Hey everyone, in todays blog I am going to show you small bits that I have brought this week.

Since everyone was talking about how the Naked palettes where so similar to the ‘Makeup Revolution’ palettes, I just had to buy them! I’ve been wanting to get one for a very long time, but just didn’t have the time too. So I finally got my head around in getting this. I brought the ‘Iconic 3’ palette for just £4.00 which is amazing! The quality and pigmentation is really good, never did I think a cheap eyeshadow palette will actually please me! well done Revolution! However, the only down do is that it doesn’t have a mirror, but that doesn’t bother me. Apart from that…amazing!

I then brought the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation for £6.99 in the shade ‘201 Classic Beige’, again I have been wanting to buy this foundation for the longest time. This foundation has become one of my favourite ones. The dueyness and texture is perfect for me! It is so easy to blend and does keep my skin looking fresh for a sustainable amount of time.

I then picked up a felt tip liner from Collection 2000 for £2.99 and a lipliner from Gosh called ‘Antique Rose 002’ I am in love with this colour! It is a browny peachy colour which is perfect for the winter season! It is matte, waterproof and lasts a looong time!

November Haul 2014

essentials, face, Haul, lipstick

Hey everyone, haven’t been uploading in a while (which I probably always say when I write a blog lol) but today I have a small haul which I will be sharing for you guys todaay.

DSC01221

Okay to start of with I brought a foundation which is very popular, and finally got round in to buying it. It is the Bourjois Healthy mix. This foundation is amazing! It is so light yet covers a lot, it has a perfect finish — not matte at all, a bit duey but not SO duey. If that makes sense. In superdrug it costs £9.99 and smells fresh too, which is always a extra bonus. You could buy this here:  http://www.superdrug.com/Bourjois/Bourjois-Healthy-Mix-Foundation-Light-Beige-53/p/626452#.VGaAO_msXsY

Sticking to Superdrug, I then brought a lipstick from Barry M in the shade 164 which is a beautiful nude colour. I also did a blog about another Barry M lipstick which you can view by pressing this link: https://nreviewsproducts.wordpress.com/2014/09/19/favourite-lipstick-of-the-week/

I then brought a mascara from Maybelline called the  Big Great Lash. I am still getting used to this mascara, but not yet at a stage where I can be 100% sure if I like it or not.  I must say it is good for bottom lashes, and if your going for a simple look.

Lastly from Superdrug, I Purchased this powder from Rimmel called match perfection. It has a smooth texture that glides easily on the skin and evens out my skin tone, which is great.

Again more lipsticks. This time from Elf, I ordered 2 shades. One is Ravishing Rose and the other in Coral Cutie. Both these shades are so pigmented and lasts for a very long time. If you would like to see an in depth blog about these lipsticks, then let me know in the comments below.

Plane Journey / Summer Essentials 2014

Uncategorized

 

DSC00094

Hellooo everyone, thanks to summer I am finally on a holidaaaay, so this is a perfect time to blog about plane journey / summer essentials. These are the most important basic items I carry with me when I am travelling on long journeys.  I must admit, I hate plane journeys, it makes me feel all icky and uncomfortable. However with some of these, it may make you feel a tiny bit better – it did for meee.

DSC00167

First of all, I like to carry my things in this bag which is from Primark. This ‘makeup bag’ was less than £5 and the quality of this bag is actually quite good. It has a kind of waterproof material that makes it easy for you to wipe and it also prevents any liquids from entering.

Facial wipes is a must! It can be used for multiple things, which most of you already know. Wiping your makeup off, hands anywhere. It leaves your face feeling fresh and natural. The wipes that I used on the plane, is called  ‘deep facial cleansing wipes’ from Primark. It comes in a pack of 2, for £1 which is amazinggg.

I don’t know about you, but I NEEEED lip balms. Lips tend to go a bit dry, especially on long journeys so it is essential to keep some with you. Most of them are pocket size, so it shouldn’t be a problem at all. It protects my lips while leaving it  feeling smooth and moisturised. You just need to find the right lip balm that does the job, I will recommend Carmex. (Comment below if you would like to see my favourite lip balms)

Hand Sanitisers and Hand creams are so useful. Hand creams will leave your skin feeling fresh and clean.Whereas sanitisers, gets rid of all the dirt from your hands. That is what you want while travelling for hours, right?

Makeup is optional. If you want to wear makeup,  I recommend you wear light makeup, makeup that doesn’t feel as if is weighing your face down.

Lastlyyyyyyy, my favourite, exciting essential….eye mask! Now this makes me feel more relaxed, confident and warm. Planes do get cold, so this is a good way to keep your eyes feeling warm.

PS: I know that there is much more essentials that I haven’t spoke about, these are the basic items that I think that is important

Thank you for readingg,

what are your essentials?

 

Nivea Lotion Normal Skin 250ml

I brought this from boots for £2.50 which is inexpensive for a 250 ml bottle.I have normal skin, however I have read that this works for people who have dry skin. Nice, right?

The packaging is different from the other Nivea skin products that I have seen so far. It is navy blue with a white screw cap. The bottle is completely opaque, so you can’t see the quantity of the lotion.

The texture of the lotion is nice and light, therefore it is great for summer! The scent of the lotion is light as well. Not sure how to define the smell though lol.

(Excuse my skinny arms:$)

This product is easy to blend and absorbs quickly. Which is a life saveeeeer. I like the shine it gives to my face. The glow is subtle – not too shiny.Using this product before applying  make up makes my foundation easier to apply.I would definitely recommend this product! It’s rather cheap and an amazing product.
