April Beauty Haul!

Earlier this month I tweeted out that I’m running out of products to review! That only means one thing, go and get more! That’s what blogger do, right? So I met up with Nadja (Throw Me Something Beautiful) for a beauty shopping trip at Westfield. We had a good look around all the big beauty stores as well as having a good catch up over lunch/dinner! 
I ended up buying a lot more stuff than I originally planned. My skin has been rather horrendous in the past few days with a few breakouts, faint lines and redness. As you can tell, I’m not too happy! I think it’s either due to the weather, Easter chocolates, stress, lack of sleep or a combination of everything! I’ve gone back to basics with my skincare, which has helped a bit. In the meantime, I’m trying to cover up my imperfections for special occasions and my current makeup collection is just not good enough, so here I am, stocking up on more base products. So let’s take a look at what I got shall we? 

First stop was Boots, of course! After spending an hour or so swatching products with Nadja, I finally decided on three products! What can I say? It was 3 for 2! I ended up getting Rimmel Clear Complexion Powder as I’ve heard a lot of positive things about it, then I picked up L’Oreal Anti-Dullness CC Cream (which I forgot to photograph!!!) because it look super cool and it has pigments adapting to your skin tone. Last but not least, a nude eyeliner from Rimmel Scandaleyes for my waterlines. Oh, and I also got some free samples from La Roche-Posay.
Next stop was MAC. Funnily enough, I walked right past the lipstick section and went for the foundations instead. I was originally looking for a concealer, but was recommended the Studio Fix Fluid Foundation instead. After a swatch test with one of the consultants, to much dismay, I discovered that I’m a NC15, which is the second lightest shade in the range! Boohoo! I blame it on the fact that I haven’t seen the sun in a while! 
Just before heading back, we stopped by Kiko and I ended up getting the Lip Volume Lip Treatment and Unlimited Stylo Long Lasting Lipstick. This is what I call a spontaneous purchase. The Lip Volume doesn’t really plump much, but it feels amazing on! I’ll probably end up reviewing in another post. 馃檪 
So what do you think of my beauty haul? Spot anything you like?

    Nothing beats a good shopping treat and a beauty splurge. I love Rimmel Scandaleyes pencils, they are amazing for the price and I've never tried the MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation but I do love Pro Long Wear x

    I think I am the only one who doesn't love Mac Studio Fix! I've had a sample a few times and its never lived up to my expectations 馃檨

    MAC Studio Fix Fluid is my holy grail foundation, gives such a flawless coverage and is perfect for photos! I would have thought you'd be more of an NC25-30 but what do I know 馃槈 lol x

    This is such a great haul (I love shopping at Westfield Shopping Center too)! I took advantage of the 3 for 2 offer at Superdrug and some 'shower' products at Boots. I am interested in your Kiko Review. 馃檪 xx
