Laura Geller Blush n Brighten in Hibiscus Swatches and Review

Yet another lovely blush from Laura Geller, Hibiscus is a light pink with subtle golden sheen and very fine shimmer. I have to say though, Laura Geller has been churning out new blushes like there's no tomorrow. And of course not just blushes, but baked eyeshadows and lip products as well. I can barely keep up. But let's just take a moment to look at this beauty...

As always, I picked this one up from eBay together with the new Dream Cream Lip Palette in Hibiscus and Baked Eye Dreams Palette in Sandbar. Basically they are another variation on the Escape To The Tropics collection (reviewed here) with the same sparkly packaging. This is the third installment, the second one was reviewed here minues the blush because I'd already owned that one (Como).You can check out my collection of Laura Geller blushes here if you haven't seen it yet by the way!

So basically this is pretty much the same as other Laura Geller blushes, a pretty baked swirly design, in this case a mixture of shimmery pink, cream and brown which result in a pretty warm slightly shimmery pink shade. The texture is very smooth and fine, well pigmented, and the blush stays on well for a good few hours. As with all Blush n Brighten compacts you get 9 gramms. This particular one isn't available separately, but the 7 piece collection it came in was priced at $59.50 on QVC. I bought this for $20.50 on eBay as this set has not been available in the UK. I think it's a lovely addition to my Laura Geller blush collection, butnow I like Ms Geller needs to slow down a bit and give me a chance to use and enjoy these lovely blushes. Seriously, if I only owned Laura Geller blushes, I still couldn't use them up, there are just so many!

Simple Kind To Eyes Eye Make Up Corrector Pen

Having worn make up for the last 20 years or so, I am now pretty good at applying it. However, I still make mistakes, especially when applying mascara, so on a recent shopping trip I picked up Simple Kind To Eyes Eye Make Up Corrector Pen. Up until then I either used a cotton wool bud to tidy up my mistake, or my Avon make up remover pencil (not sure if those are still available at all). But at £4.99 I thought I didn't have much to lose should the Simple pen not work out. Fortunately it did. I like it that it has such a fine tip, it's very easy to get under my lower lashes (which is where the mistakes often are), and also that it really is gentle to my skin with no alcohol or perfume.

I'm not entirely sure that it's that much better than my trusty cotton wool buds (dipped into make up remover if necessary), but I guess it would come in very handy when travelling or needing to tidy up smudged make up on the go. There is one thing I'm not too keen on though and it's this:

This is what the tip looks like after using it to remove some mascara. It is recommended that you clean the tip with make up remover wipes, but I do feel that having to do that suddenly makes it less of a portable option. Besides, might as well use a wipe to clean off the smudged mascara then, no?

But it is convenient and all in all works well, so I will forgive it for that small issue. Do you own this or have you tried it? Let me know in the comments!

NOTD: Chanel Peridot - My First Ever Chanel Nail Polish!

I was very excited when I first saw pictures of Chanel's fall collection, especially when I saw pictures of Peridot nail polish. It instantly reminded me of Scarab beetles, it being green-gold with blue sheen. Never seen a nail polish that colour before. So I bought it last Monday and I've finally got around to wearing it. 

I love it, it's so beautiful. In the bottle it's green-gold with blue around the edges of the bottle, and I was a bit afraid this wouldn't transfer as well onto my nails, but it did. Depending on how the light hits them, my nails are gold, green, even blueish green, or all of the above. Not easy to catch in photos, but I have sort of managed, be sure to check out the pictures after the jump! (Sorry about the picture quality, I used my phone to take the photos as I was pressed for time.)

Formulawise it's lovely. Goes on like a dream, not too thick, not too runny, dries quickly and it's soooo shiny! It took only 2 coats to be completely opaque. Unfortunately it did chip me within the first 24 hours, but I always like to point out that almost everything chips on me within a day, that's because I have crappy soft, bendy nails. It costs £17.50 for a 13 ml bottle, so it's not cheap, but it is Chanel after all. Is it worth it? It is a very unique shade, so I would say it is, but if you're on a tight budget, you might just want to wait and see if cheaper brands come up with a dupe as they often do. Of course there's also the small matter of this shade being sold out already, as unfortunately it's a limited edition shade.

