Too Faced Sweethearts Blush in Peach Beach

When I picked up the Chocolate Bar Palette I also bought this, I just couldn't resist. What first caught my eye was the super cute packaging and when I saw how beautiful the colours were I was sold! 
I believe there are 3 colours to choose from, there is the original one Candy Glow and more recently they came out with 2 more shades Something About Berry and Peach Beach the one I have.
Peach Beach is beautiful, you can use the shades separately or just swirl your brush and mix them together like I do, it just gives you the most beautiful glow, I just love the pinky-peach bronzey colour that gives. 
Since I bought it, I couple weeks ago, I have been using this non stop! So happy I bought it! 
I guess I´m having a Too Faced Love Affair at the moment! ;)

Too Faced Chocolate Bar

A few months ago when I saw pictures of this palette I knew it had to be mine! Too bad I had to wait 6 weeks for it to arrived, since when it came out it was instantly sold out. I have had this palette for a couple weeks now and I Love It! It has a gorgeous selection of shades ( 6 mattes and the rest are all shimmers), I don´t get want the pink shade is doing there, I would much prefer a medium bronzey/brown that I think is missing for all over the lid something along the line like romp or even soba by mac, that´s my only complain. I love all the matte brown shades and their different undertones, they are so good, as for the shimmers they are also amazing. 
So far I have been sticking to the browns, bronze and gold, but I need to try the amazing purpley/violet shades. 
The pigmentation is great, there is a little bit of fallout, but nothing too bad.
I have a few shades on the go but the ones I have been using the most are:
Milk chocolate (or salted caramel) all over the lid, HazelNut patted on top,Cherry Cordial on the outer v and crème brulee as a inner corner highlight.

I have been using this palette non stop, definitely worth the wait.  So is this my perfect palette? I have I found my neutral palette sole mate? I don´t know but is pretty close to it!

PS: I can´t believe I almost forgot to say they smell like chocolate. YUM!

Kiko Boulevard Rock Collection Part 2

Cream Eyeshadows in 103 and 104

A couple posts ago I mentioned this collection and I said I still wanted to pick up the Face Skin Glow and I did, I already used it a couple times and I love it, it adds a healthy glow without looking shimmery it also has spf 10 which is great.
I also picked up the Long Lasting Cream Eyeshadow in 103 Alternative Brown which is great for a super quick and easy smokey eye, it is a very dark brown and 104 Snappy Brass, a peachy golden super shimmery colour that is going to be great for summer.

Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base

Primers some people love them and can´t do their makeup without them and others just can´t be bothered. I have to say that I fall into the second category but I´m only talking about face primers because when it comes to eyeshadow primers I always use them simply because I have very oily eyelids ( Sexy ha?) and if I don´t use a primer most of the time my eyeshadow will either crease or  won´t last very long. So it´s when the Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base- (£19.50) comes in, my eyeshadows never crease and last a very long time. I have tried a few eyeshadow primers but I can honesty say this is the best one I ever tried and is one my Holy Grail products. I know is not the cheapest but to me is definitely worth it, so if you have oily eyelids and your eyeshadow isn´t lasting very long give this a try.

Feel Unique Haul

This week finally arrived this order from Feel Unique, it was about time! Since I ordered it almost 2 months ago! First they lost my order and I had to wait 35 days to report it and then 2 more weeks for the new one to arrived, needless to say I was very disappointed with their services! Normally within a week my order has arrived. But now onto the good part: what I bought! I bought 2 things from The Balm, I love their products and I love the packing because is so vintage inspired and I also bought 2 things from Rimmel.

- The Balm Frat Boy Blush- I have used it twice now and I have I have to say I LOVE IT! It is this pinky peach colour that looks so beautiful on.

- The Balm Betty-Lou Manizer- I already have Mary-Lou Manizer and I Love it and this one was no different, is this gorgeous bronzy Highlighter, I think is going to be great for summer, but I already wore it and I love it.

- Rimmel Lasting Finish Colour Rush Intense Colour Balm in Give me a Cuddle and Rumour Has It.
I love both colours I have been wearing Give me a Cuddle which is a baby pink shade and Rumour Has It is more of a fuchsia berry shade.

The Budget Buy- Lush Skincare

Brazed Honey Fresh Face Mask
Catastrophe Cosmetics Fresh Face Mask

When I first started taking my skincare seriously, I wanted to try different products to see what suited me best, that´s when I came across Lush, I had been hearing about it for a while so I decided to try it.
Since I don´t have a Lush near me anymore I have to order it online and then had I found products that were really working for me so I stopped using it for a while but last month when I went to Paris I saw a Lush store and I just had to go in and pick up some of my favourites. I bought a cleanser and a toner I wanted to buy the face masks but since you have to keep them in the fridge that wasn´t an option since a few days later I was flying back home.

- Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser- I love this cleanser, I think I must have bought 3 tubs of this. It is very gentle but also gently exfoliates and leaves the skin feeling cleansed, smooth and nourished. I love to use this on bad skin days because it helps to calm my skin.

- Tea Tree Toner- This was the first time I used and I have to say I really like it. I think it´s great for people who struggle with bad skin, acne, because tea tree is anti-bacterial so it can help to keep away the bacteria than can cause spots. It is also antiseptic and helps to keep skin clean and clear.

- Brazed Honey Fresh Face Mask- This mask is great when your skin is looking dull and tired, it just brightens,nourishes and exfoliate the skin. I just love it and really miss using it.

- Catastrophe Cosmetic Fresh Face Mask- This mask is great for when you are breaking out or are having a bad skin day the mask will help to calm down the skin. This was my saviour when my skin wasnt´t looking it´s best. I love it and again I really miss it! I might have to order them again.

Both masks I bought countless times, so definitely recommend it.

I really love Lush and for budget skincare I think it´s one of the best.

Do you like Lush? Have you used any of the products that I mention? Or do you have any recommendations? Let me know in the comments.
