Haul: Illamasqua, Dior, Origins

I was quite excited to pick up a few products which I have wanted for a while.  It was a splurge with a reason!

I managed to pick up Dior Shimmer Powder in Amber Diamond from the lovely Laura.  It is ALWAYS out of stock here so I was really pleased to receive it.  She sent me a lovely card which was spritzed in Amor Amor (love this fragrance!).

Next I had word that Charlie didn't want her Illamasqua Ore pigment.  Used once.. I was there like a shot as I have not been able to pick this up either.  Must be two very popular products!!

I managed to pop into a Mac counter and get matched for concealer this weekend.  The MUA picked out Studio Sculpt as I find my concealers fade throughout the day.  It was a darker number than the foundation, but I think it might just be the range rather than a different colour.  We will see.  I was a bit confused about the difference in numbers!

 I also picked up a few things from Origins.  I say a few (see below!!).  Would you believe that I only bought the top two things (Night-a-mins ey cream and Brighter by nature).  The rest was gifts with purchase!
This made my pennies go a lot further!

I have been using 'Checks and Balances' Cleanser which I purchase recently (See here) and thought it would be worth picking up a few other things.  I was amazed at the offer- a great way to try lots of things without commiting!  I have a decent sized day moisturiser as well as 2 mini boxes of treats!  Thanks Origins!

So that's a(nother) haul.

I will be reviewing the products (if you want?)

Stay tuned for
