Beauty/Make Up Haul // When 'just one treat' turns into 10 or so...

After finishing University for the summer I've had plenty more time to blog as well as read and discover new blogs. I've loved lazing around and reading, but there's only one danger; with new blogs comes the inevitable additions to my 'wants-list.' And today I took it out on my debit card, reassuring myself that I need a treat after passing my exams. Any excuse.

I got a little bit carried away...




Lancome Poudre Majeure Excellence & La Touche Pro
My usual Lancome powder and concealer have both run out, and although these are a completely different formula to what I usually use, at the mark-down price, I decided to try these instead. In my eyes, you can't go too far wrong with Lancome.
Nars Laguna Bronzer
Nars oh beautiful perfect Nars. I blame this one on Laura, she rocks this so well. Although this won't make me look like her, it seems to be everything I've ever wanted in a bronzer! Whilst I was at the counter I managed to add 4 more items to my wanted list, its all so perfect.
Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray
 I haven't really read much about this, but spritzed a tester on my face and went about my way. After seeing myself in the mirror a few times, I went to pick it up before heading home. The MUA at the counter was so nice, and gave me a free mini 'make-over' for fun. I did feel bad telling her I wasn't going to buy the palette though because I already own it, haha! She was awesome though, you don't come across amazing make-up-counter girls often, but a few are really passionate and truly happy to discuss make up. 
Fat Hair Shampoo & Conditioner 
 This one is down to Zoe, I bought this on her recommendation, with fat voluminous hair in mind - 2 for £6 at Superdrug!
Autograph Coral Blusher, Jewel Lipgloss, and Brown Mix Eyeshadow Quad
 I didn't intend to fall in love with the Marks and Spencers make up collection, but there is so much choice and there was 25% off the Autograph collection so decided to give a few products a try. It all looks amazing and they're reasonably priced..
Marks and Spencers Brightening Liner and Tangerine Lipstick 
for around £1 each in the sale section, result! The lipstick is out of this world, and I'm tempted to go back - Will be reviewing this tomorrow, I am in LOVE.

I'm sure you'll see me posting individually about some of these products, but do let me know if there is anything in particular you'd like to see me review!

Off to bed, night!

  7. I absolutely have the same problem! I just bought a new array of makeup brushes after seeing them reviewed on a blog! I'd love to hear what the shampoo and conditioner is like - anything for bigger hair! x
