Beauty Haul

So I bought a few bits and pieces recently that I had either needed, or in my case just wanted... sometimes it's just nice to treat yourself to nice things! I'll be showing you some of my favourite products I've added to my beauty collection, so let's get started!

MaxFactor // False Lash Effect Fusion Mascara - £11.99
I thought it was time to buy a brand new mascara, as I find it's a beauty product you need to buy every few months as they tend to dry out the longer you have them. I decided to try something I had never used before, and this one caught my eye (mainly because the packaging was cool, and Purple), so I went with it and bought the MaxFactor 'False Lash Effect Fusion' Mascara! I must say I'm very impressed with this one, I've been using Sleek and the BarryM Lash Vegas mascaras for quite a long time now (which I still love). This MaxFactor mascara is great, I honestly can't fault it. It coats the lashes without making them look clumpy, and you don't have to apply hundreds of coats. Does it give my lashes the 'False Lash Effect'? Well they certainly look great using this, I've also been using a lash fabricator (which is like mascara, but little fibres you put on your lashes in between coats of mascara to make your lashes look longer) so using these two products together really does give the false lash effect, definitely. I like that the brush is thick too!

Sleek // I-Divine RIO RIO [Limited Edition] Palette - £7.99
This is probably my favourite purchase recently, and so many of you guys have been wondering what eyeshadows I've been using... so this is it. Sleek's 'I-Divine RIO RIO' Limited Edition eyeshadow palette!
I've been using the shade "CACHACA" on the inner corners of my eyes, this shimmery White shade is GORGEOUS. It's a brilliant contrast to use with all of the bright colours you can find in the palette. I think "NIGHT FEVER" (Pink, second from the left at the top) is another one of my favourites, it's just so girly and lovely. As most of you already know, I have a deep love for bright eye makeup - and this is just the perfect palette, it's definitely worth the money - and for a palette, I think it's worth every penny (they're quite cheap!).

Maybelline // Color Tattoo 24hr - £4.99 (each)
Now if you've never used these before, I'd be fairly certain you've seen them in a beauty haul or makeup collection on YouTube. I kept seeing these Maybelline Color Tattoo cream/gel eyeshadow's online, and I always wanted some. These are a BRILLIANT addition to my makeup collection, they really do last a long time on your eyes and do not crease (the main reason I have steered clear from cream based eyeshadows), I'm so impressed with these. I got shades "Eternal Gold" and "And On Bronze" - you can see how beautiful they are. As we're entering Autumn (hooray), I can see these becoming a favourite for the season coming! 

Essie // Mint Candy Apple & Sparkle On Top (Twinkle-Belle Duo Kit) - £12.99
I consider myself a HUGE nail varnish lover, as I'm sure I've mentioned before - I can rarely go into a drugstore without picking one up. I've been swooning over Essie polishes for a LONG time, unfortunately their price always put me off (they're usually £8 each, ouch!) but these were in a duo set, and they just spoke out to me (they didn't, I'm just trying to justify buying them to myself). Mint has always been one of my favourite colours, so obviously I was drawn to these, the 'Sparkle On Top' reminded me of 'Mermaid' from Urban Outfitters which is my favourite nail varnish that I own. So yes, I bought these. They did not disappoint me, and now I want even more Essie products, which is going to make my bank account weep.

Garnier // Micellar Cleansing Water - £3.99
Now this ladies (and gentlemen if you're reading, if you are hello!) is what I call a miracle product. I have always used makeup wipes or johnsons baby lotion to remove my makeup (literally, all of my life) until I discovered Garnier's Micellar Cleansing Water! After using this for the first time, I realise what EFFORT it was taking my makeup off with wipes etc, this stuff is like a magical makeup eraser. You just plop a little onto a makeup pad and wipe away (with EASE!).. and it's done. It's cut a lot of time out of my evening routine. It's perfect for all skin types too, and no perfume (much to my disappointment, as you know I love a good smelling product) but this stuff is fabulous. High recommendation from me!

And that's it, those are the best thing's I have bought recently. What do YOU think? Do you have any of these products, if so, what's your opinion?
