Benefit Lipstick haul

Only bought two thought I should do a quick picture haul


I lost my benefit jing-a-ling and was very upset so bought another whilst they were on sale for £7.

I bought a full finish lipstick in "Pinking of you" (what a cute name) I'm sorry I forgot to swatch so click here for a swatch


A really pretty fun pink colour I could not resist

£14- Benefit

 Then as already mentioned above I repurchased Jing-A-Ling



The swatch doesn't really show off the golden sheen that this beautiful product posses.  Its really natural and soooo pretty I lurve this silk-finish lipstick.

£14- Benefit

Empties April 2013

Emptiiess!!!!

I've split them into two sections bathroom/toiletries empties and makeup empties- although makeup only includes one product :(

Toiletries empties
1. Philip Kinglsey Elasticizer- sadly no repurchase.

I love this hair product but its soooo expensive. The only reason I got this one was due to my hair dresser selling it to me half price. I was told this would last me 2 or 3 washes but it actually lasted me 8- yes I counted. Although I do have short thin hair- sadly.
This product is hair mask, you apply it from your ears downwards on wet hair and leave it in for half an hour.
Afterwards my hair felt really soft and clean and lovely- but its too expensive just for "yay my hair feels nice and healthy" although I would love that.

2. Clearasil Daily Clear Skin Perfecting Wash.- likely repurchase

This wash isn't the most effective that I've found but its not far especially as its cheap. I used this everday in the shower it has a "moisturiser complex" which I love! The product is like a cream but with small exfoliating beads. I loved using this in the shower as it was really refreshing and made me feel so cream although it didn't clear my skin of spots completely but I felt like it really helped moisturise, it made my skin feel amazing. It also helped the way my make up sit.

3. Original Source Vanilla Milk and Raspberry shower gel.- DEFINATE repurchase.

All time favourite shower gel, I get through it fast its just sooooo yummy. All I have to say :)

4. Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo and Conditioner.- Already Repurchased.

I love these shampoos and I have already bought them and they are ready to be used- although of course I am currently on "my swap" where I swap shampoos so that my hair doesn't get to "used" to them.


5. Aussie 3 minute miracle- Already Repurchased


This is amazing. Nuff said.


6 & 7. Clean and Clear: dual action moisturiser. Clean and Clear: deep cleansing lotion.

Moisturiser: Repurchase. Works amazingly- and its drugstore. Not to thick not to thin. It absorbs really quickly. All dry skin on my face has suddenly gone. It helps sports as well (hence the dual action). Lovee.

Cleansing lotion: Definite Repurchase: This is probably my favourite skin care product of all time! You apply using a cotton pad and besides it being for sensitive skin it does tingle/sting a little but nothing unbearable. It tightens your pores and leaves your skin feeling polished and smooth.


8. Sure deodorant in clear aqua crystal- sort of repurchase

I just like the smell. And its works. Everyone needs deodorant :) But as I'm all spontaneous I always like to try out the different smells, although this is on that I always come back to. 

9. Clearasil Deep Cleansing Pads- unlikely repurchase.

I like them I just feel they don't do as good a job as the Clean and Clear Cleansing lotion. The reason I bought these was that they are nice and compact for travelling- they aren't going to leak and you don't need cotton pads to use it. There are very exfoliating and have a similar affect to the clean and clear. May repurchase for my next holiday. Also I may repurchase as I know I'm going to repurchase the daily scrub (empty number 2) from the same line and I like to keep my skin products from the same line than mixing and matching, because when I do mix and match my skin can't cope (being the extremely sensitive skin that I have)


10. Batiste dry shampoo tropical- definate repurchase. 

Yes I have liked everything that I've used up- hence why I have used it all up.
Who doesnt ever need a bit of dry shampoo! I don't only use this on 2nd day hair, I use it when my hair needs a bit of volume. Its also good to use when you have clean hair but you want to curl it, it curls better with a bit of texture- which this dry shampoo gives it.
I have tried every scent and I don't really like any of the scents but this one I feel absorbs into my hair the best and doesn't leave white powder in my hair. Even though I don't like the scent I do get compliments that my hair smells good when I have used this. Plus it's cheap and easy to get in chain supermarkets/ super drug/boots etc....

Toiletries empties done.


Make up empties

There is only one...

1. MAC Pro-longwear concealer. - unlikely repurchase

NOOOOOOO its all gone :( this has been my favourite makeup item for the past.. I dunno since I got it but no more will pump out! I remember the day when the pumps were so big I used to use extra as foundation. I love this concealer. but its just too expensive, although if I pop into the mac store soon enough I may just give it a repurchase but its unlikely as I really want to try erase paste and also the Laura Mercier concealer duo palette thingy. Sorry mac :(.



That was my empties, these empties posts will be comming regularly but not too often (maximum every month). Thanks for reading.

My Favourite Perfumes


Hello again, as promised here is My Favourite Perfumes
As you can see there are 6 perfumes here and I will tell you why I like them and who my overall favourite is.



I love this perfume. Every time I wear it I feel fresh and girly. I receive loads of compliments and the staying power is actually really good. I've always loved juicy perfumes but have never loved them enough to blow £60 for them. This one I managed to pick up a set in Debenhams for £22.50 in the sale which included a 40ml perfume and a 20ml roller ball- 10ml of La Fleur and 10ml of Viva La Juicy original.

I think the packaging is super cute but it did have a little dangling "COUTURE" charm which seems to have gone amiss. Sadly as you can see I'm running out of it :( Its a definite repurchase, but the dilemma is do i pay £50 for the £75ml price, or £10 for double the amount but a quite ghastly bottle...?





