Hello! I love to shop,and shop some more; the reward you get trying things out/on is irreplaceable. Here are some of the things I bought / received this month.

I bought this long sleeve turtle neck jumper from New Look (£7.99) and I must say I love it. New Look products are so good because they especially focus on the quality. I matched this top with my dungarees from New Look.

Thanks to a couple of rave reviews, I checked out everything5pounds.com and was not disappointed. In addition to buying a black pair of jeans, which are prefect from day to day, I also bought a burgundy sweater dress. I was so surprised about how thick it was, its perfect for lounging around. One of my best clothing purchases in a while!

As British weather is ridiculously unpredictable, it seems wise to purchase some boots with grips for when it snows in March, which it probably will. I got these ankle boots from New Look which are lovely, and super comfortable, costing only £15. Great buy.


From a giveaway that I won, I received 3 products. The first of them was the Urban Decay 24/7 Waterline Eyeliner in Legend. Black eyeliner is such a staple makeup product, I have 6 myself, and this one is so good. It creates solid black  lines, which many eyeliners still cannot manage, and caters for my super watery waterline. At £15.50 is is on the higher end, but definitely worth the price.


 The second product I received was Benefit’s Dallas. Now I am confused with this product: is it supposed to be a bronzer or blush? I find it too light to bronze but too dark to blush so this has left me confused. As with any Benefit product however it is aesthetically pleasing and smells gorgeous. It is on the higher price range, £24.50, maybe if I knew for definite I was putting this in the right place, (in between contour and blush) then I would be happier with this product!

The last product I received was the TAM Beauty Rainbow Highlighter. Every aspect of this product is beautiful. In all honesty, it is one of the most pigmented highlighters I have ever owned. When all the colour are mixed together you get a cool silver colour, which is easily wearable.

I was recently gifted the Garnier Ambre Solaire Sensitive Advanced Protecting and Hydrating Face Mist SPF50 in return for a honest review. Garnier themselves claim their product to “offer everyday protection against the harmful effects of UV rays, free radicals in pollution and dehydration”. Since using this mist on my face, I have found that it has really hydrated and moisturised my skin. Although it is difficult to tell whether it is protecting my skin from sun damage, it does feel like there is a layer of protection, if you know what I mean, without the heavy feeling of sun cream. It sits perfectly on top of makeup and is only £6.50! I will definitely be repurchasing.

The final product I bought this month was the Too Faced Natural at Night palette. Although discontinued, I was able to get it brand new on Depop. For anyone who hasn’t heard of Depop, it is basically an app where people can sell their unwanted items in a trustworthy format. I have bought I few products from here and have never been disappointed. Anyways, this eye shadow palette is amazing, the pigmentation is very good and lasts all day. It also gives tips on the best eye looks based on what you are going for (classic, night and fashion).

      I haven’t warmed to Dallas yet, but I’m sure I will! The too Faced palette has been discontinued, but I’m sure it’s still available!
