OMG DSQUARED2 for m.a.c?! why didnt somebody tell me before? lol
I actually loveee Dsquared2, theyre S/S collection is amazing and eye-catching, its
inspired by the young fashionistas of today, models were strutting down the catwalk
with starbucks cups etc..and the colour was AMAZING!

So im really excited to get my hands on some of their M.A.C line, the contouring powder looks pretty good!

Ahh if only i was rich i'd get all of it lol

Vaseline Coca-butter Review

I wanted to do a review on this coca butter becuase ive had a love-hate relationship with it!
When i first tried it i thought i wasted my money to be honest because, its very thick, creamy-oil like liquid, and it says to apply after your shower, so id would have a shower then dry and then put it on, but that made me feel totally greasy and oily.
I used to end up trying to wipe it off because i didnt like how it felt.
However!
Next i tried applying it when still soaking wet from the shower lol, and then towel-dry, and it did work this time, the only drawback might be that youre getting vaseline oil stuff on your towel but i can promise that it leaves your skin feeling AMAZINGLY soft,
And it pretty much lasts all day!

Conclusion

When used the right way its a really quick and easy substitute to using body cream after a shower/bath and a + it smells AMAZING!

Revlon Colourstay vs. Bobbi Brown Skin foundation

Hey guys i thought after my Foundation video i'd do a vs. between my current foundation
and my new Revlon Colourstay foundation which ive heard ALOT about!

So below is a photo of swatches of the two foundations


As you can see, the bobbi brown foundation is alot more yellow in tone than the Revlon,
It looks alot more brown, it has more of a red tone.

I put the two foundations on either side of my face
(bear in mind the lighting was a little brighter on the right side aswell)


The revlon is a bit clearer to see because of the lighting but you can see that the
Revlon actually dosent look to red/dark on the skin and it gives quite an even coverage.

The break down

The Bobbi Brown foundation is excellent, the only thing is, because it is very water-based, you have to layer it up to get better coverage, I think it is more useful as a summer-time foundation when you dont want the Foundation to be too thick,
I will use the Revlon Colourstay as my Autumn/Winter foundation because the coverage is better in one application and it does stay on all day, i dont really need to touch it up.

Conclusion

I actually recommend both foundations, however if you are needing a good foundation for this winter i recommend Revlon Colourstay, it would also be good for nights out because it stays put in most conditions

Let me know!

Have you tried either of these?
Know of any other brilliant foundations?
What do you think?

AlexiaChung is chic


Today i thought id express my love of Alexa chungs style,
she dresses effortlessly chic, so simple but stylish,
Im glad shes being recognized as a style icon because shes dressed
great for years and now its showing.

Some things she wears i dont think i could pull off but shes
definatly one to take tips from.

My fave outfit here is the one on the right
I want a jacket like that!

Rihanna @ Fashion Week

mmm i got a bar of 'divine' dark chocolate in my Marie-Claire magazine ^_^

anywho so ive been looking at style.com and who made this autumns fashion week,
Rihanna popped up a few times so i thought i'd share what i thought of what she wore;

This was rihanna's take on the underwear-as-outerwear trend this year, i dont think this outfit as a whole though is very successful =\

I do like thigh-high boots though.


Here she is at the Gaultier show, she reminds me of spiderwoman...if there was a spiderwoman, i always like black but i think this is a little scary, the hair is better than in the picture before though.

So overall i didnt realy like what she wore at the fashion shows this autumn, [uve probably seen her in the black sheer striped dress]

Id never personally wear anything that she dressed in but then she probably dressed this way to make a statement.

I've loved RhiRhi for ages but i think i need to move on to someone else as fashion inspriation.
