New Buys | Beauty

Hey. Here are some of my beauty/skincare buys of the week. Its a new year. i am getting older so think its a wise step to start looking after my skin underneath my makeup. It is very important to look after your skin by eating healthy, drinking plenty of water and having a daily skincare regime. Working out your skin type is an important first step in knowing how to treat your skin, what products to use and how to have the perfect skin. 

L'Oreal Skin Perfection Cleansing & Perfecting Milk

 Being a person who just usually uses facial wipes to cleanse my face which is bad I know. I thought i would try a proper skin care routine. Superdrug currently have 2 for £5 on selected L'Oreal cleansing products so i opted for this cleansing milk. It is suitable for sensitive skin, removes make-up and impurities to reveal a better skin texture. 

L'oreal Skin Perfection Velvety-Soft Toner

Bought along with my 2 for £5 deal at superdrug. Infused with softening actives, removes impurities and leaves skin toned, silky smooth with no dryness or discomfort.

L'Oreal Skin Perfection Correcting Day Moisturiser

 L’OrĂ©al Paris Skin Perfection Day Cream is a moisturising cream formulated to visibly improve the quality of young skin. Designed for women in their twenties, the cream is enriched with perline-P, a combination of three perfecting actives, to help reduce the appearance of pores while improving skin texture and tone.

Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser Clear

Maybelline are currently offering 2 for £10 on selected products in superdrug. I needed a new primer for work and everyday so i decided to try this. With or without foundation, this clear formula's first benefit is to instantly transform the look of your skin. Skin feels smoother, softer and appears more refined. You can also wear with make-up so that foundation glides on seamlessly. In addition, Baby Skin is enriched with Cherry Extract.

Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer Nude 

I've heard a lot about this product and seen a few of my favourite bloggers using it. My usual everyday under eye concealer is on its way out so I  picked up this as part of the 2 for £10 offer on Maybelline products in Superdrug. The formula, enriched with Goji Berry helps care for the eye area by hydrating, while covering flawlessly.

Do you have any of these products? How do they work for you? Would love to hear.

Mac Matte Lipstick - Honeylove | Beauty

(Instagram shot) 
One of my favourite lippies at the moment. Its a pinkish nude colour. I love how it pairs with my naked 2 palette eye shadows. I'm wearing it with a lip liner from Barry M in chocolate. Although if paired with Mac's Whirl lip liner you can get the similar nude look as Kylie Jenner. But I'm defiantly loving this look for myself and my dark skin tone. At the moment I'm loving the nude/olive/camel trends and this lipstick is perfect with carrying off the look. Would defiantly repurchase.

Shoe Game - 99 Problems | Fashion

Hey! This is just a quick post showing you guys my new slip on cleated Chelsea boots I got from La Moda! After hours surfing the net looking for the perfect Chelsea booties for a reasonable price I came across these. Which are perfect and only £29.99! I have worn them once so far at a house party and received a lot of great complements. They are comfortable and not too high for me. The heel height is 4.5 inches. What I love about these shoes is that they are so versatile can be worn with almost anything from jeans to a dress.
Postage was fast and straight forward I ordered on Friday morning for next day delivery and received them on Saturday around 12 pm. They also sent me a free keyring, hair scrunchie, a spice up your life sticker and a tutti frutti sweet which i thought was really nice off them and excellent customer service. I will defiantly be ordering with them again in the future.

Current Beauty Faves...♥ | Beauty

Happy New Year Beauts :) Hope you all are well and had a great Christmas and new year. I got a new canon camera from my mum for Christmas i fricken love it! so that means you will be seeing a lot more posts from me (once i figure out how to use it) ha ha. Anyway today i wanted to share with you a few of my recent beauty favourites with small reviews. Any questions please feel free to leave a comment and i will give you my honest opinions. 

I usually have very oily skin and struggle with keeping my foundation looking flawless on my face all day. On most days I apply my make up at about 9 am till 5:30/6 pm when I finish work. By the end of the day my face and make up gets so shiny... That was until I discovered this beat. Like seriously where have you been all my life? My make up stays in place and lasts all day. I call it miracle mist.

Okay I cant really comment on this one too much yet. But I can comment on my thoughts so far. I have the travel size version and i have managed to use it for about a week. My skin has been visibly clearer since using it and my skin does feel much softer. Haven't seen any difference in my pores yet but i will defiantly give it more time and may do another full review.

I've heard and seen so many reviews on this eye-shadow primer for ages now but wasn't sure if it was worth buying. I received it as a gift for Christmas and I love it! It makes any eye-shadow no matter how cheap last all day and crease free. 

What can I say but pure perfection? This palette is perfect. Lovely colours with strong pigments which can also be blended or built up. Perfect for all skin tones and is perfect for day to night make up looks. 

I love this product so much! once you have tried this you wont go back to your usual eyebrow pencil. Its simply amazing. I got it in dark brown. Its easy to use and lasts all day long. Its nice and pigmented with a smooth easy to apply texture. I also bought the Anastasia Beverly hills dual-sided brow brush #12 which I use to shape my brows and fill. I highly recommend this brush if you are going to buy the pomade, 

This is a lovely colour. A little goes a long way. Its extremely pigmented so be careful when applying. It gives me a cute natural flush which is very flattering. It also gives a hint of gold shimmer which i love. It goes with everything and is bendable i reach for this blush alot. 

Thanks for reading :)
