Models Own Sale

Yes you heard right, Models Own will be hosting a sale on their website as soon as they get 100,000 likes on their facebook page. I remember this time last year they held a sale for reaching 50,000 likes and it was awesome! I spent about £80 and bought loads of stuff for my sisters birthday (and plenty for me of course) This is what helped me build my Models Own nail polish collection, and I have lots of new polishes added to my wishlist!

Along the way, Models Own will constantly be holding giveaways, usually for liking statuses or answering questions and so on, I wonder whether they will be holding nail art competitions at all? I'd love to see that anyway! I think last year one of the giveaways was every single nail polish of theirs! 

So, everybody must spread the word! Blog, tweet, post a status, whatever your favourite social interaction is these days, get everyone over to their facebook page and start liking it! Giveaways start at 80,000 likes, and they're almost there! They need to reach 100,000 likes by 30 September, so we have just under a month! Just think, quality nail polishes for £2.50.........

Just a heads up, the minimum spend before discount is £25 but I'm sure everyone will have no problem reaching that! Also, the new mirrorball polishes will be excluded from the sale. And finally, P&P isn't included in the discount.

What's your favourite Models Own products/shades? I think I'll post about mine in the run up to the sale, get me more excited haha :)

Could you please answer my blog poll? :)

As I would like to try and do more on my blog and make more of an effort, I've added a poll to my sidebar to get some suggestions. Wondering what people like seeing on blogs? If you have any ideas, leave a comment or e-mail me :) I really want to make some more collages of trends and looks, but I don't have photoshop anymore! So it's not that easy unfortunately, but I will find a way!

I know I would like to maybe do a video of my dressing table/storage as I looove looking at other peoples, but I know some people hate this sort of thing? I know I've put a lot of time into getting it how I want it and I think this is how most people feel about theirs! We all know how stressful it is if you don't have the room or the storage capacity for your collection, and it's taken me ages but I'm almost happy with it haha.

I hope you are all well, at the moment I'm living off the last of my wages, but I'm dying to get my hands on some of MAC's By request collection, ahh MAC why do this to me?!

Oh and check out my blog sale,  I'm very poor and need funds haha! I'm going to TRY and detach myself from some of the hundreds of nail polishes I own and update it with them too!

Thank you lovelies :)

MAC Heavenly Creature now available online

I thought I'd let everyone know that MAC's Heavenly Creature collection is now available on their website, and also on Selfridges website. That means the limited edition sell-out lipstick in 'Cut-A-Caper' is now available again! It came out with the Christmas Tartan Tale collection in 2010. For those that don't know, it's basically a lighter creamier version of Ever Hip. (Official description: Mid-tone peachy pink) So be quick, it'll sell out soon! 

I have my eye on Supernova blush, and Light Year mineralize skinfinish aswell, even if just for the name resembling Buzz Lightyear haha.

Have you seen anything you fancy in this collection? There's lots of colourful eyeshadows aswell! Check out Temptalia for all her swatches.

The Body Shop Bath and Shower Gels

I was browsing the Body Shop sale online the other day and came across these little beauties for £2. They're part of the 'originals' that TBS bought back from the 90's, so lots of you might remember them. I just couldn't resist the sound of the fragrances, they sounded good enough to eat! From left to right we have Raspberry Ripple, Fuzzy Peach, Green Apple and Dewberry. 

This is what is on the TBS website:

A beauty classic returns. This soap-free bath and shower gel leaves skin clean and fragranced..

+ Soap-free
+ Lather-rich
+ Fruit scented
+ Bottle made from 100% recycled plastic

Aqua (Solvent/Diluent), Sodium Laureth Sulfate (Surfactant), Cocamidopropyl Betaine (Surfactant), Sodium Chloride (Viscosity Modifier), Glycerin (Humectant), Polysorbate 20 (Emulsifier), Parfum (Fragrance), Phenoxyethanol (Preservative), PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate (Emulsifier), Sodium Benzoate (Preservative), Citric Acid (pH Adjuster), Benzophenone-4 (Sunscreen agent, Ultraviolet Light Absorber), Disodium EDTA (Chelating Agent), Rubus Idaeus Fruit Extract (Natural Additive), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Skin Conditioning Agent), CI 17200 (Colour), CI 14700 (Colour), CI 42090 (Colour). 
(Ingredients differ for each scent)

The Raspberry Ripple bottle states on the label that it's suitable for all skin types, yet the others do not. But nowhere does the website say anything about skin types for any of these. I've already tried Fuzzy Peach in the bath, and can safely say it did not irritate my skin in any way. It created plenty of bubbles, and my bathroom smelled of it, but I didn't use it to wash myself, so I don't know how it performs as a shower gel as of yet. My favourite smell is Raspberry Ripple, it smells AMAZING! I'm actually a bit disappointed about the other three's smell. They're a bit chemically, and not at all sweet. They may smell better when used in the shower or bath but at the moment I can't say.

I actually found a 20% off code which included sale, making these babies £1.60 for 250ml, and when you spend £5 you get one free, meaning I have 1 litre of shower gel for £4.80, can I say b a r g a i n? I also bought a few other things which I will post about.

These seem to have sold out online (I think?) But you might still be able to get them in store. And I wonder if they're being discontinued now they're in the sale? Who knows! I will say that The Body Shop is a brand who I fall in and out of love with, but with the amount of deal and discounts they have going on everywhere right now is a good reason to love them again! Check the website out for some, including a 40% code off! How generous?!

Illamasqua blusher in Hussy

I've had this for a little while now, and I can safely say Illamasqua's blushes have fast become one of my favourite formulations and I've accumulated quite a few over the past few weeks! Having discount codes doesn't help this.. From the Illamasqua blushes I own, I find them to be very pigmented, wiping one finger across and it picks up so much colour it's unbelievable. I love the packaging aswell, shiny black plastic in a unique shape. Large piece of clear plastic on top so you can easily see which colour it is. It's quite big, but fits perfectly in your hand. It seems like you get lots of product due to the size, but it is 4.5g, which is 1.5g less than MAC, but almost the same price. This is £16.50, and MAC's blushers are currently £17.50. But if you want to switch it up, and love bright colours in your make-up bag, you should give Illamasqua a go.

On Illamasqua's website, they describe Hussy as a matte bright candy pink, which is a pretty accurate description! I haven't really used it as much as I should of been doing, but it does give me a china doll rosy glow, especially with highlighter thrown into the mix. Hussy is probably one of Illamasqua's more popular powder blushes, and I can see why. It's a bright pink which will suit all skin tones, and is a great way to inject some brightness into your beauty routine. If you're afraid of bright lips, give this a go, you can apply lightly for a fresh glow, or really build up for some woooow. A perfect summer colour, bright and pink, need I say any more?

I'm going to get around to posting more of Illamasqua's blushes as I'm so impressed with their formulas and I think they're really worth the money.
