New Sleek Cream Blush - Sleek Blush by 3 in California

I spotted these gorgeous cream blushes from Sleek in Superdrug today, Sleek are well know for their pigmented powder blushes which I own a few of. 

Sleek Californ.I.A. Blush By 3


 
These are as pigmented as the powder blushes (advertised as intensely pigmented cream blushes) they are smooth to the touch, very creamy and transfer on the skin beautiful, can be build up to a strong look for an evening out/day wear, the shade in the middle of the palette (The Surf) is more of a highlight colour on me so I use that on top of cheekbones and browbone. Its so awesome to have everything in one palette, no separate highligher to carry around.


OC - The Surf - Newport Peach

Talking of Shades they are Newport Peach - The Surf - OC, all wearable stunning shades for Spring/Summer, don't you just love the names!

Well at £9.99 these are so worth the money and truly amazing.

Topshop Makeup Haul

I went on a little trip to Topshop and picked up some naughty makeup bits, of course I need more makeup!  Every girl needs more heh heh....

What I picked up

Topshop Lip Bullet in Covet

Topshop Lipstick in Macaroon

Topshop Nail Varnish in Mardi Gras - Can't find this online sorry

Topshop Lipliner in Fearless - Can't find the shade but link to the lipliners provided

Topshop Blush in Afternoon Tea

I would say the makeup is not cheap but is reasonable for what you get quality-wise.  The lady at the till told me that Topshop makeup are similar to Mac or comes from the same supplier at least, I said "really wow" and went back to get a few more goodies. 

The Topshop Lip Bullet came on so smoothly, I read some reviews so thought I would give them a try, being a lipstick junkie I can't help it. I do love the Topshop Lipsticks at £8.00 the quality is high-end like and stays put on lips, I would say the shade Macaroon will suit any skintone, its a lovely peachy colour.  The Topshop Lipliner is a must to keep my lipstick in place - I didn't use it with the Lipstick in Macaroon but I have used it with other lipsticks I own, again like the lip bullet & lipstick this came on smooth, such a pretty pink shade, love it - so no problems there to report.

The Blush - well, what can I say? this is a bit of heaven in a pot - although it looked scary bright, once blended in it was so flattering on the skin.  It was a steal at £7.00, yes they put the price up by £1.00 but still worth it in my opinion.



All the Topshop Nail range is stunning, I will be going back to try the Topshop Matt range, the wear time is pretty good and they have so many shades to pick from.



Do you have any Topshop Makeup?  What are your Favs?

Illamasqua Gleam Highlighter in Aurora

Walking past the Illamasqua counter in Selfridges I was drawn in by this little gem.....

Just looking at the Illamasqua Gleam in Aurora made me think, I need you in my life.....stunning looking highlighter which I thought would be a great addition to my spring makeup looks.  I knew the moment I saw this I would get a lot of use from it.

My first swatch of this and I can say I was truly in love, what's not to love in the Illamasqua range of makeup? I really don't think they do anything badly, in their range.  Let me know if you have come across something though...

Anyway here are some pictures....

Lovely packaging, a little on the big side but still stunning all the same.  Use this on, cheekbones, browbone, down the nose and cupids bow on lips...you will love this.  All the reviews on this product are 5/5 so I didn't think I could go wrong and I certainly have not.  This with my new lipstick haul click here and I'm good to go!

what's your favourite highlighter at the moment?
