You could tell me its fine, I could sew you a stitch and save nine,Ayla.

I went to an amazing little get together earlier in the week, it was like I had died and gone to heaven. A big box full of Benefit goodies, urban decay, you name it. 

These are the few bits I purchased, I feel like I have behaved and didn't go too overboard. 

001. Too Faced Natural Eye Shadow Palette.
I am a natural eye kinda girl, you won't find me wearing blue or green, the craziest I'd get is a bit of glitter. Woah. So this palette is perfect for me. From nudes to neutrals to three different shades of browns. I am currently using the MUA undressed palette which I love but when I saw this Too Faced palette at the party I just had to have it. Velvet revolver is the perfect base coat, and I would probably blend in the other shades  in the corners of my eye etc. The lighter shades would look good under the lash line as thy have a great shimmer. You can definitely tell the difference of the two palettes. This goes on so smoothly and so pigmented. I would enjoy applying this everyday. 

002. Urban Decay all Nighter Setting Spray.
I have yet to try this, but I have heard and read all about it. During a night out I am generally the first one to pull out a mirror to check that my face is ok, so this is just perfect for me. Especially with the summer heating up now. I can't wait to use this! 

003. Benefit Erase Paste.
Ohmy why have I not ever used / tested this before!?!? It's actually amazing, I am not usually one for concealer but this is magic. Actual magic. It's not heavy when applied I use shade 02 and it blends so perfectly I could go out without applying foundation on top if I wanted too. I am so glad I bought this little gem.

004. L'Oreal Telescopic Clean Definition Mascara.
I am currently using the other telescopic mascara (the blue one) i don't think it's has a name? Which I absolutely love. My eyelashes don't curl so I have to use the Shu Eumura eyelash curler and usually when I apply mascara they just go straight again, it's a nightmare. But the mascara I am currently usually keeps the curl, all day! So I thought this new mascara would be great, but it's not. At all. It a nice smooth mascara but it's not for me. :( I'm sad about this. 

005. Boots No7 Concealer.
I bought this because I am running out of my collection lasting perfection concealer and althought I just bought the erase paste, I wanted a "cheaper" concealer which I could use on days where I just don't care so I can ensure I save the erase paste for as long as possible and only use it for when I need to. This number 7 concealer is creat. The brush is sold and the coverage is great. 

What have you bought recently?
