Payday beauty haul october 2015

Payday beauty buys – October 2015

For the rest of this month I am fully on stage 1 of the Hermit Plan (i.e. not spending money), but it’s payday, and there are shops, so I may have bought some things in them… Full reviews of some of these will follow, but here is the lowdown of the payday haul!

Sleek i-lust The Gold Standard

Sleek i-Lust eyeshadow palette – The Gold Standard (£7.49 at Boots). I think this is a new Christmas palette but it definitely contains shades I’ll wear all year round as I love a gold shimmery eyeshadow (partially because I am utterly rubbish at eye makeup application and gold sparkles are pretty idiot proof). It contains 4 powders, and 2 glosses), all with fashion-designer inspired names (Coco, Vivienne etc.).

Max Factor Velvet Volume mascara

Max Factor Velvet Volume False Lash Effect Mascara (£8.99 at Boots). I used to love Max Factor mascara but haven’t worn any in ages so I thought I’d give this a try as I like the idea that it leaves your lashes feeling soft.

Revlon Perfect Pair & Cherries in the Snow

Revlon Gel Envy Nail Polish – Perfect Pair & Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick – Cherries in the Snow (£6.99 & £7.99 at Boots). I have sooo much Revlon, but I always find more that I want! I picked up the new nude Gel Envy shade ‘Perfect Pair’, and as Boots have a 3 for 2 on all makeup at the moment I added Cherries in the Snow lipstick, which I’ve wanted to add to the matching nail polish for a while – it’s a super vibrant happy colour and I love it already.

Clinique colour pop

Clinique Pop Lip Colour & Primer – Nude Pop & Cherry Pop. These are free with Glamour magazine this month – such a good freebie (I bought two mags to get both). Both great shades, but I’m loving the Nude Pop most so far.

Jin Soon nail polish

Jin Soon nail polish in Azurite & Debonair (£15.00 at Liberty). I love finding a new formaldehyde free nail polish brand and I was immediately in love with the Jin Soon collection which is relatively new into Liberty. From top manicurist/nail artist Jin Soon Choi, there are so many standout colours and sparkles that I think I’m going to be building up a little family of these… For now, I’ve gone for Azurite (a deep blue sparkle, I have been looking for one of these for ages!), and Debonair (a soft indigo-purple).

Superdrug skin products

Superdrug B. Radiant Overnight Mask, Clearly Youthful Retexturising Glycolic Peel-off mask & Clearly Youthful Hydrating day Serum (£5.95, £4.89 & £4.89 at Superdrug). I’m still amazed at the cheap things at Superdrug! And these are cheap and on offer! (the Overnight Mask is an introductory price, and the Clearly Youthful products on BOGOF) I love anything which will make me wake up looking better, so the Overnight Mask was the first thing I picked up, but I’m more excited about the Clearly Youthful range – it promises hydration, pore reduction, blemish reduction & more, containing lots of lovely acids and all sounding too good to be true for the price – I hope that isn’t the case!

Pixi Glow Tonic

Pixi Glow Tonic (£18.00 from Pixi). I’ve finally allowed myself to buy this, I’ve used it once and I think I can already see the glow! It could just be a good skin day though, so let’s see if it continues…

Yeah, I bought a lot… but that’s it, home made soup for the rest of the month, no Pret lunches for me!

  1. Lovely haul! I’ve meaning to buy the Pixi glow tonic for such a long time and just keep convincing myself not to for some reason. Is it worth it?
