Mini Haul - Avon, Collection 2000 and Clinique

Hi Beauties!

So I have been spying a few things that I have liked over the past week and decided to purchase a few of them.

The first being Avon's SuperShock Gel eyeliner pencils - I actually only got these last night but I have tried them out and I am really liking the formula. I bought 2 colours to start with; Black and Aquapop.

Top Black
Bottom Aquapop

The formula is so creamy, it glides on so easily and the pigmentation is so intense - I tight lined my eyes last night just to check them out and I was so surprised at the colour payoff. I have heard some really good things about these and so wanted to try them out. I am hoping that they live up to expectation - but a part of me suspects that even though I love the formula there may be a lot of smudgyness to follow.

The next thing is something I tweeted about the other day - Collection 2000's Lasting Perfection Ultimate wear concealer. I really wanted to review this - but to be perfectly honest with you I have not been able to wear skin makeup every day so I have not had enough wear out of it to give it a good enough try.

colour 1 Fair
I do like the formula from the couple of times I have tried it. I do however wish that I had got the next colour darker as this is really highlighting, which is not a bad thing but it may be too light to evenly blend blemishes away without highlighting their existence  I have been using this when I can as an under eye concealer and it works really nicely in covering up dark circles - which you would expect from any half decent concealer. Again I have heard a lot of good things about this product so I am looking forward to seeing how well it compares.

The last product is not one that I have yet purchased but one that I have been using a sample for. It is Cliniques SuperMoisture Foundation. I really like this product and will be buying it very soon.

It is an incredibly moisturising foundation which I am having to wear due to the medication that I am on, causing my skin to be dryer than the Sahara. I actually went into Clinique and spoke to one of the lovely ladies there and explained my predicament and that I had a job interview coming up. So the wonderful woman dispensed me a nice big sample of this foundation for me to try out and use for my interview. It worked a treat! It evens out my skin tone nicely, it has a medium coverage and is (as you would expect with the name like SuperMoisture) very moisturising. However my face does look incredibly shiny as the product doesn't necessarily dry - but then again I cannot apply powder as that would dry out my face and draw attention to dry areas.

I am hoping that after I come off the medication I can go back to using my YSL foundation, but while I have skin issues I'm pretty sure this foundation is going to be as good as it gets!

Hope you like my mini Haul :)

Have you tried any of these products? What do you think of them?



  1. I love the eye liners they look lovely! The pigmentation looks great, will have to try them out :)

    1. They are really great! Think there is an offer on them at the minute! I will be trying more shades as they seem to be really working for me!
      Let me know if you try them :)

  2. The Collection 2000 concealer is amazing!! But yes defo get the next shade down, if it's too dark then mix the shades :)


    1. Yeah I'm really liking it so far! And yeah I'm definitely going to get the next shade down, but mixing them is such a good idea!!
