I purchased some new make-up goodies this week and am super excited to share them with you! I found some great deals online and couldn’t resist picking up these items.

I’m currently trying out the products and would love to hear if there are any you would like to hear about first! That will help me decide what order to work on and post the articles to the site.  I’ve summarised what I purchased below.

I’ve been seeing so many great reviews of the new NYX Swear By It Eyeshadow Palette and couldn’t wait to get it. The palette contains 40 eyeshadows in a variety of shades and finishes.  You can read my full post, view photos and see swatches of the palette here.

I’ve always wanted to try the Bare Minerals Gen Nude Blushers and came across this fantastic set on QVC.  There are three blushers and a brush included in the set, for £26 (plus £3.95 P&P).  I think that is a great price, considering the blushers cost £22 to purchase individually.

I’ve been wanting to try out the Stila Liquid Glitter and Glow Eyeshadows for so long and found a couple of reduced shades on Look Fantastic.  I ordered Sunset Cove to try and am looking forward to trying it out!

Bare Minerals just released their Bare Pro Long Wear Lipsticks and I have been curious to see what they are like.  There are so many beautiful shades that I found it hard to decide which ones to get.  I came across a set of three on QVC UK for £33 (plus £3.95 P&P), which is a great deal as the lipsticks cost £20 individually.

Have you tried any of these products? It would be great to read your thoughts on them.

I felt like doing something different with my eye make-up yesterday and came up with this combination.  I added in a slick of pale blue liquid liner along the upper lashline to add an unexpected flash of colour to a peachy-pink, orange and brown eyeshadow look.

Tip: If the blue liner is too much for you, you can just leave it out and stick with the eyeshadow look.  I really liked how the eyeshadow combination looked on its own as well.

Here’s how to re-create this look:
