|My lil' Haul|
I then was thoroughly disappointed because the MUA counter had been stripped bare, so, I skipped along to the Fashionista one, I picked up the StarShine Highlight (as I already have SunShine and I LOVE IT!) and then got 2 lipsticks, one in a pale, creamy, orange colour "I'm an Individual" (the Maxi Moisture one) & one in a nude colour "Buff" (the Double Take one)
I quickly checked the Maybelline counter for the Orange Tattoo I still regret not picking up from N.Y. and it wasn't there-so I picked up this Pomegranate one instead. I am dyyiinng to try it out! :D
And, finally, I bought 3 NYC polishes-as I LOVE THESE, they're so cheap & last well with a good pigmentation and this new Barry M Sequin Effect polish as I can never resist a new Barry M'r ;)

After Superdrug, I popped into Poundland, as they sometimes have nice makeup in there too and to my surprise (I mean, really, really, surprised-I nearly choked!) They had MILANI PILED UP!
|The Milani Stuff I picked up from Poundland.|
Here's me wearing B. Beautiful Full Coverage 16hr wear Foundation (Available at Superdrug), the Milani Quad featured above, Fashionista StarShine Highlighter on the tops of my cheekbones, the Milani Glimmer Stripes in Pink Glimmer (far left in pic above) & the Fashionista Lippie in I'm an Individual.
I do really like the glimmer stripe by Milani, I think it's beautiful :') We all know I love Glow and this is full of glow appeal :P
I really don't feel these pictures do StarShine any justice though, in real life it looks quite bronzed and sexy-the picture below shows it a tad better.
I think this Eyeshadow Quad is not dissimilar to Paramaribo but is not as richly pigmented. It's more Gold than Green too (as shown below), making it a good alternative for those who find Paramaribo too green to suit their complexion. However, it is only a Pound and Therefore I think EVERYONE should go scout it out ;) I do, do wish it was a tad more green though! :L-Sorry!

Also, I have to say about the Rimmel Eye Primer: I am wearing it now, under this Milani Quad, while I am writing this and It's really not as bad as people are making out. I actually think that at only £5 It's really worth a tad bit more. It works well, I haven't had any creasing yet (I am not wearing a cream eyeshadow, paint pot or tattoo underneath the eyeshadow quad either) and I have very oily skin and lids. Do I feel it makes eye shadows more rich in colour and pigmentation? No, but the only one I feel that actually does (and I mean in the WORLD) is Urban Decay's Primer Potion. Overall, for a Fiver, I'd say BUY IT! You won't be disappointed!!
