I got mail ;D

I think this week has been the best week ever for haulage. On Monday I got all that Urban Decay stuff etc. Yesterday, my 25pc Fraulein brush set arrived in the post – they are AMAZING and I can’t wait to show you them. I just haven’t taken pictures of them yet ’cause I think they need a big special post just to give the smallest bit of credit to how brilliant they are ;D. AND my order from Shopcraze.com arrived today! Here’s what I got:

Three NYX Round Lipsticks in Circe, Strawberry Milk and Thalia, and a sample of MAC’s Vanilla pigment. Swatch tiiime!

I’ve been so excited about the lipsticks since I ordered them which must’ve been a couple of weeks ago now (but the shipping was quicker than the estimate they gave me ^_^;). I love how different they all look in natural light or flash! They’re all very creamy and moisturising without feeling greasy or oily.

Circe is a gorrrgeous nude colour, much much nicer than the oily GOSH 134, not chalky or drying like the Barry M 101, and not too pale like MAC Myth *glare*.


Strawberry Milk is the CUTEST bright bubblegum pink. Om nom nom, it looks good enough to eat!


Thalia is sort of like.. I don’t know how to explain it. It’s sort of a heathery pink colour I guess. The no flash picture doesn’t do it much justice, it’s really a lot nicer!


The MAC pigment sample is the first MAC product I’ve ever owned. Vanilla is definitely very pretty, I swatched it both dry and wet over UDPP but I can’t tell much difference between wet and dry application. Can you?


So yeah, really pretty but I don’t think I’d ever need to invest in a full size jar of a MAC pigment. The shopcraze sample was pretty generous, it says on their website that their samples are a 1/4 teaspoon but it looks more like a 1/2 teaspoon to me! I think I might just collect a range of different samples but like I said I don’t think I’ll never need a full size jar.

I leave you with my FOTD, featuring Vanilla pigment and NYX Strawberry Milk ;D

    You NEED to order from shopcraze! NYX Lipsticks are $1.95 each and pigment samples are between $2 and $3 depending on if the pigments are like pro or limited edition or anything. And shipping to UK is $5.90 on order under $25, and it took about 2 weeks to arrive. GOOD EXPERIENCE!

    Sankyuu :3 Nuuu I haven’t done a foundy review but I can doooo! That’ll be something I can do for yousss in the next week or so because I haven’t got any packages heading my way now! xo

  3. OMG HOW CHEAP? It would be an insult to not buy from them for prices so crazy cheap ;) my philosophy! hakuna matata! (ok not quite lion king style but) :P
    CUS DAAAYUM that is good! Ok ok will need to save up for a bit – have a feeling this week i’ll be strapped for moola and will need it direly! *intuition waves* woooah

    and woooo! I’ve always wondered about that foundy, sorto found my HG but.. always nice to have a backup! xx

  4. Haha yaaaay for supercheap websites :D
    I knoooow, I just can’t stop spending money.. see my grandad won some money on premium bonds and divided it between me, my sister and our cousins and I can’t stop spending it even though I will REALLY need it soon because there’s no jobs around here at the moment *siiigh*

    Yeah dream satin liquid probably not my HG but I’ve only tried a couple of different foundys before but my skin’s kinda clear anyway so I don’t need masses of coverage or anythaaang.. I don’t know ^_^;
