Daniella's Stash #2 - Huge Haul & First Impressions

Good afternoon lovelies! Today I will be sharing with you another instalment of Daniella's Stash. I do have an addiction to buying make-up, but hey, we are all addicts here... Right?!
The Balm Mary Lou
First up is The Balm's Mary Lou Manizer. This has been on my wishlist for ages and I finally got around to picking it up. I love a strong highlight and The Balm's Mary Lou does exactly that.
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
What would a haul be without picking up another Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer? At £4.19 it is the cheapest and best concealer on the market. You can read my full review here.
Estee Lauder Double Wear
I picked this up when House of Fraser were having a £10 off deal. I can't remember what exactly the deal was but I got £10 discount off Double Wear. This is my holy grail foundation and I love it so much! P.S I did send it with a little note for a humorous touch... You can read my full review here.
FaceB4 Anti-Bacterial Face Wash and Serum*
 I was sent the FaceB4 Anti-Bacterial Face Wash* and Serum* to test out and review. I'm still working on testing it out but I have tried the serum before and really liked it. Expect a full blog post soon!
Garnier Softening Toner
This is a product I have tried before and I really liked it. Although it is quite high in denatured alcohol I don't find it to be stripping to my skin. I like that it soothes and softens and it smells lovely!
Garnier Ultimate Blends Shampoo & Conditioner
I picked the Garnier Ultimate Blends Shampoo & Conditioner up from Wilko recently as I needed a more nourishing formula as I find the John Frieda Go Blonder range can dry out my hair a little. So far I really like both, they are nourishing and they smell super nice.
Good Things Purifying Cleanser
I haven't tried anything form the Good Things range before but after browsing in Boots I thought I would give it a try. There are no nasty ingredients in the Good Things range and it doesn't upset my skin. I've been using this for my second cleanse to rebalance by skin and help calm breakouts. It smells like mango and blueberry, as the name suggests (mmmm)!
Rimmel Good to Glow Liquid Highighter
I'm so happy to see a highlight offering from the drugstore as I find them to be quite rare! Rimmel's new Good to Glow highlight is a liquid illuminator that, I like to pop it on the top of my cheekbones and it gives a nice, radiant glow that isn't too glittery.
HD Brows Lip Gloss*
I'm not a huge lip gloss wearer as I hate sticky formulas and hair in my mouth (it is very windy in Sunderland) but this HD Brows Lip Gloss* has me totally converted! Full review coming soon.
L'Oreal La Palette Nude, Beige
I was really excited to purchase the L'Oreal La Palette Nude, Beige because of all the rave amongst the blogosphere. I've used a few times and I'm not blown away... The pigment of the colours isn't amazing and they aren't easy to blend. I'm going to play with it a bit more but so far, I'm not impressed. What are your thoughts if you have tried it?
Maybelline Brow Drama
I've been upping my brow game recently and trying different products. Maybelline Brow Drama is a strange product that has a really weird wand. I like the idea of it but I find my Rimmel Brow This Way to be much easier.
Maybelline The Falsies
Maybelline The Falsies is one of my holy grail mascaras. I love that it gives volume and length and the waterproof version doesn't budge. I'm obsessed with the Lash Sensational Mascara but I wish Maybelline would bring out a waterproof version because my eyes are super watery.
Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Seductive Pink
This is my third shade out of the Creme Puff Blush collection. I am obsessed! The finish of the blush is beautiful and it gives the cheeks such a luminous flush look.
Quick Fix Facial Masks
Another new addition to my skincare routine are these face masks from Quick Fix Facials. I've never heard of the brand before but I loved the packaging and the claims, plus they were on offer in Boots! The red mask is for moisture and the green for blemishes. I really do like them so far and they are a great "quick fix" as the name suggests.
Rimmel Lasting Finish Powder
I picked this up hoping it would be a beloved dupe for my MAC Studio Fix Powder review here and it is! Apart from the smell of the Rimmel offering the formula is a complete dupe. I do reach for my MAC one more as the smell of the Rimmel powder does put me off a bit.
Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer
This is a repurchase as my last one had broken and wasn't easy to use. I do like the Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer, I have super dark circles underneath my eyes (looks like I have been punched or something, damn pale skin!) and it corrects them. The formula is nice and creamy so it doesn't crease or dry out the skin.
Soap & Glory Scrub Your Nose In It AHA Facial Scrub
I've never head anyone talk about this product but the formula intrigued me. I've been wanting to try a chemical exfoliator for a while but they are all quite pricey. I saw the Soap & Glory Scrub Your Nose In It at Boots and I was enticed by the fact it was a grainy scrub with AHA's packed in. You scrub the product on your face and leave it there for two minutes and it gets rid of dead skin and leaves your skin soft and smooth. I'm probably not making much sense but it is such a good idea for a product and it actually works without damaging the skin.
The Body Shop Tea Tree Cool & Creamy Wash, Pore Minimiser & Tea Tree Oil
I haven't tried anything from The Body Shop before but I know that their Cool & Creamy range is raved amongst beauty bloggers. I suffer from breakouts so I thought I would give it a whirl. So far I am enjoying everything, especially the Cool & Creamy Wash. It makes my skin feel amazing and refreshed whilst clearing my breakouts.
Urban Decay Primer Potion Original
I had the travel size of the Primer Potion and I adore it, once that one ran out I picked up the full-size version. I have oily lids so I need something to glue my eyeshadow down. Primer Potion does exactly that, love it!
Zoeva 221
Zoeva 227

Zoeva brushes are some of the most beautiful brushes I have seen (the rose gold set though, yet to be mine) so I picked two of their eye brushes up. The brushes are super soft and great for blending out eyeshadow. The 221 is a more domed blending brush and the 227 is a supposed dupe of MAC's 217. I love the 221 more than the 227 as it is great for blending shadow out into the crease. I definitely need more!
So that was quite a big haul! I hope you enjoyed this post, don't forget to comment below with what you have picked up recently, I would love to know. Have a lovely day!
