St. Tropez Gradual Tan Review

Hi Lovelies, Sorry I haven't done much 'Blogging' this week, it's been very busy to the lead up to My Birthday which is Tomorrow :)
Last Friday I tried out a sample of Xen Tan but not having any left I thought I'd maintain it with My St. Tropez Gradual Tan in Medium-Dark.




St. Tropez has been My all-time favourite Tan but now I'm loving the Xen Tan too.

About St. Tropez Gradual Tan

This enriched, nourishing body moisturiser cleverly combines serious skin care benefits with a healthy touch of bronze. Infused with soothing aloe vera, this lotion will help give you smoother, skin while building a gradual golden tan, every day.

My Review

So I applied this Last Night before bed, just like You would any other Moisturiser, Then made sure I gave My hands a good scrub after as You dont want orange palms!

Don't be fooled By this St. Tropez Tan thinking it's only a gradual Tan because I think it's alot darker than Your average gradual Tanner.

So When I woke up This Morning My skin was A lovely golden colour & streak free.

But compaired to the Xen Tan, You could tell it was fake tan as it's more of a Golden bronze colour rather than like then Xen Tan a more Olive Natural tone colour.

The smell is not as nice as the Xen Tan either, Xen Tan has a gorgeous vanilla smell when the St. Tropez has that fake tan biscuit smell.

I do Love St. Tropez but Xen Tan has took over its first Place Position.

I rate this Tan 8.5/10, Its great but after trying Xen Tan it isn't as great as that.

What is Your Favourite Fake Tanning Product?

Thanks for Reading Lovelies, Have a Fab Day.

P.S The voting opens on the Collection 2000 Facebook Page for The Easter Nails some time today, Please Like & Share My Nails <3

Clinique Even Better Foundation Review

Hi Lovelies, Yesterday I got Me a sample of Clinique's Even Better Foundation in 08 Beige.


About
New Even Better Foundation SPF15 oil free formula, a powerful foundation developed to help combat hyper-pigmentation and deliver brighter skin, both immediately and over time. Includes treatment benefits to help even skin tone and SPF protection to help prevent future hyper-pigmentation. Provides moderate to full coverage, leaving skin instantly perfected with a unique mineral blend.

Review
I Love Clinique Foundations and Was very excited to try this out.
This foundation wasn't too thick or runny, It went on well & the results were the coverage I love,
A natural Finish but with a good coverage.
I'm really happy with the results of this foundation & I rate it 10/10, Priced at £22.00 it's not too expensive either.


My Face !

I highly recommend that You try out the foundation on Your chin at the Clinique counter before purchasing, as I used to have the colour Vanilla in a different Clinique foundation but when tried on My chin it was very grey rather than golden.

Have You tried this Foundation?

Thanks for Reading.

Enjoy the Sunshine :)

Hello Sunshine... Get Your Tan On !

Hi Lovelies (I'm on a Blogging Marathon Today!) Yesterday I also Received a Sample from Xen Tan to try out.
I was Sent The Xen Tan Deep Bronze Luxe in Dark for Face & Body.




I have used Many Fake Tan Brands before, St. Tropez being one of My Favourites, but soon as this came through My Door I had to Try it out That Evening!

About
Voted Best Ever Beauty Buy by Elle Beauty, this is the ultimate in self-tan indulgence. Offering outstanding results, it contains more DHA than our best-selling Deep Bronze product, so offers a deeper colour after just one application. Plus the larger pack means you'll enjoy even more tans from each purchase. It also contains additional vitamin E, Green Tea and skin-loving anti-oxidants that soothe, smooth and nourish skin while providing an instant and natural colour you'll love.

What's more, the pleasant vanilla fragrance will leave you feeling wrapped in luxury.

The ultra-sheer instant colour formula is easy to apply, goes on evenly and is completely streak-free. Giving you a gorgeous glow that'll last for up to seven days, and a confidence boost that'll last even longer.

