EBAY Bargain : Refillable Perfume Atomizer

Hullo Ladies! 

So most of us would have probably heard about the famous travalo that came out awhile ago, they sounded amazing to me as I'm always afraid to take my expensive perfume out with me for fear of them being broken or lost. The only catch was that they usually ran from about £9.99 to £11.99 which just seemed a bit to steep to me.

So a few weeks ago while looking on ebay I found this store that sells something similar but without the price tag. Instead I paid £1.49! 

It took a few weeks to get here but I was so excited when it finally did. It was well worth the wait to me :-) 

I decided that the perfume I would put in it was my Chanel Chance as it's one of my favorites but I hardly wear it because I don't like the idea of taking it out with me. 

Using it was was easy, all you have to do is take off the spray cap of whatever perfume you want to use, then place the Atomizer above the perfume bottle and push down so that the liquid is pumped into it.

 It has a window that shows how much is inside the bottle. 

Obviously this perfume atomizer may not be as well made as the Travalo version, which is fair enough and if you want to spend the money on the real thing then that's great. The way I see it though is that even if the atomizer breaks and leaks it's not going to make the mess it would make if it had been the perfume bottle that had leaked. Also it's not going to waste as much perfume either.

It's been in my bag since I received it a couple of days ago and nothings happened since so I'm guessing its quite sturdy. I've purchased a few more from the site which I'll link - Here

I highly recommend them, especially if your a perfume lover like me :-)

 I just keep it in my makeup bag as it's around the same size as an average lipstick tube!

 I've also had a few people comment on it and I've told them where to go to buy them. I think I'll get a few for some family members around Christmas time as it's quite a useful little thing. 

Have you tried these? 
Did you buy the real thing or did you go for the bargain like me?

Eau My Giddy God - Jimmy Choo - EDP

Hullo Ladies!

I recently finished off a few perfumes so these last few weeks I've been buying some new fragrances and this Jimmy Choo EDP was one of my first buys as it was already on my wishlist. 

I remember trying the EDT version of this back when it first came out and hating it but a few months ago I tried the EDP version and fell in love. I find it a lot sweeter and quite seductive. 

The Notes of this perfume are - Toffee, Patchouli, Pear, Orchid and Mandarin.  

I can smell the sweet toffee and patchouli which makes this reminiscent of other very famous perfumes like Flowerbomb and La Vie Est Belle but Its unique in it's own way so I think you could definitely own all three and not feel like you'd bought the same fragrance. 

I can certainly see why this is such a popular scent, it's got great lasting power and good silage which makes it great for nights out and I've gotten a few compliments in the times I've worn it out by both men and women. 

I adore the bottle, it looks amazing on my bedside table with all my other perfumes. 

I highly recommend this fragrance and suggest you check it out next time your in a store that stocks it :-) 

I bought this 60ml bottle from Amazon for about £28 which is a great bargain! 

Have you tried this perfume? what do you think of it?

REVIEW - Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks - Turn On, Anarchy + Shame

Hulla Ladies!

Exciting post for you today :-)

I'm reviewing a few of my new lipsticks which I bought from Feel Unique last month.

The Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks!!! Ta Dah :-)

With a slogan like "Creamy, Badass Luxery" I knew these lipsticks were worth a go but were they worth £15? That's what I was wondering when I first heard about them a few months back. So like everything I contemplate buying I did a quick Google search and came across lots and lots of lovely blog reviews screaming about these gorgeous lippy's

So after deciding that I would buy just one first, to see how I liked them, I searched for a shade that would be easy to wear on a day to day basis but fun all the same as I do like a bright lip. I chose Turn On which is I lovely rosy pink. I loved it on first application, it's creamy, pigmented and so pretty! It would look lovely worn on a daily basis with a nice subtle look or even paired with a smokey eye on a night out. 

From Left To Right - Turn On, Anarchy and Shame.

So a few weeks later I noticed Feel Unique had an awesome £10 a £25 spend coupon so I decided to pick up two more. 

I chose Anarchy which is a bright fuchsia pink and Shame which is a dark vampy plum/red.

Anarchy is one of the brightest pinks I've ever owned. It's gorgeous and looks stunning matched with a light foundation and winged liner. 

Shame is a very dark lipstick. I haven't had much opportunity to wear it. I feel sexy as hell when I do wear it though. I can't wait for the Autumn/Winter to get here so I can play around with it more. 

From Left To Right - Turn On, Anarchy and Shame.

All of the ones I've tried so far are great quality. They're pigmented, moisturizing and long lasting. 

The only one I could say I had a slight problem with was Shame, It did grab on to any dry areas on my lips so I suggest you use your favourite lip balm before applying. 

They all leave a lovely even stain with is nice if you hate re-applying as you can stick with the berry stained lips look or quickly apply a lip balm or gloss to revive it. 

The packaging is also stunning, it's so sleek and pretty. It looks expensive but is still subtle. It doesn't look gaudy and over done like some lipstick packages. 

I can't recommend these enough. I'm hoping to get a few more when I get that chance. I love the look of Bang and Catfight :-) 

Like I said earlier in the review these go for £15 each but I suggest you do what I do and go snooping for a Feel Unique code! 

Have you tried these lipsticks yet? What do you think of them?

Latest Additions to my Perfume Collection

Hullo Ladies!

I recently finished up a few of my perfumes so I decided to invest in some new fragrances in the last couple of weeks. 

I finished up my Oh Lola by Marc Jacobs, my Vera Wang Princess and a few of my Body Shop EDT's. I wouldn't say I go though perfumes exceptionally quick, my Auntie can go through a 100ml bottle of Tommy Girl in just a few short weeks. I'm not that bad but I do seem to find myself running out of a couple of my favorites every four or five months or so. 

