Mizz Worthy's Stuff Contest Entry

So this is my attempt at Mizz Worthy's Stuff Contest for a dramatic look, i took my eye inspiration from the goth trends on the catwalk and and my lips from colour ready for my lips although i switched the colours to red and black.

Eyes:
UDPP
MAC Dark Soul Pigment
Barry M Silver Grey Pigment

MAC Gesso e/s
Collection 200 black glitter liner
Rimmel Sexy curves mascara

Face:
MAC studio fix foundation

Lips:
Clinique Ready-to-Wear lipstick

FOTD


So today i thought i would try using softwash grey in my look, i also used shroom on the inner tearduct and jest all over my lid, i like the end result i think it brings the blues in my eyes out,



I used Rimmel Sexy Curves Mascara to finish the look off.

For my lips i used MAC myth l/s, DIOR clear gloss and Benefit High Beam to pale them out a little bit more

Review : Miss Sporty Light Reflecting Foundation



Colour - Med/Dark, was still too light for me im nw 30 though so maybe would suit a nw 25 ? 2/5
Pigmentation - Poor had to apply ALOT of layer 2/5
Long-wearing - OMG came off after an hour, not joking 1/5
Packaging - I liked the squeezy tube 3/5
Price - £2.93 4/5


12/ 25 - Ok if you r not looking for much coverage and only want to spend a couple of pounds, but this doesnt last and the colour selection is very poor

Review: baygifts




Its a Lush type company, handmade bath bombs, bath salts, soaps and loads more, and i was lucky enough to try some. Let me tell you i have tried loads and loads of products like these and have never been 100% happy with what i buy, especially soaps as they always seem to dry me out, but not these soaps!

I got four to try
They work really well, and dont dry the skin out, after the shower you can feel the difference in your skin nicely moisturised i didnt need to apply much at all only my really dry areas! The scents are gorgeous too nothing to over the top, very fresh and true.

Another one of their fab product ive tried so far is their bath bomb, i havent used it in the bath yet but used a chunk in the shower to compare it to Lush Emotibomb, and it was better the scent was stronger didnt fade away the second it had fizzed up it stayed for my whole shower which is amazing and it only took a 50p size amount too which is less than a quarter of the size of a Lush Emotibomb!! They retail for £3.89, which is a bargin considering the size, bigger than the palm of my hand you could easily get two bath bombs out of just one of these.

They sell other things too, Solid Body Scrub bars, body butters, body creams, bath salts, home scents, massage melts, jewellery and various other items to go with your soaps etc :) Its a fab company and the products are great quality, the attention to appearence is another special element with baygifts.

In the UK there is free shipping and i also have a special discount code for, for 10% off, wjen you get to the checkout type FRIEND into the code section to recieve your discount.

Let me know what you think of the products if you buy anything id love to hear what you guys think! Im about to place another order!! :)

Spring Cleaning

So this is a bit of a boring post however its a very important issue, and it hygiene. Im just going go through makeup items and how long they typically last but doesnt mean it will last that long, some may last longer some may last shorter.

Liquid Foundation - There are two different types of liquid foundation oil-based and water-based, tyically these last 18 months & 12 months, from when you first open them. Please watch or for separation or a change in colour, smell or texture as these are also signs its time to say good bye.

Concealer
- This will last you around 12 months, though if the texture becomes cakey on application its time to toss it.

Pressed Powder
- Around a year is used with a sponge because the oils are transferred into the powder, but up to 18 months if used with a CLEAN brush.

Loose Powder
- Up to two years

Eye Shadow
- Will last for up to 3 years, but crumbling eyeshadow is a sign its starting to turn and you should treat yourself to some nice new ones.

Eye Liner
- Again this will last you 3 years if sharpened or cleaned regularly, but if it becomes dry and tugs on application you needa new one!

Mascara
- This lasts for about four months, but use your own judgement, you should through it away if it becomes dry and flakey.

Lipstick - Between 1 - 2 years, you'll know its off if the smell changes!

Lipgloss
- Same as your lipstick, its the colour changes or the smell changes new one!

Nail Polish
- When the yellowish layer appears its time to chuck it, but normally around 12 months.

Makeup Brushes
- These will last forever is cared for well, but clean after every liquid use and for powder items every week will do.

Other tips, if you want to be really good take a black marker and write the day it was first opened and when it should be chucked that way itll remind you.

Throw away any makeup used if you develope an infection if the bacteria gets into it the infection will only keep re appearing.

Keep makeup out of sunlight, the light and heat will degrade the perservatives, meaning it wont last aslong.

Sorry if that bores you but its always helpful to be reminded, we all love our makeup and wouldnt want to ruin it!
