I heart limecrime

At last i managed to save for some Limecrime lipsticks.
I came across limecrime makeup a while ago on instagram and knew i had to have some of the lipsticks. There are some very outlandish colours which are a little bit too different for me, but each to there own. Check them out as i can gaurentee there will be a colour for you.

As you can see i went for the opaque lipsticks in 'geradium' which is a gorgeous pinky coral colour, and 'poisenberry' which i brought for a halloween costume but its all I've worn all week. its a bang on trend dark purple. They also do velevetines and carousel gloss as well, definitely planning on getting some of the velvetines!

I not only love the lipsticks i also love the packaging. Its different to what you normally see, individual and new, but staying girly, and it has sparkly bits on, how more eye catching can you get?
Both colours i found can be built up to give a deeper colour, i found the geradium to slip around a bit the more I layered it up, but to be honest it didn't really need to be built up any more i was just experimenting.
Poisenberry starts of a nice subtle purple when first applied the more i put on the deeper and more dramatic it looked, turning to a deep dark purple bordering on black. this is definitely my favourite out of the two. Not that i need anymore dark lippies in my collection.

There are so many more colours id love to try! so let the saving commence.

have your tried lime crime makeup before?

Whats the best beauty box?

Hope your all having a good weekend, i know its nearly over! (Sad face) 

So ive been thinking for a while about ditching my glossybox. At first i was always  excited about coming home from work to see that little brown box on the kitchen side, grabbing it and finding out what littlw goodies were inside. Ok so once i got excited because in all honesty i think the glossy box is crap! Ive had about 2 things ive liked in the time ive been receiving them. 

I still want to receive a beauty box but which one?!? 
Ive got my eye on the birchbox at the minute but I was wanting a few ideas from you guys?

Palmer's cocoa butter formula face care

More supermarket goodies! 
Palmer's cocoa body butter is one of the most popular moisturisers,  known for its helping hand in diminishing stretch marks, which unfortunately has never helped me but still love the stuff! It's smell is distinctive and you know when someone's used it,  and most people share my view on the smell too. Aaammaazzzinngg. I just want to eat it, which I wouldn't recommend, because it probably doesn't taste as great as it smells.

When I spotted these on offer in Asda and saw the 'new' logo on them, it was kind of obvious I was going to get them really. I have a skin care routine already but I love trying new stuff out, so got all Asda had to offer when it came to this range.

Everybody loves a good face wash, that clean fresh feeling you get after youve given your face a good wash, and this doesn't dissapoint. It smells like the palmers cocoa body butter but only slightly. Which is good because it would be too over powering as a face wash. It lathers up nicely so you dont need alot which makes the wash cost effective. Theres nothing worse than a face wash you need loads of pumps and it doesnt get you any where and before you know it you've ran out. It left my skin feeling firm and smooth and super fresh, and it didnt sting too much when i got it in my eyes too which is a bonus! 

I ran out of exfoliant a while back and never got round to getting anymore, which I can definitely tell my skin is in need if a good scrub! I've had quite a few break outs lately which I've never really suffered with. Smothering sudacream on every night just didnt seem to work. I knew the problem was deeper! I should of known really being a beauty therapist, but hey ho we can all get lazy at times! 
When I read the spiel on the back about all the beneficial ingredients I was thinking, yeah yeah whatever. I was pleasantly surprised that it was actually quite effective.

Now this stuff smelt alot more strongly of the notourious body butter but again not to over powering. I love too use a mask now and again as it makes me feel im giving my skin a little treat. It smoothed on easily and didnt feel too tight when it dries. I dont personally like the masks that go really dry as i feel like it dries my skin out too. It was easy to wash off aswell, not sticking to parts of my face so i had to scrub it off. My face definitely felt soft, smooth and well moisturised without feeling greasy.

As you can see by all the benifical ingredients listed on the back of the products theres alot of good stuff in these, and i beleive they do there job very well. I will definitely carry on using these. Even if i didnt think they worked id still use it because i love the smell! 

Any fans of palmers cocoa butter body butter?

