Belfast Haul

It's been a while since I've posted a good ol' haul so I thought this would be a good opportunity to show you guys the goodies I got in Belfast!

I ended up buying a couple of outfits and cute bits and bobs in Primark and New Look, a lot of items in Boots and a couple of things in Debenhams.

I'll start off with hair and makeup:

Treseme Keratin Smooth 7 Day Smooth System - This is a shampoo, conditioner and heat activated treatment that claims to smooth your hair and leave it straight even through 4 washes. I did try this out once whist in Belfast and I've got to say, I was rather disappointed. Now, if you live in Ireland or the UK, you'll know we've been experiencing some extreme heat and humidity. I washed my hair before bed, blow dried and straightened it, went to sleep, sweated out my body weight and woke up with curly hair. I think the fact that my hair was actually wet from sweating (ew, I know) is what made it curl. Now that I'm home and the weather is calming down, I'm going to try this out for a couple of weeks and get back to you guys with a full review.

Real Techniques Starter Set - I love Real Techniques brushes and I've really been wanting to try the eye brushes out. I didn't want to spend nealy €30 or £25 so when I saw these in TK Maxx for £14.99, I ninja moved my way through the crowd and swiped them up.

Real Techniques Blush Brush - I've been loving this for applying my setting powder, it gives a completely flawless finish.

Schwarzkopf Got2B Guardian Angel - This is a heat protection spray that according to staff in my local Boots, doesn't exist. I decided I best buy it while in Imaginary Product Land.

Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover for Hands and Feet  - This polish remover makes it so quick to take off your nail polish and now you can use it on your toes too because of the new sponge attached to the lid!

Urban Decay All Nighter Spray - This is the first setting spray I've ever tried and I love it. It literally kept my makeup on from 9am to 11pm even in suffocating heat.

Urban Decay Triple Threat Travel Set - For only £10 I couldn't pass up this mini set of 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils.

The Body Shop Camomile Cleanser - This solid cleansing balm is amazing for taking off makeup in less than 5 minutes, review coming soon.

Dehydrated Konjiac Sponge - I ran into Superdrug to get a facecloth and saw these hanging up for £1.95 or so, I've been wanting to try a Konjiac sponge out for ages so I ended up picking it up.

Barry M Gelly Polish in Pink Punch - A beautiful bright pink high shine polish, I've had it on since I got it!

Barry M Limited Edition Nail Paint in Bikini - A blue toned lilac shade, like a dark version of Blueberry.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Frambourjoise - I'm obsessed with both of these. Frambourjoise is a very pinky red. It gives the effect of a bold red lip without the commitment.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Olé Flamingo! - This is a vibrant deep pink shade and I can't get enough of it.

Maybelline Master Smoky Shadow Pencil - This is a black crayon pencil on one end and a sponge on the other, I've been loving it to do subtle upper liner and it only takes a couple of minutes.

Next up is clothes:

skort detail

Black Crocet Gilet - £10 down to £3
Black Cami - £3
Skort - £10
All from Primark

New Look Smock - £25 down to £10
This is technically meant to be a fitted dress but I got this from the plus size section so it's far too big and sits perfectly like a smock.

Primark My Little Pony Jumper  - £10 down to £5

A few little cute bits and bobs from Primark:

Makeup bag - £3
Owl Socks - £2
Owl Drinker - £2
Polka Dot Drinker* - £5.99
3 Owl Nail Files - £1
Set of 9 Earrings - £1.50
Set of 3 Necklaces - £3
Fox Phone Case - £3
*from New Look

I hope you enjoyed this rather long post! Let me know if you have any of the things I picked up :)
Thanks for reading 


  1. Love the fox phonecase! (I have a fox obsession) Is it only for iPhone?

    1. I love foxes too, had to pick it up! :) I only saw them for iPhone, I'm pretty sure Primark/Penneys only do covers for i devices. xo

    1. Thank you! I'm so pleased with what I got, they're technically my birthday presents from my grandma haha. X

  3. So many fabulous items! The fox case is adorable and I'd love to try those Bourjois lip products!

    1. Thank you! :) I love it because it reminds me of my dog (she looks a bit like a fox haha). I've been loving Olé Flamingo! It's amazing, they can be a bit drying though. The L'oreal GlamMattes are the exact same thing but non drying :) xxxx

  4. Oh wow you bought lots!! Love a good haul!
    Im interested to see how you get on with the Tresemme Keratin products!!
    And you've reminded me that Ive ran out of Bourjois Magic nail polish remover & need to get some more!! ;)
