Sigma Brushes

Evening All :)

Yay it's the weekend!

Just wanted to do a quick post as I'm rather excited! I've just ordered my very first Sigma brush set. The expensive shipping from America has always put me off trying these brushes but today they are offering free Worldwide shipping. (Until 11.59 PM Central USA time).

The set I went for is the Synthetic Kabuki Kit for $56.00 which Google tells me is £36.00. I think this is an amazing price since I've heard the quality is great.

I can't wait to try these brushes out as I've especially wanted the F80 for a while after watching Vivianna Does Makeup's videos! (Next I may need the Jemma Kidd Light As Air Foundation!)

If you're wanting some brushes be aware the site may be running a little slow. It went down earlier today as it couldn't cope with the increased traffic but it seemed ok when I finally placed my order.

Have a great weekend,

QVC Elemis TSV

Good Morning :)

I just wanted to tell any Elemis fans out there about this great deal on QVC for today only.

Elemis 5 Piece Tranquil Indulgence Face & Body Collection

This set is £39.96 plus P&P and it's amazing value. I just worked out that buying each product separately would cost around £150! At that point my Fiance kindly got his debit card out for me and purchased this for me for Christmas! Yay! The set contains (copied from the QVC website):

  • 1 x Pro-Collagen Marine Cream (30ml) - award-winning moisturiser helps to actively reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles whilst hydrating your skin

  • 1 x Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser (150ml) - formulated to deeply cleanse your skin, gently dissolving make-up and daily grime to a radiant, youthful-looking complexion

  • 1 x Pro-Radiance Hand and Nail Cream (100ml) - luxuriously rich hand cream quickly absorbs to instantly hydrate hands and condition your nails. Only available at QVC

  • 1 x Frangipani Monoi Body Oil (100ml) - super-hydrating oil designed to leave your skin feeling silky soft and beautifully fragranced. It can be used as a massage oil and a hair treatment

  • 1 x Tranquil Touch Bath Elixir (300ml) - enriched with cocoa butter, patchouli, cedarwood and vetivert to leave your skin felling soft and delicately scented

  • 1 x navy patent wash bag - 26.5cm x 17.5cm x 8cm (10.3" x 6.8" x 3.1")

I feel like I work for QVC saying all this (I really don't!) but you're looking at full sizes here apart from the Marine Cream which is a very very generous size worth over £40 anyway!

It's worth saying that you can also get this on Easy Pay which means you can spread the cost over 4 months if you can't afford the full amount now :)

So excited to use this set!

Hope you have a great Sunday.

A Few Purchases

Good Evening fellow beauty lovers!

I thought I'd do a little post showing you a few things I've bought lately. I feel like I haven't had much to blog about recently as I have been spending most of my money on Christmas pressies rather than beauty products! I will have some posts to write at Christmas as the majority of my presents are makeup/skincare :) Can't wait to try my new things out.

First up from my recent purchases is this Bourjois eyeshadow:

It caught my eye when I walked past one of the special offer stands in Boots. I'd never seen these "Intense" eyeshadows before but they seem great. I don't think there are loads of colours but I really love this one (03 Extrait De Fard). It's a light glittery peach colour. When you take a swipe of the product the colour and pigmentation is so true to how it looks in the pan which I totally wasn't expecting. It's such a gorgeous colour and I think it's perfect for this party season coming up as you need a bit of glitter for Christmas! I haven't tried it on my eyes yet so I can't comment about fallout, etc but I've got a feeling I'll love it.

Here is a swatch on the hand to try and show how pigmented (and perfect!) it is. Although this photo really doesn't do it justice. Please do try it for yourselves next time you're in Boots/Superdrug :)

Next up we have the Vaseline Limited Edition Lip Therapy tin in Creme Brulee

I was really looking forward to trying this after seeing it appear on quite a few blogs. I have to say I'm quite disappointed with this. For the price I was expecting it to be a bit more... special I guess. I thought the scent would be a lot sweeter as well but I find it quite perfume-y if that makes sense. I don't really think I'll be using this much!

Last but certainly not least, I had to get myself some Lush Christmas goodies.

Clockwise From Left = Magic Wand Bubble Bar, Candy Mountain Bubble Bar & Cinders Bath Bomb

Magic Wand Bubble Bar - This smells gorgeous, just like the Snow Fairy shower gel which I love! I haven't used any of these Lush products yet so I'm not sure how much use you get of them but I was told this one will last for 10-15 baths as you wave the wand around in the bubbles until you're happy with the result then let it dry so you can use it again. I think it looks sweet as well with the little bell - would be quite a fun product to use with kids.

Candy Mountain Bubble Bar - Ah this smells divine. Again another very sweet scent so I'm really looking forward to using this. It reminds me of the Creamy Candy bubble bars so anyone who likes that should have a sniff of this next time you're near a Lush store.

Cinders - I thought I'd go for something a bit different with this one. This one is more of a warm, spicy Christmas type scent. I think that's due to the Cinnamon Leaf Oil. It's also got popping candy in it so looking forward to seeing what that's like in the bath. I love popping candy!

Well hopefully I'll find some more stuff to blog about soon. Can't believe it's only 5 weeks til Christmas now! Loving it :)

ASOS 20% Off

Hi Everyone,

Just thought I'd do a quick post about this ASOS Party Pieces sale.

There seems to be over 300 beauty related items in there so it's worth a look. It includes quite a few NARS products which is what I was most interested in. I've ordered a lipstick as I've never tried them before and my mam always gets me to choose my own Christmas presents so look out for a post on that after Christmas!

Hope you find something good,
