London Haul

I asked at the end of my last post whether you guys wanted to see a haul and you lovelies told me on twitter that you wanted to see a haul.

A couple of these products were purchased before I went away but for the weekend so I figured I'd pop them into this haul too.

Gonna start on the makeup first:

LtoR: Collection 2000 big fake mascara, Soap and Glory lipstick, Revlon Facets of Fuchsia, Witch Skin Clearing Primer, Rimmel lipstick, F&F Lipsticks, Collection 2000 Creme puff, Burt's Bees lip balm, Rimmel matte nail polish, Bourjois lipstick.

I'm not going to bore you with reviews as I'll probably do separate reviews for these products.

Collection 2000 Big Fake Mascara

I like this as an everyday mascara, it is supposed to give you the effect of fake lashes which I find it doesn't. It does however give some length and great volume. This mascara is waterproof which is a great extra and quite cheap which is a bonus.

Soap and Glory Lipstick

When I heard about soap and glory releasing cosmetics I had to get my hands on their stuff, I got the lipstick in Naked Beige and I adore this. I wore this the majority of the weekend and fell in love with it. It's lovely nude colour with shimmer so it does look as if you have lipstick on but very subtly. I will deffo be getting more of their products.

Revlon Fachets of Fuchsia

If you're a fan of Britain and Irelands Next Top Model you will know the winner Jade is the face of Revlon and this is part of the collection, this is a great autumn varnish. I love that it looks different to what it does in the bottle, a dupe for Deborah Lippmans 'Bad Romance' and if you do like this I'd recommend snapping it up quickly as it's selling out quickly.

Witch Skin Clearing Primer

I figured after hearing Witch had released a cosmetics range I'd try their primer as my skin has been bad lately, and this is a great product. I find this has helped clear my skin and it does so quite quickly. I don't necessarily think it's the best primer in the world for prolonging your makeup but it does help your skin.

Rimmel Latino Lipstick

This was one of those impulse buys that you find yourself getting, I love the colour of this and it's quite similar to Mac's Bombshell, it has the similar pink gold look to it for half the price. This is the kind of pink that I adore so I couldn't help but buy it.

Tesco F&F Lipstick

These two products I actually got the Monday I got back as I had the day of uni to recover, the Tesco I live closely to re-opened Monday after being redone (and it's massive) so my mom and I raced to the makeup counter and I felt like a kid in a candy store as the testers were brand new, I did pick up the lipsticks 'Penny Lane' and 'Shhh...' these again are lovely pink colours and great for everyday wear. The packaging of these are black, chic and stylish and remind me of Kate Moss' lipsticks. These are one of the products once I've tried I want to do a full review for you guys.

Collection 2000 Creme Puff Lipgloss

This is my HG of lipgloss, purely for the fact when it comes to the colder months I don't like shimmery lipgloss and this is actually matte which I love. I got the colour Cotton Candy and it's a bright pink, but once you apply it to your lips I find it doesn't appear so bright. The smell is also something I love about this, cheaply priced and will definitely repurchase.

Burt's Bees Lip Balm

I have heard a lot about this product both in the blogging world and magazines and I figured I'd try it out as Debenhams had a 750 points offer in store. I got the red one as I believe there are two colours to choose from? I adore this product, I normally suffer from dry lips and this is a great product to combat that, I've tried other cheaper products and they also do the job but there's something about this that I just love, not sure whether it's the smell or not but I love this.

Rimmel Matte Finish Topcoat

As you may now I love matte nails, and I currently have Elf's top coat but I figured I'd branch out and try Rimmels. I have yet to try this but hope to this week, I love Rimmel varnishes so I'm hoping this doesn't disappoint, will let you guys know how I get on with this.

Bourjois Sweet Kiss Lipstick

As you may see I have an obsession with lipsticks, and this is actually my first Bourjois lipstick. I have other products of theirs so I figured if it's as good as other products I'll be onto a winner. This is another shimmery rosy pink and looks lovely on, my only gripe with this is no matter how pretty the packaging looks it can be a pain to open as you have to push the little button down. Other than that I love it.

Benefit Project Flawless

A little treat from my mom, I was after Bella Bamba and when I saw this for £29 I figured why not as it's just a bit more than the price of Bella Bamba, and I'm loving the products I get with this. Haven't properly tried everything out but again full review to come.

OPI Varnishes

I love OPI and I managed to get my hands on three polishes, two from the Miss Universe collection 'Crown Me Already' and 'It's my Year' the last one I got is one I've been waiting ages for and it's the 'Rainbow Connection' from the muppets collection.

I got this little gem from Past Times which I adore:

Top from Drop Dead:

Topshop socks (couldn't resists):

and lastly my boyfriend treated me to this cute teddy from Madame Tussauds:

I did get a lot more but some of the stuff I'm either wearing (as I forgot to take PJ's so had to hunt for some *blonde moment* or is in the wash.

As a couple of you asked about my placement I'm doing it with News Team International in Birmingham and I love it.

Just want to know what you're favourite products are at the moment?
