This is just gonna be a quick post, its the ever famous 'Whats in my purses?' tag. I'v already done the 'Whats in my makeup bag?' tag so it was about time I did this one too.
My beauty, its a grey leather bucket bag from Topshop, that I got for christmas:).
So this is what I cram into my bag,
- A purse
- Notebook and pen
- Hair bobbles and bobby pins
- A small makeup bag that I throw in instead of my big makeup bag, it has a compact, lip balm and two lipsticks
- A bangle, I don't know why thats in there!
- Hand gel
- And gloves, I love the combination of gloves and sunglasses:)
And thats all folks!

This is what I was most exited about its the Lush Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes box it contains Big Shampoo (45g), 1 Vitamin C toner tab, Fresh Face mask ( I got BB Seaweed), Moisturiser sample ( I have imperials), Mini Sugar Scrub, Mini Each Peach massage bar, Lemony Flutter sample, Pied de Pepper sample, Handy Gururu sample and not forgetting the all important free Moustache :). I got all this for £12.50 + I used a 10% voucher from a gift box so it only cost me a grand total of £11.25, Bargin!
I popped into Sallys to pick up some bobby pins and while I was in there I thought I would pick up some Ion Appliance Cleansing Wipes.
When ever im in W H Smith I always read, but never buy Nylon mag, well today was different I bought it! As well as Vogue. Although its expensive (£4.25 ouch!) I love looking at the outfits created and gaining inspiration.
Finally I always love to take advantage of those Bargin DVD Bins and I got 'The Holiday' for only £3.99, this is definatly one of my top movies, I LOVE IT!
So thats all I bought today, thanks for reading :).
So one of my favourite eyeshadows from MAC is Style Snob, the finish is a starflash shadow this is amazing finish its smooth and almost like butter, unfortunatly its a limited edition it makes me cry everytime i use it, not really but you get the idea:).
Its a pink/ brown taupe with a subtle shimmer, it looks great with a brown like mulch or Buckwheat (from naked honey collection) in the crease. Anyway this is what it looks like,
So this morning as routing around my eyeshadows I saw this,
Swatches: Style Snob, Get loose-Planet, Get loose-Planet with Mulch over the top.
Its not an exact dupe but I would say its pretty good.
Do you have any good dupes?

Mac Nail polish in Cool Reserve ( sorry but its an LE)
Other than Black this is my go to colour, it is so versatile. Another plus is that I got so many compliments about, I didn't think people noticed that much. Its a gorgeous dirty pale lavender and is a cream finish.
Next is a colour I usually wear in the summer,
Revlon 093 Tropical Temptation it is a coral cream formula with no shimmer. It goes on smoothly and only needs one coat.A 'Classic' red, Rimmel I love Lasting Finish 030 Double Decker Red, is just that. It is a cream finish (just realised there all cream finish :)), I only need one coat and it lasts a long time (hence the name) even without a topcoat. Another feature is the short brush which also easy control.
This is a definate fall/winter colour its Nails inc polish in Chester sq. Its a deep red/ marron/ rust colour with a hint of pink it is such a unique colour. Unlike all the others this is a more sheer colour but its very buildable.
What are your favourite nail polishes?

As I was rummaging through my makeup bag, I found my telescopic mascara and remembered I wanted to blog about it. So iv heard so many rave reviews about this mascara, and i thought i would pick one up, but to be honest I wish i hadn't.
Don't get me wrong its an OK mascara but that's all. Its good at lengthening your lashes but with regards to thickening and separating its pretty rubbish.
With out Mascara:)
With Loreal Telescopic.
Lengthening your lashes, which is good for my stubby lashes (im lusting after LiLash:) )
A small brush so it gets close to the roots and coats the smaller lashes.
Didnt seperate lashes,
Didnt thicken lashes so might end up with spider lashes:)
Would I repurchase the product?
Simply no, because there are much better mascaras for similar price that do a better job.
This mascara retails for about £7-8.
