Beauty Haul


Beauty Haul

Hi Everyone,

Here’s a quick haul post for you all

1) Remmington Keratin Therapy Brush – I’ve used paddle brushes for years, they are perfect for my long locks. I’ve had my latest one for so long I couldn’t even guess how many years it’s been.  Anyway, my old faithful gave up on me a couple of days ago… the handle fell off so I thought it was about time I invested in a new one! I chose the Remmington Keratin Therapy Brush.  According to the packaging this brush has Keratin therapy (something I haven’t heard of before) for strong healthy looking hair, bristles which speed drying time and a soft grip handle for comfortable styling.

2) Apocolips – These lip lacquers my Rimmel are all over the blogosphere (are you bored of reading reviews on them yet?!) but I’ve finally got my hands on some – Nova and Apocolypic.  I’ll be joining the band wagon and will be doing a review on them once i’ve tested them out.

3) VO5 shampoo and conditioner – I’m always trying out new shampoo’s and conditioner’s as my hair seems to get ‘bored’ of them and ends up either going very flat or very frizzy in protest.  The two which caught my eye this time where ‘Give me Moisture’ by VO5.  They have an amazing array of oils packed into them and the packaging of the shampoo is pink / white with a pink shimmer… do I need say any more?!

4) Nivea deodrant – Nothing too interesting to say here.. This is just a Nivea dry confidence roll on deodrant.

5) Hairbands – I seem to go through these hairbands like no tomorrow.  I don’t know where they all go but I’m forever losing them around the house.  These ones by Scunci are great as they are super stretchy and are damage free as they have no metal to catch your hair.

6) Rimmel Eyebrow pencil – I’m on the hunt to find the perfect colour to fill in my brows.  I want a really natural look so thought I’d give this Rimmel one a go. I have got the darker version /(black/brown) which I’ve been impressed with but the colour isn’t quite right for my brows so hopefully this one which is a shade lighter (dark brown) will be better… time will tell.

7) Vitamins – My immune system is awful and I’m always coming down with something so I thought I’d try to give my self a boost. I’ve invested in some standard multi-vitamins and also cod liver oils.  I really hope these help as I’m getting really fed up of feeling under the weather so often!

8) MUA Undressed Palette – This palette looks really similar to the original Naked palette which I love but is significantly cheaper.  I was tempted by this one because I wanted a cheaper alternative so I don’t always have to use all my expensive shadows on a day to day basis.  Sometimes for work I just want a really natural look but don’t necessarily want to use my high end stuff (I’m scared it’s going to I’m going to hit pan too quickly!). I thought this palette would do the trick.

9) Carmex – My lips aren’t too dry and chapped but as the weather had turned really cold again (we had snow yesterday!) I thought it wouldn’t do any harm to get applying some Carmex.  This one is original flavour.

I bought all of these items from Boots and Superdrug.

What is your latest purchase? Or if you’re on a spending ban, what is top of your wish list?

    Love V05 conditioner! You'll have to do a review on the Undressed palette, I would be interested as I don't want to use up my 'Naked's' either xx

    I've heard that this MUA palette could be a perfect dupe of the Naked one, I'd love to see you review it!Xx

    I would love a review on the MUA palette as I couldn't find it in my local Superdrug !! <3
    Great haul you got some great things!! <3

    great post 🙂 do you think the MUA palette is a good dupe of the Naked Palette? I really want to get the Naked Palette but I can't allow myself to spend that much at the moment haha, may have to try this instead 🙂


  10. Kimberley
    February 9, 2013 / 6:55 pm

    Thanks 🙂

    Yes, i'd say the colours are very similar to the original Naked Palette and it's a very good dupe.

    I had a quick swatch of the colours today and the pigmentation seems pretty good, but I need to have a proper try to make sure (i'm going to do a look using it tomorrow).

    I'm going to do a review post of MUA palette and will also do swatches of the Naked palette to show how similar they are! I'll try and get that up within the next week (most probably next weekend as it's dark by the time I get in from work so the lighting for the pictures will be rubbish!).

    Hey thanks for looking and commenting on my blog 🙂
    I love reading haul posts at the minute especially because I'm too poor to buy anything for myself at the minute. Its like I'm living vicariously through other bloggers but also makes me quite jealous haha 🙂

    February 9, 2013 / 7:00 pm

    Awww thank you for your lovely comment.

    The colours in the palette are really gorgeous! They are mostly shimmery shades (9) and the other 3 are matte. I can't wait to use them. I'll be putting up a post within the next week with swatches if you want a closer look!

    I'm really glad you like the photo's and posts on my blog, that means a lot!

    Thank you for the follow, i'll definitely check out your blog! 🙂

    I'll definitely do a review on the MUA palette! I aim to get swatches up next week and maybe a review. I usually like to spend a good few weeks reviewing a product but with shadows it's pretty obvious if you like them or not!

    I used Carmex for a long time but then found out it had some nasty chemicals in it 🙁

    I love rimmington hair products so hopefully they make that for the US and I can try it out. Do you think you could do a review on it?

  25. Kimberley

    Thanks for your comment. I can definitely do a review on the Vo5 shampoo and conditioners once i've given them a good try! Keep an eye out for it 🙂

    Rimmel products are on 3 for 2 at boots at the moment so it's a good time to pick up some if you are looking to get more than one and have access to that shop.

    I've read a little about Carmex having bad chemicals in it and from what i've seen it depends on where you live as the formulation is different. In Europe they don't allow one of the chemicals in cosmetics so it is removed. I don't know if that means it's safer for you to use or not, though..

    Fingers crossed Remmington will release the brush in the US so you can try it! I can definitely do a review on it for you 🙂 Keep an eye out for it over the coming weeks.

    Great haul! I purchased this MUA eyeshadow palette last month and I'm still waiting for it to arrive, I can't wait though. The Remington paddle brush looks really nice, I want to splurge on a really nice hair brush too 🙂 The Apocalips haven't been released in Australia yet but I really want to try them!
