Post Essay Treats! | Oh My Haul

So firstly I must apologise for my lack of blogging of late; The Kazlight Anthem had to take a seat on the back burner for a bit whilst I worked on my four essays. As a student first and foremost I do have to prioritise my work! After finally submitting them last night (there's a 1/4 of my degree gone eeeekk!) I felt today was the perfect time to do absolutely nothing at all except treat myself to some new beauty purchases.3 for 2 offers are both heaven and hell for beauty addicts; I went in to The Body Shop to get one thing and yes, came out with 2 other things...

The Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder in 02 fair matte. I saw this bad boy in a recent collaboration with essiebutton and Fleur De Force; Estée said she used this as it was the perfect non brown/orange bronzer which sounded perfect to me! Being from Essex I aim at all costs to avoid any sort of orange or overtly tanned look so this seemed the perfect solution.

As I said 3 for 2 is a dangerous business...

Amelia from Liana Beauty raved about this product (here) and I had been eyeing it up ever since. Despite the fact that I reeeeally didn't need another cleanser...but I am very excited to try this Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil.

I gave up trying to align this...

The final product I picked up was the Extra Virgin Minerals Loose Powder Foundation, SPF 25 in shade 102 Natural Ivory. I really liked the sound as this, as I just mentioned, I'm really not a fan of the very foundationed/-orange face and so really fancied trying a powder foundation. You shake the pot and a small amount of the foundation comes into the top section meaning you only ever have out as much as you need.

This eyeshadow just looked such a lovely colour and the formula felt really nice to try and was so pigmented! I got the shade Platinum Beige and this is the L'Oreal Paris Colour Appeal eyeshadow.

Now I already love these; they are the Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoos and these are incredible. The colour is amazing, the formula is great and they last for ages. (The bit I tested on my hand has still not washed off after numerous attempts!) Not to mention, they're only £4.99 so are a complete bargain! This is the colour On and On Bronze and it is the most gorgeous bronze colour.

And finally I picked up on the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Shadow Sticks. Now I don't really know why it took me so long to pick one of these babies up; Fleur De Force talks about them a lot and they always looks so nice! and are again, so cheap! I picked up the shade 011 Bluffing (can you see a colour theme here...) It's another gorgeous taupe-y brown shade.

I hope you enjoyed seeing the few bits that I picked up and once again I apologise for my lack of blogging! Hopefully this will keep you going for a little while whilst I sort my life out!
Also, currently to join the Love Your Body Body Shop Membership thing... it is currently free for students! I'm not sure if this is in all branches or for how long but this means you get 10% off your first purchase and from then on!

Have you been loving the 3 for 2 offers?
