Make Up Haulin'

It feels like ages since I've done a make up haul; I usually do a haul showcasing what beauty bits I got for Christmas but I didn't get round to it this year, so here's a few bits that I did get for Christmas/have picked up or been sent since!

NYX soft matte lip creams // My fiancé Sam who is an absolutely angel (and who most of you know if you've ever read a blog post of mine before) got me 3 of the soft matte lip creams, and she picked shade names of places I've been to on my travels - how cute is that?! So I've got Cairo which is super pale and makes me look a bit dead if I wear it on its own, but I love it anyway, along with Amsterdam, a dark-ish tomato red, and Prague which is a dark berry pink. I love the formula, smell and longevity of these so much and they look fab!

Elizabeth Arden concealer & eyeshadows* // I'm fortunate to work with some amazing brands on this little blog of mine, but I still get al excited when big brands such as Elizabeth Arden want to work with me! They sent over a whole range of products, which I'll be reviewing due course but I wanted to show you the concealer (shade 3 but just about light enough for me to get away with) and two of their little single eyeshadows. The concealer is thick, almost moussey, but it blends in so easily and I can't wait to actually start using it. The eyeshadows - well, just look at that packaging. I've got Mystic Violet which is a dark purple/blue shade, and Graphite which is a shimmer silver-grey colour. I prefer Graphite, if I had to choose, as the consistency is just that bit smoother, but both are beautiful additions to my collection.

Bourjois Paris Volume 1 Seconde Mascara // Another pick from Sam, which I think she got because she knew I'd love the packaging so much - I'm a sucker for mascaras, though, because my lashes are so short and stumpy. The brush on this is huge, and I've not tried it yet but I'm so excited to get using it.

Fake Kittens Mascara* // These were in the goody bags from the Winter #CarnLIVal event Sam and I hosted (we've got another one coming up in April, which is SO exciting) - again I'm yet to use this because I've got a mascara on the go already, but it's always handy to have a stash of them and this one looks fab, plus it's cruelty free.

Pixi Bottom Lash Mascara* // One of my favourite skincare and make up brands is Pixi; their products are full of good ingredients plus they're beautiful, and I've never owned a specifically-for-your-bottom-lashes type of mascara so I'll be sure to let you know how I get on!

What make up products have you picked up lately?
