Pencil haul!


I’ve been loving pencils lately because the hot weather means that creamy products just aren’t cutting it! They just tend to crease and rub off with all the sweatiness happening on my face!

*EEK.. No concealer or mascara!

L’oreal Super Liner Perfect Slim: £6.99
The first item isn’t even a pencil at all, rather a felt tip! But this eye liner is amazing! I saw an advert on YouTube with this and instantly knew I wanted it because I love gel eyeliner but sometimes I want something more stark in colour and liquid liner is sometimes too flakey and glossy! This is the perfect go between! It lasts for ages, is super black and you can create all different width lines! It’s super easy to use so if you’re a beginner to lining eyes, this one is great!

Bourjois Metallise in 54: £4.99
This eyeliner jumped out at me because of the colour! I recently saw Pixiwoo use some greens and blues in the tutorial on their YouTube and I really wanted a nice blue! Not only did I love the colour of this, I love the texture! It’s a beautiful metallic light blue shade that is as creamy as can be! I would probably smudge this with some darker eyeshadow to make it more smokey but just look how it makes your eyes pop!

Rimmel 1000 Kisses: £2.99
I wanted a few lip liners because I was getting bored of lipstick and saw these from Rimmel! The lighter colour is ‘Tiramisu’ and the darker ‘Wine’. I love the staying power of these and they glide on too! They can be a bit hard to get even on the lips though as you can see with the darker shade but they look fantastic and there are some great shades to choose from!

My top 5 lipsticks to wear with a tan


20130712-233427.jpg

When it comes to lipsticks, I think it’s safe to say that I think I have quite a good collection! But one thing I struggle with is finding a perfect nude when I’m tanned!!

Much like my other pasty friends out there, I fake tan and this year was no exception! I actually fake tanned so much this year, I don’t remember what my real colour is anymore.. Until I look behind my ear.. Which I don’t do often! It’s quite hard to find a nude lipstick which is flattering when you’re tanned, be that fake tanned or sun worshipped.

So here’s a list of my 5 top tan lipsticks!

The first one is a cheap and cheerful nude colour from Rimmel! This shade is called ‘Nude Delight’ and is the perfect peachy nude! It suits almost everyone in my opinion! If you’re uber fair and tanned, it adds a gorgeous hint of peach whilst not disturbing your colouring and if you have a deep tan, because its not bright peach, it doesn’t look like ‘concealer lips’.

** Rimmel Nude Delight £6.29

The next shade is another good ‘un from Rimmel! This time from the Kate Moss for Rimmel line in the shade 03 (it has no name). This nude is a lot more brown toned and so is perfect of you’re going for a heavy makeup look whilst tanned and want to wear a nude colour! If you have darker skin or a deeper tan, this colour will look super without drawing the attention away from your make up.

** Rimmel Kate 03 £5.49

This colour is the perfect nude in my opinion and is my current favourite! It looks quite pink in the images (but that’s because my lips had become quite red from removing the lipstick from the previous swatches). This lovely nude colour is a lustre finish from MAC in the shade ‘Shy Girl’. The lustre finish means its not super pigmented but has a nice sheer and glossy finish. It looks lovely because it looks like your natural lip colour and its moisturising too! Btw.. MAC lipstick prices have gone up again!

** MAC Shy Girl (lustre) £15

This next one is for those of you who have darker lips or a darker tan and want to add more colour! Because its pink and has purple undertones, it’ll look great with a tan! This lipstick is from Shu Uemura and is in the shade ‘BG 955’. It’s really pigmented and is very moisturising too! I love this colour and this is the lipstick I go to when I want to add a quick flash of colour!

** Shu Uemura BG955 £19

The next one is my most favourite lipstick of all time! And this is the only lipstick in my life so far that I will probably finish and repurchase! This colour.. It makes me angry how perfect it is because I feel like I’ve wasted my time with all the other lipsticks! Estée Lauder ‘Crystal Baby’ came into my life and made it worth living! Whether you have a tan.. Be that a fair tan or deepest of deep tan, this colour is the perfect glossy pinky, peachy, browny nude! It smells divine and the packaging is lovely too! I can’t say enough good things about this. I promise you that if you get this, you won’t regret this high end purchase!
