What I bought #6

I went to Manchester with the boyfriend yesterday, mainly to watch The Conjouring, but we also went for some food at Pizza Hut and did a bit of shopping too (as always!). I actually didn't buy much as I'm trying to be good and save up for uni but of course there were a few things I couldn't resist.
L-R Too Faced Glamour Gloss in Pillow Talk | Collection Eyeshadow Pencil in Vanilla Sky | Calvin Klein Eyeshadow in Sheer Nectar | Calvin Klein Eyeshadow in Snakeskin Silver |

  The first place we went into was superdrug where I picked up The Collection Work the Colour Eyeshadow Pencil in 'Vanilla Sky' for £2.50. I thought this would work really well as an inner eye highlighter and a brow highlighter, I really like how easy this glides onto your skin and will probably pick up more shades.
Next we went into TK Maxx where I picked up a Too Faced Glamour Gloss in shade 'Pillow Talk' for £4.99  (RRP £14.99). I'm not usually a lipgloss fan but I decided I wanted to try more nude shades and absolutely love the colour of this. It feels really light on your lips too and not sticky at all, really glad I bought this!
And lastly, I nipped into Poundland as I was quite jealous of all the bargains people seem to be finding there lately. I was so happy when I saw they had a load of Calvin Klein eyeshadows in and decided I had to have 2! There were a few other shades like a deep pink and a light grey, but I thought these two were the only ones I'd really wear. Can't wait to wear these!

I picked up this month's Elle magazine at the train station on the way home which included the Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hairspray (RRP £7.50). I've yet to try this but I'm quite looking forward to it as I have really fine, flat hair so hopefully this will give it some volume!
 I also ordered these eyelashes from a few days ago and they arrived today so I thought I'd include them in this post. If you have read any of my previous posts you'll know I'm a fan of The Vintage Cosmetic Company's brushes So I really wanted to try their lashes too but at £6 a pair I always decided against it. That is until I saw them at a trial price of £2 on Latest In Beauty with free delivery. Again, I haven't tried these yet either but I'll more than likely do an outfit post including them when I go back to university.

Thanks for reading again!
