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 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.

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!

** 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!

** 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!

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!

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

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!

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!

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!

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!

CHRISTIAN DIOR.. I adore


So we’ve all heard of Chanel and MAC of course!

20120827-005142.jpg
I always notice the Dior counter at Debenhams and really wanted to get something from their! They had amazing blush colours and of course, their Amber Diamond highlighter is so widely raved about! I have a real love/ hate with powder highlighters though! I really only use them when I can’t find my MAC lustre drops or when I have no will to live! It mainly because powder doesn’t last that long on my skin.. Although it does absorb my recently over- oily skin! There are some great powder highlighters but they just don’t seem to cut the mustard!

20120827-005133.jpg
I wanted to get something which I knew I would use! I always noticed their powder compact and it felt so soft! In fact.. Every time I went into Debenhams, I would touch their tester and matched myself up to the correct colour too! I caved in today and just went for it! It cost £30.50 but I’m already in love with! I really wanted to test it straight away so I re-done my make up just for the occasion to test it!

20120827-005149.jpg
The powder is so fine! Even though it’s a compact it has a very loose powder feel to it and I absolutely love the result! The lady at the Dior counter said it lasts all day as uses it when she’s at work because it has staying power! She claimed to not have topped hers up and I went at around 4pm after she had been there from 8am! It looked amazing on her skin!

20120827-005157.jpg
I really wanted to give it a good hard test so I actually wore into sleep! With no other make up! Not even foundation to hold it in place and when I woke up, my skin was so smooth, even and I didn’t notice any oiliness on my nose like I usually do! It truly leaves a fantastic finish to the skin and is the most flawless powder I’ve ever come across! I’m glad I didn’t get the Chanel loose powder because although that has great reviews too, I wanted to venture into a new brand!

20120827-010406.jpg
Bad points.. The compact is quite large! I expected it to have some bulk as it is a high end product but I’m not too keen on bulky packaging cluttering up my handbag! I love a decent sized and discreet make up compact in order to keep your touch up a beautiful secret ;)
Another thing is, I only saw 4 shades?? I’m in the shade 001 translucent light! I hope there are more colours though! Darker skin tones need Dior too!!! I suppose because they are transparent colours, they’re quite versatile but I don’t think it’s easy for tanned, olive or mixed race skin tones to choose a shade.

20120827-005833.jpg
I also have a lipstick from Dior in a very rose coloured pink! It looks fantastic on the lips! The colour is quite frost, but applies with such a nice sheen! It makes your lips look super perky and big! I bought this about a year ago but I’m sure they still sell it! It was slightly cheaper than usual at £19 as I got It whilst it was on offer at Beauty Base but I’m quite sure you can get it anywhere!

Overall, I’m really impressed with Christian Dior make up! They are a really good high end brand, are available worldwide and in the UK are easily accessible as I believe they’re available I’m even the smallest of Debenhams stores!

P.S. they have perfumes called Miss Dior which they do in 3 scents! The yellow coloured one is on my to do list!
