New lip products

Lately I seem to be buying a lot of lip products, untill I started reading blogs I didnt own any lipsticks but now I love them and they are fast becoming one of my fave peices of make up!
Recently I have bought quite a few and here they are:
Left to Right, (Back), w7 Apricot Brandy, Maybelline Color sensational in 112 Ambre Rose, Bourjois lovely rouge in Rose Essential, Natural collection sheer natural lip colour in Sorbet, Natural collection moisture shine lipsticks in Crimson and Candy mist.
(Front) No7 High shine lipglosses in Flirt (peachy) and Caress (pink)

This is them all without flash

And with flash.

Id have to say that one of my faves is the w7, its such a natural lovely colour and only cost £1 from T J hughes and another would be the maybelline ambre rose, its such a gorgeous colour and lasts for ages. I got this one on offer at Boots as part of the new range. Im keen to try out some of the other colours, I was having a look today and there is another in Hollywood red which looks lovely.
I got the natural collection lipsticks today on a 3 for 2 offer so I got all 3 for £3.90 in Boots! I really wanted a wearable red lipstick as being fair skinned I find dark colours very draining and Im hoping with abit of fake tan the crimson one will work out for me! Going to go back and get 3 more tomorrow I think as I have over £5 in points and there were quite a few more of their lipsticks which I liked.
Also, check out this great give away over at Just Jen, there are some great prizes! and watch out my giveaway soon, I have to buy a few more prizes yet though.

Im back with wedding photos!

Hiya everyone, so firstly I want to say sorry for this being my first post in 2 weeks! I have been going through a horrible time having split up with my boyfriend who I was with for 3 years and I havent felt up to doing anything! So my first post is about my older sisters wedding which I was a bridesmaid at on saturday 29th august! It was such a lovely day and here are alot of photos from the day: (click on them to see them in alot better quality, not sure why they are looking crappy on here)

This is me on the right, my younger sister in the middle and my sisters kids before the ceremony started,

And again with my grandma

This is my sister and her husband after the ceremony when they signed the register

Me and my sister at the reception, I was pretty drunk by this point..

The married couples first dance which was the cutest thing ever

And me and a friend..

Here is the make up which I used on the day!

I used:

  • Loreal studio secrets smoothing resurfacing primer

  • Collection 2000 sheer moist foundation in sheer porcelain

  • E.l.f under eye concealer and highlighter

  • Collection 2000 volume sensation in waterproof (amazing)

  • Natural collection eye shadows in Butterscotch and Willow

  • Natural collection blush in Pink cloud

  • Sleek storm palette

  • Mac eye kohl in teddy

  • 17 bronzing powder in light

  • E.l.f powder brush

  • Elizabeth arden kabuki brush

  • Maybelline color sensational in 11 Ambre rose

  • 17 High gloss nail polish in Raspberry mocha

That seems alot now that I have written it out in a list lol.

I am loving collection 2000 so much at the moment, its so cheap but works so well, the sheer moist foundation is amazing for me as it just feels so smooth and covers my eczema where as other brands just seem to stick to it, and the volume sensation mascara is amazing too, just as good as the false lash effect I usually use, I have since bought this in the normal non waterproof version too!

Hope this wasnt to photo heavy and boring :)
