Huge Highstreet Makeup Haul


My makeup collection is growing rapidly and getting seriously out of control, so much so that I have actually had to buy alternative makeup storage. So, sadly this will have to be my last haul for a while I think.

It was recently payday for me so I decided to got shopping and I ended up doing some damage to my purse. So here is what I got..


Boots recently started putting Nyx counters in their stores and I am over the moon. Nyx has amazing products at an affordable cost. Their liquid lipsticks are some of my favourites so of course I had to pick up a few more.

Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream £5.50. I picked up the shades Cairo and Dubai. The formulation of these is lovely. They are non drying on the lips and they staying power is incredible.

Nyx Liquid Suede £6.50. I picked up the shades Soft Spoken and Sandstorm. Just like the Soft Matte Lip Creams, the formula of these is amazing.

Nyx Lip Lingerie £6.50. I got the shade Corset. If I am being honest, out of the 3 liquid lipsticks that Nyx do, this is probably my least favourite. It can sometimes be slightly patchy but they are still a good affordable option.


I haven’t purchased anything from Sleek for a while now, but boots had a buy one get one half price offer on so had a look and ended up getting a couple of products.

Sleek Solstice Palette £9.99. I have had my eye on this for a while now. The packing is lovely and the highlighters look incredible. When swatched, the colours a so pigmented. I am looking forward to playing with this more.

Sleek Idivine All Night Long Palette £8.99. I used to have quite a few sleek eyeshadow palettes and they are great. If you are looking for an affordable palette, I would highly recommend checking them out. I seen there was a few new eyeshadow palettes out and had to pick one up.


Rimmel Stay Matte Powder £3.99. This was a repurchase. It is one of my all time favourite powders and mine ran out recently so I had to pick another one up.

Rimmel Lasting Finish  Foundation £7.99. I picked this up on a whim as I hadn’t heard anything about it but was looking for a new full coverage foundation so decided to give this a try.

Rimmel Natural Bronzer £5.99. Boots were doing an offer that gave you this free if you spend over £9 on Rimmel products. I am looking forward to giving this a go as I have been looking for a more affordable option to my Mac bronzer.


Maybelline Color Tattoo £4.99. I picked up the shades Creamy Beige, On and On Bronze & Permanent Taupe. Maybelline had a 3 for 2 offer on so I clearly couldn’t control myself and ended up picking up 3. I had been after these for a while now as I think they would be great when I am in a rush and just want a quick sweep of colour over my eyelid.


MUA Ultimate Undressed Palette £8. The MUA eyeshadow palettes are amazing. I used to have the original undressed palette and loved it. The eyeshadows and creamy, pigmented and very bendable, they are also super affordable. I was browsing superdrug and just could not resist picking this up.


I have been on the hunt for new lip liners as the only kind I have tried is Mac, and at £12.50 a pop I can’t really afford to be buying them all the time.

Nyx Slide on Lip Pencil £5.50. I picked up the shade Disco Rage to go with a bright pink lipstick I own. I swatched this and it feels incredible creamy.

Nyx Mechanical Lip Pencil £5.50. I got the shade Natural as have an addiction to nude lipsticks so can never have enough nude lip liners to go with them.

Barry M Lip Liner £3.99. Shade 17. I grabbed this because I watched  a video where Zella wore this with the Nyx Lip Suede in Sandstorm and it look great. So, as I was buying Sandstorm I thought I might as well get this also.


L’Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation £14.99. Cushion foundations have been becoming quite popular recently. I have been after one since they started being released but is has mostly been high end brands releasing them and I just couldn’t justify spending that much on one as I wasn’t sure if I wouldn’t like it because I like a full coverage foundation. So, when L’Oreal released one I new I had to try it. Also, look at that packaging! It’s just adorable.


Soap & Glory Gloss Stick £3.50. I have heard great things about the gloss sticks and at £3.50, why not? I got the shade nudest and thought it would be good when I don’t want to wear a matte lipstick.

Soap & Glory Nudes Collection Lipstick £9. Soap and Glory recently re-released their lipsticks in new packaging and shades. I got the shade Matte Super Nude which is perfect for me. The packaging on these is gorgeous also.


Makeup Revolution Flawless Matte Palette £8. My makeup collection is lacking when it comes to matte shadows, and as I love the makeup revolution palettes I thought this would be perfect.


Alice in Wonderland Makeup Bag £4.Last but defiantly not least, I was strolling around Primark and spotted this makeup bag. I am a huge disney fan so this is perfect for me. Isn’t it just the cutest?

If you would like a review on anything in this haul, let me know. What have you been buying this month?

If you have made it to the end of this blog post well done as it is quite a long one. Thanks for reading.
