Nail Swatch!! No7 Vivid Violet Nail Polish!!

Hello guys!!

I have a nail swatch today, of a product I wouldn't say I'm a h—uuuu--ge fan of. Not the product, the shade. I'm loving matte shimmerless shades on my nails.. Well, not really matte. Just shimmerless, frostless, and metalicless. Yup that ought to do it.

HAUL!! Vixoden cosmetics eyeshadows !!


I am sooooo glad I found THIS facebook fan page called Kim's Creations, 
she is seriously THE BEST at what she does.
Her cosmetics are called Vixoden's Cosmetics and you can check out her facebook fan page HERE

Manhattan Multi Effects Eyeshadow in #152 Beige [review w/ swatches!!]

Hello agaiiiinn :D

I have another review today :D

It's on the multi effects eyeshadow by Manhattan in the shade #152 Beige

I got this off a blog sale and I was not that excited to try it out to be honest, 
I just figured what the hell and got it. 

I'm glad I did. 

Quite sleek, 
but annoyingly enough doesn't open thoroughly 
and that kind of bothers me, 
but I learned to work around it. 

REVIEW!! ELF studio make up removing cleansing clothes

Hello guys!!

I have another ELF review for you today. 

I need to update those hits, misses and meh posts about ELF products, 
as I got sooo many more ELF products, 
but I have another ELF package coming so I might wait for that package to arrive first. 


I know how much you love these ELF reviews, 
so i try so hard to realllyyyy test them out rather than just 
trying it out once or twice and do a review. 
I try to be thorough and short  so I don't bore you out. 
And I'm going to start the review right away. 


Helloooo beautiful people of the netttt :D :D 

I have an awesome haul today, 
I'm very excited to share,
actually.. I got these a while ago 
but I never had the chance to haul and stuff. 
But now I do. 

and here's what I got:

often referred to as a "must-have" item, a "favourite", a "Holy Grail" product and what not.

Make Up Look!! Glittered Green Smokey eye & a nude peach lip !!

HELLO GUYS!! - again

I have a look I pulled together months ago, 
and I always postponed it
for some unknown random weird reason. 

I really really like this kind of look, 
in fact, 
I'm going to get me some single eyeshadows specifically for green smokey eyes. 
I'm thinking NYX single eyeshadow in mermaid green, NYX  single eyeshadow in hunter green or Wet n Wild single eyeshadow in envy. 
So if you have any of those eyeshadows, I'd love to know whether you find them good or not. =]
Pretty please ^.^


Collective EBAY Accessories Haul !!

Hello guys!!

so I decided to wait and do a  collective post on what I got :) 

So here are the photos:

Customising your own palette and depotting - my experience #

Hellooo =]

You know how I share the good experiences and pass them on to you. 
Well, I have a bad one I want to share with you. 

Making my self made customisable palette. 
Beauty's Bad Habit brilliantly explained how to make your own customisable palette.
I followed all the instructions correctly, and so far so good. The problem was that the eyeshadows kept moving around, even though I glued a magnetic sticker to the bottom. 
The palette became too messy for my liking overtime, 
and I ended up ruining quite a few eyeshadows because they kept running around and even some blushes.

MASSIVE ELF 50% HAUL!!!!!! #2 .... £80 worth!!

Another ELF haul ladies and gentssssssssss

I think it's mostly ladies, right? 

Here's what I got, and my initial impressions...

Drum roll pleaseee .. 
maybe not. 


Mineral eyeshadow set in Basic Browns

This would be an awesome present for a friend. 
The eyeshadows are very pigmented, like my other mineral eyeshadows. 
The shades are not necessarily unique hard to find shades, and they're all metallic / shimmery shades. 
There is no matte eyeshadow in this set, which I think there should be.
But I'm not complaining. 
The eyeshadow brush is slightly bigger than the regular elf eyeshadow brush. 
The contouring brush is a thinner version of the blending brush and is more tapered at the top. 
The eyeliner tip came broken. It's brown. I am not a huge fan of the liner to be honest.

ELF studio line cream eyeshadow in bronzed

This is bigger than the cream eyeliner. If I'm not mistaken, it looks almost equal to the studio lip conditioners but it actually holds up 2.5g of product more.I love the texture. It's creaseless and gorgeous as a shade. 

ELF regular smudge eye sponge
Haven't tried this yet, but looks pretty standard, 
and quite stiff. 

ELF studio tinted moisturiser in beige
I tried this today, it has yellow undertones. I thought it would be a shade darker but that's ok. 
It blends to the skin effortlessly, and I quite like it. 
The packaging's cute. 


 ELF's studio flawless finish foundation spf15 in buff
I swatched this once but I haven't tried it out. 
I adore the packaging, 
the pump and everything. 


ELF's eyebrow treat and tame in medium
Haven't tried this yet, but I love the rubber packaging and 
it looks quite sleek. 

ELF healthy glow bronzing powder in luminance
A second backup to my all time favourite highlight. 

ELF studio matte lip color in coral 
I love this!!! The packaging's kind of wobbly, but my oh my the shade's gorgeous. 
It's very similar to Wet n Wild s Mega Last Lip Color in Just Peachy, 
which happens to be one of my top 5 favourite all time lip products. 

ELF nail polish in teal 
I love this shade!! I expected it to be more of a turquoise shade, 
but it's honestly more a gorgeous green summer shade. 
 It's quite pigmented too, 2 coats is all you need. 
Love this!

