Outfit, face and mini haul

Hey guys!

So I've managed to get my camera working again, yippee! So I can finally get some better quality pictures, however I still have no idea where to place it for outfit pictures so it's gonna have to be rubbish mirror ones. I literally have nowhere high enough to put it on and noone to take pictures of me, I may invest in a shelf..

Today I went for lunch with my best friend who I hadn't seen in two weeks which is ridiculous for us! We also ended up popping into the shops because we just can't resist, even when I shouldn't be spending money.

Blouse - Primark | Skirt - New Look (belt included) | Blazer - Primark
Bralet underneath blouse - New Look | Cross necklace - Primark (with my courage ring added onto it)
I plaited my hair when wet and left it to dry, clipped up the front and voila
Double finger cross ring - Ebay
Moustache ring - River Island (for Movember)

Estee Lauder Double-wear foundation in 2W1
E.l.f. coverstick in 'Apricot Beige' under eyes
LUSH colour supplement in 'Light Yellow' on red cheeks and the scar on my nose
Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in 'Peach Glow' 
GOSH Bronzing Pearls
Revlon blush in 'Berry Rich'
Natural Collection eye shadow in 'Crushed Walnut' in eyebrows
E.l.f. clear mascara on eyebrows
E.l.f. eyelid primer
Natural Collection eye shadow in 'Barley'
MUA eyeshadow in 'Pearl'
E.l.f. liquid liner
Rimmel Soft Kohl eye liner
Natural Collection LashBuild mascara
E45 lip balm

These pictures were actually taken after I went out as I didn't have time before hand, so you can see how well these products last! Also why I'm wearing the earrings I bought whilst out.. So onto the few bits I bought at the shops...

Primark - £1 | I love this colour! I'm not a huge fan of silver and gold looked a bit funny with my hair, then I spotted these. Perfect.
Primark - £1.50 | For when I clip up my big bun
Primark - £1 | My friend has this and really likes it so I thought it would be interesting to test out
Primark - £2.50 | I saw this on a beauty youtubers video (I can't remember whos!) so wanted to try it out!
Superdrug - £4 | I gave one of these away in my giveaway but forgot to pick one up for myself! I'm so excited to try this, especially as I've seen it talked about as a cheaper version of the naked palette!
So that's everything I bought, I've noticed when I try not to spend money I just end up buying cheaper things thinking i'm being good when really it probably all adds up.. But hey I'd say £10 for all this is pretty good! Have you tried the MUA Heaven and Earth palette? What do you think of it?
