Over the past month I've collected quite a stash of new products. Some of it was bought duty free at the airport before my holiday (gotta love duty free!) Some was bought from various blog sales (I love a good blog sale) and the perfume was my Valentines Day present from my ever so generous boyfriend.
Since I'm still recovering from tonsillitis, I didn't want to review each product in separate posts. So humor me and ignore the lazy quality of this blog post, please!

MAC Powder Blush in Mocha
I bought this at Duty Free after finding me new, brighter hair was clashing with some of my blushes (sad but true). The lovely lady at the MAC counter matched me and my hair to this lovely shade. The quality is long lasting and it feels soft and light on the skin. Oh so worth it!
50ml Lola EDP by Marc Jacobs
This was my Valentines present from Jimbo and I couldn't be happier with it. Its much more floral than my usual perfume tastes but its so fresh and yummy I'm definitely enjoying the change. I also love the packaging. Flower lid? Too. Cool.
OPI Nail Lacquer in 'Big Hair... Big Nails'
A very coral red colour. So different to all of my other polishes and I just can't stop looking at it when its on my nails. Being OPI it is, of course, fast drying and chip resistant. Lovely. See my post here for how to avoid fake OPI on eBay.
Bulgarian Rose Facial Mask
I really wanted to try some Bulgarian cosmetics, so when I found this facial mask (with English instructions under a lot of Bulgarian, thank goodness) I just had to try it. Its very soothing and smells great. I just wish I could tell you what the brand was *stares cluelessly at Bulgarian.*
A much more natural 'flush' than the effect all my other blushes give. It'll look lovely against a tanned skin in the summer, I think. I'm also enjoying the gold flecks in the pigment. Ooh pretty!
Fashionista Blush in Blushing Coral
I'll be honest *holds up hands* this blush is a lot LESS coral than the name implies. If I were to name this blush, I would do so 'Blushing Pink.' Yes, I was silly enough to buy off the internet without first swatching in store, so technically I only have myself to blame. But still, this is NOT coral?! A good pink blush though, for anyone looking for one...
Models Own Nail Polish in Lemon Meringue
I bought this on a whim off eBay. I was feeling in a spring mood and for 99p I just couldn't say no! Its a lovely Spring/Summer colour that reminds me of homemade lemonade and popsicles. I can't wait to crack this baby out in the sun!
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfecting Concealer
Finally succumbed to the inevitable. No more needs to be said, I'm too easily influenced. I REGRET NOTHING.
MAC Lipglass in Lychee Luxe
Another duty free purchase. I'm not much of a lipgloss girl to be honest but my gut told me I need a lipglass when I saw this gorgeous coral (true coral- take note Fashionista!) shade. I'm glad I got it because we've been inseparable ever since. Literally.
Finally (and the moment you've ALL been waiting for) I'm going to announce my Giveaway winner! Believe me, tallying up all your entries (including extra entries for tweets/bloglovin/tumblr/etc) was NO easy feet! It took me well over an hour and many pieces of paper later I was finally ready to pop the numbers into random.org!
And.... the winner is: ELLA! Congratulations girl! If you'd like to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the shades of your choice, I'll get the prizes sent over to you.
