MAC Nail Varnish- Screening Room (LE)

I have been buying from MAC for around ten years now, and have considered buying their nail varnishes before but somehow never quite got round to it. As you may know, I had a little shopping trip yesterday and ended up in Harvey Nichols as I had a £5 voucher off ESPA products which I got when I purchased my SpaFresh Toner. However as always, the MAC counter exerted it's unnatural force over me and I ended up there first. Speaking to the MUA I found out that there is going to be a full permanent collection of nail varnishes coming out very soon which we both got rather excited about! As I'm trying to be good and not spend much, I just bought a nail varnish from the Reel Sexy collection.

Let me introduce you to Screening Room:
I am always drawn to teal or turquoise colours, they remind me of the sea! I somehow don't have any nail varnishes in this specific colour, and I know how highly pigmented MAC's eyeshadows and lippies are so had great faith in this being good quality too. The Hey Sailor! Collection has a white nail varnish that I was tempted by for nail art but then I thought surely I'll be able to find a cheaper dupe somewhere (these are £9.00 each)
That's our park in the background, what a horrible day! This is a very creamy nail varnish, it only takes two coats to be fully ready to go but you could get away with one. It dries so quickly, I would say under two minutes to be completely dry and has a really glossy rich finish. It really is fabulous quality. On day two and no tip wear so far.
Please excuse the shabby application, but look how SHINY it is! There was only one small gripe, the brush is a little stiff at first so all my first coats were quite patchy if I pressed the brush a little harder than usual and then had to fill in the gaps. Saying that, when you top up some varnishes there is a visible overlap whereas this just melt into the varnish already there.
I like the fact that the colour in the bottle matches the dried colour on the nails also, and if anything the polish is MORE shiny than the liquid version. Very happy with this. Also like the matt lid of the bottle, is there anything MAC can get wrong?

10/10 and would recommend you ladies get your mitts on one of these soon!

FOTD- Everyday shopping look

So yesterday I had a day off and was meant to be going to meet one of my best buds but she had a bit of a family emergency so we had to call it off (poor thing :() but I had to go into town anyway so I thought I may as well make a day of it. I don't like girls who wander round town in heels and hair extensions, but it's nice to feel a bit more done up than normal isn't it? This is my everyday makeup with lashes thrown in and a bolder lip:
Hello nose!!! Lol gotta love our imperfections eh? So for this look, I used:

  • The Porefessional by Benefit
  • Loreal Nude Magique BB Cream
  • Mac Mineralize Blush in Dainty
  • Benefit "They're Real" Mascara
  • Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Eyeshadow in Velvet Plum
  • Mac Shroom eyeshadow
  • Mac Trax eyeshadow
  • Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink
  • The Vintage Cosmetics Company Fake Eyelashes in Gracie
  • Mac Satin Lipstick in Rebel.
  • Brown infill powder (not sure where it's from)
Generally unless I have loads of spots, I like to keep my makeup light and opt for a light foundation or BB cream rather than a full coverage. I like to prime if I know I'm going to be out or working all day so my makeup doesn't shift, and the Porefessional is good for this. A bit of blush to warm up the cheeks (this blush actually doesn't photograph as bright as it is on). 

Then onto the eyes. I wanted a neutral eye as I was going for a bold lip, and this is my go-to eyeshadow. I love the formulation of the Bobbi Brown long-wear cream eyeshadow and really want another one, if only they weren't so expensive! As you can see my eyes are very deep set so I like to put a slightly shimmery/pearlescent shade on to open up my eyes, or for nights out loads of eyeliner to accentuate the almond shape. I have such tiny lids that most eyeshadow seems to vanish!!
It's more of a browny gold colour, which goes well with shroom which is a great highlighter colour for under your brow.  The glitter is obvious in real in life and I have had a lot of people comment on it. I love this eyeshadow it's so easy to chuck on day to day and blends well but does dry quickly. The lashes are the ones I got with my SheSaid beauty box last month and I love them! I use the eyeliner to blend the lashes in as my lash glue dries black so it covers any messy bits when my eyes are open.
I wore this floaty blouse with jeans, little ballet pumps and a tweed jacket with elbow patches, and used my hair donut to put my hair up in a more-or-less perfect bun. If you're busy, or if it's raining and you don't want to risk an afro, I always think putting your hair up is a nice alternative. This hair donut is a foam ring to help you create a nice bun, it came from Primark and was only a pound! I love it, it takes less than 5 mins, a foam ring and a bunch of kirby grips.
So that's my first face of the day post, let me know what you think and if you would like to see any more of these! xxx

