Tilbury Treats

1 comment

It was my 22nd birthday last week and I received so many lovely gifts, mostly of which were of the 'makeup kind'. Charlotte Tilbury products were on my list specifically, as I hear nothing but great things about that lady and after trying some of her products, I can completely see why. Not only are the products fantastic, they also look beautiful, which means they make great gifts; unwrapping a present to reveal that shimmering rose gold packaging would just be so special. I was lucky enough to be given the signature makeup bag & the mini lipstick charms from my Sister, and the Film-star bronze & Glow from my Boyfriend.

The Signature Makeup Bag is available from John Lewis for £25 and features kiss prints in the classic Charlotte Tilbury colours on one side and her famous quote 'Give a woman the right makeup and she can conquer the world' printed on the other side.
The new christmas collection included the Mini Lipstick Charms, which are made so you can hang them on your tree as a decoration. They come in the shades 'So Marilyn' a classic red and 'Penelope Pink' & 'Bitch Perfect' which are both pink nudes. Available from Charlotte Tilbury for £29.
Lastly, the Film-star Bronze & Glow. This has been on my wish list for SOO long, so I made a very subtle (strong) hint to my boyfriend about this one. It is a contour and highlight compact that comes in the most stunning gold packaging that would make any girls heart melt. Available from Selfridges for £49.

My Christmas Red Lip - MAC All Fired Up

Leave a Comment
MAC all fired up retro matte lipstick

swatched in natural daylight

I love getting all 'dolled' up for an occasion, but unfortunately for some of us (including me!) them occasions where you go out feeling all glam don't come around very often. So, when christmas comes around, I don't think there's a better excuse to start digging out your sparkly dresses, glitter eyeshadows and of course that bright red lipstick you have been dying to wear.

 This year, I have been completely obsessed with one lipstick that has made me feel extra christmassy and that is All Fired Up by MAC. Now, I have featured this beauty a few times on my blog in the as it is one of my all time favourite shades from MAC, but it has never really been my go-to christmas lip. This is because the shade is not your classic, bombshell red that most people associate with this time of year. All Fired Up has a very pink undertone to it, which is very obvious when shown next to a shade such as Ruby Woo. I have been wearing this to all of my christmas meals & outings and always get so many compliments, it is a Retro Matte finish which means it has no shine and can be quite a dry formula, though when on the lips it doesn't feel drying at all.

 I feel like this is such a glamorous shade that every girl should have in their collection, I will definitely continue to wear it over the festive season!

Available online at MAC Cosmetics for £15.50

Merry Christmas

10 Stocking Fillers Under £10

1 comment

You've got the big presents out of the way, now it's time to think about the little things. Whether its treats to fill some stockings, or for that secret santa you've taken part in at work, here are 10 ideas that are sure not to break the bank!

These gorgeous makeup bags are perfect for any makeup lover. I love the cute cat ear detailing with added sparkle available from Asos for only £10 & this holographic snake piece from Topshop makes such a glamorous gift for only £8.

You can't go wrong with a jewellery when buying a small gift for someone. These stunning earrings for £10 from River Island would be great for christmas parties and this gold coloured double necklace from Topshop is a bargain at only £8.50.

This is a beauty blog so of course I had to add a few cosmetic bits! Boots is a great place to look this time of year as it has so many lovely sets that you can pick up at a great price. This Soap & Glory 'Bright & Bubbly' set is only £10 and includes 5 great products. For the makeup lovers, try No7 for some lovely little items, I love this silver glitter nail polish for a bit of christmas sparkle for only £7!

This cute mug would make a great little stocking filler for a girlfriend or even boyfriend who have just moved in together. This is only £6.50 from Asos and they have so many different ones on their website that would also make lovely practical gifts.

I think socks appear in most peoples stockings at christmas time, every year my mum buys me a pair of christmas novelty socks! These Pug ones from Asos are only £5 and come in cute bauble shaped packaging. 

This lovely little purse from River Island would be perfect for carrying your phone and other bits when on an evening out and the faux fur adds a touch of glamour to an outfit. It is priced at only £8 which I thought was amazing value!

Lush is the perfect place to go if you are looking for a gift. They do beautiful pre wrapped gift sets that are literally ready to be handed to the recipient. My favourite gift set of all time from Lush is the Snow Fairy, which is only £8.50.

November Beauty Favourites

1 comment

It is the 1st of December, (yay!) which not only means it's time to open your advent calendars.. it also means it's monthly favourites time!
Blimey, we sure are getting through these months aren't we? I feel as if I blinked and missed the whole of November, I think it is because I have been so excited for christmas, and my birthday on the 15th, that I have been wishing the days away. It is crazy to think the next monthly favourites I write will be in 2016! But like every month, I do have some fabulous products I have been particularly drawn to that are all listed below!

Urban Decay Naked Palette. Everyone knows & loves this holy grail palette so I wont go into too much detail. Every single shade is so pigmented and wearable, you really cannot go wrong with it. I have been wearing 'Gunmetal' blended all over the lid for the past few weeks and I love the smoky effect it gives with added sparkle. I love pairing it with a black winged liner and a khol liner through the water line for a really dark, intense look that makes my green eyes stand out. Available from Urban Decay for £38

MAC Brave Lipstick & Spice Liner. With the above eyeshadow, I love pairing it with this gorgeous brown/nude lip from MAC. 90s lips have been really in this year and this is one of my favourite lip combinations to achieve this look. I have been wearing this so much recently, as the satin finish of the lipstick and creamy texture of the pencil make them so wearable and easy to apply. Available from MAC Cosmetics for £15.50 & £12.50

Too Faced Blush. This gorgeous long wear blush in 'Justify my Love' has been my go to cheek product recently. This amazing blush looks almost too cute to use, but you only need the tiniest amount of product to achieve a gorgeous natural flush over the cheeks, this means it will take a while to ruin that gorgeous pattern imprinted on it! Available from Debenhams for £25

Too Faced Cocoa Contour. Contour palettes are everywhere recently with most brands having brought one out this year after people desired to have that 'Kim K' sculpted look. I have tried quite a few now, but this one from Too Faced is my favourite. It includes four powders that are easily blend able which makes it an amateur friendly palette. The 'Medium Cocoa' shade is the perfect grey based brown contour colour that is really the star of the show, while the 'Dark Cocoa' is great for those with darker skin and the other two shades make a great highlight, one with shimmer, one without. Available from Sephora
