My First Sephora Haul!!

I finally caved and made an order online at Sephora, here is what I bought...






I spent just over £100 including taxes etc.. It only took 3 Days to arrive at my door, which I think is amazing considering it's from USA and I have waited 7+ Days for delivery from the UK...

What would you like me to review first?? Is it bad I've already been back on looking what I can order next!! 

Have you been tempted to put in an order?

Sunday Scents - Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh


This week I bring you Marc Jacobs Eau so Fresh, I love this perfume from the pretty bottle to the gorgeous scent, perfect for all year round, light enough for spring/summer but musky enough for autumn/winter.. Daisy eau so fresh is a bright, floral, fruity fragrance. It radiates with a sunny and sparkling energy. Playful with a whimiscal spirit, this version of the original daisy scent radiates with crisp raspberry, sensuous wild rose, and deep and warm plum. Sophisticated but not too serious, daisy eau so fresh captures the vintage flavor of marc jacobs feminine, edgy designs.

Heart notes
Wild Rose, Violet, Apple Blossom

Raspberry, Grapefruit, Pear

Base notes
Plum, Cedarwood, Musk

It's a beautiful, fresh scent.. I can smell parma violet sweets?! Just me :D I just love wearing this perfume for all occasions..Available from £24.50

Kiko Sun Lovers Blush - Copacabana Coral






When I was in Sicily earlier this month for my Brother's wedding I discovered a Kiko store in the gorgeous town of Taormina and thought it would be rude to just walk past! I popped inside and picked up three great products.. Other reviews shortly! The new Brazil collection was available, as soon as I saw the blushes I knew I wouldn't be leaving the store without owning one!!..... after a good ten minutes of swatching and a very grumpy husband.. I settled on 02 Copacabana Coral a stunning multi-toned shimmer blush, as you can see from my photos it's Beautiful! Even the packaging is beautiful it's a golden keepsake with a very convenient mirror inside.

The light, comfortable texture helps sculpt the face and outline features with a radiant, even effect. Silky touch and long lasting performance. The blush is divided into two parts: one part has a single full colour while the other half encloses a different combination of shades. Thanks to special technology, one product combines two effects obtained by blending together or using separately. One single solution many different, original finishes. Has splendid touches of light that can be recreated on the skin with patterns and creativity. 

I've only tried a couple of products from this brand as there are no store near me and like all Beauty Bloggers I NEED to swatch before purchasing, so am not keen on buying make up blind from their website..It's a lovely brand, there products are a little dearer than high street priced at £14.90 but cheaper than High end, from the products I've tried they are great quality.

Have you tried Kiko?

Tanya Burr - Picnic in the Park



I'm not really a lip product person as I can be quite fussy, I hate strongly scented, sticky, gloopy products so tend to buy quality lip products or just pop on a nice tinted lip balm. I was asked to review this Tanya Burr Lipgloss by Beautystore 4u as they have just started to stock these and the nail polishes from the range, as most of the bloggers have been raving about them, I took Beautystore4u up on their kind offer!
Ok.. Back to the lip gloss.. I chose 'Picnic in the Park' a bright creamy pink shade in the tube .. When I opened the gloss the first thing that hit me was the scent..it's a sweet sort of fruity scent, not too offensive. Once applied I did notice it tasted slightly plastic-y but not too bad.. The colour payoff is quite sheer adding just a sheen to my lips rather than a block of colour, which I quite liked as I think it is good for wearing in the daytime, however I did find it to be a little sticky. The applicator is a doe-foot that moves and bends when you press on your lips making it feel rather strange.. After about 5 minutes I felt my lips tingling, I'm not sure if it's a plumping lip gloss or even if it's supposed to do this??.

Overall it's a nice cheap brand for teenagers or lip gloss lovers to snap up! The full range has 12 shades all lovely colours to suit most skin tones, available for £6.95 on beautystore4u.co.uk
