The 2014 Beauty Favourites


I haven’t written anything on this blog for a very long time, and I have absolutely no excuses. I’ve got so many half finished drafts saved, but the longer I left posting them, the more intimidating finishing them seemed- but I couldn’t let 2014 end without writing up a little something about my favourite products of the year. (Actually, the writing part of this post is almost over now. I’m still quite nervous)

DSCF4240

Rimmel Match Perfection- pretty much the only foundation I’ve been wearing this year. 010 Porcelain is actually light enough for me, which makes a lovely change, and the coverage is kind of light/ medium, but buildable. I plan to branch out a bit, foundation wise, in 2015 but I actually have a spare bottle of this hiding in the back of my makeup drawer.

The Body Shop Honey Bronzer- another pale skin saviour! This bronzer is completely matte (so great for contouring), and you can go pretty heavy handed with this stuff without looking too bronzed. I use it with the Real Techniques Blush Brush [not pictured].

The Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette- obviously. I honestly cannot gush about this palette enough, so I’m just going to sneakily link you to my review and swatches post.

Sleek Blush Trio in ‘Lace’- I’m not really an big blusher fan (I’m working on it!) but this palette has been one of my most reached for makeup items this year. I’ve been using the red shade on pretty much every makeup wearing day, but they’re so pigmented that I’ve not even dented the pan. Review and swatches here.

L’oread Miss Manga Mascara in Purple- a new addition, but a very welcome one. I don’t really love mascara, and I’m actually completely clueless when it comes to what makes a mascara good (I know I like Benefit They’re Real and Soap&Glory Thick and Fast…help?) but the slightly purple tint to this one is what I love. It’s just something a little bit different, and helps towards making my, honestly, swamp coloured eyes look just a little bit more like hazel.

MAC Lipsticks in ‘Patisserie’ and ‘Plumful’- I’m honestly not sure I need any other lipsticks. These are just beautiful, and I’m not going to say much more because one of the many previously mentioned drafts may well turn into a MAC lipstick swatch-a-thon.

Soap&Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Sticks- I tend to think of these as MAC Lipsticks in gloss form. The smell like vanilla, have medium, but pretty colour payoff and they last really nicely. I actually have a series of posts about lip crayons, these included, which is right here.

Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Skin Protectant- the best lip balm ever, and a little goes a long way.  It’s also great for really dry skin and as a cuticle conditioner.

Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers- I’m not sure where I’d be without these. I have very straight eyelashes, and at my healthiest and most awake I look a bit dead (I’m coming across really well in this post) but these go a long way towards fixing that!

Carmex Lip Balms- another new discovery! The formula of these lip balms is actually quite similar to the Skin Protectant, but these smell a little nicer and are much more convenient for throwing in your handbag (or pockets. Or both. Out of interest, how many lip balms normally leave the house with you?).

The Body Shop Hemp Hand Cream- this might be the only hand cream I’ve ever used that is super nourishing, but not sticky. I’ve been using this hand cream nightly for almost a year now, and I’ve only gone through two of the full sized bottles, so it’s a really worthwhile buy. The packaging could be better- the lid isn’t the most convenient if you’re on the go, it’s definitely a bedside table thing- but it’s really the product that counts.

Manuka Doctor Skincare- that’s the Blemish Cream in the picture above, but I’ve been testing out a few products in the anti-blemish range recently (about two months) and I’ve been loving them. Skincare is definitely one of my new years resolutions (I actually hate new years resolutions and refuse to make any, but I promise I will get better at skin care!) and this range is at the top of my list of things to write a post about.

Thanks for reading! I’m going to try and get back to blogging a little bit more regularly in 2015- as I’ve been typing I’ve had a few ideas for posts that I’m actually looking forward to writing which I’m very happy about. I feel like I’ve missed loads, I didn’t even ramble about Naked Basics 2 (got it, love it, not as thrilled with the colour selection and eyeshadow quality as I was with Naked Basics, though)!

I hope you had a great year, feel free to tell me all about your favourite beauty products from 2014 in the comments! MAC Lipstick recs are also welcome, I’m obsessed again. Also blushers! What are your favourites?

Oooh look it’s all of my favourite makeup brands conveniently put together in one post.

