Facial cleansing wipes: Kleenex

I'm not really one to care about what facial wipe I use on my face, so I usually pick up whatever is cheap or on special offer. I was in MAC the other day and I was just swatching some colours on my hand and I used one of their facial wipes to remove the lipstick and I noticed the difference straight away.

With the MAC facial wipes it is wetter than its competitors which I guess makes better for removing makeup quicker, so it made me think about the types of brands I use on my face. I can't really use much as it really irritates my skin, believe it or not even Simple products irritate my skin!

So being the cheap skate that I am, regardless of facial irritation I picked up some Kleenex facial cleansing wipes (extra gentle).

The actual wipes itself feels a lot like a wet soft tissue, which I love! It doesn't irritate my skin too much and its just nice and soft to the face, it smells like cream which is bearable and removes all my makeup very well, so far so good.

Braologie: The posture experts

Hi guys,

I was lucky enough to be able to try out this new company called Braologie, through a little competition by Dao over at Mymakeupblog. Let me just say now, that I am truly grateful and thankful for that opportunity as it has been heaven sent!

Braologie is a company that is dedicated to improving the posture of women through the use of posture improving lingerie. By this, I mean it helps correct your back posture, reposition breast tissue all whilst giving you great cleavage.

The great thing about Braologie is it is done all online, in the comfort of your home. They send you a questionnaire which you have to fill in, and if you have the privilege of being in contact with Tallia, then you are in luck as she was amazing and so lovely to be in contact with - this questionnaire will ask you details about your bra size and you have to get the ol' measuring tape out to make sure everything is correct (so no lying here ladies) and you send them 3 pictures of yourself and they will send you a detailed report from professional bra fitters of your needs just from your questionnaire, how brilliant is that?! Better than Marks & Spencers, La Senza and Ann Summers combined!

When I received my report, I was a little traumatized. I wasn't used to getting feedback like that as I am very sensitive about my weight, but I'm glad I did as everything they wrote in the report was true! They sent me a bra and a little vest that sits underneath the bra to me in the post (which all arrived quite quickly) as these are the items that matched specifically to me, and I was shocked to see how beautiful the actual bra was as most shaping underwear are quite ugly and daunting, but this I feel sexy in and if I had a bf I wouldn't mind prancing around naked in front of. The bra was black with a gold-y colour under black lacing, I put it on and my boobs were finally under my chin haha. The only downside to this is no matching underwear, as I love to have my undies match my bra.

Would I recommend this product? Hell yes! I've seen the benefits for myself and I hear some of the horror stories my fellow big-breasted women have and this will definitely help relieve that issue.

Would I buy more? Definitely, as if I keep wearing the one I have to death it will surely end up in tatters.

Thanxs for reading & thank you guys at Braologie for giving me this opportunity! :)

Sleek Lipstick: Liqueur

So I recently got this new lipstick as I've been on the search for a nude lip and I've been wanting to try a high street brand for a while now and I decided to try out Sleek. It's called Liqueur and its got a pinky hue to it with a sheen finish. (Apologies for the lighting in the pictures)

haha do you like my back drop? Its kitchen towel teehee (Improvisation at its best)
I love love love it! I'm still trying to figure out how to wear it as it can be a bit much but thats the fun in applying makeup! Well that's what I love about makeup.

You can purchase this lipstick or any other colour, from the Sleek website or any superdrug store for £4.99

Abi O Shimmer Tan Boost

Heyy Guys,

So so so sorry that I have been very M.I.A lately, I have actually been very busy with moving back into  Uni and dealing with freshers week and all that malarky and good stuff. I promise I won't keep it too long till my next post, luckily I have a few things that I have been meaning to write about - so watch this space.

Recently, (meaning a couple of months ago) I was lucky enough to win a blog competition from the lovely and beautiful Annie over at EpiphannieA. The competition was in aid of TFWOC (Tans For Women of Colour) and since I didn't have the chance to go on holiday this year, why not try a bit o' tanning eh?

So this is what the bottle looks like..