This scent is so fresh and a "spring day" kind of scent. It's not the most popular of Benefits perfumes- my other all time fave is Laugh With Me Lee Lee, but I ran out about 3 months ago and still haven't repurchased- which says something to me.
This I also had a full bottle of, all gone now and on to the mini handbag size I got in the Cresent row set, If you want to see a whole post on this set click here
This perfume makes me feel good and just lifts up my mood instantly- a quite casual day time perfume- wouldn't say it enticed the boys. The perfume that I think works best on the boys (cringy I know, but isn't that why we wear perfume?) is Britney Spears perfume- the pink one with the green dots. I'm not a great fan but I always get compliments.


3. Jack Wills Luxury Roller Ball scent- Poppy

Sorry about my strange hand position

This scent is sadly discontinued but I cant lie- I love it! Smells just like a good British smell- ya know?
Jack wills perfumes are soo amazing but they are quite aftershavey smelly so aren't really "boy magnets". Not gonna talk to long on this one as you can no longer buy it but I still have two stocked up.




Lucky enough English Velvet is so similar! -NB: they've changed the packaging to transparent bottle, also you can purchase this in perfume form which I'm sure i will as this is running out.

Basically try it out





There are so many things I love about you
1. The scent
2. The adorable packaging
3. The facts thats its not tones of perfume its like a little bottle- I'm not sure why this doesnt annoy me.
4. Not ridiculously expensive

The perfume is quite sweet but with musky vanilla and coconut undertones. Its quite tropical coconutty which I love! (these are my explanations I'm not sure of the actual ingredients) Quite hard to get now- a few years ago they were everywhere


6. Victorias Secret PINK warm and cozy


Ahhhh I love this smell! More of an autumnal kind a scent but in England it basically is Autumn all year round -_-. As it says a really warm scent that smells like being round a campfire toasting marsh mellows. 

On the back it tells us to "Cozy up in Toasted Vanilla and Peony"
I quite often use perfumes as room sprays- this one is the best but I still prefer it as a perfume

75ml: £7
150ml: £15






My ultimate favourite changes with different times of the year
winter- Jack wills English Velvet
Spring- Garden of Good and Eva
Summer- Viva la Juicy La Fleur
Autumn- PINK warm & Cozy


Overall I've gotta say Viva La Juicy La Fleur. It just works for me

Bourjois Healthy mix DRUGSTORE foundation review


Hi xx

I am so happy I have found my perfect foundation match!

Being pale I have trouble finding the perfect shade.
Being fussy I HATE matte finishes.

Previously I have been living off maybelline dream matte mouse which i now hate, why did i ever try it! But if your one for cakey matte foundations- go for it, it is the uk's number one.

I tried the rimmel wake me up but i felt the shimmer didnt help conceal my spots, sort of illuminated them.

I also tried revlon colorstay due to the massive hype it had. I was in the the colour 150 buff. Again it was a matte foundation, which I dont like. Having gotten 3/5's of the way through my 2nd Revlon Colorstay I decided there must be something better! So in my local boots i did a massive swatch test looking for illuminating foundations, including rimmels match perfection, l'oreals lumi magique, maybellines fit me, and bourjois healthy mix. I swatched them all on to my hands and then half an hour later after doing my other shopping I came back to see which one looked best

Rimmels Match perfection- great colour match but sadly the last bottle in my colour had broken :( and the pump had snapped off.
L'oreals lumi magique- the lightest colour in my boots was good at first but then oxidized to be too dark.
Maybellines fit me- Colour range in this boots was poor only had three colours all too dark- althoguh there is an amazing range on line. But I have a strict rule of not ordering foundations online unless I know my perfect colour.
Bourjois healthy mix- Jackpot, the lightest colour did me well maybe even slightly too light but I do wear bronzer so works out perfect. Really natural glow more on that after pictures.


 Sorry about the french.. its english on the other side...


 blended in
 I apply with the real techniques buffing brush

 better shot
close up



This is sold for £10 in boots and superdrug.

It smells amazing- which at first I wasn't so keen on the fact my foundation smells but it makes me feel really fresh and awake.

It applies really smoothly and I like to use the real techniques buffing brush that comes from the core collection (which I may do a separate review on?) ignoring the fact that this really should be used with loose and powder foundations.

It gives a really neutral glow without highlighting my acne. It looks natural and since I have worn it (twice?) people have complimented me on my skin, and one of my friends: "glowy and fresh".I recommended it to my friend having the same problems with drugstore foundations as me and she bought it yesterday and tells me she loves it! I where the shade 51. (FYI my hand is darker and more pink toned than my face)

I have a tricky situation where I have freckles and spots, I want a foundation that covers my spots but doesn't mask all my freckles. The reason being is everybody knows I have freckles so when they are covered it instantly looks as if I'm caked in makeup. This foundation actually seems to do quite well at this- I'm not sure how but I love it.

I love the packaging- glass bottle so feels fancy, but has a pump!! Which feels like such a luxury after being through 2 Revlon Colorstays.


Highly recommend this, I think this is my first bottle of many to come of this foundation.

MUA undress your skin powder highlighter

Hello everyone!!

So, on a sort of recent trip to superdrug I had a little peek a boo at one of my favourites - MUA or Make Up Academy.

They've brought out a new line - the "undress your skin", I was goin to pick up the naked 2 palette dupe Undress me too. But it's of course very similar to the undress me palette which I am extremely loyal too so decided to give it a miss, a decision I regret.

So as I wanted to pick something up but was in a rush I picked up their highlighter. I have wanted to pick up benefits high beam for about three years now, just have never gotten round to it. Quality drugstore highlighters are quite hard to find, the majority being chalky or too fake and sparkly.

This I have used everyday and love

The bluey pink tones have come up as gold in the pictures, but you get the idea

I really really recommend it, it hasn't broken me out or irritated my skin and its drugstore!!! Who doesn't love cheap!

Retails in superdrug for £3
