We’ve all done it right? As soon as payday comes around you want to go shopping and spend a little bit of cash. I did this last weekend both in Boots and online. So, if you’re interested, here’s what I bought with my usual justification for buying them!!!

My nails have done their usual trick as soon as it gets a bit colder and the heating is on and they’re just falling apart in front of my eyes. When I saw these in Boots I figured I’d try them. You get 200 nails for ¬£8.50 which I don’t think is too bad. I’m going to try them out this weekend when I got to a Halloween party after I’ve painted them up on friday.

I love the normal formula of L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes but there are some times when you need a waterproof mascara so I figured I’d have a go with this one. I’ve not used it yet but will do soon.

I was wanting a new foundation as the Rimmel one I am currently using is running out and I wanted to try something new. I saw this used on a few YouTube videos so I thought I’d give it a go. I have used this a couple of times and I have to say I’m impressed. The coverage is just enough and it doesn’t look cakey at all. The only downside is I don’t think it lasts the 16 hours they say it does.

This is the second tube of this concealer I own and whilst I’m not sure about whether I like the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation, I do like this concealer. It covers up my dark circles (unless I’ve had a really bad night) and it’s nice and creamy. I’m sure I’ll be using this for a long time to come.

I have to admit, I got this one by accident. I meant to pick up the red Kate Moss lipstick but I obviously wasn’t paying that much attention!!! I can’t for the life of me remember what number the colour is (I’ll check later!) but it’s like a ‘my lip but better’ colour. It’s good for something subtle for work and the formula is quite nice. I might have to go back and get the red one too cos I really liked the colour of it.

I have been seeing this brush used on YouTube for ages and raved about on blogs from around the world so I finally managed to get around to using it. I have high hopes for this brush. I can’t wait to use it in the morning.

I seem to be on a bit of a foundation kick at the moment and, to be perfectly honest when I bought the Bourjois foundation pictured above, I forgot that I had gone and bought this one. The colour may be a tad light for me but I reckon I can work with that and it’ll come in handy for the halloween party!!!

Speaking of the Halloween party (!) I have been making a costume and I have to say it’s turned out quite well if I do say so myself. I tried to take pictures of the skirt but you can’t really see the detailing. I’m hoping that there will be some good pictures from the event itself and I’ll put some up here if I can. I have to admit that the thing I am looking forward to most is doing my hair and make up because Halloween is an excuse to go all out (not that I really need one). I’m gonna practice on Friday night so if it turns out good I might put up some pictures.
