Collective Haul- Part 2

Evening lovelies,

So this part of the haul I will put mostly a bulk of beauty products that I have bought over the last month. I may hold of the third part until Monday as I am heading into town to buy some storage for my room. Anyway on with this haul!

Again I headed to my local Boots and picked up a few things.

Firstly I picked up another Revlon Lip Butter in 'Candy Apple'. I have been obsessed with these lip butters eve since their launch almost two months ago. I love this shade as it is a more wearable colour for me. This was €11.18.
Next I picked up a Revlon Photoready concealer in the shade 002. This has quickly become my new favourite concealer. This has amazing coverage as well as having an SPF 20, which is always great. It has a lovely creamy texture to it. This was €9.66.
I also picked up a new Revlon Photoready Face Perfecting primer. I had run out of an ELF one I was using and was stuck so picked this up. It is a lovely primer, but I probably wouldn't re-purchase as it is a quite expensive for the size you get. This usually retails for around the €18 mark but I picked this up for €14.29.
The next two items I picked up in Debenhams.

I picked up a Benefit Moon Beam. I love this for under my foundation, it gives me a lovely dewy complexion which I love. This was €26.50.
I also picked up another Benefit item. It is of course the Benefit Hervana blusher. I had been putting off buying this for quite a while, but I had €10 off so I picked this up for €24 instead of the usual €34, which is a lot for a blusher. I highly recommend this blusher for people with paler skin.
The next item I picked up in Superquinn. I was stuck for a deodorant when staying over at my boyfriends so I just picked up the new Lynx for women, which surprisingly I quite like. This was €3.87.
The next item I picked up one day I was in college. I was stuck for a lip balm so picked up a Blistex in the chemist beside my college. These were 2 for 1. I particularly love the raspberry lemonade lip balm. These were €2.50 for the two.
The next couple of items I picked up in Sally's Beauty Supply in town.

I had saw a Youtuber talk about this nail polish and it was right up my alley! It is of course the China Glaze nail polish in 'Sweet Hook' this is a gorgeous pastel lilac colour. I featured this in a recent NOTD. This was only €5.84.
I also bought a Head Jog soft bristle hairbrush, I needed a brush for backcombing. This was only €2.84
I also got a nail buffer, this is great for evening out the surface of the nail, this was only 64c.
I also picked up a block nail file. This is a handy size to pop into your handbag while on the go. This was only 81c.
The next two items I ordered online.

The first item I ordered was Bioderma, I ordered this item quite a while ago but it finally arrived this week. I was excited as I have a lot about this. It is great for removing eye makeup and is very gentle too. I bought this on eBay from this seller. This was £8.71 so around €10 (not including P&P).
Another item I ordered from Cloud 10 Beauty this is a great website that sells a lot of brands that aren't easily available in Ireland. I picked up a Nuxe Rêve de Miel lip balm (I know another!) and this is a gorgeous lip balm, which smells divine! This was €12.50.

The next items I picked up at my local MAC counter.

The first items I picked up was a MAC nail polish, this was from the Shop MAC, Cook MAC collection. I got the shade 'Al Fredo', which is a gorgeous creamy yellow colour with a slight hint of green. This was €12.50.

I also picked up three lipsticks. I got these using the Back 2 MAC recycling scheme. This is when you return any 6 empty MAC items, this includes any plastic or glass. 

The first shade I got was 'Pink Popcorn' this is from the Reel Sexy collection which is in stores now. This looks purple in person but when swatched it is a beautiful pinky/ lavender colour with a lustre finish. This colour is really wearable for daytime as it is slightly semi-opaque. 

The next shade I got was 'Speed Dial' which is part of MAC's permanent collection. This a gorgeous blue-based pink with a gold shimmer. This has a cremesheen finish to it, which feels lovely and moisturising on the lips.

The last lipstick I got was 'Snob' which is also part of MAC's permanent collection. This is a lovely cool-toned pink with a satin finish, which can be a little drying but with a bit of lip balm before you apply this you should be good to go!

The last item I picked up at MAC was a lipglass gloss in the shade 'Pink Lemonade'. This is a gorgeous pinky/ coral colour, which is a lovely colour for summer. The formulation of this is lovely as it isn't as sticky as other lipglosses. This was €17.

The next item I picked up was a Hask Argan Oil from Penney's. I picked up two of these. This leaves a lovely shine to your hair, without looking greasy. You apply to damp hair, I adore the smell of this, it's like oranges. This is a great alternative to Moroccan Oil at only €2.50 a bottle!
The next item I picked up was a bit of an impulse from H&M, a cute nail polish with multi-coloured hexagonal glitter in it. This was around €3-€4. 
The last item in this haul was something I treated myself to when I finished my exams. I picked up this Yves Saint Laurent Sheer Volupte Candy lipstick in House of Fraser. I got this in the shade '4'. I love everything about this- the formulation, colour, texture. It is really just a glorified lip balm but when I spotted this a while back and I fell in love! This was on the pricy side at €30.50.

I hope you enjoyed the second part of this haul, keep your eyes peeled for the third part :)

Do you own any of these products? What do you think? Did anything catch your eye?
