May Favourites

The time has come yet again (rather quickly might I add) for monthly favourites. There's a lot of gold in must be the magpie in me.

Firstly the 2 best brushes in the entire world! These are part of the Sephora Pro Brush line in number #55 and #56.

Nars Deep Throat - making another appearance in a post.

Wet n Wild - 'Walking on Eggshells' I ordered this on Amazon for a few pounds and am blown away with the pigmentation and how well these blend. I literally reach for these daily.

Dior Addict Lipstick - 'Diorkiss' this is a beautiful sheer pop of colour, perfect for the time of year.

Guerlain Mascara - I forgot my love for this mascara as I've been using YSL shocking for so long. Just recently I've been using it again and it really does give you the prettiest blackest fluterriest lashes. I'm aware that flutteriest may not be a word...I'm ok with that :)

Tom Ford - Pink Dusk. The perfect pinky nude colour for anytime of day.

YSL Cinema - A beautiful underrated fragrance I don't hear many people talk about.

YSL Chromatics Palette - I use this wet and nothing shimmers even close to it. I will be doing a full post on this palette soon.

Hope everyone has had a lovely month and an amazing June x

Sephora Haul

Hi my unless you've been in hiding recently or without the internet and all forms of social media you will now know that Sephora ships to the UK *huraah*. I hung back from ordering as well....I genuinely didn't know what to get and everytime went on the site felt overwhelmed. There's just like....everyyyyything. Also recently my friend went to NYC so I had got her to pick me up a million things already.
Anyway I've watched many a Sephora haul on YouTube from my favourite beauty gurus and this allowed me to compile my own wishlist.

* Pro Flawless Airbrush #56
* Pro Airbrush Concealer #55
* Bite Deconstructed Rose Lip Library.
* Too Faced Liquid Lipstick - Melted Peony.
* Sephora - Ribbon Hair Ties.

These purchases were influenced by Fleurdeforce and Amelia Liana. I watched their videos and caved! I'll let you know soon what I think of the products.

Evening Essentials

The summer is coming...well ish and I'm enjoying socialising a whole lot more. So this post is going to show you my handbag essentials for a night out.

The handbag I like to use Mulberry Lily in Black and the medium size.

Sneak peak inside.

Purse - Michael Kors. I love the back of this purse as it has a slip in zip pocket that's bright yellow.

Beauty bits -
These are all housed in a cute new Ted Baker pencil case I bought this week online as they had a 20% sale. The size is perfect for a few essentials and just means I don't have to worry about anything opening/leaking.

So we have
* Nars blusher - Deep Throat.
* Rimmel lip liner - Eastend Snob.
* Tom Ford lipstick - Pink Dusk.
* Urban Decay Naked Gloss - Lovechild.
* Dior Addict Eau Fraiche Perfume.
* Urban Decay 24/7 liner - Perversion.
* Laura Mercier blusher brush.
* Maybelline Fit Me Concealer - 20.
* Dr Lipp nipple balm for lips.

I like to have my favourite fail safe luxury products on an evening out, everyone wants to look and feel their best and nobody wants to be faffing around with hard to work with products.
Also not pictured I of course carry my iPhone ready to Instagram pretty much everything :)

Mini Saturday Haul

So if you are in town....have one hour to kill....what do you do? hit up John Lewis, Space NK and Mac.
The 3 things I picked up....

I hadnt heard of this it is a new product by Chanel I just spied it at the counter.

This is basically a highlighter, powder and blush all in one product. I think it's pretty hard to pick out all products separately to use as the stripes are pretty narrow so I just use my big Real Techniques brush and use it as a setting powder mixed up. This works really well as it's got a hint of illuminator in and the peach tone just lifts your skin beautifully.

I caved and bought the mac 217 brush. Let's see what all the fuss is about!

Lastly another nude lipstick to add to my collection. I've had a lipstick by lipstick queen before and love their formulas. They are super rich and creamy.

Shower Goodies!

Hey ladies! That time of year has come around ....time to scrub up and bare those legs again. I absolutely love the entire Soap & Glory Range and these are a few bits I picked up recently:) I just find their shower gels, scrubs and moisturisers amazing quality and great value for money so worth a post I'd say! Hope you all have a great weekend x
