Mini Elf haul disappointment.

I ordered a few things from Elf the other day and I just thought I'd share what I got because I'm not very happy with most of it. So I'l give you my honest opinion as always with these products.
All four of the items are from Elf's Minerals Collection.

So I got these two eye shadows:

One is a darkish purple and the other is a pale/goldie colour.

I'll start with the purple which is called 'Royal'.

As you can see from the picture its very shimmer which I'm not that bothered about but on terms of the colour if I'm honest I don't think I really like it. Its a very nice colour if you lightly use it but if you layer it at all it goes a very dark muddy colour which you can probably see from the picture. So I would say its okay for light use but I am disappointed as Royal says to me rich deep purple not a deep muddy colour.
Next we have the pale/goldie colour which is called 'Elegant.'

Now this one is a completely different story, its really rich in colour and layers perfectly without blotching like the 'Royal.' So I really do have great reviews for this one because its a great everyday colour if you like shimmer. I do recommend this one as it reminds me of a really nice beachy colour.

The last things I got were two lipsticks:

I will give you a review on both but to be honest they arnt good and I do feel sorry saying this because I love elf but I'm not gunna lie to you or me.

So this first one is called 'Runway Pink'

In terms of colour its completely different to what it looks like on the online picture but I'm not that bothered because its an okay colour. The problem I have with both the lipsticks is that when you first put them on they are just about okay but after a little while you lips look like they are covered in grease. This happened to me the other day when I was try them out and it looked alright when I left the house but when I got to my work it looked absolutely awful, extremely greasy and not nice to look at!
For those who want to know this one is 'Natural Nymph'
and again has the same story of turning horrible.
So to be honest I'm really not that happy with this haul except the 'Elegant eye shadow' but I would really like to know if any of you have had this problem with the lipsticks or if its just me?
Please don't be put off by Elf because they have some extremely nice products but I just wouldn't recommend these.

I've been really board with my hair recently because it's just so flat all the time, I don't have any layers any more and because my hair is so long the weight of it pulls my hair down, which basically means no volume what so ever.

I have maybe been thinking about having layers again but as my heart isn't 100% init I don't think I'm ready to give it the chop just yet.

So I came across these little beauties in Clair's Accessorise:

As you can see from the picture it's basically three small bridge shape grips that sit underneath your hair creating the volumized big hair. Which to me looked to good to pass up.

They where £10.00 for the three grips and it also comes with a mini pin tail comb and a massive booklet showing all the different styles you can do.

As I have only just got them I can't give you a full review but I will be very very soon as I'm desperate to see if they will give me some volume and stay in.

Do any of you have any tips for long hair like mine of how to volumize it or have you tried out Bumpits and got on well? Let me know.

Take care x

Lime Crime make up.

For those of you who love bright make up and I mean really love bright make up then Lime Crime is for you.

This has got to be the most brightest coloured make up i have ever seen.

So Lime Crime is a newish rage that came out in 2008 created by Doe Deere and i love the way it just makes you think of candy. As you can see from the pictures its super bright and so rich in colour! Lime Crime was a website that I came across one day and I just really wanted to share it with you because although it's really bright I am actually really interested in getting something to try.

This is the items i'm looking at:

Eye magic dust

Eye magic dust 2

Eye magic dust 3

What do you think, is the lipstick to bright and what do you think of the Magic dusts? Do you think Lime Crime is something fun and different?

I think that I may purchase a few things but I think most of it really is too bright for me although I may be wrong.

So what are your thoughts one Lime Crime?

December, let the countdown begin!

So it's that time again!
YES IT'S CHRISTMAS... (in a few weeks!)

But I for one love the countdown to Christmas I think it's just a really fun and exciting time getting ready to enjoy a beautiful day with your family. I have to say Christmas to me is just about family time, I'm not bothered about presents and expensive meals however nice they are. I'm just happy to spend sometime with my family and I just love seeing the look on my boyfriends face when he opens his stocking in the morning.

So what I would love to know is what Christmas means to you?

Take care x
