A little treat from Debenhams & Lancome...(& a tip on buying foundations)

Hi Guys & Dolls!

I know it seems like I am forever shopping and buying new beauty products - it's true, I'm an addict, self confessed! Lol

So in THIS week's episode of 'What has Kiksy bought NOW?'

We haveeee *drumrolllllll pleaseeeee*


(Ps. what do we think of this background image for my product shoots? Do you like? Let me know!)

SO, girls, here's the tea. I walked into Debenhams on my birthday, to try to pick up the Lancome Tient Idole foundation which I have heard SO MUCH about! Literally every review i see is a positive one so i decided today is the day i bring this baby HOME! And while I was there, the ladies on the counter told me that Debenhams were having a 10% off discount on all beauty AND that if i bought two items, I would get a goodie bag!

MAC will always have a special place in my heart....

Some times, we can all get a bit distracted with the new and upcoming make-up brands that seem to keep propping up each day. While, I'm always interested in trying out new brands, I find myself going to back to my old faithful brands such as MAC!

MAC was the first make-up brand I ever used and really explored so it will always have a place in my heart! I find myself always going back to MAC to pick up my basics and bits for my kit. It's also nice to be able to see the new products that they have created.

So this post is dedicated to the new bits I've picked up as well replenishing my old faithfuls!

I picked up this bag of sponges for £5 for my make up  kit! I prefer using sponges to apply make face make  up instead of brushes. They give a smooth, streak free application and make blending much better and faster! I definitely prefer the triangle sponges over beauty blenders and these are a great affordable option as there are over 20 sponges in there for only a fiver! They are latex free and also great especially for make up artists - No need to clean face brushes especially if you are doing a lot of faces!

Picked up a few new bits and replaced some oldies here - My Cork lip liner had run out so i had to get a new one of my old faithful! Also had to get a new eyebrow pencil in Spiked! (Isnt it funny how you run out of your favourite things almost at the same time?) I also got a Mineralised Skin Finish powder which i realised i had never had before and i am currently LOVING! I literally wear just this, with concealer and I am good to go! Its light and wearable with a full coverage. What more could a girl want? Next i picked up a liquid lipstick in 'Feels so Grande' which i was told is like a liquid lipstick version of 'Ruby Woo' and I was sold instantly! Lastly, I got a free lipstick due to MAC's Back to MAC program (you get a free lipstick, for 6 empties) and i picked up a nude (obviously) in Peachstock - which again, I've never had before! WEIRD! Its recently become my favourite nude especially whilst worn with Cork lip liner!

What are your trusty favourites from MAC? Have you purchased anything new that you like from MAC or anything you're surprised you've never owned but recently discovered?

Let me know dolls!

This one is for all the NUDE lovers: KKW x KYLIE COSMETICS

Hi Guys & Dolls,

Well, well, well...what can I say? This is definitely a must-have for all my nude loving ladies!

I was so excited to get my hands on this after seeing the pictures online of Kim and after watching Shayla's review on youtube. (I could care less about Kylie, but I am a HUGE fan of Kim and I love her make up so I had to pick these up).

(PS, the make-up in the photograph was done by me and photographed by my dear friend and photographer Black Crayon check him out, hes amazing!)

Colourpop Haul & Review

Hi Guys & Dolls!

I know I've been away for a while, but i'm back and I plan to blog at least once a week! So lets see how that goes! 

I wanted to talk about my recent haul and experience with shopping from Colourpop! I've seen the brand everywhere and literally fallen in love with their eyeshadows after seeing how pigmented they are. While browsing their site, i realised that their eyeshadows are only $5 each, which is incredible and very affordable! I decided to purchase a few eyeshadows, liquid lipstick and eyeliner.
