AMAZING HAUL! | Liberty Gift With Purchase!

Posted on September 21, 2014

liberty-gift-with-purchase

Hi Guys!

If you’re a fan of Liberty you may have heard they had a fantastic gift with purchase (GWP) offer that started last week. With a beauty purchase of £150 or more they were offering £300 of beauty goodies for free! Well the thought of all those brand new products to try was just too much for me, so I had to take up the offer! And yes, all these amazing skincare products above were completely FREE! Space NK had a very similar offer shortly after, which I was very tempted to go for but I couldn’t really justify the purchases after spending so much at Liberty!

I know I know, yes, I had to spend £150 to get the goodies in the first place, but hear me out! My original plan was to take this as an opportunity to stock up on essentials… but actually instead I decided to try out some products I’ve been lusting after for a while, so this is how I’ve justified it to myself… 🙂

Firstly though, here’s a wee list of all the freebs…

  • Diptyque Candle in Roses, mini size 70g
  • Hourglass Femme Rouge Lipstick
  • Liberty Rose & Lemon Rind Body Wash 400ml
  • Chantacaille Faux Cils Black Mascara 4g
  • Trish McEvoy Instant Eye Lift 71g
  • Eve Lom Cleanser 30ml
  • !QMS Medicosmetics Hydro Foam Mask 75ml
  • NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien 1.7g
  • AESOP Coriander Seed Body Cleanser 50ml
  • Laura Mercier Hydrating Foundation Primer 30ml
  • Omorovicza Cleansing Foam 30ml
  • Sisley Gentle Makeup Remover 30ml
  • Anne Semonin Botanical Milk Cleanser 40ml
  • OPI Nail Polish in My Dogsled is a Hybrid 15ml
  • ESPA Love Your Lips Mandarin Lip Balm 10g
  • Aromatherapy Associates Hydrating Rose Skin Tonic 30ml
  • Decleor Aroma Solutions Energising Gel 50ml
  • Khiels Ultra Facial Moisturiser 30ml
  • Malin & Goetz Rum Body Wash 40m
  • Liberty Rose & Lemon Rind Soap 200g
  • Shu Uemura Skin Purifier 50ml
  • REN Micro Polish Cleanser 30ml
  • Margaret Dabbs Nail File
  • Vouchers for hair treatments in store (not shown)

There’s some pretty awesome products in there so I’m a happy bunny! This little lot oughta keep me busy for a while!

And here are my actual purchases!

I went for the AESOP Alacrity Set, which includes –

  • Fabulous Face Cleanser
  • B & Tea Balancing Toner
  • Mandarin Facial Hydrating Cream
  • Purifying Facial Exfoliant Paste

A 30ml bottle of Molecule 01 and an ESPA Mandarin Lip balm – which without me realising was already in the GWP set, DOH! Never mind, a girl can never have enough lip balms hey!

I won’t go into too much detail about the products as I want to have a chane to try them out properly first, then I’l probably write up some individual reviews for you. 🙂

So what do you think? Do you think this is a good deal? And did you go for it yourself? Let me know! xxx

Some Necessities From Boots… | Ok it’s a Haul!

Posted on June 29, 2014

boots-haul

Ok so I may have made a Boots order, – it’s for necessities!! And I did get loads of freebies and offers too… so it actually turned out to be pretty cheap… Here are the goods!

  • SEVENTEEN Phwoarr Paint in Medium
  • SEVENTEEN Phwoarr Paint in Fair
  • SEVENTEEN Lip Crayon (freebie)
  • Soap & Glory Trick and Treatment
  • Soap & Glory Exfoliating Glove
  • Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer Three – Piece Camouflage in Light
  • Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot
  • Soap & Glory Puffy Eye Attack (buy two get a third free on S&G)
  • Garnier Perfect Blur Skin Perfcting Primer
  • Models Own Eyelash Curler
  • Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick Electric Orange
  • Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick Shocking Coral (buy one get one half price deal)
  • Yes to Cucumber Soothing Eye Gel

Ok so here’s a quick rundown of my purchases and reasoning behind them.

