Rediscovered Products

IMG_1289

As a beauty addict I have so many products that it’s inevitable that I forget about some products and that some just find their way to the back of my draw.  So the other day I went digging for products that I haven’t used for a long time and need to be back in my beauty life!

To start with its the Revlon Photoready Skinlights in Bare Light – As I am an oily skinned girl I have to get my glow on in ways that don’t make my skin look shiny and oily just lit from within.  I remember this product being perfect for this!  I used it underneath my foundation which made the glow look really natural but made me look alive instead of just matte and flat.  I used this again the other day and it really is a little beaut, I’m not sure why it made its way to the back of my draw but it will definitely be going back into rotation.  Another base products I have neglected is the Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation – I purchased this as it was described as the oily girls dream so how could I not go for it?  In summer I fell in love!  It would last on my skin all day without moving or sliding off my face and staying pretty much matte till the end.  This is a very matte foundation so I used in in conjunction with the Revlon Skinlights and it just added a subtle glow without it losing its staying power.  I know that when it starts to get a bit warmer this will be my go to foundation.

To liven my face up I’ve rediscovered my Nars Adult Content Cheek Palette – This is a do it all palette, its got a natural blush a bright blush a highlighter and a brown blush that can be used as a bronzer and a highlighter.  The reason I rediscovered this one is the thought of travel, I will be heading to Europe in January (A long way away yet I’m still excited) and as soon as I thought of this trip my mind immediately went to what makeup will I take?!  This little bundle will be perfect!  It’s got everything I need and I absolutely love the shade Deep Throat for everyday use and Desire for party time.  Unfortunately this was a limited edition palette however, Nars are constantly coming out with cheek palettes and they are all amazing!  Finally its a stunning lip colour, Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate in 107 – I rediscovered this beauty from a little known youtuber called Zoella, you might not know her, she only has 8 millions followers (haha).  She is a major fan of this lipstick and after seeing her wear this in so many videos I knew I had to bring this back for winter, it’s.  This one is a brand spanking new tube, I seem to have misplaced my old one or used it up but boy oh boy am I glad I bought a new one!  It’s the perfect winter shade of a deep red wine and even looks brilliant with my very pale skin winter skin.

So there are my most recent rediscovered products!  Are there any products that you have rediscovered lately?

Must Have Mascara’s

IMG_1291

I don’t leave the house without a slick of mascara on my eyes, it just adds that oomph that makes me look alive and not a zombie.  So today I though I would share with you my all time favourite mascaras!

IMG_1293

First up is probably not a shock to anyone who has ever read this blog, I write about it all the bloody time!  It’s the Covergirl Clump Crusher Extensions – This is a beautiful subtle mascara that literally separates every single lash and gives your lashes that real fanned out effect.  It’s also perfect for layering up as the name suggests it does not clump.  I would say that I use this mostly on day to day occasions but I know I will always have it in my stash.  I have tried so many drugstore and high end mascaras and this is the only one that does not smudge on my lower lash line so no matter what I use on my top lashes,this little baby is going on the bottom lashes.  Next up is Benefit Roller Lash – This has been a very hyped up product in the beauty world and for a good reason in my opinion.  It’s a super dramatic mascara that really gives your lashes a full on curl and full on black lashes.  At first I wasn’t the biggest fan as it was too wet and sort of clumped my lashes together but now I can’t get enough of the stuff!  I’ve even got my Mum converted to it!  I find this mascara super easy for when I am in a rush and just want something I can slick on my lashes in one coat and go.  Now to the drugstore end it’s the Jordana Best Lash Extreme Volumising Mascara – This one is so cheap that It’s definitely worth having in your stash.  Much like the Clump Crusher it really seperates every single lash leaving you with a doll eye effect, you get super long separated lashes which is my preffered look.  Again I found this mascara a little bit wet to begin with but after I continued to use it and it dried out a little bit I do really love it. Next up is a new one to my collection it’s the Max Factor Masterpeice Transform Mascara – I definitely wasn’t sure about this one to begin with but boy have I changed my tune!  It’s such a dramatic mascara that adds a butt load of volume and length as well as super black lashes,  Once you get the hang of the wand you can seriously get a dramatic look out of this baby.  Finally it’s the most hyped mascara launch I have ever seen Benefit They’re Real Mascara – I’m not usually one for hype and I end up getting things months after they come out but with this one I wanted it straight away!  Although this mascara is a pain in the arse to get off it is just beautiful!  It lengthens separates and with that little ball on the end you can really get in and cot ever single lash.  I think this is about my third tube of this and I know I will go back for more!

