NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream


NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream might just be my new favourite lipsticks, I am in love with the formula and they wont break the bank. The little tubes that look like a lip gloss actually contain a creamy lipstick that dries matte and locks on to your lips. The doe foot applicator makes it easy to apply to the shape of your lips and after the formula locks to your lips feeling light and creamy before drying completely matte. The staying power is good you get around 4 hours wear depending on how much you eat and drink, also the more pigmented the shade the longer it lasts. There is a great range of shades in the NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Creams lots of nudes, pinks and some darker vampy shades. The shades pictured above are: Stockholm, Morocco, Abu Dhabi and Transylvania.
Stockholm is a cool toned peachy nude.
Morocco is a gorgeous orangey red.
Abu Dhabi is a browny nude (I love to build this one up).    
Transylvania is a vampy deep purple.
Stockholm and Abu Dhabi make for perfect everyday nudes or go perfectly with a smokey eye, Morocco and Transylvania are both stunning stand out shades. These lip creams are really affordable at £5.50 and for the price they are excellent, you can buy now NYX Cosmetics in the UK at Boots and ASOS.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit


I got it! After having my eye on the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit for what felt like the bulk of last year I finally got it for Christmas. I really got into contouring last year and have bought my fair share of contour kits and palettes while lusting after this one from ABH. Anastasia Beverly Hills offers two different contour kits a cream one and a powder one, when it comes to contouring I always stick to powder products as cream ones look much more difficult and scare me a little. I got the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Palette in the shade light to medium, the palette comes with 6 refillable shades to shape and sculpt your face, you get 3 highlight shades and 3 contour shades.

The highlight shades are;
Vanilla - a soft peachy nude in a matte finish.
Banana - a yellow toned matte shade perfect for under your eyes.
Sand - a soft beige shade with subtle shimmer perfect for cheekbones and your brow bone.

The contour shades are;
Java - a cool toned brown contour shade.
Fawn - the most subtle of the contour shades with a cool undertone.
Havana - a warm toned brown contour shade.

All of the powders are finely milled, blend well and are highly pigmented, you can build each shade up for your desired look. I personally love fawn for an everyday contour because it's a bit more subtle than the other two shades. Banana is also the perfect shade for setting concealer and brightening up under your eyes. The palette is very versatile as many of the shades can be used for more than just contouring you can use them for eye shadows and bronzer too. The palette is a little pricey but after getting and using the palette I can justify the price tag, if your into make up then this is worth the splurge.

The Disney Book

Calling all Disney lovers! On the blog today I've got something your going to love, The Disney Book. My sister got me this for Christmas and it was one of my favourite gifts, being a huge Disney fan I was always going to love this. Now if your not a Disney fan your probably not going to give a damn about this book but I know there are many people out there who love Disney like me.
There is so much content in this book that I was a little overwhelmed from the Disney timeline and behind the scenes look to pages out the parks this book covers everything from where Disney started to where it is today. The hardback book starts with the Disney timeline that spans across 10 pages showing every Disney movie released (how many have you seen?!), many of the pages tell you all about your favourite movies with sketches and facts.
There's also pages packed with information of Disneyland/World including pictures of the original posters and merch. Not only do you get almost 200 pages of Disney but each book comes with an original film strip from Disney Pixars Brave. This book is the perfect gift for any Disney lover, you can buy the book here.
