My Big Fat Greek Haul!

Okay, first up, I am so sorry for the continued absence from my blog. I've just got myself back to uni to find the internet is playing up (sigh!) At the moment, it seems to be okay (fingers and toes crossed please!) so here I am, blogging again, yaaaaay! Today, I wanted to give all my readers a sneak peak into what I treated myself, and what was treated to me from my recent holiday to Greece. Before going, I knew that both Korres and Apivita would be brands that I could get my hands pretty easily over there so I made sure I took some pennies with me, plus you never know, Bioderma could have made its way to the Greek shelves! 


First up is a couple of items that I was treated to by my parents in Duty Free, and we all know that that is where the holiday starts ;) First up is a MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Plum Foolery which is absolutely gorgeous, and secondly is a eye shadow that I've been lusting after since July, Gilt By Association. I am in love with both of these products! 


Ahhh, Korres! Now, in Greece I went into around 4 different pharmacies, and only 2 had these stocked. I have Wild Rose, Jasmine and Quince and my favourite has to definitely be Quince!


Because I loved the lip butters so much, I wanted to dabble into the brand a little further so I went with a couple of eye shadows. I got 2 neutral shades, one a little brighter than the other, 31 - Bronze Brown and 27S - Golden Bronze.


Now onto Apivita, a brand that a saw around the blogging world a lot and definitely wanted to give a go. Now, I love anything rose related so I jumped at the chance to give this lip balm a go. I love the simplicity of the packaging and it's a brilliant product, a perfect handbag lip balm!


Face masks! Oh I do love a face mask and I had to get my hands on the honey one which a lot of bloggers LOVED. I also chose the aloe as well seeing as I was in the sun a lot!

I rather enjoy what I got over on my holiday and I promise to give you all full reviews of each of the products.

Which of these products do you want to see reviewed first?
