Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow Review & Swatches

I'm not one to get drawn into collections that drop every other month...but this one by Too Faced really caught my eye. The Sweet Peach Collection.

I think it was the words 'Peach Glow' that got me. And the fact it's making me look forward to spring even more than I already do. I love spring summer make up so much more, I'm a pink/peach kinda gal. I love the healthy look. Dark winter lips just aren't my thing. Right now on to the good stuff. Let's take a look inside.

Just look at that glowy sheen.


I've actually been wearing these for a few days and I absolutely love it. An absolute great purchase that I recommend to everyone as soon as you can get your hands on it.
The blusher, bronzer and highlight are all really finely milled and of amazing quality.

I also picked up a lipgloss.

Colour Peach Fuzzz

Really lovely creamy gloss with a good colour pay off.
The collection all has a lovely peachey smell of course.
Hope you've all had a lovely Christmas and wishing you all a happy healthy new year. x

Stila stay all day * Sparkle all night review & swatches

So I'm back after forever with my latest purchase. Let's not ramble on about why it's taken me so long....let's focus on that I'm back. For now:)
A little delivery came in the post today and it was my Stila stay all day sparkle all night liquid mini lipsticks. Wow that was a mouthful. I've been eyeing these pretty much all December and when Beautybays sale started I headed over. I picked these up for £25 down from £32. Pretty good for 5 lipsticks and 1 gloss.

So mattes are everywhere....I'm jumping on the bandwagon. I blame Kylie Jenner to be honest. A couple of these colours are listed as great dupes for hers. Kylies lipsticks look beautiful but are such a hassle to ship over, there's extra customs charges to pay and the delivery time can be weeks. I'm a next day delivery kinda gal.

So while these are mini tubes you get a good amount of product, they apply beautifully and are as comfortable as any matte liquid lipstick can possibly be. I would always prep my lips first with a lush lip scrub and lip balm before application.

Now on to the good stuff.
It's swatch time.

Left to Right.

If you can still get hold of these....then hurrrrryyyy:)

Anna Sui Flight Of Fancy

Hi girlies, a quick post tonight. I've been absolutely loving this perfume by Anna Sui called 'Flight of Fancy'. It literally is the perfect fragrance for Spring Summer time. I always like to switch my scents around depending on the time of year and this is super sweet and fresh. It retails at around £25 for 50ml but I picked this one up for £11.50 on Amazon. Hope your all well. X

Beauty Repurchases

Hi girlies, I constantly keep lists in my phone of beauty products i want to buy so my 'wishlist' basically and products that i need to repurchase as they are finishing. So i thought it might be nice to give you a little peak at my list. I also always repurchase these products so you know i absolutely love them and in my opinion are 100% worth every penny.

Top Left. 
Guerlain Meteorites Primer. 
£46 available at Feel Unique
This is literally hands down the best primer i have ever used and trust me when i say i have tried a few, this just keeps your make up put. It hasn't got that usual silicone feel that most primers have which i personally don't like this is more of a serum texture and smells a little like those parma violet sweets you used to buy as a kid. Im probably on my tenth bottle of joke.

Top Right. 
Armani Master Colour Corrector. Shade-Abricot. 
£26 available at Feel Unique.
If you suffer with dark under eye circles which i know is generally more of an issue for darker skinned girls then this might just be the answer to your prayers. A couple of swipes of this underneath your eyes and then i use my Real Techniques Expert face brush to literally push the product into the skin and it really does neutralise the colour. I do go in afterwards with other concealers but this works wonders at correcting the tone.

Bottom Left. 
Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner. Shade - Stingray.
£14.50 available at Feel Unique.
So my love for the Avon Supershock liner has fallen by the wayside and i have fallen for this eyeliner in a big way. It is soooo black and it actually stays on much longer than any other eyeliner. It is super smooth and creamy and a massive plus is that it twists up and i don't have to constantly sharpen it.

Bottom Right.
Estee Lauder Little Black Primer.
£20 available at Feel Unique.
Im going to be honest that I've never really been that into Estee Lauder as a brand, it always seemed like more of a 'mum brand' and i guess they probably recognised that and went and made Kendel Jenner the face of their new products. Seeing as she's Supermodel royalty now thats definitely one way of getting yourself well and truly noticed. I picked this up on a whim and had no real hopes for it. Ill hold my hands up and say i was wrong, this stuff is incredible! It gives you big bam lashes! You apply a coat of it and it looks like you have applied a thin little layer of mascara, you then apply your actual mascara on top and it looks incredible. I never apply mascara without a coat of this underneath now as the results are just depressing. Im on to my third tube and all i can say is i hope this never ever gets discontinued.

Top Left. 
Laura Mercier Body Souffle Ambre Vanille.
Available from John Lewis £45. 
My favourite moisturiser in the whole wide world. This smells so beautiful, i apply it every night after my shower and basically just go to bed smelling amazing:) It is really easy to apply and sinks into the skin super quickly it really is something i never go without.

