Anyone you knows me knows how addicted to eyeliner I am; I love the stuff and cannot exist without my trusty wing as my homage to eyeliner, to wing or not to wing, demonstrated.
Another haul; Superdrug, Beauty Bay and Primark I know, I said I would be shopping anymore. I have done well to curb the amount I spend on makeup but a few things slipped through the net in what was an absolutely horrendously busy month. I feel like this haul, apart from a few luxury items has been a practical collective shop. This…
It’s trash talking time again. It does not seem to be that long that I did my last empties post but here I am, rummaging through my rubbish again so that I can give you my humble opinion on the products I have used up.
I love you Mum Mother’s Day is very near here in the UK and it is the opportunity to show our appreciation to our wonderful Mums. Being a Mother myself I can now appreciate how hard the job can be at times. My own Mum certainly deserves a lot of love for putting up with…
Why do a collective haul?
The simple reason for this is for productivity reasons. At my current rate of two posts a week I have realised that I do not have the space for as many hauls. The frequency of haul posts is alerting me to the fact that I have a slight shopping obsession.
Who doesn’t love the idea of rummaging through somebody else’s trash? For me, watching empties videos on YouTube is for me much better than haul videos because you get to find out what a product is like as often, just after a haul you will still have that ‘new purchase euphoria’ that can cloud your mind. It sometimes is a measure of a product that after you have finished the whole thing, you still want to use it, and indeed repurchase it while other products you cannot wait to finish because you feel like they are not that good.
I always like reading and watching what other people like using; favourite posts are a great way of finding out about all the good products are. It is so hard to find out what is a genuinely good product and what is hyped up by the beauty community and bigger influencers. I tend to rely on smaller Youtubers and bloggers as, being one myself, I can assure you that I have purchased these products myself and would recommend and repurchase them, my opinion of these is only driven by love for them.
I have been trying to resist the temptation to buy any more eyeshadow, again I feel like I failed miserably at this because I didn’t just buy one eyeshadow palette from Tam Beauty, I bought three. Tam beauty is the collective name for many makeup brands such as Makeup Revolution, Freedom and Makeup Obsession and they are pioneering the market when it comes to good quality makeup that is on trend for a fraction of the price of the higher end brands.
Autumn is a season that many people adore, myself included, it combines so many beautiful things, all in one season. As the days grow shorter and the leaves on the trees start to turn; people get excited for the cosiness that Autumn brings with the rich colours, warm clothing, and comforting food.
I know it wasn’t long since I did my ‘Sugarpill haul’ but I was meeting up with my very dear friend who I used to work with and we decided to take a trip into Manchester for a spot of shopping and lunch, how could I refuse that proposition?