ELF nail polish in mint cream
Haven't tried it yet, 
This is a  much whiter version of teal to me.
But again - still have to try it

ELF studio make up mist and set
I love this so much I got myself a fourth bottle, that is, 
a second back up xD This is my 3rd repurchase. 

ELF mineral foundation in warm 
I tried this out today, it's yellow toned but it's quite light on my summer kind of tanned skin, 
I think this would be perfect for winter. 

ELF eyelid primer collection
I tried the champagne and pearl ones today and I was not impressed to be honest, 
I much prefer the regular eyelid primer and the mineral eyeshadow primer. 
These two applied streaky, and they are not very pigmented either. 
Maybe I need to get used to a rather different texture, 
I do like the cardboard packaging and the mac-gloss-like packaging :)

2 ELF black cream eyeliners
I LOVE this. I am still on my first one and I'm half way through. 
I got my first at the end of August, 
I didn't really like it back then, but now I use it every single day. 
I got two, one for a friend, and one as a backup. 

ELF studio line concealer in ivory
I love the packaging, but I HATE the product so far. 
This swatches streaky, 
it does not transfer to my under eye area at all. 
and the product is soooo NOT blendable, 
it starts to yucky-crumble up once you start blending it. 
Tried it on without a primer, 
with a primer. 
No difference. 
Will try it a few more times, 
if I still won't like it, I'll try to make something out of the packaging, 
because I really liked it. 

ELF Therapeutic conditioning balm in strawberry creme
I wanted to try the four of these to be able to make a full on review on them, 
because I couldn't find one collective one on the net. 
I didn't really like this one - the texture is the same as the others [that I love]
but the smell is nothing special, quite faint too. 
I'll stick to my 10 blackberry cremes xD 
I'm not going to throw it away though or anything , 
I still like the texture. 

ELF studio pressed powder in buff
A back up. This is my favourite pressed powder so far. 
I still love the mineral booster in tinted, 
but I prefer pressed powders to loose ones. 
I hit pan on my first xD
ELF mineral lip liner in peachy 
I LOVE this!!!!! I am soooooo getting me a couple of backups of this one.
Love this all over the lip, it's not drying, super long lasting, 
and the shade is uh-mazing..........!!!

ELF studio conditioning lip balm spf15
in peaceful pink
I got this one after Holly Ann Aeree raved about it in one of her videos. 
I also have mellow melon and nice and natural which I got in ELF's other 50% off sale. 
I like the shade, but I'm favouring mellow melon as I'm loving coral shades this summer. 
Happy buyer. 

ELF studio line mineral infused face primer
I love this thing, 
before I didn't, 
but now I do - 
I'm running out and got myself a backup xD

Anyway - 
that's it for this post xD
Thanks for reading , 
and take care xxx

Make up Collection#2 : blush collection - #peaches, oranges, corals


I am so thrilled to have all the time in the world to blog again, 
because I enjoy sharing information and posts 
with ladies who share the same interests :D 

and here's another collection post featuring my peach/coral/orange blushes.
I LOVE these orangey shades, 
and I DO have some I favour over others xD

So let me start mumbling xD

TOP: NYX blush in cinnamon, NYX mosaic blush in love;  BOTTOM: Sleek Blush in Pan Tao, NYX rouge cream blush in orange

NYX powder blush in cinnamon
This was my first powder orange blush, and I used to love it, 
until I depotted it, 
and basically - messed it up. 
This is on the yellow side, 
but it is seriously gorgeous, 
and awesomely pigmented. 

NYX mosaic blush in love*
 I have been using this blush almost every single day this summer, 
it is the most gorgeous blush ever. 
I think it's safe to say it's my favourite. 
I like to mix the shades together, 
but you can try picking the individual shades. 
It has a nice lovely shimmer to it, 
 when mixed together.

SLEEK blush in pan tao
One seriously gorgeous orange peachy matte blush. 
My second favourite.
Just lovely. 
Packaging's so quite and blendability is amazing.


NYX rouge cream blush in orange
This is my first ever orange blush -
which started my craze on orange blushes. 
I don't really like cream blushes, 
they're quite hard to work with
compared to the powder ones, 
which in turn are quicker to use. 
I love to use this on my lips as a lipstick though, 
you can check a lip swatch of this over HERE
 This is a true orange shade and the orangest of these orange blushes. 
Pigmentation's awesome.

 you're waiting for swatches right??

Sleek Pan Tao, NYX cinnamon, NYX love, NYX orange

Sleek Pan Tao, NYX cinnamon, NYX love, NYX orange

NYX rouge cream blushes on lips - lip swatches and review !!!


I have another post today woohoo!!

NYX rouge cream blush in hot pink and orange

Someone asked me on my review for this product whether it can be used for lips or not, 
and I said yes, but I wasn't sure -
because I never tried it out. 
Guess what? 
I did - 
Multiple times, 
and I love it!!

NYX rouge cream blush in hot pink and orange

I find it has awesome pigmentation, awesome texture,
it is quite similar to the nyx round lipsticks,
and the only bummer is that you have to apply it with your fingers, 
otherwise - 

and I have some swatches to prove!!!

I would describe the shades as follows:
HOT PINK: The hottest, brightest, barbie poppied pink I own!! - Love it
ORANGE: A true warm orange. Gorgeous!!

and here are the swatches!!




I actually love these more as lipsticks than cream blushes, believe it or not. 

Thank you so much for your support, 
and I love to hear what you have to say :)
Have your ever tried them on your lips? 

xxxx :D
