Collective haul

Hey guys, so sorry I have been absent from my blog for so long. I thought I would start back with a collective haul, so here all the things I have purchased over the last couple of months.


Hourglass ambient lighting powder in Ethereal light, Artdeco bronzing glow blusher, ChiChi Blush (this came in a pack and doesn't have a name on it) and ChiChi Nudes palette



I had been eyeing off the Hourglass ambient lighting powders for so long, I finally decided to purchase one just after christmas. I ordered the beautiful Artdeco limited edition blusher from beauty bay not long ago and am so happy with the colour play off. The two ChiChi products were part of a gift pack I got in the christmas sales. 


Nars Blush in Mata Hari, Nars Light Reflecting Powder, Mac Pro longwear in NC15 and La Roche-Posay BB cream in 01.

I picked up these two Nars products a couple of weeks ago and love them to bits. The blush is so beautiful, but you have to make sure you use a light hand. The light reflecting powder is very similar to the Australis ready set go! setting powder so I might just purchase that next time to save money.

I had been to the Mac counter numerous times to get samples of the Pro Longwear foundation, and couldn't decide if I wanted it or not. Well I got it, but am a little disappointed because it is still too dark for my skin :( I have to mix it with a pale foundation to wear it, but it will not go to waste! 

This La Roche-Posay BB cream is one of the best I have tried. It actually has a really good coverage, yet it still feels light. The wear of it isn't all day, but you can easily touch it up with some concealer and powder. Great product to wear when you ducking down to the shops.


Urban Decay 24/7 glide on eye pencils in: Ink, Riot, Desperation, Apathy, west and black market; and Physicians Formula Felt Tip eye marker

When I saw a few people post about the Urban Decay 24/7 eye pencils I knew that I should get them because they are so  similar to the Rimmel Scandaleyes but I caved when I saw the mini set on sale at  Beautybay. Physicians Formula was on sale at Priceline with $10 off everything, so I grabbed the Felt Tip eye marker because I had heard great things about it.


Benefit Cabana glama makeup book, Hello Flawless powder, Rockateur box blush, Lolli tint, They're Real mascara and Lip colour in Juicy Details.

I was naughty and put in an order with benefit online (the american website) and put together a pack where I got to choose one product from each section. I Chose Hello Flawless powder in Petal: which is slightly too dark for me but I am going to have a play around with it and see if it will work. The newest box blush in Rockateur which is a stunning glowing rose pink colour, which also smells amazing. Benefits Latest release, Lolli tint. They're real mascara which makes my lashes look amazing. A lip colour in Juicy Details which is a rose pink.

 I also added the Cabana Glama makeup book to the order because it was on sale. This contains a mini sized Hoola bronzer, a mini brush for travelling, a mini size of Posie tint, three eyeshadows in Peach Fizz, Bronze Buzz and Cocoa Pizzazz, a some kind of gorgeous concealer in medium (which will be good for contouring) and a double needed eyeshadow applicator. This I brought because its great for travelling with!


Chanel Rouge Allure Lipstick in 138 Fougueuse, L'oreal Color Riche in 288 Intense Fuchsia, L'oreal Color Riche in 285 Pink Fever and Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in 805 Kissable Pink

When I saw the new Chanel range was out I couldn't resist picking up the Lipstick, it is such a beautiful colour. The two L'oreal lipsticks were on sale at Priceline, and I can't say no to lipstick. Finally this soft pink Revlon lipstick I brought because I felt like wearing something not so bright and it has become a staple in my collection.


Bioderma Atoderm Repair Hand Cream and Borjouis Rose Exclusif lipgloss

Bioderma Repair Hand Cream has become my favourite hand cream, ever. It isn't too oily, or too drying and it doesn't leave your hands sticky. So happy I tried this one out. I picked up the Borjouis Lipgloss on a day where i felt like wearing a gloss instead of a lipstick because my lips were dry. If you haven't tried either of these products i suggest you go and pick them up ASAP!


Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy, Juicy Couture Viva la juicy and Versace Bright Crystal

The first two of these perfumes are sweet, which is my favourite kind of smell. The Versace perfume is floral but a soft subtile floral that I absolutely love. These are defiantly my three favourite perfumes at the moment.

Thanks for waiting so patiently for this upload, I look forward to posting on my blog more regularly now I have a new Macbook!
