I started off sugary, sweet and very saturated, now that I have lost all those qualities I'm left with something which starts to look a little more like me. It's a never-ending process of change.
Stick around?

Summer to Autumn Transition Outfit Ideas

Summer is pretty much over my dear friends! We've had some hot times, drunk times, fun times and plenty of others. Autumn is just around the corner and we need to greet it properly! Layers, textures, deep colours. This is the right time to dig those out of the bottom of our wardrobes! 
In this post I'll do my best to pair all of those summer essentials with autumn statement pieces, hope you'll enjoy!

 Tartan Velvet

What I love about autumn is being able to layer all of those different textures, materials and prints! This outfit is a perfect example of all of those put together, with honours to the last rays of summer sun in a form of a summer essential - denim shorts.

Mac Lipstick Wednesday #18 Ruby Woo

  Ruby Woo, can't get any more classic than that. You can't call yourself a true Mac fan if "Ruby Woo" doesn't ring the bell for you.



So let's talk RED...

 Described by the brand itself as "very matte blue-vivid red", you have an idea that Ruby Woo is as classic red as you can get. Most of the "classic" reds are blue toned, because such cool tone contrasts with the natural shade of your teeth making them look "more white".

 What you need to know about Ruby Woo is that it's REALLY matte, not as a any other Mac lipstick in a matte finish, this seems to be twice as matte as the others. I personally thing the issue of matte finishes dryness can be solved with a good lip balm and/ or a lip primer. However if you suffer with serious chapped lips perhaps this particular lipstick might not be for you , because as I've mentioned before it's more matte than the others.

 I choose to wear this matte beauty with a very flattering Hollywood style eye make-up. I went for a very lovely shade of dusty gold over the lids with just a touch of mascara and added a little bit of pearly pink on the cheeks. The centre of attention were certainly my very red lips and well defined brows.

 As I've mentioned before, this particular matte finish is more matte than the other matte lipsticks Mac produces. I think it's slightly silly as Ruby Woo is way thicker and drier I'd say than all the other Mac Matte lipsticks I own. It's certainly a good 6 hour wear, so you do get something in return for the thick formula you have to put up with!

 Are you a fan? Or do you prefer the creamier finishes?

Empties #6

Those empties go like storm, I remember writing the last one and here it is another one! I'm really having fun here!

 I'll begin with a really random one: Eye Renewal Eye Cream by some mysterious brand, because it doesn't say on the packaging who made this?! That's right. I got this from TK MAXX and I think someone ruined the box it came in, so that's probably why. I managed to find it online (yay), but I have still no idea what manufacturer makes this. Into the point! I really, really liked this! Normally eye creams dry out on me very quickly and then when I try to put my make-up on or another skincare product it sort of rolls into little balls on my face, so basically I have to get rid of all of that in order to be able to proceed with my make-up/skincare routine, and it feels like I've thrown away the product. This was different, it had very light moisturising texture, which absorbed very quickly leaving my eye area very soft and feeling moisturised.
I honestly can't remember the price http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006UY8K48

I remember years ago reading an article about Miranda Kerr's favourite skin care and she mentioned St Ives Apricot Scrub, ever since I've always had this in my bathroom. I love it, I'm using it almost everyday that's why I prefer the gentle version. Sounds crazy, I know "using scrub, everyday?! are you mad?" not at all! This scrub is packed with natural ingredients, which are gentle for your skin and leave it feeling soft, cleansed and fresh. Highly recommended for everyone, there's plenty of different types for different skin types! £4.29 http://www.boots.com/en/St-Ives-Gentle-Apricot-Facial-Scrub-150ml_1110529/

 Here we go, we're approaching my favourite hair product ever! Swear down I can see this being featured in my best of 2013. Moroccan Oil, for light hair. I can't get enough of this! It does wonders to the hair, I have never used anything like it, just after the first use you can feel the difference on your hair and you only need a tiny little bit! Just amazing! £30.45 http://www.lookfantastic.com/moroccanoil-light-treatment-100ml/10387667.html

