Mini Collective Fashion Haul!

Hey! Today I have a little fashion haul for you guys. It's getting colder now, and wetter so I made a few rather sensible fashion purchases.. oh, and i also got a dress or two!

First of all, I got this super comfy red jumper. It's really warm and oversized which is exactly how I like I like my jumpers. This is perfect to throw on over a bare of leggings with some ankle boots yet it's really cute and looks great at the same time. I got this jumper from Forever 21 and it was just under 20 pounds!


Next, I got this ADORABLE rain mac! I have been searching high and light for something like this and low and behold I found one in my local Tesco! This is perfect for those days when it's not really that cold but there is rain and you don't want to have to wear too many layers. It can be tightened in at the waist for a more fitted look and it is easily folded away if you want to pop it in your back! This little beauty was only 12 pounds which I think is a bargain.


I picked up these lovely boots from Select fashion and I really like them. They are perfect for the cold weather and they go with just about anything. I have been wearing these loads lately and I love them!


Onto the not so sensible purchases, I could not help but pick up these two gorgeous dresses. The tartan dress is from Select once again and the lilac one is from Missguided. I have been looking for something tartan but really couldn't find anything I liked until I came across this beautiful skater dress. It was only 14 pounds as well, so I couldn't say no!


The lilac dress is also skater style and has these thin straps and zip at the side. I think this dress is really adorable and will be perfect for when summer comes along again.


And that's my fashion haul! I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know what you thought of my purchases! What winter fashion purchases have YOU made?!

Today's post is an outfit of the day, enjoy!


I wore my light wash denim jacket on top of this black and white polka dot vest. It has a long zip in the middle of it and is fitted around the chest. This is great to wear as part of a casual outfit or can be dressed up.

With these two, I wore some simple black skinny jeans and some black lace flats.

And that's my outfit complete! Thank you for reading and don't forget to leave any comments or suggestions below!

REVIEW: L'OREAL Nude Magique Eau De Teint Foundation!

Hey guys! In this post, I have a review with you all on L'oreal's latest foundation: Nude Magique Eau De Teint. I have seen this foundation recently on the television and it really caught my eye so I thought I'd pick it up!

The first thing I really love this about this foundation is it's bottle. I think it being in a glass bottle just makes it feel higher quality and the simple design adds to this as well.


I'd describe this foundation as having a medium coverage. It is quite buildable too. It is very liquidy, just like water and you are instructed to give it a good shake before use. You are also told to press your finger onto the bottle top and tip it upside down to get the product out. I have been doing this and then using a stipple brush to finish application!

The foundation blends in no time and although you only get a tiny amount using your finger to get the product, it actually goes an impressively long way. As I said, it blends seamlessly and really does not require much buffing into the skin at all. It feels very light on the skin, I couldn't feel that I was wearing anything!

This foundation gives the skin a very silky, smooth finish. It isn't cakey and it is so light that it looks so natural which I love. There is a very decent shade range available for this product and I myself am the lightest which for me is perfect.

So far, I am really loving this foundation. I haven't found a foundation I like this much since Bourjois' Healthy Mix, it's amazing! It is so light, so natural looking and it feels weightless on the skin.

I would definitely reccommend this foundation to anyone! It is honestly worth a try and I personally have not found a product this good for quite a while. Even the price is good! Right now it is only £6.99 at Superdrug and Boots as well as in some Supermarkets. Snap it up!

Have you tried this foundation yet?! 

Thank you for reading this post and I hope you enjoyed it! Leave any comments or suggestions down below, I love to hear from you!

TOP 5 FAVOURITE EYE PRODUCTS!

In this post, I am going to share with you my current top 5 favourite eye products. Let's get started!

Sleek's Oh So Special Palette - £6.99:



Firstly, I have my Sleek Oh So Special palette. I love this palette because it contains some really nice, workable shades for every day looks. It has a mixture of matte and shimmery finish shadows and there's a really good matte black in there too. The shadows blend well and there's barely any fallout which I love. It's a great little palette and is definitely worth it's reasonable price!

MUA's Heaven and Earth Palette - £4:



Next off, I have another palette. It's MUA's infamous Heaven and Earth palette. It contains twelve, really pretty, shimmery shadows and they are all gold and brown shades. Most of the shadows are really nicely pigmented and there is little fallout. I love this because of the neutral colours and the diverse shades of each colour that it has. It is so easy to create a day to night look with this palette and it's unbelievably cheap for it's great quality.

Elf' Eyeshadow Duo - £1.50:


The final eye shadow in this favourites post is my ELF eyeshadow duo in the shade Mocha. I love this because it has two key shades for me in most of my everyday eyeshadow looks; a medium brown and a pearly white. Both of these shadows have multiple uses, especially the white and they are so cheap that you really can't go wrong. It's a handy little duo to carry round with you on your travels and the pigmentation you get is very impressive.

L'oreal Telescopic Mascara - £10.99:



Fourth on my list is one of my favourite mascaras of all time: L'oreal Telescopic. I love the brush on this nascara and it lengthens my lashes like no other. My lashes are long but annoyingly straight and this gives them the length and volume I want. It's a little bit of pricier side but it definitely worth it and I would seriously recommend this mascara to anyone!

