A Little Effort Will Go A Long Way With A Face Like Yours: CCO Goodies.

So here's the thing, I put myself on a self induced shopping ban on Wednesday...It was going so well, until my Mum rang me up on Sunday morning and asked If I would like to go SHOPPING!!

How could I possibly go shopping and not buy a single thing? How could a forsake the pull of a CCO!

(l-r Dame Edna Highlighting Powder in Spectacular, Et tu Bouquet? E/S, Circa Plum Pigment, Twinks E/S, Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer, MAC Barbie Make Up Bag)

An eclectic mix of various past collections, Dame Edna, Barbie & A Rose Romance.

I've been after a teeny weeny make up case for my handbag for ages, I only really carry around lip products in the day so this is the perfect size, I picked it up for £5.00 so I'm happy!

(l-r Twinks, Bobbi Brown CC, Et Tu Bouquet?)

Twinks: It's a gorgeous maroon brown, blends easily and will be a lovely crease colour. 
Et Tu Bouquet?: This was a complete impulse buy, I love the name! It's a lovely nude pink but in my haste I failed to see this was a frost and the texture is a little gritty. 

Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer in Warm Ivory: I was going to purchase this concealer after I'd used up my current one, but I saw this for £11.00 at the CCO and decided to pick it up, It's so nice under the eyes and feels light even though it's amazing coverage! 

Circa Plum Pigment: I don't usually buy full pigments, but after the whole downsize fiasco I just had to pick up this stunning colour, It's a beautiful mushroom plum colour, perfect for a smoked up eye!!

Dame Edna Highlight Powder in Spectacular!

I LOVE this packaging, It may be the reason why I bought it!

It has a really shimmery surface but underneath its a matte highlight powder, I'm not sure how much I want to use it though, it's just too pretty!!!
It came with a cute quote card that says "A little effort will go a long way with a face like yours"

So that's it guys, I hope you've had a good weekend, If you'd like to see swatches of these lets me know!!

Lots of Love, Laura xxx
