Topshop Most Wanted

I haven't done a post in absolutely forever so I thought I would do a quick one now with a few items I like from the Topshop website at the moment. Naturally I could probably include 99% of their things on here but I have tried my best to narrow it down to my favourite few!

Here is my current Topshop wishlist....

What's your favourite item from my wishlist?

Summer Make up Haul!

 Woo! We are back from exams, and now there is less than 3 weeks till the holidays. We are going to get back into blogging, and will hopefully have a functioning shop by the end of the summer holidays, wish us luck! For now, here is a haul of make up things I have got over the past few weeks, enjoy!
Volume Million Lashes Mascara in 'Extra Black' - True Match Foundation in  'N1 Ivory' -  False Lash Telescopic Mascara 
 There was a 3 for 2 on L'oreal in Boots, quite a while back now, but I desperately needed a new foundation and was on the look out for a new mascara. I would say the foundation is a semi-matte finish and in my opinion, it is OK, but both mascaras are amazing.
Essie 'Good To Go' Top Coat £7.99 - Ciate 'Purple Sherbet' - Models Own 'Lemon Meringue' £5
 Major love for all three of these nail varnishes, although I would say the Essie top coat is my fave. It is really glossy and not only dries itself very quick, but dries the polish underneath. I got the Ciate polish free in Marie Claire magazine, and it's a lovely bright purple. It isn't very opaque but it dries fairly quickly so it is ok. The Models Own polish is much more pastel than it looks in this picture, and since I don't have very many pastel colours in my nail varnish collection, I thought I would get it. I really like Models Own at the moment and I am very keen to try more polishes.
Sleek 'Storm' Palette £7
 I know this picture is awful, but it captures the colours of the eyeshadows perfectly. I like this palette for it's value for money but I honestly don't use it that much since a lot of the colours are quite dark. Also, they give off a lot of fallout when you put them on your eye, so I would recommend doing foundation/concealer after doing your eyes.
Covergirl Simply Ageless Foundation in '255' - Covergirl Lipstain and balm in  '268'
 This is a bit random, but I though I may as well inclue it. We had a careers fair, and the company 'Proctor and Gamble' was at one of the stalls. They were giving out this free makeup, so obviously everyone was wildly grabbing it. I managed to get this foundation and lipstain. I hate the colour of the lipstain, however, the balm that comes with it smells really nice and is very moisturising. The foundation is way too dark, but I picked it up with the intention of using it as a cream bronzer. I have used it a couple of times and I actually really like the effect it is, so yes, fairly successful! :)
Mac Lustre Lipstick in 'Plink!' £13.50
Finally is this lovely Mac lipstick. This is my second Mac lipstick and unlike my other one, it is a lustre finish, so you should bear in mind it is very sheer. Although it is sheer, it gives a lovely pink wash with a slight silvery sheen, so is a very nice natural lipstick.

That is all. I hope you don't get too sick of hauls but there will be a fashion/jewellery haul up soon!

Also, I would be interested to know your recommendations for nude lipsticks for pale skin? Any ideas anyone?

Thank you!

Summery haul!

I went into newcastle with my friend last weekend and picked up a few summery things, and here they are...

Mac Paint Pot in 'Bare Study' £14.50
Something I have been wanting for ages is the Mac paint pot in 'Bare Study'. The best way I can describe it is rose gold - it definetely has a pinky tone to it, but has a lot of gold shimmer. So far I really like it, and it really does stay on all day, but I would say that if applied heavily, it is a little bit too light for me.
Pepsi 'Wild Cherry' Flavoured Lip Balm £3 - UO
I also saw this Pepsi lip balm in Urban Outfitters, which is usually £5, reduced to £3. It was so cute and it smelt so good that I had to get it!

Now onto clothes...
Primark Bralet £6
Primark 2 pack Bikinis £6
Primark Crochet Beach Dress £7
When I went into Primark, I was pleasently suprised with the nice holiday stuff they had in. My favourite item is the bralet which was only £6 - I just think the pattern, colours and price is amazing! I also got a 2 pack of bikinis for £7. I don't really like the black one, but I love the zig zag pattern on the other one - another bargain. I burn so easily, so I always need something light to cover me up when on holiday, and I thought this little dress would be perfect. It pulls in with rope at the waist and is a really light material - I would definetely recommend this for anyone else with a tendency to burn haha.

H&M Hoody £14.99

I quickly went into H&M and i saw this lovely grey speckled hoody. I got it in a size 12 so it is a little oversized, but since it is from the ladies section, it still has a nice fit - it's also really soft.

Final stop was topshop, where I found 2 great things in the sale!
Topshop T-shirt £15

Topshop Waterfall Dress £24

This t-shirt looks really broad on the picture, but I think it is just the hanger. It is actually a nice fit and I like the summery colours on the print.
My favourite item from the whole haul is this lovely dress, and it was reduced from £48 to ............. £24! The colour looks lovely with my pale skin, and it fits perfectly. It was initially supposed to be for a wedding that I an going to, but I think it may be too beachy, or look similar to the bridesmaid dresses. So I will just wear it on holiday :)

I will be getting back to my revision now, hope you enjoyed!
