Mani-Monday #4 - Sinful Colors in Forget Now

Sinful Colors Nail Polish recently launched in Boots for £1.99 and when I heard about it, I got super excited.

My sister was here last weekend (there was some shopping done) and I looked in every store in central and only found them in the Boots store in Oxford street (the one next to Bond station)
You can also find them here online (if you know the item code for the color you want you can order them online in your local store for free)

The color is Forget Now and is a bright pink with small sparkles, kinda silver, blue, purple sparkle, soooo girly and pretty.

It is also super shiny and lasts a long time, especially if you use a top coat. 

 I really like the bottle, it reminds me of the China Glaze nail polishes. :)

Overall I really liked the Sinful Colors nail polish and I did buy few of them when I was in central and I am sure I will be getting few more. Let me know if you have tried them and what colors do you recommend?

Mani-Monday #3 - Barry M in Pomegranate

I am such a big fan of Barry M nail polishes and I love the Gelly Hi-Shine collection.

A classic shade is the Pomegranate, here are some awkward photos from the bus :) 

Such a beautiful color and it is so shiny... 

I don't have a picture of the bottle and it is too dark to take a photo now but I will snap one tomorrow and post it on my Instagram (margretscorner) and my tumblr

I own few more of the gelly nail polishes and I have posted NOTD with the lychee from Barry M (here).

Have you tried any of the Gelly Hi-shine polishes from Barry M?

Mani Monday #2 - Pastel Polka Dots

Last night I was doing my nails and I posted this photo on my Instagram and Tumblr

And the Nail Polishes that I used are

Rimmel Lycra Pro in Peppermint and Models Own in Pastel Pink.
These are both old Instagram photos that I posted
Instagram: Margretscorner

I know I seriously need to condition my cuticles, Just ignore please.

I took these photos this morning before running out of the house, not the best set up but you get the idea.

I was playing around with a dotting tool that I just got but you can always use a bobby pin or a toothpick to create dots.

This was the first time I done something like this, I am pretty happy with the outcome and I got few compliments today :):)

Let me know what you think ;)

Thanks for reading and have a great week 


Btw... Do you have a Tumblr??? Check out mine here, I update every single day!

Step by Step - Foolproof Going Out Look For Summer.

Summer is around the corner and I was playing around with some of my makeup the other day and I posted this photo on my instagram (margretscorner follow me:)
And I decided to do a step by step post on this eyelook since it is sooooo easy. 

I think it is perfect for going out in the summer since it has a pop of color and I paired it with a bright pink lip :)

Step 1 - Primer Primer Primer... My ultimate favorite is the Urban Decay Primer Potion and I only need a tiny bit for both eyelids.

Step 2 - Next I took my Maybelline gel eyeliner in black, I used it all over my eyelid.
If you use black a an base and then any color (bright metallic) ends up being so vivid and beautiful.
I love this technique

Step 3 - Next I take a light brown color to blend into my crease and soften the edges. My new favorite is MAC kid. It is very soft and I only use tiny bit. You can also use a bit darker brown and get more of a smokey effect.

Step 4 - Pick your eyelid color, I love Urban Decay Hijack from Book of Shadows number five.
Place it all over the black base.

Step 5 - Apply inner corner highlighter, I am using Crystal from the same Urban decay Palette.
It makes such a difference when you do this small step.

Step 6 - Apply more eyeliner :)
On your waterline and upper lash line and I like to wing it out .

step 7 - Curl your lashes and apply mascara, Today I am using the Benefit They're real.
If you dare, apply false eyelashes :)

Step 8 Then go ahead and do some finishing touches.
Fill in your eyebrows,  I am using Rimmel eyebrow pencil in Hazel.

Step 9 - More finishing touches... Creamy light matte eyeshadow on my brow bone to give me a little lift. This one is from Seventeen and is called Ivory Coast

And the eyes are done!
So easy :)

I had to pair the look with a bright lip.
Since summer is almost here I think this look is great for going out and with the bright lip it really   is a summer night look!
I used MAC Viva Glam Nicki (the first lipstick) (I did a post about it here)
And on top I used Chanel Lipgloss (I can't find it right now, I have no idea where I put it but I will post a Instagram photo when I find it with the name)

And for the rest of the face this is what I am wearing:
Bourjois healthy Mix Foundation in 52
Soap and Glory Blotting Powder in translucent
Collection Concealer in shade 1 and 2
Benefit Dallas Blush/Bronzer

So that was my Step by Step to a Foolproof Going Out Look For Summer.

Let me know what you think and if you have tried any of these products?

As always

My Thoughts on... Rimmel Exaggerate Eyehsadow Primer

MTO - My thought on Rimmel Exaggerate Eyeshadow Primer.

