The Clothes Show Live: Makeup Haul

First off, I'm so sorry for not posting in ages! I've been really busy the past few weeks but I should hopefully be able to start posting regularly again now.

Anyway, last Saturday I went to the Clothes Show Live, the UK's largest fashion festival. Whilst there I did buy clothes (obviously) and jewellery, but in this post i'm going to show you what makeup i got.

The first stall i went to was Ciate, who were giving away nail polish sets for five pounds. I picked up the Emerald Collection. As green was this years colour, Ciate put all of the individual sets they'd created together in one pack so you could recreate all the looks from one set. It includes Ciate nail polish in 'PP060- ditch the heels', 'caviar pearls- ball gown' and a mini funnel, a pot of sequins and a tube of velvet with a mini brush. For five pounds, this set was amazing value!

I also purchased the Feathered Manicure set from Ciate, as I have been wanting to try this on my nails for ages. This set included a pack of feathers, a pair of scissors, two block nail files, the Ciate 'NT014 speed coat pro' topcoat, a Ciate mini in 'PPM091 Ivory queen', as well as an instruction booklet.The feathered manicure set was also available in other editions with different coloured feathers and nail polishes in, but I chose this one as the feathers are colourful and will be appropriate for the festive season.

I then went to Rimmel and decided to buy one of each of the two goody bags they had for sale. These were also five pounds each and came in 'Endless Glam' and 'Retro Glam'. In 'Endless Glam' you received a Salon Pro Lycra nail polish by Kate Moss in '317 Hip Hop', a Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara in Black, a 'Sun Shimmer Instant Tan in Medium Matte' and a tester for Rimmel's Wake Me Up Foundation in '200 Soft Beige'. In Retro Glam there was a Scalndaleyes Retro Glam Mascara in '001 Black', a Salon Pro Lycra nail polish in '393 Desire', another Sun Shimmer Instant tan in 'Medium Matte', and another Wake Me Up Foundation in '200 Soft Beige'. I really like the colour of the two nail polishes and I'll definitely be using the instant tan when it gets closer to the Summer next year!

My last two beauty purchases were from BarryM amd they were nail polishes in the colours '337 Pink Silver Glitter' and '341 Cappucino'. I've already tried these two colours together and they look really pretty. I applied two coats of '341 Cappucino' to my nails and then one coat of '337 Pink Silver Glitter' to the top once they were dry. The polishes really compliment each other and so I'll definitely wear them together a lot and post a review soon. 

That's all of my beauty purchases from The Clothes Show Live and I'll be posting reviews on the products after I've tried them and letting you guys know what I think of them. If any of you get the chance to go to The Clothes Show Live next year I highly recommend you take it, as it's a great experience and there's loads of amazing offers you wouldn't be able to find anywhere else! 

Thanks for reading this post and, as always, feel free to leave any comments :)

Have a nice day, Beth x