Hop along

If you're a fairly new blogger, a blog hop is a great way to get your blog discovered, I have taken part in Blog Love Therapy's Blog Hop and it's great! Just click here and look for the form to add your blog to get involved.
There are a couple of rules, such as visiting some of the other blogs that are participating (it wouldn't be fair otherwise) but it's a great way to get your name out there :P

Montagne Jeunesse Face Mask Haul

I love shopping for beauty products in the supermarket as they usually have some pretty good deals on and it's nice to get a little treat with your food shopping! I have been using Montagne Jeunesse masks for years, they are so affordable and you can have the feeling of a facial in your own home. So when I was in Asda the other day (massive supermarket like Walmart for my American friends), they had these all on a roll-back price of 75p and I was over the moon and picked up a couple. The first ones I got were the white chocolate mask and the passion peel-off masks. I loved them so much I went back for more!
I couldn't find my passion peel-off one again but the white chocolate one, I LOVE white chocolate so snapped it up in a heartbeat. I kind of went for three pairs of masks, let's take a little look!
Let's get fruity!!! I love fruity scents, especially Raspberry, so this first fruit smoothie with Mango and Raspberry and Mango. If you haven't used any of these masks before they are really highly scented so if you don't like strong smelling things avoid them. If you do, like me, it's lovely to sit in a sweet or fruity smelling cloud letting them work their magic! I haven't tried one I haven't liked yet, which is more than I can say for more expensive face masks (Lush I'm looking at you). Also can you beat Strawberry and Whipped Cream in any situation (not THAT kind of situation for those with dirty minds)? It's the perfect combo. I've not tried a souffle one of these before that I remember, I'm hoping it's lighter and maybe frothy.
I class these two as the life-savers! They are mud packs to sort out blemishes and oiliness, which I am very prone to. Generally before any big night out or time I might want to look my best, up will pop the godzilla of all spots which will refuse to leave my face without a fight. That's when you need to crack out the big guns, and these are in this category. I've used the one on the left before and I can honestly say it does work. I put it on at night, washed it off after 15 mins then in the morning my skin was visibly clearer.
Chocoholic, moi? Never! Actually I'm more of a savoury person than a sweet one, but I make the exception for goodies like these. As I mentioned before, this is the second time I have bought the White Chocolate one, it smells AMAZING <3 like white chocolate buttons, and I want to eat it! It also leaves your skin feeling so soft, but I'm just in love with the smell to be honest! I actually have the Hot Chocolate mask on right now and had to open the door for the postman. I actually called through the door before I opened it "I have a face mask on so don't get a fright!" HAHA! He didn't look remotely bothered when he saw me even though I look like I'm trying to make some kind of a racist statement by blacking up, and just said "Ah it happens all the time". I'd love to be a postman you must see some sights! Ah well. It's one of those self-heating masks which I really like, even if it does nothing for your skin, it feels like it is and it also smells delish. For the record, I am not racist!! Lol but I do look ridiculous with a dark brown face, regardless of how jealous I am of some of my dusky friends' skin tones I cannot pull it off!! Back to albino for me :(

So, ladies, get yourself down to ASDA or onto their website and get your very own home spa treat! Over and out xxx

First ever Glossybox!

If you read my blog regularly, you may know I have been getting the SheSaid Beauty Box, and was considering trying some others. Well, Top Cashback had a great offer for £7.00 back for a single Glossybox to try, so I figured what the heck that's a bargain! I thought I would get next month's box but ended up getting this month's anniversary edition which is great.

These boxes are just so pretty aren't they? I love the ribbon and the printed tissue paper, so cute. I'd seen a few reviews of this box online and was a wee bit disappointed I didn't get any of the fake lashes as I love falsies! So here's what I got:
I got the Glossybox mirror and the balloon which was a nice touch for the anniversary edition. I got two perfume samples from Lolita Lempicka, a couple of Face masks, Osmo hair treatment, Noble Isle shower gel and HD Brows Grow Baby Grow! Quite a nice little stash eh?

