Bargain Haul // First Impression

Hello darlings

Today is a bargain Tuesday post! While i was breastfeeding Isaac i was having a little nose at the Fragrance Direct website, ( i know naughtly!) i bought a few items from them last year and i was really impressed so i thought why not treat myself to a couple of things. I bought all these for £20! 'much cheapness' as my mother-in-law would say! Considering the Calvin Klein lipstick alone would be £20!
I'll start with eye products, i bought two L'Oreal powder eye shadows and one Bourjois crayon one. The two L'Oreal single shadows i've been wanting for ages, when i see these cheap websites that sell branded makeup you always expect them to have only the really bright or bold colours but no they had lots of nudes and bronzes. I got one in 'Coconut' (£1.99) which is is a brilliant pale matte base and one gorgeous copper gold in 'nude' (£1.50). The Bourjois crayon (£1.99) is a little more daring for me its purple, but i subtle purple that is very summery. I think it would be great for a softer smokey eye or just a hint of colour. 
I only bought one base item as i'm never sure with the colours, but i saw that they has Max Factors foundations (£4.51) and i'd never tried one. I was so happy when i saw they had the shade 'fair' available! An its matches me perfectly. I only tried it once yesterday. Its a sheer to medium coverage but great for the summer and for more natural looking days.  

Now lips, these were my gems! I bought both a Calvin Klein and a Elizabeth Arden lipstick! I choose the Calvin Klein (£4.99) in 'Undressed' which a creamy brownish- nude, the thing i love most is the packaging, its gorgeous, it has a matte lower half, it feels so luxurious. I've never tried anything from Elizabeth Arden, but i've heard so many good things about their skin care but n'd hear nothing good or bad about the makeup, so i saw this lipstick (£3.95) and i thought why not! i got it in the colour Cinnamon, which is a little more shimmery than i normally go for but once on the lips it doesn't show!
