Feeling Spendy…

I’ve been feeling a little spendy lately. I’m going away in a few weeks and wanted to make sure I had everything I needed. I made a list of all the things I needed and ticked them off one by one. I’ve already done a little clothing haul here, so I’m pretty good to go in the wardrobe department. I was running out of few things in my make up bag and I had a few skin care bits that I needed to pick up before I went away so on the weekend I went to my local shopping centre and went a little bit wild.

In my local shopping centre they have a huge brand new topshop which I couldn’t resist not having a quick look…There we’re so many things I wanted but I was determined not to spend too much money even if the beautiful clothes was calling my name. I ended up getting 2 items in total, One of is a paid of Quay sunglasses. Now I have wanted these sunglasses for a while now but the were £30 and I already had around 5 pairs but when I tried them on I knew I had to have them. They are absolutely beautiful. They are a really flattering cat eye shape, with a matte black frame, reflective blue lenses and gold details around the edge. When I put them on i don’t want to take them off, They are so comfy and look so good I just love them. Yay for quay sunglasses. Even If i don’t know how to pronounce it..

Next thing I picked up from top shop is a crop top. It’s got a lovely Geo monochrome pattern, It hangs so nicely and you can tell it’s good quality. Unfortunately I can’t seem to get a good picture of it but I am going to do an outfit post with this in soon so look out for that!

Onto skin care, I popped into boots to pick up my trusty Camomile Cleansing Oil. Which might I add, The new packaging looks so much better than the old packaging! So much more fresh. I also had a quick look in boots because I needed my other Avene Clearance Cleanser that I use as my second cleanse. Whilst I was there I was in need of the La Roche Posay SeroZinc and Simple eye cream. Both of these products are my holy grails. If any body would like to see a skin care post let me know in the comments as I am thinking of doing one.

Now onto my favourite part. Make-up!  I picked up these two Items from Cult beauty. One is the Anastasia Beverly hills Brow definer. I am ashamed to say I have never tried any of Anastasia Beverly Hills brow products, I know I know, bit late to the bandwagon but I’m here, Finally. I’ve got to say I love it! My browns are annoyingly sparse so this definitely helps to beef them up abit.

The last thing I got from cult beauty was something I didn’t plan on getting…It’s the new liquid lipstick from the Joure from the Limited Edition Mermaid Range in the shade Daiquiri. You might have seen in on my instagram, If you haven’t, go check it out. Little shameless plug there ;). I picked this colour up because the rest were really bright and none of them were really ‘me’ so this was the only one I could see myself wearing. I tried it out the other day and I’ll just put it out there now, Its smells amazing. Of course it looks amazing too, It’s a gorgeous coral colour with a little bit of gold in there too. can’t beat a little gold sparkle.

I also made an order with Feel Unique. I was In need of a powder bronzer as I got to that point where all of my bronzers had disintegrated into nothing, You know the annoying moment when you’re putting you bronzer on and it just crumbles away..Yeah that happened so I had to get another. I’ve seen a few posts about the new realise from urban decay It’s called sun-kissed bronzer. I have to say I’m impressed so far and the packaging it so summery!

I also picked up my favvvvvvoouriteee all time mascara. If you’ve read any of my previous posts then you’ll know I’ve been on the hunt for a new mascara that I actually liked for yonks. I’ve decided to give up and resort back to my high end favourite Benefit Roller Lash.  I never want to run out again. My lashes just seem to love it!

Whats a good haul with out bit of Mac In there? I had run out of my beloved Velvet Teddy and decided it was time to get another before I go away because I literally wear it every day. Along with the lipstick I got a free small sample of MAC prep and prime Primer which I have already tried and It’s looking good so far, Abit of a strange consistency but It works so I’m okay with that.

Last but not least, I picked up the Real Techniques Setting Brush as I’ve been finding it had to set my under eyes with my pig powder brush. i wasn’t something a little more precise and this does the job perfectly! I’ve also tried it with highlighter and It does an amazing job!

I think that pretty much concludes this haul. I’ll be doing a few reviews of these products over the next few months so look out for those if your interested!
