Mini Beauty Haul

Hi Guys,

 I went shopping again... Sorry this haul is so close to my Clothes Show Haul, it was suppose to go up before that but I forgot to upload it sorry! 

Even though the title says mini, It was mini at first... This is a collective haul by the way I didn't buy it all in one go haha! 

You might of seen from past posts I have the Cath Kidston Red Polka Dot Merry Christmas Mug, as well as that one they've done this Santa one, which I wasn't going to get but I thought why not collect them every year and have a little set. 

I basically tell myself anything when shopping haha. I had to go into Lush and pick up a back up of this little guy, I love him so much he's so cute, I can see myself buying a lot of these over the next few weeks to stock up as they're limited edition. You can see my Lush post about the Christmas Collection - HERE.

Nicola from Pixiwoo mentioned the Avon Super Shock Gel Liner in Flash in a video back in the summer, so when I got my Avon catalogue through with a sale brochure in it. Which then had this in it, I had to order it! Not quite sure what I'll use it with as it really is just exactly that pearlescent pink shade...

I have been wanting the Rimmel Stay Glossy in Non Stop Glamour ever since I saw it on Tanya Burr's Kim Kardashian tutorial, I swatched it in store and have been desperate to get it, but its never been something I picked up. But now I have it and its beautiful! It's not as orange as it seems in that picture though.

Maybelline are currently 3 for 2 in boots and you also get the Limited Edition Cherry Velvet Baby Lips Lip Balm when you do the 3 for 2, so how could I say no! After seeing swatches on other blogs of the Baby Lips in Pink Punch and Cherry Me I picked them up and I've been loving Cherry Me at the moment. 

Then the rose gold aspect of the Colour Show Brocades Nail Varnish in Knitted Gold just made me want to have it, I haven't used it yet but its so sparkly and looks great for Christmas! 

I've been wanting to fill up my 15 Pan Pro Palette for ages now, but seeing as I have a Pro Card that I can only use at free standing Pro Stores and no Pro Store near me, I've refrained from buying any until I got my discount! But when Debenhams had 10% and I had £5 on my beauty card, I had to get Cranberry after being recommended it by so many bloggers!

 Then after wanting to recreate Tanya Burr's MAC Palette I swatched mulch! Why did I not get it sooner! Its probably my favourite brown shade for this time of year and has saved me from mixing three other shadows together to get the same shade! 

I love my Real Techniques Buffing Brush, but seeing as it's not sold separately and I've heard so much about the Expert Face Brush, I got one! I can see this becoming a new favourite, so don't be surprised if it shows up in a monthly favourites once I finally start using it! (It looks too nice to get dirty!)

Then one of the girls at college has the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge so yep I ended up with that too, I was going to get it when it first came out, but I don't like sponges very much. I've never tried a beauty blender and I love Real Techniques so why not start off with this one! 

(Swatches: Left to Right - Flash, Non Stop Glamour, Cherry Me, Pink Punch, Cranberry and Mulch)

I think its safe to say I have to stop shopping... Also let me know if you'd like to see any posts about maybe empties? or products I regret buying?
