What I Bought This Week #11

Well hello there!  It has been a bit of a while since I sat down and began writing a new post, it kind of feels like I’m starting from scratch.  I decided to take a break from blogging for a while as there was a lot of stuff going on, mainly a much-increased work load, and I was coming home in the evening feeling so tired that blogging was the last thing I wanted to do.  The blogging challenge I had a go at (#blogyoursocksoffseptember) was a great idea and I stuck to it forrrrrrr a fair old part of the month (!) but sadly life got in the way and my daily posts soon became every other day, and eventually none at all.  I am really annoyed at myself, because I was really enjoying it but then the pressure of planning posts every single day started to take the enjoyment out of it for me.  Apparently working full time and blogging daily was a bit too ambitious for me, but after a much needed break I’m excited to get going again and blog purely when I really want to!  That was a bit of a ramble, I started typing and it just kept coming!  I do apologise!
In other news, notable goings on in my life have included a night out that resulted in an impromptu trip to the fair (I don’t recommend the dodgems – my neck hurt for THREE DAYS after that), a standard trip to Thorpe Park, a random but fun Sunday night party in the work canteen of all places (as if we don’t already spend enough time there, but there was a good reason), and a whole lot of shopping.  Not the most amazingly exciting of things, but they keep me more than happy :)! 
SO, on to the make up products I have been buying lately.  As you can see, they are mainly products that have already been doing the rounds in blog land, and I just couldn’t resist trying them out for myself!  I am most excited to try out the Origins Clear Improvement mask, I have seen some of my favourite bloggers rave about it, and my skin is in desperate need of some sorting out right now so I hope that this is the product for the job.  As always, when ordering from the Origins website, I was able to choose a whole load of little samples as well which I think is really nice, and makes parting with more cash than I’d like a bit more bearable!  I could no longer ignore the hype surrounding these Maybelline 24hr Colour Tattoo eye shadows, I was put off buying them in the past because I was worried that they would give me those horrible creases that you get on your eyelid from cream shadows.  The No.7 moisturiser is what I bought using a Boots voucher, I have used it before and it was really good for my combination skin.  I have run out of primer so I thought that now would be a good time to try something new, I never buy any make up from Seventeen so I thought that their new primer should be given a chance! 
Full reviews of these products will follow soon, I know you have probably read a fair few reviews of some of these products already but I may as well throw my thoughts out there too!
What have you been buying lately?  Have you tried any of these products? xx


  1. Fab haul, I'm wanting to try the new Bourjois eye shadows that are like the colour tattoo!

  2. That charcoal mask is one of my absolute favorites!

  3. I know exactly what you mean, I had a bit of a break and now I'm feeling all inspired about blogging again! So jealous you went to Thorpe Park, I haven't been for ages and I really wanna go even though I don't go on half the rides (gotta love Fright Night though!) I'm so tempted by that Origins mask, let us know if it works! xxx

  4. I got a sample of the clear improvement mask and it reacted badly to my skin which is gutting because I really wanted to love it!
