Beauty Haul

New Year, New Make up?!
So I did some make up shopping again... oops! 
I thought I'd give you a look at what I bought and some mini reviews... Swatches of the lipsticks at the end of the post.

NARS Audacious Lipstick in Annabella - £25.00

NARS Audacious Lipstick in Anita - £25.00
I love the formula of these Audacious lipsticks they are so creamy and highly pigmented, and last forever on the lips. Ive been eyeing these beauties up for ages and finally decided to take the plunge and get them I mean one of them shares my name, I couldn't not get it...
The packaging is also super luxurious and sleep with a magnetic closure.
Anita is a lovely nude shade which would flatter a lot of skin tones, very much a Kylie Jenner shade for the lips.
Annabella is a bright red, which i would say is a more summery red with almost an orange tint, a very statement colour that I cant wait to wear on nights out.
Lancôme Eye set - £21.00
Lancome are my absolute favourite brand for mascara, the packaging is always stunning but most of all i've never tried a bad mascara from them, however the Grandiose is my holy grail mascara (why are you so expensive??!!) The wand is the perfect shape for getting into all of the small inner corner lashes so really helps to give you really full, thick lashes. The eyeliner is also amazing and stays put really well throughout the day without smudging which is a real issue for me as my eyes water a LOT. Both the mascara and eyeliner stay put really well throughout the day, so when it comes to removing it the Bi-facial on a cotton pad removes it like a dream without scrubbing at your eyes or irritating them.

MAC Lipstick in Patisserie £15.50
This lipstick is a re-purchase, its my go to everyday nude I adore it. The finish is a lustre which means the lipstick is pretty sheer on the lips and not such a full on colour which means its super easy to chuck on the lips without using a mirror (which is perfect when I'm running late for uni...)

MAC Lipstick in Only You - £17.00
I am a sucker for limited edition products from MAC so I HAD to get something from the Ellie Goulding for MAC collection. Both lipstick shades in the collection are nudes but I thought this shade would suit me the most, its a deep pinkish nude and again is really flattering and would suit a lot of skin tones. The packaging is lovely as well with Ellie's monogram in pose gold on the tube and embossed on the actual lipstick which gives it a really luxurious feel. The cremesheen finish gives the lipstick a glossy look once applied which is very flattering.

Beauty Blender - £16.00
I've not tried this yet so i cant really review it, but I cant wait to apply my foundation with this as I've heard such great reviews - I'll keep you updated with how my foundation looks when applied with this!

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer £17.50
Once again this product is a re-purchase and is my holy grail concealer, it doesn't budge and completely covers any blemishes or discolouration. Its pretty pricy but lasts me ages and is far better than any other concealers I've tried so I would highly recommend you try it!
