Rihanna at the O2! Review

RiRi opening the show!

Last night I went to see the incredible Rihanna at the 02 arena and boy did she put on a show! 

Queuing took hours but it's ok, it IS RiRi after all!

When I found out I saw Rihanna was coming London I made sure I booked my ticket asap - but I needn't have worried. Rihanna is set to play 10 dates at the 02 arena making it the longest run at the venue of any female artist. Good on her!

 Peforming "What's My Name"

RiRi kicked off the show with "Only girl in the world" belting out all her biggest tunes from "Shut up and drive", "Please don't stop the music", "Take a bow" and some of my favourites, "What's my Name" and "So hard".



Rihanna and her dancers performing "So Hard"

Each song she performed with her troupe of male and female dancers was an elaborate stage full of props - at one stage there was even a huge pink camouflage army tank complete with smoke she was blasting into the crowd.

I rarely stand at concerts because of the fear of a.being squashed to death, b.being squashed to death and c.being squashed to death but I thought I would give it a try seeing as it WAS Rihanna after all...

And I am so glad I did because Rihanna surprised her fans, (including me!) and performed on the drumkit for a few minutes right underneath where me and my friends were standing!

Most of all I loved Rihanna’s stage outfits. From the denim shorts and sparkly multi-coloured bra, to the yellow floaty dress with a thigh split, Rihanna’s wardrobe for the concert didn’t disappoint.

So great songs, great stage and great fashion everything you would expect from a concert. Maybe I’m biased, I do love Rihanna after all but what’s there not to love? When it comes to good pop tunes, Rihanna always comes correct. In the words of Rihanna, "Go hard, or go home!"

Accessorize Makeup at Superdrug

                                 Accessorize beauty range

Bloggers have been raving about Accessorize cosmetic range since in launched last year in Superdrug so I was keen to try out the beauty must-have’s that come in five unique themes to choose from.

The beauty range from Accessorize offers bronzer, blusher, nail polish, lipgloss and eyeshadow.  Release your inner rebel with edgy Rock Chic, stand out from the crowd with Exotic Brights, or go cute and classic and opt for With Love. If playful glamour is your look of choice, then indulge in Illusion, or romanticise yourself with the Je t’aime collection.


                                             Voluminising mascara

I’m a bit of a sucker for packaging, if the packaging is designed well then I’m interested!  The Jet Black Mascara tube has leopard print and roses – very cute! It is definitely a volumising mascara, with a larger brush and slightly tapered edges that reach from the root of the lash to the tip for a true “rock star” glamour and volume.

                        Bronzing Block

The Accessorize Bronzing Block Shade powder comes in a cute little box and powder brush. The powder is a swirl of flattering shades of bronze and shimmering pink powders to create a rush of colour for your cheeks.

 Icon Eye Eyeshadow


                                           no.9 Silver Dove eyeshadow
 
If you’re a fan of eye shadows like me then you will love the eyeshadow – definitely my favourite from the brand. The colour transfer is good and is just as bright as it appears in the pot, something some brands lack.  I used the Icon Eye Shadow no. 9 Silver Dove

It is highly pigmented which comes up great on my dark skin and the creamy texture makes it very easy to blend too. And at £4.00 for an eyeshadow it is a worthy price for a good value product. Available at Superdrug now!
