Okay, another massive spending spree, pretty much all my posts came in a few days between each other and I have been saving them up for a "bigger than a mini haul" post because a mini haul isn't really a haul and I really like the word haul.
Anyway, the first thing I got was from a blog sale. I have NARS Super Orgasm Illuminator and Maybelline Color Tattoo in On & on Bronze. I never own a single NARS product before and it's worth a try and I have been wanting to get the Color Tattoo for ages.
The next lot of stuff is from Fragrance Direct because people been raving about Essie polishes and I'm very uneasy about spending over £5 for nail polishes because I have a tendency of painting my nails about 4-5 times because the colours aren't right for my mood or they aren't smooth enough. So, I brought myself some Revlon polish in Demure (coral), Essie base coat, Essie in Navigate Me (green), Mini How High (pink)and Case Study (Khaki brown). Also some fake eyelashes because my lashes are pretty much non existent.

Then a few days later ASOS was having 25% student discount and 20% off beauty products. I have been lusting after Korres Lip Butter in Mango for ages so I thought there is no better chance to get it than right now. But I decided that I probably will need something to wear too. I brought Influence Jegging in Coral but it doesn't look that great on me so I'm returning it. I'm loving the Hi-Lo skirt/dress at the moment (they are so popular in Thailand) and I saw this black one from River Island. I thought it'd look nice for a casually cool look so I'm definitely keeping this. ASOS also added a little something in my package too, which is the Multivitamins in mango flavour. I really like this actually because I have to take quite a lot of vitamins supplements because I get ill very easily (damn, immune system).
Right after I ordered from ASOS, Debenhams was having 10% off beauty department and MAC is in their beauty department. I never really see MAC being discounted (apart from at airport or in fragrance direct ages ago). I thought I would treat myself to MAC blush and lipstick. I got the blush in Melba which is absolutely gorgeous soft coral-peach. I brought my first ever MAC lipstick in Costa Chic too (frosty light coral). I think I'm coral obsessed. Debenhams added a little something from Lancome for me to try as well. I don't really know what it is but seeing as I haven't tried anything from Lancome before, I'm happy.
Overall, I don't think I have done too badly. Fair enough, I have spent quite a lot but I know that no one is buying me birthday present this year (my mum is giving me money to buy myself something). Not that I want people buying me things but you only turn 21 once, you might as well buy yourself loads of things. If you aren't nice to yourself, who's going to be nice to you, right?
Did you take advantage of the recent flash sale?
What did you get?
I love reading haul posts!