I think this is my favourite product, it seems as though this new company is going to be a competitor for Molton Brown, Jo Malone and the likes. It smells absolutely divine, the packaging is so well made, and feels luxurious. I just had a little look on their website and the whole range looks fab. I cannot wait to use this.
Next favourite is the HD Brows Grow Baby Grow, it is a serum meant to boost eyebrow growth for those who have over plucked their brows. Whilst I don't have that problem thicker eyebrows are easier to style so I will be giving this a try and will tell you the results! This stuff is £29.99 so was a great product to get in this box.
I have been wanting to try a hair oil for a little while now, but current finances have forced me to pick what I REALLY want first. Needless to say, I was delighted to see this in my box, I have used a couple of Osmo products before in the past and always been happy with them so this is going to be good hopefully. Looking forward to silky-smooth locks!
Now, I haven't done a post on face masks yet, but I love them and have even been known to pin down Richard and smother the leftovers on him while he pretends to hate it. Then catch him admiring his smooth skin the next day, busted! I'm a bit funny with honey fragrances but after a little research this company seem to have a bit of a following so I have high hopes for this. I might review it seperately with it on, such a good look huh?
Lastly, we got some pretty perfume samples, the packaging is so feminine and I love the swirly writing! It's always good to try before you by, and I like having samples to chuck in my handbag rather than carting about a full size perfume. I have the L'Eau en Blanc on currently, I like it once it has settled on my skin, probably because it has rasperry in it! When it first went on the violet scent reminded me a bit of Parma Violets (they are little purple sweets that smell flowery, for my international readers) and I detest those, but it does smell nice after that dies away.

For my first ever Glossybox I am very impressed! The fact I got one product worth nearly £30 would have been worth it in itself, but I also happen to really like and use all the other type of products also.

Happy Birthday Glossybox! Thanks for keeping me glossy :)

May Empties so Far!

I've placed myself on a bit of a ban for buying day to day cosmetics, as I have boxes full of shower gels and cleansers that I need to use up. My problem is seeing deals in store and thinking ah I'll use it at some point, then before I know it I have five shower creams on the go at once! I've actually managed to use up all of these products so far this month and am trying to work my way through some more.

1. Dove Go Fresh Shower Cream. Oh my lord I love the smell of this, I saw it on a deal yesterday for the big one and was sooo tempted to replace this but managed to refrain. It smells like nectarines, and is amazing for summer fruitiness. I may need to get some for my summer holiday!

2. Garnier Eye Makeup Remover. My eyes are super sensitive so I can't use a lot of eye makeup removers, but this one is soft and gentle so I stock up whenever I can.

3. Fake Bake Original. This is the first time I've ever tried Fake Bake, being a St Moritz devotee! I saw this on BuyaPowa and thought I'd give it a shot for once. I love the colour it gives me and have had lots of compliments on my tan. It looks a bit scary on, like you've painted yourself with fence paint, but once it washes off it looks gorgeous and is streak free. The only slight problem I have with this is that it doesn't dry fully so I find my self standing around starkers or trying to perch on our brown couch not touching anything, praying the postman doesn't come! I still would recommend this though and may keep an eye out for future deals.

4. Kleenex Facial Cloths "cotton touch". These are a great alternative to cotton pads for taking your makeup off. For the eagle-eyed amongst you, yes the box above is not empty, I binned the empty one yesterday (oops) so this is my next box. I love the clean looking packaging and it makes getting the cloths out really easily. These are fab for using different sections for eyes, cleansing then toning and the cloths are pretty big and very absorbent. They're not great for nail varnish removal though. You can still get them half price loads of places.

5. Kudos nourishing shampoo. This was a free shampoo from our hotel in Manchester and I loved it so much I brought it back with me! I've since searched online and you can only buy them in bulk boo! I loved this as it has a gorgeous smell and a crazy jelly-like consistency.

6. Dove Hair Therapy Nourishing Oil Care. I got sent this to try out, and I loved it so much I ended up buying the full size product. It smells fruity and nutritious and has a shiny gold ribbon running through the conditioner. This leaves your hair so soft and feels nourished all through.

