MUA: Things I’d Love To Try

Hi Beauties

I know I’ve been away for a while but my life has been kind of hectic recently, money and job worries mainly.

So in order to tackle these issues I decided to go to a local shopping centre with a PILE of CVs, whilst I was looking for work their were a few products from the MUA range that caught my eye.

The first item was the ‘Romantic Efflorescence Palette’, I was particularly drawn to the stunning shades of purple this palette holds, one is deeper toned than the other which will be perfect for a sultry night look, or a could wear both for an ombré eye look. The palette also sports some very wearable neutral toned shades, which I like to wear on those no-makeup- makeup days.

The second product is another eye shadow palette, this time it’s the ‘MUA Luxe Palette’ in ‘Mysterial. As you may or may not know I love rocking dark, vampy eye looks even in the daytime. I love the fact that this palette is metallic as it gives you a more dress up kind of look. I was also drawn to this palette because I think the contrast between the deep metallic black and the creamy pink shade would work beautifully on the eye.

Each time I go to the MUA web store I spend time drooling over this nail polish, ‘Honey Shine’ is a stunning shade, it’s a gold metallic with just a hint of a rose gold undertone. It’s a beautiful online exclusive and ‘Honey Shine’ will soon complete my MUA polish collection.

I love lip products and whilst I was browsing yesterday I managed to find the ‘Lip Switch Duos’, I tested all of them (at least I think I did), but only really liked three of them.

‘Crimson Ruby’ is more of a true red it’s the only one I found with the lipstick and a clear gloss as opposed to a coloured one. ‘Crimson Ruby’ did make me look a little washed out but I’ll find a way to make it work.
The next ‘Lip Switch Duo’ is ‘Coral Pink’ and it suits my skin tone beautifully, it’s not too bright and is just a few shades darker than my natural lip colour so it isn’t too ‘in your face’.
The third Is called ”Persian Plum’ I think it would work well with any skin tone, unlike ‘Crimson Ruby’ this one is more of a blue based red, which works beautifully with my skin tone and hair colour and doesn’t make me look washed out, if you wear this shade you’ll defiantly get noticed.

‘Holiday Wishes’ From Sinful Colors

Hi Beauties

As many of you know Revlon has always been my favourite nail polish brand, but for me Revlon is sometimes a little too expensive, polishes start at £6.00 and can sell for as high as £10.00 a bottle. When my budget can’t stretch to Revlon’s prices I can still get my polish fix, from none other than Sinful Colors, they have a fantastic formula, a huge array of shades to choose from and they only retail for £1.99 a bottle and I think you’ll agree that’s an absolute bargain.

Since Christmas is just around the corner Sinful Colors have bought out there ‘Holiday Wishes’ collection, which features stunning blue and gold based polishes that are perfect for the festive season.

‘All About You’ is a beautiful copper based gold glitter that will look amazing, adding sparkle to any outfit. The richer hues of red toned copper make this polish stunning for an evening get together.

‘Endless Blue’ is quite a bold cobalt blue shade, that in my opinion has a very casual feel to it, this polish would be perfect to wear when lounging around the house on Boxing Day watching reruns of old movies and blogging or vlogging about what you got for Christmas 2014.

IMG_3634.JPG

‘Ice Blue’ is by far my favourite shade in this collection, it is a deep blue base with flecks of silver micro glitter which remind my of a snowy night sky in Christmas Eve, Devine.

IMG_3635.JPG

‘Ice Dream’ seems to me to be the more casual counterpart to ‘Ice Blue’ it is still blue based with silver glitter but this time the blue is lighter, it reminds me somewhat of melting icicles.

IMG_3636.JPG

‘Cinderella’ is a sky blue, white based shade that is featured in this collection, it is one that I have had for nearly two years so it’s not exactly a new addition to the Sinful Colours range, however I can see why they included it, it’s a stunning shade that in my opinion is a winter must have.

‘Gilded’ is a deep blue based shade again with sliver micro glitter, it is not as dark as ‘Ice Blue’ yet not as light as ‘Ice Dream’, it is infact the perfect balance between the two and brings to mind the Christmas classic The Snowman, it just has that kinda feel to it.

Finally ”Gold Medal’ is a solid gold shade with somewhat of a metallic shimmer to it, it is in my opinion the most disappointing of this collection, although it is a pretty colour it just doesn’t feel very festive to me.

Autumn Oranges

Hi Beauties

I’m felting a little bit enter today and I’m back at the gym, yay 🙂

And October is approaching fast approaching and pumpkin orange nails will soon be all the rage.

China Glaze’s ‘Riveting’ is a beautiful burnt orange shade with a bright gold shimmer and the golden flecks of micro glitter finish this polish off perfectly.

IMG_3082.JPG

Revlon’s ‘Orange Blossom’ is part of their new parfumerie range, not only is the colour a striking balance between red and orange it also smells amazing.

