I'm Not Dead...Yet (Mecca Haul)

Sorry for the break in posting lovelies, things had a little bout of furious activity round these here parts and then there was nanowrimo and even social endeavours - phew, stuff...Tiring.

Anyway I thought I'd post a small haul I got from Mecca a few days ago because they're easy posts and people seem to like to see what other people buy for some reason :P (I do too, I don't understand it but I do). Anyway, here we go.




 I ordered a few things I've had my eye on for ages


 Nars velvet matte lip pencil in Train Bleu

 



 Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in 'Ethereal Glow'


 Purdy packaging


 Reminds me of ice cream or something, I kinda wanna eat it haha. I already have the ALP in Ethereal Light and loved it. I tried this blush last night for the first time and it's so pretty and subtle, just the way I like blush to be.

 
 Samples! The perfume sample - holy shit! So nice! I'm really, really fussy about perfume and rarely wear it but something made make choose this sample....The name reminded me of Fallout New Vegas and the scent is just the kind of thing that I like. I'm not good at describing scents but it is sweet, I can tell you that much. The images it conjured were a Black Widow type character, roving the wastes of the post apocolyptic Mojave - someone who watches you through her scope as she plans what to do with the things she loots from your corpse, purposefully positioning herself up-wind from you so that the last thing you notice before you die is a sickly sweet scent upon the gentle desert breeze..Ahhh. I think the only thing holding me back from purchasing a full size is the price :-/

Moving on..


 Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Creme lipstick deluxe sample in 'Grace'


It's a pretty pinky nude colour but unfortunately I don't think it'd suit me because it has a peachiness to it and I can't wear anything peachy as it pulls very orange on my skin.




I haven't tried the other samples yet but hopefully will in the next few days...I love freebies.



Anyway that's all for now, have you done any recent purchasing? If so what? I wanna knowwwww


Over and out

  2. It's hard to tell from packaging but I think the lip pencil looks like an awesome shade!
