Makeup and Beauty Haulin'


Happy New Year! Boy did 2014 fly by. I would love to tell you that I am now nursing a hangover from a crazy, cocktail infused night out, but in all honesty I'm not that big a fan of New Years Eve and have always found it to be somewhat of a disappointment! So this year I opted for a less than wild night in with my friend, instead of spending all my money on an impending crap night out, money which could of course be spent fueling my makeup addiction, am I right?!

I thought I'd share a few new things to my collection, because I personally love to read these kinds of posts! Nars Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base and Balmain Eau D'Ivoire were kindly given to me by Santa (aka. Mother Hen). The perfume is a gorgeous and delicate floral scent, along a similar vein to Chloe, my all time favourite! I'll be reviewing the Nars eyeshadow primer as soon as possible because it is amazing!

The Too Faced Boudoir Eyes Eyeshadow palette and Clarins Instant Concealer were both bought on Escentual whilst they were doing 20% off sitewide for the Boxing Day sales, a discount which just couldn't be passed up. The palette looks so pretty and I'm really excited to try the concealer as I've heard nothing but good things about it.

And lastly I caved and bought Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream, which so far has been an absolute dream at protecting my lips from the harsh winter weather!

Are you a fan of any of these products?

xoxo

  2. Too Faced is a brand that I have had little interest in until recently. That packaging of that palette looks good enough to just buy because of that x

    1. Amazing isn't it! I just wish I could use it as an all over hand cream but it's a bit intense for that. xo
