Fashion and Beauty Haul!

Hello everyone! So today I thought I would do a post on some items I have picked up over the last month or so.

I had a day out with my parents, it was such a lovely day! We decided to pop to a nearby city and indulged in some shopping! TKMAXX and Matalan to be precise! Now I havent been to TKMAXX for a very long time and was so delighted when i discovered some amazing beauty finds!!

I have heard so many bloggers talk about NYX and Elf, but never tried these or seen them on the highstreet, I understand they are American (hope I am right on that one!). To my delight I found these two stunning palettes! What bargains! I literally nearly squealed and wanted to tweet all you bloggers to come over!

So firstly I bought this Elf palette, it has 32 eyeshadows, 6 lip colours, 2 blushes, 1 bronzer, 1 face shimmer, 1 eyebrow powder and 1 eyebrow cream! Boy oh boy am I going to hae fun with this!! And the price....drumroll please.....£4.99!! So happy with this! I hope they are as good as I have heard!

The NYX palette caught my eye due to the oh so glamourous packaging! Haute Jersey Leopard Culture is the name! I opened the case and to my delight found 24 eyeshadows, 2 lipglosses, 4 bronzers and 2 blushers! I love the look of this palette! And the price....£12.99! Cant wait to try this!

Next was Matalan! I actually liked quite a few items here! I usually dont as our local one is rubbish! But this store is fab! Couldve bought loads but was sensible and bought only two items!

A nude/peach shirt with a pleated drop down hem, an item that looked expensive and fabulous on! Team with jeans and heels with some fabulous earrings! Eek love it!! It was £18!

A black and white jumper with a longer back. So warm and comfy! I love the detail of the bright pink zip going all the way down the back of the jumper! £28!

Finally a couple of MAC treats! Marilyn Monroe has now got her own makeup range with MAC! I love when they feature amazing icons! Especially a stunner like Marilyn! So I pondered for ages on what to get and ordered an eyeshadow called Showgirl, a grey shadow, see swatch. Next I ordered a fabulous lipstick called Charmed Im Sure! A deep red that would vamp up any look! See swatch.
Hope you enjoyed this haul I know I enjoyed getting these treats!
