MAYBELLINE MINI HAUL

 Well I got a bit snap-happy with this post, but that's because it feels like I haven't posted in ages! Back in stoke I did a wee Boots haul, but by complete coincidence all the products were maybelline! I stocked up on some few essentials to see me through the fast approaching A/W13!

Babylips: Yes a few weeks ago I jumped on the Babylips bandwagon and ended up buying all the colour-pigmented shades: Cherry Me, Pink Punch and Peach Kiss. Thoughts? Well, they're over-all fabulous! I love the fact these are pigmented lip balms. They kept my lips hydrated for hours, smelled gorgeous and 2 out of 3 gave a lovely colour on the lips, meaning for those autumn days where my lips dry I can style a colour without worrying about crust lips (eww!). Peach Kiss doesn't give much of colour, but I've been using it as a 'home colour' to just use as a lip balm any time.
 Colour Show: Every one knows I'm a self acclaimed nail addict! So when I got a glimpse at a model rocking these colours in a two-tone effect I had to get my hands on them! The colours are equally highly pigmented and dry fairly quickly giving a high-shine. There staying power is more than average, especially when a top coat is added. The colours are nice to go along with autumn shades that add a pop of colour, but not too overpowering.
Master Drama Chromatics: This is a gorgeous metallic eyeliner, was a perfect addition to anyone's A/W13 collections, smoky looks are bang on this coming season and adding a bit of metallic is a personal favourite of mine. It glides on easily and doesn't run or smudge, giving it great staying power for a night out.

So these have been some lovely little additions to my growing a/w collection. I'm loving Babylips, I just wish they had some more colours. I think I'll definitely be investing in some more Colour Show Nail varnish's as they are fabulous! Metallic's are bang on trend this season, I may worry I've been investing in too many! (Is that possible? haha) 

Tell me what you think of this haul - have you tried any of these? Can you recommend any more items like these to me!

  4. I definitely need to get my hands on those nail polish shades, they look gorgeous! I found some really nice nail polishes by Max Factor, they are kind of holographic and multi-tonal, so the colour has a nice shine to it and looks different depending on the lighting. I have this Dazzling Blue shade and I'm hoping to pic up more!

    You can find them on the Boots website here xx
