Hauling | MakeUp Geek & Maybelline


 Its haul time again people! There's a couple of things that have been on my wish list for some time, and every time I see them pop up on someone's blog it reminds me of all the lovely things I'm yet to buy. My first order to Makeup Geek was made over 3 weeks ago now, and this week they finally arrived ( with a customs charge, which was a bit annoying). I've heard many people talking about their eye shadows, and how they're on par with MAC, minus the price tag, so I thought it was about time I tried them for myself! I got three eye shadows, a Z palette and the Soft Dome Shadow Brush.
 Left - Right Crème Brulee, Cocoa Bear and Peach Smoothie all $5.99 each
All the shades I got are matte.  I've been looking for some warm matte transition colours that I could use in the crease, I couldn't seem to find any that weren't in numerous different palettes, and not wanting to buy two or three palettes I decided these were the best option. On first inspection of the shadows they seem buttery soft and well pigmented, and I hope to create some make up looks with these in the coming weeks so keep your eye out for them!
The Soft Dome Brush ($7.99) is slightly tapered and looks perfect for defining the crease, the soft bristles look ideal for buffing and defusing the eye shadows so I look forward to giving it a whirl.
Maybelline had a 3 for 2 offer in Boots so of course I had to pick up a few things. Firstly was the 'Even Better Skin' foundation, a foundation that "Evens out skin tone instantly and delivers better looking skin in 3 weeks"!! With claims like that I was sold instantly and look forward to my "better skin" in the future! Well I'm hoping anyway!
No shopping trip is complete without a lipstick purchase and this trip was no different. I picked up two lippies. Colour Sensational 'Shocking Coral', a bright vivid pinky coral which I'm in love with already! And the Colour Sensational Shine Gloss in ' Glorious Grapefruit', a sheer peachy coral shade with a tiny hint of shimmer that looks natural and understated on the lips.

What products have you been hauling recently? Have you tried any of these?

  1. Wish the Better Skin ran a little lighter so that I could test it out!
