Bioderma Sensibio Crealine H2O Solution Micellaire - Review

'The Bioderma dermatological laboratory proposes dermo-cosmetic products for each skintype. Based in Lyon, France, they develop and closely collaborate with dermatologists and renowned institutional research centers to bring dermo-cosmetic products.'

An innovative, scientific approach
"BIODERMA believes that temporary relief alone is insufficient in treating most skin problems. Consequently, it offers a holistic, corrective solution for each skin type. Through enabling skin to achieve a sustainable recovery of its original wellbeing, we allow it to restore its natural balance."

Bioderma Sensibio H2O Solution in particular has been taking the beauty industry by storm and so I had to try it out after reading so many rave reviews. I was also on the lookout for a effective yet gentle makeup remover I could use before full cleansing.

Studded STUD At Zara! Shoe Haul

Two things I never thought I'd buy, a lower heel or a flat shoe! Yes I do own emergency flat shoes but they never really see the light of day! Or I only ever wear them when I have to be a tourist in another country! Hahaha, guess it comes to show you never know when you might change what you like or wear in the future!

Point to be made - the intention of buying these new flats and lower heels is if I do go away on holiday or something I have a pair of funky or cute looking shoes without destroying my feet in high heels.

I'm also most definitely enjoy incorporating studded detail into my wardrobe, I've noticed them almost everywhere and Zara where I very rarely shop has happened to catch my eye quite alot lately. Oh and not to forget pointy toe shoes are my most favourite style of all time to wear! Like these here.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in 'Medium Deep'

MAC describes this as: "A luxurious domed face powder with minerals, slowly baked to provide a dimensional yet natural-matte finish. Provides perfect low coverage. Use to set and fix foundation or as a touch-up throughout the day".

There are 8 natural shades available as setting powders and with the exception of 2 other shades being classed as bronzers. In the last year and a half I've been through two of these; one in the shade 'Dark' and the current one in 'Medium Deep'.

Loving Right Now: MAC Gingerly Blush - FOTD

There is one blusher that I cannot get enough of this past two weeks! It's always been one of my favourites, but I have so many blushers I always seem to forget this one as I rotate so much, but this time round I just kept reaching for it - MAC Blush in 'Gingerly', It's actually quite a versatile blush colour that will suit all skintones and as the weather has been a little warm it's really nice paired with bronzer.

Perfect blusher paired with a Nude/Light pink lip colour and smokey eye! Read more to see what products I used for this look.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter Strawberry Shortcake - Review, Photos, Swatches

Yup I'm late on the band wagon with these Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters but when they first released alot of them sold out so fast I never got the chance in the beginning to pick up the particular colours I liked. I kind of forgot about them for a while until I had a ridiculous amount of Boots points to spend in store and 'Strawberry Shortcake' lip butter was one of the products I picked up.

Revlon claims/says these lip butters are:

- Hydrating mango, shea and coconut butter formula boosts lip moisture by 156%
- Pampering gel formula provides super charged hydration and glides on lips buttery smooth
- Sheer to medium colour with buttery shine
- Available in 20 luscious shades (UK got around 14 I think)
- Buttery Balm + Shiny Color
- Buttery balm with beautiful shiny color to give you baby soft, healthy glowing lips 94% of women felt lips were softer, smoother, and instantly hydrated.

Shamballa Bracelets & Earrings by Tresor Paris

I've been eyeing up some 'Shamballa' bracelet pieces for quite some time, I never really got the hype around them apart from them being popular amongst celebrities such as Jay Z, Ciara, Lil Wayne and Karl Lagerfeld!  Plus to me they looked really sparkly on the arm so I liked them! There are different styles around but I opted for the pieces without the cord showing through the entire bracelet. It's predominantly all beaded crystal balls.

I've seen a couple of cheaply made ones and being totally honest it completely distracts the whole beauty and representation of the bracelets - plus it's not the best look when you lose the sparkle and highlight for something that's suppose to have it. Your own preference entirely! I also opted for a pair of earrings of the same ball style.

Inglot Freedom System Palette

This is the first time I'm venturing over to Inglot Cosmetics, I have to admit I am a high end brand snob - that doesn't mean I won't try anything else out but I pretty much most of the time spend my money on high end.

Anyway I was sitting with my Starbucks latte staring around and caught a glimpse of Inglot then wondering why I have never been in. It was empty, huge and really colourful; everything coordinated and in the right place all neat and tidy. So I casually strolled in to go and play...

Tangle Teezer

The traumatisation of hair brushing I faced as a child still stays with me today, my mummy trying to comb through my curls and tangles and me screaming at the top of my lungs in pain. Resulted in her giving up and giving me a boy cut. More traumatisation with the hair cut resulted in me always looking for ways to grow and keep my hair long and tangle free.

So to my delight I have come across the Tangle Teezer which actually works, I've used other brushes which claim to reduce tangling while brushing but I never had much luck with them. This pink beauty on the other hand is a life saver and I've loved using it so much this past week I've been telling everyone in my family about it. My 3 year old cousin had the biggest smile on her face when I used this magic brush that didn't hurt her hair!!! Sooo cute!

ELF Haul - A Small One

I've only ever once before made a purchase from ELF Cosmetics (Eyes, Lips, Face) where I picked up previously a brow kit, concealer brush, eye 'c' brush and powder brush. All of these were great little bits at such a bargain price. I especially get plenty of use out of my powder brush and so I decided I would order another one so I have a spare on hand. I also opted this time for the blush brush, brow wand and brow stencils.

Loving Right Now...

Topshop Peplum Tops, Embellished Collar Tops, Firetrap Controller Military Cardigan, Zara Flat Jewel Jelly Sandal, Giuseppa Zanotti Pumps, Diorskin Nude Tan Healthy Glow Enhancing Bronzing Powder, GHD Scarlet Deluxe Set - Read on to see everything I've bought and loving right now!

Peplum Tops:

I've fallen in love with peplum tops! Especially the ones Topshop has to offer! I picked up one embellished version and five simple cotton ones in magenta, blue, khaki, white and black. As long as you get the right fit and length they look so flattering, they are great for work, meetings or nights/dinners out paired with jeans, leather pants, skinny trousers or even over skirts and definitely a pair of high heels, a few accessories and perfect! I'll be keeping an eye out for other colours which might suit me and will be going back for grey, cream, red and hoping i can also find teal! I'm planning on customising some of them.

Green for Envy, Red for Mad & Blue for Cool!

I got a bit carried away with my blue and green eyeshadows from MAC's Hey Sailor Collection! I blogged about it here. The blush, eyeshadows and lipstick are all from the Hey Sailor Collection, the rest are permanent buys. It kind of went with my stripey green jumper so it all blended in.
