You may have seen me feature this product in one of my many Body Shop Hauls (Mini here) and after a few weeks of testing I finally feel that it's the perfect time for me to review the Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter. I've used this on its own, with a flannel and by using a facial wipe prior to use so let's see the verdict...

I've been reaching for MAC Style blush a lot more recently, It's been giving me a much needed glow with the current weather change. I've not seen many rave about MAC Style in and around the beauty blogosphere, perhaps it may be the negative notion of MAC's Frost Finish blush line which doesn't have the best series of supporters but may I stress that Style is a diamond in the rough.

Hey everyone this is my first post in September - can you believe we're nearly at the end of the year already? Basically, I've been short of posts because I've just started my first term at college and well let's just say I've recently overcame my gruelling long time table and I've finally got the energy to do some fun lovin' postin' (Very keen, indeed).
Considering the fact we've shifted into a new season which is Autumn, the makeup elements we associate with Summer such as dewy foundations, bronze hues and neon lippies are far from gone when chasing the new windy seasons trends but that doesn't mean you have to be overly matte and dull, introducing cult favourite Benefit's High Beam Highlighter.

Today I received an email from The Body Shop notifying me that all Love Your Body members will exclusively receive 40% off all items for today only! I obviously went straight to the Body Shop store and picked up a few items.
For anyone that suffers from an oily T Zone/complexion and consistently develops a shiny forehead, cheeks, nose and/or chin throughout the day with the hatred of powdering, let me begin by saying I may just have the product tailored to you for an inexpensive price.
Hey beauties! I've felt as if I've neglected my blog by not posting as much as I should have recently, due to the fact I have been busily job hunting and boyyy has it been an effort.
After having a quick glance at Benefit's website I discovered that their Full/Silky Finish lipstick lines were on sale for half price! After a quick order on Sunday, today I finally received my delivery which I am excited to share with you all...

Here I have what I consider to be a dupe for Benefit's Brow Zings eyebrow kit that retails for £23.50, however for all of my lovely eyebrow concious gals out there I have found an exact dupe in the form of Sleek at just £8.50! I'm no mathematician but I believe that's a whopping saving of £15, not bad huh? I'll give you a heads up that the before and after results are amazing!
Perfect for anyone with sparse or maybe non existent brows, even for those of you who just need that extra definition.

Here I have more or less the full range of Benefit's B.Right Skincare (minus a mist and spot zapper), I received these products in a miniature 6 piece set for Christmas however this set is still available for purchase at Feel Unique for £12.50. Despite their size, these smaller versions actually last ages, you only need to use the smallest amount possible (great if you buy the full sized versions as they are quite pricey)
So let's get down to the products...
We are verging towards the end of Summer now with a few weeks to go until September, so it's time for us to make the most of our bright nail and lip combos and stand out like there's no tomorrow! I was rummaging through some of my empty Christmas gift-sized perfume boxes (Which make excellent storage for nail polishes! note to self make a post) looking for some gorgeous varnishes when I stumbled across these two OPI beauties...

So, whether your in a last minute rush to go out or have just staggered in from a long day at work (or prehaps night out, ey) and need a quick body/facial wash and clean fix then this post is exactly what you need!
I see a lot of bath product regimes, but never really see any involving the good ol' shower! For those of us that are busy and need a quick, fresh body fix with no time to spare (Usually me!) then a shower is the best option. Especially if you're in a super rush, with no time to wash your hair - unless you've done it the night before or you're just super lazy... well! I shall introduce you to my best friend, The Shower Cap.
Let's go step by step for perfect skin...

I was crazy about Lush's Vanishing Cream last year, to say it all started with me asking for a small pot sample in store this spurred me on to buying the full size pots! For a 45g pot (as featured) this will cost you £17.50 at Lush. I know it seems expensive for the amount you get but you literally only have to use the smallest amount each time. I myself have oily skin with blemishes, I would consider that if you have skin like me or even if you have oily/combination skin you check this out. Drier skins might like Skin Drink instead.
So what's so good about is moisturiser? Well...
I love shopping online as much as on the high street, and I think you’ll agree, you can pick up a bargain in both if you search hard enough. But sometimes it’s easier to let someone else do the work for you - I’m not talking personal shoppers here, I’m talking discount sites, of course! But where to begin? There are so many voucher codes out there, so how do you know you’re getting the best one for your chosen shop? Well, I’ve found one that might just be the perfect place to start…

Hey Guys! Since it's been a while (5 days is a long time for a blogger!), I thought I'd update you with my most recent beauty purchases this week. Here I have 5 items, two of which are frequent repurchases of mine... for example Lush's Aqua Marina facial cleanser I'm yet to post a review on this cleanser yet, surprising considering the fact I've accumulated about 20 pots of this stuff over the past few years! I often purchase Aussies infamous 3 Minute Miracle in the Original formula, this time I've spotted the Shine formulation so I am excited to give that a whirl...
What did I purchase then?
What did I purchase then?
Topshop is one of my favourite stores and it is on fiiiiiiiiire recently!
Here I have some hot picks that I purchased the other day, all featuring some gorgeous prints. All items are available to purchase here, available for UK residents and international readers!

I absolutely love Barry M nail varnishes, I have about 28 and counting in my collection and this is my first Barry M nail varnish entry, starring Blueberry gelly! They are available to purchase at Barry M and any other official stockists for rrp £3.99...
Clinique's Full Potential Lips lipglosses are available to buy at Clinique for £16 each. I've included individual sale price to begin with as what I have (pictured) is a travel set of some of the shades within the Full Potential Lips range and some limited edition shades. I purchased the set from the airport last year for £21 and this includes 5 double ended applicators with 10 glosses in total.
Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream is the new addition to Maybelline's BB Cream line, this particular BB Cream is catered for those who suffer from oily/combination skin and have the potential to help those skins that also suffer from spots and blemishes as it contains 2% salicylic acid, whilst protecting the skin from UVA/UVB rays by also containing SPF15.
I've tried a few other BB creams prior to this one, such as No7's Beautiful Skin and Garnier's Miracle Skin Perfector (reviewed here) and decided it was time to try Maybelline's offer on a BB cream catering for us gals with oily skins.

