What's in my bag?

Bag from Zara
After the palava of trying to do this post and get rid of those annoying photobucket boxes ruining my blog, Im beginning to think this was a bad idea.  If someone can give me some tips on posting and blog backgrounds/codes etc id be very grateful! 

Well this is my everyday bag although I don't use it for work. I really love it and for under £40 I think that's a good bargain.

And for the contents:-

River Island makeup bag, very old iPod, my new bb, various cards, charger, earphones, perfume  and various other bits
My bag doesn't really contain much at the mo, simply because it's only a week old.  I love my makeup bag as its huge and keeps my bag a bit tidier.  I am on the hunt for a new purse hence why the cards are loose.

I think I might do a What's in my makeup bag as my next post, what do you reckon?

Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturiser....the cause?

Happy Easter!

This is going to be a rushed post as I just wrote it and the stupid computer deleted it.

I have had breakouts on cheeks for the past few months, painful and ugly looking. I have tried cutting out certain brands of blushers but still to no avail.

I now think it could be my moisturiser as I use to use Clinique Dramatically Different Gel but wanted to get something cheaper. Started of with a Johnsons Cream and now been using Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturiser, again a creamy cream. Im almost convinced this is whats causing my spots as it could be clogging my pores.

I spoke to girl at Clinique who said the gel is oil free and most moisturiser contain oil and so she gave me a sample to see. Ive only started using it today so will need to give it some time.

On makeupalley there are quite a few comments about the Simple cream breaking them out however when searching on google not alot of reports on moisturiser causing spots.

Id be very grateful for some feedback on this and whether you have found that moisturisers have broken you out? x

One want....One got!

First i'll start with a product that I got yesterday after seeing Milly @ (go subscribe if you havnt, Milly does great fotd!) using it. The product is BarryM 100 lipstick. Now if I had just gone in to the shop and seen it I wouldnt have even swatched it as it looks quite scary, very brightish pink. Anyway I swatched it on my hand yesterday and thought that it didnt look as subtle as it had done on Milly. So I carried on with my shopping in town and saw the colour in the light and after id smudged it in a bit, decided I had to have the colour. I wore it out last night and again today with macs honey salve and it is the perfect baby pink. It looks gorge and id say even though when I first applied it, it did appear very nude, after a few minutes, when its had a chance to mix with the salve it actually isnt. I lurrrrrrrrrve it, thanks Milly!

On a different subject, I really really want an iphone. My dad has one now and so does my aunty, and then saw my friends at dancing last week and she had one too. Id like it in the white as everyone has the black. I currently have the blackberry curve which I do love but it looks so dated especially the screen. I want to be able to watch youtube etc on my phone. However iphones on orange are so expensive as are the tariffs. I have been with Orange for ages and happy with them so do not want to swap to the other two networks currently selling iphones. My dad has his on a business contract and pays less than £10, yes £10 for all inclusive mins, texts and data. Ive been begging him to add me on but so far its a NO! So id like some feedback, on what contract you are on and who with as not sure what to do and also how you like or dislike the iphone?? x

My VILE Skin

Yes, exactly what the title says. I am so fed up with the state of my skin at the moment i feel like given myself a chemical peel! Ive been told I have good skin but clearly these people are blind. At the moment im having constant break outs on my cheeks, no idea why and also have extremely patchy skin, so it doesnt matter what I use to cover my face, you can guarantee within a few hours if you look at it closely in a mirror who will see all the dry patches and all my makeup has turned cakey. I cover my blemishes with concealer and then when I put my mineral foundation and bronzer on it just sticks to wherever ive put concealer, only highlighting the blemishes. I moisturise my face everyday and have tried various different moisturisers. Im almost crying writing this, I love wearing make up and now all its doing is excentuating (not sure how to spell that) my flaws. Whats the point in doing my eyes and lips nice if my skin looks like absolute ****! Someone please advise me? I am going to go to the doctors and they will have to give me something for it.

Update on Mineralize Skinfinish

So I settled for Medium Dark in the mineralize skinfinish natural in the end. Today however I am not loving this product, i looked in the mirror at lunch and my face looks really cakey with pink undertones, absolutely yuk. Im not a happy bunny as I have spent £18 on this product. I will have to put it in a blog sale me thinks. Unfortunately I do not have paypal so unsure how I would work this.

If anyone does fancy this product, swiped a couple of times, only bought on Saturday :(

Just A Couple of Things....

So I made it to the Bull Ring in Birmingham yesterday to pick up a mineralize skinfinish natural and the select cover-up concealer. I decided in the medium dark shade in the powder as I already had medium plus. I really like the colour but definately gets darker throughout the day... Does anyone know if the shade in medium is darker or lighter than the medium plus? When i emailed an artist they said medium was darker than the medium plus, which isnt logical really.

I couldnt really decide on the concealer. The nc30 in this concealer looked more muddy/brown as opposed to the nc30 in the studio finish concealer which looks more golden...anyone agree? I felt the nc23 the next lightest shade in the select cover was maybe a tad too light. She put them both on me and to be honest the light in selfridges is rubbish and they both looked very similar on the skin. However on my hand in daylight, nc30 too dark and nc23 too light!! Help!!

Just wondering if anyone got the mac graphic garden brush sets, i really want the makeup bag they came in and wondered if anyone has it and doesnt want it and would be prepared to sell it to me??

Finally just a few youtube ladies you should def check out, "lette76" and "lexxielove", there videos are fab! x

MAC MSF Natural...

So im planning to get another msf natural, im really debating between the medium dark and the medium deep. I want to use it all over after ive done my foundation. How sheer are these? Do you girls use them all over your face or just around the cheek area?? I have got the medium plus one and was wondering how that colour compares with the medium dark and then the medium deep? Your thoughts would be a great help? x
