Just look at this stunning make up bag
The 2 powders are the knockout things in the palette. They are packed with pigmentation and are stunning when they hit the light.
The thing that stands out with this product is how versatile the highlighters are, you can use them as they are designed to be or use them as eyeshadows or blush or concealers or even lipgloss.
The bag!!! I just love the bag. If someone had reached inside my mind and designed my prettiest make up bag this would be it.
I hope you have enjoyed this blog post, let me know in the comments if you like this bag too. It is only available for the next 3 weeks or until stocks last so if you want one I would run and get one because I think they will sell out fast.

Now, I know that there are so many new and high end brands that get a lot of attention and so they should, but sometimes when you just want some key pieces in your makeup bag and you want them to be reliable for their performance day after day I believe Rimmel is right up there.
For me one of the best products in their range is their Stay Matte powder. I suffer from oily skin and so during the working day I have to top up my powder to stop the shine but more often than not ( unless its a mega hot day) I dont need to do that when I use the Rimmel powder when I apply my makeup first thing in the morning.
Now when you read beauty blogs and watch YouTube videos they always say not to wear black eyeliner on your waterline as it can age you. This is the look I love giving my smoky eye look real definition. But I have lately been trying a more subtle look to my eye looks using deep browns and greys to soften the shadows and have really enjoyed the more natural tones.
Last of all I wanted to talk about Rimmel's lip products. When my Nan was alive she used to wear Rimmels lipsticks a lot, especially the shades "Heather Shimmer" "Asia" and "Amethyst Shimmer" and I love their lipsticks too. I have many of them and it says how truly lovely and reliable they are when different generations of families all love to wear the same brands lip products.
A new range of lip products that they have introduced is the "Stay Matte " liquid lip colour.
And before anyone says I am being paid or reimbursed for doing this post I truly am not, they don't even know I exist I just wanted to share some love for a brand I think gets overlooked.
So next time you are in the drugstore, make sure to check out the Rimmel stand, you might just find a new staple in your makeup bag.

Over the past couple of months I have just been so busy with work and my son finishing his first year at secondary school and I will admit I have been enjoying the lovely warm weather we had a few weeks back. It was lovely just to be able to sit in the garden and read some seriously good books. I think book reviews will be coming on a regular basis to my blog.
Another thing I have become obsessed with is Disney, and yes I am a 40 year old woman but I just love anything Disney or cartoon related. I think I must be trying to relive my youth or something but I am slowly building up my DVD collection and anything else Disney related. I will say Primark have some amazing Disney things although there are so many goodies and not enough cash. Recently, one of the newspapers had a voucher for a free Cars 3 stickerbook and so I am slowly collecting all the stickers for it. I cant wait to see the film. I have a lot of Disney tops too so maybe I can do a lookbook with them.
It was lovely to go to a barbecue at my parents house this weekend and see my Sister as I hadn't seen her in a very long time, although the barbecue had to be put under an umbrella as it poured with rain. Good old British weather hey!
I have alsi been doing a lot of colouring and so will do a post with all my up to date pictures. You will also be pleased to know my makeup collection is getting smaller and so Im pleased with that.
But, its lovely to be blogging again and hopefully it will be more regularly as well. I hope all my readers are well. Please let me know how you are all doing in the comments..

Going to Jo Malone was a really lovely experience today, sometimes the staff in high end department stores can look downtheir noses at you and you end up feeling rubbish but today the assistant was lovely and made me feel really at ease and relaxed. I purchased the Wood Sage and Sea Salt edt. Their packaging in the cream and black is so classy and elegant that you can give them straight away as gifts without any extra wrapping needed.
Thn I went to Bare Minerals and purchased a matte liquid lipstick in the colour "Kissy Face". It is a beautiful blue toned pink, quite neutral. Some liquid lipsticks can feel very drying and so Im hoping this high end verdion wont do that.
Lastly I purchased a mini Tom Ford lipstick from the Men and Boys collection in the shade "Flynn". Yet again it is another neutral shade. ( Can anyone see a pattern occuring here lol?). I also own 2 other Tom Ford lipsticks in "Spanish Pink" and " Blushed Nude". Truly some of the best lipsticks I have ever tried.
Love and hugs.
