Christmas Sparkle // Nars Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow

BEAUTY

Christmas is just the perfect time for glitter, don't you think? Over the festive season I love to put that extra oomph into my eye make-up and this Nars Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in the shade Dione does exactly that. Dione is an extremely sparkly silver-taupe shade and looks just perfect when pared with a darker brown shade at the outer corners of the eyes, as well as alone. This shade looks cool in the pan but is much warmer when on the eyes, which I like.

Not Your Average Blusher // Tom Ford Ravish

BEAUTY

So it's getting closer to Christmas, and in my mind this calls for some serious luxury and glamour - this year in the form of Tom Fords gorgeous blusher in the shade Ravish. I wanted something a little different from all the corals and pinks I usually reach for, and this shade fits the bill perfectly.

Winter Savior // Lush Popcorn Lip Scrub

BEAUTY

So…it's winter - this can only mean one thing; the curse of chapped, dry lips! A mix of the dreaded winter wind and cold, plus central heating sadly does this to me, meaning my lips are in desperate need of some extra TLC. Without further ado, step forward Lush's popcorn lip scrub - my lip saviour!

Lips + Boys // Tom Ford Michael Lipstick

BEAUTY

When I heard that Tom Ford was releasing a collection of 50 miniature lipsticks all named after the various men who have influenced his life, I could almost hear my purse crying. Throw in the words "limited early release" and voila purchase made! In all fairness, I am proud of myself for only choosing one, although it was a long and tough decision (ha! seriously though it was). Eventually I went for Michael - a vibrant warm pink-coral, with a slight frosty finish and a subtle shimmer running through.

Battle Of The Masks // Avene, Ren, Sunday Riley + Sisley

BEAUTY

Recently I've been getting into face masks. I never used to like putting a mask on my face; because I have sensitive skin some were irritating, however after testing out various sample sizes I've become a convert.

Flower Power // Lush Amandopondo Bubble Bar

BEAUTY

Ahh lush bubble bars, the perfect pick me up when your getting the winter blues…This one in particular feels lovely and calming, perfect for when you need just a little slice of me time. It contains rose absolute from the Damask rose, as well as lemon oil and sweet orange oil. The smell is really crisp and fresh, a nice contrast from the sweet scents I usually go for (creamy candy I'm talking about you!).

Hair Hydration // Phyto 7 Day Cream

BEAUTY

You may own moisturisers for the skin, but now there's moisturiser for your hair! This little tube of goodness is a leave-in moisturiser containing seven different natural plant ingredients, which help prevent frizz and split ends, all whilst leaving hair feeling silky smooth and looking shiny.

Autumn Skin // Nars Sheer Glow Foundation

BEAUTY

I've been meaning to write about this little gem for quite a while now, but with the clocks turning back and Autumn in full swing, now seems like the perfect moment. This is a much hyped product, but for good reason; it feels light on the skin and gives a good medium coverage (not sheer as the name suggests), as well as giving a subtle healthy glow.


26 October 2014

Lush Christmas // Candy Mountain Bubble Bar

BEAUTY

I know it's a tad early to be getting into the Christmas spirit, but guess what… Lush has got all of their Christmas goodies in stock! There's some old favourites hiding amongst some newbies, plus PINK packaging; could it get any more tempting?

Autumn Scent // Diptyque Baies Mini Candle

LIFESTYLE

When it comes to Autumn I love having early nights in relaxing with a scented candle burning in the background, especially when said candle smells as divine as this particular one from diptyque. Baies is one of their signature scents; smelling of red berries, blackcurrant leaves and roses. I find it to be fresh, fruity and floral with a sharp warmth to it.


26 September 2014

Flawless Finish // Vichy Dermablend Foundation

BEAUTY

Let me first make a confession… I'm a complete foundation junkie. You name it I'm quite likely to have tried it, especially if it's a really hyped up product. So, with that admission out of the way, allow me to introduce Vichy Dermablend; a foundation which deserves the hype.


