Collective Haul #2- Makeup/Beauty

Hi guys!

Hope you're all well :) Apologies for taking so long to get this haul up. 

A lot of this makeup is things I have bought over the last month, and from my trip to Liverpool in June. I'll dive straight into the more recent items I've bought. I hope this haul isn't too long for you! :) Just a little warning for you, this post will be picture heavy!

The first items I bought yesterday from Boots and they are the new Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains (quite the mouthful eh?!). These are the latest must-have from Revlon since the release of the Lip Butters. These are available in Ireland in 7 shades I believe. I picked up 4 as I have been dying to try them out after reading a tonne of blogs praising these lip stains, the packaging of these is very similar to the Clinique Chubby Sticks, but the pigmentation of the Revlon stains is much better. These are available from Boots and retail for around €11, but I picked them up for €7.08 each with Boot' latest offer. The colours I picked up were Honey, Lovesick, Rendezvous and Crush.

The next item I picked up from Ebay and it's the Uniq One all in one hair treatment. I received a mini size of this in a Glossybox. I absolutely adore this product, it leaves my hair feeling so soft and light. It's kind of a 10-in-1 product which claims to do the following:

1. Repair dry & damaged hair
2. Shine & frizz control
3. Heat protection
4. Silkiness & smoothness
5. Hair colour protection/ with UVA & UVB filters
6. Easier brushing & ironing
7. Incredible detangling
8. Long-lasting hairstyle 
9. Prevention of split ends
10. Adds body

When I first tried it I thought it would be one of those 'gimmicky' products, but this was totally the opposite! I bought this on Ebay from this seller. This was £9.95/€12 + £2.50/€3 for P&P which was very reasonable and will last ages!
The next item I picked up was a eyeliner marker in Jet online from Topshop here. I had been looking in store for ages and couldn't find it. I'm still not 100% sure if I like this product yet, as it did tend to smudge the first time I wore it, but I will give it another chance! This was £6.50/€8.

The next few items I picked up from MAC's latest collection, the Heavenly Creatures Collection, which  consists mainly of mineralize blushers, eyeshadows and of course mineralize skin finishes. I was really looking forward to this collection as I love MAC's MSF's and their mineralize blushes so this collection was right up my alley. The mineralize skinfinishes are retailing at €28.50 and the blushes at €23. Other items I picked up from the collection was a Cremesheen Lipglass in Astral (€20) and the much- hyped return of the Volcanic Ash Exfoliatior (€30). I also picked up a Cremesheen Lipglass from their Reel Sexy collection in Star Quality which is a gorgeous bright pink (€20).