Before I buy a perfume I always check on Amazon to see what is on there. I know a lot of people fear using amazon because of fakes but I always buy directly from Amazon themselves and not from an independent buyer. I've never received a bottle that way and thought it might be a fake, so I highly suggest it if you buy perfumes quite regularly like me because you can save a lot of money that way. 

The first perfume I bought is the Jimmy Choo EDP 

I've tried this perfume out numerous times in Boot's but I never seem to find it on offer there so I had a look on Amazon and the 60ml EDP was £27 which is a bargain :-) 

Like many popular fragrances out at the moment this is a sweet patchouli scent. It contains notes of Mandarin, Patchouli, Toffee, Pear and Orchid. 

In the same week I bought the Jimmy Choo perfume I noticed on the Boot's website that they had the Marc Jacobs Daisy Delight perfume on offer. As I'd just finished my Marc Jacobs perfume and I've always wanted Daisy I decided to go for it! 

It's still on offer on the Boot's website right now for £29.66.

This is a fresh, fruity floral perfume that contains notes of Quince, Apple, Sandlewood, Cedar and Freesia. 

The next scent I bought is Pleats Please by Issey Miyake

I recieved a sample of this months ago with a Feel Unique order and I new straight away that I had to own it next time I finished a few bottles. It's a gorgeous sophisticated light fragrance.

 Again I bought this on Amazon for £23.99 

This perfume is a fruity floral that contains notes of Sweet Pea, Pear, Gardenia, Patchouli, Musk and Vanilla. 

Another fragrance I bought from Amazon is Taylor Swift Enchanted Wonderstruck.

I love the original Wonderstruck and when I noticed the 50ml bottle on offer for £15 I decided to pick it up. It similar to Wonderstruck but sweeter.

It has notes of Vanilla, Wild Berries, Sugar, Passion Fruit and Woody Notes. 

The last perfume I bought was the one I wanted for the longest. 

Dolce & Gabbana The One 

This is a stunningly warm and comfortable scent that would be great for winter days and nights out. I bought the 50ml bottle on Amazon for about £32 

Some of the notes in the perfume are Vanilla, Peach, Litchi, Bergamot and Jasmine. 

It's both womanly and sophisticated and I love it :-)

So those are my new perfumes. I went overboard but perfume is one of those things that I love to splurge on and when I have a horrible day it's nice to go home and treat myself to something nice. 

All these perfume were bought by myself, I know this post probably sounds like an ad for Amazon or something but I promise it's not!

What perfume have you bought recently? Or have you been drooling after something special?

The Body Shop Sale Haul

Hi Ladies!

This one is really late as the sales been over for awhile now but as The Body Shop always have great deals on I thought It would still be an interesting Haul to show you :-) 

I love a good Body Shop Sale and the recent one didn't disappoint. 

What I did do though was wait a few weeks until right at the end of the sale so that they would bring out a coupon code to take an extra 40% off all products including the sale! 

The first few things I picked up was the Blueberry Limited Edition line. 

I got the shower gel for £1.80, the Body Scrub for £3 and the Lip Butter for £1.80. 

They all smell really good! 

I also picked up a few more things from the Tea Tree line which is my go to skin care line. 

I picked up the new Tea Tree BB Cream, the Squeaky Clean Scrub and the Skin Clearing Lotion.

I can tell you now that the BB Cream is going to be a re-purchase! It's amazing. I'm hoping to do a review soon. 

These products were not in the sale but I got them for 40% off with the coupon code! 

The last thing I bought in the sale was this Lip Butter LolliPop. 

With the Extra 40% off I only payed £6 for it!! 

I've wanted to try all these for ages! 

When I first started buying from The Body Shop one of my first purchases was the Sweet Lemon Lip Butter and I loved it because it smelt like lemon cheesecake. 

They've discontinued the line now but I've been wanting to try the other scents as I've heard lots of great things about them. So far I've only tried the Shea and Mango but I already adore them! 

So those are my recent Body Shop purchases :-)

Have you bought anything from them recently? The next thing I want to pick up is the Honey Bronzer! Apparently the lightest one is amazing for pale ladies like me :-)

My Birthday Wishlist

Hullo Ladies!

It's my 22nd Birthday Next Month! 

Like last year I've created a wishlist :-)

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle EDP -  I got a Chanel Perfume from my brother last year for my 21st and now I've got a taste for them. I love Coco Mademoiselle but it's so expensive so I'm hoping to get it for my birthday.  

Stila In The Light Palette -  I keep seeing this palette everywhere this month! It's haunting me! I've read so many great reviews for it so I'm excited to try it out. 

Converse All Star Hi Tops in Red - I've wanted a red pair of converse for years!

Nails Inc Gel Nail Polish - I love Nails Inc Nail Polish and I really want to try out their new Gel Formula. 

Vera Wang Princess Night Perfume - I finished a bottle of this last year and I've really missed it. I'm nearly all out of the original Princess too! I love both so I can't wait to get a new bottle. 

Makeup Revolution Blush and Contour Kit - I've seen so many beautiful pictures of this brand on instagram lately! This palette looks stunning and for £6 you can't go wrong! 

Makeup Revolution Blushing Hearts Blusher - This is another product I've been drooling over on instagram! It's a dupe of the too faced blushes for just £5 and they look stunning! 

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation - This is another product I have heard so much about but never tried. It's expensive so I'll either buy this or my favourite Double Wear Foundation. It's all according how brave I feel. 

MAC Eyeshadow Kit in Warm - Yeah, It's more expensive than most palettes out there but it's still a bargain! Sadly, I highly doubt I'll be getting it. If I don't though, I'll probably buy a new lipstick! Got to love MAC lipsticks! 

So there you go! 

That's my wishlist :-) HEY......A girl can dream!
