Make up :)

So, make up :)

We have a Rimmel London Stand where i work, so i get a slight discount of some items :)

i was using the Rimmel 16 hour foundation in shade 200 beige but, with this very sad winter we've been having, i've gone really pale and had to get a shade 100 ivory :O i bought it in the new stay matte rimmel foundation and at the moment i'm not that impressed, it doesn't give as much coverage as i'd like. £4.49 for me

Next, i got a Rimmel Metallic Cream Shadow innumber 51 SOHO which is a light pink, i already have it in 71 KENSINGTON which is a silver glitter colour :) It works as a good base :) £2.49 for me

Then, i got a Rimmel Special Eyes Duo Shadow in 383 BUDDING STAR which has a shimmery white shadow and a matte pale green :)£???

NOW, even more of a bargain than my staff discount = poundland!!!

The other day, ***Sprinkleofglitter*** did a post about this. ( i was going to link her blog, but bloggers telling me it's gone???) i thought it was crazy but as me and my friend were passing poundland on the way to the bus stop we thought we'd have a look. So, all of this cost £3!!!

Maybelline dream mousse eyecolor 07 divine lilac

Revlon Colorstay eyeshadow in 99 Charcoal

Almay powder light/medium 200 ( i think this is an American brand - i've heard about it on youtube videos)

how impressive is that ;)

Then, a few people have been raving about the Primark foundation/concealer brush but, i didn't really need one so, i thought i'd try the blush brush. it looks nice and pink but i don't think its really firm enough for a good application.




  1. How does the Rimmel Foundation work on you? Does it really stay matte?
    ...and everything girly under the sun!

  2. Yes actually, the foundation does stay matte for now. We'll see how it copes with the hot weather :) it just doesn't give much coverage.

    Nice blog :)

My Roaccutane Journey

This post is more audience specific than usual but I hope it may be of help to anyone going through a similar situation. I want to give you an insight into my Roaccutane journey as I know I often turned to searching Google for answers. Never did I think i’d be posting this on the internet but here goes...
Onto the back story, I had oily/ combination skin as a teenager and suffered with the usual teenage spots that cleared up as I approached my 20’s. Later, I was on the combined contraceptive pill and decided to take a break from it when I was around 23. I stopped it for 6 months and was hit with a backlash. Stopping the pill and a change in hormones is the only explanation I can put my breakout down to.
My skin broke out significantly. I had courses of Lymecycline prescribed and Zineryt (Zinc & Erythromycin) Topical Lotion. With minimal success from these, I was referred to a dermatologist.

Before all of this, I could probably count the number of times I had left the house without ma…

Top Nail Varnish Picks For Autumn/ Winter

Autumn/ Winter to me means wearing a lot of grey and black with bursts of khaki and burgundy for colour. Literally, if I see anything khaki coloured, i'm in love and now that's transitioned into my nail varnish thanks to last month's Glossybox. 
Here are my current go to nail varnishes, although I did place a Boots order on Cyber Monday for some of the Revlon Gel Envy polishes so there could be some additions to this soon!

Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish in 'Kensington High Street' Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in 'Plums the Word' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Barely There' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Glossy Seal' Nails Inc London Polish in 'Battersea Park' Color Club Nail Varnishes have a great opaque consistency and you can easily get away with one coat. I actually prefer the regular Nails Inc varnishes over the gel effect ones but I love this burgundy shade. Sally Hansen varnishes have a great brush and this plum colour is perfe…

Statement Necklaces - NEXT

I have been searching for the perfect statement necklaces for so long without success. I'm a bit too fussy you see. The majority of statement necklaces in the shops are gold and it's rare for me to wear gold jewellery; I much prefer silver!

In all the shops i've looked in, there has always been something not quite right: too big, too spiky or the wrong colour. I'd actually given up hunting for one but this morning, I ventured into NEXT.

Next isn't somewhere that I usually go into but I was surprised at how many nice things they have and there were definitely a few that I wanted!

I couldn't choose between the following two necklaces so treated myself to both! They were quite hard to photograph but i've linked the items so you can check out the stock photos on the NEXT website.

Mix Plate And Crystal Effect Statement Necklace £18

Short Crystal Effect Necklace £14

Other items I considered buying:

This grey jewelled clutch bag caught my eye and was £20.
I was reall…
