1 comment

L-R: MAC RiRi Woo - £15.50, MAC Cosmetics // L'oreal Color Riche Collection Exclusive Pure Reds in Blake's Red, £6.99 - Boots // Revlon Colorstay Moisture Lipstain in New York Scene, £7.99 - Boots // Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick in Hollywood Red, £6.99 - Boots // Lime Crime Velvetine in Red Velvet, £13.50 - Cocktailcosmetics.co.uk 

For me, nothing is more glamorous than a red lip and I have many of them as you will see in the below photo, I was going to do a "My Red Lipstick Collection &  Swatches" post because I'm sure everyone says this but, they're all different shades of red, I swear. That post would have taken me more than a few hours to picture, swatch, write up and edit though so I'll leave that one for another day and today I will go through my favourite reds with you!

1 comment

 Real Techniques Nic's Picks Brush Set, £29.99 - Boots (Nic's picks is limited edition and no longer available on the Real Techniques site, however definitely check your local drugstore as I got mine from there 3 weeks ago and saw some still available last week)

Everyone. their mum and their dog knows about Real Techniques brushes.  Created by Sam & Nic Chapman of Pixiwoo these brushes were created with high quality taklon bristles, a cruelty free material, and amazing quality at a lower, drugstore price point. 

Yes, my brushes are a little used, but the had just been washed and then I used them again before taking pictures, stupidly. When I say "New In" I mean new in my collection, they are pretty new though, these brushes came out in October 2014 and will be selling until all stock is sold, I presume, as they are Limited Edition.

When it comes to beauty, makeup, hair care etc I'm sure we all have a few things we would love to buy and put on a list of things to buy and try out. I have a large list but here I've listed some of the items that I wanted to buy and try in 2015. There are a few more things that spring to mind that I want to try, but these are my top picks.

REVIEW // L'oreal Nude Magique BB Powder

4 comments


L'oreal Nude Magique BB Powder in Light - £6.99, Boots

As a girl with oily skin, setting my foundation, and any other liquids, on my face is definitely a must. I dread to think how I'd look if I didn't. My search for the perfect face powder is never over, I've tried MAC MSF Natural, Rimmel Stay Matte and Maybelline Matte Maker and whilst all of them do the trick, I just like to shop around and see if I can find a holy grail or just to see if there are any better products on offer.

My quest for the perfect setting powder landed me at the L'oreal counter in Boots where I found the Nude Magique BB Powder. I was quite intrigued by it, as its a BB Powder, I didn't really understand it, so I thought I'd buy it and give it a try.

The Soundtrack to my Life Tag is a tag that asks numerous questions revolving around music which was created by Lily Melrose & Zoe LDN. Click here to view Zoe's Answers & here to view Lily's answers


I've also been a lover of music, not one specific genre either, but not necessarily a "I like everything" type of person. As soon as I saw this tag, created by Zoe & Lily, I really wanted to do it and I've no idea why it's taken me so long to get around to it! So I'll stop waffling and get into the questions...

REVIEW // Maybelline Colorsensational Elixir

Maybelline Colorsensational Elixir (L-R) in Mandarine Rupture, Raspberry Rhapsody & Nude Illusion, £6.99 each - Boots

Right off the bat I want to say I've never been a fan of lipglosses, they're not my deal, they're not my thing and I'm not that gal. Even the none sticky ones, I find my hair sticks to them anyway. Coloured glosses however are a different matter, I love how they can add another level of colour to you lipstick or just your lips on a day where you want a little colour but not too much.

One day whilst browsing in Boots I saw the Colour Elixirs from Maybelline had been brought to the UK and I wanted to try a few so I picked up the ones that stood out to me and I knew I would get the most use out of.

REVIEW // Makeup Revolution Blush & Concealer Palettes

 Makeup Revolution 6 colour blush palette in Sugar & Spice, £6 - Makeup Revolution
Makeup Revolution 6 colour ultra cover & conceale palette in Light, £6 - Makeup Revolution

Palettes are so handy to have for things like concealer and blush as you can have larger numbers of colours all in one palette, which is perfect if you want to take your makeup travelling or if you're a Makeup Artist and want to stock up on as many colours and textures as possible with limited bag space.

As I'm currently writing this, sitting on my bed with my boyfriend watching Naruto beside me I was going to name this post "New Years Resolution and a look back on 2014" but something led me to change my mind.

I was never a gel girl, I was felt tip liners all the way, they were just easy and the lazy way to get a cat flick in the morning, but since discovering gel I definitely will not be reverting my any means necessary.
