My Competition entry for Luxury Lust

Hey! This is my competition entry for

Fashionista514's Luxury Lust competition

The idea was to create a make-up look inspired by a designer brand
I looked through many bags, clothes and shoes and they didnt inspire me as much as some of the actual make-up that the designers have done on campaigns and catwalk shows and i came across the Dior 60's theme back in 2008.

This was amazing! I love the shapes and the colour! It was originally done by Pat McGrath who is amazing =]

This was the photo that inspired me


And here are my Photos:


I also wrote a little blurb but I E-mailed that to her =]

Hope you like! Let me know your thoughts

Loreal Double extend Review & FOTD

FOTD


Hi guys Im gonna give you my review of the Loreal mascara called 'double extend' which promises 80% more volume/length and it 'tubes' your lashes.

[I made a video recently of some of my fave products etc and i was going to put them up but i just feel im so bad a videos! Im gonna stick to writing for now.. =]

So i just brought this today, i was gonna get it before but it was quite pricey at £9.77 but today i just thought sod it and i got it =D

You firstly apply the white nourishing side, and even when i put the white on my lashes i noticed a difference in length, Then after while the white side is still wet you put the black lengthening and volumising mascara on.

The Result:

This product is amazing and it definatly does what it claims to do, i have recently tried 'false lash effect' from Maybelline and personally i thought it was crud but this one is amazing =] It makes my lashes look so long and especially when i curl them before or afterwards.
Ive yet to remove it lol because it is late but im lazy and usually take my make-up off last thing at night lol but it is supposed to just come off easily just by using warm water and cotton wool.

Id definatly buy this mascara again when it runs out, its quite happy stopped my search of 'the mascara that actually works' for now lol

Hope this has helped with anyone who's still looking for a good mascara!

Whats your favourite mascara?

Purple shimmer shadow

I tried out some colours from my Urban Decay Palette
The colours i used;

-Blunt
-Grifter
- Twice Baked
-Oil Slick
- Midnight Cowboy Rides Again


I think the key to wearing different colours is blending..which just comes with practice, I want to try some more matte shades thought because shimmery colours are usually worn only for nights out, If you have green eyes purple is a great colour because it makes them 'pop'

I winged out the black eyeliner I had on first [in the blog below], I added Oil slick (black shadow) to soften the line which blends into the brown and then I started building the purples.

I'll do more detailed eye make-up looks in the future, this is just my first one so still getting the hang of it.

FOTD & Haul

FOTD
I was going for a simple pin-up liner kind of look, nothing special!



Hello all! So today I got paid and I couldnt WAAIITTT to go and get some things i've wanted since forever (when i last had money) lol, So in the morning i went to the shop to get some skincare stuff ect, Heres what i got;


[I actually done a video blog for this but then i thought it was rubbish so ive written about it =]

- Naturalites Fake Lashes
- Simple face Brightening wipes
- Neautrogena Blackhead eliminating scrub
- Max Factor False lash effect (waterproof)

Ive tried the lashes before and theyre good but i just got them today because i ALWAYS lose them for some reason.

The Neutrogena scrub is loovelyy =] I tried it straight away lol, the beads are so small so it dosent feel like its rough on your face and it smells realy fresh

I got the 'false lash effect' mascara because I heard that its like the covergirl lashblast mascara which is supposed t be amazing, So i was reali exited to use it buutt on the first coat it didnt impress me atall, then i added two more coats and it does build up well but it made my lashes veryyy clumpy which i dont feel is a good look...ive decided i cant use plastic wand mascara's! they dont agree with me =[

I havent tried the Simple wipes yet but i know a few people who use them and recommend them so hopefully theyre good! I might write about them them after ive used them for a while.

This was just my first haul but there will be mannnyyy more...especially when i get my uni loan =D

Dior Stick


Thought I would share with you which lipstick i use currently, I dont have many lipsticks and i dont know why! i think when i was growing up someone said 'you cant use lipstick till you're a woman'..and it kinda stuck...untill i realised what aloada nonsence it was lol so i have a few from Rimmel and Barry M but when I went to New York i decided to get one that is better quality from a top kinda brand...
Woah life story lol sorri,
so i got this Dior Addict lipstick in quite a neutral colour because i didnt want to scare people with my lips at first...


Dior Addict - 629 ROSE DECOLLETE

(Sorry the picture actually sucks...its late and the lightings bad lol)

It had such a nice texture, it makes my lips soft and it lasts quite a while..if i was on a night out i'd have to re-apply through the night but its not as bad as some others ive tried.
I'd recommend Dior lipsticks, the actual lipstick is so pretty-looking aswell..part of why i wanted it lol

Just so you can see what it looks like on;


[This was taken last month..I have brown hair again now ^_^
and omg how pale do i look? *hides face*]


p.s Im realllyy sorry...i keep changing my blog name! But ive settled now and am happy lol, it wont change again! Thank you all again for following my blog! it makes me happy that people are interested in what i write about! It'll make me post more =D

I want to try video blogging aswell..ive opened a youtube account and i may try to show u guys things on there aswell, i'll share my tips and tricks!
Do you think i should video blog?

Plum Shlum

Im really enjoying blogging about beauty! Its always been my interest i just had no idea how many people do blog about it and its so inspiring =] Thank you everyone for following, im so appreciative!

This review is about the Benefit Bad Gal mascara in plum,

They say:
'Our rich, luxurious plum mascara intensifies your natural eye color while lushifying your lashes.'

I have used Benefit make-up for years, since my friend had the cutteestt blusher box, i was determined to know what it was and when i found the counters i had a bit of a turning point in my life lol anywho..
So i tried this mascara because i usually get the Bad Gal mascara in black because it gives amazing coverage and is long-lasting, Also because i have green eyes, the woman at the counter suggested this one especially to bring the colour out.
I tried it a couple times because when something doesnt work at first im like..ok..hopefully it will get better...but unfortunatly it didnt. It didnt make ANY difference atall, and after paying £13 i was a bit disappointed.
I didnt even notice the purple colour and switched quickly back to my old mascara..im yet to find another 'miracle' mascara! I want to try a Maybeline one next.

Does anyone know a good mascara which thickens and lengthens? If you do then please help lol

The last 24 hours

So my internet connection stopped working last night,
I was NOT amused!
ooo u might have noticed i've changed my page around a bit
I realy wanted xml layout with the links ^^^
I recommend them ^_^ I'll probably change it round a bit
still though...
Uhh i've got work tomorrow..i just got a job and i hate it already!
The problem with working in a womens retail store is that
everyone treats you like SHITT
which sucks...
Kinda confirms why i'm friends with more guys than girls..theyre so bitchyy.
Ooo ive been cooking alot recently, I love cooking, i find it realy therapeutic, whats a
good dish to cook? i wana improve!
Ive been constantly adding to my list of things I want when i get paid..i want a whole new batch of MAC make-up and i definatly want a black boyfriend Blazer and then funk it out with some
jewellery.
So just thought i'd write about whats been going on with me just recently,
I hope you guys like reading my blog..I want it to be like my main website page
because as much as I like myspace..it does get a bit boring..
I'll post again soon
