Mini Collection Haul

Hi everyone, we have a lovely Spring inspired beauty haul for you all today. It's only a small haul but it was a very successful one! Collection has always been one of my high street brands. I find that Collection tends to go unnoticed because it's so cheap and with other brands like Maybelline and L'Oreal to compete with it can be hard for a brand to compare. However, I've picked up these bargain buys from Collection and I have to say that they're some of the best products I've bought for a while! 

Collection Primed and Ready Correct and Conceal Palette - This small and compact palette caught my eye because how many new colour correcting palettes have been released lately?! there is so much choice! I've never really colour corrected before and I think it can be a bit overwhelming to pick up a palette with 6 shades of greens, lilacs and oranges! But I was curious and this palette only has two colour correcting shades, one setting powder and a normal skin coloured concealer. Green neutralizes redness and blemishes while the lilac corrects yellow tones. This was so cheap at only £3.99! But it really works! and having used Collection's infamous concealer - I had high hopes for the colour correcting shades and it's surpassed all my expectations. It's incredible! I urge anyone who is new to colour correcting to get this palette - it's already a staple of mine! It brightens my whole face up and stays put all day.

Collection Primed and Ready Mattifying Pore Minimiser Face Primer - This has witch hazel in it and that alone sold this primer to me. Witch Hazel helps prevent blemishes and is a skin savior in my eyes. What's not to like about that? This primer is amazing and keeps my make up on all day long. It makes my skin so smooth while blurring out imperfections. It doesn't feel greasy, makes my skin matte all day long and does exactly what it says on the bottle. A definite must-have!

Collection Primed and Ready Invisible Setting Powder - A good face powder is a stable in my makeup routine. They're just ready handy to have through out the day and during the warmer months powders keep shiny skin at bay. I got this one because it has Witch Hazel in just like the primer and it's also translucent which I really like. I only need to put this powder on after doing my base makeup and I find that I don't need to touch up through out the day - even with my oily skin! At only £3.99, I'll be getting this again.

Collection Colour Lash Clear Mascara - I don't use this as a mascara because I absolutely love to put this on my eyebrows to keep them in place. I hate it when my brows look messy! But this product has seen an end to my untamed eyebrows. I think that a clear mascara is better than an actual eyebrow gel. Have you guys noticed eyebrow gels come in the smallest tubes ever? I ain't got time for that. At just £1.99 - this is an absolute bargain! This is my new eyebrow go - to so go and check it out!

Collection 7 Day Wear Nail Polish in Touch of Pink - Guys. It's Spring. I needed a lovely light pink nail polish and I found it in this one. It's the most gorgeous baby pink colour. I did need a few coats of this polish for an opaque finish but it hasn't chipped at all - even with my guitar playing! I recommend this shade to everyone and Collection nail polishes in general are incredible!

As you can tell from reading this post that me and Rachel are massive fans of Collection makeup. Are you a fan of their products too? Let us know!
