April Haul

29 Apr 2012

Hello everyone,

I swore off purchasing new makeup but under the pretext of a shoot i went on another spree (and didn't even buy one of the initial items I had in my head to buy).

O well, none is wasted and I do have good use for each and everyone of them.

my entire haul - 2 mascaras, 1 blush, 1 e/l pencil and 1 gel liner (by now, I am sure you all know that I am partial towards the lashes and liners)
I am yet to use this mascara for a full day but i loved the effect when i tested it on my lashes. They were all separated without looking scanty or thin.
For full, volumising effect i prefer Great Lash to the Voluminous Million Lashes. The effect was instant too and even though they were not obviously seperated, the volume I got was beautiful.
I am yet to entirely figure this out (ie. the gel liner effect) but you bet it won't be for long. I will definitely be tweeting about whether this product worked for me or not.
ah, my very first Sleek blush and I am already very impressed with it. As you can see from the swatch it is a true matte red colour. Soon to be my favourite red blush.
Iv watched Maybelline youtube videos for the Lasting Drama liners but never met anyone who had actually used one of them. Well, i found one on my spree and I picked it up.
I love the fact that the applicator brush it comes with can be used to create thin and thick lines. If im not careful this might just be incorporated into my personal kit.
