My Lipsticks (PART 1 of Lips)

Hi guys,
So here's my much awaited part 1 of Lip Products: Lipsticks. I have quite a lot of lipsticks because, I get bored of the same one each time and I experiment with different colours as well. However I have had a clearout recently and thrown many away. I will add a link if  I can find a website selling them online I will. Some lippys of mine are quite old and may have been discontinued so if you can't find them sorry!

1.  17 Mirror Shine Lipstick in Pinked

I love this colour (baby pink) and it's relatively new. I used to have an Avon Lipstick in Champagne which was a similar colour (hello to Avon users 2007-!) I don't like the consistency that much though.

Best Lush Bath Bombs

Hi guys,
Here's my post on best Lush Bath Bombs. You can buy them at . Some are relatively cheap but some of these are only available in certain seasons.
1. Dragons Egg

This bath bomb is great! Your bath goes glittery and orange like you poured Lucozade in there! It smells great too and there are bits of paper confetti.

2. Cinders

This smells great but unfortunately you can only buy it around Christmas time. However you wouldn't want it any other time of year because it has the spicy warm Christmassy scent that you wouldn't want any other time of year. It makes your bathroom smell gorgeous for ages as well!

3. Space Girl

This is a gorgeous glittering galactic bomb with popping candy inside! It's gorgeous with a grapefruit scent to match.

4. Rose Queen

A gorgeous scent that's very rose-y and I think is very soothing. With real rose petals.

5. Golden Dream

A multicoloured sensation. Each layer is a different colour! It has the same scent as the old Snowshowers Shower Jelly with Champagne, Orange and Cognac.

6. Think Pink

This bath bomb sends your bath water BRIGHT PINK!! It is vanillary and gorgeous and I love it.

If you would like me to review a certain product email me at or Google + me at +SaffronLallem

Review of Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil

Hiya guys,
So if you have seen my beauty haul post then you will have seen that I bought a Rimmel eyebrow pencil in 001 Dark Brown. Here's my review:
This product isn't great to be honest. It is very gingery and not a very good dark brown colour for dark brows.
The next colour after that is black which is too heavy for me.
It doesn't come off very easily with makeup remover but its salvaging point is that I dropped it and it didn't break.
The eyebrow brush is awful: too painful to brush eyebrows with and far too bristly.
All in all I think that Rimmel need to rethink this product and I would not recommend this.

How to KICK nervous habits!

Hi guys,
So yesterday I thought I would do advice as well as beauty stuff in my blog: Saffy (Life)Style!
One thing I used to do when I was nervous was bite my lips and inner cheek. Not just a nibble though, a full on ravage and I've heard of many things people do when they are nervous. So I thought that I would create a post giving ideas on how to resist the urge to do your habit.

1. DO NOT EVER find a replacement in the same area e.g if you bite your lip DO NOT chew gum: when you remove the distractions the affected area will get bored and just do it more.

2. Notice when you do it and force yourself to stop there and then. None of this 'after the next time'.

3. Notice why you do it. Is it when you are bored, anxious etc.

4. If it gets really bad get friends or family to alert you to when you do it.

5. Also if it gets out of hand, make a chart on a calendar, diary or homemade one. Tick days where you go a day without it and say why you did it if you did.
Kick those habits; its not just for New Year!

How to get to sleep if you are stressed

Hi guys,
Sometimes I have real problems going to sleep so I thought that I would offer my suggestions.
- Keep a notebook by your bed to scribble down ideas or those last minute worries.
Often I think of something late at night and by the morning I have forgotten.
- Don't use anything with a screen when trying to fall asleep.
No mobiles, laptops or TVs will help you fall asleep. This is because they have a backlight which stimulates your eyes. Reading a book under light just bright enough to read in is fine.
- Don't start reading a novel before bed.
It will get your mind wrapped up in the story if you stop halfway through. It's best to read poems or short stories.
- Relax.
If you try really hard to fall asleep, you won't because you are concentrating too hard. Instead clear your mind and think of happy thoughts.
- Think nice things.
For two reasons think of nice things:
1. It's easier to fall asleep with happy thoughts instead of bad ones churning through your head.
2. If you suffer from nightmares, you may have better dreams if you are not thinking of things that.worry you.
Hope this helps!! Leave me a comment on my Google + or in the comment section below

Nail care

Hi guys,
Here's a nail care post about what I do to keep my nails healthy.
It is really important to get a lot of calcium for your skin, nails, bones and teeth and it really does help.
I clean out my nails using a nail brush and then once a week, using a cuticle pusher, I go under my nails up until the skin to take out dirt and then around the edge to take out, dust and make sure my nails won't be ingrowing.
Then I push my cuticles back and rub them and my nails with Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Balm. This has a gorgeous smell and although I don't have super hard cuticles, it still makes a big difference. It really does also work on hard cuticles.
Then using one of the 4 way file blocks with a buffer, polisher, filer etc. I cannot remember the brand of it but you can get them from loads of places.
I also make sure not to permanently have nail varnish ire false nails on. It does ruin your nails if you always have nail polish on them and you have to get Vitamin D to them via the Sun's rays.
That's all that I really do to take care of my nails but it just makes them look really nice.

