February 2014 Shopping Haul

♫ Imagine Dragons - Demons

While listening to Imagine Dragon's "Demons", I'm more than a little convinced that shopping, retail therapy and impulse purchases are legit demons. Well, since 'I can't escape this now', I might as well embrace it while I can and share with you some of my purchases in February.

Red cropped cardigan from Cotton On (RM 30) and H&M skater skirt (RM 15). That skirt is seriously bargain-hunting at its best - good quality and fits perfectly. I really need to wear skirts more often. (⌒_⌒;)

Lipstick from TopShop (RM 29) and eyeshadow from Etude House (RM 9.90). I love sales. The purple lipstick looks kinda scary but I tried it on the back of my hand at the store and it's actually quite pretty. Also, my new motto is "If it looks scary in the tube, just go ombre on the lips". (≧∇≦) The Etude House eyeshadow was a pleasant surprise. It's a shimmery orangey red with great colour payoff. Will be reviewing both of these later on.

Forever21 accessories
I might have gone a little crazy with accessories from Forever 21.

This necklace (RM 15) and earrings (RM 15) are the only items I bought at full price. I just couldn't resist the heart, bow, and mint combo.

Ring (RM 5), flower headband (RM 10) and black diamante wrap bracelet (RM10; pictured above). Again, yay for discounted items! The ring goes perfectly with the mint necklace/earring set, and I've had my eye on that flower headband for a while now. *coughhipstercough* The wrap bracelet is totally my usual style though.

Not strictly part of the haul since I won it from Mina magazine. ^^;; Still, I've always wanted to try Ma Cherie products, and now I can! (≧∇≦)

I'll leave you with this fakehipster photo using - what else? - the flower headband and multiple filters. And I may or may not be showing off my nail art HAHAHAHAHA

I've heard great things about Top Shop makeup. You're really rocking that Pantone Color of the Year vibe with the lipstick. What do you think of the purple that's available in the Revlon Matte Balm then?
And love the flowers in the hair.

Shop Girl: I haven't actually tried the lipstick on my lips yet, so I can't tell how well it'll go, haha~ As for the Revlon balm, I have yet to try any, but I've read some good reviews about those. And thank you for the compliment! :)
