I've only had this little wonder 5 days and it's fast becoming my favourite shampoo ever!
To start with it's a solid shampoo, easier, small and lighter to haul back and forth to my boyfriends every weekend and perfect for holidays. Its jasmine scent is amazing and lingers in your hair all day. It contains shea butter so it leaves your hair feeling so soft but skweeky clean! My hair looks in so much better conditon and it's all thanks to this little yellow bar.
I love it when i find things that really work :) I would seriously recommend this if you haven't already tried it or have never tried a solid shampoo before, it might just suprise you!
When i'm at college i have to walk past topshop twice a day! and i can't help but want half of everything in it. Every week or so they change up the front window which is my cue for a little nosy!
Today was one of those days. The window was looking all lovely and new so after college i went in for a browse. I should know by now there is no such thing as me going in to topshop for a "browse". I ended up spending almost £50. Expensive browsing!
Heres what i got :)
I've had my eye on this shirt for ages! But when i found it was the last 8 i pounced on it haha.
This is just a plain peachy coloured v-neck top with cute detailing on the back. I love how topshops plain stuff always has something different about it.
I'm going into Manchester this weekend with my boyfriend and there will hopefully be a haul video up soon of what i get :)
and i'll try not to get lured in by topshop again! But i'm not making any promises.
I'm a dry shampoo addict, and not ashamed to say it! It goes every where with me and my brand of choice is Batiste. It's cheap as chips and really good quality. I've used other brands before but i always come back to this one.
I have dark brown hair, and if you have too you'll probably know that dry shampoo isn't as forgiving to us brunettes as it is to blondes! Accidentally put too much on and you get a not so lovely greyish tint to your hair.
So any way, I was browsing ASOS's beauty "just in" section when i found... Batiste's new dry shampoos for brunette and black hair!
I'm pretty excited to say the least!
it doesn't really say much about the product, only that they're specially formulated for brunette and black hair. But i've put my faith in Batiste and ordered some :)
fingers crossed! my hair could be greyish tint free in no time.
Like many people, i walk past LUSH almost every time i go shopping and am enticed by the smell. But i go in and have no idea what anything is! Theres people everywhere coz it's always super busy and if i stay in too long and the smell gives me a head ache.
For those reasons i've always stayed clear of LUSH, that and i'm unfortunate enough to have a perfume allergy and assumed that no smell that strong could be natural! But after doing my research i found most of the ingrediants are natural so i decided to give LUSH a go.
Rather than go into the store and spend loads of money on things i don't know i'll like, i headed over to ebay where you can pick up 15 random samples for 7 pounds, thats with postage and packaging!
I think this is a good bargain. and because they're random samples, you get to try things you might not pick up in the store. I received mine today :)! and heres what i got....
Soap sand stone ice blue honey i washed the kids angel delight (i tried to find this on the website to see what the full size looks like but it's not on there :s) vanilla in the mist
Bubble Bars the comforter blue skies and fluffy white clouds gold star
Ballistics jingle spells supernova lush pud
something that could be either a bubble bar or a ballistic but wasn't labeled! i'll probably use it as a bubble bar and see whether it bubbles or not, then i'll know.
Massage Bar strawberry feels forever
Body Lotion dream cream
I can't wait to get trying them! They all smell so amazing! They were delivered when i was at college and my mum had put the package in my room, so when i got home my room smelled so gorgeous.
I'll let you know how i get on and also try to find out what the mysterious unnamed sample is :)
So i thougth this would be a good place to start :)
As you'll probably notice it's mostly Mac and Benefit! Those are two of my favourites makeup wise. Although i do tend to stick to what i know works for me - something that i'm trying to stop!
From top left to bottom right
Benefit Her Glossiness Lip Gloss in my people, your people
My go to baby pink lipgoss with a bit of shimmer. Looks great over nudes, i team mine with Gosh Darling (134).
Benefit Hoola Bronzing Powder
I love this bronzer! It's totally matt and doesn't cake or come out orangey on skin. I don't like bronzers with shimmer so this is the perfect one for me.
Mac Studio Fix Fluid in NC15
Needs no explaination! I swear by this foundation. I have oily/combination skin and I'm prone to break outs so i want a full coverage foundation that doesn't feel heavy or look heavy for that matter! I'm also trying out the Revlon Colour Stay Foundation in Buff but i've not made my mind up yet on wether i like it more of less than the Studio Fix, but i'll let you know! :)
Eyeko Beauty Cream
I was a bit hesitant to try this at first, the idea of putting a pink toned highlighter on my face as a cream seemed a bit strange. But i was proved wrong! I wear this every day under my makeup. It's a 3-1 cream, a highlight a face cream and an eye cream. It's infused with skin perfecting light reflectors and antioxidant Vitamins A and E plus a Vitamin C boost for a radiant, clear complexion. (straight from the box!) I was expecting it to leave my skin quite oily, but it sinks in really well and my skin has never felt so soft!
Benefit Moon Beam
Golden/apricot highlighter. I've only just started using this, before i was using Clinique Up-Lighter Liquid Illuminator. I deffinately preffer it to the Clinique, but i have found it doesn't blend as well. Other than that it's a great product.
Mac Splashproof Lash
When they say waterproof, they don't half mean it! It's practically makeup remover proof! This is an upside and a downside for me. It says on really well and you won't start to get panda eyes throughout the day. But i'm the kind of person when i'm going to bed at night i want my makeup off as quick as possible, you won't get this with Splashproof lash. You really have to soak the cotton pad in makeup remover and leave it on yours eye for a few minutes, and even then theres still a bit of rubbing to do!
Mac Powder Blush in Pinch O' Peach
I go through fazes with blush - reds, pinks, plums. I like to change them every few weeks and i feel like even though it's a small difference, it gives me a whole new look. I really like this colour it's a pinky peach sheertone, great for giving a quick flush of colour.
Bourjous 3d Effect Lip gloss in no. 33
I bought this lip gloss after seeing it in one of pixiwoo's videos. I got it in 33 which is a true nude. It has a fair amount of shimmer, so use cautiously! It also has a brush applicator which i really like.
Benefit Lip Plump
My holy grail! this is one of the products i really couldn't live without! i have ruby red lips naturally and i HATE it. this completely blocks it out. It's meant to be a primer but i just use it on its own. (Always put on over lip balm, it's really drying!)
Blistex Relief Cream
I've tried many a lip balm but non even compare to this! i can't stand my lips being dry so i carry this everywhere (i even have one in almost every room of my house!) It really moisturises and sooths. Loves it!
GOSH Velvet Touch Lipstick in Darling (134)
I'm a nude lip girl, always have been, always will! I tried out the infamous Barry M 101 but it did nothing for me. It caked and came off really easily and was really drying. This on the other hand glides on, doesn't cake and is really creamy.
Antibacterial Hand Gel
This is another thing thats constantly at my side. I'm a total germ freak! and especially with all this swine flu buisness going around you can never be too careful.
Benefit Badgirl Waterproof Eyeliner, Black.
I wouldn't say it's waterproof but it sure as hell stays on! I hate having to re-apply eyeliner all day so this is a great product.
Mac Blot Powder in Light
Until about 3 months ago i was using the sheer select pressed powder to set my foundation but i found it cakey and heavy. One of the girls at Mac suggested i try this instead. It's a colourless powder that sets makeup and gets rid of shine. A total life saver!
Mac glaze Lipstick in Frou
I love this lipstick, it's a goldeny nude (yep, another nude!) with a slight shimmer.
