Huge Haul (3 months worth of buying)

Ahh so here it is, I'm finally starting to get serious about my blog and my YouTube channel. Hopefully I am going to update both at least twice a month :D After all, I buy enough stuff so I may aswell show/tell/review some of it, can't be greedy now :P
Anyway, over the past 3 months I've bought an unholy amount of make-up and nail polish (I feel I earned the clothes) that I don't need and I've decided to show you my hoarding skills :L I have no shame xD Enjoy!

From left to right: 
Checkered hoody - New Look €24.99 down to €12
Polka-dot dress - New Look €34.99 down to €19
40's Sheer yellow blouse - Vintage Fair €40 down to €30
60's cotton red pleated skirt - Vintage fair €25
40's reprint scarf - Vintage fair €5

The Vintage Fair was in Dun Laoghaire on Sunday 17th April. It was called the "Dublin" or the "Spring" Vintage Fair. They were selling clothes, shoes, jewellery, accessories, decor and some antiques. They tend to travel around the country and I think they're in Galway this weekend. They also have antiques fairs and they swap between the two. For more info check out 

In the nail polish pictures I added extra ones to show comparison shades/prices.
P.S. Neither my video camera nor normal camera are doing any of these shades justice. Go to your local chemist/drugstore/highstreet out and check for yourself :L

I used to LOVE my Maybelline Colossal mascara, but then Falsies took its place, but now oh my word, I use my million lashes to lengthen and seperate and layer it if I want a bit more, but if I want "Omg I love your lashes" I layer my Falsies on top [:
Coz I have dry skin I am prone to fine lines and wrinkles quicker than my oily or normal friends and because of this I have fine lines under my eyes. I love the look of concealer under my eyes even though I don't need to cover anything up there, but no matter what the concealer is, it settles in mah lines -_- BUT if I uses a fluffy brush (like my sigma e25) with that concealer, it = amazeballs under my eyes :D (It still settles in my lines, just not half as quick :L)

One more pic just to show you the colours [:
Left to right:
Superstay lip yoke in raspberry, lickable, sin, clash, viva glam v
I'm getting tired so I'm hoping you've read all of the above and can follow what colours are what [: I trust you :L
Next 3 lippies are apple blossom, barry m 101 *no photo* and crimson
Then big blom of concealer covering my v.dark mole (told you it was good) then the top blob is M.A.C, the middle pink blob is Maybelline and the last blob in the bottom right is Revlon.
I thought flash would help. I thought wrong :L

THANK GOD I'M FINISHED :L Speaking of god, being an atheist (or someone with a sense of humour) I came across this thanks to a friend on Facebook, so I said I'd share it with you [:
