Primark and Essence Haul

17:47

So yesterday I went shopping but I was on a really small budget and I wanted to get as much as I could out of my 20 € - so naturally, I went to Primark right away! And here's what I got:

I got this pair of mint sneakers for only 3 €, they're super cute and perfect for Spring :)

I needed some face wipes to take my makeup off at night since I ran out of my old ones (that were only 99 cents) and I found these wipes, that we're 1.50 € for two packages.

And finally I got this foundation brush! It was only 2 € and since I needed one (because I've never used a brush to apply foundation before, I just used my fingers) and I decided to see if I preferred this type of brush or the flat top ones. This one was so cheap that I decided it would let me see what kind of finish this kind of brushes give and, so far, I love it.

I've used it today and it blends really well, although I have to take some time to make sure it doesn't leave any lines. I also use the smaller brush for my concealer or just to give touches on places that are harder to reach with the big brush.

So, in total, I spent 6.50 € in Primark and I think it was money well spent. Since I still had 13.50 € left, I naturally went to my favourite drugstore makeup brand, Essence, that has the cheapest products here in Portugal, but still with some quality. Here's what I bought:

I bought the Essence Lash and Brow Gel Mascara and I'm only using it for my eyebrows to keep them nice and tidy after I fill them in. I don't remember for sure how much it was but I'm guessing 2.59 €.

Then I bought the Essence Maximum Definition Volume Mascara which is just... amazing. I'm seriously dumbfound at how good it makes my lashes look, they don't get any clumps at all, they get nice and long and I only need to use one coat to get a great effect! It's definitely something I'll start wearing everyday and it was only 3.79 €, I believe, so it's definitely a bargain and a must have!

I also bought the Essence Silky Touch Blush in shade 50 'Sweetheart', which is a gorgeous tanned pink colour that is perfect for everyday since it's so subtle and natural. I wore it today and I absolutely love it, plus it looks good in loads of skin tones, not to mention it was only 2.99 €, I think.

Finally, I bought the Essence Coverstick, in shade 01 'Matt Sand'. I should have bought the shade 06 'Matt Ivory' but sadly they didn't have it so I had to go with this. It's a concealer but in lipstick shape, which I actually prefer over liquid concealers. It's super easy to apply and it does a good job in covering up my blemishes (I used it today and it concealed most of them, except one that was really bad but it did help tone the redness of that one). I don't know if I'll use it much under my eyes considering it's the same tone as my skin and I usually like to use lighter shades to brighten up my eyes but I'll definitely make a good use of it! I'm not sure how much I payed for it but I'm guessing 2.59 €? I'm sure it wasn't over 3.99 €, so it's still a really nice concealer.

And that's the end of my haul! I hope you guys liked it and maybe you can even try some of these out yourself? Also, if you have any posts you'd like to see, please leave a comment down below suggesting it!