Lasting lip tint?

Although I love my lippies, I've never really got on with lip tints or stains. I've tried the rimmel 1000 kisses lip tint and found the colour was just too weak with a pale pink colour I choose and the darker pink came off way to easy on the inner part of my lips making me look like an old 
Fashioned hooker! Not a great look, trust me! 
I've tried a few other too, but again they seem to come off me too easily and I find I prefer lipstick better for there staying power and high pigmented colours. 
That was until I saw this in the local supermarket. 
I was just browsing as always while the boyfriend was whining at me to hurry up, "you don't need any new make-up" he says. Oh how wrong he is. We always need new make-up, products etc etc right!?
The maxfactor lipfinity lasting lip tint caught my eye, there was a good selection of colours to test so decided to go through them all, letting them dry and rubbing over to see if it really would stay put. I was pretty happy with the result of staying power of the back of hand test. Unfortunately every colour I wanted they didn't have in stock(unimpressed face) obviously I couldn't go away empty handed after all that hard work of testing them out so I picked up yet another dark red! This obsession with dark reds is getting out of hand now! 
The colour I choose is number 6. It looks a lot darker on the actual lips and becomes a lot more matte aswell. It takes about a minute to dry and become less sticky and when it dries you'll be able to see bits you may have missed. I think it may of gone a bit darker as I did do a few coats. If you wanted a less obvious look just one light coat will still make your likes look plump and give that nice healthy pink colour.
 When I first applied it, I didn't have any foundation on and found it did bleed quite easily but quickly wiping with a cotton bud it solved that and didn't bleed again, even when I layered it up after. It does take quite a bit to make this budge. I'm always drinking green tea to get me through the working day and by lunch it was still going strong. After lunch I did notice it fading on the inner part of my lips, but not doing the gross lip liner look thing that it does sometimes. 
After touching up I did find it started to make my lips a bit dry. I slicked a bit of Vaseline on and it seem to sort it straight out, and didn't make the product slide of my lips either. 
Hopefully next time I visit the good old supermarket they will have more colours I can get! 

Have you tried any good lip stains or lip tints lately

A few more from Artdeco

Hello! Hope you enjoyed your Monday! Which I know is hard for many, no one really likes Mondays do they, but you know what that means, one day closer to the weekend, every cloud! 
So the lovely dee, our Artdeco rep came into show us some new goodies coming out soon, so,obviously I had to have a little purchase didn't I?

I'm always on the look out for new things for the old brows especially when bold brows are here to stay. I'm not so into the scouse brow look, I converted to a powder a while ago which I found looked a lot more natural than the pencil look. The only thing I wasn't so keen on with powder was unless I put moisturiser on my eyebrows before the powder didnt stick to my sparse bits or bald patches. 
I've seen a few eyebrow pens on the market, and always thought again they were going to give me the scouse brow look. Which I suppose if you layered it up and went for it then you could achieve it!  
After speaking to Dee about how to get that natural look, I decided to get this eyebrow colour pen.
It's so easy to use, just use strokes to give it that natural look. I'm not sure how long it will last though, I forgot to ask about that! The nibs  thin at the end so you can do your strokes as thin or as thick as you like as the harder you press the thicker the line. I beleive this is my new favourite thing in my makeup case! 

My love for lipsticks defiantly meant I had to try this little beauty from their new collection. This is cherry blossom no.466 from their high performance range. It's a perfect colour for autumn, and will fit nicely with all my other lippies. I love the dark vampy colours so as soon as I saw it i had to have it, unfortunately like my other Artdeco lipsticks I can't show you the nice retail packaging because I'm a cheap skate and got the tester instead! Again like the other artdeco lipsticks I own its very moisturising and gives a lovely gloss finish without being too much. Unfortunately it not very lasting though so I used it with my Artdeco magic fix, which is my go too lipstick fixer, and it stays perfectly. It lasted me about half an hour without the fixer which is not great especially with a statement colour like this. With the fixer though it lasted me around 5hours!! It probably would of lasted me longer but I went to to sushi and got noodles all over my chops!
