Haul: Urban Decay, Sleek, MUA and more!

Thursday, 14 July 2011
Hiya,

I paid a visit to Meadowhall here in Sheffield this afternoon. I had been wanting to go for a few days now because I had seen a few products I wanted to try out.

At Boots, I went straight for the Natural Collection aisle because recently I have heard a lot of people (especially on YouTube) talking about the lipsticks. I picked one up which I thought suited me the most. There was also an offer at Max Factor where you get a free gift if you purchase items worth £15 or more. I needed another mascara since my False Lash Effect had run out so I picked that up along with a lipstick.
I'm loving both of these lipsticks. They're really smooth and look perfect with my skin tone!

The free gift was a tin which came with four sample size products and a voucher for £3 off when you buy something from Max Factor.


I have a lip gloss like the one that came in this tin and really like it because it isn't sticky at all. I'm looking forward to trying everything else too.

Next I went to Superdrug to see the new Caribbean collection by Sleek. The colours were too bright for me but the Sunset palette caught my eye and so I had to pick it up.
These are a few swatches from the palette; they are so pigmented!
For some reason, the Superdrug at Meadowhall isn't carrying the new MUA Professional line but I did grab a couple of eye shadows from the regular line.

Left: Shade 1. Right: Shade 2.

Left: Shade 1. Right: Shade 2
These are both highlighting shades. The one on the left having a gold sheen whereas Shade 2 on the right is more silverish. I mainly purchased Shade 2 at the recommendation of aprettyobsession but I really love it! For £1 you really cannot go wrong!


Lastly (phew), I went to the Urban Decay counter at Debenhams. I wanted to get another Glide on Shadow pencil. Here too, there was an offer- get a free gift if you buy two products, how could I say no?! I picked up their sharpener since I needed one for my larger pencils (NYX jumbo pencils etc) and received a free sample sized All Nighter spray!


Shade: Rehab
I haven't purchased this much in a long time! I'm definitely feeling a little bad but it was nice to treat myself after being so busy recently. 


If you would like an in-depth review on some of these products, let me know.


Don't forget to enter my giveaway which is ending in a week!
