Primark- PS Matte Long Last Lipstick (Atomic) Review

So I recently lost my lipstick bag😯😯 and some fabulous lipstick shades. I was so gutted but I have been having a blast rebuilding my collection💄💄💄.

I went back to Primark for a mini haul .

This product is marketed as a matte lipstick.  I found that it’s not as drying or matte as the likes of MAC or Lime Crime. In a way I liked this.  Non of that chapped lips look .

This pink shade is called Atomic. It reminds me soo much of the Utopia by LimeCrime.  But at a fraction of the price…. winning.
I did a little comparison just for you.

The Lime Crime is a few shades deeper but they are equally fabulous shades of pink.

This lipstick is a bargain at just £1.50

Get yours now ! These lipsticks sell out fast at Primark.

L.A. Girl Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss -Review 

Yes.. we are talking lipsticks again. As I  have previously said Lipsticks are the perfect finishing touch. 

The great face changer!

I came across L.A. Girl Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss on my quest for cheaper alternatives. Omg ,I am totally sold out.  This lipstick applies as a liquid and dries matte. For the price it has great pigmentation.

A must have for my fellow lipstick junkies.
The price was sooo good I bought 3.
Dreamy, Rebel and Backstage.

BACKSTAGE

I am totally in love with Backstage. (It makes my teeth look extra white 😆)

FINALLY – This lipstick is SUPER long lasting . I even struggle to take it off at the end of the day.
Let me know if you are an LA girl lipstick lover. 💋

Check on it – Winter Coat for the Tall

Hey Guys,

Although the October weather has been pretty mild here in the UK, I know that the blistering COLD is on its way.  I have taken it upon myself to start my winter Coat hunt now!

Ladies you know how difficult it is to find a good tall coat, one that is not sold out.  I did some of the leg work and will be sharing some of my fav finds here over the next few weeks.

I start with this Charcoal Plaid Boy Friend fit Coat from Dorothy Perkins.

I will be the first to say that this Coat does not look very appealing on the site. Unfortunately since we do not much choice but to shop online, I had to take a chance.  Ladies do not be afraid to take a chance!

This boyfriend fit coat is fierce.  Totally different to anything in my wardrobe.  A great variety if your looking for something to spice up your wardrobe.

I particularly love that I can turn up the sleeves and for the first time it is not because the sleeves are too short.

Lips… bittersweet

I work so hard for my ££ so I have to be doubly  sure before spending it.

This Bittersweet pro longwear lip pencil from M.A.C was a bittersweet purchase @ £15.00 but it is soooo worth it.

image

I used this lip pencil all over the lips to achieve this matte lip colour. I only learnt to do this recently ( thanks Saima for the head up😉) and it is fantastic. I love the standard matte lipsticks but I find they get very dryy and crackly.
Don’t you just love that rusty brown shade 💋

I have to give it to M.A.C this prolong lip pencil glide on so smoothly. It’s almost like a second skin. At time of writing this lips pencil has been on for 6 hrs.

A Tall and plus thumbs up from me.

Time machine … where art thou?

Take me back plssss…
This time last week I was getting ready to embrace the new me… the older and somewhat more mature me. (Ha).
I planned a quiet night so at approximately 10.37pm on the  Tuesday  22nd September I made a reservation at Steam and Rye.

I have to give it to them, they confirmed the reservation first thing in the morning.  So for my fellow last minute.comers this could be ideal for u.
GREAT venue although parking was a nightmare.  Nothing  gets past me… I managed to get FREE parking some 2 streets down Leadenhall Road

image

A very vintage feel to the deco upstairs with dated boxes and brief cases.

image

No I have not applied any filters…this is the setting and feel of the sitting area. Pretty cosy if that’s the feel your going for but damn difficult to read the menu.

image

All in all the food was not great but there was a great ambience about this venue.
They make a pretty good strawberry daiquiri so that makes up for everything.

Cheers to a lovely evening.
