GOSH on 3 for 2..x

So GOSH is on 3 for 2 at Superdrug and i decided to get some stuff i'd been wanting for a while.
I also noticed that Barry M nail paints are 2 for £4.99 if anyone's interested.

The first thing i got is the Giant Sun Powder in shade 001. Has anyone ever seen this before?
I can say that this is the first time i've seen it and all i can say is that it lives up to it's name!
It really is huge and such good value for money at around £12.50. I'll be using it as a highlight and bronzer cos i'm pale but it gives the nicest gold sheen to the skin.

The second thing is the GOSH Velvet Touch Primer in clear. I have heard good things about this and decided to try it. It is on the exspensive side as the MAC prep and prime is a little larger and only about £2 more expensive so if i don't like this i will deffinatly be going back to MAC (excuse the pun)

The final thing i got, which was the cheapest and so free thing is the duo fibre brush which is similar to the MAC 187. It's very soft but the quality isn't even up to that of my 187SE so i will be buying a full size 187 when i manage to get to a CCO.

Let me know if any of you take advantage of the offer and what you got xxx

Combined Mini-Haul..x

So i decided instead of posting lodes of tiny hauls i may aswell post a bigger collective haul.

First, from the Rose Romance collection i just got a beauty powder in Blush Of Youth. It's not that pigmented but nice for lazy days for a light flush. I also got a full size 190 brush as my 190SE from the 2007 holiday set was falling appart. It was pretty expensive but i've been told that they're a good investment so i'm making a commitment to have an anual brush washing session every sunday and that should keep it in good shape.

I also heard from the lovely rainbowdust33 (thanks so much) that Batiste dry shampoo is on offer at Asda for £1 so my mum got me the original and blush. I'm trying it out tonight so i'll let you know how i got on. Do any of you have an tips on using it on dark hair? Comment please if you do.

I went into Superdrug the other day and got a backup of my moisturiser while i had the money. I've been using this system for a while now and my skin is in really good condition.
I also got a brown eye pencil from GOSH in Truly Brown and it's okay, i'd recommend spending a little more for a MAC Eye Kohl but that's because i like my eyeliner smudged.
Lastly i thought i'd try the new Lash Stiletto from Maybelline in brown and it's deffinatly lengthening but makes your lashes clump way too easily. It's okay for now but i won't be buying it again. What do you guys think about it?

Another Tag//x

This was an open tag from Magpie Sparkles and lipgloss86

What made you choose your blog/twitter/YouTube username?
It's simple, my name's Kerry and i love MAC makeup :)

What's your actual name?
Kerry Rose

Do you have any nicknames?
Omg lodes! Erm...Kez,Kelp,Mary just to name a few.

Apart from the obvious make up / beauty hobby, what other hobbies do you have?
I love love love music and fashion but i also have a huge interest in parts of history (Egyptians and Tudors) and i was devastated when VirginTV removed the history channel from its L package lol. My main interest though is psychology, i love everything about it.

What do you do?
I am an AS Level student about to take her exams and then move on to A2 next year. I'm studying psychology,history,philosophy and ethics and i also have to write a 6000 word dissertation.

What would you like to do?
Eventually become a forensic psychologist but that will take years so my hopes for the next few years are to pass my A-Levels and get into University as well as learn to drive and get a part time job.

Tell us something embarrassing, but that you love doing?
I like to watch the odd Disney film every now and then, just to cheer me up cos they all have happy endings lol. I also LOVE 90's pop music :)

Tell us a little something that we don't already know about you.
I'm fascinated by dreams. Whenever i have one the next day i always try and figure out what it means with the help of a dream dictionary.

What achievement are you most proud of?
Passing my GCSEs, especially my English and English Literature as i thought i had no hope in hell cos i didn't do my coursework...naughty Kerry!

What do you most like about yourself?
I have the ability to snap myself out of a sad mood and just laugh at everything.

What would you change about yourself if you could?
I would change my nose, i absolutly HATE it! I would also want to get less upset over stupid things and be more confident.

If you could have anything in the world (that doesn't cost any money), what would you want?
A good set of friends again, i thought i had them but it turned out that i didn't so i wish i could have that confidence back. This does cost money but i'd also like to pay my parent's mortgage off.