So there you go my mascara must haves!  What mascara are you loving at the moment?

Eyebrow Essentials

As we all know eyebrows are key to any makeup look and I know that I never leave the hows without my brows on!  Over the years I have tried many, many products but for the moment these are my absolute favourites.

First up is the Tom Ford Brow Sculptor in Taupe – this really is a luxury brow product that I love!  It has an angled tip with makes it really easy to fill in all the little gaps and it quite hard which means it is very hard to go too dark or too overboard.  Next up is a definite bargain!  It’s the Essence Eyebrow Designer in Brunette – This is seriously cheap and seriously good!  Its a hard waxy pencil that just glides through the brows, it makes it really easy to use and I actually find myself reaching for this one more than my Tom Ford one.   To set these pencils I use the Benefit Gimme Brow in Light – This is perfect to add a little oomph to the brows as well as setting them in place.  I also use this by itself if i’m having a ‘no makeup makeup’ day.  I don’t think I could live without this product to be honest but I also really want to try out the Loreal version of this.  Finally is the Natio Brow Kit – This was my first foray into brow powders and i’m pretty sure its still my favourite.  The powders are quite hard so it doesn’t end up all over your face and gives you really perfected brows.  I often use this on a night out for when I really want my brows ‘on fleek’ (oh gosh I can’t believe I just said that!).

So there you go, my brow essentials!  What do you use on your brows?

June Favourites!

IMG_1264_2

 Favourites time!  June has been and extremely busy month with lots of uni work and a major research paper due so I spent most of my month in my tracks locked to laptop.  However, when I did venture out of my study cocoon these are the products I have been using and loving.

First up is a little product that I picked up in Singapore, I had heard Vivianna Does Makeup rave about this products so I knew I had to give it a try.  It’s the Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment –  Now I love everything beauty but with my hair I am a complete shocker!   I have no idea what I am doing so this little beaut saves me so much.  I add a little dob to my hair and brush it through, I blow dry it and then walk out the door.  It adds a brilliant amount of volume to my flat drab hair yet it also leaves it nice and smooth.  I would recommend this to anyone who like me doesn’t really know what they’re doing with their hair or anyone who just wants to pop something in their hair and be done with it.  Next up is my perfect base at the moment I use the Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturiser in light medium and the Cover Fx Custom Cover Drops in N20 – This base has enough coverage to disguise all the thing that I don’t want anyone to be seeing plus it feels nice and light on the skin.  I have a whole post on why I love this combo as well as how I apply it here.  The next product is fairly new to me.  I asked a friend of mine to pick it up for me in Hawaii, now this friend is not obsessed with makeup and when she saw the price of this particular item I’m pretty sure she almost had a heart attack!  I think I remember the world ‘it’s just a friggen eyeshadow!’, but I wanted it so I got it and I don’t regret it for a second.  It’s the Giorgio Armani Eye Tint in 10 Senso – This is a beautiful dark brown shade with a little bit of warmth to it.  It’s so easy to use I just swipe it over the lids and blend it out, simple as that!  Finally its the Max Factor Masterpiece Transform Mascara – I received this in the Autumn Edit of Marie Claire’s Parcel.  I put off using it due to my ridiculously overflowing mascara collection, but I couldn’t resist it much longer I had to crack that baby open.  Boy am I glad I did!  This mascara is so dramatic, it adds bucket loads of volume whilst being extremely black it just a great mascara that gives you dramatic lashes with just a couple of swipes of the wand.  Now I do find this very wet so I do wipe the excess product off just so all my lashes don’t completely clump together but other than that I think I’ve found a winner!

