Make Up Haul

I have been quite naughty recently with make up, especially with lip products. But a girl can never have too many lipsticks!

From Left-Right (sort of) Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Truffle (001), Sleek Pout Polish in Pink Cadillac (947), Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick in 101, Maybelline Volum Express Cat Eyes, Sleek Face Form Palette in Light (373), Clarins Instant Light in 03, Cargo Cheek Activator Cream Blush in Rose Flush, Balmi Raspberry, Creme Brulee Vaseline, MAC eyeshadow in Swiss Chocolate (matte A70) and Nylon (frost A55)

I have really wanted the Sleek contour kit for a while but they still did not have it in stock. Fortunately, the SA showed me this beaut hidden in a drawer (Sleek send stock but not the appropriate displays so often new products stay in a drawer for a while). I bought this in light because the medium was far too dark for my olive skin (!!). I have not had a chance to use this yet but I am really looking forward to it. 

Usually I stay clear of lip balms in pots. I detest having a greasy, possibly pigmented, finger afterwards. I have wanted this limited edition Vaseline since last christmas though so I was thrilled when I spotted it. I have heard great things about Sleek Pout Polish and a friend of mine went through one pretty quickly so I thought I might as well give one a go. 

Until recently I was not much of a lipstick girl, but I have become obsessed! These are both really lovely colours that are not too bold. The Lip butter smells heavenly and really nourishes my lips. 

These have been sat in their packaging, neglected for a long, long time. Im not much of an eyeshadow girl (apart from my trusty Naked palette). I will be using Nylon (left) for highlighting my brow arches and Swiss Chocolate for my crease.

I have the eos balm already and really liked the packaging so when I saw these bad boys had been released this side of the pond I was eager to try one. First impressions are not brilliant but I will persevere. I have seen some vids on Youtube featuring this Clarins lip perfector, and I wanted to see what all this fuss is about.

I love Cargo and I am so happy its for sale in Boots. Everything was 75% off so rather than paying the usual 18.50 I bought this uber cool blush for less than a fiver. It comes out white and the colour builds the more you blend it in. epic.
I read an interview with a Pretty Little Liars actress and she mentioned this mascara as her HG beauty product. She was not sponsored by maybelline and her eyes are always incredible so I wanted to try it for myself. 

Have you bought any of these for yourself?
