Haul - River Island, L'Oreal, Revlon and more!

I literally feel like I have not been on a proper shopping trip for ages! I can't wait until I graduate and can celebrate with a little retail therapy, but as of now I am poor. However, to keep me ticking over, here are a few purchases I have made. One of which you will have seen in my Beauty Wish List! I just couldn't help myself.

First up we have this top from River Island (£15). I saw it and thought it looked quite 'rocker'-ish and would look cute with my AllSaints boots and a leather jacket so I picked it up. I like that the sleeves are sewn up a bit and think it will be nice to wear this spring/summer as an effortless throw-on piece.

Next we have a hair band (£6) that I don't even know how to wear. I have tried tying it all different ways and I just can't seem to make it look normal. If any of you own a hair band like this then please comment below and tell me how you tie it. It is one of those ones made out of black lace with a wire in the middle to help it hold its shape. This is also from River Island and I thought this would look cute with the top above.

As you may recognise, this product (£9.99) was featured on my Beauty Wish List a couple of days ago. I just couldn't wait any longer for it. Plus, all the L'Oreal products were three for two,  so I purchased two items and my friend Becky got a mascara. Therefore it all worked out for the best in the end. I am really intrigued by this product. I swatched it in the shop and it seems to have a really nice consistency. I am slightly worried that the colour is to dark for me though, but a full review will come later when I have experimented with it some more! 

Next we have another Revlon Lipstick (£7.49). I received one of these in my blog swap box a little while back and fell in love so I went to go purchase another one. Unforunately I didn't really pay attention to the shades that were available. I saw that this one of the new releases so I picked it up and headed to the til. Oops! We shall have to see how it works out. If you are interested in it yourself, it is called Sky Line Pink (Pearl Finish).

Here we have my second L'Oreal product. I have used this before so it is more of a repurchase item for me. This is the Super Liner Carbon Gloss Liquid Liner (£6.49) and I absolutely adore it. I shall review it properly in the coming week. However I will tell you now that its great and you should definitely go and check it out.

Finally we have the No7 Purifying mask (£12.50). I paid for part of this by using my No7 £5 voucher that they are giving out at boots at the moment. I really like the idea of it as it is meant to use heat to open your pores and clear them, and when you wash off the mask, the cold is meant to tighten your pores again. All very confusing and long-winded but a review shall be following shortly.

Have you bought anything exciting recently? Let me know in the comments below.


  1. Bonjour! I've got a light denim headband that's exactly the same - I wear it under a bun with the tie on the top but slightly to the side. Pretty much like this: http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?q=rebecca+creighton&start=83&hl=en&client=safari&sa=X&rls=en&biw=1350&bih=609&tbm=isch&prmd=imvnsofd&tbnid=CtmA6GBoOirRcM:&imgrefurl=http://maggiered.blogspot.com/2011/04/april-star-of-month.html&docid=GUEi3RJCMpoaRM&imgurl=http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-XhIbtD6IrPA/TZpedmkqAtI/AAAAAAAAET4/rWHvnFgh1jY/s1600/RC%252B2.jpg&w=560&h=933&ei=85toT7GrBsfY8QPD0_H7CA&zoom=1

  2. Sky Line Pink is EXACTLY what I'm looking for but I've put myself on a spending ban, noooooooooooooo :(

    1. You can have mine if I decide I don't like it and you don't mind the fact that I swatched it a few times :s lol xxo