Review of Sinful Colours nail varnish

Hi guys,
I still haven't done my lip posts but I thought I would post this review to keep you guys entertained.
If you read my post a couple of posts back, I did a beauty haul and one of the items that I bought were the Sinful Colours Nail Varnishes in Pink Forever. The pic is below.
Recently I have been chatting with someone who's blog is great ( her name on Google is +ShalunyaTanodra ) and because she is from Oklahoma and I am from England, she didn't know you could get Sinful Colours across the pond here in the UK. I think they are relatively new but they are really cheap and reduced to 99p in Boots.
Anyway, onto the actual varnish, it is a great colour that completely finishes an outfit perfectly. Like it says on the bottle, I think it takes two coats but if you are in a rush, one would be fine.
It lasts for about 3 days without chipping without a top coat and about 5 days with. Another great thing about it though is that on dry or flaky nails, it lasts really well with a good top coat!

So this is a great colour and a great bargain and is highly recommended by me! Keep commenting +1 ing and reading! Saffy

My nail varnishes

Hi guys,
So here's my much awaited nail varnish collection:

1. American Apparel Nail Lacquer in Office

A gorgeous colour that lasts for days and is a shiny sheen.

2.  SEVENTEEN Lasting Fix Nail Polish in Pink Grapefruit.

A bright pop of colour great for fingers or toes.

3. Avon Gold Nailwear Pro in Golden Dream

A great gold top layer perfect on its own or over another colour.

4. No7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour in Milan 110

A perfect party colour that is so highly pigmented and glittery that it is the ultimate wow colour!

5. SEVENTEEN Nail Xtras Double Gloss Top Coat.
This is perfect as a top coat but it needs two coats to make it glossy.

6. Collection 2000 Hot Looks Fast Dry in 1(Lola)

This is a pearly colour that is subtle but shimmery.

7. Nail Paint by Barry M in 264 

This is choc full of glitter and looks amazing!

8. Avon Nailwear in Cotton Candy 

This is a natural gorgeous colour.

9. Avon Nailwear Pro in Real Red

This is a crimson red that I first bought for a Halloween party where I was a devil.

10. No7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour in Minty Fresh 

One of my favourite colours, I love the blue of it. If you want a proper turquoise, it takes 3-4 coats but at least 2.

11. MUA Makeup Academy Nail Varnish in Amaretto Crush

A really nice pink verging on sandy nude. Not very long lasting though.

12. MUA Makeup Academy Nail Varnish in Pistachio Ice Cream

This is a gorgeous colour but like the other MUA colours, it doesn't last that long.

13. Dior Vernis Cruise Nail Lacquer

I adore these colours and a lot of people don't but I love the vividness of these colours.

14. Dior Vernis in 206 Blue Denim

This is one of my nail varnish staples - it's gorgeous!

15. Yves Saint Laurent La Laque Couture in 36 Vert D'Orient 

Another staple of mine - a gorgeous teal colour.

16. Yves Saint Laurent La Laque Couture in 4 Corail Colisee

So gorgeous for summer!!

That's it - Hope you liked this post. If there are any comments or questions ask in the comment section

Beauty Haul

Hi guys,
I went shopping with my friend today and I bought the following:

Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil in 001 Dark Brown:
It actually isn't that dark because I have blonde hair but brown eyebrows (not dyed hair) but even this doesn't quite match up to my shade.

Sinful Colours Professional in Pink Forever
A gorgeous, richly pigmented colour.

Clinique Even Better Eyes Dark Circles Corrector
I have a massive problem with dark circles and I try everything: I drink loads of water, sleep well, don't smoke, don't drink massively all the time etc and I have no idea why I get such bad circles. This I have only tried for a day but seems already to have brightened up that area.

L'Oreal Paris Rouge Caresse in 103 Sweet Berry
It has a gorgeous silky feel, it only needs a slick to add a pop of colour to your lips and it moisturises beautifully.

Benefit Ultra Plush Lip Gloss in Fauxmance
This is a super slick shiny sheen of gloss to brighten and beautify your face. Tastes fab as well.

Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean Toning Lotion
This is perfect for all skin types, it is a cleansing toner and gentle exfoliant in one. Doesn't need washing off. 

Lush Waving Not Drowning Bath Bomb
A gorgeous floral, ylang ylang and lavender scented bomb with undertones of cardamom. This is so relaxing and leaves your body with a heavenly scent.

No7 Stay Perfect Long Lasting Mascara
Is it just me or does this look practically the EXACT SAME as the YSL Mascara? I mean surely there's copyright! Nevertheless, this is a great mascara.

More to come soon

My nails

Hi guys
Here are my newly done nails. One hand glittered with the little finger blue and the left hand blue with the little finger glittered.
So I will tell you how I did it:
1. Paint one coat of American Apparel Nail Lacquer in Office.

2. For those that you want to nail glitter, add a second coat.

3. Whilst this is still wet, tip some glitter onto them and brush off the excess. It is best to do this one nail at a time.

4. Add a clear top coat to secure once dry.
