Haul: Helena Rubenstein Goodies, how I love thee…

I made a little Helena Rubinstein haulage a while ago via eBay and fell in love. In a time when some make up brands are screaming and kicking like little kids trying to get attention, its nice to find a brand that is elegant, efficient, gorgeous…

Demi Moore is the face of HR. She looks bootiful in the promo pics.

Anyway I found this set online consisting of a duo and the Feline Intense Mascara (they have another mascara called the feather collection – sounds like it would be good for holding curl).

How cute is the packaging? I haven’t had a proper chance to try it out (mascara overload!) but I will do soon and report back.

Eyeshadow – Nothing interesting in the colour – a cream and grey. Its medium soft and medium pigmented. It shouldn’t excite me but why does it so, so much?

Cos its just soooo creamy and easy to blend. Its pigmented but not overly so – it creates an easy and super elegant eye. Elegant. Like butter, it is.

I ordered from another seller a Wanted Lip Gloss in no. 14, (redder than the image suggests) a hot summer coral:

Once again, this gloss is not too thick and the shimmer is very refined. It leaves like a thin veil of gloss on the lips but its just gorgeous, so easy to wear and a simple little beauty. It doesn’t need tons of glitter or bold, brash colouring because its a natural beauty.

Gawd, I want to be near a HR counter, bad. Or maybe I don’t if I dreams of owning an iphone shortly are to come true?!

eBay has all the goodies mentioned on this post – HR is not sold in the US or UK (no counters).

    I love the tiger pattern! usually is done in a tacky way, but this is so “sexy” woman’s makeup…I think I need this mascara!
