Kisses for A/W!

Hey guys, its been a long time, but wanted to show you beautiful lot what lipsticks I'm wearing this autumn winter. They range from high end brands to drugstore bargains, hopefully there is one to everyones taste. I decided to pick out my top ten, but they are not placed in liked order, just in random. 

Mac Cremesheen Lipstick in Creme D'Nude - A great all year round lipstick, possibly my favourite Mac lipstick about. Its a gorgeous cream/nude colour with a slight gloss to it! 

17 Supreme Shine Lipstick in Bella - This for me was a great find, its a matte nude/brown lipstick, which is just gorgeous, its looks great over the top of a plum lipstick too, just to tone it down a little.

Miss Sporty Perfect Colour Lipstick in Malaga - I recently found this beauty hiding in my draw, after I bought it a while ago for a halloween lipstick, its a lovely deep red, and also stays put all day!

Sleek Pout Paint in Port - I have so much love for the Sleek Pout Paints, and this has to be my favourite shade they do! A gorgeous deep plum with a yummy gloss finish, perfect!

Jemma Kidd Lipstick in A La Mode - Was given this for a birthday present this year, and fell in love with it straight away, I love a nude lipstick, and this one is simply gorgeous!

Sleek Matte Lipstick in Mystic - Sleek lipsticks are one of my favourites, they have such pigmented colours, plus last forever! This is a beautiful mauve pink shade, an absolute must have!

YSL Rouge Volupté in 12 - If I had to pick my top lipstick at the moment it would be this beauty, I just love the YSL lipsticks. It apply amazingly and is extra smooth, the colour is just gorgeous a great winter plum, which lasts all day!

MUA Lipstick in Shade 7 - For just a pound you really cannot go wrong with this lipstick, a yummy deep pink shade, perfect to brighten up these gloomy days.

Mac Lustre Lipstick in Bright Plum - I bought this lipstick on a whim from the Mac website a little while ago, before checking it out in store or searching for swatches online, and I'm so glad I did! Its a yummy deep plum shade, with a lovely sheen finish.

Sleek Pout Paint in Pinkini - Yet another Pout Paint in my top ten, as you can tell, and as I said before I just love them, this shade is a bright but yet deep pink, why not try it mixed with Port, to create double the beauty!

Hope you girls enjoyed this post, whats are your top lipsticks for this Autumn/Winter?

Illamasqua Cream Blushes

Betray and Crush

This post is a long time due, as you can see I haven't blogged in so long, and to be honest its just cause I have had a lot of other things on, and haven't really being feeling it!

Just a little post showing you lovely girls some swatches of my Illamasqua Cream Blushes, in which I purchased a long time ago when I attended Clothes Show Live in Birmingham.

I have had cream blushes when I was younger, and thinking back I don' think I ever wore them correctly, smudging it in on the ball of my cheek with my fingers. So I thought it was about time I tried them out again. I love the consistency of these blushes, there super soft, and so easy to blend. I still find it difficult finding the right kind of brush to apply it, I'm currently using the Mac 190 Foundation brush which I don't think is the best option.

Any of your beauties got any tips on how to apply cream blushes?

Wild on Sleek!

Sleek Blush in Sunrise, Lipsticks in Liqueur and Babydoll

Just a quick post for you lovely ladies as I and getting ready to go out for some cocktails with Vic and Mel, but just thought I'd inform you beauts that at the moment Superdrug have a fab offer on in which it is 3 for 2 on there lip products, so as you can see I had to make the most of this offer.

I have a few of the Sleek lipsticks already and think they are just lovely, and they also have such a large range of colours and finishes, I picked up Babydoll and Liqueur. So far having only get them the other day I am already in love with Babydoll, and there clear lipgloss over the top just to make it sparkle. 

As I was buying the three lip products I thought I might as well pick up another one of there blushes as I already have Sahara which is a bronze colour, and wanted one that was just a tad bit darker but with more of a shimmer to it, and like my Babydoll lipstick, I have not stopped wearing it, its so pigmented so you don't need much at all which is great as it will last me a life time.

