Lime Crime Liquid Lipsticks | Review / Swatches

image1-36

Hey guys! So a while ago I decided to purchase a bunch of Lime Crime Velvetine Liquid Lipsticks, and I thought I’d review them for you guys today! I picked 3 shades myself, and then I also purchased a ‘Velve-Tin’ which is a beautiful rose shaped tin containing three of their mini Velvetines.

I love the idea of the Velve-Tin because you get to try out the formula, you get three shades for £22.50 (and I love having a huge range of shades of lipstick to choose from), the packaging is beautiful (see pic below) and I don’t know about you, but I never get through a whole liquid lipstick, so the minis will last me a while anyway.

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation Review

image1-26.JPGimage1-27.JPG

Hey guys! It’s been a while since I last posted on here, as I’ve been focusing more on Instagram, but I promise I’m going to get back into blogging! Anyway, the other day I finally picked up the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation and I’ve been testing it out, so I thought I’d give you my thoughts and opinions on it. So lets get on with the review :)…

Firstly, I have to say it is very full coverage. If you’re looking for a natural foundation, then this isn’t for you, but personally I love a full glam look. Although it’s full coverage, it feels lightweight on the skin, and it doesn’t look cakey. It covers all my blemishes and redness, and it can be built up in areas that need a tiny bit more coverage. It has a demi-matte finish and it’s oil-free, so it’s perfect for my oily skin, and it lasts all day without getting greasy.

The packaging is beautiful. It comes in a frosted glass bottle with gold detailing, and it just looks so pretty and expensive. It also comes with a pump!!! (which I’m very happy about, if you couldn’t tell). You get 30ml of product, which is a decent amount, so it should last you a long time, seeing as it’s so full coverage.

I got the shade Porcelain, which is described as ‘very fair with neutral to pink undertones’, and I have to say it matches perfectly. It comes in 18 shades, so I think that there’s a shade to suit every skin tone!

It’s easy to blend, and just becomes one with the skin. I usually apply it with my beauty blender, but it applies equally well with a brush. It also photographs beautifully, it makes your skin look smooth, poreless and flawless!

I’d say that the only downside is the price. It retails for £29, which is quite pricey, but I guess it’s kinda reasonable for a high-end foundation, plus it will probably last you a while (as I said before :P). You can purchase it from Debenhams HERE.

Soooo, if you can’t already tell, I’m obsessed. I think that this has become one of my new holy grail foundations! As I said before, this is for those of you who love a full coverage. It is not a ‘natural’, ‘everyday’ foundation, but it would be great if you have problems with blemishes, dark spots or redness. It is great for photography, lasts all day, and there is a decent shade range available. I really recommend you give it a try!

I hope this helped! If you’ve been thinking about picking this up, I think you should!

Have you guys tried this foundation? If so, what did you think?

How To: Glitter Lips

image1-15

IMG_1099

Hey guys! Today I wanted to share with you a really easy way to achieve a glittery, sparkly, crazy lip look. I literally used about 4 products in total and I thought it turned out pretty cool. So here’s how to do it:

  1. Apply concealer all over the lips and set with a translucent face powder. This cancels out the natural colour of your lips and creates a clear, blank canvas and also ensures that the liquid lipstick you apply on top applies true to colour and comes out more vibrant.
  2. Apply any dark, cool toned, matte liquid lipstick. I used the NYX Liquid Suede in Stone Fox which is a cool toned grey.
  3. Carve out the lip line with concealer to ensure that they look neat and that the lines are sharp and crisp. Whenever I apply liquid lipstick it goes all over the place so this is the best trick to correct any mistakes.
  4. Apply either a glitter primer or eyelash glue on to the lips with a flat brush and immediately apply the glitter on top with the same brush. I find that it’s easier to work in sections, applying the primer/glue to a small section of the lips followed by the glitter, as this ensures that the glue doesn’t dry before you are able to apply the glitter. I used the DUO Clear Lash Adhesive and the NYX Glitter Brilliants in 06.
  5. Add a rhinestone in the centre of your bottom lip for extra effect 😉 I got them from Claire’s and it looks like I have a piercing! (you don’t have to do this)

And that’s it! I don’t know if I made any sense at all, I felt like I was just rambling, but hopefully you learned something?!

Thank you for reading,

So naturally, when I received my order I knew I had to create a look using my two new products! So here’s what I came up with…

Hey guys!

So you’ve probably seen the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kits ALL OVER Instagram, YouTube and the beauty blogging community. The launch of the two kits, That Glow and Gleam, created such excitement in the makeup world, following the release of Anastasia’s amazing illuminators, which left everyone wanting more. And the thought of getting four highlighters in one kit… isn’t that just heaven?? Anastasia is the queen of brows, and is now also the queen of highlighters. So after all the hype, and after falling in love with the ABH So Hollywood Illuminator, I was sososo excited to get my hands on my very own glow kit. So… are they worth the hype?

So let me get on with it, I’ll give a general review and a description of each shadow, along with swatches!

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation

Guys… I think I’ve found my new holy grail foundation! Anyway, we will get to the review in a bit. first I’m gonna tell you a bit of information about the foundation and let you decide for yourself if it’s right for you 🙂

So, I am a huge fan of Charlotte Tilbury as a brand. You can tell that Charlotte herself (I’m acting as if we are on a first name basis haha) is so passionate about her brand and every element of every product. She spent five years developing this foundation, making sure it was perfect and exactly what she wanted before she released it to the world. Charlotte Tilbury is a very high end brand and it’s pretty pricey but I can tell you that the quality of every product is phenomenal and definitely worth the price. There are 15 shades available so a great range and probably a colour to suit most skin tones.

Top 5 Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadows

mug shadows

After longing for some Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadows for a very long time, I finally decided to place an order and purchase some. Makeup Geek has a very good reputation in the beauty community for her exceptional quality eyeshadows at a very low price. I was so excited to try some and see if they lived up to the hype.

And my verdict? They definitely DO live up to the hype. The foiled eyeshadows in particular are such good quality I couldn’t believe they were only $9.99. The pigmentation is unreal, amazing colour payoff with just one touch of a brush. They are so buttery and smooth, and they swatch like a dream. They remind of MAC pressed pigments, but 100x more pigmented and sparkly (not chunky at all). There is no need for MAC fix plus with these!

I am an addict for all things sparkly, that’s why I was so tempted to try these. I have chosen five of my favourites from the collection and I wanted to share why I love each one. So here we go…
