Mini Primark And Lush Haul

So this happened. I went into town and I kinda bought a few things. I always pop into Primark and Lush to check the latest stock and this time I tried really hard not go overboard and buy too much which can easily happen at these two places. I mostly bought more lifestyle bits from Primark and a few bath products from Lush.

I am so happy with my purchases from Primark, I picked up a rather huge mug, a candle, some cute earphones and an assortment of cute underwear. The mug (£2) was a random buy at the end whilst waiting in the queue, haha! I love collecting cute mugs and this one just had to be bought simply because some days you just need a big mug of tea!
I love Primark candles, so pastel and pretty! I decided to pick one up to try and I chose the Summer Rain & Forest Berries (£2) to try first, for the price, it would be rude not to pick this up and it smells so good too! Fresh and uplifting.
The cute unicorn earphones...(£2.50) that just needed to be added into my basket, because hello? who doesn't want kawaii and pastel headphones?!
Lastly some underwear (£3 for a set) I loved the cute print and colours of these, I also seem to like collecting it too!

I had finished my lil stock so it was time to pop into Lush and buy a few more things from my wishlist. I opted for two bath bombs and a bubble bar this time.
I wanted to try ultraviolet (£4.95) for sooo long and I finally picked one up, I have heard great things about this and the best thing? it smells like parma violet sweeties!
Honey Bee bath bomb (£3.50) was one product I have been meaning to try for a very long time, this one smells so sweet and comforting, it promises to soothe and cleanse the skin, which sounds brilliant!
Think pink bath bomb (£2.65) is so cute and well, I have also been wanting to try it and after seeing such fabulous reviews on it, I wanted to try out this super girly bath bomb. it's alot cheaper than the other bath bombs too!

So there you have it, my cute lil haul. Hope you enjoyed seeing the things that I picked up recently. What have you bought lately?

Brand Focus | W7 Cosmetics

W7 Cosmetics is a cute and fun make-up brand that was created back in 2002, by two entrepreneurial men and their aim was that every woman should have access to an extensive range of high quality but affordable cosmetics. The company has really grown and has had a huge makeover too! With over 500 products to choose from there is definitely something for everyone. Nothing is tested on animals and there even is an Ebony collection which is great for darker skin tones!

I was sent four products in total: Lashtastic Mascara, King Kohl Eyeliner, Kiss Me Plumping Lipgloss and a Cheeky Chaps Multi Blush. When I initially saw the products, I was mostly excited to try out the multi blush and the lipgloss, I mean how cute do they look?!

Lashtastic Mascara £4.95
This yellow tubed eye product reminds me so much of the Maybelline 'The Colossal' mascara and this one also means business. This mascara has a plastic wand and is able to coat and separate the lashes beautifully. I am able to get a good amount of volume with three coats and my lashes look oh-so fluttery and well, it definitely gives the false lash look as promised. 

King Kohl Eyeliner £3.95
First off how cute is the name? I often use eyeliners but mostly liquid. This eye pencil was easy to use, it didn't drag on my lash line and it was fairly pigmented too. You could also use this for a smokey eye and blend before applying any darker shadow, it will last longer and give the pigment more depth too. A lovely lil product to have.

Kiss Me Plumping Lipgloss £4.95
I absolutely love the bright pink chrome packing, it definitely catches your eye! This clear lipgloss smells of peppermint, which was a lovely surprise. It also give that tingly sensation since it says to plump the lips. It does give the illusion of fuller lips but this could be due to the high shine? 

Cheeky Chaps Multi Blush
This is my most favourite item out of the selection but it was the most disappointing one too. I really wanted to like this product since I heart blushers and this one contained many tones of pink/peach/brown but it really lacked in pigmentation, it just gives a tint of colour with shimmer. This can however be great for younger girls who just want to try out make-up for the first time. I hope the pigmentation improves later on so that I can buy one.

Overall I was happy with some of the products, It is such a fun brand to try out if your looking for new make-up or want something that is affordable and gives results. W7 is available in UK and outside of the UK too! Here is a list of UK stockists - link and a link of the non-UK stockists - link

New CID Cosmetics i-Pout Light Up Lipstick

Meet the NEW Revolutionary make-up product by CID Cosmetics, where beauty meets gadget. This nifty lil lipstick will be a must-have in many make-up bags and party clutches. I absolutely love mine! Read on to find out more about this neat product.

Product description
The creamy vitamin E enriched formulation of i-pout gives lasting wear in twelve classic shades, suitable for all skin tones. Featuring built-in lights and mirror, you can apply i-pout anytime, anywhere.

The packaging is oh-so luxurious, With silver casing and a simple logo this definitely is one classy lipstick. There is also a small mirror on one side of the lid which makes applications a whole lot easier. At the base of the lipstick, there is a small button which if pressed, turns on the two mini lights which makes this the ultimate beauty gadget out there.

