Beauty Bay makeup haul! 


Hello my little buttons!! 

I’m so sorry, I’ve not posted in about two weeks, it feels like forever!! I’m still alive, I have been crazy busy with work and other commitments which has had to take priority over my blog. I’m hoping to get back in the swing of things asap, so to kick it off I thought I’d share with you my recent beauty bay haul! I only bought a couple of bits but thought I’d share them with you. I will be reviewing all these items so if you’d like to read more please subscribe to my blog for email updates when I post something new! 

1 Mango Face Wash

I’ve been in the market for a new face wash for a while, the last product I tried broke my skin out so I’ve been pretty choosy about what to try next. I saw this and thought what the heck, I love eating mangos so why not put them on my face! 

2. La girl eyeshadow palettes 

As a palette junkie i’ve been eyeing these up for while. Apart from them being a metallic master piece they were only £3 each. Here in the UK we don’t have la girl cosmetics so when I saw that beauty bay were stocking some of their products I had to give them a go. 

3. La girl Pro Conceal 

Last but not least is this little beauty. This is for sure a ‘youtube made me buy it’ product as I’ve seen it everywhere. For £5 it’s worth a go! I’m just hoping the colours right for my skin as although it’s the shade light ivory it still looks pretty orange to me. 

So that’s everything! I have another haul blog post coming up from superdrug, damn their 3 for 2 lol. Hope you all have a fantastic day!

Makeup Porn – Anna Sui !!!

Hello my little buttons!

Welcome to my new series of makeup Porn! In this series I’ll be showing you super sexy makeup photos from new and old brands that either I am already in love with or am desperate to try. Looking at and discovering new makeup is one of my favourite past times, so I thought I’d share the love! Some photos will b taken from the Web (which I will state) others I have taken myself. So if looking at makeup is your thing too, grab a cuppa n get ready to float into makeup heaven.

One of my favourite places in the world to order makeup from is beauty bay, you can find so many unique brands that aren’t always as easily avalible in the UK. One brand I discovered recently is Anna Sui. After some research I learnt that Anna is New York based fashion designer, who is huge in the fashion world creating some really unique pieces and stirring up a storm at New York fashion week. She also has a cosmetics line, the first thing I noticed was the packaging. It’s to die for! Each product has its own charm with some inspiring and intriguing qualities. All the photos used in this blog were found on beauty bays website,  without any further babble, get ready to druel!

As a palette junkie they were the first thing I looked for, i found an eyeshadow palette and a lip palette. Really pretty designs and a great colour selection. I was drawn to the eyebrow palette at the top, the packaging is in the shape of a chunky black bow, just adorable! What makes the brow powders interesting is the colour selection, the green and yellow powders are something I haven’t seen before and am considering buying out of curiosity, it has some really good reviews and I just can’t stop looking at it.

Another gorgeous selection! Top left are, I think, the must stunning blushes I have seen in my entire life. I adore the lilac blue blush as well as how these are presented in the compacts. Next are the lipsticks with a twist, they are shaped in to a star instead of the traditional bullet, really nice touch. I had to include the cute trinkets on the bottom left which are eyeshadow holders! So you can pop one of your favourite Anna Sui eyeshadows all over the lid for a simple look and take it with you for touch ups through the day. I love this idea! Last but not least is the pot of gel foundation primer, I would buy this just to look pretty on my vanity!

Thought I’d add these pics to show the attention to detail in items that normally are fairly plain and simple. Top left is concealer, top right is foundation beleive it or not! Bottom left is a creamy foundation primer and bottom right is rose shampoo.

Last but not least I have to give a nod to these gorgeous nail polishes!!! As well as having some rich super pretty colours the little bird on top is the icing on the cake, again the attention to detail is phenomenal.

The whole line just looks fabulous, I’ll be honest it’s quite pricey, ranging from around £7 to £30. From what I have read online the products are worth every penny and are of a high quality so from the sounds of it you really do get what you pay for. What have you tried from Anna Sui? I’d love to hear in the comments below!
