I’m a bit of a foundation snob. I have never really bought foundation from drugstore/highstreet before (except the L’Oreal TrueMatch, read here). The reason behind it is that with my yellow toned yet redness issues make it rather difficult to find a good foundation match.

Budget eye shadows are definitely having their moment in the sun currently. There are so many that are great quality and I love that. I’ve never been one to splash on eye shadows unless they really do something unique or special or I just can’t say no to the packaging (I’m looking at you Kiko!). So when I came across this palette, I was rather excited.

Now that we’re well into autumn, my summer body lotion just isn’t cutting it anymore. I’ve switched to something richer. I tend to moisturise after my shower, but it’s always rather irritates me how long it takes for body lotions/butters to sink in. It delays getting dressed and getting into bed all warm and cosy! Enter dry oils!

If you’ve been reading my blog recently, you must’ve noticed I’m pretty obsessed with Kiko Milano right now. They have excellent products and their collections just get better with eac one they release. I honestly didn’t think they could top their Daring Game Collection, but lo and behold they release the Luxurious collection. There aren’t enough heart eye-shaped emoticons in the world to express my absolute awe of these products.
I have a confession to make; I’ve never tried gel eye liners. Is that bad? I’ve always worked with liquid liners and they’ve worked so well for me that I never felt the need to try gel liners. The idea of taking a brush and sticking in a pot of liner and then applying on my lash line seemed like too much hard work! However I have always been intrigued about it.

Blue nail polishes are hard to wear. I find some blue polishes make my hands look strange and just don’t suit me. As are glitter polishes, they usually make you look like you’re under the age of 13…having said that, I love glitter polishes! So I have a grown up way of wearing glitter and looking sophisticated!

Although I started my lipstick journey with MAC, I’ve since then experimented with a lot of brands. My experiments lead me to the conclusion, you don’t always get what you pay for. Drugstore lipsticks are more and more getting the formula right. Granted ‘high-end’ lipsticks have the packaging ‘ooh’ factor but drugstore brands aren’t far behind in that either. GOSH have got it pretty right with their Velvet Touch Lipstick range.

A couple of months ago, quite spontaneously we decided to take a road trip down south beginning at Cambridge. I’ve heard so much about the architecture and the charm of Cambridge that it’s always been on my list to visit. We spent two days there and used up every single minute to do something. I’m going to share my top 5 things to do whilst in Cambridge if you’re contemplating a visit.

Autumn/Winter has taken AL by storm! I’ve fallen for all the makeup trends and fallen hard. I’ve tried out so many different products and looks and loved experimenting with colours! One of my favourites has to be the colour eye liner look. This is one of these things I’ve wanted to do for the longest time but never quite gathered the courage for it.

I have very long, fine hair. In maintaining the length and ensuring good health of my hair, I end up trying many, many hair masks and treatments. One such treatment I’m reviewing today is from Weleda. I’ve previously tried Weleda’s Skin Food (review here) which I loved.

Working full-time, managing my home and blogging all can be quite full on sometimes. If I don’t strike a good balance of these, the stress of it all can get to me. As a ritual, every Sunday I ensure I set aside some ‘me’ time. For me, this has two benefits, 1) it’s a great way to relax and unwind after the week and 2) it motivates and prepares me for the week starting on Monday! If I didn’t have my Sunday time, I imagine I’d be a terror/misery guts on Monday morning!

I’ve been utterly obsessed with the Kiko Milano Limited Edition Daring Game Collection for Fall/Autumn. It’s inspired by smart and beautiful Bond girls and casinos often featured in Bond films. It’s created for confident women to create eye catching looks. Today I’m going to share with you the Kiko Milano Color-Up Long LastingEyeshadow* £7.90, aka the best eye shadows ever!

Another month closer to Christmas! I think I can get away with being excited about Christmas now, without people giving me funny looks! Last month, I've tried out literally tons of makeup. This'll be evident in my upcoming reviews. But I've picked out things that I've religiously used on a daily basis. Let's begin!

Many women find it difficult to find the perfect lipsticks that complement their skin tone and have the correct undertones. Now No7 has the solution to this problem. They started their foundation matching service in 2012, and concealer match made service in 2013 and now have gone one step further to provide ‘No7 Match Made Lipstick Service’! I was very intrigued when I first heard of this so visited my local Boots store to see what it’s all about.
