Disappointing products of 2013


20140121-223327.jpg

Although 2013 was a good year for my beauty regime, there were a few beauty products which did let me down a bit! This isn’t to say that they wouldn’t work on other people, but I thought it would be good to show what products don’t suit me!

Batiste Dry Shampoo – Fresh & Flirty Blush – £4.99

20140121-224250.jpg
* When I got this dry shampoo, I was hoping that it would help with ‘hijab hair’ that us Hijabi’s get after wearing a scarf all day! It’s superb at adding a bit of volume and reviving limp hair but it left an AWFUL white cast on my hair! I looked like an old lady! I know they do a spray specifically for brunette’s, so I may just have to try that!

Topshop Cream Blush – Afternoon Tea – £6

20140121-224352.jpg
* With this product, I was so excited to try if after I had bought it because I loved the colour, however, I should have known better! Cream blushes and me have a notorious relationship because they don’t last on me unless I set them with a powder! This was the only cream blush I got this year but I feel as though although its cream-to-powder formulation, it does nothing and wears off momentarily! Was a waste of money to be honest!

Bobbi Brown Corrector – Bisque – £18.50

20140121-224422.jpg
* This was actually more of an impulse purchase which didn’t work out! I was with someone who said they swear by it and because I had heard so much about it, I was crazy to try it however, it took me ages to figure out what colour I was, how to apply it and now.. To finish it! It’s really cakey and thick and also I feel as though the shade is off! It creases really badly and when I try to set it, it makes my under eyes look dry.. Very strange product for me!

Eyeko Skinny Mini Liquid Eyeliner – Black – £12

20140121-224507.jpg
* This was one of the first ever products I have tried from Eyeko! I was so excited to try it because I loved using my L’Oreal Perfect Slim eyeliner and really got into the felt tip eyeliner method! However, this was really dry the second time I used it even though I stored it nib face down! It’s really black and has a good applicator but the product was just dry and really hard to revive! It was so dry, it was tugging at my eyes! I’m don’t know if I got a bad one or whether they’re all bad however, I’m still open to trying Eyeko products.. No hard feelings!

Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Extreme Plump Pucker – Pink Out Loud – £10

20140121-224526.jpg
* When it comes to lipgloss, last year was a big shiny mess for me! I tried so many glosses ranging from £1 to £20 and by far and beyond, I was disappointed the most by this one! It is Soooooooo strong, it made my lips feel like I had had anaesthetic injections in them! It was really painful and I didn’t feel as though my lips had changed in the slightest in size! When I apply it on top of lipstick, I can’t tell I even have gloss on! It’s a nice colour and has a good finish and pigment, but it’s hard to wear!

Essie Nail Varnish – Russian Roulette – £7.99

20140121-224550.jpg
* This nail varnish colour is AMAZING! I love this red because it’s a true red and not orange nor blue toned! It looks good on any skin tone and is so beautiful to apply! It has a big brush and the colour is super pigmented BUT it stains my nails SOOOOO bad! It took me months to grow out the colour because it just wouldn’t fade off! I never applied a base coat but the staining was so bad, I’m not sure if an average base coat would protect my nails! It’s like war paint!

2013 Beauty Favourites


20140117-202546.jpg

2013 was a good year for my beauty regiment! I have loved trying tonnes of new products and there are definitely some that I have used more than others! I’ve had to choose my most used and a lot of these are repurchases because I ran out of the first!

Garnier Simply Essentials 2-in-1 Make Up Remover – £3.25

20140117-202823.jpg

I started using this a few months after my Bio Derma finished! I had bought a another cleanser from L’Oreal but after that finished, I wanted to use something different! This cleanser is like a 2 in 1 solution which has an oil based remover which sits on top of the liquid at the bottom! Give it a shake, and this becomes your favourite cleanser EVER! It has a slightly greasy feeling because it does contain oil but I have quite oily skin and I don’t find that it makes me extra shiny or oily feeling! It removes makeup effortlessly and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth rather then dry, which a lot of cleansers can do! It’s good for your budget and Garnier is available worldwide, so take advantage of it no matter where in the world you are!

