First haul post

It was my birthday a couple of weeks ago and I had a bit of money left over so I popped into town after work to see what I could find. I'm really happy with my purchases and can't wait to try them all out this weekend.

First I went into Boots, I knew exactly what I wanted from there so I was really happy to see they had one left!

This is the Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in nude. I used this today to line my waterline for a more natural looking alternative to white liner and I love this and it lasted all day, something that I very rarely find with high street brands. This is priced at £3.99 - bargain!

Boots currently have an offer on 3 for 2 on make up so not one to miss out on a bargain I picked up a couple of other products to take full advantage.

 These are the Barry M Hi Shine Gel Effect Nail Polishes, I think these I fairly new. I got them in Pomegranate (left) and Blackberry (right). These are really thick polishes, I tried them each out on one nail. The purple only needed one coat to be completely opaque but the pink would definitely need 2. They seemed to dry fairly quickly, however after coming out of the bath they both peeled off in one strip. I didn't put a base or top coat on as I was only testing the colour so this may help but I will be doing a full review of them shortly.
These were also priced at £3.99 so all three items came to a total of £7.98.

I then decided to take a trip into my local TK Maxx, I do love this shop and they sometimes have some real gems hidden but the beauty section in mine always has so many items that have been opened or smashed and its just really annoying. Having said that I did find some amazing (in my opinion) bargains that were in perfect condition.

First up I spotted these hidden right at the back of the shelf. It was a pack of 3 China Glaze nail crackles, they were £5.99. I've only ever tried the Barry M crackle polish and I wasn't overly impressed but I thought that with these being glitter and China Glaze they may be better.

As I was heading over to the till I spotted another shelf so went for a look and was really shocked to find it packed full of Urban Decay palettes for £12.99 each. I picked up this one as it had the most colours that I would actually use. Alot of the others had lots of greens and purples which I already have a lot of.

I love all these colours, this palette is called the Mariposa Palette and retailed for £26 so not bad at all for £12.99 I don't think.

The next item is the one that I was most excited about, I was actually looking at this online the other day but didn't order for whatever reason.

 I've wanted the Urban Decay liner in perversion for a while. Its supposed to the blackest black liner. The full size liner retails for £13 so I'm really happy to get 5 for less than the price of 1 full size to try. They are quite large for travel sizes (0.8g the Rimmel pencil is 1.2g) so I don't think I will even get through the travel sizes.

All in all I'm really impressed with my haul, I'm hopefully going back to TK Maxx this weekend to see if they have any other UD products in. I will be doing a full review of each item shortly.

Have you managed to bag any bargains from anywhere recently?
