Haul, Review & Swatches, New Facebook Profile and Eyeko Promo! ♥

Hello guys! I'd like to share with you a bunch of stuff I picked up lately. Most were from swaps - check out this post if you're interested in swapping, and some I bought from my local drugstore, Boots. I got some MAC stuff I've wanted for a while, a Benefit gift from a friend, as well as a new mascara from Maybelline, and dental care items for my sensitive teeth. Enjoy! ♥

MAC Ladyblush cream blush. This is my first blush from MAC from the Cream Blush range, although I do have some Cremeblend Blushes, and Cream Colour Bases which I use as blush. After how much I loved the cream colour bases from the Stylishly Yours collection, I decided to venture out into trying MAC's cream blushes. From online swatches, I fell in love with Ladyblush, and I'm so happy I received it in a swap~! ♥

Comparing it to Tickle Me Pink cream colour base from the Stylishly Yours collection, Ladyblush is a more yellow-based light pink, whereas Tickle Me Pink is a blue-based light pink. And if you watched Disney's latest Princess movie Tangled, Ladyblush reminds me so much of that innocent flush on Rapunzel lips and cheeks! ♥♥

I also got the MAC Colour 4 quad from MAC Spring Colour Forecast which is comprised of 4 gold tone eyeshadows. It has Manila Paper which is a veluxe pearl white, Flip which is a frosty light yellow orange, Aztec Brick which is a veluxe pearl orange copper colour, and Creole Beauty, a veluxe pearl yellow-toned bronze.

Mini Bourjois eyeshadow in 10. This is such a gorgeous gorgeous colour. It is a very sparkly dark mauve colour. But like most pigment-form eyeshadows, I'm not really fond of this as it has the potential of getting too messy. I probably might not use it that much. :(

Benefit Hoola Bronzer. This one has been well-hyped in the different blogs, and I'm sorry to say that I support the hype too! I love this bronzer. Its a matte and yellow-toned. I think it is quite similar in colour to NARS Laguna, which is just sparkly. NARS Casino on the other hand is a lot more red toned. I think Hoola is my new HG bronzer! Thank you Akisa for sending this to me! ♥

Maybelline The Falsies Black Drama mascara. I love Maybelline mascaras in general, and I love superblack , long and thick - basically like False eyelashes, but without the falsies. When I saw this new mascara at the store for £2 off, I did not hesitate to pick it up. I hope it will live up to my expectations! Oh, it has really cute packaging too.

Despite my obsession with taking care of my teeth, I somehow developed tooth sensitivity within the last year (BOO! :( ), which meant that I could tolerate sweets and cold things less than before. This was a big annoyance to me as I love my chocolates, cakes and ice cream, but now I have to watch how much I eat to prevent tooth pain! I've been to a few dentists already, and they say my teeth are fine, so I'm trying to look for a way that would make the pain less. I got Listerine Total Care Sensitive Mouthwash and Colgate toothpastes in Sensitive Enamel Protect and Sensitive Total. I'm trying these out, and hopefully my teeth might get better.



I also just created a Facebook account for my blog. It's very new, I will update it soon. If you enjoy reading my posts on the blog, please support my page by clicking like on the button above!! Thank you ♥


Oh by the way, Eyeko is having a promotion on their website: Wowzer 3 for 2 on all Eyeko...pop in any 3 Eyeko products in your basket and when you checkout the cheapest will be free! This ends on Friday the 14th of Jan 2011 midnight UK time.

Phew that was a long post. Well, I hope this was helpful. Have you bought anything new that you have been loving lately? And Can you suggest any good Dental Care products for Sensitive Teeth? ♥ ♥

  1. I developed a tooth senstivity issue shortly after I started using an electric toothbrush and was using Crest Pro Health. After discontinuing their use and using the colgate toothpaste you bought, the issue is gone. Maybe you're just brushing too hard?

  2. @graphology- It is very pretty. I'm so happy I was able to get a hold of it! ♥

  3. @prettyaspeaches- Thanks for sharing your experience! Its very helpful for me to know someone who has been through what I am currently going through. =)

    I don't really know if I'm brushing too hard because nothing has changed in my brushing style for the last 10 years. My problem has been going on since just last year, using different toothbrushes and toothpastes. I tried Sensodyne toothpaste for a while but that didn't really change anything for me. One of my dentists thinks I probably grind my teeth somehow - maybe in my sleep? Or when I eat, but I don't really know.

    I hope this new dental stuff will work. Which Colgate toothpaste were you referring to? x

  5. I don't know if you can get Act Fluoride Rinse at Boots but my dentist recommended it to me for my tooth sensitivity. It does work. Also he suggested I try a soft toothbrush vs. the medium I had been using.

  6. @Zoe - thank you hun! x

    @Danielle- Thank you so much for the suggestions. A softer toothbrush is what I haven't thought of, I will buy one. I'll look for Act Fluoride Rinse too. Thanks again xx
