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,

Tammy xoxo

 


Sneak Peeks!

Hello my lovelies! 🙂

I’ve got some super exciting news that I’ve been dying to share with you.. I’ve had a little sneak peek of Benefit’s new Christmas gift sets, eek! 🙂 they are stunning! And last Christmas, my counter was sold out of the sets by mid November time so I’d snap them up quick!
I don’t have pictures of everything but ill do my best to explain them 🙂

So, first up we’ve got the Limited Edition Crescent Row Set. It features three minis of Benefits best selling fragrances (Laugh with me Lee-Lee, Ring my Bella, My Place or Yours Gina) plus new girl on the block, (which ill explain more about in a later post!) Under my Spell Noelle, super cute for Christmas 🙂 I’m yet to find out if Noelle is limited edition or a permanent addition to Crescent Row but as soon as I know, you’ll know!
This is the lovely Noelle..

Next up, we’ve got ‘Love at First Shine’!
This cute little set includes minis of all 6 shades of the ultra plush lip glosses from the recently launched Colour Collection. (Also, I didn’t take these pictures, I just want to clarify that lol!).

Then we’ve got another one that I think looks great! It’s called ‘It’s a Love Fest!’
It’s priced at £39.50 and is packed full of Benefit goodies! And the packaging is gorgeous too, the set contains a Porefessional primer, They’re Real mascara, Sun Beam highlighter and an Ultra Plush Lipgloss in Coralista. Fabulous!

High Beam
Posietint lip & cheek stain

I think sets like this are great, especially if you’ve been wanting to try a few things as it allows you to test bits and pieces before you commit to a full size product!
