Collective Haul

Sorry I've been away for so long!
This is a bit of a months hauls. Even though some items I've mentioned many many times here! :)
I'm not going to do swatches of any products but if you want to see a top on, or see a lipstick on, by all means don't hesitate to ask, if you'd like a review on any product, or swatches I'll do them! Just comment below, email ( or Tweet me (@ABarryMakeup)

I've been bold this month and spent alot!!! I don't even remember what I bought! This is all I remember but there was ALOT more!!

I bought a tiny amount of clothes and a weensy amount of accessories, so here's my clothes:

First off I was at the River Island sale and I got this top. I plan on wearing it with a pencil skirt of some sort. I just thought it was sooo cute and it was a steal, it was €27, reduced to €12.

Then going back a month ago I was in New Look at the sale and got this fabby dress which I am in  love with! It's perfect for summer, and again this was only €12.
To match I got these beautiful wedges in Penneys (Primark). They have browny, dark greyish ones as well and I want to get them too! I got these for €23.

I got some leather jackets in Penneys (Primark) too on sale, Ohh me I'm such a bargain hunter. I got a grey one and a black one. They were down from €23 each to €9.

And here is my Accessories and Nail Polishes.

Now onto my little tiny bit of Topshop accessories shopping in the sale, I love all these, and they were all so cheap. I'm super happy, I was over the moon about the Leaf Necklace because I wanted it before the sale, and was going to buy it about two weeks ago but I don't know why I waited, but I did and it was a bargain from €18.50 before the sale, down to €4.50. Then I got two rings, the first is this cool deer one and it was €8.50 down to the most bargain able price of €1.50. As well as that I got this really classy ring that was €10.50 reduced to €1.50.

I got two Nail Polishes by OPI as well in a little set! I got OPI Ink and You Don't Know Jacques. Both of these I absolutely love! OPI Ink on my toesies, and You Don't Know Jacques on my fingers, is my Summer colours at the moment!

Next is my prized possession, MAKE-UP!!!

Half way through June, I went to Boots, I wanted to get the almighty Maybelline EyeStudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner and they had 3 for 2 so I bought 2 mascaras as well - Maybelline Volum' Express Falsies, I heard so much about so snatched it up! And then I got Maybelline Volum' Express One-by-One, I hadn't heard much but figured it was the new mascara! I am in love with this, I can't rave enough about it! I got some TRESemm√© Dry Shampoo last week, which I am deeply in love with!!!

Next I was in MAC, I got alot here! Spent a small fortune!
I got Eight Lipsticks, Six Eye shadows, Two Blushes, A Paint pot and A Gel Eyeliner.

And included is that is a giveaway I won, I'll start off with that, I won a DGS Beauty Giveaway. Unbelievably shocked! I won a Lipstick, a Blush and a Fluidline (Gel Eye Liner). The Lipstick is from the Viva Glam range in Viva Glam V, which I seriously am loving now because of this. The Blush is Fleur Power, which is a a beautiful pinkish coral. And the Fluidline is in Blacktrack, which is a must have by all beautylovers! Believe it or not, I contemplated buying all these in the past month, lucky I waited, I don't know why I did! I think I bought the Maybelline EyeStudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner instead of the MAC one! These all arrived this week!

A month ago I bought a Lipstick, and two Eye Shadows. The lipstick is Saint Germain, which I've been lusting after for months now. The two eye shadows were Swiss Chocolate and Handwritten. The MUA who did my makeup used both of these with Cranberry, which I own, to create a smokey eye with a sort of red tint through it!

A few days after I went back and I got Two Eye Shadows in Woodwinked, Naked Lunch, A blush in Dollymix and A Bronzer from the Surf Baby Collection in Pressed Powder.

Another few bold days later, I was in town, and I've been to MAC everyday that I've been in town in the past four months! Well on this day I bought Ruby Woo Lipstick, And Two Eye Shadows in Prussian and Aquadisiac!

I wanted a Lipstick from the Surf Baby Collection before it came out, then not so much, now I'm kicking myself I didn't get Hibiscus because when I wanted it, it was out of stock.. But don't worry about me, they got it back online so I ordered it of MAC UK and it should be here next week! Seeing as I couldn't get that, when I was in MAC I swatched Mocha from the same collection. Mocha has to be the most Amazing Lips but Better colour. I was also given some MAC Face Charts because I plan on Making a Face Chart book.

Seeing as I missed Hibiscus, I was making sure I wasn't missing Ever Hip from Fashion Flower Collection, which I had been eyeing up since the collection was announced, and it had gotten the same ravings and everyone wanted it like Hibiscus had, so I was preparing not to miss it! So I snatched it up straight away, I got Gem of Roses from the Semi Precious Collection as well!

I got Vegas Volt from Back to MACing six empty containers; three foundations, a powder, a blus and a mascara. Adding my lipsticks up to Eight from this haul.

Then the day before yesterday I went in and bought Painterly Paintpot.

All pictures are my own.

Thanks, Aislinn
