Maybelline Colour Show Brocades Nail Polish - Rosy Rosettes


This is probably the first glitter nail varnish that I have owned since I was about 14 years old. I like the idea of glitter polish at Christmas time as I think it looks very festive. After browsing the aisles of boots for the perfect sparkly decoration for my fingertips I saw the new Maybelline Colour Show Brocade Polishes. I couldn't choose between Rosy Rosettes (a mixture of deep pink and gold glitter) and Knitted Gold (a mixture of yellow gold and rose gold glitter) so I bought both, but thought I would try out Rosy Rosettes first.

They are basically all things that I would be very happy to receive and a few have even been suggested to my family/husband this year.

Christmas Yankee Candle Haul


I never used to understand the appeal of candles. They look nice and smell nice but I just assumed it was the sort of thing I would buy, maybe use once or twice and then put away in a drawer and inevitably forget about. But, being a avid beauty blog reader I just kept reading rave reviews about the delicious scents of the likes of Yankee Candle, Neom, Diptique etc. Then a few of my friends started talking about how much they love scented candles, so I thought I'd see what all the fuss was about.

MAC Eyeshadow - Shale


Another month, another MAC Eyeshadow purchase. This is now the 6th shadow I have bought and I have had to transfer them all in to my Unii palette because I ran out of space in my e.l.f quad palette.

I recently popped in to MAC in the Westfield Shopping Centre in Stratford to do some swatching. Is it me or are the MAC sales assistant really intimidating?? And in my experience so far, not overly friendly.

Review - Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation


I don't normally gravitate towards matte foundations, instead I usually opt for a satin/dewy finish, but in last month's Glamour magazine there was a small sample of Rimmel's Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation so I thought I might aswell try it out.

Matte foundations like this are usually aimed at those with oily skin whereas my skin is normal to dry. I also didn't like the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse foundation so didn't have high hopes for this one.

October '13 Favourites


October has been a pretty uneventful month and I'm glad that it is finally November, because now I can officially start getting excited about Christmas!! 

Here are my favourites from October....
 

Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

This recent purchase is due to a small sample offering in last month's Glamour magazine. I trialled it for 2 days and purchased it a few days later. Impressive coverage and nice matte finish. A full review coming soon...

MAC Eyeshadow Addiction & Sumptuous Olive



I just couldn't stop at 4. I tried, I really did (kind of) but I can feel the addiction taking over. My name is Nicki and I am a MAC eyeshadow addict. It has been so much fun picking one eyeshadow every month (pretty much on pay day!) to add to my quad palette but now this palette is full (see my full palette here) and I have my eye on a 15 pan palette instead. It will take a long time to fill and way too much money (seriously £10 an eyeshadow is just ridiculous, I know that) but I just can't help myself.

The Body Shop Haul


I haven't really shopped at The Body Shop since I was a kid. I occasionally used to get things as birthday and Christmas presents and loved their body butters but I haven't tried anything recently.

I have seen a couple of interesting products on a few other blogs lately and was looking to try some new affordable skin care, so popped on to their website a couple of weeks ago and they had an amazing offer of £30 off when you spend £60! Being able to try £60 worth of products for only £30 was an offer I just couldn't resist.

e.l.f Brush Haul & Autumn Collection Free Gift!


I know, I know, not another e.l.f haul?! What can I say....you just can't beat the prices! Also, as they aren't sold in stores in the UK it makes sense to order lots so you don't have to keep paying postage. Plus hauls are just so fun!

I wanted to order the Eyelid Primer in my last haul but it was sold out. When I checked a few days ago it was back in stock and an hour later an order was placed for a whole box full of goodies. The best thing about this order is that e.l.f had a special offer, spend £20 and get a free mystery Autumn Collection gift! Even better!

My MAC Eyeshadow Quad - Complete!


If you are a regular reader of my blog you will know that for the past few months I have been slowly building a MAC eyeshadow quad palette. As MAC eyeshadows are pretty expensive (£10 per eyeshadow if you buy them in the pan) I had to spread it out and decided to buy one eyeshadow per month. The proper MAC Pro Palette (empty) is, in itself, £6.50 so I actually bought a much cheaper version for £1.50 from e.l.f.