So there you go, my June Favourites!  What were your favourites this month?

Flawless Natural Base

IMG_1268

I’ve been trying to go for a bit more of a natural base lately.  I mean I still love a full coverage matte foundation but on a day to day base I’ve been wanting to go for a bit of a lighter look.  To achieve this I’ve been using my favourite tinted moisturiser the Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturiser in Light Medium – this is a lovely light texture yet it still has a fair bit of coverage.  Like the original Tarte full coverage foundation it performs some sort of miracle on the skin, it has lots of coverage yet feels feather light on your skin which is exactly what I want.  Now that I’ve said that it has a decent amount of coverage I still feel like it could use just a touch more to really hide my redness so I add one to two drops of the Cover FX Custom Cover Drops in N20 – this is one of the best products I have purchased in a long time!  It is just pure pigment so it adds so much more coverage to anything!  I haven’t tried these with a regular moisturiser yet but when I add it to this tinted moisturiser it really just adds that extra little kick to it.  This added coverage also means I don’t have to use any extra concealer on my face which always saves time.  So what I do with these is put a blob of the Tarte on the back of my hand then add one to two drops of the Cover FX, depending on how my skin is looking that day, and mix them together.  I then apply this all with the Sigma F80 Flat Kabuki brush – this really buffs the product into the skin which again makes it have that natural look, instead of sitting on top of the skin it really sinks in and becomes a part of your skin.  I just top this off with some concealer under the eyes and some translucent powder to set everything and my base is done!

What’s In My Handbag!

IMG_1156I love looking at what people carry around with them in their bags so I thought it might be fun for you to see what I’ve got lying around in my bag!  My bag of choice at the moment is the Longchamp Le Pilage Large Tote in Black – I have to say this is the best bloody purchase I have ever made!  Its just such a simple bag that literally holds everything I need, I use it pretty much everyday to take to uni so I often have my laptop and all of my books and it manages to fit it all!  It is also super comfortable, the straps are super long so they always fit over my shoulder even when I have a big bulky coat on.  I’ll definitely be taking this little beauty with me to Europe at the end of the year.

IMG_1158

My current wallet if from an Australian brand called Tilkah – its a beautiful tan leather with a bright pink stone on the clip.  I love this wallet because it is seriously huge!  I love it if I’m just heading to the shops, I can chuck my phone and keys into the zipper compartment and that’s all I need.  Its just a really handy all in one wallet that gets a lot of use.

IMG_1161

Now I am a four eyes!  I am pretty darn blind without my glasses so I need to have them with me at all times!  My sunglasses are prescription ones that I get done at OPSM, the frames are Emporio Armani.  These are probably about the second or third pair of prescription sunglasses I’ve had over the last couple of years, I have a tendency to leave them places especially at pubs after a few cheeky daytime drinks!  I’ve been getting my optical glasses online for the past couple of years, I just find they have a much larger range to choose from so I get my eyes tested at the optometrist and put the details in and a few weeks later I’ve got brand new glasses!  These particular ones are from Bonlook in the style Bis Ebony Granite, I’m really loving this rounded style at the moment and I love the little touch of tortoise shell in the corners.

IMG_1163

My all time handbag essentials are pretty self explanatory, I always carry paracetamol with me, you just never know when a headache will hit.  I also always keep a muesli bar with me, I travel to Newcastle a lot so I always like to have something to snack on whilst I’m on the train, I’m loving the 247 Salted Caramel and Banana with Quinoa, they’re pretty healthy and very filling.  For those long days a little of bit of deodorant is essential!  I love the little travel size ones that Rexona do, they don’t take up any room plus they last for quite a while.  Finally I always have to have a pen with me, I don’t know why but I do, this is just a little one I picked up in India, I thought it was quite fun and cute.

