Makeup Haul: Sleek, MAC, Black Up, NYX, & Rimmel

I thought I'd share a few of my payday splurge makeup buys with you. These products will feature in future posts so I won't go into too much detail about them.

 Sleek Face Contour Kit in Dark
I have a relatively slim face but I thought I'd give subtle contouring a go just to define my facial structure a little more.  

Black Up Paris Duo Eyeshadow in 05 and Lipstick in No.21
One of my friends has been ranting and raving about this brand, which specialises in cosmetics for ethnic skin, so I ordered a couple of things to see what all the fuss was about. 

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Mascara (Black) and Vinyl Gloss in 'Heartbeat'
I've heard so many mixed reviews about this mascara but was intrigued to try it out for myself.
I love Rimmel lip glosses, particularly the nude pinks.

MAC Eyeshadow in 'Humid' and Lip Glaze in 'Liquer'
I got these when I attended the Macquille Moi makeup workshop last weekend (I'm finalising the post so it should be up later this week).

 NYX Eyeshadow Base in 'Pearl White'
As I'm getting into wearing more eyeshadow these days, I've heard that a good base is vital to help the colour pop, keep your eyeshadow on for longer and help prevent creasing. I've used it once since I got it and can definitely notice the difference with and without. 

Have you got any of these products? If so, what's your opinion on them? If not, what makeup products have you bought recently? Please leave a comment below.

  1. I just got Mark My Eyes felt tip eyeliner marker and I LOVE it. It makes applying eyeliner so much easier and faster. It's like applying it with a Sharpie.

  2. Oooh! Thanks for sharing, Mabel. I'm still on the hunt for the perfect eyeliner. I'm really loving gel liners at the moment because they generally give you more control when applying and shaping your line but I think I'll give 'Mark My Eyes' a go to see what that's like. :)

  3. Great haul hun,love everythn can't wait to see how e mascara performs!

  4. Thanks, Sharon. Yeah, me too. I'm yet to try it out. It's still sealed up, but I'll do a review on it in the next few days.
