Diary of a lip product junkie (Vol 1).

Last night after having a quick sort out through my makeup box I noticed that I have emptied about 5 full sized lipgloss bottles aswell as nearly reaching the ultimate end of two very loved l/s. Yes, I had to bin em...... that hurt :'( Anyhow, my urgent need for new replacement lip products sent me marching into town today. Three hours later, I was two lip products richer!!!!!!

From left to right:
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in Light (shade 2) - my old Boots 17 one is a now a pile of poop :(
Revlon Super Lustrous lipgloss in Pink Pop
Revlon Super Lustrous l/s in Blushed

My local Superdrug was doing a 3 for 2 across all beauty products and so after both hearing and reading multiple good reviews about this much raved about Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer I finally decided to jump on the bandwagon. I'm not an avid concealer wearer and hate foundations with a passion but hopefully this will do the trick on days when my face is begging for some concealing!

Not finished yet, yesterday I placed my first order with :) I ordered:

NYX's jumbo eye pencil in:

Cottage Cheese.

and NYX's mega shine lipgloss in:

Sweet Heart.

Since my stuff from love-makeup is yet to arrive, I will leave the space below for a official photo of my order which I'll slip in later:

------ Picture Pending ------

Both Revlon and NYX are now my favourite drugstore brands for lipglosses - had to be said.

Earlier this week I was really upset because I couldn't meet up with one of my close Uni friends, all thanks to revision for my deferral exam which is in two weeks time, to say goodbye in person as she is leaving the country *SOBS*

I have also realised, that after my deferral exam I literally have just one bloody week left to do some last minute holiday shopping, meet the boy, eat junk aswell as finishing packing before jetting off on my holiday! ONE WEEK! With my last exam and all that still to do the next three weeks are going to be hectic......:/

Before I wrap up, a little teenie weenie background information...... I was having way too much trouble coming up with a suitable title for this blogpost, this may have seemed like one of those average haul posts hence calling this post a 'small haul' would make absolute sense, but the words 'AVERAGE' and 'HAUL' in the same sentence for some obviously pathetic reason were making me want to hide under my table. To cut a extremely boring story short, my ultimate spending/saving ethic is that I don't spend money or haul just for the sake of spending and without reason. EVERYTHING I own I use/want/need or have used/wanted/needed. If I do two parts of spending then I have to do atleast one part saving in a bid to balance the scale a little. Anyways...... rant over.

P.S. I PROMISE I am not shouting, oops :)

P.S.S. I'm feeling this yellow nail lacquer at the moment. Bring on Summer and Turkey!

Chine Glaze - Lemon Fizz.

Anybody else unofficially hauling?

Great post - I've been meaning to get my hands on one of those Collection 2000 concealers too - Ive heard such great things about it!

I've put myself on a makeup buying ban recently as I was getting into a really bad habit of 'treating myself' to makeup I didn't actually really need. I think the occasional haul is perfectly justified but when I see other people on blogs posting massive hauls all the time and I can't help but think "where on earth do you get all your money from?!" I'm mainly just jealous of them though...

One day, when I'm rich, I'll do a new haul every day ;)

@Franki That Collection 2000 concealer is very good, highly recommend that bad boy!

Haha init, some people haul all the friggin time! Personally, I cannot justify too much spending and always stop myself from buying makeup I don't actually really need ;)

@Lo Second that! x
