Mini Makeup Haul

Hi Beauties, 
I hope you are all having a lovely weekend! I have spent mine with friends and exploring the new fresh market down at Britomart. I had the most AMAZING Nutella crepe. If you're in Auckland, I definitely recommend checking it out. 
Today I thought I'd share my most recent purchases. I have been using them all for a couple of weeks now so I can give you a little review on wear-time, etc. 

Rimmel London Sculpting Palette by Kate Moss: Don't be fooled by the beautiful packaging. I was really disappointed with this. The texture is very chalky, doesn't stay on the skin and if you're pale like me, the bronzer will look like mud. RRP $20.99 

Rimmel Super Gel Nail Polish (Gilty Pleasure): I love the super gel range from Rimmel. They have a great colour selection and the wand is wide enough that you can do you whole nail in one stroke. I usually still have to do two coats but it dries in under 10 minutes. I was able to get five days of wear before it starting chipping which is pretty great for the price. RRP $13.99. 

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer: I LOVE this concealer. They have a fantastic range of shades, it's creamy and blends really well. It lasts on the skin for around six hours without any touch ups. I keep this in my handbag during the day and find it can transform your makeup in seconds. It does crease under the eyes, but it you apply a translucent powder, it helps set it in place. RRP $18.99 

Nude By Nature Highlight Palette: I am obsessed with highlight and am always trying to find the 'perfect' one. I stumbled across Nude By Nature at a random chemist in Devonport and was instantly obsessed with the beautiful rose gold packaging. The palette features three shades; Bronze, Rose and Champagne. I layer each colour on my cheeks to create a beautiful, glowy look. They blend so well and last on the skin throughout the day. I also found the colours work just as well on deeper skin tones. Just make sure to go over with a spray of MAC Fix+ to help it set into the skin. RRP $44.95

Australis Metallix Eyeshadows: I have never loved an eyeshadow as much as I love the Australis range. I get sooooo many compliments whenever I wear them. They blend so well, stay on the eyelid ALL DAY and go with any makeup look. I wear them during the day and at night (with a deep bronze colour in the crease to smoke it out) - they are that versatile. My favourites are; Gold Gaga, Pearl Jammin and Guns and Rose petals. RRP $14.00. You can get one of every colour! A++++ 

I'd love to hear what you're loving at the moment - let me know in the comments.