My Review

So I applied this Last Night after putting in My Sleep in Rollers.
When first applying it I noticed the smell..... Devine ! I have never had a Fake Tan smell so good, I thought it smelt like Vanilla & Chocolate, Which wasn't helping My cravings for a naughty choccy bar!

So I applied this all over My Body in the way that You would with any other Fake Tan, Then gave the palms of My hands a good scrub after just incase! (Orange Palms is a No-Go)

Then again it was Time for Bed Zzzzzz...

I woke up This Morning & couldn't believe how dark I was from One application.

I Did a before & After Photo To Try & Show You the difference.



My Arm Before!



My Arm & Hand This Morning :)

I had no Patchy bits, only on My Wrist but I think that's because I was rushing doing it past Midnight Last Night.

I will be purchasing this Product Ready for My Birthday Next Week & Ready For Summer, Its a Must Have Tan and I give it 10/10.

Its RRP is £28.99 for 236ml and can be purchased from The Xen Tan Website.


What's Your Favourite Fake Tan? Have You tried Xen Tan Before?

Thanks For Reading Lovelies.

Velcro Sleep in Rollers Review ♥

Hi Lovelies, Yesterday I Received some Sleep In Rollers from Velcrosleeprollers.com.
This Product is HUGE in Liverpool & has been spotted on The Desperate Housewives Cast.




The Product




Inside the Bag it contains 2 packs of 10 rollers (20 in total) and a little bag with some hair grips in.




I really couldn't wait to try these out so when I got in from work at 11.30pm I washed My Hair & extensions, dryed it with the hairdryer and put them in.




They are super easy to put in & I placed all the rollers going back from the front of my head to create volume apart from in my side fringe I put that one going forward.

Then it was Finally Sleep Time !! Zzzzz

So they are called 'sleep in rollers' but I didn't find it all that comfortable; Whether it was because I had packed My hair with rollers I do not know, but I could have done with a little support under My neck as I felt in an uncomfortable position.

So I woke up This Morning, Took the rollers out & the results were Amazing !
I had sexy Big Hair and the only thing extra I had to do was run the straighteners through My fringe because it was a little wild.








I will use these rollers again, and probably try sleeping in them but with less in My Hair next time!

Buy Yours from the Velcro sleep rollers website for £16.50.

Have You tried this Product? What did You think?

Thanks for Reading Lovelies.

Enjoy this Gorgeous Sunny Saturday.

Christian Semi Permanent Eyebrow Makeup Kit

Hi Lovelies, Sorry I haven't been blogging as much the past week, had a busy week & had a busy Mothers Day Weekend with My Family :)

On Saturday I received this Gorgeous Christian Eyebrow Makeup Kit from Izabelle Hammon...



The Christian eyebrow makeup kit includes:

1 Water–resistant powder. The powder is super quality water resistant eyebrow makeup. Once applied, no touch-ups are needed.

3 Stencils – Christian’s eyebrow stencils are designed to help as a guide to create thin, natural or thick shaped eyebrows.

1 Brush – The application brush is made of natural bristles designed to gently brush the eyebrow makeup on the stencil to create a perfectly arched eyebrow in just seconds.

1 Compact mirror – Mirrored case to complete your Christian Eyebrow Makeup kit.

It comes in 8 different shades & My shade is Dark Brown.

My Review

I'm really one for filling My Eyebrows & making them a little thicker & more prominent.

You can use the stencils in the kit to create an Eyebrow thickness of your choice or use it freehand.

As I love My own shape of My Eyebrows I did My Eyebrows Freehand.

Before



Very Fine Eyebrows and Light compaired to My Hair colour.

After



Gorgeous Natural Looking Eyebrows that will last all day.

I normally use a brown Eyeshadow on My Eyebrows & before using this kit I thought It would just look the same but the results were alot better than expected; They looked more natural & My Boyfriend even commented on how much more natural they looked compaired to using an Eyeshadow.

You can Purchase the kit from the Izabelle Hammon Website for £26.54 by contacting them via the website.

I Rate this Product 9/10 It is a Fab Product a tiny bit steep in Price for some People just for Your eyebrows but it does last all day & gives a Gorgeous natural colour & finish.

