May Favourites

Hey Lovelies, here are my favourites for this month.

MUA's Undress Me Too Palette, I've been using this palette the most this month, I love that it has matte and shimmery shades, there all quite pigmented, there is a variety of colours to create both daytime and nighttime looks and it's only £4 and a dupe for the Naked 2 so you can't go wrong.

17 Doll'd Up Mascara, this mascara is great for lengthening and slightly curling and not clumping up your lashes, I did a full review here.

The MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter, when I wanted to highlight my cheekbones this has been my go too highlighter, it's a shimmery pink and gives a nice glow to the cheeks that is long lasting and is really inexpensive.

L'oreal Paris Sandalwood Pink Blush, this is my all time favourite pink blush that I have tried and this is the blush I wear the most when I wear a pink blush, it's a matte shade, it's the right sort of pink for my skin tone and is pigmented and long lasting.

MAC Cream Soda Blush, is a peach blush that has a slight shimmer but isn't noticeable on the skin, it's perfect for spring and summer and is long lasting, full review here.

The Rimmel London Kate Moss Lipstick in Shade 16, it's a corally pink, perfect for spring and summer, very pigmented, slightly moisturising and long lasting, if you read my blog you will know I love the Kate Moss lipsticks.

YSL Lingerie Pink Lipstick, is a dusky barbie pink shade, it's pigmented and very moisturising and glossy and feels great on the lips, full review here.

The Maybelline Colorsenstaional Cream Gloss in Pink Petal, I've been loving wearing this with the YSL lipstick, like in the name it's very creamy and not sticky and it's a light pink with gold shimmer in it.

The Natural Collection Sherbet Fizz Lipgloss, I've also liked wearing this with the YSL and other lipsticks, it's not sticky and pigmented and is a pink shade with purpley/pink shimmer in.

The shimmer is not that noticeable when on the lips for both lipglosses.

I've now got back into wearing lipgloss, I used to be a massive lipgloss fan then I hardly used it and just would  just wear lipstick and now I like wearing lipgloss again.

Non-Beauty Favourites

Music-Demi Lovato's album Demi, Glee-All or Nothing, Union J-Carry You, The Wanted-Walks Like Rihanna.

TV Programmes- Revenge and Once Upon A Time both ended and they had great last episodes and I can't wait to see what happens on the next series, Glee ended too and I loved the last episode you get to find out who Ryder's catfish was even though I already kinda knew who it would be and they won Regionals and the Vampire Diaries also ended and it's been a great series of suspense and death's of some of my favourite characters.

Food- Cadbury's Marvellous Jelly Popping Candy it's not really a proper food but I tried it and loved it, Sheppard's Pie I've had a few times this month and I love it and the Handmade Burger Co's Chicken and Cheese Burger I had at the Sheffield Meetup was so yummy.

What are you favourites for the month, let me know.

Tally Tiger Jewellery

Hey Lovelies, I was very kindly sent this jewellery by Tally Tiger but I'm only just getting round to reviewing it.

Tally Tiger was launched in early 2012, there website is run from Edinburgh in Scotland and there aim was to offer pieces that really stand out.

They came in this stripped packaging with a sticker which I think is cute.

This peacock pattern ring is my absolute favourite piece, it's very unique ring and I've not seen any like this before and is really cute, the ring is adjustable so it's perfect for me because I have thin fingers, so it's suitable for everyone and it's only £3 which is really inexpensive.

This skull bracelet is gold with blue string round it, this is also adjustable and I really like this type of bracelets and I do like skulls. I don't think you can get this bracelet anymore because I can't see it on the website so not sure how much it is.

I really like the red triangles, to me these are statement earrings and I think the skulls look quite bold and scary and they really stand out, there not really to my taste but I'm sure other people will like them. These earrings are £3 so there also inexpensive.

I think Tally Tiger has some great pieces on the site and they are all really affordable and has something to suit everyone.

Here's some pieces that I love from there site.

This is the multi bubble necklace and is a very bright and colourful necklace perfect for summer, this is a statement necklace and can help glam up any outfit and is £8.

This is the floral peace necklace, this is very unique and cute, this is also bright and perfect for summer. I love floral and peace jewellery and is only £4.

These are the large multi cross earrings, I also love cross jewellery and this can go with most outfits and this is only £4.
And finally these aztec triangle earrings, aztec is all in for summer and I really like these earrings and they can go with most outfits and there only £2 that's really inexpensive.

All these images are from the Tally Tiger website.

Tally Tiger is a great brand and I highly recommend looking at there jewellery.

Thank you to Tally Tiger for the jewellery, I really appreciate it.

YSL Rouge Volupté Lingerie Pink Review

Hey Lovelies, I also won this lipstick in Gemma's-Miss Makeup Magpie giveaway, I've never tired anything from YSL but I've always heard great things about this brand so I was so excited to try it. A huge thank you again to Gemma for this lipstick and go look at her amazing blog.

First of all I just love the packaging it's in a gold casing with YSL in circles, it just makes it look very expensive and luxurious.

The shade I got was Lingerie Pink it's a light barbie pink colour, it's very wearable but it does look a little too pale on me so I like to wear another lipstick or lipgloss on top.