MAC Syrup £15– one of my favourite MAC lipsticks ever. It looks really purple in the bullet and swatches, but on the lips it’s a perfect medium, rosy pink.

Soap&Glory Glow All Out £11– a pink toned highlighting and setting powder. This powder is absolutely beautiful when lightly dusted over the high points of the face, or used with a powder brush all over to set foundation.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Blush £7.99– I love Bourjois’ little round pot blushes- they’re not the most pigmented or long lasting I’ve ever tried, but they leave a really beautiful healthy, glowing finish. The shade ‘Healthy Mix’ is gorgeous, but I also love ‘Peach Bloom’ for a more natural look.

Urban Decay Naked 3 £37– I’ve fallen in love with this palette all over again. I’ve been using ‘Strange’ as a base colour, ‘Dust’ all over the lid and then ‘Limit’ in the crease and blended up just a little and the colours just look so pretty!

I’ve been wearing very natural looking makeup at the moment- so not the most exciting of posts but I have been loving all of the products I’ve been using. A lot of these are new (which you might remember from one of my more recent haul posts?) and I’ve been using them pretty much every single day since I bought them. *I’ll be updating my favourites soon for a more Spring-esque look, so if pastel colours are your thing then stick around for my next ‘Currently Loving’ post.*

I’ve been starting out with the Bourjois Happy Light Matte Primer, which is lovely because it’s not too intense but it keeps most of my natural oiliness at bay. I’ve then been buffing on some Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer with the Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush on just the areas where I tend to have redness and spots- using this brush with the Collection concealer gives a really natural looking but full coverage finish, which makes a perfect base for the L’Oreal Nude Magique Eau de Teint Foundation. This foundation is very light coverage but it’s so easy to build, and it literally will not go cakey. When this was first released I was adamant that I didn’t want it, but now I’ve tried it it’s definitely one of my favourite foundations. It feels like a very light powder on the skin, but looks like absolutely nothing while still giving me a little bit of coverage. I’ve even looked at this in natural sunlight with one of those horribly unflattering magnifying mirrors and it’s honestly invisible. My only problem with this is that it’s ever so slightly too dark, but I can get away with it because I normally only use one or two drops. I blend this foundation in with my fingertips, but I like to just double check that everything is blended with my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. 

At this point in the makeup application, everything looks a little bit too matte, so I’ve been using just a teeny, tiny bit of the Bourjois Java Rice Powder on the high points of my face. It leaves a really pretty, natural looking sheen- nothing too sparkly. Next, I’ve been using the Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder very lightly around the outside of my face with a Real Techniques Blush Brush, just to put a little bit of colour back in my face after using the high coverage concealer. I love this blush for bronzer, you can read all about that here, if you want.

For eyes, I have literally just been dabbing W.O.S from the Urban Decay Naked Basics (review) palette all over my eyelid to hide the redness or veins, and then I’ve been using Venus to highlight my brow bone and inner corner. Very lazy, but it just makes everything look that teeny bit more perfected. For my lips, I either use MAC Syrup which is a beautiful, neutral plum colour or a Revlon Lip Butter (reviewin Macaroon. Both are really pretty natural colours, which just give a little bit more than most my-lips-but-better shades.

What do you use for no-makeup makeup looks?

I haven’t written a post in a while so I thought I’d do a little ‘FOTD’ kind of thing. I guess this is kind of like a makeup favourites post too because these are the products I’ve been using pretty much everyday for the past couple of weeks. I hope this is kind of interesting! –

