Haul :-)

Hi All,

Welcome to my new subscribers and thank you very much for subscribing!

I mentioned in my last post that I was off work for a couple of weeks having some physiotherapy and would be updating my blog, well I'm sorry, that didn't quite happen! The physio was a little more painful in my first week than I had expected so didn't really get to go out much :-(

But I did manage to get a few things, so here goes:

I popped into my local cco and picked up 2 MAC eyeshadows that I have been wanting for ages; Phloof and Honey Lust.



I am not very adventurous with my colour pallete, I used to be when I was younger and went out a lot more, but these days, I like to stick to neutrals and these colours are just gorgeous! (I did try and do some swatches for you but I'm not that great with the camera lol).

After reading Sabrina's blog about Maybelline's crystal rocks and how similar it was to MAC's bare necessity, I decided to give it a try so went out and got it! I have used a few times and so far so good. I'm one of these people who doesn't wear lipstick - for one, my lips are so dry, and for some reason I haven't found one that suits me yet-and trust me I've tried plenty!

I did a post a while back about my problem with dark circles under my eyes and how I have tried many products to try and cover them and thought I had found it with Benefit's erase paste. Don't get me wrong, I really like this product still, but after reading Zoe's blog post on the Gosh touch-up concealer.




I got it in number 2 and followed Zoe's tips and I love it! It works really well combined with the erase paste on the darker parts.

Another product which I purchased on the reccommendation of another blooger was the Botanics Face Soothing Cleansing Balm which was recommended by Gemma. I have been looking for ages to up my skin care routine-or actually start one! I've mentioned before that I am really lazy and this includes with my skin care routine! I have the whole 3 step Clinique cleansing range and have used it in the past with no problems, but I can never seem to get into a routine with things, so I have decided that now's the time to start! I was toying with the idea of trying the Liz Earle products, but rather than spend all of that money, I thought I'd give this a try first. I only bought it today so haven't used it yet but I will do a review on it after a couple of weeks use.



On a final note - I'm sure you've all seen the recent collaboration with Body Form and Jemma Kidd promoting the Eve Appeal which is a charity which raises funds for research into gynaecological cancers. When I heard about this, I thought it would be the perfect time to stock up so I have been checking every boots, superdrug, siansbury's basically anywhere I could think of that would sell them, but just couldn't find any of the promotional packs, until today! I was in my local boots and found 1 packet that had a lipgloss attached so I snapped it up! When I got to the till, I had an even better suprise - they currently have Body Form on offer at only £1 each! So if you're wanting to try the Jemma Kidd lipgloss, keep an eye out in boots! I have tried the lipgloss today, and I think I like it! It's a very nice colour (see below) but it's a little bit too sticky - I like sticky lipglosses because I find that they last longer, but I'm not sure if this is too sticky! 

 



Anyway, that's all from me for now.
Speak soon
