Last payday I found myself depart on a rather long shopping trip, I popped into town to pick up an outfit, and 5 hours later half my bank balance was gone. It was probably the largest sum of money I've spent in such a long time, I haven't been out splurging a lot over the past few months, so it was definitely due at some point. I picked up a hell of a lot of clothes but I also picked up some beauty items, so I thought I'd do a haul for you. I love reading hauls and they always make me want to buy everything, so keep your purses hidden!

My first stop was The Body Shop, the only makeup item I've ever owned from there is the Honey Bronzer so I thought it was time I picked up something new, and a few skincare bits too. I originally walked in hoping to buy their Radiant Highlighter but they were all out of stock, so I picked up Instablur and they had a buy one get one half price on all skincare and makeup so obviously I had to find something else. I have seen so many people rave about The Body Shop's cleansers, so I got the Camomile Cleansing Butter to try out. I can't wait to try both the products out and see if they should be as hyped up as they are!

Next I popped into Topshop to see what they had to offer, there wasn't a huge selection as it was quite a small store, but they had some lipsticks so I swatched away until I found some I liked the look of. I walked away with Rio Rio, a bright red, and Infrared, a bright red toned orange. Both of them are colours I wouldn't normally wear very often as bright and orange are two words you wouldn't ever use to describe my makeup, but they're absolutely gorgeous so I'm gonna give them a go. Hopefully you'll see me wearing them a lot over my social media sites. Either that or they'll sit in my drawer for 6 months, we'll see.

Lastly, I found myself in Boots, dangerous I know. I walked in with the aim to walk out with a mascara and a mascara only, of course that didn't happen. I picked up six items, which is only five more than I planned to leave with, so it wasn't overly bad. I picked up my holy grail mascara at the moment, which is Max Factors False Lash Effect Mascara, I love this mascara so much. It lengthens and separates lashes perfectly with no clumping, it's brilliant. I needed a new concealer and I'd seen a few people saying they compared the Seventeen Stay Time Concealer to the Collection one, so I picked up Stay Time and Seventeen's Phwoarr Paint for the more stubborn blemishes and under eyes. Foundation was next on the list as I walked round and I knew I had to try the L'Oreal Infallible Matte Foundation, so that dropped into my basket. Nail varnish is something I seem to own a lot of, but I always wear the same shades, as autumn is approaching us I spotted two colours I think I'll love wearing over the next few months which are Barry M Jelly's Pomegranate and Satsuma. Then I spotted Guava and I knew I just had to get it, I may not wear it much at the moment, but when I start wearing it, it will be my signature nail polish, I love the blue green colour. Pomergranate is a lovely deep pink toned burgundy, it's lighter than the average burgundy I wear all year round so it's a slight change. Satsuma is a red toned orange which I want to be a staple for me this autumn, but again with orange I'm a bit hit and miss, so I'll have to see how I get on with it.

I'm definitely going to have to save for a little bit so I can go on another massive splurge, and hopefully buy more beauty than clothes next time!

Have you been beauty haulin' lately?
