NEW IN | Impressive hair products

Uniq One

Orofluido £13.87 Uniq One £7.67

When it comes to hair products I tend to stick to the same products as I can be quite fussy when it comes to my hair. However on a few occasions my hairdresser uses something new and I just have to ask him what he's used. Normally it's when I've gone home and my hair feels extra soft or looks shiny and healthy, these two gems do just that. 

Now if there's one thing my hair is known for is being dry on occasions and very frizzy on many other occasions. Hence why I go to the hairdressers so often because my hair can be out of control and blow drying it is a nightmare. So here's the answer to all my frizzy hair problems, Orofluido hair elixir. Packed with three oils Cyperus, Argan and Linseed which all have a role to play in giving you soft tamed hair.
  • Cyperus Oil packed with fatty acids and vitamin E leaves your hair smooth
  • Argan oil to soothe dry itchy scalps 
  • Linseed to soothe and control your hair
Altogether these oils leave my hair feeling soft and looking shiny without the heavy greasy feeling I often fear I will get with a hair oil. Believe me when I say this oil is so so so light and feels oh so luxurious when applied. Fun fact this product won the 2013 hair awards best hair oil and it smells of amber and vanilla. Lush.

Leave in conditioner is one if the most important steps for me when it comes to doing my hair, Soft manageable hair is a must. This is where this coconutty smelling goodness comes in. This leave in conditioner (which can be used in wet or dry hair) is perfect for taming frizz, repairing damaged hair and heat protection to name a few. If your not into the smell of coconut this one definitely isn't for you but the smell is what first caught my attention as I kept leaving the hairdressers with amazing smelling hair! 

As they're both reasonably priced I wouldn't hesitate to repurchase either of these, they both do what they claim to do and I'm definitely impressed with the results and would recommend these to anyone with unruly hair like mine!

Serious MAC haul

MACOh boy, so this happened not all in one go I'd like to add. Simply because it makes me feel less guilty about how much I have actually spent in MAC recently. I know some people don't get the hype with MAC but I am one of those that unfortunately cannot resist, ever. I have to be honest since getting my first proper job a lot of my money has either been spent on food or makeup, after doing twelve hour shifts looking like a hot mess it feels quite nice to make more of an effort on my days off.
MAC EyeshadowsEyeshdow
First off, eye shadows ohh man my current obsession, I am constantly searching for different eye shadow looks on YouTube. It really is such a fun thing and I'm beginning to get brave and experiment slightly with my colours. I'll start off with the two crease colours I purchased, One being a MAC Pro Longwear eyeshadow mentioned by so many last year, Uninterrupted. It's the perfect crease colour described by mac as 'dark caramel' this colour goes with pretty much every skin tone. Next up Swiss chocolate, I was after a nice chocolate eye shadow for my crease, I already had Expresso but wanted something that wasn't as dark and this is perfect.

Now for the lid colours, Coppering, Mythology and Expensive pink. Mythology and Coppering are quite similar in colour (copper) but they are both such beautiful colours and so easy to wear. And well expensive pink is just a colour everyone should have. I also managed to get my hands on one of their Electric cool eye shadows 'Coil' from their 'A Novel Romance' collection I love the texture of this eye shadow and how pigmented it is but it's definitely not an everyday colour. 

I just love the texture of MAC eye shadows so easy to blend and for someone that is just getting the hang of it that is exactly what I need.  
MAC Lipsticks
Now onto something that I'm sure is everyone's guilty pleasure MAC Lipsticks are an expensive but necessary addition to my makeup collection. There's something about collecting MAC lipsticks that just make me feel good inside, I clearly need to get out more. 

On the left is Pink Plaid, a pink that is perfect for someone around my skin tone worn with the right lip liner you can really make it work. The middle lipstick So Chaud is slightly 'out there' for me it's an orange lipstick which is something I have never tried before. I'm not quite brave enough to wear it yet but I hope by summer it will be one of my faves. Oh boy the last lipstick, Mocha is beautiful! This is my favourite by far. I have to admit this purchase was made after I saw BeautyByJJ wearing it in one of her videos and I'm pretty sure I ordered it straight after. Described as a peachy brown it definitely looks better than it sounds. 
Lastly onto the random stuff, Cork lip liner nothing exciting I just needed a brown lip liner and as everyone seems to go on about Cork I thought I would give it a try. Next up my holy grail, like seriously how did I live without this? Mac Fix +, people have been going on about this for ages and I just thought what can be so great about water in a bottle. But this stuff comes in so handy. I use it to set my make up, wet my eye shadow brush to pick up more colour as well as using on my beauty blender. Excuse the dirty bottle but wherever I go it goes, I really need to invest in the travel size. 

I'm not really that big on blush, I go through phases but MAC blushes are the only ones I've actually tried. I got the colour Raizin after someone used it on me in MAC and I just had to get it. 

This time last year if you said anything to me about colour correction I would have had no idea what you were talking about. Now I realise how important it is, the most annoying thing about getting a spot for me is the scar it leaves behind. Using a peach or orange coloured concealer has really helped with coverage and correction before I apply my foundation. 

I think I'm going to be staying away from MAC for a while (she says) but I'm very happy with my new purchases.
