*~Etude House Orgel Light Blusher in No.3 Highlight~*

This is my first purchase from Etude House, actually from any Korean brand for that matter and I'm absoutely thrilled with it. Everything I could want from highlighter is in this gorgeously detailed compact.

This is the 'highlight' shade in the Orgel Light blush range and it's baked with 5 gradient like hues. Mixed together makes the perfect glowing pearly sheen to highlight your face. The texture is on the smooth side and easy to blend. Keep in mind that this is reflecting pearl and not shards of glitter. I'm happy I found a highlighter that fits my pale skin perfectly. I would love to see how it works on other skin tones though.

Overall very impressed and I need to try out other products from this brand. :)

Purchased from Ebay at $17.08 USD which is around £11.80 inc P&P.

Not beauty related but.. I just wanted to show everyone a tray cake me and my son made. Yep imagine the mess. Complete with strawberry frosting, sprinkles and marshmallows.

Volturi Twilight Labyrinth Loose Eye Shadow in Lover

Twilight Beauty by DUWOP.
First off this loose eyeshadow is freaking incredible, I couldn't say a bad word about it.
It's intense, has the most beautiful metallic sheen to it and you couldn't get more pigmented.
'Lover' I would describe as a jewel purple toned, deepened magenta.
The consistency is very creamy and applies like if it was wet but obviously it isn't. Blending is also a breeze. It's like say, recently liquefied crushed metal.

Purchased at ASOS for £5.50

Superdrug The Little Red Tin & Lil Pic

Picked up in Superdrug for £1.00 and this seems to be the newest in the 'Little Tin' range and of course I love red.
As you can see this lip balm is strawberry scented and you can smell it as soon as you open the tin. I was hoping it was going to be a bit tinted, but it's not at all.
The texture is slippery and could be slightly greasy for some. On the lips it appears a little glossy but nevertheless is moisturising and does the job.

A little picture of me wearing one of my favourite lipsticks, which is Lime Crime D'Lilac.
This lipstick is soo lilac and I've never had a lip colour that's this lilac! Read my review here.

Rimmel Vinyl 1000 Carat Lipgloss in 240 Star Asset

Just uploaded pictures and found out it isn't on the Rimmel website any more and I only got it from Boots recently. Why? Ahhh! I'll have to double check some drugstores soon enough.

I was thinking what a great cheaper alternative this is to MAC Dazzleglasses, just without the stickiness.

The shade is 'Star Asset' and is a light rosy pink with mega reflecting sparkles.

Now the first thing you will notice is when you open the tube, the smell hits your nose...think of 'orange sherbet' is the best way I would describe it. I'm telling you it smells absolutely gorgeous and without any horrid taste. Consistency is not thick but neither thin, you can feel the sparkles slightly but it isn't really gritty. I think this lip product is very comfortable to wear and pleasing to use.
Longevity isn't the best, but it does wear off evenly and it's totally easy to reapply. Applicator is a lip brush.

Vampiress Beauty Randomness 14

Stargazer Pressed Powder in Orange- Which a freaking bright eyeshadow, and so bright my camera wouldn't pick it up. Nicely pigmented but may be a bit chalky for some.

The Body Shop Body Mists
£7.00 each and I love them, I currently have Cassis Rose and Sparkling Apple and will be looking out for some more because these are so lovely and refreshing. These two scents don't seem to be on the website, hope they haven't gone!

Bionsen Japanese Spa Minerals Deodrant - 100% Aluminium free, smells like intense lingering lemons and stings like something else! I must be allergic to a natural deodorant, weird huh? I'll stick to the likes of Dove and Sure.
Purchased at Boots for £3.19

Avon Ultra Colour Rich Mousse Lipstick SPF15 in Champagne- A gorgeous glowing caramel nude, very flattering. The texture is creamy and very hydrating. Has a slight fruity smell, which is nice. £7.00 usually but they're on offer for £3.00.

17 Lip Liner in Fawn- A real peach toned nude and it's very hard to find a true nude lip liner at this price. Very soft and easy to apply and you can tell how nude it is, swatched on my pale skin.
£2.49 at Boots.
