Random Buys!

Tuesday, June 25, 2013
Here is just a couple of random accessories/makeup/footwear buys from the last few weeks - from Primark and Amazon.
1. Primark Studded Pumps (£6/8): I can't remember exactly how much these shoes were - they were either £6 or £8, I think they were £6. They are my sisters are they look like my far more expensive Zara studded pumps/flats. My Zara shoes were about £25 and these are obviously cheaper - they do look very similar from a distance but these Primark ones have studs and sparkly flat embellishments too. 

2. Primark Aztec Printed Snood (£4): I love Primark for their cheap scarves and snoods especially. This one feels quite expensive, it is made from a really soft/smooth/comfy material and it it quite heavy and well made. It falls really nicely and because it is a neutral light grey colour, it goes with a lot of outfits. 

3. Primark RayBan Style Sunglasses (£1): I picked these up because 1. they look great and 2. they were only £1 - how could I not get them?! The lenses/frame is a lot smaller than most primark sunglasses which tend to be massive and just don't look right on me. These are great though - you can see what they look like on, on my OOTD post (link here). 

4. Bourjois Radiance Healthy Mix Foundation (£9.99): I bought this from Amazon UK in the lightest shade '51 light vanilla'. I love Bourjois foundations on the whole - I LOVE their brush on foundation which I can't find anymore. I have only tried this foundation a couple of times and so far I am not impressed - sure it gives good coverage, the shade is great and it doesn't irritate my skin. But for me this foundation is not radiant or glowy or hydrating - I find this emphasises dryness and it doesn't make my skin look hydrated or glowing or radiant which is quite disappointing. Full review will be posted when I have tried it out more.

  5. Great items from Primark! Is that the Healthy Mix Serum foundation, because that's supposed to be better than the original.

    1. Its the new healthy mix radiance foundation and I do like it but I prefer the healthy mix serum foundation - its all a bit confusing, I think Bourjois have done an awful job of naming the new foundations x

    1. They are really nice, the flats are made of a fairly flexible material so they don't rub :) x
