Beauty haul ♥

Red magazine* (£3.90) / Glamour magazine* (£2)

This month the magazine's have hit gold once again and I couldn't resist picking up these two. This month, Red have teamed up with REN Skincare and all I've seen are brilliant reviews of this and I thought I could take them on holiday with me so I picked it up. You get 15ml of the Vertiver v7 Hand & Body Cream, 15ml of the Hydra-Calm Global Protection Day Cream and 5ml of the Active 7 Radiant Eye Gel. I couldn't find anything on the hand & body cream but I've only seen good reviews on the other two products so I'm really excited to try them! Glamour have done it again, another brilliant collaboration, this month with Balance Me. I've been looking for a new eye cream and when I saw this I thought why not. I've tried this a couple of times and LOVE it. It really is so soothing around the eyes, let's just see if it makes a difference for me :)

Rimmel 60 Seconds nail polish in 650 - Magnetise (£1) - Poundland

Seriously, Poundland, I LOVE it. You can find the best things in there! I urge you all to go and have a root because you should be able to find something you absolutely love :) I have tried this polish and I don't think it's amazing on it's own, it's very sheer so I'm thinking to using it as a top coat on a nude polish, give it a little something extra, I'll let you know how it goes!

MUA eyeshadow palette in 'Undressed' (£4) - Superdrug

MUA Mosaic Bronzer (£2 for £4 on Eyeshadow Trios, Mosaic Bronzers & Blush or £2.50) - Superdrug

I love love love MUA. I already own the 'Starry Night' palette and I use it practically everyday but I do think the 'Undressed' palette will give it a run for its money! Now, I've not used a bronzer before (shocking, I know!) I just didn't know what to do with one but I took the plunge and bought it. I used it today and LOVED it, won't look back now! 

Lemony Flutter cuticle butter* (£5.95) - Lush

I've seen a lot of brilliant reviews of this and I really wanted a cuticle butter to make them look a lot better so my fiance bought me it for a birthday gift (keeper, eh? :D) I love the smell of this, so fresh and seeing as I can use this as a hand cream and on my elbows I think it's totally worth the money! 

What do you think of my purchases/gifts? Have you tried any of them?

*: gifts bought for my birthday - see disclaimer


  1. How pretty is that magnetize polish from poundland :)


    1. I know, I need to do a post about it :) I do love Poundland! xo

  2. I love lush! I wanna try that lemon cuticle cream, 'lemony cream choc'... OMG sounds good enough to eat!
    Great post lovely. And great blog

    1. I've just put it on my hands and toes now. It's so heavenly. And if it fixes my toes (they are super dry :/) then I'll go to my nearest lush store and cry on them with happiness! Aha! X
