My Elf Haul..

Friday, 27 May 2011

So today I received the few bits I ordered from E.L.F (!
The main things I love about E.L.F is the quick delivery, when its standard! Its expected that I should receive the package in 3-5 working days, but always get it maximum 2 days! & Secondly, the quality of the products! A few are hit and miss, but for the price, its amazing value for money, and I think that most is amazing quality!

First up its the Studio Eyeliner & Eyeshadow Sticks!
These first caught my eye as I received an email saying they were going to be £1 for 24hours instead of the usual price of £3.50, and sadly a girl like me cant keep away for a bargain!, so I ordered one in every colour!
Colours are:
Pearl/Glow, Black/Smoke, Brown/Basic, Green/Moss, Plum/Purple & Midnight/Blue. (Swatches Coming Soon).

What E.L.F Says about them:

Achieve color intensity for your eyes with twist-up ease (no sharpening required)! Glide on the dark soft gel “liner” to create dramatic definition to the eyes. The light-reflecting pigments help line the eye subtly but intensely for a fuller more enhanced effect. Use the smooth glide “shadow” stick for soft highlighting color on the eyes to complement the liner for a polished and finished look

Studio Complete Coverage Concealers

These also caught my eye, I have a few E.L.F concealers already but I wanted something with a little more coverage. For £3.50 I thought I had to try them! I bought them in Light & Medium Shades. (Review Coming Soon)

What E.L.F Say:
Savvy beauty shoppers rejoice—now there is no need to buy new concealer from season to season for meeting the different needs your skin tone may have. e.l.f. introduces a sleek quad compact filled with four brilliant, customizable concealers ranging from light, medium and dark shades. A must have for anyone’s makeup kit these highly pigmented, professionally formulated concealers offer ultimate coverage to disguise a range of boo-boos and flaws including blemishes, dark circles, redness and uneven skin-tone for a flawless, makeup artist finish!

Clarins Skin Illusion Foundation

Wednesday, 20 April 2011

Hello Lovelies!

Today I received a sample of Clarins Skin Illusion Foundation in Wheat, and just thought I would do a mini review on it.

What Clarins say:
At the heart of the formula are mineral and plant extracts chosen for their sheerness and affinity with the skin. The result: an incredibly beautiful, radiant and even complexion with a translucent finish that leaves skin feeling moisturized and super-comfortable.

Well, I have to say, its gorgeous! I started to apply it with a foundation brush, and my skin looked amazing, it was very light but a full coverage too? and the colour was such a good match! I also found it made my skin feel really silky and smooth too! After a whole day's wear, It hadnt moved off my face, and no touch up were required either which is quite a shock! I find in hot weather my foundation tends to come off and be quite patchy which I hate with a passion, but this didnt!! It also has an added spf 10 which in summer is really good!

Its priced at £24 on the Clarins Website, and it also comes in 10 shades! You can find the product here. Clarins are also offering free postage for 4 days at the moment too! :-)

A little pick me up..

Tuesday, 22 March 2011

Hello again :-) This is just a little post to tell you about my purchases when I needed a little pick me up today! I have to say I am a massive fan of Soap&Glory and honestly couldnt resist the 3 for 2 offer currently on at Boots and I picked up:

The Daily Smooth Body Butter

'An amazingly-effective dry skin formula body butter with rosehip seed oil and cocoa butter scented with Mist You Madly's™ beautiful notes of bergamot, blackcurrant, magnolia, freesia, vanilla and musk.'

I was first drawn to this because I really was generally looking for a new body moisteriser and I absolutely adore the smell of Vanilla & Blackcurrents! Upon smelling, it just smells amazing and I honestly could not stop sniffing it since buying it! ;-)

Price wise, its £8.43 ( for 250ml of product, which to me is rather reasonable! I have to say I absolutely can not wait to give this product a real test run!

The Breakfast Scrub

Don’t skip...THE BREAKFAST SCRUB™ Oat, Shea Butter & Sugar Body Smoother, with a new Maple Fragrance!

I Have been wanting/craving/needing this product for so long, I have read so many reviews and quite simply it smells amazing! You Get 300ml for £9.45 which again I think is so reasonable!

Sexy Mother Pucker Lipgloss
In Clear

Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker® Lip Gloss, a new extreme formula lip plumping gloss, with scientifically proven plumping superfill microspheres that explode in volume up to 10x when they come in contact with the water. They're like tiny, dehydrated little sponges that expand when you put them onto your lips.

I have previously bought Sexy Mother Pucker XL Extreme and absolutely loved it! & ofcourse, going in backwards order, I had to purchase the original product too! You get 7ml for £8.43 and I have to say, I am pretty dubious when it comes to lipglosses, especially plumping ones, but this product is truely amazing!

So there you have ladies ;-)
What brands do you love?

Gingers & Gypsys

Saturday, 19 March 2011

Well, this is my second post and its more of a personal tone to what I wanted it to be! I'm currently staring at alot of make up, brushes & bags I ordered and purchased all waiting for a blog post of their own! But more important topics are to be discussed.

The first one being gypsys! Now you are probably thinking what a strange topic but infact its more on the subject of tattoos than gypsys themselves. You see on monday I had my beautiful gypsy design tattooed onto my thigh, and I've got to say, I LOVE her so much!!
The Lovely Lady Herself!

Second topic of the eve, is gingers! Another strange topic you say?! Well.. I like exciting & different hair, I like being bright and different! What has this to do with ginger you say? Well.. after being bright red/pink I went a more 'acceptable' reddy purple and after two weeks, I got rather bored, so for summer I thought I would start lightening up! So I used the oh so magical B4 Colour remover and the results where shocking! (shockingly good :p) but yes.. on things being different I thought I would like to be ginger, and walaaa I am now a marvellous Ginger Colour and I love it!!



Thats it for now lovelys!
What are your opinions on tattoos and gingers? :)
