More Hauling & Giveaway prizes!

I forgot to include some items in the last haul post guys! Plus I received my giveaway prizes from Computergirl's giveaway that I won so wanted to update you guys on that. Go check her blog out if you haven't yet :)

So continuing from last time, I got a Gosh Bronzer in 06 if I am correct. This was on sale plus the container is huge so I thought might as well. Also this reminded of the Illuminating Bronzers Bobbi Brown had released a while ago. It is fairly matte so it cant resemble those bronzers in finish but it is a lovely tawny rose color, a pinky-brown which should be a staple in every makeup geeks collection.

I received MAC's Eyeshadow in Bamboo as one of my giveaway prizes and am loving it! It looks pretty boring in the pan and I thought it would not even show up on my skin, however it is in fact a matte tan color for me. I cannot wear this on the browbone as its far too dark for my NC30 complexion. But it is stunning to use in the crease and as a blender shade, must have!

Next up is Rimmels Volume Boosting Lip Plumping Lip Gloss in Seduce. Its the most gorgeous nude-beige color with a hint of caramel, no wonders a seducing shade for sure! It just can't go wrong on any skintone. When worn alone provides the most luscious natural lips. It works wonders over a lipstick as it changes the color into something really pretty. I got this in sale too so totally worth it. It is overtly glossy and stays put, comes with a lovely doe foot applicator and has a minty feel to it.

I also won the Natural Collection Lip Liner in Honey in the giveaway. This is surprisingly very nice in texture, blends well is and is amazingly pigmented. It's a gorgeous peachy brown shade which I love sporting all over the lips and finishing off with the Rimmel Lipgloss. If you are enjoying the look of the Peach Stock Lipstick from MAC's Liberty collection, this liner is not to miss.

The Philosophy Candy Hearts Lipgloss was also included in my prizes. This smells amazing, tastes even better and is such a pretty berry shade. It is quite thick hence you only need a bit. It immediately adds a berry tint on the lips and is lovely over a lipstick too!

After having quite a false eyelash collection, I gave into purchasing the world famous Duo Eyelash Adhesive. This one is in white and dries clear which is good for beginners as even if you create a mess it wont be seen. I found this pretty expensive for the tiny tube and to me it works strictly okay. It took like 3 minutes to dry and the inner corners still never managed to stick properly. I have no idea what the hype is all about. I guess its because its the only eyelash adhesive that everyone knows of! I infact prefer the glue that came along with my Eldora Lashes.

Anyways, that's enough of my rambling for now. Hope you guys enjoyed the post!

I know what you mean with the duo glue! I don't find it to stick well at all! I recently bought Ardell lash adhesive and it is amazing though removing it isn't as easy as the duo one. XO

I tried to go for neutrals that would suit everyone. Thanks for the shout out! Emma x
