Just been out and bought 2 new Chanel products, I've read a lot about them and seen them used in tutorials and thought I need to try them out!

Firstly Vitalumiere - Anti-fatigue, smoothing satin foundation.

I got shade 30 Cendre. I was looking for makeup for my kit so I need a range of shades. They all seemed quite yellow based and the fairest shade, 10 wasn't that fair and was very yellow!

The 30 suprisingly blended really well on my skin, giving great coverage, a great dewy finish...all in all a great foundation.

I highly recommend this foundation if your skin is on the dry side or you are over 30....IF you can manage to find a shade to suit your skin.

Second product was Soleil tan de chanel - bronzing makeup base.

O.M.G!!!!!!!! you HAVE to try this it is AMMMMAAAAAZZZIINNNNGG!!!!!!!

The lady in the shop did NOT do this product justice when she scraped a big blob, plopped it on the back of my hand and smeared it round turning my hand an unrealistic brown/orangy mess!

LUCKILY I have seen many youtube greats use this in tutorials and thought I would try it out. It is beautiful so natural yet can be layered, its texture is slightly creamy yet dries to a satin powder finish it is SOOOO blendable an absolute dream to work with.

Has anyone tried these products for themselves? xx

My favourite lipglosses - Collection 2000 Hotlights

I mentioned a little bit about these glosses in my "Pretty lips" post. I decided to do more of a review and show you some of the colours I have (so far).

I love these glosses because they are not sticky or gloopy, they are really sparkly/shiny but you cannot feel any "bits" in them, they don't really taste of anything and the packaging is FAB! The mirror and light attract so much attention when I use it EVERYONE wants to look at it.

At first I thought why would I need a light on my lipgloss I never do my makeup in the dark but you'll be suprised how it helps you see what you're doing even better especially in dim lit rooms, pubs or clubs.

I wear these either alone for a nude gloss or over lipsticks for amazing shine.

4 Sparkle over Maybelline 420 coral pop

4 Sparkle - alone for a beautiful glossy nude

5 Glow - alone, my favourite

I also have star which is another nice nude or beautiful over any lipstick more on the beige/gold side.

So if you haven't yet, you must try of these...I got mine from Superdrug and I think one from Asda around £5 each.

E.L.F eyes

My new E.L.F products mineral eyeshadows in Elegant and Caffinated and waterproof eyeliner pen.

Pretty lips

Loving this bright, pretty lip colour

I love, love, love these lipglosses, I have about 4 of these in various colours, they are lovely and shiny/sparkly. They have a mirror on the side and when you screw off the lid they have a light fitted in the lid....fab on a night out!!

These are the products I used to create this lip colour Maybelline lipstick in 420 coral pop and collection 2000 hotlights lipgloss in 4 sparkle.

My first E.L.F order


Sorry I haven't posted for ages, been hectic....I'm back now!

Just received my first E.L.F order, I've read a lot about the E.L.F products they are amazing value for money and there are some really good products so thought I would try some out.

Firstly my order arrived in only a couple of days and I had used the halloween code so I got 20% off my order so none of my items were over £3!!!! Bargain

I ordered 4 mineral eyeshadows (angelic, elegant, confident and caffinated), a waterproof eyeliner pen, a volumising and lengthening waterproof mascara, 2 pressed powders (Porcelain and buff), 4 brushes and 4 pairs of lashes....£32.00!

I've had a look at all the products and I'm impressed with everything so far...I'm yet to use them properly and test out their wear.

The waterproof eyeliner pen is FAB!!!!!!!!! I was using a virgin cosmetics one for ages that I loved and I used every last drop so I ordered this one to try and its great. The nib is quite stiff so you can get really good control and it lasts sooooo well! I paid £1.20 for it!

Some looks and reviews coming up so watch this space!

Whats your favourite E.L.F product? xx

Trying something new

Tonight I thought I would have a play with colour, I usually do bridal, day, evening looks nothing too wacky so I thought I'd try some really bright shades. I'm loving all the bright colours and nail polishes that are around at the moment so I thought why not have a play with some of the bright neon shades in my bargain eye palette.

Not a look I'd wear to tesco but pretty colours, reminds me of a sunset!

Then I thought I'd try something similar to one of the MAC trends for this years V festival and do a black and gold smoky eye, again using my bargain eye palette.

The MAC look is more dark all around the eye, where as I wanted to try and do a more wearable version!

What do you think of these two looks?
