Kate for Rimmel




New favourite Lipstick! I bought this a few weeks ago, I wanted a new colour and I wanted it to be a bit darker than my usual colours, I knew that Rimmel were bringing out some new Autumn colours but I just couldn't wait and Ill more than likely buy more when they bring them out anyway. This lipstick is really creamy and lasted on my lips for about 2-3 hours without having to apply a new coat! I was really impressed.

You can get this from Boots and Superdrug for £5.49.

I can't wait to see what new colours they have!

Fashionista Mascara



A couple of weeks ago I went and bought a Fashionista eye palette this meant that I got any mascara for free, I've been using this for about a week now and it has quickly become my favourite mascara I have also been using the base coat as a base coat for my MUAs turquoise mascara I find it really brightens it up.


As you can see one end is the base coat and the other is the top coat, I got it in ultra black because I only ever wear black during the day, this is a really good mascara and seeing as I got it for free I am pleased this turned out to be a good one.

The mascara is £8.00 originally you can get it in Superdrug or here online.




No7 Polish



This is my new favourite nail polish, I only have one other No7 nail polish and its a glitter one so when I saw this colour I thought it was perfect for the Autumn months, I also had a £3.00 off No7 makeup voucher, this took it from £5.50 down to £2.50.
You can get them from Boots Stores or here.

Mine is in Damson Dream and I love it, it has a wide brush so application was easy and like before its a perfect colour for this season. I really recommend this and I will be buying more.

Okay so this is again something I picked up in the Debenhams 10% off in the Beauty department sale, it went down from £30.00 to £27.00 so of course I had to have it in my life seeing as I had wanted it for a good few months.

So I've had this for a week now and I LOVE it, it is defiantly my new favourite Bronzer, I have used it every day now, I can see why everyone was writing such good reviews about this!

All that Glitters is Dior


So I was looking through Debenhams because I was told they were having a sale, when I heard they had 10% off beauty I had to have a look, I fell in love with so much but this really caught my eye because I was going to buy it from boots but they only had the Rose Diamond and I really wanted Amber Diamond!


As you can see the colours you get in this are gorgeous!
I am really happy I ordered this seeing as I wanted it for months!
You can get it here from Selfridges for £32.00
Debenhams have now sold out.


I really love this I haven't used it much yet as I only got it a few days ago and I didn't want to use it before I photographed it for this. Glad I can take full advantage of it now though!

I want the spray on Foundation now. Have you tried it?

Our holiday was lovely and obviously we wished we could have stayed their forever.



Smashbox Cosmetics Review

 


(left- O-Gloss Right- O-Glow.)

When I was on my way back to England on the plane I was looking through the book they had on their and I saw the Smashbox O-Glow and O-Gloss set, I instantly thought I need this in my life! So I bought it, it cost me £25.00 on the plane.
You can buy them both separately from Boots.

O-Glow

Experience instant chemistry as your complexion is transformed from so-so to oh-so-glowing! The clear gel in this intuitive formula reacts with your personal skin chemistry to turn cheeks the colour you blush in just seconds! O-GLOW works on every skin tone, from the lightest to the darkest, to give everyone a customised flush of colour. When applied, your skin's moisture activates the innovative formula, producing a rosy blush. O-GLOW'S revolutionary silicone-based clear gel is easy to blend, fragrance-free, and glides on smoothly for a healthy, glowing blush that's you, only prettier. Winner of Allure Magazine Best of Beauty Reader''s Choice Award for Most Innovative Product, Glam Beauty Editor's Pick Award, and Best of Sephora Award Nominee for Best Blush and Biggest Beauty Breakthrough.

 How To Use O-Glow
On bare skin or over makeup, dab O-GLOW onto cheekbones and blend with fingertips. Watch the reaction as cheeks turn rosy, for a gorgeous blush that lasts all day! You can even apply to lips for a gorgeous lip stain.

O-Gloss

This innovative formula goes on black, gold or clear and then reacts with your personal skin chemistry to instantly transform into your own custom shade. Also try our best-selling, award-winning O-GLOW that turns cheeks the shade you blush naturally!

I have used the O-Gloss so many times since I bought it, it turned my lips a lovely berry shade, I love this product it has defiantly changed my lip gloss ways!
The O-Glow is a lovely product to use although it comes out like the O-Gloss which is a sticky residue but that doesn't bother me too much as once its applied you don't feel it, it turned my cheeks a lovely pinky berry shade.
I love the fact that these two smashbox products turn your lips and cheeks to your own individual shade depending on your skin and lips.

Have you tried these? What did you think?




Vera Wang Princess Night

 

When I was in duty free a week ago, I was looking round the perfumes mainly because a girl can never have enough perfumes (I have around 50 now) oops!
I already wanted this before I went on holiday but on my way back through duty free I saw it was on offer for about £36.00 for 50ml which is great!

You can get it here for £44.50 from The Perfume Shop.

