Another lip combo :)

Today i reached 50 followers yay :) Thank you to everyone who is following me, it is much appreciated!

Anyway back to the lip combo :) So i have been wearing these two products everyday for the past week, and i really enjoy the combination of the colours. They are:-
Natural Collection - Apple Blossom and Vaseline - Rosy Lips

I like the fact i am wearing a lipstick but also vaseline so my lips feel soft and smooth. My lips normally get incredibly dry when i wear lipsticks so i am constantly applying a lip balm of some sort. I love the moisturising feel of the vaseline on top, and it creates a lovely colour. This is what it looks like:-

What do you think? Do you like the Vaseline Rosy Lips? x

Mini haul

I went to Boots yesterday and picked up two lipsticks that i have been wanting for a long time. First one was Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in Ambre Rose 112, which is a lovely pink. It costs £6.99.

The second one was a Natural Collection lipstick in Apple Blossom that i have been wanting for months, and every time i go into Boots they never seem to have it in stock. So i was so happy when i finally spotted it, so i picked up two :) It is a lovely nude a dupe for GOSH Darling, which is great as it only costs £1.95.

The next item is a 17 solo eyeshadow in the colour Statuesque, which is probably my favourite eyeshadow, it is just such a beautiful colour and so easy to apply. I use this on days that i am in a rush or just need a neutral but stand out eye. It costs £3.49 and lasts for ages.

(Left: Ambre Rose, Middle: Statuesque, Right: Apple Blossom)

I then used my No7 voucher and bought a blend and contour brush, which is normally £6.50 but with the £5 off i got it for £1.50
And Finally i bought a shampoo and a hair mask from Boots own brand and they are both ‘Henna & Horse Chestnut’ suitable for brunette and red hair. The shampoo costs £1 and the mask costs £1.99! I must say that the shampoo and hair mask work amazingly together, they leave your hair so soft and silky. So i would definitely recommend them, the hair mask in particular!

Have you tried any of these products? x

Nail polish of the week :)

This week i painted my nails with a new nail polish called Orange Soda by 17, it is from their Candy Collection and costs £2.99. It is a lovely pastel colour great for the spring/summer season. The consistency is good so it is easy to apply, the only downside is that it is only a 8ml bottle, so i could buy a 10ml bottle from Barry M for £2.95. Although i will probably be making more purchases from the Candy Collection soley because of the great colours!

Viva Glam Gaga and Cyndi

So i recently purchased these two lipsticks, after everyone was raving about the gaga one. I know a lot of people have viva glam gaga but not many people seem to have viva glam cyndi, and i love them both! The cause is definitely a reason to go out and buy them...the money goes to MAC's AIDS charity. Below are some photos of both of the lipsticks on :-
Viva Glam Gaga - a lovely wearable pink.

Viva Glam Cyndi - a colour in between red and coral. It is very wearable as the colour is not to shocking, but a lovely soft red colour.

Have you purchased these lipsticks, and what's your view on them? x

Favourite lip combo :)

So i wear this lipstick and lip gloss all the time, especially when i am wearing a dramatic eye look.

GOSH Darling and Raspberry Ripple by Natural Collection. These two go so nicely together, and if you're afraid that a nude won't suit you, then i would definitely recommend this to you, as it turns the nude shade to more of a lovely light pink :)

Gosh Velvet Touch Lipstick 134 Darling is really well known, so many people love it and it retails for £6 at Superdrug :) It's not too drying or too light it's very wearable.

Raspberry Ripple is from Natural Collection, Boots own brand and it retails for £1.99. It is not long lasting but it gives a lovely colour.

Here is a photo of my lips :- (without flash)

Have you ever tried this lip combo, what did you think? x

Dress of the month

I normally purchase a going out dress every month or so depending whether i know if i am going out for something special i.e a friends birthday or catchup.

Although i may have a lot of dresses, when looking through my wardrobe i realised 95% of them were either on sale or had some sort of student i do not feel guilty that i have spent a lot on a dress :)

So i've decided i am going to start a series of showing you my favourite going out/party/evening dress each month. As i have not been out this month, i will show you a dress i loved wearing in April.

Here it is:-

So this is a stripy black and white dress, quite nautical. It is very simple but i love the way it fits, it clings to the right areas and the material is really nice. This dress is from New Look and i think it was originally £18 or £20 i can not remember but i got it for £14 which is a bargain :)

The shoes are also from New Look and they were £20 but i got them with a 20% student discount in November and i love them! So woohoo another bargain £16 :)

And the bag is from Primark for around £4-6 i can not really remember.

Here is a VERY posey photo of me, showing the entire dress lol:-

Did you have a favourite dress in April?

Primark dress

I bought this red dress 2 weeks ago when the weather was lovely, i really love it. I bought it thinking about the holiday i'm going on in June and this is what it looks like:-

These are the reasons why i love it:
1. It's red, one of my favourite colours and great for the summer.
2. The length of it, it just touches my knee - lovely for a day dress, beach dress or to dress up for dinner out in the summer.
3.The stripes are great... they are different on the tummy area so it hides your tummy but emphasises your hips :)
4. It was £5!! always a bonus!

Here is a photo of me wearing it with my new Primark jean jacket that was £13. This was late at night so i'm all natural with no make up :) x
