Last payday I found myself depart on a rather long shopping trip, I popped into town to pick up an outfit, and 5 hours later half my bank balance was gone. It was probably the largest sum of money I've spent in such a long time, I haven't been out splurging a lot over the past few months, so it was definitely due at some point. I picked up a hell of a lot of clothes but I also picked up some beauty items, so I thought I'd do a haul for you. I love reading hauls and they always make me want to buy everything, so keep your purses hidden!
Next I popped into Topshop to see what they had to offer, there wasn't a huge selection as it was quite a small store, but they had some lipsticks so I swatched away until I found some I liked the look of. I walked away with Rio Rio, a bright red, and Infrared, a bright red toned orange. Both of them are colours I wouldn't normally wear very often as bright and orange are two words you wouldn't ever use to describe my makeup, but they're absolutely gorgeous so I'm gonna give them a go. Hopefully you'll see me wearing them a lot over my social media sites. Either that or they'll sit in my drawer for 6 months, we'll see.
Lastly, I found myself in Boots, dangerous I know. I walked in with the aim to walk out with a mascara and a mascara only, of course that didn't happen. I picked up six items, which is only five more than I planned to leave with, so it wasn't overly bad. I picked up my holy grail mascara at the moment, which is Max Factors False Lash Effect Mascara, I love this mascara so much. It lengthens and separates lashes perfectly with no clumping, it's brilliant. I needed a new concealer and I'd seen a few people saying they compared the Seventeen Stay Time Concealer to the Collection one, so I picked up Stay Time and Seventeen's Phwoarr Paint for the more stubborn blemishes and under eyes. Foundation was next on the list as I walked round and I knew I had to try the L'Oreal Infallible Matte Foundation, so that dropped into my basket. Nail varnish is something I seem to own a lot of, but I always wear the same shades, as autumn is approaching us I spotted two colours I think I'll love wearing over the next few months which are Barry M Jelly's Pomegranate and Satsuma. Then I spotted Guava and I knew I just had to get it, I may not wear it much at the moment, but when I start wearing it, it will be my signature nail polish, I love the blue green colour. Pomergranate is a lovely deep pink toned burgundy, it's lighter than the average burgundy I wear all year round so it's a slight change. Satsuma is a red toned orange which I want to be a staple for me this autumn, but again with orange I'm a bit hit and miss, so I'll have to see how I get on with it.
I'm definitely going to have to save for a little bit so I can go on another massive splurge, and hopefully buy more beauty than clothes next time!
Have you been beauty haulin' lately?
