I recently bought a new perfume. This is something I rarely do! I’ve wanted this perfume for at least 5 years though, and I’ve finally gotten myself together to buy it – and I love it! Even more than I thought I would. I’ve worn it every single day since I bought it.
I was unfortunately only able to find a description of the perfumes notes on Sephora’s website, but here goes!
“Musc is at the heart of For Her. The fragrant harmony of the musc expresses itself through three pulsations; honey flower, radiant amber, and tactile wood. This fragrant harmony develops gently and slowly, rounding out into the warm tones of sunkissed skin, dusted in a soft, velvety sensuality.
Honey Flower, Solar Musk, Orange Blossom, Osmanthus, Amberlyn, Vanilla, Tactile Musk, Tactile Woods, Vetiver.
Warm. Sensual. Feminine.”
To me, this perfume is the ultimative femme fatale perfume. It’s very sexy, very sophisticated, deep and mysterious and seductive WITHOUT being too much! You can still easily wear it every day.
If you like these kind of perfumes I highly recommend it :)
Lots of love,
I bought this palette quite a while ago but still thought I’d swatch and review it for you, as I was so impressed with it! And the eyeshadows make up a little UK flag, I mean, come on, that just melts my heart :D
The eyeshadows are numbered, apparently, which I hadn’t noticed when I swatched it so the order might be.. a bit out of order!
4. Outer corner
Well. In my opinion they’ve messed that up a bit. No.2 is definitely not a lid colour, unless you’re going for a super smokey eye. I used no.2 for my outer corner, and the outer corner colour – no.4 – for my crease. No.3 isn’t really a crease colour, not in this palette anyway.
I would definitely recommend using no.1, as a highlighter near your tear ducts, no.4 as a lid colour, no.3 near the lash line to give the look a bit of glow and no.2 for the outer corner.
BUT that is just my opinion, of course you can use it anyway you want to :)
Anyways, the eyeshadows were SUPER pigmented! Those swatches above are made completely without a primer, and I was so impressed. When I wore them on my eyes however I did apply primer underneath and they lasted all day long even though it was a humid and hot day.
This gets 4 out of 5 hearts, as the quality is amazing but there are a few things dragging it down. First of all, the eyeshadows in the UK flag are tiny! The ones in the corners are so hard to reach and you need a tiny brush or you’ll mix up the colours. Secondly, the number system annoyed me a bit as it really didn’t work that well and I made up my own system. Other than that, it’s a lovely palette with some really great colours! I got mine on Asos but unfortunately this colour combination isn’t available anymore.
Lots of love,
How awesome is that name, first of all? Maneater lipstick is the perfect red lipstick for a night out or a glamorous look!
It’s super long lasting. I had a two course meal on the evening I wore it and it was hardly visible on my lips! This lipstick stayed on so well. Very impressed!
Here it is swatched in the following order, next to other gorgeous matte, red lippies!
♥ Illamasqua Maneater
♥ Illamasqua Box (more blue based)
♥ MAC Russian Red (darker)
Maneater is definitely one of my go to red lipsticks, it’s so wearable for every skintone, it’s long lasting and super smooth to apply.
Get yours at Illamasqua today!
Lots of love,
Hi lovelies ♥
I recently found this amazing lipstick for something like two dollars in a supermarket and I’ve fallen head over heels in love with it. I’ve been wanting to buy almost every single lipstick from Wet n Wild‘s Mega Last lipstick range, as they’re beautifully rich and long lasting. I’ll have to keep on looking!
♥ It’s a bit dry in the formula, but that’s how long lasting lipsticks usually are. Nothing compared to some other matte lipsticks. Application is a bit difficult due to the shape of the lipstick, so I highly recommend using a lipstick brush to really fill in the lips and line them up nicely.
♥ It’s very long lasting, doesn’t bleed or smudge so that’s a big thumbs up from me!
♥ The color might be a bit daring for some but I think it’s very very beautiful and I can imagine it suiting every skin tone, so I say give it a go!
Lots of love,
Hello lovelies! ♥
It’s been quite a while since I last made a blogpost, and that’s very much due to my stressful exams at the moment. I’ve only got two left now, biology and oral english, so I’m not feeling as stressed out anymore and thought I’d take time off to write a blogpost.
I recently bought this lipstick, after having read a post on Temptalia on the supposedly American version of this. Click on the link and see why I was intrigued by this red beauty!
♥ It’s a really lovely smooth and shiny lipstick. It’s amazingly soft to apply and very moisturizing, all the while being super long lasting without feeling dry, as other long lasting lipsticks tend to do. I definitely do not regret picking up this beauty!
♥ As Temptalia writes, it’s got a gorgeous blue undertone making it a very universal red lipstick that any skin color can pull off, weather they’ve got a warm or cool toned complexion. I can imagine this being a beautiful color for really anyone.
♥ Being so easy to apply and easy to pull off, I would definitely recommend this for everyone – if you’re going for your first red lipstick and you don’t know which one to choose, and also perhaps don’t want to spend too much money on it, or, if you’re like me, you just want another red lipstick for the collection!
^ In this photo it’s clear to see how shiny this lipstick really is! Also, excuse the bad skin, I’m trying so hard not to pick at it.
^ Swatched in the following order for comparison:
Maybelline – Red Lady (shiny finish, blue undertone)
MAC - Russian Red (darker, matte finish and more neutral)
Topshop – Daredevil (very blue undertone)
Illamasqua – Maneater (very matte finish and more neutral)
MAC – Lady Danger (very orange undertone)
I’m seriously in love with this lipstick and will definitely be wearing it for my galla on Wednesday :)
Lots of love,
Hi there! ♥
Just a quick update post on what I’m doing as I’m clearly not blogging much at the moment. I’m studying for my finals so I can graduate from college on the 27th of June :)
Which I’m looking very much forward to! School hasn’t been easy for me and I’m just so excited that I’m almost done with it. Only a few weeks left!
So that’s basically what I’m doing all day long these weeks. I study, go to exams, study again and go to more exams.
I did, however, put off some time to watch a documentary about HM Queen Elizabeth II’s diamond jubilee this weekend! The diamond jubilee itself was on the 2nd of June, but the UK has been celebrating for a few days. I desperately wish I could’ve been part of it but that’s life sometimes. Maybe I’ll be there next time! I couldn’t follow the diamond jubilee weekend events live as they weren’t aired in my country, sadly. I did celebrate with some royal red lollipops and a bad, bad manicure from Rimmel.
As you can probably see in the photo, these nail applications wrinkled up very badly and were of poor quality. I ended up removing them same evening I applied them as I got so annoyed looking at them! The pattern was pretty cool though.
Here are a few Instagram photos from my life at the moment! :) enjoy!
I hope you’re all doing well and if you’re studying for your finals too: you can do it!!!
I’ll be back to blogging lots more when I’m done with school and have moved back home to my parents to figure out what do with my life :)
Lots of love,
My favourite night time look is quite simple. I usually wear either a simple winged eyeliner look with some bright lipstick or an intense pure black smokey eye (with a bit of a wing as well sometimes).
I only have these photos to show you and they’re so bad, I’m really sorry!
Lots of love,
