Haul/Update: Beauty Crazed

Hi guys,
I went a little crazy after Christmas and bought a bunch of things online. I haven't received all of it yet, but I decided to get a haul up, so that I could start to put some of this stuff away. I haven't included absolutely everything, because I want to leave possibilities there for other posts including those items. I'm going to try not to rant and rave too much, because I don't know what I might choose to review and I don't want to get too repetitive. I have also included a few other interesting things that I've been into.

^As you can see I have chosen the picture of these two books by Lauren Rennells as the "post picture". If you follow me on Facebook you will know that I am a little obsessed with these already. I will be posting up reviews at some point. 

 ^This is what my nails look like at the moment. Random colour choice I know...

 ^Here are my new nail products. I have bought three of Revlon's 'Chromo Chameleon' colours, 2 X Ulra3, a Face Australia colour, A Revlon glitter polish (with hearts in it), a glitter polish my mum bought me, Butter Matte Top Coat, Cutex top coat, Essence products (Base, nail art quick dry drops, cuticle oil and nail art corrector pen) and three nail art pens (in black, white and baby pink).

 ^I bought a tonne of make-up brushes from different brands

 ^I bought a Lipcote lipstick seal, Revlon lipstick, Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain, FOA Gel Eyeliner.

^From Crush Cosmetics I bought NYX blotting paper, NYX finishing sprays (one in dewy, one in matte), Matte Bronzer in light, Sally Hansen Miracle Care gloss and NYX Wonder Pencil in medium.

^I bought some Sleek eye shadow palettes, a brow Kit, a matte lip colour, a gloss, three multi-purpose pencils and a concealer.

 The supermarket had a deal on Batiste dry shampoo. There were two packs and I bought both of them. The cherry eye mask and shower cap were included in the packs I bought.

^I bought a bunch of Sukin products (shown in picture: face moisturiser, cleanser and mist toner), oil-free make-up remover, simple make-up remover, witch hazel blemish stick and BE mud mask. I have no idea how good any of this is yet, because I have not used all of the products and I have only been using some of them for a couple of days. 

I also bought Sukin shampoo and conditioner and some new body moisturisers from other brands.

-Once I got over Katherine Heigl's Jersey accent I really enjoyed this.
