17 Cosmetics.

17 Cosmetics is a well known make up brand in the UK. It is a drugstore brand, which means the price of there products are super cheap. They sell products such as:

- Face products e.g: foundation , bronzer, Blusher and Concealer
- Lip products e.g: Lipstick and Lipgloss
- Eye products e.g: Eyeshadows, Mascaras, Khol pencils and liquid eyeliners.
- A wide range of Nail polishes
- Tools and accersories e.g: make up brushes and manicure sets etc.
Here are some of the things that I have purchased and things that I absoloutly adore.

Shade: Dolly Mixture
Price: £4.99
Collection: Candy Collection.

As you can see from the picture the colours are so candy like Hense the collection name. The pink the blue and the yellow are all very summery colours. And theres a gorgeous little tuitorial on how to use the whole trio for one look http://www.boots.com/en/17/17-Sweet-as-Candy-Video/. I think these colours will never go out of date. And you can use them all efficiently. My personal fave has to be the pink. Its such a subtle pink once applied to the lid. And the blue is just dreamy. The yellow goes without saying. The shadows are so very pigmented. And they have the absoloutle least shimmers in them.

Shade: Ivory coast
Price: £3.49
Note: Note: Product still available but in a brand new packaging.  

This solo eyeshadow to be honest with you wasn't really my favourite when first purchased. I hated it and the reason to that is because it had 101 shimmers in it. And I usually stick to the matte shadows 'cause I like to 'play it safe' but this eyeshadow just didn't do it for me. So instead I started using it as a higlight. For my brow bone and also for the top of my cheek bones. And it works like a wonder. I think this shadow would be amazing for all the shimmer fans. This could be a 2in1 product an eyeshadow and also a highlight. So if you hate shimmers but want a highlight which is cheap and looks gorgeous go for this one.

Shade: Shocking Pink
Price: £3.49
Note: Product still available but in a brand new packaging.

The same thing applies for this shadow too. But I really like this shadow to be shimmery because the colour is just gorgeous. But for me the colour is like a big step (: if you know what I mean it's so very bright. So instead I usually use it as a blush. And I have heard many other people on youtube do too. So yeah an all round product. So if you love that shocking look this shadow is perfect for you.

Shade: Plum Pudding
Price: £4.99
Note: Product not sold anymore :(

I bought this trio absoloutly ages ago. When I first started off with make up. All the colours are absoloutly gorgeous. You can acheive a gorgeous smokey look by using just this trio. The colours do look shimmery but once applied no shimmers are visable. Absoloute Love!

Naural Collection Make up

Hello there :) 
I have some wonderful Natural collection goodies here I would like to share some good words about. I absoloutly love love love Natural Collection. They are by far the best cheap make up providers. Ahh I adore them so much. They have a wonderfull offer of 3 for 5. Which basically means you can purchase any three make up items for only £5.00. And if your just looking for the one item it will cost you £1.99. Here some of my favouritess :D

Shade: Sweet Cheeks.
Price: £1.99
You may have already heard many good things about the Natural Collection blushers. Well thats because they come in the most gorgeous shades. This particular shade is not to bright and not unnoticeable. I love it. The pigmentation is so amazing. It has absoloutly no shimmers whatso ever. Just a matte shade. In my oppinion blushers with no shimmers are the best. I hate it when I've applied some bronzer and thats got shimmers then I apply some blusher and thats got shimmers too. I mean that just looks like I have painted myself with glitter. So I always go for matte shades :)

Shade: Cocoa / Strawberry
Price: 1.99
From the Natural Collection range the eyeshadows are the ones I love the most. They are super pigmented. And they come in the best shades. This duo here is amazing for that natural look. They are so natural yet they make your eyes look so glamourous with the shimmers. Love it.

Shade: Medium
Price: £1.99
This has got to be the best concealer I have found, by far. The consistency is absoloutly amazing. I wear it to school and it stays on all day. Even whilst gym classes, Pe, running and even heavy athletics. I was so shocked how perfectly it concealed my undereye circles. Absoloutly hid them. They come in 2 shade. Medium and fair. The medium suits most skin tones. It's not runny and it glides on amazingly. It has been compared to the collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer. 
My all time fave <3

Shade: Sunshine
Price: £1.99
This little beauty here is the Natural Collection Bronzer. They sell two shades. Sunshine and Golden Glow. I have bought sunshine as it is the lightest. And Golden glow is a lot darker. The bronzer it's self is perfect for just lightly fethering it on your face. You know in those cold winter days. Where you don't want to look like you've been dipped in a bath full of tanning lotion. But just a little healthy colour on your face. That is exactly what the Natural Collection Bronzer in sunshine does. In my oppinion the Natural Collection bronzer in Golden Glow would be much better for contouring. This bronzer has the littlest shimmers. Hardly noticeable when on your face. 

I absoloutly adore Natural Collection. They are so inexpensive but the quality of their makeup is outstanding. If you do want to purchase any of these items and more go to your local Boot's and also you can check their website for shades etc.  http://www.boots.com/

Hope you enjoyed this. And leave requests and comments below pleassse :)

Tired of facial hair?

Don't you just hate it when your about to get out the house and BAM you see some hair right above your lip. It's not like someone can see it but you can. And I usually can't be asked to get out my waxing gear etc just for a little bit of hair and I don't have time. So I have found this little beauty. It actually is really tiny.

Info : This can be purchased in Superdrugs. And costs £1.99

What it is: It's a product called Silkimiz. And basically all that it is, is a tiny little rubber holder (purple support) and on top is stuck on a pink facial strip which is just a bit of gental sand paper. Perfect for our delicate skin. It is so easy to use and convenient. You can carry it in your bag and whenever you see a little stray hair you can use it to remove it. And also this little thing is so very handy to use on your face aswell as just your upper lip.

 Instructions: As like any other hair removal product, you have to start of with a clean face. No make up nothing. Then you get your suppot (purple) and add a strip (pink). Make sure to remove the packaging of the pink strip from the back before sticking it on the purple support. Then when your props ready. Gentally in circular motions rub the area. DO NOT RUB UP AND DOWN. If you find a little bit of dust appearing that is just the reuslt of exfoliation.
After you have finished rinse your face with cold water and moisturise skin.
Make sure you always change the strips when you see it has been used up.
Make sure you do not use this method of hair removal more then once a week.

And it's as simple as that. I usually only use this method when I'm in a rush. The first time I did it I got a little rash. But I realised its because I was rubbing it up and down instead of circular motions.

I hope you've enjoyed my little help. And these are all my own opinions. This was not sent to me. I purchased it myself from Superdrugs.
