MAC EXCLUSIVE!!! Marcel Wanders

MAC and Marcel Wanders have teamed together and brought out yet another line! From first glance they seem abit higher priced then other lines that have been brought out with the Sheer Mystery Powder at £39.00. A little to pricey for me but hey some people will be buying this! So in this collection they are a couple of lipglosses and lipsticks!

I dont think i will be buying anything from this line but what do you guys think? 
To buy or not to buy ?

Eyeko You Little Gem!!!


So I recently I signed up to the Eyeko Ambassador scheme, and after a few hunts around I decided on the products I would purchase this time round! I went for Eyeko 3 in 1 cream with extra glow, Vampire Polish and Eyeko Fat Balm in Frosting! When the postie arrived with my package I was surprised that the lovely people at Eyeko had sent me a few freebies to try, I received London Lips in Portobello and Graffiti eye-liner in purple! So here are the pics and swatches ( sorry about the ton of photos I just wanted to show you all the colours!

The nail varnish looks pretty!!

The cream is very soft and sparkley I love the effect under my foundation, a good product but not one I will need forever!

The purple liner isn't completely to my taste, I don't know how I would wear this and for this reason I have only swatched it here I am going to do a look with it to see if it looks better on than it does here, however this isn't for me im afraid!

Here is the swatch for the fat balm, when I received the product I was a slight disappointed at the size they are rather smaller than they look on the site! They are also allot pinker then they look, and give of a good colour, the smell is also delightful. I think this product is a great one to keep in your handbag as if your blusher ever needs a bit of colour when your out its a great easy alternative! Also doubles up as a lippy. FAB FAB FAB!

The London Lips in Portobello, it does look here quite a corally pinky colour, however on the lips its quite a neutral nude colour and can be seen in person in my previous post! I think its a great casual colour. And also lasted a good couple of hours!

You can slightly see the glitter in this picture and I would say gives of a true to life picture, it definitely needs two coats to give a deep black effect, I also recommend using a top coat as it has quite a matte effect and I like shiney nails. I don't believe this is a over fab product not bad not great :)

What do you guys think?!?

Soo recently I have been seeing allot of sparkley nails everywhere and loving the effect for this time of year! And I found what i think to be an amazing colour! Ive doubled it up with my Supermodel by Leighton Denny, However I think would look great on top of most colour!
What's the colour I hear you scream? Pink Fizz By Models Own!
I picked this up for £4.99 from River Island! And I think the effect is really really nice and my nails definitely sparkle!

Nails Today

So whilst I was sat bored tonight I thought lets dig that Leighton Denny box out and freshen up them fingers! The colour I chose was called supermodel and is very similar to Barry M - Mushroom! So I often go on about Mr Leighton Denny, I discovered him one night when I couldn't sleep and popped on to the channel QVC! So the box i purchased i feel is really good value! As they do last a good 5 days without chipping!

This products retails from QVC at £32.92 and it is absoluley amazing I dont think anyone can beat his products!
So within this box you recieve 
  • Nail Varnish Remover
  • Undercoat
  • Crystal Finish
  • Slick tips
  • Trio Buffer
  • Hoof Stick
  • The eight colours I received - My Fair Fuchsia (Gorgeous Pink). Mauve Over (Mauve Colour). Gorgeous Grape (Purple). Chiffon (Pale Pastel Pink). Viva La Diva (Stunning Red You Can See It In A Earlier Post!!). Just Perfect (Peachy/Orangey Pink). Supermodel (Pictured). Creme de la Creme (nude/natural).

But this product is amazing (im not getting any commission to say this, I actually believe it!)

To Buy or Not To Buy??

YSL Faux Lash Effect Mascara ..... Oh Deary Me!!!

Soooo I am very sad to have to say this but I feel that people just have to know what's been going on! So to start of for many years I have been a lover of big false looking lashes, I don't want no stumpy ones! I bet allot of you are saying 'hear hear' ha ha even though were not in parliament its still a problem! So numerous times I have bought the YSL faux lash effect mascara that retails at around £22. Abit on the hefty side but it did have a wow effect and that sort of eased the pain! I found this product lasted me around 6 weeks, which I was very happy with, since i always got comments on the length of my lashes i felt it was deffinitly worth my hard earned cash!
However the problems all began when my last tube lasted me a mere pathetic 3 weeks! And what took the biscuit I had noticed a repition in the problem a flat nackered brush! It was so limp and lifeless - in the words of Cheryl Cole! And for £22 i expect more than three weeks! Here's my picture eveidence!

I hope  you can see what I mean, just a plain lousey product, and yes this has happened to me numerous times and I just kept buying it since I didn't want to believe it! I have also tried numerous other methods of cleaning/using the product/making sure I don't pump it up and down. To be fair ive had enough of you now, and your out of the make up bag!!!

What do you guys think ??

