Spring Lips

With Spring round the corner i thought i'd share which lipsticks are going to be my go-to shades for Spring and probably Summer.
I'm sad i have to put my dark colours away for a few months, but i've been looking forward to playing with some orange and brighter colours and going to try to get away from my comfort of nudes.

[left to right] MAC Pure Zen, MAC Kinda Sexy, KIKO 02, Rimmel 110

These are four lipsticks I'm going to get a lot of use out of during the warmer months.

Mac Pure Zen is a must have in your collection, its a sheer pinky peach shade and i wear this all year round, it's a lipstick you can put on top of any colour if you want a bit of shine, and i find that when i do this it makes my lips look just that bit more bigger.

Mac Kinda Sexy is a beautiful matte pinky peach, its a really wearable colour and you can probably tell that I'm really digging peach nudes at the moment, they just bring a little Spring twist to the table.

Kiko 02 is a cool toned pink, and i'm really not a bold pink type of girl. But with this pink, its in the middle of a bold and a natural, so to me it seems wearable, it still makes a statement but unlike a fuchsia it doesn't take all the attention.

Rimmel 110 is a beautiful red with some orange undertones, it looks very red in the swatch, but if you look in store you will see it pulls orange, i think this is very similar to MAC lady danger but this is half the price.

I quickly swatched the lipsticks for you without any liner because i wanted to get the true colour across, I'm a bit disappointed that the Rimmel 110 didn't come out very well, so bare in mind its more orange.

What are your Spring shades?

Everyday Makeup

My current every day makeup, i will be changing it up when we come more into Spring but for the last month or so I've been loving these products and think its a light introduction into the warmer weather.

Rimmel Lashing Finish 25 hour Foundation: It took me a while to warm up to this foundation but i am loving it, its full coverage but the comfort serum really does it for me. Even Ivory is a tad too dark for me. Shameful i know.

MUA Undress Your Skin: I brought this and never really gave it a chance but i think this is perfect for a everyday highlight because sometimes a shimmer brick is just a bit too much for early morning hours.

Rimmel Stay Matte in Transparent: Of course this would be in my everyday makeup, its cheap and cheerful and sets my makeup in place.

S&G Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in Nudist: I'm lazy i can't deal with the liner, lipstick and gloss. I just pop some of this on and it gives a really nice shine with a nice darker nude colour and makes your lips look big. Bonus.

Nars Laguna Bronzer: This bronzer is great for warming up the face and as its coming into Spring, i thought this would make a appearance again.

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Creamy Beige: A really nice everyday colour, i think this would compliment a lot of people and so quick to apply, no brushes needed.

Bourjois Blush in Rose Ambre: As we are coming into Spring i thought a nice pink blush would be suitable and look at the cute packaging.

Urban Decay Perversion: My HG mascara, although i consider this a night time mascara i find it quick to put on and I'm happy with the results from one layer for day time.

Anastasia Brow Wiz in Dark Brown: Another HG product, i cannot live without this. During the day i use this with a light hand to get a more natural brow.

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Chantilly: This concealer is suitable for under the eyes and blemishes, although its not very yellow i still like to pop this under the eyes just for a little lift.

Empties #1

Over the past few months of blogging, I've been meaning to do a empties, then i realised I'm so awful at empties because i throw everything away, but after 6 months, I've done it and a very small pathetic one of that.

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish (sample sized):
 I brought the Cleanse and Polish and got this little sample. I love this, i wish it hadn't took me so long to give in. I don't find it drying and my skin hasn't reacted badly to it.

Clinque Liquid Facial Soap Oily (sample sized):
 I always got the Clinque 3 step, and i did love it, but I'm so glad I've finished because now i can dive into more cleansers, i also used the moisturiser which was my favourite but i kind of cut it up to get the most out of it. I think the 3 step is really great if your new to skincare.

Lee Stafford Treatment For Hair That Never Grows Past A Certain Length: 
I loved this, the smell was like a lush bomb, but having a few weeks away from it, I've realised it didn't really do much to my hair, although i might buy another one for pampering nights.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water: 
I go through this like water. I love this for my eye makeup and i usually take this across my face to get most of my face makeup off then use my Cleanse and Polish.

 This is over night treatment i got for my blemish marks, and it helped a lot, i would defiantly recommend going to your doctors to get this, the only downside is that you can't use a moisturiser with this.

Rimmel Stay Matte in Ivory: 
This is a old foundation (can you tell?) but i found this and it was my holy grail foundation a year back, when looking at pictures, i remember this being cakey and drying.

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge:
I wont go into detail with this, you know the drill, i love using this damp for my concealer, but recently I've been using it for foundation and i just love it guys, i really do.

Collection Concealer in Light:
Again, you know the drill. No matter what concealer i use, this one always ends up back in my hand, its amazing at working its magic on concealing blemishes, and can go under the eyes as long as you set it with a powder.

Soap and Glory Archery in Brownie Points:
I feel bad because brow wiz overtook this little one, i still have a brand new one that is just waiting for my brow wiz to run out. I love the felt tip and the crayon, i also want to get my hands on the new brow crayon with a spooly.

The winner of my giveaway has been contacted!
Thank you everyone who entered and I'm sure they will be another giveaway soon!

The Disney Tag

Tag time!
I love a good tag, and a Disney one, bonus!

A scene in any Disney movie you wish you could experience?
This was a hard tie between flying with peter or flying on a magic carpet, i would probably have to say flying with Alladin on a magic carpet while singing 'A Whole New World'

An unforgettable experience moment you've had at the Park?
I went to Disney Land Paris, and the most unforgettable moment was seeing the castle up close, i can just remember thinking how much smaller it looks on tv, although it was a bit disappointing when its just stops inside..

What Non-Disney song(s) that reminds you or brings back memories of Disney and or the Parks?
I don't know why, but the song 'Popular' from Wicked comes to mind, if the princesses was a little bit more sassy, i feel like this could be Disney.

When was the first time you went to a Disney Park?
I was 10 or 11 when i first went with my family, but i went again when i was 14 for the best school trip ever.

If you could choose any of the characters to be your best friend who would you choose?
I thought so long on this question and it would be Alice. I feel like she gets left out since she's not a princess and rumour may have it she liked a magic mushroom or two, but hey ho.

Who are you favourite Disney Princesses?
Ariel, Rapunzel (Tangled) and Anna.
Honestly i never really loved the princesses too much because i was usually jealous.

Name a scene/moment in any Disney movie that never fails to make your cry?
Dumbo! When the mother has a broken heart and gets locked up and she cradles Dumbo and 'Baby Mine' plays, I'm not ashamed to say i watched it the other day and cried like a sucker.

Whats the first Disney movie you remember seeing?
The Jungle Book!

What is your favourite Disney Movie?
Peter Pan, not sure why, but I've always fancied him, the original, the remake with Jeremy Sumpter like yaaaas and at the theatre. Just something about him.

I tag everyone!
Come on people its Disney!

Hope you enjoyed this tag