 Soap&Glory never lets me down, by far one of my favourite DrugStore brands. This time I've used up their Body Spray called Glam a Lot. I personally use perfumes very quick, I can't really use them modestly, so body sprays are a really good option for me, especially when they smell like perfumes. Glam a lot has a very elegant, but pulled together scent (if that makes any sense). A couple of times I've been asked what perfume am I wearing, because it smells really nice.. so I guess it must be quite of a scent a lot of people enjoy, especially when it's a body spray yet you can get away with saying you're wearing a perfume. £6.50 http://www.boots.com/en/Soap-Glory-Glam-A-lot%E2%84%A2-Body-Spray-250ml_641300/

 Just to finish off I'll mention a very simple, but a must-have product in everyone's shower.. yay you've guessed it right. Shower gel! It's Palmolive's Damask Rose & Musk, not much to say smells really nice, doesn't cause any skin irritation. I'm sure I've used another bottle of this in my previous empties, I must have liked the smell probably. If you enjoy roses, give this shower gel a go. £2 http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/asda-compare-prices/bath_and_shower/palmolive_shower_gel_damask_rose_and_musk_250ml.html

 Here we are at the end of another empties blog!

Autumn/ Winter '13 Beauty Trends, Down to Earth Edition

 Today I have something quite different today! As much as I enjoy reading about new trends in beauty & fashion, most of the time I wouldn't put any of those into life. Simply, because they're are ridiculous, and only suitable for the catwalk or I just don't like them. What I'm going to do today is literally translate designer's beauty trends into what I'd call wearable, as well as giving you ideas of products I'd use to recreate the look. Inspired, not copied. Hope you'll enjoy!

 CHANEL

 Matte skin, extremely full brows and plenty of burgundy on the eyes as well as to contour (?!). Chanel's Beauty Trends in a bombshell. You all know how much I love my reds on my eyes; for that I'd recommend Mac's Sketch, Cranberry and if you want to try something softer Swiss Chocolate, which is a brown with a red undertone. Now Chanel paired burgundy eyes and cheeks together, which I think we'll all agree is something only a model on a catwalk would get away with. My pick for those sweet burgundy cheeks would be Pomegranate by Sleek. Want those gorgeous full brows? Urban Decay's Brow Box is your best shot (now in a new packaging) I'm using shade Brown Sugar. As far as matte foundations go regardless of your skin you could either use your regular foundation and then powder (Rimmel Stay Matte) or just use a powder foundation, like I did (Benefit Hello Flawless). 

 DIOR 

Photo Credits: Go RunWay 
 Here is a totally different story, Dior went BIG with glittery lips pink, berry or bronze depending on models skin tone. The best way to achieve this look would be picking a matte lip and then cover it with either loose glitter or glittery eyeliner (I've tried both and none irritated my lips). As a fan of the berry option I've picked Mac's Diva and Collection 2000 Dazzling Gel Liner in Dancing Queen. Eyes were mostly keep simple, with just a sweep of iridescent eyeshadow. Every time I think "iridescent eyeshadow" I think "Aura", "Magic" & "Illusion" those are 3 shades from The Glinda Palette by Urban Decay. 


VERSACE

Photo Credits: Go RunWay 
 Versace went for beautifully illuminated skin, which is something right up my alley. To achieve this gorgeous glowing skin I'd recommend YSL Touche Éclat foundation, or as a drugstore alternative Rimmel's Wake Me Up Foundation (which I haven't tried, but it get a lot of positive feedback in the beauty community). One of those foundations paired with The Diffused Light Powder by Hourglass, will give you the most illuminating, gorgeous skin on Earth (unfortunately as far as I'm aware Hourglass is a pioneer in the department of very fine illuminating finishing powders). Eyes were the main point of focus, or should I say eyelashes. With the eye make-up being kept into the simplest matte brown shades (you could even use your simple bronzer for this), I've decided to feature Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette as you have quite a few brown shades here. Fake eyelashes wise I would say it comes down into a personal taste, I really enjoy the Eyelure Lashes (which I haven't got  at the moment, but whenever there's a special occasion I always go for those). 

