Haul #1 ¦ The Accidental Haul!


Hello Bumbletons!

This evening I popped into Boots intending to pick up some face wipes.. and left with about £45 worth of goodies, oops! On the plus side, they were mostly things I had on my ‘wishlist’ to buy after hearing rave reviews from other bloggers and had some Christmas money to treat myself with.. so here’s what I hauled:


1 . No.7. ‘Beautiful Skin’ Makeup remover wipes – These are £7.00 for a pack of 30, so I feel these are a real treat to buy, however they were on offer “3 for 2”, so effectively worked out at about £4.60 a pack. I have heard rave reviews about these and after using a couple at a friend’s house recently decided to pick some up.


2.  Rimmel ‘Metal Rush’ nail polish in shade ‘No.100 Pearly Queen’ – Oh my goodness I loved the whole set of these Metal Rush polishes and had to use a great deal of self restraint to stop myself buying all four shades. £3,99 a bottle, can’t wait to try this!

3. Collection (previously Collection 2000) ‘2in1 basecoat’ and ‘2in1 topcoat’ nail polishes – I had to throw out my previous base and top coats last week as they were ridiculously old and gunky, yuck!! £2.99 each.

4. Real Techniques Blush Brush – I treated myself to the R.T. powder brush a couple of weeks ago and LOVE it – so I used a bit of my Christmas money to buy the blusher brush today. Is it a little bit lame that I can’t wait to put my makeup on tomorrow morning and try it out? At £9.99 some might say its a bit overpriced but if it’s anything like the powder brush it will be well worth it. Review to come soon!

5. Collection 2000 ‘Shimmer Shades’ contouring quad – I saw this used by one of my favourite YouTube beauty gurus, Louise from Sprinkle of Glitter (in THIS video, in which she shows her daily makeup routine). I currently use a really old bronzer and some shimmery eyeshadow (I know, shudder!!) to do my contouring/highlighting so thought this looked like a fab product, especially at £4.19!


6. Collection 2000 ‘Lasting Perfection’ concealer – Again, I saw this reviewed online and thought I would give it a try. I paid £4.19 for this too.

7. Rimmel ‘Scandaleyes’ waterproof eyeliner in Nude – Some mornings I am up at 5am for work and no amount of sleep prevents me having red rimmed eyes.. So after seeing Sasha over at Ramblings of a Beauty Bird review it (HERE), I thought I’d pick one up. At £3.99 it wasn’t too pricey!

I am so excited to try out my new treats – Collection 2000 seems to have some really good items at the moment, it’s quickly becoming a staple favourite for basic bits and pieces.

What brands are you finding hard to resist at the moment?

Ciao for now!

  1. Great haul! Thank you so much for the link 🙂
    The eyeliner, RT brush and Collection concealer are all great products! I love the No7 wipes too but only usually buy them if Boots are doing the No7 vouchers xx