Soap & Glory Righteous Butter – £10

20140117-204750.jpg

This year has not been the best for my body because my eczema has returned and with a vengeance! Because I’ve been so dry all over for most of the year, I’ve had to incorporate a really thick body cream to help combat it and the only one that I’ve found which helps is the Righteous Butter! It’s super moisturising but isn’t cakey and doesn’t make me feel sticky, even when I sweat! TMI? Because it’s heavily scented, it gives off a nice odour too but doesn’t irritate my skin in the slightest! A tub lasts ages and it’s well worth the money! A definite must- have for me this year!

Lady Gaga Fame – £31

20140117-210603.jpg

This was my only new perfume purchase this year because I had put a ban on myself as I have so many but I have loved using this! It was on a really good offer during the Christmas time and having used a sample of it already, I knew I love it! It has a lovely scent which I truly feel can be worn any time of the day! It’s quite a deep smell and isn’t floral at all! Not one for younger people though as it’s quite a mature scent! The bottle is beautiful too with a real edgy design and the liquid is black! How cool is that?!

Benefit Fake Up Concealer – £18.50

20140117-211422.jpg

When I first got this concealer, I thought the coverage was not good and that it was too much moisture and not enough colour (concealer) in the tube! However, I’ve been using it since then and have found that with a dual fibre brush, this concealer is AMAZING! It looks super natural and I have the lightest shade so it’s extra brightening! I still have to set it so it’s not creaseless on me, as it claims! I just love this, though! It’s such a pleasure to use because it blends effortlessly and is so long lasting! I only use this under my eyes but it works for me as I never use concealer on the rest of my face anyway! If you can, grab it because although it costs a lot, I’ve used it for almost a whole year and there’s still a few months left in it!

Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara – £10.99

20140117-213004.jpg

When it comes to mascaras, I was the type of person who used to use a few mascaras at once and I was looking for a mascara a few years ago and found this one! I was so excited to see it on offer and because I didn’t want to open it, I left it sealed and so.. 2 years after buying, I have opened it! And it revives so many memories of my high school days! I love the thin brush and the extra liquid-y consistency because it just glides on! Granted, it’s not waterproof in the slightest and if you have oily eyelids, it will most likely transfer, but if like me, your eye makeup doesn’t smudge.. This lengthens and curls your lashes effortlessly!

Collection Colour Lash Clear Mascara – £1.99

20140117-214241.jpg

This year has been big on brows for me and by that, I mean that I’ve been trying to do something with them, rather than leaving them bare! I don’t really like the way my eyebrows look with pencil or powder through them, so when I found clear mascara, it helps to darken them and keep them in place without being OTT! I have repurchased this twice this year and it’s so good! It’s mega affordable and it lasts all day.. SUPERB!

L’Oreal Super Liner Perfect Slim – £5.49

20140117-231432.jpg

Eyeliner used to be my only make up item and I’m so into it during summertime because it helps me to look I’ve made an effort, when really I haven’t! This felt tip applicator is really easy to use and makes eyeliner application so easy! I love using this because it it doesn’t dry out and ever since I bought it, I’ve stopped using my beloved gel eyeliners! This is so long lasting and super black! You can create a thick or thin line and you get a precise look! It’s really affordable and easy to get gold of and it comes in so handy when I’m on the go because I don’t need to carry brushes or faff around!

Z Palette Make Up Geek & MAC eywshadows

20140117-232125.jpg

20140117-232133.jpg

There was only one palette which I gravitated towards this year and that my be loved ‘neutral Z Palette’! This contains MAC and Makeup Geek eyeshadows and I’ve chopped and changed it tonnes if times in order to to get to this stage, where I love it! No matter what eye look I’m doing, I always gravitate to this palette and I’m a huge fan of MUG eyeshadows! They’re super pigmented, have a great colour range and are so cheap! The MAC shadows I also got on quite a good offer so no hard feelings? I use this palette every time I wear eyeshadow and even when travelling, I take this with me! Obsessed? I think so! ‘Cocoa Bear’ from MUG is my favourite eyeshadow of all time because it compliments my eyes a lot!

