makeup wishlist #2

i've gone mental with sleek makeup at the moment, but its hard to get my hands on since my local boots or superdrug doesn't stock it so i need to order online, but i've really enjoyed doing my eye makeup recently so these will come in handy! The collection mascaras are screaming my name, since im a naughty makeup junkie who actually doesn't change the mascara im using every 6 months, mainly because i forget when i brought it! Shock and horror, i only have one lipstick on this wishlist, i saw this shade on a instagram picture from hollysamanthaa (she is actually amazing with makeup so go and check her out and follow her!) and i loved the shade so much ive been lusting after it ever since. The anastasia beverly hills dipbrow pomade is something everyone is talking about and it looks amazing on everyone. The beautyuk shimmer boxes are bobbi brown dupes and i really want to see if they actually are dupes!

autumn/winter lippies ♥

well hello my loves, 

ive been planning this post for a few months and i couldnt decide if i wanted to add gloss finish or not but just incase you like that look in autumn/winter ive added a few in here and there.

L/R - Studio gear lipstick - mocha berry // Rimmel moisture renew lipstick - fleur-tatious // Avon ultra lipstick - really rosy // Beautyuk glacier gloss - plum & have ago // 

Rimmel lasting finish "kate" lipstick - 07 // Essence longlasting lipstick - dare to wear // Rimmel moisture renew lipstick - electric plum // Revlon super lustrous lipstick - va va violet //  

MUA power pout - crazy in love // Rimmel apocalips - celestial //

im not a big gloss girl but i do enjoy the beautyuk glosses since there opaque on their own and none sticky (winning)  and the rimmel apocalips are more a liquid lipstick. 

The reason for no swatches is because most of these are up for review in the coming weeks and there will be swatches then.

creightons squeeky clean "scrubaholic" face scrub ♥

While looking for a weekly face scrub i came across this in poundland and couldnt help but pick it up just down to the packaging. it was far to cute to leave on the shelve. its got a very soap and glory feel about it while only being a pound. while i only use this one a week and on the other days i use my beloved botanics cleansing toner. i honestly didnt know how i felt about this at first, it has a real fruity scent which doesnt bother me at all, its a cream scrub not a soap one so it doesnt foam which is what i personally prefer and like, the grain in the scrub isnt to rough and theres a good amount in the cream to feel a difference. 
for a pound a think i would pick it up again since i only use it once a week its not at all bad and i do feel a difference in my skin when i use it, it also hasnt broken me out at all.

pure bb cream - light & ultra light ♥

i personally broght the shade light myself for £1.99 but it didnt match, it was far far far to dark for me and i ended up looking like a umpalumpa not a good look for me personally, i know some people go for that look and each to there own as they say but its just not for me so when they contacted me i mentioned that i brought it but the shade is terrible on my skin. and they sent me the ultra light out along with the cc cream. 

the packaging is like the garnier bb cream which i like the look of but the garnier bb cream is full and not just half full. it feels oily and i cant get along with it personally, ive tried blotting the oil out when its applied it just doesnt work! it makes my skin look terrible and the worst bit is it breaks me out every time i wear it? not a good thing for a blemish balm really is it?  the ultra light shade is a perfect match for me but i cant deal with the break outs.

makeup/beauty haul ♥

Embedded image permalink

where i work theres a poundland basically next door, at the moment im into growing my nails so i picked up 2 sets of the astor twin packs and a sally hansen nail polish. i also picked up a rimmel stay blushed from poundland in sunkissed cherry, i picked up another one of my cleansers from neutrogena they have this is the 99p store right now and they do normally have them at least once a month, i normal get this from wilkos but its the same thing but cheaper!! and ofcourse i brought a roll on. 

Embedded image permalink

i recently brought 2 lipsticks of ebay from calvin klien in rose rush and flutter (in that order in picture) i then brought a mua matte lipstick in scarlet siren, im slowly but surely picking up all the shades mua have made in lipsticks! *addict*

Embedded image permalink

clearly went a bit foundation crazy - i got the loreal infallible of ebay after deciding to get the same shade i am in true match which is vanilla, the colour is the same and is amazing if used with your hands but i find if i use a brush its a little orange for my liking i dont know if its just me though. the maybelline foundations are 3 for 2 in boots so i decided to pick up the 3 i wanted to try. fit me, better skin and superstay all in ivory. - ofcourse i brought 2 more natural collection lipsticks in pink mallow, berry blush. there was a 2 for £3.50 on but theres a few more shades i want and ofcourse being the addict i am i need them!

MUA matte lipsticks - fancy fawn & lilac belle ♥

ohh hello mua, its been along time no see hasn't it? 
i believe it was late july, early august when i last reviewed something from mua, but i have got a list of items i want from them. 

now back to business. first can we talk about the packaging? i love it! i honestly love how the normal lipsticks are in black and the mattes are in white! they look so cute all together (make up tour comming soon) the formula is a little drying but if you have lovely moisturised lips before putting these on its not a problem at least not for me, i found they last along time at least 6 hours. the lilac belle shade is beautiful in spring but you need to cancel out your natural lip colour specially if your lips are naturally pigmented. the fancy fawn is a real 90s shade im not going to say the kylie jenner trend since its not like that at all, this is more brown brown if that makes sense? but it does remind me of the 90s

over all i do like them and will reach for them as soon as spring comes around again. i do want to get the other matte shades to see the colour vibrancy and to see if there better in the winter!

rimmel apocalips lip lacquer - apocaliptic ♥

this is something i wore a lot during the summer and it wasn't until i decided to review it that i noticed it bleeds like a mother f**ker! honestly i don't know how i didn't notice it before? when these started the rounds i was reading reviews and people were saying that "there awful, they don't dry and set, they don't really stain" can i just point out that they don't claim to be a lip stain, nor do they claim to be matte or velvet so yes they stay tacky! there basically a liquid lipstick. the colour is vibrant and opaque, the finish is glossy and creamy no glitter!!  yes it bleeds but i can just liner my lips with a clear lip liner and be good to go, i have since picked up 3/4 more from poundland and if you dont read to much into the name you will be quite happy with them but if your looking for stains and matte finishes this is not for you!  but i do believe they have brought out a matte effect collection?

rimmel moisture renew lipstick - fleur-tatious ♥

now autumn is here ive started going for the deep colours which i adore and i could properly wear them all year round, i always go bolder with my lips than i do with my eyes mostly because i wear glasses and also because i feel more confident with bolder lips. This lipstick is real vibrant after just once swipe and the furmula is the kind i love not being a massive of glitter and sparkle in autumn/winter i much prefer the creams and matte formulas, this is more of a cream without the glitter! this shade stains my lips giving it a lovely berry stain. the only issue i have is it bleeds but i brought a clear lip liner just so it doesnt bleed all that bad.

since this is the old packaging you can pick these up now in poundland or even really cheap online. i got mine from poundland along with another one.
