National Television Awards 2014

WARNING this blog post does include some very poor iPhone 5 quality photos!

On the 22nd of January I was able to attend the National Television Awards in the O2 arena, London. 

The stage!

What I wore

My head has been cropped as apparently I can't take a serious photograph

Shoes - South (can only find the glitter version online, mine were suede).

My make- up

The only photograph i took where you can see my makeup close up. My eye brows are no where near as thick as they look on this picture by the way! It must be the lighting 

Close up of the lipstick, it's a beautiful super deep purple.

Best Dressed

Georgia May Foote
Abbey Clancy
Jacqueline Jossa 
Michelle Keegan
Katie McGlynn

The more questionable outfit choices 

Rachel Wilde
Catherine Tyldesley 
Jennifer Metcalfe 

My favourite thing about award season is looking at all the style choices the celebrities make, I know it's naughty to judge but you just can't help it! All the celebrities made an effort, just some did it better than others in my opinion. Who wore you favourite outfit?

Any questions about the National Television Awards? 
Did you agree with all the winners?
Any highlights? (if you watched it of course)

Lasting Finish by Kate Moss - My Top 3

Hello there! 

As most people would have realised by now Rimmel is one of the leading Drug store brands, the products are highly pigmentation and of great quality. For a while now Kate Moss has had her own lipstick line, Lasting Finish, they are all incredible. Right?

I have tried and tested most of this range and have managed to narrow it down to my top 3!

Okay so at number 3 is.... 

This is shade 20! A beautiful vibrant pink which I wore to death throughout the poor British Summer.

At number 2 is....

Shade 03! This is the most perfect nude! I wear this on those days wear I either have a heavy eye make-up or I am simply having a lazy day. 

And the WINNER is....

Shade 107 - Wine! The singly most beautiful deep matte red I have ever laid my eyes on! This lipstick does not move from my lips at all throughout the day ( touching up only after eating ) it is so so flattering and I am nearly out which is sad!

I recommend the Kate Moss Lasting Finish lipsticks to everyone out there, they retail at £5.49 which is a barging for the quality!

I would also like to say that yes these are not new lipsticks and they have been on the market for quite a while but I just can't resit giving them a cheeky shout out!

Have you tried these lipsticks before? What was your favourite shade?

2014 Product Wish List

Hello there beautiful people, I hope you have all had an amazing Christmas and New Year! 

My Yes I'm a massive poser face!

Everyone is doing there 2013 favourites and this is something similar, EXCEPT these are things which I wish to try in 2014!

I have listed the 5 products which I am desperate to try in the new year, if you have tried any of the following products can you please leave your personal opinions below. Also tell me which products you are desperate to try, you never know they might be one of my favourites, lets help each other out. 

So first up is...

Urban Decay Naked 3 Pallet, I have never had a Naked pallet before - Shock horror - and I really want to try there newest edition to the range. There are 12 beautiful matte, pearl and metallic shades within the pallet and I have also heard amazing things about the pigmentation and staying power! 

Emma Hardy Morniga Cleansing Balm, this is a beauty favourite but I have never been able to bring myself to purchase this. I have heard and read many bloggers and vloggers rave about this cleansing balm and I am yet to try any!

Benefit Hoola Bronzing Powder, the UK's best selling bronzer has yet to become a member of my ever growing make-up collection. This is a matte bronzer so perfect for contouring and giving that year round tanned look!

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, I was going to buy this as my self gifted Christmas present but I bought a lot of other things instead and simply could not afford this :( Once my MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation has finished this foundation is next!

Bioderma Sensibio H2O - Micelle Solution , this was quite difficult to buy if you live in the UK during early 2013 but it has finally been stocked in the UK and I am super excited to try this product. Little heads up though if you visit you can currently buy the 500ml bottle for £11.60 until the 12th January! They will also deliver this to you for as little as £1.95 within the next 2 working days!

I am super dooper excited to try these products, have you tried any of them before? Did you like them, or were you disappointed? Any other suggestions for products I should try in 2014? I'm feeling adventurous!
