Recent lovely haul things

Over the last week or so, I've been a lucky girl indeed. Here's what I've been hauling recently (still no pictures, sorry!)

Collection 2000 Glam Crystal Gel Liner in Turquoise - I really love the colour of this, and the liner itself stays for a really long time! The glitter was a bit patchy but I think that's because I was applying it in a bit of a rush.

Collection 2000 Longer Lash Mascara in Intense Black - I've been using Lancome Hypnose since I got married,but it's waterproof and that really annoys me as it makes my lashes slightly clumpy. This is ok as a very basic mascara, but is quite a wet formula if you know what I mean. Not amazing, but not truly awful..

Collection 2000 Colour Intense Solo Eyeshadow in Velvet -  This colour is beautiful. It's a really lovely plummy shimmery redish purple.Yum. Very smooth application and good coolour pay off.

Collection 2000 Pop-tastic! Eye Palette - I got free with the above three Collection 2000 products.The colours are similar to those in the Sleek acid palette,although not as bright or as richly pigmented. I haven't tried this properly yet but from the swatches I did, I think it might be alright.

The Body Shop Colourglide Lip Colour in 48 Soft Peony - I LOVE this! I'm not really a lipcolour scares me. However, this gives a beautiful soft pink, moisturises nicely and smells like yummy raspberry sweets. Definitely recommend giving this a try.

The Body Shop Moisture Foundation in 04 - I've been looking for a new foundation for a while, as I got the Lancome one for my wedding (see a theme emerging??) and had a bit more of a tan. This is a perfect match for my skincare, applies really smoothly and evenly and doesn't look patchy on my dried bits. The combination of this and the Lip Colour probably means that The Body Shop is going to be getting a lot more of my money in the next few months!!!

I also got a huuuge Fyrinnae haul on Thursday and ordered my Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Palette but I'll save those for another post :)

What have you hauled recently? Have you tried any of The Body Shop's make up? What did you think?


  1. I love The Body Shop! The blushes and the eyeshadows are good:) Spearmint eyeshadow is like my fave fave ever and it doesn't crease at all (that's when not using primer too:P)

    The Eye Shimmers are pretty poor though as well as the Super Volume Mascara.
    And the Shimmer Cubes Palette (Ice Cool Eyes) is good but I only seem to get any real payoff when I use it wet.

    x Thanks for showing us your haul:D

  2. I got the feeling that that Shimmer Cubes wouldn't be very highly pimented... the new spring one does like light it features some slightly deeper shades though so I might give that a try.

    The blushes looked really nice but then again,I think blusher is fairly hard to get wrong when it's the powder type! Spearmint looks like a lovely colour!

    What is it that you're not keen on with the mascara? xx

  3. Oh it was just clumpy and really didn't do much:( Mascara fail! x

  4. That is a mascara fail! Also,are you getting the Alice Palette?If you love the Book of Shadows, it'll float your make up boat! x

  5. Haha I've heard it's already sold out at Debenhams:S And I think I've got most of the colours in other palettes so I think I'll give it a miss but thankyou:) and lol at 'make-up boat' XD

  6. I love love love the collection 2000 glitter eyeliners, they're the best glitter liners i've ever tried!

  7. I'm definitely loving them colour wise at the moment and I'm pretty certain that when I apply them properly (i.e. not as I'm trying to run out the door), I'll love them even more. They're definitely better than the old be never too busy to beautiful ones I had! And there's such a pretty range of colours!


Your comments and thoughts are really appreciated :) Thank you for taking the time to chat xx
