Exam Stress Haul

I really shouldn't be allowed to shop, it's not like I have the money to :P Luckily for me (and my need to shop) I found some bargains on cheapsmells.com (which isn't the most appealing name in the world...). I can't remember their exact prices but all three of these were £23 including P&P. Not too bad I'd say.



Firstly I got this Mac blush in Sincere. It's a dark peachy colour and I thought it'd be a good summer contour colour. When I looked at it on the website I wasn't really interested, but I googled swatches and thought it'd be perfect for me :)


Next I got one of my favourite Benefit products ever, a creaseless cream in Sippin' N' Dippin'. It's such a pretty coraly colour * _ * I'd been wanting a coral for summer and creaseless creams are my favourite things ever, so I had to have it, totally justifiable.



Finally (I'm quite proud of my restraint really) I got my first ever Benefit lipstick in No Competition. It's a GORGEOUS vampy dark red. It's so pretty. I've been obsessed with vampy lips for a while, (mainly due to Lousie from Made In Chelsea looking gorgeous with them in Season 2) but I've always been a bit nervy with bold lips. This is just too gorgeous to not wear though!



I would say I've been very restrained with my shopping...but I am waiting for a couple more packages to arrive in the post! Oh dear....

Exam in 3 days, and 12 lectures to revise...completely do-able :D
