London Fashion Week | #WhatIWore.

In honour of London Fashion Week I decided to show you all what I wore to my very first #LFW experience. Although we (my friend Zeineb and I) missed the show we still enjoyed our afternoon socialising with other bloggers at the Roof Top Bar overlooking the beautiful London skyline. After all the hustle and bustle we treated ourselves to a cheeky burger at GBK, it was well worth the cold walk for sure!

LINZI SHOES | #LoveLinzi SS15 Press Event

I had the pleasure of attending the #LoveLinzi SS15 Press event yesterday with the lovely Zaineb (founder of Blogging Gals)

We had love struck eyes looking at all these beautiful shoes, it was shoe heaven. Linzi’s shoes are all affordable, on trend and great quality! I have a few pairs on my wish list already, just waiting for pay day to come around.

Thanks to Zaineb, here are a few sneaky peaks at (some of) the upcoming Spring/Summer range. Some of which have already been launched in store so check out the Linzi website  to snap up a few pairs before they sell out!

My personal faves have to be the HETTI & ROSEMARY in literally every colour! They are perfect for work and casual days in the summer. I’m also loving the barely there scrappy sandals JAMI, in every colour too! You can never go wrong with the simple but statement heels, especially at such a good price.

THANK YOU to everyone at the #LoveLinzi press event, I had a great time eyeing up the beautiful shoes!

Another thank you to Zaineb for bringing me along!

Review | Bourjois Velvet Lipstick

IMG_6436Hey girls,

So I have been dying to tell you all about my new fave matte lipsticks by Bourgois! They have been out for a little while now and have only just launched another three shades which I have yet to get my hands on.

You are probably all familiar with the liquid lipsticks that dry matte, there are so many on the market right now but I assure you, nothing compares to this little gem! I am a huge fan of matte lipsticks and  have tried a whole bunch. I always find that liquid to matte lipsticks dries out my lips a bit too much. Then when I reapply it just gets all flaky and doesn’t look nice at all. Another problem I’ve had with other brands is that once you swipe on the lipstick and go over it, it takes off the colour again. Not very pratical when your in a rush.

Back to this ah-mazing new lipstick.. Bourjois velvet matte. *angels sing* This is my dream matte lipstick in a little cute tube. I always liked the look of bourjour products but I’ve only ever tried their chocolate bronzer which was in every girls make up bag back in school! Well these matte lipsticks now come in a range of 8 beautiful shades. Theres the red shades, pinky shades and nude shades. I have yet to try the new nude shade but I will get my hands on it soon.

I picked up two shades red and bright pink.

IMG_6442

Right | Red, Personne ne Rouge. Left | Pink, Pink Pong. 

I chose this red shade as it was the closest to a ruby woo blue tone shade. The best kind of true red every girls NEEDS in their make up bag. These are soo pigmented and really do show up on the lips as they are in the tube. I was so impressed with how hydrated my lips felt even after a long day. The longevity of these is also a plus, I can go a whole day without the need to reapply. Even after taking the lipstick off you are left with a stain. The only bummer about these lipsticks is the colour range! I hope in time they do bring out more shades.

I give the Bourjois Velvet Lipsticks an 8/10 for their amazing colour pay off, long staying power and a matte formula that doesn’t dry out your lips at all (brownie points). I just hope they bring out more colours soon! 

 

You can purchase them at most boots and super drug stores and other on lie retailers. Here is a link to purchase them online. 

 

Until next time ladies, I hope you have a lovely week 🙂

Lip Product Addicts Tag

Hey lovelies,

I am back with another lip product post with a little twist. This is the “lip product addict” tag (that was a mouthful lol). I hope you enjoy this post. My next post will not be lip product related I promise! I am open to any post suggestions too 🙂

 Here goes..

IMG_3611

1. Favourite balm/treatment?

My favourite lip balm at the moment is by Nivea the vanilla scent, purely for the smell * heart eyes * .. oh, and its moisturizing on the lips!