 VALENTINO

Photo Credits: Go RunWay 
 This season's Valentino's Beauty Looks are by far my favourites, and ones I apply to my everyday make-up often. Gorgeous dewy skin, pastel eyeshadows, lightly filled in brows, lash-separating mascara and natural glowing lips are the must-haves for the ultimate fresh-youthful glowing look. In order to achieve it I use Nars Sheer Glow Foundation (alternatively Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum) as a base, for beautiful pastel eyes Too Faced  Summer Eyes Palette is an obvious choice, when I'm seeking those natural defined brows I always reach for Maybelline Master Shape Brow Pencil in Soft Brown, followed by my newest addition to my mascara collection Maybelline Rocket Volum', which is fantastic for separating the lashes, finishing off with beautiful natural lips I had to pick Dior Lip Glow. 

 This complete's my interpretation of designer beauty trends. Be absolutely sure to share your opinions with me!

Mac Lipstick Wednesday #17 Lady Danger

Oh yes LADIES & gentlemen, the Danger has arrived and it's never been so beautiful before.
Today we're talking Lady Danger, a must-have statement in everyone's make-up bag. 


 Described by Mac as "Vivid Bright Coral-Red".. it was going so well until the word coral was mentioned. For all and everyone, Lady Danger has nothing to do with coral. "Vivid Bright Orange-Red" it should say, ORANGE-RED is the definition of Lady Danger. Oh Mac, invest in some glasses, will you? 
Left swatch - straight from the bullet Right swatch - smudged (same amount of product)

 Lady Danger is hell of a pigmented, bright, strong, intense and so in your face kind of lipstick! It's daring, it's loud, but it's bloody brilliant in every sense. From the fairest to the deepest, every skin tone is capable of pulling this lipstick off! If you're more of a toned down lipstick kind of girl, and you'd like to step out of your comfort zone, there's no other way to do it.. LADY DANGER is the answer! 

 A lot of people compare it to Morange, but it's certainly nowhere near being similar. Morange is your straight up orange, Lady Danger in my opinion is a hybrid between Morange and Ruby Woo. It has that perfect ration of red to orange. I've got them all and I mixed Morange and Ruby Woo together, and it was pretty similar to Lady Danger (but not the same). 

 As I've mentioned before if I had to pair a lipstick to the word "loud" I'd most certainly pick Lady Danger, and such shade deserves appropriate makeup to compliment it. Of course this would be PERFECT shade for this bold, minimal look. I however went down the different path. I choose to do this unusual eyeliner look, keeping my eyelids covered just with one base shade. What I did is create an eyeliner flick on both corner of my eyes, but not around the eyes. On the upper lash-line I've created a line from about third of my eye going outwards with a flick, and on the lower lashline I did exactly the same, but opposite. So I've created a flick on the inner corner of the eye, going outwards to about third of the eye again. This made my eyes look very elongated (both ways), which I did really like! The rest of the face I kept simple, including the brows. 


 Lady Danger is a matte finish, but hey hey don't be put off! I know a lot of people complain about matte formula being very drying on the lips, but as I've mentioned in my previous posts this can be fixed! A good lip primer (e.g. Mac Prep+Prime, Nars Lip Primer), won't just make sure your lips are soft and moisturised, but also make the lasting power of your lipstick much bigger! I also think that all the other formulas aren't nowhere near as long lasting as matte!

Maybelline Baby Lips

 That's right my fellow British beauty lovers, Maybelline's Baby Lips have finally been launched in the UK!!!
As soon as I found out I ran into Boots and got a couple. The curiosity to see whether they are as amazing as everyone across the Ocean seems to saying they are was just too unbearable. 
My face to "Baby Lips are finally available in UK". P.S I do have shorts on (just thought I'd get it out there). C.

