Revlon Quad: Addictive.

I was on the hunt for some good matt eye shadows in Superdrug the other day, when I came across this lovely quad by Revlon. It has four really wearable everyday shadows in it; a great highlight shade, two all over lid colours and a medium brown crease colour.

This is really great for the everyday girl who wants some natural shadows for school or work. For £7.99 I really don't think that you can fault this quad and I would recommend to everyone!

Winters Here - Must Haves!

Today it has been rather nippy, to say the least, in England and it inspired me to do a autumn/winter theme post. I will be sharing with you a few of my favourites/must haves for the chilly months.

Chunky Knit Scarves:
 I really love thick, warm, chunky knit scarves. They keep you super warm, but still look fashionable. The one shown above I got from Tesco a while back in the sale for around £5, bargain!
Pale Pink Blush:
During the summer months I like to wear bright blush, but when autumn and winter comes around I tone it down abit and go for more pale pink colours. I just got this Benefit one, but I have a feeling its going to be one of my faves.

An Intensive Lip Balm:
I suffer from chapped lips all year round, especially in the winter. The best way I find to treat this problem is with Blistex intensive moisturiser, its an extremely moisturising lip cream. I haven't found anything that is as good as this, the only con is that it does leave a white cast on your lips.
Berry Lipstick:
The berry lip is all in this season, and I am a huge fan! My favourite is the Revlon lip butter in berry smoothie, its a very wearable berry, so if your scared of wearing colour like me then you should defiantly give this one a go!
I hope you all enjoyed reading.

How Much Does Your Face Cost?

I have seen quite a few of these posts floating around the blogging world recently, and I thought it would be rude to not share my two cents with you (did I just get the punch line wrong?).
Sometimes I will wear more makeup than this, normally just on special occasions, and sometimes I will just wear some concealer, powder and mascara.
So, how much does your face cost?
- Revlon photoready concealer in 004, £4.49 (Buy here)
- NYC smooth skin pressed powder in translucent, £1.99 (Buy here)
- Mac mineralize blush in dainty, £19 (Review here, Buy here)
- Urban Decay eyeshadow in midnight cowboy, £14 (Buy here)
- Maybelline gel eyeliner in intense black, £8 (Buy here)
- Lancome hypnose star mascara in midnight noir, £21 (Buy here)
- Dior kiss lip gloss in snow cherry, discontinued - New Dior lip glosses £21 (Similar here)
 A grand total of: £89.48
To be honest I think that £90 for a full face of makeup isn't that bad.

NYX Cream Blush In Natural.


Hiya lovelies, today I will be reviewing a recent love of mine, NYX cream blush! NYX is quite hard to find in the UK but if you can get your hands on any, its defiantly worth it.
This is the only product I have tried from the brand so far, and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. The pigmentation is incredible, a light hand is required and the wearing of it is great - I would say it lasts a 5-6 hours. This specific colour reminds me of my favourite blush of all time, MAC dainty, although the NYX one is more intense.
Overall I was really happy with this product and I can't wait to try more NYX in the future! You can buy NYX from their online store here, or from Ebay with free delivery here.

August Favourites.

Today I will be sharing with you all my favourite beauty items for the month of august. I don't have loads of products to talk about this month, only five, but I have been really loving all of them for the whole month.
Essie Nail Polish in Mademoiselle: £7.99 (Buy here)
I got this nail polish at the beginning of the month and have been wearing it non stop! It's a VERY sheer pale pink polish, that can be worn alone, on top of a french manicure or as a top/base coat. Honestly it looks as if you have near enough nothing on your nails, but I think its great for when I don't want to wear a bold nail polish!
Revlon ColourStay Mineral Finishing Powder in Brighten: (Discontinued, but can be found on places like Ebay)
I Seriously Love This! I haven't tried too many highlighter's in my time, but I can say this is my favourite! It is a straight up pink colour, which I didn't think was going to suit me (as I have yellow undertones), but when it's on the skin it looks more of a white, and gives the prettiest glow to your skin. And these 'mineral finishing powders' are meant to be a dupe for Mac MSF's, which are around four times the price!
Mac Powder Blush in Melba: £17.00 (Buy here)
I would say that 95% of my blush collection consists of pink blushes; pale pink, bright pink, deep pink, I could go on. So, this orange blush is kind of not something I would normally go for, however it does really suit me. Melba is a muted peach colour with a matte finish so it looks really natural and I have worn it for the majority of this past month.

Lancome Hypnose Star Mascara: £21.00 (Buy here)
Although my picture doesn't do it justice, lets all take a gander at the B E A U T I F U L of this mascara. It's glittery! Now I am not going to say too much about this mascara as I am going to be doing a review on it soon, but I have been wearing it all month and I just love the way it makes my lashes look!

St. Ives Blemish Fighting Face Scrub: £3.99 (Buy here)
This is probably the best scrub I have ever used on my face; it's oil free, contains 100% natural exfoliants and contains salicylic acid! I use it about once or twice a week and it helps keep my skin nice and clear.
What are your favourites for August?
