Sleek MakeUP True Colour Lipstick in “Vixen” Review

June 3, 2014
sleek-lipstick

I am a terrible person, a terrible person indeed. So terrible in fact, that this lovely lipstick has been sat unopened in my “to review” pile since I bought it about three month’s ago. I was so eager and excited to try the Sleek Lipsticks out and when I finally relented and picked up “Vixen” in a 3 for 2 haul at Superdrug, the least I could have done was give this the time and attention it deserved instead of…

An Accidental Haul Part 2

June 2, 2014
Haul

You know when you really shouldn’t go shopping but you do anyway? Well I blame Pants entirely (and you can see her haul post here!) and can’t be held responsible for my inability to say no to a good bargain shop! As we are both supposed to be saving money for festival season at the moment we limited ourselves to only four shops – Primark, Superdrug, Boots and Poundland.   Boots – Primark  £10 I felt an overwhelming sense of guilt…

Accidental May Haul

May 29, 2014
may-haul

Sometimes you just want to shop. It’s an urge that truly can not be ignored, especially if Gem and I are left alone, unsupervised! This afternoon was definitely one of those times and we ended up going on a completely unplanned spree. No budget style shop would be complete without a trip to Primark and even though I didn’t -need- anything at all, I still ended up with a bag full of stuff. I absolutely adore giraffes and I squeeled…

Makeup Revolution – Vamp Lipstick Collection Review

May 27, 2014
revolution-lipsticks

Everyone has been raving about Makeup Revolution and some of their more ‘quirkier’ products. After reading so many great reviews, I couldn’t help but pick a few things out for myself. One of the first things I threw into my virtual basket was the “Vamp Collection” lipsticks, a limited edition set of 3 colours which were £1 each or £2 when you bought the set. I also picked up two others, “Twist” and “Dare” which were only £1. From Left to…

Would You Rather? Beauty Edition Tag

May 27, 2014
would-you-rather

We were tagged by the lovely Jaq at Lazy Days Beauty, check out her post here. We really like these tag posts as it’s a chance to get lots of other bloggers involved and also discover some great new reads!   Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lip glosses or lose all of your palettes and eye shadows?  Pants: I would definitely sacrifice my palettes and eye shadows, a little bit of liner, mascara and…

Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner Review

May 26, 2014
Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner Review

  So it turns out I’m pretty bad at enforcing a cosmetics spending ban! In my defence I definitely did need a new black gel liner, so when my friend Red suggested that Amie and I might like this I snapped one up rather quickly! From what I can make out this is a re-brand of an existing product to match the packaging for the new Kate Moss Rimmel London range, this time including a short eyeliner brush. I can’t…

Bourjois Paris Little Round Pot Blush in “Rose d’Or” Review

April 30, 2014
bourjois-blush-2

Recently, I’ve been lusting after the Bourjois blushers like nobody’s business. I admit I’ve always been a fan of their whole range, but the really good stuff is just out of my price range and I really can’t justify buying it when I already have so many things. This one however, has been following me around like a lost puppy for months, so on a recent Boots trip after finding out I had over £40 worth of points on my…

Internet Haul – Real Techniques & Make-Up Revolution

April 29, 2014
Haul April

I’ve been doing some big hauling recently, but this is the last for one a loooong time! I’ve been dying to try out some of the bits and pieces from Make-Up Revolution, so when I saw their Easter offer of a free gift with every purchase I had to take advantage!   The first thing I knew I had to have was the Scandalous Lip Collection (£1 each), the blue lipstick in particular called out to me and I’m already in…

Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm in Striking

Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm in Striking

After discovering my love for matte lip finishes with the MUA Matte Lipsticks  I was eager to have a look around and see what other shine-free offerings are about. The Revlon Colourburst Matte Balms have been all over the blogosphere recently, and with all the good reviews I’ve seen it was only a matter of time  before one accidentally fell into my shopping basket. I chose Striking,  a orange-red (of course it was going to be a red!). The balm is…

MUA Matte Lipsticks Review and Swatches

April 21, 2014

  I actually picked these up a while ago, but they’ve sat in my “to be reviewed” pile for far too long so I thought it was finally time to break them out and give them some wear! I picked up all five shades available (l-R) Peachy Keen, Pouty Pink, Totally Nude, Wild Berry & Scarlet Siren, though I’ve seen that there are two more shades floating around now (which of course I will need to find and add to complete the…
