Tales of a Pale Face Autumn Beauty Swap

I love beauty swaps, so when Kat tweeted that she was organising one, I signed up straight away.  I was paired up with Lisa  who definitely got the ball rolling on this one because i've been so behind on emails lately so thank you for being patient with me! After we'd decided on a £30 budget, it was time for the shopping to begin... Soap and Glory Clean On Me Shower Gel You can never have enough mini products. I've reviewed this before here. REDKEN Smooth Lock Shampoo and Conditioner Champney's Distant Shores Body Scrub This smells amazing so much so that I haven't brought myself to use it yet. It contains mango passionfruit and citrus oils. Dr. Bronners Magic Soap LUSH Bubblegum Lip Scrub I've had one of these before and loved it but I had to throw it away as it expired so i'm glad to have a fresh one! My lips definitely need it now that the weather has changed. Seventeen Stay Pout Lipstick in Rulebreaker R

Empty Products

I've fallen behind on empties post so once again there's quite a collection! Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation x 3 - All of these were near the bottom and i'd kept them to get the remains out by leaving them upside down hence there's 3 in one go! As you can see I've been repurchasing this foundation though, it's a great foundation for the price. Bioderma 250ml x 2 - I was a Bioderma convert and it is amazing however, recently i've been trying the L'Oreal Micellar Water with similar results so if you're on a budget it's definitely worth giving it a go! Benefit They're Real Mascara - Everybody loves this mascara and I was behind on the hype but I can agree, it is a real good mascara lengthening, volumizing but natural too. Katy Perry Eyelashes - Oh Honey - I really like the Katy Perry Eyelashes and have tried a selection of them. I would repurchase these. Eylure are a winning eyelash company so add Katy Perry into it and it&

OOTD - Wrecking Ball

My leather jacket has been my staple piece in my wardrobe for about the last 5 years. I'm pretty sure that I got it when I was about 16 and have worn it to death. It's now a bit on the small side and has some rips in the lining but I still love it. The other day, we were food shopping in Tesco when they had a sale rail downstairs. Not purposely looking, I saw some black quilting in the middle of it and picked it up to have a look. It was this faux leather jacket reduced from £32 to £15 and it was in my size! I've just gone to see if it's still available on the website to put the link in and it turns out it's full price on there so I don't know why mine was reduced! Quilted Faux Leather Jacket: Tesco £15 Striped White Top: H&M £12.99 Jeans: River Island  Frilled Socks: Ebay  £6ish Cut Out Boots: New Look  £24.99 As my boots have cut out sections, I feel more comfortable wearing all black socks so I looked on ebay to see about some f

MAXFACTOR Whipped Cream Foundation Review

I first swatched this Maxfactor Whipped Cream Foundation at the Merry Hill Autumn/Winter Event . It was based on the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation but better.  The Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse was one of the first foundations I can remember using at school. I'm pretty sure that it probably made me orange and broke me out but I carried on using it anyway. Maxfactor wanted to create a mousse foundation but overcome the downfalls of Maybelline.  Maxfactor have made their mousse hydrating which was a problem with Maybelline as it was drying and cakey.  On first impressions the texture was really nice and I originally swatched the ivory shade. Straight after the event, me and Clare went to Superdrug and Clare picked it up straight away and managed to get it on offer at £7.99 rather than it's retail price of £9.99 . I went home and tried a few sachet samples that I had of it over the next couple of days. Then, I was sold and ended up going to Boot&

Wedding OOTD - Cobalt Blue

Last month, my cousin got married and here's what I wore: Dress: H&M Bag: TK Maxx Tights: TK Maxx Heels: Dune Necklace: NEXT Bracelet: Pandora I frantically went to the shops on the morning of the wedding to find a dress to wear. It was the typical scenario of having plenty of more than suitable dresses in your wardrobe but not wanting to wear any of them. I ended up buying a few skirts and a dress but not to wear to the wedding! As a back up plan, my friend had lent me this dress the day before which was perfect. Thanks Em! What to wear to an Autumn/Winter wedding? xxxx Tasha
