Harry Potter London Studio

Hey Lovelies, hope your all having a nice day. It's not a long post today but I thought I would share my experience at the Harry Potter Studio with you.

If you didn't know I went to the Harry Potter Studio on Monday and I filmed and took pictures while I was there and I thought I would share it with you all. 

It was amazing I loved every minute of it and if you ever get the chance you should go visit it, so here's some of my photo's of the day.
Hope you enjoyed.

L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Collection Privee Cheryl Nude

Hey Lovelies, hope your all having a nice day, sorry for not blogging as much recently I've just been quite busy but I will try to blog more again.
I've had this lipstick for a couple months but I'm only just getting round to review it. I saw this on Velvetghosts video and it looked so stunning on her so I wanted to try it and I do love a good nude lipstick. I also love Cheryl Cole I think she's amazing and she always looks gorgeous so this was another reason for me wanting this lipstick.

There's quite a few nudes in this collection by other celebrities and I really want to try more of them. The other nudes are by Eva, Juilanne, Doutzen and Frieda, there's a nude to suit all skin tones.

The Cheryl nude I have is a pinky nude and it's such a perfect nude for me, it's not too light so it doesn't wash me out, which is often a reason I don't like wearing nude lipstick but I love this shade.

The lipstick is really pigmented, moisturising and long lasting on the lips.Which I really like in a lipstick.

This nude it's perfect to wear with a smokey eye but you could also wear it with a natural look and it will still look nice.

I have been loving wearing this lipstick and Revlon Peony lipgloss combo, it goes together really nicely and I will be doing a review of the lipgloss soon.

The packaging is really nice and sleek, which I also really like.

The lipstick costs £8.19 which I think is a reasonable price and  I've seen you can get it cheaper online if you don't want to pay that price.

Overall I think it's a great lipstick and highly recommend it as it will be a nice nude for most people and I've always loved l'oreal lipsticks there a great brand.

Have any of you tried the nude collection, what do you think to it?

Beauty Life Tag

Hey Lovelies, hope your all having a nice day, I wanted to do a tag post seen as I've been doing a lot of product reviews and wanted to change it up, I'm going to be doing the TMI tag soon on my YouTube so I was looking and couldn't really find any tags I wanted to do, so I thought I would create one and here it is.
1. How long does it take to apply your makeup?
When I'm going to college it takes me about half an hour but when I'm not in a rush it takes about 1 hour. If I'm going out at night it can take 1-2 hours as I like to spend more time on it.

2. What made you get into beauty?
This is tough one to answer as my mum never really wore makeup or talked to me about beauty. When I was at schools girls started to wear makeup and I wanted to. Then I started watching YouTube videos and reading blog posts and it made me more interested in beauty and I started buying more products and experimenting. I just love beauty and creating different looks.

3. What is the most amount of money you have spent on a beauty product?
I have mostly drugstore/highstreet products and buy high end occasionally or get them as presents but the most I have probably spent is about £20 but I also don't like spending a lot of money on beauty products as you can get cheaper alternatives and you can spend the rest of the money more wisely on something important that you need.

4. One product you can't live without?
For me I would probably say mascara as I have short eyelashes and mascara makes a lot of difference to my eyes.

5. Favourite overall brand?
This is a tough one as I have products from lots of different brands but I would probably say MAC as I've tried quite a few products from them and I love a lot of there products and they have everything you need.

6. Would you rather wear the wrong foundation shade or have lipstick on your teeth?
I would say lipstick on my teeth as if someone tells you or you notice, you can take it off but if your wearing the wrong foundation shade it will be harder to correct.

7. Do you take your makeup off properly or use a makeup wipe?
I'm not the best beauty blogger in this respect as I do use a makeup wipe to take my makeup off but I do use micellar solution as well but I need to have a better regime.

8. When applying a full face of makeup, what one item could you do without wearing?
When I wear a full face of makeup I love wearing foundation, eye makeup and lipstick so I couldn't not wear them so for me I would say blusher because for a long time I didn't wear it and my cheeks are quite pink anyway so I don't really need it.

9. Some beauty products on your wishlist.
There hasn't really been much I've been wanting but I would say the Naked 3 but it is a lot of money and don't know if I would invest in it and the Revlon Balm Stains, I love the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains so I really want to try the new balm stains.

10. Do you have makeup free days?
I wear makeup the majority of the time but days when I'm not going anywhere or just visiting family I won't wear makeup but I do feel a lot more confident and comfortable when I wear makeup.

That is it for the questions, I hope you enjoyed it and found it interesting and I tag you all to do it, leave a comment down below or tweet me at @ashleighcarrxx if you do the tag would love to see your answers.

Specific people I'm going to tag are:

Bourjois Cream Blush in Rose Tender

Hey Lovelies, hope your all having a nice day, I also got this blush from lovely Alessia, I had heard so many good things about these blushes so I wanted to try them.
Bourjois is a quite popular brand but I've not tried many things from them, I love their healthy mix foundation though it's such a nice foundation.

When these blushes first came out, nearly everyone bought them but I've only just got it and I absolutely love it and get the hype about them.

I have the shade Rose Tender which is a pinky peachy shade that gives a nice natural flush of colour and a nice glow. This shade will be great for all year round.

These blushers are the cream to powder which I've never tried before but I think is great, I'm more of a powder blush type a person but have cream blushes, so this is a nice alternative.

I just use my finger to apply the blush and blend them in but you could use a brush. The texture of the blush is silky and soft and it's really easy to blend.

The blushers are only £7.99 which is a reasonable price and the other shades look great and I think they will suit pale to medium skin tones.

Overall I think these are great blushers that I have loved wearing and I'm so glad I got to try this blush and I definitely want to try more.

What do you think to the Bourjois cream blushers?
