I’m backkk!! :)

Hello lovelies!

I apologise for being a bad blogger and disappearing off the radar for a few weeks, things have just been so busy since we moved to London, I’ve barely had any time to do anything! But, I’m back, we’re all settled into our flat and all our stuff has finally arrived so I’m back to posting regularly from now on and I have SO many products to show you and reviews to do so we better get started! 馃檪

Over the past few weeks I’ve just picked up bits and pieces here and there and also, it was my 21st birthday so I got a few goodies for that too and I’ve gathered them all together specially to show you! 馃檪

So as you can see, I’ve been having a little bit of fun with this lot!
Here’s the full list of what I got just incase you can’t see everything;
Collection Lipstick, Topshop Lipstick, Sleek Matte Me liquid lipstick, Collection Lip Definer, Lanc么me Blush Subtil palette, Mac blush, Nars blush, Sleek Brow kit, Maybelline Gel Liner, Lanc么me Hypnose Doll Eyes eyeshadow palette, Sleek foundation, Lush Cleanser, Babyliss Tangle Teezer and I also got the Argan Oil Hydrating shampoo but I forgot to include it in the picture 馃檪
I will do reviews on everything here separately but I just wanted to let you have a look at what I’ve been upto and products that have taken my fancy in the shops over the past month or two!
And as always, as beauty junkies, we do love a good sample or two when we buy products so I also picked up these whilst getting some goodies for family and friends for Christmas (and myself, of course!)

I actually got some really lovely samples, some of which I’ve tried out over the past few days and have really liked! So above, we’ve got a few things from L’Occitane; Precious Eye Balm, Ultra a Rich Body Cream and Milk Concentrate Face and Body Lotion, as well as the Cupcake face mask from Lush, Charcoal face mask from Origins and a little pot of the Sheer Matte Foundation from Nars in the shade Mont Blanc.

Instead of writing one super long post, I’m going to go off and do mini reviews on all these products for you guys over the next few days so I hope you enjoy them! 馃檪

Review: MAC Lipstick in Rebel

Hi loves! 馃檪

The other day I picked up a MAC lipstick that I've had my eye on for agess. It's called 'Rebel' and it's an absolutely stunning purple-y plum, gorgeous for this time of the year.

 

It's a Satin finish, which means that it's still creamy, matte and full of colour but a lot less drying on the lips than the matte finishes. As you all know I the satin and amplified finishes from MAC are my absolute favourites because they're so packed with colour, and you can always find literally any colour that you could ever want, they last forever too which is a bonus! Check out the swatch below 馃檪

 

What do you think? What's your favourite MAC lipstick?

Make Up Haul!

Hello my loves!

I hope you all had a good weekend, I'm sorry I haven't been posting much this week I've been super busy with work and everything!

But I did find time to go shopping (I know, naughty!) and pick up a few bits and pieces that I've had my eye on for a while now and I couldn't wait to get home and play with it all so I could get on and tell you all about it! So here's what I got..

MAC Lustre Drops in Pink Rebel
Smashbox Oil-Free Photo Finish Primer in Light
Est茅e Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara in Black
Smashbox Smoke Box Eye Palette
*The MAC Fluidline wasn't for me but I just thought I'd include in the picture, and I also bought MAC lipstick in Rebel and forgot to put it in there!
I also came home with a little sample pot of the Creme de la Mer Moisturising Gel Cream that I can't wait to try!
Swatches coming soon! 馃檪
Love & Lipstick,

Autumn Make-up Look

Hello loves! 馃檪

Today, I decided to try out a different look using some lovely autumn colours so I dug out my Sleek iDivine Monaco palette and got stuck in!

It's got a lovely mix of colours, some brights, some pastels and some neutrals, perfect! I absolutely adore the Sleek palettes, I've got a few of them, and I love them because there's a massive range of colours, they're long lasting, reasonably priced and super pigmented.

I decided to go for the three colours above, I'm not sure of the names though!

So, I started with the lightest colour, a matte beige colour, and applied it all over the lid and right up to the brow bone.

Then, I applied the middle colour, a super pigmented bronze-y red over the lid. (It looks a lot more orange in the picture than it really is).

Finally, I used the matte plum (which is gorgeoussss) in the crease and blended it up and out for a smokey look.

Finish with a flick of liquid liner, some mascara and a plum lipstick (I'm using No Competition by Benefit) and your good to go! 馃檪

Love & Lipstick,

Tammy xoxo
