I have so nearly used up the last of my MAC MSF Natural and so I was on the look out for a cheaper alternative and as I picked up the Collection 2000 Shine Away Compact Powder as I'd decided to try the Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection concealer, having heard good reviews. I really think that Collection 2000 is a brand with a few gems and although higher end base products are usually the best, I thought I'd see how these fare and will review in due course.
I said in my post on Bourjois' 10 Hour Sleep Effect foundation that I'd be picking up their Healthy Mix foundation soon and as I've been wearing fake tan recently and also catching a little actual sun, I needed a darker shade of foundation. So I've bought shade 52 of Healthy Mix to kill these two birds with one stone.
I'm sure you've read reviews of John Frieda's 3 Day Straight and the Frizz Ease Creme Serum that you leave in overnight. I'll be really interested to see how this compares to the Umberto Giannini Overnight Beauty Balm that I tried recently. And surprise, surprise, I also picked up yet another pot of Lee Stafford Hair Treatment so that I don't run out of it. I very rarely purchase back ups as I'm always onto the next thing but this is a sign I have found my HG product.
This wasn't actually great use of the 3 for 2, assuming that Orly are even included. I picked these up seperately but am still so excited to have my first Orly polish in my collection. I don't know why I was in a glitter mood but it's fair to say that I love both Models Own Juicy Jules and Orly VIP. VIP is a beautiful pale pink glitter but Juicy Jules is a stunning silver glitter with a touch of multi coloured glitter through it. I really can't wait to use this.
So there's my mini haul, picked up last week. Reviews, FOTD and NOTD posts will follow shortly!
