Thank you very much to Leighton Denny for gifting me with the 3 colours above. I have already used the orange and its such a gorgeous colour. The formula is great and has stayed on my toes for ages.

At first I wasn't too sure about this BLUE lipstick I received from Colour Chase but I am secretly a little bit in love. I feel like an ice queen and just wish I was brave enough to wear it out! 

I will be doing some separate posts on the goodies I picked up at BLFW from Didi's Boutique and Verity Anne Clothing

Playboy Makeup

I was recently sent some samples of Playboy Makeup* to take part in their Pin Up Challenge. This is the first time I had come across Playboy make up but knowing what a massive brand they are, I was very excited to try. 
I was sent a sparkly bronze nail varnish in the shade Billionaire  a baby pink lipstick in Bubblegum Pink and a lengthening black mascara. First impressions were great, I love the glitzy boxes on the outside and the matte black packaging inside. I used these products for a make up look which you can see below.

The nail varnish is good quality and easy to apply. I love a bit of glitter so with a few coats of this, it really adds a glamorous touch. You can use it on its own and add a couple of coats for a nice even colour or just use one coat over your favourite nail shade to add a bit of sparkle.

The lipstick is extremely moisturising and creamy so is a dream to apply and doesn't feel at all drying. The light pink shade is quite light for my skin but I surprisingly liked it. Its gorgeously girly and even tastes like roses which is a nice little perk. 
The mascara is great for everyday looks, the wand really separates lashes so doesn't clump at all. With one quote it is quite subtle, but with a couple more it really defines and elongates the lashes for a beautiful pin up look. I personally prefer a mascara where a little more product comes on the wand to get a thicker look but this is perfect for no make up days.


Here is the look I created, let me know what you think. I am not sure where you can buy Playboy Makeup but I found a good selection on this website www.directcosmetics.com/browse. You can also check out their Twitter page and they will be more than happy to help twitter.com/PlayboyMakeupUK

Sunkissed Self-Tan Mousse

Right there's no beating about the bush here, I am just going to come right out and say it. Sunkissed Dark Self-Tan Mousse* is hands down the best fake tan I've ever tried! 

I literally have no bad words to say. Sunkissed self tan applies so smoothly and isn't streaky at all. It smells lovely and tropical like coconuts, which makes me feel a little bit more like I'm on holiday. Some of you will be glad to hear that it doesn't have that biscuit fake tan scent which everyone hates (although I secretly don't mind it). The colour is absolutely perfect, very natural and not orange at all. However the dark tan is very dark which is brilliant for me but if you have pale skin I would stick to the medium. Admittedly most days I cannot be bothered to apply fake tan, but I am so in love with the colour it leaves me, I actually want to apply it all the time!


https://www.sunkissedbronzing.co.uk/catalog/fake-tan/sunkissed-self-tan-mousse-dark-bronze-200ml £4.99
https://www.sunkissedbronzing.co.uk/catalog/fake-tan/sunkissed-application-mitt £3.99

Another great thing about this tan is that it lasts for days and doesn't come off in patchy places. Sunkissed tan is a winner for me and I will definitely be buying lots more bottles when I run out. I know you can't think it can get much better but wait until you hear about the price. You can buy it in Superdrug for £3.99 and I saw it in Primark at the weekend for £2.90, which I had to really resist myself from buying as I still have loads in the bottle. 

Sorry about the unflattering photo of my legs but can you believe the colour

If your a lover of fake tan then you definitely need to give this one a go. You can purchase it online on the Sunkissed website here www.sunkissedbronzing.co.uk.

Thanks for reading

P.S. I am going on holiday next week so I'm not sure about what the blogging situation might be yet. But hopefully I will pick up a good natural tan!

Bourjois So Laque Glossy Nail Varnish

You may have seen a few weeks ago I picked a couple of nail varnishes from Superdrug in a 3 for 2 sale. So here is the third and final one which is from the Bourjois So Laque Glossy range in the shade Adora Bleu. This baby blue polish caught my eye straight away and again, just had to have it!

www.superdrug.com/Bourjois/Bourjois-So-Laque-Glossy-Nail-Polish-Adora-Bleu £5.99
I haven't tried any varnishes from this range before but I was very happy with my purchase. It is thick and the colour is solid so it applies very well. The varnish is smooth and you can probably get away with just applying one coat if your in a rush, although two does look a lot better. I would say this is a very good quality nail varnish, definitely one of the best I've used and the colour looks exactly the same on as it does in the bottle. Its a beautiful soft cornflour blue shade which looks gorgeous in the summer and is a little bit different. Even though it is blue, which can be quite scary, its not bright or in your face. The pastel shade is subtle and can suit any occasion. 
I didn't leave it on for 10 days which it promises but the varnish has brilliant staying power and still looked great, with no chipping, a week later when I took it off and changed it. It does what it says on the bottle and leaves a lovely glossy finish without a top coat. Again I did use this on false nails so I can't comment on natural nails but I am sure it is just as good. This gets a massive thumbs up from me and I am definitely going to buy more shades from this Bourjois range. 

Thanks for reading

5 Product Face Challenge

At the weekend I attempted the 5 product face challenge, where you try to make up your face the best you can using only 5 products. It was a little bit of a mission, I'm not going to lie, but I got there in the end. To find out what products I used and how I got on please watch my video below. 


Thanks for watching

Red Herring Backpack

Backpacks seem to be all the rage at the moment and don't seem to be going anywhere. I wasn't in any rush to join in with this trend and if I'm being honest, I'm still not overly keen. And here comes the massive however... However I saw this one in Debenhams a few weeks ago and just had to have it. 
Similar www.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/
This one by Red Herring is a cream boucle stitched design with patent cream edging and faux leather straps. It is definitely not your typical back pack, more on the posher, girly side and it reminds me of something from the 90's. Its boucle/tweed material is very 'Clueless' if you know what I mean. This is the main reason I fell in love with it. Another amazing bonus is that with backpacks you feel so free. Honestly it sounds strange but to not be weighed down on one shoulder by a handbag is a dream. The weight is evenly distributed on your back, which means it feels lighter and there's nothing under your arm, so walking is much more comfortable. 
The main reason I don't like backpacks are that they are very inconvenient. When in a shop you have to take it off your back, hold it with one hand, undo the clip, pull out the strap and then root around for your purse. Then shove it all back in, throw it back on your back and then grab your shopping. This is proving very timely and a lot of hassle for me. Also when your walking along I am always scared someone is going to rob me from behind and I wouldn't even know. Although with this one it has got a hard pull strap to undo which I would like to think I would feel if someone tried to get in. Just to be on the safe side I only wear it in the town where I live, I don't think I would go somewhere busy like London. 

Overall I love my new backpack and I have been getting a lot of use out of it. I got this for an absolute steal at £10.50 which is the main reason I bought it. Had it been full price at £32 I would have just walked away. 

Thanks for reading