Essie nail varnish in Splash of Grenadine – £7.99

20140118-114146.jpg

Every time I paint my nails, I have this big battle with myself about the colour I should use! I love purple colours on me and when I saw this shade on someone on a Instagram, I grabbed it! I always have this on and it looks good on short and long nails! It has a way of adding colour but still being fairly mellow! I’m so glad we now sell Essie in the UK in drug stores because they go have unique shades! The brush on this is super thick which makes application really easy and it doesn’t chip as easily as other Essie nail varnishes I have tried!

L’Oreal Glam Shine in Tart Lollipop – £6.99

20140118-114540.jpg

Now, with this product, it’s not about the colour, it’s about the product inside.. Amazing! I got really big on glosses at the beginning of the year because I fell in love with the look of pink shiny lips! I love having my lips feel hydrated, and this was the best way I could do that! I love the applicator, the small packaging and I love the way that my lips tingle slightly, after I use it! It gives a super glossy look and this is definitely one lip gloss that I have reached for constantly, over the year!

No. 7 Stay Perfect Lipstick in Classic Rose – £9.50

20140118-114938.jpg

This one is a but if a cheat because I believe the colour is limited edition.. If not, GO GET IT! I got this colour in a free gift set a few months ago but by far, I’ve used this the most out of all my other lips products! I love deep pink colours and because this one is matte, it’s so easy to wear! It has a velvety finish but even when it is dabbed on and used as a stain, it looks so fresh and natural! A little goes a long way because it’s a stain but I really enjoy every time I apply it!

MONU Illuminating Primer – £22

20140118-115658.jpg

I don’t always use a primer but for this product, I’d like to make an exception please! I recovered this in a Glossy Box a few months ago and was blown away by how amazing it it! It is supposed to work under foundation to give your face a brightening effect but I think it looks amazing even on its own.. If you’re pale enough. It makes your skin look NEW! Which is such a strange thing to say but it truly looks like you have flawless skin that is super healthy! I’ve still got the sample size because it seems to be lasting forever so I won’t purchase the full size until I’m running out of this! It doesn’t seem to make my make up last longer, but rest assured, this has been one if my most favourite beauty products this year!

And there we have it folks, the end of another year! Here’s to 2014 being better than quite a rough 2013! I’ve got big plans for my blog this year so stay tuned for next month for Fe-Blog-Uary where I’ll be blogging every day of the month!

What were your favourite products of 2013? Or, was your favourite event?

Bicester Village Haul: DKNY and MAC


Whilst I was in Bicester Village and was bumping into all the shops I wasn’t interested in, I FINALLY went into a store called ‘The Cosmetics Company’, which little to my knowledge was an outlet store (which I should have known because Bicester Village is outlet central). I was so happy to see some amazing brands in there but obviously I was drawn to their MAC counter, where they had their limited edition collections at a discount! I wanted everything, but chose this..

Ted Baker Make Up


20131111-203925.jpg

In the UK, Boots are really well known for their Christmas sales and the products they release from tonnes of brands for the festive season! I recently popped in there and saw Ted Baker make up kits, which is completely new for me to use! I wanted to try it because Ted Baker is a high end brand, so I grabbed this kit.. Have a look..

The Great and the Gorgeous Cosmetic Gift Set – £40 (they have now put up the price)
The kit came in at £19 (I was so chuffed at the affordable price but they still have it in their ‘3 for 2’ sale). As always with Ted Baker, the packaging is incredible and the products inside are made of good quality!

The kit comes with: a bronzing compact, lipstick crayons, eye liner, shimmer eye creams, eye glitter, false eyelashes and glue, nail polishes, illuminating liquids and cosmetic brushes! Tonnes of products!

20131111-204036.jpg20131111-204043.jpg20131111-204048.jpg20131111-204055.jpg20131111-204103.jpg

20131111-204139.jpg

20131111-204150.jpg

The swatches of the products show the quality of the makeup! It really is worth it!
The colours are autumn happy and I just love the idea of carrying around that rose gold compact!

The brushes are MAC quality.. Seriously! I love the lip crayon shades which are super moisturising and pigmented AND.. All the nail varnishes and highlighting (illuminating) pots, are crazy beautiful! The eyeliner is pigmented and long lasting and the other eye make up (lashes, glitter and cream shadow), are so natural and easy to wear!

Barry M Makeup Haul


I recently went to Boots and picked up some amazing products from Barry M! I mentioned in a previous blog post that they had released some autumnal matte shade nail paints and they looked amazing, so I picked them up too! Take a look at my mini haul!

