So on Monday I went on a rather unintentional shopping trip with my mum, I did not intend to buy anything but since all my purchases were pretty cheap I don't feel too bad. I know a lot of people dismiss shops like Home Bargains, Poundland and Boyes as being cheap and tacky but honestly if you are from the UK - try them out. You never know what you might find. Anyway on with my purchases...
RIMMEL WAKE ME UP 'Shimmering Sand' (rrp £4.99)
SALLY HANSEN 'Virtual Violet' (rrp £5.99)
DAINTY DOLL EYESHADOW'S 'Copacabana' & 'Jungle' (rrp £11.50)
As you can see I found some pretty decent stuff in Poundland so all that rummaging through the rack was worth it! The Dainty Doll shadows are so pigmented and are something I have been wanting to try for ages, 'Copacabana' is a matte electric blue and 'Jungle' is a shimmery jade green. I really like both colours and I am quite excited to try some bolder looks soon.

GARNIER MAKE-UP REMOVER - £1.99 (rrp £3.99)
ALPHABET MUG - 99p (rrp £6)
GIlLETTE SATIN CARE - £1.99 (£3.49)
SIMPLE CLEANSING LOTION- £1.99 (rrp £2.99)
I was basically just replenishing some beauty supplies here (asides from the mug), I like them all, they work and with such good savings I always repurchase from here.
L'OREAL LIP ROUGE CARESSE 'Aphrodite Starlet' - £2.49 (rrp £7.99)
TECHNIC 'Black Mirror' - 89p (rrp £2.95)
L'OREAL COLOUR RICHE SERUM - £2.40 (rrp £8.19)
Okay so I was actually so amazed to find these L'Oreal lip products in the loose tray of Boyes and at such cheap prices! So I couldn't resist, although my mum did ask if I really needed more lipstick. The answer was yes. The answer is always yes. The Technic glitter paint is just a hexagonal holographic glitter topcoat that looks really pretty with cool toned nail paints.
COLLECTION LASTING PERFECTION CONCEALER - £3.99 (usually £4.19)
So not technically a budget store but Superdrug have got some good deals on make-up at the moment so it made sense to repurchase my favourite concealer ever with a 20p saving.
Okay so that's it for this haul, I have got a collective fashion haul post planned soon featuring Primark, Topshop and eBay so stay tuned for that in a couple of days! As always I hope you are all well and don't forget to follow me on bloglovin here if you haven't already!
