Clinique High Lengths Mascara

I got this mini mascara when Clinique did the mascara swap a few weeks ago. 
I chose this one purely for the 'willow' brush.

I actually really like this mascara. It doesn't get all claggy and clumpy on my lashes, and leaves a natural effect. There are a few reviews on the Clinique website that disagree with this. It really is down to application. I found that I had to be patient the first few times I applied it because I was getting used to the odd angle of the brush, but now I've got it I really like it!!
If you want big lashes for a night out, this isn't really for you but I really like it as my day to day mascara. 
It retails at £16.


Topshop Makeup

I posted a picture of my Topshop envelope on my Instagram (charcassidy) last week.

l-r: Lipstick in Powder Room (£7), Matte Finish Moisturising Lipstick in Whimsical (£8).

Powder Room is a powdery pink colour which is so easy to wear. I've wanted to try their lipstick pencils for ages! I'm really happy with my purchase.
Whimsical is described online as a 'pinky nude' but on me it looks more of an orangey nude. I'm looking forward to wearing this as I don't have much orange in my make-up collection (I only have Saffron eyeshadow by MAC).

Do you have any Topshop make-up?
What should I buy next?

Mini Haul

I stopped off at Boots today to have a look at the new Bourjois Colorissimo lip pallettes. I fully intended to buy them (I even put two in my basket!) but I don't think I'd ever use them. I'm not a fan of the packaging - it reminds me of the sticky cheap lip gloss palettes I had when I was little. I just can't get my head around them. 
So this is what I bought instead (spot my Clinique freebie):  

I should warn you, this haul is Maybelline heavy; it was 3 for 2.
Weirdly, I've haven't tried a BB Cream yet. I've wanted one for ages but been a bit unsure about them. I read a few reviews last night and decided to just go for it. It was only £7.99, so I thought why not! 
 l-r: Maybelline Forever Strong Pro in Ceramic Blue, Maybelline Forever Strong Pro in Hot Salsa and Barry M Nail Effects in Croc.
I've been reading  lot of good things about the Forever Strong Pro nail polishes, so really wanted to try them out. I bought the Hot Salsa because I have nothing like it. I bought Ceramic Blue despite everything I have is like it. :/
l-r: Maybelline Color Sensational Cream Gloss in Nude Pearl, Maybelline Color Sensational Luschious Lipgloss in Minty Sheer, Carmex, Maybelline Color Sensational Popsticks in Crystal Pink.
The first three items were just replacements/back-ups. 
Popsticks really intrigued me so I bought one to try. I'll probably go back for the orange one at some point.

Then I went into L'Occitane and picked up the Fresh Face Water. It's a toner and make-up remover, but you can use it with other products like make-up remover milks, which I have. The lady also said you can spritz in on over make-up in the day to refresh your skin. 
It says it's 'rich is Shea extract and in floral waters'. It smells so good! 
I've been a bit lazy recently, and have been skipping the toner step (tut tut) so had a gap to fill in my routine.
I'm really excited about using it!


The Art Of Bathing

The Art Of Bathing Hatbox from Lush was one of my birthday presents from my boyfriend. 
I was so excited when I opened this because I've only tried a handful of their products.
This is what the box contains. (the eagle-eyed reader may spot a few glossyboxes lol)
The Bubble Bars
clockwise from bottom left- Pop In The Bath, Ma Bar, Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds, The Comforter, Karma
 The Bath Ballistics
clockwise from bottom left- Butterball, Fizzbanger, Avobath, Sex Bomb, Big Blue, Blackberry
My Dragon's Egg Bath Ballistic was broken :(

The best part of this gift is that my bedroom smells of a lush store, which makes me v happy.

If you guys want reviews or my thoughts on any one of these products let me know.
