Pay Day Shopping Haul 

Beauty

Everyday payday I like to a bit of online shopping, OK, a lot of online shopping. I just find shopping online so much easier than walking around a shop and it gives you the time you need to decided weather or not you really need the item. I only went on 2 sites, Amazon and Boots and I am actually proud of my myself as I didn’t buy that much! 


Rapid Lash I purchased this from Amazon for about £18 which is on the pricey side, but I am hoping it is going to be worth it! I had short lashes and i want long lashes so in theory this should work! I will be doing a blog post after I have used it for a month to see the results. 

Rose Hip Oil I decided to buy this as Shaaanxo uses it for her skin care routine and as it was only £10 from Amazon I thought why not. Oils are supposed to be really good for your skin and help it in so many ways. Once again I will do a blog post on this and my impressions of it. 

No 7 Shimmer Body Oil I have had my eye on one of these body oils for a while now and really wanted to try out the Body Shop one but that is a little bit more expensive. This is a 100ml bottle and was £12 so I am hoping it was worth it. I am mainly waiting to use this when I am on holiday at night on top of my tan. Once again I will do a blog post on this, most probably not till August though. 

Seventeen Instant Glow I have been really into cream bronzers and I found this one for £5 from Boots. I have yet to use it, but so far it looks really nice. One day I will buy the Chanel one, but until then I will make do with drugstore ones! 

Scholl Velvet Smooth As summer is approaching and I want to wear flip flops and sandals more I thought I would invest in them. I picked this up from Amazon for about £20, which so far I am so happy with it! I have only used it for a few days now and it has made such a difference! Can’t wait to see what my feet will be like in a months time! 

Shaaanxo & Carli Bybel Palettes Swatches & First Impressions 

Beauty

These palettes from BH Cosmetics have been out for ages now, and I didn’t even think I could actually get a hold of one. But one late night shopping spree turned into me finding out that I could get them and ship them to me. As I am a huge fan of Shaaanxo and watch all her videos I knew I had to get her palette hands down. But I also had heard so many good things about the Carli Bybel palette so I thought I had better buy that. And both palettes are absolutely gorgeous! I got both palettes for about $30 which is pretty reasonable including shipping. But when it arrived in the UK I had to pay a customs charge of £12, which I was a little angry at but its worth it at the end of the day! I still haven’t got around to swatching the lipstick side of the Shaaanxo palette as I can’t bring myself to make a dent and ruin it just yet! Soon! 


Both of the palettes packaging is lovely, but they are made of card so they will get ruined easily so I’m trying as hard as I can to keep them in pristine condition. 

Here are the eyeshadow palettes next to each other. As you can see they are actually quite similar in shades. They have very wearable neutral shades which are my favourite kind!

 

In the Shaaanxo palette there is a mixture of mattes and shimmers which are perfect. The colours arnt what they seem though, which I love! When you see the swatches below you will see what I mean! 

And the lip side of the palette is just, beautiful! How perfect do these shades look! 


Here are the swatches of the palette, from left to right on my arm is from top to bottom in the palette. They are the most beautiful shades I have ever seen! 

These are the shimmery shades, and these are most definelty my favourite. They have a really lovely satin finish to them and look so glowing. 


This palette is also a beauty, the shades are so shimmery and warm toned. I love the fact the bottom row is larger, as they can be used for highlight. 

Here are the swatches of the Carli Bybel palette from the larger pans on the left to the mattes on the right. 

Overall I am so happy with both my purchases, but of course I’m a little biased to Shaaanxo one so that one is definelty my favourite. Hopefully one day I will be brave enough to try out the lip colours!
