New in my beauty bag

It's been a while and I'm sorry for that. I've been cheating on my blog with a new love.. hiking. It's taken over my every waking thought, budget and energy. But as the "beast from the east" storms in, it has meant I can get back to telling you about some of the beauty bits I've discovered recently.
NYX Cosmic Metals eye shadow palette - Boots £8.00

This cute affordable powder palette was too eye catching to walk past. All the shades have a metallic sheen through them which when applied in layers gives a rich foiled look. The powders are pigmented and one layer will give a subtle sheen to the eye lid. All the colour shades are versatile and very wearable.

Swatches of the bottom row:

Living Nature Firming Flax Serum* - £33 for 13ml
This lovely oil free serum, which you use in the morning and evening before your moisturiser, contains harakeke (a New Zealand flax plant and hero ingredient), rosehip oil and manuka honey and helps to hydrate and smooth and soften fine lines.
Formulated to maximise the healing and renewal process of our skin whilst we sleep, including increased synthesis of Hyaluronic Acid.  Produced naturally by skin and providing it with firmness and protection against moisture loss, Hyaluronic Acid production slows as we age, leaving skin thinner and more prone to damage.  The beauty of Firming Flax Serum is that it promotes the production of Hyaluronic Acid, resulting in improved cell hydration and skin repair, especially the damage caused by free radicals, moisture loss and UV rays. 
Kiko Lip me lots PH lip enhancer - £3.40
I bought this lipstick by mistake and had meant to pick up a glittery lipgloss but nevertheless I like this and had been meaning to try one of these PH lipsticks. This reacts with the PH of your lips when applied and will change to a colour personalised just for you. 
On me this comes out as a nudey pink.
The texture glides on and feels comfortable on the lips, almost like a lip balm.
Primark Nude eye creams - £2.00

I read British Beauty Blogger's review on these and grabbed these two when I was in store. The pot on the left is a matte cream in the shade Viva Las Vegas. It does go a slightly purple tone on my eyelids which isn't offensive and I know that's my eye lids but I wish it wouldn't. The texture is really nice and does smooth out the lids, so would be great used as a base/eye primer. The review I read was right in that the pot is a bit annoying because the neck is too long and so you can't easily dip your finger in but I just use a brush.
The pot on the right is a metallic cream in Enchanted. This is a very subtle cream coloured shade which when layered up has a nice daytime sparkle. And the price of these are insane. You just can't not.
