Cosmetics Haul

Hi lovelies,

So the other week I went to Birmingham with the mother, and picked up some new items. I'm not sure why it's took me so long so show you guys what I got, but here it is:

I've been a bit naughty and already been using the Dream Nude foundation

Boots were having a three for two offer on Maybelline so what can I say I couldn't resist. After seeing Maybelline's latest foundation ads everywhere I wanted to try this out, and I'm so glad I did, it's becoming one of my favourites. The thought of it is a little tricky as you think if you press a little hard you'll end up with too much product but that isn't the case, once you've had a couple of goes you know how much pressure you need to apply for the right amount of product.

I got Dream Matte Mousse as it's one of those I've used before and can't remember whether I liked it or not so I wanted to give it another try.

The blush was something I had heard a lot of reviews about so I figured I'd give to a go.

I had already got two sample sizes of this beauty and didn't want them to finish as I fell in love with this product. This has become my favourite moisturiser -probably for the lovely lemon smell. I love the packaging of this also, and I couldn't wait to get my hands on the full size product. It leaves my skin feeling great when it's on and also acts as a primer before putting your makeup on - BONUS!

I couldn't help myself when we went into Selfridges and shamefully sauntered over to the Mac counter. When I saw the natural collection I knew that this is one of the products that I wanted from it, purely because I love their mineralised skin finish range. 

I got this in the colour blonde and I find the colour so gorgeous, I love the gradient effect of this and the payoff is great. This is one of those colours that I can see myself wearing everyday in the summer as it can be quite subtle on the cheeks.

What I love about these multicoloured products is that they can be used individually or blended, which for me gives me more product to then work with.

The next item was something that I had wanted for absolutely ages: Mac Creme Cup. This is a gorgeous everyday lipstick and I love the cremesheen formula. I always find it so smooth and moisturising on my lips. This is a lovely shade of pink with blue undertones and is one of those lipsticks that can go with any look whether it's a smokey eye or just a natural everyday look.

The last item I picked up was this little gem that I couldn't wait to get my hands on, I love love love Benefit blushers and this is my third. I love the colours in this and once blended together are gorgeous. 

The new packaging with their blushers are great with the little mirror and compact brush, what's different about this brush compared to Bella Bamba is the fact that this one is an angled brush which I prefer. I did quickly try it out the other day but couldn't get much product on the brush - so I'll stick to my handy Sigma. 

However if you need a touchup during the day this brush is very handy, I can see this quickly becoming part of my everyday items and possibly replacing my beloved Sugabomb.

I hope you guys enjoyed my little haul, and if you want any reviews doing just let me know.
