Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss | Nooner


Working in a department store where an Urban Decay counter is present, could never be a good thing for my bank account! After spending most of my breaks, and browsing the counter before and after i start work, the glosses really caught my eye. Im loving the rose-kinda-gold packaging.. and after swatching them all, Nooner was the shade i needed! 

The super hydrating gloss is a gorgeous nude shade with a hint of peach, which makes a perfect everyday shade. The gloss leaves a very soft wash of colour, and a natural look to the lips. I love how long this gloss lasts on the lips - around 5 hours before it needs topping up!

I love how creamy and lightweight these feel on the lips, and if your looking a natural, every day gloss, id highly recommend Nooner! I cant wait to try a few of the more darker shades!

Nars Eyeshadow Duo - Alhambra





After having about 20 Nars Eyeshadow duo's on my wishlist, i finally took the plunge and bourght myself one - Alhambra. At £25, they are definetly pricey for two eyeshadows, but this is Nars we are talking about.

 Alhambra is stunning. The duo contains a gorgeous bright champagne shade, and a golden shimmery shade. The duo is crazy pigmented, and the shades really make blue eyes pop. They are shimmery, and frost finish like, but i love that! 
The formular is amazing, so creamy, blendable and NO fallout what so ever. The champange pink shade is amazing all over the lid and on the brow bone for brightening the eyes up.  I love the golden shade too for all over the lid.  

The only thing id say is that this duo doesnt come with a suitable crease shade, so i do have to keep my mac palette on me too, to blend something like Mac Cork in my crease for some definition. Also, when im super tan, the champagne shade doesnt show up so champagne-y, more on the white side.. So i'd definetly reccomend this little duo for anyone up to NC30 skintone.

That said, ive absolutly been obsessed with this duo and have been reaching for it everyday. Its definetly worth the money, and i cant wait to try a few more!

Benefit Rockateur Blush



Every Benefit blush ive tried, ive loved. I love the packaging and how stand-out, unique and girly it is! I had high hopes for Rockateur after falling head over heels in love with Dallas and Bella Bamba!

Rockateur is described as a rose gold.. Definitely not on my skin tone! For me, its a dusky light pink shade with a sheen finish. There are rose gold tones, but these do not show up on my skin. This blush does give skin a sunkissed look without looking too much. I love that you can use this blush lightly for a subtle light pink blush, or build it up for a more intense, kinda barbie pink.

The texture is super soft, and velvet like. Its so silky, it almost feels like a cream product. Rockateur blends into the cheeks like a dream. The blush does contain quite a bit of shimmer,  but i found it didnt emphasize pores at all! 

Obviously, everyones skin tone is different, but for me, i was slightly dissapointed in this shade. I dont find it to be very flattering on my skintone, and its not my prefered shade of blush for the moment. I definetly should have done more research before buying this blush, just because i expected it to be more deeper, like Dallas! However, its still a gorgeous blush - just not the shade for me at the moment! Id definetly recommend Rockateur for light skin tones!

Mini Urban Decay & Mac Haul




After using Benefit Browzingz for almost a year, when it ran out recently, i was ready to try something new. Urban Decay's Brow Box was on my wishlist to try, so i purchased it straight away in the shade Brown Sugar. The kit has two layers.. In the first one, there's a mirror, two shades, a darker and lighter brown, and a wax. 
In the second layer, is a magnifying mirror, two angled brushes and a pair of tweezers.
Ive been loving this brow kit and have been using it everyday. It gives a more natural brow, than the Benefit kit, and i find it to be more longlasting on my brows too! 


I also picked up the Mac Pro Longwear Concealer in NC20, for underneath my eyes. Ive been trying it out for about a week now, and am super impressed! I see what the hype is all about now. Its amazing coverage, and a little goes a reaaaaally long way, you need the tinyest amount! I can see why this concealer is so talked about!

Nars Laguna Bronzer - My New Favourite Bronzer | Review, Photos



After using the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess for almost a year, i thought it was time to try out a new one. The lid of Bronze Goddess eventually snapped off, and i was running really low on it. For £30, its not a cheap bronzer - but it was amazing, so worth it.




My new favourite bronzer.


I had heard alot about Nars Laguna, googled swatches, and fell in love. I knew i had to have it.. And recently Asos had a 10% off Beauty products, so i had to buy!
I love how natural this bronzer is, no orange tones, no grey tones either! The perfect, natural tan shade for me (mac nc30). This bronzer does contain fine shimmers in the pan, but these do not transfer onto the skin - well they dont onto mine! I apply Laguna to my cheeks, temples and down the nose to give me a sunkissed glowy tan. I love how it instantly warms the face up without looking muddy, or too much.

I LOVE the Nars packaging too, so sleek. I have also been loving this shade on my eyes too, to give some slight definition. For £27, it isnt the cheapest bronzer around, but its definetly worth every penny! If your looking for a new, high-end bronzer, id 100% recommend this beauty!
