Yay, my last 2 nail polish packages have arrived! And, yeah, I couldn’t handle myself and bought two more of the new Essence polishes. Shame on me… 😉

Here are the pictures:

Essence Color & Go “Boho Chic” >>> peach with gold shimmer and flakies

Essence Color & Go “Ballerina’s Charm” >>> pastel lilac with subtle silver shimmer

1,55 € each in drugstores

Barry M Chameleon Color Changing polishes in “Chameleon Pink” & “Chameleon Blue”

3,99 GBP each on ebay.co.uk

China Glaze “Pool Party” >>> creme neon pink

China Glaze “Flirty Tankini” >>> shimmer pinky-orange neon

3,99 $ each from ebay.com

OPI “Coney Island Cotton Candy” >>> milky pastel peach >>> 5,99 $

China Glaze “Elephant Walk” >>> greenish-grey shimmer >>> 3,99 $

from ebay.com

Orly “Dayglow” >>> white with blue sheen >>> 5,95 $

Orly “Beach Cruiser” >>> cool toned neon pink

Orly “Glowstick” >>> pure neon yellow

both 6,95 $, all from ebay.com

I tried to make a picture of the blue sheen from the Orly “Dayglow” but I had to darken it a lot so you can see:

There you go! 🙂

By the way, pictures doesn’t do the neon ones justice. They look so much brighter in real life than on photos or in videos. I saw so many swatches of these but was actually pretty much shocked when I hold them in my hands after unpacking. 🙂

So much for this Haul…

Hope you enjoyed…

I guess I should re-name the blog “The Haul-Pages”… *lol

So here’s another drugstore Haul. All things were purchases over the last couple weeks. Enjoy… 🙂

There we have alllllll the goodies. 🙂 Sorry bout the tacky picture, my camera starts doing weird things with the lighting when I take close-ups lately.

Found the Essence “Snow White” LE. I got those three beauties:

Special Effect Topper “Prince Charming” >>> 1,95 €

Mini polish “Bashful” and “Dopey” >>> 1,55 € each

Essie “Ballett Slippers” >>> 7,95 €

On Sale Essence Color & Go polishes in “Sparkling Water Lilly” and Nude Glam polish in “Iced Strawberry Latte” >>> 0,95 € each (the “Sparkling Water Lilly looks much prettier in person. It is a white pearl color with blue-ish shimmer to it.)

Essence Miami Roller Girl Blush in “Dates on Skates” >>> 2,75 €

Something to say on the blush. The product itself is very beautiful and very good pigmented. But the packaging is clearly the most tackiest and cheapest I have ever seen.

I also bought the L’Oreal Nude Magic BB Cream for very light skin. It was on sale for 8,95 €.

Hope you liked that Haul. I have some more coming up, maybe if I have time to write at the weekend. I’m also waiting for three packages of nail polish I ordered on ebay, so there will be a huge Nail Mail post as well…

Ever since I saw swatches of MUA Eyeshadow popping up on several blogs, I was dying to try them out. Finally I decided to buy one of their palettes on ebay.

I choose the Immaculate Collection, which is a 24 shadow palette, cause that one offered the most oppertunities in trying out colors for me.

Here’s what the baby looks like:

I swatched some of the colors on my finger and the pigmentation is really great. The only colors I wasn’t too impressed with are the matte brown and the matte purple. Those two are so hard pressed, that you barely get some color payoff. Some of the more glittery colors are a bit “crumbly” but overall I really like the palette.

Here are the color close-ups:

Pretty aren’t they? I would have done swatches, but my camera wouldn’t really pick them up that well.

I bought this palette on ebay.co.uk for 11,99 GBP, you can find it and all the other ones by typing in “MUA palette” in the search field.

As promised, here is my nail polish haul! These are polishes I purchased over the last couple of weeks.

P2 What’s up? Beach Babe “Good Lovin'” >>> 1,95 €

P2 What’s up? Beach Babe “Adventurous” >>> 1,95 €

Essence Reday for Boarding Peel Off Base Coat >>> 1,75 €

Essence Color & Go “Blue Addicted” >>> 1,25 €

The Peel Off Base Coat I just bought to try out. Maybe if it works, it would be a good solution for Glitter polishes, since they are a pain to remove. And as a note, the Essence Color & Go polishes are all on sale for 0,95 € now, since they all going to be discontinued by august. Essence is going to change the bottle shape and size and some of the colors, as well as the price. I obviously got mine before the sale.

Essie “Watermelon”

Essie “Sole Mate”

Essie “Bikini so Teeny”

Essie “All tied Up”

each 7,95 €

Zoya “Lotus”

Zoya “Wednesday”

each 10,40 €

OPI “Into the Night”

OPI “Just spotted the Lizard”

each 5,99 $

OPI “Tease-y does it” >>> 8,- €

The “Tease-y does it” I got from a local Douglas store, which is a beauty departement store chain comparable to Sephora over here. Normally their OPI polishes are 16 €, which I think is ridiculous,  but I wanted that color so bad and so I decided to spend that money anyways. So I was pretty surprised, that at the checkout it was mraked down to 8 €, which is a discount of 50 %! Yay! 🙂

Hope you liked my little Haul. I already ordered some more polishes online, so I will have another Haul up in the next weeks. 🙂

Here I am back with none other then… the Haul! 🙂

I was litterly more shopping then writing, so I’ show you what I got recently…

Essence Eau de Toilette “Like a Trip to New York” >>> 2,99 €

Paris Hilton Passport Eau de Toilette “South Beach” >>> 4,90 €

Body Shop Raspberry Ripple Shower Gel >>> 3,- €

Body Shop Lily Cole Pearl Radiance Primer >>> 10,- €

NYX “Bohemian Rhapsody” 10 Color Eyeshadow Palette >>> 9,95 €

Manhattan Intense Effect Eyeshadow ” Rich Aubergine” & “Aqua Turquoise” >>> each 3,95 €

Essence Fix & Matte translucent loose powder >>> 3,99 €

The perfumes are pretty cute. I have one of the Paris Hilton Passport ones in a bigger size already. The Essence one is also available in 50ml size, but I decided for the smaller ones, cause I think they will be perfect for the purse.

Here are the eyeshadows up close:

Manhattan “Aqua Turquoise” & “Rich Aubergine”

NYX “Bohemian Rhapsody” Palette

A side note: When NYX products finally arrived in German stores some time ago, the prices were ridiculous high for a drugstore product. The price for this palette would have been 46,- € (!!!!!), a lipgloss would have been 15,- € and a nail polish 14,- €! Those prices would have been comparable to MAC. After a lot of people complained about the prices they ended up changing them into more affordable ones. So 9,95 € for this palette is a good deal I think.

Since I have some days off, I’ll post another Haul tomorrow. And guess what it is??? … All right, you got me. It’s NAIL POLISH!!! 🙂
