oxford street small haul

forever 21 hot pink vest top - £3.75
rimmel 1000 kisses lip pen in 120 timeless tango - £4.99
lush eau roma water toner - £3.75
pull and bear studded jeggings - £20

On Saturday I went Oxford St shopping with my two friends Rosie and Vickey to celebrate their birthdays, which were both last week. I went there knowing I needed to buy a pair of jeans, a pink top and a toner and managed to get all of them! The Pull & Bear jeggings are amazing, bought them for £10 off and when I tried them on they fit perfectly. After spending time ooh-ing and aah-ing at the clothes on their website I am obsessed!

Rimmel's 1000 kisses lip pens were on sale at Boots, £2 off to a reasonable £5. I've never tried a lip pen before, I've tried one stain, Posie tint by Benefit, yet never one in a felt-tip form. This one quickly caught my attention and was the last one in the shop left! Rosie & I had to fight over it. They also have a few lighter colours, including a pretty peachy-pink colour which I may pick up sometime.

The current toner I'm using is by L'Occitane, that came free with Glamour magazine a month or so back. It's really nice, but retails for £11 for quite a small bottle of 50ml. For reference, it's this one. Anyway, I went into Lush (the Regent St store) and all of them are so nice! I don't think I've ever seen a rude sales assistant at Lush but I do find them to be quite, all-up-in-your-business! So I asked a lady about teenage skin products, and she recommended Cupcake and Cosmetic Warrior face masks, and some of the toners. After telling her about my skin type she recommended me this one, which I bought 100g of it for £3.75. I'm really happy with it, I've used it a few times now and I find it really hydrating without it being damp. It comes in spray form as well, which is brilliant as I won't overuse it and it will last me a reasonable length of time.

Lastly I have a pink vest top from Forever 21. I rarely wear pink, but am doing the Race for Life with my mum on Sunday so I needed something to wear for it! It was a bargainous £3.75 from their essentials range and is a nice enough cut that I can see myself possibly wearing it again during the summer, despite it's pretty loud hue.

Have you bought anything nice recently? tried any Lush skincare?
