ELF order and New Look heels

Good evening!
ELF and their offers! They're currently having their third 50% off sale in 3 weeks (Use code LAST50 by 8am Monday). I didn't buy from their first sale because I didn't know if I could afford to. By the time their second came along, I had some money in the bank. I bought things I needed, rather than things I wanted and would rarely use. 
So here's my boring but sensible order:

Studio Eyebrow Kit in Medium £1.75 (£3.50 full price), Mineral Eyeshadow Primer £1.50 (£3.00 full price), Eyelid Primer 75p (£1.50 full price).
The powder that comes in the Eyebrow Kit is a little lighter than my current one, but it still works well. I'm very impressed with the packaging, both the cardboard box it comes in and the plastic casing that holds the product.

Studio Complexion (x2), Powder, Small Angled and Small Precision brushes all £1.75 (£3.50 full price)
Apart from the Small Precision brush, these are repurchases. I love them! I think I've had 5 Complexion brushes now.

New Look heels: 
Platform Court Shoe £19.99

While in New Look the other week, I walked through the Wide Fit shoe section and spotted these. On the shelf they looked 'meh', but I tried them on anyway and liked them straight away. I'd been after a basic pair of suede heels for ages. I'm normally a size 7, but to my surprise, they were too big. I tried on a 6 in another colour and they fitted great. I asked if they had any size 6s in black, but unfortunately they didn't, so I ordered them online. There's still a small gap at the back of my right foot, so I'm going to get some insoles. They look a lot better in real life, compared to the photo.
So the moral of the story is, don't disregard the Wide Fit section! These are classed as Wide Fit, but they're not at all.
