Lancome Juicy Shaker Wonder Melon Swatch

Due to my love of the first Lancome Juicy Shaker in Vanilla Pop, I bought another one of the lovely little bottles today in Wonder Melon. The colour is bright and fun, sheer with a slight pink stain tot he lips and it smells like watermelon! What more could you want!

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Foundation, Concealer and Lipsticks; Beach Bum, Happy and Bikini

I had heard so much about the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea collection from various American makeup gurus that in the end my resolve to not order these products completely crumbled.

Unfortunately I live in the UK where you cannot get hold of Tarte so I ordered these products from Sephora and they have arrived 4 working days later! I am so beyond impressed with their shipping!

On to the products- The packaging, oh my! So lovely I honestly think this is some of the best packaging of any makeup I have bought! 

The lipsticks are gorgeous they look matte on the lips but they are creamy to apply and feel good to wear, the colour Happy is especially beautiful. The shape of the lipstick bullet is also really nice, a great shape that seems to make putting the lipstick on very easy!

The foundation I want to give more of a try before I fully critique it, its a watery foundation which seems quite light but I really need to test it fully.

The concealer is a good colour for my very light skin, the applicator is quite strange very large and stiff but I think it will work just fine.

first impressions of the products is A+ I look forward to really putting them to the test and will update at a later date!

In order from left to right Beach Bum, Happy and Bikini

Spectrum Collections Marbellous 12 Piece Set and Bag

As soon as I saw the promo pictures of Spectrum's new brush set I new straight away I had to have them. I had already bought their Glam Clam; of which I have a post about, which I adore. I knew they had great quality products and amazing customer service so I was sold.

I ordered these brushes the day they came out and due to a small glitch on the site I accidentally paid for 2 sets of postage and packaging, which as soon as I tweeted Spectrum about it was refunded to me! So big thumbs up again for their customer service.

The brushes and bag arrived a few days ago and I have been using them ever since. They are incredible soft synthetic brushes with a good variety of different densities and shapes which mean that you could quite happily have this as your only brush set to fulfill all your brush needs. They feel very well made and I have had no hairs come loose from the brushes as of yet.

The makeup bag is also stunning and I like it even more that I expected- the outer material is an easy to clean plasticy material and the inside is a silvery grey satin like material. I would have rather the inside lining been the same as the outside just for ease of cleaning but overall I really love it!

So far these brushes have been a dream to use, I have not cleaned any of them yet so I am still to see if I can get the white tipped brushes even close to white again after cleaning but hopefully this wont be too much of a problem!
