Mini Haul | Beauty

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Lace £2.99 | Pantene Ice Shine Hairspray £2.99 | Aussie Limited Edition Luscious Long Leave-In Conditioner £4.99
Primark Natural Look Lashes £1 | Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer £4.19 | Maybelline Colossal Volum' Express Mascara £7.19 | Soap & Glory Thick & Fast Mascara £10
Recently, Sainsbury's had a 3 for 2 offer across all hair care products, so I decided to pick up some new things to try. Firstly I picked up the Aussie Limited Edition Luscious Long Leave-In Conditioner as my hair has been feeling very dry at the moment, particularly at the ends. I absolutely love Aussie products as they always leave my hair silky smooth. This conditioner has eucalyptus and avocado oil in to "pamper your hair beyond the bounds of decency". It smells great, my hair feels soft after use and it leaves my curls very defined. Next I needed a new dry shampoo and I decided to try the Batiste one in Lace. I've heard some nice things about this product and I think the bottle is very pretty. So far I've been loving this! I've used it quite a lot this week and leaves my hair feeling fresh and smelling lovely. The final hair product was the Pantene Ice Shine hairspray. I used to use about a year ago, but I always change up on hairsprays because I usually buy what's on offer. I really like this hairspray. It's made for fine hair, which is what I have, so is strong but doesn't leave your hair crispy. I also find it sprays nicely, like a fine mist.

The next few beauty items are from a couple of shopping trips. I picked up the Primark Natural false lashes as I needed something to practise putting on eyelashes with and I heard in one of Kate's (dollybowbow) videos that these were pretty good! I also picked up my all time favourite concealer, the Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection in Light 2. This concealer lasts me ages and gives a full and even coverage every time. If you haven't given into the raving posts/ videos and bought this product, I urge you to now! Next up are my two favourite mascaras, Maybelline's Colossal Volum' Express in Black and Soap & Glory's Thick & Fast mascara in Super Jet Black. I can't fault either of these products! They apply so well, give a volumised, full and long lash and also last really well throughout the day.
Love, love, love!

    1. Yeah, except I wouldn't call these natural looking! They would be great for a night out because they're really dramatic. Might try and get a pair of the subtle ones next time :) xx

  6. this is a good little mini haul :) I just ran out of my tropical batiste and this seductive lace one looks quite nice and i really love the design of the packaging! So many raves on the collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer and i really wonder whether it actually lives up to it's hype sometimes, so hopefully you will post a review on it soon :) I am currently using the Maybelline pure cover one and i find that it does its job perfectly, although i do want to try out a new..and possible better one! thanks for sharing what you got with us :) xxx

  22. I have so many Aussie products its crazy. haha I haven't seen the conditioner in the last couple times I've been shopping but I feel as though that's something I need. My hair is just blahhh at the moment. Although I don't know about the eucalyptus...that stuff smells like Vix vapor rub and Noxzema. lol

  30. I bought 3 pairs of Primark lashes thinking I'd throw them out after use, but I only opened up a new pack after 2 months because I lost one eyelash! The ones I got look so natural as well, everyone always thinks they're my own ^-^