There are a total of 12 shades ranging from nude to deep plum so there is a shade to suit everyone. I opted for the 'Bare Nude' shade since I cannot get enough of nude shades and it's one of my most worn lip colours. Bare Nude is a lovely warm/peachy nude and I have been loving wearing this particular shade lately also not forgetting to mention how pretty this looks amongst my other lipsticks on my dressing table display.

The formulation is fantastic! It's pretty pigmented and is so long lasting too! The lipstick has a matte finish so to those who prefer a matte finish and love nude shades then this is the perfect choice for you! I am able to get a good 4-5 hour wear out of this, I feel that with matte lipsticks,it lasts longer than a satin or a gloss lipstick and even if you do need to reapply, this lipstick is so easy to apply anytime and anywhere!

I'm so glad that applying lipstick on the go can now be less of a chore and more easier! From trying to find your compact mirror at the bottom of your bag to finding a light to reapply is now a thing of the past. This is definitely something to check out ladies!

Lush Wishlist

Lush Wishlist
Top row: Angels on bare skin cleanser and Ultraviolet bubble bar.
Bottom row: Karma bubble bar, Honey bee bath bomb and Milky bath bubble bar.

It's been a while since I last made a Lush wishlist and well, it's time to revisit the store and pick up some more products since I've used up my previous bath bombs and bubble bars. Good excuse right?

A best seller. This skin cleanser does everything from brightening the skin to removing excess oil and dirt. I remember owning a small pot that was given to me at a Lush event a few years ago and I remember loving it too. I love how this is a solid cleanser that you mix with water to create a paste, you can control the amount you want to use and the scent was very calming, which is a plus!

Now this is the most prettiest insta-worthy bath product out there! I really like the sound of this! From the colours to the violet and jasmine scents. What's not to love? this will give a lovely purple colour to your bath water and it even contains lustre too!

Karma Bubble Bar // £4.25
Another bubble bar that looks so interesting to try out, this one is an uplifting one thanks to the sweet orange oil but is also fresh too because of the added pine oil. I love how this looks and I can imagine pretty bath water and bubbles with this one. Something for the inner hippy in you!

Now i'll admit, I have always seen and looked past this bath bomb but after reading about it online, I definitely want to try it out. This honey scented bath bomb promises to soothe and cleanse the skin and even add moisture too. This one is a great all-in-one kinda product so I don't think I'll be disappointed with this one.

Isn't this the cutest thing ever? Cleverly shaped like a milk bottle too, this bubble bar is said to be comforting because of the added orange oil and actual skimmed milk! The added cocoa butter will also make your skin feel oh-so soft and I also like how this has no over powering colours or scents.

So these are my latest wants from Lush, What's on your Lush wishlist? Comment below!

Lush Intergalactic Bath Bomb Review

I LOVE LUSH. That's a fact and when I was in Bullring, Birmingham I popped into Lush because my bath stash had finally finished and I wanted to get some new bits *fistpump*
I wanted to try a new bath bomb and it look forever because I was stuck between this one and the experimenter. I then ended up putting this into my basket since I do love my glitter.

Product description:
Ever wondered what bathing in deep space would be like? Invite the cosmos into your bathroom with this sexy, interstellar bomb and become the guardian of your own galaxy. An awesome mix of refreshing peppermint and neon colour sends your mood rocketing, while popping candy takes you on a trip around the Milky Way. Constellations swirl and pop, creating vibrant lustre vortexes in the night sky. Before you leap too far, rogue layers of vetivert and cedarwood take hold, evoking the warmth of human contact far from home and a hint of 80s aftershave. Return from your intergalactic brief encounter as the grounding scent brings you gently back from orbit.

This bath bomb is so visually stunning, A beautiful vivid blue with streaks of hot pink and neon yellow and if that wasn't enough this bath bomb also contains popping candy and alot of gold glitter!
This contains a huge amount of peppermint which makes this a very uplifting scent but with the added grapefruit oil, the scent has a slight citrusy twist. The cedarwood and vetivert oil finishes off the overall scent by making it very fresh and exhilarating.

This ballistic puts on quite a show. Upon contact with the water, Intergalactic begins to fizz and froth away leaving a beautiful blue trail and as it continues to fizz, the pinks and yellows start to emerge which makes literally looks like mini galaxies.
I loved how the colours gradated from a vivid turquoise blue to a dark night-sky blue. The glitter is very much present throughout water and although it's very shimmery it doesn't give you a messy experience and yes, there is bound to be glitter that will settle to the bottom of the tub but it can be washed away with a quick rinse.

The peppermint oil seemed to give a cooling effect afterwards which was a pleasant surprise. My skin felt softer and moisturised too so this bath bomb does have that skin loving factor as well as turning your bath water into a fantastic colour. 
Watching the bath water was truly mesmerising, from seeing the gold shimmer pulsate to seeing the pinks and yellows take over the colour palette. I absolutely LOVED this bath bomb and I would definitely recommend it!

