Last-Minute Holiday Haul!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

As you know I’m going on holiday on Monday (will probably be there by the time this is up), so last Wednesday I picked up the last-minute things I needed. So today I’m going to share with you what I picked up…

wpid-20140731_195753.jpgI had run out of my Batiste Dry Shampoo a while back (click here to check-out my product empties post) so I decided to re-buy it. They were half price in Superdrug so I got two different scents; I got the cherry & tropical ones. They smell heavenly.

I know they’ll come in handy on holiday as I know in the heat my hair will probably get greasy very quickly, so yay for Batiste!!


I needed a new shower gel so I went for this Original Source Lemon & Tea Tree one. I’ve had this in the past & it smells lovely. It was also reduced down to 99p so I couldn’t resist!

wpid-20140731_195849.jpgI’ve had my eye on Benefit’s Gimme Brow for a while now, but I just can’t justify spending the money, especially when I’m trying to save the pennies. So whilst in town I spotted Maybelline’s version, their Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara. So I decided to get it in medium brown (this is the middle shade!), I tried it as soon as I got home & so far I’m very impressed (will be writing a review soon!).


So Maybelline had a ‘buy one get the 2nd half price’ deal, so I had to buy a second item. I’ve been looking for a nice wearable purple lipstick & when I saw this one I know I just had to get it. This lipstick is part of Maybelline’s Colour Sensational range, I got it in the shade ‘906’ Hot Plum.

Here’s what the lipstick looks like on…


wpid-20140731_200044.jpgI wasn’t going to buy any more makeup products, that was until I spotted this. How beautiful is it? This is an MUA (Makeup Academy) Mosaic Blush in the shade English Rose. Can you believe this gorgeous product was only £2.50? I love MUA makuep, its brilliant for the price!!

Here are some swatches with & without flash…

Without flash:


As you can see it just leave a pink-y sheen to your skin. I haven’t tried it on my face yet, but I’m sure it looks lovely 🙂


This wouldn’t be a decent haul without any random products. The first is a 2-pin travel adapter, as I’m going abroad I need an adapter to be able to charge my phone, you just plug your phone charger into it & then into the socket abroad. I got this from Boyes for £1.50.

The second random thing is hay-fever & allergy relief tablets, I have only just started to get hay-fever in the past few years! It’s really annoying so I’m taking these as a precaution!

The third is razors, I’ll probably only take one but I was in need of new razors. We don’t want man legs on holiday now, do we girlies?


The last thing I bought were these travel empties (not empty now as I’ve filled them already!). We (me & beautifulbreakable) thought it’d be a good idea to decant shampoo, conditioner & mouthwash into smaller bottles in order to save on weight when packing. We have also decanted some moisturisers & cleansers into the little pots too. These are also handy as the packaging is clear, which is recommended when traveling, so customs can see whats inside.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this haul & maybe got a few ideas on what you can do to make traveling easier. If you’d like to know more about any of these products let me know in the comments below 🙂

Thank you for reading beauties, have a fabulous day! ☼

Lots of Love Natasha ❤
