Collective June/July Haul - YSL, Urban Decay, Revlon, Bourjois + More

 Hullo Ladies, 

I've bought a few things in the last couple of months so I thought I would show you the products that will hopefully be coming up in future reviews :-) 

Feel Unique always have great offers on so I've made a few purchases in the last two months. 

With my first purchase I bought two lipsticks which are Urban Decay Revolution lipstick in Turn On and YSL Rouge Pur Couture in Tropical Pink. 

Then because I fell in love with the Urban Decay Lipsticks and because they had £10 off a £25 spend I bought two more! In the shades Anarchy and Shame :-) 

On the same day they arrived I popped into ASDA and picked up a few things.

I bought a Cosmopolitan magazine which came with a free New CID lip product, the Real Techniques Retractable Blush Brush, Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deep Conditioner and a lovely new pair of Pajamas! 

a few weeks ago while stopping in Boot's I noticed that Soap and Glory had a 3 for 2 offer going so I picked up the One Heck Of A Blot Face Powder, Kick Ass Concealer and Glow All Out Highlighter. 

On a food shop a few weeks ago I picked up the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation and the Loreal Lipstick in Julianne :-) 

I was super excited to try the Wake Me Up foundation because I finally found a shade light enought for me which is called Light Porcelain. 

Last month while window shopping on the Superdrug website I noticed a glitch with the Revlon products. It was advertised as a Buy 1 Get 1 Half Off deal but when you added them to your basket it turned into a Buy 1 Get One Free offer, not only that but they had already been on offer and where £5.99 each so I bought 4 of the Colourburst Balms for around £11!!! Bargain :-) 

I bought the shades Show Off and Elusive which are Matte Balms and Whimsical and Coquette which are Lacquer Balms!  

I picked up some things in Superdrug not long after that, Bourjois where having a 3 for 2 offer and you also got a free pair of sunglasses. I bought the Cream Blush in 02 and two more of the Rouge Edition Velvet's which I love! 

I also bought a lip liner and eyeliner from Rimmel and a Loud Mouth Liquid Lipstick from Barry M called Diva. 

Then a few days later I went back and took advantage of the deal again! Love me some Bourjois :-) 

I bought two more Rouge Edition lipsticks in Fuschia Grafiti and Rouge Buzz, the 123 Perfect CC Cream. I also picked up the Palmers Lip Balm which I love by the way!! 

Last but not least I bought one of the Sleek Pout Paints in Pinkini because I wanted to see how it compares to the OCC Lip Tars. I'm hoping to do a Comparison and review at some point :-) 

So that's what I've been buying these last few months!!
What have you been purchasing? Anyone else happen to be as in love with Bourjois as I am?!

REVIEW - Sleek - Blush By 3 Palettes :-)

Hullo Lovely Ladies!

As you may be able to tell from the image below, I have a slight obsession with the Sleek Blush By 3 palettes :-) 

With good reason though, each one I buy I grow more and more in love with the collection. 

Each blush is pigmented, smooth and long lasting. 

Pink Lemonade Palette

From Left to Right - Pink Ice, Macaroon and Icing Sugar

Includes two shimmer blushes and one matte cream blush. 

Pink Ice is a super shimmery light pink, Macaroon a gorgeous mid tone pink blends beautifully and Icing Sugar gives a beautiful rose gold glow.

Pink Sprint Palette

From Left To Right - Pink Parfait, Pink Ice and Pinktini

Includes three bright matte blushes.

Pink Parfait is an extremely pigmented dark pink, Pink Ice is just as pigmented but more of a Fuchsia pink and Pintini is a muted plumy pink the can look subtle on the cheeks ore built up. All three look scary in the pan but with a careful hand can look beautiful on any skin tone. 

Flame Palette

From Left To Right - Furnace, Bon Fire and Molton.

Includes two matte and one shimmer blush. 

