Beauty Haul - Debenhams and Boots

I like shopping but I'm not really one to splurge. I'm a good saver and usually feel guilty if I spend too much on unnecessary items! I have mentioned before that I live in a small city and the makeup counters available are limited. Recently it was announced that Urban Decay was going to launch in my local Debenhams and I just had to go to the launch and abuse my credit card!
Naked Skin Liquid Foundation £27 I hadn't intended to buy anything, least of all a foundation but I got talked into having this tried on my skin and fell in love. The shade is perfect for my skin, where normally I go for a slightly darker shade. The foundation looks really natural on and I can't wait to get using it.
Baked Bronzer - Gilded £20 This bronzer was also tested on my skin and I love how subtle it is. Being a baked bronzer this can be used wet or dry so I'm looking forward to experimenting with it.
24/7 Concealer £12 When this was tried on my skin I was instantly in love. This is the perfect concealer for under eye and is a light shade for brightening.

What's worse for your bank balance than going into Boots? Going in with another beauty blogger! I went for a coffee with Becca from Perfectly Polished Paws and afterwards we went for a wander round Boots. Now I have to say that Becca was naughtier than me, but I did still end up with a few bits in my basket!
Revlon Cream Blush in Charmed Enchantment £7.99 I have been after a new cream blush since I bought my Real Teachniques stippling brush and spotted this one from Revlon. I haven't tried many Revlon products but this is a lovely shade and I just had to pick it up.
Collection Work the Colour Eyeshadow Pencil in Vanilla Sky £3.19 I have another of these pencils in a light pink colour and I really like it. I was using it daily until it wore down and, rather stupidly, I didn't realise you can sharpen them! They sharpen really well and now that I know this, I decided to buy another!
Rimmel Scandaleyes Nude Liner £2.99 I have been meaning to pick this up for a while but either forget or find it out of stock. I'm glad to have it now and look forward to using it to brighten my eyes.
Seventeen Superlash Mascara and Liner £4.99 Becca recommended this to me so I decided to pick it up. The mascara will normally be £6.99 but is on introductory offer and comes with the liner for free! Definitely a bargain and I can't wait to try it.
Radox Muscle Therapy Bath Soak £1 I needed some more bubble bath and saw these on half price. I have had a sore back recently so decided to try this muscle therapy blend for a change.
Boots Essentials Eye Make-up Remover Gel £1.50 This is a repurchase and one I will keep on buying! It does the job, it's gentle on my eyes and it's cheap!

I'm moving house next month and will be tight for bedroom space in my new house. To accommodate my growing makeup collection, I recently purchased the IKEA Alex 9 drawer for my new place! So excited about getting it up!
Have you spent too much money recently?!
