Sunday Chit Chat: Random Haulages

I don’t just buy make up I don’t need! – I love to buy gifts for people and crafty arty things. Anyway this some random bits I bought this week.

I had a hellish trip to Primark at lunchtime this week. It was awful. The Primark crowd is an unusual one; a mixture of nutters, students, the unemployed* and bizarrely enough, mothers with several children who feel the need to bring their kids to the busiest shop in town and don’t feel the need to tell them off when they roll around the floor, licking up the dirt.

*Perpetually unemployed and unwilling to get a job. I won’t count the ones who have been made redundant..ahem.

I nearly bought some Primark flip flops until I realised in the queue, 10 other women had them too. Nah.

Anyway they are good for some things – I got this cool travel bottle kit -inside was 3 bottles, 3 plastic pots, the clear bag and a funnel AND preprinted stickers…for £1 !!!! Amazing.

I also got a big comfy headband for when I wash my face for £1.47:

Primark has a new rather cool looking make up range but I knew I would only spend £10 on random bits that I would swatch once and never use again.

My cousin is forever drawing on herself which irritates the hell out of me – she’s 14 you see and in love with Kat Von D. I bought her this kit:

The pens are body safe and wash off with some soap. I decided it would be better for her than a combination of tippex and sharpie.

My current make up bag may be Chanel but it has holes in the design meaning my pencils always roll out. I got this ZPM kitten make up bag for £10, and its zipped – hurrah!

    The tattoo pens are a really cute idea, I would have loved them when I was a teen.

    I have to admit, I’ve been dying to talk about my recent buys, but my friends and family don’t get excited about make-up at all. 😛
    I got this really pretty lipgloss: Bourjois 3D max in cassis pétillant. The colour is so flattering, I’m not too keen on the strange plastic applicator, but it’s usable.
    And even better: I snagged a Givenchy Prismissime eyeshadow palette on ebay, the #53 arty (I think it was a LE). Amazing colours.
