LUSH HAUL!!♥

Hi Beauties ☼

I’m so excited for todays post, it’s a little late but work got in the way! Anyway, last week I finally got to go to Lush, I don’t have a Lush store in the town I live in so whenever I go somewhere with one I stock up 🙂 It’s safe to say I splurged & stocked up, but hey, its Lush! I couldn’t resist!!

So lets get into what I bought…

1. The Comforter Bubble BarPrice: £4.75 each, this may seem pricey but trust me, you can get at least 4-6 baths out of this one bar!! This luscious blackcurrant fragranced bubble bar makes for a lovely pamper night bubble bath.

wpid-20150531_230454.jpg2. Brightside Bubble BarPrice £4.75 each, like the Comforter it can make for many bubble baths. This however, smells like summer, if summer had a scent it’d be this. “Sicilian mandarin, bergamot and tangerine essential oils to help you look on the bright side of life!”

3. Yuzu & Cocoa BubbleroonPrice £3.65 each – “With moisturising coconut oil and shea butter, Yuzu and Cocoa has a mood-brightening colour and scent thanks to a blend of citrus oils, with a chocolatey undertone.”

4. Mmmelting Marshmalow Moment Bath Melt Price £3.95 each – WOW! Imagine the sweet smell of dolly mixture & you’ve got this scent to a T. I’m in love with it, it’s meant to be moisturising & nourising to dry/irritated skin. I cannot wait to try it!

5. Dragons Egg Bath BombPrice £3.35 each – “Its scent is reminiscent of lemon sherbet, with a hint of jasmine.” It fizzes & crakles in your bath, revealing a colourful inside! – so excited to try it! 🙂

6. Butterball Bath Bomb Price £2.65 each – “Once the cocoa butter pieces have melted, your skin will be coated by a light buttery film that smells good enough to eat.” – review to come on this product!! 🙂

7. Fizzbanger Bath Bomb Price – £3.35 each – “It changes colour as it fizzes, crackling with popping candy as it goes and releasing first a citrussy apple and then a cinnamon, apple pie like scent with a hint of ylang ylang.”

Makeup of the day

Makeup Of The Day!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

YES! Finally a makeup of the day, oh how I’ve missed these! *like this post to see more!!* 🙂

So, yesterday I decided to have a play around with my eyeshadows, well my beloved Sleek Au Naturel palette. The look I came up with was quite simple looking, but I LOVE it. I created matte eyes, with a flawless base & nude lips!

To be honest, I’ve been obsessed with matte eyeshadow over shimmers recently. It looks more subtle & wearable for everyday wear, especially as I wasn’t going anywhere fancy, just running some errands.

Right, enough babbling, lets get on with the look…

wpid-20150311_105957.jpg

I didn’t picture each step, it is that simple, there’s a few colours used but only with a light hand, as I wanted a subtle matte contour to the eye!

Firstly, I put a wash of the colour ‘nougat’ all over the lids, right upto the brow bone, this just gives an even colour to work on top; making blending so much easier!

I then went in with ‘toast’ in my crease as the transition shade. This just gives darker colours a transition, making blending (yes, you’ll see the key to this look is blending!!) effortless. I use windscreen wiper motions to blend the colour into my crease, I blend this colour to the point where my eyebrows start (shown below).

To deepen up the crease a bit I went in with a mix of ‘nubuck’ and ‘cappuccino’ over the top of ‘toast, I only used a small amount at a time & built up the intensity until I got to the desired effect. With this look (& most other eyeshadow work) blending is the absolute key, also building up colour is essential, as the end look will look far more seamless than if you try blend a ton of colour from the get go!

Once you’ve reached your desired intensity I like to go in with an even darker shade; just to give that extra definition to the very outer corners. To do this I used ‘regal’, this is my favourite shade in this palette, it makes my green eyes POP! I place a small amount right in the outer corner & blend it into the crease, but not all the way into the inner corners like the other colours, only about half way!

To finish the look off I but ‘regal’ along the lower lashline & added a generous amount of my Kiko mascara (comment if you’d like to see a review!!) to my top & bottom lashes. This just defines the lashes & balances the bottom of the eyes with the top half.

Sleek Oh So Special Palette & Swatches!♥

Hi beauties. ☼ After purchasing my first Sleek Makeup eyeshadow palette I decided to create a swatches post so you can see what shades this palette includes. I also wanted to share with you my love of Sleek & I highly recommend you try the brand if you haven’t (especially their eyeshadows). However, there is one product I cannot get along with (more about this in an upcoming post!!) Anyway, here we go…

wpid-20141002_173632.jpg

Firstly, here’s the packaging for the palette, I love the idea of the loose eyeshadow design on the front, it looks fab! There are also tips on how to apply the eyeshadow on the back of the box. I think this is great, especially if you’re a beginner with makeup 🙂

The packaging for the actual palette is very ‘Sleek’, as the name would suggest. It is a soft plastic, which tends to cling to other makeup & get dirty, but hey-ho, it looks pretty!

wpid-20141002_173600.jpg

Here are the colours in the palette. As you can see there is quite a wide range of colours, which I love, it means I can get a shed load of looks just from this palette 🙂

In the first half of the palette we have pinky purple shades & the other half has more wearable browns & taupes to make the look more wearable or deepen it up for an evening look!

In this palette there are 5 shimmery shades & 7 matte shades. This is great as the darker crease shades are matte, I prefer this as matte shadows are better at giving definition to the eye. Also, the white colour is matte, I love using this as a subtle highlight!

If you’d like to see a look I created with this palette, then go to my previous sleek post here.

Here are the swatches of the top line of eyeshadows…
