KIKO make up haul


20130908-142538.jpg

Continuing on with my haul from the last blog post, here are the items I bought from KIKO!

The first items I picked up, were these creamy lipgloss sticks. Very similar to the chubby sticks by way of the packaging and product inside too! I feel as though these last a little longer though. They are glossy and are quite sheer too (which is my favourite combination). I chose 3 colours!

** KIKO Creamy Lipgloss in 110: £6.50

** KIKO pH lip enhancer in 100: £6.50

These individual eyeshadows also caught my eye after I knocked a few over with my bag in the store! I chose colours that I could wear alone and wouldn’t have to pair up with anything else! The are super creamy and pigmented. They all have a sheen or glitter in them but its not chunky and they don’t have a tonne of fallout. These remind me of MAC eyeshadows with the same type of quality.

** KIKO eyeshadows in shades (left to right): 166, 116, 133, 148 – £2.90 each

I then saw these lipsticks and the colours caught my eye! I’ve been trying to use lip products more because I feel like changing your lips can change your whole face instantly! When I saw these colours, I knew they’d be perfect for slamming in my handbag and topping up on the go! They’re lovely pink and brown nudes (can you tell which colours I like?). Although they’re sheer, they’re glossy and have a lovely gold flex running through! They’re semi- sheer and really moisturising with a comfortable application!

20130909-110351.jpg
** KIKO smart lipsticks in shades: 903, 917 – £1.90 each

I’m a sucker for eyeshadow palettes! More so, for KIKO eyeshadow palettes which I own a few of already! I remember seeing these on their website and loving the colours but when I actually tried them in store, I was literally left with my mouth hanging wide open! They are the creamiest and softest eyeshadows in the world! I have never felt such strongly pigmented and rich colours in any product before! They blend so well and look so vibrant it’s crazy! I am definitely going to get the other palettes!

20130908-142017.jpg

20130908-142026.jpg
** KIKO colour impact eyeshadow palette in ‘Bright Night Lights 03’ – £16.90

When I saw this nail varnish, I was intrigued about how it would look. Whilst I was checking out, I saw this sitting there for £1 and grabbed it! The colour is a beautiful pastel blue with a slight purple tinge. The ‘sugar mat’, isn’t so interesting! It’s really gritty and after having it on for only a few minutes, I knew it wasn’t practical! It’s fairly sharp and feels like super hard sandpaper. Moreover, it looks like your nail varnish has major air bubbling going on, so I’m not too crazy about this but, I’ll hold on to it for the next type I’m carving wooden sculptures!

** KIKO Sugar Mat nail lacquer in ‘635 Wisteria’ – £1

Inglot make up haul


20130908-140852.jpg

Can you believe, I’ve been shopping again? I went into London recently and saw some lovely little make up bits that I had to grab! Take a look at today’s post where I show you what I got at Inglot!

I popped into Inglot because they had a sale on, on their lip, eyebrow and concealer palettes.. 50% off! I chose their 5 piece freedom system palette and decided to choose only lipsticks as I didn’t really need any other stuff (not that I need more lipsticks, though). These ended up being so creamy and pigmented! They look amazing and feel good too! I’ve tried an actual lipstick from Inglot before and it’s one of my favourites!

20130904-095154.jpg
**Inglot AMC 5 roundfreedom palette: £3.50
Lipstick refills in shades (left to right): 29, 56, 26, 03, 62- £1.75 each

I then picked up another lip product by way of the lip paint! This is an uber glossy and moisturising lip stick kind of pot! The colour is the perfect nude for me which adds colour and doesn’t drain me out.

20130904-095649.jpg

20130909-104153.jpg** Inglot lip paint in shade 63: £10

The last few things that I got were nail varnishes! I really wanted some more of the o2m nail varnishes in nude colours that I could always wear! I chose brown and pink toned nudes and they ended up being really nice! I think I’ll enjoy them more in winter though because they don’t seem to look very good with tanned hands.. I have the pink shade (680) on right now.

20130904-095951.jpg
**Inglot. o2M nail paints in shade: 677, 680- £11.00 each

For all the products I’ve mentioned, you can visit their website here. Their p&p is a little pricey and their swatch colours online are a little off though, so I’d suggest visiting the store for a better experience!

Top 5 Revlon products


When it comes to drugstore brands, there is one that that sticks out more than my others for having the best range of all types of products. Revlon excels in foundation (colour stay), lips (butters &lipsticks) and even eyes (grow luscious mascara). It seems as though everything they make, is a best seller.. I agree!