 So here in UK we have 6 Baby Lip Balms to choose from, 3 of which have a tint of colour:
Pink Punch (pink tint),
Cherry Me (red tint),
Peach Kiss (peach/ nude tint),
Hydrate (original),
Intense Care (super moisturising),
Mint Fresh (clear mint scented balm).

 Since I'm stocked up with my EOS lip balms I didn't need any more clear balms, so I only purchased the ones with the tint: Pink Punch, Cherry Me & Peach Kiss.

 My first impressions of those is: They're really good! ...but I wouldn't jump under the lorry if they'd get discontinued. I also think the tint could be a little more intense, because those simply don't show on deeper skin tones. The whole point is a little, very natural hint of colour, and that's exactly what you get if you have fair to medium skin tone, however with deeper skin tones all you get is a glossy finish to your lips. 

 I do find those extremely moisturising, I certainly don't feel as if those last 8 hours on the lips as Maybelline claims. Also on the website there's an annotation that those Baby Lips Balms contain SPF of 20, which information doesn't seems to be appearing on the actual packaging. At the end of the day they cost only £2.99, and for the price being the quality is above the price, which is what matters really.

I'm going to give Baby Lips 6 lemon points!

 Fabulous points:
Very easy to work with, you certainly don't need a mirror to apply those,
They smell absolutely divine, very fruity and unique I'd say,
Great for school or places where you need to keep your make-up minimal,
Highly affordable,
Extremely moisturising and nourishing,
Soft and glossy formula.

 Not so great points:
As mentioned deeper skin tones will find those hints of colour fairly hard to see,
Out of the whole range there's only 3 tints to choose from, I feel like Maybelline needs to make some deep vine, orange and coral shades of Baby Lips,
The packaging feels quite cheap, and isn't really long lasting. In the past I found packagings very easy to break,
A little more pigment would do a lot of good!

 To wrap this all up I'm going to give you a little description of each of the Baby Lips Balms I've purchased:

 Cherry Me - The most popular out of the whole (tinted) range, has the deepest and most visible on the lips colour. I'd say it's a hybrid between red and pink, sort of raspberry shade. As all of them it's extremely glossy, but not shimmery. To me it smells like cherry bubble gum.

 Peach Kiss - Possibly my favourite! Colour wise, you don't get much. It has a very slight warm peachy tint to it, which comparing to the other to has a shimmer to it. The reason I love the shimmery finish is, because of beautifully it reflect the light! Scent of this balm was very hard to distinguish, I think it smells like those sour jelly sweets. I'm sure haribo or something were making these, you could get all sorts of flavours and they'd be covered in this sour crystals? Please let me know if you know what I mean! Or is it just a "90's kids" thing?

 Pink Punch - My least favourite and least natural of them all :( . The reason being is, because it isn't a nice warm pink, it's that in your face artificial baby pink. I still do like it, but out of the 3 this has to be one I enjoy the least. I feel like I'd be great for my 8 year old cousin or something, not something an adult would necessarily get away with. Just my thoughts, I do however like the smell...A LOT. Pink Punch definitely smells of peaches, I love peaches.

 I'd really love to know whether you think Baby Lips deserve the hype? Be sure to let me know in the comments section below!

Drugstore Haul

 Very promised, and very wanted Drugstore Haul is finally here! 
Most of the stuff I've purchased at once, but some parts you might have seen before. We have quite a few products to talk about, so let's go!

 I'll begin with the product that I've actually repurchased, it's the Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer. It's been very frequently called a Drugstore answer for YSL Touche Éclat for a fraction of the price. I did a full review talking about Maybelline's Dream Lumi http://clooudylemonade.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/maybelline-dream-lumi-touch.html ,and even though I think it's brilliant for the price it's certainly nowhere near as good as YSL. I go through those highlighting pens like mad, so I though I'm better of with the cheaper version for now.

