As some of you may know I got back from Florida last week and after coming to terms with the fact I was back in cold England and catching up on my sleep I'm finally getting round to showing you guys what I bought!

I just knew before I even saw a Bath and Body Works that I would be picking up so of their hand sanitizers and little clip to go on the side of a bag. These were so cheap I think it was like 5 for $6 and the clip was under $3. I picked all festivey type scents apart from one which is the pink cupcake one and it's literally just a cupcake in a bottle. That's the one I'm using at the moment and I love it! I don't know why we don't sell these clips here because they make finding your hand sanitizer so bloody easy.

These were my big purchases of the trip as such, I could have gotten so much but I stuck to the rule of if you can get it at home you can leave it. I know you can get Kat Von D here if you try but not as easy as it was to just walk into Sephora. First of all I picked up the Lock N Load Setting Spray- which I did use when I was in America and it passed the hot weather and wearing all day test! 

The second thing I've picked up was the infamous Shade & Light contour kit- I will admit I only chose this over the ABH kit because I've heard that the banana powder is a lot more brightening. Now I obviously can't compare it to that kit, but compared to the banana powders I've used it really is so brightening! 

First of all I'm just going to say there is no way I actually needed all 3 of these. I'll start with the Maybelline Matte & Poreless Fit Me you can get the original Fit Me over here but the matte & poreless is a new release and before I went it was all over my youtube with everyone doing reviews on it so I picked it up. I haven't actually used it yet but it doesn't have a pump which annoys me but hopefully the foundation will make up for it.

Secondlly I got Maybelline Better Skin which you can get here but it's in a different bottle. I've heard that this is a dupe for Estee Lauder Double Wear which I bloody love so that's the only reason I picked this up, I thought I'd picked a good match until I compared it to the other foundations (all three are from different stores) so it is rather dark but for when I'm tanned it'll be perfect!

Lastly I picked up Covergirl Outlast 3-in-1 foundation, this is what I've been using since being back and I am obsessed, I got a pretty much perfect colour match, the foundation itself is amazing! I could talk about this foundation for ages so I'll save that for another blog post. I hope there's a way I can get it here though because it truely is amazing and I'm petrified of running out haha.

From the NYX stand in Ulta I picked up quite a few bits for myself and my sister because they had a 3 for 2 boots style deal on and we all know how dangerous they are.. To start with I picked up their Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk, this was an obvious choice for me because I can never get hold of it here and I just needed to see what the fuss was about. I then picked up the HD Studio Finishing Powder this was a choice completely influenced by Amy Macedo who said in one of her drugstore dupes for high end products that this powder was just as good as the Laura Mercier one, I've yet to try it to I can't comment! Lastly I got the HD Photogenic Concealer, this is bloody amazing! Without a doubt the best concealer I've ever used sorry collection 2000.

Lastly I picked up Purity One Step Cleanser, I haven't even tried this yet so you'll have to keep your eye's peeled for a review of that. To finish up I finally got a MAC 217, it's so soft and I love it. There isn't much else I can say about it really!
