Collective Haul

I've been a little sloppy recently with buying things theres just not a lot that I really need and I am trying to save up a bit of money to start building up a make up kit. However, over the past couple of weeks I have picked up a few things to try out and some things that I have lusted over for a while.

To kick things off, I made an order on FeelUnique.com and I have seen so many youtubers and bloggers rave about the Caudalie Beauty Elixir, and firstly I have to say I really dislike the smell to me it smells like a cat flea treatment(?) but I am in the middle of using it and I got the 30ml bottle for £10.35 and the second thing I got was the Caudalie Make-Up Removering Cleansing Water 100ml for £8.10 which I am currently using (as you can see) and I am trying to work out if this product is breaking me out as I've had a un-normal (for me) amount of spots. Sad times. But unlike the elixir it smells far better.

Next up is the Botanics 100% Organic Rosewater Toning Spritz £3.49 from Boots. I've not heard anything about this product and as Ive had some pretty disturbing break outs over the past week, I thought I would pick this up as it says it cleanses impurities, this product also states it tightens your pores and removes any last traces of make-up. Also from Boots I bumped into the Origins counter and picked up the Origins Super Spot Remover Blemish 
Treatment Gel which in the shop cost me £13.00 but looking on the website it only says £12.00? Strange. But I have heard loads about this tiny little tub and thought it is the best time to give it a whirl.

Prancing into Superdrug now, I got the Revlon Nearly Naked Powder in Light for £7.99 to go with the Nearly Naked foundation. So far I like it but I don't really use powder too often only under my eyes but yes, I'm quite enjoying this powder at the moment. Also from Revlon I got myself two of the Revlon Lip Butters each for £7.99 one in the shade 'Strawberry Shortcake' which is a light barbie-ish pink and the other is 'Wild Watermelon' which is a new shade but a nice sheer pretty red. 
Also fron Superdrug I, for some unknown reason, felt the need to re-purcahse the Bourjois 'Chocolate' Bronzer for £6.99, when I have no-where near even finished my other one(?) Does anyone else do that? 
Okay back to Boots I re-purchased the Clinique Airbrush Concealer in the shade 03 Light, which I do actually need. But I love this under-eye brightener a lot it's just so nice for mornings for looking awake.
Debenhams now, I made an order from there a few weeks ago now almost a month ago and I bought the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette, I wanted the naked 1&2 for ages but whats the point, I don't wear eye shadow often and £42 is a lot of money for something that will hardy be used, so I opted for the smaller one of the bunch which is neutral (brilliant) and matte (bonus). So far, so good I'm really enjoying.

Also in my Debenhams order I got the Nails Inc. Leather Effect nail polish the black one. It's so awesome I love it! I just feel like 'yeah I have leather look nails, so what?' hehe. This was £12.00.
From Superdrug I also picked up the oh so popular BarryM Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Polish in Lychee which is a super pretty nude and I just adore it. It looks so pretty on the nails but It doesn't wash you out either and the colour looks nice with the packaging. Do you think?

So I have wanted a pair of Chelsea boots like these for so long and I could not find any that were not like 70 odd squids until I was nosing around online at Boohoo (love that store) and came across these Boots they were £30 and are ridiculously comfortable, I featured them in my last OOTD here.

So that is the end of my collective haul. Hope you are all well and speak to you soon.
