Loreal Caresse Lipstick in 07 (Cheeky Magenta) and 01 (Fashionista Pink)
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Fresco
No7 Extravagant Volume Mascara in Black and No7 Smoky Eyeliner

You can't even say I've been naughty in buying these beauty bits OK?! I've worked the system.

The Double Wear foundation is something I've wanted for a long time so I decided to use up my Boots Advantage Card points on it. I like it. I don't know if it's as incredible as I thought it would be or as everyone seems to say but I'm going to keep working with it.

As for the lipsticks, the two colours looked so vibrant but they look quite pathetic on. I'm actually going to take one back (01) because it's actually rubbish but the other is a lovely pink tint so I'll definitely keep it, even if it's not as "WOW" as I thought it'd be.

This newly-launched No7 mascara just had to be tried and the smoky eyeliner comes free with it at the moment (#winning). Oh, and all make-up's on 3for2 at the moment too so I actually got one of the lipsticks for free as well (#bi-winning).

Has anyone treated themselves lately, beauty-wise? 
There are lots of exciting launches coming out in the beauty world and I'm a wee bit excited.


  1. You're making me want to go out and buy lots of makeup now! I'm kind of with you on the double wear, I like it as I need good coverage but I can't help feeling caked in foundation whenever I wear it, which I hate! I normally wear a mac foundation but bought the Rimmel wake me up today after hearing so many good things! I'm excited to try it! Xx

  2. I had a bit of a splurge on makeup recently but I used my advantage card points too, so I didn't feel to guilty about it! I've never used Double Wear before but my favourite ever foundation is Double Wear Light, I love it!

  3. Everyone keeps going on about Double Wear at the moment! I hope you see the results more obviously soon, it's not exactly cheap. But the 3 for 2's an absolute steal - bargain!

  4. oo lala all the beauty stuff are just awesome! im quite addicted in buying new make-ups. recently i bought few lip liners that match my usual lipsticks, which are postbox red, peachy pink and deep plum. AND I LOVE THEM! the lipstick stays on better with the lip liner...although there is a risk of looking like 80's woman when drinking as you are wearing the lipstick and lip liner stays!! hehe.

    ive also bought a peep eye mascara that are so great, it gave my eyelashes a lovely curve- lot of people even noticed!

    sorry for the waffles!


    1. Yesss, I must try some lipliners soon! Some people use them as an all-over colour which might be good?! And don't worry, I love a good waffle ;) x

  5. Definitely keep trying with the double wear! If you have perfect or good skin then I can understand that it wouldn't have the wow factor but if you're skin isn't great then it really makes a huge difference. I love mine but its the total wrong colour so I'm always having to mix it with something else which I hate! xx

    1. Yeah, I hope mine's the right colour! I actually think the woman should have picked me a slightly lighter shade :/ x

  6. one thing i've got my eye on is the new Benefit foundation that's being launched soon...i'm sure i'll end up parting with my money for it :s

  7. Hahaha I love a good bit of working the system :L
    I'm trying to refrain because I can't genuinely say I need anything and I have no money left right now to spend frivolously unfortunately :L

    Much Love
