Cher LLoyd animal print nails X factor

Hi, love her or hate her Cher Lloyd an x factor finalist is certainly in the public eye at the moment, and if you saw last weeks performance you might of noticed her quirkey animal print nails.

I had already heard that OPI were the providers of the nail polish worn on stage by the finalists and I love OPI as they have such an amazing amount of shades to chooses from including their cute names as well.

So it came as no suprise to me to learn this, however I did wonder how they had done the animal print desighn.

I used OPI oh so glam and went over it with Barry M nail effects it was really easy to do, not bad for a first attempt.

What do you think.?

Christmas contest coming soon

Hi Christmas is just around the corner and as usual I have done nothing. In fact im lazy in that I would rather order off the internet rather than spend hours walking round the shop s(dont get me wrong I love shopping), then to be annoyed when I see the same thing I purchased has been significantly reduced in the new year sale grrr.

But at least I have finally got together after much diliberation my blog Christmas give away. Yes one lucky follower will be winning a gorgeous prize and I have decided to give four things away to one person. There will be something from Mac,  Barry M,  sleek and illamasqua. oh and not forgetting the obligitory christmas false lashes as well.

I will be revealing what these goodies will be shortly so keep checking back.

You do need to be a subscriber to my you tube channel makeupaddict2416 and also a follower to my blog.

Check back soon.

Face Atelier foundation

Hi everyone, I had read so much about this foundation that I had some samples sent to me.  Now because the ordering is online as you all probably are aware it can be difficult to get a true colour match to your skin tone.
So they sent me three seperate colours, Sepia, Honey and Tan.

The ultra foundation is apparantly worn by many a celeb including Madona and promises to leave the skin flawless as it has a unique blend of silicone effectvely airbrushing your complexion and it comes in 10 water proof shades that dont shift.

So I will be playing around with this, or probably making it last as it has a high price tag of £32.00, so its worth testing out before you buy the big one.

Il be reporting back to let you know what I think both on here and my you tube channel, so keep coming back for the review.

The foundation can be bought at also at and

Have you tried it yet if so what do you think, is it worth all the hype?

Bye 4 now