The lipstick is very moisturising, creamy and glossy and glides on effortlessly and feels lovely on the lips.

The lipstick is quite long lasting and lasts a few hours on me.

YSL lipsticks are quite pricey at £24.50 that's why I never bought there lipsticks because I couldn't afford to but these lipsticks are worth the money and there's some other shades I want to try.

Overall I really like these lipsticks there such a lovely formula and there is a range of colours and the packaging is luxurious.

Have you tried any of the YSL lipsticks what do you think to them?

MAC Archie's Girs Blush in Cream Soda

Hey Lovelies, I know I'm a little late to talk about this blush from MAC's Archie's Girls collection but never late than never, I won this blush in a giveaway by the lovely Gemma from Miss Makeup Magpie, she's so kind and has a great blog so go check it out.

This blush is from the Betty range, I think the packaging is really cute it has a character picture of Betty with Archie in a love heart, it's a nice change for MAC to have the white packaging but it get's more grubby easier than the normal sleek black packaging.

The blush is a peachy shade it does have slight shimmer running through it but it isn't noticeable when you apply it to your cheeks, it's a great for the spring and summer months to give you a nice flush of colour.

This blush is perfect for fair skin tones and is very natural looking, the downside is I don't think it will be suitable for darker skintones because it is a light peachy blush so it's less likely to show up on your skin.

The blush isn't the most pigmented with first swipe but it is buildable to get the intensity you want.

Cream Soda is a satin formula blush so it's very soft and silky on the skin and it last a long time on me which is great I love long lasting products.

Overall I think it's a great blush and I really love wearing it and if you can still get your hands on it I would recommend you getting it.

I just want to say a huge thank you to Gemma for this blush.

Have you tried this blush what do you think to it?

Sheffield Bloggers Meet Up ♥

Hey Lovelies, on Saturday I went to the blogger meet up in Sheffield at Meadowhall. It was all organised by the lovely Rachel, Caroline and Charlotte so I want to say a huge thank you to them for this event. This was my first meet up and I had a lot of fun.

We all met at Handmade Burger Co and I was greeted by Rachel and she showed me my table with a a big goodie bag on the table, I couldn't help it I had a look straight away I was so excited to see what was in it.

Charlotte made these cute little personalised name tags that said our name and blog on.

The Handmade Burger Co were very generous and let all the bloggers have a free burger, side and refillable drinks. I got a chicken burger with cheese and chips, it was so yummy but I couldn't eat it all, so thank you to Handmade Burger Co for the free meal.

I got to know lots of new bloggers and loved talking to Marina, Sally, Hannah and Mel on my table they were all so lovely.

Here's some pictures of the bloggers :)

I'm so glad I got to meet you all, sorry if I didn't get much of a chance to talk to you.

Then we went off to Lush, they went through all about their products, first we got to play with the Fun dough it's like play dough that you can use in the bath, as a body wash and even on your hair and comes it in a few bright colours.

They then talked about there Emotional Brilliance range, which is a great range you can use the product on your eyes, cheeks or lips and they are all named different emotions. They have a wheel and you pick three colours, Rachel did this and then it can tell you your strength or weakness, your subconscious and your aspirations, you can play it online so click here to have a go. Then they talked about the colour supplement that you can use as a foundation or mix with a moisturiser for a tinted moisturiser, the face powder to use over the colour supplement, a cream bronzer and a highlighter to give you a glow on your face or under your brow bone. They also talked about there Eyes Right Mascara. All there makeup range is also natural like the rest of their products.

We got told a bit about some of the natural ingredients they use in their products.

They then talked a bit about the fragrance range and they did a little test with Frances to find which fragrance she liked best.

We also had a talk about the face masks and what face mask is best for your skin type.

The people at Lush were really nice and very informative about their products.

Then here's what I got in my goodie bag.

Lot's of great products that I'm excited to use.

I just want to say a huge thank you to Rachel, Caroline and Charlotte for organising this amazing event. Handmade Burger Co for the free meal. Lush for the free products and talking to us about their products. Then the companies for all these free lovely products.

I love the blogging community everyone is so kind and supportive of each other.

17 Doll'd Up Mascara Review

Hey Lovelies, I may not be blogging as much this week and next week I have a deadline for all my work to be in by next week so I need to focus on getting it done but I will try to blog when I can. Here's a review for you.

I got this mascara a few weeks ago and have been using it ever since and I absolutely love it.

This mascara was only £2 with a Boots voucher I got which is a bargain, the normal price is £6.29 which is a good price.

The mascara claims to provide 24 hour curl, it does give you a curl but it doesn't last that long, it lasts a few hours on me.

My lashes aren't that very long and this is a great mascara for separating and lengthening my lashes.

The packaging is very sleek and cute, I love the red and black together and the little bow on it.

Mine is in brown/black because there was no black left in any of the Boots I had been in but it is still very dark and pigmented.

As you can see the brush is like a comb with lots of bristles that is perfect to coat every single lash.

It doesn't clump your eyelashes which is another bonus, I hate when mascara clumps.

The only downside to this mascara I think is that it's not very volumizing so I use another mascara so I have great lashes.

Overall I think it's an amazing mascara, I've used a few 17 mascaras and I really love them, I highly recommend buying it.
