UK Reader Haul!

.



A good friend and reader, Neha, was kind enough to send me some surprise goodies! She is just so sweet and thoughtful and wanted me try out some of the drugstore brands they have over there in the UK. And I must say, if these are just drugstore brands, I really want to move to the UK! LOL.

Just look how pigmented this palette is!






Also here are some posts I am working on to deliver y'all to satiate your cravings!

- Review on the Acmemedia powder
- Perhaps some more Halloween looks (fairy, etc)
- Hair products/tools
- Review on the Kanebo eyebrow pen
...and more!

Oh wow makes me want to go back overseas...okay, maybe just surf the internet and see if anyone is selling it LOL That's cheaper. Hi hun, I've been reading your blog for a while, just thought I'd leave a comment today. Your blends are awesome! Keep up the good work!
And this has nothing to do with makeup, but how do you like your D40x camera? I'm thinking of getting a dSLR soon, and have read great reviews and seen wonderful samples. How long did it take you learn all the functions? Okay, anyway, keep up the great work~

Oh, I so want to see you do a faerie look!

And I'd love for you to review some hair tools. I'm trying to find a new flat iron that has an automatic shut off feature and doesn't suck. I keep leaving mine on and having to go home from work and shut it off, and I'd rather not burn the house down.

Of those colors you swatched the two purple ones are I love! I also like that yellowish color, too. They look to be heavily pigmented. Soo pretty!

Does anyone know if you can order that palette online?

Stephanie T said...

Hi ! I remember this palette, i bought it from Claire's about one year ago... for like 6 us bucks :) It's really really good, and looked a lot like MAC C-Shock collection. I'd love to see a look from you with it, Vanessa :)

Elizabeth said...

Anastasia said...

Mrs.Zeus said...

The Makeup Case said...

So I have that palette and it is very pigmented and I swear it's the exact same as mine, except well.. mine's from Claire's for 5.50 USD.

the palette looks gorgeous!

Pumps And Gloss said...

I am totally drooling over the palette and pigments! We definitely to take a trip to the UK for sure. Dangit, if my cousins had not moved to Denmark!! lol

Jo said...

oooo when I saw that palette I thought of the L.a colors palette but those look way pigmented

Anastasia said...

The palette is £2.49 or £2.99 from Superdrug in the UK. All Superdrug stores should carry the BeautyUK brand. They do the palette in 3 colour sets, as far as I know.

If you're going to Superdrug though, you should pick up the bargain 12 colour Sleek iDivine palettes as well, a snip at £4.49 each, and an amazingly pigmented little bargain, especially since the Sleek palettes are much bigger.
