Review | Rimmel's Kate Moss lipstick.

I love Rimmel London lipsticks but I've never tried one of the ones from the Kate Moss collection, but considering as they are £2 off at Boots at the moment I thought I would pick one up. I love the creamy consistency of this, and it doesn't dry out my lips so much. It's highly pigmented so only one stroke of this is needed for a good effect.  
Apologies for my chipped nails!

Review | Sexy Mother Pucker

I was on the lookout for a new lipgloss to wear when I have my hair up - because I hate it when people get hair stuck in their lipgloss! So as I have been eager to try Soap&Glory's Sexy Mother Pucker for ages, because I have quite skinny lips so I would like something the plump them up.
I read the reviews on like and most people were like "this really hurts my lips" but it really doesn't! It goes all tingly and nice on my lips, I suppose it isn't everybody's cup of tea but it is defiantly mine! 

My everyday eye makeup.

Thought I might show you lovelies my everyday eye makeup and the products that I use.
Apologies for the eyebrows but i'm growing them out to be thicker.

So here is my bare but primed eye.


I put my Rimmel London Exaggerate waterproof eye liner in my tight line.


Maybelline gel eye liner

My new scandaleyes mascara (review will be up shortly)

And there we go.

Being ill when it's sunny sucks.

It's typical of me really, just my luck. In England it's absolutely roasting! I would have liked to have gone sunbathing, have a BBQ (even though I don't like BBQed food - don't judge) and whip out a paddling pool etc. But I can't because I have a cold :(
I've had exams all week so my dad decided to take me to Starbucks in town so whilst I was there I bought some entertainment material for my day alone being ill :( I got by possibly favorite film of all time Austin Powers and one that I haven't seen before, Marmaduke, I it only me who adores films with talking animals in them? Yes? Okay then.

Budget sunnys!

So your probably familiar with Primark's cheapo sunglasses what you can just buy for a couple of quid and throw in your bag?
But if you still prefer sunglasses on a tight budget but want them to look good (high quality good not £3 Primark good) then I highly recommend getting your asses onto Ebay; I discovered some good finds whilst browsing so I thought i'd do a post.

I've found a couple of pairs that are plain-ish in design but would be much more of a higher quality then most high street cheap brands! These are some tortoise shell style ones (below) and, these are a pair with kind of the same design but plain black.

As you're all probably well aware round style vintage sunglasses are going to be big this 'summer' so check out these original 1980's, 1930/40's style bad boys! at a price of £9 you can't go wrong! check them out here.
Plus if you like the Ozzy Osbourne style of sunnys with coloured lenses check out these. They come in yellow, brown, red and green!

Still loving the vintage look but want to be a bit more original that round sunnies? Try out some cat eyes! These are quoted as "high quality retro sunglasses" and they really do look the part, i'll be getting some of these in for a summer BBQ. I've also found another pair here if you fancy a comparison.

I'm in love with the swirly arms of these sunglasses, with being big, round and OTT they will most defiantly be a  pair of head turners!  

I hope people have found this post helpful and has help you get ready for summer days out!

NOTD: Universal

Hello my lovelys!
So earlier on in the year people were going crazy over galaxy everything! (I however, still am) so I thought I would create the galaxy nail! It's a bit messy and my camera got so confused over all the glitter that it decided not to focus today OH WELL. So these are the products that I used
- Ciate Burlesque
- Barry M Cobalt Blue
- Barry M Bright Pink
- (My best used glitter polish by) Miss Sporty 
- Natural collection clear top coat

So yeah this is it, I apologize for the picture but I wanted to post today and I wasn't sure what to post so here you go! Enjoy.

My favorite wipes for removing make up.

Hello my lovelys!
I just thought i'd do a quick post to tell you what make up wipes I use to remove some of my make up (If I can't to cleanse and faff around at night). A majority of people I know buy just 20 packs of any bog standard make up wipe which I have noticed cost an absolute bomb of up to £5 for what you get! 
So I just thought I'd let you guys know what wipes I use. I actually use baby wipes for three reasons:
1) I have very sensitive skin and baby wiped are developed to be kind to skin.
2) They cost £2.48 at Tesco, which comes to 3p a wipe!
3) You get 80 wipes in a pack which Is basically buying 4 packs of make up wipes (which would come to around £40)
These are basically my favorite cheap alternative, if i'm using waterproof mascara etc I will alternate to an actual brand of make up wipe.

So here we are! the Simple Baby Wipes!

Oh and I just thought  I'd let you know that this is my 5th pack and they have never broke me out!
