I shop a lot/Haul

You all must know by now that I shop, a lot. I've bought a lot more than this in the previous month, believe me, but I thought I'd show you some of the more interesting things... I think I may make hauls a regular thing on my blog. My Instagram pictures of tons of beauty products tend to be popular, so I may just bring them over here. Think I may do them every month around the time of my Favourite Things posts, and the next one will be after my Birthday, so hopefully that'll be an exciting one. (Fingers crossed...)

Given that Boots had "buy one get one half price" on all cosmetics, it'd be wrong to not buy myself some new Essie polishes wouldn't it? I'll just keep telling myself that... I picked up "The more the merrier" a beautiful bright lime green shade from the summer collection, and Splash of Grenadine, an opaque purple with slight pink-tones. Both are equally beautiful and very summery, ideal for this beautiful weather!

MAC YOU GET ME EVERYTIME! Okay, so I may or may not have treated myself to a new quad, no biggie... Left to Right, it's Nylon, Naked Lunch, All that Glitters and Mystery. I also picked up Vanilla Pigment. As you can tell, this quad, my 217 and myself have already been on a date (wink, hubba hubba...)

I couldn't resist posting more pictures of these beauties by Chanel. How I managed to stop myself at three, I really don't know. Despite my Chanel Soleil tan de Chanel, these are my first Chanel makeup purchases, and I decided to get something classy, and elegant, given that Chanel is almost like the God of elegance in beauty. I decided on the Rose Cache Le Vernis, and the Rouge Allure in Evanescente, a beautiful pink/nude which is a "your lips but better shade." I'm going to save both of these for my upcoming birthday to make me feel extra special. Chanel, I do believe you have started a love affair...

With all that nail polish, I need a new remover, right? I'm loving this one at the moment! The scent is very strong when you open the tub, but the scent which tends to linger on your finger tips is really quite lovely, very floral and summery.

It was Superdrug's fault...

On my way to my eye appointment earlier I had ten minutes to spare, so when walking past Superdrug who had signs for "3 for 2 on all beauty" I knew I had to pick a few things up. I've been enjoying the Revlon cream blush in "Flushed" so I thought I would pick this one up too. The Bourjois Cream Blushes have been going down a storm in the blogging world too, haven't they? They're so teeny tiny I couldn't help but be sucked in by how cute they are. The colour range isn't so vast, but with a coral, pink and nude type colour I think they have created very wearable shades for all skin tones. 

I'd never seen these Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks before, so with the HUGE colour range catching my eye, I picked a frosty pink, called Pink Pearl, which could be a dupe for MAC Angel and a gorgeous red-toned coral, called Coral Tonic. I've been lining my lash line with liquid liner a lot more recently, and it makes my eyes appear pretty big which I really like, so I thought I'd give Loreal's Super Liner in intense black a go.

If anyone wants to see these swatched, or used I'll probably be reviewing them soon! And again, thank you SO much to my readers, and all the people who have been SO nice to me, and supportive whilst I've been blogging, I love you all!! Have a good weekend...
