Makeup Forever HD Blush ♡

While on holiday in Marbella, Spain I enjoyed stalking Sephora hypnotised by its brilliance. I wasn't intending on buying any makeup but that changed when I not only saw a Makeup Forever section but a Makeup Forever sale section! I picked up two of the HD Blushes, in #3 and #6. #3 was €15 and #6 was €13.50. 
#6 and #3

#6 and #3

I really like the formula of these blushes, I think they're creamy, quite long lasting and pigmented, especially #3 which I haven't worn yet (I need to find the best application method to avoid Coco the Clown cheeks) but I apply #6 on a MAC 188. It blends like a dream and is quite sheer but is buildable. Perfect for summer! I highly reccomend them, especially #6 because it's so dewy and summer-ready; I would buy them at full price too. I'm very eager to try other Makeup Forever products now and have a growing list of Cream blushers to try!

Available at Guru Makeup Emporium in the UK and Sephora Internationally

Hope you're all having a happy Monday! x

Quick Post!

I re-designed my blog because the previous, simplistic look really bored me lately. Also, in my next few posts I shall be experimenting with cameras to *try* and get a better quality image. That is all!

February Favourites!

This is slightly early as I have some free time so decided to do the post now rather than later!

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural 
I have been using this over Origins Vita-Zing (as recommended by TiffanyD). I really like the MSF to finish this and used it over my foundation too. I really like this and when I run out will almost certainly repurchase; although I'm not sure how I feel about the Vita-Zing. I'll probably review it seperately.

Juicy Couture; Peace, Love & Juicy Couture Perfume
I've really been reaching for this lately and have worn this most days of the month. It smells fresh and makes me daydream of Spring & Summer. The bottle is super cute too!

Nars Orgasm Blush
Possibly the most raved about blush ever however, there is no doubt as to why. It is an amazing, buildable pink with coral undertones. Its so smooth and pigmented and leaves the cheeks with a perfect amount of flush!

MAC Angel & Pink Plaid Lipstick 
Angel is a lovely natural pink that looks great with most looks. Quite moisturizing and a definite favourite.
Pink Plaid is a matte but it isn't too drying. It lasts for hours and is a beautiful mauvey pink.

Teenage Dream!

Finally, the Katy Perry for OPI is available in the UK (here). My package arrived and I was truly amazed by the colour. I only ordered Teenage Dream (might re-consider and buy Not Like The Movies). Teenage Dream is a  sheer but buildable glitter polish.  It has fine pink glitter and then larger, holographic, silver glitter. It is beautiful when it catches the light!

For those of you who don't want to shell out over £10 for a polish, you may want to take a look at Pink Fizz by Models Own. It has the pink glitter but no holographic glitter. I have been through a bottle of this already after obsessing over it around November/ December. It is a very close alternative for those of you who want the same look for less. (Also available here).

Cocktail Cosmetics & Hello Kitty!

On Sunday night, as I sat in bed having a look through Cocktail Cosmetics, I came across possible the best thing this year so far! After missing MAC's Hello Kitty Collection I am still pretty devastated until I found the Big Bow Lipstick for sale. I ordered it quickly on Sunday night at 9pm, and two days later it arrived! I am so excited by this purchase and completely in awe of the product.

The site I bought it from is I would definitely recommend purchasing from here as I received the product quickly and well packaged. The service was unbelievable actually! They have so many great discontinued MAC products as well as other brands such as NYX, Sigma Brushes, OCC, Lime Crime, Bobbi Brown and so many more!
