I’m a huge fan of the Too Faced Peaches and Cream products and am absolutely loving their new Too Faced Peach Kiss Moisture Long Wear Lipsticks.  I first purchased the shade ‘Breakfast Club’ and was so impressed that I ended up picking up two more shades – Got Peach? and Peach Beach.

I love the vibrancy, opacity, smoothness and comfortable feel of these lipsticks.  They smell delicious too, due to their refreshing peachy, vanilla-esque scent.

If you are on the look out for a new matte lipstick with incredible pigment, opacity and comfort, then I highly recommend the Too Faced Peach Kiss range!

The Cosmetics Company Store: Clinique and MAC Goodies

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last month, I visited the Livingston Designer Retail Outlet and picked up some goodies from ‘Cosmetic Company Store’.  If you live in the USA, you may have seen The Cosmetic Company Stores.  The CCS sells premium make-up at reduced prices from brands and now has outlets across the UK.

The CCS sells premium make-up at reduced prices from brands within the Estee Lauder group (including MAC, Clinique, Bobbi Brown, Smashbox and Tom Ford, to name but a few).  The products are genuine and there is nothing wrong with them.  They tend to be those from limited edition ranges, surplus stock from existing ranges and shades which are being phased out by the make-up brands.

Watt Bros Bargain: Triple Pack of NYX Plush Gel Lipsticks

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was in my local Watt Bros store recently and found a triple pack of the NYX Plus Gel Lipsticks.  The pack was incredibly good value, as it cost £6.99 for three lipsticks, with £6.50 being the usual RRP for one! I haven’t tried out the Plush Gel Lipsticks before, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to try them out!

I also found the NYX Sweet Cheeks Blush Palette in B&M (a UK discount store) for only £5.99! You can see my post on this product here.

New NYX Make-Up: Away We Glow Eyeshadow Palette and Lip Lingerie Glosses

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was browsing in Boots last week and noticed that there were some new NYX products being featured at the front display section at the NYX counter.  The new ‘Away We Glow’ collection includes two eyeshadow palettes and the palette called ‘Hooked On Glow’ really caught my eye due to the beautiful mix of peach, gold, brown tones.  The Lip Lingerie Glosses looked really interesting, as the same shades were available in three finishes: regular gloss, shimmer and glitter.  I ended up choosing Euro Trash in the Shimmer finish. 

You can see my full post, including photos and swatches on the Hooked on Glow Eyeshadow Palette here.  Let me know if you would also like to see a full post on the Lip Lingerie Gloss that I picked up.

Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Matte Long Wear Lipstick in ‘Bend & Snap’

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Recently, I was browsing the Too Faced counter in my local Debenhams and picked out the shade ‘Bend & Snap’ in their ‘Melted Matte Liquified Matte Long Wear Lipstick’ formula.  I loved the rich, deep raspberry hue of the shade and thought the formula felt so light, velvety and smooth on the lips.  I just had to get it!

Sneak Peek: Boots Make-up 3 for 2 Haul

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last week, I spent some time browsing the make-up counters in Boots as I really fancied checking out the new Spring time offerings.  Boots had a ‘3 for 2’ deal on and I ended up picking up various new make-up items.  I got some products from ranges I have tried before and other items which are new to me.

I am planning on writing more detailed posts on each of these items in the coming weeks once I have had a chance to try them out.  Look out for posts coming soon!

My Favourite Make-Up For Long and Busy Days

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In January, I was doing some intensive lecturing work and as part of that, I wanted my make-up to last well across the day.  I found some products within my existing make-up collection – and some new products – to be extremely long wearing.  Some of them also enabled me to skip parts of my usual make-up routine.  I thought it would be fun to put together a post on these products.  I might also try and do some more detailed posts on each product as well so let me know if that is something you would like to see!

Revlon Ulta HD Gel Lipcolors (760 Vineyard and 705 Dawn)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some time ago, I watched a You Tube video by Emilynoel83 where she recommended the Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolors.  I have tried out – and loved – some of the products she has recommended in the past and so I couldn’t resist picking up a couple of these lipsticks.  The Ultra HD Gel Lipcolors are a relatively new addition to the Revlon lipstick line-up.  I picked up two shades: 705 Dawn, a neutral rose with a slight sheen and 760 Vineyard, a medium mauve-plum.

MAC Metallic Lipsticks (Forbidden Romance, Disobedient and Coral Optix)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Metallic make-up is big this season and lips are no exception.  MAC recently released limited edition Metallic finish lipsticks as part of their lipstick range.  I chose three shades – Forbidden Romance, Disobedient and Coral Optix – as I found them flattering and totally different from anything else that I have in my make-up collection.

Urban Decay Naked Heat Lipsticks: Fuel and Heat

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Urban Decay recently launched their Naked Heat collection, including an eyeshadow palette, three Vice lipsticks and a 24/7 eyeliner.  I picked up two of the lipsticks (Heat and Fuel) and the eyeliner (Torch) as I loved these particular shades.  I don’t have anything else like Fuel in my make-up collection and Heat is just such a beautiful, burnished coppery-red shade.  Wonderful additions to my make-up collection!
