FOTD:- Its all peachy for spring

This spring seems to be extremely peachy keen for me 
I hope you enjoy thins look that features Sleek's latest avoir le peche limited edition collection that I picked up a week ago and ive already used it twice


Products used

Face :- Mac studio fix foundation nc30, Smashbox concealer light under eyes, Sleek pan tao blush, max factor translucent loose powder.

Eyes:- Mac painterly paintpot, Sleek Avoir le peche paraguaya eyeshadow palette, redstone inner half lid, perisimmon outer half lid and crease, stone outer crease, sandstone as high light on browbone.

Lips:- Revlon colorburst lipstick in peach, Bodyshop peach lipgloss.


I have just found this sleek promotional ad online which shows the whole collection I have the palette and the blush sadly the lip product had sold out however I will keep my eyes out for it. 
I realised when I found it the look I like to do with this palette is quite similar

I think this palette goes well with my rimmel lipstick in bikini rose as well as my body shop peach coral lipstick and gloss I bought a while back which you can find else where on my blog also my revlon colorburst lipstick in peach. 

Even though Ive gone peach, coral and orange on eyes lips cheeks I dont feel its too matchy matchy because of the gradient in tones and shades. 
Ill try to update this with a picture from my camera as this one was from my webcam because I really wanted to share this look with you all






I am loving this nail polish its by 17 which is boots affordable younger brand, A lipgloss had caught my eyes and you make a purchase and you get another similar but lighter pink lipgloss and this nail polish and a waterproof mascara -which Im on the lookout for because I rarely wear waterproof.
17 is an affordable dupe of no7 cosmetics I feel the quality is the same but colour wise there is more variety where i feel no7 trys to stay more sophisticated.

The nail polish is pink grapefruit and it is the perfect coral nail polish for this spring.
Im rocking it on my fingers and toes and its looking fantastic with my glitzy sandals.

I think its about £3 so you dont really have alot to lose, one coat gives plenty of colour and I always seal off with seche vite top coat.

Review:-Revlon colorburst lipstick

Revlon describes these lipsticks as an instant burst of rich colour with a feather light feel
I think they retail for about £8 in the UK and are available in 8 shades
I really like these lipsticks the packaging is very smart and sophisticated and the top of the lipsticks are colour co ordinated to the actual shade of the lipstick inside the bullet.

I really feel that these lipsticks are the perfect and more affordable dupe of the recently launched Bobbi brown rich lip Color which are somewhere near the £15 mark
So you can buy two of these for the price of 1 bobbi brown lipstick
and at the time that I am posting this Boots are running a buy 2 get 3rd free on Revlon cosmetics 
so hurry if you want to buy 2 or three of these.


Colours Swatched are 
Baby pink
Carnation
Fuschia
Coral
Peach
Raspberry
True Red
Crimson 


The first colours I thought I would get are nude and baby pink after seeing swatches of these shades on Amiras beauty blog who also shares a love of nude lip shades
however nude did not make it to the UK :(
but worry not I managed to get one at an increased price directly from the USA
from the UK stock I bought 'peach' which is actually a light orange.

I have been really bad I took these pictures when the lipstick launched 
but I hope you will forgive me because I have put them up now 

There are two other colours available in the UK now 
these are :-
'Nude blush' and 'Rose'

and i think another 7 new shades in USA
Petal
Pink Sugar 
Candy Pink
Cherry Ice
Lilac
Mauve
Plum

I would be tempted to pick up a pink shade from the UK collection but I already have the Bobbi brown rich lip color in 'mod pink' which I have already blogged about.

I definitely like carnation, nude blush, baby pink from the UK collection so these are the three shades I would pick up if I bought them in the offer from boots. 

And from the USA my recommendations would be petal and pink sugar from the online swatches that Revlon have provided on their websites but any experienced makeup buyer will know that these can be totally off!

I hope you like this post 
I would love to know your thoughts and whether you have picked up any of these lipsticks or your recommendations for any other lipstick you think that I should have in my collection.

Thanx for stopping by

Review:- Revlon precision lash adhesive


I was so glad when revlon launched this new eyelash glue I had to pick it up immediately
as always I really like to use a product for a while before i stick up a review
and I feel that it has been along time now so that is why I am putting up this review

The revlon precision lash adhesive is great to carry in your makeup bag for those of you who regularly wear cosmetic faux lashes.

The container is best described similar to a mascara, there is no wand at the end but the tip is suitable for applying lash glue to your lashes.

The glue is a white pearlescent, you simply apply a thin layer to the lashes and wait for it to go tacky and for the pearlescent to disappear and then you apply your lashes either with an applicator or your fingers.

It really is that easy!

Its affordable at over £5 I cannot remember the exact price (as always)

And its available from Boots and possibly superdrugs and anywhere else that sells revlon.

I hope this is a helpful post for all of you

My latest louis vuitton dilemma

If you havent already guessed Im really into brands and designers 
what can I say Im just a girl that likes quality
and Im at that point in my life where I deserve to have treats for myself 
after all I work very very hard!

Im a good girl I dont indulge in any bad habits 
-so why not??


I loved this little bag sooo sooo much
It has just enough space for my necessities and I can be quite minimalistic 
and as Im quite petite I carry off smaller lady like bags very well


Even after bubby was born I still chose to carry a louis vuitton
but again this bag is on the small-ish size 
and babys need alot of things carried with them

So my current dilemma is which louis vuitton do I go for this year ?
Let me know if you have a louis vuitton or whichever bag you are carrying 
and your suggestions 



PS I have already had a louis vuitton papillion, speedy, greta, tivoli so preferably im looking for suggestions outside of these , unless you are going to recommend a different speedy for example that you have had and love.

Also I have a huge wishlist that I am working my way through so I dont want to spend all that I have on a bag just a cut of it -lol

Let me know your thoughts
