Autumn/Winter Wishlisting!

So a while ago my beautiful blogger friend Char asked me to do a beauty wish list and her wish is my command. This is going to be quite possibly my shortest post ever! Purely because I want them  all because they're beautiful and sparkly, plus I tend to waffle.

With Christmas fast approaching, I have my beady little beauty obsessive eyes on these little treasures below. If I don't meet the man of my dreams before Christmas who wants to shower me with gifts, I might just have to wrap them to me from me!

WTH? GlamGlow Supermud

Welcome to my new blog series! WTH? Which stands for Worth The Hype? Ever wondered whether a product is actually as good as everyone says it is? Well this is the series for you!

This cheeky little pot has been popping up on my radar for over a year now. Every Tom, Dick and Harry have had their go of GlamGlow, so why hadn't I? 'Most' of the time, I like to hang back on new highly hyped products and wait for my faves to review it. I finally gave in after hearing Zoe rave about it, plus LookFantastic have it on sale for £34.99. I would've been a fool not to really! 

This mask comes with a big promise to 'tighten skin texture and pores whilst fighting common skin problems such as blemishes, breakouts and even ingrown hair'. Now I can't really comment on the ingrown hair part as I'm not really a hairy gal! But as far as the rest of it's glowing description goes, I actually agree. I see a noticeable difference EVERYTIME I use this product. The thing that it helps me with the most is my skin texture, I'm talking babies bum status! Smooth like butter. Also, it has dramatically reduced the size of my blemishes time and time again. I went through a stage about a month ago where I changed jobs, my sleeping pattern was messed up and this all showed up on my skin. I looked like a pizza face/moon crater face. So this used in conjunction with a few other standout products really got me out of my skin sadness. 

Now it is quite pricey, so I only apply it to my problem areas. As my cheeks are pretty clear, I save product by mainly applying it to my oily t-zone and my spot-prone chin. Damn you chin! You're the bane of my life! Once the mask has gone from a dark standard clay mask colour to a light grey, you start to see all of the nasties being drawn from your skin, which is probably my favourite part! You can actually see the magic working. Pretty disgusting though I know. 

Is it WTH?

Yes- All of the reasons above!

No- I don't have any negatives! Other than maybe the price, as the usual £49.99 price tag is a bit steep. So get it for £34.99 while you can girls and boys, I might even get a back up.

What's On My Face: Smashbox Cherry Smoke Palette

Hi all you gorgeous makeup lovers! Please accept my apologies for the sheer lack of posting on this here blog. Life sometimes takes over and the old blog has to take a back seat. That being said, today I bring you my first WOMF in a blooming long time!

I picked up the Smashbox Cherry Smoke palette (£32) last month and GOOD GOD it's dreamy! I popped along to Boots with the full intention of finally picking up the Full Exposure palette, but there was something about the Cherry Smoke that screamed out to me and within seconds it had jumped into my basket. It was love at first swatch! I was so impressed with the quality of the shadows, as I'd not really tried that much from the brand before. With a good mix of warm and cool toned matte and shimmer shades, it's a real versatile piece of beauty goodness. Admittedly there was a tiny bit of fall out, but nothing that couldn't be fixed with great ease. I can't believe that I haven't heard more about this palette, I am seriously impressed. Want to see how I slapped it all on my face? Yeah, I thought so!

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow

Yes, you guessed it. This will be yet another post where I gush about my love for Charlotte Tilbury. I picked up the Filmstar Bronze & Glow (£49) a few months ago and haven't looked back since. It took me a while to give into the hefty price tag, but after a little moment of weakness, it was mine. I had worried that it wouldn't be worth it, but believe me, it so is!

The glorious sculpting shade provides such a lovely contour, while managing to look natural on my pale skin. The slightly shimmery finish provides a subtle sun-kissed look, which would be perfect for every skin tone. The gold toned highlighter gives a gorgeous glow without one speck of glitter in sight. This thing would make anyone look like a golden goddess! It's the perfect finishing touch to any makeup look.

Once again, Charlotte shoots and she scores!!