22 September 2014

Pop of Pink // Chanel Powder Blush Ultra Rose

BEAUTY

I've been meaning to write about this blush for a ridiculously long time... I actually purchased this way back when my boyfriend took me to Paris in February. I got this in the Flagship Chanel store on Rue Cambon, after I'd been eyeing it up for ages. Im not sure if its available in the UK so when I saw it in person I swiftly parted with my money!


20 September 2014

Roll On Scent // Diptyque Eau Rose

BEAUTY

I love anything rose scented, so when I saw this cute roll on scent by diptyque I just had to have it! My excuse for purchasing yet another perfume is that it's only a teeny one and it's perfect for travel.


16 September 2014

Staying Power // Laura Mercier Foundation Primer

BEAUTY

What can I say… this primer gives some serious staying power to your make-up! I actually have a back up of this - that's when you know you love a product. It feels moisturising and velvety and helps any foundation and other face products I use stay put all day.


13 September 2014

Subtle Tan // The Body Shop Honey Bronzer

BEAUTY

This bronzer has been one of my summer staples this year! It's recommended on so many blogs as being the perfect bronzer for paler skin tones so I thought what the heck, and went ahead and ordered, even though I have quite a few other bronzing products!


12 September 2014

Beach Hair // Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray, Thickening Dryspun Finish Spray + Full Form Mousse

BEAUTY

One of my favourite ways to have my hair is in loose natural beachy waves and these three products make hair styling in the mornings so effortless, quick and easy!


1 September 2014

Sun Screen for the Face // Avene + Eucerin - Factor 50

BEAUTY

So I'm currently on holiday in Croatia and thought it would be a good time to test out a couple of sun cream testers that I've had hanging around! They're both factor 50 which is what I like to use for face rather than body.


22 August 2014

Stay All Day // By Terry Ombre Blackstar Cream Eyeshadow Stick - Frozen Quartz

BEAUTY

These cream eye-shadow sticks from By Terry are raved about so often by beauty bloggers, I thought it was high time I got my hands on one and tested it out for myself!


20 August 2014

Creamy Candy // Lush Bubble Bar

BEAUTY

I think this was one of the first ever products I purchased from Lush, and I've bought it a fair few times since! This is definiteley the item I would buy on a whim as a little treat to myself if I was walking past Lush.

A Hint of Colour // By Terry Baume de Rose Nutri-Couleur

BEAUTY

I've always had the original cult favourite By Terry Baume de Rose on my wish list, but at £35.00 for 10g I never quite managed to part with my money. This being said, By Terry has released six new lip balms, each with a subtle tint of colour; which unfortunately for my bank balance has caused me to finally part with my money…


15 August 2014

Rose Gold Glow // Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Or Rose

BEAUTY

This pretty highlighter from Yves Saint Laurent is part of their new Rose Glow Collection, which is currently exclusive to Boots. I've always wanted to try out the Touche Eclat, but always found it hard to justify the price tag. This being said, bringing out a rose gold limited edition is an easy way to get me to part with my money…


5 August 2014

Summer Skin // Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi Colour Powder

BEAUTY

This is a bit of a late post as this powder has been out for quite a while, but i really wanted to blog about it, because it's just so darn beautiful! I have to confess, I may be a little biased due to a ridiculous obsession for all things Chanel, but it really does give glowing, subtly bronzed skin in a flash.

Beauty Basics // Mac Paintpot Groundwork

BEAUTY

This may not be the most flashy, exciting colour, but this little pot more than makes up for it in usefulness. It's a brown, neutral, almost matte cream shadow, which can be used on eyes as a primer or a gorgeous everyday your eyes but better look.


2 June 2014

Spring Cheeks // Clinique Berry Pop

BEAUTY

Ok, I won't lie, the pretty packaging of this blush definitely influenced this purchase. The intricate flower design is so beautiful, I almost couldn't bear to put my brush to it. Luckily this is a relatively hard powder blush, so although it does look as if it could be a cream at first glance; I hardly made a dent in the design upon first use.


