What I got... ELF

I actually really like e.l.f stuff; there's such a varity of products - although some I'd never buy - and they're very good value for money - most of the products being mostly under £4! So I decided to go ahead with my 2nd order as there was a free delivery code sent out in an email: I'd really recommend signing up to their newsletters as there's an offer more or less every week. So I got:

*2 Blending Eye Brushes - £1.50 each
*Defining Eye Brush - £1.50
*Eyeliner Brush - £1.50
*Gloss Lash & Brow Clear Mascara - £1.50
*Matte Lip Colour in Coral (as I saw on ETCLLMLRS' blog, I was debating what colour to get) - £3.50

So all in all I spent only £11 with free P+P for 6 products that I'm all pretty happy about :D

Superdrug Dry Shampoo - Chocolate Brownie

I've been considering dry shampoo as an essential just to touch up on those days when my hair's a bit lack luster on the 2nd sometimes 3rd day hair. Batiste is the "go to" brand for dry shampoo, but I've been looking for alternatives as - for me - Batiste isn't too worth it, a can doesn't last me too long. So when I saw this in Superdrug on offer for 99p, I thought I'd just give it ago.

This one's the Chocolate Brownie one and it's coloured brown to suite brunettes so I thought it would be idea. However, I was wrong. Im just going to say it - this is an awful product... So you spray it in and it makes your hair feel cold - but this is quite normal - then expecting it to settle and leave the residue, however it makes your hair just feel wet and sticky... I've tried rubbing and working it in with my fingers but a brown powdery residue came off into my hands and it made no difference to my hair. I looked at my hair in the mirror and it looked worse than before I sprayed it in - even more greasy looking and it felt so horrible...

I thought this could just be a one off so I tried it a few more times and the same thing happened. The only nice thing about it was the smell which is quite okay...

I would never buy it again and wouldn't recommend it... The only other decent alternative to Batiste is this one (my review here).

Just a quick post... I've been buying magazines quite a bit lately; I dont really know why... But I decided to buy Glamour Magazine the other week - it was the one with Reece Witherspoon on the front. When I was flicking through it at home; there were like 3 free samples in it and they were actually decent products.

I'm not going to go into tones of detail - it would be quite a boring post. But I'm quite excited to try the Chanel foundation and I hope its a good match, the sample is in the shade '30 Beige'. But the Rimmel foundation I really like; I think I'm going to purchase it and the match for me was spot on, it was in '200' I cant remember the name though :S And the whole sachet lasted me a whole week! So there is quite a decent amount in there - well for me anyway... And the other thing is a face wash/mask thing which to be honest I'm in no hurry to try...

Cosmopolitan Magazine

I don't buy magazines that regularly, so when I walk past the magazine bit in Tesco or something and there's a front cover that looks interesting or a good freebie; I buy it. This time for me; it's the Cosmopolitan magazine, with the lovely and beautiful Holly Willoughby on the cover.

I got this magazine because of the TWO, FREE mini CLINIQUE products. I was like; "Yes please!"

I really like mascara so I picked the one with that in and for the other product I didn't really mind, but I didn't really want the lip gloss as I'm not much of a fan. So I got a mini High Impact Mascara and Moisture Surge (cream/gel). The other two products available are a mini 7 day Exfoliare Scrub and a Super Moisturising Lip Gloss. 

What every product you prefer, it's well worth it. The magazine is only £3.50.

What I Got...

*Black T-Shirt - River Island, £15 
*Patterned Silk Scarf - Primark, £3
*Stripy T-Shirt - Primark, £6
*Revlon Eye Shadows - Superdrug, £4.99
*Lovehearts - Superdrug, Got given them at the counter for free :D
*MUA Lipstick - Superdrug, £1
*Cosmopolitan Magazine - Tesco, £3.50

I arranged other pictures onto a page but the quality has slightly decreased but it's still okay... I finished college early today so I thought I'd do a bit of shopping whilst it was still quiet. I mainly went to get my friends birthday present but as always, came back with other stuff. I'm so happy withe the stuff I got from Superdrug, the Revlon eye shadow palettes were only £4.99 each but normally they're £7.99 - I couldn't resist so I got two. The Lovehearts also I got for free - the lovely guy at the till gave them to me. And lastly, I needed to pop into Tesco for some food but also decided to get Cosmopolitan Magazine as you get two free Clinique products!

There may be some posts on some of these items soon!
