Haul!!! And have busted by Beauty Diet!

Hello all!  Confession time!  I've been naughty and have spent all of the £100 budget on random make-up I set myself - it was supposed to last until the end of November!  So unless I'm VERY good until then, I've failed the challenge I set myself - about 3 weeks ago!  I might have a bit of a problem...  I've also bought a few other bits and pieces as well.

First of all today I went shoe shopping!  Well a girl can never have enough shoes can she?  I'm planning to wear one pair of these for a Burlesque/Circus night I'm going to in October, so I really needed them!  I haven't decided which pair to wear yet.

These were on sale from Nine West - aren't they gorgeous?
These were on offer from Miss KG - I love them!
So, that's about £100 lighter on two pairs of shoes that caught my eye in Debenhams.  Hmmmm.

Next, I bought the High Street 'It' bag of the season, this fabulous satchel from River Island.  I can see myself using it every day, and it's also a practical style, so I didn't mind shelling out £34.99 too much!


I also spotted this great scarf with skeleton faces on it in River Island - at about £15, I thought it was lovely and quite Alexander McQueen-like, so I picked it up.


It has heart beads sewn onto the ends!
Moving onto makeup, I stopped by the MAC counter at Debenhams and bought this Superslick Liquid Eyeliner in 'Desires and Devices' from the Fabulous Felines Collection.  I was tempted by this, or by 'Treat me nice' which is a slightly more teal type green, but I went for this one in the end.


I also ventured into Superdrug to look at the GOSH range of nail polishes, as I'd been hearing such good things about it!  I wanted to buy Rainbow, and got the only bottle they had there.  I also bought Gypsy Blue, as it looked so pretty.

I also went shopping last weekend (I know, I know I'm so bad) and got the YSL Manicure Couture Duo in Belle De Nuit that I've been coveting for ages.  I only bought it as I was waiting to get served at the No 7 counter, and my attention wandered to the YSL counter... dangerous!

Is this a typo on the box?  ManUcure Couture?
The photo doesn't do the colours justice.
Finally, I did get served at No 7, and bought the limited edition Smoky Eye Liner.  So far, I love this product, it's so easy to apply.  The only draw-back is a slight transferance to my upper lids, but nothing I can't live with! I can see it being a firm favourite all through the autumn and winter.  Let's hope they make it permanent and introduce more colours!


So that's it for my confessional - make-up budget all spent!  I've also got a lot of products from Revlon's autumn collection, but I'll post these separately.  It's not all bad though - I'm doing well with the non-makeup related products in my Beauty Diet.

Thanks for reading!  xx

Awesome goodies though, well worth shattering the diet! Which Superdrug did you get Rainbow from? I've been checking the Mall at every visit but no joy :(

I got the last bottle in the Broadmead Superdrug! I did look for another as I wanted to include it in my forth-coming 50 subscribers giveaway, but they only had one! xx
