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!

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!

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!

Product Smackdown! Too Faced vs. Lancôme


20130220-160159.jpg

I have been looking for a palette I can travel with, for quite some time now! After going to Spain for a day and only carrying hand luggage, I realised that I didn’t have any palettes or sets which had everything I needed for an overnight stay!

20130220-160216.jpg

When I went to the airport (Heathrow and Madrid), I saw a palette by Lancôme which looked fabulous!! However, they had a model of this palette on the display and I was so disappointed because it was tiny!! And was over £50! When I came home, I went straight onto eBay and found it for less than half the price from a UK seller and behold it arrived the very next day.. EXCITED!! The palette is called ‘Absolut Voyage’ and is only available from Airports or online I’ve noticed.

A short time after, I realised I had never purchased anything from BeautyBay.com before, despite being CRAZY about make up so after visiting it, I saw this fantastic ‘Little black book of beauty’ from Too Faced. Having tried a lovely palette from Too Faced recently, I knew this one would be FAB! And also, it was on sale for £27! BeautyBay deliver free worldwide.. BONUS!! The palette looked full of all sorts of goodies which would be perfect for travelling!

After receiving the Lancôme palette, the first thing I noticed was the brilliant size and quality of the packaging! It is full of brushes, make up, pencils, a massive mirror and a sleeve to protect it! It contains:
• 6 eye shadows
• 1 blush
• 1 translucent powder
• 1 concealer
• 1 mascara
• 3 lip colours
• 3 brushes
• 1 eye pencil
• 1 lip pencil
• 1 small powder puff
• 1 built in mirror

You can imagine, the quality of the products are amazing and each eye shadow and everything else is so well pigmented!! I was so pleased with all of the colours included as I would wear them all and it’s versatile for any skin bar, the concealer however, even this could be worn as a highlight for a darker skin tone!

The Two Faced palette arrived in the post and it was a very small packaging as I didn’t realise how small it would be! I love Too Faced packaging because its such a sturdy packaging with beautiful artwork on it! The mascara was loose however, and I was expecting it to be included within the ‘book’. When I opened the palette it contained:
• 1 highlighter
• 1 bronzer
• 2 blushes
• 1 lipgloss
• 12 eye shadows
• 1 mascara

Some of the matte eye shadows were almost transparent and had no pigmentation to them at all however, the rest were fantastic quality! I love the fact that the face products and lip gloss they give is so big and the packaging is tiny, so very easy to carry!

All in all.. I think the Lancôme palette is the one for me! It has everything you need and the size of the palette is the best. The pigmentation of all of the products is lovely and the colours are versatile. The Too Faced palette is lovely to look and the cheek products are a fantastic size! The mirror of the Lancôme palette is far greater and although I love the fact that under theToo Faced palettes’ mirror, the lip gloss is protected, I would rather that the cheek products are covered because they go directly onto skin! For the amount of money you pay.. LANCÔME WINS!! Too Faced KO!

Mini make up haul!


20121210-183621.jpg

I recently found some things I had been looking for, for quite some time that I was saving until winter time! Low and behold.. The mini haul..

The first item I picked up from Superdrug! I noticed how although I hardly touch my brows, this harsh weather and the winds do tend to mess up my brows a lot! So I picked up this clear mascara from Collection 2000 which was £1.99! I tested it out and it lasted fantastically and my brows never moved an inch!

I then saw the Maybelline gel eye liner lying there all by itself so grabbed it! It’s in the colour ‘ultra violet’ and is a lovely deep purple colour! I love these gel eye liners because they’re affordable, last ages and look fantastic! I’m so glad I finally got hold of the purple because I’ve been wanting it for a while! It also comes with a lovely brush which I find easy to use.

The next item I got on a whim, was this ‘Sleek blush by 3’ palette! It consists of three shades of blushes that you can use lightly, heavily or even blend to create a new shade! I love it! I mentioned in a few posts that I’m loving purple shades at the moment so when I saw this blush which had deep plums as well as a beautiful pop of bright pink, I grabbed it! It’s excellent value for money too!

I then saw Zoella from Zoella280390 talk about her love of MAC studio sculpt foundation! I’ve been looking for. Good foundation for quite some time now and as soon as I tried this, fell in love with it! I got the shade NC25 which is a perfect colour match for me but I do have to mix NW25 of my studio fix to match the colour perfectly! Unlike the MatchMaster foundation, the coverage is heavy and not build able. It cannot be sheered down either but for what it does, it’s fantastic and lasts all day! I picked mind up from eBay but this retails for £25.

The last item is my favourite and comes in the form of MAC again! After I saw so much rave about this eye shadow I had to get it when I saw a sale on! I had a voucher for Debenhams and they also had a sale on so got this MAC eyeshadow for £3! Cranberry is exactly the colour I’ve been looking for! As someone with green/brown eyes, I thought this would be a perfect colour to make my eyes pop! Perhaps a perfect colour for my wedding day.. Hmmmmmm..
