Another mini haul!

This is a bit of a collective haul- as I've bought several little things over the past couple of weeks (not including the 3 new camping essentials I got) - somewhat predictably, there is nail polish, and chocolate!!! :)




First of all, Glamour are doing their annual Benefit freebie- I just picked up Bad Gal Lash mascara (I've used it before and I love the giant brush!!!) but now I'm thinking I should go back and pick up the other two samples (Porefessional and That Gal Face Brightening Primer) though I couldn't see them in Boots today when I looked.

Today (a fairly successful shop for work-appropriate clothing btw) I happened across a couple of lovely lovely things in the clearance section; firstly Cadbury Caramel Bunnies at 10p each! Naturally I couldn't resist them, so I bought 4 to share between my sister and I- we will have a wild Saturday night tonight!

I also discovered a highly exciting nail polish- Essie fill the gap! base coat- which supposedly helps to smooth over ridges in the nails (I don't have much of a ridge problem, but my flakey nails are always uneven and it's often obvious even with several coats of polish on!) I think this normally costs £8.99, but I found it for £2! I have no idea why it was on clearance, but I'm looking forward to trying it out  :)




And finally, another polish! No7 are still doing their £5 off vouchers, and as I had one in my purse I simply *had* to spend it... I spotted this beautiful Limited Edition Summer polish- it has multi-sized silver glitters in it (with a clear base) and for some reason I don't have anything like it in my collection! This one is £8 so only £3 with the voucher :) There is a gold version too, and I think I'll be sorely tempted to buy it if I get another voucher...




I think I've managed to be fairly restrained over the past month... (I won't tell you about the e.l.f. order I made, or the 24 nail art pens and nail polish thinner I ordered from eBay... not yet anyway!) However my new workplace is very close to the town centre, and I can see myself popping out to shop in my lunch break (this could be dangerous!)

What have you been buying? What are the other benefit samples like? (worth getting?)

    1. Haha yes, it's been at least 2 weeks since my last haul! (My sister and I watched confessions of a shopaholic and I think it scared me a little!!) It's lovely isn't it :) I know, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it on the clearance shelf!

  2. Rather good! I got the other two Glamour freebies, so do review the mascara if you get a chance. Swatches of the No.7 would be nice and hope you and your sister enoy the cadbury caramel!!!

    1. Will do! I'm sure I'll wear it very soon :) It'd be rude not to when it's only £3!
