Illamasqua sale Haul

Illamasqua's sale has some awesome bargains and i couldn't say no to having a look at their Cardiff Debenhams counter.
After browsing for ages and chatting to the always lovely counter staff, i came away with 4 items, including a free item (yaaay for friendly staff!). I had to be careful as i could have bought so much more.

Picture - Eyeshadow in Succumb, Fine pencil in Eerie, Lipstick in Poison and Pigment in Breathe -the freebie!

MUA lipstick shade 10 review (also clear mascara)

As id liked some of the MUA eyeshadow singles i thought id give the lipsticks a try and spotted this shade as being a nice alternative to a strong red.
Shade 10 - a soft red/coral with gold and pink shimmer. It is a nicely pigmented colour and very glossy. It needs a few coats for a full colour, but once applied, is a lovely shimmery shade on the lips and gives a nice alternative to full on red. It fades slowly and leaves a nice pinky red stain. Its moisturising and a bargain for £1!

I like to wear this with strong neutral eye-makeup as a true red would be too much for everyday wear.

New Year's Eve look

I didnt go out on New Years as i didnt have the energy to do so, but me and my partner did visit friends, so this was the look i did for that. I originally did a look with Sleek's Sparkle palette, but wasnt happy with it, so went to my newly pressed mineral neutral shades palette i'd made from my Fyrinnae powders and various mineral eye shadow samples
