'I'm so stressed, I need new makeup' haul!

Hello! ♥

I've written up several posts but I really don't like the way they've been written so I thought I'd quickly share my haul from the past month. 
I've been so stressed recently because my exams start in two weeks (yikes) and obviously the first thing I did was purchase new makeup to help myself feel a little better!

From Superdrug, I repurchased my Maybelline FIT Me powder, which I absolutely love!
I never even realised I wanted to use a sponge to apply my makeup until I ended up with the BeautyBlender on my 'wishlist', so I've decided to purchase the drugstore alternative, the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge which everyone seems to love anyways.

Maybelline Fit Me Powder Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge Wet n Wild Cinnamon Spice

You may or may not know that I purchased a few Wet n Wild lipsticks last year, and unfortunately they didn't arrive so I ended up getting a Wet n Wild lipstick in 'Cinnamon Spice' from eBay. I was expecting this to be quite brownish, but even though the shade is nothing like what I expected, it's still such a 'me' shade!

I also purchased the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer from FeelUnique and omg it is AMAZING!! I can't get over how amazing it is! A full review should be up soon!

Urban Decay Naked Skin foundation concealer

I've been dying for a new foundation recently and the Debenhams 10% off sale came at exactly the right time! I literally couldn't pick which foundation to get, and opted for the Urban Decay Naked Skin foundation. I bought this without reading any reviews at all, but I'm so excited to use it! (I was filled with joy when I got home and realised I now have the same concealer and foundation lol!)

Urban Decay Naked Skin foundation MAC lipstick Captive MAC lipliner Morning Coffee Burts Bees mango lip balm

I picked up MAC 'Captive' lipstick which is a lipstick that has been constantly on and off my list, so I finally ended up purchasing it! I also ended up getting the MAC Pro LongWear lip pencil in 'Morning Coffee' which is a beauuuutiful shade! Honestly, I feel that the quality of MAC lipstick and lipliners isn't amazing, but they have the most prettiest shades which always draws me in.

I was shopping in Holland and Barrett recently and my friend ended up convincing me that Burt's Bees lip balms are the greatest, so I picked up the Burt's Bees Nourishing Mango Butter Lip Balm. I was expecting it to smell super yummy, but it doesn't :( I've already tried it once and it's so hydrating! 

I've purchased a few other things but I've already used them and so they weren't all in the same place when I was taking pictures. I'm sure I'll end up reviewing those other products anyways so it'll definitely end up on my blog somehow :')

What have you bought on your latest shopping trip?
Let me know if there's anything you want me to review!

Thanks for reading, Thahira x
