So over the last few weeks I have done what I can only describe as my fair share of shopping! There were some products I have been meaning to try for quite a while plus a bunch of beauty bargains I couldn't help but pick up! As I am going away on holiday in July, I've been on the hunt for some new beauty and makeup pieces I can bring with me. I've mainly focused on bright and Summery shades as these are the colours I like to wear in the warmer months!
The first thing I picked up was a copy of Marie Claire as I had heard there was a free Ciate polish with every issue! The only shade I could find was "Pocket Money" which is a creamy fudge nude which I'm not 100% keen on but I will give it a go none the less! Next I found 2 Maybelline Forever Strong Pro polishes in "Porcelain Beige" and "Lilac Charm" in my local Poundland. I have wanted to try these Maybelline polishes, especially the lilac one, for a very long time so I was really happy to see them for just £1! The formula of these nail polishes is amazing and I hope to pick up some more shades soon! From Primark, I picked up another Angelica polish in the sale called " Ocean" for just £1. This is a gorgeous shimmery mermaid blue/ purple and I think it would be great for Summer! Finally from Fragrance Direct I ordered a new Essie polish in "Off the shoulder" which is a hot pink shade! I'd seen this in quite a few people's blog posts and thought it looked gorgeous! I'm currently wearing it at the moment and I must say, it's going to be one of my top 5 polishes for Summer!
Again from Poundland I picked up a Sleek Sheer Cover Lipstick in the shade "Satin" which is a nude pink. I have bought Sleek lipsticks from Poundland before but the shades weren't what I expected nor were they ones I would ever wear. I'm glad to finally have a wearable Sleek lipstick in my collection! Next from Wilkinson's, I finally got round to buying another Rimmel lipstick in "Coral in gold" which is a pretty golden coral shade. If you read my Rimmel Lipstick Collection post you may remember that I said I had lost mine and that is was one of my favourite lipsticks! Now it's back in my collection and I can't wait to wear it again! My final lipsticks are the 2 of the new Revlon Lip Butters shades in "Juicy Papaya" (a soft coral) and "Wild Watermelon" (a red toned pink) which I picked up in Boots. I was planning on getting "Pink lemonade" (a light pink) instead of "Wild Watermelon" but I was so disappointed at how sheer it was that I decided not to buy it. The 2 shades I bought though are both absolutely gorgeous and look lovely on the lips!
Blusher & Eye Shadow
After reading so many hauls and reviews, I've finally got round to buying my first Dainty Doll blushers from fragrance Direct! I decided to go for "You are my sunshine" which is a golden peach powder blusher and "Paper roses" which is a delicate pink cream blusher. I'm so happy with the shades I got and can't wait to try them out! The next blusher I bought was a re-purchase of Natural Collection's "Pink cloud" from Boots. This is a pretty pink shade that I think will work on any skin tone! Natural Collection blushers are great quality for just £1.99 and they do a really nice selection of shades to choose from. The only eye shadows I picked up was a Seventeen Eye Shadow Trio in "Metallic Toffee" again from Boots. I had a coupon through the post which meant I could pink this trio up for just £1, which was an amazing bargain considering the RRP is £5.49! I thought this would be perfect for creating a simple neutral eye look as you get a lid, crease and highlight shade all in one!
I've recently found this gorgeous pink rose and gold spike bracelet from Miss Selfridge in the half price jewellery sale and it was just too pretty to leave behind! I thought it would be a simple piece that I could wear with lots of different outfits and layer up with different gold bracelets. The last piece is this dainty rose gold cross ring from Matalan. I don't often shop in Matalan, but I'd heard their jewellery selection is meant to be designed by the same people from Topshop so I thought I would take a look around. This ring is really simple and plain but because it's rose gold, it just looks lovely on! I will definitely be shopping in Matalan again soon!
And that's my huge collection beauty haul! I love everything I've bought and can't wait to start creating new looks with all the makeup.
