I picked up this set from the outlet so it was a bargain price especially as I also had a discount code. I haven't tried it much yet as it only just arrived but I'm quite excited. I tried the lip gloss (as that was easy since I had already done my makeup) and I have to say I quite like it. I'm REALLY not a fan of sticky lip gloss which this is, if I'm being honest but in a weird way it felt really soft when I brushed it on, not too tacky. So we shall see about that, I think it would look nice over the top of things as it's not really pigmented even though it looks very vibrant. I'm also surprisingly pleased with the eye liner that comes in this set. It's in a "plum" colour which I wasn't sure about but actually seems really wearable and smooth to apply. The blush looks really "summery" so I'm not sure how much wear I'll get out of that but maybe that will shock me too; it's looking that way so far. I'm certainly looking forward to trying out all of this over the next few weeks (if I'm not too busy with my dissertation to even think about wearing make up!) :)

I also picked up this TINY Lily Lolo (shorter than my thumb!) brush at the same time as I felt my bigger brush needed a bit of a hand on some areas of my face when I do ever wear foundation. The bristles are really soft and the description promises that none will fall out when I use it. Again, only time will tell!

PS, I'm off to The Vitality Show on Saturday, really looking forward to seeing what I find there!
