My new bargain lipstick // Anastasia Beverly Hills.

Hello darlings

If you follow me on Instagram (link) you would have seen that i popped into TKMaxx a couple of days ago and found quite a few bargains! They had a lot of Anastasia Beverly Hill's products and pretty decent ones too, normally they are products that people don't want. These are not just ABH but other brands for example, black and purple lipsticks, or green and purple eye shadow.

They had contour palettes (the last one had finger prints in so i didn't pick it up) lots of single eye shadows, liquid lipsticks, lipsticks etc. Have a look at my bargain stories on my Insta to see which ones. Also they had lots of other brand too for example, Stila, Maybelline, Revlon, Pixi, Estee Lauder. 
I only picked up one lipstick, i know the self restraint, but i need to save money for my holiday. I chose a ABH matte lipstick in the shade Buff. Which is a beautiful pinky-mauve. Its quiet similar to MAC Mehr. I was really happy to find this shade as its the type of shade i usually wear which means i should get a lot of use out of it. 
Very pretty and pigmented shade. I do think it is a very dry texture but it is comfortable on the lips as long as i have a lip balm underneath.  But being a dry formula means its a long lasting product. 

I'd love to know have you found any bargains in TKMaxx recently?

Pretty In Pink // Nail Care Routine. // My Go To Look.

Hello darlings

Today i thought i would share with you my current go to routine for my nails and the look i have been loving. Its a really simple look that is quick and easy to create.
All the nail polishes are Essie but just by chance i'm not sponsored by them, they are just my current favourites. I start off with the nail file and buffer, any type will do, i make sure all my nails are even and smooth. I then put a thin layer of hand cream on to hydrate my hands. My current favourite is the Nivea Vanilla and Almond Oil, it smells lovely. Then i start with the Essie Apricot Oil to soften and nourish my cuticles. I put two/three coats of Essie 'Not Just A Pretty Face' on three of my nails, my thumb, middle and pinky. Then i put two Essie 'Disco Ball' of the other two. To top it all off i put the Essie Top Coat 'All In One' on top of all my nails to seal it all in and to avoid chipping. I love this look as its quite subtle but pretty and you can wear it daily. 
Essie are not the cheapest nail products but are really good and i find worth the money. But if you're like me and love a bargain you can always deals where you can find them a little cheaper for example TKMaxx, Fragrance Direct, Ebay etc. I have quite a large collection but that is because i bought the Essie Advent calendar a couple years ago after Christmas, 24 nails polishes for £7 (plus i had staff discount at the time) the calendar was worth £70! 

I'd love to know what your go to nail look is?

Dare magazine // June 2019

Hello darlings.

I thought i would come on here quick just to let you know about the latest issue of DARE magazine. I love getting this magazine its always such good value. I'm a bit late writing this as it has been out for a while. I remember i missed the last issue and i was gutted. The June issue has 2 products and several sachets which is perfect as i go on holiday in 2 weeks so perfect timing. It was £3 and has the value of £11. 
It comes with a sample of J Low's Enduring glow perfume which smells amazing. A sample of the shampoo and conditioner of the Mane n Tail, i've heard so many good things about this brand and i look forward to trying this. A full size Revolution liquid highlight in the shade Rose Gold, this is £6 so double what i paid so this alone makes the purchase worth it. Its a little bit dark for my skin tone but i will make it work as it is so beautiful. Maybe an an eye shadow? Next a mini Colgate tooth paste, great for my holiday. A Hawaiian Tropic Sun Cream sample again great for my holiday! Its like they knew. Lastly the magazine also contains a book of vouchers to spend at Superdrug, these are points vouchers and discounts on their nail and brow bar. 
Have you picked up your copy?

Empties // June 2019

Hello darlings

Today i'm stood in my kitchen with my cup of tea that i have microwaved three times having a few moments to my self and thought i would write a little post. Anyone else with kids are constantly microwaving their tea or coffee? There is always one in my microwaved that i have forgotten about. Anyway today's post is an empties post, do people still read these? Or am i stuck in the past? I really enjoy reading and writing these posts. Anyway here are a few things i've used up this month!
Maybelline Lash Sensational: There is always one of these mascaras in my empties, my all time favourite mascara is the Lash Sensational. I've been using it for years and i have tried others along the way but none beat it. So i will repurchase it when i run out of my back up stash!

L'Oreal True Match Foundation: Its taken me a while to use this up i do really like it but its my summer shade so i put it away at the end of last summer and have finally finished the last little bit now that the sun is back out. It has great coverage, lovely finish and lasts well in the heat. I might buy this again in the future but for now i've got a draw full of foundations i still need to use up.

Simple Kind to Skin Replenishing Moisturiser: This is a firm favourite of mine, whenever i need a good basic moisturiser i look to Simple. I think this works really nice first thing in the morning. It feels and looks amazing on my skin and it sits really well under makeup. It is a very light moisturiser but i need a thicker moisturiser at night. I will definitely be repurchasing this again.

B Hydrated Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz: I LOVE this facial spritz. I already have another one on the go. My skin reacts really well to Hyaluronic acid. I have been using this facial spritz for some time, i can't remember how many i have purchased. 

Jimmy Choo Blossom: My fiance bought this for me for Christmas a couple of years ago when it first came out. Its such a beautiful scent, its floral but light. I would think i buying it again but there are so many other fragrances i want to try next! 

Batiste Dry Shampoo: I mean what can i say who doesn't love and need dry shampoo. I have tried a million different ones but Batiste is the only one that works for me. This one is in the scent Sweetie but there are lots of really nice scents from them.  I will definitely be buying again as i can't live without dry shampoo.

I'd love to know have you tried any of these products?

Ready, Jet, Go Kit from Clinique

Hello darlings

Today post is about a little skincare set from Clinique i ordered last week, i haven't actually tired much from Clinque which is funny because i had a job interview to work for them a few years ago but i chicken out and got too scared to go to the interview. On Look Fantastic they have a selection of different types of skincare and makeup sets each with a theme, full of miniatures or 'fun sized' products for you to test out.  I love boxes of miniatures like this because you get to try out a bunch of products for a fraction of the price. I think its why i love the beauty advent calendars at Christmas so much as  you gets lots to try out. It takes me ages to use up a full size product. 

I have dry skin so i picked up the Ready Jet Go Set as it was the 'non-stop hydration' selection. Also because it had the products that most caught my eye. Other sets they had were the 'Break Up with Breakout Kit', 'Ready in 5' and 'Stay in and Chill Out Kit' and many more. All priced at about £20 which is really good value as you get 3-5 products in each. 
The set contains:
Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrating Super Concentrate. 15ml
Clinique All about the Eyes Eye Cream. 5ml
Clinique Moisture Surge Facial Spray. 30ml
Clinique Chubby Stick in 'Woppin Watermelon'. 
I am yet to try these products but first impression are really good. 

You can buy it here.

I'd love to know have you tried any of these kits?
What would you recommend i try next from Clinique.
