To Me, From Me | A Haul

Sometimes a girl's gotta treat herself yes? Well to be fair I had a decent amount of Boots points so this haul was pretty pain free on the owld purse strings! I've been saving my Boots points for a while now as I've been planning on treating myself to a high end foundation. 

After much deliberating, I decided to go for the YSL Le Teint Touché Eclat Foundation as I'd tried a sample in the past and loved it. I did this order online as my local Boots doesn't stock YSL, so whilst I was on I decided to treat myself to the NYX Contour Kit on a whim. I don't know why, but I had it in my head it was a cream contour kit, and it's not, it's powder. Big lols. Not a massive deal as powder is fine, but it'll teach me to actually read about a product properly before adding it to my basket! When I was collecting my order the next day, I was distracted by the new Rimmel Super Gel Nail Polishes. I've seen the likes of Barry M do a daylight curing gel range, but I'd never tried them. I love Rimmel's nail polishes and as they were on two for £10 I thought I'd try the shade Bare Yourself and the special top coat to try out. I haven't had a go with these yet but I'm sure I'll do a little review when I do. Now onto the only products I didn't spend my Boots points on. I've been using the Primark Makeup Sponges for a while and I'd been meaning to try the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge as I've heard they're really good. When I spotted the double pack in TJ Hughes for £7.64, I grabbed them!

I also treated myself to a new curling wand. I have a couple of curling tools, but since having my hair shorter, I needed a thinner, conical type of wand. I researched a little bit first, and was torn between the Remington Silk Curling Wand and the Babyliss Pro Curling Wand. I decided on the Babyliss in the end, purely because it had more reviews (5stars on most webites). I absolutely love it already. It's made such a difference in getting that beachy wave look that I love in my bob and they stay in the next day, which is something that rarely happens with my hair.

What have you treated yourself to lately?

  1. I've only used the Babyliss wand a few times but it definitely gives perfect beachy waves. I just need to get used to not having a clamp - thank god for the included glove otherwise my fingers would have been frazzled!! Lol xx