IMG_1169

Now for the really fun stuff, makeup!  I try not to carry too much with me but I somehow end up always having a million lipsticks floating around in the bottom of my bag!  First up is the Chanel Les Beige Healthy Glow Sheer Powder – as an oily girl I always need to have powder with m, this one is great as it always look super natural plus it has a bit of coverage in it.  I also carry with me the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer – this is for when I need to cover anything that needs a bit more oomph than just the powder.  To blend all that in I use the Real Techniques Duo Fibre Contour Brush – by the looks of this photo is definitely needs a good wash but I use this just the blend the concealer or powder over large surfaces of my face.  I feel I’ve been quite restrained with my lip products here and I can assure you I end up with more in there by the end of the week but I start with the Yves Saint Laurent Tint in Oil Cherry My Cherie – this is probably the one I use most on a day to day basis, its moisturising plus it adds a fair bit of colour to the lips.  Second is the NYX Matte Lipstick in Audrey – I love this lipstick so much!  Its my perfect pink shade and when I add the Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in East End Snob underneath it I know it’s going to last all day.  For when I want a red lip I have the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Striking – I love having a red option in my bag especially for when I’m doing something after work or uni I can just whack this on with the MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in High Energy on underneath and I have a red lip that will last all night!  I think carrying lip liners in my bag are a great idea, they can make your lipstick last a lot longer and if your lipstick is starting to wear off a little on the edges you can just touch it up with the lip liner.  For lip balm I have the luxurious By Terry Baume De Rose – I can’t believe I spent this much money on a lip balm but I really is the most beautiful balm I have ever used on my lips!  It adds a subtle pink touch to your lips and it lasts for so damn long so I don’t feel as bad for spending the money.

IMG_1170Last but not least at this time of year I always carry a scarf around with my, I really feel the cold in winter so I really need a scarf to add that extra bit of warmth, this one is quite big so it can double as a shawl as well.  I picked this up in a little town in the middle of nowhere in India, its made out camel wool which is what makes it so warm!  I just loved the colour and patterns on it and I knew I would regret it if I didn’t buy it.

So there you go that’s what’s in my handbag, this is probably on a perfect day, by the end of the week god only knows what’s found its way in there!

My Top 5 Drugstore Beauty Products!

IMG_1137

To follow up from my top 5 high end beauty products I though I would share with you my top 5 drugstore items!  Drugstore beauty products are some of the best out there and I would like to think I have a great mixture of drugstore and high end products and to be honest, in every day use I probably head for drugstore products most!

IMG_1142

First up is a holy grail product for me, its the Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous Foundation – I own a lot of foundations yet I still gravitate to this one a lot!  It’s perfect for me as it keeps my oily skin shine free for most of the day and has a brilliant amount of coverage.  What more could a girl ask for in a foundation!  I also have a whole post dedicated to this foundation here if you want to find out more.

IMG_1144

Next up is a product that I will always have in my makeup draw its the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser – this is one of the only products that truly covers my serious dark circles!  It has a good whack of coverage yet is so light and doesn’t cake at all.  I love apply this with my beauty blender to get a very natural finish then I place some powder over the top to really keep it in place.

IMG_1146

When it comes to eye shadows I tend towards the high end products however these Maybelline Colour Tatoo cream shadows really are brilliant!  They have a great colour range including this one in Pomegranate Punk as well as being brilliantly pigmented.  I have a couple of these in my stash but this one is particularly beautiful, it blends like a dream and really pops against my green eyes.

IMG_1147For mascaras I am pretty much strictly a drugstore girl with the exception of benefit, and this Covergirl Clump Crusher Extensions is my absolute favourite!  I have gone through about 8 of these beauties and use it pretty much every day, it has the perfect formula and the brush perfectly separates every single lash leaving you with long separated and fluttery lashes.  Plus this is the only mascara that does not smudge on my lower lashes so even when I am using another mascara this is always on my bottom lashes.

IMG_1153

Time for lips!  This is the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Ole Flamingo! – These liquid lipsticks rival any of the high end ones if you ask me.  They have a beautiful shade range and much creamier than some of there competitors, as well as being easy to apply they last for an extremely long time which is perfect if you want a bright lip without having to worry about touch up throughout the day.

So there you go my top 5 drugstore beauty products!  Have you got any drugstore suggestions that I can add to this list?

