My top 5 bronzers feauring Chanel, Benefit, theBalm, Bobbi Brown and Nars





I've been a fan of bronzers for a long, long time because I love to have a bit of colour in my face & I regularly wear fake tan, but I also use them to contour when I can't be bothered to do the whole cream contour thing! Today, I am sharing my top 5 bronzers with you. They are in no particular order to be honest because I love them all.

Recent purchases #16 featuring Smashbox, Too Faced, Marc Jacobs & more!




Most of the products that I am sharing with you today were bought from Rose's Beauty Store. I know that some people think it is very expensive, but there is no tax added on at the checkout stage (like on Sephora.com) and no nasty customs charges on arrival. I think it's good for products that we can't get our hands on on this side of the Atlantic & shipping is very cheap - £3.50 per order and it took 9 days to get here from the date of shipping. Overall, I am very happy with the service! (I'm not being paid/sponsored/compensated for saying that. I paid for all of these things myself!)


YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick #13 Pink In Paris





I bought this YSL Rouge Volupte Shine lipstick a few months ago and kind of forgot about it until recently because it is more of a Spring/Summer shade & I have been wearing a lot of red/berry & dark nude lips over the Autumn/Winter.

Addicted to Blush Tag





I saw this tag on Kitsch Snitch's blog last week & thought it was right up my street because I am a true blush addict so decided to do it today! 

REVIEW: Lancome Teint Miracle foundation, if you have dry skin, you will love this!





I have a good number of foundations in my collection, which I previously shared here. This is not only because I am a foundation junkie, but also because my skin's needs change depending on how it is behaving - sometimes I feel I need some extra coverage & sometimes it just needs to be evened out. My skin is dry & sensitive & I favour a dewy look to my skin & always strive to achieve radiance. At the moment, I am loving Lancome Teint Miracle Bare Skin Perfection Foundation. If you have dry skin & want dewy skin and not to look caked in foundation, then you will love this foundation too & here is why: it totally lives up to its name. It really is a your skin, but better; much, much better ,foundation! It was a very brightening effect on the skin and on even the dullest skin days, I can rely on this to make me look more alive & well.

Empties & speedy reviews #8 featuring Tarte, Elemis, Therapie, Origins, Lush & more!





I find it so satisfying when my Ursula Celano dressing table tidy is full of empties! I used to have far too many unloved & unused products on my shelves/in my drawers so it feels great to actually finish so many products. Last year I promised myself that I had to start using products up or pass them on because the situation was getting ridiculous! Today, I have a mixture of body & skincare products along with some make-up & a fragrance.

Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick in Velvet Underground






I recently purchased two Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks and today am sharing my thoughts on the second one, which is from the K.I.S.S.I.N.G range. I was so tempted by the nudes, but thought I should choose a colour completely different from anything I already own, so decided on Velvet Underground, which is a beautiful, bright pink, but has that blue undertone that makes your teeth look whiter - result! Also, it has been on my wishlist for quite a while. This lipstick is very pigmented - literally one swipe & I am done! I find that it lasts about 6 hours on my lips before I need to re-apply and I'm pretty happy with that. It has a nice, creamy consistency and definitely does not feel drying at all, which I really like. I am really happy to have this lipstick in my collection & feel very 'done' with it on.

A dupe for Charlotte Tilbury's Dolce Vita Palette




You might remember a couple of weeks ago when I reviewed my beloved Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita palette that I mentioned I had found a very similar budget palette that I wanted to share with you. It is not an exact dupe, but it's pretty damn close & for the many people who don't have £38 to spend on an eyeshadow quad (or just don't want to!), this might be just the product for you!

Dr. LeWinn's Renunail 3 step programme review





After my recent disaster with an awful base coat, which saw all of my nails break & chip, I decided that I needed to invest in a product to really help get my nails back on track and strengthen them again. I usually have every strong nails so to have them all short & broken was irritating me & I wanted a product that would work quickly. After doing some research, I decided on Dr LeWinn's Renunail Nail Strengthener and when I looked on Feel Unique, I found that they had the 3 step programme reduced in the sale to only £19.89 so I bought that to give my nails the Rolls Royce treatment!

