Primark PS...Pro Blending Brush - Artis Dupe?

Primark Oval Blending Brush Artis Dupe
 
We have seen a lot of blog posts recently showing various 'dupes' for the Artis Oval Blending Brushes. The Artis brushes range in price from £28 for the smallest to £60 for the large foundation style brush. We have been intrigued by the Artis brushes but have not yet been tempted to invest in them due to the large price tag! When we spotted these recently released oval brushes in Primark we were very excited and threw a couple each into our basket without a second thought. The Primark version come in three sizes (we were only able to get our hands on two) and range in price from £2.50 to £4.00 (yes, really!)

CoverGirl Katy Kat Matte Review and Swatches


CoverGirl Katy Kat Matte Review and Swatches

Having long been a fan of CoverGirl Cosmetics we were looking forward to getting our hands on their new collaboration with Katy Perry while we were in the USA last month. CoverGirl are one of our favourite drugstore beauty brands and its such a shame that they are not available in the UK however when we are in the US we always raid the shelves for some new additions to their range.

L'Oreal Cushion Foundation - Review

L'Oreal Cushion Foundation - Review

We heard of the new L'Oreal Cushion Foundation some time ago when was not available to purchase in the UK. Needless to say we really wanted to try it so on our recent trip to the USA it was one of the first things we picked up. When we returned to the UK the product had launched and the range also included a bronzer that had not been available when we were in the USA!

Tarte Tartlette in Bloom Palette

Tarte Tartlette in Bloom Palette
Lets be honest, I need another eyeshadow palette like a hole in the head but when Fleur de Force showed the Tartelette in Bloom clay eyeshadow palette (£32.40 QVCUK.com) in her April favourites I was sold! Once we got to Orlando and hit Sepohora it was one of the first things I wanted to seek out. Unfortunately for my bank account it was as beautiful in person as it was online and it 'fell' into my basket!

Primark Haul May/June 2016

Recently we were shopping at our favourite mall, Intu Metrocentre and we couldn't resist popping into Primark to see if they had anything new since our last visit. The Metrocentre store is undergoing something of a makeover right now. They have taken over some space next door and are expanding. Its already a pretty big store covering 2 floors so it is going to be huge! How exciting for all of us North East based Primark addicts!

We both picked up a few things and wanted to share them with you. After all, who doesn't love a Primark haul! Here is what we picked up and who bought them!

Marble Clutchbag - Mimi
As we were browsing the bags Elle found this beautiful and so much cheaper than it looks marble clutch bag! It was literally the last one in the whole store! It is so pretty and versitile and I can see it being well used over the summer months. I already have it put aside to complete the outfit I plan to wear to my cousins engagement party next week.

Cabana Bay Beach Resort Review - Universal Orlando

Cabana Bay Beach Resort Review

We were recently looking for somewhere to stay during our trip to Orlando in May and as usual we researched many hotels in the planning process. We eventually chose Cabana Bay Beach Resort as we loved the look of the themeing and because it is an on-site Universal Hotel it is incredibly close to the Universal Orlando parks. We really liked the idea of being able to walk or take the courtesy bus to the parks and to Universal Citywalk and leave the car at home!