Real Techniques Eye Brush set - £20.99



Last but certainly not least on my life is my Real Techniques eye brush set. I love this set so much and i use them every single day. Each brush has it's own precise use and they are so, so soft on the eye which is always a definite plus. You can just tell that these brushes are high quality and they have a very reasonable price tag considering you get 5 brushes in the set.

And that's my list! I love all of these products and I have done a review on some of them which you should definitely go have a look at! Thank you for reading and don't hesitate to leave any comments or suggestions down below!

Review: Sleek Face Form Palette!

Hey! Today I am going to review for you all today Sleek's Face Form palette. Enjoy!

I have had this product for quite a while now, I got it back in July and have been using it ever since more or less daily. I got my palette in the shade Light and it contains 3 products in one handy palette. It has a contour powder, a highlight powder and a blusher.


All of these minus the contour powder are shimmery in their finish and they are super pretty. You get a really impressive amount of product in this palette as well, which I love. It comes with a handy mirror within the palette as well which is another added bonus to Sleek palettes!


The contour powder is smooth and is a mid brown colour that when applied to the skin looks extremely natural. This can also double up as a bronzer!

The highlight powder has a shimmery finish and is a creamy white/beige shade. This can be used a face highlight for along the cheekbones and length of the nose as well as for a brow bone highlight.

The blusher is this really nice, shimmery peach shade and it looks so pretty on the skin! 

All of the powder have a very smooth, soft finish and they all blend considerably well. For the cheap price and with what you get, this is definitely a palette worth investing in!

You can get the Sleek Face Form palette from your local Superdrug or the Sleek website, here. It is £9.99 which I think is very reasonable!

Thank you for reading this post, I hope you enjoyed it. Have you guys tried this palette yet? What did you think?!

MOTD: 10/10/13.

Hello! Today I have a makeup of the day post for you all. I went for a neautral eye and a bold lip today. This look uses pink tones with the blush and the lip products used, enjoy!


SO, as always I applied a light moisturiser to my face and primed my lips with a little bit of lip balm. I then applied my foundation and concealer. I used my Maybelling Dream Fresh BB cream instead of actual foundation because I wanted to go for a really light, fresh look. I concealed with my Rimmel Stay Matte concealer stick. 

Moving on to the eyebrows and eyes.. I lightly filled in my brows with a mid brown eyeshadow. I then primed my eyelids with my Elf primer and then applied a very light, shimmery champagne eyeshadow to the the whole lid. In the crease I applied a light, shimmery brown and blended it out, deepening the colour of the outer corner and working inwards just a little bit. I highlighted my brow bone with a light white shadow and I lined my lower lid with a mid eyeshadow and blended this out. I then applied my favourite mascara and the eyes are complete!

Back onto the face, I used my Sleek Face Form kit to first contour my cheekbones. I then highlighted the top and length of my nose and along the top of my cheeks with the shimmery highlight colour in the kit. For my blush, I used my MUA blush in the shade 'Marshmallow'. 

For the lips I applied my Collection 2000 Cream Puff lip cream in the shade 'Cotton Candy'.

I topped everything off with a little bit of my Rimmel Stay Matte powder to eliminate shine and shimmer in places I didn't want it!

And that is the look COMPLETE! Tah-dah!

I really hope you liked this look, I think it's really simple and very pretty for everyday wear. Let me know what you think of it! Please, leave any comments and suggestions you might have as I love to hear from you all, thank you for reading this post!

Collection Beauty Haul!

Hey guys! Today, I have a beauty haul for you all.. enjoy! So, this is a collective haul and it includes stuff I have bought over a period of about 2 or 3 weeks.


First off, I got a Collection 2000 Cream Puff lip cream. I have wanted to try these for quite a while now and I got mine in the shade Cotton Candy. It's sort of like a liquid lipstick with a matte finish.


Secondly, I picked up this Rimmel Stay Matte concealer for the bargain price of just one pound! I got this concealer in the shade Soft Ivory.


Next off, I got these two packs of face wipes. I have used these for quite a while now and they are really delicate on the skin and remove make up very well!


I also picked up this Illuminating Moisturising Cream from the Body Shop. I love The Body Shop's Vitamin E products and they had a 30% sale on at the time so I snapped it up for seven pounds!


The next thing I purchased was from Superdrug and it's this Real Techniques stipple brush. I was in need of a new one and I really like these brushes for applying foundation so I picked it up! It was £10.99.


Also from Superdrug, I got this Aqua Hydrating Day Cream. I like light moisturisers and was running low on mine so I thought I would try this one!


Whilst at my local supermarket, I picked up this mascara. It's from Collection 2000 and it is there Longer Lashes Lengthening mascara. I got this on sale and it was £3.


And finally, I wanted something lighter and with a little coverage than a foundation so I bought this Maybelline Dream Fresh BB cream. So far, I am really liking it! This BB Cream was £7 from Feel Unique.


