MUA Matte Eyeshadow Palette Review.

Hello and a good evening to you.
I was very excited about the release of this palette. A ten-pan eyeshadow palette all dressed up in shades of neutral, and mine for a mere £4. Like I say. Very Excited.

Soap & Glory Kick-Ass Pressed Powder Review.

And you thought you'd seen the last of my Soap & Glory powder reviews? You thought wrong. After the success I had with One Heck of a Blot there was no way I was going to let this pass me by.

Bits & Bobs #002

Hello again!
The week since my last Bits & Bobs post has been one of the longest of my life, but not in a bad way at all!

Body Shop Shopping.

2 weeks ago, I accidentally went to the Body Shop. Then, last week, I accidentally went again. Come one, they had promotions left, right and centre and I had a £5 Birthday gift to claim and a £10 off a £25 spend voucher that was just itching to be used. I feel no shame.

September Favourites.

This months favourites are not so much things I bought as things I rediscovered. I have been packing things up for uni and these, among other things, made the cut for my 'taking-but-not-packed-away' stash.

Bits & Bobs #001

Hello there!
I decided I wanted to have a more chit-chatty, casual post with less of a structure that will allow me to update if I want and just to talk to you! Therefore I am titling this post Bits & Bobs and by numbering it I feel more fancy. Is anyone else like this? Numbering things makes me feel accomplished. I really am quite peculiar.

MUA Undress Me Too FOTD.

It's been ages since I showed you lot my face so I thought I would post a look with the MUA Undress Me Too palette, aka a cheap as chips dupe for the Naked 2 palette. This look is nothing too special but the kind of thing I'd use on a day to day basis.

Soap & Glory 'Glow All Out' review.

Hello and happy July.
Sorry posting has been sporadic recently but it's a trend that's set to continue as I have a lot on in the next six weeks or so. I am trying to schedule posts but am not at home this week so can't really take photographs - hence the lack of June Favourites, which may or may not appear next week, I'll decide if it's worth it.

That aside, I have for you another Soap & Glory powder review. I showed you the 'One Heck of a Blot' a few days ago and today I am talking to you about their 'Glow All Out' highlighter.

Maybelline Dream Touch Blush Review.

Hello there!
I have recently been really into Maybelline and, among other things, picked up this cream blush. I have also been into my cream products and am a blush obsessive so it was going to be mine sooner or later.

Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot review.

I bought this (along with two other Soap & Glory powders) a few weeks ago and am really enjoying using them all so guess what? You're getting some reviews!

Bourjois Bronzing Primer Review.

A little while ago I bought the new Bourjois Bronzing Primer out of curiosity and have fallen in love. I thought it only fair to share my new found love with you, so here it is!

Review: The Apothecary Sugar scrub.

Hello there.
The sun came out last week so in uncontrollable excitement and with the prospect of actual skin on show to the actual public, I decided I needed me some body scrub. I was after a sugar scrub in particular and, wanting to keep things cheap, I headed for the ever-glorious TKMaxx.

Review: Rimmel Scandaleyes Eye Shadow Sticks.

Body Shop Bits: A Haul.

I have been lured in by the Body Shop's promotions and member discounts... I've been meaning to get a Love Your Body card for ages but you know how it is, there is always something else to spend £5 on...

Maybelline Super Stay 7 Days 'Surreal'.

I have a couple of these Maybelline Super Stay 7 Day nail polishes and when I was in Boots the other day, this one really caught my eye.

MUA Lolly & Bon Bon Review & Swatches.

I recently picked up two of the new MUA powder blushes and thought I would share them with you today.

MUA Trio Eyeshadows Review & Swatches.

I thought I would review one of my favourite products from MUA, their baked eyehsadow trios. We all know and love their palettes but a trio is much more travel-friendly and I like them for days I don't want to think about which eyeshadows go together.

Friday, 7 June 2013

ELF Baked Blush Review & Swatches.

A little while ago I ordered some things from ELF, nearly completely blushes. I'm not called Blush or Nothing for no reason! In my mini ELF haul I ordered this baked blush which I thought would be a nice highlight. It is.

Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner Review & Swatch.

I have had this eyeliner for a long while and really do love it so thought I would review it for you today.

Natural Collection Cream Blush Review & Swatches.

I've another review today, and it's not only another blush, but another cream blush. I bought this a while ago but have only just got around to reviewing it - bad blogger!

MUA Power Pout in Rendezvous Review & Swatches.

