Makeup Wish List October 2017

Makeup Wish List September 2017

With Christmas coming up (100 days to go as I write this!) I have been online shopping a lot recently so that I can get some ideas for beauty products I want as a present -yes Cal this is your hint... So I thought that I'd make a list of all the products I have my eye on as I also love reading these posts. 

Iconic London Illuminator Drops - Link 
I have had my eyes on this highlighter ever since Steph from Cocochic first tested it in a video and made me fall in love. I like liquid highlighters which are natural but also pack a punch, with the original shade a light hand can look really natural and glowing from within. 

Elf aqua Beauty Molten Liquid Eye Shadow - Link
These Liquid eye shadows look amazing! You all should know by now that if I can be lazy I will so liquid eye shadows are my favourite invention ever because they are so easy to use. The shade range of this product is perfect for Christmas with all the golden glitter shades. 

Beauty Pie Foundation - Link
I have had my eye on this brand ever since it first appeared on the scene but I've seen a mixture of reviews on the products and a lot of people debating whether it is worth the subscriber fee but I still want to try it. I love the packaging of all the products and the foundation really is the product I want to try the most.

Loreal Nude Cushion Foundation - Link 
Even though this is a reasonably cheap foundation on the drug store I am still to try it and I can't wait. I love light foundations which make my skin look dewy and healthy and a cushion foundation sounds right up my street. Every time I go into Boots or Superdrug I always forget to pick one of these foundations up so that is my mission in the next month.. If I remember.

Bare Mineral Complexion Rescue - Link
Everyone seems to have this bb gel in their makeup collection and this sounds like a great product for dry skin which I am really suffering with at this moment. Again I like to wear light formulas which show my skin through them so this sounds perfect for me.

Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette - Link
Who doesn't want this palette? I think by Christmas everyone will have this palette in their collection if they don't have it already. I live for brown plum tones with a bit of shimmer especially during the end of the year when all I am wearing in mustard, brown and black clothing.

Stila Magnificent Metal Glitter Glow Liquid Eyeshadow - Link
These liquid eye shadows are absolutely beautiful! I love liquid eye shadows for nights out because I am lazy and don't know how to blend properly so these are a god send when I want to look good on a night out. I want all the gold glitter shades which basically 6 out of the 9 shades.

Autumn Jacket Collection | Newlook and Zara

Autumn Jacket Collection | Newlook and Zara

Autumn winter fashion is my absolute fav and I have gone a little crazy on the jacket buying in the last few months. I have a different style of jacket for any occasion now and I don't think I will stop here either. All of these jacket are new apart from one very old swede jacket which I bring out every winter.

The first jacket is this dark grey fur gillet which I fell in love with when I saw it. I love gilets during the colder months to layer on top of thick jumpers and roll necks and I always feel dressed up wearing this style. I have this in two colours as well because I love this so much, I have a snow white version which makes me look like the abominable snowman. I love wearing earthy toned skirts with this gilet as the colours always compliment each other and also it looks like I have put a lot of effect into my outfit when really I've just thrown on some fur. Without this gilet I find some outfits look a little too plain so I like to add this to make the outfit complete. 

Running with the fur theme I have this denim jacket with a fur colour which looks really good on top of dresses or with black denim. I purchased one of these last year or the year before from Primark as everywhere else had sold out of this style denim jacket so Primark was my last resort. The jacket I bought wasn't exactly what I wanted so I have wore it a total of 5 times since I bought it... I need to learn to be patient! Anyway this jacket is exactly what I wanted and I love that the body is quite short so it really sorts high waist denim which I mainly live in. It also looks super cute with high waist patterned skirts which you know I love. I love the look of a roll neck poking through a fur collar as well so I like to wear them underneath the jacket. Although the jacket has the fur collar it isn't the warmest of jackets so it is a great jacket to wear at this stage of autumn when the weather isn't too cold.

