You have no idea how much I want to tell you that this haul has accumulated over about 2 weeks but I'd be lying because this happened in 2 days. 2 days. It's a problem, it needs to be addressed, but lets move on to the haul. 
I've already done a review on the Stay Matte foundation so click here if you want to give it a read. I also got the Stay Blushed cream/liquid blusher to go along with it because I happened to swatch it and really liked how it looked. I find it to be a more spring/summer colour because its a coral shade so I'm looking forward to trying that when the weather gets a bit warmer. 
This Max Factor eyeshadow was a totally random purchase. I like the colour but I don't think it's that pigmented. I'm going to keep trying it though and see if my opinion changes. 
Next is something that I've been rather excited about but have to admit I'm the teeeeeensiest bit disappointed with. Its the Revlon Colorburst Balms. Mainly I'm disappointed with the colour range. I'm just not that thrilled by the shades. Saying that, my favourite is 'Elusive' which is a matte balm and it's a really nice deepish pink colour. There will probably be a review with swatches on the way though so I won't give too much away.
When perusing the aisles in Boots I happened upon this Seche Vite Top Coat and I launched myself at it. My local Boots is rather small so I didn't even know Seche Vite was stocked in larger Boots or if this is a new arrival. Either way, there was no doubt in my mind that it was going to be mine and I am expecting wonderful results. No presh Seche.
Next I bought this little makeup bag from Primark which has telephone boxes embossed on it. I've been looking for a cute little makeup bag for ages because my on-the-go makeup sloshes around the bottom of my Tardis bag and I can never find what I'm looking for. This will do the trick very nicely.  
Moving on to clothing items! I don't usually go in Topshop but I was killing time and popped in and spotted this bag. I love it because it looks like a vintage item and best of all it was only £15 reduced from £40. 
I don't know why I was so attracted to this t-shirt from TK Maxx as I don't usually go for slogan tees or anything of that variety but I found the 'Toki Yo!' slogan really unusual and cool.
I love how distressed this jumper from H&M looks. I've already worn it and love it. 
As if I don't already have enough gold necklaces! This one from Primark is really heavy which in my mind equals good quality. 
Lastly I bought this jumper from the Zara sale and I think its so unusual with the raised leaf design. It was originally £45 which is absolutely mind blowing but I got it for a cool £12.99. What a steal.
And that concludes my haul. I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the things I shouldn't have bought. 
Any tips on how I can curb my spending? Let me know in the comments!
