Recent Beauty Haul.

It's been absolutely ages since I last got spendy (okay, I always get spendy but I meant makeup spendy!). For a few months now I just haven't had that buzz about makeup. I've been busy with other things and I've stuck to wearing the same makeup and using the same beauty products day in, day out. However, recently my love for makeup has come back, maybe it's the change in season, who knows?! I've bought a few bits recently and I thought I'd share what I've picked up recently.

Something that really excited me recently was that finally, Wet n Wild launched in the UK. It's an affordable brand which I've been lusting after for ages but it was never available in the UK until it was finally launched on BeautyBay a few months back, so obviously I had to pick up a few bits.

MegaGlo Highlighting Powder | £3.75
Obviously I had to pick up a highlighter and at £3.75 it's an absolute steal. I got the shade 'Precious petals' which is a gorgeous peachy pink toned shimmer. Can I also just mention how stunning the detail on the highlighter is too? I cannot wait to wear this, it looks beautiful and I've heard so many amazing things about this highlighter.

Ultimate Brow Highlighter | £4
I have no idea why I've never owned a brow highlighter pencil before, so when I saw this one, I quickly added it to my basket. I'm excited to give it a try as it's something I've never tried before and hopefully I'll love it.

Color Icon 10 Pan Palette | £3.75
Being the eyeshadow palette junkie that I am, obviously I had to pick up one of their palettes. I couldn't even believe the price of them when I saw them. £3.75 for ten shades? Are you joking? I got the shade 'Rose in the Air' and it's the perfect palette for Autumn, it's full of pinks, oranges and brown  shades, it just screams Autumn.

Large Eyeshadow Brush | £2,  Small Eyeshadow Brush | £2 & Crease Brush | £2
I've been on the hunt for some new eye brushes for a while now, when I saw these for £2 each I was amazed. Not only do they look beautiful, they are incredibly soft too.

MegaLast Lip Color | £3
Before I went to Zante I was on the hunt for a peach toned lipstick, so when I saw the shade 'Just Peachy' on the website, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try one of their lipsticks. For £3 you cannot go wrong and it wouldn't matter too much if I lost it whilst I was out. It's a gorgeous lipstick and considering the price, it's very pigmented too.

I'd been lusting after a few products for a while and thought it was finally time to pick up a few bits of my recent wish list. These are the most expensive makeup products I've bought in ages, but I won't lie, I've wanted them for ages and they are so worth that extra splurge.

Iconic London Prep-Set-Glow | £18.50
I've been lusting after this for ages but it was always out of stock. Luckily just before I went to Zante it came back into stock. You can use it on the face and body and it adds such a healthy glow to the skin. I am obsessed.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Highlighter | £30
I am completely obsessed with highlighters and Becca one's are some of my favourites. This one in Royal Glow had been on my wish list for a while. Luckily, Emma's Mum knew I wanted it and she saw it on Cult Beauty in the sale so I quickly snapped it up. It's beautiful and I am obsessed with the crown detailing too.

Huda Beauty Coral Obsessions | £25
Coral shades seem to be my thing at the minute. I'm obsessed. I already own the 'Warm Brown' palette so knew I'd love this one too. They are quite small but I think they are perfect for travelling. Each palette contains 9 shades and you can create a variety of looks with these shades.

These bits are just random bits I found and fell in love with. Whenever I go into town I always pop into Boots or Superdrug and see what they've just released or products I haven't tried yet.

Rimmel Stay Satin Liquid Lipstick | £5.99
I first saw these on Emma's blog and wanted to try one as soon as I saw them! I got the shade  'As if' as I like a quite pale nude gloss to apply on top of pink lipsticks. I know that I'll love this as Emma does and I love everything Emma suggests.

Maybelline Color Sensational Loaded Bolds | £6.99
Again, I purchased this for Zante as I wanted to wear a bold lip. I got the shade 'Orange danger' and it really is a bold colour. It's a colour I wouldn't wear all the time but I'm glad it's in my collection for those times I want a statement lip.

Revolution Conceal & Define | £4
This is my third tube of the stuff, I really love the shade 'C1' for brightening my under eyes and boy knows I need to brighten those bad boys! It applies really well, lasts all day and doesn't crease so for £4 you really cannot complain.

Co Lab Dry Shampoo | £3.49
I won't lie, I 100% bought this because it had unicorns on it. I needed a new dry shampoo and this one made the cut.

I then went a little skincare crazy, I really need to start taking better care of my skin and I need a proper routine in place so I picked up some bits.

Whenever I go into Boots I always buy a pack of these, they really are amazing and really work. I also love them due to the fact they are super pink too. They are the best peel off mask I've ever used, literally it all comes off in one go. I'm obsessed. 

I won't lie, I got these as I wanted a few sheet masks and these are super cheap. I got two, the pearl one and the avocado one as these intrigued me the most. I've never seen or heard of them before but I am excited to try them. 

I've seen SO many people raving about this sheet mask, so of course I had to pick one up. I was intrigued due to it been a charcoal sheet mask and it's something I've never used before. 

Again, I won't lie. The packaging of this sold me. How beautiful does it look? For less than £3 I couldn't not buy it. I just hope it's as good as it looks! 

Lastly, I decided that all this wasn't enough and I really needed a splurge so I bought myself two brand new eyeshadow palettes. Oops. 

Too Faced Gingerbread Spice Palette | £39
I 100% blame Lauren for this purchase. I mean I wanted it anyway but she posted that it was online at Debenhams so obviously I ordered it within 30 seconds. It's just beautiful and I love Too Faced products so what's not to love?

Urban Decay Naked Cherry Palette | £42
I blame my friend Laura for this one! She tagged me in a Facebook post about a pre sale and I just had to get it. It's totally different to my usual choice of eyeshadow palette but I love it. Read my review of it here.
