Empties #2

Hey Blogletts,
So I feel as if I have got to the point in which I have used enough products to do an empties blogpost.

No1. Lush's Catastrophe Cosmetic Fresh Facemask
This was a really great facemask and I reccomend it for those of you with acne prone skin. This aims to reduce and prevent blemished, which it certainly did, the day after I used this my spots were seriously reduced not angry beasts. The only downside of this product is that it goes off rather quickly, due to it being fresh, that is why there is some product left. Plus a little goes a long way so it is tricky to use this up in the time it is still fresh.
No2.  Aveeno Cream

This is a really simple but great moisturiser. If you want a really deep moisturiser without harsh smells then this is for you, cheap, cheerful and does the job.
No3. Bodyshop Seaweed Clarifying Toner
I must say I'm not the biggest toner fan in the world, however I did enjoy this product. I felt like it just cleaned my skin that little bit more, making it feel fresher and soothing, helping reducing the redness of spots. I really enjoyed this product however I want to try other toners, but I feel I may revert to this.
No4. Elemis Fruit Active Rejuvinating Mask
This part of a sample pack I recieved. I had never tried any Elemis products so I was happy to try this and I was seriously impressed. It had an odd texture for a mask, making me scepticle as it was a thin, moisture texture. BUT it worked, my face looked brighter and felt smoother, making me want to try some more elemis products, even buying the full size of this,
No5. Clarins Hydraquech Cream
I absolutely fell in love with this product. In the evening I like to use a thick moisturiser and this was just amazing. However it is a little pricey so I desperately want to repurchase but my conscience won't let me.
No6. Clearasil Spot Cream
This product was just not for me. I felt like it did nothing for my spots whatsoever it was just another cream on my face which was completely useless. A positive about this is that it lasted forever, but I will not be repurchasing.
No7. Collection Extreme Felt Tip Liner

I love this liner. It is so easy to use, pigmented, it's matte and it lasts. Just perfect and I will be repurchasing as it is pretty cheap.
These sweets are just 'da bomb'. They are sweet, sour and just fab. If you haven't tried them, try to find an American sweet shop and get them as you won't regret it I promise!
So what have you used up lately?

Revlon 3for2

Hey Blogletts,
Revlon is a drugstore brand which I hear a lot of hype about and have tried 1 or 2 of their products, but never really gone crazy for them. So when I was trawling my local boots and on all revlon products it was a 3for2 offer. I had to pick up some makeup for a barbie look, so I took advantage of this offer.
First of all I got one of the new Photoready Cream Blushes in 100 pinched.
Pinky blushed can tend to make me look as little ... flushes or punched in the cheeks, so I thought I would try a peachier colour and I am looking forward to testing this out.

Next I picked up the Colourstay Quad in 535 Goddess.
When I saw this I instantly thought Barbie so I thought this would be great for a Barbie look.
It includes a light shimmery colour, a pink, a taupey colour and a sparkly black.

Finally I got a Super Lustrous Lipstick in 424 Amethyst Shell.
Again I saw this and instantly thought Barbie. There was another colour I was contemplating getting however it was a matte shade, which I am not too keen on.

What's your favourite Revlon product?
Hope you enjoyed.

5 A/W Beauty essentials

Hey Blogletts,
So its A/W now and although you can still wear the bright summer makeup, here are a few tips on how to transfer your beauty products from season to season.
First of all, I think we have all felt the nip in the air in the UK, and this can tend to dry out your skin. So I reccomend using a little richer moisturiser. Now if you have oily skin, this can be tricky however I have found a good one. Olay ...
Now this season can also tend to make your skin a little dull, however this moisturiser helps to illuminate the skin slightly.

To also enhance this, I feel that Clarins Beauty Flash Balm is also a great product. This is a primer which brightens and tightens the face ...

The final brightening product is benefit Sunbeam. This is a great goldy, shimmery hilighter which is just the perfect hilighter for these upcoming seasons.

For the eyes, as much as I hate to take away the bright shimmery colours, its time to darken down to fit right into this season. One product which is perferct for this is Maybelline's colour tattoo in 'On and On Bronze'. This is great for swiping a sheer layer for a day to day look, or add more product for a more intense night look.

Finally, switch up the black eyeliner for a khaki colour, again matching this seasons trends. This one is from Rimmel and is in 'Jungle Green'.

What are your beauty essentials for the colder months?

Super Saver Sunday #2 - Lipstick/gloss

Hey Blogletts,
Here is another post on what you can save your money on. Todays product is .....
17 mirror shine lipstick - Beehive.

This is an amazing product. It is quite sheer so it leaves a little colour on the lips but it gives an amazing shine so for someone who doesn't get on with lipgloss, this is a nice inbetween.
This comes in a range of sheer, shiny colours and for the price of £4.59 which for a lipstick and gloss all in one I think is pretty good.
There is one tiny downside which is that it can tend to dry out the lips a little, but whack a lipbalm on first and you are good to go.
Overall I think this is an amazing product and definately a super saver.
What are your super saver products of the week?
