Collective Haul- Part 1

Evening guys,

So apologies for posting this haul so late. I've been super busy the last few days. Also has you may see with the title of this blog, I will be splitting it up into three separate posts, as I have a little more than I thought I had *slaps wrist*. So I thought it would be just easier to split up my haul. Also a lot of this stuff I have bought over the last two months so don't be too shocked. I will be definitely be putting myself on a spending ban for the next few weeks.

Anyway on with the haul!

So I will start of with the following items I bought in Boots.

So firstly I picked up an Essie nail polish in the shade Tart Deco, which I featured in my last NOTD post. It is a gorgeous bright pastel orange/ corally colour. I was happy to find Boots in Dublin was finally selling Essie polishes as they can be tricky to find! The brushes have also been re-designed with a more 'fan' shaped head for better coverage when applying the polish. This polish was €12.99.

The next item I picked up in Boots was a Revlon nail polish in the shade 'Radiant', it's a fabulous turquoise with turquoise and silver hexagonal glitter. This was €9.15.
Next I picked up a Carmex lip balm, I picked the original one. I'm always on the lookout for lip balms to try out and I'm liking this one so far. It's nice and compact as well. This was €3.39.
I also picked up a Sally Hansen nail polish remover, I got the one for soft and thin nails. This is my favourite nail polish removers. This was €3.04.
I then picked up a La Roche-Posay Thermal Water spray. I love this for refreshing my face throughout the day, it also keeps my makeup intact. This is reasonably priced at €9.65.
The next item I picked up was a Carex hand sanitizer. I picked up two. I find them handy when I am out and about and for when I'm doing my makeup. I picked it up in a lovely lavender and rosewood scent, which is nicer than your usual alcohol smelling ones. These were both €1.50.
I also picked up a new Batiste dry shampoo in a new cherry scent, which is absolutely divine! I needed to replace the awful glittery one I bought on my last trip to Belfast. This was €4.06.
I then picked up three Barry M Nail Paints as they were on offer. I picked up the shades 'Mint Green' which is a gorgeous pastel mint coloured green as the name suggests, the other was a Limited Edition one to Boots. It is a lovely berry purple shade. I also picked up the shade 'Blue Moon', which is a gorgeous baby pastel blue, definitely my favourite out of the three. These were all €4.57.

I then picked up an Essie 'Fill The Gap' basecoat. This smoothes out ridges on your nails before you apply your nail polish. I didn't really like this as it was quite thick when I applied it to my nails. This was €7.27.

I also picked up a Natural Collection blusher in the shade 'Peach Melba', this looks quite dark in the packaging, but when it's swatched it is a gorgeous peachy/ beige colour. The staying power is amazing and for €3.04 I will definitely be investing in more!

I then headed to Muji, which has definitely become one of my new favourite shops for buying my makeup storage. I will definitely be going back to buy some more storage pieces.

Here I picked up an acrylic desk organiser with three separate partitians. I am using this to store my makeup brushes and makeup tools. I love this as it being acrylic makes it easy to see everything. This was €9.
I also picked up an acrylic pot where I keep my foundation brushes. I prefer keeping these separate from my other powder brushes. This was only €4.
I also got a plastic basket to store some of my nail polishes. This was €5.50.
The last item I got from Muji was a little plastic basket with six partitians. I use this currently to store my MAC lipsticks as it's nice and compact and I can easily read all of the names. This was only €4.
I hope you enjoyed the first part of this haul. Stay tuned for the second part :)

Do you own any of these products? What do you think? How do you store your makeup?

  3. Your hauls always make me want to shop! I'm so jealous of all your MAC lipsticks, I only have three at the moment. You should post a MAC lipstick collection? I'd love to hear your recommendations and opinions.

    1. Thanks for your comment! I will definitely be doing a MAC lipstick collection when I finish this haul. Keep an eye out :)
