The most famous Mac lipstick...

Since, apparently, this is Kylie Jenner's favourite "go to" lipstick, I obviously needed it in my collection. My friend actually convinced me to get it because she loves it and she always makes great lipstick choices and it's true! I love it, for some reason I thought it would be too brown for me but it's actually a really pretty nude shade. It definitely has more of a peachy undertone rather than a pink one, which isn't as flattering on teeth whiteness but it definitely suits more skin tones. I think this lipstick would actually look amazing on most people. It's just one of those really universal shades that everyone needs in their collection! Join the hype!

A Bashful Blush...

I have a very love/hate relationship with blush, I always have. I'm definitely more of a bronzer over blush girl but with this sharp cold weather snap I'm enjoying more of a naturally cold flush look. Now, I'm not talking a red, patchy, snotty colour, I'm talking a slightly pink tan.
Introducing Clinique's Bashful Blush. I had this used on me by the Clinique make up artist and fell in love. It's perfect for girls like me, who need a little less tan, a little more blush. There's a very subtle sliver shimmer running through it, which catches the winter sun so perfectly.

Long time, no see...

Hello Stranger...

So, as I'm sure you all can tell, I have been MIA for almost a year now. I needed a break and the last 6+ months have been very busy for me and unfortunately that left no time for blogging. I'm hoping to be back on top with blogging. I really enjoy it and I obviously love make up so I'm hoping to get back on top with it, slowly but surely. 
Wish me luck!

What's On My Face #6

Face - I have been keeping it simple with my base recently. I have a few products that I've been loving and I've been sticking to those for a really flawless effortless finish. I have been using the Clinique Anti-blemish foundation religiously ever since I first bought it. It's a medium coverage foundation which is buildable but still remains light. Then on top of that, on the cheeks, I've been using Clinique's Blush in the shade Bashful Blush. It's a really stunning shade, inbetween blush and a bronzer. It just looks really effortless and it's really flattering on my complexion. 

Brows - I've gone back to an old love for my brows. The HD brows kit in Foxy has the perfect ashy shade in for my brows and using an angle brush to get the perfect arch makes my brows look incredible. Over the top of that I use the Maybelline Brow Drama in Medium to keep them in place and add some needed warmth back into them. 

Eyes - I've also been keeping it fairly simple on my lids too, using one shade all over the lid for that worn in edgy smokey eye. I owned the Mac Pro longwear shadow in Make Your Mark for ages and never used it until a few months ago and ever since then I have not been able to get enough of it. It's a really deep matte brown shade with a hint of purple running through it. It makes brown eyes really stand out and look sexy/smouldering. Then I go for the extra smokey factor with liner in the water liner and a catwing liner on top. Then lashings of mascara with the new Benefit Roller Lash for extra wow and curl. 

Lips - Finally, still keeping it simple I applied a simple gloss in a browny pink shade, keeping it muted to keep the eyes doing the talking. This is the Bourjois gloss in Brun Rose. It's really pretty but without being too over powering.

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara - Review...

Hollllaaa, I'm back. I've had some well deserved time off and now I'm refreshed and determined to get back on it. I've been off blogging for a couple months and a lot have changed over that time, including my eye lashes. I always had the view that my eye lashes were really short and falsies were my only option but I sacked off applying them daily and have gotten back into mascaras. It's all about getting the right mascara to really give the most to your lashes. So with all that in mind I thought I'd pick up the new Benefit Roller Lash Mascara. My main need in a mascara is length so I thought this would be perfect. 
Overall, I do really like this mascara, it really gives me length and the right amount of volume too. The brush is perfect to get into those roots but without poking your eyes out. It works for both top and bottom lashes which makes it great for traveling and keeping those products down. I probably will be buying this mascara again, I do really like it. I massively prefer it over the "They're Real" mascara but I still suffer the same sort of issues as "They're Real" and that's that it smudge on my eye lids, which is annoying. However I battle this issue by just doing a coat of water proof mascara over the top which stops it from smudging. It claims that you don't need to curl your lashes when you use this, which I wouldn't agree with but I do think it holds a curl once you have curled your lashes. For the price tag, I do think there are better drugstore alternatives out there but so far, as a mascara reuser, I'm happy with this. It fulfills my mascara needs. 

Have you tried this mascara? I'd love to hear your opinion too.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque in Appechissant 01 - Review...

I am absolutely in love with the Maybelline Coloursensational Elixirs so when Bourjois bought these out I was desperate to try them out. I purchased the shade Appechissant 01, it's the perfect mix of peach and pink so right up my alley. I had high hopes for these but to be honest I'm not massively keen. The pigmentation is lovely and they feel really light on the lips which is ideal but they have more issues than benefits. It applies rather patchy so I have to rub it in for an even coverage. I can deal with that but it just doesn't last at all, I wouldn't even say it lasts on the lips for an hour so it's pretty pointless. I was expecting better from this but unfortunately I will not be purchasing anymore of these. The matte version is much better so I will be sticking to them in future.
