Recent Haul - Primark & Superdrug

Along with my recent MAC Lipstick Haul, I also picked up a few other bits from Primark & Superdrug that I thought I'd pop into a post. Last week I went to the Primark in Newcastle which is sooo much bigger than my local Middlesbrough store. Saying that, I think I did quite well as I only picked up a few bits. The first thing I picked up was this gorgeous Monochrome Gingham Scarf (£5). I know it's only August and I felt strange buying a scarf in the Summer but I couldn't resist and to be fair I've probably needed it a few days already! Bloody British Summer!! I grabbed these Hogwarts Knee High Socks just because I love anything Harry Potter related and I do love a good pair of knee highs to chill out in at night. I also picked up some hair clips as now I have a bob I can no longer put my hair up into a messy bun so I need some smaller clips to pin it back out of my face when I'm in one of those moods.  I love the little floral designs on these and for the price I don't care if they break within a week. I was looking all over for the Primark Beauty Blender Sponge but I couldn't see any, but I did find this Foundation Blending Sponge which is a smaller version with a brush handle so I thought I'd give it a go as it looks a good size for concealer. For £1.50 its certainly worth a dabble.

Onto Superdrug, I was just having a little browse as you do, and I noticed their Vitamin E Skincare range was on buy one get one half price. I needed a new exfoliator anyway, so I thought I'd give the Gentle Oatmeal Exfoliator a try, along with the Facial Oil, as I do love a good oil on the owld mush! I then popped over to Barry M as I'd been wanting to try their new Speedy Quick Dry Nail Polishes. They were on 2 for £7 so as it would have been rude to only choose one, I went for the shades Get Set Go - a vibrant, deep pink and Pit Stop - a pastel lilac/grey . Looking forward to giving them a go.

What have you picked up recently?

  1. I've been looking for the Primark beauty blender too! :/ I can't find it either which is so frustrating. I love the little floral clips you picked up and the Barry M shades are so pretty :)
