Maybelline Color Elixer Caramel Infused Review Swatches

It's been a couple of years since I've picked up a lipgloss. Often the sticky nature of glosses feel uncomfortable on the lips, causing them to stick to each other pulling skin and leaving me with unsightly chaps... It's thanks to Anna though that I've decided to venture out into lipglosses again (she has GOT to be the best enabler in the beauty blogging business!). After watching some of her recent videos, umming and ahh-ing, I've picked up this Maybelline Color Elixer in Caramel Infused.

When someone tells you 'nude nails are the colour of this season', never believe them - nude nails are always in! I will never tire of nude nail polishes. Every single time I browse the nail polish aisle, while I inadvertedly check out the bright hot pinks and reds, its nude colours that I take with me to the counter. I just love how these shades elongate the appearance of my small stubby fingers, like how nude heels flatter and lengthen our pins. I've got a couple of beautiful nude polishes to share with you today. While they look similar in their bottles, they actually look different on the nails.


Going Nude...

My ideal world would smell like a bakery. A cake shop. A cookie wonderland. I adore anything that tastes and smells of vanilla. Unfortunately the world isn't like that so what I do is immerse myself in real cookies and cupcakes and of course a collection of vanilla fragrances and creams.

Now here's a launch I'm excited about!

Miley Cyrus, singer, actress, known for twerking and riding a wrecking ball in her birthday suit, also happens to be creating cosmetics. She's working together with MAC Cosmetics in their Viva Glam collection releasing an electric-pink lipstick as well as a matching shimmering lip gloss. The makeup line will come out in shops January 2015 and all product sales will assist those people who are living with and suffering from HIV/AIDS.

The dreary British climate can cause chaos with your skin, particularly for individuals with pre-existing skin problems such as eczema or psoriasis. Each winter season our body is subjected to harsh changes, leading the capillaries within the epidermis to change dramatically to take into account the changing temperatures. This tends to leave your skin appearing flushed, red and weather beaten, and overall a lil less glam.

If there's a type of makeup product I would purchase over and over in the same shade, that would be foundation. This year I noticed my foundation collection exponentially increase. I just love testing different brands and different formulas. Because these are face products, I have them in rotation and so I don't get guilty as much as when I purchase vampy lipsticks that generally need a bit more loving.

Here's a recent haul for face bases by myself and my sister from Sephora, a post that we've both put up together. Two things that I have been looking forward to since the minute I booked my trip to the US... Let the excitement begin!

This collection boasts suggestive names and the kinky packaging includes smooth and silky rope ties, and an ornate lock and key pattern, take a look...

En route to see my sister in sunny San Diego I picked up a few bits from heathrow's duty free. I absolutely love shopping at the LHR airport, the beauty selection is just so good, bumping it to perhaps my favourite airport in the world! Here are the products I picked out...
