House Of Fraser Haul

So make up in Ireland is much more expensive for some reason than everywhere else I have wanted to try Mac Studio Fix Fluid for ages but its expensive its €33 and the mac website don't deliver to Ireland where it only costs £19.50 which works out at approx €23 thats €10 in the difference!!  So i was delighted to discover that House of Fraser started selling Mac on their online store and have the Studio Fix Fluid for £19.50!! The delivery charge to Ireland is £3.95 or Free if you spend over £50, I needed a few things so decided to get them here also saving money so here is what i bought.



Benefit Tan About Town £9.00
This has 3 mini Benefit products for £9.00 very good idea for those who are unsure and don't want to pay full price. The Set includes a mini Some Kinda Gorgeous in Medium, Hoola Bronzer and BADgal Lash Mascara.  I've only really used the masacara and I love it one the best i've ever use give nice long voluminous lashes its lasting me ages as well.  I haven't really tried the other 2 that much I have a thing bout bronzer I just can't seem to use it right so if anyone has any tips for me i'd be greatful :) Unfortunately this item doesn't seem to be available anymore hopefully they bring it back.





I put these next to a 20cent coin to give you an idea of the size.  Sorry for the lack of swatches in this post i can't seem to take pics properly of them they wouldn't turn out right. :(




 Mac Studio Fix Fluid NW25 £19.50
This is the best foundation ever! Gives great coverage why have I not used this before!!  I had to buy the pump seperate this cost €4.00 in Brown Thomas it not too bad considering i won't need to buy another one.  This stays on for nearly the whole day its is so so good!!






Benefit Posietint £24.50
I originally got a sample of this free with Glamour magazine a while back which made me decide to buy the full size. I love this stuff the colour is like a nice baby pink which i love it comes on a brush kinda like nail varnish you give it 3 strokes across your cheek but you gotta work with it fast as it is called a cheek stain and that is what it will do if u don't rub it in quick enough you can also use this on your lips.  The sample size lasted me ages so I'm sure this should last a very long time.





Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Original £14.50
This is the best thing ever your eyeshadow will not budge with this.  I got a small one of these with an eye palette I had never used eyeshadow primer before and I will never go back to never using one! This now comes in a tube which is much better as i have seen alot of people complaining that you couldn't get it out when you got towards the end in the old packaging even though there was still a nice bit left leaving people with no choice but to break it open so its great that Urban Decay have listened to feedback and changed it to a tube! 






I also have to praise House of Fraser on their delivery got an email the next day after ordering to say it had been despatched then at 12 that nite got another email to say it was leaving birmingham and at 12 the next day my stuff arrives!

Lush Goodies!


I was in Dublin recently and was mad to go into a Lush store i've never been in one don't have any were i live there is only 5 Stores in Ireland 2 in Dublin, Cork, Belfast and Newry. Its such a lovely shop I was trying to be quick so I only bought 2 items.  However I did make a big order online a few days later which i will post about here soon received them today! Aren't the bags lovely? :)

Here is a Lil Lush Pud Bath Bomb smells so christmassy bubbles up nicely and leaves you smelling of xmas!! It only cost €2.45/£1.95 which is fairly average price for bath bombs!
You can buy this here:  https://www.lush.co.uk/product/5679/Lil-Lush-Pud-Bath-Bomb






I also bought Big Shampoo in my opinion best shampoo i have ever used my hair gets quite greasy i usually wash it ever second day but with this shampoo I can leave it an extra day when I'm not in the mood to wash it.  It leaves your hair literally squeaky clean i mean you can hear the squeak!  There's sea salt in it so it feels like your are putting a scrub in your hair but you get used to it you only need to use a small bit so it should last quite a while.  This costs £10.95 think it was around €14-15 but well worth it I will be buying this again for sure! I forgot to take a photo of this so I will get one up for you later.  Also I noticed on the tub it says bring back 5 clean empty tubs and get a free face mask!  The tubs can be anything from the Lush range as far as I know.  You can buy this here:  https://www.lush.co.uk/product/50/Big-Shampoo


www.lush.com  you can buy online from their website here or find your nearest store!

The Body Shop Bath Bombs

I haven't been to The Body Shop in ages but as a Meteor customer they have been doing Meteor Goodie Bag offers and there is one for 15% off you need to sign up for this you have the option to print off the voucher or get a text sent to you this is very handy as all you need to do is just show the tet each time rather than print off the voucher all the time!  They have an offer on their bath bombs 3 for €10 but I also got 15% discount on these great bargin! I've always wanted to try these so here's what I picked out!

I used the top one first when i dropped this into the bath it fizzed up loads it smelt lovely can't quite put my finger on what it smells like but it just smelt really nice and fresh it wasn't overpowering.

I used the cupcake one next I managed to get 2 baths out of this one it didn't fully fizz but enough for the bath! This smelt pretty much the same as the first one.

Finally I used the Glitter one, I was expecting to come out covered in glitter but thankfully i didn't the bath did however haha this also smelt the same as the previous 2.  I would defo buy these again they have a nice selection of these and some of them did smell different I just happened to pick up similar ones! Hope you liked this review its my first post so i'm not fully sure if i'm going about this the right way!!
