So a little while ago I held a competition to win a STUNNING My Jolie Candle including a hidden surprise piece of jewellery…

orange-blossom-scented-jewellery-candles.jpg

I asked the question:

“IF YOU COULD INVENT THE MOST PERFECT CANDLE, WHAT SCENT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?”

There were quite a few entries and it was so tough to pick one.. however…

THE WINNER IS….

“I would make it smell of cigarettes and rum ( in a nice way if course) to remind my mum off her dad because he sadly passed away.”

BY ALANNA from IMAGALAXYGIRL

Congratulations and I hope you enjoy the beautiful candle as much as I do.

Lipstick of the day.

Uncategorized

img_1053-4

I have been loving changing up my lip colours lately.

A pop of colour can create such a difference to any outfit or makeup look and is so quick and easy to create.

Today I wanted to share my favourite lip shade that I am always reaching for in my makeup bag, time and time again.

SAM_11269

Loreal Paris: Juliannes Nude – £6.99

This lipstick is my ultimate favourite pink shade. I’ve mentioned it in many blog posts before and there is clear reason why..

The formula is super creamy and rich with a scent just like parma violets..yum! I feel as though it instantly moisturises my lips when applied.

As for the colour, its a very delicate soft shade so very wearable for everyday, it has quite cool undertones so works really well with my skin tone.

There are so many shades in the collection so head on over to your local boots to get your hands on them! I highly recommend.

My Jolie Candle Review + GIVEAWAY!

Uncategorized

img_1053-3

Good Morning dolls!

It feels as though I haven’t written a blog post in FOREVER!

I dont know about you guys, but I adore candles. My house is filled with different scents and I love how cosy they can make your home feel.

Today I wanted to share the beautiful brand, My Jolie Candle with you and reveal its beautiful products.

After a long day in work, I came home to a parcel delivery from the My Jolie Team and it was just what I needed to relax and unwind after a long day. I have heard quite a lot about the brand and how each candle has a special jewellery surprise hidden inside!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

It came so beautifully packaged filled with tissue paper and hearts, It just made opening the product so much nicer, knowing it was hand wrapped and lovingly packaged.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

As I delved into the box, I found a lovely handwritten card from the team and a little compact mirror and a candle lighter. I thought these were really nice personal touches and of course the compact mirror will ALWAYS come in handy…

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Ready to see what it looks like?…

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Ta-da! Here is the candle itself, and can I just say how pretty the box is right? Its prefect for spring. The scent I chose is Herb Fraiche and it smells so natural and fresh, it fills the room with the gorgeous smell!

 

Hidden inside the actual candle is a beautiful piece of jewellery which could be a bracelet, ring or necklace made from silver, white gold, Swarovski crystals or diamonds. They range in value and it is a complete surprise what you will receive.

After burning the candle for a few days, I managed to find my jewel hidden in the candle wax and here is what I found….

So this stunning necklace is Silver and with a gorgeous Swarovski crystal embedded into the chain. I was so surprised at how beautiful and unique the jewellery is and the quality is outstanding.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This is honestly MY type of jewellery as it is very simple and classic and will go with everything and or any occasion. I prefer to wear my necklaces a bit lower so the long chain is ideal for changing lengths. Even after receiving the necklace, the candle is still perfect to burn and continue using – I’m also a sucker for reusing candle jars for DIY projects… Anyone else with me?

So now for the EXCITING PART…

The My Jolie Candle Team have provided me another candle which I will be giving away to ONE lucky follower!

So if you want to get your hands on this gorgeous candle and its hidden jewel surprise then all you have to do is:

1: Answer this question in the comments or via twitter: 

IF YOU COULD INVENT THE MOST PERFECT CANDLE, WHAT SCENT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?

2: Make sure your subscribed to my social media:

The NEW Makeup Revolution: Fortune Favours The Brave SWATCHES

Uncategorized

img_1053-3

Good evening beauties!

I managed to get my hands on the NEW Makeup Revolution Palette,

“Fortune Favours The Brave”

And it is unbelievable.

No wonder it has been sold out almost everywhere!

I went to my local Superdrug determined to find one of these beauties and luckily I did! There was only 3 palettes so I grabbed one as fast as I could and handed over the money…

I was in and out of the store in 5 minutes.

Mission complete.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Firstly, take a look at this packaging.

Opulent, Sophisticated and GOLDEN.

Ive always been a fan of Makeup Revolutions simplicity with their packaging. Its very classic and elegant whilst looking very high end and chic.

The palette was created in collaboration with The British Beauty Blogger, who wanted to create a product that is suitable for all age ranges and price budgets. If you havnt checked out the blog before, Check it out HERE.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Thirty glorious shades.

Ranging from mattes to shimmers, they are all so unique and beautiful.

Something for everyone.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

If you take a closer look at the brush, you’ll notice its not one of the sponge applicators but a double ended brush. One side is a simple flat brush, the other a fluffy blending brush.