Don't forget to let me know in the comments if you bought this and whether you like it or not.

Biore Facial Deep Cleansing and Ultra Deep Cleansing Pore Strips

Confession time: I have a lot of blackheads. Mainly on my nose, but also my chin and and a good few on my forehead too. However, I'm a whimp, so I don't have my pores cleaned out by professionals. I don't know why, I just never go to a beautician, never been other than before my wedding, never want to go again. I didn't have big blemishes as a teenager, so I didn't need to go and so I never got used to the idea I guess. So instead I do it by myself and the help of Biore Facial Deep Cleansing and Ultra Deep Cleansing Pore Strips.

The one on the left is for your forehead and chin, the one on the right is for your nose. Otherwise they're pretty much the same things, small paper strips coated in sticky stuff that you put on your wet face, wait for them to dry, then peel off and voila, dirt from your pores is pulled out with them.

I have to confess to another thing: I love studying these little strips once they're off to see just how much dirt they pulled out of my pores. I know, it's disgusting, but somehow it makes me feel good about myself. I'm doing something for my skin, after all the abuse it's subjected to with me wearing make up 7 days a week for about 14-15 hours a day. Now don't worry, I will not be showing you the used strips, wouldn't want to give you nightmares or make you sick.

Guess Who's Got a New Kitten? Introducing Fluff!

You may remember my post about our kitten, Paws, who came to us in January (if not, you can check it out here). Ever since his arrival, my eldest daughter had been asking for a kitten (Paws belongs to my younger daughter) and having been away already this summer, we've finally got her kitten: Fluff. He is just coming up 8 weeks, so still very little, but is a very confident, playful and cuddly little thing. Paws hasn't quite got used to him yet, but we are making progress.

See more pictures of Fluff (and a new picture of Paws) after the jump!

Too Faced Full Bloom Ultra Flush Powder Blush in Sweet Pink

This is the blush I couldn't show you properly in my London haul video because the good people of Boots decided to sellotape it shut, but I have now managed to get into it, so here's the review I promised. I believe this is an all new type of blush from Too Faced, although I admit that I hadn't owned any TF blushes before, so don't quote me on it. There were both powder and cream blushes available at the TF stand in th Boots on Oxford Street, and if I remember correctly there were 3 shades each. I picked up Sweet Pink which is basically a light pink colour with subtle shimmer.

Firstly the packaging is very pretty, as you would expect from Too Faced, with roses and butterflies on the outer box. The box itself has a flip up lid that shows you how to use the blush (erm, like apply and blend, you know), and you can also see the black compact through a peephole. The compact itself is shiny black with Too Faced written across it in pink. Inside the lid you get a full sized mirror, and there's also the pretty pink blush. You only get 4 g of product, so it's rather tiny, similar size to Urban Decay's Afteglow blushes (smaller than Mac blushes that are 6 g). This blush costs £18.50 which is a lot of money for something this tiny, especially as Too Faced isn't exactly a luxury brand.

Anyway, the blush is lovely, it's nicely pigmented (but not too overly, so you can build it up), smooth and the shimmer in it is very subtle, so it doesn't turn you into a glitter bomb. It's nothing special and the shade is most probably dupeable, but it is a nice blush in any case. Do you own it? Would you buy it?

Swatching My Stash: Guerlain Rouge Automatique Lipstick Swatches

As you know, I love me a bit of Guerlain. (Well, actually, I'll have a lot of it please!) So it probably won't come as a huge surprise that I've well and truly stocked up on Guerlain's latest offering - the Rouge Automatique lipsticks. I now have 11 of them, still wanting to get 2 or 3 more, but they are very pricey, so now I've also resorted to buying testers of them on eBay. I don't mind testers, got a lot of them, if I can save £15 off the price of these beauties, well then be it.

I have already reviewed Guerlain Rouge Automatique lipsticks (click here for my review), so I won't repeat myself, this post is mainly to show you what they look like swatched. However, if you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments! Also, let me know which one is your favourite!

