I have another haul post for you today! It's kind of funny really, I've been loving everything pictured above so much lately, so this could count as a 'favourites of the month' as well? Anyway, I've done quite some shopping so let's have a look at what I've bought!

My favourite one out of the bunch is without a doubt Clarins' Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in Candy Shimmer (you can still enter my Clarins giveaway *click here*!!). This has been my go-to lip product ever since I got it. The weather's been lovely and this gel/balm hybrid just gives my lips that extra oomph. Another product from Clarins is their Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch primer, which blurs out imperfections effortlessly and creates a flawless base before applying foundation. I love this primer because it makes my skin feel really soft.

I also went to the MAC counter. I needed a new concealer after a small crisis (I had run out of Bourjois Healthy Mix and couldn't find them anywhere, so I bought a random one by Maybelline because I was in a rush. Turned out it was too orange! The horror...) and got the Pro Longwear concealer to make sure that this time the colour would match my skin tone. I got matched with NW15. Tip: The assistant said she chose a concealer with cool, pink undertones because it would do the best job at covering up my dark under-eye circles. For foundation I'd probably need NC15 (= yellow undertones). I also bought the Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle. I've wanted it for ages and after all the work I've been doing at uni lately I felt like I deserved a treat. I've been using this so much since I got it. Sunshine + Soft and Gentle = the prettiest highlight for spring. Another most used product is this cream blush by Bourjois. They're really easy to blend into the skin and the finish is subtle enough to give your cheeks that impression of a natural flush.

When I was in Eindhoven last month, I bought a bottle of Philosophy's Purity Made Simple. This multifunctional facial cleanser has been my evening make up remover/cleanser for about 2 weeks now and so far I like it.

Last but not least, I got some non beauty things too! A while back I spotted the new Combined Office Citybag at Zara and fell in love. I was pretty disappointed when their famous city bags (in 2012 I think?) sold out right after I had decided I wanted one, so when I saw these I didn't hesitate and got the grey/white variation! It comes with a black clutch, which you can leave in the bag or use on its own. And speaking of the famous Zara city bag... The black bag on the right is a City Bag lookalike from Primark! It cost 15 euros so you can't expect the same lasting quality, but I think Primark did well! I've been carrying this bag around everywhere in the past couple weeks. I also bought a new Carhartt beanie. It was on my Christmas wishlist, so it was probably about time I got it. Plus it was pouring down, one of the few times in Belgium in the past month, so another excuse why I needed it!

Have you gone shopping lately?
