Haul | Recent Beauty Purchases

Recently I seem to have picked up a good few beauty products so I thought it was only right to do a haul. This will be the last haul until I go to London and Paris at the end of the month (hopefully!). 
First thing I have isn't actually a beauty purchase but I picked up this mint note books from Staples the other day for blog ideas. They're so lovely and soft, the range was created by Martha Stewart and everything is buy one get one free at the moment so if you need some notebooks I would definitely recommend these. 
I finally found the Real Techniques Duo Fiber Collection in my local Boots. These are limited edition so of course I had to get them. I've been using them for a week and so far I love them but expect a full review soon. 
The other week Illamasqua had 50% off everything for a day so of course I had to make an order. The first thing I got was the Cream Blusher in Dixie which is a lovely pink shade which adds a lovely healthy glow to the cheeks. The other thing I picked up was the Cream Pigment in Androgen which is a lovely peachy coral shade which can be used in the face, lips, body and eyes! 
As you can see i'm a little obsessed with cream products at the moment. The first thing I picked up on a recent trip to Boots is the Revlon Photoready Cream Blush in Coral Reef, this is a cream to powder formula and is a bright coral shade. Something i've been wearing everyday since I got it is the Bourjous Bronzing Primer, this is so easy to apply and gives a natural bronzed look to the face. Finally I got the Stila Convertible Color in Gladiola, which is another lovely orangey coral shade. Clearly I have a thing for coral at the moment. 
Some body products I picked up recently, first being the Nivea In Shower Body Moisturiser Skin Conditioner. This is an interesting product in which you apply in the shower then rinse off and you don't have to moisturise when you get out. I've only used this once but so far I do like it. The next thing I got was the Sanctuary Body Moisture Spray. This is a light oil which you can spray on after a shower or bath to moisturise the skin. Again I haven't used this a lot yet but so far so good. Finally I have the Nspa Jojoba and White Vanilla Foaming Bath Milk. I saw this in Asda and thought I would give it a go since it was really cheap, i've been really impressed with this because it smells lovely and is so relaxing. 
I did a post on Sinful Colors Arriving In Boots, these polishes finally arrived in the UK and for £1.99 i'm really impressed with them. The first shade I got was Hazard which is a pastel peach shade. The next is Big Daddy which is a deep orange shade. The next is Thimbleberry which is a lovely flamingo pink shade. Finally I got Boom Boom which is a bright pinky purple shade. 
Finally I made an Escentuals order, this is one of my favourite website because they're always cheaper than everywhere else and the service is always great. The first thing I got was the Clarins Instant Light Complexion Perfector in Rose Shimmer, I've been after a radiance primer for a while and decided to try this one. It's is a lovely pearly pink shade with no chunky glitter in it. The other thing I got was the Vichy DermaBlend Fluid Corrective Foundation, i've heard that this is great to use as a concealer for covering blemishes and scarring. I've only used it twice and so far it definitely does that. Expect a review soon. 

So that's my recent beauty purchases, I hope you like it. As I said there will be not spending until London and Paris now but I do have lots of products to try out at the moment so it's not all bad. If there is any of these products you want to see a review of first let me know.
