Primark & Topshop Haul

I'm absolutely loving primark at the moment. I have a love and hate relatioship with it, but as long as you look properly there is always something for everyone. They have so many cute jumpers in just now and they're comparable to Topshop or other more expensive high-end shops. I looove oversized jumpers, while I am normally a regular UK size 8, when I want something oversized I go for Size 14.

Topshop has a sale on just now, and I managed to bag some things I've been wanting to buy. The sailor skirt, I ALMOST bought about a week ago but they didn't have my size so I gave up. However my size came up in the sale ♥

In order of pictures:
* (tempted to call this acid-wash but it's not) grey oversized top from Primark £4
* Topshop navy sailor skirt (preciously £30), down to £18
* Topshop top/dress ( i will wear as a dress ) previously £12, now £8
* Primark nude pink thick woolen jumper (sooo cosy!) £11
* Primark PVC lace up pumps, cute floral interior, £8
* Primark Navy floral bodycon dress (looks so shapeless, but lovely on) £13

I also picked up some jewellery but I'll dedicate a whole new post to that ♥

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick : Pink Blush

I noticed this little gem at a special price of £3.99 at Boots the other day and decided to pick it up. The colour that I was most interested in (amongst others) was Pink Blush which is a lovely blue toned pink (kind of reminds me of the Lady Gaga lippie but slightly darker). It was nearly sold out at my local Boots so I'm chuffed I managed to pick up the second last one or so.

L-R : Swatched heavily, swatched lightly

I didn't find this lipstick either drying or moisturing. It's not matte, it's not pearly. It has some shimmer in it (can be seen in some lighting) but when on the lips the shimmer is gone. So we could say it's technically matte. It lasts quite a fair bit as well - I put it on before napping during the day and 4hrs late I woke and it was still there. Considering that I twist and turn like mad when I sleep this it pretty damn good!
The colour is wearable for the day as well as night because you can either wear it more sheer and build it up for a bold statement lip.

I think that for £3.99 you can't go wrong with this little beauty.

Just a quick post today,I decided to keep it simple-ish today but I'm wearing more make-up than during the week so it still feels kind of special to be wearing eyeliner and highlighter and so on! I'm heading out into town with a friend for some good old retail-therapy (not so much for me because I'll only be spectating as I'm saving money for Student Nights at Topshop on the 5th and 6th of October, in case you're not aware of this click here)
