Spring Makeup Haul

I hadn't meant to do another make up haul so soon but a few shopping trips later (and a hard to resist 3 for 2 offer at Boots) I seemed to have amassed a bit of a collection of new makeup! I haven't actually had my eye on anything in particular but there are a few things which I saw and thought would be perfect for spring. Here are the products which I've bought over the past few weeks...

Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Stick

I bought this in a bit of a hurry but something about these caught my eye. I like the idea of using a eye shadow stick instead of a pot and a brush. This colour was definitely the best of the bunch, it's a bronze/gold colour and I'm really looking forward to trying it out!

Maybelline Color Drama Velvet Lip Pencil

This was another product which I hadn't anticipated to pick up but I prefer pencil formulas to lipstick formulas and all of the colours of these looked amazing! This shade was probably the most wearable for me and I wore it as soon as I bought it and it lasted all day :)

L'Oreal Lip Liner Coture

I actually bought this before I got the Maybelline Lip Pencil. I wanted to re-purchase my favourite Rimmel Lip Liner in East End Snob but it was out of stock so I decided to give this a go. There are definitely pros and cons to this but because it's an actual pencil, it will last much longer than the Rimmel one. It's a more berry shade and it's perfect for springtime.

This was actually a sample which I got from a Bloggers Love... event last week. I've been using it every day since and I'm really impressed. It contains lanolin and it can be used for a multitude of purposes including dry skin and a cuticle soother. I might have to be re-purchasing it soon!

Barry M Chisel Cheeks Contour Kit

This is the only product which I bought that I'd heard of some hype about. To be honest I didn't really need it but apparently it's the best dupe out there for the Anastasia Contour Kit and at £6.50, it's a bargain! I've given it a try a few times and I'm really impressed with the shades but not with the packaging and the circle pots. However, the overall result is so good, I'm willing to overlook it.

  1. Great Haul! I love all the products you bought! I'm a big fan of the Rimmel scandaleyes and I always wanted to try the Maybelline Velvet lip pencil, but it hasn't come out yet in Hungary...
