#BritishBloggerSelection & Announcements


Firstly I just wanted to say:

 that I've gone back to Blogger style comments after getting a bit over excited and eager about getting Google + comments. (I just clicked on having it without really thinking about it!) Unfortunately, this means that all your lovely previous comments will have disappeared which is just utterly heartbreaking! :( But hopefully, with any luck, you'll be replacing them soon enough with more :)

 my Giveaway is over! And the lucky winner is Charlotte from Makeup by Candlelight, so congratulations Charlotte!

 I'm in the process of giving my blog a pretty hefty overhaul, including URL and design changes so I would be so eternally appreciative if you would bear with me through this big change :) Just wanted to give you a little forewarning because I really do appreciate my gorgeous readers and followers and always want to be open and honest with you, and not do anything to "freak you out"!!


I love a multitude of brands when it comes to makeup. Charlotte Tilbury is my latest favourite but Chantecaille, Laura Mercier and Bourjois are but to name a mere few! But were I forced to choose 1 brand above the rest, it would be, the iconic, Chanel.

I essentially love everything about their makeup. The packaging for a start is exquisite. I love the sleek piano-black with gold accents and seeing the little CC logo on my dressing table makes me happy everytime. The frosted glass bottles of things like Pro Lumiere just ooze quality.

And the quality doesn't just stop at the packaging.

Their base products are amazing, I would go as far in saying that their Vitalumiere Aqua (review here) is my favourite foundation of all time. 

My favourite ever nail polish, Malice, is also one of theirs. 

I find their textures, finishes and colourings predominantly very good: I love their smudge-proof mascara and the Illusion D'Ombre pots. You also tend to find the obscure, unusual hybrid colours like "purpley-taupes" and "greige's" such as the Particuliere nail polish, that are admittedly filtering down into drugstore brands but I feel high end brands do them a lot better.

Granted their prices are not cheap, but for the quality and a brand I trust and love, I consider them more than worth it! Of course if you are looking for a more affordable version, Bourjois and Chanel are closely affiliated so look out for the same ingredients and technologies being used in Bourjois products.


Nail art: Christmas Jumper|Fairisle #NOTD


Hiii :)

Firstly, there's 1 day left (!!!) of my giveaway, please go ahead and enter to get some Asian skincare :)

I have a cute, festive nail tutorial for you today, it looks relatively complicated but it's really quite simple and therapeutic as it's mostly geometric shapes and patterns, no portraits or real artwork!

What you will need:

♥ Nail polishes in Pale Blue, White, Red, and a clear topcoat

♥ Acrylic paints in White, Red and Blue

♥ A fine brush, whether it be a liner brush, nail art brush or paintbrush.

♥ A little time and a steady hand!

1. Paint your nails with the 3 base colours. Don't worry if it's a little shoddy like my white, everything will come together at the end!

2. Start painting on your design. Use dots, hearts, zig zags and stripes, and possibly include an awful "reindeer" like mine! You can always refer to Christmas jumpers on Google for some nailspiration :)
(And don't worry if the paint goes on a bit blotchy, just be as precise as you can manage and the final step will smooth out any mishaps!)

3. Once you're finished and happy, and the paints are dry, seal in with a clear polish. The topcoat automagically corrects any blotchiness or bumpiness and smooths out your design.

And there, fun, festive fair isle nails to be wearing this winter!

Hope you enjoyed, have an amazing day :)


BEST Exfoliator Ever: Cure Natural Aqua Gel


Hiii :)

A little review for you today, especially good if you're suffering a bit from the wintery coldness and central heating playing havoc with your skin! You may recognise this from my Korean/Asian skincare haul and I am so excited to review it!!

Cure natural aqua gel product review exfoliator

Cure Natural Aqua Gel  is a gentle exfoliator that has no abrasive particles. It's literally perfect for sensitive skins.

