Haul Pics C2000, GOSH, NYC

Here are the last of my haul pics from last week. I did indeed forget to photograph Lancome La Base Pro that I bought. It's not very interesting to look at anyway. A glass bottle (sure it would've been cheaper had that been plastic). Anyway it's £24.50 and I used my Advantage Card points, so technically it was free (yay).
Collection 2000 Hot Looks nail polishes were 2 for £2.99 in Superdrug and 2 for £3 in Boots (or that could be the other way around). These little babies were the main point of my shopping trip. Superdrug only had 2 colours left, so I got them both. Boots had loads, so I swithered between them all, then bought another 4. I wanted to compare the mint green one to Barry M, but they were out of stock of that and I had a funny feeling they were very similar. When I got them home, I was right, there isn't a huge difference. C2000 is perhaps more bluey, of course they may look different on the nail. The greys on the other hand, C2000 is much lighter (which I thought instore, hence why I bought it). Phew! They have the cutest names (30 Sherbet Lemons, 36 Ninja, 33 Button Moon, 27 Wham, 32 BMX Bandit and 35 Dynasty), currently I'm wearing BMX Bandit, which is a most unusual bluey purpley shade. I was pretty pissed when I painted my nails on Friday night then woke up on Saturday to have a shower and notice that every nail on my right hand was chipped! I didn't use top-coat but wouldn't expect it to chip overnight, in my bed! Other than that it does go on very well, I actually could've gotten away with one coat. Anyway let's sing 'we're off to Button Moon...'C2000 Glam Crystals, I think these were 'save 50p' in Boots. As I previously explained I didn't buy the new purple one as I found it very dry. 10 Pow! is the blue one with multi coloured glitter and 12 Spandex is green with green and gold glitter.This was my third and free item I think from GOSH (3 for 2). I can't tell you how many times I've tried this eyeliner instore and never bought it. Word of warning though, don't play around with it on your hand during your lunch break, it does not come off with soap and water. No, not even scrubbing. This stuff is the baddest non-mover you've ever seen (I know, I still have the swatch I took this morning!). This is a pretty shimmering, metallic green, not blue or turquoise like in the pictures. My camera did this the other day with my No7 and 17 green metallic eyeliners which I was comparing (before I'd bought this one, which will now have to be compared too!). All the pics came out blue rather than green, even in the tube. Take my word for it, it's a mermaid green, shimmering, beautiful! (swatches left to right, NYC lipstick (see below), C2000 Glam Crystals in Pow! and Spandex, GOSH Extreme Art Eye Liner in 11)

Finally the NYC lippie I forgot to photograph, Ultra Moist Lip wear in 412B Mauve Gold. I told you this was really different in the tube to swatched and it is. It's a run-of-the-mill bronzey brown, which comes out a beautiful glossy, sheer pinky brown with the cutest subtle shimmer throughout. This is a litle gem and I think it was a ridiculous £1.95 or something. (The pics of it in the tube aren't that good, but the swatch is spot-on).Sorry the pics are kinda crappy and I can't seem to stop talking!
