Cocktail Cosmetics haul

I have to confess, since coming off my 100 day spending ban, I have gone a bit haul crazy.  It's mostly lots of little hauls, but they soon add up!  Anyway, one of the things you've said you'd like more of is haul posts, so here you go <3

EOS lip balm in strawberry sorbet

I was super chuffed when I saw Cocktail Cosmetics had the Lime Crime Velvetines back in stock, I'd been patiently waiting for ages and checking on lots of different sites to see if they were back in stock and finally they were!  I do have some pics of me wearing it on a night out too, but I'll save them for my review of it, so keep your eyes peeled for that :)  As a little teaser, I will say I went to bed in quite a state that night (don't underestimate what a state I was in, my hangover lasted 2.5 days!), and had ALL my makeup still on, including the Red Velvet lipstick, and it was still there looking near perfect in the morning.

The Sigma brush is so so so soft!  Perfect for contouring with bronzer which is what I bought it for, and the fact that I wanted to own a Sigma brush and see what all the fuss is about, well, that's now backfired a bit as I want more!  I'm not sure which I'd pick next, maybe the E40 blending brush, or E30 pencil brush... but, if I'm really honest with myself, what I really want is this beautiful wonderuss collection, the 5 Kabuki brush set, but I don't think I could bring myself to pay all that money for them!

The EOS lip balm is a no brainer, it's now #3 in my collection and has a very happy home next to my laptop on my desk.  My first one was the Honeydew/Honeysuckle one which I had in a makeup swap with a lovely lady from Canada, that one has a real sweetness to the taste.  Then I had the Lemon Drop one which is a really refreshing scent, and now the Strawberry one, yummy!

Finally, the Sigma eye pencil, I haven't used this yet, but I'm seeing it as an under eye liner to be heavily blended to give a light glow, what do you reckon?

So that's my littleish haul - no doubt there'll be another one next week after my trip to the London blogger meetup on Saturday :)