It exfoliates the skin without causing it any stress or discomfort, leaving the skin smooth and bright. I've been using this product for around a month and it's amazing! It's hands down the best exfoliating product I've ever tried, and it's made me totally renounce scrub-style exfoliators. (For a all natural DIY solution, I still reallyreally like, check out my DIY Skin Brightening remedy) The ingredients on my bottle are in Korean so it may not be so helpful of me to post a photo but I got this picture from the lovely http://makeupkismet.blogspot.co.uk/:

Best exfoliator Cure natural aqua gel product review

In Asia it's really popular to exfoliate your body with these little scrubbing mitts, which cause dead skin to "ball up" and then you wash it away. It's really effective and I prefer that method to any Western salt or sugar scrub. The Cure gel is like a really gentle version of the Asian mitt, for your face.

How to use/how I use it

I pump 1-2 pumps onto my fingertips and spread it all over my face, skipping the eye area. Once it's spread I leave it for around 30 seconds then begin to massage the product into my face until it starts to clump up. I continue massaging for around 30 seconds to 1 minute until there are lots of clumps then wash it all off and dry with a towel.

Product Review Best exfoliator Cure natural aqua gel
Hopefully you can see the little clumps in the rightmost photo!

You get 250g of product for your money, and there's the downside; the money. It's pretty pricey, especially outside of Asia. (~£30 in the UK or ~$30 in the US) I would use it once or twice a week and the bottle should last around 4-5 months. So is it worth it? I can understand those of you that think it's wayyyy too expensive but for the most gentle yet effective exfoliator I've tried? I'm willing to part with the money :)

I hope you found this helpful! and have an amazing day :)

Christmas Beauty Gift Guide! Part 1 of 2


Hiii :)

So I usually tend to think that Christmas starts on December 1st. That's when I can start playing Mariah, get as many fairy lights out as possible and start eating mince pies. But I've decided to unleash my Christmas Gift Guide in mid-November, for those of you who want ideas now :)

Now really, there are soooo many novelty, fashion and lifestyle pieces that I've been loving and would make excellent gifts but I had to draw a line somewhere or this post would just be ridiculous, its already very long! Hence the following gifts are all going to be beauty related :)

I've split this Guide into 2 parts so it's not "crazylong" for you to read!

SAVE: £10 and under

Christmas-beauty-gift-guide-body-shop-pug-mirror-no7-palette-topshop-nail polish

♥ The Body Shop Shea Lip & Softening Gift Set £7: A gorgeous duo of the 50ml Shea Body Butter and Shea lipbalm, in a cute snowman costume!

♥ Catseye Pug Compact £4.50: I love all the Catseye Pug items, such a cute little face!

♥ Boots No7 Eye Appeal Eyeshadow Palette £10: A great, affordable alternative to the Clarins The Essentials palette, comes with 8 great neutral colours and all for only £10! It's also a great alternative to the Avon palette featured in my Day to Night Evening makeup look if that isn't the easiest to get hold of :)

♥ Topshop Nail Pyramid in Magpie £5: Super cute glittery polish in lovely christmassy packaging that you can hang on your tree! Makes a great stocking filler or Secret Santa gift and comes in 3 other colours: red, blue, and multi-coloured glitter.

SPEND: £10-£29.99


♥ Steamcream in Silent Night £12.95: The famous, multi-use cream full of natural ingredients such as Oatmeal and Jojoba. I think this tin is so gorgeous and festive!

♥ Butter London Double Take Duo in Fire £19: This duo is amazing! You get a gorgeous deep red with golden shimmer, and the glitter flake irridescent topcoat.

♥ The Body Shop Ginger Sparkle Collection £17: I love this Ginger Sparkle range, the scent is so amazing and christmassy. This set comes with the Shower Gel, Scrub, Body Butter and mini heart shaped soap :)

♥ Bobbi Brown Date Night Palette £24: I think this palette is amazing! You get 3 great eyeshadows, 2 lip colours and a mini gloss in an elegant looking Bobbi Brown palette and all for only £24! 