First of all, I use a tiny amount of Becca Ever Matte Perfecting Primer just on my nose and chin, applied with my fingertips. I’ve never really been big on primers but this is honestly the only thing that calms down my super-oily skin, especially at this time of year. I then use a little bit of Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation with a Real Techniques Stippling Brush– this foundation is super-pale, doesn’t oxidise and has a lovely satin finish. I’m thinking it’s probably one of my all time favourite foundations, even compared to my more expensive options. The Stippling Brush is amazing, too. I sometimes find that if I have a spot and I just try and apply foundation with my fingertips (or even the RT Buffing and Expert Face Brushes), the product will kind of settle around the spot, but not cover it. The Stippling Brush, however, is magical and creates an airbrushed but very light coverage finish. Next, I use The Body Shop Honey Bronzer in Fair to do a little bit of contouring with the Real Techniques Contour Brush. This bronzer is amazing for fairer-skinned girls because it’s matte, pale and slightly cool toned. Love. Next up is eyes, and first of all for eyes, I use the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers to sort out my poker straight eyelashes, then I work a little Maybelline Color Tattoo (review) in Permanent Taupe onto my eyelid and the blend it out at the edges with the Real Techniques Duo Fibre Eye Brush. If I’m being really fancy, I’ll then tight line my eyes with Maybelline Gel Liner and my Fash Eyeliner Brush– I’ve found this is so much better than tight lining with a pencil because it literally does not budge (but that’s nothing a little olive oil on a q-tip at the end of the day can’t fix). I then take some of Mudhoney (matte brown, review) from the Soap&Glory Lid Stuff quad on the back of my hand, mix it with a teeny tiny bit of Vaseline and then use the Fash Angled Liner Brush to add a little shape to my eyebrows. Finally, I’ve been loving a little bit of MAC Patisserie which is a beautiful pink-brown nude  (I’ve found this is perfect if your natural lips are quite pigmented for just toning things down a little) and then sometimes using a teeny bit of Soap&Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in Nudist for a little bit of shine.

Holy crap this post turned out longer than I expected.

If you like this kind of post then please let me know! I was thinking of making it a monthly thing as a way to remind myself to mix up my everyday routine. Have you tried any of the products I mentioned?

Lip Colours | Autumn Favourites


I was going to do this post a month ago- I swear. The official start of Autumn was the 22nd ish of September…wasn’t it? I don’t know, but that’s when this post was supposed to be up. But apparently, I had to buy another seven purple lip products since then- online shopping- argh! This, for me, is definitely the best time of year for lipstick. I love the pretty berry tones and socially-acceptable reds, and I think that Autumn is great for the warm shades. You know, how Winter is like, bright reds and stuff, Spring is baby pink, Summer is bright orange, and Autumn is berry purple. That’s literally my annual lipstick code. So…yeah. Intro done (ish).

Image

1. Clinique Chubby Stick Intense- Grandest Grape

Image

 This is a really nice one to start with, because Grandest Grape is the most perfect, pure Autumn purple. It’s a beautiful shade, whether it’s worn to it’s full opacity or as a sheer, glossy stain. I really love the Intense range of the Chubby Sticks- I’m planning on buying Mightiest Maraschino very soon.

 2. Soap&Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick- Plum Jam

 Image

   The Soap&Glory lip crayons are one of my favourite lip products ever- particularly this shade. I’m not one to wear lip gloss, I totally hate the stuff and even have trouble with the lovely Rimmel Apocalips, but these have that lovely lip-glossy look, without being sticky or heavy. This is a really pretty, purple/ dark pink and it’s a perfect warm, everyday autumn colour. Also, it smells like vanilla. Yummy.

 3. Mac Lipstick- Plumful (Lustre)

Image

   I only brought my first Mac lipstick about three months ago- I chose Plumful and now I am so, so glad I did. At the time, I didn’t really feel like wearing a purple lip colour (purple lips scream Autumn, oversized sweaters and hot chocolate to me) but now it’s absolutely perfect. You can read my full review of it here, but basically, it’s a lovely medium purple which can be worn as almost-sheer to almost-opaque.

 4. Revlon Lip Butter- Red Velvet

Image

    The first of the red toned lip colours in this post is absolutely gorgeous. Red Velvet is a deep red wine colour –almost burgundy actually- which always makes me think of Christmas. I know, I know, it’s October. BUT CHRISTMAS! As this is one of the darker lip butter shades, it has lovely pigmentation and the sheen of a lip balm.

5. Revlon Lip Butter- Sugar Plum

Image

This lip butter is another purple shade (I might have a problem) but this one looks more like a dark pink with a kind of purple warmth to it. Does that make sense? I feel like this is a more pigmented, less glossy version of Plum Jam. It’s very pretty- another everyday, daytime lip colour.

