Coming to an E.L.F near you...

Hi guys! Hope every one's having a good week, mine's going amazingly so far! I got chosen by E.L.F to review their new lipsticks and I'm so excited!! They came today so I got stuck in straight away to bring you my review ASAP :)

So, here is goes....

Theses little beauties are the wonderful new colours! In order they are (L-R) Charming, Nostalgic, Captivating, Flirtatious, Sociable & Fearless.

Without Flash
With Flash (look how gorgeous Sociable is!)
I think what I was most surprised with about these lipsticks is how pigmented they all are! And I mean, ALL of them. With darker lipsticks, like Fearless, it's often the case that they don't come out the colour they look but oh boy, they do! Also, because its so cold out at the moment, my lips aren't in great condition so I was a little worried about putting them on, because I've got a cremesheen from Mac and it makes my lips look 10x worse! However, it wasn't even noticeable with these beauts! They're soo creamy and moisturising that they glide on for instant perfection!

For £1.50, I really don't see how you can go wrong and I'm finding it soo hard to chose a favourite! I love nude lips when I'm doing really dramatic eyes so Nostalgic is fantastic for that, Captivating is a gorgeous orange which is perfect for autumn, Flirtatious is going to be my go-to colour for everyday and Fearless certainly has the WOW factor!
To give you a clue to how they look on, here's some pics :)

First up, Charming - a matte, dusty rose colour. Near enough my natural lip colour so brilliant if you don't like to over-do it on the lips. It still gives off a lovely glossy finish and is moisturising so doing you good too!

Nostalgic - a gorgeous nude which would look great with dramatic, smokey eyes. A good reference for it would be E.L.F's natural nymph; it's a shade darker and whereas that one has a very matte finish, Nostalgic has a glossy finish.

Captivating - a gorgeous warm orange, perfect for autumn days! Looks great with brown eyes. don't be put off by the colour in the tube because it looks soo pretty on! Dare to be different! I've been wearing orange shades for weeks now and all I've got is compliments!

(It's like I'm Zoolander and I only have one look! haha) This one is called Flirtatious - It's such a pretty pink! Not so daring that it's noticable a mile off, but bright enough to make your lips to die for! I wore this out and the first thing my friend said when I saw her was "I love your lips!" *A very popular colour for celebs this time of year! check out Fearne Cotton, she seems to be wearing it all the time!
Sociable - the only one of the new colours with some shimmer to it! Personally I usually go for matte colours and add a shimmery gloss if wanted; however, this has pinky goldy flecks of shimmer and is so creamy and glossy already you'd never need a lipgloss again! Definitely a lipstick worthy of a night out on the town.

Last but not least, Fearless! And you have to be fearless to wear it! OH MY GOD, if you've ever wanted a pillar box red lippy, look no further! This is the only one you'll ever need! I want to upload every photo I took of me wearing it because it's so eye catching and stunning! All I need is a black wig and I'm Snow White! "...lips as red as blood..." Bingo!

I was hoping there would be a colour that I didn't like, or there'd be something wrong with it so I can tell you guys and it wouldn't make me look like I was saying how amazing it was just because I got sent them. But to be completely honest, I can't find a thing I don't like about them! If I was going to be really picky then I'd say that I'd prefer the tube to be black, not silver - but then it would look like it was from their studio line! So I really can't complain!

They are all priced seperately as £1.50 each and should be available to buy by the end of the week! E.L.F has just done a 40% off sale and are constantly being super lovely and giving Elfette's free P&P or free gifts so I'd definitely go check out their site :) It's

I am such a bad blogger! I've gotten addicted to the world of Beautylish and totally forgot about my blog! I can't remember what I've posted where and have gotten all confuzzled 0_0

Well, I've got a few looks to show you guys! It's been a while since I've done a look! There's one I missed out on showing you also, it was my skeleton for Hallowe'en! Nevermind... I'll post a pick anyway and also some pics of looks with some new products :D

AND hopefully another X-Men look too! I've done a few but I'm just not happy with any of them.

Maybe not in that order.... and I've bought sooooo much stuff! Ahh I can't wait to show you :)
Might post today if I have time, If not Friday :)

Pay Day Shopping!

I recently started a new job and it was my first pay day yesterday!! I've had the biggest smile on my face since, knowing there's money in my bank account!
To celebrate, I felt like spending some! So these are my lovely purchases, I haven't taken pictures of the clothes so I'm just going to use the ones I've found online (and one from glamour magazine)

First up the clothes... I seemed to have gone for a bit of a theme... black, grey and metallic!

When I first saw this I wasn't too sure about it, but I tried it on and loved it! It's got silver, gold and white metallic circles here and there and it's about a medium/large knit. I got it from TK Maxx (originally from Motel) and it was priced as £16.99 but there was a little whole in it so I got it for £15!

