Clothes & Beauty: Recent purchases #8

Another haul... really Alice? Yes, I've been shopping again and these are a few of the things I've bought. I've been shopping for clothes a lot and not really make-up/beauty which is very unlike me but I wanted some clothes for summer as I'm going on 2 holidays! 

Shorts - Primark
Grey Crop Top - Missguided
Checked Skort - New Look
Kelly Brook Bikini - New Look
Cardigan - New Look
T-Shirt - Primark
Necklace - H&M
White Swing Dress - Missguided
Jumpsuit - New Look

Smashbox Photo Finish Blemish Control Primer - I had a £20 voucher for Boots so thought I would splurge on something nice. I've always wanted to try a Smashbox primer and the 'Blemish Control' type suits my skin perfectly. I didn't know that it actually had skin benefits as well as making foundation look seamless. My skin looks so much clearer I can't even believe it. Review coming soon!

Collection Nail Polishes in 'Coral Reef' and 'Antique Rose' - I wanted some new polishes and liked the shades in Collection (formally known as Collection 2000). These are gorgeous colours and I think they'll look great in summer.

Clinique Eyeshadow Quad in 'Pink Chocolate' - I got this from a friend who got the free gift set from Clinique. The shades are gorgeous and I don't really have those shades of pink so it makes a nice addition to my collection.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Eye paint in 'Rich Russet' - After hearing Lily Pebbles talk about this loads, I knew I needed to pick it up. I'm so glad I did. On days where I want a subtle make-up look but want to make a bit of an effort; a sweep of this across the lid is perfect.

Hope you've enjoyed my haul and link me to any of yours, I love reading those kind of posts.

Lots of Love,
