Nars blush in Orgasm

After hearing so many bloggers rave about this I finally decided to bite the bullet and order it online. At £19.50 it was far from inexpensive but hopefully I'll wear it so much it'll be worth it!

I love this's beautifully sheer! And to be honest, I notice the glitter in the pan but not on me, which is probably a good thing I keep my makeup fairly natural. I've had it for about 3 weeks now, and I still don't get tired of opening it up and gazing at it...weird, I know!

Wish it had a little more staying power for the price, but I can live with it, just means I pop it in my bag when I'm going out =)

The packaging does get quite dirty, kind of like my MAC eye shadow palette. I just use one of my makeup wipes to clean it every once it a while because it's a rubbish-ish texture (hard to explain!) so it looks messy easily

have you tried this? were you as pleased as me with it?

Superbalm by Liz Earle

Can you believe how quickly the weather has changed? it's been playing havoc with my skin, hair and especially my lips! I find everything dries out so quickly when it's cold and miserable outside so I've been using this Superbalm from the Liz Earle range.

I got it from the website after my sister-in-law recommended it and so far it's been a godsend! I've been using it on my lips, nose (as its all red and dry from constant rubbing with tissues) and even my cuticles because I spend a lot of time looking after my nails but they look dreadful if the cuticles are all ragged and dry

What are your favourite winter products?

Christmas wish list!

Hope you are having a great weekend and havent had to spend too much time out in the cold!

I spent yesterday doing some Christmas shopping and decided to make a wish list of my own because there are so many awesome products that I'd like to get my hands on

Karen Millen dress. Out of my price range but I adore it

DNKY - I'm sure most people have tried this and it's an old fav of mine!

I can't get enough of the L'Occitaine products

Heard great things about the Laura Mercier glosses, havent tried them

Lush gift box, so pretty and smells lovely

Clinique 3 step system

I've heard so many positive things about this range that I decided it was time to give it a try. I bought the cleanser, toner, moisturiser and the 15 minute turnaround mask. The assistant at the beauty counter was really helpful and spent a while talking about my skin (apparently I have to use number 2 from the range - there's 4 different ones available depending on your skin type)

Been using this for a few days now and I'm not overly impressed so far but I'm going to give it a full 6-8 weeks before I completely make up my mind!

Clinique seems to be one of those brands that everyone loves but I've only tried their mascara and lipsticks in the past. After spending a small fortune on these items I really hope they are worth it!

Winter booties

Know what I really dont get? Items of clothing that dont do what they're supposed to! Like gorgeous fur lined boots that would be perfect for keeping your feet toastie warm in winter - except that the toe is completely missing! Boggles my mind.

But talking of boots I wanted to mention a few pairs I've spotted and would really like to get my hands on!

have a great weekend =)

MAC tartan collection!

I was really excited about the Venomous Villians collection and bought way to many items from it and I am even more excited about this one! I know tartan isn't for everyone and I know a lot of people who would be put of this collection just because of the packaging but I think its gorgeous.

Like most of you lovely bloggers out there I probably wont actually need anything from this range but thats certainly not going to stop me buying anything =)

Is it not just the most christmassy collection you ever saw? Well the red ones anyway! =)

My style Inspiration!

There are some girls who just always seem to get everything right from their hair and makeup to their clothes, shoes and handbags. these are some of my favourites. I find them to be inspiring in so many ways but mostly I just enjoy looking at pretty pictures of them all dressed up =)