7. Prince shaving cream. I haven't mentioned Lush on my blog before, but I have been devoted to Lush for about 12 years now! I bought Richard a mens gift box and this was in it, but he decided to grow stubble and trim it so this came to me, and I'm glad it did. It's a bit of a pain scooping it out of the pot with your fingers, but the end result is worth it. It smells of oranges and lots of aromatherapy oils and leaves your legs silky!!

So that's it for now ladies, I think I'm getting there slowly!!

Models Own Indian Ocean and Lilac Dream

When I was away in Manchester I picked up my first Models Own varnishes, Lilac Dream and the famous Indian Ocean from the Beetlejuice range. I really only wanted Indian Ocean but they were two for £8.00 so I had to get two, obviously! I've seen on loads of blogs that Indian Ocean looks amazing layered over a matt shade so thought I'd give them a whirl together!
Indian Ocean
Lilac Dream
As you can probably see, Indian Ocean is a gorgeous shimmering, pearlescent shade with blue, violet and turquoise hints throughout. It is a sheer but highly pigmented colour which I love. The Lilac Dream shade is a bit more bland, a purple cream shade perfect for the pastel trend this season. I thought layering the shimmer over the purple would pick out the purple shades in the Beetlejuice shade, and I think it turned out very pretty!
This is a nice day-to-day look that is feminine and sweet but not over the top. I'm sorry my camera isn't great and doesn't capture the full complexity of the Indian Ocean colour, but it reminds me of petrol how it changes in the light as you move your hands side to side. I must have looked like a weirdo staring at my nails in different lights but I couldn't help it!
If you don't have any Models Own polishes, I would really recommend them, I have to be honest and say the packaging feels and looks a little on the cheap side, but the product is very well formulated and creamy. I used the lilac shade for my nail marbling post and it worked just as well as the OPI polishes, so for the price difference I was very impressed. You can get Models Own from Boots or ASOS and they retail at £5.00.

9/10 and I will definitely sample more Models Own nail varnishes :)

MAC goodies!!

So you may have seen my Tuesday treats posts about the Debenhams sale and the sneaky order I placed for a couple of lipsticks. Well they arrived the morning after! How is that for service? I was so impressed. They also included a couple of samples, neither of which I was that fussed for but hey any free samples are great!
I need to take a minute, as I think my all-consuming obsession with makeup is getting to me, I nearly burst when I heard the package drop through the letterbox. Is this normal? I seriously hope not, or our world is full of women distracted by pretty colours and other people's nails...Anyway onto the GOODIES!!
Ladies, I present to you Rebel and Impassioned. *Cue dramatic music* Aren't they pretty? I am so chuffed I ordered them now, they are such gorgeous colours. Rebel is my first satin finish MAC lipstick and I really enjoy the consistency. Here's a little swatch of both of them on my arm:
Impassioned (L), Rebel (R)
I got a bit overexcited with my Impassioned swatch didn't I? Now I have them, I think they are definitely night-time shades which I will have to play around with. They are both so highly pigmented, bold colours, I would be straying into drag queen territory if I wore them with a dark eye I think. I also reckon a little tan or bronzer will be necessary to avoid Addams family comparisons. I'm ready for my close-up...
 Pinky pout! It's such a rich pink, both classy and bold at the same time. LOVE.
This colour just cannot be ignored. I actually feel more sexy with it on! Even with the spots that have suddenly sprung up on my face over the past week (naughty skin) I still feel like Dita Von Teese or a pinup girl. Might wear this everywhere just because I can. I can totally rock this in Asda...
10/10 and these are both fabulous

Question Wednesday!

I really like these kind of posts but not done one yet so when I saw it on Nykki's mane blog I thought why not?
If you want to take part click here!

Ok so on to the questions!

1. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be?
Japan, I love everything about Japanese culture, as you might guess by my blog name. A girl I went to school with lives there and I pretty much stalk her Facebook pics (not in a creepy way I might add) 
2. Where is the coolest/best place you have ever traveled?
I went on a trip to Italy when I was younger where we did Rome and Sorrento, and visited the Catacombs, Pompeii, Herculaneum and even climbed Vesuvius! I would love to go back. We also went to Florida this year, which you can't beat. DISNEYLAND!!
3. How do you feel about road trips?
They're okay if you have someone to share the driving with, but unfortunately both Richard and many of my friends don't drive, so I'd end up being the responsible one. Which annuls the point of a road trip. I'd love to drive across America though.
4. You just won two tickets to your dream vacation, who's going with you?
My cat. Only kidding, I'd take Richard (sigh). You can't go drinking with your cat.
5. Airport security is only allowing you to take 3 make-up items with you, what are they?
My Bobbi Brown foundation, Revlon Lip Butter, YSL Faux Cils Mascara

Tuesday's Treats!

Today I'm loving...Debenhams 10% off all beauty including MAC and Bobbi Brown! If you go through Quidco cashback site you can get 5% more off at the checkout and 5% cashback too! Really, it would be rude not to! Also FREE shipping. So with all these little nudges, I have been scouring their site, I was planing on branching out and getting some Too Faced or Bare Minerals for the first time, but ended up back at the MAC page, drooling over all the lipsticks I had seen at the counter in Selfridges.

Not exactly being a wallflower, I hesitated over all the gorgeous nudes and daytime colours like Angel, Hue and Creme de Nude. Then ignored them and headed straight to the bright colours I knew I would end up with anyway. What a little peacock I am! So...I sortof ended up getting two shades, Rebel and Impassioned! I don't own any purpley shades and wasn't quite brave enough to go for a dark purple so ended up with Rebel. I have stolen these pictures through google and will do a full review once they both arrive, but these will give you a good idea.

Mac Rebel
Mac Impassioned
As far as unnecessary purchases go, this is right up there. But I cannot wait for them to arrive! After losing my MAC Viva Glam Nicki after only three days use, I was desperate to fill the void and I think these will do just that. Have you had any Tuesday Treats? xxx

My Desert Island Foundation (possibly HG): Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation

As you can probably guess from the title, I am a bit obsessed with this product. Ever since I went to the Bobbi Brown counter in Jenners (a department store in Edinburgh) and got made over, I have wanted it! The lovely girl even gave me a little pot with some to take away and try myself. I love it when companies do that, as I have really sensitive skin and need to see if I react. Also I don't want to pay over £20 for a foundation and then hate it!

If you like a full coverage, then I'm afraid this isn't for you, ladies. This is a very light foundation, designed to make it look like you don't have makeup on, just perfect skin naturally (which is we all want, right?). It is surprisingly runny in consistency, I did not believe for a second it would cover my blemishes but it really does smooth right over them. Somehow I can still see my freckles through this, which looks natural, but my spots are barely visible. All I need to do is dab a dot of concealer on blemishes and I'm good to go!

Various stages of blending

All of Bobbi Brown's foundations are created so that you can build them up for a fuller coverage, I rarely do this but it certainly works when I do, without any cakey-ness or looking heavy. This retails for £29.00, I got mine at duty free in Dublin airport for 30 euros and I'm pretty happy with it for that price. No, it's not cheap. But when I think of all the £8-£10 foundations I've bought then thrown/given away because they weren't great, it makes more sense to get this. This is a photo of the foundation in action from my friend's birthday the other night (not very flattering but you get the idea)

I now want to try all the other foundations in the range, and really want the tinted moisturiser! Have you tried any of the other items? If so, what do you think?

10/10 and my eternal love for this foundation. Thanks, Bobbi!

Nail marbling- my first attempt!

