Make Up and Beauty Haul. One.

Blogging is bad for my bank balance. Ok, so it's not like I NEEDED any ammunition to buy things and it's not like blogger is forcing me to buy things, but by having this blog, I have an excuse.

So, the other day I bought some things. Some of them I needed to restock, and other things were just because...

Some of them I've already used cos I've had them since the start of January, and some are more recent, so if I've used them then I'll give my quick thoughts on it. 

Garnier Micellar Water - Boots £4.99. This is a repurchase, and one I've repurchased loads of times already. I've written about it here if you want to see my thoughts on it.

Good Things Manuka Honey Radiance Face Mask - Boots £5.99. I bought this cos I needed a new face mask and this was the only one in Boots at the time that was for radiant skin. I've only used it once, and it did make my skin look healthier but it also broke me out. Either way  I will just keep using it to see if I see any real difference. 

Boots Botanics All Bright Purifying Face Scrub - Boots £3.99. This is another repurchase for me. I don't use it that often, 2 or 3 times a week maybe, but I tend to use it when I feel my skin is getting a bit congested. Yum. 

Mac Lipstick in Brave - Selfridges £15.50. I went to Mac in John Lewis the other day to pick up Mehr or Velvet Teddy. Then I saw this and Martin told me to get it! I know, he's a keeper ;) I haven't had a chance to use it so I can't report back just yet. 

Seventeen Nail Xtra Strengthening Base Coat - Boots £2.99. I bought this as a replacement for my Revlon treat and boost as I wanted more of a base coat as opposed to a treatment and so far I love it! It leaves my nails strong and they look really polished. 

Rimmel Rita Ora Nail Varnish in Rain Rain Go Away - Boots £2.99 I wanted a grey nail varnish with a purple undertone for ages, and when I saw this I thought it would be a pure grey, but it's not. I absolutely love it. It's a classy yet understated colour and just makes me feel more put together if that makes sense. 

Barry M Nail Varnish in Dark Side of the Shroom - Boots £4.99. This has been my favourite nail varnish this january! It's a dark grey/brown/purple and it's gorgeous. It lasts quite well on my nails as well, which is surprising. Haha.

Maybelline Superstay Better Skin Foundation - I bought this in the shade Ivory and it's a perfect match for my skin. I've only worn it a couple of times and I wouldn't necessarily say it lasts all day but it lasts a fair while on my oily/combo skin and the coverage is pretty good. I will report back after I've tried it out a few more times though!

Revlon All in One Mascara - Revlon have recently relaunched all their mascaras into black tubes with a coloured lid and the red one claims to create volume and length whilst being really black. Again, I've only used it a few times but I like it, although I find it a little fiddly to apply. It doesnt smudge or flake though which is always a bonus

If anyone wants any full reviews on any of these products then let me know and I can write one up :)