And that brings my haul to an end! I hope you liked this haul, look out for some reviews of these products coming up soon! Please leave any comments or suggestions down below, I love to hear from you!

As always, thank you for reading!

New Camera and Perfume Collection!


Hey! So, in this post I thought I would share with you all my perfume collection! Before I get started, I just wanted to let you guys know that I finally got a NEW CAMERA! I am so excited to have it and have been using it all day today. So yeah, that means better quality photos for my blog which i'm really happy about and I hope you enjoy it too! If any of you may be wondering the camera I got is the Nikon D3200.


Now, onto the good stuff! As I said, I am going to share with you my perfume collection and I will also use the perfumes' official descriptions to give you an idea of their scent..


Harajuku Lover's - Love perfume 10ml and 30ml:


I love this perfume! First of all, how CUTE is the bottle top? I love the little dolls and their purple hair especially and they make such pretty decorative items even once your perfume is all gone which mine nearly are. These perfumes are super cheap but have a really nice smell, I only wish they came in bigger bottles. This fragrance is describe as delicate with notes of green apple, watermelon and raspberry.


Next - Paradise 100ml:


This is one of the cheapest of my perfumes and it's probably one of my favourites. I absolutely love Next perfumes and you get so much for such a little price. This is one of my old Next favourites and it really is lovely, especially for the Summer. This is described as a light and fresh floral fragrance with white floral and green notes.


Britney Spears - Midnight Fantasy 100ml:


I don't usually like celebrity fragrances and I'm not much of a fan of Britney Spears, but her perfumes are amazing. They are one of my all times fragrances and I love their fruity, sweet scents. This particular one I have used quite a bit of as you can tell and I need to get myself some more pronto! This perfume is described as a seductive floral bouquet with musk and dark amber notes.


Britney Spears - Curious 100ml:


Here I have another Britney Spears perfume and this is one of my very first fragrances that I bought for myself. I love the packaging and think it is very girly and pretty, especially with the little pink hearts around the bottle neck. This perfume is floral accented with Magnolia and vanilla-infused musk.


YSL - Babydoll 30ml:


This perfume I received as a birthday present. It looks really tiny but it's actually 30ml which isn't too bad and I have found that it actually lasts for quite a while. I wasn't very keen on this scent to begin with, but I have warmed to it and I do actually quite like it now. This fragrance has a fruity blend gooseberry, grapefruit and rhubarb as well as base notes of grenadine, peach and cedar wood.


Next - Just Pink 100ml:


Here we have another Next fragrance. This is the first Next fragrance I ever tried and it is still one of my favourites. This scent is simple yet still very lovely to wear. The packaging has changed over the years for this perfume and I really like this one. This fragrance is fresh green and floral and has soft fruit and pink blossom notes. 


Harajuku Lovers - Lil' Angel 10ml:


This is another Harajuku Lover's fragrance and again, how cute is the little doll?! I am such a fan of these perfumes but as I said before, I only wish they sold them in bigger bottles. This is a citrus/floral fragrance with raspberry, cranberry, violet and crystal amber notes.


Calvin Klein - Secret Obsession 100ml:


This perfume is more of a night time and is a little more on the musky side. I don't usually like musky fragrances but this one I do quite like. Not too keen on the packaging, mind you! This fragrance has notes of exotic plum, burnt amber, rose and cashmere woods.


Calvin Klein - In2U Her 100ml:


This is one my new favourite scents and I actually got this not too long ago for my birthday. The packaging kind of reminds me of Old Spice! This fragrance is described as having notes of pink grapefruit, sugar orchid and neon amber.


And that concludes my perfume collection! Thank you for reading and please feel free to leave any comments or post suggestions down below, they are very welcome and I love to hear from you!

REVIEW: Skinetica Anti-Blemish Treatment.

Hello lovelies! Today I have a review for you all.

Recently, I was contacted by Skinetica asking if I wanted to try out one of their products. Naturally, I said yes as I love trying out new skin products and treatments!


Skinetica is an anti-blemish, skin clearing treatment that doubles up as a toner. Skinetica contains no nasty chemicals or ingredients.

This product does not try out your skin as some toners do. It feels as of you are simply applying water to your face and it leaves your skin feeling softer and tighter.

You apply this product like a normal product; pouring it onto a cotton pad and dabbing it onto the skin. I then like to let it set and dry before applying a light moisturiser. Skinetica works for 12 hours even underneath moisturiser or make up and it can also be applied to other areas of your body that have blemishes like your back.

I have actually noticed a difference to my skin and I have been using Skinetic for a few weeks now. My skin looks clearer than before and the small blemishes I had have definitely faded and in some areas conpletely cleared. I wouldn't say it makes a massive difference within the stated 2-3 days but it definitely makes a difference over a week or so.

Overall, I think Skinetica is a very good skin treatment and I will definitely continue to use it as part of my daily skin routine!

You can get this product for yourself at Skinetica's website as well as in some Pharmacies.

As always, thank you for reading!

Have you tried Skinetica before? What did you think?
