A little update

Hey! I back again!
I know I have left it a little long since my last post but I needed the time to work on my disso for uni and had various other things going on but i am back now and will hopefully stay on top of everything :)

So what else is new hmmm ohh yess as of late a makeup website called has put up Sigma brushes!! In the UK its pretty hard to get hold of them, well I think so anyway as you have to order them from USA and so have to pay tax etc and ends up costing a lot! So when I saw them on lovemakeup I jumped at the chance!! I purchased 5 brushes I would take a picture but unfortunately my camera is being silly and not connecting to my laptop :(
I'm sure you have seen them anyway but I will tell you which ones I bought: ss190, ss168, ss187, ss252 and the ss209! They are sooo beautiful and such great quality! Definatly go check them out! They selling out pretty quickly!

This is probably the most exciting thing that has happened in the past week! I am trying not to go purchasing anything else now, I want to save up for the Liberty of London collection by MAC. There are a few items in that collection I have my eyes on! I missed out on the ONE product I wanted from the bottem of my heart from the Spring Forecast collection, the blush ombre in Ripe Peach, it suited my skin tone so perfectly :'( I am determined not to miss anything this time!!

I think i'm going to leave it at this for now I should get back to my disso!! I will be back soon!

Take care

A quick trip to Boots!

It just so happens, today I purchased 2 other products on a whim whilst in Boots (UK drugstore). They are by GoodSkin Labs, the first one is called Lumecin.
This product is an 'overnight brightening treatment' and is supposed to even out skin tone, improve skin clarity and reduce appearance of pores. It claims results can be seen within 2 weeks. I decided to give this a go as although I'm quite happy with my skin I want to give it that extra 'oomph' and also I do have some enlarged pores which I cannot seem to shrink back!

To go with this I also purchased the eye treatment Eyliplex-2 as I have dark circles under my eyes, again it claims to reduce appearance of dark circles within 4 weeks. I only purchased the products today so I cant say much about them. I will be doing a full review on them in 2 weeks time to let you know how I get on with them and give you more details about the products too!

Skin care routine

Ello again!

I think for my first 'real' post I'm going to talk about my skin care routine. The products I use are pretty much all Lush products!

I use Angels On Bare Skin cleanser morning and night, it does a very good job of cleaning my skin without making it really dry, this is because it has lavender and rose which are known for their calming properties.

When you first see it you think what on earth?! Its a big lump of greyish coloured clay
like substance in a pot lol. To use it you take a penny sized amount, mix it with a few drops of water to make a paste to cleanse your face with and rinse off.
It has mild exfoliating properties but not at all harsh just very little so it gives you a good clean! It is a bit of a hassle using but you get used to it very quickly. I find it keeps my skin balanced, not too dry or oily and does a very good job of cleaning it, my skin almost glows after I've used it!

After cleansing I use Breath of Fresh Air toner also by Lush. My skin for some reason doesn't get on with most of toners but this one works really well for me. Nothing special to be honest just a nice refreshing toner. I am a little annoyed with the packaging, its a pump spray but my one doesn't seem to work :S but hey never mind not the end of the world!

Another lush product I use is the Vanishing cream. This moisturizer is amazing, its very good for people with combination skin. My skin just soaks it up, doesn't feel oily nor does it leave my skin still feeling dry! It balances out so perfectly across my face and deals with the oily parts and the dry parts with no hassle at all! Another plus point: a little goes a long long way!

This is what I do morning and night the only extra things I do is use a fresh face mask every 2 days, I use Brazened Honey. Its very exfoliating and clarifying, gives my skin a wonderful glow. It has ground turmeric in it which in indian traditions a bride uses before her wedding to make her skin tone even and give a healthy glow. I must say this mask does have that affect too!

Right, I think thats enough rambling for one post, its got quite long! I hope you enjoyed reading it, if i made any mistakes or you have suggestion how to improve the quality of my posts etc feel free to email me :)

Welcome to my little world!

Hi and welcome to my new blog!
Being a girl crazy about makeup I thought it was time I shared my knowledge and opinions with other beauty crazy girls and guys! I will share my views on products, let you know what I think of them and give my tips and tricks on makeup/skin care. I am hoping to do a makeup course in April and become a qualified makeup artist so hopefully I can maybe even help 'teach' you a few things here and there :)

I'll start off by explaining a little about my skin, I think this is quite important especially for reviews so you can keep in mind my skin type compared to yours whilst reading them.
Im 21 and thankfully have gone past the acne prone teenage years! I do however get a few minor breakouts here and there but nothing extreme that I can actually call 'acne'. I have combination skin, its dry in some areas and oily in others, mainly down my t-zone. I have tanned skin (Indian!), in terms of mac foundation I vary between NC40-42.

So thats a little bit about my skin and purpose of this blog, I do hope you enjoy it and find it useful, if you ever have any questions, suggestions or even things you want me to review send me an e-mail on :)
