Haul - Nasty Gal, Nike, YSL Make Up...

I made a order about a week ago and although estimated delivery time was 2-3 weeks, I got it in 1, which immediately made me impressed as I have always loved the clothes on but never taken the plunge. I always think that buying clothes internationally will cost too much money or be too complicated but I am very pleased with the way this worked out.

Overall, including postage and my two sale items, my order came to about £25/$40- which is crazy cheap, especially considering the items were both about $50 each to begin with.

First off I got this Button Up Bustier for $15 in a size M. I think this will look really nice with high waisted trousers or a simple skirt- it is such a bright colour that really it should be doing all the talking. Considering I have never ordered from before I didn't know how the sizing worked and I would say that the sizes run slightly bigger than UK sizes, and I would have probably gotten this in a size S. However, I do really like it and the fact that it is slightly loose isn't really a problem for me. (This is still in stock on the website 28/7/12)

The next thing I got from is this Zipped Scuba Skirt (Coral) for $10. The material is literally like scuba diving clothes which is odd but I love it because it's a bit different from anything you get in Topshop or any of the other boring chain stores we get in the UK. Usually I find tight skirts like these ones a little bit too short whereas this one comes to just above the knees which is a bit more flattering and means you don't have to pull it down every 5 seconds.

I got the YSL Touche Eclat foundation! My shade is BD40 which I based on Iben's (check her YouTube channel out!) skin tone because I figured my skin tone is pretty much the same as hers (stupid way of choosing a shade I know) and I asked my mum to get it for me so I kind of had to just assume that would be my shade. It is actually a perfect colour match for me and has quickly become my favourite foundation and the only one I am using at the moment. It just really adds a lovely glow to your complexion and it is really light on the skin. I don't usually need much coverage so this is great for everyday use and you don't really need to use a highlighter with this because it adds so much light to your face.

The last thing I bought recently are these Nike shoes I got from Barcelona. They were the last in my size and were €60 down from about €85. I absolutely love them!

I hope you are all having a great summer :)

  1. Lovely haul hun, I really want to try that YSL foundation:)

    1. It is the best foundation I think I have ever tried :)

  2. I'm using a little sample of the YSL foundation that Sally gave me and I'm liking it! Veryyyyy similar to Bourjois Healthy Mix though I think xx

    1. I prefer it to healthy mix because it's more shinyyyy and I have super dry skin :)
