Few bargain make up buys and prize :)

I recently won 1st prize in a giveaway on the lovely Elle's blog and my prizes arrived today! I got the sleek storm palette, a barry m dazzle dust in 58 which is such a pretty pink (sorry just realised you cant see it in the photo), gosh lipstick in darling and a mac lipstick in hue!
I love hue so much already, I think its going to be my fave lipstick, its a nudeish pink, very wearable!
This is a close up of the storm palette, the colours are so gorgeous, there is a mix of neutrals, mostly with shimmer but a few matte ones too, perfect for using everyday and I cant wait to play around with those!


So thanks so much Elle!

So on to the bargains I got today whilst out in town after work....
I wasnt going to spend any money today but I couldnt resist, the plan was to avoid boots as I cant help it in there but then my mum went in to get a prescription and I remembered seeing a blog yesterday about a great free gift when you spent £5 on 17 products so I thought that wasnt too bad to spend and Id get more :) so I got the 17 skin perfecting shine free foundation in natural, this was about £5.37 and has spf 12 in it too, this seems good so far I put some on when I got home and seemed great, will use it properly tomorrow.
So on to the free gift! Its a palette called the 17 bronzed and gorgeous summer glow kit and it comes with 2 lovely neutral eye shadows, a bronzer, a lipgloss, a bronzing brush and a double ended eyeshadow applicator. I love the eyeshadows and the bronzer, they both seem really good, definatly worth £5 on its own Id say. so if you are considering buying anything from 17 make sure you take up this offer!
Here is a swatch of the foundation, Im very fair and this seems a good shade for me hopefully!

Also today my sister wanted to go to Ethel austins for some cheap baby clothes for my nieces doll, I didnt even know this shop still existed so I was suprised when I saw they sold makeup! I got 2 things for £1 each, a lip balm from a range called I love.. and its so yummy, the flavour is strawberries and milkshake and it smells sooo nice! its a big pot too! I also got a Rimmel wear maxx nail polish in 345 Pop apricot, which is pink with a hint of shimmer and coral, havent tried it yet but had to get it for £1!

Also there is a great giveaway over at blogspot beauty! check it out!

I have both the Gosh Darling and Hue and LOVE them. They're the only nude lipsticks that I have found so far which are forgiving! xx
