I went shopping again. *slaps hand* 
At the weekend I went to Cambridge for the day with my family, and while we were there some shopping took place. I wasn't expecting to get much, and I only got 2 things in total, but the next day I took a trip to boots and got a couple of bits too *slaps other hand*

MAC Cosmetics... A new place for me. I always swoon at the new collections, the brushes, shadows, blushes and lipsticks, but never end up at the till. This time, I splurged (it's not often that I do so) and got a lipstick in Faux. £15 for a lipstick is pretty extortionate right? But this is perfect. A' Your lips but better' shade, like 10 times better. A bit of pink, and bit of browny nude, and a bit of plum all in one lipstick. Definitely a new favourite of mine, and worth the price tag it comes with in my say.

After watching a vlog the day before I went from Tanya Burr, I saw the Cath Kidston store and I knew I would be hunting it down. Trying to avoid the over-priced items, I found a cute little cup, it is only plastic, but it is in a nice pattern and for £3 from a store where you normally pay for the name (don't get me wrong, it's lovely), it was mine in minutes - I was going to buy a makeup bag, but I couldn't justify it. And I must say the bags are mighty fancy, pale blue with red writing, in a very nice thick plasticky/rubbery texture.

Moving onto day 2 of the haul. I went to Boots, mainly because I had been told about a clearance they had on with some good items in it... By Megan - The greatest bestfriend I could ask for, but not so great when it comes to provoking me spending money, haha. 

I got the Maybelline 24HR Color Tattoo in Pink Gold, as this was £2.00 in the sale. I literally think they had discounted this as they had ran out of room on the stand after getting the pomegranate one in that store... it's a little silly if you ask me, but I got it cheap and that is what counts. Being a grey-green eyed gal the whole pink-ish-purple thing doesn't suit me as much as I would like, and safe neutrals are my thing. But I use this with the On and On Bronze one and it is far from the punched-in-the-socket look I was expecting. 

Another purchase inspired by Megan is the Cuticura Passion Flower and Mango Antibacterial hand sanitizer. My Soap and Glory one has close to nothing left in it, and this bad boy is huge. a whole 100ml, for only 84p, normally £1.30, but nothing close to the £2.50 S+G have to offer - for only half the amount of product. 
It smells incredible too, and makes me feel squeaky clean! I plan to use this at school before and after I eat lunch, and then also before I apply my makeup in the morning. 

Last weekend I got this. The Una Brennan Super Facialist Tea Flower Mask. I have used it 3 times now, and I am in luurrvvee. I will have a review coming soon, so I don't want to give away too much about it, but I still love it. This was £5.99 in Boots on a £3 off offer, so if that is still on, get it now! So far, it has worked wonders for my skin, and I am very pleased with it. I thought I should show you just before the offer could run out. 

Other than these items, I got an MUA Cream Blush Megan was after, and also a Calvin Klein cream shadow from Poundland - it isn't great. I won't bother writing about the two, because one isn't mine and the other isn't worth talking about... Its a greasy mess to be brutally  honest, that'll teach me not to buy all sorts of randomness from Poundland! 

That was my haul, I think I need a spending ban, but I just can't commit. I am hoping to go to a local car boot sale on Sunday, and I am so looking forward to it! I lot of people find great beauty things, so look forward to that if I find any gems.

  1. Faux sounds lovely and like a great shade for Autumn! And I have both on and on bronze and pink gold, I think they create such a good look together and even individually they're gorgeous colours. The Boots sale sounds tempting!


  2. What an awesome little haul <3 I love all of these items. I will be visiting a MAC counter tomorrow *slaps hand*. I'm excited! xo
