HALLOWEEN OUTFIT AND MAKEUP WITH BOOHOO

8 comments:
As we all know Halloween is round the corner and the hallow eve madness has been ongoing for the entire month. 

I am not a fan of Halloween as a festivity but in particular of having to get fancy dress clothes. It mainly looks ridiculous. Halloween is the day of the dead, el dia de los muertos.


Does it drive you insane when you see kittens and police officers roaming around on the day? I am sure that it's not carnival season but rather the opposite. It's season of horror movies and themed outfits. This is my outtake on how to create a simple halloween outfit and makeup combination with BOOHOO.COM

BELIEVE IT OR NOT MY TOTAL SPENDING WAS OF £16.00 DELIVERY INCLUDED WITH 


I am no makeup artist but rather a self taught makeup lover and this set will allow you to create a look which worthy of the halloween festivities. I went for a dia de los muertos inspired look as I am not big on scheletons, clowns, dead brides or devils.

Yes, the clown theme this year will be huge due to Stephen Kings remake of IT. Boy, did that clown haunt my dreams as a child.



PETITE SASHA MESH BAT PRINT BODYCON DRESS in Black
£5.00

HALLOWEEN POPPY ROSE FLORAL CROWN in Black
£4.00




DAY OF THE DEAD COLOUR TATTOO TRANSFER KIT in Blue
£6.00



NEXT DAY DELIVERY WAS ONLY 
£1.00

The shoes I am wearing are also purchase from Boohoo.com, they were purchased last year, and make a great piece to own for owning this look.

THE VERDICT


PETITE SASHA MESH BAT PRINT BODYCON DRESS

This dress fitted beautifully. It's a velvet bat lined dress, so you will have to wear something of your choice under it. Great buy and it looks unbelievable.
The only downside is that the dress sheds some of the velvet.

DAY OF THE DEAD COLOUR TATTOO TRANSFER KIT

This kit unfortunately failed to amaze me, the tattoo transfers do not work, the part that should stick is very challenging to get on. I managed to get only part of one adhesive on unfortunately. So I had to draw the rest free handedly. It's an item that I will definitely not purchase again as it didn't serve it's purpose.

HALLOWEEN POPPY ROSE FLORAL CROWN

Even though this crown is of a paper consistency it looks and photographed beautifully. I love that unlike other crowns it's based on a hairband piece rather than elastic which helps it stay in place. This may come in useful for different project.


DELIVERY

Delivery ETA was respected. The great thing is that you can order till noon and still have your item delivered the next day.


Overall my expectations were met versus online ones except for the makeup tattoo transfer kit which I regret purchasing due to how ineffective it was.

What are you dressing up as this year? or have you created any looks too, if so what look did you go for? Did online expectations meet real life ones. I would love to hear your thoughts in the comment section.


    I WAS NOT COMPENSATED FOR THIS POST; HOWEVER, I AM CREATING THIS POST AS PART OF A CONTEST

INTRODUCING THE GLOBRITE LED TOUCH SCREEN MIRROR

8 comments:
It is with great pleasure that I bring you this introduction to the GloBrite LED Touch Screen Mirror.


WHY DID I ORDER IT?

First and foremost, look at the design. For those of you that do know me, design plays a very important role in me making this decision. My bedroom is an all white and black design, I decided that I needed a small mirror I could use for makeup, retouching my eyebrows and that was portable just in case I need to carry it with me to a shoot.


WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE BOX?

The packaging contains a rectangular shaped mirror. The dimensions are approximate and are as follows:

Height -32cm
Width -19cm
Depth -13cm

This item barely takes up any space.

The mirror is attached to a base where you can store in the open whatever you may need, maybe tweezers, eyelashes or cosmetics, this is dependant on your personal choices.

The structure of the item provides a 360° degree free rotation movement where you may adjust it either horizontally or vertically.


Looking at the mirror itself you may notice that there's a light adjustable touch screen button which if pressed for long enough you may alter light intensity. The back holds an on/off switch to ensure that during travel nothing can allow it for it by accident to remain switched on.

You may not be aware of the following fact however, this LED light ensures better protection to your eyes as it is only the best of the best thankfully.

The dimensions of the whole mirror itself are perfect as the viewing area provides the best shape for makeup application viewing.

The box contains also a magnification spot mirror perfect for doing your eyebrows or checking any make-up flaw.

It also comes with a standard user guide.

They claim it runs on low power usage and in fact this is true and verified as I have had the product for a month and use it on a daily basis. I have haven't had to change the batteries yet.

BE VERY AWARE THAT IT DOES NOT COME WITH THE 4 x AA BATTERIES YOU WILL NEED FOR IT TO LIGHT UP.

