Hello button mushrooms!!
Today I'm bringing you a little post about a couple of bits I bought with some birthday money I received from my boyfriend's mam, naturally as soon as I got it I went out to Superdrug and blew it! Because, in my opinion, birthday money is for spending, not saving!
I bought this on a whim because I'm not happy with my Rimmel eyebrow pencil at the moment, and I've got to say, I'm loving it!
I won't be using the highlight end on this pencil as much as the actual pencil part as it is quite a strong highlight, but for nights out I'll definitely use it so my brows stand out!
It's sort of a wax and pencil hybrid as opposed to a run-of-the-mill pencil, and it's wind up so you don't have to worry about tiresome sharpening.
I really like it so far, I'll let you know if my opinion changes!
I wasn't sure this colour would suit me but I really love it! It's so Autumnal and rich, the formula is incredible too, this is two coats and it's flawless.
The Barry M Gelly's are the gift that just keeps on giving, and I'm definitely going to pick up more of these Autumn colours from them, I have my eye on Paprika....
These lip pencils are pretty new to the UK market so I thought I'd pick one up seen as they're only £4.99 and they had a really gorgeous range of colours.
I wasn't expecting much from these, I expected it to be really dry and highlight the imperfections on my lips, but O.M.G. I love it!!!
I think it's such a gorgeous nude, the formula is more of a satin than a complete matte, which is more forgiving if your lips are less than perfect (like mine) and I found it so easy to use.
The only downside to these is you have to sharpen them, which is a major bummer as I don't have a pencil sharpener big enough haha but I will buy one because I love these so much!
I will definitely be purchasing more of these, they're 3 for 2 in Boots at the moment too so run there and fill your boots!!
Another nude lippy! These Color Elixirs are also new to the UK so I thought I'd give one a try, and I thought it was some kind of liquid lipstick, but it's actually more of a pigmented gloss.
I do really like it though, it's really smooth and not sticky on the lips and I'd definitely try some of the other colours.
I used to really like huge, drag-queen style false lashes, but I think maybe I've matured lately because I've been craving more natural looking lashes haha.
I wanted some lashes that look like they could just be my lashes, but better! And I thought these ones looked like they fit the bill.
They're full, but not too full, and I think with some mascara on them they'll just make me look like I have amazing lashes, fingers crossed!!
There's my small haul! I'm sure there'll be more before long as I have a feeling I'm going to get a Superdrug or Boots voucher for my birthday....my friends and family are all enablers of my spending addiction!
