Pay Day Haul Part 2 - Boots

So I wasn't expecting to do this haul for a few days yet, because I placed the order online yesterday, but it turned up this morning, and thats with standard p&p, so Boots I am very impressed!
Here is what I got.

This is everything in the boxes, I even got some free samples, which is always appreciated!

Anyway, this haul is quite bargainous. I am running out of eye cream so I decided I wanted to try the Origins Gin Zing eye cream, and when I looked on the Boots site I saw that they had a offer that if you got the gift set, which includes the eye cream, a mini lipgloss duo and mascara, for £12.50 (half the price of the eyecreams rrp) I snapped it up straight away.
I also had to repurchase my Oilatum Natural Repair moisturiser as I had used all my last one up, and I had also made up my mind to get some Lanolips lip balm to try, I opted for the Lemonaid one as it is meant to scrub the lips as well. After adding these two things to my basket I saw that it is buy 2 get one free (the eye cream wasn't included in this) so of course I had to pick something else up! I opted for the Soap and Glory Fab Pore Hot Cloth cleanser. I opted for this because I moved today and have no skin stuff here so may as well try something new. I have also been wanting to try a hot cloth cleanser for a while now.
So I managed to get all this for £30, when the eye cream alone should have been £25, I am very impressed with my bargains and can't wait to try these out!

Pay Day Haul

Sorry I have been a bit MIA, I have been busy and all over the place, not to mention that for the past 2 months I have been struggling money wise and it makes me very jealous to read posts etc, but I am back, very happy and super excited. Anyway today was payday and I got a little bonus so I thought I would show you what I got.

So I got Chanel Vitalumiere in 10 Limpide, a MAC 109 brush (my first full size MAC brush!!!) Barry M polishes in Blue Moon and Mint Green and the cutest Cath Kidston 3DS case.
I decided to go for Vitalumiere and the 109 brush after watching Tanya (Pixi2woos) videos. I was torn between the normal Vitalumiere and the aqua versian, but when I tried them on my hand I mush preferred the Vitalumiere.

Here is a close up of the polishes and foundation so you can get a better idea of the colours:

At first when I saw the foundation outside the box I panicked slightly as I thought it was way too dark, despite having tried it on in the shop and looking at it in sunlight, but I grabbed my sheer glow to compare the colours and saw that it was only slightly darker, which is good because I have been thinking my Sheer Glow is a bit light at the moment. Anyway here are the two side by side, the Chanel one is in shade 10, Limpide, and NARS Sheer Glow is in Mont Blanc.

So thats what I got on payday. I have had a amazing day, and I am very excited to be back blogging! Will let you know how I get on with the foundation.

Where have I been?

Sorry I have been neglecting my blog as of late, I just haven't really felt like blogging, despite the fact that I have been wearing more make up then ever.
Another reason I haven't been blogging as much is because I have been concentrating on YouTube. I have made a channel, its more to do with gaming (my other hobby) so I think that is where my main focus will be at the minute, sorry!
Anyway if you are interested:

Hope everyone is doing well, I am still reading and enjoying!

Another FOTD

Oh look 3rd FOTD in a row, gosh I am inspiring at the minute, and to be even less inspiring this one is basically just copying Kandee Johnsons wedding make up video. Personally I think Kandee is bit of nut case, but she does gorgeous make up and decided to give this one a go. Oh in case your wondering why I am doing so many FOTD's, basically its payday next week so no money to haul, although I am putting a ban on buying make up for a while as I have to save up for the 3DS, and I have nothing new to review because I use the same stuff for years at a time, so FOTD's it is whilst I have fun experimenting with make up! Enough ramble, FOTD time:

Now for this look I am actually cakes in foundation and went quite heavy on the blush, but it still doesn't show up too much on camera!

Face: YSL Foundation - Opal MAC Moisture Select Concealer - NW20 NARS Bronzer - Laguna NARS Blusher - Desire MAC Cream Colour Base - Pearl

Eyes: MAC Cream Colour Base - Pearl MAC E/S - Dazzlelight MAC E/S - Scene MAC E/S- Carbon MAC E/S - Wedge (for eyebrows) MAC E/L - Feline Dior Mascara - Dior Show Blackout

Lips: MAC L/L - Stone MAC L/L - Subculture MAC L/S - Pink Nouvea MAC L/G - Viva Glam Gaga

So yea lots of make up used. I also strengthened my hair for the first time in ages, it feels a bit weird and not really me, but I feel very pretty today, until I put on my hooters top, then I felt a bit like a porn star, but anyway here is a picture of the complete look with my straight hair:

Can't wait to get the split ends cut off! Hope your all having a great weekend!

Experimental FOTD

So today I watched XSparkages new video which is loosely based on a Katy Perry make up look, so seeing as I had the day off today and didn't have to go out in public I decided to do a look loosely based on Katy Perry and Xsparkage, here is how it turned out:

I love how flawless my skin looks in these pictures, because in reality its blemishes galore! Anyway onto the products I used. Eyes: A mixture of Inglot shadows Illamasqua Precision Ink in Abyss I was clever enough to forget mascara :( MAC Feline Kohl For the brown dots, MAC Teddy Kohl Face: YSL Teint Radiance (I got it wrong the other day, sorry!) Foundation in Opal MAC Moisture Select Concealer in NW20 MAC Ripe Peach Blush Ombre (just the pink part) MAC Wedge as a contour colour Lips: MAC Stone Lipliner MAC Myth Lipstick

I had quite a lot of fun with this look and really enjoyed the results of the eyeliner, but I think even if I toned it down it would still be quite unwearable. Anyway if you haven't checked out Xsparkages latest tutorial I recommend you do!

Woodwinked FOTD

So MAC's Woodwinked is a product that loads of people seem to rave about, but one that I never used to get on with, mainly because every time I used it I seemed to look very ill (as in the picture below):
Because of the fact it made me look ill, it was pushed to the back of my make up drawer for a while, but recently my friend Rachel (allthingsrachy) has been using it a lot, which has made me decide to give it another go, and I think I have finally got the hang of using it and I quite like the effect I get with it now, so here is my Woodwinked FOTD:

So I used: Face: YSL Teint Resiste Foundation - Opal MAC Moisture Select Concealer - NW20 NARS Bronzer - Laguana MAC Blush - Bite of an apple Eyes: MAC Shadow - Woodwinked MAC Shadow - Wedge MAC Shadow- Twinks MAC Cream Colour Base - Pearl Illamasqua Precision Ink - Abyss Helena Rubenstein Mascara- Feline Black MAC Kohl - Teddy Lips: MAC Liner - Stone MAC Kissable Lip Colour - Woo Me

The Only Was Is Essex - Fake Tan

So it appears that Lauren Goodger, from The Only Way Is Essex fame, has just released her own range of tanning products. I thought it was quite funny and had to be shared. I am assuming that because it is coming from a Essex girl that these products will be quite dark. I actually really want to try them but don't fancy shelling out those prices for them when the only information available on them is literally what is shown on her facebook page, which is the product and price. Currently there is a mousse which is £17.95, and a lotion, which is £15.95, or you can buy the complete kit for £28.82.

So what do you think, would you ever try them? Do you think they will be any good or do you think she is just cashing in on the shows success? To be honest I couldn't think of a more appropriate product for them to release.
