Rimmel’s Provacalips in No.500 Kiss Me You Fool and No.200 I’ll Call You (RRP$17.95)

 I’ve been wanting a red liquid lipstick for a while now and the 40% off sale just gave me an excuse to buy it. I seem to prefer liquid lipsticks type products over actual lipsticks. I just haven’t been liking the lipstick consistency lately, plus liquid lipsticks are just so easy and convenient. Yet again I buy another colour in the mauve-pink range, I swear about 70% of my lip products are in that range. It’s my safe lip colour.

Essie Nail Polish in Fashion Playground (RRP$16.95)

Mint Candy Apple is one of my favourite colours as well as a cult favourite. So when this polish came out, I grabbed it straight away. From memory this is apart of the Spring 2014 Collection. It has white shimmer and it is significantly more sheer than Mint Candy Apple. It needs a good 4 coats for it to get to full opacity which is a bummer. The colour itself is slightly different with Fashion Playground being on the more green toned while Mint Candy Apple is more blue toned.

Revlon Nail Polish in 410 Up The Ante  (RRP$16.95)

Highly recommended by EssieButton, I jumped the gun and bought this colour thinking that it would be a slightly darker shade than my highly coveted Scandal polish in Lavender. It wasn’t, the colour was significantly more darker and it just didn’t suit my medium skin tone as much. One the plus side, the staying power was longer than any of my other nail polishes even without a top coat. It lasted me a good 9 days and by that point I was already going a bit crazy.

Models Prefer Smudge Brush (RRP$14.99)

One of my struggles is to find brushes that work well with my small eyelid space. A normal blending brush rather than only being on my crease would be all over my eyelid. Also having a double eyelid (hooded eyelid) type doesn’t help either. So I bought this brush not for smudging but rather applying shadows onto my eye when I need it to be concentrated on a certain area i.e. outer corner of my eye.

Maybelline NY Age-Rewind Concealer in Medium (RRP$18.95)

I absolutely love this concealer and bought this as a back up. Getting this particular concealer in the medium shade has been difficult for a while so I grabbed it while I could. It is almost the perfect match for my skin colour except a tiny bit lighter, making it the ideal fuss free concealer. One that I can simple put on my face and blend in with clean fingers. Viola, quick and easy!

Everything in this haul was bought during the Paypal and free shipping promotion.

Play 101 Multi-Purpose Pencils in No.1, No.4, No.5 and No.46 (RRP USD$6)

I bought these pencils just out of pure curiosity. Being an avid fan of Pony and watching her tutorials, I found them interesting in a sense that the pencils are all over products. They can fill in your eyebrows, act as blush and a lip product as well as highlighter and of course eye shadow and eyeliner. They’re supposed to be creamy and somewhat long lasting.

Color My Brows in No. 4 Natural (RRP USD$6)

I’ve been in need of a brow tint and mascara and thought this product would be something that I could try out. My first impression would be that the colour is too light. It would be suited for those who have light brown hair. Other than that, the product itself is just average. The brush is a little too big though, I would prefer a smaller brush similiar to the Benefit’s Gimme Brow.

Facial Masks in Pomegranate, Aloe Vera, Green Tea, Mango, Rice and Hyaluronic Acid (RRP USD$0.95)

I was actually asked by my friends to buy face masks for them and this is what I got for them to try out. Face masks are great and depending on the ingredients serve different purposes such as hydrating, brightening and firming. They’re a quick and easy pamper essential that always makes my face feel so good afterwards.

All products were purchased by me. I was not contacted by etudehouse.com or Priceline to review their products.
