LIME CRIME Chinchilla

Too Faced Lip Insurance

Today I finally tried out my new lipstick from Lime Crime and I really love it. First of all it smells absolutely divine and the colour is so interesting. A very muted grey/lavender colour that I never thought I would dare to wear. I've heard that these opaque lipsticks can be quite drying so I applied it over my Too Faced Lip Insurance and it went on very nicely.
I personally think Chinchilla is a beautiful shade and a very long wearing lipstick. I would highly recommend this lipstick to anyone wanting to try this and I can't wait to get my hands on more Lime Crime products.
You can purchase if from the official Lime Crime website here:

Since I live in the UK I bought mine from Love Makeup:

What do you think of this shade and other Lime Crime products?

Lime Crime opaque lipstick in the shade 'Chinchilla'

I was lusting after one of the new Lime Crime velveteens 'Salem' from their new Clueless Witch collection and stupidly ordered it from their official site before checking if it was available on a UK stockist website. I ended up spending $30 on Salem so I hope it will live up to my expectation.
A few minutes after ordering I saw on Facebook that it was available on and  so I bitterly went to check prices and ended up ordering a load of other things I had been lusting after such as this gorgeous Sugarpill 'Cold Chemisty' palette. I was also wanting to try their new super cute brushes so I picked one of those up. After that I decided I might as well spend over £50 (which is a crazy amount for me to spend on makeup in one go) and get the free shipping. I also purchased a Lime Crime lipstick in 'Chinchilla' though I doubt I will be able to pull it off as it is a grey/mauve shade but it just looks so pretty I couldn't help myself. Finally I have been hearing lots of good things abut NYX jumbo pencils and since I don't own anything from NYX I decided to give them a try and went for the shade 'Slate' as I thought it would go nicely with my new Sugarpill palette.

Good or Wicked?

Urban Decay Glinda palette & Loreal Feria in Wicked Black.
I have been suffering really badly with my eczema for just over a year now and I recently went to see an allergy specialist who gave me some very disappointing news that the cause of all my problems is likely to be black hair dye and cosmetics. As you can imagine I was heartbroken but I will find out for definite after I have been for more tests. I  hope I can find an alternative way to colour my hair. As for makeup, I love it so much I just don't want to have to stop wearing it.
I found this Glinda palette on eBay for only £20. It was released a year ago and I really liked the pretty pastel magical colours. I love the contrast of jet black hair and pretty soft colours on the eyes.

Pretty Pastels

Lately I have been rediscovering my love for pastel colours, I have always had a thing for baby pink and I have my room painted baby pink at my parents house. I had been eying up this cute bobble hat on the KILLSTAR website and my lovely boyfriend bought me it from Pulp in Leeds the other day. It says CREEP on one side and FREAK on the other so you can wear it either way.  I also used my 20% Illamasqua Valentines discount on this pretty lilac eyeshadow which is also named Creep!

You can find everything pictured in the following links:


Yesterday I found out that I was offered a place to study music production at Leeds College of Music! My boyfriend was also accepted so we are both very VERY excited!!!! I have worked very hard the past 2 years to get a place there and it was all worth it. I can't wait to start in September and live in Leeds full time.

Thanks SoundCloud!

SoundCloud celebrated their 5th birthday at the end of last year and to celebrate they ran a competition to win a SoundCloud pro account. I entered as many times as possible as I was really wanting a Pro account sooner or later as my music library is growing and I need to expand.
I was super excited to find out that I had won. My pro account is so useful it gives me a more insightful overview of who is listening to my music and where my listeners are located over the globe.
I received my T-shirt bundle in the post the other day and I love how personal the package was down to the musically decorated tape used on the box. I love SoundCloud as a company, they really care about their users and I have discovered so much music on their site. Please visit my SoundCloud page.

Liv + Boost

 So as you may have noticed I have been going a little crazy for Illamasqua at the moment, I just can't get enough so when I spied this ASOS exclusive Lip duo in their sale for only £11 I had no choice.
Included in this set is Lipstick in Liv which is a pastel candy pink shade and Intense Lipgloss in Boost which is a pale pink with a very strong blue undertone which transforms and lip colour you apply it over.

Liv lipstick with Boost Lipgloss over the top.
I really love this shade, though it does enhance my coke-stained teeth I will just have to keep my lips closed when I wear it.
As I am writing this it is Valentines day which means I received a 20% off code and yes I have made another Illamasqua order.

Sleek Makeup: Garden of Eden palette & Contour Kit.

Garden of Eden is the latest in Sleek Makeup's i-Divine palette range. I currently own one other i-Divine palette in Au Naturel and I loved it so much I wanted to try out another. When I saw this latest Garden of Eden palette I fell in love with the colours, a range of greens and dark pinky hues unlike anything I already own so I couldn't resist giving it a try.

I was lucky enough to receive the limited edition Python packaging, which I will be cutting up and using as a bookmark which is what I do with perfume packaging that I like and don't want to throw away.
I ordered mine from Superdrug's website because I wanted to get some points on my Beauty card and I know a few people who ordered directly from Sleek's website have been disappointed to miss out on the limited packaging.

I think all the shades are stunning and I love the names but I do have a slight problem with the names Flora and Fauna, I think they should be swapped. (I tend to get annoyed at petty things)

So while I was purchasing the palette I thought I'd also pick up the Sleek Contour kit as I have heard lots of good things about it and my chubby winter face is in desperate need to some chiselling.

I highly recommend Sleek Makeup if you want good quality and low prices, the i-Divine palettes are ridiculously cheap at £7.99 each! Such a beautiful range of highly pigmented colours you can't really go wrong.
