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

I’ve tried a couple of products before from this gorgeous French skincare brand which I’ve loved but I really want to get my hands on this skin-plumping, hydrating moisturiser that also doubles up as a primer!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Pro Brow Palette £33.87

As a working Make-Up Artist, this looks like a must have in my kit!

Obssessive Compulsive Cosmetics LipTar Matte £11.09

My most wanted shade is Digitalis, a pale pinky-lavender and 100% vegan and cruelty free, what’s not to love?!

The perfect lashes for that doe-eyed, flirty look, just gorgeous!

What do you think ladies, have you tried any of these products? Let me know, I always like to read your comments and get some feedback 🙂

Upcoming Benefit Launches!

Hi guys! 🙂

So, I know you all know that the new Benefit perfume is released at the end of this month but did you also know that the Bathina spray on body oil is launched on the same day?

The original Bathina comes in a creamy formula that can be rubbed onto the body to give a gorgeous, shimmery glow. The same idea with the new Bathina, except this time it’ll much easier to apply, just spray on after you come out of the shower & your good to glow!

BUT there’s also another top-secret Bene-launch coming this January that I am SO excited about! As an avid Pore-fessional fan, I cannot wait for this, coming out in January. Check it out.. the Porefessional; Agent Zero Shine translucent powder!

Annndddd… Finally, another addition to the B.right skincare range, called Dream Screen. It’s a liquid sunscreen, oil free SPF 25 PA***, the highest sunscreen protection available, coming out in the New Year.

How exciting! 🙂

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..

It’s available from 28th September and is priced at £29.50.

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!).

20130904-224322.jpg
This set is £19.50 and the shades are:
Kiss You – Sheer Lilac
A-Lister – Pink Nude
Ice Breaker – Clear
Lollibop – Hot Pink
Poutrageous – Sheer Coral
Fauxmance – Berry Nude

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!

‘Groovy Kind of Love’ is £29.50 and contains a travel sized Porefessional and They’re Real, a benetint, Dandelion & Bella Bamba blush duo and a 4 shade limited edition eyeshadow palette.

What do you think, will you be rushing down to your local counter to snap these up?

Skincare Favourites

Hi girlies!

okay, so anyone who has any idea about make up knows that a flawless face starts well before you even think about lifting those make up brushes, it starts with great skincare. Yours truly here has combination skin, which basically means I have dry cheeks and an oily t-zone so I’m going to show you some of my skin care favourites. These are the ones I use on a regular basis and that I think do wonders for my skin.

Image

Make-up Remover: Lancôme Eau Micellaire Douceur (Express Cleansing Water for Eyes, Face and Lips). I absolutely love this, it’s by far the best make up remover I’ve ever used. It takes your make out off in literally one swipe and its gentle enough to use on your eyes too. It’s also great for taking off waterproof eye make up.

Toner: I love both the Lancôme Tonique Douceur (Softening, Hydrating Toner) and the Benefit Moisture Prep toning lotion. Lancôme is super hydrating, smells amazing and gives the skin the most amazing refreshed feeling. Benefit comes in a liquid-gel formula and is best applied with the fingers and dries in quickly which is great if your in a hurry.

Serum: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair. I adore the advanced night repair, it does everything you’d want from a great serum, evens out pigmentation, controls oil and literally  locks in moisture to your skin. It also soaks in to the skin quickly so there’s no fussing about waiting for it to dry in before you can apply your moisturiser!

Eye Cream – Benefit It’s Potent! I literally adore this eye cream, it’s got the most beautiful texture and you can literally feel it doing good things to your skin! It’s got apple seed extract, burnette and cocoa extract to take down puffiness, lighten dark circles and moisturise the skin.

Moisturiser: Benefit Triple Performing or Benefit Total Moisture. The Triple Performing is a light daytime moisturiser, soaks in super quick and gives a great base for make up. The Total Moisture is a heavy duty moisturiser that I love for night time, it’s super hydrating and gives the most beautiful feel to the skin. It contains mango butter, which is a natural emollient so even people with psoriasis and eczema can use it. It’s also great for dry areas like elbows and knees!

Face Mask: Clarins HydraQuench Creme Mask. I literally adore this product. It’s the most hydrating facemask out there. It rubs on like a cream and doesn’t dry and harden on the skin like others which I really like because I hate that hard tight feeling! And your skin feels AMAZING once you take it off!

i hope you enjoyed my post today girlies and ill be back with some more rumblings tomorrow!

Love Tammy xoxo
