Collective winter haul


I haven’t done a haul in ages so I thought I’d show you guys what I’ve bought over October-November-December time.

I’ll start with the limited edition Real techniques duo fibre brushes I bought these because unlike the core collection, which I don’t have, I knew if I purchased this set I’d actually use them and enjoy them. As you can see from the dirty brushes I have been using them, and enjoying them.

On a different visit to Boots, sometime in early December,  I picked up the Real Techniques stippling brush,  setting brush, and shading brush, which have been on my wishlist for a while. These are all sold separately, and when I saw them on a 3for2 offer I had to snatch them up.


I bought MAC “Dark Side” in late October or early November. It’s a gorgeous oxblood colour, and the amplified formula means it’s pigmented and not drying on the lips. I’ve been wearing it quite a bit with Rimmel “Wine” lipliner underneath. I think I’ll wear it in January time because I still class that as winter time.

I ran out of my trustee Maybelline “The Falsies” and thought I’d give something else a go, so I picked up L’Oréal False lash flutter which was on offer. The brush is has two different sides to it, and at first I didn’t like the wetness of the mascara however as it’s drying out a bit I’m beginning to enjoy it.

I visited Boots unknowingly on Black Friday. I say “unknowingly” because I don’t understand why England would have black Friday sales if they don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, and I didn’t even know it was Black Friday until I saw my emails. Anyway I went in and there was some awesome deals as well as triple points on your advantage card if you spent over £30. I decided to take the opportunity to buy a perfume that I always spray myself with if I pass it in the shops which is the Lancome “La Vie Est Belle”. It’s the 75ml Eau de Parfum and it came with a 200ml body lotion to go with it.

Last but not least I took advantage of the deals The Body Shop  were having online and got myself two things from the Vitamin E range. I raved about the sample of the Vitamin E eyecream in my favourites, and said how well it worked underneath my concealer. It had been on my wishlist for so long and when the package arrived today I got a post-shopping-high because I actually own it now. Along with the eyecream I decided to pick up the Vitamin E lipbalm because I thought I’d upgrade from Vaseline to something more nourishing.

That’s the end of my haul I hope you enjoyed it!

Have you bought any of the same products as me?  Do you own any of these products? Are they in your wishlist?
