2 Models Own polishes for £1 each,
2 Rimmel polishes for 50p each,
3 white Primark polishes for 90p each.

Good Old Hand Cream for £1,
Primark Foundation & Contour Stick for £2.50,

Cuticura hand cream for £1.

Patisserie De Bain Sugared Violet Hand & Body Lotion for £1,
2 Primark Bubble Masks for 80p each.

Set of 4 nail buffers for £1 (only 3 in the photo because 1 of the 4 is already in use),
Beautifully Scrumptious Almond Body Butter for £1.

Derma V10 Cocoa and Vanilla Body Butters. These were 80p each.

Then I swung by my local Poundland again and I bought…
2 Models Own polishes for £1 each,
2 more Maybelline lipglosses for £1 each,
2 Miss Sporty lipliners for 50p each,
4 Manhattan nail polishes for 50p each.

I found an amazing pencil case at B&M Bargains (£3.99), and I picked up 2 giant (!) sticker sheets (2 for £1).

I also swung by THE WORKS and bought…
2 Narwhal notebooks for £2 each,
and a Sloth 2019 Calendar for £1.50.

I went to B&M again the other day, and I picked up more stationery.
I bought… a pack of 4 A4 popper wallets (2 different designs) for £1.49,

a pack of 3 A6 lined notebooks for £1.29,

a super pretty sticky notes set for £2.49,

and this sensationally cute A5 Hanazuki notebook for £2.49.

I’m very happy with what I bought. I spent £44.05 in total for all these goodies! By the way, all these amazing products were bought on the high street! And one more thing, there’s Tokidoki stuff at B&M Bargains – I’ve seen backpacks and pencil cases which would also work as cosmetic bags! I’m tempted…

Nail Of The Day – Manhattan Quick Dry 46, Barry M Amethyst Glitter, Primark PS… Marshmallow & Stamping With MoYou London Rebel 07

Hi there! Here’s another mani I did a little while ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Manhatten Quick Dry 46K (dark red base colour, 2 coats, thumbs, index and middle fingers) and Primark PS… Marshmallow (white base, 2 coats, ring fingers, pinkies).

The pretty glitter top coat is Barry M Amethyst Glitter. For the images I used MoYou London‘s Rebel 07 stamping plate and a random black polish.

The mani wasn’t what I had in mind. Whilst the red glitter nails looked great, the black and white nails weren’t my best work. The black polish I stamped with isn’t suitable for stamping, and the images ended up the wrong way around… Whoops!

Ah well, things like these happen sometimes. Onto the next mani! 🙂

Oh, and by the way, if you’d like to order from MoYou London, you can get 10% off if you order through this link.

Primark PS… Shine Bright Purifying Charcoal Bubble Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark‘s PS… Shine Bright Purifying Charcoal Bubble Sheet Mask. This mask with charcoal promises a deep cleanse and brighter skin.

Before you start, you’re supposed to rub the sachet for a few seconds so that all the ingredients will mix. Then simply open the sachet, place the mask on your face, and enjoy the mask bubbling up for 10-15 minutes. After that, just rinse off any residue with warm water. Job done!

How’s the mask? I’ve tried a number of bubble face masks, and this is the one that produced the most bubbles. It was sensational! I also found that this mask was actually cleansing (I can’t say the same about the other bubble masks I’ve tried), and it made my skin look rosey. The effect was short-lived, but I liked how this mask made my skin look and feel.

I will go back to Primark soon, and I hope they still have this mask. I’d love to stock up! Primark‘s PS… Shine Bright Purifying Charcoal Bubble Sheet Mask is available for £1.50.

Primark Charcoal Purifying Peel Off Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Charcoal Purifying Peel Off Face Mask which I picked up at my local Primark.

This mask promises to lift off dirt and impurities. It works like any other peel off mask. Apply the liquid to your face, let it dry for about 15-20 minutes, then peel it off.

How’s the mask? I enjoyed using this mask. It was definitely one of the more effective peel off masks that I’ve tried. It made my face look and feel squeaky clean.

This Charcoal Purifying Peel Off Face Mask is available as 10ml for 80p at Primark. I’ll pick up a few more masks for sure!

Nail Of The Day – Primark PS… Marshmallow & Stamping With Pueen 114

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did recently. And it’s another Halloween-inspired mani. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… Marshmallow (2 coats). I like this polish. It’s opaque in 2 easy coats, and it was 90p. Thanks, Primark!

I used Pueen‘s 114 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection) and Manhattan Quick Dry 46K for the images. I did another mani with this stamping recently, and my blogging buddy Helen from Brokedown Vanity thought the image would be perfect for Halloween. I don’t think she had this kind of mani  in mind, but when she mentioned Halloween, I thought “OMG, yes”. 🙂

I do like this mani because it reminds me very much of Dexter. I did smudge a few bits, but all in all, I think this is another mani I’m happy to file under Halloween Nail Ideas.

Primark PS… Foaming Bubble Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark’s PS… Foamig Bubble Mask.

This face mask promises to give skin a deep clean to remove grease and grime. You’re supposed to apply the mask, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, and then simply wash it off.

Is this mask any good? It’s OK, I think.

The mask is plain white. It’s creamy, but within seconds of it touching the skin, it starts to bubble up. It’s awesome fun!

However, I don’t think that the mask was particularly cleansing. Based on my experience, I’d say the mask didn’t do anything at all for my skin. Whilst it was fun to use, it was actually useless.

My husband enjoyed using the mask – but this was solely because of its novelty. However, we had a great time taking photos of each other with the bubble mask on. 😀

Primark’s PS… Foamig Bubble Mask is made in Korea, and it’s 80p at Primark!

Primark PS… Brightening Rinse Off Mask Black Diamond

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark’s PS… Brightening Rinse Off Mask Black Diamond. This is a clay mask that contains exfoliating particles and promises to brighten skin tone. You’re supposed to apply the mask, let it dry for 15-20 minutes, then rinse it off – done! Sounds easy! But does the mask work?

I got 3 uses out of this sachet, so I’m satisfied I reached the right conclusion which is… this mask is useless. It doesn’t feel cleansing, it doesn’t have any brightening effect at all, and the small exfoliating particles are really sharp. Ouch!

If you’re interested, Primark’s PS… Brightening Rinse Off Mask Black Diamond is available as 15ml for 80p. But I wouldn’t recommend this face mask at all.
