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! ♥♥
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 ♥
