Top 5 MAC products


20130816-192314.jpg

I’ve decided to show you a series of blog posts all about my ‘top five’ items from a specific brand! And what better brand to kick off than MAC?

20130816-192339.jpg

In my beautiful Z Palette I house the only MAC eye shadow I have and it’s my all time favourite eye shadow! I saw Cranberry from MAC in a video by FleurDeForce on YouTube and fell in love with it! I have brown/green eyes so I knew that this colour would look good.. And I was right! Definitely a strong wedding day eyeshadow choice for me! Cranberry is exactly that.. A red cranberry colour (a deep red) and it has a red glitter flex running through it! Although its a cold colour, I find myself reaching towards it every time I want a pop of colour! It’s not too bold so looks fairly natural (as far as reds go). If you have red eyes, this will enhance them and similarly I find that when my skin is looking dull, it makes me look more tired, so be aware! I love how strongly pigmented and creamy it is!

Cranberry by MAC – £10

20130816-193227.jpg
My next favourite has to be Pink Swoon blusher by MAC. If I could choose only one product to live with, it would be blusher and this one is perfect! I rave about Pink Swoon in so many blog posts because of its versatility and how beautiful it looks on! No matter what your skin tone, this blush will look perfect on you! It looks bright in the pan but its actually sheer so you can wear it lightly or build it up and because it’s so creamy and blend able, it looks natural! I love this blusher! It also looks super nice as an eyeshadow and I like using clear lip balm and then dabbing this on top.

Pink Swoon blusher by MAC – £18

20130816-194020.jpg

20130816-193503.jpg
Next stop.. Studio Fix badass powder! Again, a love of mine! I think the thing I love most about this is the amazing colour match this powder has to my skin! I picked this up from Madrid at the airport and the lady matched me up to C4.5 and she hit the nail on the head! Not only is the coverage of this powder just like that of a medium coverage foundation, but the texture, blend-ability and pigmentation is perfectly natural! It stays put all day and is perfect for touching up!

20130816-193510.jpg
Studio Fix powder in C4.5 by MAC – £24.50

20130816-194029.jpg

20130816-193752.jpg
Just like I rave about Pink Swoon, I rave about Cosmo lipstick by MAC! It’s a beautiful nude, rose, pinky brown shade! It’s so hard to explain but I think the cliche ‘my lips but better’ really comes into play here! It looks super natural but the formula is moisturising and it’s super pigmented! It lasts really well on the lips too and even wears off beautifully! I can’t say enough good things about this stuff!

20130816-193756.jpg
Cosmo lipstick (amplified) by MAC – £15

20130816-194035.jpg
OBVIOUSLY, MAC is really well known for their makeup tools as well and my favourite one of them all is the 224 brush! This was a 6-month-ago purchase for me and I’m smitten! The brush is perfect for blending in the crease because of its tampered domed shape! Not only does it work well on the eyes, you can contour, conceal and highlight with this brush too because its that perfect universal size! I like it better than the 217 which I don’t use half as much although, people talk more about that! The 224 is just too versatile for me to ignore!

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!

Accessory Haul!


Yesterday I done a blog post where I showed you my new Rebecca Minkoff purple mini M.A.C, but not everyone can afford such an expensive bag! So here’s an alternative I found!

I got this bag because of the GORGEOUS colour! When I saw the Rebecca Minkoff bag and its size, I knew I wanted a slightly larger size so I could use it for travel and this bag is perfect!

I got this from WWW.JUSTFAB.COM and! You have to register and fill in a profile which is so tedious but you get your first product for £17.50! And because this bag was so cheap I didn’t mind! It’s massive and I love it!

KIKO Cosmetics haul/ review


20130407-124150.jpg

On the way back to my car when I went shopping on Saturday in Westfield White City, London, I saw a shop which had an amazing eye shadow palette right at the door! It was called KIKO! The shop looked like a softer and less edgier version of Inglot or MAC so I went in to take a closer look the shop and I was really impressed!

I think this shop originates from Milan, Italy and I was so impressed by the price and products, I picked up a few items which I am so happy with!

This eye shadow palette was the first thing I saw! The colours are beautiful and I love the way you can use them wet too as they are designed for that! The pinks are perfect for the spring/summer months! They had a neutral and darker palette too but I loved the versatility of this once. I could use the colours for face highlighters, blush, eye brows as well as eye shadow! They are really well pigmented and the packaging is super cute!

