Nars Laguna

 Nars Laguna-£26

Unless you've been living under a rock for the last year or so you'll have heard of Nars' bronzer, Laguna. Its such a talked about product in the beauty blogging world! 
I'd always been intrigued by it but never quite managed to justify the price tag that comes with it. However whilst in Selfridges the other day I decided to bite the bullet and fork out to £26 price tag to see what all the fuss was about.
Safe to say I'm very glad I did! I absolutely love this bronzer! Its such a good colour for contouring as its not too brown or too orange. Its almost got a taupe-y undertone which I think is really complimentary.
Its very pigmented and there is a decent amount of product in the pan. I use this to contour with a duo fiber limited edition  Real Techniques brush, just to make sure I don't over do it and can build it up if need be.
Overall a lovely product that I can totally see the hype around!

Current Beauty Must Haves

I thought I would do a post on my current beauty must haves as there are some bit and bobs that have really become staple items in my routine recently. The things I have chosen are mostly beauty 'tools'  rather all than actual products, but each one I've been using a lot recently so thought I would share with you:)

The first one is my tangle teaser. Oh my god this thing is amazing! I put off buying one for so long as I didn't really get the hype and wasn't sure how brilliant a plastic hair brush which looks pretty similar to the ones you used to get with barbies would be. But oh how wrong I was. This detangles my hair so easily, which is impressive as its so thick and knotty. I have deffinately noticed a decrease in breakage aswell which is fab! It leaves my hair so soft and lovely, I love it!

The next item is my cosmopolitan beauty blender. I bought this cheaper alternative to the original beauty blender in tescos and its fab! I never properly got into it when I first bought it a few months back but rediscovered it a few weeks ago and it does such a fab job of blending my concealer, and it gives a really smooth flawless finish!

Next up is my Real Techniques Stippling Brush. I am a complete sucker for the Real Techniques range and own all of them apart from maybe 4? This brush is deffinately one of my favourites from the range as it applies my foundation so nicely. It gives me a really even coverage and blends it really nicely into my skin. I have also used this brush for cream Blushers before which it also works really well with.

This little baby I got in my stocking last year. It was invented by someone off of dragons den and it such a nifty little nail file! Due to the shape its so easy to achieve a lovely curved nail. I think I'd struggle going back to a regular nail file which doesn't auto automatically shape your nail. So thanks santa!

My final current beauty favourite the Some Like It Hot body exfoliator from Soap and Glory. This stuff is amazing! It leaves my skin feeling soooooo soft and it heats up as you rub it in. I love the smell of this and the whole concept of opening up the skins pores with the heat to really give your skin a good exfoliate!

I hope you enjoyed this post, as always thanks for reading :) xx

MAC Rebel

Hello there!
Today I have another MAC lipstick review for ya!
I bought this little beauty after having wanted 'Wicked' by Topshop for so long. Except unfortunately it had sold out completely by the time I came around to buying it.
Rebel is alot more purple toned whereas Wicked was more of a deep red colour, looking back I'm glad I went for Rebel if I'm honest.
I love love love the colour of this however I have to admit it took me a good 4 weeks before I actually felt brave enough to wear it.
Its really versatile as you can wear it quite sheer or build it up to give a real pop of colour, both which look lovely. 
I teamed it with a smokey eye the fist time I wore it which actually worked really well despite my fears of looking slightly like a drag queen.
This is one of the deepest colours I have in my lippy collection, but its also deffinately one of my faves!
Have you tried it? What did you think? Xx