As you can see, it is month 4 and I have finally filled my palette! I have to say, I am really happy with it! A lot of research was involved in this quad quest and I have looked at a shocking amount of swatches online and watched a crazy amount of YouTube videos to make sure my money wouldn't go to waste.

September '13 Favourites


September is a great month, a month of new beginnings and the start of Autumn. The leaves change colour, I get to wear my winter scarf again and out of childhood habit I automatically check the ground for fallen conkers. Here are the products I have been loving in September....

Makeup Brush Cleaning


For some it is a chore, although I know a lot of beauty bloggers actually really enjoy cleaning their makeup brushes, but whether we like it or not it is a necessity. After a certain number of uses, makeup brushes inevitably start to harbour bacteria, dust and dirt, and these are not things you will want to apply to your face along with your expensive foundation.

Makeup brush cleaning is very easy but can take a while depending on how many you use and how frequently you do so. It is best to clean them at least once every couple of weeks although once a week would be better. I am a bit lazy so I clean mine every other week.

MAC Club Eyeshadow - Review & Swatches


Month three of building my MAC quad and my eyeshadow 'Club' finally arrived! I order it from Debenhams because of the Beauty Card free shipping code and the first one that arrived was completely shattered. They packaged and padded it really well but unfortunately these things happen. A quick email to their customer services team and another eyeshadow was quickly sent on it's way to me.

Quite exciting actually because with a little white spirit hopefully I can salvage half of the broken one and have a spare in my Unii palette!

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey - A Surprising Review


I have had my eye on the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains for quite a long time and the colour Honey in particular. This is a highly recommended lip crayon on other blogs so I was excited when I finally got my hands on one and expected to love it.

Honey looks like a lovely natural pink blush colour so I thought it would make a great everyday lip product. It is very easy to apply and goes on smoothly. The appearance is glossy and as it's name suggests works as a stain so, once on, the colour does not transfer or disappear very quickly.

Autumn/Winter Haul


I get very excited when the season starts to change. It doesn't matter whether it's winter in to spring or summer in to autumn, for some reason I like knowing that the year is passing. I love spring/summer for the weather but I love autumn/winter for the clothes. I have always felt more comfortable in my winter clothes and I get very excited about wearing my coat, hat and scarf for the first time.

I love snuggling up at home in a thick jumper and a blanket with a cup of tea, and I secretly start getting excited about Christmas as soon as the leaves start to change colour in September (but sshhh don't tell my sister!!)

MAC 217 Brush Alternatives


The MAC 217 Brush is by far the most mentioned makeup brush in the beauty blogging world, except perhaps the Real Techniques Buffing Brush. As amazing as it sounds and no matter how many rave reviews I read, I just can't bring myself to spend £18 on one little eyeshadow brush. It just seems a bit ridiculous. I know many will claim that it is completely worth the money and they may be right, but for the time being I just can't afford it. But never say never eh?

In the meantime I have done a bit of research and purchased a couple of alternatives. I wouldn't be comfortable calling them dupes as I have not tried the 217 and couldn't guarantee but from other peoples recommendations they seem to be real possibilities.

If All My Makeup Disappeared...


After seeing Estee's (from Essie Buttons) YouTube video with the same title (see here), it got me thinking about the 10 products I would re-purchase if all my makeup suddenly disappeared.

There are maybe 4 products that I use pretty much everyday which would be obvious re-purchases but I couldn't wait to think about what the other 6 would be. As mentioned in my previous posts I have always loved wearing makeup but it wasn't until this year that I became full-on obsessed with the stuff! I have bought more makeup this year than probably the last 5 years combined.

It really got me thinking, out of all the new products I have researched, tried and purchased, which items could I not live without out? (A bit dramatic!) Or as this post suggests, which products would I prioritise if all my makeup disappeared?...

