A Drugstore Haul

Buying new makeup is one of the most satisfying feelings that ever existed. Even if I already own the product, buying a new one makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Maybe I have a little spending addiction, but I like to think of it as a hobby. Some people collect stamps, I collect makeup!

The Haul
L'oreal Infallible Mattifying Base Primer - This has recently became my everyday go-to primer, it seems to have an everlasting barrier against the overwhelming oiliness of my skin which is astonishing to say the least. It for me hands down beats the Makeup Revolution Face Base Primer which is quite a big achievement as I was a huge fan of that product in the past.

L'oreal Infallible Mattifying Foundation - I'm still yet to try out this product, but have heard some amazing things about it's finish, so i'll get back to you guys on that one!

L'oreal Glam Bronze La Terra Powder - I've used this everyday since purchase, it is simply fantastic. First of all its got great pigmentation, a small amount goes a long way and its friggin' huge, meaning it's definitely worth the £12.99 price tag. 

Revlon Colorstay Foundation - This product is my all time favourite foundation, which thankfully now comes with a pump making it ten times easier to use. I find its the foundation that best matches my complexion, and the one that seems to last all day even with my oily skin. 

Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil - A staple in my makeup bag, I've literally always used this product and doubt I will ever venture away from it. It's just so easy to draw on those brows in the morning, who has time to sit and apply gels etc.. before work?! Not me that's for sure. 

Soap and Glory Kick Ass Fake Awake Concealer - This product is amazing at getting rid of dark circles and imperfections, it doesn't quite cover up my cholesterol marks but it is only available in the one shade so maybe if it was a little darker who knows?! I have pretty bad bags under my eyes on a daily basis (nice one genes), but this product does a great job at hiding them, so I'd 100% recommend picking one of these bad boys up to try out. 

Bourjois Magic Nail Polish 1 Second Remover - A lazy way of taking off your finger and toe nail polish, what more could you want from a product? I haven't actually used this one just yet, but have tried the pink version and definitely prefer the scent of that one to this (yuck!).

Lottie London Soap Star Solid Brush Cleaners - Solid brush cleaners are my absolute favourite way to washing my makeup brushes. I find it quite difficult to get my brushes completely clean when using shampoo, so when I found out Lottie London had a solid brush cleaner I instantly wanted it. It's been an absolute god send. My brushes are all now looking and feeling like new, and I want to wash them all the time which is definitely a little unusual for me!

What I got for my 24th birthday

Well it finally happened guys. I turned 24 years old last week, and I have to admit its a scary thought. It only feels like last week I was turning 19, and heading to Chester Zoo to celebrate before a night on the town. If anyone knows where Bernard's watch is please let me know!

So I guess you're wanting to know what it is I actually got..

I decided to treat myself to MAC's Velvet Teddy lipstick which has been so hyped up by fellow bloggers within the past few months I just had to get it; and I have to say first impressions are great. I will probably do a full review on it in the near future so keep an eye out for that! 
I then got the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette and the absolutely stunning ZOEVA Rose Golden Brush Set from Andy (i'm a lucky girl aren't I!). I've been pining after both items for so long, but just couldn't justify paying out so much money for them (I now know its definitely justifiable!). 
That was pretty much it for beauty related items, but my other gifts included an amazing Razer Deathadder Chroma PC mouse, and some money (to go out and purchase more makeup, yay!)

Thanks for reading!
