Perfect Foundation.





When it comes to foundation I've been a Lancome Girl through and through for years. I've been expressing my love for Teint Miracle for a while now but i have been feeling that its not giving me the coverage i need at the moment. Soooo I've started mixing Teint Idole Ultra (the old one) and Teint miracle together. This is the perfect mix, i get the coverage of Teint Idole and the luminous finish of Teint Miracle. I am absolutely loving the results at the moment. Both are in the colour 'Beige Daphne'.x

MUA Sugar Lips





Just wanted to share this little bargain with you that i bought a while ago and cant get enough of. Its MUA sweet kisses, included in their Love Hearts collection. Its so so cute and i think it was £2-3, cheap and is a huge pot so will last you forever! I use this daily on top of lipsticks to get a beautiful shine without the stickiness of a lipgloss. Im not sure if these are still available but if they are i would definitely buy one.x

Nars Deep Throat

Now anybody who reads my blog knows that my favourite everyday blusher is Nars Orgasm! However ive been using 'Deep Throat' for the last 2 months.

Look at the mess of the packaging! I love the whole black rubbery thing but its a nightmare to keep clean.



Its a pretty matte pink, not shimmery like orgasm. I've been using this all the time and despite having blogged about it in the past i needed to share my love for it once more.



I absolutely recommend this to anybody who is after a new blusher and i definitely think Nars are amazing quality x

No7 Primer





This post is a strange one for me to write.....
Recently Boots were doing their usual No7 £5 off vouchers so off I went with my handful and bought the new Airbrush Away Primer. I have a huge primer obsession and this one wins hands down, it left me with gorgeous dewy fresh looking skin. I literally couldn't understand how I lived without it. Now at £19.50 it's not cheap but worth every penny...BUT as I wore this day in day out I got a breakout. I don't usually suffer with spots so it was unusual but the problem was these spots actually hurt...the kind that really are painful! Now I can't be sure it was definitely due to the primer but once I changed my primer back to mac prep and prime my skin recovered. I'm gutted:( This is an amazing product but just didn't work for me. I will still use it now and again for a night out etc but that's it....not everyday wear for me. Would I recommend it?!....yes it's incredible...if it doesn't break you out you will be sure to get amazing results. I've never had a love hate relationship with a product but this is one of them x

Babyliss Root Boost


I love BIG hair! You know the saying "The bigger the hair the smaller the hips":) I have to say im not into the poker straight flat look anymore, it can be straight but with a bit of volume! Anyway my secret weapon is The Babyliss Root Boost. Ive had it about 2 years and use it after straightening every time i wash my hair.
So here is the badboy! Now some might just be looking at these thinking "they are crimpers love" and yes they are...but much smaller and thinner. After straightening each layer of hair i crimp the top section and as each layer falls on top my hair gets bigger.




I couldnt live without these and they are truly worth the money. I think they retail for about £30.




A picture just showing how i normally have my hair, this was a sunday afternoon and i was going nowhere fancy.




Anyone got any amazing hair tools they cant live without?x

First Aid Beauty Body Moisturiser





I've been attempting to use up lots of my luxury sample sized beauty box products. I have given this body moisturiser a go, it's errrm nothing special. I'm pretty sure it's not expensive but either way no repurchasing for me. I used it daily after a shower and can't say I noticed any difference in my skin at all I'm afraid. Thumbs down x

Jars for storage





I'm really into my jar storage at the moment. Keeping things handy and so I can actually see them and things don't get forgotten. It's slowly expanding and I think this is now enough. From the back left - right it's
1. Tools - scissors, cotton buds and hair clips.
2. Most used brushes.
3. Other brushes.
4. Mascaras open and those I havent used yet.
5. Front - Lipliners.
6. Eyeliners.
I love the way this looks and the fact I've collected different jars. Anyone else use jars for make up storage?x

Smash box Primer

I bought this primer a few weeks ago and have been using it every day so review time! Firstly it cost £30! A lot for a primer in my opinion but i had to give it a go for sure. They do a few different types but i really wasn't sure which one to go for so the assistant suggested a dewy finish one.
(Im not sure why the product has separated in the bottle...it was like this when i bought it).




Now the colour was a little scary coming out of the bottle.




Wowzers!




Ahhh thank god! Blended leaves a gorgeous glowy sheen and when you use your make up no colour is visible from the primer itself.




Verdict...FABULOUS!!!
This gives you gorgeous fresh, dewy skin! My make up stays on longer for sure but what i love is the beautiful base it gives you to work on. I would recommend this beauty to anybody. I found a SmashBox counter in Debenhams. x

Weekend beauty bits

Make up wise I bought a lipstick from Urban Decay and Eyeliner 24/7.
Lipstick colour - 'Lovechild'








Another gorgeous pink!




Eyeliner 'Binge'
Picture below using the eyeliner under my lower lash line.




The was sun shining and despite it being cold it made me need some summer sandals. I'm usually a flats girl through and through but this year i fancied a pair of wedges. I went for tan as they go with everything including my mulberry roxanne:)




And that's all folks...Happy Monday have a great week x

Photo of your favourite bracelet




This is part of my blogger challenge...which im not following too strictly just sort of picking and choosing the bits i like. Anyway...a picture of my favourite bracelet. This is my most special bracelet as i bought it in New York during my first trip there, for anyone that has been there they will know just how magical the place is. New York has such an exciting constant buzz about it. I got this from the little Tiffanys near wall street and it was lovely to buy myself such a beautiful present. Its a trip i wont ever forget....and every girl needs some Tiffanys right....:)

Favourite Mascara





Im into my jar storage at the moment and i keep the mascaras i use often or that are open like this so they are easy to grab and get used up. My favourite mascara by far and one that i never let myself run out of is YSL Faux Cils - Noir Radical. It gives you the most beautiful big, fluttery, voluminous black lashes! If you have not tried it then seriously ladies you are missing out!!! Buy buy buy!x
