From My Stash | Cream Blushers

Cream Blushers ft. Benefit Majorette, No7 Maple Silk, GOSH Shy, Topshop Head Over Heels - Aspiring Londoner

Although we’re mid-winter, I’ve been seeing a lot of Spring inspired makeup on blogs and it made me think about the one thing I change in this transition.  Blush.  I seem to gravitate towards cream blushers during Spring as it makes my makeup look much more fresh.  I’ve rounded four cream blushers from my stash for you.

Kiko Cosmetics Generation Next | The Spring Collection 2015

Kiko Cosmetics Generation Next Spring Collection Review - Aspiring Londoner

Kiko is spitting out collections faster than you can say new makeup!  I will say, the Spring Collection ‘Generation Next’ from Kiko Milano is up there with the best.  The packaging is great, not brilliant like the Daring Game collection (drool!).  It’s futuristic as the collection celebrates just that with its geometric packaging and metallic tones inspired by famous Italian Murano glassware.  The products are truly special.

I don’t know about you but I’m utterly obsessed with Netflix.  I’ve found that I hardly ever watch TV anymore.  In my free time I’m more and more inclined to binge on TV series on Netflix and peoples’ tweets tell me you’re all doing the same thing!  I wanted to share my top 5 TV series available on Netflix so you can binge the way I do.

From My Stash | Primers

From My Stash | Primers ft. Bourjois, GOSH, Sleek & MAC - Aspiring Londoner

Primers are an essential for oily skinned gals like me.  Otherwise I find my foundation slipping and turning into a bit of a mess.  Finding drugstore/high street primers are a known struggle as it’s hard to know what it’ll be like until you buy it and by then you’ve already spent the money.

Models Own Colour Chrome Collection Review & Swatches

Models Own Colour Chrome Collection Review & Swatches - Aspiring Londoner

Models Own are by far my favourite nail polish brands.  One, because their colour range is insane, and two, because their new releases always grip me.  The Colour Chrome collection is no exception.  With 10 molten metallic shades of chrome, bringing something new to the table other than pastels, neons, and berries.

Appleyards London Liberty Luxury Bouquet Review - Aspiring Londoner

There’s nothing quite like fresh flowers to uplift and brighten your day.  Waking up in the morning and seeing a beautiful bunch of flowers always puts a smile on my face and that’s the best way to start a day in my opinion!

Review | NARS All Day Luminous Powder Foundation

NARS All Day Luminous Powder Foundation Review - Aspiring Londoner

I’ve never really worn powder foundation.  I always felt that they just wouldn’t work on my skin and just make my skin look cakey.  I was quite intrigued to try this for that reason to actually find out once and for all if that was in fact the case!

The Post Gym Pamper Session

The Post Gym Pamper Session ft. Calcot Manor & The Body Shop - Aspiring Londoner

I’ve been doing my health and fitness thang for the past seven months.  Within this time I’ve realised that I need to continuously push myself.  This means making my muscles work more and more to increase strength and stamina.  Understandably this leads to sore and tired muscles.  I needed something to soothe and I’ve perfected a little routine over the past few weeks that helps me to do just that.

Rimmel Provocalips 16HR Kissproof Lip Colour Review

Rimmel Provocalips 16hr Kissproof Lip Colour Review - Aspiring Londoner

Long-lasting lip products are something every makeup wearer is after.  Over the years, brands have tried to achieve the longest lasting lip products in many shapes and forms, yet few have succeeded in creating something that fulfilled all the criteria.  Some lasted but completely dried out our lips or some kept the lips in good conditions but failed to maintain the colour and finish.

14 Favourites Of 2014

2014 Favourites ft Nars, Jo Malone, Bobbi Brown, By Terry - Aspiring Londoner

Narrowing this year’s favourites to mere 14 products was a difficult job.  I have tried and loved so many different products this year, it’s unreal.  I’ve tried to include products from most categories, but as you can tell there are like three base products!

Bourjois Smoky Stories Quad Palettes Review

Bourjois Quad Smoky Stories Eyeshadow Palette Review - Aspiring Londoner

Smoky eye makeup was never my forte.  I’ve always had to try a few of times before I got it right, as time have passed I now manage to do it one go.  Starting out with eyeshadow it’s difficult to visualise which shades will work together the best, understanding the shape of your eyes and working out the best way to apply the shadow.  It’s always helpful when brands help you along, and that’s exactly what Bourjois has done.
