Mani-Monday #7 Rimmel Lycra Pro in Ultra Violet and Sinful Colors in Frenzy

Hi Everyone, it's been few weeks since I posted my Mani-Monday.

Rimmel Lycra Pro is one of my favorite nail polishes but they have been kinda discontinued, I say 'kinda' because Rimmel has brought out the Rimmel Lycra Pro Kate Collection (Kate Moss) and the only difference is the packaging, the colors still have the same name. Kate Moss picked 10 new shades but most of the old shades are still available.

The brush and the formula are the same so if you want to check out some of the old shades they are available on Fragrance Direct here. You can buy them for 99p! that is crazy.

I bought all of my Rimmel Lycra Pro Nail polishes a while back and they are one of my top formulas for a nail polishes. Long lasting and very opaque. I totally recommend Ultra Violet, it is a beautiful rich lavender/purple creamy color.

I love glitter so I had to do one accent nail with Sinful Colors in Frenzy, it is a multi color purple and blue toned glitter. 

I love both of these nail polishes and I think this look is so pretty :)

Thanks for reading and leave me your links in the comments below :)
I love discovering new blogs!

Haul! MUA and FashionistA + Random Bits

Hi Everyone :)

Few weeks ago I ordered from Make Up Academy (website here) and they have recently started selling FashionistA on their website, and I am trying to make another order right now but there is some problems and it does not finish my order but the money is reserved on my bank account, so I am waiting for a response from MUA and hopefully one more tiny order has been done haha!

AND... this bank Holiday weekend MUA has 30% off on all orders over 15 pounds, just use the code MUA30!

First off I had to try out the new MUA blushers, they are still only £1 but they have new shades, new packaging and they all have names now. I picked up three shades in Marshmallow, Cupcake and Candyfloss

Because I have been loving the MUA lipsticks I picked up three more and I think that will be it for MUA lipsticks, I don't like frosty or glittery lipsticks and I feel like the shades that I don't have do have that sort of finish. But I will talk about that in my MUA lipstick post which I am planning to post soon :)
The Sades that I got were shade 2, 3 and 13.

I had to get FashionistA blushers, I had been reading reviews and for the last month I just have been obsessed with blushers so I got one of the fill it yourself palette and picked 4 blushers (they are on a offer and you can fill your palette for 7 pounds), I am trying to order two more palettes at the moment and also eyeshadow, so I can custimize my palettes more (add eyeshadows and bronzers). But I will DEFINITELY post more about these because they are amazing.
The blushers I got were: Juicy Apricot, Butterscotch, London and Blushing Coral.
How amazing does the London Blush look!?

I ordered these kinda blindly, I did order 4 lipsticks but the fourth was out of stock so they refunded me the money, but I really wanted that one, it was called baby doll pink.
Anyway I really really like these, they are only £1.65 at the moment, What a bargain!
The shades that I got were: Raspberry, Ultra Pink and Natural Pink.
I personally love the packaging! What do you think of red shiny packaging?

That is all I got from MUA, but I really want to make one final order with few eye shadows as well.. so hopefully I can in the next few days

But then Ethan picked up two random items that I really wanted
The new Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Paint in Rich Russet and MAC Fluidline in blacktrack, I had one ages ago but all my gel liners have dried up so I needed one and this one does not disappoint you.
And hello, Rimmel just keep on bringing out great products!

So that is my haul, it was all very affordable (maybe not the MAC liner). 
I love MUA and I really hope they will sort my issue out so I can order more with the 30% off discount. I will let you guys know how it goes...

Anyway, hope everyone is having a great weekend..

Thanks for reading

Fragrance Direct Haul - Essie, OPI and Rimmel

Hi Everyone :)

Few weeks ago I was browsing on Fragrance Direct and found few amazing deals and I just had to have them!

I am in Iceland now and there is restriction on sending nail polishes but Ethan just came back to Iceland yesterday and he brought my stuff with him in his suitcase.
I also have a MUA haul and I will post that tomorrow..

First I ordered three Essie Nail polishes and they were £1.99 each. (link here)

The Colors I got were Bikini So Teeny, Madion Ave-hue and Go Ginza

I also got two OPI nail polishes and they were £3.99 each. (link here)

The Colors I got were If You Moust You Moust (from the Minnie Mouse collection) and Did You 'Ear About Van Gough? (this polish is from the Holland Collection)

Then there were the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick for 99p!! These are amazing I already have three of them so I ordered three more :) (link here)

The colors I ordered were Rouge, Violet Pop and Pink Chic

If I would have bought everything full price I would have paid £66.84. That is alot of money!! £66.84!!! But I paid £16.92 plus £1.99 for postage and packaging.. Soo I paid all in total £18.91.. What a bargain! right??

There are so many great products on this website, I love the Rimmel lycra Pro nail polishes and these are just old packaging but they are the same as the Kate Nail polishes for Rimmel. (link here) Even some of the colors still have the same names.

