After slightly messing up my blog layout yesterday and wasting hours pretending I had a clue about HTML, I forgot about Face Mask Friday!
So I thought I'd ramble instead and show you all a few new things I've purchased in the last week or so, as I've been quite pleased with what I've been spending my pennies on.
Myface Mymix 'Glamorous' Fair Lip Gloss - £7.99
Now being a bit of a cheapskate (yes I admit it!) I don't normally spend £8 on a lipgloss that I'm not to sure of, however I was tempted with the Myface 'light, medium and dark' range and really did wonder if the 'light' shade would suit me more than any other lipgloss as I am quite pale.
I've worn it a few times and it's very blah when worn of it own, the typically 'people with pale skin don't tend to wear bold makeup' just very ordinary
However over lipstick it works perfectly...it some how just really suits my complexion worn this way. I'm not to sure how though!
Revlon Superlustrous 'Fire & Ice' Lipstick - £7.49
I did really want 'Cherries in the Snow' but it was out of stock, so I went for this instead... and I'm not to sure why! I only wear red lipstick at night when going out.
It really is a lovely lipstick but I have a feeling I won't be using it that often and more looking at it thinking how beautiful it is.
Oh, but I do quite like the clear plastic on the top of the cap, really handy for seeing all the Revlon shades I have...even if I only own 4 of them!
Revlon Scented Nail Polish 'Cotton Candy' and 'Peach Smoothie' - Out in March
Now I don't like showing PR samples before they have even been released (as I don't think it's far) however I actually found these on eBay being sold by a UK seller (that have sadly sold out of the now). So I thought it was worth trying them and saving some money as both only cost me around £6!
At first I loved that my nails were scented and was sniffing them like a weirdo....but the novelty soon wore off, and by soon I mean within 2 hours of painting my nails.
The scent does last on the nails...however you do have to have an up close sniff to actually smell the scent. I'm just glad I like both shades - nice nudes for spring!
Models Own Wah Nail Art Pen
'Black' - £6.00
The first one I bought was fault and made a right big mess, but I was soon sent another and all was good. Well my carpet wasn't... but that really is another story!
I have only used it a few times and quite like it so far, it can be a bit faffy though and I really don't think the brush is upto standard.
But I'm going to keep on using it, especially for polka dots and mini hearts and then write a review I think.
Max Factor Xperience Foundation '40 Light Ivory' - £9.99
Unlike most Beauty Bloggers I only try/buy a new foundation when the one I'm using runs out. So once my Max Factor Second Skin in Creamy Ivory was looking a bit on the low side I started swatching...trying to find a new foundation that would suit my quite pale skin.
I really didn't want to buy Second skin again (even though I love it) or even anything by Max Factor. However this shade was the lightest I could find in Boots and I must of swatched about 15 different foundations on the back of my hand - all claiming to be Ivory.
The best match I'm going to get I think and so weightless feeling, though I have only been using it for 2 days. So will have to write a review of it with photos of my what it looks like on the face at a later date.
...and a lovely early Valentines Day present!
I also got a lovely surprise from my boyfriend this week, with a beautiful new laptop bag. It is just so chic unlike most but so well padded. It can either be carried or used with a long detachable strap. I feel all business like when using it!
I'm definitely a lucky girl...
Ok, it wasn't much of a ramble, more an organized haul! If you would like any reviews please just ask.
