ASOS haul

Before you get excited, I ordered these things a while ago so they do not count for Make Out 2014.

Ok, now get excited.

Every single thing here is YouTube inspired fo sho. I think I was most interested in the Bourjois products since I don't have anything from the line. Bourjois and Chanel are owned by the same family and I've heard Wayne Goss comment on the similarities of the powder blushes. 

Bourjois powder blush - 54 'Frosted Rose'

Bourjois cream blush - 04 'Sweet Cherry'

looks like they would layer well right?

Both products are 2.5 grams (M.A.C mineralized blushes contain 3.2 grams). Like the Chanel blushes, the powder blush is heavily scented (fragrance is the second thing on the ingredient list). On first touch both are incredibly smooth. The plastic packaging seems strudy, the best part being the strong magnetic closure. They're just so itty bitty and cute!

Bourjois Color Edition cream to powder eyeshadow - 06 'Bleu tenebreux'

Yuh know when yuh swatch something for the first time and start making those porn noises? See picture above. I will have to get back to you on the 24 hour hold claim 'cause when I was removing the swatch with a dry tissue the base moved pretty easily but the blue shimmer remained.

Korres lip butter - 'Mango'

"A butterly lip balm that melts on the lips and offers a shiny tinted finish. The combination of shea butter and rice wax offeres deep hydration and softness. Ideal for chapped lips". See me gone digging my finger into this forgetting it wouldn't be firm like those EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balms. Smh. On first impression I have nothing bad to say about this product. The container looks small but actually contains 6 grams of product (the rms beauty lip balm I recently got contains 5.67 grams). 

I raved about the Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in my Top Ten for 2013 series and just had to get the most infamous one in 'Nude'.

005 'Nude'. I think I made the porn noises again.

Left to right: 'Nude', 'Purple' and 'Blue'

Another Rimmel London product that is widely discussed on YouTube is their Stay Matte long lasting pressed powder. I decided to try 'Peach Glow' instead of the translucent one for fear that it would look ashy on my complexion. It is swatched here heavily of course...but I dunno.

And finally, 

Rimmel London Apocalips lip lacquer - 101 'Celestial'

I will tell you how I feel about these lip lacquers shortly.

Many many thanks to my Pardnuh Karla and her generous Auntie for the hook up!

M.A.C Shiny Pretty Things Haul

In the most tardy local M.A.C Holiday release ever, Shiny Pretty Things was made available when the new store finally opened in The Colonnade Mall on December 3rd.

From YouTube chatter, it seemed like the eyeshadow singles and the Extra Dimension Skinfinish 'Snowflushed' were the hot ticket items. 'Snowflushed' is supposedly a big pan of 'Stylishly Merry'. To me, those thing were definitely mesmerizing to look at but the lip glasses were the unexpected stunners.

At this point, M.A.C items in limited edition packaging are collector's pieces. Right? Right. I was more looking at what would make great gifts.

T - B: 'Scarcely Seen', 'Rosebuddy' and 'Caketop'
Of course I had to get a bullet lipstick...

Matte Metallic 'Straight Fire'
The matte bright fuchsia 'Both Cheeks' looked gorgeous too but we all know I barely wear pink lipstick.

Just like the Nutcracker Sweet Collection they also released sets of minis. They claim these…

Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser

Usually I do these cleanser reviews when I've used the product for a while. Typically a little before half the product is gone. Well...