I have another review for you today, this time though it is a lip product. I am a little lazy with lip products hence you rarely see them in FOTD's or Favourites posts unless they are lip balms, but MUA swayed me with their nude chubby stick-alike.

FOTD on a Budget.

Hello there!
I have an FOTD for you today and, although nearly everything I own is budget, this one is especially budget friendly.

 Shocking picture. I do apologise. 

Max factor 3 in 1 foundation - Light Ivory 40 (review here)
Collection Lasting Perfection concealer - Fair 1
ELF Tone Correcting Powder - Cool
Natural Collection Blush - Sweet Cheeks
ELF Blush (as highlight) - Gotta Glow
Maybelline Colour Tattoo - Metallic Pomegranate 
MUA eyeshadow palette - Heaven & Earth
Revlon Matte Eyeshadow - Vintage Lace
Seventeen Doll'd up Mascara - Black (review here)
MUA eyeshadow (brows) - Shade 19
MUA Power Pout - Rendezvous

The most expensive thing here is the foundation at around £12 but most drugstore foundations are pricey and I am very much in love with it.


I really liked this look, warm toned metallic browns on my eyes make me happy and I feel like the lips and cheeks complemented the eyes without overpowering it. Obviously the brows were nice and bold, technically they are too dark for my face but I like them. I feel as though a bold brow lets me get away with bolder eyes.

As for the eyes, I layered the top right MUA eyeshadow over the Colour Tattoo and blended it all out, with a couple of the darker shades in the crease (lightly!), along the lash line and under the eye. I also hit the inner corner with the shiniest shade in the palette, the 3rd on the left on the bottom row. Catchy name.

What do you think of this look? Do you want to see more FOTD's?

May Favourites.

I cannot believe it is the end of May. Not only us the year flying by at hyper-speed, but this means my exams, the culmination of fourteen years of education, are over in 11 days. I am more than a little terrified, but in the mean time I will ramble about my favourite beauty things.

An ode to Poundland ft. Revlon Nail polish review & swatches.

I was out an about in town the other day and popped into Poundland for my Haribo fix (we all need them, don't lie), and naturally I took a wander down the beauty aisle and happened upon these two gems.

MUA Cream Blush review.

Hello :)
Sorry for my absence, but so much was happening last week that the blog had to take a back seat.


Anyhow, I am back with a review today. I bought this MUA Cream Blush a few weeks ago and thought it would only be fitting to share it with you as my blog is named Blush or Nothing.

Maybelline Colour Tattoo Review & Swatches - Permanent Taupe & Pink Gold

Hello :)
I have another review today, this time of Maybelline's Colour Tattoo 24 hour gel-cream eyeshadows in 65 Pink Gold and 40 Permanent Taupe

I bought these a couple of weeks ago and have been wearing them non-stop so I thought it was only fair to share them with you! I thus far only have two shades but love them and plan to get more - perhaps On and On Bronze or Eternal Gold. Or perhaps both. Let's be honest, probably both.

I can't stop shopping! Makeup Haul & Swatches.

Well hello there!
I have a spending habit. I can't bloody stop shopping! It's all the tempting offers, they lure me in and before I know it I've dropped another £10 on makeup. But it's so pretty! I would like to stress that this was not bought in one go but over a few weeks. I am not that crazy.

Life thoughts.

Hello everyone. It's been a while.
This is going to be a rambly one, no editing, no nothing and for that I can only apologise. But I need to get some stuff out and this seemed the place to do it. You don't have to read this, it's hard beauty related but not everything in life is. Obviously. I feel like I deal so much with the superficial on here and that at times like this when I have no brain space for that sphere of things, this blog gets neglected. So here we go.

17 Doll'd Up Mascara Review

I have a review for you today, of the relatively new mascara by 17: Doll'd up. This is available from Boots and costs £6.29 here - and is currently on a cheeky 3-for-2. I bought the shade Black but there is also a Brown/Black. I was in need of a new mascara because my L'Oreal Volume Million had started to dry up but I wasn't in love with it enough to repurchase and had a voucher for some money off this one so thought I would give it a go.

Dainty Doll Blush Haul & Swatches

Hello :)
I, like many others, took advantage of the crazy low Dainty Doll prices over at Fragrance Direct. Dainty Doll, as I'm sure you will know, is Nicola Roberts' makeup line. This time I stuck to blushes only (my addiction is growing) but I might go back and order some more pretty soon...
