This morning when I woke up, I had an email from Feelunique sharing this amazing offer and it was honestly fate because yesterday I was on the Feelunique website and was so close to purchasing the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette but restricted, however when this email popped into my inbox, I think its fair to say the first thing I did was take advantage of it. So I purchased the Naked 3 palette and I brought it for £29.70 instead of £37 - what a bargain! So as I've already taken advantage of the code, I thought it would be rude not to share it on!

Let me know if you place an order & what you buy!

My Favourite Products Of 2013!

top to bottom: Max Factor Lipfinity - Luminous Petal & Max Factor Lipfinity - Glowing Sepia
Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation: Hands down this has been my favourite foundation of 2013, I've done a full review on this foundation which you can read HERE. It's so lightweight it doesn't even feel like I'm wearing foundation, once applied it leaves my skin looking refreshed and dewy but still offers medium coverage and with a some concealer it really give the illusion of a 'flawless' face.

Max Factor Lipfinity: These are definitely my favourite and most used lip product of 2013, if you're looking for a lip product which is seriously going to last you all day then look no further; when I say all-day I'm seriously not exaggerating - they do not budge, you can eat, drink and this will not budge - I sometimes even struggle to take it off! Max Factor Lipfinity's are just amazing, once applied they dry matte and would easily last all day without touch-ups. Unfortunately they don't have the largest shade range but they do offer gorgeous colours, they can be quite drying because they're so matte but once applied with a lip balm underneath I don't really have a problem with them. I love how they're double-sided too so once the matte lip colour is applied if you're not keen on a matte lip, you can apply the gloss which is on the other end! 

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette: I can honestly say this has without doubt been my most used palette of 2013, whenever I'm wearing eyeshadow 95% of the time I'm wearing the Naked 2 palette, the shades are so pigmented and they blend so effortlessly. I really have neglected all my other palettes in 2013 because of how versatile this palette is, you can create so many different eyeshadow looks just using this one palette and my love for this palette is making me want to buy the Naked 3 - which looks so beautiful!

MAC Fix+: I always find that once I've applied powder ontop of my foundation, my face instantly looks matte (which I hate!) I absolutely love dewy skin and once I spray 2-3 spritz of Fix+ it honestly gets rid of the powdery matte finish and leaves you skin look so dewy - I have a full review on this product which you can read HERE - I definitely can't see myself without this product now and I've used it everyday since purchasing it.

L'Oreal 3-in-1 Micellar Solution: I also have a full review on this which you can read HERE. This has definitely been my favourite skincare discovery of 2013 and since discovering it I have used it everyday - I am now on my 3rd bottle, it makes taking my make-up off so easy and it easily takes of all your eye-makeup effortlessly. I hate using a skincare product which makes your face feel tight once you've used but this does the opposite, it makes me feel so refreshed. I can't see myself without it now and I always have a back-up in my draw, look out in Boots/Superdrug because they normally have some kind a deal on - I picked two up for £5 which is amazing considering one is usually £4.99!

MAC Studio Finish Concealer: I can't believe it took me so long to purchase this concealer but since purchasing it I've used it everyday - some days I just wear this and love how it looks! It's so creamy so it blend so easily and cover even the darkest under-eye circle and blemishes. I do like using a lighter concealer normally for my under-eye as this is so thick and full coverage but it's perfect for blemishes and it covers them so well - I would recommend this to everyone!

Real Technique Brushes: I have just pictured some of my favourite and most used brushes but honestly the whole collection is just amazing! They make applying make-up so so easy and quick - I can honestly buff in my foundation within 30 seconds with the buffing brush, the blush brush just applies blush so easily and I love how it blend in my blush as I apply it, the stippling blush is amazing for cream blush and blending & last but definitely not least I love love love using the deluxe crease brush for my concelear, it's just the perfect size and shape so its the perfect size to get underneath your eyes etc. These brushes are so affordable for what they are and I recommend them to everyone! I will definitely be putting up a post with my favourite Real Technique brushes ASAP!

Review: MAC Fix+

"An aqua-spritz of vitamin and minerals, infused with a calm-the-skin blend of green tea, chamomile, cucumber, topped off with the fresh, natural, energizing scent of Sugi. Adds radiance, finishes makeup. Spray it on. Skin drinks it up!"

After hearing continuous good reviews about think product I finally brought, I have always resisted buying it because from just looking at it, it just looks like a bottle filled with water however it's much more than that - I'm in love! I've used it everyday since buying it and I'm so pleased I brought it.

As I have quite dry skin (especially in winter!) I find it difficult to find foundations that don't cling to my dry patches and make my skin appear drier, I personally prefer a natural and dewy finish in a foundation rather than a matte finish and I always prefer my makeup an hour or two later after I've applied it as it settles into my skin however with Fix+ I honestly don't have to worry about my dry patches or a matte face because as soon as spray it onto my face, it leaves my skin with a beautiful glow making me look refreshed and radiant - the dewiness it adds to my face is probably my favourite thing about it. This product is extremely versatile as it acts as a refresher and a setting spray. I can imagine this product being amazing in summer because when applied it's so cooling and refreshing. I would agree to an extent that it makes my makeup last longer but I can definitely notice a difference in the longevity of my makeup when I have applied it and when I haven't.

