Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick -shade 101 +swatches

Hi guys , so it saddens me to say that i'm on hold from the bright pinks and tempting reds when it comes to the lippy.I found it was making em look a lot older than I am, and though this didn't bother me too much my mum had a difference in opinion.Red has always been my favorite color  and I guess that's just what drawed me to them at the store.I think we can all agree that the revitalising reds  are the most appealing and eye catching when it comes to lippy's.And for nearly a year now , the pale ,nude and pinks have just looked way too dull for me.

However I have gone for a complete new look make-up wise , a more subtle , natural look is what I'll now be sporting as I have realised it suits me better and makes me look a suitable age.Especially since my skin is on the darker side of fair and almost brown,natural definitely works better.

After a long time lurking through the aisles of +Loreal,+Max Factor ,+Sleek,+Rimmel ,+Maybeline etc the  brand I ended up getting my lipstick from was +Rimmel. Now some of my more keen readers will know that I have used the Kate Moss collection lipsticks a lot in my time. Burt they have always been bright pink.So this subtle , pale tone of pink is definitely something new for me.It's  shade 101 ,Rosetto Rouge  and is the Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate.It's a matte lipstick which is what I wanted as I'm not too keen on glossy , shiny lips.It's not as moisturising as I would like it , in fact it is a little bit drying which is kind of disappointing.

And so here's a little swatch for you .Its looking a little on the shinier and more pinkier side in this light than in reality.So I would recommend just applying a little tester swatch when you next go to +Boots as the camera image here , really doesn't do it any justice.

So what do you think ? Team bright or Team natural ?

Caseapp personalised iphone case >UNBOXING

Hi guys , it may have been a while since I last posted but I've got so much in store for you.So as you may remember I was kindly given the opportunity by +Caseapp to review one of their funky iphone cases.
+Caseapp is a website which specialises in personalised  iphone cases and skins.They are really cute memorabilia and the collages you can make are a real nifty idea.So I figured I'd make mine for my mum and so uploaded a load of pictures of the family onto the website. This procedure helped me see how fantastic the phone case looked with pictures and text and i could rearrange, move ,tilt and all that jazz .

About a week later I received the case at my doorstep.Obviously it was how i'd expected and my mum absolutely loved it . Everyone kind of looks at it and thinks it's a really sweet idea.So it's rather unique and stands out.The case is pretty simple ,it is only a hard back case with the sides so there is a chance of damage if the phone was to fall face flat .But let's slap on a screen protector and hope for the best with her helpless butter fingers ! The quality of the printout is very good , the case is strong and heardwearing . However I did find that in  few places the case has been scratched at when placed on a  surface and I think this is probably due to the fact that there isn't any protective film on top of the case.Anyway it's not too visable.
So how does the idea sound to you ?I would thoroughly recommend buying one of these cases you can personalise yourself as it's always been said " the best gifts are , the ones homemade".If you're up for having a tweak or buy follow the link >>> * *
