New Purchases



Rimmel Glam Eyes HD 008 True Union Jack Eyeshadow Quad


Last weekend whilst Superdrug browsing, I picked up these 2 gorgeous goodies and instantly threw them in my basket. The Rimmel Glam Eyes HD 008 True Union Jack Eyeshadow Quad (what a mouthful!) is so pretty and loving anything Union Jack, I couldn’t wait to get stuck in. It’s highly pigmented and I love the colours, not normally colours I’d choose on their own if it wasn’t for the pretty flag.


How pretty is it though! It isn't colours I'd normally pick and I haven't had chance to re-create any looks with it yet but on the back it does show the order to use the colours across your lid, crease etc to create an example look. It was quite expensive considering I don't use eyeshadow every day but it is my contribution to being patriotic for the Olympics/Football and being British in general. That's a good excuse right?



NYC Colour Wheel Mosaic Face Powder


I bought this while looking at things to buy for my Hong Kong swap with Jacq and picked it up for her but really wanted it myself too! It's a beautiful colour once mixed together and has a hint of shimmer, but not too much. I've been using this every day or alternating with the Miners Cosmetics Blush (see here). I've really got into using Mosaic Blusher's now and find them to give me a lot healthier glow than one colour. 


What do you think of my new (ish) purchases? All these sales are so naughty for my bank balance and I've since bought a couple more things..when will it end?!

  4. Love the look of the Mosaic blush - looks pretty. I am a sucker for all the patriotic limited edition collections at the moment & i dont know why. You picked a cute eyeshadow looks like you get a few colour options in such a small shadow. Looks great

    A long long time ago I picked up a mosaic mineralise pressed powder (I wish I could remember the brand!) and it was amazing. It evened out my skintone and gave me a healthy glow. Boo to me for not remembering the brand!