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette - Review & Swatches


I have read many reviews of this palette which were pretty much all positive but for some reason I was never too worried about picking one up for myself. On a recent day out with my lovely Uni friends who live way too far away, one of them asked for a recommendation of a neutral light brown matte eyeshadow, the girl does not like shimmer! I thought about it for a couple of days and it suddenly it dawned on me, the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette is the perfect eyeshadow palette for her.

August '13 Favourites


August has been a busy month and I have been rubbish at blogging. I just found it difficult to find time this month but I'm getting back in to the swing of things. As mentioned in a previous post I have also been a bit low on cash this month and haven't been able to try many new beauty products, but here is a run down of my August favourites...

Battle of the Maybelline Mascaras - The Falsies vs. The Rocket


When it comes to mascara Maybelline know what they are doing! I absolutely swear by Maybelline mascaras and don't even bother looking at other brands. If my regular Maybelline mascara isn't available  I just pick up one of their other offerings and trust that it will be exactly what I am looking for. They always seems to find a great balance between volume and length. I must state of course that I only buy the waterproof ones and the only time I have been disappointed by a Maybelline mascara was when I accidentally bought the non-waterproof version.

Battle of the Micellar Solutions - Bioderma vs. L'oreal


I started using the 'must have' Bioderma Sensibio H20 Micelle Solution at the beginning of June. I bought a 250ml bottle and after 2 and half months it has only just starting to run out, and that's after using it everyday, twice a day.

I have really enjoyed using it to take my makeup off at the end of the day and to cleanse my face before putting my makeup on first thing in the morning. I simply apply some to a cotton pad and wipe it over my face. To remove eye makeup it is better to hold the pad over the eyes for a few seconds which dissolves the makeup and makes it easier to wipe away.

e.l.f Shimmer Palette


Okay, I promise to stop with the e.l.f products soon! I know there have been a few, I mean seriously, how long can a blogger drag out one haul?! Unfortunately I have been very broke and busy this month so haven't been able to do much makeup testing or shopping. I wanted to do a post on this product though because it is really pretty and a great bargain buy!

e.l.f Twinkle Pink Blusher


In my recent e.l.f haul (see post here) I ordered one of their blushers in shade Twinkle Pink. I had heard that this could possibly be a dupe for the 'must have' Nars blusher in shade Orgasm which at £21.50 I really can't afford at the moment. The photo on the website did seem similar, it looked like a pinky-peach tone with a slight gold shimmer and it was only £3.75.

My New Favourite Eyeshadow Look - MAC and Topshop


It's month two of slowly building up a MAC quad and I purchased my second eyeshadow (read about my first one here). This was an easy choice as it comes highly recommended by a number of beauty blogs and is quite a hyped up shade. It is of course the stunning Satin Taupe, a very difficult colour to describe actually. I would say that it is a taupe with a mixture of grey, purple and brown tones and a slight silver shimmer.  It's a beautiful neutral shade but the purple/grey tones make it a bit different to all my other neutral brown shades.

Battle of the Anti-Redness Powders - Clinique vs. E.L.F


As someone with pale skin, red patches and areas of pigmentation can be very obvious and difficult to conceal. I have recently been experimenting with colour correcting powders (or de-redener powder things are the hubby likes to call them!) which not only set your makeup and help it to last longer but also help to mask redness and even-out skintone.

I started with Cliniques Redness Solutions Instant Relief Powder which is a yellow powder which you can read more about in my previous post here. Clinique's powder is very finely milled with subtle colour-correcting effects and does not look at all powdery once applied to the face. But at £25 for only 9.6g of product it isn't the most cost-effective daily solution.

July '13 Favourites


Another month, another monthly favourites post! Here is what I have been loving this month....