I dont think I have ever seen a palette so incredibly stunning.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

So the first lot of swatches are taken in natural light and with one sweep of the finger. These are the swatches from the top row of the palette. As you can see, they are so highly pigmented and the colour pay of is phenomenal. In this light they ALL look very matte but just wait until you step into some light.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The second row of swatches appear to be a more warmer toned and as always, highly pigmented. Take a look at that rich black shade! This image is still taken in natural light.

SAM_1037

Bam! Look at those colours shine! These images are now taken in direct sunlight. They are super rich and glossy. One of my favourite shades is the pink shade on the right called “Pink Diamond” and it shines like a diamond too! I love the deep rich gold colour on the left called “Super Gold”, its so stunning, imagine how lovely this will look in Summer.

SAM_1035

Back to the top row, The shades are a but more cool toned, but that doesnt mean their not as glittery! Check out the stunning white shade called “Ice Cloud“, it would look great as an inner corner highlight. The third shade from the left is a real peach shade called “Peachy” funnily enough. This would look great as an everyday shade and in the crease.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

It has to be said that I am completely in love with this palette and I cannot wait to create some beautiful looks for you guys.

As for the price, its only £9.99 which is so good for the quality and range in this palette. Plus, im not going to lie, doesnt it photograph well?

Do you want this palette? Get it whilst you can HERE.

How to get bigger looking LIPS (the easy way)

Uncategorized

img_1053-3

Have you ever wanted a fuller looking lip without going to extreme measures?

Me too!

That’s why I have found a fool proof way of getting that beautiful fuller pout – the EASY way.

So if you want to see how I get the KYLIE JENNER style lip, then just look no further…

Lets get started…

So I always start off with lining my lips, today I used a dark nude liner from my ultimate favourite store, Kiko Milano, then applied a lighter nude cream lip shade over the top.

 

Kylie Jenner Lips 2Kylie Jenner lips 3Kylie Jenner lips

The colour is super pretty and delicate. By lining the lips with a darker shade it adds a lot more depth and definition to the lip whilst the lighter shade brings the lips forward giving that 3d fuller effect.

The final step is investing in a good 3d lip plumping gloss. Mine is again from Kiko Milano and is absolutely unbelievable. I got matching nude/beige shade and the colour combination is beautiful.

Lip glossLip gloss.jpg 2Lip gloss3

When you apply the gloss, it does have a tingly feeling but the consistency is not sticky or heavy at all. Its very hydrating and gives the most incredible shine. After about 10 minutes of wear I really did feel like my lips were slightly more ‘plump‘! The shine creates a highlight that brings the lips forward creating the bigger lip look as I mentioned earlier.

Its super easy to create and more importantly super affordable. Below are all the links to the products used:

Lip Liner – £2.50

Cream Lipstick – £2.30

Lip Gloss – £6.90

That is it guys.

Green Goddess Tutorial

Easter Bunny

Good Afternoon guys!

It’s Easter weekend and I’m sat with slippers on, hot chocolate in one hand and Cadburys creme egg in the other.

Too much chocolate? 

Never!

I wanted to create a look that was inspired by Spring, but more so by nature. Everything comes alive in the Springtime, so im going ‘back to the roots’ (pardon the pun) with a beautiful green smokey eye.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

So im starting off with this pretty shimmery bronze base shade from my Makeup Revolution palette and applying it all across my lid.

SAM_0984.JPG

I’m using my fluffy blending brush which is perfect sweeping the colours and blending it flawlessly into my skin.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This little pocket palette is from Autograph by Marks and Spencers, aren’t these two colours so lovely together, very organic looking and fresh. The colours are highly pigmented and look beautiful.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I applied it using the same brush to my crease and outer corner. As I have green eyes, the colours just bounce off each other and emphasise my peepers.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Next up is this warmer green tone that I am going to apply over the top of that darker shade. This is going to brighten everything up and really turn me into a green goddess….

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Or the hulk…

SAM_0988.JPG

Im just applying that same shade to my lower lash line with a pencil brush and placed a highlighting white shade in my inner corner. This is going to brighten and awaken my eyes making them appear whiter and brighter.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Using my most favourite liquid eyeliner EVER.. the Loreal Super liner in black, im doing a simple and elegant wing emphasising on the outer corner to add drama.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Can we just take a moment to appreciate these lashes.

Heaven.

They’re by the brand Eylure and are possibly some of the prettiest shaped lashes I have ever used. I love how natural and feminine they look and those green lashes hidden in there are incredible. Perfect for this look.

SAM_0992.JPG

Last step is mascara. Im using, again a favourite, the Maybelline Sensational mascara to really blend my real lashes in and to add some dimension to my bottom ones.

The Finished Results

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Im so happy with how this look turned out. I thought it may be a little overpowering but it turned out quite subtle and smokey. For me, the lashes really bring the whole look together giving it such a girly and feminine feel whilst still looking very earthy and natural.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I would love to see what you lovelies think of this look and if you would like to see any more specific colour themes too!

Just let me know in the comments below!

