Payday Purchases/First Impressions

Why does payday take so long to come around? And why does it take such a short time to spend ones earnings? Eugh! 
Anyway, I wanted to post a "payday haul" and show you why my wages never last a week never mind a month. Stila are my favourite brand for eyeshadow. Ever. If you haven't tried them I would highly recommend that you do-their eyeshadows are very soft, highly pigmented and so easy to blend. I bought the trio in "Gilded" which has a bronze with gold glitter, a midtone brown with gold glitter and a dark shimmery champagne. <3 LOVE <3
Rimmel were 3 for 2 in Boots so I picked up one of their new Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Paints in Rich Russet-it's a beautiful bronzed brown liquid eyeshadow which once set doesn't budge. I also got a lipgloss from the new Stay Glossy 3D range,a gorgeous coral with subtle gold shimmer called "lights,camera,action", and the new Scandaleyes Precision micro eyeliner in black. This has the smallest nib ive ever seen so I'm hoping it might help me perfect a winged liner.
In Superdrug I wanted a strengthening nail product as my nails are so weak and thin and found the Sally Hansen Maximum Growth polish. I really hope this works. At the till I spied the much hyped Maybelline Babylips-I impulsively pick up the menthol one and so far so good-it's got a nice scent and is moisturising on the lips and leaves a glossy sheen too.
Finally I have wanted Illamasqua's pigment in "Beguile" for the longest time- I picked this up for £5 with free delivery in their online sale(it's usually over £15) and I'm so glad I did. I've never seen anything more pretty or sparkly-it makes me happy :) I've included swatches below in the order the products were photographed. Do you have any of these products? I'm so excited to use them over the next few weeks to see if they live up to my expectations.
Thanks for reading, Love Steph xxx
