Cute Lil Primark Haul





πŸ’—πŸ‘€ Products featured:
PS...Liquid Liner £1
PS...Holographic Glitter Nail Polish £1.50
Assorted Pearl Stud Earrings £1
Pastel Pretty Make-Up Bag £3
TokiDoki Liquid Liner £1.50
Raspberry & Vanilla Mini Candle Jar £1
Wild Orchard & Honey Mini Candle Jar £1

It was that time again. I recently popped into Primark to pick up some basic bits and to basically buy more of those black leggings and black jeggings that are great for everyday wear. 
No doubt, my favourite department in Primark has always been the accessory and beauty sections and I think I walked away with some pretty good and cute products.

I spent quite a bit in the accessory section and all I could see was chokers everywhere! I didn't pick any up because I wasn't too sure if it would suit me but I definitely wanted to pick up some pearl earrings. For a mere pound you are getting six pairs of pearl studs! How could you go wrong? I'm currently wearing the biggest sized ones and i'm lovin' it!

From the home section I needed to stock up on some more candles since I love burning candles in like, every single room in the house. I saw these two and they smelt surprisingly lovely. The raspberry and vanilla candle is my favourite out of the two since it has quite a strong fruity smell and I'm excited to burn this in my living room. Cozy vibes only.

I had major heart eyes when I saw the pastel make-up bag and the holographic glitter nail polish, I just put both items straight into my basket. I was running low on liquid liner so I picked up two. One is from the Primark beauty range and the other is from a cute brand called TokiDoki. I have to admit the last one was an impulse buy because a) it was by the tills and b) how could you not resist the cute packaging. Though it was priced at £2.50, it rang up as £1.50 instead. *NOTE, should of picked up three*

So there you have it, what I picked up at Primark! What do you think of my cute lil buys?

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.


What's in your make-up bag this February?

Get Date Ready Nails With Renunail - 28 Day Challenge






πŸ’•

An exciting post to share with you today because I took part in a challenge last month with Renunail*, a challenge to get my nails date ready for Valentine's day!
I suffered with brittle and short nails for a very long time and it would just not seem to grow and having tried many cuticle oils and nail treatments, I was close to giving up. Until I started using Renunail, it changed everything!

Product description:
The Renunail range has been expertly created to banish brittle nails helping them to grow healthily and rapidly. The award­winning range has three hero products that work to strengthen weak nails that are prone to chipping, flaking, breaking and slow growing.

I was kindly sent the nail care duo, a bottle of Dr Lewinn's Renunail nail strengthener (which comes in a generous 30ml size) and a bottle of nourishing oil and used together they mean business! It claims to harden and protect nails, eliminate peeling, flaking and chipping while promoting longer and healthier looking nails. Now this was a huge claim and boy was I excited to try it out!

Renunail was certainly different compared to other nail treatments I have tested out, you simply apply a coat everyday for seven days, remove on day seven and then repeat the process until you have completed four weeks. You can also use the nourishing oil daily by massaging it on your cuticles. The oil contains sweet almond oil and jojoba seed oil and the actual strengthener contains calcium to strengthen damaged nails and camphor to sooth sensitivity as the nail grows.

I definitely noticed a difference to my nails and I was so happy to see how strong and long my nails have become. The breaking and splitting has completely stopped and now I cannot stop looking at my nails because I've never seen it so long and I definitely will continue to use this because I know this actually works.I can finally try out some nail art and treat myself to that Chanel nail polish I've been wanting to try for so long. So if you have short nails that are brittle/always breaking or if you are a nail biter then I definitely recommend you try this as soon as!

Renunail is available at all Tesco beautyworld stores.

Cute Topshop Wishlist

πŸ™ŠπŸ’•

Topshop have got so many cute things in at the moment and I wanted to show you what I have been liking LOVING *hides wallet*
I have been loving the pink hues, ruffles and the embroidery trend,that is everywhere. Here are my top 5 picks of what I want from Topshop!
First up is the Slash neck jumper in pink, what a cozy looking knit! I have been searching for the 'right' pink jumper and I can totally see myself having slouchy sundays in this pretty jumper.
Next up, a liquid black liner. I rock the cat flick nearly everyday and I love trying out liquid liners from many brands and Topshop beauty is one I haven't tried yet. The packaging is adorable and very insta-worthy too!
Now this would probably be an impulse purchase if I saw it in store, a pack of mini cute pencils. Why I picked it? probably because it's mega cute and pastelly *insert heart eyes emoji here*
This cute bangle certainly caught my eye, I love that the stone is particularly for your birth month and I'm a sucker for simple and dainty accessories.
Lastly this sky blue ruffle satin sweatshirt is just *sighs* I really like the ruffle trend and I hope it's here to stay for a bit longer since I need tops in this style.

What do you think of my Topshop picks?

Cute Star Bracelet From The Lifestyle Blogger UK Review



πŸ’–

I HEART cuteπŸ’•accessories and when this cute lil bracelet landed on my door step, I could not wait to wear it with all of my pastel coloured tops and shirts.

The lovely Becky from The Lifestyle Blogger UK kindly gifted me this and I could not be happier with the design since this is something I would totally pick.
The actual bracelet is stretchy and fits my wrist perfectly, it's comfortable to wear and has a very snug fit.
The charms are my favourite as I prefer a dainty look in jewellery rather than full on statement pieces. The charms are so so cute! The lil gold star and the diamond embellished squiggly charm finishes off this bracelet nicely. 
This is something that will never go out of style. It's definitely an item that will be easy to wear, as I can dress it up or down!

What do you think of this accessory?
