Brushes and bronzers and lip balm - oh my!

Jack wills dress and topshop white cardigan.

The mother also went shopping today and she picked up this gorgeous lip balm for me from SPACE NK after I watched this adorable video from Aleksis

So I knew I was going shopping and I thought 'I could really do with some new brushes' as I 'barely have any' but I figured I would just have a liiiiittle rummage around my bedroom to find all the ones I did have and....

Oops! I realised I actually had quite a lot and they cover practically every make-up need.

1. GOSH eye-shadow flat brush
2. MAC 217
3. MAC 219
4. MAC 210
5. ELF blending eye shadow brush
6. ELF defining eye shadow brush
7. SHEERCOVER concealer brush
8. BENEFIT foundation brush
9. ELF kabuki brush
10. QVS bronzer brush
11. ?? powder Brush (I thought it was MAC for ages but i don't think it is??)
12. ELF bronzer brush
13. BOBBI BROWN bronzer blush
14. GOSH fan brush

So I really do think that is almost every possible brush I would ever need ? Do you guys have any of these brushes - which are your favourites? Are any of these really bad/good? I hope to extend my brush collection and upgrade it but for now I think i will refrain from buying any more. I'm quite pleased I didn't rush off and spend spend spend on brushes when I had loads hiding around my room!

I was on a bit of a photo-taking spree so I decided to empty out my nail varnish holder and snap away:

Sorry the numbers aren't that clear - Perhaps if you click it will be easier to see? I have bought loads of colours over the years this is a tiny fraction but I only recently started becoming organized enough to keep them all in one place! So it's pretty clear to me that I like to play it pretty safe with girly pinks and reds - how boring! I love my bright bright blue in there and my black - I basically always have black toe nails as it's so easy to upkeep and it goes with any thing ! Any way I have my eye on the minty baby green Barry M paint and the OPI 'mod about you' (because i'm a nerd and have seen it all over the blogging world!) Can you guys suggest any more 'out there' colours for me to try so I stop playing it so safe!

1,2,3: SALLY GIRL - 'Rave' 'Baby Doll' & 'Way Cool' (haha what an awesome name - way cool!)
4,5,6,7: BARRY M - 'Coral' - 'Black' - 'Cyan Blue' - 'Bright Pink'
8: EYEKO (colour not listed) Punk Polish
9: OPI - colour not visible (!)
10,11: NINA PRO - 'Fire' 'Fuschia Rage' (another awesome nail varnish name!)
12: 17 - 'Lasting finish six '
13: 17- 'Baked Cherry'
14: RIMMEL- 'funtime fuschia'
15: 17 - 'Miami'

I never paid any attention to how amazing some of the nail varnish names are. They are almost as fantastic as the NARS names - deep throat, orgasm, and super orgasm any-one !
