Imminent Haul! If Royal Mail Hurry Up

I’m really overexcited waiting for the post everyday at the moment – I’ve been spending altogether too much money online on pretty things, and now I have to wait for them to come!

I went to a site called All Cosmetics Wholesale ( which was blogged about by the wonderful Bliss No. 9 (links to the post) and got several amazing things for a very low price. A couple of them were actually the same as the ones she got – it was mainly accidental, but they really were good deals!

I also went on eBay and bought several eyeshadows, as I recently got a couple of Revlon palettes that were truly awful but I loved the colours and so went looking for similar ones. I’ll mention all these things as they arrive/as I have time to try them all out!

Yay, new things! Unfortunately I’m now slightly more broke than before. Never mind, retail therapy!

Sin Binning: E.L.F. Clear Mascara/Brow Gel

Ok, so for £1.50 there’s only so much I can complain about, right? But this stuff really annoyed me. I use clear mascara very occasionally, if I’m going somewhere very professional and I don’t want to look like I’m wearing any makeup, and brow gel is the only thing I ever do to my brows aside from plucking them – this seemed like a brilliant way to get both for a very cheap price!

Firstly, there wasn’t too much wrong with the mascara aspect of this product. It wasn’t great, but then again, £1.50. But the brow gel (which is obviously just the same stuff) gave me horrible spots! I don’t know if you’ve ever had spots along your eyebrows, but it is really unpleasant! Really unexpected too, I’d never suffered from a breakout there before. I left it for a while and then tried it again – bam, exactly the same, my skin hated it. That made me think that maybe I shouldn’t be putting this stuff up next to my eyes either if it’s that bad, so I chucked it in the bin.

I’ve bought some Revlon brow gel, and a Laval clear mascara (I can’t deal with the unhygienicness of multitasking one product!) so I’m hoping I won’t suffer any aggro from those. I’ve never used Laval before – it’s an English brand which I’ve only heard of vaguely – and it’s pretty cheap, so I’m hopeful that I might have discovered a new favourite!
