HUGE Colourpop Haul - including swatches!

Sadly, Colourpop doesn't ship over here in the UK. Thankfully, I have a great uncle who retired in Florida, who very kindly places my order for me, and gives my purchases to his daughter when she goes to the US to visit him, and she sends them to me once she's back in the UK. As long winded as this is just to get an order, one advantages is that, seeing as it is so long winded, I may as well place a big order, right?

Diorshow Maximizer 3D Review

As a big fan of Dior, of course I'm signed up to their newsletters, previews and such! I received a deluxe sample of their new Diorshow Maximizer 3D in the post the other day, so here's my thoughts on it!

My Picks from the Estee Edit

If you saw my huge spring haul you'll know I picked up a few things from Estee Lauders new line, The Estee Edit. I've been trying out the bits I picked up for the past couple of weeks.

My Boyfriend Meets Makeup

Meet my boyfriend Sam. He's very well accustomed to my make-up addiction now, and has been on so many shopping trips with me (being the extra swatch hand when both of mine are full up..) that I thought I'd test him and see what he's learnt.

REVIEW & SWATCHES: Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette

I recently purchased Tarte's Rainforest of the Sea Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette. Before I move on to the review of it, I wanted to quickly mention the shop I ordered it from: Rose's Beauty Store.  They're a stockist of loads of US beauty brands and they ship to the UK as the company is based both in Beverly Hills and London. The prices are a little bit more expensive than if you ordered from the US directly and converted the exact price in $ to £, but the prices on Rose's Beauty Store include tax. I would suggest that you actually save a little money on tax because it cuts out the middle man and charges couriers may slap on top. The shipping rate is excellent at only £2 for standard delivery (around 7 working days) too. Most importantly, it saves a hell of a lot of hassle with additional shipping and unanticipated tax costs*. Anyway, onto the review!

£1 Liquid Lipsticks & their high end DUPES

One of my favourite liquid lipsticks are the Essence Cosmetics Velvet Matte XXXL Longlasting Lipgloss. The colours are beautiful, and the formula is incredibly creamy. The best thing? They're £1 each!

Photo Shoot: After Thunder

On Wednesday, I'd arranged a photo shoot with George at 4pm. The sun was absolutely beautiful here during the day, and then - no exaggeration - it hit 3.30pm and the skies opened, thunder, lightening, the lot. I told Georgie not to worry, but in less than an hour the weather was beautiful again. So I raced to pick her up, dress her up, do her make-up and get out and get shooting. Here's all the details.

Huge Spring Haul - including swatches!

Some people Spring clean and get rid of stuff. I, on the other hand, just buy more stuff. On the 1st of April I placed some orders across several shops and they've all finally arrived, and I'm so excited about all of my new goodies that before I delve into them and make them look less than pristine, I'm going to show you my haul.

My Beauty Confessions

I've been waiting for deliveries to arrive with lots of goodies in to haul and review in the upcoming weeks, and in the few days limbo of waiting for them (and still suffering the aftermaths of the Easter sugar coma) I have, admittedly, been a bit stuck for blog post ideas. I always approach my own posts as if I'm reading someone else's: what would I like to see? I think I'd be curious to know what peoples beauty confessions  are, so here are mine.

YSL Babydoll Kiss and Blush REVIEW

I've never seen these reviewed or even mentioned on any blogs and I find that really surprising because these are one of my favourite products of all time.  I love a cream blush. I love lipstick. A product that combines the two? There's nothing not to like!

NEW Nars Liquid Laguna Bronzer REVIEW

I was beyond excited when this product was released! Powder formula Laguna is a holy grail bronzer, so you can imagine how interested I was when I saw the launch of it as a liquid.