FOTD: Blue and Purple Look With Urban Decay

I'm having quite an Urban Decay week aren't I? This is the look I did with Rimmel Moisture Renew lipstick in Sweetheart Tulips that I reviewed a few days ago, so I thought I'd do the breakdown for it as I really liked how the eyes turned out. I think Mary Jane is a beautiful shade and also a really great eyeshadow, one of the best ones from Urban Decay. I also love Fishnet, it's a Deluxe eyeshadow and it is beautiful. Let me know what you think in the comments.

To create this look I used the following:

Urban Decay Primer Potion (original)
Urban Decay Mary Jane eyeshadow all over lid and on lower lashline
Urban Decay Psychedellic Sister eyeshadow (UD♥NYC palette) in crease
Urban Decay Fishnet eyeshadow (Deluxe palette) above crease and above inner corner
Urban Decay Hot Pants eyeshadow above crease
Urban Decay Virgin eyeshadow (Naked palette) on browbone to highlight
Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner pencil in Binge on lower lashline
Givenchy Phenomen'eyes mascara in Black
Mac Brow Set in Show Off

Guerlain Lingerie de Peau foundation in 03 Beige Naturel
Mac Magically Cool Liquid Powder in Truth & Light

NOTD: Mavala 213 Pure Diamond - A Shimmering Rainbow On Your Fingertips

I missed out on GOSH holographic nail polish which now retails for about £20 on eBay, and was looking out for possible dupes when I realised that this little beauty was hiding in my drawer. I purchased it as part of a set that included 7 Mavala glitter nail polishes sometime around Christmas for something like £8 and promptly forgot about it. I decided to try it out and now I'm in love. It's a clear nail polish with multicolour very fine glitter in it, that look mostly silver in natural light, but once bright light hits my nails, it shimmers in every colour of the rainbow. I couldn't stop looking at my hands for the first day or so. Despite it being clear, it is nearly opaque in 3 coats and it feels very smooth as the glitter is very fine. Removing it was a bit more difficult than normal nail polish, but wasn't the worst of the glitter nail polishes I own.

All in all, an absolutely lovely glitter nail polish that looks like those holographic wrapping papers. Love it! Available from BeautyBay for £2.99 (5 ml).

I took lots of pictures, but it was very hard to capture its true beauty, so make sure you scroll right down to the bottom to see a short video I recorded that might give you a better idea on how it looks in real life.

Boots 17 Blushes in China Pink and First Kiss Review and Swatches

While on holiday a little while ago I took a couple of 17 blushes with me and decided to review them as they are something worth talking about. Cheap (£3.49 from Boots), nicely pigmented and good quality, what's not to like really?

I only own China Pink (left) and First Kiss (right), but I believe there are 5 shades in the line - according to the Boots website anyway. China Pink is a cool pink shade, whereas First Kiss has a golden sheen to it and is generally a lot warmer. They are not that different in the swatches, but China Pink is definitely the cooler one. I love First Kiss for its golden sheen, it's not glittery/shimmery, just has a bit of sheen. I think it's a brilliant everyday blush colour.

Annoyingly the packaging doesn't say how big they are, but they're about the size of a Mac blush, so at £3.49 they're definitely a bargain. Do you own any 17 blushes? If so, which one is your favourite shade?

Pink Sparkly Look Featuring Urban Decay 15 Year Anniversary Eyeshadow Collection

One more look I created using my new Urban Decay palette. I really wanted to do something with Junkshow, the gorgeous hot pink shade and voila! I also decided to try out my new Mac glitter that I picked up from the Pro Store a few weeks ago (note: Mac glitters are NOT eyesafe, so it is not recommended that you follow my example, if you do so, it's completely at your risk). I also added Make Up Forever Aqua Liner in #14 Diamond Multicolour Black because it has some pink glitter in it. I really like this look, it's bright and cheerful, but not too in your face. What do you think?