Yesterday I decided to go venture into Manchester Arndale (It has been a while!) and picked up a few items for college next month, after a lot of you enjoyed seeing what I purchased in my Primark Haul post, I thought you'd love to see some of the items I've purchased in my most recent shop.
The Body Shop Baked-To-Last Blush is a shimmery, baked (no surprises there) duo blush that features a fuchsia pink blush and separate light peachy coloured highlighter that both contain traces of shimmer...

OOTD Casual Summer Tailoring
As I am literally a few views away from 2000 (All in the space of 2 weeks since I started CGP - thankyou everyone!), I thought I would post my first (Of many in the future) outfit posts.
Today's post is all on how to create a versatile Summer outfit. Perfect for a night out to a restaurant or a daytime garden party, this outfit is cheap and easy to recreate despite its expensive look! This is a great outfit for anyone on a budget.

Another Lush instalment!
Despite it's name, Lush's Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter can be used on any areas of dry skin such as the knees, elbows, heels, hands, nails and of course the cuticles.
I don't necessarily suffer from dry cuticles, but I do suffer from dry, cracked heels and chapped hands! I've previously tried Lush's Helping Hands Cream, this worked wonderfully although it did have an odd Playdough scent, so now is the time to see how well Lemony Flutter works...

MAC Studio Fix Fluid is one of MAC's most popular foundations, it has been tried and tested by many yet continues to be one their best sellers, let's see why...
Wednesday, 24 July 2013
Primark for me is one of those stores that you always forget exists whilst your out shopping on the highstreet! Some people may consider Primark to be a bit cheap and tacky, but they've recently upped their game and if you shop around you can find some amazing quality purse friendly items!
Today's post features some of the items I purchased from Primark over the weekend...

MAC Blush Baby is one of my first and still remains as one of my absolute favourite MAC blushes that I own, this is definitely one of those blushes that look flattering on a wide variety of skin tones ranging from the palest to some of the darkest! This is why...
Maybelline was the first ever brand that I had tried foundations from (Now that's a couple of years ago!), my favourite of-course was Maybelline's Dream Satin Liquid. However, after realising that there was more to the foundation world than just liquid bottle types, I decided to venture on in what would become my foundation journey!

I am a body scrub fanatic, whether it be in the cooler months where you can 100% count on me sporting a fake tan or when I am in need of sloughing away dead skin cells - a body scrub is my saviour.
I recently featured a poll on my blog, asking which 'base' product shall I give you all a review on next, here is the winner of that poll! Collection (Previously Collection 2000) Illuminating Touch Concealer.

Today's post is a very special post featuring my Alyce Paris prom dress, I thought that I would feature my dress in a post as I feel that the overall quality, detail and look of the dresses Alyce Paris create are outstandingly beautiful, from head to toe.

As with all Kurt Geiger purchases, you get the infamous red bag with 'Kurt Geiger' printed on either side. When instore you are treated amazingly! They have no hesitation on going straight to you and helping you out, not many stores you can say that about.
Continuing with my Summer tag, why not throw in a BB cream! The perfect base for Summertime, as its not too heavy yet covers any flaws whilst having the ability to look natural and contain added skin benefits such as SPF - essential for days out in the sun!

Urban Decay Bamboo PaletteI've not seen many reviews on this palette to be honest and I'm not quite sure as to why! I bought this when I was travelling to Cyprus in 2009, so I've had this palette for quite some time indeed.
I purchased the Tea Tree Pore Minimiser from The Body Shop at £7.50 for 30ml (1.0flOz) of product.
The packaging is reasonably attractive, it is tailored to match all of the Tea Tree range at The Body Shop with its green tube and leaf background. Its perfect for travel as none of the product can escape from the twist cap tube and small enough to fit into your bag without taking up too much room!
Here's my second instalment on my LUSH product posts!
Everyone has a soft spot for Lush, whether it be the smell as you walk past one of their stores, the feel of their shower jellies or a crush on one of the store staff! We all have our moment of pure lushyness... or is that just me?

Here is a review on one of MAC's best selling blushes, MAC Peaches. This is a pretty peach shade and is a great alternative if you're someone that tends to wear a lot of pink on your cheeks.
My first Lush Product Entry! Starring Charisma Skin tint and Feeling Younger Skin tint, which can be both purchased at Lush at £12 for 20g of product each in a sturdy screw cap pot.
Previously I've reviewed this products sister, Good Things Fresh Start Creamy Cleanser. Now its time for Good Things Stay Clear Purifying Cleanser to take centre stage! As I said in my previous post, I suffer from oily blemish prone skin so the 'Stay Clear' cleanser definitely appealed to me as it claims to cater for this specific skin type.
Here I have Loreal's Colour Riche Quad in Velours Noir. I got this at Boots on offer for £5.99 when it was first released, it retails for around £7.99 but I'm sure you can find one on offer somewhere! Anyway, I was eager to get my hands on beige trench (Which was sold out everywhere!) I came home, slightly disappointed but that was until I opened my beautiful new eyeshadow palette...

This post is for anyone that suffers from oily/shiny/spot prone skin! (Skin that I unfortunately have) and here are 3 of my favourite moisturisers that I feel tackle my skin problems the most effectively.

Well I've been using MAC's brush cleanser for a few months now, I do try to wash my brushes after whenever I've used them, but you know how it is... sometimes we get a bit lazy!
