Stradivarius Haul | Buys

The comeback post.
So Stradivarius finally came to London Oxford Street & I had to go have a look! I've only been waiting for them to come closer to me than Stratford Westfield (because that is not a place for me) forever so I headed straight there on its second day of opening. The store appears to attract the Bershka customer who wants to ease into the Zara style, meeting nicely in the middle. There was so much choice that I had to control myself as I went into the fitting room (where the lovely Andrea wrote my name on the outside mirror) and downsize my choices. I knew this bomber jacket was to be added to my collection ever since I saw Shirley B Eniang feature it on her channel. The striped bodysuit is a personal fav of all my purchases, paired with some slim fit trousers or a nice pair orfjeans it will be perfect for summer. I can't wait to wear it!

The diffuser is very good, I opened it and was wondering what the smell was from across my room and didn't realise it travelled that far. Definitely worth £9.99. If you happen to pop in store smell the 'Tangy Orange Juice' candle, AHHHMAAAZINGG!

A/W Nails: Miss Sporty Check Matte

It's officially winter, forget autumn. Winter has arrived in London.
All of a sudden it's jacket & scarf cold.
Some of my favourite colours during Autumn/Winter are burgundy & maroon. Lip products, nail polishes & clothes.
Recently I found myself being drawn in to Superdrug due to their big 3 for 2 offer on all their cosmetics, nails and lashes and picked up some Miss Sporty polishes. One of them being this gorgeous maroon shade. As part of the 'Check Matte' collection, it applies nicely and dries instantly to give a sleek matte finish, which I love! I've never tried this colour on my nails before but I'm so glad I picked this one up for £1.99.

I decided that I missed false nails so this was the perfect time to test out this new colour. I also purchased another shade which I will share in another post. I've received so many compliments from wearing this nail colour, it's such a different colour for nails but looks so good on. Although real life black girl struggles occur when I grease my hair and touch it which turns the matte nails to shiny, slightly defeating the purpose but hey, still a lovely product!

New In: Lipstick Haul

Left: Makeup Revolution Lipstick in 'Rebel With Cause'
Top to Bottom: Primark PS Love Liquid Lipstick in 'Nude'
MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer in 'Kooky'
Makeup Revolution Salvation Velvet Lacquer in 'Velvet Rebel'

When it comes to makeup, I just about do my eyebrows nowadays if I have time. However, I've been loving the sudden surge of liquid lipstick products on the beauty market lately. The easy application of a lipgloss with the finish of a lipstick. Perfect! So I've decided that I want to get into lip products more because I can't have carmex as the only thing I use for life. My current favourite lip combo is L.A Girl Lipliner in Cocoa combined with NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in 'Stockholm' which is the perfect nude lip for me. 
I picked up these four products; three from Superdrug and one from Primark. Makeup Revolution has always caught my eye due to their palettes so I gave them a look. The two products I found are pretty similar in their colour which is like a dark fuschia pink, this is probably why the names are similar. One being a lipstick (which smells like Refresher sweets) and the other a matte liquid lipstick (which does not smell nice). The PS Love liquid lipstick, a pinkish nude, was a random purchase in Primark because I wanted to try it out, I don't like the gloss on this one and the brush is tiny so it's hard to apply. Kooky by MUA, a dark purple colour, is something I have wanted for so long now but it's always out of stock in my local Superdrug, turns out they changed their packaging and brought it back again in Marble Arch's store so I was so happy to finally get it. 
I won't go into much detail as I'm not that clued up on these kind of things but if I find anymore I'll be sure to post them here.
