Random Buys

Okay, so I've not been buying much while I've been absent from blogger but I did get some things I'm liking. I was in Tescos and was checking out the makeup stall and I saw this

Barbara Daly, 'Icon' and its a really lovely plum colour but I don't thing the pigmentation is as good as some other lipsticks, but then I don't think it is as drying as other lipsticks so it is toss up for me. I want to try some other makeup from BD.

A while ago my press powder ran out so I got Rimmel Londons Stay Matte in 002 'Pink Blossom'. It says it controls shine for up to 5 hours and it soooo does, I love it, it gives a really nice finish and evens out any redness or dullness. LOVE.

Got this because everyone seemed to love it but I'm not that into it, I have to pair it with my Max Volume Flash Mascara to make it good. It gives length but then I just look like I have overgrown lashes that are spindly until I give them thickness with the Rimmel London Mascara.

Then I got a free sample of Max Factors Second Skin Foundation but I've not tried it out yet. :)


  1. Great items!

  2. Rimmel looks terrific, will try it out! Just stumbled across your blog and am loving it so far. :)

  3. The lipstick is a fantastic colour. I'm not much of a lipstick connoisseur but when I get them I rarely buy cheaper ones, like you I'm always finding the pigmentation isn't up to scratch.

    On the other hand I've always found the entire Rimmel range to be fantastic. And Max Factor is probably one of the best of the budget ranges, though I found their second skin foundation had no shades anywhere near light enough for my skin :(

    Great lash is probably the best mascara for pigmentation (really black) but definitely not for volume. :)