My go-to concealer has almost ran out, it’s Benefit Boi-ing in 02. It’s not a cheap purchase at £17.50 a pop so I went on the hunt for a similar product that’s either just a bit cheaper, or a budget buy would be perfect. I was recommended the Seventeen Phwooar Paint as it’s apparently fab dupe for Benefit’s Boiing, so I bought the Light and Medium shades so I can give them a go. I’ll have a comparison and review post up soon, watch this space! And as a nice little bonus I got a Seventeen Lip Pencil for free, result!

Next on to all the Soap and Glory bits. Now I’m going to be honest, I’ve never gotten into the S&G hype, I’ve heard good things about their products but never really had a need to buy any of them. When I was asking around for concealer recommendations, a few people also said the S&G Kick Ass concealer was great, so I thought while I was placing my order I’d add that in the mix to compare with the others. I noticed they also do a specific dark circle concealer called Trick and Treatment which sounded right up my street!

This reminded me that I had also been advised to try S&G Puffy Eye Attack – I’m having real issues with under eye bags at the moment (must be my age) so I added this to my bag too. When I was looking around the Soap and Glory section on the boots site, I came to realise they do a lot more products that I originally thought. So as they were on a buy two get a third free offer I picked up a couple of other bits including the One Hell of a Blot, shine controlling face powder and their Exfoliating Glove.

I also don’t own an eyelash curler. I know, it’s a crime right? So I went for the very reasonably priced Models Own curler at only £6.00. This was a bit of a ‘blind’ purchase, blind in the sense that I hadn’t checked out any reviews prior to purchasing so I have no idea what to expect with this one!

I’ve also had my eyes on the Maybelline colour Sensational Vivids Lipsticks ever since I bought the Neon Red one which I love! These are my second favourite lipsticks to MAC, and are really reasonably priced at £7.19 each. Boots had an offer on for buy one get one half price so how could I possibly resist!? I went for Electric Orange and Shocking Coral.

And finally onto the skincare bits. The Yes To Cucumber Soothing Eye Gel jumped out at me as it had 90 customer reviews on the Boots site with over 4 out of 5 stars as an average rating. It was a reasonable £11.99 so definitely worth a shot I think! And lastly the Garnier 5 Second Perfect Blur Skin Primer. This again appealed to me due to the 113 very positive customer reviews. I have a real issue with visible pores so anything that could possibly reduce the appearance of my less than perfect skin is worth a try!

So I think that’s about it! All will be tried and reviewed in the coming weeks!

Have you tried any of these products? I’d love to hear if you have and what you think of them? xxx

Boots & Space NK Beauty Hauls!!

Posted on January 20, 2014

Hi Guys!

Last week I may have been tempted by some new Smashbox products at Boots, and a big sale at Space NK…

I ordered the new Smashbox Full Exposure Palette and Try It kit – I’ve never tried Samshbox products before but I’ve heard so many good things about them I’m really excited to get stuck in with these! While I was on the Boots site I also ordered the Models Own Aqua Splash Nail Polish which I’ve had my eye on for a while, and a couple of Bourjois Clubbing Eyeliners. I have the Bleu Neon Clubbing Eyeliner which I love, so I thought I’d try the black and green versions.

Then, I kind of accidentally fell onto the Space NK site, they had an up to 75% off sale on so, it would have been rude not to surely? (I think the sale is still on… not that I’m encouraging you…)

I’ve decided I want to try out some candles, I’ve never been a candle person but I saw the Beautannia Candle Set which I thought looked lovely, and the Life NK Drift Away Collection so I thought I’d give them a go as they were such good bargains. I also spotted a nice little Kevyn Aucoin Palette in the sale, and thought I’d get an Hourlass Femme Nude Lip Stylo while I was on the site as I’d wanted to try one for a while.

So now I have lots of goodies to play with and review! I’ll be posting reviews of everything in the next couple of weeks.

I’d love to hear if you’ve tried any of these products? xxx