 6. Revlon Lip Butter- Tutti Frutti

Image

 This isn’t exactly the sort of colour that comes to mind when I think of Autumn, but Tutti Frutti is an awesome Halloween- pumpkin shade. It’s very bright, but I guess I need to get out of the berry-lips-for-Autumn mindset. This is definitely orange, so it’s not going to look too peachy and Summery. It would be a nice pick-me-up for a particularly miserable, cold day, too.

7. Maybelline Baby Lips- Cherry Me

Image

    The name says it all- Cherry. This is a really gorgeous colour, my favourite of the Baby Lips range. If you haven’t tried these yet, go and pick this one up for £2.99. You can’t go wrong- it’s a great everyday, throw-it-in-your-handbag lip balm.

 8. Vaseline- Paint the Town Red

Image

   Speaking of lip balm- the new Vaseline! *And still, I haven’t picked up that bloody pink and black one, argh*. I saw this in Boots a few days ago, and I was like, woah- a red tinted lip balm? Favourite thing ever. As it turns out, this is just very slightly pink, but it’s lovely all the same for those days where you really can’t be bothered (most days for me). And it smells like Ribena, which is awesome.

9. Rimmel Colour Rush Balm- Keep Mauving

Image

 One of the newer additions to my ever-growing collecction of lip crayons (yes, it is getting out of hand, thanks for asking)  are a couple of these Colour Rush Balms. They smell like vanilla, and this one, Keep Mauving, is lovely. It’s a very dark plum, which has slight brown tones to it. It’s kind of vampy, in a neutral way. It would like pretty awesome with gold eyeliner, I think.

 10. Mua Power Pout- Crazy in Love

Image

   Don’t be fooled by the purple packaging and actual lipstick bullet- this is definitely what I would classify as a red. It’s dark, but it’s definitely red. It’s very pretty, has a minty scent and for only £3, it’s a great affordable lip colour. It’s really shiny too, which I love, and it definitely feels like a balm with the pigmentation of lipstick. Just as a side note- don’t leave one of these in your car or handbag, it’s very melt-y, and the packaging isn’t fantastic.

So that is my top-10 list of lip colours for Autumn! As I’ve been writing this, I’ve realised there are another fifteen lip products I could have put into this post, so I think I’ll have to do a Winter-Top-10 too.

Thanks for reading, what are your favourite lip products for this time of year? Have you tried any on my list?

MAC Lipstick- First Impressions part2


STORYTIME

Ok, I ordered these two lipsticks from MAC a few weeks ago, and everything was fine, and they arrived about two days later which is awesome. ‘On Hold’ was great, and then I opened the other one (Plumful) and it was broken and looked used. I emailed MAC twice, saying that this wasn’t acceptable and I want a replacement, etc, and got no reply. So, we called them, they asked us to send them a photo of the broken lipstick, and then they were really nice and exchanged it. So, all is good, but I thought I’d let you know why it’s taken me so long to review this:)

I didn’t say it was going to be a good story, ok?

Image

Isn’t that just the most beautiful colour ever? I’m really obsessed with purple lip colours, because I find it’s one of the few shades I can wear that looks ‘natural’. I don’t mean my natural lip colour is purple, I mean it doesn’t make me look washed out or fake or anything.

Colour

Like I mentioned, it’s beautiful. It’s a plum-coloured purple (Plumful- a name that actually makes sense?!? SHOCK.), which doesn’t have any shimmer or anything which I’m really glad about. There’s not much I can say about it other than the fact that it is my favourite lipstick now, ever, because it’s beautiful.

051

This is what the colour looks like when it’s just been applied, built up, and should you happen to draw a heart with it.

Formula

Plumful is a lustre. I have no idea how that’s supposed to be different, but I just find it’s less opaque than the cremesheen, but it’s more buildable and wearable and feels less like you’re wearing lipstick. I really like it, but I’m not sure if all lustre-finish lipsticks from MAC are the same, or if I just love the colour of this one so much that I’m willing to overlook any faults it has;)

Duration

I’d say it lasts a couple of hours when, like I mentioned last time, you just throw it on, but with a lipliner and blotting and all that boring crap it would probably last about four or five hours. It all fades really nicely, too, so it’s not going to leave you with blotchy lips, particularly if you’re lips are naturally dark like mine.

