Gorgeous summery nails feat OPI

My fave nail look of now!

Im loving this look on my nails right now
its OPI's Your such a kabuki queen from the Japanese collection
it is a gorgeous deep and rich coral shade
and it is a full coverage colour -which I love
Im wearing OPI ltd ed glitter top coat in gold over it
which makes the shade look amazing
It would definitely suit an asian bride

NEW Chanel stuffies

Chanel soleil tan de Chanel
Summer collection

Products featured above
Soleil tan de Chanel bronze universel bronzing makeup base
Soleil tan de Chanel Sheer illuminating fluid
Chanel levres scintillantes glossimer -257

I do tend to use alot of Chanel products as Im rarely upset with the quality
the bronze universel -is supposed to be used as a base in place of your foundation but you can use it under or over your foundation I tend to use it as a contour mostly but I use it in a million different ways, its a cream to powder formula and has a inner lid to stop the formula from drying out it has the most subtle gold shimmer but the shimmer is not visible on the skin
abit like MAC mineralize foundation

Although it seems that MAC have now copied this formula in their MAC to the beach cream bronzer which i will also be reviewing for you.

The sheer iluminating fluid - is a liquid highlighter similar to benefit high beam and is available from most brands but this one suits my skintone exactly so I love it as it blends in so well and it is the perfect prtner for the bronze universel.

Lipgloss in 257 - this is the new summer shade lipgloss it has alot of gold pearls in and is a peachy pink shade I fell in love with this instantly and I had to get it

all the above products are limited edition so they feature the gold double C's
the bronze products also sometimes feature the gold double C's

You can see above Chanels limited edition powder bronzer -I bought this last year and it still seems to be full as you need the smallest amount, Its very shimmery and is a gold bronze shade

My favourite matte bronzer would be bobbi brown or Smashbox.

I hope you enjoyed this post
I would love to know which are your favourite bronzers or illuminators and why

thanx for visiting my blog and thanx for following my blog.

MAC Liberty of london buys

MAC Liberty of london buys

This limited edition collection was a collaboration between MAC (obviously) and a huge london store called libertys based in the city of london

Products Purchased
- Beauty powder
Prim and proper -neutral shade Beauty powder blush
Everhip -Coral lipstick
Peachstock - Peachy nude lipstick
Frankly Fresh - neutral champagne lipgloss
English accents - lilac pink high coverage lipgloss
Liberty of london medium makeup bag

I love my choice of products all are wearable everyday

There were 2 other products that I had asked to buy that somehow disappeared from the counter but I did not find out until I got home :(
Mainly Im upset about lipgloss in 'Perennial high style' -that colour is soooo me!!!
and Im super jealous of anyone who managed to get it!!

I also got the peach eyeshadow in free to be (not pictured above but Ill feature it with my mac to the beach stuff in case you want to see it).

There was a scarf that cost about £100 but the quality was low it didnt contain anything to deserve the high price such as pure silk or cashmere it was made of nylon so I didnt bother with it.

the makeup bag was also low quality -you can see the stitching inside because they did not bother to line it.

I hope you enjoyed this post
let me know what you have bought and which products you wish you bought

as always thanx for visiting my blog and for following my blog

Tried and tested high street makeup

I really wanted to share Some high street affordable makeup products with you all that I have been testing that are worth a shout out, they are not all my favourites but they are good :)

Foundation -Loreal Infallible foundation
this is a really good foundation, fine on sensitive skin, even dry skin, long lasting, has a pump dispenser, no smell, good colour range (6/8 in uk)
Rimmel concealer
quite pigmented and some light reflection
Max Factor Mascara
False lash effect mascara -OMG not what I expected at all, This gives length, volume, and thickness, the biggest result Ive had from a mascara /almost like MAC zoom lash but better
ELF mineral eyeshadows
they actually use the exact same packaging as the Bare escentuals mineral eyeshadows so these fit into my collection perfectly, the quality is almost the same -my faves are celeb, natural, and golden.
Rimmel professional liquid eyeliner
Introduced to this by my sister, it is used by celeb MUAs and it is great for beginners and those looking for a very fine line as it has an ultra thin easy to use brush, the formula is black and lasts almost all day id say over 8 hours
No7 mascara
this mascara is for those looking for long defined lashes
Revlon Lipliner in red
I dont wear alot of red lips so I wanted a high street red lipliner and this was great
No7 lipgloss
no7 lipglosses are a great formula,nice taste, quite moisturising and are in wearable shades
Maybelline lipsticks
I have already reviewed these, great colours and packaging
Boots natural collection Clear mascara
I think expensive clear mascaras are a waste of money, these cost only £2 and can be used on fake lashes and to tidy brows etc the formula does not aggravate my sensitive eyes
Maybelline express nail polish
OMG, this nail polish dries superfast! It says 40 seconds on the bottle but I always wait 2 minutes before I touch my nails -my fave is the shimmery maroon shade -supa sexy!
thats a big thing for me to rave about a high street nail polish because I have a huge collection of OPI and nails inc and never use much else!
ELF false lashes
the cheapest lashes I could find, I prefer the natural as they look like fantastic lashes, also NYC lashes are cheap
Revlon Colorstay Powder
this is a good, affordable face powder more suitable for normal/comb/oily skin -not my fave high street powder! if you want loose try boots natural collection -only £3!
Body shop blush
nice easy to use wearable colours in see through top packaging, shade 04 is a dupe for nars orgasm at a 1/3 of the price :)

I hope you have found this post useful
Please do not forget to subscribe
- and let me know what your loving or not off of the high street
