Finally we have had a day of sunshine after all of this rain and windy weather. I went into town with my mum for a girly morning of shopping and breakfast. I got a few more bits from the River Island sale even though iv ordered things online from it too…oops. I will do a blogpost on those and some other fashion bits soon. This afternoon iv been a baking queen. Iv baked jam tartlets, rocky road and my giant vanilla cupcakes. I also picked up a few new beauty buys today which im in love with…
Mua Eyeshadow Palette “Winter Forest” | £4.00
This palette is stunning. I got this from the MUA website, I just had to have it. I don’t have many matte eyeshadows so this was perfect. The pigments are amazing.
Rimmel Apocalips “Eclipse” | £6.49
Iv seen this around on many blogs and iv not really been interested In them. I was in boots today and decided to have a look and thought this shade was perfect. It looks more red in the photo above but in person it is more of a purple shade. It looks so glossy and the colour is amazing. My mum got a matte one of this which I don’t do the whole matte lip look.
Iv been looking for a good liquid eyeliner for a while, im useless at winged eyeliner but I wanted to start practising. I heard this is great for beginners. The colour is amazing, the above photo is after one stroke. It dries pretty quick and doesn’t smudge.
Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil “Hazel” | £2.99
I wanted a pencil for the days I only want to lightly fill in my brows. This pencil is lovely, the colour isn’t dark and still gives me the natural brow look.
Seventeen Stay Pout “Just a Fling” | £4.49
Nude lips seem to be all the craze at the moment. I did want the Soap & Glory Nude lipstick but they had sold out. I was browsing the Seventeen section and came across this dark nude which is a better shade than the S&G one I originally wanted…Bonus. It’s a lovely shade just what I wanted. I applied it as soon as I got home and it felt wonderful, it doesn’t dry out like some lipsticks and lasts for ages.
Barry M Nail Polish “Damson” & “Paprika” | £3.99
Damson is a lovely blue shade iv seen around a lot and it is from their Gelly section which gives extra shine. I cant wait to wear it. Paprika is from their Autumn range it’s a lovely terracotta shade im in love.
Witch Foaming Facial Wash | £3.99
Iv recently ran out of my Simple foam face wash so thought I would try something different even though I do love the Simple one. I saw this and loved that it is for oily skin types. Anything that helps reduce excess oil is a great buy for me. We will see if it is as good as my Simple one.
