Haul | Blogger Shopping with Porcelain Beauty!


Shopping with bloggers...it's just not something that ends well for your bank balance! It's safe to say that besides the money I've put aside for Duty Free, July is going to be a frugal month. However it was well worth the blow to my bank account because of all the lovely things I picked up in Leeds and the chance to meet one of my favourite bloggers; Heather from Porcelain Beauty! I don't think I've ever randomly met up with a person I know from the internet before but it's good to throw yourself out of your comfort zone a bit and I'm glad I did as she's as lovely as I thought she would be. So, what did I pick up in my rampage...?

First stop: KIKO. Although you can get it online, there's nothing like swatching things for yourself and there are only a few stores in the UK (one of them being Leeds). It was also perfect timing as they had 30% off just about everything! (Prices stated below are RRP) I chose two rosy/nude shades in the Velvet Mat Satin Lipstick: 611 Autum Pink and 612 Strawberry Pink (£6.90 each) - I have very high hopes for the formula of these. The discount meant that putting together a custom palette came to under £15! I had wanted a highlight shade too but they were sold out, however I'm still pretty pleased with my neutral quad. I picked up four Infinity Eyeshadows: 257 Metallic Light Copper, 216 Pearly Nutmeg, 217 Mat Cocoa and 212 Pearly Hazelnut (£5.90 each) and put them in the 4 x Eyeshadow Clic Palette (£5.90, I think). I'm loving the quality so far! I picked up a few Limited Edition bits too. I copied Heather and got a Generation Next Cool Touch Eyeshadow in 02 Revolutionary Brown (£8.90), which has a very interesting creamy texture. From the stunning Modern Tribes Collection I got the super-soft Face Brush (£14.90), the massive Essential Bronzer in 201 Sienna Melange (£17.90) and the beautiful Sahara Glow Highlighter (£14.90) pearls.

Next we hit Boots and Superdrug. There was a 2 for £12 on all L'Oreal products and I'd been wanting to try a new mascara. They were £10.99 each anyway so it would've been silly not to get two! I picked up False Lash Flutter (£10.99) on Heather's recommendation and False Lash Telescopic (£10.99), which I've already tried and LOVE. Trapped by the deals again I picked up two Barry M polishes in order to spend £6 and get a free Gelly polish! I chose another Sunset Daylight Curing in For the Stars (£4.99), a lovely bright neon orange, another Speedy Quick Dry in Lap of Honour (£3.99) which is a pastel purple and then for free a Summer 2015 Gelly Paint in Sugar Plum (£3.99), a vibrant pink-purple.

After lunch we moved on to the Body Shop. I finally got my hands on the new Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser (£16), which I think will be just what my dull, dehydrated skin needs. I couldn't resist a mini and got the Wild Argan Oil Hand Cream (£3.50) as I love that scent. There was a 3 for 2 on makeup and I really wanted to try some from the Body Shop so picked up a great everyday shade in the All-in-One Cheek Colour in 09 Truffle (£8), the stunning-looking shimmer Colour Crush Eyeshadow in 260 Golden Cinnamon (£7) and finally a natural sheer lip colour, the Colour Crush Lipstick in 335 Hot Date (£10). 

Lastly was a restrained visit to Space NK (it was the end of the day, after all...) where I re-purchased my Holy Grail Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer (£22).

What do you think of the products I chose? If you've tried any of them I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments!

  10. I honestly forgot what you'd purchased so this post was great! haha. Hope you like the bronzer as much as I do, and i'm completely smitten with the NARS concealer now, definitely glad I picked it up! You'll have to let me know how you get on with that brush too, I'm still in two minds as to whether or not to pick it up!

    I had an absolute blast and I can not wait to do it again, although my bank balance is trying to postpone as much as possible!

  13. I really need to try both of the L'Oreal mascaras. I have heard great things about Telescopic in general so it'll be great for me to try this new one too. And this is such a great haul and I look forward to your thoughts on the Kiko bronzer.

  15. I love KIKO - I've just got back from Italy and got some bits from there which I'm already loving. I built a custom palette and with the exchange rate and the price in Euros (which is significantly cheaper anyway) my palette cost around £9! x

  32. What a big haul! #feelingspendy hehe I love the colours of the Barry M quick dry polishes and how fast they dry but wasn't too impressed by the lasting power. Need to try more products from Kiko. They have some beautiful products at the moment. x

  33. I feel like maybe it's a good thing most of the people I shop with aren't as interested in makeup, haha! But such a great haul! Looking forward to hearing about the Kiko lipsticks! I really need to try The Body Shop's Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturizer, it sounds so nice!
