Lipstick Collection!

I thought i'd share my lipstick collection with you. Below are the ones that are actually in the right storage place and not the ones chucked in bags everywhere.  35 and counting.... First up,  Elf  Rosy Raisin Natural Nymph These are good but I don't tend to reach for them so probably wouldn't buy more. They're from the mineral collection and were £3 each. L'oreal Caresse Nude Ingenue Lovely Rose - FAVOURITE Tempting Lilac - FAVOURITE These are a different story and my go to lipsticks at the moment. The nude doesn't really do much to my lips but I bought it because apparently it's Cheryl Cole's actual lipstick...  These were £7.99 each. Barry M - 100 - I think its called Bubblegum Pink. I can't see myself wearing this out unless its for fancy dress. I don't know how I ever wore it, it's hardly wearable! £4.99 No 7 - 60 - Chic - These 2 lipsticks are the same I think I got th

Everyday Make up!

I love a lie-in first thing in the morning, so I usually only give myself 5-10 minutes for make up application. As long as I look presentable, i'm happy. I don't need to impress anyone at work! I store all my everyday make up in this Betsey Johnson Leopard Print Bag from T K Maxx :) Here's the basics: Revlon Colorstay Foundation in 150 Buff £11.99 This has been my holy grail foundation for almost two years! My skin breaks out so easily and this is the only thing that i've been able to stick with! Applied with a sponge Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in 001 Transparent £3.99  I am a powder freak and go through one of these every 3 to 4 weeks! Excessive I know hence i don't use a high end powder! Also, an added bonus is that we have a Rimmel Stand at work so with my discount, i get it for around £3.20! Applied with Eco Tools powder Brush Stila Blush & Bronzer Duo in Pink glow This was a bargain at T K MAXX for £3.99! Applied with Eco Tools Bl

Shoe Haul and the Newlife Centre

I love shoes and simply have way too many! My fiancĂ©e is the manager of a shoe store but I still buy so many from elsewhere. Here are last weekends purchases... We have a store not too far away called the Newlife Centre. I'm not sure if they are everywhere but the one I go to is in Cannock, England. It is a charity where shops send there old season/faulty clothes that they haven't been able to sell for the charity to sell on for their benefit. So, it's all new stuff just really cheap! You have to sign up for a membership but its about £3 for a whole year and you can find some amazing bargains. These black shoes cost me £6.99! I adore the gems and they are originally from Jane Norman when they definitely would have cost a lot more! These wedges are originally from New Look and cost £6.99 too! They're really high but the platform means they're comfortable. Finally, these cost £4.99 from a shoe warehouse :) They were the last pair so I ha

Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet Haul

I've just had a lovely two weeks off work and spent the first in Weymouth and the second on an array of  day trips! I turned 20 a fortnight ago - ahhhh! My chosen treat was to go to Cheshire Oaks :) Its about an hour and a half away from where I live but the motorway journey was horrific! It felt so long and there were some terrible drivers! I signed up on-line and received a 10% discount card that you could use in almost all the shops. Well, onto what I bought :) First stop - Warehouse I purchased a top reduced from £30 to £15. Next - The Cosmetics Company Outlet! I was really excited to go to The CCO :) I picked up one of the MAC tins from the Tartan Collection for £27. It contains the Fresco Rose Paint Pot, a lipglass in Budding Romance, Zoomlash Mascara and Pink Split Mineralized Eye-shadow. Also from Mac, I picked up the Fresh Ice mineralized eye shadow for around £10 from one of the Winter Collections. Finally - L K Bennett I don't th