My Top 5 High End Beauty Products

IMG_1122

Who doesn’t love a good old high end product?  That feeling when you’ve saved up all your pennies and bring home a little beauty.  So here I am sharing my top 5 high end beauty products, I think these products are also a great starting point for anyone who wants to get into the high end game.

IMG_1127

Lets start of with a base product. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation – is one of my all time favourite foundations!  Now as I have said a bazillion times I am a very oily skinned girl and you with think the term luminous would turn me off but I just heard so many brilliant things that I had to try it.  As you may have guessed I was not disappointed!  This foundation has a great amount of coverage, it doesn’t cake or cling to dry patches and it lasts for a long darn time.  Now this little beauty also does not go shiny on my skin which I at first found hard to believe myself but It honestly doesn’t it just adds this beautiful lit from within glow without being greasy at all!  Its is fairly pricey but I know that when this bottle runs out I will definitely be repurchasing.

IMG_1129

Now how can you talk about high end products without talking about Chanel!  This product is the Chanel Illusion Dombre Eyeshadow in Emerveille – This is a stunning pinky champagne colour that looks amazing by itself or can also be used for a brilliant base colour.  These eyeshadows have a very odd texture, they feel creamy yet powdery at the same time, this means they are super, super easy to blends and they don’t crease.  They are also really long lasting, so pretty much the perfect eyeshadow.

IMG_1134

Sticking with the eyes I thought it would be wise to pick an eyeshadow palette.  Now I have many, many palettes so it was extremely hard to pick but I feel like the Urban Decay Naked 1 palette really has it all!  It has a beautiful combination of warm and cool tones as well a great range of browns pinks and even some dark greys.  I am absolutely obsessed with the colour toasted as well as the matte colours and smog and, you know what I love them all!  It really is a great palette that has everything you will ever need!  I even managed to convince my cousin to pick this up whilst we were in Singapore, and as expected she adores it.

IMG_1133

Everything I have tried from Charlotte Tilbury’s range it bloomin amazing!  The Charlotte Tilbury Rock n Kohl Eyeliner in Barbarella Brown – is no exception!  It is a highly highly pigmented eyeliner which glides on so easily and opaque which is exactly what you want in an eyeliner.  I use this baby for everything, to add some definition on my upper lash line, do a winged liner, and use tin the upper and lower waterline.  This is perfect for all of those things plus it does not budge once it sets.  This is one eyeliner that will always be in my supply.

IMG_1130

Now I’m sure you all guessed that this is my would be in here!  I have an absolute love affair with the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella –  It is my all time favourite lip product, they have beautiful shades, they are super long lasting and so easy to apply.  If I was to recommend a high end lip product this would be it!

So there you go my top 5 high end beauty products!  Next up I am going to show you my top 5 drugstore beauty products so stay tuned.

Do you have any high end products to recommend?

My Favourite Liquid Lipsticks

IMG_1117

As I’ve said time and time again I love matte lips!  So this new revolution of matte liquid lipsticks came around I new they would be my new best friend.  So in this post I’ve picked some of my favourite formulas as well as my favourite shades.

First up is a brilliant drugstore liquid lipstick, its the Bourgeois Rouge Edition Velvet in Ole Flamingo! – This is such a creamy and easy to use product plus it comes in some amazing shades!  This shade is a stunning dark pink that is seriously perfect all year round.  Now this one isn’t as long lasting as some of the other but the upside to that is that it is much creamier and not as drying on the lips.  Next up is the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bauhau5 – This brand is fairly new to me but I have heard such amazing things about it that I new I had to try them.  This shade is perfect for the winter weather, its a beautiful purple berry shade which I can’t wait to get some wear out of.  The next one is a little controversial Lime Crime Velvetine in Suedeberry – Now I bought these before I was aware of all the controversy and because I don’t like to waste I’m still using them however, i won’t be repurchasing.  This shade is a bright orange colour which really makes a statement, I love wearing this with minimal eye makeup to really make it pop.  Another orangy shade is the Australis Velour Lips Matte Lip Cream in Mi-am-mee – Australis is a really great brand especially for bright colours!  These lip creams are no exception, this shade is a bright coral orange that looks brilliant in summer and much like the Bourjois one it feels quite creamy.  Now to double up I had to include another shade of the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Peach Club – This shade is a brilliant everyday product that I do wear a lot!  This is perfect for when I have a long day and want something to last, and when it does fade it’s not as noticeable as the bright ones.  Finally it’s the product that introduced me to liquid lipsticks the Lime Crime Velvetine in Pink Velvet – This is a beautiful hot, hot pink!  I love this lipstick with some sheer sparkly eyeshadow and a winged liner, perfect for a party night!

