Hi Beauty Lover!,
I recently saw MUA Undress Your Skin – Shimmer Highlighter mentioned on Taupe and Pearl’s post (link here to see the post).
As I have been on the lookout for a highlighter to add to my collection, I thought this would be a great one to try. This is an amazing value product as it’s only £3.00, and with its embossed pan, looks seriously more high-end! How could I refuse it….!
As you can see from the swatch it has a lovely glossy pink shimmer, with no large glitter particles to make it sparkly and a little definitely goes a long way.
This is perfect to highlight the tops of my cheeks, my cupids bow and down the centre of my nose to make me look awake and healthy without being overly frosty.
As it’s not so finely milled there is very little fallout, which is great as you don’t want it going everywhere!
I know Kirsty had a problem with the lid of her highlighter, but so far mine is holding up ok. The only slight con to this would be that this could highlight any large pores if you were to apply too much or having a bad skin day.
This was purchased at Superdrugs £3.00 7.5g, but can be also be purchase online at MUA.
Do you have this highlighter? What are your views on it?
Debenhams are offering an online exclusive of a free skincare goody bag with purchases of 2 or more on either makeup or skincare worth £59.00 link here.
So, if you have anything on your wishlist or dare I say it for Christmas, now is a good time to get it as you can get yourself a treat too :)
Also, they are offering 750 points if you spend over £50.00 on beauty or fragrance.
Hi Beauty Lover!,
I was perusing the shelves in Superdrugs as you do…, as I was on the look out for a new lippy, when I saw the Bourjois Colour Boost Glossy Lip Crayon, they come in 4 colours Peach on the Beach, Orange Punch, Red Sunrise and Fuschia Libre.
I couldn’t decide which colour to go for, so as Superdrugs are doing a special offer of buy 1 get the 2nd half price, well I decided to get all 4 shades!
Peach on a Beach
Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon
Top – Bottom – Peach on a Beach, Orange Punch, Red Sunrise, Fuschia Libre
They are glossy, non-sticky, hydrating, super pigmented and with an SPF of 15 it will protect your lips and keep them looking lovely. They also have no taste/smell, which can be very strong on some lipsticks!
They do claim that they last 10 hours, which I found on my lips was not the case, they lasted for a maximum of 3/4 as they leave a slight tint on the lips, but easy to reapply.
My favourite in this range is Orange Punch, it’s not as scary orange once on your lips, but I highly recommend all of them.
These are priced at £7.99
Do you use these lip crayons? What’s your favourite colour?
When I first started getting into makeup and eye shadows, the thing that daunted me the most was pairing eye shadows, as I found it difficult to know which worked well with other colours, so to play it safe, I just stuck to the same one colour for years, which was MAC Sable.
Then once I started getting into watching YouTube and seeing all these amazing makeup artists and beauty bloggers, and they were using lovely colours that I could only dream of wearing, and that is when I found Zabrena at myeyeshadowconsultant.com, and I haven’t looked back since.
Zabrena who runs the site has an incredible knowledge of what colours blend beautifully together and has pictures showing how they look, so it was totally fool-proof for me.
On myeyeshadowconsultant.com you can also choose to become a member for either a monthly fee of $4.95 or yearly $19.95/Year (PayPal) or $29.95/Year (Credit Card), bargain for the yearly amount via PayPal that’s about one MAC eyeshadow (but be warned, it does get addictive purchasing colours to suit the looks Zabrena has put together :) ).
With that bargainous membership you get access to over 1000+ pictures of different looks that Zabrena has put together using products from MAC, Urban Decay, LORAC, Stila, The Balm and more. There is also a great members only forum with people from around the world, me included ;).
This website has really opened up the use of colour and knowing what suits me and what definitely doesn’t!

Hi and welcome,
I have always had a bit of thing about makeup and beauty, but never knew where to start, so did the same things day in, day out! Using the same products and one colour eyeshadow and mascara.
That is until I recently found YouTube! and did searches for makeup, especially for hooded eyes as that is what mine are – I know I am late to the party – but as they say better late than never!
Thanks for looking at my blog.
