Hi lovelies. When I say this haul is mini, I mean mini. I'm trying to branch out of my normal everyday makeup routine and when you read so many beauty blogs it's hard not to want to try new things. The items I bought are on a budget, I didn't want to buy some expensive makeup item that I didn't really like and I used very little, therefore, I went for the cheaper make up brands so that there would be no money lost.
The first thing I picked up was the Seventeen Skin Wow 3 Way Highlighter. You can either use this little thing for as a prime, to add to your foundation to give it a luminous glow or use as a highlighter on the cheekbones. I bought this originally as a highlighter and after using this a couple of times, I didn't want to use this any other way, as a primer and adding it to my foundation leaves the skin looking very shimmery. However, I love popping a bit on to my cheekbones to leave a glowing finish.
The next item I bought was bronzer. I have never worn bronzer in my twenty one years, but seeing the Natural Collection Sun Tint Bronzing Powder sitting on the shelf for £1.99, I thought why not? This shade is called Golden Glow and even though it's a bit on the cheaper side, it's perfect for me as I get used to wearing bronzer and practice a bit of contouring. Lastly, my little gem of the three is the Collection Nude Eye Palette. I've been really impressed with this palette which cost under £3 for nine gorgeous shades. Although not as a high quality as the more expensive brands, you can accomplish all your desired looks for only a fraction of the price. I highly recommend if you're just starting to dabble with eye shadows like I am.
I also won a blog giveaway which was run by Samantha and won all these lovely goodies. There are so many new beauty items added to my collection that I'm really excited to try, especially the Maybelline Baby Skin primer.
Do you own any of these items?
