It's safe to say I have purchased way too much make up in the past week or so. I thought I'd share my goodies. 

Starting off with the make up geek individual eyeshadow pans. Starting from the left, is the foiled eyeshadow which gives off a metallic finish. The first colour I purchased is 'grandstand' (thanks Huma for answering my annoying "what MUG colours do I need pls?" question). 

Secondly, I purchased a duo chrome eyeshadow which apparently adds a duochrome-y effect to your eyes. This shade is 'voltage'. When swatching this, it's not very duo-chromey but maybe it'll look better when applied to eyes? I'm comparing this to my duochrome single 'Chameleon Glow' Topshop eyeshadow in 'Shuffle The Cards', which is the best duochrome sort of shadow I've used. 

The last three are the normal eyeshadow pans in the colours Shimma Shimma, Cinderella & Latte. 

Next are the Morphe individual shadows, the two in the black from the left to right are Granite and Lustrous. They are the standard individual pans which are about £4. I think this is so affordable for the quality! The one in the red is the premium eyeshadow palette in Date Night. This pan is about 3 times bigger than the usual ones, and it's crazy pigmented. It's £5.50 which is mad cheap guys. These prices are from beauty bay. :) I'm so excited to fill up my Z palette. 

I also purchased the Eye Essential 7 Piece set from BH cosmetics from beauty bay. I've not ever tried a BH cosmetics brush and really want to, resulting in me buying 7 at once. *rolling eye face emoji* 

Now to talk about my glitter obsession pls. 

I literally can't get enough of glitter. I think it's a winter/festive thing, which resulted in me searching for some good quality glitter. This Beauty Bakerie 'sprinkles' in white from Cult Beauty came with a free glue (yay) and it's so pretty. So if you've read my posts before, you know I have an obsession with Charlotte Tilbury. This glitter concoction has gold glitter, and the white shadow blends out to be translucent, so you're left with gold glitter. This gold glitter is pretty much a dupe for the glitter in the CT dolce vita palette which I am slowly running low on. I am so happy.

Look how gorgeous? This is the LA Splash cosmetics crystallized glitters from Beauty Bay. Left to right: Long Island & Mai Tai. I used lash glue with this and didn't like the outcome.. then my Beauty Bakerie delivery came and I tried my free glue, and it worked a lot better. So yeah, use actual glitter glue, not lash glue. They're also so so pretty and exactly what I was looking for.

I always forget to use setting spray. I've had my setting spray from Urban Decay for years, so thought it was time to try something new. Maybe there's a reason I don't use mine at the moment? So hoping I can see a difference in this Gerards Cosmetics Slay All Day spray in peach. Smells yum.

Not the best picture (ngl; taking pictures of SO much make up is tiring), but this is the Hourglass vanish foundation stick in beige. I purchased this from Space NK and gosh, I love it. This product is magnificent. I've used it everyday since I've purchased, which is quite surprising as CT magic foundation is my holy grail. It blends out so easy (I prefer a Flat Kabuki instead of a beauty blender for this) and it looks so smooth. The colour I picked up for my skin matches really well, and I'm sure people have complimented my foundation more recently. It's £42, but I think it's worth it. I'm just hoping it lasts me more than a month.

I've not tried any Huda Beauty matte lipstick shades yet, so the first one I purchased is flirt. I really like this colour.

So I purchased the Lime Crime Velvetines in Shroom and Teddy Bear. I also love these, they're probably one of my favourite matte lipsticks after the Gerard Cosmetics ones.

Lastly, I purchased the Ultimate glow kit by ABH. I have the 'that glow' kit and although I use it occasionally, it's not my favourite. This seemed like a different formula, so also excited to try this. I got this from Cult Beauty, but I know it sells out quite fast when they restock. It's still in stock right now though!

I don't think I need any more products.. until next week.