Another scary looking palette but beautiful none the less, Furnace is my favourite as it's the easiest to wear, I don't have to worry about it being too bright as it gives a subtle "just in from the cold" look. Bon Fire is a stunning bright red that looks amazing when applied to the apples of the cheeks lightly with a stippling brush. It's my go to night out blush. Molton is a stunning red with a beautiful gold shimmer running through it.

Californ.I.A Palette

From Left To Right - OC, The Surf and Newport Peach 

Includes three cream blushes, two matte and one shimmer.

This is sleeks first all cream blush palette and it's also my newest edition to my collection but I've been using it constantly these last few weeks, it's a great palette for the summer. The colours are all very fresh and bright. 

Lace Palette

From Left to Right - Crochet, Guipure and Chantilly.

Includes two matte shades and one shimmer. 

Lace was the first blush by 3 palette I bought and I used it constantly for months, I also took it away on holiday with me for a week and it was perfect! Crochet and Chantilly are beautiful summer mattes that look gorgeous on the cheeks and Guipure is rose gold blush which is actually what the Sleek dupe of it is called. 

Sweet Cheeks Palette

From Left To Right - Cupcake, Dollymix and Candy Floss

Includes one matte cream blush and one matte and one shimmer powder blushes. 

A stunning palette for those who love pink! Cupcake is a matte cream blush that is so pretty and doll like on the cheeks, Dollymix is an unusual lavender pink which I absolutely adore and Candy Floss is a pretty bright pink.

Pumpkin Palette

From Left To Right - P Pie, Squash and Lantern.

Includes one shimmer and two matte blushes. 

This is one of my favourite palettes, it's such a fun mix of colours. P Pie is a gorgeous shimmery coral red, Squash is a bubblegum pink and Lantern is a bright matte orange. 

As you can tell, I highly recommend these palettes! 

Some of them do have dupes that are in the permanent line but mostly they are dupes for limited edition shades that you can't get anymore which I think is a great thing because I was gutted I never picked up a few of them! 

They cost around £9.99 each from places like Superdrug, Boot's and Amazon :-) 

Have you tried the Sleek blush palettes? Which are your favorites?

REVIEW - Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet - Pink Pong

Hullo Ladies!

I recently wrote a review for the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Hot Pepper which is a gorgeous yellow toned red. Now I'm going to talk about my favourite shade from the line!

It's a bright blue toned pink called Pink Pong! 

It's the most pigmented of all the colours which means its fully opaque in just one swipe. 

From Left to Right - Frambourjoise, Hot Pepper, Ole Flamingo and Pink Pong. 

Like all of these Liquid Lipsticks, Pink Pong is seriously long lasting and completely matte.  To me it's the perfect Summer Pink. 

Pink Pong is the colour on the far right and as you can see it's amazingly pigmented :-) 

I highly recommend these liquid lipsticks!

Have you tried them? Which ones are your favourites?

REVIEW - Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet - Hot Pepper

Hullo Ladies!

I've been in love with the new Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet's I have seven of them and love them all! 

The first one I bought was from Amazon and it's called Hot Pepper! It's a pigmented yellow toned red that's completely opaque in two swipes. 

. These liquid lipsticks are super comfortable and completely matte. 

They do have a tacky feeling for some time after they're first applied, almost like a lip gloss feel but it's not annoyingly sticky, you're hair doesn't stick to it or anything like that. 

As you can see it really does look like a lipstick so if you're afraid to get these because you think it might be a gloss then don't worry! I promise, every one of them comes out super pigmented and true to the colour in the package. 

One amazing thing about these is the lasting power, they last amazingly well! 

Perfect for nights out if you hate having to reapply a lipstick after eating or drink! This stuff doesn't move when it's completely dried down. When it does finally come off it leaves a lovely even stain on the lips that would basically look stunning on its own with just a bit of lip balm or gloss over the top :-) 

I highly recommend these liquid lipsticks!

Have you tried them? What's your favourite ever colour? Mine is Pink Pong!
