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!

If you're on the hunt for some summer clothing or a bright lipstick, here is my fashion and beauty haul.

Revlon colour burst lipstick

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 it's 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!
Maybelline Babyskin primer

Baby Skin Primer by Maybelline

 I have a miniature version of Benefit's porefessional which I adore because when it's 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.

Baby lips lip balm
Baby lips Dr Rescue in 'Just Peachy' by Maybelline

 I'm fairly sure these are pretty new to the UK and as it's 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.

Body Shop bronzer

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 it's quite warm-toned it'll help give an added bronzed glow. It cost around the £13 mark.

Herbal Essences Hair mask

Herbal Essences Hair Mask

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 it's a favourite of mine, I thought I would pick up another pot.

New Look Clothing Items

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 within 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 it's 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.

Primark Clothing Items

Primark Clothing Items

The last clothing item was this cream chiffon top from Primark. I bought this because I thought it would be a very versatile piece. It's a top that 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, it's a good old bargain.

Accessories and Miscellaneous Items 

chocolate handbag

The only accessory I picked up was this clutch bag. Oh my, can we all take a minute to appreciate it's 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 it's pretty sweet to bring on holiday with me, adding something a little different to the outfit!

the other woman dvd

The final item was The other woman on DVD. I love this film, it's 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. It's 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