Autumn beauty favourites


I love me some cold weather, hence why you’ll notice a lot of blog posts about the weather this time of year! I like to stick to some staple pieces throughout autumn and here they are:

20131101-180449.jpg

20131101-180459.jpg
Avon super shock gel eyeliner ‘Blackberry’ – £6
When it comes to eyeliner, I’m the Queen! I have tonnes of colours and it’s my ‘go-to’ for when I want to add colour to my face! I like using black but during autumn, I like to use a slightly more warmer colour and a deep red is perfect for that. I have brown eyes, so using brown and red tones compliments them a lot and oxblood, maroon and scarlet are the top autumn colours! This eyeliner is so long lasting and it’s super pigmented! It’s actually a really deep purple colour with intense red glitter in it hence the shade- blackberry. Has superb lasting time and is super pigmented too! I love using this on the waterline and smudging into my top lashes when I want extra smoke (as shown in image above).

20131102-170321.jpg

20131102-170501.jpg
Accessorize Merged Baked Blusher ‘Scandal’ – £5
** Currently not available on their website
When I first purchased this blusher Miss. A one day, I knew if love it! It’s a gorgeous metallic-looking dusty pink! I applied it to my cheeks when I was quite tanned and to be honest, it was almost invisible. Then when I tried using it as my tan wore off, it began to look better and better! It has a gorgeous sheen which doesn’t look like glitter at all and is so pigmented.. Even though it’s baked, it has a lot of depth to it and isn’t a flat colour! It’s smooth to apply and although I first thought it wouldn’t look good as a blusher on darker skin, it adds a gorgeous glow when used as a highlight! I love this stuff and because it’s so valuable, I love it even more! It’s perfect for adding a glow to your skin during the drier months!

20131102-171414.jpg

20131102-171533.jpg
Maybelline Forever Strong Pro ‘Midnight Red’ – £4.09
Ok let’s just appreciate how beautiful this nail varnish is! I love it for adding a bit of colour to the hands! It’s really long lasting and lasts like a gel meaning it doesn’t chip at all and had a high gloss finish! I really like the brush and colour pay off, too! It’s as cheap as chips and Maybelline is available in any country.. WOOHOO!

20131102-180722.jpg

20131102-180754.jpg
Bourjois Shine Edition ’23’ – £7.99
When this range of lipsticks came out, I was so excited to try a few and I grabbed them as soon as I can! The colours I chose were very autumnal and this one is by far and beyond, one of my favourites! I really like red and purple tones and this combines both if my loves! It really is shiny and has a real glossy look to it on your lips. It’s super pigmented and all thought not very long lasting, it is super easy to top up! It’s good value for money and they have a great colour range too.. Definitely one to check out!

20131102-181549.jpg

20131102-181601.jpg
MAC Sheertone Blush ‘Breath of Plum’ – £18
I like bright blushers and I definitely cannot have a face without it! So when I saw this shade earlier on this year, I knew I’d love using it in autumn! It’s sheer, so isn’t a strong rush of purple colour which would look odd and so adds a deep colour without looking dark! It’s a good change from the bright shades because deep colours look better on pale and cold looking skin! It’s soft to touch and is super finely milled colour.. Superb!

20131102-182122.jpg

20131102-182132.jpg
KIKO Eyeshadow ‘133’ – £1.99
When I bought this eyeshadow, I wanted to use it as a blending colour when doing dark smokey eyes, but I love it so much as a smokey shade alone, it’s become a staple for autumn for me! It’s a deep burgundy colour with a copper undertone! It looks super nice mixed with the Avon eyeliner, and it matches so well! It is really pigmented and is soft and smooth to blend! I love this shade for autumn heaps and bounds!

20131102-183725.jpg

20131102-183746.jpg
Real Techniques ‘Expert Face’ Brush – £9.99
The hype of Real Techniques brushes is so high at the moment and it’s evident why when you use this brush! It’s a dense and stuff synthetic brush which is slightly oval shape! It’s so good to use with cream products and heavy powdering! Apply blush, highlighter, bronzer, contour, foundation, concealer and even powder with this brush and your makeup will look flawless! It’s as cheap as chips and lasts so well even after washing! I love using this brush as much as possible and for most of the face products listed above, this brush works perfectly!

