Pay Day Treats


I love a little pay day treat and this month was no different. I didn't get many things, just picked up a few essential makeup/beauty items. 

Garnier Cleansing Micellar Water
This is honestly one of the greatest purchases I have ever made. It's perfect for removing my makeup at the end of the night, I use around 4-6 cotton pads soaked in this water and it removes everything. From my foundation to my waterproof mascara.  
Barry M Chisel Cheeks Contour Kit
I'm new to contouring and this looks like an easy kit to use. It has a little 3 step guide inside & 3 different colours. A light for highlighting, a medium for bronzing, and a dark for sculpting. The only downside is the fact it doesn't have a mirror, if it did it would be perfect for carrying around in my handbag to do my touch ups during the day. 
Collection Eyes Uncovered Palette
I'm not someone who usually wears eyeshadow but I've seen so many bloggers talking about this palette that I just had to pick it up and give it a try. It's a small palette full of beautiful nude shades. And it only cost me £2.99! What a bargain. There is some matte shadows as well as a couple of shimmer ones, perfect for creating that subtle day time smokey eye look. 
Red Cherry Individual Lashes
As mentioned in a previous post, I'm a lover of individual lash extensions, and I saw these pop up as new on the website for £3.49, with free uk delivery! So I had to pick up a couple of boxes to stock up on. I even got 10% off my order. Red Cherry are my favourite for strip lashes, so I'm hoping these will be just as good! They are also knot free, which is perfect as I find my individual lashes tend to get knotted after a while. 
Pure Definition Eyebrow Pencil
Pure Colour Eyeliner Pen
I was on a break at work and walked into the New Look store near my work for a little browse, and saw this huge new make up stand in the middle. I was instantly drawn to it and all it's pretty colours, I found myself instantly drawn to these two items. I've not used either product yet but I'm sure I will soon, the eyebrow pencil was only £1.99. It's a wax like consistency and has a twist up bottom, so no more running around the house looking for a sharpener. The eyeliner cost £3.99 and has a super thin felt tip like nib. Making it perfect for a sleek cat eye flick! I don't usually wear eyeliner on my top lid but this looks like it will be simple and easy to use. I'll be making sure totry out some of the other New Look beauty products, especially the nail polishes. 
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
This is one of my makeup bag must haves. I always pick this up every time I shop as I like to have one in my handbag, as well as my makeup bag and a back up, I always get the transparent colour as it doesn't look caked on or alter the colour of my face. Which I find a lot of face powders do. It stops my makeup from looking shiny for around 6 hours which is great as I find most powders tend to wear off after an hour or two. It's retails for around £3.99 which is a great price for what it does. 

I will possibly review the contour palette and the eyebrow pencils and eyeliner pen in more detail on another post once I have had the chance to try them out. And I'm sure I'll have plenty more Pay Day treats as the months go on! I just can't help myself from buying stuff!

Thanks for reading, keep checking back for more posts and enjoy your Sunday evening! xoxo

  1. I love the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder too, the transparent shade is so perfect! Especially if you're fair-skinned and most other powders make you look orange.

    I've been hearing so many good things about that Garnier Micellar Water, I think I need to pick some up! I currently use the Nivea version, but it doesn't remove my waterproof mascara. Thanks for sharing! x Krista
