Autumn is my favorite season without a doubt, I love the fashion, the layering, the weather, the long chilly walks on crunchy leaves, the colours, cups of tea, apple crumble, halloween, bonfire night, and of course my birthday! Not forgetting the lush candles and new costa releases (typical blogger comment...)

But most of all, I love the makeup, here's a selection of the eyeshadows I can see myself wearing during the next few months, handily picked from only 2 palettes, Urban Decay Naked Palette, and Sleek's Vintage Romance 141, which sadly I have lost the clear protective film that comes with the palette telling me all their names, but you'll get the gist of it! I really highly recommend Sleek Eyeshadows, their shadows have such a gorgeous silk, creamy feel to them, have great pigmentation and very affordable!

From left to right:
Urban Decay: Sidecar
Sleek Vintage Romance (Deep Plum with Shimmer)
Urban Decay: Toasted (My all time love)
Urban Decay: Hustle
Urban Decay: Smog
Sleek Vintage Romance (Matte Warm Brown)
Sleek Vintage Romance (Shimmer Rose Pink)
Sleek Vintage Romance (Shimmer Deep Pink)
Sleek Vintage Romance (Shimmer Rose Gold)

The smell of the mask is really inviting as it smells super fresh and minty, pretty much exactly like aero mint chocolate bubbles, which for me is fab. I've used the mask on two occasions now, at first it made my face feel really, really cold, I wouldn't really recommend this as a face mask to 'relax' to; it wasn't a stinging or unpleasant feeling on my skin, it was just very odd and cold, even colder when I washed it off with water...but maybe that's just something I'm getting! The mask is a nice exfoliant too.

Once I'd washed the mask off, oh hot skin has never felt so soft, clean and literally (excuse the pun) minty fresh! I really have noticed a difference in my skin, it's been clearing up blemish wise, and its overall appearance has improved, my pores appear smaller as all the crap has been cleaned out of them, and my skin looks and feels brighter.

If you're looking for a seriously good face mask for clearing up problematic skin, then give this a go. Being from Lush all the ingredients are super good for your skin, if you don't mind a really minty smell and a rather cold sensation on your face, I seriously think you'll love this magic mask
Pros: Actually improves skin/blemishes within first use
Gives a really fresh, clean feeling
Leaves skin feelings as soft as a babies bottom

Cons: If you're looking for a mask that makes you feel like you've stuck your face in a freezer, this ones for you!

Weekly Wishlist #1

Thursday, September 11, 2014 0 Comments

Primark is so with it at the moment, last time I popped in to pick up some hair bobbles I spotted so many things I think I'm going to have to purchase, those 2 gorgeous pairs of shoes being some of them! Does anyone else feel its okay as it's Primark, and Primark is guilt free right? Holographic shoes for £12...YES PLEASE.

I've seen a new foundation by Rimmel circling between bloggers and youtubers recently, I'm a big fan of Rimmel makeup, I don't really think I've had a bad experience with a product from them, so this foundation has definably sparked some interest with me, I'm all for long wearing foundations so I'm all for trying this to see if it's a hit or a miss! And what would a weekly wishlist be without a Mac lipstick? The name of 'Flat out Fabulous' drew me in alone, let alone that gorgeous purple-pink...we'll see if it makes it into my makeup bag in the next few weeks!

Beaded Top: H&M
Imitation Leather Shorts: H&M
Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation: House of Fraser
Flat out Fabulous: MAC
Holographic Shoe: Primark
Lasting Finish Foundation Serum: Rimmel London 
Cream Laser Cut Shoe: Primark
TRESemme Vibrant Naturals Nourishing and Replenishing Conditioner (Sulphate Free)

My answer to dry, damaged, thirsty, unloved and grumpy hair.

I've never been too bothered about using sulphate free hair care products, I cant say I even realised this was a sulphate free conditioner when I bought it. I've been using this now for around 3/4 washes and I'm in love. It smells divine and the forumala is so much thicker and creamier than most conditioners that I've tried in the past, and most importantly it actually works! 

My hair isn't on its last legs or anything that extreme, but I do colour and heat style my hair, so of course, its in need of some TLC and drier than it should be. This conditioner is seriously the bees knees. My hair not only looks healthy, mouistuersed and replenished, it is. It feels brilliant after 2/3+ days, where as in my experience, most conditioners leave my hair silky smooth and frizz free for the first day, but I'll wake up the next morning and it feels like it needs a treatment again. Obviously there is no miracle cure, or any actual cure for split ends, the only thing you can do it have them cut off, BUT once you've got rid of as many split ends as you can, seriously, seriously give this stuff a go. My hair is in better condition since using this than it has been in a long time. This, paired with my beloved moroccan oil treatment is my hairs new best friend