Next have a different style of jacket which I am obsessed with. When I saw this out shopping I loved it straight away and thought it would look great on top of all my autumn dresses which suit a long coat more then short ones. It is quite big and over sized so I can wear this on top of any style dress because you won't see it underneath the coat and it does have quite broad shoulders so I think I will always wear my hair down this jacket. Does anyone else feel better with their hair down with some outfits or just me? Anything with puffy sleeves appeals to me so I had to buy it and it is like that is has a leather look finish so if it gets wet I can just brush the water off and the coat wont get ruined. I also like that it does't have a sip or clasp as sometimes that weighs down the jacket and it doesn't have nicely but I like how this jacket hangs as if it is closed

A throw back coat for you all is this super cosy fake sheep coat from the 915 section of Newlook from like 4 years ago. I love this coat because it fits like a dream and keeps me so warm in the winter, it is my favorite to wear when we are in the middle of winter. I usually wear this with a black or brown roll neck top or jumper with a skirt and it really makes the outfit. I will try and find one similar to this as I know this exact coat wont be on the website anymore. Whenever it snows I bring out this jacket because I know it will keep me warm and I won't be waking up with a cold! Over time the sleeves have appeared smaller and smaller on my arms so I have to style out the hidden hand look because my top/jumper sleeves are so long.

I'm finishing with my all time favourite yellow leather jacket from Zara which I purchased last year. I found this jacket in one of the many Barcelona Zara stores and fell in love straight away. I got it in a Small and it fits me perfectly and goes with nearly every outfit I try it with. I love that it is a mustard yellow shade because it really suits browns, burgundys and blacks which is what I wear a lot during this season.

Reasons Why I Love Autumn


You all know I am the biggest fan of Nude shades but I think most people are now aren't they? I live in Nude shades on a day to day basis and I wanted to take you through my favourite nude shades to throw in my bag.

The first nude I want to talk about is the Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lip Colour which I didn't photograph as it was in my makeup as you saw from my last post. It is so easy to keep in my hang bag and throw on when my lips are dry or I want to add a bit of colour during the day. I find it leaves my lips feeling looked after instead of dried out which is why I love it.

Next I have some nude pencils which I love to go between and the first pencil will be no surprise to any of you. I have talked about the Newlook Matte Pencils many times before and out of all the shades I own the nude shade is my favourite. I'm not too sure if this shade is still available to buy since I bought it quite a while ago but if you can you need to get it! The shade name is toffee Apple and if this shade isn't still available then I hope there is a similar shade!

The next pencil is the Kiko Lip Gloss Pencil in the shade number 10 and this is completely different to the Newlook pencil as it is a lip gloss so leaves a nice shine on the lips and is really easy to wear and apply throughout the day. I really like Kiko lip products and this pencil makes me want to try more products from the brand.

The last pencil I have is the Maybelline Intense Velvet Lip Crayon in the shade 630 which is such a good lip pencil and a really rich nude shade which looks really nice on the lips. All three lip pencils aren't too different if I am completely honest but it is nice to mix up which lip product I use.

Moving away from pencils two nude NYX lip products which are probably my two favourite products out of all the ones I am mentioning. I have the NYX Lip Cream in the shade Abu Dhabi which I tried first from NYX and fell in love with. The colour is super rich with two coats and when I want the over draw nude lip look this is the product I go for. I tend to draw round my lips with a lip pencil first and then pop this lip cream on top and it doesn't dry my lips out and gives me big full lips.

What's In My Shower | £1 Bargain Products

What's In My Shower | £1 Bargain Products
Kind of a strange title I know but I have some bargain shower products that I really wanted to talk about so I thought I would include them in a 'What's In My Shower' post.

First off starting with my hair Callum is a touch picky when it comes to hair products so we always have Tresemme products in our bathrooms. We currently have the Tresemme Volume and Body Shampoo and Conditioner in our shower and it is worth every penny. My hair is super thick and straight and it needs some help keeping its body and keeping it bouncy. These product do this as well as keeping my hair shinny and healthy. Because my hair is so shinny and straight it can get greasy quite easily so washing my hair can be a irritating task but you only need a small amount of product to do the job.

As for my body I found some absolute bargain shower products that make showering a lot more fun. I found in Asda of all places four Radox shower gels and creams all for a pound. Yes a pound! I love a good bargain especially when it smells so good!

I picked up four different flavors and each one is better than the first. First I have the Pomegranate and Red Apple Shower Gel which you can guess smells amazing! You only need a small amount of product for it to lather up and it leaves my skin smelling amazing. For just a pound they are absolute bargain purchases and easily something to stock up on. You can never have too many shower products and I like to change up what I use in the shower frequently. I also bought it in the Pink Grapefruit and Basil Shower Gel, the Cherry Blast Shower Gel and the Berry Blast Shower Cream which all smell amazing and are the best things to use when you feel a little bit grim.  The shower gels come with a hook as well so you can hang them in the shower which I love!

Now time to go have a shower I think!
