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...
