More new purchases ...

Arghhh... I have been a very very bad girl. Spending every penny. I picked up more clothes and makeup recently. I have to say my shopaholism is coming back to me now. Definitely not a good thing. Oh well ... Anyways, I decided to decicate this post to makeup that I've purchased. I will do a separate one on clothes :)

Left to right :

* Maybelline Superstay Foundation (in Cameo 020)
* Barry M LipPaint in 101 Marshmallow (light pastel pink)
* Barry M Glossy Tube in no.4
* Barry M LipPaint in 136 (golden pink, nude)
* L'Oreal Superliner Carbon Gloss
* Revlon Nail Varnish in Minted

Swatches of the products (left to right): LipPaint no.136, LipPaint no.101, Glossy Tube no.4 and then at the botton L'Oreal Superliner.

I have to say that I'm overall happy :D They had 3 for 2 on all Barry M at Boots so I thought I would treat myself (of course with my beloved Boots points), then they gave out a voucher if you spent over £5 for Revlon and L'oreal, I had two of these therefore the Superliner and the Nail Varnish ( I wouldn't normally spend over £6 on a Revlon nail varnish, I'd rather put in an extra £2 and get an Essie one)

Maybelline Superstay 24hr Foundation - I don't buy drugstore foundation but I quite wanted to try this for everyday wear. I will still use my Dior Nude though! It was at an introductory price of £6.99 so I thought I'd give it a shot. It has an SPF19, and a 'new Micro-Flex Stretch Formula' haha, how revolutionary. It's supposed to be 24hr non-transfew but I really doubt that it is. It has a pump too, which is nice. I don't like foundations which haven't got pumps. I really hope I picked the right colour (Cameo no.020)...

Revlon Nail Varnish in Minted - I love this! It's been sold out and sought after. I picked up the last one at my local Boots - and it's nowhere to be found (my friends were jealous). The colour is pastely and would look lovely with a tan, I don't have a tan but I like it nonetheless.

Barry M LipPaint - I have these in no.101, no.136 and Touch Of Magic (green turns to pink). I like them, they're good value at £4.25 and often there's 2 for 3 deals at Boots or Superdrug. They give off satisfactory colour ( at least in the colour that I have, I cannot say that they're bold colours though)

Barry M Glossy Tubes - I like the colour I got (no.4) it's a shiny (shimmerless) nude! I see exactly where the name comes from - Glossy and they are indeed! It smells of bubblegum, but I can't give a proper opinion because I haven't tested it properly, only swatched it on my hand.

L'Oreal Superliner - It's line pen and ink for eyes! The applicator makes it easy to put it on ( one of my first liquid liners put me off them because the application was a torture!). It's like a pencil - you can hold the end of the wand, and put it on .. just wherever. Love love love this. Can't talk about staying on power yet.

I like what I got :) But i have to say that it's a significant amount of dosh gone ... I just can't help myself. I will probably do a proper review on one or two products later on in the month when I have properly tested them.

Lots of love my darlingssssss x x x
