Laguna Green | fotd

Hi guys,

I've had a Coastal Scents eye shadow sample for well over a year and a half now and have never used it! It has a gorgeous green shade called Laguna Green (hence the title of this post!) so I decided to create a look with it.

I used Coastal Scents Laguna Green on the inner section of my eyelid. Soap and Glory Wild Blue on the middle section and Coastal Scents Indigo on the outer section. I used Soap and Glory Minky in my crease and to darken and add definition to the outer crease I used the shade Siesta from the Sleek Del Mar Volume II palette.

Blues and greens tend to be hard colours to make work for everyday wear. I think this look is ok for everyday wear because the colours aren't super bright and I think the beige/brown crease keeps it from looking over the top - if that makes sense!

Let me know if you ever wear blue/green eye shadow!

Mother's Day Gift Guide ♥

Hi guys,

Mother's Day is just around the corner (6th March for those of you that didn't know!) so I thought I'd put together a quick little gift guide.

The things I mention below are things that I'd buy/have bought for my own mum. Obviously, not all mums are the same but maybe this might help if you're stuck for gift ideas! This may also help for gift ideas for Aunts/Nans/friends etc!

You can never go wrong with buying flowers as a gift. They are so pretty and fresh! Most (pretty much all) florists/shops sell special Mother's Day bouquets, like here.

Perfume is another good gift idea, as long as you know what perfume they actually like! Luckily for me I know what my mum likes - but if you are unsure you can play it safe and get them a perfume by their favourite celebrity. They aren't as expensive as other perfumes, so if they don't like it it's not a lot of money wasted, and they'll most probably like the fact that you know who their favourite celeb is! Some celebrity perfumes can be found here.

For the last couple of Mother's Days I've bought my mum either a bag or a purse from River Island. I know which bags my mum likes, and if she's already bought a new bag I'll get her the matching purse! My mum (and I) love River Island bags but they can be so expensive, especially if you want to feel fancy and get the matching purse! So I tend to get her either one of those. Like here, the matching bag and purse.

Jewellery is also a good gift. A girl can never have too much jewellery! You can get cute little bracelets, necklaces, rings, earrings - so much choice! Like this lovely bracelet.

If you are absolutely stuck for gift ideas then you can never go wrong with a good old gift voucher! You could get a voucher for their favourite shop, or if you are unsure of which shop you could get a voucher for shops that sell a variety of things, like Boots or Debenhams.

I hope this post helped you if you're stuck for gift ideas! Like I said, these are gifts that I'd buy/have bought for my mum for Mother's Day - so change it to suite your mum! :)

If you know what you're planning to get your mum for Mother's Day let me know in the comments box below!

Too Faced Melted Metal Lipstick Peony | fotd

Hi guys,

The other week I bought this Too Faced Melted Metal Lipstick. It's in the colour Melted Metallic Peony. I actually didn't mean to buy the metallic one, I wanted the normal Melted Lipstick lol! I'm so glad I accidentally bought this one though - it's so nice!

I love the metallic look it gives. I've never had a lipstick like it. They are very pricey though - £19! I like the foam applicator as well. I find it makes the lipstick go on smoother.

I really do love the metallic look, so I might wait until payday and buy another one! This is the only Too Faced product I've ever bought, and I really like this product. I'd also like to try one of their eye shadow palettes.

Let me know if you have any of the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks, whether it's a Melted lipstick or a Metallic one!

Glossybox | February 2016 - Valentine's Day Edition!

Aw look at the packaging! It's all pink and lovey dovey! <3 This Glossybox is so girly and Valentines-ey - I love it!
Here's what I got in my February Glossybox.

MUA Power Pout Glaze - Enchant. Full size £3.50

This is so super glossy! Such a gorgeous colour. I tried this on my lips without any lipstick and it's so pigmented. A lot of glosses I've tried aren't very pigmented but this is. I really do like this - I think I'll do a separate post reviewing it!

Nicka K 24H Waterproof Eyeliner - Dark Brown. Full size £3.99

I don't actually wear pencil eyeliner (I only wear black gel liner) so I gave this to my nan lol, and she likes it. The packaging is good quality, considering how cheap it is!
The Vintage Cosmetic Company Floral Tweezers. Full size £8

These are so cute! I was going to buy another pair of tweezers to keep in my makeup bag because I keep my tweezers in my handbag, but I didn't want to spend £10+ on something I already have. I'm super glad I got these!

Wilkinson Sword Hydro Silk Razor. Full size £9.99

When I saw the razor in the box I was shocked lol. I don't know why I was shocked but I'm glad I got one!
I hate paying out to buy razors - I buy mine when they're on offer! So yes, I'm glad I got this.

Naobay Protective Hair Mask Volume Conditioner. Full Size £10.64

I'm excited to use this! I do love a good hair mask. You only have to leave this hair mask on for 3 minutes, which I think is the perfect amount of time. Other hair masks I've seen have had to be left on for 8 minutes+, which I think is too long! It's ok if you have a bath, but I tend to have showers, so I stand around getting cold! Excited to use this!

Royal Apothic Lip Butter - Full size not known.

I got an extra product in my Glossybox this month because in my January Glossybox they had put in an item that I already received in my December Glossybox (it's all explained in this post here if you're interested!)
I got this cute little lip butter by Royal Apothic. I'm guessing this was a product people got in their January Glossybox. The packaging is adorable - I love it!
If you got a Glossybox this month let me know what you thought of the products. Or if you've done a blog post about it, let me know. I'd love to hear your opinion on the products!

Urban Decay | Gwen Stefani Limited Edition Palette

Hi guys,

I had seen this gorgeous palette all over Instagram and blogs for months and months. I wanted it sooo much but seeing as it was £40 I couldn't bring myself to spend that amount of money on an eye shadow palette - that money could do a weekly shop in Tesco, fill my car up with a lot of petrol, blah blah *grown up stuff* blah. (I've recently moved out, which is why I'm thinking like a grown up!!)

Then one day I was thinking - I work hard for my money and I can't spend some of my hard earned cash on a makeup palette that I want? Why am I working?! So I went out and got this palette lol!

 I'm in love with this palette! This is the first product I've actually ever bought/tried from Urban Decay and I have no complaints. Although one of the main reasons I got this palette is not because it's by Urban Decay, but because I love Gwen Stefani - as you could probably tell if you saw my OPI Haul post.

Apparently the 15 shades in this palette are named after her influences, album names and even where she grew up. I love the packaging, it's so unique!

This palette has matte and shimmer shades, all the shades are gorg. You could easily create daytime to night time looks with this palette, which is very handy!

I'm so glad I decided to buy this palette - definitely one of my favourites!

Have you bought any of the Gwen Stefani products by Urban Decay? Let me know!

Nail Kandy Charms Haul

Hi guys,

Today's post is a little nail charm haul that I got from Nail Kandy Charms. I've never heard of Nail Kandy Charms but they liked one of my Instagram pictures and when I saw their name I was like "oooh I like nail stuff!" so I clicked on their Instagram and omg they have the nicest charms ever - so I ordered some!

Navette Pearl / Gold
Crystal Logo / Pink / Large
Bijou Cluster / Aqua Blue
Unicorn / Gold
Brightest Star / Black
Golden Rudder

Got these so I can do my sister's nails!

I can't wait to try these out! Any nail art I do with these will be on my Instagram (@itsjessiejane) if you're interested. I may do a few nail art tutorials on here aswell :)
