Disappointing Beauty Products: Luxury Edit #3

No matter how many beauty products you try there will always be a few that end up being a bit of a disappointment, but it's even more of a disappointment when they cost a pretty penny, especially if they carry a lot of hype. So today I'm going to share a few products that just didn't work for me, you will definitely gather from this post that scents and tones play a huge part in whether a beauty product is a hit with me, so lets run through them, shall we?

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in "Carmello" & "Bellissima" £16
Now before you throw your respective laptop or phone across the room Naomi Campbell style in shock, I must state that it's the colours of these Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks, not the formula I have an issue with. They are both way too nude.  I have quite pigmented lips and they just make me look like I have the dreaded "concealer lips" which really isn't the look I'm going for! Though for the record, I do love their formulation, I wore the shade "Beso" to Taylor Swifts "Red" Tour a few years ago and still love it to this day, just make sure you pick the right shade for your skin tone.

What's In My Current Summer Makeup Bag 2016?

Well hello there beauty bloggers, long time no speak. I won't give a long spiel about why I've been absent for nearly a month, sometimes you just need a break, you know? Though I do think my family are sick and tired of my constant beauty talk, so I'm glad there are a few people out there (hopefully) who don't mind reading about my recent makeup related ramblings. I thought I would ease myself back in slowly with a little look inside my current "Summer" (I use that word loosely) makeup bag. There are a few recent acquisitions and a couple of much loved favourites, but either way it's always fun to have a nosy inside, I think a makeup bag says a lot about a woman, don't you think? So lets have a riffle through shall we, it's definitely packed to the brim...

What's In My Current Summer Makeup Bag 2016?
Can we first address quite possibly the cutest, most user friendly makeup bag in existence, the Alphabet Make Up Bag from Oliver Bonas. It's so aesthetically pleasing, grey initialed canvas, with a poppin turquoise double zip, basically me in a makeup bag. It's also self standing which gives easy access and stops your lip-liners spilling everywhere. Ok, moving on to the good stuff:

What 10 Beauty Products To Buy From Space NK?

I know from personal experience that shopping for highend beauty products can be quite intimidating, especially if you're not too familiar with certain brands. I normally tend to stay clear of beauty counters and do the majority of my beauty shopping online, after reading numerous product reviews of course. If you've followed my blog for a while you'll know I pretty much log onto Space NK on a weekly basis, to see what new products are "Hot" in the beauty world. The amount of NDulge points I've racked up over the years can certainly vouch for my spending habits, hehe. So I thought I would put together a little guide of 10 "must have" beauty products, that you can pick up in store or order online from Space NK.

One of my all time favourite bases has to be Nars Sheer Glow Foundation £31. It's just a great all round foundation that can be used to create a medium coverage, flawless satin finish for any special occasion, or become an easy to apply light, everyday staple. Coincidentally, it also happens to be the first product I ever bought from Space NK, all those many moons ago. If you fancy reading my review in full, I'll leave you the link "Nars Sheer Glow Foundation Review".
