My New Everyday Eye Makeup... Naked!

Good evening ladies, not long 'til the weekend!

Before I start I have to say I totally nabbed this idea from the gorgeous Laura over at Buynowbloglater... great idea, I would have never tried this otherwise! So thankyou Laura! =)

This is my new every day eye make up using the UD Naked palette.

I wear this to the office but I think it still looks dressy enough to wear out after, perfect!


Naked over the lid and 'Buck' blended into the crease and outer V.

L-R - Urban Decay Naked & Buck from the Naked palette.

I'm also wearing Maybelline Falsies - black drama.
Benefit Bad Gal liner.

I hardly reach for my Naked palette which is shame because it's gorgeous.

Do you have a staple every day eye or do you switch it up?

What's In My Bag...

Good evening ladies!

This is probably one of my favourite posts to read on other peoples blogs mainly because I'm a nosey bugger so I decided to jump on the bandwagon...

What's in my bag...

This is the bag I'm currently using.
It's from Aldo & it's called 'Gresset'
It's just a slouchy taupe every day bag that goes with everything & holds lots, as you will see!
Available here
River Island purse
Pro Plus - A MUST!
Oyster card holder
Diary
Current book - 3 in a bed (It's not a sex book haha!)
2 x 3d glasses - from Harry Potter last night
Camera case
iPhone
Keys
Deodorant
Primark sunnies
Random collection of make up
Chanel Coco Mademoiselle
Hair bands
H&M braided bracelet

It's surprising how much I carry around on a day to day basis, no wonder my bag weighs a ton!

I'd love to see what you carry around in your bag so if you've done a post like this before please leave it in the comments :]

Hot Cloth Cleansers - No.7 vs Liz Earle

Hi dolls

Hot cloth cleansers are possibly my favourite skin care product discovery this year. These are the two that I've tried so far & I thought I'd share my opinions on them.


No.7 Radiance Boosting Hot Cloth Cleanser & Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser.

No.7 Radiance Boosting Hot Cloth Cleanser:


This is my new every day skincare product.

I use it every evening to remove my make up & to cleanse my face and I love it.

At a HUGE 200ml it's double the size of the Cleanse & Polish so I don't mind using it everyday because you get so much more product. I use 1 or 2 pumps depending on how much make up I'm wearing and this is plenty, I've had this for nearly 3 weeks now and as you can see from the top picture I've hardly used any! I must admit it smells alot more artificial than the Cleanse & Polish which I'm not a fan of, thumbs down No.7!

I bought this the last time the No.7 vouchers were doing the rounds which meant I only paid £4.00 for this, LOVE! It normally costs £9.00 which I still think is very reasonable considering how much product you get but I think I'll wait until the vouchers are knocking around again & stock up!

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish:


This was the first hot cloth cleanser & infact Liz Earle product I tried and it was love at first sight (or use!)

No other product has ever made my skin feel as fresh & clean as this product. I used to use this every morning & evening but now I've discovered the No.7 version I use this every couple of days as a treat.

I hope you can see from the picture that this product is alot thicker than the No.7 version which I find makes me use much less, one pump goes a long way! Cleanse and Polish smells ALOT nicer than the No.7 product, it smells 'natural' if that makes sense?!

For £13.00 you get 100ml of product & 2 muslin cloths which I do think is very good value and there isn't that much difference if you are paying full price for the No.7 product, this is why I will only buy the No.7 product when using the vouchers.

Overall I would have to say I prefer the Liz Earle version but I would certainly recommend the No.7 cleanser for a cheaper alternative, especially when using a voucher!

One thing I would recommend is even if you are going to choose the No.7 version I would pick up some Liz Earle muslin cloths. They are a million times better quality than the one No.7 ones and I think they really make a difference.

Have you tried any hot cloth cleansers, if so what are your favourites?
