A few girls have asked me what other amazing products there are out thought id show you my top 3...for all budgets

1st up and the most expensive is Benefits Brow Zings-£22.50

It contains a pigmented wax for smoothing down unruly brow hairs at one side and a natural shaded powder for setting on the also comes in 3 shades; light, medium and dark.

Next up is HD Brows who have there own eyebrow powder palettes-which are priced at around £20.00

Coming soon blogs...

Reviews coming up next week...

Wake up Rimmel

I blogged a little while ago about how i was going to try Rimmels wake me up foundation..well i didn't get back to you about it as i really wasn't impressed! The shade ranges run very orange and it looks more sticky/shiny than glowy. Powder don't sit very well on top of it and the coverage was slightly patchy.
I love Rimmels lasting finish in shade 200 soft beige so got wake me up in the same shade,but it was orange toned in comparison

Healthy mix in shade 53-Rimmel lasting finish in shade soft beige-wake me up in soft beige

As I'm of fair skin/hair and i do prefer more yellow/neutral toned foundations,so brunettes may like the shades,feel free to leave me a comment below <3

Pastel me perfect

Pastel shades seem to be on every catwalk at the its no surprise that makeup companies are following suit.  Although i am no huge fan of pastel lip shades..i do love it on eyes and especially nails!
When in superdrug emptying out my bank account i always pick up a few cheapy MUA products ( at £1 each its rude not too-rite?) So i was excited to hear they have an online website..i will hook you up below

After a visit to the page..these beauty's arrived yesterday

They have a love hearts range which has lovely shades in both lip tints and nail polishes

this is two coats of the MUA  lavender, purple an yellow

The eyeshadow palette is £4.00 and isn't bad quality for the price..there very subtle and shimmery but are great for a pale pastel look.
Happy bargain shopping girls

Love is in the air...

Was hoping to get this up before Valentines Day but was a busy "eyebrow shaping" bee.
I am a huge lover of red and pink lipstick, Macs ruby woo being my fav!
But today i thot id do my favourite lipsticks from mac that ive aquired-so far ;)

1st up-Cyndi from the Viva Glam range, which honestly seems to suit everyone!
Bad news is that it was a limted edition one a few years back...
good news-there is many many dupes out there!

Next we have my latest buy and new fav pink..Macs impassioned..
it is a punchy bright summery pink

it was used on this model in this shoot i found

Now we have Macs Lickable..quite similar but its deeper pink on

Next up is Costa Chic...i LOVE this one-its very different from other lipsticks i have..the best way to describe it is an elecric peach,but it still has pink undertones...again its screams summer <3

this picture dosnt really show how bright it actually looks on your lips

its prob closer to this colour

and finally this is Party Line..its a plumy shade but can look deep red on lips,i suppose it would fall in the burgundy shade range

Party line against ruby woo

Well thats my Valentines lipstick favs..
Hope everyone got treated or treated themselves...

P.s Macs lipsticks are priced at £13.50 each-i'll link u up below

Bonjour Bourjois

I love trying out new foundations and was really interested in this foundation when i found out that Holly Willoughby's MUA uses this at the min on shoots! The foundation I'm talking about is Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation...

It comes in 5 shades,all of which are quite neutral based..if anything they lean a bit towards the NC shade range of MAC.
I have quite combination skin but would find it more oily than dry-so i would always have my powder compact with me on a nite out but this ladies eliminates that! I find i don't have to top up during the day and it dries to quite a powder matte finish..leaving it up to us where we want are skin to shine..
Again the little sis was called in to try this on...needless to say she bought it in two shades afterwards..<3

under flash..highlighter added

It really doesn't feel like there's a heavy foundation on your skin but it does truely give a medium/full coverage and it does claim 16hr staying power
And best part it is a pure bargain at a mere £7.99 on eBay! Its also available in Boots,Superdrug etc for around £ careful there is a foundation serum also which i haven't just incase you get confused...

Again this is how i found this foundation for me and those iv tried it on but as we know everyone's skin is different and sometimes likes to play up on us when we change are foundation's..x

Any feedback leave me a comment x
