First Impressions: Tanya Burr Lips and Nails & Kate Moss Lip Products

Hello Hello Hello! 

The Postman has been my favourite person of all time today delivering lots of Lip products for me. SO today will be Post 1 of 2 with Tanya Burr’s Lipgloss range and Kate Moss’ Lipstick by Rimmel. So lets get down to business…

Tanya Burr Lipgloss Range.

So First impressions the lipgloss smells AMAZING!!! its like a familiar smell that i just can’t put my finger on. 

Well the Lipgloss I went for was the shade Champagne Toast. I love the name. I’m a massive Fan of Tanya and have heard the stories about the names so I know that a lot of thought has gone into each product.

The Lip gloss glides onto my lips perfectly. Not too tacky and not to wishy washy. The Gloss stays on your lips for quiet at while and I didn’t feel the urge to much to re-apply which was a bonus. 

Champagne Toast has a beautiful shimmer to it which I think is just the right amount of Shimmer. I’m not a massive wearer of Lipgloss I’ll be honest but this doesn’t feel Grainy nor does it feel to tacky. So with the ideal combination of glitter and gloss It’s ideal for me. 

Image

I Struggled when It came to choosing which shade as the range of colours was so varied but I went for This shade as it’s a peachy nude colour ideal for everyday use. We all know I’m the worst when it comes to Nudes so this again makes it the perfect lipgloss for me. 

You can only Buy Tanya Burr’s range online at the moment from Feel Unique but they will be hitting stores soon! 

You can buy it HERE and for £6.99 onwards. I think the price is THE perfect price to pay for a lipgloss if you ask me!

Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss.

This is the First Rimmel Lipstick I’ve ever purchased! The Jury is still out on this lipstick I’ll be honest so with that in mind. lets get down to it! 

When I got the box from Boots I wasn’t over excited with regards to packaging. I feel that it’s not very sturdy and feels and looks cheap. However for £3.99 you can’t complain really! 

Image

The Lipstick shade I’ve gone for is 113 another Nude colour. Surprise Surprise. The colour itself id lovely a really nice matte nude colour. What it says on the tin really.

Now when I applied the lipstick i was secretly hoping it would be a lovely thick texture. NO its wasn’t it was thin and lacked the lustre I was expecting. 

With regards to reapplying I felt that after 30-40 minutes of having it on I needed to apply again. To me it had the texture of a lip balm without the moisturising side. 

Overall the Lipstick was disappointing for me as I expected slightly more, However I paid £3.99 for this and considering all my lipsticks are £10 onwards £3.99 is very cheap. I will use this lipstick again but I will use it more of a lip balm rather than a lipstick. 

If you want to try this lipstick for yourself or any other colours in the range then you can buy it HERE. The price does go from £3.99 to £5.49 so hurry and get the offer. 🙂 

 

Thank you so much for reading this post. Please let me know if you have any other lip products to try. 🙂 

 

Come back tomorrow for the LimeCrime First impressions post.

So moving onto my other exciting news. Well a few things.

Firstly – I bought my first Lime Crime Lipsticks

Last but definitely not least I bought myself another camera to help me get better pictures for my blog and for trips out. So a Friend from School was selling the Canon 450D for £200 with lots of goodies with it so I was straight on it. So I picked it up this morning and I am so so happy snapping away in my room getting used to the camera.

First Impressions: Clinique Delivery

Hello Hello Hello! 

Image

So This evening I arrived home from work to find a cheeky delivery from Clinique. Now I’ve not bought from Clinique since foreverrrrr. So when I heard they have a new collection that is limited edition called ’16 Shades of Beige’ I knew that I needed to try it because you just can’t have enough beige/nude/brown eye shadow right?!  Then when I spotted they do a mascara just for the bottom lashes it’s compulsory to buy that as well right?!?!  

Firstly how amazing is the packaging. I didn’t select the option for gift wrap so I’m not sure if this is normal for the packaging but it’s so so cute. I will definitely be keeping the box for storage. 

 

Image

 

From Left to Right; Sugar Cane, Light shade of diamonds and pearls duo, light shade of neutral territory duo, light shade of day into date duo, brown shade of polar blue quad, Hazy, Black Honey, Dark brown shade of morning Java quad.

So the eye shadow palette is my everything it really is. With 8 slightly shimmery shadows and 3 Super Shimmer shadows as stated on the packaging it’s ideal for any looks. From the packaging and the colour descriptions on the reverse of the packaging its a series of the best colours from other palettes so I’m not sure about that. BUT this is just amazing.

The shades across the palette range from an Icy Shimmery white to a Deep rich chocolatey brown. This Palette has every possible beige/nude colours possible. 

the packaging is a plastic silver reflective case which is opens and closes quite well so is very sturdy. I love how clinical Cliniques packaging is and how clean it is. 

If you want to try this palette buy it NOW here as it’s limited edition and for £32 you can’t go wrong in my eyes.  

