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
Estée 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! 🙂
Love & Lipstick,
Tammy xoxo

Autumn Make-up Look

Hello loves! 🙂

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! 🙂

Love & Lipstick,

Mini Haul!

Hello lovelies! 🙂

So, it’s nearing the end of the month as pay day still seems SO far away and I was having some major beauty cravings so I just decided to be naughty and I spent my very last few dolla on some beauty goodies!
Here’s what I got..

First up there’s some lashes from Collection. I do love a good pair of falsies so I picked the Luscious Lashes in Glam Volume (£2.99, Superdrug).

I also picked up a black kohl liner from MUA which was only something like £1.50, I hate spending ridiculous money on stuff like that because the cheap ones are usually just as good. I really like this one because it’s lovely and creamy, and it comes with a handy little sharpener on the lid!

I also picked up a little pair of press on nails from Primark, I really like these because they’re super handy just to wear for a couple of days, especially if you have an event or night out!

Now, this is my favourite purchase of the day! I’m super excited to get playing with it, it’s one of the three new Shadow & Blush Palettes from Barry M!
I got the Smokin’ Hot version but you can also get the Natural Glow version, which reminds me of the Naked palette a bit, all neutral colours with a lovely light pink blush, and the Glamour Puss palette which has a STUNNING hot pink blush and is definitely next on my Wishlist!

I’m really excited to play with this and get creating some gorgeous smokey eye looks, greys and blacks are some of my favourite colours to bring some drama into a look and they never, ever go out of style. The shadows and blush have a lovely, velvety texture to them and I was really pleasantly surprised at the pigmentation, they have some amazing colour to them! Check them out below 🙂 (unfortunately it doesn’t state the names of the colours on the case, which is disappointing as I like to know the shade if I ever need to replace it but that is my only complaint so far!)
Hope you like..