RETAIL PRICE

£19.99
DEPENDANT ON SHIPPING METHOD THE PRICE VARIES FROM £4.99 TO £7.99 WITHIN THE UK.
I opted for the cheapest delivery method. Which within the UK guarantees 3-5 day eta.

RESULTS

I enjoy this item as it's part of my daily routine so if it fulfils your requirements here it is in it's full glory.

ARE YOU A MIRROR SELFIE ADDICT LIKE ME? Well as you can see, how amazing is that Mirror selfie? The mirror quality is of a high standard, because there is nothing worse than a selfie on a substandard mirror.


IF YOU ARE A MIRROR SELFIE ADDICT LIKE ME THIS IS DEFINITELY THE MIRROR FOR YOU.

DELIVERY
★★★
3-5 day courier eta fulfilled. However, pricing of delivery is steep.

CUSTOMER SERVICE
★★★★★
Very professional and proactive response.

DESIGN
★★★★
The design of the mirror is the main reason why I chose this product, hence I am thoroughly satisfied with it.
4 stars only because it is of a plastic consistency which is fair enough if you consider the product price.

★★★★★
Well it is one of the items that I use the most for my beauty regime so the functionality of it satisfies the purpose. I love that if you press the touch button you can adjust how bright you want the lights on the mirror.

QUALITY OVER PRICE

SUNSHINE BLOGGER AWARD

10 comments:
Firstly and foremost I want to thank the lovely Becca at http://myselfandjake.wordpress.com for this SUNSHINE BLOG AWARD. I am so greatful.


Here are a list of questions that were asked for me to be answered.

  1. Name 3 Life goals you want to achieve. 

Have my successful business.
Be someone to look up to and one day be remembered for the good I may have done or achieved.
I would love to get my PHD.

2. One thing or person that makes you laugh. 

If there is anything or anyone that can make me laugh is a special someone in my life, there's not a day that this person doesn't fill my heart with joy.

3. If you could go back in time to when & why? 

I would probably go back to the time where I was a child, with no care in the world, with love of my parents.

4. Name one celeb you fancy. 

There is not one celeb I fancy unfortunately in that way because they play characters and the possibility of me liking someone based on looks and a facade they may portray is not enough for me to be attracted.

5. 3 words to describe yourself. 

I am told I am kind, helpful and smart so I will go with these character traits.

6. What’s your worst habit? 

I worry to much, I am always on high alert like something may happen and mentally should prepare myself or others for it,

7. What’s the most embarrassing thing that has happened to you? 

When I was a teen I was convinced that rhinoceros was actually rhinoceRANT because it could possibly not be a dinosaur. It was so embarrassing but I find it so funny now.

8. If you had a superpower what would it be? 

I wish I had the power to see which people are good and which people are bad, to keep them away from me and my life.

9. What is your favourite tv show? 

My favourite TV show is definitely SECRETS AND LIES on Sky, it's so addictive and well produced. You must see it.

10. Morning person or Evening & why? 

I am more of an evening person, I associate this time of the day to a calm and relaxing time to catch up on what I am to busy to finish off during my day.

11.What actress/actor would you choose to play you in a film & why?

The question is what actress would you envision playing me in a movie? Let me know. 

____________________________________________________________

I would like to nominate some new found bloggers to give them a chance for us to get to know them a little better. I enjoy their content, I hope you will too.

INTRODUCING A NEW LAUNCH REVIEW: THE MAGNITONE BLENDUP VIBRA-SONIC MAKEUP BLENDING BRUSH

16 comments:
Dolls it has arrived. Yes, the product I was exasperated in being released.  


It is the Blend up Vibra-Sonic™ Makeup brush by Magnitone.


 the Blend up Vibra-Sonic™ Makeup brush by Magnitone.

Not everyone enjoys reading and prefer to see all this in a video check out my YouTube channel.

MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL


Or mini video

CLICK HERE


In my youtube video, I show you will be able to see the difference if you apply makeup with regular brushes vs the Magnitone Blend up Vibra-Sonic™ Makeup brush. Let me tell you the crazy thing!!!!!!!!!

The difference is noticeable by a mile!!!!!!!


WHY DID I CHOOSE THIS PRODUCT?


Firstly, Magnitone is an established award winning brand, who has been featured even in Vogue magazine and let's face it Vogue does not feature anything but the best of the best. 

 the Blend up Vibra-Sonic™ Makeup brush by Magnitone.

I've seen makeup artists on YouTube using such devices but the design of the ones I have come across don't fit the brief for me. 

When I saw the the Blend up Vibra-Sonic™ Makeup brush I fell instantly in love. That sleek design, that rose copper colour detail are the epitome of luxury. 


It comes in two classic and timeless colours: black and white. 

I had to have it at any cost, I was counting down to the Octobers 4th release date. 

I’ve always wanted a brush as such but in order to make the leap it had to be worth it.

 the Blend up Vibra-Sonic™ Makeup brush by Magnitone.

