Bourjois 'Sweet Kiss Gloss' 10hr Hydration

The 3 shades I received in my goodie bag, see below*
Continuing on with my Bourjois posts, up next is their new 'Sweet Kiss Gloss' 10hr Hydration formula.
It is possibly the most comfortable lipgloss I've ever tried on my lips and I absolutely love the moist formula. It is super hydrating thanks to it's "vegetable oil-enriched formula... that doesn't feel sticky on the skin"** and I can absolutely guarantee that there is zero stickiness to these after wearing them for a few days in a row now!!!
They have released 6 shades in the range which are;
01. Sand-Sation*
(A peachy Beige)
02. Rose Qui Peut 
(Light Frosty Pink)
03. As De Pink
(Reddish Pink)

Bourjois 'Aqua Blush' for Summer 2015

One of the most exciting releases by Bourjois this summer is their brand new 12hr Aqua Blush formula.
These are fluid gel blushes that I think are somewhere in-between the Makeup Forever Aqua Cream Blushes and the Daniel Sandler Watercolour (liquid) Blushes.
There are four shades in the collection including;
01 Ingé-nude 
02 Cocoricorail
(I haven't the faintest clue how this is pronounced!)
03 Pink Twice 
04 Berry Nice


Strobing is the newest makeup fad on the block and unless you've been living under a very dull rock you've probably heard something about it or at least seen this meme in your FaceBook timeline!...

or this one...

Max Factor 'Colour Intensity Balms' | Hint, Tint or Pop!

I love when new cosmetic formulas come into being... We live in a time where everything is copied or 'inspired by' but every now-and-again we get something shiny & new to placate our makeup junkie urges. 
Welcome the new Max Factor 'Colour Intensity Balm'.
This is a lipstick / lip-balm hybrid formula that offers the hydration and comfort of a balm, but the buildable colour and pigment intensity of a lipstick!

Make your Nose look Smaller | Natural Contour

If I had money to burn and wasn't terrified of the prospect of plastic surgery, I would absolutely consider getting my nose fixed, but saying that, it'll probably never happen. (Especially of my boyfriend has any say in it!) So for now, I rely on makeup and the magic of contouring to fake a slimmer more symmetrical looking snoz.

Graduation Makeup Tutorial | LetzMakeup

As it's graduation season again and loads of you guys requested I create a graduation appropriate makeup look, here it is!!

...Though this would be suitable for any summertime formal occasion. The eyes are fairly simple but striking and the pop of pink on the lips really gives it that summertime feel.

Matrix 'Oil Wonders' Hair Oils

Time to get back to the blog now that I've successfully moved house and am *nearly* settled in and organised!
I've had this hair oil by Matrix for a good few weeks now, possible months actually(!) and where I had always shied(?) away from hair oils in the past due to having such fine hair, I have slowly come around to quite liking certain oils that don't turn my noggin into a lank, greasy mess.
