Swap with the lovely Estee! part 2

Part two is all on the beautiful ‘Majolica Majorca’ products Estee bought me and I have to say I love every single thing she picked out.

I’m gunna start with the lovely little eyeshadows she bought me. So from left to right:
Majolica Majorca Shadow Customize – BL724 (Greeny blue)
Majolica Majorca Shadow Customize – SV821 (Browny sliver)
Majolica Majorca Shadow Customize – BE286 (Goldy orange)
Majolica Majorca Shadow Customize – SV830 (Slivery gray)
The textures are amazing they are so pretty I’ve already come up with an everyday look with them and the colours she picked are all colours I would go for so thank you so much Estee.
Next she sent me:
Majolica Majorca Perfect Automatic Liner – BR601 (Brown with black and gold hints)
Majolica Majorca Lash Beautifying Mascara Frame Plus – BK999 (black)

I love this colour I think it’s so much better than the boring black I always use.
This mascara really made me smile this is something I’ve been trying to get my hands on for a very very long time so I’m really grateful I got it. When you first pull it out it looks like its covered in hairs but really it’s not it’s just the formula and I actually really like it I can’t wait to try it properly.

She also sent me:
Majolica Majorca Rouge Majex Lipgloss – PK211 (nude colour)
Majolica Majorca Cheek Customize - 88 (Light pink)

Again like the eyeshadows the texture is great on the blusher and I love the colour it’s just really pretty.

This lipgloss is beautiful I think is a really pretty nude pinky colour and it just smells amazing I love it.

I saved the best till last:
Majolica Majorca Majolook Trick On – GR750 (Light pink, Dark green, Dark blue, Cream)
Majolica Majorca Majolook Luminoustic – BR788 (Dark brown, Medium brown, Light brown)
These little Palettes just bring a smile to my face there so pretty there packaging and the product itself. The textures again amazing and the colours are perfect! I love them.

I wanna say the biggest thank you I can to Estee, for agreeing to do this with me, buying me all this and sending it and just sending me the most beautiful products ever! There isn’t one thing I don’t like they will all be used and loved. So again Estee THANK YOU I really hope you enjoyed the things I sent you, I hope we can do this again sometime and ill send you more things perhaps some Barry M for you next time.

You should all have a look at Estee’s blog its beautiful so thank you again and I see you as a lovely new friend I hope we stay in touch.

Take care x

Swap with the lovely Estee! part 1

A few weeks back I decided to do a swap with the lovely Estee of ‘Cherry’ and I was so happy when she said yes because her blog is one of my favourites she writes lovely things. So we both got to work in buy products for each other and this is what I got together for her:

I tried to give her as much as I could as posting was rather expensive. The products I put in are all ones that I love and think are really good everyday items.

For the makeup I bought her (From the left to right starting from the top):
Elf warm bronzer
Sleek palette – Original
Elf Brightening Eye Colour – Luxe
Elf nail polish – gum pink
NYX round lipstick – Celene
NYX round lipgloss – Sorbet
Elf Brightening Eye Colour – silver lining

Elf all over colour stick - Lilac Petal

And for the rest of her gifts I got:
Refreshers strawberry flavour
X2 flumps
Haribo strawberries
Harribo jolly jellies
Options hot chocolate - white chocolate
H&m face masks – strawberry and raspberry
X2 body shop vitamin E samples
Miko cat nail file
Hair stick

I also made her a card which will have her name in the middle.

I really really hope you enjoyed all your goodies Estee!
Now on to the amazing things I was sent. It’s in two parts because there is so much, I will try and keep it quick and simple.

Yesterday I ran to the post office to pick up my lovely package from Estee and when I opened it all I could do was smile, she had given me loads of amazing Japanese products which was a dream come true for me because I love Japanese makeup!

First thing I did was read the beautiful card because it was covered in roses and bows (my favourite!) What was written in side was just so lovely and personal and I really loved it so thank you Estee for taking the time to write that for me.

Okay so let’s start with what I got first off I’m gunna start with the beautiful pair of earrings she sent me because they are just so pretty. (sorry its the wrong way.)
Next was SKINFOOD! I’ve wanted to try out Skinfood for ages now and I’m really happy I’ve now got the chance. She sent me:
Skinfood – Aloe Vera Foaming Cleanser
Skinfood – Black Bean Nose Pack
Skinfood – Capuccino Mousse Foam
Skinfood – Food Therapy Water in Pear Essence
Plus some really pretty jem body stickers that will look so cute around my belly bar.

