Pay Day Haul!

January has been a long month for me.

However I was paid a day early so what better way to celebrate than a much deserved shopping binge :)

First stop MAC.

One item to tick off my ever growing want list was Gleam eyeshadow which i'm wearing today with Mulch in my crease. This also completes my six items to Back 2 MAC, once depotted of course.

I restrained myself in MAC so just picked up one last thing.

Saint Germain lipstick. Such a lovely barbie pink and ho doesn't love barbie?

Here is it applied on my lips:

My last stop of the night was Boots.

I picked up quite a few things, mainly lip products but i'll start with the non lip items.

I got the Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner set in Velvet Rope.

From left to right: Yeyo (metallic white), Stash (olive green with gold glitter), 1999 (plum with gold glitter), Bourbon (brown with gold glitter) and Zero (black)

I've yet to use these properly but from swatching them they go on smoothly and its quite hard to remove them.

Boots were doing a special offer on Maxfactor's False Lash Effect mascara (only £7.76) so I nabbed myself one. I already love their 2000 Calorie Mascara so i'm pleased to report that this is great too. The wand and packaging is identical to Cover Girls Lash Blast apart from the container being black.

For reference Lash Blast is on the left and False Lash Effect on the right.

I havent tried many products from the 17 collection except for their lipgloss and nail polish but I spotted a lip pencil and just had to have it.

It is their Perfect Pout lip liner in Fawn.

I really like this. Its a peachy nude. I'm going to test this as an all over colour with a layer of vaseline on top and see how it turns out. This was free as it was 3 for 2 on selected 17 items.

This post is to be continued...