 As you can see I did purchase a couple of nail varnishes as well, and I did use all of them so I can give you my first thoughts. I've purchased two models OWN varnishes in: Grape Juice and Luis Lemon. Both are absolutely beautiful colours, but the formula is awful. I've never really used a base coat and I've had no issues, so I don't know whether this is the reason of those not working as good for me. Not just that I've had to apply about 5 coats of the Neon shade to get the intensity I wanted, but with both shades I found air bubbles appearing about an hour after I've applied the varnish. I'll be sure to do a "more in depth" post about those. Now turning into my all time favourite nail varnishes Essie, I love those and seeing as no others work as well I'll better with purchasing just them. This time I picked up Aruba Blue and Fishnet Stockings. If you remember I've used those in my Birthday Week Nails, so be sure to take a look at that post if you'd like to see the colours closer: http://clooudylemonade.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/birthday-week-day-2-nails.html 

 I have stopped by Maybelline stand as you can see and besides previously mentioned highlighting pen I got a few more products. First the very popular in beauty community Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer, I love love love it! And it's a dupe for a highend under-eye concealer I raved about in the past, if you don't know what it is already watch out for a full review! 
 Of course I had to add another addition to my Color Tattoo collection, this time I went for Metallic Pomegranate, I've been obsessed with reddish eyeshadows, so this being a gorgeous rich cherry colour with gold shimmer is just perfect! 
 Another eye product I couldn't resist is Maybelline's new creation Chromatics Eyeliner, since blue is very much on trend to be applied on the lower water line I picked up Turquoise Vibe. For a lot of you that asked this is the eyeliner I wore on the "Birthday Eve" picture on my Instagram! It's absolutely gorgeous!
 Last, but not least I've trusted the hype and decided to try out The Rocket Volum' Mascara in black. There has been quite a lot of positive compliments about this mascara, and personally I can see why! I like it more than the Lacome Hypnose Star Mascara, but less than Benefit's They're Real. Definitely one of the best drugstore mascaras I've ever used. 

 SKINCARE, I ran out of couple of essentials so for the sake of this post I decided to try a few drugstore alternatives. Boots has their own all natural skin care line, from which I've picked up All Bright Refreshing Eye Roll-On, my main concern with eye creams is to be able to apply make-up on top of it and not have the eye cram rolling up together making it impossible for you to proceed with applying the make-up. As much as of a good eye cream this is, unfortunately this rolls up as all the others, so thumbs down. 
 The second product from the line I decided to try out is the All Bright Eye Soothing Eye Make Up Remover. It's an oil based make-up remover and although I wouldn't recommend it for oily skin, for normal to dry it's really good. Great price, does what it's supposed to. Like it a lot! 
 The last skin care product I didn't really need, but was dying to try out is the Neutorgena Multi-Defence Daily Moisturiser SPF 15, claiming to protect you from everything from coldness to sun and everything in-between. 

 Few last bits and pieces:
Dove Maximum Protection Antiperspirant, Pomegranate & Lemon Verbena. This claims to be much stronger than an ordinary deodorant, whether it's true I'll let you know very soon! 
 John Frieda, Frizz Ease Spray. This is supposed to be an ultimate solution for frizz, I've used this a couple of times and personally I wouldn't rate this AS HIGH. Perhaps I need to use it for slightly longer. 
 Precision Blending Sponge, local answer for Beauty Blender! I was looking for a beauty blender for a while now, but couldn't find one anywhere, until I went to good old and trusty TK MAXX. I'm aware this isn't the original Beauty Blender, but it's really AMAZING! So if there's anything better than this I'm definitely still on the hunt for it. The finish it gives is nothing like you'd ever seen before, skin looks glowing and healthy! Spoiler alert, you might see this in my August favourites! 

 Of course September's issue of Vogue was a great way to end the hard day of shopping!

Dior Addict Lip Glow


 You've seen it in my Birthday Goodies post, you've seen it in my July favourites. I'm officially in love, never have I been so intrigued and fascinated by any other lip product. It's magical, and I'm going to tell you why.

 I have been "introduced" to this product by Essie from EssieButton, and she absolutely sold it to me from that moment I knew this had to be in my make-up collection as soon as possible. Ever since this became my property I can't stop using it, for pretty much whatever make-up I'm wearing. 

