Beauty haul #500:00:00
This month I have cut down on my spending after creating a huge hole in my bank account last month (see last months beauty haul here) so I only got a few bits and bobs. But I am super excited to be trying these products out!
Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water - £4.99
I'm not a huge fan of cleansing waters because I feel like I have to use a lot to get rid of my eye makeup - particularly mascara. But I thought I would try this one out as a lot of people have said it is very similar to Bioderma, which is meant to be amazing. I do think it is better than the L'Oreal skin perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution but it still does take me fairly long to remove my makeup. I think the trick is to soak a cotton pad full of the water and hold it over your lashes to weaken the makeup slightly. I do find it takes a lot of rubbing to get it all off though so I'm still not won over by this product.
Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Polish - £3.99 each
My flatmate showed me how great these Gelly nail polishes are and I just had to get them. I think I got them from Superdrug as they were 3 for 2. I got the shades watermelon, guava and grapefruit. They are so opaque and two coats makes it look like you've got false nails on. I love them and I'll definitely have to try out some new shades soon!
Makeup Revolution Eyeshadow Palettes - £4 each
I ordered these off superdrug after being heavily inspired by so many beauty bloggers and YouTubers. These were said to be a dupe for the naked palettes and similarly to the MUA eyeshadow palettes, they have the colours of the naked palettes in the exact same order. I think these look way better than the MUA eyeshadow palette and they are just as pigmented. I got the essential mattes, Iconic 2 and Iconic 3. I was going to treat myself to the naked 2 palette but now that I have these I don't see the need to. I'm super excited to do some looks with these shadows!
I hope you've enjoyed this months beauty haul. If you have any suggestions on what I should keep my eye on for May then let me know in the comments below.
