So yet again I was surprised by the postman to another exciting parcel of luxurious Lancome make-up to try out ! It's absolute heaven receiving new make-up to try especially for a make-up artist myself who is obsessed with make-up!

 I was spoilt with the new Lancome L'absolu Rouge lipsticks in the colours 'Indecise' which is such a  beautiful sassy red and also a very pretty pink spring/summer shade in the colour 'Rose Rendez-Vous'! The lipstick collection was created by the ultimate make-up artist legend, Lisa Eldridge, who has designed such amazing colours for everyone's needs.
These lipsticks are opened by simply clicking the rose at the top of the lipstick bullet leaving the lipstick to eject which is a cool unique touch to the lipstick collection!The packaging is very classy and sleek , everything that the brand Lancome is,  not plastic and cheap.

I tried the pink colour 'Rose rendez-Vous' first and I am really happy with the way it suits my completion as normally I'm someone who rarely goes for nude/pink lips. As it is a cream formula it glides on my lips beautifully and feels super moisturising yet pigmented.  It has the old-fashioned lipstick scent which I personally really like as Lancome are keeping it traditional being a brand that's been around for so long. The colour makes me feel very feminine and girly which  I think will look perfect for a very delicate make-up look with subtle eyes.

As I'm someone who loves bold red lips my eyes fell in love as soon as I saw the colour  'Indecise' which is a beautiful red colour, right up my street ! As the formula to this lipstick is sheer it is very similar  to a tinted balm with a slight bit more red pigment. This moisturising formula is perfect for those who are on the run because it offers conditioning and a nice red tint in one step, leaving fuss at bay! I feel like this would be perfect for the colder seasons, especially Christmas!

Overall I think the colour, design and formulas to the lipsticks are divine and definitely a more luxurious addition to your make-up bag. Personally, I do believe  that if you think its way too much damage to your bank card you will definitely find cheaper alternatives that have the same amazing quality! i  think it would be perfect for a Birthday or Christmas present for a friend of family member! 


As I have fallen head over heels for this beautiful purple lip colour which is the NYX Cosmetics Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in the colour'Amethyst' I just had to team it with some gorgeous purple eyes!

If this is a bit too daring for you then it will be perfect for Halloween if you aren't dressing up! I know it's definitely not too daring for me as sometimes love looks that are more different and creative! I've learnt to come out of my comfort zone to experiment and basically not care what anyone thinks ! Total purple goals!

Eyeshadow - I used the colour 'Jilted' from the Urban Decay Electric palette in the crease followed by the colour 'Urban' from the same palette for all over the lid leaving out the centre part. For the centre part of the eyelid I used a little bit of Screen Face D range foundation in the colour 'D1' and then topped it with Stargazer glitter !

Eyeliner- Lancome Grandiose Liner

Eyelashes - Primark Natural False Eyelashes

Highlight - MAC Cosmetics pigment in 'Vanilla'

Lips - NYX Cosmetic Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in the colour 'Amethyst'

So here is look number two! This has to be my favourite so far ; I mean come on , dark berry lips just scream Autumn. I've seen so many beautiful jaw-dropping dark berry lipsticks but this affordable  Rimmel London lipstick in 'Starry Eyed' is one I always go back to every year around this time! I think this would be great for a night out look especially with the orange glitter!

Eyeshadow-  For the eye crease I used 'Chino' eyeshadow to warm it up followed by 'Truffle' eyeshadow from the same MUA Cosmetics Winter Forest palette. For the pop of orange, in the centre, I used an unbranded orange eyeshadow ( any orange eyeshadow will do as long as it is pigmented) topped with orange/bronze glitter which I purchased from Ebay.

Highlighter-  To highlight my inner corners of my eyes and under my brow I used the pigment in 'Vanilla' by MAC Cosmetics. 

Eyeliner - I used my trusty Lancome Grandiose Liner 

Eyelashes - Primark Natural False Lashes

Lipstick- Rimmel London lipstick in 'Starry eyed'

So I have decided to create a series of Autumn makeup looks! This look is inspired by pumpkins, crazy right? I used very autumnal colours and to add a twist i used white eyeliner instead of black followed with large glitter ! I love this look! You could easily even wear this for Halloween!