Look at it, it was totally worth it.

It's not clumpy. You can even take it with you wherever you go. The battery lasts up to 100 mins and it has smart travel power lock.

These are incredible features as you definitely wouldn't want it to have low battery when you are out and it's the main brush you need.

FUNCTIONALITY 


Blend up is a Vibra-Sonic™ Makeup brush. It buffs and blends makeup in a way that the end result is flawless thanks to it's 200 vibra-sonic movements p/sec. 

The Magnitone BlendUp Vibra-sonic makeup brush brush not only works with fluids but also with powders efficiently.

 the Blend up Vibra-Sonic™ Makeup brush by Magnitone.

It is very easy to use as it has three base functions. One is blending/buffing, the second is for the finish and the third is for it's cleaning mode. Last but not least you can put the brush on sleep mode too via the same button.

What I love is that not only does it buff and blend your makeup but it also stimulates the skin by massaging it. 


This was achieved as Magnitone developed it with expert guidance from Celebrity Makeup Artist, Paul Herrington.

No one wants a streaky nor clumpy finish.

 It's the nightmare of every makeup loving individual and unless you are an expert at blending or applying it may be a challenge to avoid. Not everyone can have a makeup artist apply makeup on them everyday.

This for me is literally a portable makeup artist for creating my base.

BACTERIA CONTROL

 Well all of the Magnitone BlendUp Vibra-sonic makeup brush heads are treated with Biomaster® which is an antibacterial shield based on natural silver-ion technology which lasts for life. 

 the Blend up Vibra-Sonic™ Makeup brush by Magnitone.

This makes sure that there is no cross contamination reducing those breakout incidents we truly despise.

Can you imagine that it's brush design is created in order to minimise bacteria build up , minimising efficiently breakouts.


VERSATILITY


The Magnitone BlendUp Vibra-sonic makeup brush is so versatile that not only does it come with the SmoothBLEND™; a flat-topped brush head.

It also has two extra heads that you can purchase separately and these are the BuffBLEND and FeatherBLEND to diffuse, buff and stipple depending the look we want to go for.


WHAT'S IN THE BOX?


1 x Cordless, rechargeable
1 x Vibra-Sonic™ makeup brush
1 x Antibacterial SmoothBlend Brush Head
1 x USB Charging Cable
1 x User guide
1 year warranty

THE RESULTS


Look at that flawless finish. The Magnitone BlendUp Vibra-sonic makeup brush is the best brush I will ever own.

 the Blend up Vibra-Sonic™ Makeup brush by Magnitone.


My make-up finish looked airbrushed as promised by the product description. So not only did they deliver to expectation but they also went over them.


I was impressed with the quality of this product. 

The design of the product is minimalistic and timeless. It looks like the perfect accessory to take around with you.


If like me you may be an influencer, it's the perfect looking brush aesthetically!!!!!!!!!


In my youtube video you will clearly be able to see the difference between the normal brushes I use and the Blendup Vibra-sonic makeup brush. The difference is so clear to the point that I wouldn't even have to label which side was done with the brush and which one wasn't.
 the Blend up Vibra-Sonic™ Makeup brush by Magnitone.


In terms, of functionality I would say that it is a brush which makes your makeup base look flawless and also makes your whole makeup routine much quicker.

Magnitone runs as a very effective and professional company as they provide excellent customer care and also next day delivery.

I always expect this from brands I would want to purchase from as trust is the key to a worthy purchase.

I found that it was extremely simple to use the Magnitone BlendUp Vibra-sonic makeup brush both with liquids and powders. It blended my foundation in effortlessly and made it looked as it would do if done by a professional.

When it came down to my contouring, blush application and finishing powder, it performed equally as effortlessly and gave me the perfect blend.


Last but not least, on a separate occasion I timed how much time it saved me on doing my makeup base and found that I had saved up to 15 minutes!!!!!!!!!!!!

 the Blend up Vibra-Sonic™ Makeup brush by Magnitone.

The price does feel a bit steep but then again it is self explicatory, you are buying an advance and luxurious brush for blending and buffing with the Magnitone BlendUp Vibra-sonic makeup brush. 

IT IS AN INVESTMENT!!!!! And the return you ask??????? Simple!!!!!!!!! Perfect makeup all day , everyday.


I can't believe how technology has advanced within the makeup industry and how lucky we are to be able to purchase the Magnitone BlendUp Vibra-sonic makeup brush to recreate wonderfully blended looks like the biggest makeup artists of our time do.

I recommend this product as it is the most useful brush I ever own to get that perfect makeup finish I always longed for and without any effort.


Remember that the brush you use is the key to how your makeup will turn out. Will you splurge and purchase this little beauty.

What is your opinion on the item? Are you in love with it as I am?


