Things I've bought recently

I went shopping the other day. I had some Sam McCauley's vouchers and some Christmas money so I picked up some new makeup and a few other things.
Well I didn't  buy these my Mum did then she gave them to me. They're Yankee Candle tea light in Sparkling lemon. I absolutely love lemon scented stuff but vanilla is my favourite. These came in a set of 16 just didn't think you all wanted to see 16 of them! I really want to buy one of  the large Yankee Candles but I wouldn't know what to get. Anyone got any Favourites? 

I really wanted a girly pink polish. So I bought the one on the left (Flamingo) and then because I had bought this polish and the foundation below I got the other polish free. I picked a lighter shade of pink. I think I'm going to do my next post with them. 

The first two I already have I had just run out. I love Collection 2000 Big Fake Lash. Its becoming my favourite mascara! I just love the massive brush and it makes my lashes look a bit thicker and longer which I'm not complaining about. Then I got Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection concealer. I had read so many amazing reviews so I had to try it. So far I really like it. Its really creamy and you don't need much to cover up under eye circles or blemishes. 

I bought the mini baby shampoo just to clean my makeup brushes. I love the mini sized products. They are such a rip off but I'm such a sucker for anything mini or cute! haha. 

I got these for my kit. They were €9 which is really cheap for 5 pairs of lashes! I don't know if I would wear them all but I'll definitely use them in college. 

Have been looking for something like this for a while. It has to be the worse thing in the world when you spend ages painting your nails and then you have to sit there for ages until they dry or you get impatience and then smudge them! I haven't tried it yet but I hope its good. 
 Lastly I got the Benefit Finding Mr. Bright kit. I LOVE benefit kits! You get to try the mini products (cute) and then if you love one certain thing you can buy the full sized one. I had a full sized High Beam but it went missing :( so I'm delighted there is one in this. I've never tried any of the others but I've heard lots of good things about Erase Paste! I'll probably put these in my kit too because they are small they won't get up too much room and are so handy to have :) 

I got back to Dublin today. I have so much work to do for an assessment on Wednesday. I am really stressed out about it but its got to be done. I can't get used to the cold in my house after being at home for the last 2 weeks where the fire is always lighting. I have prepared for this though. I have new fluffy pjs, a fluffy dressing gown and my electric blanket. I can't wait. I better get start on all my work... :( x