September Glossy Box


There’s nothing I love more than receiving my Glossy Box without even realising it’s been a month.. A blessing for the surprise and a curse because I’ve lost another month!

20130913-015300.jpg

First of all, the box is AMAZING! It’s a ginormous Union Jack flag and I can’t wait to display it proudly in my room! The theme for this month was inspired by London Fashion Week and all the products are from brands in the UK. This month came with a unique magazine which was a nice little bit of literature to read on a small journey!

20130913-015227.jpg

20130913-015310.jpg

20130913-015328.jpg
** The products inside are listed in an informative little booklet

Let’s take a look at what was in the box..

The first eye-tem (pardon the pun) that jumped out at me were these self-adhesive eyelashes! I’m a bit sceptical of these but I’m saving to try them on a special occasion because they look beautiful and natural! I don’t know how well they’ll stick, but I’m ready for the challenge!

20130913-015334.jpg
**Eyelure Pre-Glued lashes in 109

The next thing I awed over was this Onyx eyeliner by BeABombShell! It’s a jumbo eyeliner felt tip that makes a super neat line! After I stopped buying L’oreal Carbon Gloss, I never used eyeliner until I bought my first felt tip applicator one! This is highly pigmented and makes a super clean line.. PERFECT!

20130913-015340.jpg

20130913-021104.jpg
** Be A Bombshell Onyx Eyeliner

When I saw this perfume, I loved that I could try it! I saw a favourite YouTuber of mine Shaaanxo mention that she bought this recently and loved it! So when I received it, I knew is like it! It’s a really strange scent. It’s musky, floral, fruity and evening-y! I really like the bottle, too which they’ve designed to look good from whatever angle you look at it from! I love it when I get perfume samples in miniature versions of their full size bottles.. Looks super cute on my vanity!

20130913-015348.jpg
** Elizabeth Arden Untold perfume

I’m not usually too into hair care because I don’t show my hair.. Durr? But I don’t mind a serum every now and again because I don’t always like using conditioner on my hair. I tried this straight away because my hair had just dried and I quite like it. The serum is semi-runny and not too thick and absorbs really well. I applied it to the ends of my dry hair and it gave it a bit of shine and lessened any frizz that I had.. Nothing miraculous and I’m not too keen on the smell but I like the handy size and the bottle comes in a pump.. Bonus!

20130913-015354.jpg

20130913-015400.jpg
** Toni & Guy Classic Shine Gloss Serum

When I saw the next thing, I was quite surprised by the name.. I had heard of this old wives tale for a while no and the idea is exactly what the product name suggests! I like the consistency which is uber thick and it really moisturises well.. However, half of the sample was air.. WHICH SUCKS! But it’s handy because you can carry it in your bag to use on your cuticles, elbows and wherever you get dry!

20130913-015429.jpg
** Dr Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips

Top 5 L’oreal products


20130819-175020.jpg

When it comes to drug store/ high street brands, L’oreal is up there in my top favourites! Continuing on with my ‘top 5’ series, here’s my favourite 5 products from this lovely brand!

I purchased Nude Magique BB cream a while back when it was first released and I fell in love with it! The idea behind it is that the product comes out a grey colour and the more you blend it in, it adapts to your skin tone and has coverage! It looks super natural on the skin and you can barely feel it! It kind of dries to a powder consistency so doesn’t let you shine. It is supposed to have BB qualities too but I’m not too fussed about that.. It’s just a bonus. It doesn’t have a massive range of colours but because it adapts to your skin, you can generalise a shade.
20130819-175047.jpg
L’oreal Paris Nude Magique BB Cream in ‘light’ – £9.99

I bought the Lumi Magique primer a while back (around 2 years ago) when I first heavily got into make up but didn’t want to spend a lot on it. I really wanted to try a primer to see what it could do and this one, to this day, is one of my favourite. It’s a luminous primer which makes your skin look glowing! You can mix it with your foundation, moisturiser or normal primer to create an overall dewy look. You can use it as a highlighter on the peaks of your face. You can even use as an eyeshadow/ base. It has such a natural pearl which doesn’t look shiny or greasy on your skin and it helps your make up last longer too!

