Recent makeup buys

Hi everyone,

I promised to share my recent makeup buys with you, so here they are :)
I didn't really need anything, except the black Bourjois eyeliner, so there is no explanation for this totally unnecessary haul. I noticed many Jemma Kidd products at very low prices online, so I ordered a couple of things. Look beauty had an offer, where you got a free Pro palette with any order over £10, so I just couldn't resist picking up a new lipstick and eyeshadows. I also placed two orders with MUA, but only one of them arrived so far. I will list everything I bought below. You will probably see reviews of some of the products on my blog in January. I will definitely mention Jemma Kidd eyeshadows and the Clarins and Look Beauty lipsticks. If you have any questions about any of the products I bought, let me know in the comments.

  21. Have you tried the semi permanent eyebrow pen yet? Is it any good? I really want something better than a standard eyebrow pencil...

    1. I did and I don't like it. It is very hard to use and dries up quickly :( I will review it soon, it isn't what I expected.

    2. Oh okay, thanks for letting me know - I was considering buying it or one similar to try. I'll have a look for something else :) x

  22. Nice haul! I need a colorful palette like that. How do you like Gemma Kid stuff? I want to try.