Recent purchases #15 featuring Rimmel, Inglot, Essie & more!




I've bought a random few bit & bobs that I thought I would share with you today. First up is the Rimmel Glam 'Eyes HD 5 Colour Eye Shadow in Brixton Brown, which I think it pretty similar to Charlotte Tilbury's Dolce Vita Palette (comparison post coming soon). At £6.99, this is a bargain! Also from Rimmel, I bought their Finishing Touch 3D Plumping Top Coat. My Seche Vite top coat is running low & getting gloopy, so I thought I would give this a try for a change and at £4.49, it is hard to go wrong! Keeping in the nails theme, I also bought a new base coat because the one I have been using recently completely ruined my normally strong, healthy nails. I bought Essie's Grow Stronger Nails Base Coat, which I am hoping will help the nail situation. I will report back on this.

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick: Lost Cherry






I'm having a bit of a Charlotte Tilbury love in at the moment. Any product that I have tried from the brand, I have loved and last week I decided it was high time I tried one of her lipsticks. There are so many to choose from that it was difficult to decide, but I finally decided on one from her Matte Revolution range & one from the K.I.S.S.I.N.G range. Today, I am showing you Lost Cherry, which is a matte lipstick.

My favourite nude lip liners featuring MAC, Too Faced, Charlotte Tilbury, Urban Decay & No. 7






I've always been a fan of a nude lip - in fact, it was really only last year that I started to wear bright colours on my lips. Prior to that, I was all about the nude & whilst I was tidying my make-up drawers recently, I realised that I have quite a few nude lip liners & I thought I would share them with you today.

Currently loving: Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 hour Tipsy blush






If, like me, you are a lover of coral blushes then this product will be right up your street! Tipsy is the only Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 hour blush that I own and although I have owned it for a while, I have only recently re-discovered it and am loving it again.

Some MAC purchases: Soar Lip Pencil & Desert Rose Blush






A few weeks ago, I told you that I finally succumbed and bought MAC Brave lipstick & Whirl Lip Pencil. Whilst Whirl works very well with the lipstick, I thought that Soar might just be the perfect match, but it was out of stock at the time of ordering. When I received an in stock notification, I jumped on it immediately because I knew if I didn't, it would inevitably be out of stock again for a few months all the while building my desire for it and I would be kicking myself. I am so glad that I bought it - it is not as brown toned as Whirl and because of that, it is the exact perfect match for Brave. it almost has a mauve undertone, which is quite subtle. It looks great on the lips on it's own or paired with Brave. I am so glad to have this in my collection!

Worst nail base coat EVER! Poshe Fast Drying Base Coat



I don't like being a Negative Nancy, but sometimes a product comes along that is just so bad, that you don't want other people to waste their hard-earned cash on it & today is one of those days. A little while ago, I needed a new base coat for my nails. I am not loyal to any particular brand in this area & had been using a sample bottle of the Ciate base coat that was in my 2013 Advent Calendar for ages so I just randomly chose one.

Two L'Occitane bath time favourites for winter!




For the past few weeks, my skin has been seriously loving this bath time combo from L'Occitane: Almond Shower Oil & Almond Delicious Paste, which is a body scrub. My skin was feeling pretty dry from the combination of central heating, hot baths and open fires so I knew I needed to up my game to get some moisture back into my scaly limbs! I re-purchased these products because they are definitely the best products for hydrating my skin & the combination of using both together now means that my skin is nice & soft & baby smooth again. I use the shower oil daily and the scrub 3 times a week, which is just right for this time of year.

Whittling down the wishlist #2: Charlotte Tilbury Purchases









Okay, I admit it - I am an eye shadow palette addict! I know that I didn't actually need to buy any more eye shadows, but I really, really wanted this palette & have done for so long now and last week, I was having a really crappy day so I decided that the Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita palette would be the perfect thing to cheer me up and take my mind off my test results & scans. I have the Golden Goddess palette already & adore it and Dolce Vita was next on my list of must-have Charlotte Tilbury products and it has not disappointed.