♥ OPI Mariah Carey Mini Holiday Collection £12.95: Contains 4 gorgeous colours by OPI, including a fabulous gold glitter and Vision of Love, a great dupe for Chanel's Rouge Noir.

♥ MAC Nocturnals Pigments and Glitter in Black & Gold £25.50: Contains 3 pigments in Naked, Museum Bronze and Copper Sparkle, and 2 glitters in Black and Gold. Comes in 2 other colour ranges: Green & Teal and Silver & Violet.


christmas-beauty-gift-guide-boots-advent-calendar-You beauty

♥ Boots Beauty Advent Calendar £30: Now I know that these are sold out online but you still may be able to grab one in a store! It's also on eBay but for pretty inflated prices :(

♥ YOU Beauty Advent Calendar £49.95: This is a possible alternative to the other calendars that seem to be selling out everywhere! (Especially the Selfridges one that I was soooo wanting!) There's around £240's worth of content, including items from Sisley, Neom and Caudalie and if you're hesitant in parting with the £50, their website shows you what you're getting (obviously not in order) so you can deliberate beforehand.

 SPLURGE: £50+


♥ Charlotte Tilbury The Perfect Red Kiss £73.50: In light of my love for Charlotte Tilbury's makeup collection (review here), it's hardly a surprised that pieces have made it into this post :) This little set has everything you'd need for the perfect, pin-up red lip: the lipstick in So Marilyn, lipgloss in Red Viven, lip pencil in Kiss N Tell and lip brush. There are 4 other sets available, such as The Perfect Nude and Perfect Vamp Kiss. My only qualm is that it's no cheaper to buy the set than each individual item but come on, imagine if the bf or husband got you this for Christmas?!

♥ Eve Lom The Luxury Collection £85: This luxury set includes 100ml of the famous cleanser and 50ml of both the Rescue Mask and TLC Radiance Cream. You can save around £50 by buying this set rather than getting the items individually and it would make for a lovely Christmas gift for someone special (or another item for the wishlist haha!)

And my oddball pick:

If you spend £150 in Liberty (which, let's face it, is easily done..) you can get this amazing beauty gift of 22 items worth £300, which includes items from Aesop, Chantecaille, Trish McEvoy, Hourglass and Laura Mercier! Unfortunately this is no longer available online but if you can get down to their store in London, snap this offer up quick!
(If you're going to buy things specifically to get this gift, I would ask beforehand to make sure they have some in stock to avoid disappointment!)

What are your favourite picks???

Hope you've enjoyed reading and look out for Part 2 with plenty more ideas for all purse depths! :)


Charlotte Tilbury makeup: First Impressions

1 comment

Hiiiii :)

I am so late on the bandwagon but...

Popped into Selfridges the other day to buy Illasmasqua's Skin Base (review coming up!) and got drawn into the Charlotte Tilbury stand like a moth to a flame! There are not too many beauty brands where I like the majority of their collection. Chanel is one of them but let's be honest, what wrong can Chanel do?! haha. I strongly suspect that Charlotte Tilbury is going to become another.

I'd heard and seen photos of most of the collection but this was the first time I'd seen or swatched it in person and I really have the feeling that my bank balance is going to take a huge hit due to these; my stand outs: 

Luxury Palette Eyeshadow Quads

These are supposed to be colour coded so you know what shadow to put where but they are just gorgeous regardless. The packaging is exquisite, and the colours are so appealing to someone like me who likes everyday nudes or golden glittery things! The texture is beautiful, each shade is pigmented, not chalky, and applies to the skin like a dream. They come in at £38 each, which is level with Chanel's eyeshadow quads. I've tried to choose a favourite but just can't, I'd love to own The Dolce Vita, Golden Goddess, Uptown Girl, Sophisticate, Vintage Vamp and Glamous Muse. Only 6 of the 8 then..... 

Wonderglow Instant Soft-Focus Beauty Flash

A mix between skincare and makeup, this serum-like liquid adds amazing glow to the skin whilst containing skincare ingredients such as Sodium Hyaluronate and peptides and is the type of product that I typically would be interested in! (There's a lot more info from her website) At £38.50 for 40ml, it's not cheap.. but it looks stunning.

