Get the A/W 11 Style with 17

No 17 have a gorgeous new autumn/ winter collection which includes the following:

The nail polishes come in Fury, Revenge and Sulk £2.99 each for 8ml. The colours are beautiful and apply really well, and of course are on trend so a great addition to your collection. My favourite has to be revenge which is a lovely plum colour. It is very wearable.

The eyeshadows are available in Enraged, Vengence and Broken Hearted each priced at £5.49 making them very inexpensive. I have to say I love all the eyeshadows but my favourite has to be Vengeance, i think this is the trio I will get the most use out of. The trios are very shimmery but don't have big chunks of glitter so I found them really easy to use.

What will you pick up from this collection ?

Remember those big tubs of sudocream.. well now Sudocream comes in handbag sized tubes. They're so easy to carry around in your handbag or look nice sitting on your dressing table. I have used sudocream for as long as I can remember as it has so many uses from dry skin to clearing up your spots.

The formula of the sudocream in the new squeezy tube seems to be a little lighter and less greasy than the original tubs of sudocream but personally I think this is great as it sinks into your skin alot better making the cream less visible but working just as effectively. I much prefer the new packaging in the squeeky tube its less messy and more sanitary as you are not having to put your fingers into the tub.

Are you a fan of Sudocream ? have you tried the new Sudocream yet ?

Also if you check out Sudocream's Facebook page they have an amazing Bagology App!

Natural Collection Tinted Moisturiser

Well I have finally got my blogging mojo back and will hopefully be doing some regular posts again. I have seen the Natural Collection Tinted moisturiser popping up on quite a few blogs recently which has surprised me as I bought this a while ago and hated it !
A few of the reviews I have read quite like it for the £1.99 price tag.

I found the product to be too dark for me even thought I bought it in the lightest shade(porcelain). I didn't like how the product sat on my skin as it didn't seem to sink into the skin but sat on top looking mask like. On areas of my skin that are dry it was quite moisturising. I did try this product around the house for the day and found that it began to melt off my face after around 2hrs and for me I need something longer lasting.

Overall I think if you can get a shade to match your skin tone then maybe this tinted moisturiser could work for you. At £1.99 it is worth trying but swatch in store before you buy!

Has anyone tried any tinted moisturisers that last well and come in lighter shades? Have you tried the Elf tinted moisturiser what did you think?

Well while looking through recent blog posts I came across "A Makeup Lovers" blog and found her post to be really interesting and informative. She has included a picture of the face with the different areas and why you may get spots there. You can find the post here