Top Right. 
Tom Ford Lipstick- Pink Dusk. 
Available from John Lewis £38.
I wouldn't be me without a pinky nude lipstick right. This is my current go to lip combination (these 3 products) i have probably been wearing them daily for like a month straight. I love the creaminess of Tom Ford lipsticks, they apply so nicely and have a really nice hint of a vanilla smell. This lipstick goes EVERYWHERE with me.

Bottom Left.
Lipstick Queen - Bare Nude Sinner.
Available at Space NK £22.
More of a peachy toned nude, a little to peach for me alone but paired with this Tom Ford lipstick its a dream. Lipstick Queen i feel are a really underrated brand, i don't see them get talked about much on blogs or on YouTube but they apply really well, last a decent amount of time and have a great colour payoff.

Bottom Right.
Tanya Burr Lipgloss - Lunch Date.
Available at Superdrug £5.99.
Last but not least a Tanya Burr lipgloss. These smell like sweeties which might put some people off i guess but i love it personally. I think she got this formula bang on, great colour payoff on all of her glosses, lasts on the lips without being sticky and doesn't split or settle into cracks etc. This is again a pinky nudey colour and brilliant for everyday wear. I personally layer this on top of lipsticks but it could easily be worn alone.

Hope you have enjoyed this mini review of my favourite products currently on my repurchase list.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream Review

Hi girlies, its time to talk SKIN. I barely ever mention skin products as I'm fiercely loyal to a few and i don't like to chop and change with it. I think keeping my skin care routine as simple as possible with the best products for me is the way to go.
So as you may know i am and probably forever will be in love with YSL Forever Light Creator Serum. It just works, it definitely gives you glowier skin and is amazing as a moisturiser before you apply your make up. Anyway I'm afraid with the cold weather it just wasnt cutting it at night time and my T Zone was just left feeling dry and flakey a lot....and we all know that isn't the best base for applying any make up. So i needed to try something else! I treated myself to the Charlotte Tilbury Advent calendar at Christmas which cost a whopping £150 and contained a very generous sample of her magic cream. So much so that it lasted me an entire month. Now I'm being totally honest with this  in that I LOVE THIS CREAM!! It literally transforms your face into a babys backside....or you know something like that.
I instantly felt the difference and my make up was applying smoother, less creases for it to be settling in and dry flakey patches. Honestly this stuff is incredible. As its her magic cream we have no idea whats in it making it so amazing but it feels beautiful on the skin and i love applying it every night.
A full size pot will cost £75 but i think it will last a good few months easily. Now I've heard a few bloggers say that Ponds cream could be a great dupe for this and you know what i see where they are coming from with that claim but honestly I'm not risking not having the results this cream gives so in my opinion it is £75 well spent.

Charlotte has also released her Magic Night Cream which I'm currently putting to the test so ill keep you posted.

Tarteist Contour Swatch & Review

Hi girlies, time to show you guys this beautiful palette by Tarte. I spotted this on Instagram and just knew i had to have it , it looks so pretty and you know that whole "perfect for travel thing" i actually travel much lol!
So the outside is pretty sturdy, big disc like package with a metallic gold finish.


1. Highlight.
2. Correct.
3&4. Contour.
5. Accentuate.

Middle is a white translucent powder.

Left to Right 1-5.

Ok so down to the nitty gritty. These powders are very powdery if that makes sense. There isn't really any finely milled business going on not think this is on par with hourglass or kevin aucoin in any way. However they do the job, the blush colour i really like and the contour shades are pretty good. Ill be honest, i have used this palette but i definitely don't reach for it on a daily basis and it hasn't made it into any travel plans either. I would consider taking it for a weekend away if it was a chilled out vibe but ill be honest if i wanted my make up to look flawless i wouldn't be picking this.
Not Tartes finest product but pretty to have in your stash i guess.

Mwah xoxo

Top 3 Winter Essentials

Hi girlies, I can't quite believe it's already February but it is and we just have a few more weeks hopefully of winter left until we can start looking forward to Spring. For me winter is all about being cosy, spending lots of time snuggled up in a blanket watching Netflix and having pamper evenings.
Here is a few products that have made winter a little easier.

This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray.

This actually does work! I was pretty sceptical but whether it's the lavender in it or just the fact I've got in to a routine of using it every night it does give me a lovely peaceful sleep.

Aveda Hand Relief.

Dry hands! I think at some point this catches everyone out during the colder months. This is probably the only hand cream that really does make a difference and help repair dry hands.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream.

I'm super fussy with skin care products and pretty reluctant to try out new ones. However this Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream came in my advent calender, my skin was super dry one night so I slapped it on. Instantly my skin felt relived, smoother and softer. In the morning I applied my make up and noticed that it applied so much smoother. There really is something magic about this cream. I absolutely will be repurchasing the full size.

Hope your all having a lovely Sunday. X

New Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector

Clarins have brought out two new colours in their instant light lip perfector range and I knew this one would be just up my street. These are the perfect lipbalm-lipgloss hybrid with the most amazing vanilla burnt sugar type smell. I literally love these and have one in my bag at all times. This new colour in 07 is the perfect dusty rose colour and looks fantastic worn alone or on top of lippie.


Just perfect. Most definitely a staple in my make up bag.
