London Makeup Haul💄

Recently, I visited one of my favourite places: London! We had a spontaneous trip and decided that morning to go down to London and do some sightseeing and makeup shopping. It was an amazing day and I picked up some really nice beauty goodies from (the fabulous) Selfridges.



Dior lipgloss’ are so luxurious and the packaging is perfect; after loving my pink Dior lipgloss so much, I decided the collagen activ lip plumper would be a perfect addition to my lip collection. The results are fantastic, a difference can be seen almost instantly.

My  makeup journey began with Urban Decays palettes and they hold a special place in my heart so I decided to pick up the naked 2 for its rich shimmers and ‘going out’ feel. I can’t wait to start using it, especially paired with some of the pinks from modern renaissance.


I’ve been on the hunt for a glitter liner for about a year now and none seem to have the rich pigment I’m after however, there is almost no transparency to this peel off liner by too faced. It’s a gorgeous pink in the shade ‘yes way rose’

Finally, from Too Faced, this stunning palette full of peach/pinks and mesmerising duochrome shades. In loveee. It was £33 which I thought was very good for a high end palette especially as it came in quality packaging and has a huge mirror.

Fashion, New

New in: Primark

After venturing into Primark after about 2 years I was shocked at the prices. Everything in this haul came to £28. What?!? The collection of shoes on offer were so pretty however the clothes available were not the best (die hard Miss Selfridge fan). I love the things I did pick up and when it all came to less than £30, I really can’t complain!

Pink studded sliders

Definitely a love or hate, but these are my absolute guilty pleasure. I adore the pink colour paired with the pearl and metal studs. These will be the perfect travel shoe; at only £5 they’re a steal.

Floral sandals

These are gorgeous, so summery! Unfortunately I picked these up in a size three instead of a five so they will be going back…slightly gutted. (£6)

Lace sandals

There’s something about woody brown and dainty lace that works so well. They were super cheap at £4 and will be really nice with a casual summers dress.


Flamingo flip flops. YASS!

Facial wipes

Nobody can beat Primarks face wipe price. So useful for late nights and they come in many formulas so you can pick a pack to suit your skin needs exactly.

Valentino style sandals

Valentino’s iconic studs are everywhere at the minute. Dune have been using them and now Primark has followed. I really wanted to give these a go to see if they fit in with my style/clothes before I start saving for some heels in the real deal and at at £6 they do perfectly.

Rose tint sunglasses

These were £1 – there was no saying no at that price! They are kind of big but fit really well for something I’d assume to be low quality.

Face washing brush

I have tried this since purchasing and would not recommend. It’s not like I’ve lost a ton of money but the bristles are sharp, hurt and made my skin sensitive causing a break out. Spare your skin and your pennies.

Eyeshadow shields

I do my sisters lashes and thought these would be perfect to keep her eyes safe from the strong glue. However, the pads are very sticky so I’m not sure how well they would work for their intended purpose.

Pale flip flops

With a probable life span of about 5 minuets, I’m glad they were under a pound but for the beach they don’t need to be anything special. I like the pink colour and they are so comfortable.

I hope you enjoyed this little haul, it’s not something I’ve ever done but if it does well I’ll hopefully do some more in the future especially in the shops I usually go in (topshop, MAC, Miss Selfridge, boots ect).
