Benefit/They're Real Push Up Liner & Remover

Say hello to the game changer. 

Benefit's latest campaign is all about teaching women worldwide that applying your liner is #criminallyeasy I adore the prison theme Benefit have focused on for this campaign as the orange and black packaging ties in beautifully with the 'They're Real' packaging, something that Benefit never cease to get spot on, and you know I really enjoy sleek packaging and eye catching design, Benefit always get these things so right. 

This fool proof liner pen has been in development for 5 years, and they have worked really hard to bring a product that excels in the land of liner. The team at Benefit have looked at liners over the years, the gel liner pots, the pencils, and the tip liners and the end result is this, a world first, this lash hugging pen features a revolutionary AccuFlex™ tip, meaning fool proof application ,even in the back of a cab on the way to that all important event.

Its the tip that really makes this product so special, it consists of a 'soft custom angled tip' allowing you to draw an easy line even on the curved surface of the eyelid, the 'flat wide guard' gently pushes your lashes aside  allowing you to really get in along the lash line, and finally the 'wide base' which aids in a steady application. This concept allows for greater control and stability in application, which in turns means your far more likely to obtain a much more precise result.
Just like the best selling mascara in the range this has incredible staying power, it really doesn't budge when it's been applied, it wont flake or dry out and stays colour true all day long. The matte finish  of the liner looks so sleek and really professional. 

Of  course with staying power usually means painful removal, but Benefit even have that covered, the other new addition to the 'They're Real' family is the 'They're Real' Remover, this is a really creamy formula and it makes light work of dissolving the liner and the mascara off the eyes gently but very effectively.
The release date for this one hasn't yet been announced but keep your eyes peeled as I'm sure it wont be long!

Clarins/HydraQuench Tinted Moisturiser

Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturiser*combines daily SPF protection of factor 15 and gives skin a beautiful radiant glow, I get really frustrated with these formulas though, not because they aren't good, but just because I feel like they don't offer enough coverage for me.
 The product applies beautifully and has the classic scent of peachy goodness, it makes it the perfect summer cover up on a much lighter than foundation basis. It doesn't give a really heavy coverage making it perfect for days when you need a little something but not a full face of make up, I've taken to wearing it to the gym, it still allows my skin to breathe and it feels really comfortable on the skin, that's thanks to the super moisturising formula and the bark extract.
50ml screw cap and tube retails for £30 head over to the Clarins Website to shop all 6 shades now, or pop into your local Clarins counter for a colour match.

Jimmy Choo/Exotic 2014

Launched in February this year this is Jimmy Choo's offering for Spring/Summer 2014.
This oozes sexy summer, and the box features the iconic snakeskin print that Jimmy Choo is known for.
The fragrance is packed full of gorgeous scents like blackcurrant sorbet, tiger orchids, pink grapefruit, passion flower and raspberry, it's a fruity yet not to sweet scent and I have to say this will be my go to fragrance this summer.

I have received so many compliments on this fragrance and I do love it, it's limited edition so grab it while you can, it retails at £44 for 60ml which is really good value for money.
Shop it on line at Boots.com

Millie Mackintosh Lash Collection/Portobello & Soho

I've been testing out Millie Mackintosh's Lash range over the weekend*, the collection consists of 8 different styles and each pair is named after a different area in London. 

I've been trialling 2 pairs recently above are the Soho Lashes, and the pair below are called Portobello. 
The Soho lashes (above) feature a clear band along the lash line meaning they look ultra real and the add a lovely natural fanned effect to the lashes. You could easily get away with wearing these for a daytime look. 

These lashes are the Portobello lashes, these are my fave of the 2 pairs I wore over the weekend, they are so thick and full but they don't look too over the top.

 I really like the fact that the box includes full instructions, amazing Ultrabond adhesive and a mini pair of tweezers, it has everything you need to be able to apply false lashes.

These stayed put all night and the Ultrabond glue didn't let me down. Millie's lashes have been created by the eyelash specialists Nouveau Lashes and the quality is outstanding, these lashes will last a long time with correct removal and storage back into the plastic tray to keep them safe.

I will be reviewing a few more styles over the next few weeks so keep an eye out for some more lovely lashes. If you cant wait then head over to the Nouveau Lashes Website and treat yourself to a few pairs, they retail at £8.99 per pack.

London/May 2014

Those of you who follow me on Instagram thank you for all your likes and comments on my pictures over this weekend.

I went to London as I booked tickets to see Katy Perry at the O2, nothing else to say about the night really other than AMAZING. If you get the chance to watch it, go, it was absolutely fantastic. 

What else to do in London, well shopping for one, and you know I don't need any excuses! 

Here are some pictures for you to enjoy, luckily for us the weather held out all weekend too. 
We stayed at the Hilton Canary Wharf, look at our beautiful hotel room
And just look at the view we had from our room window.....
Friday afternoon we headed to Oxford Street, of course I had to hit VS and Selfridge's, I really liked the 'Hello Beautiful' sign above the doors of Selfridge's. 
Saturday morning Westfield just a couple of tube stops away meant a day of retail therapy, I mentioned my Gok Wan outfits the other day and promised I'd feature it, well here it is... 
I teamed it up with some cute Primark floral flip flops and my trusty Mulberry handbag, I also threw in my beautiful Peach Bellini necklace from The Jewel Shack the colours match the pastel hues in this outfit so well, and my lipstick was my trusty old Snob from MAC. 
Saturday night meant getting glammed up, my fave! I wore a simple black cami top and my floral print skirt, I picked up the barely there sandals from River Island I added my Swarovski jewellery and my Ted Baker clutch to finish the outfit. 
Sunday meant for some more sight seeing and a trip to Covent Garden 
We went to Leicester square in the evening and went to the Five Guys burger bar, it's a huge chain that's really popular in the US I can see why the burgers were absolutely delicious! I had the veggie one and my boyfriend had the standard cheeseburger
The chips are all hand cooked in peanut oil, not fried, it really was yummy. 
A few cocktails later...
My evening outfits were quite similar I'm really into my printed skirts at the moment and teamed up with a plain cami they are so versatile. 

My other half and I took to taking lift selfies, so funny! 

I LOVE London, we've booked to go back for my birthday and though it's months away I cannot wait, a certain Mr Kors might just be in the horizon for me this birthday ;)