Luscious Lush

Yesterday whilst I was out shopping we walked past the Lush shop and I don't know how anyone can walk past with the smell that comes out it just invites you in straight away!
Soo I was browsing around and smelling all there products, I also tested there new perfume sticks, I was going to buy one but i couldn't choose the scent I wanted silly I know!!
So I ended up buying two new products and they were lip products (which seems to be a trend on this blog at the minute!)
The first product was also from their new Christmas range called Snow Fairy Lip Tint!
Snow Fairy Tinted| LIP Balm
It smells amazing and I know this sounds odd but smells like it tastes! You just want to eat it up. It retails at £3.95 but definitely worth the money. It leaves your lips pink coloured and so smooth and soft sort of just glides on :) and its a limited edition so you need to snap it up if you like it!

The next product i picked up whilst in the que was the lip scrub
When you apply the lip scrub it seems a little odd at first! Feels abit like you have eaten a sugar doughnut and not licked the sugar of your lips :P . But overall it is a great lip exfoiliant and left my lips feeling silky soft and shifted any skin that was giving me the chapped lip look so overall big thumbs up to this product!

Mandy Moore Inspired Look

Today I was browsing on numerous forum's and seen many people asking for the Mandy Moore inspired look! So I browsed google for a look that she seemed to use quite alot! She seems to use alot of brown colours so heres my take on the look and i will post the link at the bottom for the tutorial on youtube!

Glamour Mag! Nails Inc! Freebie!

So I really like buying mags when you get a little freebie to try out, this week ive been and picked up Glamour magazine, and this week you receive a free nails inc nail polish the colour is called Savile Row! It's best descibed as the colour of a purple skittle ( the sweets!) and it kinda makes me want to eat my nails ha! If only they tasted the same!! The colour is described as glossy plum! They retail at £9.90 soo I paid £2 for the mag pretty bargain really!

MAC Viva Glam GaGa !!!!!!!!

I recently purchased the viva glam gaga lipstick from MAC, as ive stated before Cher Lloyd has been seen wearing the colour, so here's my pictures of it , I love this colour more than I thought I would have! It seems to go with every type of make up I do :) Love It!!!!

Pukka Up Buttercup!

Now the winter is approaching here in England, the tempreture is dropping to low for my liking. ( We had snow 2 weeks ago brrrr!!) My skin doent seem to like it either, and due to the hate my skin is dry and just plain nasty really! Firstly i noticed my lips were dry, chapped and splitting :( ! So i took a trip to boot and purchased some new products to try and cure them ! I picked up Carmex, E45 lipcare and a plain  old vaseline!

Generally i would sing Carmex's praises! However all three of these products have seemed to dry my lips out no end! And basically my face isnt a pretty sight at the minute!
Does anyone have any good recomendations for me?

After numerous amazing singles, dating the gorgeous Taylor Launter ( who wouldnt hmmm?) and Kanye West publically slating the girl, it seems like everyone is discussing her for some or other reason.Whether you love or hate the girl you have more than likely listened to her or read about her!

So here is my latest video on my look of her make up from the latest single!

Sleek Kajal Eyeliner!

I recently purchased the Sleek Kajal Eye liner and after hunting numerous different superdrug stores i finally found it! I instantly purchased this product with it only retailing at £3.99 it was BARGAIN BARGAIN BARGAIN! I haven't actually tested this product yet im going to in about 5 minutes when I start getting ready for work, and I will review it later. It can be quite scary looking at the product and seem unusual to use but I will give you an open and honest opinion after a little testing!

They originate from Asia, and products are aimed at people with darker skin. however I dont see how a eye-liner can differ!
The only problem I can see appearing is the thickness of the liner but i will let you know!

After using this product , all i can say is AMAZING! I dont know how i ever used anything different :) you should deffinitly give it a check out ! such a fab liner that lasts all day too!

The Flawless Foundation!

I believe that flawless foundation is easy for everyone after a little practice and advice! I have decided to use video methods instead of photos as i think that you can get the idea better. ( I do apologise for the lighting my camera didn't want to play that day ) but i hope you can still see what I mean.

As the video wont upload im uploading them onto youtube so I will post the link here later, once it has been processed!

November Besties!!

Today I decided that I would start doing a monthly review of some of my monthly faves!
Soooo after hunting the cupboard over the past couple of days for my faves or ones that I forgot that I loved! I also believe that they will be good for other readers too!

  • Umberto Gianni Back Comb in a Bottle! ( I like to add little pictures so you can see the products, so you know what your looking for!)

The product gets a a BIG BIG thumbs up! Its amazinnggggg, I love love love it! Does give the back-comb effect like it states! The only problem I found was it needed to be re applied after a couple of hours, however I only applied a small amount! £5.49 from Boots!

  • Next up the amazzzingggggggg Tangle Teezer! 

I have had the product since December and it would hit my favourites every month of the year! Even though its a bit funny looking at first you will soon get used to it!  It is great for after you get out of the shower when hair is abit more tangled and knotted! It massages the head to when you comb your hair ! They also protect the cuticle of the hair which is an added bonus! And any mammys and daddys out there, they are a savour with childrens knotty hair! I would recomend this product to anyone! Even though they are abit pricey they are deffinitly worth the spend. RRP £9.99

  • L'oreal Studio Secrets Anti Shine Primer!
This product apply's extremely easy to the face, it further dries super super fast! Which is amazing since who really has the time to wait for there face to finish drying?!?!? It further immediatly takes away shine of your face before your make up is applied! I further found that it made my foundation last the whole working day ( And trust me it was a hard day, babys putting beans and peas along your face in your hair, yes it made me get excited that my make up hadnt budged!) Wooooooo!

