My New Make Up Purchases

A few weeks ago I spent the weekend in Newcastle with two of my best friends. We had a great weekend catching up and having early birthday celebrations for my friend Anna (stylishimoto).

On the saturday we went shopping which was really good and I decided to treat myself to a few new make up bits as I had just finished my second year and I felt like I deserved after all the work I had done so today I thought I would share with you what I got...

Nyx Blush in PB 11 Taupe - £6.00 - My friend bought this a while ago and kept telling me how good it was so when she ordered another one I asked her to get me one and she was right! Its such a nice colour for subtle blush or it can be used as a contour shade as it is matte. (in depth review coming soon)

Mac Sketch Eye shadow - £10.00 - I got another Mac eyeshadow to add to my quad palette I bought not so long ago (post about it here) I got the colour Sketch which is a dark purpley brown colour. I really love purple eyeshadows as I think they suit my hazel eyes.

I had seen this lipsticks on quite a few You Tube videos and really wanted to try them as I needed some more neutral colours, I was originally going to get two but it was on three for two so I picked another one which was is a really nice summery coral shade,

Benefit Roller Lash - £19.50 - I have been wanting a full size of this mascara ever since I got a sample of it in an Elle magazine (review here) and I finally got it! I decided to buy it with my Boots advantage card points as I had about £35 pounds worth so I thought why not! I would seriously recommend getting a Boots card if you go to Boots a lot as it really is worth collect the points.