20130407-123925.jpg

The next item I was were these eye liners which were only £3.90 each! That’s less than drug store prices! I had to pick up a few! I love the purple colour which has a purple/ pink glitter and the green looks really nice and subtle! The nib is a felt tip applicator and is so easy to use!

20130407-124030.jpg

20130407-124035.jpg

20130407-124039.jpg

When I was paying at the till, I spotted this highlighter duo and when I swatched it on my hand, it was so creamy and pigmented! I know I’ll use this a lot for highlighting my brows and eyes on summer days so the light can show off the beautiful shimmer of the highlighter!

20130407-124122.jpg

20130407-124128.jpg

These four items came in at £31.60! Bargain!

HUGE MAKE UP HAUL!!!


Ok.. So I’m back!! I was MIA for a whole month because of wedding preparations but unfortunately, we had to cancel the wedding due to some personal issues. We’ll be rescheduling the wedding for another date now.. But that means I’m lean, mean and ready to be a blogging machine! I had done quite a bit of shopping for wedding make up and stumbled upon some great deals during the winter sales! I’ve learnt to buy in bulk is cheaper and so I’ve got some good bargains! Thank God for Christmas sales!

As some of you may know, I’m a big fan of Ruby Hammer Recommends products! I noticed these lip glosses whilst in store but never picked them up! When I saw them online, I just knew I wanted them! They have a reasonable colour pay off but not spectacular. What I like the most is the vast colour range in the pack as well as the consistency which is like water.. Not sticky one bit!

20130115-175158.jpg

20130115-175337.jpg

20130115-175322.jpg
* Ruby Hammer Recommends lip barrel £8 £4

The next is this lipgloss set of 12! It’s by a brand I’ve never tried before called Miss Cole! Also sold at Debenhams! I got these because of the double ended wand which makes it easier to travel with more shades! These glosses have a reasonable pigmentation (not as good as the Ruby Hammer set), and has a good colour range too!

20130115-175733.jpg

20130115-175740.jpg

20130115-175752.jpg
* Miss Cole Passport to a perfect pout set £12 £8.40

Can you see a pattern yet..? It’s about to get worse! MORE LIP GLOSSES! These ones I got from ASOS in the sale! I’ve been eyeing these from quite some time as I’ve never tried anything from Stila and these looked perfect! There’s a set of 8 lip glazes in this set! The pigmentation is lovely and as the name suggests its a glaze and not too sticky like a gloss would be!

20130115-180254.jpg

20130115-180306.jpg
* One downside is the amount of product you get in the packaging. It took about 40 twists to get the lip glaze to reach the brush applicator as shown in the image above.

20130115-180311.jpg
* Stila Lip Glaze set £18.50 £12.50

The next thing enticed me by the name and I’m glad I got it because its the closest thing to MAC lip glosses that I could find! This set of three lip glosses by Bev Ridge called ‘Distracted by shiny things’ is a set of lip glosses which has amazing pigmentation! I love all three colours and the shimmers are just perfect! Plus.. Look at the lovely packaging! Don’t mind if I do!

20130115-181223.jpg

20130115-181230.jpg

20130115-181239.jpg
* Bev Ridge Distracted by shiny things trio £10 £7

The last lip glosses are from the latest MAC collection! The first time I’ve ever bought lip glosses by MAC and I know now I’ve been missing out! These were the original lip glosses that got me hooked into luscious shiny lips! This set of 4 has amazing pigmentation and stays on for so long! They’re comfortable to wear, smell good and I especially love all four colours in this set!

20130115-181628.jpg

20130115-181635.jpg
* MAC guilty pleasures 4 cocktail coral lip gloss £25

This Betty Jackson Black eye shadow palette had me from the word GO! I love all five colours and the pigmentation of all the colours in this palette! The packaging is sleek and the colours are so creamy! Although they’re all shimmer, I prefer shimmery colours over matte at the moment and so it isn’t a big deal to me at all!

20130115-182012.jpg

20130115-182021.jpg
* Betty Jackson Black pressed eye shadow palette £14 £9.80

The very last thing is this Corrector by Bobbi Brown! This is so raved about its crazy and I have to say, I wasted my money! The corrector doesn’t apply easily with a brush and you have to use your fingers to warm up the otherwise, hard product! It doesn’t match my skin well and doesn’t actually correct my discolouration. Also, when I asked the lady at the Bobbi Brown counter in Selfridges London that I wanted to be colour matched, she had no idea what colour was good for me and didn’t have the colour in stock when I eventually matched myself. She couldn’t speak English either :S