Filmstar Bronze and Glow Face Sculpt & Highlight

This gorgeous palette includes a contour colour, which has a slightly pearlescent finish, and a highlight, both of which are an amazing texture for powder products. The colours are on the warm side but definitely not orange in tone which is super important for creating shadow! (If you prefer something a little more ashen, try Illamasqua's cream pigment in Hollow.) Again the packaging is beautiful but this little guy is priced at a hefty £49!

Lip products:

I was really drawn to her great collection of nudes and deep reds, the colours and textures of which are amazing. My stand out products were: (from left to right in the swatches below)

Lip Lustre lipgloss in Seduction £16.50

Lip Cheat lip pencil in Pillow Talk £16

K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick in Penelope Pink £23

Lip Cheat pencil in Kiss n Tell £16

K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick in Night Crimson £23

Lip Cheat pencil in Savage Rose £16

Lip Lustre lipgloss in Unleash me £16.50

Overall I think it's an amazing collection and I can't believe i've left it this long before trying it! If I could create a collection of makeup, Charlotte Tilbury would pretty much be it. It's definitely a luxury brand, in quality of the products (textures, colours etc), packaging and price!!

Have you tried anything from Charlotte Tilbury or are there any pieces that tempt you??

Have a fantastic day :)


Tuesday Ramble: Jewellery, #FOTD, #British Blogger Selection, Blog change?!


Hiii :)

Today's post is a little window into my life at the moment, and the first of it's kind on Tigerlily's Beauty Blog to date!

Firstly, I'm in complete dilemmasville about changing up my blog?! I want my URL and blog name to match for one, also I tried googling my blog and it's getting lost amongst outcomes for a beauty salon with a similar name! Apparently it's not the easiest thing to do and I might risk confusing you, my lovely readers, by doing so. DO I RISK IT?! If you have any thoughts or experience, pleaseeee do comment!!

Thought I'd share with you today's FOTD and a necklace I have been lovingggggg wearing lately :)

This precious thing is from M&S and is a stunning mint green "mini statement" necklace with silver coloured hardware. It's great to wear with jumpers, I have a particular marl grey favourite that it goes so well with! And I'm finding it's just a little bit of interest to an otherwise unaccessorised outfit (minimal efforttttt!) like jeans and jumper!

And thirdlyyy, #BritishBloggerSelection. Ellie thought it'd be cute doing a little Q&A this week, and I totally agree :) Here are her questions and my answers! (A good chance for me to ramble on about my thoughts haha)

1. Why do you like blogging?

I'm sure many of us have written cliche answers to this question and i'm afraid I am going to be no different! In truth, I like blogging because it's a chance to meet, interact and make friends with a new little beauty community! I also like to share my finds and get tips from others!

2. How did you come up with your blog name?

Tigerlily was a nickname of mine when I was at primary school :) It was a bit of an "on a whim" decision, which is partly why I'm considering changing it!

3. Where in the UK do you come from?

Surrey :)

4. Favourite colour?

This is such a typical question that I should have an answer to but I don't really. It depends on what it's for? E.g for clothing I like creams, navy, white, tan etc, for flowers I like pink. Or white/cream if they're roses! Such an overcomplicated answer for such a simple question haha.

5. Do you like Lana Del Rey?

No. I'm sorry to all the Lana fans but I find her songs/face/voice is just so mopey and depressing.

6. Hidden talents that you have?

I can bend my thumbs back to touch my arm. Otherwise I play piano pretty well!

7. Celebrity crush?

Jesse Metcalfe, RPatz but only in Remember Me

8. Favourite Blog of all time?

I can't decide....

9. What made you want to join #BritishBloggerSelection?

It just reinforces the community element that I really enjoy about blogging :)

Hopefully you enjoyed reading a tiny snippet of my life and didn't find it boring or bereft of purpose!!!

