Haul Ass!

Oh hey there, 
                       Yes it's me, that person who used to have a blog. I shan't go into the usual heaps of excuses of why I haven't blogged in an eternity as quite frankly I have no excuse, I've just been super busy of late and the blog took a back seat. So my sincerest apologies aside, let's pretend like this isn't kinda awkward...

I thought I'd come back with a quick hall of a couple of make-up items I picked up of late. I have had a job now for a full year so I am basically a fully grown adult...right? No, I'm not at all, I bare no resemblance to an adult at all, apart from the fact that I can now buy things without having to go into the living room with my puppy dog eyes at the ready and tunefully say "daaaaaaad". I have acquired so much new stuff of late that since I took the photo's for this blog, I've bought even more new stuff, don't hate...I think I have a problem. I will show said other new things at a later date but for now here's what I bought last week...

Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 hour foundation in 303, Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Never Say Never, Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel, Benefit Hoola Bronxer, Illamasqua Pure Pigment in Alluvium, Illamaqua Cream Eye Shadow in Inhale
I'm very much enjoying all of my new products as their pretty and lovely and new... The bronzer and cream eye shadow are repurchases because I have used both products every day since I discovered them so now I just can't live without them. 
The Rimmel foundation was a bit of a random purchase after being a bit curious about drug store foundations as I've been a bit of a snob of late. Although nothing will ever beat my beloved Double Wear, I do really like this foundation, it's super long lasting but not too thick so perfect for everyday use. I've also worn it out on a night out with a primer underneath and it's lasted all night and photographed well, perfect! 
I was SO excited about the Elemis peel as I've heard people rave about it for years. It's kind of pricey but it is worth every penny as it makes my skin feel all smooth and baby like. Full review coming soon!
I've also noticed that I have a definite lipstick problem of late, particularly of the bright pink variety. Through the winter, I was all about the vamp but lately pink is the way forward. The Bare Minerals lipstick was a bit of a random thing as I've never used Bare Minerals products before but this lipstick is gorgeous. It's super pigmented and doesn't dry the lips out at all. My 2 best friends and myself all wore this lipstick out on a night out last week and it proved itself to be rather long lasting, well done Bare Minerals! 
Finally the Illamasqua pigment is just a thing of genuine beauty and it would've been rude not to buy it. It's a beautiful midnight blue with silver, gold and pink glitter in and it make's me happy just looking at it. Oh I just LOVE Illamasqua. 

And finally...

Shoes glorious shoesssss
I nabbed these bad boys after months of lusting after them but not being able to justify the price tag however one rainy Thursday I stumbled into the Metquarter and in the corner of a rather cramped sale shelf, my future babies were sat very patiently awaiting my Visa's visit. They were the only pair left in the whole of Liverpool (I'd already been to 2 Kurt Geiger's that day...) and they were in my size. It would've just been silly not to buy them really. They are genuinely beautiful, the picture doesn't do them justice at all. The front is super pointy (more so than in the photo) which I love and the wedge makes the lack of platform way more bearable. 

So that's that. I promise to be better from now on, really I do. If you want to see more in depth reviews of any of the products let me know. 

Speak soon guys X
