Beauty and Accessories Haul

January 08, 2013

Hey hey, I haven't done a haul as of yet so I decided seeing as I recently got paid and have purchased an awful lot of stuff that I'd do one. This is quite a big haul however, it could have been even bigger but I decide to split what I purchased into two sections; beauty and accessories and clothes. So, if you do want to see a post on the clothes that I've recently purchased then just tell me in the comments!

01. Topshop "Spice Girls" Heeled Wedges - £25
I am absolutely in love with these shoes! Ahhhhh I can't even express my love for them. I've had my eye on them ever since they first came into Topshop and although they're  cheaply priced for a good quality pair of shoes I wasn't prepared to pay £65 and so I decided not to buy them however I went shopping on Christmas eve and found that they were reduced to only £25 and I had to have them!

02. MUA Undressed Pallet - £4
I finally gave in to all of the comment about how good a dupe this MUA pallet is and after searching for it for so long I finally found a store where they had it in stock and I thought you can't really go wrong with 12 eye shadows for £4. They're all mostly pigmented and definitely worth investing in!

03. Blue, Black and Cream Clutch Bag - £3.50
I bought this bag a couple of weeks back when I was looking for a bag that was black and blue for new years eve. So, after looking around for a while I finally came across this clutch in Peacocks which normally is a shop that I'll walk straight past and never usually think about going in however, I found this clutch and fell in love with it and for £3.50 there's no cons really.

04. MUA Artiste Collection Pallet - £6
I was in superdrug last week and was looking at the ever so cheap MUA collection that's much raved about all over blogs and youtube when I decided to pick up the undressed pallet and two blushes. When I went up to the counter the lady told me that because I'd spent £6 on MUA products I was entitled to this free pallet, I was completely over the moon and can't stop using the pallet! The eye shadows resemble some of nars' mixed shimmer shades and the highlight its amazing!

05. St Tropez Instant Glow Spray - £7
I've been lusting over St Tropez products ever since they blew up over youtube and blogs 2 years ago but I never could bring myself to spending up to £30 on fake tan. However, I was in superdrug looking for a new tanning product and came across this instant spray on tan for only £7. I've never picked up something so quickly, I couldn't believe it and when I got home to try it I fell in love with it. It's honestly an amazing fake tan and I recommend it to anyone.

06. MUA Blush Shades 2 & 5 - £1 each
I popped into my local superdrug and decided to pick up 2 of the MUA cream blushes seeing as they are so pigmented and the colours are lovely. I'm hoping to have a collection of all them soon and I really want them to bring out more shades because they're seriously such a nice texture and an amazing blush for only £1!

07. Soap and Glory Fake Away Body Polish - £7
I've been needing to buy this body polish for ages as I did have the mini travel size one and used it all within a week. It left my skin so soft and smooth and I don't know why I waited so long to purchase the full size?! I also mainly bought it so that I had a gentle exfoliater for when I tried out my St Tropez tan.

08. Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer - £3.69
Yep, so once again I'm the last person in the world to jump onto this concealer bandwagon! After using this concealer for about 2 weeks now I can honestly say this is definitely one of the best concealers I've ever used. I'm definitely going to keep re-buying it once it's run out! Also, I recommend buying it from boots as at the moment it's only £3.69!

09. Natural Collection Moisture Shine Rose Petal - £1.99
I've owned almost all of the natural collection lipsticks apart from the ever so famous Rose Petal and I've got to say I'm not very fond of it. I think that for my skin tone the lipstick just appears to look like a concealer and doesn't really flatter me so I don't think I will be buying it again however, I've seen reviews of the lipstick and it looks amazing on most people.

10. Vaseline Cocoa Radiant Body Lotion - £2.99
I love this body lotion so much and will always keep re-buying it. It's so rich and moisturising and if you use it everyday your skin definitely wont be dry anytime soon. It's also really good if you've come back from holiday and have a natural tan as the molecules help to lock in the tan and make it last up to 2 times longer!

11. Ted Baker Makeup Bag Christmas Edition - £15
I've been needing to buy a new makeup bag for a while now and I wanted one that was of a good quality and also quite spacious. So I was looking in the after christmas sales and discovered that Ted Baker had brought out a range of christmas bags and makeup bags and decided to splurge £15 on the little cosmetic bag, hopefully it'll last me the year?

12. TOWIE Trio of Lipsticks - £1 for all of them
Ok little disclaimer, I am from Essex myself however I don't enjoy the show as it's seriously the absolute opposite to what life in Brentwood actually is like. Right, so I was in Primark picking up a couple of essentials when I was looking at all of the branded makeup and body products they've started selling when I came across these 3 lipsticks and taking no notice of what make they were I decided to buy them purely because of the vibrant colours that will be perfect for summer! They're honestly one of the best lipsticks I've ever bought, the texture is lovely and the colour stays for ages. If you can find them in your local Primark I would absolutely not hesitate to pick them up!

13. Primark Fake Tan Mitt - £2
I needed a new mitt so whilst I was in Primark I quickly picked up this standard fake tan application mitt. I don't have much to say about it as it's pretty standard and no different to the others I have used!

14. Primark Sultry Lashes - £1 each
Every time I go into Primark I can't help myself from buying these lashes. They are actually amazing! They're my everyday lashes and even in the evening when I'm going out I layer 2 or 3 pairs to give a fuller look. You really can't go wrong with these lashes, they're such a nice style and for only £1 they're a fifth of what you would normally pay for 1 pair!

15. Forever 21 Gold Collar Necklace - £3.90
For those of you that don't know I work in Forever 21 and I'm constantly spotting style steals that are at bargain prices! I was so happy when I found this little steal, I've been searching for a necklace that resembles a collar necklace but doesn't surround your whole neck for so long and when I saw this I had to have it. £3.90 is such a cheap price for a good quality necklace and this has definitely become a staple for my daily outfits.

16. Primark Long Cross Chain - £2
The photo says it all really. This necklace is a staple peace for this transitioning season from winter to spring and for only £2 you have to pick it up! This necklace will definitely add a bit of spice to any plain outfit and every girl should definitely own a long chain necklace.

17. Forever 21 Bowler Hat - £10
Absolutely love love love love love this hat! It's such a simple hat but could make a massive difference to your outfit. I've been looking for the traditional bowler hat style for ages after only finding fedora style hats I was disappointed until my store got a new delivery and I snapped the hat up so fast. This is also a main staple in my wardrobe and every girl should own one!

Much love Hannah x
