button at the top. I thought this would be perfect for summer, with jeans or even my new shorts, why not bring back the double denim!
I also think it would be easy to layer for those cooler evenings and the winter months, just throw on a cute, over sized cardigan and go!
I then just grabbed some more little camisoles to put under things, I love these for layering, or just on there own in summer, but mostly I wear these under things and layer them up. Again for £2 these are brilliant!
My next item I picked up in Primark was a beautiful bag. I’d been in a very expensive shop with my mum the other day and seen a gorgeous pastel pink handbag and kind of fell in love with it, however as it was still stupidly expensive even in the sale I left it. Then on going into Primark, I saw this lovely bag that looks a lot like it and for £9 I grabbed it!
I really like this handbag, I wanted one with shorter straps and I found it, but it also comes with a longer strap that just clips onto the sides which I thought was good too. I feels pretty sturdy and is a good size and shape for all your handbag bits and pieces! Will certainly be using this in the near future!
Next in Primark I stumbled into there beauty range. Now I never though Primark would be that good at beauty but at the moment I am thoroughly impressed! First up….
Now, it’s out the packaging because I have already used this, and am loving it! It’s annoying that they don’t have colours on them, but this one is like a pale pink nude and it looks lovely! Really like it, and for £1.50, bargain is an understatement!
There’s only one in the packet, by the way, because I gave one to my mum! These I haven’t properly tried yet, but they’ve been recommended to me, so I’ll give them a go, again for £1 for two eye liners, you can’t go far wrong!
So I went a little crazy with the next item, but I do really love doing my nails and I saw a girl in my class wearing some of these and they looked really good, and really natural and she said they stayed on a long time and highly recommended them so, yeah! I got some just glossy pale bluey/green ones, some blue flowery ones, some red pop art ones and some kitty cat ones! £1 each!
Then I just got some more of the ever disappearing hair bands, including some no snag elastics which I think are really good for doing little braids, or anything where you just need a smaller hair band, so I got three different packs!
I can not recommend this stuff highly enough, I don’t know why it isn’t more popular and when I saw they had it in Primark I literally squealed with excitement! Carmex, if you can’t already tell is a lip balm, and it’s amazing! It soothes, moisturises and it’s simply lovely. I have one by my bed permanently but it’s running low so I grabbed another. They also had strawberry and mint flavour but I decided to stick to the classic one, just because I don’t always like a strong flavour lip balm.
And that’s it for Primark! Woo! Finally, I hear you cry! Next I went to Benefit, to pick up some concealers. I’ve tried so many different concealers to hide my horrible dark patches under my eyes, but I do think Benefit have it down. The first one I bought was one I’ve had before and loved, but couldn’t buy it again until because I simply couldn’t afford it.
Now it may look small, but trust me you do NOT need a lot and this means it last forever! It’s perfect for under your eyes and the odd blemish or two! It comes with a handy little spatula for getting it out the pot and if you’ve got a bit more cash to spare I would highly recommend this product.
Next this is Boi-ing and after borrowing my mum’s for the past week I decided to buy one myself finally! This claims to be more of an ‘industrial strength concealer’ for hiding circles, discoloration and shadows. Again this lasts a long time and to apply, simply pat it on the areas to conceal and pat to blend, likewise with Erase Paste.
And that’s it! Finished! That was my shopping haul! I hope you’ve enjoyed this post, it’s taken me a while, but I knew you deserved a longer blog post as I’ve been somewhat AWOL for a while!