Have an amazing day :)


Day-to-Night autumn makeup: Part 2 Evening :)

1 comment

Hiii :)

Today's post is the follow up from my Part 1 over on the lovely Jess' blog, Dungarees and Donuts. I wanted to share with you my go-to Day to Night makeup look I've been recently loving for autumn. It's subtle, beautifying and makes use of some of the gorgeous fall colours; goodbye coral!

It's a great one for those office-to-dinner-with-no-time-in-between days.

Now onto the evening additions :) This look is something I would wear to a casual evening event, dinner or drinks (or both?!) with friends/work colleagues is perfect, or anywhere where I want to look like I've at least made an effort but haven't tried too hard! (I've left everything as it was from the day look)


This Illamasqua foundation wears beautifully throughout the day and because I only really applied it through my nose and the tops of my cheeks, I top up and apply a little more now where I feel I need it. Also for the evening, I like to get a little more "targeted glow" (no mirrorshine forehead please!) and so apply the Topshop Glow highlighter in Polished to the tops of my cheekbones. I usually dislike this highlighter as it gives a rose gold look to the skin which some of you may like, but actually it ties in quite nicely with the rest of the makeup.


Using the daytime eyes as a base, I take Coastal Scents shadow in Rich Walnut (Bourjois' Colour Edition 24H in Prune Nocturne is a good alternative/dupe) and blend that (pretty messily) onto my lids before topping up on the Avon highlight from earlier and a little more liner to make the eyes slightly more dramatic. I also take some of the Rich Walnut under the eyes and apply mascara to my lower lashes too. Finally, I take some dark brown shadow through my brows to strengthen them a little: it's funny how stronger brows changes your look!


Same product as before, this time I work it into the lips to create a stain and a gorgeous rich tone. Finish off with the lipbalm on the opposite end and voila, lips done!

In fact, that's the look done!

Hope you like and have an amazing day :)


Dehydrated Skin + Product Review: Laneige Water Bank Essence


Hiii :)

(I apologise in advance for the length of this post.. )

So today I have a review from my Korean skincare haul; the Water Bank Essence by Laneige, but before I go into my review, I wanted to do a quick 101 on dehydrated skin which is what this product is aimed at.

Dehydrated Skin

Dehydration is a pretty common skin condition that I don't think is well enough catered for. It's really easy to confuse dehydrated for dry skin and I've heard people say that they've used oil to combat dehydration: very debatable and a mistake I have made myself! With regards to skincare, dehydration (derived from the Greek "hydro") = lack of water, dryness = lack of oil.

It's important to identify the problems with your skin so you can take steps to correct them properly :) It will also save you time, effort and money on products or remedies that aren't actually tackling your skincare ailments! (which I have learnt the hard way! haha)

What makes it really confusing is that dehydrated skin can be simultaneously dry, oily, combination, sensitive, acne-prone, really anything. I had dehydrated, combination skin myself and it took me a while (doing a lot of research and seeing professionals) to recognise the signs and do something about it!

So how do you know if you have dehydrated skin?

♥ Visiting a dermatologist (or even better, more than 1!) is a pretty reliable method as you'll be getting their professional opinion. However this may not be possible for everyone and there are other things you can check yourself :)

♥ Foundation going patchy throughout the day or a foundation that previously looked great that these days doesn't settle well on your skin anymore can be a sign of dehydrated skin as your skin tries to absorb the water from your makeup because it's lacking in water itself!

♥ Skin that feels really confused and both dry and oily. Your body is really smart. If your skin is losing water and feeling drier and dehydrated, it may try and compensate the loss by producing more oil.

♥ With a flat hand, pinch the skin on your knuckle. If it takes a while to sink back to it's normal position, you may be dehydrated. (This is sometimes called skin turgor if you wanted to take a look yourself.)

There are some really good videos and literature that talk about dehydrated skin if you want more information, I do apologise if I've sounded a bit lecture-y in this post but it's something I feel really passionate about!

