Bright Pink Lip Make Up Look

Bright pink lips are one of my favourite go-to make up looks. I think wearing a bold lip just brightens you up and makes you look put together without much effort. On Saturday I had a little date night with my best friend and this was my make up look for the night. 

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Lily Extase is one of my favourite hot pink lipsticks that I own. I've had it for years and unfortunately I don't think Rimmel make this particular shade anymore :(  Fear not though, because there are lots of other bright pink lipsticks that are great dupes including MAC's Girl About Town, L'Oreal Colour Riche lipstick in Intense Fuchsia, NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Yu or NYX Xtreme Lip Cream in Dolly Girl.

The other products I used were:-

I'm in love with my new Morphe Warm Eyeshadow palette, it's so inexpensive yet the quality of the shadows are great and the pigmentation is good. Thirty five shades to play with; the possibilities are endless! Definitely expect to see more looks using this palette soon. 

Oh and if you are wondering I got my gorgeous necklace from River Island!

What is your go-to weekend make up look?

Sephora Haul

I seem to make a bi-annual Sephora order to satisfy my need for products that we, either don't have here in the UK, or are harder to find. My last Sephora haul was in February so I gave in to the urge and bought a few bits and pieces that I'm so exited about.

The item I was probably most exited by and really the whole reason for my Sephora order in the first place was the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop. Jaclyn is one of my favourite beauty YouTubers, so when I heard she had collabed with Becca to create this gold/peach highlighted I instantly needed it. This is my first Becca highlighter, it is buttery soft and gives the perfect glow to the skin.

I previously blogged about my love for one of Sephora's own brand bronzers so when I saw this peachy bronzer I thought I would try it out to see if I like it as much as I did their other bronzer. The Sephora Collection Sun Disk Bronzer is huge which is perfect for my massive body bronzing brush and the zebra design is just too pretty!

My next purchase was entirely influenced by Lily Pebbles who raved about these new Stila Aqua Glow Watercolour Blushes. I got the colour Water Lily which is described as a vibrant rose. The little pot contains a water based liquid blush which is really pigmented but easy to blend out. I'm not usually in to liquid or cream blushes but something about this product appealed to me. I am dying to try it out.

Tarte products are very hard to find in the UK and the selection of products available isn't as wide, so I always take advantage of the huge selection that Sephora has to offer. Tarte has come out with a few new palettes and I got the Showstopper Clay Palette. It contains six neutral eyeshadows, a bronzer, a highlighter and one of their Amazonian Clay blushers. It has everything you need all in one palette and the packaging is so pretty. I thought this would be so handy for travelling with.

I have been having a bit of a liner crisis lately, as all of the ones that I have bought haven't been up to the job. I have heard really good things about the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner and decided it was worth a try. I love the marker style liners as I find them the easier to use; this one is super black and has a really fine tip which makes it easier to be precise. I wore this yesterday and in stayed perfectly in place all day.

My next purchase was the Beauty Blender Micro Mini. These are the cutest little things ever! Miniature versions of the tradition Beauty Blender, these can be used to get in to little spaces and blend under eye concealer or contour and highlight. I thought these looked too cute to pass up. I also bought some for my make up artist friend Alice (sorry if you are reading this Alice, I've ruined the surprise!) as I thought they would be a nice addition to her kit.

After all these purchases and previous orders I had enough VIB points to pick a 500 point perk (the really good ones). They had a Clinique set that I wasn't to fussed with but then I saw they had a Living Proof Perfect Hair Day set. Living Proof is a much sought after hair care brand, co-owned by Jennifer Anniston. The set contained a deluxe/travel size of their Perfect Hair Day Shampoo and Conditioner, their 5-in-1 Styling Treatment and their Prime Style Extender Spray as well as a really good quality shower cap. Such a good free gift, eh?!

Also I got to pick three free samples. That's what I love about Sephora, they really are good to their customers.

So I think that is me well stocked up on new make up for a while....that being said I did get the Morphe 35 Warm Eyeshadow Palette this week as well (post coming soon) so my purse is definitely shut from now until Christmas!

I would love to know what new products you have been buying!

#manimonday ~ Essie Private Weekend

I love white nails for summer time, there is just something about clean, crisp white polish with gorgeous golden skin! When I there was white nail colour included in Essie's Summer 2015 collection I knew I had to have it (surprisingly I don't have any other white polishes!). Private Weekend is described as a sparkling crisp white, it does have a slight hint of silver shimmer running through it but once on the nails you can't really see it.

I started my manicure with a coat of Essie All In One Base, this is a pretty standard base coat that helps condition and strength the nails.

I then applied two coats of Private Weekend. This polish is nice and opaque which is good as many white polishes need tonnes of coats.

I finished of with a coat of the INM Out The Door Super Fast Drying Top Coat. I had only ever heard of this in America but I found this in TK Maxx for only £3. This top coat is amazing and even better than Seche Vite as it isn't as thick and gloopy yet makes your nails touch dry in under a minute! 

I would love to know what nail polish you are currently loving or if you have any recommendations then leave a comment below :) 

Oh and all the rings I am wearing are from Z for Accessorize.

Blog Sale

As a beauty addict you accumulate so many beauty products and you end up becoming a bit of a hoarder. This weekend I decided to go through my stash and find some products that I have barely used and decided to create a blog sale. 

I think blog sales are great because you can find some real gems and hard to find products at great prices. It lets you try things out without paying full price.

I found some great products that I have decided to include in my blog sale from brands such as Chanel, Bobbi Brown, Nars, Benefit, Make Up For Ever, Too Face, YSL and MAC.

All products have mostly only been used one or twice and are in great condition so they would love to find a new home.

If you want to check out my blog sale then just click the Blog Sale link on the top menu bar or click here.

I will be trying to update this regularly with new items.

If you have any questions then just let me know :)
