Mini Makeup Haul

Hi girlies!

So once again I found myself in Boots (I just cannot keep away!) I had only popped in for an eyeliner, and of course, I came out with more, so I thought I'd share with you what I bought and my thoughts on them...



Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in 125 £7.99 (Buy here)
I've really wanted to try this foundation for so long, but I currently have four others on the go, so wasn't sure if I should really buy another, but as usual, I caved!
Although I tan naturally, and my skin is usually an olive colour; last time i got a foundation matched, they said I had a pink undertone to my skin, which really shocked me! So when looking at the fit me foundation colours (there are so many) I went for the palest shade(the sun's been hiding too long,)with a pink undertone, and this seems to be such a perfect fit for my skin! Yay!
The foundation is smooth, covers my spots so well, and just one pump is plenty! (i usually use 2 with most foundations) 

Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner 24H in 01 Black £7.99 (Buy here)
So I am absolutely hopeless when it comes to using eyeliner, and particularly doing flicks! But I had seen some really good reviews on this eyeliner, and that it was easy to achieve a flick with the brush provided! And waddya know? The reviews were spot on! I am so in love with this eyeliner, Its so smooth, easily glides on, stays on all day (hence the 24h ;p) and I can actually do a decent flick with it! Wahoo!

Maybelline The Falsies Volum' Express in Black Drama £7.99 (Buy here)
I can never find a decent mascara, in all honesty, I never like mascaras, there always clumpy and dry out too quick, and I never really rate them! After seeing this one in beauty blogs and reviews all the time, I thought with Maybelline being on 3 for 2, that I may aswell give it a go (what's another one to the collection? right?) and oh my gosh, this is so good, after applying this, I actually appear to have long, curly lashes! Finally! Its also a great colour (yes, the right shade of black makes all the difference) and it doesn't seem to clump! (well, not yet!)

Barry M Gelly Hi-shine Nail Paint in Lychee £3.99 (Buy here)
Again, another product that I have wanted for so long, and I finally caved and bought it! (why?! do I always cave?!) I seriously could not wait to get this on, I was that eager, that I painted my thumb in the doctors, whilst waiting to attend an appointment, and I found it rather amusing that whilst its drying you can tap it, and in a couple of minutes it bouces back, and looks like you never touched it! ( I know, I know, small minds...) I really loved the colour, and of course the shine, but to be honest, i work with nails, and I am used to having gel polish on, which is touch dry when cured, and I just do not have the patience to wait for this to dry! However I think I may try it under my gel topcoat and see how that works!

Well, Thankyou for reading lovelies, if you too like the products or maybe don't, please let me know your opinion in the comments box,

Much Love Abbie x
