Huge combined haul post

Hi guys,
my giveaway ends at midnight tonight so hurry if you would like to enter!

Just thought I would show you what I have been buying recently, which is loads as got student loan at the start of the month :)

Also there are a couple of prizes I have won recently in giveaways that I want to say a huge thank you for to the bloggers they were from

So I will start with the things I have bought (all bought by me!) in superdrug/boots etc

Beauty UK palette 5 - more purple in real life, it looks blue here, basically my fave colours in one palette - very happy with this bargain
Beauty UK Metallic sparks pencil in silver - I saw these reviewed on Lipglossiping and they looked gorgeous
ELF waterproof eyeliner pen -I've had a few of these before and love them!
ELF eyeshadow quad in day 2 night - very impressed, the taupey shade is amazing!
ELF Mist and set - this was free with the order and I like it so far
Forgot to take photos of the ELF nail polishes I got but they are twinkle and metal madness I think!
Nails inc and coke heather grey - I've got this on now, i like it but don't love it
Evie @ Peacocks blusher - very impressed with this, lovely colour
17 photo flawless lashes - great mascara but can't see any colour in it, just looks black to me!

Next is an order I made from allcosmeticswholesale

L'oreal HIP cream shadow paints in steely and nervy - I have wanted to try some things from this brand for ages, wish they did it in the UK!
L'oreal voluminous carbon black - I've had the regular black one for ages and loved it but this is amazing!
MAC lipsticks in on hold and laugh a lot - laugh a lot I got as a back up because I love it so much but this looks slightly different to the other one, neither are from mac so I guess one or both is fake!although ACW states that everything is genuine.

Next is things I have bought from blog sales. Sorry I can't remember who I got some of them from, I took too long to do this post!
The first is from Vex in the city Thanks Yinka!

MAC liberty of London shell pearl - backup because I used it most days
MAC Cream colour base pearl - heard a lot of good things about it so really wanted to try it!
MAC lipstick sophisto - love it already!

Next are 2 mac lipsticks, sorry can't remember who from, please let me know if it was you so I can link it!sorry awful photo too!

MAC viva glam cyndi - again I heard alot about this and it is gorgeous!
MAC blueblood lipstick - very pretty!

Then these nail polishes I bought from Lydia Thank you!

China glaze custom kicks - I want to do a comparison of this with rimmel sky high, they look very similar
China glaze fifth avenue - I love this kind of dusky pink!
MAC bad fairy - I really wanted this but it sold out, this is definitely comparable with Accessorize pink spice, I'll do that soon!

And now my lovely lovely prizes!

In December I won the beautiful Rosh's giveaway and the prize was to choose a MAC lipstick and eyeshadow, amazing!

So I chose sweetie lipstick and silver ring eyeshadow (which is my first from mac!) They are both lurrvely!Thanks so much!

Nearing the end now (promise!) Recently I won lovely Chrissy's giveaway and the prizes were to chose 2 things from lush and a MAC blusher!

I have never bought anything from Lush before so I asked Chrissy to chose for me, and what she got me was sweetie pie jelly and a soap (sorry don't know which but it smells amazing!!!!!) Looking forward to trying these out!
And I chose pink swoon blusher as I've never had a MAC blusher and I've heard so many lovely things about this recently (I think lovely is my new favourite word, need to be more creative!) It didn't disappoint, it is a very pretty pink, perfect for everyday.

AND... I can't believe how generous Chrissy was, she included an ELF mini makeup collection too! It is so cute and has everything in it (blusher, bronzer, eyebrow powder, lip glosses, eye shadows and an eyeliner!) Also there were some little sweeties which I shared with my housemates! Thanks so much Chrissy, I love everything!

At last I have reached the end, I applaud you if you have read all of this!Please just let me know if you want more details (!) photos or reviews. I need to wait for some daylight to do swatches!

I will be back tomorrow or Wednesday (depending how long it takes to sort out the entries) to announce THE WINNER!!

Hi guys,
just a quick post to let you know about something I saw today. I was just having a wander around superdrug and saw that GOSH have a lot of their best products on half price offer at the moment, including the velvet touch eyeliners, nail polishes and eyeshadow trios and quads.

I got a soft n shine lipbalm as well as some non-gosh stuff which I will take photos of later

Hope this is useful
