* Bourjois Paris Collection *

Hi guys

So it all began when I was looking for my first ever foundation, I was in my final year of University and thought ‘Damn! It’s about time lol

I ended up getting the wrong shade and since I bought two on the same day they both were way too dark for me. This is when I realised that my hands were darker than my face =/ Awkward.

Anyhow, I wasn’t too bothered, I just use loose powder over it that is skin tone and it works fab.

I did think they were quite good at first, but if you forget to set them, they do oxidise in the air and make your face shine like mad. If you have dry skin like mine then you will LOVE these, they feel quite hydrating and since they are a thin formula, it’s easy to apply all over the face, you can even use your hands, no need for sponges or brushes. Due to the consistency of the foundation, it helps give you a nice fresh a dewy look and does NOT cling to any dry spots that you may have, which is awesome. Most of the time when I apply make up I feel like I’m ruining my face, but not when I’m using the healthy mix, it has some fruits in it, that help hydrate and give your face some radiance.

 

Sometimes when I’m in a rush I mix the 123 with my normal moisturiser and make my own BB cream. The 123 has particles that help remove redness and dullness and corrects the skins problematic areas by covering up blemish marks.

Any one who knows me knows that I am a big fan of eyeshadow! These trios are ideal if you are beginner. There’s one shade for the highlight under the brow, one for the lid and one for the crease. You can also use the crease shadow to create depth at the side of your eyes, or use the lightest shade to highlight the inner corner of your eye.

The Bourjois Eye liner is my all time favourite, and I will repurchase again and again, I love it, I don’t have one bad thing to say about it, Pleaseeeeee don’t let them discontinue!! I don’t know what I would do. At one point I was mad about the Maybelline reclining pencil, I think it was called The Linermatic or something, but it had so little product and ran out very quickly. At the same price you get a Bourjois pencil with a sharpner at the end of it, how adorable! It’s thick and creamy and last forever and ever, very good buy for your money.

My first ever coloured liner was the blue one by Bourjois, it was a present given to me by my big sister. I love using it one waterline and adding the black liner over the top, it looks great, it comes out as a dark teal colour with some brightness of the turquoise colour showing through, I used to wear that look all the time.

 

Hope you liked looking at my collection, there’s more on it’s way

* Rimmel Collection*

Hey party people

I thought that It’s about time I post up my collections, since I took and uploaded all these pics months ago, I guess I was being slightly lazy. You may have already noticed, my favourite product to buy from Rimmel are Mascaras lol I do go through them a lot, so here are the ones I’m using at the moment, I don’t use all four at the same time, but I usually use the lash accelarator (the old version) mixed with one other. I’m not a big fan of spider lashes, but I do appreciate voluminous long lashes *damn you little brother who was born with hugeee girly thick long lashes – I officially hate you*

2013-08-19 13.57.22

My favourite mascara is obviously the lash accelerator, which by the way is the first one in line, with the lime top and black body. I’ve used it sooo sooo much that the name has rubbed off, oops! I really can’t wait to use the new version, I hope it’s just as great. Sometimes companies try too hard to upgrade a product and sometimes it just doesn’t work out. I love using it with the Collection 2000 (Now called Collection) Magi Length Mascara or the Maybelline Define-a-Lash. Try it and let me know what you think!

 

2013-08-19 13.57.42

 

Oooh they look like fancy girly skyscrapers haha. P.s. I hate the nail varnish! It has a long thick brush, apparently the new so called *maxi brush* its huuuuuuge and is supposedly mistake free. Please tell me who has finger nails THAT big? I would say my nails are quite big, but heck, obviously not!

Anyhow… this is my Rimmel Collection =D

Haaaaallo friendly people!

Ok I’ll be super honest here, I don’t have much of a collection! But I do LOVEEEEE their lip products, even though I only have a few, but for me, this is A LOT! since I don’t really wear any of these outside of the house, just inside, for me myself and I!

 

2013-08-19 13.47.20

 

The first two are lip butters, I love them soo much. They are soo smooth and delicious lol its like wearing lip balm and the thing I like the most is they have a subtle tint of colour to them, so they’re not too vibrant. If you’re nervous trying bright colours on your lips or are new to lipsticks, these are fabulous. =D

 

2013-08-19 13.47.48

On the other hand, if you’re a vibrant lip girl, then they have lots and lots in store for you. I decided to get three different shades, sometimes I do mix them and come up with my own unusual but super trendy lip colour, other times I mix and dab the main colour off to lessen the intensity, to make a subtle but noticeable stain on my lips. People usually stick to one colour, e.g. Nudes, I say be a little brave and a little different, sure nudes are great and easy to pull off for everyday/work purposes, but why not try stand out in a crowd and be a show stopper =P

 

2013-08-19 13.47.34

 

So here’s a birds eye view of all the colours, my favourite to wear right now is the ‘Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain’ in Rendezvous but in my opinion way too expensive for a lip stain/balm, I do like the MUA power pouts (I think they’re called) much cheaper and do the same thing.

 

So there it is, my Revlon collection, small but one of my favourite collections, be on the lookout for an upcoming post where I will be teaching you how to make a cheap, affordable and eco-friendly storage place for all your lip products,

Hey Guys ^-^ ❤

So this is basically exactly what the title suggests. A lot of these were recommended by friends and I really need to start reading them. Most of these books are part of the ‘Dystopian’ genre which basically means the novel is set in a futuristic world, where utopia, the idea of paradise, or like heaven on earth, is gained at shocking costs.

1) The Matched Trilogy – Ally Condie – [Matched, Reached and Crossed]

Bubbles ^-^

2) Light – Micheal Grant [From the GONE series – GONE, HUNGER, LIES, PLAGUE, FEAR and last but not least LIGHT ! :3 ]

This is an AWESOME series guys!

This is an AWESOME series guys! Read them all apart from LIGHT which I cannot wait to start!

3) Delirium Trilogy – Lauren Oliver – [Delirium, Pandemonium and Requiem]

You should also check out 'Before I Fall' by the same author. Not dystopian, but powerful

You should also check out ‘Before I Fall’ by the same author. Not dystopian, but amazingly powerful<‘3

4) The Mortal Instruments  – Cassandra Clare – [City of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass, City of Fallen Angels, City of Lost Souls, City of Heavenly Fire]

Must start reading these ASAP :P

Must start reading these ASAP 😛

5) The Infernal Devices – Cassandra Clare – [Clockwork Angel, Clockwork Prince and Clockwork Princess]