When it comes to lips, their lip butters are incredible! They are pigmented but sheer and they are super moisturising. Because they’re easy to glide on, you can stick these in your handbag and top up on the go. 2 of my favourite shades are the ones below:

20130821-195209.jpg

20130821-195329.jpg20130821-195214.jpg

20130821-195333.jpg

I’m also crazy about Revlon lipsticks! If you’re looking for MAC lipsticks but don’t want to pay as much for them, Revlon do some great ones and in tonnes of shades! You can often find dupes for colours and finishes that MAC have. This pink lipstick is my absolute fave! I love this colour which is a soft pink that looks really nice and neutral. I love building it up and even rubbing it in for less colour on those days where you want to wear little makeup. It’s super creamy and moisturising. It also wears off beautifully leaving a stain, rather than a scummy white like like some lipsticks do! ** beware.. If you have a moustache, this lipstick will for sure make it look prominent (a lesson learnt for me the hard way).

20130821-195736.jpg

20130821-195747.jpg

These eyelashes believe it or not, were the first ever eyelashes I bought! I had worn false eyelashes before, after receiving them in monthly beauty boxes but I had never gone out to look for them until I found these! They are the best lashes I’ve ever tried! There are 4 in a pack and they’re well-priced. I love how natural they look on, how the end wings off but, not dramatically and I also like the thin band. I tried these lashes on many people and they all said they loved the way their lashes looked. If you wear fake eyelashes quite a lot, these are definitely super comfortable!

20130821-200051.jpg

20130821-200101.jpg
* Here’s me wearing the lashes recently

Last but by no means least, a favourite product which I’m sure a tonne of people would agree with me on.. Nail varnishes! Revlon are renowned for their wide range of colours and they also have some good varieties too such as their ‘Top Speed’ and ‘Colourstay’ lines. I really like this pink colour shown below. The pink shade just screams summer! It’s one of those shades that adds a splash if colour without being too neon or daring. It’s a lovely coral pink shade. The consistency is so thick and gel like, that one coat usually does the job for me. It really does dry in no time and I’ve noticed how glossy it looks too!

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!

KIKO, Maybelline and Essie Make Up haul!


20130711-232529.jpg

I know I’m a little late with my daily blog posts but hopefully, I’ve managed to adjust my routine what with fasting and everything.. So here goes my first post!!

I recently went to Westfield and couldn’t help but stop off at one of my new favourite make up stores: KIKO! They have amazing quality products and for really good value so I couldn’t resist some of their goodies! Fortunately for me, all of the stuff I liked was on offer in their sale section!

The first thing that caught my eye was this ‘Wet and Dry eyeshadow palette in Holi Vibrations’. I bought a few other palettes from this collection which I hauled in a previous blog post and I love them! These colours are perfect for summer! They’re bright but not too bright and the shimmer will look gorgeous in summer along with those lovely pastel colours! They have fall out but nothing major so HAPPY DAYS!

20130711-232614.jpg

20130711-232647.jpg

20130711-232825.jpg
Wet and Dry eyeshadow palette in Holi Vibrations £8.40

Having tried KIKO’s eye products only, I had a little dabble with these gorgeous blushes they have to offer! I had to get 2 because I could choose! They had a few to choose from but I chose the colours that would suit me beat! I like a subtle blush at the moment (a far cry from my previous look) and these have a beautiful finish.. The beige/gold colour on the end is shimmery so creates a lovely highlighted look!

20130711-232844.jpg

20130711-232908.jpg
Colour Explosion multi tone blush in Wild Sienna 01 £5.90

20130711-232918.jpg

20130711-232925.jpg
Colour explosion multi tone blush in Active Mauve 03 £5.90

20130711-233410.jpg

And just as I was leaving the store, these grabbed my attention! When I tested them on my hand, I knew I’d use these constantly! This lovely lips and cheeks product has a lovely texture and is really well pigmented! They haven’t over-done the pigment because its to be used on the cheek too- I suppose they want their consumers to not look like clowns! I love the texture, the smell (like vanilla!). These completely remind me of Sleek Pout Polishes but are so much better.. In my opinion!

20130711-233425.jpg

Then I made a cheeky stop to Boots and picked up some non-essential essentials ;)

Beauty Haul!


The title says it all! There’s a lot. So lets get cracking!