Eyeshadow - For the crease and below the lower lash line I first used an orange eyeshadow followed by a red ! ( The one I used is unbranded but you can use any). For  the eye lid I used 'Freshly Toasted' from the Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette!

Eyeliner- Unfortunately I can't seem to find a white eyeliner on me so instead I used the Screen Face D range foundation in 'D1' instead. Nyx Cosmetics sell a really good affordable white liquid liner which will work even better! I topped the liner with chunky glitter from Ebay ! This is optional 

False Eyelashes - Natural lashes from Primark 

Lips - For my lips I used the MAC Cosmetics lipstick in 'Morange' then I added some concealer on top to lighten it ! This is a good dupe for Kylie Jenner's lip kit in 'Pumpkin'

If you try any of these looks then tag me on Instagram ! I'd love to see! My Instagram is @lvazraghi 


If anyone knows me they'll know that I am literally OBSESSED with holographic things! I have holographic purses, bags, and phone cases ; I just can't get enough! I know it may seem quite tacky to some people but I think it depends on how you style it!

As make-up to me is a creative outlet I decided to experiment and add it to a makeup look! I ordered some mixed holographic glitter/flakes for very little then began to experiment and here is one of the looks. It is so beautiful !

Eye base - For the base and to whiten the eyelid and inner corner I used Screen Face London D foundation in the colour 'D1'

Eyeshadow-  I used the colours 'Freak' and 'Fringe' from the Urban Decay Electric eyeshadow palette

Holographic mixed mediums - I purchased these from good old Ebay

Eyeliner - Lancome Grandiose Liner 

False Eyelashes - Primark P.S loves in 'Natural'

Highlight - MAC Cosmetics pigment in 'Vanilla'

As I've got older I've realised how beneficial baths are for both your mind and for  relaxation. I think as we get older we seem to carry more stress and  have more things to worry about hence why lately I've really got into baths and really looking after my body.  I will always be a shower person as it's  so much quicker but now and then I really love to treat myself to a nice bath.

I approached the Lush Cosmetics store in Newcastle the other day to find some bath essentials to add to my bath routine and stumbled across the new Autumn and Christmas bath bits!  There is SO much to choose from, I think Lush have definitely upped their game in total bath goals!As they are limited edition I grabbed a few including ...

. Pumpkin bath bomb- This literally smells like pumpkin pie!

. Sparkly Pumpkin bubble bar - This smells so sweet! If you are a fan of sweet scents and glitter then this is for you!

. Boo bath melt- This is just so cute ! How could you not?!

. Autumn Leaf bath bomb -  This smells so fresh! I have used this and it makes your bath water turn red and yellow leaving your bath water orange!

. Nothern lights bath bomb - If you are into your fresh clean floral scents then this is for you!

. The Magic Of Christmas bubble bar wand - How cute is this! It's like Christmas on a stick! The spicy cinnamon scent is to die for on these cosy nights. The lovely girl working at Lush informed me to stick this under warm running water for it to  create bubbles! I'm excited to try this one!

Since purchasing these Lush treats I am so eager to have a bath all the time!

So yesterday I was having a little browse through the make-up counters in Fenwicks to treat myself as I had just been paid earlier that day, yay! Even when I am skint I still love to browse the makeup stands to investigate what's new leaving me to  walk out with a zillion swatches on the back of my hands... every time!

I had a wander around the MAC store and I seen this pigment instantly catch my eye! I am already a lover of MACS pigments as they are so creamy and last forever as a little bit goes a long way! As I love my  'Vanilla' and 'Golden Olive' MAC pigments which I use a lot I am always happy to extend my pigments family so I am so eager to swatch new colours. I swatched the pigment in 'Blue Brown' and I can not describe how amazed I was at the colour . Its two toned so it contains both brown and blue and I can't describe how much I am OBSESSED with this unique colour ; I've never seen anything quite like it.

I asked the lovely girl who was working at MAC to put it on my eye lid to see how it would look and it instantly made my eyes pop! I purchased it and excitedly went home to create an eye look ! It looks like I have used so many colours but all I used is the pigment itself all over the lid and from the ZOEVA Cocoa blend Palette I used to colours 'Substitute For Love' and 'Freshly Toasted' in my crease.

Simply beautiful.
