As I still haven't done any swatches (very much my bad, although I have been really busy with uni work) I thought I'd post some swatch pics. These are fairly old in that my stash has grown considerably since these were taken although in actuality they were shot less than 6 months ago. And I guess they weren't really 'stash' pics as they were just of a portion of goodies I'd recently bought. But, enough of the rambling, here are the pics!
Most of my goodies are 'drug store' brands rather than high end, with the exception of my Benefit makeup collection from when I worked there, and various mineral samples from Fyrinnae, Mad Minerals, Pure Luxe and Taylor Made Minerals. I have yet to find an NYX product that I don't like and I'm looking forward to placing my first Cherry Culture order to try out some more brands.
As many ladies in the UK will know, we have far fewer of these cheaper brand than you do in the US, and even our cheapest options (Miss Sporty, Rimmel, etc etc) aren't as cheap as the wide variety of brands you will find on the other side of the pond. All I can say is, praise be for the exchange rate and lovely online stores like Cherry Culture who don't charge a fortune and a half for shipping (My Divas Closet - take note!!)
