Autumn nails!


20131101-170827.jpg

I love applying nail varnish in the winter time because it’s a simple way to accessorise and add colour to the deep and dark colours of the colder months!

When it comes to nail varnishes, there is no competition to Barry M nail paints which are my favourite nail varnishes of all time! They smash it with their colour ranges for every season and autumn, is not one they’ve missed! They’ve just released a collection of matte nail shades which all look amazing! So check out their website for sure!

All of their nail varnishes are opaque and often it only takes 1/2 coats to get them perfect and ready to roll out with. They’re as cheap as chips coming in at £3.99 and often even less when on offer. The brush is small so perfect for precise application and it dries in around 1 or 2 minutes!

Have a look at all of these colours that I have in my collection which I think are perfect for the autumn months!

In case you’re wondering, I have been using this varnish remover to take off my my varnishes lately and I love it!

KIKO make up haul


20130908-142538.jpg

Continuing on with my haul from the last blog post, here are the items I bought from KIKO!

The first items I picked up, were these creamy lipgloss sticks. Very similar to the chubby sticks by way of the packaging and product inside too! I feel as though these last a little longer though. They are glossy and are quite sheer too (which is my favourite combination). I chose 3 colours!

** KIKO Creamy Lipgloss in 110: £6.50

20130909-110559.jpg
** KIKO pH lip enhancer in 100: £6.50

These individual eyeshadows also caught my eye after I knocked a few over with my bag in the store! I chose colours that I could wear alone and wouldn’t have to pair up with anything else! The are super creamy and pigmented. They all have a sheen or glitter in them but its not chunky and they don’t have a tonne of fallout. These remind me of MAC eyeshadows with the same type of quality.

** KIKO eyeshadows in shades (left to right): 166, 116, 133, 148 – £2.90 each

I then saw these lipsticks and the colours caught my eye! I’ve been trying to use lip products more because I feel like changing your lips can change your whole face instantly! When I saw these colours, I knew they’d be perfect for slamming in my handbag and topping up on the go! They’re lovely pink and brown nudes (can you tell which colours I like?). Although they’re sheer, they’re glossy and have a lovely gold flex running through! They’re semi- sheer and really moisturising with a comfortable application!

** KIKO smart lipsticks in shades: 903, 917 – £1.90 each

I’m a sucker for eyeshadow palettes! More so, for KIKO eyeshadow palettes which I own a few of already! I remember seeing these on their website and loving the colours but when I actually tried them in store, I was literally left with my mouth hanging wide open! They are the creamiest and softest eyeshadows in the world! I have never felt such strongly pigmented and rich colours in any product before! They blend so well and look so vibrant it’s crazy! I am definitely going to get the other palettes!

20130908-142017.jpg

20130908-142026.jpg
** KIKO colour impact eyeshadow palette in ‘Bright Night Lights 03’ – £16.90

When I saw this nail varnish, I was intrigued about how it would look. Whilst I was checking out, I saw this sitting there for £1 and grabbed it! The colour is a beautiful pastel blue with a slight purple tinge. The ‘sugar mat’, isn’t so interesting! It’s really gritty and after having it on for only a few minutes, I knew it wasn’t practical! It’s fairly sharp and feels like super hard sandpaper. Moreover, it looks like your nail varnish has major air bubbling going on, so I’m not too crazy about this but, I’ll hold on to it for the next type I’m carving wooden sculptures!

** KIKO Sugar Mat nail lacquer in ‘635 Wisteria’ – £1

For all the products I bought, visit their website here. They have excellent shipping and have a super clearance section with their previous collections at mega low prices!

Inglot make up haul


20130908-140852.jpg

Can you believe, I’ve been shopping again? I went into London recently and saw some lovely little make up bits that I had to grab! Take a look at today’s post where I show you what I got at Inglot!

I popped into Inglot because they had a sale on, on their lip, eyebrow and concealer palettes.. 50% off! I chose their 5 piece freedom system palette and decided to choose only lipsticks as I didn’t really need any other stuff (not that I need more lipsticks, though). These ended up being so creamy and pigmented! They look amazing and feel good too! I’ve tried an actual lipstick from Inglot before and it’s one of my favourites!

20130904-095154.jpg
**Inglot AMC 5 roundfreedom palette: £3.50
Lipstick refills in shades (left to right): 29, 56, 26, 03, 62- £1.75 each

I then picked up another lip product by way of the lip paint! This is an uber glossy and moisturising lip stick kind of pot! The colour is the perfect nude for me which adds colour and doesn’t drain me out.

20130904-095649.jpg

20130909-104153.jpg** Inglot lip paint in shade 63: £10

The last few things that I got were nail varnishes! I really wanted some more of the o2m nail varnishes in nude colours that I could always wear! I chose brown and pink toned nudes and they ended up being really nice! I think I’ll enjoy them more in winter though because they don’t seem to look very good with tanned hands.. I have the pink shade (680) on right now.

20130904-095951.jpg
**Inglot. o2M nail paints in shade: 677, 680- £11.00 each

For all the products I’ve mentioned, you can visit their website here. Their p&p is a little pricey and their swatch colours online are a little off though, so I’d suggest visiting the store for a better experience!

July Miss Glossy Box!


20130722-014425.jpg

So I recently received the Miss Glossy Box for the summer months! For those of you who don’t know, Miss Glossy Box is the second subscription box service that Glossy Box have made which is targeted to a younger audience consisting of drug store and more affordable brands!

20130722-014439.jpg

VO5 Plump It Up Back Comb Spray £3.69
This is a spray designed for those of us who love a good back comb but hate the crispy and stiff feeling that hairspray gives! It smells good and lasts a long time and really does leave a more natural movement to your hair even when you have it back combed!

20130722-014652.jpg

Kiss Nail Wraps in Jewelled Stripes £5.99
I like a good nail wrap every now and again! Although I find some of the patterns very garish (which some would claim this one is too), I think this design is perfect for the target audience of the box! Nail wraps are quick to put on, require no glue and last really long too!

20130722-014706.jpg

Miss Patisserie Bath Fizzy in Starlight £2
When I first got the box, I could smell something incredible coming from the bag! I loved the idea of the bath fizzes in the box because its something I’ve never received in the original Glossy Box! They smell divine and have fun stars in them which float around in your bath!

20130722-014724.jpg

GlossyBox false lashes
These eyelashes are not able to be bought separately however, they are of fairly good quality! Perhaps a bit too full on for the looks that I like to go for, but I like the idea of them! They come with glue too!

20130722-014742.jpg

Beyonce Midnight Heat £29.50
This perfume is a really pungent scent! I wouldn’t say it’s very evening at all! Rather, a musky smell which is bordering on smelling like ‘Grandma trying to be hip’. It’s a shame because I love the original Beyonce Heat which I have a bottle of!

20130722-014825.jpg

All in all, I feel as though this months Miss Glossy Box wasn’t really marketed that well! I think the perfume, lashes and back comb spray were better suited to the original Glossy box, however, there were a lot of full sized products in the box and for the price of the subscription, we all got our money’s worth! I’m just not sure if some of the products were suited well for myself!

KIKO, Maybelline and Essie Make Up haul!


20130711-232529.jpg

I know I’m a little late with my daily blog posts but hopefully, I’ve managed to adjust my routine what with fasting and everything.. So here goes my first post!!

I recently went to Westfield and couldn’t help but stop off at one of my new favourite make up stores: KIKO! They have amazing quality products and for really good value so I couldn’t resist some of their goodies! Fortunately for me, all of the stuff I liked was on offer in their sale section!

The first thing that caught my eye was this ‘Wet and Dry eyeshadow palette in Holi Vibrations’. I bought a few other palettes from this collection which I hauled in a previous blog post and I love them! These colours are perfect for summer! They’re bright but not too bright and the shimmer will look gorgeous in summer along with those lovely pastel colours! They have fall out but nothing major so HAPPY DAYS!

20130711-232614.jpg

20130711-232825.jpg
Wet and Dry eyeshadow palette in Holi Vibrations £8.40

Having tried KIKO’s eye products only, I had a little dabble with these gorgeous blushes they have to offer! I had to get 2 because I could choose! They had a few to choose from but I chose the colours that would suit me beat! I like a subtle blush at the moment (a far cry from my previous look) and these have a beautiful finish.. The beige/gold colour on the end is shimmery so creates a lovely highlighted look!

20130711-232844.jpg

20130711-232908.jpg
Colour Explosion multi tone blush in Wild Sienna 01 £5.90

20130711-232918.jpg

20130711-232925.jpg
Colour explosion multi tone blush in Active Mauve 03 £5.90

20130711-233410.jpg

And just as I was leaving the store, these grabbed my attention! When I tested them on my hand, I knew I’d use these constantly! This lovely lips and cheeks product has a lovely texture and is really well pigmented! They haven’t over-done the pigment because its to be used on the cheek too- I suppose they want their consumers to not look like clowns! I love the texture, the smell (like vanilla!). These completely remind me of Sleek Pout Polishes but are so much better.. In my opinion!

20130711-233425.jpg

20130711-233451.jpg
Glow Touch lips and cheeks in Pleasent Pink Azalea 04 £2.90

20130711-233520.jpg

20130711-233525.jpg
Glow Touch in Icy Watermelon 02 £2.90

20130711-233758.jpg

Then I made a cheeky stop to Boots and picked up some non-essential essentials ;)

20130711-233816.jpg

20130711-233924.jpg
Maybelline the falsies blackest black mascara £7.99

Let me know what you guys think of this new style of photography!

What products have you tried from KIKO?

September non/ beauty favourites


So I recently done my beauty favourites of September and thought I’d stir the waters by doing a non beauty favourites post!!! All about the things I like or have enjoyed doing during the month is August!

Lets start with.. SURPRISES!!! So as some of you may have read, I had a lovely cousin of mine come round and seen as ill be moving away soon after getting married, I wanted to make her stay special! I loved giving her surprises throughout the day and seeing her reaction on the things I had planned! I done a double whammy by surprising my mum along with her though :) surprising people with gifts, favours or good is definitely a favourite of mine that I will continue to do!

20121003-194014.jpg

Favourite place of the month has to go to the Millennium Dome! It’s now Valle the o2 Arena but was built in the year 2000 as a mark of the new millennium! It took years to build and is right on the edge of the River Thames in Central London! I am from London, live in London and LOVE London but had never been! So I had such a good time when I went there for the first time last week! I loved the rather, atmosphere and the beautiful scenery! If you live in the UK, definitely check out all the offers that are available for the shows in the o2 because its definitely worth it.

20121003-193922.jpg

Next has to be a favourite food! What have I loved eating??? Has to be donuts! I’ve got an obsession with them! I’ve loved munching through the icing and sprinkles to a chewy soft centre! In fact, ill be doing a blog post on how to make your own donuts soon!

20121003-193842.jpg

The next favourite is a piece of clothing! For me, this has to be the new flatforms that have come into fashion recently! I recently bought a pair from River Island and will be purchasing more as time goes on because they are SO comfy! Just be careful, because of their shape, they can hurt the ball of your foot if you stand for too long!

20121003-193935.jpg

Next favourite.. I don’t a blog post on it too! GLASSES AND HIJAB! I’ve loved this new look and I’m SOOOOO going to be wearing this to death this winter! If like me, the prescription of your lenses is quite high and your glasses make your eyes look small, order some clear lens glasses and wear with contacts for a bold fashion statement! ASOS have some great pairs that I’ve bought recently!

20121003-193928.jpg

Last but not least, my favourite interior decorating item is candles! The colder months have arrived and there’s nothing I love more than lighting a massive candle and eating some yummy good! I’m loving angle ornaments too! This tea light holder I got from TK Maxx and I would recommend keeping your eyes peeled with their products because I’ve been visiting there more and more often!

NAILS NAILS NAILS


20120906-221806.jpg

You guys may have noticed from my manicure tutorial that I like nail art! Something I love more than that is designing my nails after! At the moment, I’m loving soft colours and I’m into Aztec print so anything which has sharp bold lines is a YES!

20120906-221330.jpg

Here’s some nail designs that I love doing!

20120906-221245.jpg

If you’re not too good at doing the hand you write with, do that one first! That way you won’t struggle with doing the opposite hand with wet nails! It’s much easier! Alternatively.. Do it really messy and get your mum to clear it with a cue tip..

20120906-221338.jpg

I’ve used y mum to show you guys that age is but a number and nail art designs are there for anyone who wants to try them! Don’t be afraid to express yourself through your nails! But always look after your hands if you’re not keen on a bald design!

20120906-221321.jpg

Thanks for helping me mum!

20120906-221305.jpg

I used a nail art pen for the French tip on the red tip however, prefer using eye liner! I just find eye liner so much more easier to use! It’s handy and available anywhere an I think most people have liquid eye liner anyway! Just remember to use a base coat when using eye liner otherwise it washes away!

20120906-221954.jpg

The trick to applying perfect nail polish is use as less strokes as possible! Load up your brush evenly and one stride in the middle with two on either side following, follow up with a second coat to even out the nail colour.

False nails are an option too! I recently tried ImPress nails and I was.. Impressed ;) The only thing is that they feel strange and they didn’t last me a week! They taught me though that I use y nails for a lot of things, hence why my nails are tittle and break easily.

20120906-221431.jpg

Also, I have a vast collection of nail polishes HOWEVER, you don’t need thousands of nail polishes! These are some staple colours which I feel everyone should have!
