The Perfect Red Lip



Featuring the shade - The lady is a vampπŸ‘„πŸ’•

Technic have a vast range of lipstick shades and I decided to opt for a much bolder option. When I saw this deep red shade, my initial reaction was 'WOW' and although I always stick to much safer colours i.e nudes/light pinks I wanted to really try this colour on and break free from playing it safe with my usual chosen lip colours.
Read on to see how I got on with this bargainous lip product.

Product description:
A beauty must have for any woman. This lipstick glides on smoothly to give elegant looking lips. Vitamin E acts as an effective moisturising agent, improves the elasticity and smoothness of the skin. It also acts as an antioxidant preventing skin damage by free radicals.

The packaging is standard but straight to the point. The simple black casing is still striking and the handy coloured tip shows the colour of the lipstick.
The actual red colour is definitely a 'vampish' red and the colour is SO pigmented. I was amazed at the colour pay off and for the price, this lipstick is perfect if you are on a budget or if you want to play around and try out make-up without breaking the bank.
Eventhough this is a colour I wouldn't go for, it's good to experiment and have handy in your collection. I think because of this colour, I will be able to wear bolder shades and not just go for the safer options.
I was able to get a good wear out of this, atleast 4-5 hours. The colour stayed put and not only that, because of the added vitamin E, my lips felt nourished and hydrated.
I loved that this lipstick had something to give back, just like a lip balm. 
Overall a product that should definitely be tried and for a mere price of 0.99 you are getting a lipstick that matches the likes of much higher brands.

Available at lovethymakeup.com and bodycare.

Patisserie De Bain Cranberries and Cream Skincare Duo




I have no idea why I didn't try Patisserie de bain any sooner because this stuff is insanely good!
Patisserie de bain brings you quirky bath and body products, they capture cute scents and with retro packaging, it certainly grabs your attention too! I got this gift set free when I bought three products from the flutter range that was in Superdrug. It was finally time to report back why I really loved this brand.

Product description:
Discover your free spirit with the fresh, fruity delights of Patisserie de Bain Cranberries & Cream. Certainly not a crowd-follower, Cranberries & Cream is an eclectic blend of fruity cranberries whipped with sweet Chantilly cream with an eye-catching, unique style. From Hand Cream, Bath & Shower CrΓ¨me and Hand & Body Lotion to handmade sweet treats like Soaps, Bath Bombs and Bath Tartlettes – let your inner rebel shine bright.

So this giftset contained 1x Bath and Shower Creme 200ml worth £3.99 and 1x Hand and Body Lotion 200ml worth £4.99. Both products came in such a generous size and the adorable pink design on the packaging certainly brightened up my bathroom.
The scent was spot on. You could definitely detect the sharp fruity notes but the sweet chantilly cream brings the scent down to smell sweeter and more pleasant... ok and maybe yummy too!
The bath and shower creme foams up well with sweetly scented bubbles and it gently made my skin feel squeaky clean. The scent lingers on well and stays put on my skin for quite some time which is a major plus!
The hand and body lotion is my favourite out of the two simply because this lightly textured cream instantly hydrated and moistured my skin, every time I would move I could smell the scent and it's such a mood lifter too! The best thing was that it did not feel greasy in any way, the cream felt like whipped buttercream and I know I will be trying out more scents, I just cannot get enough of this gorgeously cute company.

If you are looking for bath/skin products that work, are budget friendly and have sweet scents then I definitely recommend Patisserie De Bain!

What's In My February Make-Up Bag?



πŸ’“

Is it me or did January just fly by?! Like seriously where is the time going?! I have been wanting to feature my make-up bag contents for a while but most days I was make-up free or not really using anything new. I have a few new products and I am lovin' it all so far. I am definitely looking forward to Spring make-up and using all those cute pink and peach shades but for now here's what I'll be using:

Fair and Lovely BB Cream
I love light and flawless base make-up and I hardly wear foundation so a BB cream is perfect for me. I bought this when I was in Pakistan and the Fair and Lovely brand is pretty huge in India and Pakistan. This matches my asian skintone perfectly and it blurs out imperfections really well. I guess I should of bought a bigger tube.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard
I treated myself to this later last year and I really like this stuff. This concealer was on my wishlist for SO long and I'm glad I could finally tick it off of my ever long wishlist. This blends like a dream and really covers up my dark circles and imperfections. The texture is incredibly lightweight and you can totally build up the coverage without looking too 'over done'. A gem of a product.

L'Oreal Le Blush in 105 Rose Pastel 
I like collecting pink blushers and I have been loving this blush again. This gorgeous bubblegum pink gives my complexion that 'healthy' look and it also brightens up my face too. It's super pigmented and perfect for Spring!

L'Oreal Color Riche Mono Eyeshadow in 213 Little Beige Dress 
I adore this shimmery shade but I don't use it as eyeshadow, I use it as a highlighter. I know I know but this looks insanely good paired up with the L'Oreal Le Blush and it gives my highlighter underneath that extra shimmer. This also has lil specks of green and pink glitter running through it which makes this the prettiest eyeshadow, ever!

Estee Lauder More Than Mascara in 01 Rich Black
I always go for volume when I pick mascaras but this one is perfect at defining and lengthening my lashes. I am starting to prefer the toned down look rather than having big fluttery lashes. This mascara also conditions and applies so well without any pulling or tugging. 

Kylie Lip Kit in Candy K
I finally own the most hyped up lip product ever! I was gifted this and I could not wait to rock the matte lip trend again. I have used many brands that have come out with different matte colours but I was so eager to see how this much loved product would perform. I was impressed. The pigmentation was fantastic and this warm nude shade is an everyday appropriate colour also the long lasting wear is something that we all appreciate, glad to have this in my collection.