I really do Love this & will continue to use Everyday & will probably purchase once this has run out.

Whats You Fave Eyebrow Products?

Thanks for Reading Lovelies.

Clinique Superbalanced Foundation Review

Hi Lovelies, The otherday in April 2012 Issue of Cosmopolitan You could get a Free 5 Day Sample of a Clinique Foundation.

So I went to My Local Clinique stand in House of Fraser & because I've used the Clinique Repairwear Anti-Aging Foundation before & I LOVE IT !! I thought I'd try a different one and that one was Clinique Superbalanced Foundation in Vanilla.


About The Foundation:
The great equaliser for combination skin. Provides moisture and absorbs oil where needed. Minimises appearance of fine lines. Helps protect skin from environmental damage.

My Review
I Love a Full Coverage Foundation & This really wasn't for Me, It made My Dry Patches look worse & My skin really shiny which is doing the opposite as it's supposed too! Plus only being a medium coverage You could still see slight blemishes and I didn't feel confident wearing it.

Average Retail Price is £21.50 & I'd Rate it 5/10.

I give it 5/10 because it wasn't terrible it just didn't work for Me, Maybe If You like a medium coverage foundation & have gorgeous skin already You could try this out :)

I'm going to stick to My Repairwear one instead. *thumbs up*

Collection 2000 Extreme Felt Liner FAIL

Morning Lovelies,
Collection 2000's or should I say Collection's Extreme Felt Liner in Black is My Favourite Everyday Liner & seeing You Tube Video's & Blogs saying it stains Your eyes I was like 'Are You Serious!! It doesn't do that to Me!?'.
But and a big BUT I used the Blue Felt Liner on Saturday & The Purple Felt Liner on Sunday & both Night's before bed I wiped My Makeup off and it was still there !!!
Being too tired both night's to continue scrubbing I woke up and the stain was still there, Got another face wipe and It still wouldn't budge !
So after reading blogs & watching You Tube's Thinking You were all crazy!! You were all right... Collection 2000's/Collection's Extreme Felt Liner does stain !!
But thankfully the black one I wear everyday doesn't stain its just the Blue & Purple.
Thought I'd let You all know The Big Fail I found out this Weekend.
Thanks for Reading

Fun Ballerina Bun ♥

Hi Lovelies, Today I did this Fun Ballerina Bun as Seen on The Beauty Department Website on My Boyfriends Daughter's Hair.



It Looks really cute & different, but most of all it's super easy to do.

All You need to do for the French Plait at the back is Tip Your Hair upside down & start to French Plait from the base of Your neck, Once You have reached where You'd like your bun to be, secure the plait off with a clear band.

Now Flip Your head back & Brush the rest of your hair including the end of the plait into a high pony.

Tease & Backcomb the Pony a little to give volume, then twist into a bun & secure with kirby grips/bobby pins.

Spray with Hairspray if desired.

I Really Love this Look & If You know how to French Plait/Braid then it will be really simple to do on someone else's hair & i'd say 4/10 on hardness to do on Your own hair.

Hope You Love this Look.

Please Comment & Follow.

Zebra Nails with Pink Ring Finger ♥

Hi Lovelies, Just did a Zebra Print Look on My Nails...


I felt like doing something different & this is what I chose.
Zebra Print Nails with Pink on the Ring Finger.

Products I Used:


Andrea Fulerton Dot & Flick Pen, Elegant Touch French Maicure White & Barry M Pink Flamingo

It really is Sooooo easy to do as the lines dont need to be perfect.

I applied 2 coats of Elegant Touch white to My nails except Ring finger, and did 2 coats of Pink Flamingo on My Ring Finger.

Once Fully Dry I then drew on Zebra Print using My Andrea Fulerton Pen.

Again Leave to fully Dry & apply a Top Coat.




I Think Its a Fun Look & having the Ring Finger a different colour sets the look off perfectly.

Hope You like this look, Please comment as I love hearing what You all have to say.

Thanks For Reading
