Sugarpill Rainbow Eyes!

Hi Everyone :D

It’s July, the sun is shining and I’m feeling its time for bright eyes!

I picked up the Sugarpill Cosmetics quad eye shadow palettes in Burning Heart and Sweetheart a little while back and I’m ashamed to say I had not tried them out until now. D: But it’s time to rectify that with a bright Rainbow look. This required colours from both palettes so two birds with one stone. :D

I used NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk as a base across the whole lid and lower lash line to make the colours more vibrant and adhere easily. I found the yellow shade Buttercupcake was not as pigmented as the other colours in the palette, but with the base the colour payoff is great.

  • Inner corner: Tako, Midori, Buttercupcake
  • Lid: Flamepoint & Love+
  • Outer lid / crease : Poison Plum
  • Lower lash line: Midori, Afterparty, Poison Plum

 I can’t wait to try out other looks with these palettes, they are so bright and vivid, just gorgeous.

Do you recommend any of the other Sugarpill palettes? Let me know!

Until next time,

Chanel 2014 Spring / Summer – 204 Tissé Vendôme

Hi Everyone! :D

It’s been a while – I hope you are all fabulous!

chanel_header

Today I have to share with you the Chanel Spring / Summer 2014 Eye Shadow Quad in 204 Tissé Vendôme from the Les 4 Ombres collection.

The shades do not have individual names, however they are referred to on the palette as their purpose:

Left top: Ombre Shade | Right top: Highlight
Left bottom: Ombre Shade | Right bottom: Intensify

I’ve always found Chanel Quad palettes to be of a great quality with the really nice mirror in the top is a good size and suitable to use to apply your make up with.

The colours are gorgeous, although I found the coral had more of a tint of rose gold to it. It’s not in your face orange, but really wearable.

Logan and Chanel Quad

And this little beauty is Logan! He is a Cream Sable Pomeranian and is about 11 weeks in this picture. He was kind enough to model with me ;). He is the star of his own world, loves attention and even has his own Instagram account which you can follow here!


Until next time!

Japonesque Color Cosmetics Haul! Exclusive to John Lewis

Hi Everyone!

So I was casually strolling through John Lewis in Milton Keynes the other day and came across a Japonesque counter! I’d only heard of Japonesque for the Pro Lipstick palette of theirs I own, but it turns out they launched a make-up brand exclusive to John Lewis in selected stores.

Japonesque

The make-up artist there was really lovely and kindly gave me a few freebies, including false lashes to get started with my haul :).

From top left to right:

* Pro Performance Lipstick in shade 03
* Velvet Touch Eye Shadow Duo in shade 03
* Velvet Touch Eye Shadow Duo in shade 02
* Pro Performance Lip Lacquer in shade 01
* Pro Performance Lip Lacquer in shade 04

The lids all feature a completely unique pattern so each one is special!

What’s the best kind of lashes? Free lashes!

So here are the swatches!

Japonesque Swatches

From top left to right:

* Pro Performance Lip Lacquer in shade 01
* Pro Performance Lip Lacquer in shade 04
* Pro Performance Lipstick in shade 03

* Velvet Touch Eye Shadow Duo in shade 03
* Velvet Touch Eye Shadow Duo in shade 02

Out of the lot I’m really liking the green eye shadow, it’s very smooth and silky. The peachy pink shade was the most popular I’m told, I didn’t find it quite as pigmented as I would have liked but it does build up nicely.

The Lip Lacquer in shade 01 was free with 3 purchases, it is a lot more nude than I would usually wear but its lovely and smooth, non-sticky and quite opaque.

I’ll be sure to try all these out and review very soon. :)

Until next time!

New Hair, Feeling Purple!

Hi Everyone :D

You know when you just get that urge to dye your hair purple (or is it just me?) well I went ahead and did it. This is after  I dyed the tips pink during my break and let that fade out.

Purple

I originally went to the hairdresser for an Ombre effect which lightened my hair enough to try some bright colours on it. The colour I used here was actually Lilac from Directions, so on first application the purple is quite dark, but I expect it to fade out to the soft lilac shade.

To match my purple tips I went for MAC Cosmetics Pearlglide eyeliner in Designer Purple.

Until next time, have fun! :D

LOTD: It’s an Apocalips!

Hi Everyone! :D

It’s been a while! But I’ve had a lovely rest and I’m bright-eyed and brushy-tailed. I’ve dusted off the cobwebs and I’m ready to party. Please do bear with me while I get back into my swing, I’ve recently moved (again) and still have boxes to unpack.

I’d heard about the new  Apocalips Lip Lacquers from Rimmel and finally picked up a few shades on the Boots 3-for-2. My Lips-of-the-day is:-

Apocalips: Apocaliptic

Rimmel: Apocalips in shade Apocaliptic

I don’t really have many lip lacquers (although Temptalia really sold me Chanel Dragon) as I’ve been put off by the promises of lip stains and glosses in the past, but these apply and wear a dream. Really soft and buttery on the lips. They really stain the lips and last through my countless cups of tea all day!

Until next time, have fun! :)