Sun Care  
The majority of July has actually been pretty hot and sunny so two of my favourites this month are products that have helped me cope in the heat. The first is the Piz Buin Allergy Face Cream SPF 50. I was using the Soltan Once Face 8 Hour Sun Protection Sun Care Cream SPF 30 which is meant to last 8 hours so is good for a pre-makeup application but I really didn't like the smell and it seemed to be causing a breakout so I switched back to my trusty Piz Buin which is much kinder to my skin and smells like holidays!

e.l.f Haul


When researching some US cosmetics for my friend's trip to Vegas I came across lot of e.l.f products. I had heard of the brand as they often come up in American beauty blogs but not so much British ones. I have always been intrigued by them, they are very cheap and seem to have a great range of products but I assumed I wouldn't be able to get my hands on them. When compiling the US Wish List post I actually landed on the e.l.f's UK website. Who knew?! I'm pretty sure you can't buy e.l.f products in stores in the UK but you can get them on their UK website!

Being a beauty blogger and figuring out that I could indeed buy some e.l.f products inevitably led to a massive order being placed and a haul post of course!

Not only are the products really cheap with none of the above products being over £4 each, but they also had a special offer of 30% off and free delivery when you spend over £25! It would have been rude not to.

I ordered 8 products which totalled just over £25 and I got it for about £17!

The US Wish List


One of my loveliest friends is a very lucky lady indeed as she has just left for the bright lights of Sin City! I know that if it was me heading to Vegas I wouldn't be doing much gambling (my gambling technique is £5 on red and £5 on black  and you always win!) instead I would spend all my time and money beauty shopping.

So when this lovely friend and possibly my biggest blog supporter text me a week before she left asking for some US beauty recommendations I took it as a very serious request and an important time consuming project to put a little list together for her.

Travel Perfume Atomisers

Just a quick one today folks. I thought I would let you know about these really handy perfume atomisers that I bought on Ebay. My handbag is far too heavy as it is to carry around a big bottle of perfume as well, but it's nice to have the option to top up your perfume and spray your favourite scent while you're out and about.


These aren't the Travalo atomisers which have become very popular but are actually a copy and you get get them from about £2 (I think the Travalos are about £10 each). They are a bit smaller but I actually prefer that as I can put them in the little makeup bag in my handbag.

MAC Espresso Eyeshadow For Eyebrows

Wow Mac eyeshadows are expensive! I wanted to create a quad palette but then realised that at £10 a pop and £6.50 for just the empty palette it would cost me almost £50 to do so. That is pretty ridiculous when you think that the Urban Decay Naked Palette costs £36 for 12 different shades!


But, unfortunately the beauty blogger in me just had to try a MAC eyeshadow. I thought if I bought one every couple of months I would eventually have my quad and hopefully wouldn't feel the pain in my purse quite so much. The only problem is that I don't have a MAC counter anywhere near me and I very rarely venture in to London.

Real Techniques Makeup Brush Dupes

This blog post, like it's subject matter, is somewhat of a dupe. I have seen a few blog posts on these products over the the last few weeks but I was so intrigued by them I just had to  buy some for myself and I thought I would share with you my own opinion on them....


It's no secret that I am a Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman fan. I own practically the whole collection and currently have my eye on the Limited Edition Duo Fiber Set. My most used brushes are the ones I use for foundation, both the Buffing Brush and the Expert Face Brush (which is a little bit denser than the Buffing Brush and allows slightly more coverage).

High-Street Concealers For Pale Skin - The Impossible Task

There are two things I just don't understand about makeup stands in the high-street...
1. That finding a mirror is ridiculously challenging
2. The unflattering and far from day-light-like lighting makes it, as the title of this post suggests, an impossible task to find the right shade.


Getting tired of having to mix two concealers together on a daily basis to make a better (but still not perfect) colour match for my skin, I thought it was time to take a trip to the high-street/drugstore to see if I could find a better match.

What's My FOTD Worth? Part Two - High-Street

Part one of the 'What's My FOTD Worth?' posts was a completely high-end product makeup look which you can read about here. The total for that look came to around £250 - shocking I know! The base makeup was great but I was left a little disappointed with the eye makeup. It's only fair to do a second post based entirely on high-street products to compare. So here it is....

