Boots Beauty Haul

Just a quick post before I go out to see the boyfriend; I wanted to share with you my bargains I got online at Boots. All this I managed to nab for just over £20 as I took advantage of the 3 for 2 offer plus the 'get a free gift when u buy 3 of the same brand so I ended up with four free items! Amazing!

 I will obviously be doing full reviews on these if I reckon they deserve it ;) but I am already loving the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick which I picked up in Glam Plum Fulham (470); the formula is so creamy & moisturizing on the lips! I'm so happy I managed to get all this for £20! Just in case you're wondering the bits I got free were the Baby Lips, the Rimmel Cocktail Colour Polish - which I think I am going to save for Christmas day - and the two eyeliners! Absolute bargain! 

Hope you all have a lovely weekend. I am now off out for a Thai curry! Nom :)

The Make-up Post: Saturday Night


I'm back! After what seems like forever... recently I've had a bit of a mental block so I stepped away from blogging for a couple of weeks until I got my mojo back. So, I was meant to put this post up yesterday but I was just too hungover & tired to even function so here it is a day late, and i can no longer call it a Sunday post :(
I've been turning to my MUA Undress Me Too Palette a lot lately. Its easy to create a simple look or go all out with a smokey eye. The metallic gold's are my favourite as you can probably tell by the state of them; I usually just use my index finger to apply the shadow as I find using a brush causes quite a bit of fallout. The Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation is one of my favourites; its got such a creamy texture, doesn't leave a shine & has SPF 18 - winner! I usually dab it around my face with my fingers and then use my Real Techniques Buffing Brush to really blend it in.
As for mascara & eyeliner I use Benefit's They're Real on my bottom lashes and Rimmel London's Scandaleyes Lycra Flex mascara on my top lashes because it creates just the right amount of curl & volume. After I apply eyeshadow I add a slick of the L'Oreal Paris SuperLiner Blackbuster just to add some definition. I apply some just along my lower lash then as well then in my waterline I use the Maybelline eye liner pencil in white to make my eyes appear wider (can't find link sorry)!
I purchased the Look Beauty's Cheeky Trio in 'Candy Floss' - I don't rarely use the bronzer much but the blush is the perfect colour for my cheeks and I tend to just use the highlight under my eyebrows. To keep my make up in place I use a big powder brush to just apply Rimmel London's Stay Matte Powder in 'Peach Glow' over my forehead, cheeks, chin & nose.  
Lastly, the eyebrows! I'm 99% sure this little brow palette is MUA but it seems to be different on the website? So if you happen to know what make this is please let me know haha! I think it could possibly be a branded product they did, who knows?! Anyways I use the darkest shade of brown in the palette and just sweep gently across my brows to fill in any gaps and make them more defined; I do this with a MUA eyeliner angled brush and I find it works better than the little brush that is provided. The palette also comes with a cute little pair of tweezers which I have found quite handy.

The Sunday Post: All Things Tartan

<a href="">Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>
I am so head over heels in love with tartan yet I still do not have anything that remotely suggests this so here is another wishlist because I swear to Mary once I get paid next week I will buy myself something nice, tartan & cosy! I am still undecided though whether to go for the scarf... or the cardigan... or maybe the skirt...
