Review: Bella Pierre Get The Look

A: Okay so I have actually had this beautiful little trio for a long while now, and I hadn’t used it for ages – but it’s now one of my faves!

It was a bargain that I picked up from TK Maxx for £9.50, at the time I hadn’t heard of the brand – I just thought the colours were really pretty but after a bit of research when I got home, I saw that these kits actually retail at £39.99 which is crazy!

Firstly, the brushed alone are worth £14.99 each, and they are really lovely to use. The liner brush is super precise and the blender is lovely and soft too and lends itself perfectly to blending the metallic minerals.

So onto the shadows themselves…

As you can see you get three shadows in the kit; a light, a medium and a dark shade. The kits come in various colours – this is the ‘Pretty Woman’ kit. They designed to use together to create that perfect smokey eye look, which they work really well for – but they’re also beautiful on their own as an all-over eye colour because they are so pigmented and shimmery.

I’m really pleased I got my hand on this particular kit because the copper tones are perfect for me. The kit actually also comes with a primer (forgot to photograph this soz!), but this really helps to keep the shadow in place all day/evening.

I’m really excited to show you some make-up looks with these – if you want to see the whole collection by Bella-Pierre, just click here! #twolittleowls

A Very Lucky Annie number 2!

A: You can see the first part of this post here, as Chloe and I were both super spoilt over the Christmas period, we decided to split up our ‘haul’ posts into a few separate ones – so here’s my second post! We are in no way bragging about the gifts we have received, we just love reading these kinds of posts on other blogs so thought we would share ours with your lovely readers.

I got a really lovely selection of beauty products, some new nail varnishes – Barry M, a Sally Hansen and an Essie, all of which I will be reviewing in the future so keep following! My cousin got me some gorgeous Bare Minerals lip glosses too, which I have had my eye on for a while!
Chloe got me the Zoella Soak Opera which I have been after testing out for ages, and she also got me the Holly Go Lightly bath bomb from Lush as well as the most beautiful highlighter/blush in the world from I ❤️ Make Up. She knows me so well! Lastly in the ‘beauty’ section, my brother and sister-in-law got me the Chanel No.5 body lotion, something I have been lusting after since I tested out my Mum’s a few months ago (see here for my review!) so I was super excited to receive this.

Onto jewellery, my parents got me these beautiful handmade glass earrings from a craft market in Tenerife. And my boyfriend did very well indeed as he got me these pearls, which are beyond precious. I love them so much and can’t wait to wear them and I will treasure them for the rest of my life.

An AMAZING handbag/backpack from my brother and sister-in-law. I start a new job in January and I’m so excited to pack this up and use it. I’m very particular about bags but this one is perfect, I cannot wait to wear it! It’s Jane Shilton, but it came from TK Maxx – I’m not at all bothered by brands, I love this purely because it’s so practical/patent blue with massive gold fastenings!

We have two British Blues and because I’m a crazy cat lady I tend to get a lot of cat related gifts. I love this watch so much, my friend Spen bought me it and it’s hideous/amazing at the same time. I also got this book, and the cat on the front cover look exactly like my cats Bill and Ted!

We also get a lot of campervan related gifts because we have a campervan! This amazing crocheted bag is from my mum and was made by my auntie, she is a genius when it comes to knitting and crocheting – it’s amazing isn’t it!! A lovely campervan moneybox too, to help us save our pennies for how holidays. And a super cute campervan case from my beautiful cousin, which I will be using as a pencil case for my new job!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/178/63282436/files/2014/12/img_5060.jpgAnd lastly for now, a beautiful faux fur leopard print coat from my lovely aunt and uncle. I CANNOT get enough of this, it’s from Red Herring and feels beautiful to wear. I can guarantee it’ll be in a lot of ootds! An amazing tartan scarf which was actually featured in my Christmas wishlist – well done to my cousin on this one! It’s from ASOS and it’s so cosy! I don’t even care that they totally don’t match, I’m more than happy to wear them at the same time. It’s normal to want to wear all of your Christmas presents at once isn’t it? And finally, these gorgeous Cath Kidston earrings with emerald green colour stones. They are so special, I’ve been wearing them every day since Christmas 🙂

Sorry for the super long post guys, but I hope you enjoyed reading and being nosey! What did you get for Christmas? #twolittleowlsblog

A sneaky Tuesday Haul.

C & A: We had a little trip to our local TK Maxx today on the hunt for professional people work clothes and a wedding outfit. We didn’t do too great with planned hunt, but we bought lots of fun stuff!

Okay so we bought the same skirt, but it’s an amazing skirt and was a bargain at £10! Neither of us could say no because it’s such a flattering shape and fabric that it looks lovely on. Super happy! We may have also both bought green jars, but they aren’t exactly the same! Annie chose the one with the copper coloured lid but she needs to have a practice run of where it will go, it was originally bought as a coffee jar but we think it would look really pretty on her dressing table. Chloe chose the one with the glass lid, which she will use on her dressing table in her *new* (not jinxing) house. These were just £3.99 – so cheap for such beautiful glassware.

Next, Chloe found this amazing maxi dress with a really pretty gold floral/leaf print. Perfect for this time of year and also something she can wear for work. It cost £15.

Annie bought these amazing hand-painted knobs (LOLZ) for her vintage bureau (pictures will be coming soon, we promise!). These are so pretty and are perfect for making a piece of furniture unique, and they were only £3.99!
Lastly, a haul isn’t complete without make-up. This is another of Annie’s purchases, a Revlon lipstick in the shade 075 Peach. Orange lipsticks are perfect for Annie, even though she has orange hair, but they really suit her skin tone. £2.99 – perfect!

Chloe’s mini haul!

C: you may have seen Annie’s amazing haul from our shopping trip on the weekend, so I thought I had better share with you what I got! I didn’t go quite as crazy as Annie as I really don’t need new clothes and I am meant to be saving for a house, but here’s what I did treat myself too:

20140415-163701.jpg

I got this amazing 1950’s style skirt from Primark for a bargain £10! I can’t wait to wear it this summer with a vintage blouse or a loose vest top, it will look amazing. It is also a bit longer than my other skirts so I can wear it without tights and not have to worry – perfect!

I also got this loose dress from TK Maxx for £12.99 (well I didn’t buy it due to “saving” but then I was sad when I got home so my good friend Kitty took me to buy it the next day!). I can’t find any links for you to buy it on (the) line but there were several in store so I am sure you would be able to find it – the make is QED London! This is perfect for one of those days where you need to be comfy but still want to look reasonable! I have been wearing this with leggings all day whilst in Uni and I am in love!

I also got a new nail varnish top coat but that was a boring picture… I shall do a review once I have tested it out properly! We also got new dresses for a ball we are going too in June, but we shall be doing a special post for those dresses to see what you lot think, so keep an eye out for that!