I also got a pair of black Levi's jeggings which I am totally in love with! Online they're $58 but in TK Maxx they were £19.99!

This pretty little number is from H&M and was £29.99. I saw it in this months Glamour Magazine and fell in love with it instantly! The only problem with it for me is that it's a high neck line, and my boobs aren't exactly small so I feel a little squashed in it! For that reason also it doesn't fall exactly how it's meant to but it still looks amazing, I just have to stand up straight!

whilst I was paying for my dress in H&M I spotted something sparkling out of the corner of my eye, soon to realise it was the MOST GORGEOUS NAIL POLISH EVER! They always have little things in baskets by the counter and that's what this was. There were three colours and I picked up two of them.

This one is called Kiss Goodnight and is a gorgeous shimmery dark grey colour which reflects silver in the light, the amount of shimmer in this polish is insane! H&M bring out different accessorise with Disney characters on them and this is one of them, The picture on the front of the bottle is of Minnie and Mickey Mouse kissing, N'aww....

This is the gorgeous colour that caught my eye! Ahhh I can't stop staring at it it's soo pretty! It's a clear gel with big facets of silver glitter and also small bits of silver glitter too! Here's a close up of the polish over Fearne Cotton's Silver...

These two colours are quickly becoming my favourite polishes at the moment! And for only £1.99 each I'm definitely going to have to look to see what else they've got! And for a clothing store I'm really impressed with the quality of the product. The polish is quite thick with really good colour pay off. I'd upload pictures of it on my nails but I have work at 7am (it's 12:20am now) and I'm not allowed nail varnish at work D':

However I'm sure it will feature as NOTD pretty soon!

Love & Peace x

Nail Varnish Frenzy!

Recently I've been addicted to buying nail varnish which SUCKS seeming I'm not allowed to wear it to work! Genuinely thought about quiting! Haha! Only for about a split second before I realized I actually NEED the money. Make-up is an expensive addiction...
So these are the nail varnishes I've collected out on my shopping trips in the last 3 weeks...

My first collection...  recently we had a TK Maxx open up on the isle of wight which i am THRILLED about! I keep finding amazing things like Pixi, Stila, O.P.I, Tigi, Pop, Benefit.... the list goes on! I picked up the gorgeous Pixi polish (no.15, a bright bright bright pink/purple!) for only £2.99! It is by far my current favourite polish! It's such a statement colour!
My sister Minxed my a while back and i had a 20% off voucher for New Look so i used it on the Nail Rock nail wraps (basically minx). Never Again. They would of been amazing if someone else did them, but I don't have the patience for things like this... I love nail wraps because you can get gorgeous effects like holographic or mirrored effect wraps and they last weeks on toe nails so I'd definitely say it's worth the money but get a professional to do it!
The BYS polish caught my eye merely for the fact that it's UV, and it certainly is! It cost £2 from StoreTwentyOne and comes in about 7 colours... love it!
The greeny coloured one is a cheapy glow in the dark varnish and is not worth being in the photo, it's shockingly bad. Texture like glue and does not glow!
The Maybelline Salon Manicure Varnish is the best clear/top coat varnish I have ever had! It's sooo shiny! I adore this! I used it over my pastel polka manicure and had it on for a week without any chips! <3 <3 <3

This is the second load, a bit more interesting!
No.7 have been giving out £5 vouchers lately, note why I have 3 more of their polishes! In order they are: Devils Delight, Salsa & Vivid Violet. I haven't used the last 2, I might give them as Christmas presents because they're soo pretty, But Devils Delight is the perfect pillar box red!
The next two I bought for the mere fact that I didn't own a gold nail polish! The first is Collection 2000 in Shimmy Shake and is a clear varnish with fairy dust like particles of gold. It is sooo sparkly and looks gorgeous over black! The next is by 17 in Fury and is a metallic bronze/gold which looks amazing on!
I'd be very suprised if anyone reading this doesn't already know the Revlon polish but just incase, It's Facets of Fuchsia and it is AH-MAZE-ING. I had to hunt around for this polish, it was sold out everywhere and I can totally see why! It's a black gel based varnish with 2 sizes of glitter, one facet shaped and the colour, obviously is fuchsia. Layered and Matted this varnish looks fantastic and is to die for!
Now on to my beautiful O.P.I's.... The first I found hidden at the back of a shelf in Tk Maxx in a set with a lipgloss for £6.99! Bargain! It's from the Burlesque Collection, called Tease-y Does It and is my autumn colour!
And finally, my own and only O.P.I shatter which my sister picked up in NY for $4! It's in Turquoise and I want the colour soo bad as a normal polish! as much as I love shatter, you can't do a lot with it but it's freeking awesome!

I have recently bought another, but it's soo nice that it deserves a post just on it's own...

Sorry for boring you with a heck of a lot of writting!
