If you've been reading my blog for a while you'll know when it comes to shopping, i might have a slight addiction. I'm terrible! I'm supposed to be saving money but there are so many things i want and it's very hard to restrain myself when in shops or browsing online.
If you also follow me on Instagram too, you'll have seen this photo that i uploaded the other day and i asked whether anyone would be interested in reading a haul post. Turns out people did want to see it so here we are!
So, the other day it was payday and i was browsing around the Internet (always dangerous!) and decided to buy a *few* things off my wish list. NYX is a brand where I've just loved everything I've tried from them and always have on my wish lists. I picked up 3 of the Soft Matte Lip Creams that came in a set called "Give it a little love". These normally retail for £5 each but the set of 3 is £12, so it's a pretty good deal! The three shades are "Addis Ababa", "Antwerp" and "Tokyo". Tokyo is a lovely peachy nude, Antwerp is a bright orangey coral and Addis Ababa is a bright dark pink. I've never been one for matte lip products, assuming they'd all be drying but lately I've been trying to get myself into the habit of trying new things i wouldn't normally try! I'm happy i bought these however, as they're beautiful pigmented and not drying. Next, i bought the Photo Loving Primer in the Anti-Redness variety. I've been looking into getting a green primer for a while now, as i have a lot of redness on my face and then i stumbled upon this! At £11 it's a pretty good price and i can't wait to see if this works out. Last from NYX, i picked up one of the Black Label Lipsticks in "Hot Pink" in the Sale section of the site. It was £8 but reduced to £4 which is literally a very bright, hot pink!
I headed over the Superdrug website too, which is always bad for my bank account, and ended up buying a fair bit. Oops. Anyone who reads my blog will know how much i adore the MUA Professional Eye Palettes. I had to pick up a couple that i either had used up or never owned before. I picked up the Undressed palette and the Undressed Too Palette. Both are amazing quality for a really low price, with beautiful colours. I really cannot put into words how much i love MUA's eyeshadow palettes. I also couldn't resist buying some new make up brushes so i had to grab the Real Techniques Core Collection as well as the Expert Face Brush. The Core Collection contains 4 brushes: The Buffing Brush, The Contour Brush, The Pointed Foundation Brush and the Detailer Brush. I tried them that day and so far, I'm pretty impressed with them. The Expert Face Brush was the one i was most excited to try out though, with so many people raving about it. I love my Sigma f80 but want to see if this brush will give it a run for it's money. The Core Collection costs £20.99 and the Expert Face Brush is £8.99. Last, but not least i picked up two Barry M Nail Polishes. The first is the Nail Paint in "Blueberry Ice-Cream" which costs £2.99. It's a lovely light blue colour that looks gorgeous with a tan! The Other polish was one of the new Confetti Effects. I've not really been into this craze recently with "Nail Effects" but this one is one i can live with. The shade is called "Bubblegum" and is a mixture of blue and white confetti which looks lovely layered over Blueberry Ice-cream.
I will be reviewing all of these products soon and so far, I'm liking them all! If you'd like to see an specific reviews, comment and tell me which products you'd most like me to review!
