May Buys

Hello my lovelies,

I am back again with everything I have been buying in the month of May. I did have a little splurge and treat myself on a few items – but that’s ok right? I always believe in treating yourself – you work hard for your money so you might as well have a little retail therapy. I am so excited by the things I have brought the month and I can finally have a play with them after writing this post!

This is one of my favourite shops to go hunting round and finding some bargains. They seriously stock some good brands at brilliant prices so if you have a spare hour I would certainly head down to your local store to see what they have to offer.

FYI – the links will not be to the TX MAXX website, they will be where you can find them as stores carry different things and their products aren’t all shown on their website!

Nip + Fab Viper Venom Micro Blur Fix – see here

So it retails for £19.95 and I picked this up for £9.99 – bargain! I have always wanted to try Nip + Fab products and I was on the hunt for trying a new primer out so I thought this was the best time to pick it up and see what all the hype is about. If you are a lover of Nip + Fab they do an awful lot of their range at TK MAXX so I would highly recommend you get down to your local store!

Precision Beauty: Deep Cleaning Pore Scrubbers – see here

I have heard a lot about these pore scrubbers and I thought it was about time I bit the bullet and brought one, well two. This was great value for money at £3.99! I will be using this during my skincare routine when I am cleansing so I will report back and let you know what I thought of them.

Precision Beauty: Blending Oval Brush – see here

I picked this up for £6.99 and I feel like I have picked up a right bargain! I have already used oval brushes, one being from Make Up Revolution but in the last week it broke so I am very happy that I picked this one up. Compared to the Make Up Revolution brush this feels a lot softer and more sturdy – I have high hopes!

Garnier: Fresh Radiance Boosting Scrub see here

I love Garnier as a brand for skincare, I have never had a product from them and didn’t like. So when I saw this for £2.99 I thought it would be rude not to. This sounds like it is going to be perfect for mornings when I need my face to be more awake so lets hope it lives up to my expectations.

Charlotte Tilbury 

I recently went to Westfields in London, Shepherds Bush to walk round the corner and saw they had a Charlotte Tilbury store – I literally gasped so loud everyone stopped to look at me, whoops! I was so blooming excited I just couldn’t contain how happy I was. The store was absolutely beautiful and I couldn’t go in there without picking up some goodies..

Luxury Eyeshadow Palette – The Vintage Vamp see here

I am so happy to finally get my hands on this beauty. I have had this on my list for a little while now and when I went in store I knew I had to get it. I now have 3 of these gorgeous palettes and I am sure my collection will not stop there!

Matte Revolution Lipstick – Glastonberry see here

I have wanted this lipstick for the longest time, ever since I saw Zoella wearing years ago I knew it had to be mine. Due to the spring weather I won’t be able to wear it for a while but when Autumn comes this will be constantly on my lips I know it, watch this space.

I think every month, without fail I always have at least one trip to Boots – I can’t help it! I have an addiction and they constantly have offers on that I simply cannot refuse, I have an addiction ok!

Soap and Glory: The Greatest Scrub of All see here

As I have been loving the Soap and Glory skincare recently I thought I would try some more products in the range. It has a very bold claim of being the greatest scrub of all. We shall see, I will be sure to write a review about this so keep your eyes peeled for that.

Collection: Lasting Perfection Concealer in Cool Medium see here

A cult classic in my collection and I am sure it is for a lot of people. My one is currently nearing the end of it’s life and I cannot be without this so I thought I would pick it up. I always struggle to get hold of my shade it’s constantly out of stock so when I see it in store I always pick one up.

Soap and Glory: Peaches and Clean, Deep Cleansing Milk see here

This is another repurchase it, mine has completely run out and I couldn’t be without it. I did do a review of this product here so if you are thinking of buying it, this may help you out. Seriously good value for money!

Soap and Glory: the ULTIMELT see here

Another Soap and Glory product and another repurchase – I can’t help it I just love these products! This seriously rivals Liz Earle’s Hot Cloth Cleanser so if you are thinking of trying a Hot Cloth Cleanser and don’t want to pay the price for Liz Earle this is a good alternative. I have also done a review of this product here

Collection: Primed and Ready Mattifying Pore Primer see here

This is an amazing primer! I know another repurchase, I am a creature of habit and there are just some products I can’t be without so I always buy another for when the one I am currently using runs out. I am sure I am not the only one that does this.

La Roche Posay – Effaclar Duo+ see here

I have wanted this for the longest time, countless times I have put this in my basket and then put it back because I couldn’t justify buying it. This month I decided to just go ahead and buy it because I have problem skin at the moment and with all the reviews I have read on this I am hoping this will be my savior!

I don’t usually go into this store, but I had a voucher for a free foundation and where I was at the time it was the most convenient place to go, seriously I need to go in there more because the beauty section is pretty amazing!

Clinique: Beyond Perfection Foundation and Concealer – see here

So I actually had a voucher to pick up a sample of this, before investing in foundation it is a good idea to get a sample pot and I have heard a lot about it. The lady at the counter colour matched me and put a little in a pot for me to try out she also gave me samples of the moisture surge which is something I really want to try out so I was very happy. I will be doing a review of this when I have tried it out and let you know whether I will be purchasing the bottle or not.

That’s everything for the month of May – I went a little crazy I know! Let me know if you have tried any of these products and your thoughts on them especially the ones that I haven’t tried yet.
