Here is a product that I had been coveting since it was launched this winter and that I finally succumbed to.

So, when I went through my stash I found two of the Kiko Colour Shock Long Lasting Eyeshadows from the Boulevard rock collection of 2014.

I also found a highlighter in a similar packaging. It was the Exotic Highlighter in Taupe from the Lavish Oriental collection of 2012.

I could not resist picking up one of the gorgeously embossed iluminating powders, a paint pot and a bright lipstick as if I did not already own a gazillion bright lipsticks!