 It's a lip product that is perfect for all occasions, quite literally. Quoting Dior here: "A customized color result : thanks to its Color Reviver technology, Dior Addict Lip Glow reacts directly with the unique chemistry of each woman’s lips before releasing its color ingredient."  

So basically it's the kind of product that looks different on each woman's lips, as well as it changes intensity of the colour depending on body temperature. Whenever I apply it I feel like I get the "just right" effect. That's why it always go with whatever your eye makeup.

 I feel like this product deserves the highest of rates therefore I'm going to score it with 10 lemon points!!!

 Amazing points:
The whole idea and concept of the product is so unique and innovative, I have never came across of anything like it,
Your lips, but better,
Extremely moisturising and nourishing,
Beautiful packaging,
Suitable for all ages, and all skin tones,
Enriched with fruit oils and vitamins to protect your lips,
It smells so divine, 
Very universal product, because of it colour adapting abilities it's just a great lip product to have in your handbag,
Leaves your lips glowing with this natural inner beauty,
Very long-lasting.
Picture above: BEFORE Picture below: AFTER 

Even though this product costs £22.50 I can really justify the price, and I feel like the usefulness, beauty of this lip balm really pays of! http://www.houseoffraser.co.uk/Dior+Dior+Addict+Lip+Glow+Color+Awakening+Lipbalm/123562632,default,pd.html

Mac Lipstick Wednesday #16 Rebel

 Today we're talking very sentimental, because Rebel is the first Mac lipstick I bought. Ah, good old times.
As you can imagine I have a lot of love for this particular shade, and since autumn is just around the corner this might be your shade of the upcoming season!


 As usual first thing I'm going to do is get back to you on how much Mac's descriptions of the particular shade are correct. About Rebel Mac says: "Midtonal Cream Plum", I'd say it's slightly cooler tone, although I can see the where did they came from with the "midtonal". Rebel has a slightly glossy finish, what makes it a little more to describe whether it's cooler or warmer tone, so I presume they've tried to create a shade, which would work for both cool and warm skin tones. I believe Mac succeed in this one, I can't imagine anyone not being able to pull Rebel off!


 Personally I'd say that Rebel is a cross between raspberry and plum, because it has that very strong sort of berryness to it (if that makes any sense). Besides being extremely pigmented it'll provide your lips with this absolutely stunning raspberry stain! Again, with all of those points being said I think Rebel is suitable for all skin tones, because it can be applied with finger ans sheered out for slight pop of colour of build up into the most gorgeous forest fruit shade you've ever seen! 


Left swatch: STRAIGHT FROM THE BULLET Right swatch: SMUDGED SWATCH

 Such beautiful shade deserves as beautiful eye-makeup to compliment it, never fight with it. Since my lips were super defined I wanted them to stand out, what way to make your lips stand out other than smoke out your eyes. For that I've picked up taupe'y cream eyeshadow applied it all over the lid, then with shimmery taupe shade blended it out into the crease (and a little bit above it). I've skipped the black liquid liner, instead took a brown eye kohl and worked it in into my upper lashes. Finished with one coat of black mascara. The base I've also kept to the minimal. 


I have been repurchasing "Rebel" for a good couple of years now and not a little bit have I ever been bored of this shade, it has all you're looking for in a deep berry/red. The intensity, semi-glossy finish. It's an endless, classic shade, which could be used for plenty of different looks: from bold statement lips, to sophisticated retro and everything in-between. If you're planning on building your lipstick collection and you want to start of with strong must-haves, this is definitely the one you need in your collection!


For a lovely wrap up I'm quickly going to talk about the finish of Rebel. It's a Satin finish, which is a matte formula, but it has that semi-glossy effect to it on top of that it's absolutely PACKED with pigment. As I've mentioned above, this lisptick will leave you with a great stain, so you better apply your lipstick on your lips (don't try to make them look bigger, I've learned my lesson with this when I ended up with stain not just on my lips, but around them too!). 


 Love it or hate it, Rebel is always going to be in my top 5!
