Collective Haul!

The last couple of weeks I've being picking bits and pieces up sporadically so I decided just to do a collective haul on the all of it.:)

Everything I've picked up recently:)

The Lip Products 
Carmex Lipbalm in Mint 
One of my local chemists finally started stocking the Revlon Colourburst lipglosses - something which I thought could only be gotten Stateside. I was really excited to see them and I've picked up 4 so far but I might have to pick up the other 3 that are available here lol! 
From top to bottom the shades are; Crystal Lilac, Peony, Rosegold and Papaya

Nail Varnish
There was on offer on Revlon nail varnish in the chemist 2 for €9 and they had gotten in stock the scented ones! (The same day as the colourburst - t'was a good day!) 
The Essie ones I stumbled across in a health food type store that stocks skincare products like L'Occitane and I hadn't been in there in ages and I was over the moon to discover that I now had a local Essie stockist! They don't have many colours - only about 10 different shades - but I didn't have any of them so that's good:) 
The colours from L-R Revlon Ocean Breeze, Beach, Passion Fruit (These 3 are all the scented ones my chemist had) Blue Lagoon. Essies's Mint Candy Apple and Tart Deco.

Face/Eye/Body Products
I bought the Revlon Photoready foundation not so long ago and while I really like it, I feel that the shade is just a little bit too dark for me during the day so I've regulated it to my night-time foundation which it's perfect for. So I obviously needed a new day one and I've been scraping out the remains of my Bobbi Brown one, which I also love but unfortunately there is no Bobbi Brown counter near me. I decided to try the Chanel Vitalumiére Aqua as I've read good reviews on it. I've used it a few times and it's lovely and light with a light coverage which is what I prefer. 
I also bought another Urban Decay Primer Potion, this time the one in Sin. It is a metallic type brown and works as well as the original. 
I also picked up Next's own brand perfume in Paradise. I love my Vicktor&Rolf Flowerbomb that I got for Christmas but I've been using it so much that I only have about a 1/4 left! I want it to last another while so I'm going to change my perfume about a bit more. Paradise smells divine. A proper summer holiday scent:) 


I've been desperate to get my hands on Urban Decay's Naked Palette but it is impossible to get. I heard that this Too Faced Natural Eye Palette was extremely good as well, so I found it online and got it to try and substitute my lemming for the Naked palette. It is a really good palette and I'll be doing a review on it soon. 

Blushes and Eyeshadow

Nars and Benefit are two more brands that I can't get locally and when I found out that Asos were stocking Nars I had to get some! I had also swatched Benefit's Bella Bamba blush the last time I was at a counter and I loved it but didn't get it at the time so when I saw it on Asos I decided to get it as well. The Nars eyeshadow I got is called Galapagos. I saw Dulce Candy on YouTube using it in this tutorial and I loved it. The blush is called  Sex Appeal and I wanted a sheerish pale pink blush and that seemed ideal.

I really need to go on a spending ban:-/

Look out for upcoming reviews/e.o.t.d/n.o.t.d. on these products!