Tarte Amazonian 12-Hour Clay Blush - Dollface

When one of my best friends said that she was off to America for 10 days I got just a little bit excited. I have never been to the US but as an avid reader of beauty blogs I know that they have an amazing plethora (great word!) of beauty products across the pond! Beauty products that we just can't get our hands on over here. Sadly I have never stepped foot in a Sephora and my friend had never heard of it, so a trip to this heavenly beauty store was my first piece of advice for her impending travels. 


When she said that she was happy to pick up some beauty products for me I could have kissed the girl! I spent the next week (...or two) doing some research on the American products that constantly evade my grasp. I already kind of knew what my first choice would be and so the item I asked for was the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush. I have read amazing things about these blushers. The only problem was choosing a colour. A couple of days before she left I messaged her with my request, it went a little something like this....

Collection Work The Colour Eyeshadow Pencils

I have had my eyes on the Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Sticks over the last few weeks and when I finally got around to picking them up in Superdrug I saw that Collection has a very similar product but much cheaper, the Work The Colour Eyeshadow Pencils. On the Collection website they are £3.19 but in Superdrug they had an introductory offer of just £2.50 each!


Although some of the shades are similar, Collection's colour choices are actually a little more wearable in my opinion. I swatched the range on my hand, and I kid you not, I could not get them off again. These eye pencils have some serious staying-power. I purchased Chocolate Brown which is a gorgeous bronzey brown shade, and Vintage Blush which is a pinky champagne colour which would make a perfect eye highlight colour.

What's My FOTD Worth? Part One - High-End

On a day to day basis I definitely wear more high-street (drugstore) makeup, occasionally with a high-end product thrown in such as eyeshadows or primers etc. I always wonder if high-end products are actually better and worth the money so I thought I would do a little 2-day experiment. On one day I would wear only high-end products and the on the other just high-street. Then I would compare overall appearance, longevity and cost.

Disappointing Products

I wanted to do a Disappointing Products post as I think they can be really useful if you are considering buying one of the items. Blog posts are mostly positive but it can be just as helpful to read a negative review. The following products were disappointing to me as they were not what I was personally expecting or they didn't work with my skin type so it doesn't mean that they will be disappointing for everyone else. These are the products I didn't like or wasn't entirely happy with....


Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions
I bought the Clinique Anti-Blemish Foam Wash and Clarifying Lotion about two months before my wedding as my skin was pretty bad and I was desperate to clear it up before the big day. This stuff isn't cheap at around £17 per bottle! I have already done a post on these products which you can read here,  but to cut a long story short, my skin reacted badly and just got worse. I had to stop using them a few weeks before the wedding in the hope that my skin would recover in time but it didn't really. As mentioned in my previous post it is possible that my skin was purging before it would get better but I didn't leave enough time before the wedding before I started a new skincare routine.

Makeup Storage Haul - Staples' Martha Stewart Range

I have recently been looking for some new makeup storage as I currently have it all divided in to separate makeup bags under my bed and in my bedside table. The current system works okay but it doesn't look great. 

Martha Stewart Home Office Storage Solutions Range From Staples

I have of course been tempted by the Muji storage but I fancied something a bit different. I may still get some when my makeup collection expands a bit though. So anyway, on a random stationary window shopping trip to Staples, I found the perfect solution!

June '13 Favourites

I love working out what products I have been using and enjoying the most over the last month. A couple of my June favourites have already had their own individual blog posts but there are a couple I haven't mentioned yet. So here are my favourites for June.....


Foundation - Nars Sheer Glow in Mont Blanc

I did my research on this foundation before I purchased it. I watched a lot of YouTube videos and read lots of blog reviews, because when a foundation costs £34 and you can't get a sample you do want to be pretty sure that you're going to like it. Based on the reviews it sounded like exactly what I was looking for, a high-end foundation (my first) which gives a nice luminous look but without being too dewy, with medium to full coverage and a good colour match of course. Although it is called Sheer Glow this foundation actually has surprisingly good coverage, I'd say it was medium but also quite buildable and yet still sheer enough to look natural and let my freckles peek through when applied thinly.

