Blush my world - Nars - Cactus Flower

I have been needing to write a blog post about this blush for a long time but never got round to it. So here it is.

left to right - calypso coral and cactus flower
My thoughts 
I really do love this blush and have been wearing this throughout summer. Its a cream blush and is corally red shade with lots of shimmer. The texture is light compared to Bobbi Brown Calypso Coral which i think feel quite greasy when touching it however the problem goes when its applied. Cactus Flower does look scary in the pan, but once applied it gives a natural look. I think it is very complimenting on warm and cool skin tones but just be careful not to apply to much on cooler skin tones. Cactus Flower is quite pigmented but not as much compared to Calypso Coral.

Calypso Coral or Cactus Flower?
That is so hard for me to answer because I love both of these blushes. I would say go for Cactus flower if you want a subtle coral red colour. Or Calypso Coral is you want a true Coral pink shade with no shimmer. Or you could buy both, they are quite different to each other. I like to apply cream blushes with my fingers but you can apply it with a flat top brush or an angled contour blush.

Calypso Coral is priced at £19.00 and Cactus Flower at £20.50

Movie Review - Water For Elephants

Plot Summary: During the Great Depression, Jacob, a penniless and recently-orphaned veterinary school student, parlays his expertise with animals into a job with a second-rate traveling circus. He falls in love with Marlena, one of the show's star performers, but their romance is complicated by Marlena's husband, the charismatic but unbalanced circus boss. 

My Thoughts: I have to say that I wasn't really expecting much from this film it was just something to watch to pass time. But now that I have watched it,  IT IS SUCH A GOOD FILM!
I loved every minute it of it and would recommend everyone watches it. The movie stars the beautiful Reece Witherspoon and hunky Robert Pattinson. The acting in this film is very good and I love the way it was put together. Its not really a classic Romantic film and has such a good story line. Its basically about his life in the circus and forbidden love. 
 I would give this a 8/10 and is a film to watch.

NOTD - Rimmel Sky High

This has to be my favorite nail polish at the moment. It beautiful bright turquoise blue and looks so pretty on. It really compliments my skin tone in my opinion. Two coats is enough as it is not as sheer as the 17 polish. I think that you should all go out and buy it because its a must have, if you love bright colours.

What colours are you loving at the moment?

NOTD - 17 Tropical Island

So I went into boots (drugstore in England) searching for a coral nail varnish and came across this nail varnish by Boots own brand 17. Its cheap and cheerful costing only £2.99, therefore is great as a first coral varnish.

My thoughts - This is lovely orangey coral colour with gold sparkles, its looking really orange in the pictures but it is coral with a hint of orange. It looks so pretty but it is very sheer so 3 coats is needed for it to really like a proper nail varnish should. But hey what to expect for the price right? I recommend this to anyone looking for a cheap coral colour but be prepared to add a few coats. Oh and it dries quite fast.

Tag you're it

I was browsing through the blogging world and found Dinah's tag (D.G.S.Beauty) It looks really fun and I have never done a tag before so I thought I would try it. So here goes.

1)) Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lip-glosses or lose all of your palettes and eye shadows?
Palettes and eye shadows because I never really wear eyeshadow so it wouldn't really matter to me whereas I can't live without mascara and eyeliner. Some days all I will use is just Masacara but if i was going anywhere special there I probably would use eyeshadow. 

2) Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
NEVER BE ABLE TO CUT IT AGAIN! I could never chop off all of my hair, I love my hair and it makes me who I am, besides I don't think I could pull off the shaved head look lol.

3) Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek? 
Coral. I love that colour so much at the moment and Calypso Coral has to be my favorite blush. I need this colour in my life all the time.

4) If you had $1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
Probably clothes. I love clothes and because fashion changes so much, it means more shopping on clothes :) 

5) Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner or eyeliner as lipstick? 
This question made me laugh when I saw it, hmm I would probably say lipstick as eyeliner but I would have to be careful not to colour my whole eye in. I think some colours would look quite nice.

6) Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
Thats difficult, I love shopping at MAC but I have heard that Sephora is supposed to be amazing (There aren't any in england) and because its a departmental store I would have to say Sephora because then I can buy a lot more and a wider range of things.
7) Would you rather only use one eye shadow color or one lip color the rest of your life?
One lip colour

8) Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?
Well in England its basically kind of cold all year round with the suprising heat waves, so I would say Winter clothes in summer because our winters really are cold and right now even though its the middle of July it feels like October, its so dull outside and it is always raining.

9) Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?
Bright nails. I love bright colours. 

10) Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?
Eye Product. I love my vasaline :)

11) Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?  
Messy Bun, My hair will always be in a messy bun at least once a day. Its such a good way to get your hair off your face. 

12) Would you rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lip-gloss?
Never paint my nails again. I have to have lipgloss.

13) Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all? Or sharpie them in everyday?
This is such a crazy question but I would have to say sharper them in everyday and hope they look normal. I have to have eyebrows. 

14) Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?
Nail Polish, I need blush and mascara in my life.       

So there you have it. Its such a fun tag and you are all tagged! so leave a comment with a link to your tag if you decide to do it.

Blush my world - Bobbi Brown

So I have been obsessed with the colour coral this year. It's everywhere which I am happy about. I have been looking for coral blushes and came across Calypso Coral by Bobbi Brown which is a cream blush. I have to say that this is my favorite blush and I wear this nearly everyday. It's a true coral with a hint of pink. After using a cream blush I definitely prefer them over powder blush. They stay on much longer, more pigmented and they reflect the light perfectly making your cheek bones look amazing. You can also put it on your lips and put a gloss on top. I was stuck between this blush and Nars Cactus flower but as I don't have a Nars in my town I went for Calypso Coral which I am happy about but I think I might order Cactus flower online.

 Is it sad that I look forward to putting this on in the morning?