This Item was provided complimentary by Magnitone however all the opinions are mine and truthful.




KYLIE COSMETICS HOLIDAY EDITION AND HOW I REALISED IT WAS COUNTERFEIT

8 comments:
This set came in a wonderful silver casing inclusive of six beautiful shades of miniature matte lipsticks.


The size is perfect for going out should you want to replenish your lipstick.

The shades included are moon, ginger, kristen, angel, love bite and vixen.


This was such great casing choice, it looks very high quality and the design is very appealing.

The lipstain itself has great pigmentation except for vixen which was extremely streaky. It is unbelievably long lasting to the point I struggled removing it.


My first impressions were fantastic, the packaging was amazing, the smell matched reviews I had previously had a look at. However on further examination I noticed something wasn't quite right.

Firstly, they would not come off with ease but what gave it away was the pigmentation of vixen and angel. As swatches angel did not match at all it had a shade of orange in it instead of pink and vixen was very hard to apply the colour would somehow only stick to outter edges.

SWATCHES


VS ORIGINAL


On closer examination to the original colours they were close but not at all the same hues.

My advice to you is that it's better to purchase these kind of items from the kylie store itself and should it be out of stock which was my case at the time ,just wait for them to restock.

Kylie cosmetics does not supply for sale to anyone so be very wary of this.

Counterfit items sold as original are just so disappointing because quality will not match your expectations like it didn't match mine.


KIKO COSMETICS: MATTE FUSSION PRESSED POWDER

6 comments:
Hello dolls,

I want to highlight that this is a truthful representation of my experience with the MATTE FUSION PRESSED POWDER.

Why did I chose this one?

It's no secret that I enjoy testing every now and again KIKO cosmetics products. In this instance I decided to put the Matte fusion pressed powder through my tests.

I chose this product because I have combination skin and the issue with my skin is that I do get an oily T-zone which I absolutely hate as I hate that shiny look you get at the end of the day with some products especially if they are not suitable for oily skin.

This powder states to be a natural matte finish which is enriched with vitamin E and Argan oil which nourish and protect your skin.

The powder comes in a modern compact with a gun metal finish together with an applicator.


This powder comes in 7 different shades. The one I got is shade 2.


RETAIL PRICE
£10.90

THE RESULTS

As soon as it was applied the results were instant. I applied it as a setting finishing powder with the enclosed applicator.


CASING DESIGN
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I love the casing design. It looks so sleek and love how the logo looks. The mirror is as high quality as the modern compact gun metal finish. 

APPLICATOR QUALITY
⭐⭐⭐⭐
The applicator is so lovely and soft, perfect for touch ups outside, but my advice is be wary in low light environments because with this applicator you may end up looking blotchy. So probably bring with you a setting powder brush.


MATTE EFFECT
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
The powder is highly pigmented and the finish is a beautiful satin matte.

LASTING EFFECT
⭐⭐⭐⭐
It lasts the whole day but given the weather you may need touch ups of course. 

QUALITY OVER PRICE
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Well worth the value of the item and perfect for combination and oily skin types.

KIKO MILANO: FIRST LOOK AT THE BRIGHT LIFT MASK

6 comments:
This is an honest non-sponsored review on this KIKO mask product as I have been duped many times by social media influencers into buying products that were not as advertised and were not worth the money. I love to test out KIKOs different type of masks. On this occasions, I chose the BRIGHT LIFT MASK. 





Why did I chose this one?

I felt that since living in London, the pollution does not help our skin stay hydrated and supple, on top of fatigue from the city lifestyle.

This mask is being advertised as an intensive lifting mask with marine collagen which instantly lifts, reduces the signs of fatigue and restores a youthful radiance. It is for all skin types.




How did it do on my combination skin?

The mask itself smells beautiful and it's consistency is quite dry in nature almost like a creamy clay that dries up quite quickly.

I leave it on for around 20 minutes.

THE RESULTS

Peel off and rinse off residue just with water, skin instantly appears tight and brighter. On top of that you will smell lovely.

MASK SMELL
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Smelled luscious.

MASK EFFECT
⭐⭐⭐⭐
Tight skin and visibly brighter. The only reason I gave it 4 stars out of five is because you will definitely need a hydrating cream after this mask as I can guarantee your skin may feel quite tight.

BRIGHTNESS EFFECT
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Skin which is visibly brighter.

QUALITY OVER PRICE
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Well worth the value of the item.



ALL IN ALL ITS A GREAT MASK THAT DOES EXACTLY WHAT IT SAYS, SO ITS GREAT TO BUY IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO BRIGHTEN YOUR COMPLETION AND HAVE TIGHTER SKIN.

I STRONGLY ADVISE YOU TO USE THE HYDRA PRO DAY CREAM IN CONJUNCTION WITH THIS MASK.
