Fashion and beauty haul ❤

Well hello to you my reader chums! Yesterday I went on a spontaneous shopping trip with my best friend. I wanted to pick up some new makeup items to try out and begin looking for clothing items for my holiday in the summer. I'm going to Chania in Crete with a couple of my best friends and I'm super excited! Here's all the things I picked up:

The first product is this Revlon colourburst matte balm in the shade 'Audacious'. I've wanted to try out the Revlon chubby sticks for a while now as I've heard many people rave about them. I chose this shade because I think it'll be perfect for the holiday and summertime since its a lovely bright orangey red. I can't wait to start using it, at the moment in Superdrug the range is only £5 each, what a bargain!
The second makeup item I bought was the Baby skin primer by Maybelline. I have a miniature version of Benefit's porefessional which I adore because when its applied, I find it really helps my makeup stay put longer. Since I love it, I wanted to see if I could find a dupe that has a similar standard from the high street- I'll let you know how I get on with it. Also as it was on a 2 for £10 deal on Maybelline, my friend and I both purchased it.

Another makeup item I got was the Baby lips Dr rescue in 'Just Peachy' by Maybelline. I'm fairly sure these are pretty new to the UK and as its been getting colder recently I wanted to stock up on lip balms. This shade gives a lovely nude pink sheen, and has a very minty/menthol scent, perfect for this time of the year.
The next product is The Body shop's honey bronzer in shade 02. I have a big love for my Sleek bronzer, however I wanted to start trying out some more bronzers and went to twitter for some recommendations. Somebody suggested this bronzer and as Gabby from Velvet Ghost has raved on about this for a while, I thought I would give it a go. I went for shade 2 because, I'm not the palest person ever yet I'm still quite pale and therefore as its quite warm toned it'll help give an added bronzed glow. It cost around the £13 mark.
 
The last beauty product is the beautiful ends hair mask by Herbal Essences. I've bought this mask before and have been using it for a while and I must say it's done wonders for my hair. As its a favourite of mine, I thought I would pick up another pot.
Onto clothes, the first item I picked up was this black and white aztec print crop top from New look. This is my favourite bit of clothing I bought, oh my goodness I just love it. The top has the most flattering, comfortable feel/fit and is the ideal length for a crop top. I can't wait to see what  I can put this with in the summer, I'm thinking it'll look super cute with high waisted shorts but can also be dressed up with a skirt and blazer. The top was only £6.99.
The next item is this cream coloured top with lacy details along the bottom and a strip of patterned print at the upper section of the top. This was in the sale in New look for £8 and I love the uniqueness to it, I've never really seen anything similar to it before. I think its very summery and it'll be ideal for a casual beach day with a pair of shorts and sandals.
Another top I purchased was this pale yellow basic t-shirt with lacy detailing along the bottom. I have the exact same one of this in white and since I get a lot of use out of it, I picked it up in yellow, adding a bit of colour to my wardrobe. The top was a bargain for £6 in the New look sale.

The last clothing item was this cream chiffon top from Primark. I bought this because I thought it would be a very versatile piece. Its a top which can be dressed up with a necklace, leather jacket, trousers and heels or simply dressed down with a pair of shorts in the summer. Costing £4, its a good old bargain.
The only accessory I picked up was this clutch bag. Oh my can we all take a minute to appreciate its in the shape of a chocolate bar?! I saw this and was like how cool and since it was only £2, I just had to pick it up. I'm not sure what I'm going to use it for, but I think its pretty sweet to bring on holiday with me, adding something a little different to the outfit!

The final item was The other woman on DVD. I love this film, its so relatable and hilarious, I could watch it over and over! I remember when I first watched it in the cinema and was proper cracking up! I said I'd buy it on DVD, which I never do with many films unless I love them. I highly recommend this one especially for a girls night in. Its down to £6.99 in HMV at the moment.
 
I hope you enjoyed this haul of all the items I purchased.
 
Thank you for reading <3

    And you might of saved the day for me! My hair has been really damaged lately and keeps falling out and it's only been happening for 4-5 months, ever since I stopped using the herbal essences hair mask.

    Thank you!!!!!!

  12. I've been looking for a white chiffon top like the one you've got from Primark, everyone I've tried you can practically see through and see my bra. What's the Primark one like?

    Great post! :)
