Beauty Emporium Order
I arrived home from college today feeling quite rubbish with a massive headache and feeling thoroughly frostbitten at the lovely early hour of 7pm. Yum. Thankfully my dinner was ready and I was restored to a somewhat acceptable mood, then I was informed my package had come and I was DELIGHTED!
I bought 5 items from The Beauty Emporium all of which arrived safe and sound! I'm absolutely over the moon! Three of the items are for me, probably should have spent the money on Christmas presents but Oh well! The other two I bought for presents (I'm not all selfish.)
I bought two Urban Decay Smoke Out Kits for presents, they are really cute, smaller than I expected but for the price €12 think they are well worth it. The kit includes 4 small eyeshadows, a mini 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero, a mini eyeshadow brush and a mini mascara. I bought the kits in Sweet Lucy and Yerba. They are from a very old collection but they are lovely so I decided I'd buy them anyway!
Sorry the pics aren't my own but because they are presents I don't want to open them!
I also indulged in an eos lip balm for €5.75 which I have been hearing raves about all the time! I bought the summer fruits one and it's so cute and smells delicious! I'm not sure how effective it is yet because I just tried it about an hour ago but it feels lovely on my lips and has a nice taste, bonus. Photos are a bit rushed because I was dying to get this post up!
The NYX 'Slide on, Glide on, Stay on & definitely a turn on waterproof, extreme shine eyeliner' was my next purchase for €8.It is so pigmented and very like the UD 24/7 liner in Zero in looks and texture and you can nearly buy two NYX ones for the price of one UD which are €15. I'm not sure how it fares on the eyes but from what I can see I'm going to like it. I swatched it on my hand and just rubbed it with my fingerabout 2 minutes later, no budge at all! It does smudge directly after application though which is good if you want to smoke out your liner below your lashes or for a smokey eye. As of now I like it a lot.

My last purchase was the Sleek Ink Pot Gel Eyeliner which was €8 aswell. It's good. Really good. I took off my make-up to put it on and I'm blown away. Read about this on Viva Adonis do they ever disappoint? Here are some pics of it on me and swatched.

That is my lot! Hopefully they live up to my expectations, I'll keep you posted. :)
