Review: Clinique Chubby Stick!

Hey Loveys!
 
How are you all? I have had a thought today, oh my its 2014, its nearly Valentines, then birthdays galore in March, then it will be Easter! Its insane how fast this year is already going! I know its what everyone says.
 
Todays review is on a present I received for Christmas from my beautiful friend. I had been talking about how I would love to try Clinique chubby sticks and was so excited when I received this! So thanks to my beautiful friend!

This is Clinique stick was what started the revolutionary lip colour balm beauties available on the highstreet! The shade I received was 15 Pudgy Peony, a soft girly pink shade that is super soft and glides on easily, it is such a pretty colour but I wouldn't say it was opaque but you can build it up, I would say it is more of a natural payoff,  if that makes sense! It is such a gorgeous pink shade that is perfect to wear all year round. It is hydrating and does last quite well and is super handy for daytime wear especially if you want just a pop of colour.

Review: MAC Dolly Mix Blusher

Hi Loveys!
 
I have done this review on a product that I first purchased years ago in London, when it came out in a collection, and to see it in the permanent line is fabulous!!
 
Dolly Mix is a bright coral pink that adds a beautiful flush of colour to the cheeks, you can add it to give a subtle look or really build it up for a striking flush of colour. The pigmentation is unreal! Its so pigmented that you don't need a lot so the blusher lasts a long time, it is a sheertone shimmer blusher, don't let the word shimmer put you off as it doesn't contain chunks of glitter in it, it has a subtle shimmer which just reflects beautifully on the skin.
 
I am seriously considering a blusher palette but not sure, what do you think? As I do like to take blushers out and with a palette that wouldn't happen would it!
 
Have you tried this blusher? What are your favourite branded blushers?

Review: MAC Pink Nouveau Lipstick

Hello Loveys,

Here is a review on a MAC lipstick that is perfect for spring summer! It is the shade Pink Nouveau which is a satin finish meaning it has a matte finish but with an added sheen and opaque coverage. This pink shade is what I would call a perfect Barbie pink, a bright girley pink that adds a pretty pastel shade to the lips, this would be perfect for the spring summer season with the pastel shades that the fashion world has unveiled for our eyes from pretty pastel pinks to blues and yellow, this lipstick would go perfectly with all those shades.

It lasts well but does need to be reapplied at least once like most lipsticks, I found it was moisturising and added a pretty pop of colour to my face, I honestly have found another MAC favourite! Not sure how many favourites I am allowed!?

Have you tried this lipstick? If so what did you think?

Topic For Discussion: You are Beautiful....no matter what they say.

Hey Loveys,
 
Todays post is one that I feel has to be said for all you ladies and gents, a post about the word beautiful.....
 
According to google search this is what is defined as beautiful,
 
beautiful
ˈbjuːtɪfʊl,-f(ə)l/
adjective
adjective: beautiful
  1. 1.
    pleasing the senses or mind aesthetically.
    "beautiful poetry"
    
    attractive, pretty, handsome, good-looking, nice-looking, pleasing, alluring, prepossessing, as pretty as a picture;


    In the media and in society we see beauty as how someone appears, what they look like, how they dress, how they apply their makeup and style their hair. Beauty is the size you are, are you a pear shape or a petite? Just look at our magazine covers and tell me what you see, what is the message they are sending our way?
     
     
    Image from Google, so here we see a photoshop picture of Katy Perry looking very thin, clear skin and shiny hair, with the left side of the cover telling us we can lose 5 pounds with a healthy detox, this is all I seem to see on so many magazines, the words "detox", "diet", "lose weight" "get flawless skin and hair", but what is flawless? why should we feel like we have to constantly do these things? Are we not just perfect the way each and everyone of us are? 

     
    Image from Google, a very thin, clear skin, no cellulite Rosie Huntington! How did that make me feel when I saw this? Crap to be honest! Then on the cover it says its the body issue, where they have "3 top fat busters", the "5 best bootcamps" and "3 diet swaps", no pressure then!
     
    The media shows us to look a certain way, what would it be like if every celebrity or model were not photoshopped to look slimmer or appear with the clearest skin? When I see those pictures or music videos of women wearing next to nothing strutting around I feel utterly crap about myself, and instantly the pressure starts....I need to lose weight, I need to have thicker longer hair, I need to wear fake lashes to look like them, I need to try and get rid of the cellulite, all these things are unrealistic as no matter what you do you will never look like a photoshopped celeb as they don't look like that either!
     
    If you want to lose weight and tone up you go for it, you can do those things and achieve whatever goals you want because you need to feel comfortable in your own skin, the only thing I would stress is don't try to be someone else, because you are unique and beautiful because you are you. To me the person within the body is more beautiful then anything, a beautiful personality shines out to show beauty on the outside, you can have a Miss World who is apparently beautiful but get to the know that person and they can be the ugliest person you know, because beauty is skin deep.
     
    Age is another factor that the media seem to hang onto, they always say "how beautiful does (insert an older celebs name) look at 50!" yes great I say but then you find out how much plastic surgery they have had and then women of a similar age feel pressured to look younger, to be wrinkle free as that is what the media shows as beautiful at that age! Its not fair, I am not against plastic surgery, if that's what you want go for it, but don't do it because you feel you need to so you look a way the media makes you feel you should look, growing older a natural way is beautiful, that's why I particularly love Gok Wan as he never tries to change how a person looks in terms of weight or how their teeth look, he uses the beauty they already have and just enhances it.
     
    Maybe I am having a rant that others will not agree with, but I honestly want you all to realise that no matter what you are beautiful! And always remember that these celebs have personal trainers, makeup artist, hairstylists and photoshop assistants on tap! Imagine how they would look without all that?
     
    What are your thoughts?