Sally Hanson Miracle Nail Thickener

So this I got, because my nails are EXTREMELY BRITTLE! I’m talking about.. Shampooing my hair and my nail will break off mid-nail! It’s awful! I couldn’t deal with the pain any more and I went to Superdrug in a huff and with my finger in a band aid to hide the shame! Lol! When I saw this I thought it looked brilliant! I’ve used Sally Hanson nail polish before for ridge filling before a good manicure! This says to test it for a month and I did so.. The results weren’t AMAZING and if I’m honest very hard to tell! However, I do feel as though my nails are slightly stronger. They still flake a bit as shown in the image however, generally, they haven’t broken in around a week or two so I’ll keep using it! For the price I paid for it, I’ll be patient!

20121010-180927.jpg
Sally Hanson Miracle Nail Thickener £9.69

Rimmel London I HEART lasting finish nail varnish in double decker red

The colour of this polish is FANTASTIC! I’ve been into reds a lot this month and I’m LOVING this colour! It’s a complete dupe of a colour I had manicured on me around a month ago! The colour was OPI- thrill of brazil and I think this is exactly the same! The finish is really glossy and it looks beautiful for any time of the year! However, although the polish is shiny, it doesn’t last very long at all! The polish chips in no time, even with a base and top coat to protect it :( for the price though, it’s brilliant!

20121010-182203.jpg
Rimmel I HEART lasting finish nail varnish in Double Decker Red £2.99

Ruby Hammer Recommends Beauty On The Go

Some of you may have seen my male up collection where I have TONNES of Ruby hammer recommends products! Ruby Hammer is a make up artist who made her own brand and I LOVE her products! The pigmentation and price are perfect! This palette is definitely perfect for on the go and is such a good size that I think I might take it to France on the weekend! There’s a wide range of eye shadow colours and some lovely coloured lip glosses with a handy mirror too! I would however, like some matte colours because they were all shimmery and I would probably like Ruby Hammer to be available more easily! I don’t see it in every Debenhams store, which isn’t very handy! Plus, I got it at an AMAZING price!

20121010-181117.jpg

20121010-181121.jpg
Ruby Hammer Recommends Beauty On The Go £4.20

Ruby Hammer Recommends the Professional Beauty Case

This is AMAZING! I not only love the packaging and think the make up train is lovely but the make up inside is gorgeous! I didn’t expect to receive what I did when I ordered online! The train was on sale on the Debenhams site so thought I’d pick it up because I liked the storage solution and obviously I like the make up! The box surprised me completely! The box consists eye shadows, lipstics, lip glosses, nail varnishes, blushes, palettes and a whole manicure and pedicure kit! Everything a girl needs in the morning! The products are lovely and the presentation is too! Lovely!

YSL pure rouge shine in Tuxedo Pink 31

This lipstick was my splurge of the month and I’m not disappointed! It’s the perfect colour to spruce up any outfit and I think it would flatter you, no matter what your skin tone! The lipstick is also long lasting and the colour can be built up or sheer! But the shine of the lipstick is perfect! A good dupe is Mac Impassioned (not as much of a shine)

20121010-180922.jpg
YSL pure rouge shine in Tuxedo Pink 31 £23.50

Sleek Shangri- La palettes in Supreme and Respect

These eye shadow palettes are some of my about items from Sleek Make Up! I think the pigmentation of the eye shadows and the colours are fantastic! I love the way they created two! Choose the respect palette is more warmer tones whilst the supreme palette is blue toned! There are a variety of colours to chit any look you want to go for! I got both because I couldn’t choose! I might be using some of the colours as blushes if I’m not brave enough to wear them on my eyes.. Multi-tasking.. WOOPEEE!!

Clothing haul!


I’ve been going shopping CRAZY recently and have picked up a few things that I feel I’ll be able to keep forever with me even when I move to Birmingham!

I went to TK Maxx and found nothing that I liked and again with Dorothy Perkins, felt the same way! The clothes hall section will start from River Island as I found some lovely pieces there today!! I don’t usually shop in the sale rails but today I think I found some lovely bits!!!

Lets begin!

The first thing I noticed was this AMAZING dress! I love the beading on it an the cut is FANTASTIC! I love intricate beading and the style of this dress is beautiful! The colours are y favourite and I loved it as soon as I saw it!

20121005-184351.jpg
I love the dangling detail and the cut at the bottom of the dress!

20121005-184356.jpg
This dress was £80 originally but £30 in the clearance sale in a size 8

The next top is a crop top that caught my eye! To be honest, I actually got this TK wore to bed because I think it’s a lovely material and I like it for the hotter nights! I get BOILING hot at night!

20121005-184439.jpg
I love the studded detailing on the shoulders too!