This bath bomb was truly a out of this world experience!

Have you tried the Intergalactic bath bomb before?

Lush Creamy Candy Bubble Bar

As much as I LOVE Lush bath bombs, I do have a few bubble bar favourites and one of them is the Creamy Candy bubble bar.
Use this for the girliest bubble bath ever! This is an old favourite of mine and I am loving the redesign! The bubble bar used to be a paler pink and alot more smaller in size but with the new version you can expect pinkier bath water and alot more uses out of it.

Product description:
If you’d normally reach for a sweet treat to lift your mood, this bubble bar does just the job. Its sweet candy floss smell raises your energy levels and perks you up. It also offers extra moisturisation than the average bubble bar as it has a blend of almond and cocoa butter. Creamy Candy contains almond oil and butter chunks that melt onto the surface of the water, giving skin a velvety texture.

Ok so first off, this smells incredible! Just like a bag of pick and mix sweets! Super sweet and it smells just the same as far as I can remember. A very sugary.vanilla scent that will make your inner kid happy! I decided to use a half of the bubble bar, you simply break it in half and crumble it under a running tap. You'll soon start to see lots of bubbles forming and it gently tints the bath water into a pretty pink colour.
The soft and sweet smelling bubbles feel oh-so soft and this was such a moisturising bath. Literally felt like a hug-in-a-tub kinda product because of the added almond oil and cocoa butter this is bound to hydrate and moisturise your skin so much that applying body lotion afterwards won't be needed.
This has such an uplifting and comforting scent, you'll instantly feel like your worries have drifted away and you'll feel refreshed and ready to face the next day.
Unlike some bath bombs, you may need to clean and rinse the tub, but with bubble bars you do not need to worry about any cleaning up, WIN!
At £2.95, it's a great little treat for yourself or someone special. If you are trying Lush out for the first time then this would make a great 'getting to love lush' product because you'll be just as hooked as the rest of the lushies out there!

Vaseline Sugar Coated Lip Therapy

Hi Lovelies! Hope you are all well!

Meet the NEW limited edition Vaseline - 'Sugar Coated'

The new catwalk inspired limited edition Vaseline will definitely be your favourite accessory this season. The dusky pink hue matches the Pantone Colour for the year 2016 - Rose Quartz. It's such a pretty shade in both beauty and fashion and you'll definitely be able to spot this colour everywhere.

The packaging is oh-so cute! On top of the tin you can see pink sugar crystals that matches the name, Sugar Coated. Initially, I thought that this would be some sort of a lipscrub and/or have some sugar particles but the name points towards being a sweeter smelling lip product.
The scent is sweet, just like a bag of pick n mix! Nothing too over powering but is definitely evident.
Wearing this gives a divine shine to the lips which is great if you want to sport a 'au natural' look.

I picked mine up from a local Asda for £2.99 and I'm so glad I have it in my collection... afterall, it's pink, cute and another limited edition.

Have you tried this new limited edition Vaseline?

Make Up Revolution I ♡ Make Up Blushing Heart Blusher Review

Hi Lovelies! Hope you all are well!

I LOVE blushers but I love them even more when they come in the most cutest form and are the perfect dupe for the pricey Too Faced sweetheart blushers. This is like the ultimate princess-y blusher that exists out there, read on to see why you need to own one in your make-up bag.

Product description:
Triple Baked Obsession - by the lovely people in the I ♡ Makeup factory - made in a 3D Heart shape! Blush Heaven - 3 shads in each blush merged together - Blush to Send You To Heaven!

The blusher comes housed in a cute heart shaped box, the box is sturdy enough and the packaging instantly brightens up my make-up bag contents.
When you open the box, you'll find three gorgeous pink shades to choose from. You can use the shades individually or you can choose to swirl your brush into all three colours to create another lovely flush of pink. I personally love the darkest pink shade, it's so pigmented and contains mini flecks of glitter that looks amazing on!
I have to commend the pigmentation since for the price, it actually exceeds your expectation. It's just like a high-end blusher.
The texture is very buttery soft and for a baked blusher, it's pretty impressive since some baked blushers I have come across seem very dry in pigment but not this one.
When worn on the cheeks, it makes me look oh so radiant and healthy. The shimmer in the pigment instantly highlights my cheeks and it gives the best flush of colour, ever!
Longevity wise, This lasts a very long time, since it's so pigmented you can count on this to stay put for hours. I also don't need to use as much since the colour pay off is remarkable.
This contains an impressive 10g of product so you won't be running out of it anytime soon. I think I'll stick to using this since this is a whole £19 cheaper than the Too Faced blusher. Overall I am so impressed with this product, it ticks all of the boxes for me. From the cute packaging to the insanely pigmented finish. I say grab this one girlies!
