The Winter Splurge

It's finally 2014! Hooray! I hope you had a fantastic new years eve and day, and didn't suffer too badly from a hangover! My first post this year is going to be a haul, I got quite a lot of Christmas money and these are things I decided to spend it on!

Mac is the first place I went as I've been itching to be some things from there! The first thing I picked was Mac Bronze eyeshadow (thanks to this post by Sarah!). Bronze is exactly as it implies, a bronze shade, that doesn't lean too red or orange. I'm really excited to use this! The other eyeshadow I got was Charcoal Brown, which is a very hyped about matte brown shade. I picked up this eyeshadow solely to just fill in my eyebrows but it would make a really nice crease colour too!

I then picked up a Mac Paint Pot in Painterly as I've heard good things about their Paint Pots. Painterly matches my skin tone perfectly and cancels out any blue tones, which is perfect because I have quite veiny eyelids (TMI?).

Lastly from Mac, I picked up a lipstick in Plumful. This lipstick has been quite raved about so I wanted to give it ago. It is a Lustre finish, it's a pinke-y, plum colour and seems perfect for winter!

I got two things in The Body Shop, the first was a Brown & Lash brush, which was just because my old one broke and was getting a little gross! It was half price too so why not! I also got the Honey Bronzing powder as it's been on my wishlist for a while. The packaging is gorgeous and it's the perfect colour for my pale complexion!

Lastly I went to Boot (of course), I went in originally to get cotton pads but of course that's never the case! I'll get the less interesting stuff out the way first which is the L'Oreal Micellar Solution, I won't say any more about it as I talk about a lot! The other none interesting is the Tresemme Heat Defence Styling Spray. I love this stuff and it's the only heat defence I use because I think it really helps protect my hair, plus it lasts for ever and I'm pretty liberal with it!

The more interesting products I got from Boots were the Real Techniques Duo Fiber Collection which again I've heard a lot of hype from bloggers and youtubers! I love Real Techniques brushes and I like to contour and powder my face so I think these will really come in handy and help me be a bit more light handed with powder products! The last product I got was a Soap and Glory Make Yourself Youthful Eye Cream, now I know I'm not exactly getting wrinkles at 17 but I've heard this stuff is brilliant for dark circles and just for added hydration under the eye!

That's everything I brought with my Christmas money! What have you brought recently?
