once more, with feeling ♥






I’m currently eating my second bowl of Coco Pops – even though it’s 11am… I’m slightly struggling with eating healthy this week. As soon as I get home from Red magazine I eat everything in the fridge. Woops… Tomorrow will be my final week at Red :( It is unreal how much I don’t want to leave, I’ve learnt so much and I love that I’ve worked in features, beauty and the sub editors section. I found the beauty section really interesting and it’s definitely something I want to work with in the future. I’ve had to file products, deal with PR releases on new cosmetics and sort out all sorts of designer products. The sample room is filled with Dior, Chanel and YSL – seeing that much make-up kept a permanent smile on my face for the rest of the day. Another reason why I’ve had a big grin on my face is because my Zara dress finally came! I picked it up a few days ago and it’s beautiful – as soon the English weather shows us some sun, I’ll do an outfit post on it. This weekend I’ve had a fairly lazy few days and caught up on Criminal Minds, food and my bed. I had Mexican with the girls at the start of the week and I also went to the cinema and saw The Dictator – I loved it! I couldn’t stop laughing and I also smuggled in prawns and cocktail sauce. Yes, this sounds like the strangest thing to do but I’ve been having sea food cravings! I can’t help it! Hahaa ;)

Anyway, for today’s post I wanted to do an update of all the new make-up goodies I have. I have got a lot of new stuff so I think three or four posts will be enough to cover everything. I’ve started with the eye shadows for this post and WOW are they amazing or what?! I can definitely say that using designer products has really changed my outlook on make-up, I know I’ve had to always use high street products because of being a student but now that I’ve been using Lancome and MAC, I will definitely be sticking with it. The difference between high street and designer is unreal and it’s not just the packaging, it’s the texture of the products and the quality of it. Foundation is the main thing that has made an impact in my whole beauty routine. I can’t stress enough how amazing Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H is. It’s creamy, dewy and lasts no matter what the weather is like.
Right now back to the eyeshadows, I’m going to focus on Chanel - the Illusion D’ombre eyeshadow to be precise. This little pot of heaven really is amazing; I can’t wait to wear it out on a night out. The best way to describe the formula is probably like using dream matte mousse. It’s thick but very soft and is perfect for creating the ultimate shimmery black smokey eye. The shade I have is called 85 Mirifique – a glittery carbon black. As you can see from the sample on my hand, it looks beautiful when light is reflected onto it but it doesn’t look cakey or too harsh. Out of all of the eyeshadows I have, this one is definitely my favourite. I don’t usually like using cream based shadows because they tend to crease but this Chanel wonder is faultless and is definitely essential for a night out. Have any of you used the Chanel Illusion D’ombre eyeshadow collection before? Let me know what you think! The next post will be a detailed look on the other eyeshadows and lipsticks – I’ve got a lot to get through! Hope you’re having a good weekend girls, tell me if you’ve bought any new make-up and if you’ve ever smuggled prawns into a cinema…