The mist is also packed with vitamins and minerals so it's good for you skin however, I haven't actually seen any improvements or differences in my skin since using it. The mist is fragranced, however the scent is light and I personally really like it, however, if you're not too keen on the scent, after spraying the mist on your face the scent seems to disappear. Less is more with this product, I find a couple of sprays on my face to be more than enough and I hold the bottle roughly 25cm away from my face and then spray, you should be careful not too spray too close as it will take more time to dry.

It is quite expensive at £14.50 (MAC's prices are rising every year - ridiculous!) however I've been using mine everyday for 2/3 months and I still have at least 70% left, so I know this bottle is going to last me a while but when I do run out, I would definitely re-purchase it. MAC Fix+ is available from MAC for £14.50 and this is for the 100ml bottle, if you're travelling and would prefer a smaller bottle or if you want to try the smaller version instead of buying the biggest bottle, a 30ml bottle is available for £8.

Wishlist #5

I love making wishlists and little notes on my phone of items that I'm lusting over and need want, as my birthday is fast approaching I thought it was appropriate to do a wishlist, I hope I've added something to your wishlist as whenever I watch/read haul videos/posts, favourites or review the products I've seen somehow make it onto my wishlist (this is why I can't save! eeep)

*click on image to enlarge*

Vera Wang Be Jeweled Perfume: oh my, I actually don't know where to start with this perfume, I first came across it in boots a couple of months ago and instantly fell in love. It's the fruitiest & sweetest perfume I've probably ever across but its not sickly sweet. The only thing that puts me off is the price tag so I'm hoping to either buy this in Jan sales or (very kindly) ask for, for my birthday - I hate buying fragrances myself as there so expensive so I love receiving them - anyone else prefer receiving fragrances rather than buying them or is it just me? haha.   

Tartan Scarf: Tartan is so in at the moment, I'm not too keen on tartan jackets, dresses etc. but I love the look of tartan scarfs and after watching Zoella's haul video, I fell in love with the Urban Outfitters one but didn't want to spend £16 on a scarf however, Primark have an extremely similar version for only £5 which I'll definitely be purchasing when I'm next in town.

Black Leather Converses High-Tops: I first saw these in Office and loved them, I've worn my last pair of converses to death and they unfortunately do not have much life in them now and they're extremely dirty - my fault for buying white converses however, I think these will be so much better than the fabric versions because the leather will be easy to clean and because they're black the dirt won't be as noticeable. Love love love!

MAC MSF - Gold Deposit: I've wanted this for absolutely ages but have just never brought it, I've tried it on before and it just gave the most beautiful golden glow to my cheeks & I love how it added to the 'dewy' skin effect & I love how versatile it is and how it can be used as a bronzer and/or a highlighter however, it's not the cheapest at £22 but I'm sure it will last me ages and that's how I'm justifying it - hehe.

Casio Gold-Plated Digital Watch: If you read my haul post I mentioned when I brought my silver mini Casio watch that I orginally planned on buying the gold version but it was out of stock and the watch fanatic inside me tells me that i neeeeed this watch but I think I'm going to restrain myself and hope it goes on sale in the Jan sales. I love how retro is it & the colour will go will everything and anything!

Statement Necklaces

Statement Necklaces have been a staple in my wardrobe since May/June, they really jazz up a simple outfit. Whether it's a simple dress, simple top once you've added a statement necklace, the whole look of the outfit changes. I'm always browsing on different websites and these are some of my favourites that I've found. 

*Click on image to enlarge* 

1) New Look - Gold and Neon Green Rope Triangle Necklace - £6.99:  The first thing that stood out to me when I saw this was the neon rope, it's great necklace if you want to add some vibrant colours into your outfit and you're adventuring out to neon colours but don't want to go for something too in your face, this necklace is great because it adds colour to your outfit and is still simple and effective.

2) Dorothy Perkins - Peach Rope Necklace - £12.50:  I love the colour of this particular one, I'd personally wear it with a formal dress or I'd even tone it down by wearing it with a simple blouse/top paired with some skinny jeans! 

3) Matalan - Fabric and Mesh Rings Necklace - £10:  Matalan have some great jewellery pieces, espically statement necklaces however I don't own any from Matalan this is just because I don't actually have a Matalan near me and I've just been reluctant to purchase them online. Out of there variety they had, this one stood out to me most, I already own a similar necklace to this from New Look but it's in teal and I've worn it too death but this colour would go with everything!

4) Miss Selfridge - Black Rope Chain - £14:  This is a piece that would go with everything you own, I love the black and gold colour combination and I could really see me getting alot of wear out of it, like the other necklaces, this one could also really spice up an ordinary outfit.

5) Accessorize - Sahara Collar - £8: I absolutely love this one, I love the beige shade against the gold, this is another piece that would go with absolutely everything and really make a different to an outfit, it's so beautiful and very elegant. 

6) Accessorize - Plaited Chain & Fabric Collar - £12: I love this, I've seen the same design on a number of different websites but this colour combination appealed to me the most, it's the most beautiful tea pink colour against gold, it's so beautiful. Accessorize have a huge variety of jewelry and their statements necklaces are gorgeous, I'd definitely recommend you have a browse on their website or pop into a store near you!