To create this look I used the following:

Urban Decay Primer Potion (original)
Urban Decay Tainted eyeshadow (15 palette) all over lid and above crease
Urban Decay Junkshow eyeshadow (15 palette) in crease
Mac Pink Opal pigment in inner corner and on browbone to highlight
Mac Reflects Transparent Pink glitter all over lid
Make Up Forever Aqua Liner in #14 Diamond Multicolour Black
Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner pencil in Zero on lower lashline and waterline
Givenchy Phenomen'eyes mascara in Black
Mac Brow Set in Show Off

Guerlain Lingerie de Peau foundation in 03 Beige Naturel
Mac Magically Cool Liquid Powder in Truth & Light
Urban Decay Quickie blush
Mac Lightscapade Mineralize Skinfinish

Urban Decay Book of Shadows Vol. 4

Another Urban Decay palette to get excited about, or not as it may be for some. Not out yet, but this newest Book of Shadows is Urban Decay's holiday offering for this year. Containing 16 eyeshadows (10 of which are new and exclusive to this set) and a whole load of other stuff (including five QR codes that you can plug into your iPhone to access five online video tutorials featuring products from the palette and a speaker to use with your phone) and featuring pop up butterflies, this is the biggest, bulkiest Book of Shadows so far.

I don't really know how I feel about this yet. The palette appears to be extremely bulky with all the extra technical stuff (plus there's also a liquid eyeliner, a mascara and a small primer potion included) and the shades seem a bit blah to me. There are a few interesting ones, but there's also a lot of neutrals and I've just got a load of those with my 15 Year Anniversary Eyeshadow Palette (plus I have the Naked Palette too).

I haven't got this yet (I believe it won't be released for a while yet), but Christine at Temptalia has already reviewed it and I gather some of the eyeshadows lack the usual Urban Decay quality. Also, I haven't got an iPhone, so all the technical extras are completely lost on me. It is still good value for money and since I have all the other Books of Shadows, I might as well get it (I have heard this will be the last one). Will you be purchasing it? If not, why not? Let me know in the comments.

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick #215 Sweetheart Tulips Swatches and Review

Every so often I pull a lipstick out of my ever growing stash that I'd forgotten about and realise how much I actually like it. Rimmel Moisture Renew lipstick in Sweetheart Tulips is one of them. A bright cheerful pink shade, with a nice texture and good price tag is something every girl needs.

I can't really say whether the lipstick itself is moisturising, but it's certainly not drying. I don't normally have dry lips (thank you Vaseline), and they certainly don't feel drier after using this lipstick. It has a nice creamy texture and lasts quite well one me, probably 2 to 3 hours, and it fades pretty evenly. Rimmel lipsticks have a slight plasticy sweet smell, but it's not as strong as some (Maybelline, I'm looking at you!) and disappears quickly anyway. Sweetheart Tulips is a pretty bright, but not too in your face pink shade. Available from Boots for £6.29 (there's currently a free gift offer if you spend over £6 on Rimmel).

What do you think? Would you wear this lipstick? Do you own it already? Let me know in the comments!

Blue-Teal Look Featuring Urban Decay 15 Year Anniversary Eyeshadow Collection

Here's another look I created using my new Urban Decay palette, this time it's a bright one. I love blues and teals, so I thought I'd use those. I also added Kiddie Pool eyeshadow (mine is in the Sustainable palette, but it is a permanent single eyeshadow) and Vanilla to highlight. Let me know how you like it!

To create this look I used the following:

Urban Decay Primer Potion (original)
Urban Decay Kiddie Pool eyeshadow (Sustainable palette) inner half of lid
Urban Decay Deep End eyeshadow (15 palette) in outer half of lid, above crease and on lower lashline
Urban Decay Evidence eyeshadow (15 palette) in crease
Urban Decay Vanilla eyeshadow (15 palette) in inner corner and on browbone to highlight
Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner pencil in Flipside on lower lashline and waterline
Givenchy Phenomen'eyes mascara in Black
Mac Brow Set in Show Off

Guerlain Lingerie de Peau foundation in 03 Beige Naturel
Mac Magically Cool Liquid Powder in Truth & Light

NOTD: Rainbow Nails - Just For Fun

I decided to do something different last night and painted my nails in rainbow colours. I was going to add black crackle polish on top, but the colours were so pretty I decided to leave them as they are. What do you think?