20121005-184446.jpg
This crop top was £7 in the sale and I think it was originally around £15 in a size 6

The next piece is a speckled too in one of my favourite colours at the moment! I think it looks great with any get up and to be honest, ill be tucking it into a maxi skirt for a pop of colour!

20121005-184519.jpg
I love the speckled detailing and deep wine colour!

20121005-184528.jpg
I got this top for £5 and think it was originally around £15 in a size 6

The next thing is a blazer style jumper which wasn’t in the sale section but I love it! The jumper is a knit material but has 3/4 sleeves in a wet look! The material is super comfy and although not warm, adds a touch of something different to the outfit!

20121005-184535.jpg
The sleeves are a wet look but not a stiff leather.. PERFECT!

20121005-184541.jpg
The blazer was £35 in a size 10

The next buy is my best pick of the bunch! I’ve been looking for a pair of winter boots for a while and when I saw these I HAD to grab them! They were lying in the shelf all by themselves so I picked them up! They are a lovely mid heel boot in a very simple leather! They are SUPER COMFY!

20121005-184547.jpg
I love the shape of them at the front and the ankle length of the boots makes them very functional!

20121005-184556.jpg
These boots were £7.50!!!!!!!!!! Reduced from £35 and they’re in a size 5.

Return of the Haul!


I’m baaaaaaack!!

I know I promised you guys a blog post on Saturday but I got REEEEAL busy so I’ll make up for it my lovelies!!!

With the end of the month near, I decided to do a little bit of shopping and picked up some.. Expensive purchases! I went to a flash place so the stuff I got was extortionately priced!

I’m really happy with the things I got! They’re what I’ve been wanting for a while so I’m glad I got them!!

The first thing I had on my agenda was.. RAY BAN’s! Now I’m not a fan of paying anything over £10 for a pair of shades but the cheap ones I get break do easily! With sunglasses I’ve learnt, paying more helps! I went to Westfield in Shepherds Bush and they have a small stall for Sunglasses Hut where we were served by a really helpful guy! He was mega helpful with all the sunglasses that I liked and what looked good! I’d wanted the Wayfarers for a while do decided to get the folding ones cause they’re so cool!

20120923-191618.jpg

20120923-191623.jpg
Ray Ban Wayfarers £140

If you’re looking for an inexpensive pair, Urban Outfitters have a sale on their sunglasses and I got this pair similar to the Ray Bans for £10!

20120923-191438.jpg
Urban Outfitters £10

We then popped into boots and I forgot how many brands Boots actually have! The Boots stores in my area are small! I picked up the Smashbox Tinted Moisturiser because I loved the coverage amount! My skin has been really good (Alhumdolilah), even though I’ve treated it really bad! I haven’t been putting on face cream or taking off my make up properly! I know.. I’m a fool! But this stuff looks amazing! I got the colour light cause it was a PERFECT match! It looked like my skin!

20120923-191634.jpg
Smashbox tinted moisturiser in Light £19.50

I then bumped into the Yves Saint Laurent stand and just knew.. I needed a Rouge Volupte lipstick! I’m not the biggest fan of lipsticks but I had tried these a few times, tested them and put them back because of the price! This lipstick is AMAZING! The pigmentation is INCREDIBLE and it’s so moisturising! The only thing I would say is because its so creamy, it gets stuck in the cracks in your lips so ensure you exfoliate your lips before hand!

20120923-191424.jpg
YSL Rouge Volumpte lipstick in 1 nude beige £23

Next purchase was a whim! I saw a jewellery stand, loved the rings and got one! They’re we’re moderately priced because they had a 20% off sale but I think she should have been cheaper. I loved this trio set! It has 3 bands.. 1 gold, 1 rose gold and 1 silver which I think look beautiful together! The colours are fantastic and the gems in the band go all the way round! They look FANTASTIC! I can’t wait to do a manicure with them!

20120923-191806.jpg
David Deyong £100 (RRP (124.99)

Then I saw a chocolate stand! Omg.. She had macarons! I HAD to grab them! They looked amazing and I loved the colours so I grabbed a box of 6! I know they’re expensive but I loved one of the caramel truffles she handed over so I hope the macarons match!

20120923-191429.jpg
La Maison du Chocolat macarons £10.50

I then went to Kurt Geiger and saw so many shoes that I fell in love with! I decided to go against a BEAUTIFUL pair of shiny peep tie eels which had gorgeous studding! I then saw these star bracelets and thought they looked amazing and they looked like a really good size! I often buy jewellery if it looks as though it will fit my abnormally small wrists and fingers!

20120923-191434.jpg
Kurt Geiger bracelets £15/ £20
