UK haul Part 2

I love these palettes. I think they're super cute. But they're a little difficult to use.So far I've only used the gray and black one. I had a lot of creasing. I'm not sure if it was from the primer or from the product itself though. But the color payoff is great.  Plus, they're super cute!
I've used this bronzer but I haven't used the eyeshadow yet. I liked the bronzer but I used it more as a blush and not like a true bronzer application. I love packaging, that's really what drew me to it. As far as the eyeshadow, the packaging is plain but the colors are pretty.

Barry M dazzle dust and eyeshadow trio. I've used the trip once, not impressed with the pigmentation.If you're going for a more soft look then it's great. I haven't used the dazzle dust yet.

Britain's Next Top Model make up brushes. I haven't used them yet. They look really pretty and I love that they came with tweezers. I don't think they will be spectacularly life changing but I just liked them so I bought them.

This palette is so cute and I can't wait to use it. But I have a very similar Mirabella one. I really liked the packaging though and I couldn't resist. I might be giving the Mirabella one away since I have this one now.

I have a few more lip glosses than the ones that are pictured here. My husband bought me the ones with the "R" and I bought the other two myself. And I bought the 2True eyeliner myself. Overall I'm happy with all of these products.

These MUA eyeshadows are a steal! The pigmentation is amazing. They're so creamy and blendable. I'm in love.

I love these liquid liners but I used the glitter one and it burned my eye. I didn't even get any in my eye. Not that I could see anyway. So I thought that was a little strange. A product that is supposed to be used near the eye and it burns? Hmm. Anyway, the colors are great and I will definitely get a lot of use out of them.

This eyeshadow was a random one. I saw it and I love the color so I bought it. Its really pretty. This picture doesn't do it any justice.

 I haven't used this palette yet but I think it's really pretty. I've used both of these lip vinyls and I think they're amazing. They're really opaque and not sticky at all. Love them.

This is the Primark bag that all this make up is in. I love this bag. I think its so pretty.

I think that's everything. There's really no way of telling though lol I really want to start doing videos but I'm pretty clueless. I have a camera and I have a video editing/movie making software so in theory I can make videos. But there will be a steep learning curve. But hopefully in the next 6 months I can get a video or two out there.

UK Haul (Pic heavy)

I am finally posting pics! I know it took forever, well not forever but longer than I had hoped, but this blogging lark is a lot of work! And I have a new kitty and I've been so sick. So there's lots of things going on in my house. My cat doesn't like it when I use the computer so I've been trying my best not to scare her but really, she needs to get used to the noises in the house and the computer is one she's going to hear a lot.

But here they are. Pics!!

I love MUA (Make Up Academy). Not only are they really well pigmented but they're affordable.

Acid Palette

Primer Palette
Hello Kitty! Love this stuff. Great pigmentation.

Couldn't pass these up for 50 pence!
Beauty UK is really affordable. I have seen lots of great reviews. I haven't used the eyeshadow but the lip vinyls are amazing!

There will be more pics and swatches. It does take some time to do but I will do my best to make time. Like I said, there's a lot going in my world right now. Of course I LOVE make up and this is how I relax but it still takes time.

I love everything I got and I can't wait to use it all. I really need to set up my video camera and learn how to use it lol and get some videos on youtube.

I'm going to do a second installment of my haul too. As you can see from the first pic, there's more in that group pic than I have pictured alone. If that makes sense lol

If you want swatches let me know!