A further brownie point for the primer is that there is different varietys such as Anti redness and Anti Dull!

  • MAC Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul

A stunning stunning colour for the winter. Sort of peach with a dusty red and a flicker of glitter! Check you MAC counter for this one

Girls blush, sometimes, because they are alive, half wishing they were dead to save the shame. The sudden blush devours them, neck and brow; They have drawn too near the fire of life, like gnats, and flare up bodily, wings and all. What then? Who's sorry for a gnat or girl?Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Cher Lloyd!

Cher Lloyd of the Uk X factor Sang Empire State of Mind on the 06/11/2010. Alot of people have been asking about the girls lippy! I personally believe it is another fav from Mac -  The colour Viva Glam GaGa!Viva Glam Gaga Retails at £12.50! And the full RRP (less VAT) from the sale of this lipstick goes toward helping women, men and kids everywhere affected by HIV and Aids.Even better since doing your bit for charity ! I personally havnt tried these lipsticks so i cant coment on there pros or cons but please feel free to comment if you have tried them !

Recreating the Miley Cyrus look from her new video Rock Mafia!

Soo i recently seen alot of questions about how to create the miley cyrus make up look from her new video rock mafia!
After watching the video her make up base is a very basic foundation application, with not alot of bronzer! Then a pinky/peachy blush!
The eyes I applied by Max Factor a Burnt Bark colour it is a really good eyeshadow, and easy to wear everyday without looking over the top!
I applied a Rimmel eyeshadow of black to my upper and lower lash line!
Further placed a coat of L'oreal million lashes extra black to darken the effect!
A set of false lashes can be applied for a bigger lash effect!

Burnt Bark Colour

After re looking at this post i decided the look was a little shabby ( my version!!) sooo here's my second go and its the video this time check the link .... http://www.youtube.com/user/TLSBeauty?feature=mhsn#p/a/u/1/6VEAecrJB5k

Rants and Raves! Hair - Mascara - Primer even a little freebie

Yesterday I ventured into town and took a stop off at superdrug and after a hit on the plastic I purchased some products which odd I love and others I don't really rate!

  • The first products I picked up where Aussie Volume shampoo and conditioner. 

After hearing alot of praise about them and the adverts are pretty much everywere ( plus there on 2 for £5 even better if you as me), personally i found  that the shampoo deffinitly adds extra volume leaving it looking silky and smooth and not unnatural volume. But i believe Aussie deserve alot of praise for all of their products and also the smell is amazing.
Here's a little picture so if you want to try you know what to look out for!

  • The next product i picked up was the Herbal Essence Beautifull Ends Split End Cream!

I found the packaging hard, the pump on my bottle may be broken however it takes some good presses to get some of the cream out.
I have only used the cream a couple of times and didnt really think that much too it, it works the same as any other serum smooths them over but not for very long, soo its a basic ok smoother but nothing that wows you when applyied! Sorry Herbal Essence another naff but very affordable product from you! I also found the products don't smell as yummy and lovely as they used too!

After feeling that I had purchased enough hair products, I ventured into the make up aisle. Needing a new mascara I was a little scared to try a drug store product being a loyal favourite of the Dior Aftershow mascara or YSL Faux effects lashes.

  •  I decided to try the L'oreal Million lashes in extra black!
 I found this to be amazing ! wondering how i ever used anything else, the product does everything it claims to do giving me big full lashes, absolutly 10 out of 10 for this product could do anything wrong!

  • Next up and another round of applause to The Studio Secrets Anti Shine Primer!

I have never been a big fan of primers, with the last one i purchased i didnt really notice any difference to my make up!
However L'oreal seemed to give me a big slap on the face and shouted try our primer (not literally!!) There are numerous primers L'oreal offer, theres the Anti Shine, Anti Dull or Anti Redness.
Using this product for the first time last night I found that it sat on my skin perfectly didnt lay greasy or on top of my skin. And matched with my foundtion looked stunning! Deffinitly reduced the shine (Im prone to oily skin and found that it kept the shine away all night after hours of dancing too!)

The lovely assistant within Superdrug told me that since I had purchased two products you recieve a free liquid eyeliner - at the time i wasnt too fussed over this since i have found one that i like, and using it every day  i have tried a far few over the past couple of years!
L'Oreal Superliner Carbon Gloss

  • L'oreal Superliner - In carbon black.
After opening the product up and having abit of a nosey. I decided to give it a go. The tip was very spongey which was quite unusual. However to apply the eyeliner was extremely easy, i found that it needed a couple of goes to get the level of black that i personally like! however it was very buildable and dryed very very quick. Im starting to thing it could replace my Mac Liner.

So all in all a big thumbs up to L'oreal which has swayed me to try
more of there products! Also below is a picture of the face products applyied!
Using the million lashes and superliner!
