New Blog!! I've Moved!!

Hi beauties,

I hope you're all having a great Sunday - I'm finding it hard to move from my warm bed!

So I wanted to let you all know that I've moved my blog... well actually it's a fresh start. I couldn't quite see where I was taking As Pretty As You Please, which is why it got quite neglected some months. I wanted to join up my make up artistry more with my blog, so have started - I currently have 0 followers so would love it if you could stop by and say hello!! x

Nars Eyeshadow Duo in Kalahari

Hi beauties,

I hope you're all having a fab Sunday!

Today's blog post is on this little beauty - Nars Eyeshadow Duo in Kalahari (shop here). I got a voucher for Space NK for my birthday so went to have a look round last week... ahh too much I want in that shop!

I have a few Nars products, but none of their eyeshadows and this one really caught my eye. Both shimmery, warm-toned colours - I thought these would be perfect for this time of year. Very autumnal!

At £25, I think this is fairly reasonable price for a high-end product. After all, you are getting two shadows. The packaging is lovely as always and I like that you get a mini mirror inside the lid which is useful for touch ups on the go.

The left shade is a beautiful gold tone and the right shade more of a bronzy shade with a hint of purple. As I'm fair skinned I like to add a light lid colour to this combination so that it's not too dark/heavy.

I love this product and would definitely look at investing in more of these lovely duos.

Can you recommend any fave Nars eyeshadows?

Charlotte Tilbury Make up Review - Bitch Perfect and Portobello Girl

Hi beauties,

I hope you're all well!

Now I'm sure you were all as excited as I was when the amazing Charlotte Tilbury launched her gorgeous make up range earlier this year. As a makeup artist she's a huge inspiration to me, and I knew that her products would reflect her years in the industry - I was in no way disappointed. 

Firstly, HOW GORGEOUS IS THE PACKAGING! Inspired by vintage glamour, it has such a luxurious look. I was kindly bought these two items for my birthday... here are my thoughts!

K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick in Bitch Perfect £23.00 available at Selfridges & Co 

This is the perfect pinky-nude (it's coming out more pinky on camera!). Fab for every day wear. The texture of the lipstick is extremely moisturising and has really great staying power, which I was pleasantly surprised about! It's lightly scented (reminds me of MAC lipsticks) - that delicious lovely vanilla smell. And the gold casing is just amazing. All I can say is that I need more.

Lip Lustre luxe colour-lasting lip lacquer in Portobello Girl £16.50 available at Selfridges & Co

A gorgeous vintage pink, this looks so pretty over the top of the Bitch Perfect lippy. It's got a sight shimmer to it which is nice, and like the lipstick it's a beautiful consistency which literally glides on the lips. The only thing I would say is that the tube is a little on the small, so I will be saving this for special occasions! 

Have you tried any products from the Charlotte Tilbury range?

Here's hoping I've been a good girl this year... Santa's got a rather large wish list coming his way :)
