My birthday weekend shopping Part 1 :)

I've been a bad blogger!  I haven't had the motivation to write due to absolute exhaustion from trying to get to work and back in one piece over the past couple of weeks.  Friday morning was particularly hilarious as my sister and I attempted  to make our way to the train station like two wrapped-up versions of Bambi, legs sliding all over the place!

Anyway, after not driving for two weeks, Saturday called for a trip to Newry to pick up my sister's ring that we're buying her for Christmas.  We got it and it's beautiful, will post pictures after Christmas :)  We had a wander in the shops and in the Buttercrane Centre, came across a very loud racket which we found to be the opening of Poundland!  A wonderous place where everything is a quid!  Needless to say, I managed to find the makeup in less than ten seconds, what can I say, it's a gift.

This is what I got, pretty restrained if you ask me!
I got Cover Girl's Clean Makeup in colour 240 natural beige and 225 buff beige.  Am looking forward to trying these out.

On the left is Gosh's Vitamin Booster nail care and on the right is Nail Whitener also from Gosh.  I was delighted with these!

Here is Revlon's nail growth treatment, step 3, didnt see the step 3 bit until I got home!  On the right is NYC Colour weel in Scarlet Letter.  Not sure about this but wanted to give it a go for a quid.

Top left we have Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Sheerest Cream Blush in Sunrise, top right is Sheerest Cream Blush in Ginger, and bottom is Natural Powder Blush in Plumberry.  I'm looking forward to trying these out.

Last of all from Poundland is Sally Hansen's Dry Kwik.  I'm really excited about trying this and I picked up an extra one for a future giveaway.  It's worth a try now isn't it?  I'm all about the bargains.  If these products are good, then I'll be delighted, if not, I've only spent a couple of pounds on them :) 

It was my birthday yesterday and I got some brilliant presents, I'll try to organise myself and post tonight :) 

Has anyone tried these products and if so, how didya get on?

  1. I used to use that Covergirl foundation, but now I prefer their TruBlend one, also because it has a pump.

    Have you tried Revlon ColourStay? Cause on Saturday it's $24 off where I live because of the Boxing Day sales and I don't know if I should just stock up on them.

    I'm following your blog and I would appericate it if you could you please check out my blog? www.jaciwalker.blogspot.com
