NEW! Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil

Eyebrows are big business these days and I definitely think they make a huge difference to your face. I can't believe there was a time I never used to bother! I do have one problem and that is that I'm not that great at doing them. Nor do I have a lot of time to dedicate to doing them. I recently picked up Elle Magazine (£4.10) who are currently offering their readers a sample of the new Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil. The magazine is rubbish (about 90% full page ads!) but the sample is a decent size (0.11g - full size 0.34g) and being a sucker for something new I decided to give it go.

I have to say I was a little skeptical when I first looked at it because I couldn't see how it was different to any regular pencil and how it could be "Goof Proof" but on closer inspection I saw it had a unusual, diamond shape nib (see pic below). The product claims that it "features a custom, non-sharpen “goof-proof” tip, soft colour and a glide-on formula for easy and fast brow filling." I definitely agree with this statement as I filled my eyebrows in for the first time and they looked great! All in about 2 minutes. I've used it a few times now and it's the same result every time and might I add I haven't had them shaped or tinted in a good while either! 
There's a downside though, to go out and buy a full sized, full priced one it's gonna set you back £18.50. I just don't currently have that kind of cash to throw at an eyebrow pencil but hey, if you do go for it!

Available HERE for £18.50
Also "free" sample inside Elle Magazine (£4.10) available in newsagents, supermarkets etc.

Primark Haul!

It was my birthday recently and I got a Primark voucher, I've never actually done a haul on here before so I thought I'd show you what I got!

Ripped Skinny Jeans £15

I've wanted some ripped jeans for so long but alas being so small (I'm only 5ft 1.5, the .5 makes all the difference!) and being built like a shetland pony (short and sturdy) makes it difficult for me to buy jeans. Especially skinny ones! I usually can't get my chunky calves into skinny jeans and if I do manage that then they're a mile too long so I was so pleased these fit!

Collared Long-sleeved Tops (pink and grey) £10 each

I liked these so much I ended up with two! I wanted something I can throw on quickly, would look nice like I may have actually made an effort, and be floaty enough so I wouldn't have to worry about the ol' mummy tummy! My expectations were high but I think I cracked it with these! I love the collars and the blousey material poking out underneath.

Black Jeggings £6

I live in black jeans and leggings so the best of both worlds here. I have shed some of my baby weight and my old jeans keep falling down, not a good look! I've never found leggings that aren't see through so these are a definite solution for me!

Tassel Shorts £3  

I love tassels! The weather has been so nice here in the UK for a change I thought these would be nice to doss about at home or in the garden while the weather is nice (although it is actually raining as I write this!). 

Ice cream T-Shirt £5

My wardrobe is so lacking in colour when my mum showed me this T-shirt I could almost feel my eyes water. It's the colour injection I so desperately need!

Candy Stripe Bedding £11, Pillowcases £1.80, Sheet £5.80

My current bedding is looking pretty dull and tired (...hehe tired, get it?) so I thought it's time for some new sheets. The pastel colours are nice for summer and also inject some colour in my magnolia bedroom!

Long-Sleeved Lace Top £5

I'm loving the whole lace thing, this is another top I can just chuck on but look nice as well. 

Feline Sunglasses £2

Probably not the best shaped glasses for my face shape but I'm a sucker for cat eye shaped sunnies. 

Hope you enjoyed my first haul!

Have you been to Primark recently?
