Review: Tanya Burr lipgloss in 'picnic in the park'

Well hello to you my reader chums! Today I'm going to tell you about one of my favourite products at the moment featured in my April favourites: Tanya Burr's lipgloss in 'picnic in the park.' At the beginning of April Tanya's range got launched into over 100 superdrug stores. On the day,Mel and I woke up bright and early and headed to our local superdrug. We walked around the store for about 20 minutes and couldn't find the collection so asked the lady who kindly brought it out for us giving us first pick! Both of us purchased 'picnic in the park' because we've wanted it for the longest time!

The packaging the lipgloss comes in is just too cute! I love the glass tube as it gives a rather sophisticated look, with the heart on the lid and the italic writing making the lipgloss look cute at the same time. As its a transparent tube you're able to tell the colour of the lipgloss before purchasing which is always helpful! I think as the packaging is really adorable, it would look lovely on display on a shelf/dressing table where you keep your beauty products!

The applicator it comes with makes it really easily to apply the lipgloss. It's a flat doe foot applicator that when taken out gives you the right amount of lipgloss to wear. When applying you the lips it goes on smoothly and is the right size for the lips which I love!

Can we please all take a moment to appreciate the smell of this lipgloss?! No joke it smells of strawberry laces, it's like applying sweets to your lips, I mean who doesn't love that?! 


The colour it gives when on is this beautiful medium pink colour with a lovely shine over the top. I adore this colour, it's perfect for the spring/summer time! I love to wear it with a neutral eye and winged liner, it adds a pop of colour to the make up look.

The lipgloss lasts a couple of hours in my opinion which is amazing considering when I wear lip products they just wipe off really easily. When the product dues come off it leaves the lips feeling really moisturised which is different to many other lipgloss's I've tried. Yet I love that aspect because it means I wouldn't need to put on some lip balm before of afterwards as the lipgloss has these moisturising features. 

Here's some pictures of me with the lipgloss on. I'm really impressed by 'picnic in the park' and I honestly can't wait to purchase some more of Tanya's products. For the price of £6.99, they are at a high quality standard which I'd expect from more expensive brands. They're such a good value for money. I'm so proud of Tanya, she is such an inspiration!

Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed! <3  

Review: Garnier micellar cleansing water

Well hello to you my reader chums! Today I've got a review for you on Garnier's micellar cleansing water. I've been loving this product lately and it's been previously featured in my April favourites. I purchased this over a month ago after reading a couple of blogs of people raving about it and wanted to give it a try myself.
Since buying I've used it instead of my usual cleanser in my skincare routine and it works amazingly! This micellar water easily wipes away makeup, even eye makeup gently with it not being too harsh on the skin. It leaves your face feeling refreshed with all the nasty germs and makeup excess been taken away. I found after using this, my eye lids have become less oily, I'm not sure if its because my other cleanser was making them that way or if this product has soothed them, however I'm extremely pleased with the outcome. I use this day and night and even a little amount of the product goes along way! 
It claims to have 200 uses, I've had this product for over a month and use it twice a day meaning I've had over 60 uses and I've only used a quarter of the bottle. With that in mind, I reckon it'll give me about the recommended amount. The product has no perfume which is a big advantage because I have sensitive skin. I love this aspect of it because it doesn't feel like its harming my skin. Also it's rather a light product and literally feels like water applied to the skin. With it being water you'd think it would take ages to dry after being applied, however it takes under a minute to dry which is always a bonus!

For the first cleansing water I've tested, I'm definitely going to try out more! To sum up: I adore this product, it easily takes off makeup, leaves the skin feeling soothed and clean with it not being too harsh! A must buy in my opinion. 

Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed ❤ 

Makeup tutorial: Natural summer look

Well hello to you my reader chums! If you saw yesterday's blog, you'd know I went to see the fault in our stars. Oh wow it was amazing, such an emotional moving incredible film. It definitely lived up to the standard of the novel, highly recommended!
Today, as I've not done a tutorial in a while, I thought I'd show you a makeup look I've been enjoying lately which is perfect for the summer time. Here's the look:

The products used: 


For the base I use the maybelline BB cream. I wear this on days wear my skin needs an extra oomph and glow. It's extremely light on the skin and gives a lovely dewy natural effect. As it has spf 15 in its also perfect for the summer time. To then get rid of my under eye circles and as a eye primer, I use the oh so famous Collection lasting perfection concealer. I've found that it works as an eye primer as well as a concealer. To powder I use the Rimmel stay matte. I then on a real techniques blusher brush take the Bourjois chocolate  bronzer and slightly contour as well as dusting it all over my face and neck to give myself a bronzed glow. For a cheek bone highlight as the Sleek rose gold blush has a lot of gold glitters in, I apply that.

For the eye shadow I use the lighter brown matte shade all over the lid and the darker matte shade in the crease.
To blend out the darker crease colour to make it look more natural I use the shade 'Freestyle' from the smoked palette. Then for a brow bone and inner corner highlight I use the shade 'Kinky'. 


To finish the look I add a wing on the eyes, line my water line with a white kohl liner and apply a couple of costs of mascara.



This is close up of the eyes.

I hope you enjoyed this makeup look, thank you for reading <3

April favourites 2014

Well hello to you my reader chums! It's the first of May today,meaning another month is over and its time for monthly favourites. Is it just me but I honestly can't believe we're in May? In April, I've been enjoying a lot of pink themes products as you can see:
The first product is a Maybelline colour tattoo in the shade pink gold. First things first is I absolutely adore it! The colour it gives off is so beautiful and fresh, it adds a lovely pink shimmer to the lid. The pigmentation is truly amazing, only a little is needed to achieve an eye look. As soon as I got it, I've been wearing it constantly,I literally love it that much. The colour tattoo claims 24 hour stay on the pot which is something I'd doubt.  However, I'd say its accurate because I wore this on my eyes all day in London followed by a party in the night which was a good 16/17 hours and it didn't crease/budge. For £4.99 it's a bargain! I couldn't recommend it more.
The next product is a strawberry lip balm.  I'm not usually a fan of lip balms in pots, as I don't really like the idea of repeatedly putting your finger in and applying product to the lips. However I really like this. Despite the product being rather thin ,with you having to apply a few coats, it really moisturises the lips and has the most gorgeous smell. I usually apply this before I go to bed, which results in the next morning having my lips feeling soft and moisturised.

The next product is a MUA nail polish in the shade 'lush lilac'. As its spring now I've started to get back into pastel and bright colours. After a few coats the nail polish builds up to this beautiful pale pink colour which lasts a good amount of time , 3-5 days. For a pound MUA nail polishes are a bargain and I absolutely love this shade!
The next product is one of Tanya Burr's lipgloss's 'picnic in the park'. Tanya's range was launched in over a 100 superdrug stores at the beginning of the month and I couldn't wait to get my hands on them! The lipgloss I was looking forward to buying the most was 'picnic in the park' and I'm so happy I did! It gives the most beautiful medium pinky colour! The lipgloss itself applies so easily due to the flat applicator it comes with. It stays put for a good few hours and once the lipgloss is worn off, it leaves the lips feeling really moisturised. One of my favourite parts of it is the smell, the lipgloss smells of strawberry laces, it just makes me want to eat it! I'm so proud of Tanya for the range and I can't wait to get more of the products. I'll put a full review with swatches up soon.
The last product is the raved about micellar cleansing water by garnier. I picked this up because I've read some good reviews and wanted to see if it was worth the hype. I must say it definitely is! The cleansing water easily removes makeup leaving the skin feeling refreshed  and soothed. When applied on a cotton pad and wiped over the face, it's really gentle and feels like its doing the job. I honestly love it and am going to post a full review of this too so watch out for that!

Thankyou for reading, I hope you enjoyed my April favourites! ❤