 2. Best eye-catching red?

 The BEST red has to be Ruby Woo! It looks amazing on anyone and everyone. The perfect red shade for day and night in my opinion.

3. Best luxury and best drug store?

 I don’t even have any “luxury” lip products. A non drugstore lipstick I do have (apart from mac) is a Nars lipstick in the shade Valparaiso, a dark red/berry. This was my go-to berry shade in the winter. It stayed matte and non drying all day too!

Now for drugstore lipsticks I cant decide between the Revlon Matte Colourburst *heart eyes* and the Bourjois Rouge edition velvet lipstick *heart eyes x 2*. They are both amazing in there own ways! You must try them out for yourself girls! The only downfall I would say is the small colour range..hurry up and make more!!

4. Best MAC lipstick?

 Apart from Ruby Woo, my other FAVE is Up the Amp! I just love the purple shade as it goes well with my complexion and looks amazing with a tan. It isn’t your everyday pink or nude but I like to wear it when my outfit is plane and simple. Having a bold lip makes the outfit that much better!

 5. The most disappointing?

 The most disappointing lipstick I have is the Sleek Matte me. I purchased this out of curiosity. I hadn’t heard or seen any reviews so I thought I would give it a go. I picked up a summery coral colour ‘party pink’. I love the packaging though. When I applied this onto the lips it was hard to get a nice solid colour. Every time I swiped the brush over my lips it would take off the previous coat. I didn’t bother with it again after that.

 6. Liner, yes or no?

 I used to wear eyeliner every single day. But now I only use liner on a night out if I can be bothered to perfect the winged look. I’m usually running late on a night out so I give liner a miss.

 7. Best gloss?

I don’t really wear glosses although I am trying to get into them. I love the nude/pastel pink look at the moment. The best gloss I do have is the Clarins instant light natural lip perfecter (another mouthful). Its lovely alone and on top of lipstick.

 8. Something extra?

I think I am starting to get a little obsessed with lip liners. I have one too many nude liners and a few other staple shades. I tend to use the nude/pink colour all over my lips. I love the matte finish it gives and it lasts for hours without drying my lips!

I could talk about lip products for hours! Let me know if you have tried any of these or anything you would recommend 🙂

Spring Addition | Top 5 Mac Lipsticks

Hey lovelies,

Spring is upon us now, finally! Eek, I Cannot wait till the weather warms up a bit more so I can get into my summer dresses 🙂

As well as a summer wardrobe I like to switch up my make up for the warmer months too. A girl can never have too much make up aye!

Here are my favourite spring/summer MAC Lipsticks. Some are from last summer and some are new for me. These are my go to lipstick shades I gravitate towards. Depending on what I’m wearing I choose a shade to compliment and bring a pop of colour to an outfit.

Click the name of the lipstick for direct links! 🙂

Up the amp 

First up is my favourite purple shade, I bought this when I went to Miami last summer. Looks amazing with a tan! I have a thing for purple shade lipsticks

Candy yum yum 

This next lipstick also looks amazing with a tan. It’s bright, almost flouresent pink shade. Looks scary at first but once you have this on you’ll love it. I chose this shade when my outfit is plain so my lipstick is the pop of colour to bring an outfit together.

Spirit  

No collection is complete without a perfect nude shade! I love nudes all year round, you can wear it whenever with whatever! I found my PERFECT nude shade to compliment my medium skin tone a few months ago. I wear it to death already. Nudes go perfectly with a statement outfit.

Chatterbox 

I think this was my very first mac lipstick. A pretty pink is always a must in a make up collection. I have fallen back in love with pretty pink shades. It is so easy to wear. Sometimes I dab a bit of pink over a nude shade to make it lighter.

IMG_0265IMG_3505

Ruby woo

I saved the best till last. The perfect red shade that I’m sure every girl has (and if you don’t you NEED this). Red is also a colour to wear all year round! It is also a perfect shade to put on if your outfit is laid back. Even on those days when your outfits rubbish, throw a bit of ruby woo on and you are good to go! A red statement lip deffinately makes an outfit.
