Winter Haiku

I heard a drizzle
Could it be rain I wonder
Suddenly it stopped

Rain MDR1

I hear the window

Creating vibrant Music

Pitter Patter Rain

rain on window

I hear the Silence

The skies begin to clear

I see the Rainbow

rainbow

I just cannot wait

Till the sun shines on my face

Bright days are awesome

January Favourites (2012) – Revlon/BarryM/Rimmel/NYC/MeMeMe,

Hiiiii everyone, wow, I’ve been super busy, but I thought I’d take out some time to show you all my January product favourites, please let me know if you would like more like this, so I can do them monthly for you! =)

I’ll begin with lipsticks, because I’ve been going through a lipstick craze, I am totally and utterly obsessed right now, and that’s the nicest way of putting it. I think I’ll be buying a whole load more next month, so brace yourselves =P

I must admit I never was a big fan of lipsticks and I never did think I would be, so without further delay, here’s my top favourite lisptick picks this month:

I was desperate to try out the Revlon lip butter, I got mine in Tutti Frutti (Left) and candy apple (Right), I love them both, the colours are fab, not too pigmented but enough colour to be able to notice, super moisturising, just a great GREAT buy! The next colours I would like to try are Creme Brulé, Cotton Candy, Raspberry Pie and Berry Smoothie.

I first got Cherry Blossom (Left) and Kiss me Coral (Right), I loved them instantly, Cherry Blossom is a Pearl finish and the other is a creme finish, I love the creme finish, but they’re both moisturising. I loved them soo much and the colours are so vibrant and super pretty, the red is perfect for the cold days, it adds a touch of colour to your face.

This is Rimmel Londons Lasting Finish lipstick in Sugar Plum, I think plums look awesome in the Winter!

Another one of my favs this month.1359646382853

 

Although this hot orange is more a spring colour, due to my pigmented lips, the colour does not come out as bright and I wear it more like a lip balm, both the Revlon balm stain in Rendezvous and the Chit chat lipstick are pretty much the same shade on my lips. The Revlon one leaves a stain but the other does not. The chit chat costs only a £1 and is really nice on the lips, the Revlon cost £7.99 but it’s super awesome and well worth the price, I will be trying out more of the balm stains soon.

I had to go back and get another Revlon so I chose a purple/pinky lipstick, nothing like the plum I showed you earlier, it’s much more vibrant and feels sooooo much nicer on the lips. This is Wild Orchid from the super Lustrous range and it is a pearl finish, I like to sometimes pat this on my lips to make it less vibrant and add a lip balm or gloss over it! =D

In terms of eyeliner, I have been loving this white kohl eyeliner by NYC it has done a great job at 8:30 in the morning to make me look wide awake when I’m getting ready for work, a great buy!

million dollar rock

In terms of foundation, this has been my favourite for this month, just mix a little with moisturizer and dab it on your face, blend, and you’re good to go! Makes you look flawless and feels light on the skin like a BB cream, it also makes you look super radiant due to the blue tint.

In theme with the flawless look, these two are great. The BarryM dazzledust in Pink/Gold, can’t find a name or number sorry, but it’s just great for this month or any month you want a bit of sparkle in your eye.

The MeMeMe Beat the Blues in MoonBeam is a dupe for the Benefit High Beam, it’s great if you want to fake a natural glow, looks great on your cheek bones, the bridge of your nose and your cupids bow. I like to use it on the eyebrow bone and inner corner for more dazzle.

I have been loving the Wilko baby Oil for my hair this month and as you can tell I’ve used it more than my usual one, though they’re both great, I think I’ll be repurchasing my new favourite instead from now on, it has aloe vera inside it and it smells great, I love that the formula is thicker too, it’s great as a conditioning mask before you wash your hair and I’ve seen an improvement on how my hair feels too.

These have been my favourite body sprays this month, In order of my most favourite, out of all my favourites. I’ve already used up my Sainsburys one, I just lovee ittttttt, they all smell a little bit musky, which is great, I love musk.

So that’s it for my January Favourites, can’t wait till next month,

Hair Products I’m Loving ATM (Jan 2013)

Heyyy guys

I am obsessed with hair products and I would say I go through my hair products fairly quickly, and I have tried and tested MANYYYYY from high end to high street (Drugstore)

Here are my current favourites:

Hair Product MDR

1) Pure Coconut Oil by Inecto:

Inecto pure coconut oil

125ml which is a good amount, I got mine for £1:75 from a local Chemist which is very cheap, yayyy, and its made from Pure Coconut Oil which is fab, it smells soooo yummy, it’s meant to detangle, nourish and moisturise, and it does just that, it’s so hydrating and since I don’t use a conditioner in the bath, I rely on a great leave in one, and this is the best I have seen so far, and it works as a great detangler even when your hair isn’t damp. It comes with a pump and comes out quite runny but it doesn’t give out so much product in one pump which is great and I spray pump straight into my damp hair and comb through.

2) [Urban Therapy] twisted sista de-Frizz conditioner:

Twisted Sista de-frizz conditioner

The one I got was 200ml, I got mine for £1.99 from Bodycare.I used to get the serum version which is the clear one, it smelt strongly of watermelons which I hated and it was so small and cost a lot, but then I found this one, which is much better, it’s the cream version, the only downfall is that the other one came with a pump, but I don’t mind too much. I use this at the very ends of my hair, just the tips and use it more like a nourishing cream, it works really great since my hair ends are dryer than the rest of it. This is great as you don’t even need to use that much, I use two pea sized drops and that’s enough for the ends and I have pretty thick dense hair. It’s supposed to calm, sooth, detangle, take away frizz and make your hair ready to style. The one thing that’s really noticeable is that it makes your hair so smooth and silky after using it and definitely makes combing easier.

3) Gliss Hair repair for brittle dull hair:

I got mine for £1.99 from Superdrug, I really love the Gliss range, especially the toner and hair repair spray, not because they work great, but they leave my hair spelling sooo nice, the come in spray bottles, for ease of application, they don’t really do anything for my hair, not that I’ve noticed, but I am totally and utterly in love with the fragrance!!!! The one I am mentioning is actually a leave in conditioner, it does make your hair shiny though, but I already have glossy hair and just prefer the non shiny matte hair =D Shiny black hair tends to look grease =( *sigh*

4) Loreal Elvive Damage Care:

Its a spray version and it contains ceramide which is supposed to seal damaged hair, it smells sooo nice, I love it, certainly does not feel heavy on the hair, the lightweight feeling means you can use a lot of product but feel like you’re barely wearing anything. This one is more difficult to find, but worth trying out. Especially if you use a lot of heat on our hair.

So they are my current favourites, I am looking into a new oil for my hair, currently I’m using Johnsons baby oil/Wilko made baby oil in Aloe Vera, I love the wilko one, it smells soo nice a little bit more thicker than the Johnsons and smells nicer, works real good. I’m looking into Moroccan Oil atm, but it’s sooo darn expensive, let me know if it’s worth it if you’ve tried it out, I;ve heard mixed reviews on that one.

Well that’s all for now, hope you liked this, let me know if you want more hair product reviews,