28 April 2014

Make Your Eyeshadow Last // Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

BEAUTY

I got a small sample of this with my purchase of the original naked palette and loved it so much that I purchased the full size version when it ran out. I can't stress how amazing this is! I use it every time I wear eyeshadow (which is near enough every day) and it just doesn't budge ever. Before I discovered this my eyeshadow always creased with a couple of hours no matter what I wore, but I literally never have that problem now.


25 April 2014

Tom Ford Lip Colour Sheer // Pink Dune

BEAUTY

This is my first ever Tom Ford product! It's from the Spring 2014 make-up collection, so I'm a tad late posting this, although almost all of the lip colour sheers are still available. It was a tough decision to make as to which colour I should get, with some of the other brighter colours fighting for my attention, but ultimately I don't own anything quite the same as this shade of lipstick.


20 April 2014

An Easter Treat // Lush Golden Egg Bathbomb/Melt

BEAUTY

Happy Easter everyone! I celebrated by using this bath bomb-melt combo, in the form of a golden egg this morning. This was specially created for Easter by Lush and I couldn't resist - anything glittery has the power to call to me.



15 April 2014

Your Lips But Better // Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector

BEAUTY

I had a few Debenhams points to spend and my favourite nude sheer lipstick/ balm was running low (Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy if you were wondering) - thus hello Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in the shade 06 Rosewood Shimmer!


9 April 2014

Get The Glow // Topshop Glow Highlighter + Cream Highlighter Palette

BEAUTY

On a recent shopping trip I popped into Topshop and noticed this little pot of cuteness and couldn't resist! I already own the glow pot highlighter in polish, a subtle silvery pink, so when I saw that topshop had made a rose gold version called gleam I had to have it.


8 April 2014

A Paris Purchase // Diptyque Rosamundi Candle

LIFESTYLE

After burning this candle regularly for around a month I thought it was time to review it. I'd been lusting over diptyque for so long, but with so many candles to choose from, I never got round to making a purchase. That was until I saw this particular candle - Rosamundi.


4 April 2014

Lip Therapy // EOS Lip Balm Pomegranate + Raspberry

BEAUTY

I'd always wanted to try one of these ridiculously cute egg shaped lip balms, and now that they're more accessable in the UK I wanted to share my thoughts.


3 April 2014

Beauty Accessories // H&M Make-up Sponge + Tweezers

BEAUTY

Just a quick review today on a couple of things I picked up whilst browsing in H&M. I was intrigued by the make-up sponge as I've been meaning to try the beauty blender for so long now and just look at how cute the pink tweezers are!


2 April 2014

Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil

BEAUTY

I'd been eyeing up this oil for quite a while due to lots of positive reviews, so about a month ago I decided to bite the bullet and try it out. This is a face and body oil which can be used on scars, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles.

A Romantic Trip To Paris...

PLACES

I'm currently writing this from Paris! My boyfriend booked a surprise holiday for me for my 21st birthday, how romantic! It's amazing here, we arrived yesterday and we've done so much! Yesterday we travelled into Charles De Gaulle Airport, and arrived at our hotel next to the Eiffel Tower mid afternoon. We then walked to the Arc de Triomphe and down the Champs Elyees, stopping at Laduree for some macarons.

A Few New Beauty Purchases

BEAUTY

So I went shopping today in town and bought a few new beauty products I've never tried before, so I thought I'd share my thoughts on them...


18 February 2014

Soft Skin // Soap & Glory - The Righteous Butter

BEAUTY

I was given this body butter as a Christmas present from my boyfriends mom, but only recently started using it. I'll start off by saying I love the packaging! It's so cute and retro, plus it's pink - who doesn't love a bit of pink?


1 January 2014

Glowing Skin // Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder + Retractable Kabuki Brush

BEAUTY

Chanel Les Beiges healthy glow sheer powder is part of the Les Beiges De Chanel range, which here in the UK was released 15th March and consists of five powder shades, ranging from the palest (10) to the darkest (50), plus a retractable kabuki brush, designed for use with the powder.