So, recently I stumbled across some videos by Simple Little Pleasures (click here) showing you how to nail marble, and I thought "that looks so simple"! It's such a great creative process where you layer nail varnishes onto the surface of water, swirl it into whatever design you want then dunk your finger into the layer of drying varnish to coat each nail. Sounds easy, right? WRONG. Not if you're me anyway. I can't show you the full finished article as the rest of my fingers still look like I've been painting the walls, but this gives you an idea of the desired effect.
This is not nearly as neat as some as I've seen online, but for a first timer, I think I did ok?! Ok so this is what you need:
An orange stick (manicure stick), a glass or cup you don't mind getting messy, sellotape to protect your fingers around the nail, whichever colours you want to marble. You need to first fill the cup or glass almost to the top with room temperature water. Bottled or filtered water works best to hold the varnish as it has no impurities. Then you carefully drop a single drop of the first colour onto the surface of the water. Now this is the magic bit, the varnish disperses outwards, creating a ring. You next need to put a drop of the next varnish into the centre and let it do the same thing. Keep going, alternating the colours until you have a bullseye effect. Then you take your orange stick and drag it lightly through the nail varnish to either pull through the rings, or just swirl around to create...erm, swirls, which is what I did. Then you position your finger (nail side down) over the pattern you want to capture and literally push your nail into the nail varnish film, dunking it under the water and clearing up the excess with the orange stick.This is the aftermath (this is the second piece of tissue as I covered the first one entirely!).
For the first attempt, I tried using ELF nail varnishes and for some reason they would not spread out like the others did so I would not advise using those! These are the shades I ended up using, and I had a base coat on which was a basic french manicure shade.
You can see just some of my collection in the background, but these are Nails Inc OMP! for Fabulous Magazine, OPI "Houston We Have a Purple", OPI "From A to Z-Urich", 17 "Twighlight Teaser" and Models Own "Lilac Dream". I quite like the idea of not quite matching shades coming together for marbling as it seems to be nicer on the nail. The OPI shades and the Models Own shades seemed to work the best for this nail art as their formulation is nice and creamy but not drying, whereas I found the 17 nail varnish started to dry too quickly, became gloopy and hard to work with. Here's another pic of a fairly neat nail to give you another wee look:
I have to be honest, between taping round your nails to keep the varnish off them, scooping out extra varnish with the stick, and accidentally covering my fingers in varnish, it was a complete faff. But I really quite like the design and feel like I've achieved something!! Have you ever tried to do this, and if so is there something I can do to make it easier? Much love xx

Hop to it!

Back to reality!

How rubbish is coming back from holiday?? We were only away four days but it felt like so much longer which was lovely :) I was in Manchester with my boyfriend Richard, we went to see Jerry Seinfeld one night and Paul Merton the next so made it into a little trip. I've only been to Manchester for work before so it was really nice to go for pleasure and we got amazing weather, it was sunny 80% of the time, if a little windy, I even had to go buy flip flops as I had "cleverly" packed light and just taken Uggs for the day time! Much delicious food was consumed and a *ahem* few cocktails also. Mangotini anyone??

Richard is good at researching places before we visit, so we went to Mr Toms Victorian Chophouse for food, The Room and the Alchemist for cocktails and a couple of other nice little places like Jack Spratt's for lunch. We also discovered Barburrito which is the most amazing chilled-out Mexican food, come to Edinburgh Barburrito!! Here's a gratuitous pic of the two of us in the Alchemist with our test-tubey shots. Everything is done like a chemistry experiment and one of my cocktails was wood-smoked with a bunsen burner in front of me!
Obviously, there are loads of shops and shopping centres in Manchester, so I managed to sneak in some purchases, including the much longed-for Indian Ocean by Models Own woohoo! The Harvey Nichols in Manchester was a little disappointing compared to ours in Edinburgh, but the Selfridges is AMAZING! Richard had to leave me alone at the MAC dept, chatting away to the MUA as I tend to get a little engrossed haha. But anyway, we did experience some culture at the war museum, which was amazing but sad and thought provoking (understandably). We both turned into quivering wrecks when we decided to visit the viewing platform as the lift was very shaky and seemed like it was going to drop at any minute! Here is me looking small in a big cartoon room and Richard trying to look manly next to a tank LOL.
Enough culture, onto the haul! I was pretty restrained actually for me, only one Mac purchase which was good (sort of). So we have two candles which smelled yummy, Morange Mac Lipstick, Models Own Lilac Dream and Indian Ocean, pretty good huh? 
Ooh pretty things! I also got a couple of Primark items, but nothing else really jumped out at me, which is typical but good for my bank balance. I wore the Mac lipstick in our night out so see the top pics, but here are a couple of close-ups for a better idea. Now I don't need to tell you how good Mac lipsticks are, how creamy they are and how nice they smell, but I can tell you this is such a gorgeous yet wearable colour!! If you want to get brave and branch out, I seriously recommend this shade.
Well, that's my wee update sorry for being quiet while I've been away and this very pic-heavy post!! Glad to be home safe and sound but can't wait to go away again! Are any of you away on a city break soon? xx
