Do you know what makes me happy………. MAKE UP THAT COMES IN THE POST!!!! yep it’s that time again where I have been on a make up haul and this time it is the lovely MUA. Last time I had a haul from them I had a disappointing discovery that my BB cream had split in the packaging, so I was very worried about what I may discover this time. But I was pleasantly pleased 🙂 yay! go them. Let’s see what I bought 🙂

I got a massive package today (oi oi not in that sense unfortunately) but a lovely package from E.l.f in which I bought a large variety of makeup, they are/were depending when you’re reading this 40% off and also a free spring collection. I therefore thought I would go through what has been delivered to moi 🙂

PicMonkey Collagea

Here is my lovely box, it was rather large and here you can see what I got…. it was full of goodies and the purple bit was my surprise of the summer collection.

The first product I HAD to look at was the beautiful nail varnishes at £15 look how many you get and the gorgeous colours, I cannot wait to try them! By the way its really dusty its not my phone, they stupidly package the box with this weird cardboard cross cut out which is ridiculous.

I already have the purple/red beauty book and I love it, I spoke about it in a previous job but these are beautiful colours and again I cant wait to use them especially for day to day use – it of course comes with a “how to guide” on the flip side.

PicMonkey CollagedsThis is one of my “free” products, I am not too sure at the moment about this one as I have never used a product like it. It is a lip defining product and shapes as well, it is in a rose tiny so we shall see as I am not used to the paler colours.

Every day essential.

A tinted moisturiser, my skin at the moment is bad…… I mean bad…… so I am hoping with a bit of moisture in my product it will help the skin along too!

20140402_152513

Another free product, never thought of putting silver/grey primer eyeshadow together, but when applied to the skin it comes across as a more pearl and a white shimmer.

You know what I thought I am gonna try a glossy lip gloss and it is a lovely tint, smells nice and not too gloopy.

20140402_152314Look at these lovely shades!!!!!!! I will look into these further in a future post.

20140402_152242Another free product!!! This is really light to the touch, its so weird to touch though a kinda cream and powder combined but its nice to apply – not too pigmented.

20140402_152231

Hmm I thought I would give a HD Blush a go, I have got the wrong shade………. haha its so bright for me, so I am going to have to work around it – there are always ways.

20140402_152218

Essential.

20140402_152156Quick post 🙂 Have a good day xo

Best way to take lipstick off – KISSES.

As I said on Twitter (@loveyouandthem by the way), I was going or am shall I writing a post about the lipsticks that I own. I own a fair few lipsticks and I hardly wear them, but when I do it gives me so much confidence. If anyone else wore lipstick at work I definitely would but not single woman I work with wears it and I feel silly when I do. When people see me on nights out or on days off they’re shocked I wear it and I’m like it’s normal!!

Lipstick just gives you that extra ooze of confidence, gives your smile that more noticeable and of course it attracts the males/females whatever tickles your fancy.

So here are the lipsticks that I own ……. so far lol!, ps I have tried to match the lips to the shade of the lippy:

To be honest my least favourite lipstick that I own, its great although I will give it its due for a morning pick me up and its easy to apply but it just does not stay. As you can see whilst I have been on the bus I have decided to wipe away all the text from the product, therefore it took a hella long time to find out what the hell this was called hence the note inside the photo! This is the only photo I have that shows the product look on a piece of paper as it was the late thought “oh this would have been a good idea to do” but then I couldn’t be arsed to go back and change them all! Its my only product of the crayon type that I own and probably will ever own.

20140401_194358

Poundland are strangely becoming one of my favourite places for make up, THERE I said it it’s now out in the open. The Gothica range comes out around the halloween time and it’s just bloody marvellous. If you ever see this lipstick along with their gothica black nail varnish I cannot stress to you enough to buy it. The nail varnish needs 1 coat, its so opaque and it hardly chips. This lipstick is great it really deepens the lips and especially with a dark red lipstick it makes it even vampier (yes that is a word….) love it!

20140401_194116

I use this lipstick more in the Spring / Summer time with the pastel shades of clothing that I like to wear. Its light, creamy and easy to apply and lasts for sometime. The shade is not too pink but its just about right for someone to think “is she wearing lipstick or are that her own lips”… or my lips are just a weird pink shade lol!

20140401_193808

I wore this and wrote about this in my look of the day the other day – if you wish to read that click on this — iloveyouyouknowthat — it’s a hidden gem that I found at the bottom of my make up box and I just love it! When I first saw this in the shop I did think “shit this is a bit dark” but its a proper grower and its a beautiful purply/red colour and I love it!

20140401_193447

This used to be one of my favourites before I found the others and it is just a delight a beaut of a lipstick and so Spring, I therefore may start using it more! The packaging is just adorable and it has a look of a lockable device to it, which means that the top won’t easily fall off in your hand bag. It is definitely the classiest looking lipstick I have.

20140401_193220

I love e.l.f products, they know that, I know that but this……. no. It took me about 5/10 seconds to even open it up and wind it up to what you can see in the photo there for a start! The shade is lovely in the photo and in person, but when its applied to the lips it’s kinda like tinted vaseline. Classified as “posh” but I don’t think Victoria Beckham would go near this. Haha. Ssh woman!