Video by prominent beauty writer and journalist Sali Hughes here,
Caroline Hirons' excellent blog post here
and skincare expert Rene Rouleau's great article differentiating dry and dehydrated skin here

but now onto the review :)


"A 24-hour long-lasting moisture essence that contains mineral water for skin regeneration and Water Pump System for moisture circulation to safeguard skin moisture and hold it in to leave the skin moisturised and smooth.
Instantly dampens the skin with ample moisture and forms a natural moisture barrier on the skin surface to protect the moisture that is in the skin.
Contains chestnut extracts and seaweed extracts to enhance keratin turnover to fight roughness and energizes the skin for a smooth and healthy texture."

(sounds amazing right?!)

First impressions

It's such nice packaging! It comes in a blue-gradient glass bottle with a pump (yay!) which holds 60ml of product. It's lightly scented with a really pleasant "skincare" scent? I guess it smells ever so slightly floral? (I'm really bad at describing scents!) The serum comes out of the pump as a viscous, white blob and when you begin to rub it into the skin it turns clear and spreads across the skin super easily.


The first time I used this product, I applied it onto my skin in place of my regular night serum, and when I woke in the morning, I saw an instant improvement! My skin felt and looked plump, radiant, hydrated and smooth! I've been continuing to use this every night and it keeps my skin looking and feeling great :)

I picked this up from Yesstyle for £24 but you can check out this post to see where else to get Korean/Asian skincare :)

Overall I think an amazing serum for £24 that's specifically for dehydrated skin is a must have for my collection.

What's your favourite serum??? I would love to know :) Hope you're having an amazing day :)

Budget Autumn/Fall Lips :)


I've seen quite a few posts on all the gorgeous fall lip colours that are around at the moment, MAC Rebel being a prominent one!

Just a quick post to introduce to you guys some of my fave fall lips. I thought I would show you a few lip colours from my collection that are great for autumn/winter and are super affordable!

From left to right: 

1. Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in 170 Alarm £4.99

2. MUA Lipboom in LMK £3.00

3. Collection Gothic Glam Lipstick in 3 Revenge £2.99

4. Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain in Forbidden £7.99

5. Une Sheer Lips Balm in S17 £1.99

The Revlon lipstain is not your standard fall colour; a 90's style brown which doesn't sound amazing but it looks great on the lips! I will doing followup posts including this lipstain so check those in the near future :) 

MUA LMK / Rimmel Alarm / Collection Revenge / Une S17

Rimmel's Alarm is a gorgeous red, which is a little predictable but who could resist wearing red in the fall!

MUA's LMK comes with a glittery pink lipgloss on the opposite end but the lipstick itself is the most gorgeous, dark, vampy purple. The colour comes out a very dark oxblood and works perfectly with MAC's Currant lipliner (which I seem to have misplaced! I was looking for it for this post :/) I tried to apply this lightly so you could see the colour!

Collection have introduced 3 new colours in their Gothic Glam collection this fall and this was my choice colour! The lipsticks have a gorgeous texture and are really wonderfully pigmented, you can easily apply straight from the tube, in 1 coat, and be good to go! I got mine at Superdrug and they are so affordable at only £2.99! (Again, I tried to apply it lightly so that you could see the colour! It's very much buildable though to get a more dramatic and vampy colour, with 2 coats it comes out more of a red/burgundy tone than the MUA lipstick which comes out more dark/purpley. )

Lastly, UNE (which I believe is part of Bourjois) have these gorgeous sheer lipbalms which come in an amazing range of nude colours, but the darker ones work so well if you want something a little more subtle this autumn. I picked mine up at Fragrance Direct for a measly £1.99! They have a number of other inexpensive beauty products so it's well worth checking it out! In the picture it really just looks like a nude but I think that's partly due to quite bright lights :)

Une S17 / MUA LMK / Rimmel Alarm / Collection Revenge / Revlon Forbidden

What are your favourite lip colours this autumn???
