Oxford Street Cosmetics & Confectionery Haul

I've done it again. And by I've done it again, I mean I have bought every product imaginable on pay day and feel incredibly guilty/ecstatic about it!

Believe it or not, this haul was actually the last of the day for me; however, as it included a couple of my essential go-to make-up products, it was actually the most important spree. Or that's what I'm telling myself anyway!

I'm so excited to show you what I bought, so I'll just get straight to it.


Guerlain Parure De Lumiere Cream Foundation in 02 Beige Clair

Those of you who have been following my blog for a while will recognise this product, as I bought it a couple of months ago. I decided to repurchase this foundation as I totally love everything about it - from the packaging to the formula, it really is such a dream to use and works so well with my Real Techniques Stippling Brush.

It does come at a pricy £38.50, but as it was 10% off on all beauty products at John Lewis today I got it for £34.65. Although 38 smackers is a lot to fork out on a foundation, it lasts so long and is really hydrating. 

Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream 

I've been on the hunt for a new eye cream, and this one has had rave reviews. However, the first thing I thought when I saw this was OH MY GOD IT'S TINY. I did question the purchase because of the 15ml size, but as I spend a lot on my skin care anyway, I thought I would go for it and take the risk.

But I'm really glad I did, because as soon as I used the tiniest amount of this luscious lotion around my eyes, it instantly revitalised the area. I also massively overestimated how much product I needed for both eyes, so you don't need much at all per application. Which is just as well as it cost me almost £19!

Topshop Metallic Two Tone Nail Polish in Mermaid

It's official - I'm in love! This polish is just so gorgeous. You really can't fault topshop when it comes to nail colours and this one couldn't be more bang on. It costs £6 and must be popular as it's actually sold out on the John Lewis website at the moment. I'll definitely be trying this out for an NOTD post in the near future.

Benefit Fake Up Hydrating Crease-Control Concealer

I won't bother describing this product to you, as it really needs no introduction. Everyone who tweets me will know that Erase Paste is my go-to concealer, but as I love hydrating products I thought it was time to try Fake Up. My only bug bear with the Benefit concealers is the price - I feel like it should be at least £10 cheaper than its current retail price of £18.50. But I can't wait to do my make-up tomorrow so I can try this beauty out.


I also had a bit too much fun in Kingdom of Sweets. I just love retro sweets and have a bit of a soft spot for Lucky Charms cereal!

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bites

Peanut Butter? Check. Chocolate? Check. Cookie Dough? Check.

Is this what dreams are made of? I totally love cookie dough and Reese's cups, so the combination of both is totally rocking my world!

Extra Dessert Delights, Lemon Square

I just had to pick up one of the Extra Dessert packs - there were so many to choose from (including mint choc chip and orange creme) and they are just so different.

Ice Breakers Sugar-Free Mints

I love mints in all shapes and sizes, so I thought I'd give Ice Breakers a shot. I was a bit disturbed by the overwhelming dentist smell before I even opened the packet, but at least I can be sure they will be fresh!

What do you think of my cosmetics and confectionery haul? xxx


  1. Oohhh, I've always wondered about erase paste! Is it really the cure to serious dark circles? :)

    1. It is very good! Fake up is good too but it's more about hydration than coverage - so erase paste is still my fave :) x

  2. Erase paste looks great! I have eye zings but stopped using it, oops!

    Love the candy haul too!


    1. Haha it's difficult to use just one product when the world is full of them! Aww thanks xxx

  3. great haul - i have been wanting to try that origins cream, I love their stuff :)

    1. The origins cream really is lovely - i couldn't believe what a difference it made to my under-eye area. recommend it :) x

  4. Some gorgeous stuff here, that nail polish looks beauuuutiful x

    1. It really is! I've just tried it and it's absolutely stunning. Needed 2 coats x

  5. When you said 38 smackers is a lot to fork out for a foundation I read it as lip smackers! True addict right here!
    Midnight Violets Beauty Blog

    1. Haha aww lip smackers - love them! It probably does cost 38 lip smackers though doesn't it :) xxx