She also sent me a full Skinfood product Skinfood – Peach Sake Pore BB Cream SPF20 PA+, which I can’t wait to try out because it smells amazing.

The next product is something I’ve never had anything like before and also Estee left a note on the bottom say it was famous in Japan which made me love it even more. The product is ‘Palgantong Make-Up – Theatrical Powder Original Beige’ the texture is just so soft and lovely on the skin as it feels so light.

She also got me a lipgloss from Stila in ‘Apricot 08’ which again was great because I haven’t got round to try out Stila products yet and I really like the colour of this.

So that was part one with some beautiful things, part two is all the ‘Majolica Majorca’ products she bought me. Thank you Estee I love everything!

Another ELF update.

Yes it’s another ELF update I do apologise but it’s a good one. Before I start I just want to say another apology I haven’t been posting for you in a while due to the fact I’ve just started my new course and in all honesty I hate it so I've been quite down about it, but I will be back to my full time blogging very soon sorry guys.

Now the ELF part, as normal I was looking through make up websites and I noticed that ELF had completely revamped there website and products! They’ve introduced so many new products that I can’t wait to try out! But the best part is there now even cheaper!! So I will defiantly be placing an order and doing another review for you, manly the studio range because I love the look of their eye shadows.

So I do apologise for not posting but I will be doing alot more and not just ELF.

Take care x

Alexandras Package!!!

I received my package from Alexandra for coming 3rd in her competition, I dressed up as a Greek goddess which I can tell you was great fun! I along with the 1st and 2nd place where aloud to take it in turns to pick prizes and I have to say I’m really really happy with what I picked. Being 3rd I was aloud to pick four items so this is what I picked:

Gosh lip gloss – 009
Barry M nail polish - 134 yellow
Collection 2000 gel eyeliner - 1 glitz
Batiste dry shampoo – tropical

As you can see from the picture Alex not only was kind to send all that to me but also to add one of my favourite face masks!!!!! A chocolate bar and a very very lovely letter that was so sweet because it was personal to me so I love the fact she took the time to get to know me. I do hope to stay good friends with Alex as she’s just gone through a very hard time, bless her.

So for the swatches and proper piccys here we go:
First of all I chose the Gosh lip gloss in number 009, because I have always wanted to try out Gosh’s lip glosses but have not got round to it yet so that was a great pick. Plus it’s a nude colour which I love!

Next was something very different for me as I’ve never really bought anything from Collection 2000 purely because I’ve had some bad reviews but they couldn’t be more wrong I love this glitter eyeliner it’s a beautiful silver colour that actually stays on more then an hour! So I was really pleased I went for something different because the outcome was great!

Next was a Yellow nail polish by Barry M which was another gamble because yellow nail polishes don’t always work out great for me but like the Collection 2000 one I love it! The colour is bright but a nice bright and I can’t wait to paint my nails with it.

So lastly was a product that I had heard alot about but never been brave enough to buy. My last pick was the Batiste dry shampoo in tropical, now I’ve never used a dry shampoo before so this was a great chance for me to give it ago. I haven’t had a chance to try it out yet but I can’t wait because it smells amazing!!!

I defiantly think the face mask and chocolate go great together and that face mask is my fav because it smells amazing! Nice idea there Alex!

So again thanks so much to you Alex I loved everything and the extra bits where so sweet of you, I hope I can send you something one day. Best wishes for you and your blog.

Shoe love!!!!

Say hello to my new babies....

I saw these bad boys on Yunies blog and I fell in love, the down side though was there price I believe it was about $148.00 which is about £90.28 rather alot so saddened by the fact I couldn’t afford them I went on holiday and totally forgot about them. Then one fine sunny day I left the tent to go shopping. Looking around the shops in a daze I suddenly stopped......

Was it.... it was I had spotted the exact same shoe standing on the highest shelf with a price tag of £30! So naturally I ran in grabbed them and shouted gimmie gimmie gimme!

Still to this day I love them, there is absolutely no difference between the ones Yunie got and the ones I did except the name and the price, thats it. I feel amazing in these shoes I just want to wear them 24/7.

This is the real ones so you can see what i mean about there being no difference.
If you love high heels like i do, go get these shoes there just beautiful!!!

NYX Nails 'Christine' (134).

This was one of the NYX colours I ordered from '' and it’s basically just a natural fleshy colour but if I’m 100% honest I don't know if I like it enough to wear it more than a day. Although I have tested it with white tips and it seems to look okay for that so not all hope is lost.

But I was very happy with the price at $3.25 which is basically £1.98 BARGIN!!

Take care x
