A Not So Little Haul

So it happened, I caved. And in a big way. But in my defense most of these products were something I 'needed' or had come highly recommended by other bloggers! I did also buy the Revlon Lip Butter in Red Velvet in addition to this but I got home and opened it to discover it had already been used with a huge nail gash in it! I'm hopefully taking it back for an exchange.

Firstly, two mascaras. Lately I've been having big issues with black smudges under my eyes, I originally thought it was concealer not lasting very well but I then realized that it was actually mascara leaving the black marks. To combat this I've returned to waterproof mascara and two that come highly recommended are the Revlon Lash Potion and MaxFactor Masterpiece. The brushes on these are very different, the Revlon being a big bristly brush whereas the MaxFactor is a small rubber brush. I'm excited to put these to the test!

Next up two lip product. I ended up with both of these in my basket because of MissBudgetBeauty. She recently did a feature on the Natural Collection Lipsticks and mentioned loving the shade in Raspberry. I picked this up because it seemed like a lovely everyday colour for autumn and winter without being too bold. She has also mentioned many times loving the Revlon ColourBurst Matte Balm in Unapologetic and after swatching it I fell in love in the colour so bought it as well.

I was feeling a bit basic with just using a black eyeshadow on my brows which is why I ended up with two brow products. First is the Rimmel Brow This Way in Clear because the shade available did not match up with my hair or eyebrows so I thought clear would work for on top of my simple powder. Many bloggers have recently have been talking about this so I thought it would be worth picking up for the price. The L'oreal Brow Artist in Dark Brunette was on a separate stand and I noticed it on the way to the till. This shade looks like it would work perfectly for my eyebrows and it comes with a shaping wax, coloured pencil and brush so hopefully will be a great all in one. I haven't seen many people talk about this so I believe it is a new product.

Lastly two Maybelline products. Everyone says the Eye Eraser Concealer is great so I picked this up in light as my current concealer is running out. I also got the Eye Studio Master Graphic eyeliner as I hadn't seem much buzz about it but it seems an interesting concept.

Look forward to seeing reviews of these products in the future. Is there anything you've got your eye on currently? Boots have 3 for 2 on all cosmetics at the moment so it would be a good time to pick up those essential bits and bobs! I got a saving of £18 on this lot.