The Rimmel Exaggerate Undercover Shadow Primer is a white Silicone based eyeshadow primer. When the primer is blended into the skin it disappears and the skin feels very smooth.
Since it is a Silicone based primer it does blur imperfection and mattifies oily eyelids, but also because it is a silicone based primer make sure you test it on your hand before using it on your eyes, some people react badly to silicone...
Anyway the Primer is supposed to help your eyeshadow stay on all day, help the eyeshadow stay put and no creasing. 

Sounds great right??

Ohh nooo....!!! I really WANTED to love this!
There is a massive gap in the market for a 'drugstore' primer. When I saw that Rimmel brought out an eyeshadow primer I bought it straight away.

I have been using the primer for a while now and there is something about it that I don't like. I am not saying that I hate it I just don't really like it.

It creases! When I do my makeup I do my foundation first and I do put a tiny bit over my eyelids because I have very dark eyelids and then I apply the primer, within 30 sec it has gathered in my crease, without any eyeshadow!

Then I sort that out and apply normal amount of day time eyeshadow and within 2 hours the eyeshadow has moved and creased.

The only time it actually stays put is when I apply heavy makeup and then it stays.
It is like the more powder you put on the more it stays, but in the daytime I don't wear heavy eyeshadow so it really is not a good primer for me. :(

My ultimate favorite primer is the Urban Decay and the Rimmel Primer is not compatible in my eyes. 

Keep in mind that these are my thoughts on this Primer, A lot of people like this primer...
Let me know if you have tried the Rimmel Primer and what did you think?

FOTD - Playing Around With New Products

I was off today so I was playing around with some new products this morning and I really liked the natural glowing spring look so I decided to share it here :)

Products used 

1 - Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation 
2 - Maybelline The Eraser Eye Corrector and Concealer in light
3 - Benefit They're Real Mascara
4 - Maybelline Fit Me Powder
5 - Seventeen blush in First Kiss
6 - Maybelline Dream Mousse blush in Peach
7 - Revlon Lip butter in Strawberry Pie (Read about the lip butters here)
8 - Rimmel Scandaleyes eyeliners in Nude and Taupe
9 - No7 Eyeshadow in Wheatsheaf
10 - Soap and Glory Brow Pencil

Excuse the CRAZY hair... I had a haircut later that day haha

This was the first day trying the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, I have been using the Healthy Mix Serum Foundation for a long time and it is one of my all time favorite but since Bourjois just re-launched the Healthy Mix Foundation I just had to try it. First impression: Very good, gives me a medium coverage and a glowing complexion.
I found the Maybelline Concealer in Boots but it is still not on the stand, I just saw it in the delivery. I have never seen them in England so I was very happy finally finding the concealer. So far so good.
Again it was my first time using Benefit They're Real Mascara, I don't know what I think about it, I like it but it does not keep the curl on my eyelashes.. hmmm...
The Seventeen blush in First Kiss was really good, I used the Maybelline Mouse blush because it gives me such a good glow but I wanted really pink cheeks so I used the Seventeen blush for the first time today and a little goes a long way. 
So that is basicly my spring FOTD playing around with new stuff :)

The Weekly Roundup in Photos #2

Weekly Roundup in Photos and this time its more natural going to work makeup, I have been kinda obsessed with bright lips these last few days and let me know if you guys want to see some of my favorite bright lips for spring/summer.

Look 1 - 

On my way to work and here I am wearing the Rimmel Scandaleyes eyeliner in Taupe on my top lash line and it is winged out, the photo doesn't really show it properly but it is such a nice way to wear eyeliner, I also used the Rimmel lipstick in 004 Indulgence, I have had this lipstick for a long time and I still love it. I made a post featuring that lipstick here

Look 2 -

This is my favorite look from last few days, it is very natural and soft, I was using my Avon Lipstick (Post here). The cheeks are very glowing and pink with Dainty Doll blush in 002. I have been using this Seventeen eyeshadow all over the eyelid and I bought few more from that line the other day and they are such a good quality and I have to take some more photos with these eyshadows. 

Look 3 -

This was one of these days when I just done such a basic look, I don't even like it that much :S
But anyway I basically put eyeliner on my waterline, natural eyehshadows from Topshop that I have had for ages and actually did one of my first posts with that eyeshadow.
I have been trying the new Seventeen mascara and I am actually really liking it. 

Look 4 -

This was an absolute 5 minute makeup, I used my fingers to apply eyeshadow from Too Faced and then used Maybelline The Rocket mascara and Kate Moss Lipstick in 05. 

I hope everyone are having a good weekend and tomorrow is Bank Holiday so long weekend here in England :)
Let me know wich one of these looks are your favorite :)

Thanks for reading
