Love and Hate TAG..x

Okay so i know i haven't been tagged but i saw this on Mizz Worthy's blog and thought it was a really good TAG and decided to try it.
I TAG in particular:
but also anyone who has not been tagged :)

What you have to do is list one thing you love and one thing you hate for lips,face,hair,eyes and body.

MAC's Brave New Bronze lipstick from the new Style Warriors collection. I was a bit worried about trying this as i thought it wouldn't suit me because it's a brownish colour but on it looks amazing! I apply a medium layer onto moisturised lips and then apply Smashbox's Pixel over the top for a bronzed sheen.
I also love Barry M lip paints, especially the 140 shade for a subtle rosy sheen which can be applied easily on the go without a mirror.

MAC Lipglasses. I used to love their sticky consistency until i tried the Cremesheen glasses which came out earlier this year which had a smooth consistency and i realised just how sticky the lipglasses are! I have a couple of lipglasses which are just lying in my drawer half empty as i hate using them now and i won't be buying anymore. I was thinking about trying the Lustreglasses, are they smoother in consistency than the lipglasses? If anyone could comment that would be greatly appreciated.

Bronzers. I had never really tried bronzer or using a countour on my cheeks as i love my blush (maybe a bit too much when i look back in pictures lol) and i thought that bronzer would look stupid on my paler than pale face but when i saw in Superdrug that GOSH had a new Giant Sun Powder bronzer out i decided that it was great value for money and to try it. I started using it and it gave me a nice healthy glow but decided that it was okay for sunny days but was maybe a little too shimmery for everyday. The MAC Style Warriors collection could not have come at a better time as they re-promoted Solar Riche from the Neo-SciFi Collection. I had heard really good things about it and when i saw it in the store i couldn't resist it. I've been using it for a little under a week now and i love it! It gives me a perfect glow without turning me orange (tangoed!) or making me look too powdery.
I'm also loving Pink Rebel Solar Drops by MAC mixed in with my foundation for a subtle dewy look.

GOSH Velvet Touch Primer. I had alot of hype around this product and GOSH was on 3 for 2 so i decided to try it. I got it home and tried it and it felt really strange on my hands but i carried on. It didn't even last 2 hours on a cool, dry day and i broke me out. I tried returning it to the store as it had a hefty price tag considering MAC's Prep and Prime retails for about £2.50 more but they said no refunds. They didn't tell me that or have a notice up when i bought it so i felt really annoyed but owell, i just won't ever buy it again and will think twice about purchacing cosmetics from Superdrug from now on.

Catwalk Fashionista Spritz and Shine. It smells great, it doesn't leave my hair greasy and it really does make my hair shine. I used to use the GHD spray but the day after my hair would be thick with grease and smelled gross but since i've started using this my hair is in much better condition and i only have to wash my hair every 2-3 days thanks to Batiste.

Nicky Clarke Detox Salon Tong. I got this on offer £11 something from £25 in Argos to just use on the odd day when i want a bit of wave. Of corse after becoming addicted to The Hills i am longing for some Lauren Conrad curls! The first time i tried them they completely fried my hair, you could smell the burning next door! My hair smelled for a good week, even after washing but i decided to try again on a much lower setting with plently of protection spray and it didn't burn my hair but even after spraying numerous times with strong hairspray, the curls just fell out. I watched a couple of tutorials on Youtube and i tried one more time, when i got to my fringe something completely unexpected happened, the hair got completely stuck! It burnt it really bad and that was with quick action but i can still smell the burnt hair a week later. DO NOT BUY THESE! They're so terrible for your hair and i'm considering returning them.

The Victoria Jackson Harmony Eyeshadow Palette which i talked about before is amazing! The colours are so pigmented and long lasting and also very unique. There is a beautiful red based brown in it and the palette is great for throwing in your bag for makeup on the go.

Urban Decay Palettes aren't really a hate but i just don't find them easy to work with. They're too sparkly for my liking and quite chalky from my experience. The packaging is lovely, i just don't like what's inside lol.

Montagne Jeunesse Face Tonics are super cheap from Wilkonsons at 87p so every now and then i stock up. These are better than face masks as there's no mess or tingly feeling you get when they dry.

Veet Hair Removal Cream. It just doesn't work for me and i couldn't think of anything else lol.


  1. Ooo thanks for the tag!! I'll have a go tomorrow after work!! xx
