 photo DSCF9162_zpsdc92e6bc.jpg

I've done a little bit of shopping lately; some of which i did in Liverpool which i did mention in yesterdays post but i also picked up a couple of things too so i thought a haul post was definitely in order and besides i love seeing haul posts and videos and seeing what everyones been buying lately! Firstly, just a quick disclaimer - I'm not bragging by showing these and secondly; I'm sorry the photo quality isn't that great, I'm having a serious nightmare with lighting so i just had to pick the best of a bad bunch!

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush | £5.57, Myprettyfaceplace.com
I've been reading reviews and hearing so much about this brush that my curiosity finally got the better of me. I love my buffing brush by Real Techniques but I'm very excited to see how this compares and whether i prefer this over it or not.

Real Techniques Shading Brush | £3.70, Myprettyfaceplace.com
I'm still contemplating whether to get the starter kit by Real Techniques so i figured what better way to see what they're like than by getting this singular brush - i love shading brushes and plus having extra ones means that I'll always have a spare clean one when i can't be bothered cleaning them right away.

Garnier Fructis Style Big Volume Heat Protectant | £1.49, Home Bargains
I ran out of my Tresemme one and decided to pick this one up to give it a try, it's nice and cheap and smells lovely so hopefully it'll be just as good.

Rimmel London Scandaleyes Precision Micro Eyeliner | £4.98, Savers
I'm just not getting a long well with my Essence eyeliner, i find myself not wanting to use it so i decided to try this Rimmel one to see what it's like - I've used it a few times now and so far so good!

Mitchum Advanced Control Deodorant Spray & Roll On | 2 for £4, Boots
I'm getting really sick of my other deodorant, i just feel like it isn't keeping me as fresh as id like to be so i decided to look at some other options and pay a little bit extra. Normally i only use sprays but I've decided I'm going to try the roll on as well as the spray to see if that's actually any better - I'm going to do a more in depth post with a spray vs roll on kind of thing.

YSL Youth Liberator Serum Foundation in B30 | £37, Debenhams
By far my favourite and most exciting purchase; very expensive, yes but just look at that bottle it's just beautiful. I really wanted to get a new foundation for autumn/winter and after doing a bit of research this was the one that i really liked the sound of and seemed to get really good reviews. I've only used this once and so far I'm pretty impressed by it and i can't wait to use it some more and i will be doing a full review on this product after I've spent a bit of time testing it out.

It's been so long since I've been to Lush that I'm pretty proud of myself at how restrained i was because when i used to go ages ago i used to spend about £40 each time so i was pretty proud of myself.

Dragon's Egg Bath Ballistic | £3.25
This is my favourite bath bomb from Lush and its the one that i always repurchase whenever i go into Lush and I'm super excited to use it because it's been absolutely ages since i last had one. It smells incredible and its just an awesome bath bomb.

Melting Snowman Bath Melt | £2.25
I've never tried this before but he was so cute and it sounds really nice too. Ive never tried one of their bath melts so I'm looking forward to seeing what it's like. Ive seen this featured quite a few times on blogs and vlogs so i really hope it doesn't disappoint.

Cinders Bath Ballistic | £2.45
I think Ive used this one before too but i can't remember but it smells really nice and again it's another bath bomb that gets a lot of rave reviews so i couldn't pass it up.

Tea Tree Toner Water | £3.95
I bought this after reading Beth's post on it; I'm constantly suffering from spots on my chin and I'm getting a bit sick of it and after reading Beth's post this sounded like just the thing i need. So I'm looking forward to trying it out and hopefully it will help me out!

Maybelline Brow Drama in Dark Brown | £4.99, Superdrug
I bought this mostly out of curiosity, I've really gotten into doing my eyebrows lately and this really intrigued me so i decided to pick it up. I'm really looking forward to try this out and seeing how it differs to using powder or to using a brow gel.

Bourjois Colourburst Lip Crayon in Red Sunrise | £7.99, Superdrug
I really loved the orange one that Bourjois released; i can't remember the name but i really love that product so i decided to check out some of the other shade and of course i ended up with one of the red shades. This is quite a light red but it's really pretty and i wore it when i went watching Bruno Mars on Sunday and it lasted all night so I'm pretty impressed so far.

Rimmel London Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Taupe | £2.99, Superdrug
This was an impulse buy; i picked this up quickly on my way to the till - i have one of these eyeliners in nude and i really like the colour taupe so i picked it up. This will be a great colour to wear when i want a really natural look on the eyes.

Barry M Lipgloss in Toffee | £4.49, Superdrug
This is a repurchase. I adore this lipgloss and would go as far as saying it is my all time favourite lipgloss and I'm so happy to finally have it back in my life and using up my last one. Its an amazing lipgloss, its not sticky and it smells incredible!

Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturiser | £2.38, Superdrug
I needed a new moisturiser so i just picked up this cheap one which is meant to help combat spot prone skin which mine seems to be at the moment. I'm going to invest in some proper skincare but I'm still looking into which to get so i picked this up to get me through for the time being.

and that is all the beauty-related things I've picked up recently. I will do reviews on most things so keep your eyes peeled for those!

Have you bought any make-up items recently?