IMG_3083.JPG

The next polish is again from Revlon and is called ‘Marmalade’ it’s a very subtle light orange shade which makes it very wearable whilst still giving your mani that pretty meant for fall look, plus it’s name is super cute.

IMG_3084.JPG

Sinful Colors ‘Courtney Orange’ looks like it could be the love child of ‘Riveting’ from China Glaze and Revlon’s ‘Orange Blossom’, it has a deeper more red undertone coupled with a stunning combination of a gold undertone and golden micro glitter, this one is a definite go to halloween polish for me.

IMG_3085.JPG

Rimmel’s ‘Tangerine Queen’ is a very true, bright orange. Not really one that I would have in my collection as it is a little too bright for my taste but it’s perfect for anyone who isn’t afraid to rock a statement mani.

IMG_3086.JPG

Finally ‘Beach Party’ from Models Own is an orange shade to wear with a tan or one that would suit a darker skin tone so that the neon tone can really pop, but I think this polish would still be great as a way to brighten up dull fall months and remind us that summer is never really that far away.

I am now going on an orange nail polish shopping spree oops :-p

Ravishing Rose Golds

Hi Beauties

I just got back from the gym and I’m feeling kinda down, I weighed in and let’s just say I weigh a lot more than what I thought I did :(.

I thought I’d cheer myself up by post my top eight rose gold polishes. ( I’m picky when it comes to rose gold).

The first polish is Essie’s ‘Buy Me A Cameo’ it’s a lovely colour but to me it’s more silver-y as opposed to te more classic pink rose gold undertone, none the less it is still a beautiful colour.

IMG_2606.JPG

The second is ‘Rage’ from Orly, which is more pink in tone than ‘Buy Me A Cameo’ but in my opinion it’s still too gold to be classed as a rose gold polish.

IMG_2607.JPG

The third is the first Sinful Colors polish I owned, ‘Mama San’ has a stunning pink undertone that let’s the metallic gold shin through beautifully. ‘Mama San’ is a definite go to polish for me.

IMG_2608.JPG

Zoya’s ‘Faye’ is such a stunning colour, it has the perfect balance of pink and gold which gives a beautifully eye catching colour.

IMG_2609.JPG

Maybellines’s ‘Rose Chic’ is a beautiful effects polish, it has a rose gold base with flecks of silver glitter, it looks amazing, I’ve never wanted a nail effects polish so much.

IMG_2610.JPG

The sixth rose gold polish to make it on to my list Is ‘Champers’ by Butter London, to my it seems to be a pretty gold colour with just a hint of pink, perfect.

IMG_2611.JPG

‘Gold Roses’ from Sally Hansen is a more orang-y toned rose gold that still looks beautiful as a summer mani.

IMG_2612.JPG

And lastly Max Factors ‘Sunny Pink’ has a very bold pink undertone, but in the right light hints of gold shin though , making this polish perfect for that casual rose gold mani.

Dazzling Copper Polish

Hi Beauties,

The weathers hot and sunny and I’m in the mood to blog, more to the point I’m in the mood to blog about nail polish but not just any polish, this post is going to be about my favourite copper polishes.

So get your drink and your sun tan lotion, hit the sun bed, relax and read on.

My first stunning copper polish is defiantly one of my faves it’s Revlon’s ‘Copper Penny’.

20140722-180958-65398305.jpg
As many of you know Revlon is my favourite polish brand, and this polish is simply stunning.

The second is ‘Harvest Moon’ from China Glaze, although the colour is beautiful and it has a very pretty name. In the past I have not had much luck with China Glaze formulas, they’ve been very hit and miss for me. It.

20140722-181513-65713192.jpg

Another polish I love Is from the magnetic range from Sally Hansen, it’s called ‘Kinetic Copper’ it has a stunning deep red toned colour and the magnetic aspect of the polish works fantastically and leaves your nails looking beautiful.

20140722-182018-66018519.jpg

This beautiful polish is by Barry M and is simply called ‘Copper’, this polish has more of a gold undertone as a posed to a red, copper tone like the polishes I have mentioned previously, but never the less it belongs on the list. Even though the colour is not quite what I would expect from a copper polish but it is by Barry M which is one of my favourite cosmetics brands every polish I have had from this range have been easy to apply, quick drying and long lasting, and no doubt ‘Copper’ will be exactly the same.

20140722-182932-66572585.jpg

The final copper polish I love is from wet and wild called ‘Rustic’ it’s a beautiful polish with more of an orange undertone as opposed to a red or gold. It has more of an earthy feel to it and it’s very ‘Rustic’ name suits it well

20140722-183319-66799472.jpg

I’m now going to drag myself off of my sun lounger and apply a pretty copper manicure.

Love, Hugs And Glossy Kisses,
