Edinburgh Haul!

So I mentioned the other day that I wanted to do a post showing you all a few things that I picked up whilst in Edinburgh a couple of weeks ago.

I finally picked up the Topshop highlighter in 'Crescent Moon', I had been torn as to whether to get this, as at the time I was being good and not spending too much. However, I knew that I didn't have any highlighters amongst my make-up collection so in the end that thought won me over. If I remember rightly this cost me £10, I checked the website for prices but unfortunately it is not on there; only Sunbeam is currently listed.

I also picked up the No7 Deco Darling Limited Edition Glitter Top Coat in 'Gold' which I missed out on last year; I didn't want to miss it this time around so I quickly snapped this up. At the moment I'm not 100% sure about Boots in terms of Cruelty Free, I'm hoping to be contacting them later this week about it. This nail polish cost £5.50, there is also a light pink one which looks really nice.

The Boots where I live at university does not stock Models Own so I waited until I paid my visit to Edinburgh to pick up a couple of the polishes from the Mirrorball Collection. I picked up from left to right, 'Dancing Queen, Freak Out and Disco Inferno', these are really nice however they do smell very strong! Models Own polishes cost £5, I think they're pretty decent too as there is such a huge variety of shades.

The last thing I picked up was a pack of muslin cloths from Liz Earle at John Lewis. I knew that I would be very soon opening my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish as my No7 Hot Cloth Cleanser was almost spent. This pack of 2 cost £4 which I think is pretty reasonable as having used other muslin cloths in the past I know that they have never been as nice as those from Liz Earle.

Have you treated yourself recently?