20140401_193043

If you read my blog often (thank you you weirdo) that you will know that this is one of my favourites, as I was going through my make up box I actually came around a second one of these haha, bit obsessed. It has a matte finish and feel to it but with an added shimmer which I love. The shade is more towards the pink side of lilac.

20140401_192831

I think I went through a phase of loving red lipstick and this is the one that I chose in the end, to keep when I had a big clear out the other month. It’s classified as “rose passion” it is striking, creamy and very kissable. The packaging is very elegant and you definitely would not miss it in your handbag.

20140401_192620

As I am a lover of the matte lipstick from MUA I am about to review, I have not used this particular shade a lot. I have tried to and I have found that it has not been as effective. The shade is very girly and pink so if you love that then you’re definitely in for a treat.

20140401_192413

Here’s the matte shade that I love from MUA, the Scarlet Siren is just a must have for those who love the matte and the deep reds of lipsticks. It is a great colour, not too powerful but enough to think “yeah I am feeling and looking great today!” and as it was only £1 …. buy this instead of hmm…. a chocolate bar. Oh I now fancy a chocolate bar!

20140401_192542

Wink Pink is always in my handbag, its a pinky purple shade which is perfect for those mornings in which you need to add a little colour to your face when you are feeling absolutely ridiculously tired. Its nice, cooling, a calming shade (yes calming) and a bonus is that it moisturises your lips 😉 mwah!

20140401_192510

My ultimate fave. No other words. So kissable.

So I hope that you enjoyed my lipstick post, I like to swear and if you read this blog I write as I think and I think as I would chat….. that makes no fucking sense. Ha ha.

Enjoy, remember pucker up those lips and give the boys/girls kisses

My look of the day…

Alright lovers, I thought for once I would do a look what I look like post today… I am currently off on sick leave hence why there are loads of posts at the moment and I will be off next week. So I did all my make up and bent down to get the top which I am about to show you and my back went into spasm….. so I am standing there in pain in just my trousers…….. literally lol wanting to cry. Finally sat down and here are the photos I took, yep you clearly wanted to know about me half naked in pain LOL. I am sorry for the quality of the photos, I am upgrading my phone in 2 months time!!

IMG_20140328_171447

So this is me today and my ultimate favourite top, its a green minty pastel colour with a lovely floral design from the company called Papaya, it’s a few years old now and for the love of me I cannot remember whether this brand is from Matalan, Peacocks and Primark, but I believe it is Matalan. I love the look and it is kinda a crop top it comes just past the waist which is great and is lovely and fitted. The back is plain mint with no floral design.

Again I am sorry for the rubbish lighting and photographs, I am a size 18-20 so hence why I am not your usual size 8-14…. currently the black bottoms that I am wearing are extremely baggy PJ bottoms from Primark and they are so comfy. As I am unable to leave the house at the moment they are perfect for me.

Here is my eye make up, this is a standard look for me………. mascara by Maybelline Colussal Cats Eyes, Look Liquid Eyeliner and the eyeshadow the natural palette by W7, finally the new MUA LUXE eyebrow pencil in mid brown which I love!

PicMonkey CollagelipsHaha I thought I would go for 3 different looks for the new lipstick that I have bought, the Matte Lipstick MUA – Red Siren. Its easy to apply, very creamy and finally a cheap lipstick that is actually MATTE!!!!! I love it, I do like still the shade of the Kate Moss 107 matt BUT this is a close contender now.

So there you go …….. what do you think?

Yay makeup in the post time!

As usual I have two photos which are linked with the blog I am about to post about, but to be honest this time I could not be bothered to search high and low so I thought I’d post a photo of a beautiful dress and a post which may or may not be true about this post! Back to the subject of the post, I usually purchase my make up online via the ELF website but this time I have gone for MUA and wow they send a lot of bubble wrap but here’s what I bought:

I have finally bought after so many recommendations the MUA nail varnish shade of Natural Days, it’s such a cute and girly nail polish which is great for the Spring, Summer days. I love pastels at the moment and they just go with anything, I have really long nails at the moment and it’s just great to show them off with this shade! So thank you for all the recommendations! You little gems ❤

Please ignore the chipped nail varnish, I had not applied the new nail varnish yet and the lighting was lovely at the time! MUA BB cream, I have read a lot about BB creams, I haven’t honestly tried this yet so I will apply in a few days time when I am feeling better but I have already applied it to my hand (as you do) and its nice and soft to apply, great shade as well which is so hard to find a shade my colour!

2

MUA LUXE – Power brow, it has two ends as you can see one for the definition of the brow (comes in 3 different shades, a type of thin but hard crayon texture) and the other side is a highlighting colour which is meant to be placed under the brow. I bought this product in the mid brown shade.

5

MUA brush in L1, I will be using this more for my eyebrows in the thicker section, but then again I could change for apply lipstick – of course will wash after each use you don’t need red brows or brown lips now do we haha!!

If you read my other blogs you would be aware that I am a lover of the matte lipsticks, I have therefore bought Pouty Pink and Scarlet Siren. Great colours in the packaging, great when it first goes onto your skin as you can see in the second photo – the third photo is me just slightly moving my finger over the lipstick. At £1 each I can see why they are a £1, you will be constantly reapplying this lipstick.

So there’s my products that I have bought recently, hope you have enjoyed the post – something quick to read 🙂
