HAUL: I hate that word.

I bought a few things while I was away and thought I'd show you all..
In Superdrug it was 3for2 across all cosmetics so I got a few things I needed wanted.

Max Factor, Bewitching Coral.
Benefit Full Finish Lipstick, No Competition.
Estee Lauder, Pure Colour 55 Blushing Creme.

YESSSS, I have a slight lippy addiction at the mo!

NYC Smooch Proof 16H Lipstain, Berry Long Time.

This stain is absolute rubbish, I've used it twice and it has almost dried up. it doesnt last 16 hours, you'd be lucky if it lasted 1 hour.

Swatches in same order as above.
Bewitching Coral and Blushing look very similar in the swatches but they are completely different.
None of these are shades that I would usually go for but I was feeling brave, All 3 lipsticks are long lasting and didnt dry my lips out. Even in the swatch you can see how pathetic the lip tint is, the colour pay-off is almost nada! 


Revlon, Facets Of Fuchsia.
Rimmel, Disco Ball.
Rimmel, Hot List.

Facets Of Fuchsia has been doing the blog rounds lately so I'm sure you have all saw it before, I tried to do some swatches but my cam is rubbish, as you can tell. The polish is black with different sized chunks of fuchsia glitter packed into it. It's so pretty, looks like you've got wee gem stones set into your nails. I needed 3 coats before it was fully opaque.
Hot List is a really unusual colour, it's a good dupe for Chanel Paradoxal! The wide brush applied the colour evenly and the formula was opaque after 2 coats.
 Disco Ball impressed me the most, I bought it just for the sake of it but I'm glad I did.

3 coats on top of Leighton Denny - Chocoholic and blurry to show how sparkly it is. It is a cross between glitter and holo, depending on how many coats you layer. I wouldnt really wear it over brown but I just wanted to try it out. It will change any polish you already own, making boring shades all glitzy for xmas.

It really needs to be seen in person.

Beyonce Pulse, on offer in Semi Chem 30ml £19.99

A few months ago I got a sample of this from Debenhams, I tried it on my arm and couldnt stop sniffing it all day. Pulse is more of a summery fragrance, light, fresh, sweet and clean but I dont really care, I wear what I want no-matter the time of year. The only thing I dont like is the bottle, it just looks so cheap, same as most celeb perfumes but I love the scent too much to let a naff bottle get in the way of buying it.

I got a few other things but they arent beauty related so I'll save them for another post.


  1. I love the Benefit lipsticks so much!
