Whats in my makeup bag?

I'm one of those people who doesn't wear lots of makeup on a daily basis. However if i'm going out somewhere I do like to make more of an effort.

I use all of these but normally I only use one liquid foundation and sometimes  use the creme puff as well...
MaXFactor lasting performance (Natural Beige 106)
MaXFactor colour adapt (Natural 70)
MaXFactor Creme Puff Pressed Powder

I like to try out a variety of eyeliners until I find one that I love..

Shopping instead of coursework?

First stop...Boots 

Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Rockin' Curves from Boots (£6.99): Now whenever I am looking for another mascara I like to try out a new one each time, this is always a big disaster as I never know what one to go for. I decided to opt for this mascara because it was on a special offer for £4.99 instead of its original price. I like this brush as it created curves with its curvy wand, although it does get clumpy which could put me off purchasing it again.
I'd give it a 7/10 for price and the curvy brush

I wanted to show you what it looks like on, and this is the best picture I could produce with great detail...

My slightly creepy eyes
Second stop... Topshop

Socks with a frilly top from Topshop (3 for £8 or £3.50 each): I have literally been eyeing these up for ages but I never actually considered buying them, never the less yesterday I eventually did and I do not regret it. It was such a hard decision choosing between all of the different styles and patterns, however in the end I decided to opt for the plain ones because I thought i'd be able to wear them with more things.
I'd give these an 8/10 because they are so snug and cute!!

Final destination... Staples

Headphones from Staples (£5 each): I go through headphones like there is no tomorrow so when I went to Staples to fall in love with all the stationary they own I remembered once again I need some new headphones and I originally picked up a pair for £11.99 and my mum noticed these headphones for £5 each so I thought why not? They are surprisingly comfy, although with my track record they may not last long. Good job I brought two pairs, right?
I'd give them a 7/10 for price and practicality 

Have you brought anything recently?
