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..

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!

20130904-102123.jpg

20130904-102132.jpg

20130904-102341.jpg
** KIKO Creamy Lipgloss in 102: £6.50

20130904-102349.jpg
** KIKO Creamy Lipgloss in 110: £6.50

20130909-110559.jpg
** 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.

20130904-102811.jpg
** 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!

20130908-142254.jpg
** KIKO Sugar Mat nail lacquer in ‘635 Wisteria’ – £1

For all the products I bought, visit their website here. They have excellent shipping and have a super clearance section with their previous collections at mega low prices!

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 summer pink lipsticks!


20130721-234537.jpg

Now that we’re in the middle of the summertime, it’s time to pull out our bright colours! Some people aren’t too confident in wearing bright clothing and they love a bright lip so here’s my favourite summertime pinks! Stay tuned in the next few days for my other favourite summer tones!

YSL Rouge Pure Shine Sheer Lipstick in 31 £21
A beautiful sheer hot pink colour that glosses wonderfully. Makes your lips look juicy and plumper

20130721-232240.jpg

20130721-232246.jpg

Becca Beach Tint in Watermelon £20
A matte deep pink colour that looks lovely on any skin tone. Fairly natural but makes lips look plumper and really immaculate

20130721-233538.jpg

20130721-233545.jpg

MAC Impassioned (amplified) £14
A vibrant coral pink with a satin finish. Like a less matte version of YSL lipstick. Really flattering bright pink colour.

20130721-233421.jpg

20130721-233431.jpg

Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie £7.99
A smooth and moisturising pink shade. Although not uber sticky, glitter glistens beautifully in sunlight and is a lovely muted pink without being garish.

20130721-233710.jpg

20130721-233716.jpg

Barry M in TMLP (turn my lips pink)
A melanin changing lip colour that adjusts differently on every person. It’s a moisturising pink colour that goes deeper as you do (when tanning etc) Lasts really well because it’s a stain.

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

20130711-233451.jpg
Glow Touch lips and cheeks in Pleasent Pink Azalea 04 £2.90

20130711-233520.jpg

20130711-233525.jpg
Glow Touch in Icy Watermelon 02 £2.90

20130711-233758.jpg

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

20130711-233816.jpg

20130711-233924.jpg
Maybelline the falsies blackest black mascara £7.99

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!

I’ve been looking for metal rimmed glasses for a while but I hate looking online for glasses because you can’t see what they look like! I saw these from Next and they were £12.50!! BARGAIN! They look the bomb.com!
