Hi guys and welcome back!
Today I’m bringing you a little Primark Haul. With me now having a job (hoorah!) I decided to treat myself to celebrate and with Autumn now in full swing I knew Primark would have a whole host of new and exciting goodies for me to get my hands on.
Now I went in there to look at one particular item of clothing. Something I had, had my eye on for a while but would it really be a Primark trip if I only bought one thing? I mean, has that actually ever happened? So like many more before me and many others after me I fell for temptation and ended up coming out with a load of bits and pieces I didn’t really
need but absolutely adore!
Okay so the first thing I picked up was the thing I initially went in for which was this cute black corduroy mini skirt. Now I’m not much of a skirt fan. Imma chucky calved kinda gal – a unwelcome side effect of years of doing physical sports and exercise but after seeing these all over Instagram and being swamped by them at work I decided to give it a try. At first I really wasn’t keen. The skirt itself was lovely. It was really soft and comfortable and fell just above my knee, hiding all the parts of my legs I didn’t want to see but I didn’t feel it looked right with my pale, muscular legs. However after, much deliberation, I decided to purchase it. I’d wanted it for so long and I knew it would look better once I’d doused myself down with bit of false tan – if all else failed it would at least look rocking with a pair of warm tights and ankle boots and for £8 it was a bargain I couldn’t refuse.
The next thing I picked up were these gorgeous black embroidered ankle boots. I’d seen these a while ago and decided I wasn’t daring enough to wear them because they are a very statement piece and I’m not really a bold fashion person but decided to get them right there and then as recently I’ve found myself wanting to try new things and find ‘my style’ as I am hoping to get myself a wardrobe make cover once I’m a bit happier and confident with the way I look and I knew I would regret it later if I didn’t get them. I mean, they are gorgeous! And if I really needed to come up with a excuse to justify why I got them I can say they will look good with new skirt and black tights.
All right I don’t know about you but I think Primark are absolutely killing the beauty game right now. They’ve brought out some great ranges and some equally fab products. Sure there are some hits and misses but from what I’ve tried I think they’re pretty good – especially for such a little price! I’ve repurchased a few of their products so decided to pick up a couple of new things to try whilst I was in there.
Satin Liquid Lipstick
I’m a sucker for a good ol’ nude lip. So I was immediately drawn to this as soon as I spotted it. I got the colour Like That which is a pale pink/nudey colour and is apart of their latest ‘Insta Girl’ Collection – I mean how fitting? The packaging is really classy and hold a lot of product for just £2 and I honestly cant wait to try it.
I’ve wanted to try a priming oil for the longest time. I have combination skin and live for matte foundations however I always look very flat and dull. Even with highlight I don’t feel I have the look I’m craving which is more of a inner radiance look than a glow so I was super excited when I spied this new priming oil. Again it’s part of the ‘Insta Girl’ collection and costs £5. I haven’t used this yet but it claims to prep and moisturise the skin that with leave you with a dewy finish. I was going to buy the Kiehl’s priming oil after seeing one of the beautiful Jamie Genevieve’s videos however I think wasting £5 to see if I like the look is much better than splurging on something I may not end up liking. I am super excited to try this and I will definitely be doing a review on it so keep your eyes peeled!
The last thing I picked up from the makeup section was a new eyelash curler. My previous one had actually broken that morning so I decided to pick one of these little guys up while I was in there as you cant go wrong for £1. It was only when I got home that I actually realised my previous curler – the one that lasted me about six weeks was also from Primark. Ugh 🙄
Fun Bits And Pieces
The last thing I bought was something I was sucked in by straight away. I didn’t need this but if you read my blogs or know me, you’ll know that I LOVE Halloween and this just screamed my name. It’s this adorable Halloween chocker pack! I mean look how cute they are! I couldn’t stop myself, my favourite holiday and jewellery mixed into one? Yes please! To be honest this could have been a lot worse as there was a tonne of other items like earrings and headbands but also Christmas ones! I only managed to resist because Christmas is still a few months away – meaning I have time to go back and buy them! Honestly, this is my favourite thing that I picked up. I absolutely adore it and I cant wait to throw it on!
So that’s it! I’m really happy with my purchases and it’s not often I say that as everything tends to get back but I think I will be keeping all of these. I’ll see how I feel once I’ve tried everything on together haha! Let me know if any of you have tried that priming oil, I’d love to hear your thoughts on it!
Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time,