I hope you ALL have a beautiful Easter!

Easter ‘Chocolate’ Swatch

Uncategorized

img_1053-3

Easter Bunny

Its 7:36 am on Easter Saturday and I’m awake writing this this little post with a hot cup of tea. I feel more productive in the mornings, especially now that it is getting a lot lighter and brighter in the mornings.

In the spirit of all things Easter I wanted to do a re-cap of one of my favourite palettes at the moment – The Makeup Revolution Chocolate Palette in Pink Fizz.  

Im pretty sure I have already featured this in my blog but in the spirit of all things  chocolatey, I wanted to show you beauties again!

Very suitable for the time of year I know, but this palette has always been my go to product. The colour range is beautiful and it just screams pastels, shimmers and glitters.

Swatches

So here are the beautiful shades and SUCH beautiful names to go with them! I have to say, I have used a lot of Makeup Revolution products and ALL of them have been so pigmented, amazing quality and long lasting.

This one is no exception.

Can we just talk about the packaging? Its very much like the Two-Faced Chocolate Bar, but I think I prefer this one if I’m honest! It also come with a signature sweet chocolate scent which makes me hungry whenever I apply….

Swatches 2

So here is a closer view of the colours, as I said before, loads of shimmery shades that are ideal for Spring and mostly pastels. I have highlighted three of my favourite shades, the first is on the top row  and its called ‘Sparkling‘. When I swatched it, I fell in love. Its a pretty beige champagne colour and would look amazing as a highlight shade on the lids and inner corner.

The second shade is on the second row and it is called ‘Bubbles‘. Again, another highlight shade and its a gorgeous highly pigmented creamy white shade.

Lastly, we have ‘Pink Fizz‘ on the third row. This is a good all rounder that would look incredible on its own or as a crease shade. The great thing about this palette is that it can be used every day and dressed up for the night as well.

It is such a great price too, only £7.99.

Bargain.

Check it out HERE.

Have you guys tried this palette or any of the other Chocolate Palettes?

Beauty Wishlist for Spring 2016

Uncategorized

img_1053-3

As most of you know, Spring is upon us and I have been on the hunt for some beauty essentials.

I have created a wishlist of some of the items that I am CRAVING right now. I’ve seen so many wishlists that you guys have created and thought I would join the club and show you what I need would love!

Lets get Started…

Benefit Hoola Zero Tanlines

So this little beauty is brand new and looks heavenly. I have used Hoola bronzer for years now and I have been waiting for Benefit to bring out a self tan. It comes with a little body sponge which you blend in the product in to your skin, so that means no more orange hands! It comes at a price of £19.50, so quite pricey for a tan but Hey! Its Benefit and I bet its INCREDIBLE!

Rosie for Autograph by Marks and Spencers

Miracle Concealer

I love Rosie Huntington Whiteley. She is such a role model, not to mention absolutely flawless and a natural beauty. Her range of makeup is stunning and the range is amazing. This concealer is lightweight and leaves the skin with a luminous glow. Ideal for Spring/Summer, and also covering up those blemishes seamlessly! It’s £14 and comes in two shades, I always go for a lighter shade because im so pale!

Rosie Huntington Whiteley by Marks and Spencers

Liquid Eyeliner

Oh my.

Another Rosie product of course. I have always wanted an eyeliner like this. It has a super fine felt tip and it says its smudge proof…. SMUDGE PROOF! Did you hear that?!! Im a big liquid eyeliner fan and this type is my fave, I find it alot easier to use when its in a pen form. Its a reasonable £14, so I definitely plan to get this ASAP.

Lipstick

Rose Gold. Rose Gold. Rose Gold. Rose Gold.

Heaven! Anything Rose Gold and I fall in love. Rosie’s range of lipsticks just make me smile so much. They come in so many different shades but the one that stood out for me was this delicate shade called CAMISOLE BLUSH. Its so pretty and girly and I need it in my life. Again, the price for this is £14 so not bad!

CLICK HERE FOR THE PRODUCT

H&M Beauty Powder Blush

If you haven’t checked out the new H&M beauty section, then you need to. I walked in the new H&M in Cardiff and was in awe at the professional looking range. It all looks so high end, but what caught my eye was the blushes. This shade is called GOLDEN PEACH and looks such a warm and rosy colour, perfect for even without bronzer. Its only £6.99 and I know I will be getting this the next time im shopping!

CLICK HERE FOR THE PRODUCT

Charlotte Tilbury Highligter

I have never owned any Charlotte Tilbury makeup, but I think I need to. Highlighters are my favourite makeup product. They can change and define the face shape so much whilst adding such dimension and healthy glow. The packaging on this looks divine, and just imagine a gold highlighter for summer. You’d be shining like a diamond. It is rather pricey at £32 but I have never seen anything so perfect.

CLICK HERE FOR THE PRODUCT

And that is it.

I really want to stick with this wishlist, no matter how long it takes! So look out for the review posts on all of these products when I purchase them!
