OOTD: ASOS | Topshop | KG


It's super hot in London at the moment. We've been having such a fab summer with temperatures up to 30 degrees for nearly a whole month now. I am seriously living in baggy oversized tee's which are perfect for this weather. I've been tucking them into printed trousers and sweat pants or just wearing them with coloured jeans. Yesterday I wore a white oversized tee from ASOS with my Topshop Leigh Ankle Grazers which I turned up at the bottom with my Kurt Geiger nude pumps. 

Simple, but chic!

Meet Mr. Reiss...


To say I've been busy is an understatement! I haven't had much time to blog lately, so I thought why not share something cute?!
Meet my 14 year old, posh, diva, spoilt, full of personality dog...Reiss! This dog seriously has so much personality, I cannot explain. Spend 24 hours with this dog and you'll be shocked! He's currently going for Hydrotherapy sessions at Hainault Hydrotherapy as he suffers from arthritis in his back legs. I hope to share some blog posts with you very soon, and if you're still checking in everyday to see what's new...mwah!

Lose Your Lingerie | Rimmel 60 Seconds


I am in absolute love with this nail polish at the moment! It's gorgeous! I probably say this every summer, I'm so unfaithful to nail polishes haha. A little while ago I was obsessed with the Rimmel 60 Seconds nail polish in White Hot Love which is pure white. After I applied this, I was like woah! I don't usually wear light baby pink colours, I prefer hot pinks and avoid any type of baby, bubblegum pink like the plague. So if you hate baby pink, and hate tip-ex white nails (I love tip-ex white nails ;)) try this and no matter what skin tone you are, trust me you will fall in love with it. I am not a pastel kinda gal, but this has converted me!

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation




I was in Selfridges a couple weeks ago, randomly product shopping with no shopping list with me whatsoever (super dangerous for me) when I came across the Giorgio Armani counter. It's always quite dead in the Armani section of Selfridges which is amazing because you get served in seconds unlike *ahem* MAC. Anyways, I tried the Luminous Silk Foundation in store, and just fell in love. It's always quite hard to tell if you like a foundation within minutes of trying it on, and if it's the right colour as the lighting is way different in store to natural light. I took a risk anyway! and I had a friend with me to double-confirm this was my shade, as the last time I bought Nars Sheer Glow it was totes too dark for me.

I purchased the shade 5.5 and I am a NC35/37 in Mac and Shade 4 - Natural in Bobbi Brown if it helps at all. Now...Luminous Silk is a medium lightweight coverage foundation. it's oil free, gives a natural matte luminous finish and doesn't have any SPF in it. I actually thought it had SPF in it at first, but then I realised another Armani foundation had it, but not this one. So I deffo will purchase the SPF one next time round.

This foundation is great at covering minor imperfections and giving an even skin tone. The coverage is build able, sometimes I wear just 2 drops but if I'm going out I'll dab on a few extra pumps. It is a lightweight foundation as you don't feel cakey but it's not as lightweight as Mac Face & Body and the Bobbi Brown Skin foundation. The formula is more creamy and is not a water based foundation. Sometimes it can be misinterpreted that lightweight means watery light. 

There are 21 shades available, so there should be a match for you! The only bad thing is that the shades jump in colour, so the next shade (6) would be super dark for me and the shade below (5) would be too light for me. Bit of an odd one considering there are 21 shades, but hey Giorgio I don't care because you make ma skin look gooood! As with all non SPF foundations, this is great for flash photography! I've been using this for 2 weeks solid and it's fab, for humid days I have been mixing this with Mac Face & Body as it gives me a nice natural glow. 

If you have any questions about this foundation Tweet me @GlossaholicBlog or leave a comment below!

Rimmel Kate Lipstick - 05

 

I absolutely love the Rimmel Lasting Finish Kate Lipsticks, they’re an all-rounder for me; moisture, colour and long lasting. I recently discovered this little gem, it’s not exactly new nor old!

Shade 05 is a mid-pink colour, which is great for Olive/Asian Skin tones. It’s a wearable everyday pink shade which just gives your lips a wash of colour, so it’s not too little and definitely not too much.

If you’ve never tried the LF Kate Lipstick by Rimmel before, you must try them out! The colour range is amazing, and of course selected by Ms. Moss herself. They’re long lasting, so you won’t need to re-apply too often, the wear is ultra-comfortable and although Rimmel don’t claim this to be a moisturizing lipstick – I find it really moisturizing and creamy on the lips.
LF Kate – Shade 05
Available in Superdrug for £3.99