Have you ever order from Fragrance Direct? This is my second order from them and I have never been disappointed, I totally recommend this website!

I wanted to use my MAC eyeshadow palette that has some of my favorite eye shadows that I depotted. It has some of my Urban Decay eyeshadow, I have my Book of Shadows VI in that palette. 
I wanted to use eye shadows that I have not used in a long time. 
I used Urban Decay Bender on my lower lash line and smoked it out a bit. 
On my top eyelid I used one of my favorite from MAC, Satin Taupe and then MAC kid in the Crease.

As for my Lipstick of the day...  :)

I am obsessed with my MUA lipsticks at the moment, I am waiting on an order at the moment... 

But this Nude lipstick, is shade 14 and has the name Bare.
It is so soft and creamy, very nice and very comfortable to wear. I love the nude shade of it as well.

What do you think? Do I look dead haha? I always wear what I like and sometimes it really does not work with my skin tone but hey I like it :)

FOTD - With Some Of My Current Favorites...

Hi Everyone :)

I just decided to post of my Face today :)

Here are the products I used, but the eyeshadow palette is missing, I used Sleek Storm pallet, I am just planning a post about all my Sleek palettes so if you don't want to miss that you can follow this blog on bloglovin or Facebook.

I have been using these products for the last few days and I really like all of them.
Using the MAC blush and Highlighter has been my favorite combo for my face and I really love the Avon lipstick.

Foundation:  Revlon Nearly Naked in Shell
Powder: Maybelline Fit Me in the number 125
Concealer: Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer
Blush: MAC My Paradise (limited edition)
Highlighter: MAC Mineralize skinfinish in Soft and Gentle
Mascara: Dior DiorShow Waterproof
Eyeliner: Avon SuperShock gel eyeliner
Lipstick: Avon in Pout.

Here is the thing, I can't find my eyelash curlers and you can really see how straight my eyelashes are. I can not believe that I have lost them and I never really gave much thought about how important they are when I am doing my makeup! Anyone else that is totally addicted to eyelash curlers? Just me? 

Hope you enjoy :)

The Lipstick Tag :)

Hi Everyone :)
I saw this Lipstick Tag the other day and I really wanted to do it.
It was created by The Lipstick blog and here is a link to that blog post.

If you have a blog I tag you and let me know your blog in the comments :)

1. How many lipsticks do you own?

I counted 60 lipsticks (thats a good number right?)

2. What was your first ever lipstick?

I am not really sure, I got a big make up case for Christmas when I was like 13 and there were few lipsticks in the case. I had lot of lip glosses and I remember having few from Victoria's Secret. But my first remembering memory of buying lipstick was from the Body Shop and I lost it and I went to repurchase it (but I don't think it is the same color) and I still own it today!

It is the Body Shop lipstick number 48

3. What is your most worn lipstick?

There is no way I know which one is my most worn lipstick ever, but at the moment the L'Oreal Color Riche in 371, Pink Passion is one that I have been wearing loads. 

4. What is your favorite brand for lipstick?

This is a tricky question, I love MAC for lipsticks but I own most lipsticks by Rimmel or Revlon. There are so many great brands and each brand has so many lipsticks and different finishes. 

5. What is your Favorite finish?

Cream sheen or Satin definitely

6. What was the last lip product you bought?

Before I moved a month ago I bought a Chanel Rouge Coco shine lipstick in 79 Saga.
I am also currently waiting for my order from fragrance direct (and MUA) and there is a lipstick or three in there as well.

7. How many lip products do you currently have in your handbag? (Including balms and glosses)

I counted five, I try to clean out every few days because I keep on loosing them.

8. What lipstick do you use to rock a red lip?

I use my Chanel Rouge Allure in 99 Pirate, I also use MAC cherry lip liner.
I love Rimmel Kate Moss lipsticks in 01 and have used that for a long time as well.

9. How do you store your lipsticks?

At the moment I am living at my mums since I just moved back to Iceland. My storage is just temporary so I keep them in a basket where I can easily get to them.

10. What lip products are you currently lusting after?

I have been lusting after a YSL lipstick :) hopefully I can justify one soon :)

Gay Pride 2013 Inspired makeup

Hi Everyone :)
The Gay Pride parade is tomorrow (in Iceland) and it is one of the biggest event here in Iceland. 

Everyone is so supportive and the nation really comes together to celebrate :)

I love playing around and I used the Sleek Ultra Matte palette in Bright. I applied white eyeshadow base first and then applied them wet, I just used my MAC studio Fix plus spray. It is a bit uneven and it was very difficult to bland the green eyeshadow, even if it was dry. 
But it is all fun and I really encourage everyone to play around a little bit when there are fun occasion :)

Hope you will have a great Saturday, unfortunately I will be working, but I did enjoy playing around with some colors :)

Let me know what you are doing this weekend in the comments below, are you going to the Gay Pride parade?

Thanks for reading
