CCO and completed MAC palette!

Living in portsmouth now gives me access to a Cosmetics Company Outlet. Thank goodness! Not having a mac store locally in Aberdeen was hard, very hard! So today i treated myself to a trip to the cco in gunwharf quays.

There was so much to choose from, but seeing as i only needed three more pans to fill in my palette, i got three eyeshadows!

One normal stock (Blackberry), One LE Blonde/Redhead/Brunette collection (100 Strokes) and one LE from the style warriors collection (Soft Focus).

Left to Right: 100 Strokes, Soft Force, Blackberry.

Each one was either £7 or £7.50 so quite reasonably priced!

100 Strokes: Love this, it sparkles in the sun and is a lovely dark purlpe/plum colour! Great for a smoking a green eye!

Soft Force: Buttery yellow frost with, cant wait to use for highlighter!

Blackberry: Have wanted this for ages, its a matte dak purple/plum. Perfect for smoking a green eye also! Cant wait to use this!

Left to Right: 100 Strokes, Blackberry, Soft Force.

And finally my completed palette!!

Top: Soft Force, Omega, Patina, Quarry, Club
Middle: Shroom, Honesty, Woodwinked, Blackberry, Scene
Bottom: Retrospeck, Wedge, Antiqued, 100 Strokes, Smut.

So there we go! Onto palette number two :)

I heart shopping!

The other day i went on a payday shopping spree! Here are some of my purchases...
(beware - this post is photo heavy!)

Two new h&m nail polishes, which i heart! Their formulation is so fab, goes on so smooth and i love them! these were around £2.99 each if i remember rightly!

Very similar to two barry m's i own...but in my eyes they are slightly different so, totally worth the price :)

A lovely lipgloss for 99p! I LOVE the smell of this, think banana nesquick milkshake! Its deeeelish!

I love love love cheek stains, theyre quick and easy and i love how they can be mulitpurpose for lips too! So after seeing BUBBLEGARMs review of bourjoirs lip stain i thought id give one a whirl! I chose the reddish one as i already have a few pinks from other brands. I love the gel formulation! It looks so natural and so pretty on the lips! (fotd pics to follow)

After also seeing a review for this i thought id try it and compare it to the other bourjoir foundation i have! Its the healthy mix foundation! Ive been using this everyday now and i MUCH prefer it to 10 hour sleep effect! Its so much better coverage, a lot thicker consistency, nicer smelling, a lot less oily, and a better colour match to my skin! So yeah, a lot better in my eyes!!

I also got a natural collection lip pencil, and the new coral lipgloss from revlon! Beautiful!

Top: H&M lipgloss
Left: Natural Collection lip pencil
Right: Revlons coral lipgloss
Bottom: Bourjoirs lip tint

Lastly i bought...love ring from accessorize! needless to say i love this!!

Aussies 3 minute miracle colour intensive conditioner! Amazing, the only thing that can calm my horrible tangles!

Oh and a piccie of my nail of the day, barry m (cant remember the name!)

All in all a good days shopping!! I hope to have many more like it! :)

What do you make of my purchases? Any recommendations for more drugstore products?
