A Mini Haul - Boots and Pennys (Primark)

A little bit of a random haul that I did last week and kept meaning to post but didn't get a chance to. 


From Penny's I got the most gorgeous little white lantern for tea lights. I love having candles burning and this suits my room. It was only €4 and when I got to the till they had a set of 30 tea lights in yellow, greens and blues for only €2.50, always good to have a supply of them:) I don't have a separate photo but you can see them easily enough in the main one. 

Next in Boots I got some E45 hand cream which I like to use at night when I put on my funky white cotton gloves to help hand cream and cuticle cream sink into my hands overnight. I like it because it's a really thick consistency. I also picked up a packet of Perfectil. I've used it before and I find it works and I just want to give my skin a boost before summer.

Boots are having a 3 for 2 on cosmetics at the moment so I decided to use it has an opportunity to pick up some more lip products. I got another Revlon Colourburst lipgloss in Strawberry and it's a beautiful bright pink. 

The main item that I went into Boots for was a 17 lipstick in Beehive. I saw this on Saloule's blog and fell in love with it and just had to get it! It is the perfect 'my lips but better' colour. 
I also got a red because I don't really have any red lipsticks and wanted to try one out. This one is called Hollywood and is what I would call a juicy red. While it is definitely red, it's not a mad bright pillarbox red. It's more sedate. I wore it out last week and I got so many compliments so I will definitely be wearing red lips more often!

So that's it for my little haul. I have to go to Dublin tomorrow and as I'm trying to save I really shouldn't be shopping - I mightn't even have time to - but I'll probably make a dash to MAC as the Surf Baby collection is out in the UK and I want to see if it's available here yet. And it is limited edition. Hmmm we'll see what happens.....


  1. Careful with those 17 lipsticks, mine melted into mush! Also, love to hear how you get on with the perfectil! I'm growing my hair out now and need all the help I can get!

  2. I'm obsessed with Beehive! But two of mine totally melted and got squished :) xxx

  3. Lorraine I'll definitely let you know how the perfectil goes!
    The Make Up Fairy, Beehive is such a perfect colour <3 it.

    Re: the mushiness, it's such pain isn't it? I have one other 17 lipstick and it's gone slightly mushy:( at least they're quite cheap to replace! xx