Packaging

See previous post. Pretty;)

Image

Image

Price

See last post. I just can’t even talk about this again, because the price has annoyed me so much;)

Scent

Oooh, new category. Only because I’ve just remembered it smells like vanilla, which is a bit strong at first but it does fade and smell nice.

Overall

Love it love it love it love it. I just love the colour so much that I can’t not love it:)

Let me know if you’ve tried this one! And let me know what your favourite MAC lip colour is, I had a couple of really great recommendations on my last post;)

MAC Lipstick- First Impressions part1


Back to blogging with a reallyreallyreally good post!:) I mean, the actual post isn’t going to be that great. I mean the product because it’s beautiful;)

Image

This is (confession) my first ever MAC product. Ever. Which is really weird when you consider what an obsessive freak I am, but I’ve always been hesitant to buy one lipstick for (wait for it) £15, when I could get possibly three ‘normal’ lipsticks for that. I’m not saying I’m against high-end-ish products because I’m absolutely not and I love them, but I’m still building up my makeup collection, and I guess I’d prefer to do that with loads (accurate description) of slightly cheaper items, than one or two more expensive items. Rambling now, so I’ll get into the review.

Colour

As you might of guessed from my oh-so-clever photo editing^, this lipstick is called On Hold. I have no idea why, but that’s not really important;) It’s basically a raspberry toned pink/red, which does look like it has the slightest hint of gold sparkle in it. Luckily, this doesn’t show up as glitter per se, it just makes the lipstick a little bit brighter and more light-reflective, I think.

Image

It isn’t completely opaque in one coat, the top colour in this^ picture is one coat, but then you layer it up and you get it to the point of almost being red. That’s not really showing up in this picture, but you get my idea.

Formula

On Hold is a cremesheen, and to be honest I haven’t tried enough other MAC lipsticks to really know what that means, but it looks really moisturised, I guess. I mean, it’s not glossy, it’s not even shiny, it kind of looks like a matte lipstick with a lip balm over the top. But even though it looks moisturising, I find it does end up feeling a little heavy on the lips after a while, but it does seem to stay looking the same.

Duration

I haven’t worn it a lot, to be honest, but from what I can tell it lasts really nicely. It doesn’t do that REALLY REALLY ANNOYING thing that some lipsticks do, which is fade from the centre of the lips but leave a beautifully attractive lip-liner-esque look. It all fades equally, after maybe three or four hours without eating. And that’s not even with proper application, if you used a lipliner, a lipbrush and did the blotting thing, you could probably get it to last a lot longer.

Packaging

The packaging is, basically, really nice and professional. I like the slightly sparkly black tube, and the fact that it comes in a box* and everything. Apparently, one picture isn’t enough:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Apparently 2 or 3 photos isn’t enough either. I’ll stop now, because I’m boring you;)

*Does anyone else have this problem with makeup that comes in boxes, where the very pretty expensive looking box is taking up too much room, but you can’t bear to part with it or even store it somewhere else because then your product won’t be ‘complete’? That isn’t just me, is it?

Price

OK, this is the deal-breaker. This lipstick was £15, which, like I mentioned before, is a ridiculous amount of money for one product. When I used to stalk MAC products when I was, like, 10, I swear these were little over £10. Saying that, they must be worth it because I am planning on buying more. I might be insane?

Overall

Loving this. I’ve got a really lip product obsession going on at the moment (you’ll see). Love the colour, love the finish, love the packaging, just lovelovelovelove. And there’s a part 2! Yay! That probably won’t be up for a while though, but I’ll explain that soon;) If you want to see another review/ first impressions post on a MAC lipstick, check out Cassidy’s post about Creme D’Nude and like and follow while you’re there!:)

I hope you liked this post! Please recommend me some MAC products to try, too- the website is so overwhelming but I really want to build up my collection;D

I’m going to try and post more often, too. The past week or so I just haven’t been able to think of anything to post, but I’ve been on a little (‘little’ being the operative word) spending spree, to celebrate the fact that my ‘spending ban’ is over. I know. I’m an idiot. I’ve also been feeling a bit ill, because *hot* weather (even though I love it) always makes me really down and hulk-esque. It’s like the opposite of SAD.

I really haven’t come across well in this post have I?!