The Bright Red Lip

I am reasonably new to lipstick, I never really bothered with lip products in the past, not even lip gloss on a night out as I am just far too lazy and lip products can be quite high-maintenance. But now looking back at photos I can see that I sometimes looked a little bare and in some cases a little dead.


So I have started changing this habit and have been wearing subtle and nude lipsticks to work everyday and when I am out and about. I have really enjoyed doing so and feel it has made quite a difference to my overall makeup look so I thought it was time to be a bit more daring.

L'oreal Preference Wild Ombre Kit

Photo from loreal-paris.co.uk
Apart from a couple of slightly shorter hair styles and a brief experimentation with semi-permanent hair dye, my hair has always been the same. Since I was a child I have pretty much had long straight brown hair, and that's it.

I have always been put off dying my hair because of the amount of maintenance involved. The idea of having to re-do my roots every few weeks seemed like a nightmare. Especially since my hair grows at at break-neck speed.

I knew after the wedding I wanted a bit of a change and then I fell in love with the Ombre look. I know that it is really popular now and a lot of girls/women have it but I just think it looks so pretty! Especially at this time of year as it looks almost sun-kissed. The only problem was the cost. With a very recent wedding and honeymoon and the new aim of saving for a deposit for a house I couldn't afford to visit a salon. So instead I took a massive risk and bought the at-home L'oreal Preference Wild Ombre Kit No.2.

With an old towel around my shoulders, my hair clipped it to birds nest sections and a bleaching kit carefully balanced on my sink, I prayed that it would turn out alright. The kit itself is really easy to use, once the different components are all mixed together you simply squirt it on to the handy brush and apply it to the ends of your hair, avoiding the roots of course as that's the look we are going for.

Aussie - My Haircare Routine

For someone with ridiculously long hair (I mean seriously ridiculous - someone please make me go to the hairdressers!) I really don't do much to it. I can never be bothered to style it and luckily it is quite naturally straight, hopefully to the point where I can get away with just leaving it (because that is exactly what I do). 

 

I am however, concious of keeping it nicely conditioned. I have had the same hair routine for years and didn't realise how many products I actually use because it has just become habit. I really love the Aussie haircare range. It is reasonably priced, easy to get hold of, smells lovely and seems to do a good job.

Nicky Clarke Straighten and Curl Styling Tool

I can't remember when I first started straightening my hair, I must have been about 17. As someone with naturally fairly straight hair they have never been something I use on a very regular basis. I tend to use them more for curling than straightening these days. I have only ever owned one pair of straighteners, The Morphy Richards Mark Hill 22020 Straighteners and they have served me well.


A month or so before the wedding my sister and I were having a makeup and hair trial day when my straighteners decided to up and die on us. They kept flicking on and off, we tried taping the wire in the right place which worked as long as it didn't move. Have you ever tried curling your hair with hair straighteners when you can't move them? Not easy. It was a lost cause.

Foundation Primers - The Mission


I am currently on a mission to find the perfect primer, something which is turning out to be a little tricky, in large part due to my lack of mission funding. I haven't yet found the perfect primer but I will not rest until I do! (Too dramatic?!) In the meantime I thought I would share my findings so far.

I have currently tried four primers, two high-street (drugstore) and two high-end...

Dainty Doll Hippy Shake Blusher - Highlighter for Pale Skin

I have had a pretty good experience with Dainty Doll by Nicola Roberts makeup so far (see previous post here). The range is made for pale and fair skin tones so I know that I can pretty much count on their shades to complement my pale complexion.


As I am trying to get a little more in to powder blushers I thought I would order a couple of the Dainty Doll ones, especially since they were only £1.99 on the Fragrance Direct website (possibly because Dainty Doll is being/has been discontinued - or so I have read).

Happy Feet


Dry and scaley feet are not a good look for summer! In winter you are fortunate enough to not have to worry about ugly feet, you don't need to pamper those toes and keep up with regular pedicures, you can just wrap your feet up in some warm fluffy socks and nobody knows what is hiding inside.

In summer out come the flip flops and sandals and in my case the need for a major foot pamper session. It isn't a particularly glamourous process but it makes a world of difference.
