ASOS Makeup Haul | Nars & The Balm ❤

2 comments






Recently ASOS emailed me saying they were offering 20% off for students. Now I know I've just graduated from University but my lovely little NUS card doesn't expire until the 22nd of this month so I'm definitely making the most of it in its last few days. It's quite sad really, for the first time I'm not going to get student discount anymore! Time to get into the real world I guess..

So I after I received that email I ended up browsing through their makeup section to see what products took my fancy, as I decided to treat myself (like we all do sometimes) So here's what I chose..


I've been wanting to venture out my comfort zones with foundations lately and this has been on my wish list for a long time. I've read so many reviews on this foundation and its been mentioned a million times on YouTube so I finally cracked and ordered it. After looking online at the shade selection I decided to go for the shade 'Fiji'. Once it arrived I swatched it onto my hand and it looks the perfect colour. I'm a NW20 in MAC if any of you are similar to me and are looking for new foundations. I'm really excited to try this foundation out and I'll definitely get a first impression post up for you all soon! 


Oh my trusty Nars 'Laguna' bronzer! I remember first ordering this bronzer around three years ago when ASOS had 20% off for students and I decided to bite the bullet and try it out. NARs bronzing powders retail for £27.00 which is a crazy amount of money for a bronzer I know, but it is so worth it. To say this is my third 'Laguna' bronzer really does say something! This bronzer lasts me around a year I'd say and I use it pretty much every single day.  If you haven't tried this bronzer out before and want to treat yourself I can't recommend it enough.


Yes, I finally got my hands on some theBalm products! There has been so much hype about this brand over the past year that I wanted to see what all the fuss was about! If your a regular reader of my blog you'll know I'm a massive highlighter fan so I had to try this out. If you'd like me to do first impressions on these products please do let me know.


Alongside the highlighter I also ordered their bronzer/contouring powder 'Bahama Mama'. I have to say I was expecting it to be slightly larger as it did look absolutely tiny next to my Nars 'Laguna' bronzer but I'm excited to try this product out.

So that's everything I bought from ASOS! Quite sad really that its probably going to be one of my last orders as a student..(cries haha)

 Have you tried out any of these products?

Victorias Secret Fragrance Mist | The Perfect Stocking Filler ❤

3 comments



Victoria's Secret is definitely one of my guilty pleasures in life - whenever I see one of their shops I have to go in! Its honestly one of the most beautiful and glamorous shops I know and I was so pleased when they started opening up stores here in the UK! There are now nine stores in the UK ranging from London to Leeds.

Todays post is all about their fragrance mists! I've mentioned this product before in one of my favourites post as they smell absolutely delicious and are so affordable. I think they would be be the perfect christmas stocking filler this year.

If don't get the opportunity to go into their stores I've found their fragrance mists available on Amazon now which is amazing! They have so many different scents available. The three I've featured are my top three, with 'Strawberries & Champagne' being my all time favourite! 

Have you tried them out before? What would you like to see in your stocking this year?

Smashbox & Rimmel Haul ❤

4 comments







So recently I went shopping at Castle Point and accidentally found myself browsing the isles of Boots! Todays post is just a mini haul of the three products that I picked up, so lets get started..


This palette caught my friends eye and she immediately called me over, and I absolutely fell in love. I've never tried anything from Smashbox before but have heard great things about their primers. This palette is part of their holiday collection that they have brought out and it was £49.00. It contains 28 of their best selling 'Photo Op' eyeshadows. I just loved all the shades as it has a lovely range of neutrals as long as some brighter more daring colours. I have to say the packaging is so luxurious and has a real high quality feel to it.


I feel like every single of one of my recent posts I've mentioned this product oops! By now you'll all know I'm a massive fan of this product so I've been desperate to get my hands on the new matte shades they have brought out recently. I picked up 'Atomic Rose' which is a gorgeous nude-pink colour which will be perfect for everyday wear! 


For a while now I've wanted to get my hands on a nude eyeliner as I feel it really opens up your eyes and its perfect for those tired eye days we all get! I used to wear a white eyeliner in my waterline a few years ago but unfortunately I lost it and I also feel like white is too obvious and un-natural. This eyeliner was only £3.99 which is amazing value for money! So far I'm really impressed with this eyeliner and its comparable to my MAC eyeliners.

So thats my little mini haul from Boots! I'm definitely going to be on a spending ban up until Christmas now! What have you all been loving lately?

My Top Four Red Lipsticks ❤

3 comments



Left to Right
Rimmel Apocolips 'Big Bang', MAC 'Russian Red' and MAC 'Riri Woo'




















So now that winter is well and truly here, I've been reaching for red lipstick on myself and my lovely clients a lot! So todays post is all about my top four favourite lipsticks at the moment!


This palette is one of my favourites as its only £8.99 which is super cheap considering your getting four lipsticks. I find this palette really easy to throw into my handbag if I fancy applying a red lip through out the day. The pigmentation is beautiful and I find shades work with all skin tones as they are a mixture of blue-tone reds and orange reds. I'd highly recommend this palette if you have never worn a red lip before and aren't sure which shades you prefer.


If your a regular reader of my blog you will know that this is one of my favourite lip products. You can see my review here on them! 'Big Bang' is a gorgeous blue tone red which makes your teeth look lovely and white. I love the formula of these lip lacquers as they are like a melted lipstick, meaning they are ridiculously pigmented and apply so smoothly and evenly on the lips. 


You could probably guess that this lipstick was going to be in my favourites. I'll be honest and say this is my go to red lipstick and it has been for many years now. I love literally everything about this lipstick, the shade, the pigmentation, the matte formula and its staying power. Definitely a shade you should have in your collection if your an avid red lip wearer. 


A more recent favourite for me is 'Riri Woo'. It is very similar to 'Russian Red' but it is a retro matte finish so it has a slight shine to it and its also a slighter deeper red. I'm definitely going to be reaching for this shade over the festive season.

Whats your favourite red lipstick?