With flash

I used the following nail polishes:
Thumb - Zoya Reva
Index finger - Zoya Tanzy
Middle finger - Mavala Gold Diamond
Ring finger - Zoya Apple
Little finger - China Glaze Blue Iguana

It would've been better if I had used a gold/yellow polish that didn't have glitter, but I don't own one, except a creme one, so I went for the Mavala one. Also Blue Iguana has a slightly different finish too, no flecks of shimmer in it like the Zoya polishes. Still, it's only for fun.

Quick and Easy Natural Look Using Urban Decay 15 Year Anniversary Palette

I decided to do a quick and easy natural look with my new Urban Decay 15 Year Anniversary Collection and this is what I ended up with. The shadows were all really lovely to use, I only one complaint: Midnight Rodeo has awful glitter fallout, so I ended up with glitter all down my face (there was none on my eyelids weirdly). It's a pretty shade though, but I wish Urban Decay stopped making these glitterbomb shadows (Midnight Cowboy and MCRA, I'm looking at you too!). I loved Vanilla as a highlighter and Flow as a lid colour, they are both very pretty shades.

To create this look I used the following:

Urban Decay Primer Potion in Greed (gold)
Urban Decay Flow eyeshadow (15 palette) all over lid
Urban Decay Midnight Rodeo eyeshadow (15 palette) in crease
Urban Decay Midnight 15 eyeshadow (15 palette) above crease
Urban Decay Vanilla eyeshadow (15 palette) in inner corner and on browbone to highlight
Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner pencil in Bourbon on lower lashline and waterline
Givenchy Phenomen'eyes mascara in Black
Mac Brow Set in Show Off

Guerlain Lingerie de Peau foundation in 03 Beige Naturel
Mac Magically Cool Liquid Powder in Truth & Light
Urban Decay Score blush

Bourjois Sweet Kiss lipstick in #47 Rose Pare

Let me know what you think! I will also show you a blue and teal look and a pink sparkly look I've created with this palette, so check back soon!

Urban Decay 15 Year Anniversary Eyeshadow Palette Review And Swatches

Aah, isn't it beautiful? I'm very happy to be the proud owner of Urban Decay's latest eyeshadow palette, the 15 Year Anniversary Eyeshadow Collection. It's a limited edition and seems to be always sold out in the US, but luckily it is readily available in the UK from Debenhams and House of Fraser for £39.

So where do I start? You get 15 eyeshadows that are all new and exclusive to the set. I'm sure many of them dupeable though, either with other Urban Decay eyeshadows, or different brands. However, the palette has a very good mix of neutrals and brights and at £39 it's a steal. You get 15 full size eyeshadows for under £3 each! Urban Decay single eyeshadows retail at £13 each. Enough said. Quality wise the eyeshadows are excellent. There are a couple of exceptions, namely Midnight Rodeo which is a glitterbomb (pretty much the same as Midnight Cowboy), I used it today and ended up with glitter all over my face, and Tainted which is just a bit unremarkable. Also Blackout is a matte shade and therefore not as butttery as the others, but it's stil very pigmented and not at all chalky. My favourites are Flow, Omen, Deep End and Deeper, the latter has these amazing gold/red/bronzy flecks!

The palette is a nice size, much smaller than the latest Book of Shadows, it has a mirror inside the lid, but comes with nothing extra (meaning eyeliner, primer potion, brush, etc.). Except for the purple velvet tray that I could've done without to be honest, especially if it had saved me a few quid. It's nice, just not necessary, plus it's a pain to try to get the palette in and out of it. Without it, the set is much less bulky too. The lid of the palette does come off very easily, so it's not the best for travelling, but I keep mine in it's plastic sleeve/box anyway, so it's safe enough.

All in all, another good palette from Urban Decay. It's a great bargain and the quality of the shadows is excellent. Well worth checking out if you're a fan of Urban Decay and/or in need of a palette with a good mix of colours.

Chanel Ombres Tissees Iridescent Effects Eyes in Beiges

On a recent trip to London I popped into Selfridges in a hope to pick up some of the very limited Chanel Byzance collection (I got the eyeshadow quad, the red blush and Byzantine lipstick by the way) I found this little beauty that I of course had to have. An absolutely gorgeous shimmery powder with overspray that looks like lots of Swarovski crystals, intended as eyeshadows but of course can be used as face highlighter too.

