Mini Haul&First Thoughts

Mini Haul& First Thoughts

Sleek Face Contour Kit(in medium) £6.50
Finally I bought the sleek contour kit I’ve had my eye on for months but not got round to buying. I can’t say much on the product yet as I’ve only used it twice but so far I'm liking it although I wish now I had bought this at another time as my local Superdrug only had the shade medium in stock. I realise now it’s way too dark for me L

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder (in 005 silky beige) £3.99                                          
This was a spur of the moment purchase for me. I usually use All About Face pressed powder which I believe is around £1.50 to set my foundation& powder down my neck but I thought it wouldn't hurt to try something new.So I’m going to give this one a go!

Yankee Candle In Vanilla Cupcake £1.80
I bought this candle yesterday at the Yankee candle store in Ashford outlet centre. The candles in vanilla cupcake which I've not tried before so I was spectacle of spending £20 and bought a sampler for £1.80 instead. After trying it out today I will definitely be going back to buy the full size candle!

MUA mascara £1
I bought this mascara as the one I’m using now is on its last legs. On first impressions I wasn't too pleased but then for the price of £1 I wouldn't expect much at all. In my opinion this mascara does nothing special for my lashes. One for the bin I think.
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer(in fair) £4.19
I believe this is the 5th collection 2000 perfection concealer I’ve purchased!
I can’t praise this product enough. Best concealer I’ve ever tried, hands down.

All About Face Jumbo Eye shadow Pencil(in bronze) £1.50
I picked this up whilst having a wonder through the makeup section in my local Tesco’s. The eye shadow pencil came in two colours; bronze and sliver. I picked up the bronze pencil, I’ve tried it out a few times using it as a base colour and I absolutely love it! And for the small price of £1.50 it’s a real bargain!
