High end makeup and perfume haul

 
 
Yesterday I went out shopping with my Mam and I ended up getting a few high end makeup items. I rarely buy high end items unless I really want them and have done research into the products. Estee Lauder in Debenhams has an offer on where if you buy 2 products (one has to be foundation) you get a free gift. Also Estee Lauder currently has 10% off products. For the Dior samples the lady on the Dior gave me them.
 
Estee Lauder Illuminating perfecting primer
30ml
Idea for dry/normal/combination skin.
Adds instant brightness and radiance
Minimize the look of pores
Hydrates the skin
Estee Lauder Double wear foundation
1N2 ECRU
30ml
This is my holy grail foundation. I have a review of the foundation here.
Estee Lauder Double wear foundation
2C2 Pale Almond
30ml
I got this as my skin tone tends to change around the spring/summer.
This shade will be ideal to mix with other foundations.
Estee Lauder Pure colour envy
220 Pierced Petal
7ml
Liquid lip potion
This product reminds me of the YSL Glossy Stains (even though the EL is matte)
I got this in the pink shade as it will be ideal for the spring/summer
Urban Decay High colour lip gloss
Punch Drunk
24ml
This colour is vibrant and will be perfect for the summer
Makes lips look fuller
Bare Minerals bare skin

I am really pale and this shade matches me fine. The lady on the counter tested it on me to make sure.
I have never tried Bare Minerals before. I have swatched eyeshadow/lipgloss but that's it.
I have wanted to try this product for a while because of its claims.

Everything 5 pounds lookbook

Everything 5 pounds is an online retailer that sell clothes, shoes, jackets etc all for £5. There are so many choices on the website to pick from. I was given the opportunity to pick 9 items from the website to feature on my blog. With that I've decided to create a lookbook of all of the clothes. I am really happy with them all and ideal to dress either up or down. I decided to pick 7 dresses as they are mainly what I wear and are really versatile. Shoe wise I went with a classic black pair of heels and a black wedge.
For Reference I am 5ft 4 so the length of the dresses will differ on you depending on your height. All the dresses that I ordered are a size 8. All of the dresses are true to size and accurate. Same with the shoes they are true to size.
All the clothes in this post should still be available to buy online. The clothes on Everything 5 pounds tend to go out of stock quickly.
3/4 Sleeve Textured Dress This is one of my favourite dresses that I picked as I love the colour, s…

Max Factor: Smooth Miracle Primer and Miracle foundation review

I was kindly sent these products to review
Max Factor is such an iconic brand that has been around for years. I can remember Nana using it and even my Mam. When I got the chance to try out some Max Factor makeup I was really happy (infact I screamed inside) When I opened the package I was really happy with what was inside. The Smooth Miracle Primer and Miracle Touch Foundation. Both products claim to smooth the skin textures. Also, these products are advertised on TV and the models skin looks flawless. Anything that claims to make your skin look flawless and smooth I will try. As you all know I love a flawless, smooth and full coverage base.
Smooth Miracle Primer I 'secretly' hoped that this would have been one of the products in the package, as I really wanted to try it out. So when I saw this product I was thrilled. The bottom picture above is the primer using a small pump and on the right (which you can't see) it is blended out. I applied the primer all over my face and I…