20130819-175301.jpg

20130819-175306.jpg
L’oreal Lumi Magique Primer – £9.99

This one is a recent purchase for me but I have fallen in love with it straight away! A while back.. L’oreal used to sell a carbon gloss liquid eyeliner which they discontinued, much to the dismay of a lot of eyeliner lovers! The nib and product in this is really similar (although not as glossy). I really like how you can create a really thin or thick line depending on your hand pressure! It’s a must for new eyeliner- users! It doesn’t dry out quickly, you can use it on top of eyeshadows and is really long lasting on the lid. It’s also very black and highly pigmented!

20130819-175334.jpg

20130819-175339.jpg
L’oreal Superliner Perfect Slim in ‘Black Intense’ – £6.99

When the Revlon Lip Butters were released, L’oreal quickly bought out competition in the way of these Rouge Caresse lipsticks! They’re a moisturising and sheer colour that are super flattering! Every colour would suit any skin tone. I like the packaging too because it feels high end, even though it’s not. They don’t have the best longevity but because they’re not a bold colour, they’re quick to reapply. I love the shade I got in this coral red colour which adds a super nice pop of colour without being dramatic!

20130819-175409.jpg

20130819-175448.jpg

20130819-175453.jpg
L’oreal Rouge Caresse Lipstick in ‘Aphrodite Scarlet’ – £7.99

Web it comes to eyeshadows, for quite some time, I remember L’oreal being behind the other brands because they never had anything really worth me ruining.. May be a few mediocre eyeshadow palettes. Then they bought out these bad boys.. Colour Infallible eyeshadows! There are a tonne of nice colours to choose from so to choose one was hard for me! The big deal about these is that they’re actually a pressed pigment which come with a stopper on the top to keep the pigment from spilling everywhere.. Something which all pigments do! They are pigmented, easy to use and cheap & cheerful!

20130819-175511.jpg

20130819-175557.jpg
L’oreal Colour Infallible Eyeshadow in ‘Flashback Silver (15) – £6.99

FYI.. Feel Unique (free worldwide shipping), Superdrug and Boots all have offers on L’oreal products at the moment!

This months Glossy Box has arrived and the theme is High Flyers! All products are under 100ml so perfect for flying and they’re all things to give yourself a super quick pep when you’re away and don’t have time for age long beauty treatments!

Océane Make up Remover Pen

This is basically what every woman thinks about wanting but it hasn’t been invented until NOW! This is a makeup remover pen which basically has liquid inside the pen and you can use the nib to remove makeup precisely! It comes with 3 extra nibs and it really helped remove those mistakes that happen with eyeshadows, liners and lipsticks!

Tresemme 60 second treatment shot
I haven’t yet tried this because its not something which appealed to me straight away if I’m honest! I don’t usually use stuff like this is in my hair, simply because I don’t feel I need it! However, this is supposed to make your hair feel silky smooth after using and because it’s 60 second, it’s quick!

Emite Makeup Eye lash Curler
I was so surprised to see an eyelash curler in my Glossy Box this month! It even comes with three changeable rubber pads! It feels really sturdy because the mechanism is stiff and the actual curler area is super long so will grab every eye lash and it gives lashes a really right curl!

Jelly Pong Pong 2-in-1 eyeliner & shadow
When I saw this, I was so happy! Every Jelly Pong Pong item I receive is always really nice! I love this one too! I like the fact that you can use this as an eye shadow and eye liner! This really does create a smooth and even line and when used as an eye shadow, it’s blend able. However, it’s not that easy to smudge and I found that it creased after some time! I think with a good primer and a shadow on the top, it’ll last!

Urban Veda Purifying Day Cream
I’ve saved the best until last! I absolutely love this day cream! It has a matte finish, feels cold after applying and is so lightweight! Also, it’s so inexpensive that I’m definitely going to purchase it!

I really liked this month’s Glossy Box! There were 4 full sized products in here and more importantly a product which I am so in love with that I’ve recommended it to two other people already and they’ll be purchasing it too! All the products were really nice to use and fit in the ‘High Flyers’ theme really well!

GlossyBox is £10 a month (£2.95 p&p)