Whats your favourite Sleek product? Hope your going to all go make the most of this great offer ;)

Lip Venom

I really can't explain how much I love this product. I purchased it a little while ago from ASOS, and fell in love with it straight away. It's a lovely product, the scent of the lip gloss is cinnamon and it also add's a gorgeous sparkle to your lips. It look's even more gorgeous over the top of a bright colour lipstick too.

The only downside I have found with this product is you don't get much of it at all, a lousy 3.5ml, which for £15 is just a little shocking. Though saying that, I love this product that much no doubt I will be re-purchasing it as soon as I have ran out. Plus it comes in some many different tints and finishes, I just want to try them all.

Have you used any of the Duwop Lip Venom's? What one is your favourite?

Just a few NY Resolutions

One of my first new year resolutions is to act more like a lady. Yes I know this is a weird one, but when with my ladies we like to play up and be loud. This often involves me getting certain objects and pretending I have a penis, and saying "WHAYY" way to loudly. So this year, I would like to be more of a girl.

Another one of my new year resolutions is to save money, last year I was terrible, buying lots of stuff I don't need, and I have never used. I want to be more sensible on what I spend my money on, and would also like to pay of my cards. 

This is a funny kind of resolution, but this year I do not want to get in a relationship, I have been in a relationship constantly for the last four years, bar one month between break up, and sticked with it even thought I was not happy, just so I had a boyfriend. Now I think about it, what is the point in being in a unhappy relationship, when I can just have fun and spend more time with my friends. Simple.

This is my most important resolution, and the one I am going to try my hardest to stick to. Is to eat more healthy and lose weight. I've said for the last few years I will do this, but never have, and I feel if I don't actually do it this year, I am never going to. So fingers crossed.

Last but not least is to attend more gigs/shows, last year I hardly went to any compared to the year before. As I will be saving money from buying utter shit, I will hopefully be able to put it toward going to many more shows. I have already got a few planned with my babe Victoria, so I am pretty excited for that.

What are your New Year Resolutions this year?

What in my bag?

So after debating on what to blog about today, I thought I might give the 'Whats in your bag?' post a go, as I have never done it before. At the moment I am using my bright pink Marc B bag which I got from ASOS a long time ago. I tend to use this bag when I know I'm going to be wearing a lot of black, just to make things a little bit brighter.

As you can see I haven't got too much in this bag, as I had to clear it out for going to London the other day with my babe Chloe. The top thing that I carry all the time with me is my purse, which is buy Loungefly. The next thing would have to be my phone, I would simply feel lost if I didn't have my phone on me, I also like to carry my diary around with me, as I have a terrible memory, so often forget what day it is, let alone what I need to do. Make up wise, I don't actually carry much with me in the day, as i don't touch up my make up, unless I'm on a night out. The only things I do carry as you can see is my MAC Matt lipstick in Please Me and my DuWop Lip Venom. I also could not go out without having my lip balm, as I am a self confessed addict. Oh and of course my Fendi Perfume, as I just love it a little too much.

Other essentials I like to carry are tissues just incase, paracetamol and cold tablets. As for the big plastic tub, that is full to the brim with Sunflower and Pumpkin Seeds, this is because I am on a little health kick, so if I'm feeling peckish I snack on these badboys. Last but not least, I also tend to carry my headphones around with me too, when out or at uni, I listen to my iPhone quite a lot, so couldn't live without these.

What are your must haves in your bag?

Let's have some Cremesheen

Speed Dial and Creme D'Nude

After getting a MAC gift voucher for my birthday from Megan, Chloe and Lauren, I decided I really needed wanted is a nude coloured lipstick. I had heard things about Creme D'Nude before but wasn't actually planning on picking this one as I wanted one that wasn't as popular. Then on chatting to the MUA in MAC I come to the conclusion that I should go with more of a Sheen look rather then a Matt, just so it doesn't look like I've just covered my lips in foundation, lets be honest, that is not a good look. Now after buying Creme D'Nude, I am now in love. Its a really nice neutral tone with a great shine to it, and looks gorgeous with my new DuWop Lip Venom over the top.

As for Speed Dial, this was purchased when I went on holiday but I never got round to swatching it for you guys. Its a lovely shade of pink, again with a gorgeous sheen to it.

Whats your favourite MAC shade?