Image

So the second purchase was the Bottom Lash Mascara in the shade Black of course. 

I’ve been looking for one of these since forever! I’m the worst for smudging mascara underneath my lash line and then never being able to take it off properly which annoys me tremendously. 

I’ve not used this mascara yet but i will certainly try it out for the next few days and update you guys. But so far I like what I see. The packaging is cute with a frosty white exterior with silver flowers embossed on the packaging. It’s so clinical and clean again which is what I love so much about Clinique. the mascara is lightweight and compact so it can fit in your make-up bag or bag for a night out and not take up enough space. 

This little mascara wil be a lifesaver for anyone so you can buy it HERE now for £12 which I think is reasonably priced.

Image

 

Then just when I thought my Clinique delivery couldn’t get any better there was samples 3 to be exact all wrapped up in Clinique tissue paper which is just so lovely and shows that care goes into each delivery. 

So starting from Left to Right we have; 7 day scrub cream, dramatically different moisturising lotion + and finally Anti Blemish solution. 

All of the above 3 Samples I will get use of and hopefully buy the full size versions so I’m really excited to try these samples over the next week and will again update you on what I think. 

Image

Overall I’m so excited to try out all of my items from Clinique and keep you guys updated as we go. Follow me on Instagram on Twitter for pictures of looks and products as I try them out.

Bye 2013 & Hello 2014!

Hello Hello Hello!

I’ve decided to write this post to reflect on the year that has quickly gone by.

Well Where to start. 2013 has been a rollercoaster to say the least. I moved out of home and lived with my Boyfriend, then moved out into a house where I thought I would set up a home. However things can change so quickly these days and We split up just before Christmas. I’d found myself not doing things for me and trying to please other people or just getting by.

I used to work in recruitment as an industrial consultant running my own desk, working on call every other week and slowly being consumed by the M60 and M62 oh and the job itself. It took over my life. Between paying bills, playing house and Work I found no time for me let alone my best friends and family. So I Left and I’m now a receptionist for A Local vets where my mum works. I travel on no Motorways and for once my job DOES NOT Rule me.

Since being on my own this last couple of weeks I’ve found myself a lot happier with where I am and What I’m going to achieve. I’ve started this Blog for starters. I’m back at home with my mum and well i could be happier about that. 😉

I’ve also come to realise that I have the best friends I could ever ask for. Brittany & Alex. I’ve known them since 2008-2009 we went to school together but it was only in the final year we really got close. I love them to absolute bits. They’ve been with me through anything and everything. I can always count on them when I need them and know that I don’t need to see them daily or touch base with them they are just there. they’ve helped me through so many tough times over the years so if your reading this both of you. I love you to the world and back thanks for sorting me out when I need it and thank you for being there to be the most stupid people ever. I love you both.

Me and alex

Me and Bea

Oh and Brittany or Pea has her own blog as well so please please hit her up here.

My Mum. She’s amazing. we clash but I love her none the less. She has tackled so much this year alone she’s no a bionic women. She’s gone through a Hip replacement, pain in her arms and also dealing with her bipolar. She’s the most brave and beautifully amazing person. She’s made me be independent and strong and allowed me to stand on my own two feet. Whenever I need her she is always there & I love her to the moon and back.

Mum

My Dad. We’ve had our ups and downs as my parents are separated I don’t see him as often nor has he been that involved. This last year our relationship has grown into a father and daughter bond. He’s there for me when I need him and I know he wont let me down. Moving houses with me a million times. Giving me money for petrol or just being there for a massive cuddle telling me its all going to be okay. I don’t tell him I love him a lot in fact it’s very rare but one of my resolutions which I guess is a bit far out is to tell my dad I love him more because you never know when you might lose someone.

My Grandparents. They are just truly amazing. I’m so blessed to have them both still in my life. they help me out financially and emotionally. I couldn’t thank them enough for what they have done for me for the last 21 years. My Gran is always there when I need my eyebrows plucking OR when i need a cuddle. My Grandad is always there for advice or when I need to be brought down a peg or two. he is always there for me. They are the most amazing grandparents I could ask for. I hope they’re reading this so if you are I love you.
Grandparents

Youtube and Blogs. YES that’s right! I’ve discovered YouTube and the world of Blogging. The one person From YouTube and her blog is Sprinkle of Glitter. She has given me the most confidence in what I wear how I look and me. Oh and all things makeup, glitter, beauty and lifestyle. I discovered her through Zoella who again has inspired me to start a blog and experiment more. So although they both may not see this Thankyou.

So as I sit here watching Matilda eating popcorn embracing New years in every possible way i’m starting 2014 extremely grateful for the family and bestfriends around me that i need. Oh not to mention my dog Bruiser. Find a link to some pictures of her here. I’m feeling very blessed, Loved and very lucky to have these people with me for another year. I Love you all.

Thankyou so much for Reading this. See you In 2014.
