Make up haul

I briefly lifted my spending ban on pay day yesterday and picked up a few things I'd been after during July, but then also bought things I didn't really need so I've put the ban back on! No more make up or clothes until Sept(obviously unless I run out of something essential)

I went to Boots first of all to pick up the things I really needed and to find a MAC Colour Crafted dupe(which I think I've successfully found!)

I got the CC dupe which is by Rimmel, I'll be doing a seperate post on this in a moment.

I got 2 Collection 2000 nail polishes in Dynasty and Wham which is a lovely lilac and pale grey. I've been after a lilac for a while but haven't found the perfect shade. I've got dynasty on at the moment

I didn't really like the consistency of the polish but it did dry really quickly and the end result is really nice. This is with 2 coats. I'm saving Wham until A/W/.

I've wanted a tinted moisturiser to just throw on when i don't have time to do full make up and lots of people recommended N07.

I was surprised with the amount of coverage it gives when swatched. I haven't used it on my face yet but I'll review it once I do

As soon as I banned myself from buying make up, I discovered 129 lip paint by Barry M. This is what was making me late when I popped into Boots before work. I had to have it, it's the most beautiful pinky-lavender and just looks amazing

It's much brighter in real life, the lighting in the picture is just poor.

I then took my work mate to Superdrug as she wanted a nude lipstick and I recommended Gosh Darling, which I also wanted myself. There was only one left so I let her have it, then I accidently took advantage of Gosh 3 for 2 offer. Oops!

I've wanted the light weight duo fibre face brush for ages but it's always been sold out. I think it's quite similar to MAC 187, I'll be applying my foundation with it.

I don't use primer but I wanted to try a fairly inexpensive one so I got the velvet touch foundation primer. I've tried the new L'oreal one and it did nothing for me. I'll review this once I've used it

My free item was a bit gimicky and chosen in a hurry(they were shutting and actually asking us to leave!) but i got a Light 'N Shine lip glaze in 02 which is a raspberry pink and it's actually a nice gloss. Slightly less sparkly than dazzleglasses but also slightly less thick which I prefer. The mirror and lights are just a bonus.

That's it for hauling this month. I'll review any products if you want me to, and I'll be doing a CC dupe post later on
