My top 5 Products ATM

Just a little blog post showing my top five products at the moment and why (:

Starting with my favourite :

1 Maybelline 24hr SuperStay Foundation

This foundation retails around £8.99 but is currently on offer at Boots stores in their 3 for 2 across the whole Maybelline range! I don't wear this foundation on it's own as the shade I usually use 'fawn' is a little darker with this foundation than it is in the other Maybelline products. To solve this product I mix SuperStay Silky foundation with this to give the shade I want. So I would advise if you are a regular Maybelline shopper go one shade lighter with this foundation unless you want to mix.
2. Maybelline 'The Falsies' mascara

I absolutely ADORE this mascara. It gives a great false lash effect shape to the lashes and a great boost of volume. The curved brush applicator is easy to use and perfect for bottom lashes. The colour of this mascara is a deep black which I love. I think it also comes in a brown shade, but don't hold me to that!

3. Rimmel Royal Gloss- 161 Delicious

All I can say is YUM! This lipgloss smells and tastes delicious.. It's smooth so no sticky lips and it glides on perfectly I would definately recommend this for a light glossy sheen to the lips. I am wearing Royal Jelly - 161 - Delicious in the picture. These glosses retail around £3.99
4. Barry M Dazzle Dusts

I love Barry M's Dazzle Dusts, maybe because they are so versatile and you can get many looks from just a few pots. Also I think the value is amazing £4.50, although the pot is very small that will last you for aggeees! Now moving onto my favourite colours, I've got to say I do love the pinks and silvers Barry M do in this range. What I'm wearing above is Pale Silver, Shocking Pink and Iced Pink. All these shades can be mixed and matched with other shades I have in my collection so the number of looks you can create is wonderful! Hopefully I will be starting a Youtube account soon with a few tutorials if I get a bigger following.

Thanks for reading lovelies

We all HATE waiting for payday don't we?! I've been having a little, okay maybe quite large browse on the web at products and clothing I want...below is my wishlist :

Paul's Boutique Flower Twister Bag - £60.00

I've been wanting a Pauls Boutique bag for quite a while now. I have my heart set one one of their new Barbie bags and Roxanne bags. But my budget isn't quite stretching this far this month :( So this lovely little floral one will be my starter Pauls Boutique bag. I think it will go with many items and I would love to team it up with a little playsuit and some flowery bangles. This little beauty is from asos.com.

Benefit Confessions of a Concealaholic- £28.50

This kit contains:

''that gal'' face primer

Bo-ing shades 01 AND 02 - great for mixing to create your own personal shade!

Lemon Aid eyelid primer- this also takes out redness with its yellow shade to give eyes that fresh look!

Eye Bright instant eye brightener

and a step by step guide for makeup beginners

Denim Jacket- £39.99
This lovely light wash jacket is from River Island I'd love to team this up with a floaty dress and gladiators. Perfect for a summer bbq!
GRAND TOTAL- £128.49
For three products- worth it? or not?

Big Fake mascara

When I saw Collection 2000 mascara in my local Boots at a price of £4.99 with a free waterproof liquid eyeliner I thought I may as well give it a try. Now I'm not usually a fan of the 'lower end' makeup brands but at this price it was worth a try.
First up the mascara claims:
"va va voom to lashes without the fuss of false lashes...double your lash length in one fell swoop"
My Verdict:
The brush- I found the actual brush applicator was too large for my liking this made it a little tricky to apply the mascara and not as prescise. Also it was a struggle to apply mascara on the bottom lashes.
The colour- The colour I went for was black, it was a dark black and did cover the lashes perfectly.
Length and Volume- I applied two coats of this mascara and I felt like I needed more although I think more coats would have a very heavy effect on the eyes. I topped up with my usual mascara and don't feel I had anymore length/volume than I usually do.
Overall: I wouldn't repurchase this product for the simple fact that it doesn't do what it says on the tin. And I DON'T like that!

C.L.P Makeup- First post!

This is my first post (eek!) First on the list is abit about me :

^^^ That's meee. I'm 16 years old from England. I'm currently at college studying my A Levels: health and social, english language and law. I'm hopefully going to progress onto university to do law.

I'm not a professional makeup artist and makeup is just a hobbie and strong passion of mine. There will be product raves, reviews and just general beauty chit-chat (:
