October Beauty Favourites!


20131101-133203.jpg
It’s that time of year again when a month has gone by and you’re nearing the end of the year! Have a look at some of my favourites from the month of October.. Very autumn/fall inspired!

20131101-133228.jpg
L’oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Micellar Cleansing Solution – £4.99
When I bought this cleanser, I wasn’t expecting high praises for it, but I’m amazed at how well it removes makeup. It’s effortless and is so simple. It really does feel like water and leaves no residue on your skin at all, making it feel as soft as the day your mother birthed you! Definitely worth it!

Burberry Body – £45 (35ml)
When autumn/ fall comes around, I love changing up my scents a bit. Every season, I like to have a set of new scents that I try to use up (mainly because I have so much perfume). But last month, Burberry Body had me going crazy! I got this sample in a GlossyBox and I fell in love with it but I forgot I had it! I’ve now ordered a full size and I’m so excited for it to arrive so I can actually spray it rather than spill it on myself! It’s a lovely day and evening scent and is really musky and deep.. Not fruity in the slightest! It’ll be one of the most sophisticated scents in your collection!

20131101-133324.jpg
MONU Illuminating Primer – £22 50ml
I received this in this months GlossyBox and although I’ve only used it for 1 week, I’m in awe! This is a primer which holds makeup in place and makes your face look brighter and glowing! Check, check, check for all the benefits they claim this cream to have! It’s amazing! It’s light to put on top of moisturiser and it adds a really subtle glitter to your face, which is actually so flattering! I love using this whilst the heating has been on because my skin can look quite dry however, not with this baby on my skin.. It makes your skin look more radiant than ever!

20131101-135102.jpg
MAC 109 brush – £27
When I bought this brush, I was expecting big things because of the hype about it and I’m not surprised! I have loved using this brush for so many things: blusher, bronzer, contour and powder! It’s the perfect size because it’s not too big and the shape means it fits in the crevices of your face really easily. It’s not the softest brush by any means, but it grabs and dispenses powder really well all over the skin!

20131101-135139.jpg
Benefit Fake Up Concealer (in shade 1) – £18.50
And here we are again with yet another staple product from Benefit Cosmetics! They are doing really well with me lately! I bought this around 6 months ago and initially disliked t! It claims to be hydrating and creaseless and it really is hydrating! You can tell from the swatch how moisturising and creamy it is! Creaseless: no! May be my eye creases are a little too deep to handle for this little wand of magic. I don’t mind at all though! During the colder months, I’ve loved applying this to brighten and hydrate my under eye area! It has medium coverage. It’s difficult to get used to at first but it’s SOOOOO good once you get the hang of it.. LOVE!

No. 7 Stay Perfect Lipstick in Classic Rose – £9.50
And next up, this amazing lipstick! When autumn/fall comes around, I have to have a lip colour a little darker but I can’t rock mega dark lips, mainly because I’m a wimp! I like wearing rose colours because I feel they suit my skin tone! I actually got this lipstick free after buying a few things from No.7 (comes in a set with a lip brush, gloss and lipstick). I love how velvety it feels and it’s super pigmented! It’s completely matte in colour and lasts ages! Wears off beautifully and is as cheap as chips if you want to buy it.. Staple for the colder months for sure!

20131101-141112.jpg

20131101-141120.jpg
MAC Posey Cream Blush – £18
When autumn comes, my cheeks go super dry and applying powder seems like the worst thing in the world, so cream blush is a saviour! I mentioned this blush in a blog last year and I still love it as much as I did then! It’s a gorgeous orange- toned brown colour that works superb on that pale cold skin we all get in autumn/ winter! It isn’t too creamy and stays on my skin for longer than any other cream blush, plus, it’s super pigmented so I’ve been loving using this!

20131101-165429.jpg

20131101-165833.jpg
Benefit Watts Up – £24.50
Like I mentioned before, the colder months dry out and my skin and leave it feeling really horrible and dry in areas. So I tend to break out the highlighter more so during wintertime! I received a sample of this highlighter and ignore it for a while until I tried it a few months ago and was blown away! It’s almost the exact same shade as my skin (may be a little more pink) and has a beautiful shimmer! It really does look wet! You can see from the swatch how it applies before and after blending! It’s not a gold nor silver shimmer so will suit almost every skin tone! Perfect for winter!

L’oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Skin Micellar Solution


L’oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Micellar Cleansing Solution

20131027-165026.jpg
When my BioDerma recently finished (I went through 2 500ml bottles in less than a year), I was so sad! I had never used a cleansing water before and had so badly fallen in love with it! It effortlessly took makeup off and I didn’t think I’d be able to find anything like it!

When the last drop touched my face, I decided to man up and go to boots to have a snoop around all the different cleansers the drugstore had to offer! I knew that some big brands have amazing ones too but I didn’t want to have to pay tonnes of money for something I use everyday! I had a look at No7, Soap & Glory and then finally L’oreal!

When I took my makeup off the first night, I was AMAZED! I had put on a full face of makeup including waterproof eyeliner and this just wiped it off! I was surprised at L’oreal to make such a big brand dupe! I’m not too keen on the packaging because of the way the liquid comes out.. It spews out and often spills. But I love how slimline it is, making it perfect for travel.

20131027-165041.jpg

You can see how it removes makeup. In the swatch shows a cheek stain and waterproof eyeliner and it came off with little or no effort at all. I always use the solution on a baby wipe (Huggies Value Pack- £0.97p) and I wipe my makeup off.

20131029-214422.jpg

It’s fantastic value for money too coming in at a whopping £4.99 for 200ml! And it’s equivalent to Bioderma which costs £9.99 for 250ml! You an get this from any drugstore! Super handy and lovely!

Bourjois Nail Varnish


20130821-010005.jpg

I was recently on ASOS to see what they had new in the beauty department as they often stock limited edition items and I wasn’t wrong. I saw these Bourjois nail varnishes in some of the most lovely colours I’ve ever seen.. I just had to get them!

20130821-010019.jpg

When I received them, I loved the packaging immediately and they really are tiny! But.. ‘Small and Mighty’ are the correct way to describe them. All of the swatches shown are actually done with 1 to 1&1/2 coats and they are opaque! They dry very quickly too!

20130821-010014.jpg

With six mini nail varnishes going for £9, you can’t go wrong! I love them and have no idea which colour to paint my nails, now!

Bourjois Limited Edition Pastel Mania Mini Nail Polish Set – £9

Sleek Candy Collection Make Up


20130611-180915.jpg

If you guys have seen my make up collection post or follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I LOVE SLEEK EYESHADOWS (I have almost all of them!)

20130611-181156.jpg

So when they came out with a Limited Edition collection, I couldn’t say no!

The collection consists on their usual 12 colour eyeshadow palette in Candy, Blush by 3 in Sweet Cheeks and Pout Paint in LOL-Lip-Pop (clever, ehy?)

20130611-181010.jpg

The eyeshadow palette consists of 12 eyeshadows ranging in matte, shimmer and pearl finishes! As with all Sleek eyeshadows, the pigmentation and colour range is FANTASTIC! Considering the whole palette comes in at £7.99, even if you only like 1 shade, it’s cheaper to buy this whole palette than a single MAC eyeshadow (even in pan form)!

20130611-181018.jpg

20130611-181022.jpg
I love the pink and purple shades and the shimmer colours are just the right intensity. I find that some brands have shimmer eyeshadows which fade in colour and leave an awkward glitter after them but not with Sleek shadows.. They last on your skin for a long time and fade off beautifully. This palette has not failed to impress me.

20130611-181148.jpg

If I could change anything about this palette, I would have liked to have seen a brown rather than black (perhaps to represent Cola Bottles). Mint Cream and Apple Sour are too similar and there are 3 green toned colours in the palette.. Which they could have swapped with a yellow (to represent banana candy) and because it is limited edition.. How about a pan with 2 colours in it? That would be fantastic too! Just all suggestions for improvement or individuality from other brands!

This Blush by 3 palette is definitely different to what we’re used to because it hosts a cream blush! The colours couldn’t be more vibrant and I love the way they used 3 blushes rather than their individual ones and it costs £9.99 for all three! I love Sleek blushes because of their unique colour range!

20130611-181250.jpg

The cream is so pigmented and isn’t a Cream to Powder formula so is fantastically dewy and has a glow- like finish on the skin perfect for the summer time! The middle colour in the shade Dolly Mix is my favourite because I love purple shades!

20130611-181255.jpg

20130611-181301.jpg

I love Sleek packaging because of its sleek look (oh I see where the name comes from now)! The applicator isn’t something that I’d use for eye makeup but I love using these for nail art!

Sleek are available in Superdrug in the UK and they also have a website where they deliver internationally.

You can buy their collection here.

Feel Unique Beauty Haul


20130530-232522.jpg

With the summertime approaching, I thought it would be perfect to pick a few new summer releases!

I decided to shop on Feel Unique because of their free delivery and because they had a discount code available (I got £9 off my shopping!)!

Dior Addict Lipstick in On The Beach
When I saw the new Dior collection, it looked AMAZING! I’m in love with Dior lipsticks and this one did not fail! It’s the perfect sheer coral (swinging more to the orange side) shade! It looks so good on my colouring at the moment and its one of those staple summer shades

20130530-232124.jpg

20130530-232128.jpg

20130530-232132.jpg

Dior Birds of Paradise Nail Varnish Duo
These colours just screamed out at my and I had to get them! They have a light shimmer but are mostly just glossy and opaque with a solid first coat! I haven’t tested them for chipping but I have high hopes! The blue shade is so different for me.. I’m ready for the challenge!

20130530-232208.jpg

20130530-232214.jpg

Stila Custom Blush in Self Adjusting Pink
When I saw this on the website, it looked so unique! I mentioned in previous blog posts how the Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain used to adjust itself to your skins pH balance and when I saw this powder, I was so in awe! I’ve loved using it thus far! Only thing is.. I don’t think it adjusts itself at all.. It looks the same on the people I’ve tried it on! However, the colour is gorgeous for summer!

20130530-232312.jpg

20130530-232317.jpg

Dainty Doll Eyeshadow in 001
When I first saw this eyeshadow, I thought it was a blush! I often use eyeshadows as blushes so its not news to me! When I tried it on my cheeks, I was AMAZED! Because it has a red undertone, it makes a good blush and I’ve also been using as a crease colour to my bare eyelid and it looks so beautiful! It blends effortlessly and is really well pigmented too!

20130530-232353.jpg

20130530-232359.jpg

Nubar Nail Varnish in Navy Blue
This nail varnish stuck out to me because my previous navy blue nail varnish ran out recently and it used to chip like CRAZY! I haven’t tried this shade just yet but I just know I’m going to love using this as an all over and nail art colour!

Limited edition Real Techniques Brushes


20130526-230734.jpg

Sam from Pixiwoo done it again with a new set if brushes that have had me ditch all my other brushes! If there’s one thing I love in a make up brush, it’s duo fibres!

I bought a MAC limited edition Duo fibre brush set a while back and haven’t touched it (I’m finding it hard to start using it cause its so pristine).

20130526-230738.jpg
**You can get them from Boots and Superdrug in the UK.

The brushes are uber soft and have such a good density to them! They apply effortlessly and pick up powders like a magnet and the eye shadow brush blends seamlessly! I really like the black and white design, too because it stands out from all my other brushes!

20130526-230904.jpg

I wish the brushes came in a limited edition travel case though because although the brushes look good, the foam padding they came in is not good for storing them in when using a make up bag.

April Beauty Favourites!


20130429-214614.jpg

I’ve been blogging everyday during the month of April and I’ve mentioned some of the beauty essentials that I’ve been loving but here’s a post collectively showing you all the products!

The biggest change for me has been foundation! I’ve had Nars Sheer Glow for ages but recently I’ve been using it mixed with moisturiser and by itself (when I want more coverage). I love the colour, how it feels and how it looks!

20130429-214642.jpg

20130429-214646.jpg
** Nars Sheer Glow- Light 4 Deauville

Whenever I use foundation, I have to contour my face and this product has saved my life! I love using it to contour my cheekbones, jawline, temples as well as my nose and even crease! This colour is perfect for me during summer!

20130429-214632.jpg

20130429-214637.jpg
** Sleek Face Contour Kit- Medium

When I’m not using foundation I’ve been using my Laura Mercier Mineral Pressed Powder! This is a full coverage foundation but during these warmer months, wearing a powder helps set the face! This colour is perfect and it helps make your skin look flawless!

20130429-214656.jpg

20130429-214701.jpg
** Laura Mercier Mineral Pressed Powder- Real Sands

I recently done a blog post in this MUA eyeshadow palette saying how similar it was to the Urban Decay Naked Palette! This is such good value for money and I’ve been loving a neutral eye for the days when I don’t want to wear much on my eyes but still want to look made up!

20130429-214706.jpg

20130429-214709.jpg
** MUA- Undressed

Instead of using winged eyeliner, I’ve been using my KIKO Super Colour Eyeliner on my bottom lash line! I love how fine the felt too applicator is and the colours are so vivid! They look fantastic as a pop of colour to the face!

20130429-214714.jpg

20130429-214719.jpg
** KIKO Super Colour Eye Liners

MAC Pink Swoon was the first ever blush I bought from MAC! And I’ve loved it since I ever got it! It’s a lovely sheer pink colour that is buildable.. Although it doesn’t last all day! I love the look it gives your skin and I think it would suit any skin colouring!

20130429-214724.jpg

20130429-214728.jpg
** MAC- Pink Swoon

I’ve never been one for highlighters but I’m going eyebrow crazy lately! A well kept eye brow really does make a well kept face! I love the cream to powder formula and the highlighting end is a perfect colour for highlighting your eyebrow arch, inner corner and even cheekbones!

20130429-214736.jpg
** KIKO- Perfect Eyes Highlighting Duo

I’ve loved blogging everyday during April and I’d like to thank everyone who’s kept up! I’ll be back soon with more!

1 product.. 5 uses! Talcum powder!


I’m a big fan of multi- use products and recently, I think I found the best of the best.. Talcum powder! Originally used when changing baby diapers to avoid wet rashes, these days, so many products are based off powders! You can get this from the £1 store and it lasts ages!

20130421-114103.jpg

1.) Getting greasy hair? Sprinkle some talcum powder into the roots of your hair and massage in to have your scalp feeling fresh!

2.) Want more voluminous hair? Sprinkle talcum powder into the roots of your hair and massage in to give your hair some lift!

3.) Put too much body lotion on? Pour some talcum into your hand and lightly tub in your body to remove any excess moisture you have!

4.) Anti- bacterial? When your feet are wet out of the shower, you’re more likely to get feet- related conditions such as athletes foot. Sprinkle some talcum powder onto your feet to absorb any excess moisture!

5.) Smell like a baby? who doesn’t love the smell of a baby? Use this as perfume by rubbing into your skin.. Especially arm pits (will absorb moisture) leaving behind a gorgeous smell!
