My weekly purchases 💕💕

  


Safe to say that I’m well and truly spent up this month! Have went a little crazy this week. So that’s me done now till next month. 

I thought I would do a little post to show you what I got! 


Primark and Lush 

Recently watched a Zoella video where she had purchased some of the 3 wick candles in a tin from Primark and she said they smelt amazing! So I went to have a peek and got a couple. 

Little bit gutted they didn’t do the Peony and white tea in a bigger size as that smells gorgeous but still happy with pineapple and ginger, and also the red berry and jasmine. 

The large 3 wicks were £3.50 each and the square one was £2. 

Also picked up this cute little t shirt. I say little, this is a size 6 because they all seemed enormous and I wanted one to tuck into my high waisted black jeans. I’m usually a 12 in a top! It was £3 in the sale. 

And of course I couldn’t walk past Lush without popping in. But I was trying to contain myself as they have already had quite a lot of money from me this month! 

I got the marshmallow bath melt and the Big Blue. Both smell divine! 

   
 


Very

Couple of makeup purchases from very that arrived this week. I’m still waiting on the NYX colour correction kit but that doesn’t seem to have arrived yet!

Kate Moss Rimmel  lasting finish in shade 101

This is a super light pink, it smells gorgeous and it’s a really pretty colour. 

  


Barry M – Make me blush

I wanted to try some cream blushes as I’ve asked for some cream blush palettes for Xmas from Makeup revolution. So to tide me over till then I bought this and so far it’s great! Really pretty bright pink but once blended leaves a lovely glow. 

 



Maybelline Baby Skin – Instant fatigue blur 

I’ve been using the green tube (pour eraser) which I’ve absolutely loved but just finished it recently. So I wanted to try this one out. It’s a total different texture so I’m finding it to be a bit strange. But I’m willing to persevere with it! 

   


Maybelline Great Lash 

Haven’t used this yet, but I’ve heard mixed reviews. So thought I would check it out myself because I’m a huge fan of Maybelline products. 


Loreal Perfect match concealer 

I’ve been using this as a highlighter for under my eyes and it’s absolutely perfect. Great coverage and really helps brighten my face. Super easy to apply too. 
    


MAC – Disney limited edition Malificent sculpting powder 

I have to admit I bought this just because I love Malificent 😑 however it was a total steal at £5.50 as I won it on eBay! Yay! And furthermore I really love it. I’ve been using it as my contour powder and it’s great for my jaw line/cheekbones. 

 


Estée Lauder – double wear – fresco 

I’ve been putting this off for a while even though I really really wanted it. I’ve just never spent this much on a foundation before. As I’ve said in previous posts, I’m a huge lover of drugstore brands and I’ve really never spent more that £12 on a foundation. 

But this was totally worth it. The coverage alone has convinced me that this purchase was the best idea I’ve had in a long time. 

But it goes on lovely, doesn’t feel heavy or feel like I’m wearing 10 layers of makeup. I really have fallen in love with it. 
 

 


So as you will see, I won’t be buying anything else for a while (I hope) as this lot and my superdrug haul was more than I’d wanted to spend this month! 

But there are some great products here! Let me know if you have tried any of them and what you thought 💕💕💕 

Thanks for reading.

Mac lip liner dupes (NYX edition) 

  

Just a mini blog tonight because I’m exhausted after having lots of fun with the kids today in the sun! 

So basically I love lip liners. I love how they can change the shape of your mouth instantly without any effort. I really love all of the Mac range but like I said in my lipstick dupe post, I just can’t afford to buy them all the time. 

So as time as gone by, I’ve tried lots of different cheaper brands to see if I can find some similar colours. Now obviously I only wear certain shades of lippy, so can only comment on the ones I’ve tried but in almost certain there will be a dupe for every shade they stock. 

NYX seem to be the favourite so far, which Helps because I adore anything by them. So here’s a few I’ve tried and tested, I wish I had them all to swatch but currently I now only own NYX because I loved them so much. 

Mac – Current = NYX – Deep Purple

  

Mac – Cherry = NYX – Plush Red  

 

Mac – Spice = NYX – Coffee  

 

Mac – Stripdown = NYX – Nude Beige  

 

Mac – Dervish = NYX – Peekaboo Neutral  

 

And my absolute favourite because it’s practically sold out everywhere! 

Mac – Whirl = NYX – Mauve  

 

Again I hope this has been helpful and helps you save some money! Please let me know down below if you know any other dupes as I’m always on the lookout! 

Thanks again for reading.

Mac lipstick dupes (Revlon Edition) 

  

I love Mac, don’t get me wrong. But sometimes I just can’t afford to fork out that kind of money on a lipstick! So I started trying to find Dupes in other brands that were much cheaper, where I could still get the colour and look I was going for! 

So here’s a list of a few different shades that I’ve tried and tested. 

Mac – Dark Side = Revlon – Berry Cherry

  

Mac – Ruby Woo = Revlon – Really Red 

 

Mac – Snob = Revlon – Pink Pout 

 

Mac – Nouveau = Revlon – Stormy Pink 

 

Mac – Vegas Volt = Revlon – Coral Berry 

 

Mac – Ravishing = Revlon – Smoked Peach 

 

Mac – Speed Dial = Revlon – Carnation 

 

Mac – Cyber = Revlon – Va Va Violet 

 

Mac – Angel = Revlon – Primrose 


Hope this helps some of you out! And save some pennies while you’re at it. Revlon is one of my favourite Lipstick brands but I really do love Mac as a treat.

Thanks for reading. Let me know down below if you know any good Mac dupes.
