Not Quite A Haul // A Few Little Somethings

Evening lovelies, I thought I'd share some of the great offers I've come across this last week. Everywhere seems to have completely different offers at the moment, I want so much stuff. Everything was picked up while helping with the food shop. If I go I always like to pick up a nail polish? Is anyone else like that? My Morrison's (not the most classy cosmetic haul eyy) seems to have the best nail polish selection in a few of the brands they stock!

I'm fairly new to NYC, but I love their nail polishes! Their glitter polishes are just simply amazing. They double as a top coat and are so strong and glossy! I spotted these gorgeous polishes, both were the only ones in their shades there. I had to pick them up. You really have to see 105, lights camera glitter, in person to benefit from all the glitter in it. It contains the most beautiful blue glitters. Then we have 190, Long Time Lavender, this is a pearly pale pink. It's gorgeous. I highly recommend this. I'm sporting it on my toes at the moment. I don't have the exact price it's between £2-£3. Bargain. You get a lot of product too and the brushes are great.



If you buy certain products in the NYC range you get a free eyeliner, well I made a mistake, I picked up a white eyeliner by mistake, it was in the black section, however I missed the white tip on the end. Idiot me. You do stupid things in a rush. I'll find a use for this. Not too much of a fan of wearing white eyeliner, think it looks a tad stupid. But it'll brighten the inner corner of my eye. I will never wear it on my waterline. It looks so strange. I then picked up the black glitter version, I have similar in MUA, so wanted to try a different brand. My current favourite UD is running out and I don't have a stand near me. I'm trying to find a cheaper alternative and failing. If you have any I should try let me know. These are around £1.50. Super cheap, let alone with this offer.


Lastly, we've all heard about how Lynx were bringing out a can for women. This was on offer for 2 for £5. So the male can for my brother and the women's for me. If it was horrible I said I'd give it to my Mum to try, she normally likes different scents to me. Well it's surprisingly nice and very similar to an impulse spray, if not the exact same. I hate the design on the can for women, I know it's the original Lynx packaging, but it's disgusting. I won't be taking this anywhere with me, I'll keep this at home. The design just isn't girly enough.


I haven't really shopped enough lately, I haven't made it to LUSH, I'll no doubt pick something up soon for Mother's Day and show you all. And as for clothes I don't see a point in buying too much SS stuff yet, it'll just be sat around. 
Request any reviews you like, I'll be sure to do some NOTD's with the polishes.

  13. I've been really wanting to try the girl version of Lynx [or Axe as they call it in the states]. I saw it once in the store but then never again - I think it's going to be a big seller! My eye liner is an NYC one, so good for the price!

  14. i've been wanting to try the nex lynx scent for a while, may get the 2 for £5.oo offer, i'll give my other half the mens version, someone said it smelt of watermelon?

    love the shade of the glitter nail polish,
    I've never used NYC products really, i think i've had a nail polish by them, apparently the blushers meant to be good.

    I always love reading your little hauls :)
