Today’s Look & Outfit of the Day!

Hello pretties! 🙂

Does anyone else subscribe to the newsletters from clothing websites and then when they constantly email you with offers of 50% off and free delivery?! For a shopaholic like me, this is dangerous territory, when I see that, I literally can’t help myself, I HAVE TO BUY STUFF! Ahhh!
This is exactly what happened to me on Friday when I received an email from Boohoo.com, telling me that there was free delivery and a half price sale. Well, credit card disaster.
On the upside, my order arrived yesterday and I bought this gorgeous skirt which I couldn’t not show you since this season is all about the punk spirit!

Since I was feeling all punky today, obviously I had to match my make up so here it is!

Today’s Look!

As you all know, I love a bold lip whether I’m heading off for a night out or doing my weekly shop at Tesco. Everything about an eye-catching lipstick makes you feel better and a bright colour always brightens up the day.
But, today I decided to give the colour a miss (gasp!), and go for the old faithful smokey eye and a clear, (yes clear!) lipgloss! Check it out below…

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..

20130926-161651.jpg
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).

20130926-161854.jpg
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!

20130926-162416.jpg
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..

Let me know what you think, have you tried any of these palettes yet?

Benefit Haul!

Hello my lovelies! 🙂

So, my Benefit allocation arrived okay so I thought I’d share with you the things that I got!

20130913-223921.jpg
L-R: Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow foundation, Watts Up! Highlighter, World Famous Neutrals; Sexiest Nudes Ever eye palette, Boo Boo Zap & Bella Bamba blush.

I thought we’d start with the Hello Flawless. I chose the shade ‘Beige’. Benefit foundation comes in 3 categories, Light, Medium & Dark. ‘Beige’ is the lightest colour in the Medium sector.

20130913-224113.jpg
I genuinely love this foundation, it’s oil free which is great for me as I have oily/combination skin, and it spreads brilliantly so a little goes a long way. The coverage is light to medium and buildable so it’s great for everyday wear, it gives a gorgeous, dewy finish and contains a unique ingredient called the Tri-Radiance Complex which instantly brightens and hydrates the skin.

20130913-224356.jpg
Next up, we’ve got the “Watts Up!” highlighter. Honestly, I prefer this to the High Beam, Sun Beam etc purely because its easier to apply, blend and is a nicer colour. The stick formula makes it super easy to apply, it just glides over the skin and the little buffing sponge blends it in without leaving you looking like you have a big, messy, patchy ‘C’ shape around each side of your face. It also doesn’t dry in so it’s much easier applied than the High Beam and its a lovely, shimmery golden colour.

Now then, Bella Bamba! This is my favourite Benefit blush. Pink (of course), highly pigmented and slightly shimmery, what’s not to like?!

20130916-133242.jpg
And now we’ on to the really exciting part, this was the one product I couldn’t wait to get my hands on out of this whole package.. the World’s Famous Neutrals; Sexiest Nudes Ever palette. What can I say about it..it’s just stunning. A super cute palette containing four powder shadows and two creams. The creams I love, they’re so easy to use and take very little blending, which is super handy if your always rushing around like me! The kit also comes with 2 lovely little looks that you can try at home, ill post my versions of them later this week! 🙂

20130916-133603.jpg
The two creams are ‘Holy Smokes’ a gorgeous charcoal grey and ‘Bikini-Tini’, a light, shimmery, shell-pink.

20130916-133753.jpg
Onto the powders we’ve got ‘Milk It’, a shimmery white, perfect for highlighting, ‘Raincheck’ a deep purple, ‘Pause for Applause’, a light lilac-pink and ‘
Blingo’, my absolute favourite, it’s a super blingy, metallic silver, amazing!

20130916-134006.jpg
I also got the holy grail of spot treatments, Boo Boo Zap which is amazing for clearing up spots within a couple of days but there isn’t really much I can show you with that!

Hope you enjoyed this lovelies!
