Review: Rimmel Wonder'full Mascara

Mascara is probably one of my favourite makeup products as it can instantly make your eyes look bigger and better. I saw the Rimmel Wonder'full Mascara in Superdrug and thought I'd give it a try as I've seen it mentioned on some blogs lately and I love trying new mascaras.
Rimmel Wonder'full Mascara (1)
I'm not entirely sure what colour the tube is, maybe a coppery colour, other than that it's a pretty basic mascara tube. The wand is kinda fat with plastic bristles which I actually prefer to the normal bristle wands.

I found the mascara really easy to apply and I think it coated everyone of my lashes, even the little ones. The mascara didn't clump at all and it separated my lashes wonderfully.

I applied 2 coats of mascara for the above effect. As you can see it really lengthens the lashes. It doesn't thicken the lashes as much as I'd like but maybe with a few more coats that would help.

You can buy this for £7.99 from Superdrug.

It's a good mascara and perfect if you want to lengthen your lashes. I'll probably wear this day to day but it's not my favourite at the moment.

Have you tried this mascara? Let me know what you think of it?

Makeup: Jessica Rabbit

Halloween's nearly here, one of my favourite holidays. This year I wanted to do some Halloween looks for you so first up is a Jessica Rabbit look. I actually went as Jessica Rabbit to a party about 4 years ago, I love the look and thought I'd do it again.

The makeup is quite easy really as she just wears some purple eyeshadow with red lips. Here's the look I created and you can find the products I used at the end of this post.
Unfortunately the dress I used for this look doesn't fit me at the moment so I can't show you it on. All you need though is a red dress (you can find some here, here and here), a pair of red shoes (you can find some here and here) and some purple gloves (you can find some here and here).

Review: Sleek Blush in Life's A Peach

This is the first Sleek blusher I've bought apart from the one that's included in my Face Form Palette. I saw this in the shop and thought the colour was really lovely. Like the name suggests, the blusher is a peach shade but quite a vibrant peach.
The packaging is very plain, just black with Sleek's logo on the top but I quite like it. There's a mirror included in the lid which is quite a decent size so will be handy for on the go.

The blusher looks quite bright in the packaging but when it's applied it comes out more muted and you can build it up for a more intense colour. I used a blusher brush to apply this and it blended out really nicely on my skin.
The blusher has a matte finish on the skin. The wear time is really good as it lasted on my cheeks pretty much the whole day. Although I find blushers stay on my skin quite well anyway.

You can buy this for £4.49 from Superdrug.

I think this is a really lovely blusher and I'm sure I'll be buying more blushers from Sleek in the future.

What do you think of the Sleek blushers?

Review: Bellapierre Cosmetics Lipstick in Ruby

I've only tried a few products from Bellapierre but they've all been really good. In a recent Glossybox I received a Bellapierre lipstick in the shade Ruby which is a gorgeous bright red.
The packaging is quite sleek with some criss-cross detailing on two sides of the tube. The lid clicks into place very securely so it won't be falling off.
I applied this to my lips straight from the tube and it went on really smoothly. The product is quite opaque and only needs one coat to cover the lips. Normally I'd apply this with a brush so I can get a much crisper line which I think you need with bright colours like this.
Sometimes I find it difficult to tell the finish of some lipsticks but I'd say this one has a bit of a sheen finish to it as it's not completely matte. The wear time is pretty good as it lasted at least 5-6 hours without needing to be re-applied.
You can buy this directly from the Bellapierre site for £20 but you can actually get it for just £9.50 at Lookfantastic.

I'm really impressed with this lipstick and I love the colour so I'm planning to wear it a lot this fall.

Have you tried any lipsticks from Bellapierre?

Wishlist #14 Knitwear

This weeks wishlist is all about knitwear as it's gradually getting colder here in the UK. I've actually had to start wearing a jumper/cardigan some days the past couple of weeks so here's a few that I've got my eye on.

Outfit: Jeans & T-Shirt

Today's outfit is rather casual and comfy with some plain denim jeans and a t-shirt. I actually bought this t-shirt the other day and I thought it was going to be a bit looser than this. I probably should have bought the next size up but I still like it. I've also got on a new bag which has bunny ears, so cute!
Top - Asda
Jeans - Very
Shoes - Very, Similar
Bag - eBay

Blog Update #2 New design

My new design is here. Woo!!

I've gone for quite a simple look as I haven't learnt enough about web design yet to do anything too fancy. I wanted the main colour to be raspberry so I've used that throughout the design and header. I've also added new links in my menu for Beauty, Fashion and Lifestyle so you can just view posts related to each category.

Let me know what you think of the new design and I'll be back to regular blogging from Friday.

Blog Update #1 New design coming soon

I've wanted to change my blog design for a while so the last few months I've been working on a new design. It hasn't been easy and I've changed my mind about a million times but I've finally got something I'm happy with.

I'm probably going to take my blog down while I install the new design so if you pop on over and can't see anything that's why. I'm hoping it won't take me too long to install and then my new design will be live and I can get back on track with blogging regularly.

I'm planning to do this sometime this week, hopefully earlier rather than later but I've just got a new job and I will be working late nights so I'll have to see how it goes.
