Theres a palette in the post! (lol)

Hey Dolls, yesterday i got a package in the post (super excited!) from Hong kong hehe..so i opened it aaand it was my Manly 120 Palette that i ordered about a week ago.

I've never had a palette with more then about 8 colours so i was soo excited lol
I saw this palette reviewed by Fafinette and Heather123 so i thought it might be quite good because they seem to know whats good =]

It arrived in a soft brown package envelope and was wrapped in bubble wrap, so when i got it out of all of that i saw i had a brown pouch and a lovely shiny palette lol, the pouch consists of 7 brushes which are all quite soft and cute..a good travel size.

Finally I opened the palette and was amazed by all the colours, theyre lovelyy!! I was expecting the eyeshadows to be a little but bigger actually but then i thought..if theyre packing in 120 colours, how big could they be lol

Oooooh also, no colours were cracked/damaged atall =]

The colours are very good quality, very pigmented and vibrant, im not usually a fan of any shimmer but when I tried the colours that have a sheer to them I was soo happy because they actually look gorgeous. (Especially the browns)

So i've done a few swatches, I obviously couldnt swatch all of them (well it would just take ages lol) but hopefully this gives you an idea.

Thank you for reading! ^_^

Remington Wet 2 Straight straighteners Review



Hey all =]
I was sent these Remington Straighteners the other day after being asked if i'd like to take part in giving feedback on the product which i said i'd love to be!
These straighteners are unique in the way that you can use them on wet or damp hair without needing to blow-dry.
This is great for people on the go..like me lol.

So ive taken quite a few photos so that you can see them from a few different angles and see what is included in the box.

How they look and feel
The straighteners are are dark purple colour and they have a rough kind of plastic feeling handle (well, covering most of them) Then there is a small part of smooth plastic near the plates.
The rougher plastic actually makes them better to handle and that plastic dosent heat up so they are uncomfortable to hold.
There is text and a screen on the top and then buttons on the side which are for the temperature, wet/dry hair and power.
They are also slightly curved and so fit nicely in your hand when using them.

How do they work?
When you switch them on they heat up straight away in about 15 seconds and the screen flashes showing the temperature they are currently at. The screen stops flashing when they reach about 200 degrees, you can adjust the temperature to whatever you'd like though.
[They go up to 230 Degrees]
You can also press the button which looks like a little cloud which switches to when the hair is wet so that the steam plates respond to the wet hair.

Did I notice a difference?
I did notice a difference, I washed my hair and then towel dried it a little, then i sprayed on some heat-protection spray and strightened my hair with the straighteners, They did take a little longer to work than my current GHD's do but not too much. When my hair was straightened i went outside (on my way to uni lol) and when i did look at my hair it looked ALOT shinier, i was impressed! My hair is very very curly so it isnt always the shiniest but it was after using these straighteners so this is a definate plus.

Would I recommend them?

I would recommend them yes =] If you are someone who is on the go alot and/or straightens your hair daily and know how much of a pain it is in the morning, then you would find these straighteners great!
It cuts out the whole blow-drying time because of the special plates these straighteners have and that personally for me is a miracle lol.
The only negative would maybe be that you have to take a little longer on one section of hair to get it straight, for me it took about two of three pulls with the tongs, but its still worth it, seeing as your not blow drying!

4 and a half Stars to Remington wet 2 straight straighteners!

Lush Vanishing Cream Review

Hey guys,
Tonight im gonna do a quick review on Lush's Vanishing cream (moisturiser)
This was given to me as a gift from my friend Jexie =] [www.vintagevanitidoll.blogspot.com] for my birthday and i was super excited when i got it cause i have a bit of a penchant for Lush lol

So she cream comes in the Lush screw-top tub so its obviously easy to open and so easy to apply, I have been cleansing, toning and then using the moisturiser morning and night.

After using the product for about a week, i have noticed that my skin does feel very soft and its Also a good base for make-up, as in its not oily atall (its made for oily skin) and it does not leave a shine.

The cream smells like lavender which is actually one of my favourite flower smells, its lovely, the smell isnt actually too strong, it just stays on the skin for a while and its not overpowering.

Conclusion

I recommend this product from lush, its great for people who have oily/combination skin and who may suffer from acne (it says) and it has a lovely consistency and fragrance.

Thumbs up!
