So over the past couple of months I've bought rather a lot of bits and pieces; I've had Birthday money, a Body Shop sale, and some other random bargains!
First up (because it's what I -unsurprisingly- have most of...) is nail polish! Barry M came out with 2 new collections of polish- the Gelly Hi-Shine and yet more beautiful Glitters. A while back they had a buy-3 get 1 free deal, and I got the Croc Effect and 'Web effect' (which unfortunately turned out to be rubbish :( ) - and best of all I spent my Birthday money on them, so technically these are gifts!

Glitters in Rose Quartz, Amethyst and Pink Sapphire, and Burgundy Croc Effect
No7 have revamped their bottles- they're no longer really tall and thin, and the neck of the bottle is much nicer- yay! I got these two with Boots £5 off No7 vouchers. The Models Own looks SO much nicer in real life- with purple, blue and green duo-chrome effect.

I found this lovely polish in the pound shop- I simply could not resist it; I've been wanting to try out Sally Hansen polishes for a while (as I love their base and top coats) and this is grey- so it's perfect for £1!

No for some make up bits :) There was an e.l.f. sale (50% off) a while ago, and I took the opportunity to stock up on some essentials, and try out a couple of new things.
|e.l.f Eyelid Primers in Champagne and Sheer, a Concealer Brush, an Eyeshadow Brush (these are awesome, I decided I needed two!) and a Shimmer Eyeliner Pencil in Plum Passion.|
|Studio Cream Eyeliner in Coffee (my current one is finally starting to dry out!), Studio Eyeshadow in Sand Dollar and Studio Eyebrow kit in Light|
I also spent some of my Birthday money on make up in Boots; I spotted a sale section with a bunch of Cargo products.

I've never tried them before, but I liked the look of this little collection (I knew, if nothing else, that the case would be useful!) and I love it- the OneBase certainly does not suit my skin tone, but the lipgloss and lip and eye pencils are great, and -most of all- I really love the Cheek Activator; it's a cream blush in a tube that blends out to become a lovely, natural (ish) flushed/rosey colour. I liked it so much I went back and picked up the full-sized tube for just £5.50! :)
And finally, I repurchased the lovely Collection concealer- mine is running, but it has lasted really well :)
I was planning to post this haul in 1 post, but I think it's too long- I'll post part 2 (with all my skincare, haircare and lip care products!) asap :)
