Hey Lovelies, how are we all? Sorry I haven’t blogged in ages. Since getting back from holiday I’ve just been a bit distant from my blog. And there is nothing worse than forcing blog posts. So I’ve been keeping track of any ideas I have had and am now ready to get back to it. I have been posting to Instagram so I haven’t been completely gone.
GOSH VELVET TOUCH LIPSTICK
Today I’m kick starting my month break with some new beauty products. Lets start with this GOSH Velvet Touch Lipstick in the colour Nougat. Wow, what a really fab lippy. I have quite thin lips so I often shy away from wearing lippy and head towards a gloss, but this dusk pink nude is so nice. I have to admit I have a similar shade lipstick from Loreal, but this one is so smooth and as the name suggests, velvety! It is an A/W make up staple for me, its dark enough to not look odd against my pale-ish skin.
No7 INSTANT RADIANCE
I love love love to highlight and contour. Not as extreme as Kim K but I like to look a bit bronzed and shimmery. These No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter and Bronzing Highlighter are perfect for summer skin and winter skin. The bronzing highlighter is great for when you have some colour, as it shows it off even more with that summer glow. The highlighter is great for brightening eyes and highlighting above your cheekbones. I use it everyday and the results are always fab. Below you can see what they both look like on my skin tone. Shimmering goodness in a stick!
GOSH 9 SHADES- TO ENJOY IN NEW YORK
I really am a sucker for eye shadow palettes. This muted purple hues one by GOSH is so pretty and girly. I love the look of a purple smokey eye and this palette helps me create the perfect day smokey eye for work! The middle 3 colours are my faves they are so autumnal. For £9.99 in Superdrug I think it’s a really great addition my make up collection which does consist of a lot of Urban Decay. This palette fits in so well with my Naked 3 Palette.
Have you picked up any new beauty products lately? Let me know in the comments below, I’m always stalking the make up isles when I go shopping!
Oh! You can find the whole range of Gosh Cosmetics in Superdrug stores or online >here< (this post isn’t sponsored I just really love finding new beauty products).
Yep, the really really cold weather has yet to hit the UK and we already have the arrival of the BOOTS CHRISTMAS CATALOGUE!!! Saying this I won’t be rushing down to Boots anytime soon to pick up my ‘most wanted’ items. As much as they are reasonably priced, I’d rather wait until just after Christmas, umm I dunno, maybe brave the Boxing Day sales or just wait a while after and go hunting for my favourite items, which will be by then 75% off! Score!
Last year I purchased so much and saved so much money!! Happy times indeed! I found a really cute H! by Henry Holland set which included an eyeliner, nail varnish, nail file, necklace and lipgloss. I loved it so much I went back in a few days later and got another one for when the lipgloss ran out! Haha! It’s still sitting unopened somewhere in my room. Whoops!
So I started to flick through the catalogue, and immediately wanted like everything. I did however stumble upon from firm favourites that I will either hunt for after Christmas or they’ll go on my Christmas list. But thats ages away yet.
Yay!!! I love just having a good old browse through catalogues! Normally its an Argos one or NEXT Home, but this is just another thing completely! A place where I can get even more beauty products all packed in a fancy Christmas way! There are tonnes of these stacked up in Boots, so go pick yourself one up! Perfect for finding stocking fillers/ presents/ everyday purchases/ oh I’ve just popped into the city I think I need a new Soap and Glory mega face cleansing box set…
This CUTE OR WHAT wash bag is just adorable, I personally wouldn’t use it a a wash bag it would probably be used as a pencil case type thing. That way its always on display on my desk. I got some CUTE OR WHAT products last year and they are really nice. I’m always on the look out for ‘one off’ body products. Just to mix it up a bit! Oh and also the bag is a really sweet looking fox…. need I say more!
Every year without fail I always stock up on Fearne Cotton’s contribution, the design of the products themselves are just awesome, girly yet slightly edgy. Something that I myself try to be! Taking a plunge into the ‘nail’ trend that has surely taken over my friday evenings ha! There are lots of nail goodies to be found in this collection. Ranging from £8-£18 I’d happily buy these now, but I’m a scrimper so I’ll wait to steal a bargain when they are 75% off! hehe!
Oh look! Nail Varnish! How did you stumble onto my ‘favourites’ list! I don’t like nail varnish at all!!
butter LONDON, as much as I love nail varnish and all that, I haven’t seen these polishes before, they look pretty decent and at £12 each, must be as good a quality as Nails Inc. which are also £12 each!
I am pleased to say that these items and some more that may have snuck in after re-looking through the catalogue have made it onto my favourites list. I know that a lot of them like the Fearne Collection do sell out really quickly over the holiday times but fingers crossed I can snap up some fab new beauty products!
As I mentioned in my post yesterday, I’m heading to Westfield tomorrow to spend some birthday money, so I will hopefully (if I just ‘MAN UP’) be maybe recording my first youtube haul video?! But that just depends on whether I can stand talking to a camera knowing that I sound like a baby! goo goo gaa gaa hehe
