Catching Fire

Hello everyone, so I went to see Catching Fire which I HIGHLY recommend as it was amazing and did a bit of Christmas shopping. I'm sorry the pictures aren't the best, I had to quickly rush them as if I hadn't I would've probably missed my train! Enjoy!

L'Oreal Nude Magique Eau De Teint Foundation Review

Hello everyone! Today I've decided to review a product which has been getting a lot of hype and interest in the UK as they've had it in the US for a while and it's only just become available here. That product is the L'Oreal Nude Magique foundation. Basically, it's a liquid powder ( I think ) meaning that it's very light, watery and not heavy duty.  
Packaging - I really love the packaging as it's a frosted glass bottle, the colour scheme works well and its easier to store as its flat on every side. On the back of the bottle there are directions of how to use the foundation which is helpful for those not sure, but the only down-side to this is there isn't a pump. However, I don't think a pump would work as the foundation is so runny so I can deal without.

Application/ Coverage - I apply this foundation by dotting around 10-15 small spots all around my face and buffing it in with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush. I find the foundation dries quite quickly meaning you have to be quite fast with blending in the product so usually I'll do my right cheek & then blend, left cheek & then blend, my chin etc... I apply one coat of this foundation as my skin isn't too bad (at the moment) so I don't want to cake my face as it would probably break me out. It would be able to be built up to have a heavier coverage if needed, however I think the natural finish of the foundation is what I love best. It does a good job at cancelling out redness and hiding pores which are my main concerns regarding my skin. And as you can see below here is me without any make-up (please excuse my face) and me with the foundation.
 Overall - I highly recommend picking up this foundation now as in Superdrug and Boots its £6.99, £3 less than the normal price because it's been newly released. I have oily skin and it hasn't broken me out, doesn't fade from my skin after a full day of school or added more oil to my skin. I have no idea what it would look like on dry skin but as it's more liquid it would hold a lot of moisture so it could probably work. I love this foundation for everyday and I know it'll be my go to foundation for the rest of this year definitely!

Any more questions feel free to ask but I hope this was helpful enough as I've never reviewed a product before.

It's a blue day

Hello everyone, recently I've been so busy and blogging has been quite hard but I've managed to keep up and hopefully you've all been enjoying them. So today I went slightly 'out there' with my outfit as wearing two bold colours is brave for me, enjoy!

Urban Outfitters Wishlist

Hello everyone, recently I've found myself obsessing over many things on the Urban Outfitters website and practically crying because of the prices. I've loved the shop for a few years but the prices recently have just been putting me off a little but some of the pieces are so beautiful the price is irrelevant. I doubt I will be getting any of these any time soon (possibly christmas) but I just thought to share them with you as I love them so much, enjoy!

October 2013 Favourites

Hello everyone, I honestly can't believe how quick this year is going as we only have 2 months left! Anyway, I thought I'd show you my October favourites this month as I haven't done one for a while and there are a few things I've been liking. There aren't so many beauty products as I've been in school all this month so I generally stick to the same routine and doing anything else requires effort which I don't have! Enjoy...

Beauty

1. L'oreal nude magique foundation - I've loved this all this month and I've been wearing it constantly for the past 3 weeks as it's a nice coverage, not oily and hasn't broken me out. I won't go into too much detail as I've reviewed this which will hopefully be coming out in the next few week so if you want more info on the product then just keep checking my blog.
2. Revlon lip butter - 040 Red Velvet & Rimmel Kate Matte collection lipstick - 107
This is my FAVOURITE combination for this time of the year as deep reds are very on trend and suit my skin colour nicely. I love the matte finish of the Rimmel lipstick some days, but when I don't adding the lip butter makes it more glossy. I highly recommend these colour for people with dark hair and pale skin as I struggle to find reds which suit me.
3. Elf Stripple Brush - I got an idea of how to use this from a youtube channel and they suggested using it to apply bronzer which is what I have been using it for the past month. It applies it very lightly so you don't look muddy/orange and is perfect for creating a natural look. Also, it's so affordable so I recommend looking at elf and picking this up!

Fashion
The three main fashion pieces I've been loving are my mom jeans, collared shirts under jumpers and tartan print items. Firstly, I've lived in my two pairs of mom jeans this month as the weather has got colder meaning I want to warm! Also, they go with anything and just make the outfit look slightly more edgy. Tying in with the theme of 'edgy' tartan is definitely a way to make your outfit look slightly different. It's a timeless print which will be big over the upcoming winter and I desperately want a tartan dress! Collared shirts and jumpers are my favourite for this time of the year as it's incorporating layers into your outfit whilst keeping you warm.
My favourite shoes this month have been cut out boots with tights, jeans, dresses or whatever I'm wearing I have lived in them! My red ones are from topshop, they're suede and look so nice with nearly everything I wear. My black ones I haven't won yet as I bought them from River Island yesterday, but I know I will wear them to death!

Music
This month I've been listening to a lot of new albums and have found myself falling in love with many bands! If you want to listen to the song just click as I've linked it to a youtube video of it.


And of course if you know me, I'm obsessed with The Vamps and have been for around a year! Recently they brought out a single and reached no 2 in the charts which makes me so proud as when I first found them, they had around 10000 youtube subscribers so I recommend going to listen to them!