Came out as part of the also very limited edition Les Aquarelles collection that also includes two blushes, a Rouge Coco Shine lipstick, a single eyeshadow and a waterproof eyeliner (details and pictures over at Musings of a Muse). I didn't actually see any of the other items from the collection, although I don't think I would've bought anything else anyway, but I just had to have this gorgeous shimmering work of art. My pictures don't do it any justice, because it is 100 times more gorgeous in real life, but you get the idea anyway. Now sadly for you, I will not swatch this just yet (it is too beautiful to mess up), but if you head over to Cafe Make Up, you can see loads more of beautiful pictures and also swatches (Amy is clearly braver than me when it comes to swatching gorgeous products like this, lol).

I can't see this on the Selfridges website, so I'm guessing this is another store exclusive. It costs £44 and you get 13 gramms of product. Of course it's way too expensive, but then that's Chanel for you!

Swatching My Stash: My Boots 17 Eyeshadow Trios

As promised, here are my Boots 17 eyeshadow trio swatches. I own 5 of them, so might not be available for sale anymore as they may be a tad old. Before I got into high end make up (about 3 years ago), I used to buy quite a lot of high street make up and 17 was definitely one of them. I have since got rid of quite a lot of my old make up, but I couldn't toss these lovelies as they are really good quality eyeshadows.

I own Costa Rica, Galactic, Neptune, Purple Heart, Pretty In Pink. Costa Rica is a very summery trio with teal, blue and bronze, I believe it was a limited edition trio last year (or the year before). Galactic and Neptune Starry Eyes trios are new, they are currently available in Boots for £4.99 each, but there's often a 3 for 2 offer on or something similar. I believe there's 4 colours available. Bizarrely the older regular trios cost £5.49 (50p more), I have Pretty In Pink and Purple Heart of those, although my Purple Heart has a slightly different (older) design. I don't know if the eyeshadows are the same quality, probably are, but worth checking them out for yourselves. These trios appear to be available in 12 shades on the Boots website, I don't think I've ever seen that many in stores though.

Quality wise I love the new Starry Eyes trios the best as they really are excellent, buttery, soft, pigmented eyeshadows. I like all the others too, but some of them are less pigmented or a bit harder (might be their age though). Anyway, here are the swatches for you, see for yourselves! Do you own any of these or other 17 trio eyeshadows?

Swatching My Stash: My Boots 17 Single Eyeshadows

I was trying to decide what make up products to take with me on holiday and since I don't like taking my expensive, limited edition, high end stuff, I decided to rummage through my high street (drugstore) stash. This made me remember how much I love Boots' 17 eyeshadows, so I quickly got them all out and swatched them for you. I absolutely love 17 eyeshadows as their texture is consistently great, smooth and buttery, but they really don't cost much at all. (£3.89 each in Boots right now, but there's always a 3 for 2 offer around worth waiting for.)

I own 9 of the eyeshadows, although some of them aren't of the current design, so might not be available anymore, but I'll still show them to you. Most of the eyeshadows in the range are shimmery with high sheen, there are some glittery and some matte ones, although for me the best ones are the shimmery ones, their textures are the best.

Without further ado here are the pictures of my 17 eyeshadow singles. I will also swatch my trios later (I have 5 of those).

Finished! The July edition

Here are the products I finished in the month of July. Not to shabby, although sadly only 3 make up items.Still, my collection of cleansers/scrubs need using up as well. Let's have a look at what I managed to finish last month, shall we?

First up is Maybelline Dream Satin liquid foundation in 020 Cameo. I have reviewed it already, you can read my review here. I don't love it, it doesn't really work for me, it's greasy and leaves my face quite shiny too, so won't be repurchasing this. I still have another half a bottle though, so you can expect that to appear in another Finished! post soon. Available from Boots, Superdrug, etc. £8.19 at Boots with a 3 for 2 offer currently on.

Keep reading to find out what other products I have finished this month!
