Mini Forever21, Lush and Boots Haul!

Hey guys! So yesterday I went to town with my friends for a bit of retail therapy and I picked up a few things that I thought I would show to you.

Forever 21:

I had a voucher for Forever 21 so I got these gorgeous pumpkin colored lace shorts in the sale section for only €13.99! I have been on the hunt for a pair of lace shorts ever since I saw MacBarbie07's video on how to wear them! These shorts fit perfectly and I know that I will get a lot of wear out of them.

Every sale item in F21 is Buy One Get One Free at the moment but I didn't really see anything I liked. I spotted this amazing pair of high waisted denim cut-offs that looked vintage and just as I walked towards them to pick them up, another girl picked them up and walked over to the cash register! :( So in the end I settled for this cute orange t-shirt that has some rips on it. This is so cute paired with cuffed jeans and wedges! It would have only cost €7.99 but I got it for free of course!

I also got a couple of pairs of earrings. I got these really pretty gold leopards and in the same pack I got black jewel earrings which I love. That pack cost €3.90. I also got a pair of gold crystal cross studs which cost €1.90.


I love Lush so much! If the smell of the shop alone isn't good enough for you, the products are amazing and are all natural too. I was looking for a solid shampoo after I read a review about the shampoo bars on Leanne Woodfull's blog. She raved about the Seanik bar which has sea salt in it to amp up volume in your hair and the lady in the shop also recommended it for dry hair. I am going to test run this tonight so hopefully I will like the results! The Seanik bar cost €7.90 and they are equal to 3 bottles of shampoo, so bargain! hah :)

I also bought the Jungle solid conditioner, also recommended for dry hair. For €3.95, this bar is meant to revive your dry hair and it's full of fruit which will restore nutrients in your hair. Let me know if you would like to see a review on the Lush products when I have used them for a while!


I had read a review about the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains on Fleur De Force's website and they sounded amazing! They are a dupe of Clinique's Chubby Sticks but with the added bonus of the Revlon Balms being a stain too. I got the stain in Lovestruck, a hot pink color that Emma Stone wears in the ad campaign. They were on an introductory offer and cost €8.20 but will cost €11.20 in the future. The stain lasts for ages and it smells lovely and minty!

Swatch is the outermost swatch on the left!

I availed of the 3 for 2 offer on Maybelline products and I purchased a Color Tattoo eyeshadow in Permanent Taupe, a matte medium toned brown(€7.49), A Popstick in Citrus Slice(€10.89), which bizarrely comes up pink on the lips!, and a Master Drama Kohl Eyeliner in Black( around €6). This is most pigmented liner I have ever seen, it feels almost like a gel and it doesn't smudge at all. You barely have to touch the pencil off your eye for color payoff!

Swatch is the outermost swatch on the left... why is it pink?? haha I still like it though!

THE most pigmented eyeliner ever!

NYX Jumbo Pencils...

Hey guys!

 Today I thought I would do a quick review for you. I recently bought a new NYX Jumbo Pencil and I love them so much that I thought I would share my thoughts on them. The 2 NYXJPs I have are in Milk and Cottage Cheese.

Milk is probably the most well known of the pencils. It is a vibrant creamy white color that can be used for any eyeshadow look. You can't get the pencils in Ireland so my sister bought me the pencil in Milk for my birthday off of Ebay last year. (Click here for a link to a NYX Jumbo Pencil on Ebay!) I love it and I have used it so much!

On bottom- Milk direct swatch
The texture of the pencils are lovely. They are really creamy and soft and they have an almost slightly sticky feel that help eyeshadows adhere to the eyelid. What I love about the Milk is how it makes eyeshadows that may not be very pigmented become much more vibrant. It makes you get more bang for your buck as my mom says haha :)

I bought my second pencil in Lanzarote. It's in the shade Cottage Cheese. It is a lovely color that is a white as well but has a pearly finish as opposed to the matte finish of Milk. CC is not as sticky as Milk so although you could still put another color on top, I think Milk is better as a base. Cottage Cheese is really pretty all over the lid with a medium toned brown in the crease.

That's my mini review on the NYX Jumbo Pencils! I hope you enjoyed and if you want to make the pictures bigger, just click on them! Please leave any video requests or blog requests in the comment section! :)

Enjoy xoxo
