Sleek Blush in Rose Gold

Sleek blush in Rose Gold - 4.49 - Superdrug

Sleek has been on my 'must-have' list for as long as I can remember now. My cousin regularly buys beautiful shades of blush and as soon as she showed me this one, I knew I just had to get my hands on it. It's a beautiful shimmering pink that comes off quite coral on the skin with glitters of gold. Lets just take a moment to appreciate this blush.

I dunno why, but like most bloggers I have a favourite type of make-up and for me it's blusher. Followed closely by lipsticks (as you may have noticed if you've been reading my blog from the start!) I just can't get enough if them, coral, pink, red, you name it - I'd buy it!

This blush is probably my new favourite as I just love the shimmer it gives my cheeks. It's super pigmented and lasts quite a long time. If you don't want a lot of shimmer then you just apply a tiny bit to your face for a more natural glow. But to be honest I think this is quite a natural looking blush anyway, the colour is beautiful and there's only a little bit of glitter in it. I think it's quite small in packaging but it's only 4.49 which is good value for money (I think anyway). You can definitely say that this I love it!

Maybelline Baby Lips #2

I know I've already done a post on Maybelline Baby Lips, but I couldn't resist buying yet another one from the collection, and to be honest, who can blame me? The packaging is adorable and I love the hydrating and moisturised feel they leave on your lips. So, when I took a recent trip to Boots, I decided to add Peach Kiss, Intense Care and Hydrate to my ever expanding collection. The sad thing about this collection in particular is that there is only one more for me left to get. Luckily, they were on 3 for 2 so I couldn't stop myself from purchasing them again.

Hydrate and Intense Care are both a clear lip balm that are supposed to leave your lips feeling smooth and feeling more refreshed and hydrated. Peach Kiss is a soft, shimmering peachy-pink colour and has fast become my go to for my everyday make-up. Peach Kiss is the colour I tend to reach for most out of all the different balms, I leave it in my bag for an everyday use.

Overall, I'm so happy that Maybelline decided to launch these in the UK. Can't wait for them to release more!

What do you make of the Baby Lips collection?

September Wishlist

So September is officially here and I'm actually really pleased. This is the first year I've actually wanted A/W to come. I'm just super excited to snuggle up in bed watching movies like Harry Potter (what else!?), draping fairy lights around my room and most importantly, the clothes. Oh yes, I can't wait. There are so many items that are just adorable and I just need (read, don't need) this Fall. One thing I'm excited about is returning to university, and of course to return to university, I need a brand new wardrobe (and a make-up collection to match).

This fall it's all about colours and patterns. Who can resist a maroon a-line skirt? Not me. And I'll certainly be finding one as soon as pay day comes round. But until that glorious moment comes round, I've created a wishlist to drool over.

First up, Real Techniques Core Collection brushes. Now I know I'm really behind with the whole Real Techniques hype but I've decided I simply can't go any longer without them in my life. My friends have been bangin' on about these for God knows how long and I've given in. I need them in my life!

YSL. Can we take a moment to appreciate the packaging please? Such a thing of beauty. This colour is perfect for fall because of the shade of pink it is, it's like a rich, deep plum and this is what fall is all about.

Oh my goodness... This Sleek palette is probably the prettiest palette I've seen in a long time. Just look at those shades! Normally I wouldn't go for such dark colours on my cheeks, I like a rosy glow but nothing too dramatic but seeing as it's nearing Christmas, I just can't resist it. It's gorgeous.

Now I saw this dress on River Island and just knew it was 'me'. You know you have that style and just know when somethings 'you'. You know? I adore this dress and the colours are perfect for fall season too. I also love the cute little necklace that's attached. What I don't love? The price tag. Boo hoo.

Bourjois is something that has been on my wishlist for a while now, I love the look of all of their products but haven't gotten round to trying any (I know, you haven't got to tell me, shame on me) but people have been going mad about these colour boost lip crayons lately and I just feel like I need to check out the hype. I do adore this colour though.

Last but not least, this tiny little eyeshadow, which is also by Bourjois. The thing is is that it is a tiny product, and it's £6.99. However, this isn't going to stop me from purchasing it! I wouldn't necessarily use it as an eyeshadow either, I would use it as a highlight. What can I say, I'm sold.

What have you got on your September wishlist?