So there you go my favourite liquid lipsticks, I hope they are here to stay!  Are there any other brands or shades you can recommend?

What I’ve Been Wearing This Week!

IMG_1100_2

It’s time again to show you what I’ve been wearing and loving this week.  I haven’t had much on this week, I have just been attached to my laptop as it’s the end of semester and of course all of my assignments are due at once!  When I have ventured out in public looking at little worse for wear this has been my go to look.

IMG_1103

For my base I’ve been using my trust old Cyber Colors Zero Pore Primer – I know I can’t trust this to make my makeup last all day with minimum shine woohoo!  For foundation I have discovered a new go to base, it’s the Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturiser to that I add 1-2 drops of the Cover FX Custom Cover Drops-I love this tinted moisturiser but sometimes it just isn’t enough coverage for me so the custom cover drops really up the ante coverage wise and give me quite a full coverage yet light feeling look.  As I’ve been studying pretty hard and not getting a whole lot of sleep i’ve been sticking to my holy grail dark circle covering duo Napoleon Perdis The One Concealer and Maybelline Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser – I just know I can trust this duo to cover all manner of darkness so its been my absolute go to at the moment.

IMG_1106

To set all this I have been using the Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder – this keeps me matte whilst making my makeup last considerably longer.  To add some colour to my face I’ve been favouring an oldie but a goodie its Milani Baked Powder Blush in Luminoso – This adds a subtle pinky peach colour to my cheeks plus a bit of shimmer so there is not need for a highlight in this case.  What a time saver!

IMG_1109

For the eyes I used one of my absolute favourite eyeshadow palettes, I originally didn’t know how I felt about the pink shades when I first got this but as soon as it was in my hands I fell in love!  They are such beautiful shades and looking stunning on my eyelids.  I turn to this palette a lot.  So for this look I placed Burnout all over the lids the place a mixture of  Liar and Factory in the crease, this is quite a subtle girly look but the darkness in the crease really adds some dimension to the eye.  I also put a touch of Dust in the inner corner of my eye.

IMG_1112

Now I didn’t want to really do a thick liner or anything so I just tightlined my top lashine with the Charlotte Tilbury Rock N Kohl in Barbarella Brown – This makes my lashes look fuller without a proper liner look.  As I said I’ve been studying a lot so my eyes are quite tired and red so I decided to really brighten them up with the Charlotte Tilbury Rock N Kohl in Eye Cheat – this Charlotte Tilbury one is the only skin coloured eyeliner that seems to stay on my waterline all day so I absolutely love it!  For mascara I’ve been using my trusty old Covergirl Clump Crusher Extensions – I just love this mascara, I mean don’t get me wrong I love some high end mascaras but every single time I go back to my Covergirl Clump Crusher I just fall back in love with it!  Plus this is the only mascara I can use on my bottom lashes that won’t smudge!  Finally for eyebrows I used something quick and easy, Tom Ford Brow Sculptor in Taupe – I can quickly do my brows with this and as the colour isn’t too dark its quite hard to make a mistake with it and on top of that I used the Benefit Gimme Brow in Medium/Deep – this just darkens the pencil up a bit to match my hair and sets those things in place!  

Now I haven’t mentioned lipstick but I haven’t really been wearing any, as its winter my lips have been so dry that I’ve just been sticking to lip balm

So that’s what I’ve been wearing this week!  What have you been loving this week?
