A Collective Haul!

Retail Therapy. I love it, my bank hates it.
But over the past week or so, I have treated myself to some bits, and I thought I would include them all in a collective haul post for you lovely lot!

I picked up this geometric rose gold candle holder from Primark for £3.50.
It's so cute, and I love that you can replace the candle, I may even try and see if i can get a cute little plant to fit in there!

I also picked up this geometric light also in rose gold. This was £5, again from Primark. 
This actually has a little handle on the bottom, so it can either be hung up or sat on a desk like the image above. Multiple choice, I love it.

The Body Shop have quite a big sale on at the moment, and of course I couldn't resist it. I have been looking at their 'Vineyard Peach' collection for a while, so clearly it was meant to be that I bought this.
I believe both of these items were reduced to £7.50 each, one is the body butter and the other is a body scrub, and they both smell delicious.

I also picked up the shower gel, body mist, and body lotion in the same scent! 
I believe all of these were £4 each, which in my opinion is an absolute steal. So the whole collection only cost me £27!

I also did a little makeup haul a couple of weeks back, and these two products are probably my favourite!
The Barry M Flawless Colour Correcting Primer was recommended to me by Melissa, and it does a fab job at correcting the redness I get near my nose and on my cheeks!
I also picked up the Collection 'Primed & Ready' which claims to be a 'mattifying pore minimising primer'.
I think ladies and gentlemen, I may have found a very close dupe for Benefit's Porefessional. This stuff is amazing. The only issue is, I can't use it with the green primer from Barry M, as for some reason it just doesn't do as good as a job at hiding my humongous pores.
But when I use it on it's own, I love it! It smooths my skin, hides my pores, and makes my makeup last considerably longer!

I also picked up three different foundations, as I'm currently on the hunt for my holy grail drugstore foundation, which I will be doing a whole post on, so I won't go too much into these three now.
But I can say my favourite out of the three is the Max Factor 'Lasting Performance' as it's the best pale shade I've ever used, and my god the stuff lasts, but my favourite part is that is feels so lightweight!
The other two I picked up were the Max Factor 'Skin Luminzer Miracle' foundation and Revlon's 'Colour Stay'. Have any of you tried either of these? I'd love to hear your opinions in the comments!

My hair is in dire need of some TLC, and these shampoos are currently in the 3 for 2 section at Asda, and as they are a little more pricey that what I'd usually spend on shampoo (£7 each) I thought I'd pick the collection up while they were on offer.
I've only used them once, but they smell incredible, and I've already been complimented on how healthy and soft my hair looks! 

I love cute medium/small sized bags, and I was in need of a new one, so I picked this pink and grey one up from Primark, and it was only £9!
It has both the small and extendable strap, and it is quite spacious so it's perfect for me to take to work or to go shopping with.

My shoes literally just consist of black booties, but as it's getting so hot, I finally decided to buy some that were a little more weather appropriate.
These cute little suede dolly shoes were only £4 each from Primark! They're super comfy and they have soooo many different colours!

Lastly, and my favourite purchase, is this cute little shirt from New Look. It was in the sale for £10! It's a little oversized and flowy, and I LOVE it. It looks so cute with a pair of jeans and boots, or tucked into a skirt! 
Definitely my favourite purchase of the lot!

Do you see anything on here you like the look of? Let me know in the comments!

  10. I'm loving your haul Hun! That light is just stunning and the shirt is gorgeous! You've picked up some great things, I love organix shampoo & conditioner, it's the only stuff I'll use now because of how much I love it! I wouldn't recommend the keratin ones as they are great for giving your hair life or the biotin and collagen ones, swear by them.
