Collective Haul

Wednesday, 9 February 2011
Hiya,

I've had so much going on recently. My sister had a baby girl who is amazingly beautiful. She is so tiny and pretty, I'm loving being an aunty again.

Being busy usually never stops me from shopping.. I don't know whether that's a good thing or not!

I was at the MAC counter in Debenham and got a blusher and a lipstick.
I wanted a pink blush that I could wear every day, something that wasn't too bright. The SA was really lovely and helped me pick out a shade that would look good on my skin, which is 'Dame'. I don't know why I don't have this already; it is a really popular blusher.
I also got 'Jubilee' lipstick which is a lustre. It is the perfect nude for my skin tone and has a nice sheen.
There is a really good website called Love Makeup who I buy a lot of products from that I either can't get my hands on because they only sell in the U.S or they are out of stock elsewhere.
I bought some make up along with some brushes.
The NYX lipstick is in 'Thalia'. On my lips it is a plummy nude. As all NYX lipsticks, this is also very creamy (which I love).
The lipgloss is in 'African Queen'. It is a purple/fuchsia with blue shimmer. I am in love with this lipgloss. It is so different to all the nudes and pinks that I have. I don't apply too much because I feel it looks overdone but on a nude lipstick it looks amazing!
I also bought an eyeshadow by Urban Decay in the colour 'Zero'. This is not as pigmented as Mac's 'Carbon' but it is nice for a smokey eye.
 Lastly, I got a brush set, also from Love Makeup.

This is the Sigmax brush set. The Sigma website does offer delivery to the UK but it can take a long time to arrive which is why I ordered from here. 
The set comes with 3 brushes which Sigma claim give a 'HD' effect when applying face make up. I think they are absolutely right! I don't think I have ever used brushes that make my skin look so smooth and flawless. All the brushes are so soft. I have only used them for one day, but I am impressed.
The set also came with a free eye blending brush. This is also really soft  but I have yet to use it. I do think it will be good for blending at the crease.

That is all for my haul. I have a review on the new Olay Pro-x Cleansing System coming soon. It isn't available in the UK yet but I managed to get a hold of it recently.
