Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah

Just a Random post.
I am REALLY pissed off.
I took loadsa photos for Haul Posts this past week.
I cannot for the life of me, find my camera lead for the laptop!
I remember putting it into the bottom drawer.
It has since VANISHED!
Hence the delay on the Haul posts if anybody cares :)
Also I am counting down the days til the 15th October......
Could it go ANY slower :( BOREDOM!

BY THE WAY.........

Has anyone seen or heard of this show?? "Blush:The search for the next great makeup artist" I was flicking around on Sky Digital, came across a channel called REALLY and this show was on! And of course, with my luck, it was the second last episode! Cant believe it! This is totally MY KINDA SHOW! I've been trying to find episodes online but to no avail :(
But the episode I did watch was SO GOOD! The contestants had to recreate makeup looks made famous by the Hollywood Icons such as Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn. It was fascinating watching them make up the models and put their own modern twist into it.

Thanks for reading :) xx

Lush Lush, Lush Lush

SO......I haveta admit, I have NEVER tried anything from Lush :( It has never really been a problem....until now! I usually walk past the shop or if I do go in, its literally for a bout 2 minutes and them I'm outty! But recently I've been watching more and more youtube videos and reading more and more blogs all LUSH related and have decided its time for my first ever Lush purchase!! I don't know when this is going to be, I suppose next time I'm in the Lush shop in town! :) So If anyone has any recommendations of what you think my first Lush product should be, I'd LOVE to hear them!

Here are some Lush Products I likey the sound of:

Ma Bar Bubble Bar
Porridge Soap
Honey I Washed The Kids Soap

Any opinions?? xx

Review - NO.7 Mattifying Makeup Base

  • Retails for 14.99 EURO in Boots which isn't too bad compared to some of the prices out there!
  • It's a lovely pearly white colour. The packaging is a decent size considering only a small amount of product is needed.
  • On the back of the tube, it says it can be worn alone or under your foundation however I would not suggest wearing it on its own.
  • Its mattifies the skin the second it is applied. When I first got it, I had no makeup on and decided to try it out on its own which was not a very pleasant experience for my skin :( It's very hard to blend into the skin (which apparently you arent supposed to do??) and leaves the skin feeling rough.
  • SO.....I ALWAYS apply a layer of moisturiser first, leave it a few seconds to soak into the skin and then quickly blend the primer over it!
  • I find foundation goes on so smoothly on top of it with absolutely no shine. It truely does give that matte effect. I use little or no powder as the foundation looks already set.
  • I would highly recommend this product. It is the first primer i've ever used and am interested in any other primers out there if anyone could suggest a few good ones??

Hope this post was helpful! COMMENT :) xxx
