If you follow me on Instagram (instagram.com/alicemouse1) then you may have seen that Accessorize very kindly sent me a stash of goodies to congratulate me for being shortlisted in the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards. It was such a lovely gesture and I was really excited to open the package because for many years I swore by the Accessorize blushers so knew I was likely to love all the products.

Firstly, everything they sent me came housed in the most gorgeous rose gold glittered makeup bag which is literally a dream for me and I can't wait to use it more regularly. Inside the bag was a selection of their new makeup products, including some gorgeous nail polishes, a concealer and eyeshadow palette, eyeliner, mascara, primer, blusher and eyeshadow pots. They also sent me some lip products but as I'm not a huge lipstick wearer I passed them on to my very grateful friend! I haven't had a chance to test out all the products, so expect some full reviews to follow once I've had a chance - but the standout product for me so far is the Magic Eyelashes Mascara. It's designed with a unique system that twists to extend and retract the length of the brush which helps to add both volume and length to the lashes. I've never come across anything like it before and have been really impressed with it!

Best of all, all the products are really reasonably priced - with nothing costing more than £8, so it's definitely a great range for anyone on a budget! Accessorize currently have 3 for 2 on all of their cosmetics, so worth checking out their site and seeing if anything appeals!

Have you tried Accessorize makeup before?
