Here is what I got.
This is everything in the boxes, I even got some free samples, which is always appreciated!
Anyway, this haul is quite bargainous. I am running out of eye cream so I decided I wanted to try the Origins Gin Zing eye cream, and when I looked on the Boots site I saw that they had a offer that if you got the gift set, which includes the eye cream, a mini lipgloss duo and mascara, for £12.50 (half the price of the eyecreams rrp) I snapped it up straight away.
I also had to repurchase my Oilatum Natural Repair moisturiser as I had used all my last one up, and I had also made up my mind to get some Lanolips lip balm to try, I opted for the Lemonaid one as it is meant to scrub the lips as well. After adding these two things to my basket I saw that it is buy 2 get one free (the eye cream wasn't included in this) so of course I had to pick something else up! I opted for the Soap and Glory Fab Pore Hot Cloth cleanser. I opted for this because I moved today and have no skin stuff here so may as well try something new. I have also been wanting to try a hot cloth cleanser for a while now.
So I managed to get all this for £30, when the eye cream alone should have been £25, I am very impressed with my bargains and can't wait to try these out!

So I got Chanel Vitalumiere in 10 Limpide, a MAC 109 brush (my first full size MAC brush!!!) Barry M polishes in Blue Moon and Mint Green and the cutest Cath Kidston 3DS case.
I decided to go for Vitalumiere and the 109 brush after watching Tanya (Pixi2woos) videos. I was torn between the normal Vitalumiere and the aqua versian, but when I tried them on my hand I mush preferred the Vitalumiere.
Here is a close up of the polishes and foundation so you can get a better idea of the colours:
At first when I saw the foundation outside the box I panicked slightly as I thought it was way too dark, despite having tried it on in the shop and looking at it in sunlight, but I grabbed my sheer glow to compare the colours and saw that it was only slightly darker, which is good because I have been thinking my Sheer Glow is a bit light at the moment. Anyway here are the two side by side, the Chanel one is in shade 10, Limpide, and NARS Sheer Glow is in Mont Blanc.
So thats what I got on payday. I have had a amazing day, and I am very excited to be back blogging! Will let you know how I get on with the foundation.

Another reason I haven't been blogging as much is because I have been concentrating on YouTube. I have made a channel, its more to do with gaming (my other hobby) so I think that is where my main focus will be at the minute, sorry!
Anyway if you are interested:
Hope everyone is doing well, I am still reading and enjoying!

Foundation in Opal MAC Moisture Select Concealer in NW20 MAC Ripe Peach Blush Ombre (just the pink part) MAC Wedge as a contour colour Lips: MAC Stone Lipliner MAC Myth Lipstick
I had quite a lot of fun with this look and really enjoyed the results of the eyeliner, but I think even if I toned it down it would still be quite unwearable. Anyway if you haven't checked out Xsparkages latest tutorial I recommend you do!
