Recent Buys: Moroccanoil, Elasticizer Extreme & Naked Palette

Over the past few months I managed to buy a few beauty/hair products that I have always wanted to have, here they are:

Moroccan Oil Treatment 100ml
£21 from Buyapowa 
RRP £30.45

I have finally bought a bottle of the Moroccanoil treatment thanks to BuyaPowa. I randomly found out about this site in November and since then I have made two purchases which have saved me a good amount of money. Basically BuyaPowa reduces the price of an item by the amount of people who sign up to buy a specific item. As Moroccanoil is a popular brand the price fell from its RRP of £30.45 to £21 which was a great saving for me.

(As you can see the Moroccanoil comes with a separate pump, im not sure if I need it though)

I cant wait to try out my Moroccanoil treatment this weekend when I get my hair done, hopefully it will live up to the hype.

Philip Kingsley - Elasticizer Extreme 150ml
£18 (with a discount code) from Look Fantastic
RRP £21.70

I was sent the Philip Kingsley Moisture Extreme Shampoo & Conditioner to review about 2 years ago and after loving the effects it left on my hair I made a mental note to get the Elasticizer Extreme. Despite buying this in November I havent had the chance to use it yet but I wont let it gather dust as I intend to use it soon.

I also got a slight discount when I bought the Elasticizer Extreme from Look Fantastic as I found a random discount code online.

Urban Decay - Naked Palette
£25 from BuyaPowa
RRP £35

I think I must be the only person that didn't have the Naked Palette or swatched it since it came out. Despite having set eyes on this eyeshadow palette for over a year I never bothered to buy it as I couldn't justitfy buying it as I have a Mac palette full of natural/neutral shades. However, when this item came up on BuyaPowa in November I swear I must have been the first person to sign to buy it, I was that excited lol. It's popularity allowed me to get it for the lowest price on BuyaPowa for £25 instead of the normal price of £35 which I was chuffed about.

My Naked Palette came with a travel sized Eyeshadow Primer Potion (not pictured) as well as a Eyeshadow Brush

I must admit I have only used this palette a handful of times since buying it in November which is partly due to me forgetting I have it. I hope it doesn't become one of those products I lust after for ages and end up never using once I get my hands on them..... (Either way it was still a bargain). 

I know the Urban Decay Naked Palette 2 is out now but I have no intention on buying it as I havent even used this palette properly.

Red Lips & Faux Fur

Heys guys, this is just a quick FOTD of my make up yesterday. Sunday's are usually a very casual kinda day for me which majority of the time compromises of me chilling in my Pjs but as I had to run a few errands I decided to glam up my look a little with red lips. I still kept my clothing casual with my converse's (not pictured) and faux fur  trapper hat which has been glued to my head this winter.

Mac Select Cover Up Concealer - NC48
Mac Mineralise Skin Finish - Dark

Mac Eyeshadow - Romp
Mac Fluidline Eyeliner - Blacktrack

Mac Blush - Sweet As Cocoa

L.A Colors Lip Liner - Forever Red

At present I am looking for the perfect matte red lipstick as I feel everyone's fave lippie Ruby Woo by Mac just doesn't work with my skin tone. It looks a lot brighter on me and I have been advised to try toning it down with a dark lip liner but I cant be bothered to do that yet. Until I find the perfect matte red lippie I am loving the effect I get from just using the L.A Colors lip liner instead.

Random Wishlist

Random Wishlist
I just wanted to share a wishlist of mine (I have many things I WANT but here's the compact version that is a little more costly).

1. Macbook Pro - This has been on my wishlist for over a year but I will get it one day...
2. Mulberry Evelina Hobo - I'm in LOVE with this bag
3. Prada wallet
4. Gc watch -  I have the gold version of this watch but I've been lusting after the silver recently (even though I rarely wear silver lol)

Zara Gold Dress

My current LOVE is my new vintage gold colour dress from Zara which I got in the sale last weekend. I am actually surprised I picked it up as I dislike clothing with glitter, sparkles and sequins but something about this dress compelled me to try it on and once I did I was in love that I had to buy it. The dress fits like an oversized dress as I got it in a medium size but still has some shape to it which is what is great for me.

I haven't worn this dress yet and knowing me I probably won't wear it anytime soon as I have a tendency to do that and I sometimes find I am wearing an item of clothing for the first time a year after buying it.

Price £29.99

The picture doesn't even do this dress justice but it is made up of square gold panels some of which are darker in colour which I think makes the dress look less like a cheap sequined gold dress.

My NYE Outfit

Happy New Year guys!!! I know it's a little late but I hope you guys have had a great start to the New Year and had fun on New Years Eve x

This year I decided to keep my celebrations simple which is what I usually do on New Years Eve anyway, I'm not too big on going out to clubs especially on NYE (maybe its because i'm getting old lol).

Here's my outfit for the night which I spent with my bestie where we did A LOT of eating :)
Make Up: 
Lip Liner - Forever Red by L.A Colors
I kept my make up simple as usual but I decided to go for a red colour on my lips and used my lip liner all over my lips.
Necklace - Primark, Blouse - Asos, Faux Leather Jacket - H&M, Jeans - Primark, Wedges -Primark 

On my feet I wore my new wedges I got for a reduced price of £6 in Primark. I wasn't sure whether to buy them at first as i'm still a bit iffy when it comes to shoes from Primark but I couldn't let a price like that go. They are gorgeous and I am very happy with this buy.

Here's a pic of my bestie's outfit on the night. I LOVE her coat which comes with the fur collar attached.

Now it's time for me to finally sort out my diary for 2012.
