A Mini Beautycon Haul

Friday, 9 December 2016


Soo as you saw from Sunday's post, I went to Beautycon on Saturday and had the most incredible time. Alongside meeting a lot of YouTube creators and bloggers, there were loads of brands there too. A lot were offering freebies which was amazing, so I managed to pick a few things up.

The NYX stand was the one that impressed me the most by far. They had a big spin wheel with products on, and obviously you gave it a spin and whatever it landed on, you received. So this was something I got, yay. I've wanted to try out the NYX setting spray's for ages, so FINALLY. I've tried this out once, but its done a pretty good job!

This was FREE. Can you actually believe it?! The bold metals collection was something I'd lusted over for ages, and now finally I own something from it haha. This is great for powdering all over the face and setting makeup. The quality of this brush is incredible as well, feels so heavy and luxurious. I also got to meet Sam & Nick whilst at Beautycon which was an absolute pleasure. 

Probably my favourite lip range ever to exist. This was another prize I won on the spin wheel game. I saw the drawer full of lip creams and almost squealed haha. I picked up Abu Dhabi, which is a gorgeous neutral brown shade, something I don't have in my collection.

Ciaté Nail Polish in Raising The Barre | £9
This is the perfect winter shade in my opinion, hence why I chose it. I've never actually tried a Ciaté nail polish before but I've heard great things, and I know they're an amazing brand. Very excited to try this out!

I bought this for £12 from the official Lime Crime stand at Beautycon but on asos they seem to be selling for £15. But anyway, I was so excited to see Lime Crime there as I've wanted to try something from them for ages. I picked up one of their liquid lipsticks, obviously, and that was in Teddy Bear. A beautiful pink/mauve shade. This is HIGHLY pigmented and stays put on the lips literally all day. So impressed.

L'Oreal False Lash Superstar X Fibre | Unknown
I think this mascara is brand new, and I'm not sure its even been properly released yet? I could be totally wrong but I couldn't find it anywhere online, so I've linked the original version for now. I think the packaging is pretty snazzy on this, but I'm still unsure on the mascara itself. Its double ended, so you start with 1 and finish with 2, and it claims to give you a 'false lash' effect. I found it to clump my lashes together a bit more than I would like, and wasn't the best at lengthening them either. I'm willing to keep trying this out though!
