Recent Make Up Purchases | Beauty

I haven't really been shopping in a while for anything beauty related apart from the usual toiletries and hair products I've needed to repurchase. This little haul is a collective haul from products that I bought and totally forgot about hidden away in their Boot's bag within a couple of other bags I've yet to sort out. Oops. I also bought a couple of lipsticks to make my BeautyBay order up to £15 for free delivery as I had to repurchase the amazing Paul & Joe Moisture Lip Treatment.

So what have I bought?

Soap & Glory Archery Brow Tint & Pencil in shade 'Love is Blonde' costing £10. 
~I've been using my trusty Illamasqua Eye Brow Cake in shade Motto for a year or so and I've found this really matches my eyebrows when my roots are showing however, it seems to be really dark when my hair is freshly dyed so I wanted to find something a little lighter. I've found that 'Love is Blonde' is the perfect shade of blonde to match my eyebrows when they need to be a little bit lighter. The application is fantastic and so quick, I don't need a brush for this either as the pencil is quick enough. I haven't used the tint side of the pencil yet so not quite sure how well that would work. The only downside is that I haven't been able to master the perfect shape for my eyebrows with this yet, so I'm guessing this is where the tint side comes in. I'll have to keep perfecting this.

Two of the Nude lipsticks from the Lasting Finish collection by Kate Moss for Rimmel. Shades 45 and 48 at £5.49 each or two for £10. 
~Okay so basically I bought these lipsticks based on the colour skin colour chart to see which colours would suit me. 45 was for pale skin with cool undertones, and 48 was to suit all skin tones. And I hate them both. I actually can't stand either of them at all. Neither work with my skin tone at all and 48 (the darker shade) left me looking like a clown. I've only tried them on once when I was applying my make up for work and I always get a little stressed around that time, so maybe I should give them a go when playing around with make up looks. But if I'm being honest, I'm not so sure I'll love them then. Lets just put that down to a big mistake and try again!

Two of the Beauty Bay Collection Lipsticks. Shades Elegant Rose and Berry Fever. £2.50 and £1.25.
~As mentioned above, I bought these lipsticks just to bring my order up to £15 for free delivery. I quite like these shades, Elegant Rose is a shade I can pretty much wear all the time, and Berry Fever will really compliment my hair over the next couple of seasons. Both are easy to apply, moist and leave a really lovely sheen and balm. They don't last very well but for the price I wasn't expecting them to, but they are definitely good lipsticks for the price.
