Sale Haul: SpaceNK

Saturday, January 12, 2013
I went on the Space NK website on christmas day (I'm so sociable!) and I saw this amazing set from Laura Mercier - I had to read the description of the set twice as I thought there had been a mistake! The set I bought should have been around £50 but I bought it for...(wait for it) £12.50! The set was so cheap and there was a palette, mini mascara, full size lip gloss, mini eyeshadow brush, full size primer and a full size caviar eyeshadow stick in the set - how could I not get it?
Here is the set! The box is nice and the products are even nicer. The set also came with an instruction card on how to use the product - which I threw away as I find them really patronising! So the set contains six products three of which are full size, two are minis and one is a full palette - the palette contains one blush and four eyeshadows! 
The palette! One small corner of the purple eyeshadow was smashed when I received it so there was a little bit of mess to clean up but nothing major and it didn't effect any else. I think the palette looks incredible, the blush looks gorgeous (English rose shade) and the shadows look amazing. You get a really long mirror in this palette too. And remember this came in the set (along with the five other products) for only £12.50. 
Photographs taken in natural day light
Here are the swatches for the palette - gorgeous! First is the dusty rose blush which I have tried on my skin and it is so pretty and natural - it doesn't look like a makeup blush, it looks like a natural flush on the cheeks. Secondly is one of the eyeshadow duos, it is a matte white and a slightly shimmer peachy shade both of which are great for everyday. Thirdly, another eyeshadow duo which contains a slightly shimmery olive taupe shade and a matte deep purple - great for evening makeup. 
Natural day light 
Next up is the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in the shade 'Twilight' which is a gorgeous taupe/gunmetal shade - in some lights it looks taupe, in others a dark grey and in bright light it can look quite purple. A gorgeous shade and a really nice product; it glides onto the skin so easily and it is really pigmented. This eyeshadow stick is also easy to blend, smudge and once it sets it has good staying power. I haven't tested to see whether this product is crease proof yet but I am definitely looking into buying more of these!
Next is the mini eyeshadow brush. I have been wanting to buy the MAC 227 for a while but I think this brush is quite similar (but less fluffy). I really like this brush, it is great for applying a wash of colour over the lids. Now onto the mascara; I have tried this mascara once and I am disappointed by it. The mascara is a bit clumpy, it didn't apply well and not up to the quality I was expecting. 
Primer and another look a the eyeshadow brush
Now I also received a full size foundation primer which the set - I think it is full size, it is a 30ml tube. I have heard a lot of good things about the Laura Mericer Foundation Primer but as I have my Body Shop Moisturise It Primer I don't think I will be using this for a while. I have tested this primer on my hand once though and it makes my skin really smooth. 
And last but definitely not least is one of my favourite products in the set (well I love all of them, especially the palette and caviar stick) but this is a surprise like for me. I don't usually wear lip gloss and I never buy it really but I did try this and the second I applied this product I was in love! The shade is gorgeous on the lips, it give a luscious pinky sheen which look just amazing. The gloss feels so smooth, like a lip balm on the lips and it doesn't feel heavy or sticky! I have worn this a few times already and when it runs out I will buy another!
