I've been so distant from blogging recently. I'm just trying to really make the most of my summer before I head back to college in three weeks. Anyway, you probably read 'A/W picks' and thought, can we at least wait until summer is over? I love winter so much and couldn't resist putting up a little post on it before it arrives. All of the products I've chosen are literally so reasonably priced that I think I'll definitely be purchasing most of them from now to winter so expect to see some reviews hopefully! :)
I am such a big fan of really experimenting in the winter months with lipsticks. I really love going for dark vampy lips which consist of lots of dark purples and reds. Starting off with the Rimmel Lipstick, I've honestly raved on about this lipstick from the first time I heard about it. I already own two and one of them hasn't even been opened yet but I am seriously considering purchasing another.. Just to be on the safe side. ;) It is such a gorgeous matte and it never looks over the top. You can check out the post I did on it here from last year. Barry M is one of my favourite brands. I've really been loving their lipsticks as I think that they're one of the best brands to have colours for all skin types. I think this colour looks similar to MAC's 'rebel' lipstick which I also want to get my hands on. It's priced at only £4.49 which I think is so fairly priced.
Nail Polishes //
Models Own Boogie Nights
There are so many different colours I love to wear in the winter on my nails. I like to put on dark colours as my sort of theme in winter is always dark but as Christmas fast approaches too I really like to add glitter and just have my nails sparkle nicely. Firstly, I already own Khloe Had A Little Lam-Lam and I just love that it's so unique and that I've never seen a polish like it before. I think for me it's also essential to have a black nail polish to wear occasionally. I know for a fact that this Barry M one is a really big hit. It's only £2.99 which again is amazing as I really love the quality of their products. Finally, Models Own are known for their amazing glitter polishes. Having previously owned 'Disco Mix' I think it's about time I try out another glitter and 'Boogie Nights' looks like just the right one for me. I can't wait to hopefully purchase this soon.
Eye shadows //
I've seen so many good reviews on the the Color Tattoo's from Maybelline and I'm still so desperate to get my hands on some of them. I really like the Electric Blue 75 as it's quite glittery and is perfect for a night out or even christmas parties when you want to go big with your eye makeup. I'd also say the same for Black Mystery 30 but think if you were subtle enough you could incorporate it into an everyday look. I love how its an off-ish black. Lastly, I couldn't not include a classic brown. I think Improper Copper 40 could become my go-to eyeshadow. I really do love wearing brown on my eyes and this could totally be put on during the day or on a night out.
What did you think of my picks? what products are you looking forward to using in A/W?