Clinique Turnaround Overnight

  
So the other night I was doing some late night shopping in Tesco and I was looking through some of the magazines and I saw that InStyle had a free gift, they were giving away Clinique with their magazines they had this moisturiser, mascara, lipgloss and something else (sorry couldn't remember.)
So I picked this up as it was the one that stood out to me. It was also only £2.80 for the magazine itself so it was a real bargain!
I think tescos still have this magazine with the Clinique freebies in so go and have a look in your local tescos.
You get 7ml of the product to try and ive been using this product every night for the last week and I still have half of the pot left. It is meant to make your skin look brighter and younger looking overnight, as I have only used this for a week I can't say too much but my face in general has definalty got a glow to it more now.

You can buy the full product here for £34.00 for 50ml.



Moschino



Whilst I was at the airport coming back from Spain last week I was looking around duty free
I was trying to think about what perfumes I wanted when I saw this bottle on the shelf, I had already wanted a Moschino perfume but I couldn't decide which one to get. When I smelt this one I fell in LOVE which is cute because its cause its called 'I Love Love.'
The Bottle is cute and the smell is amazing it smells really fresh and sweet.
I got it for £28.00 from duty free.

Heart notes
Lilt of the valley, tea rose, cinnamon leaves
Top notes
Orange, lemon, grapefruit, redcurrant
Base notes

You can get it here from The Perfume Shop for £29.99.

YSL Touche Eclat



When I was at the airport last week I picked up this YSL Touche Eclat I have wanted this
for ages everyone has said how good it is so I thought seeing as it was cheaper
being in an airport in spain I would get it.
It cost me about £20.00 which is good considering it is £25.00 here from Boots.
When I have used this more I will do a proper review of it!



Trevor Sorbie Beautiful Curls Review*

 So about a month ago I was contacted about trying the Trevor Sorbie Beautiful Curls range, as I was already in love with the curl cream I said YES! 
When I received them I fell in love! I could smell them as soon as I opened the packaging,
I received the Beautiful Curls Shampoo + Conditioner the Curl Constructor and the Beach Hair. 
I have used up all of the shampoo and conditioner due to taking it on holiday with me. I have used the Beach Hair and Curl Constructor a handful of times now but the beach hair is definitely my favourite out of the two.
The shampoo and conditioner have the most gorgeous smell and I really enjoyed using them both on my hair, because I have naturally straight-ish hair I wanted something that would give it a natural curl without having to use heat.
I haven't used heat on my hair in 1 month now! I am so proud of myself.
You can buy the Trevor Sorbie Beautiful curls collection from Boots here.
They are priced at £5.10 each.
The price range for these isn't particularly high because of how good the products are I got about a months use out of the shampoo and conditioner and I am still using the beach hair and curl constructor now!


I want to try the Beautiful Blonde Collection now!

Party
Total= £133.50
I chose this as my party outfit I love the gold
sequined dress, the bag is great for the price,
I always wear ballet pumps on a night out because I'm 5'10
and my boyfriend is only 5'11 and I'd hate to tower over him.
Plus flats are easier to walk in and never hurt!
The Nail varnish is just to finish the outfit off.


Outdoor
Total= £147.49 
For the outdoors I had to think hard about something that
would look good but would still keep me warm, when its
cold so first I thought of jeggings I love the price and I love jeggings they are so comfy. The jumper is a lovely colour and is one I would wear all the time. The coat is one I have wanted for ages but never taken the courage to buy it, but with this outfit I would. The nail varnish is from one of my favourite brands so it was a given. The bag was to add some colour to the outfit and this bag reminds me
of big crunchy red leaves!!!!! The shoes are to  add some character aren't they cute!!!



Office
Total= £195.47

This would be my ideal office outfit, the jeans cami and cardigan are just right for an office environment and then the shoes and bag add a bit of colour to the outfit so its not just all one, the shoes and bracelet are cute and I really love the studs on the shoes they bring edge to this outfit.

First Date
Total= £196.97

I picked the same shoes in this one just in black because I thought they were really cute and edgy, the bracelet adds character to this outfit because I would only want to wear one bracelet and a watch because I love showing my arms off. The dip hem skirt is a perfect colour for romance and love and then the tshirt would work because it has short sleeves for
when the evenings get colder. The handbag would
be the perfect size because I always want to take
alot with me when I go out.




Casual Wear
Total= 143.48

At first I couldn't decide what this outfit category was
supposed to be, but for me it would be casual I hate
wearing tights until its absolutely necessary, so I teamed a fluorescent green dress and a fluorescent orange cardigan together, for me these colours wouldn't usually work but with this it really would! I love it! Then I picked a plain white ostrich effect handbag and a beaded bracelet cuff, but the shoes are my favourite part of this outfit they are clear jelly shoes (So you can still see your nail polish!) with little crystals on them! The nail varnish is silver glitter that just finishes the outfit off!
