Spring Lip Colours

Spring is basically almost over and I’m pretty delayed on showing you guys what lip colours I have been wearing but if I’m honest, these colours would look just as good in the summer as well. When I think of spring I always think of very soft pretty pink shades and beiges which is what I’ve been loving this spring. 

I have three colours that I’ve been loving this season although two of them do look similar but they have different finishes. Depending on how I’m feeling or what event I’m going too I can pick between the Urban Decay Cream lipstick in Streak. The finish is actually really pretty and it does just sink into the lips leaving a beautiful subtle pink stain to the lips. This isn’t why I like wearing it though, it’s because it’s a cream finish and it isn’t matte and I love this for general daily wear. 


For when I do want a stronger matte lipstick I like the Mac lipstick in Please Me. I love to wear this with a glam statement but neutral eye look. It’s extremely long wearing and lasts all night regardless of what I’m drinking or eating. It doesn’t bleed at all and just continues to look beautiful and clean looking. 


The final product is in fact a lip pencil from L’Oreal in the shade 302 Bois De Rose. This is infact a lot darker but I think it looks lovely with a mauve eye and cheek. I mostly wear it alone because it does feel heavy on the lip but you can top it with your favourite lip gloss, I like Tanya Burr Lunch Date but this gloss can get very sticky. 

There we have my 3 favourite lip colours this season! What’s yours been?

BirchBox Unboxing // May 2017

In my April 2017 BirchBox I said that it would be my last until October. Little did I know, my payment went out and the May 2017 box arrived. I’m not complaining as it’s a nice little treat but I did unsubscribe from BirchBox and it sort of irritated me that they didn’t follow through. So, now I have cancelled the direct debit, this is my final BirchBox unboxing until I return in October.  

I will admit, this months box really isn’t my favourite ever and I’m probably least interested in these products more than any. Hopefully they will surprise me. However, I love the packaging of this months box. It’s a marble looking box and it’s just gorgeous, in fact I think I’m going to keep this to store things in. 

This months box gives us two full sized products which is lovely. The first is the Marsk Mineral Eyeshadow in Vanilla Frosting. This product retails at £14.49 full sized. I like this product 1. because you get your moneys worth for the box from this product alone and 2. because it actually looks like it would be a lovely highlight as well as eyeshadow. I actually don’t own anything like this so I’m probably most excited about this product than any other in the box. 

I also got the SKIN79 Clean-on 2 Step Nose Pack (full sized) which retails at £2.90 which iS crazy affordable. This product is supposed to de-clog your pores and just refresh your skin. 

Another makeup item that I received is the Doucce Punk Volumizer Mascara which retails at £18 full sized. I’m always keen to try new mascaras and this is suppose to add volume and thickness which is good since I do have quite thin eyelashes. 

I received the Whish Firming Body Cream. This product is £27 full sized and is super good as the brand doesn’t test on animals. It’s supposed to protect and soften skin which is good but it’s essentially a moisturiser. 

Finally, the product that I’m least enthusiastic about is the Kueshi Hair Mask Shine and Volume which is £10.50 for a full product. It’s a basic, simple hair mask but because my hair is so thick I find that these types of products just cling to every strand of hair and does take ages to remove. 

There we finally have the last unboxing. Enjoy!

Favourite Drugstore Brands

Hi guys! 

Today we’re talking about some of my favourite drugstore brands. The drugstore have some amazing brands to offer these days and some that I will forever go back to more than I would with high end products. The variety they have to offer is outstanding and drugstore brands are really trying to bring out an affordable priced product with high end formulas and I’ve found some brands do really well with this. So, keep reading to find out my favourite drugstore brands and why I love them. 

Number 1: Revlon

I’ve been using revlon products for around a year now and I’ve definitely found some killer products that are brilliant and can definitely be mistaken for high end products. The variety of makeup Revlon offer is outstanding and the formula’s are brilliant. Admittedly, as with most brands they do have some hit and misses but overall I genuinely recommend Revlon. My favourite Revlon products is the Colourstay foundation and the Photoready powder. The Colourstay foundation at one stage was the only foundation I would ever use, it’s got such a high coverage and it glides on perfectly. Generally I use my beauty sponge to buff it in and it leaves such a flawless base and they also have a large variety of colour selection to choose from. The Photoready powder is another win for me, it’s fantastic. I’ve not been using this for as long as the foundation but it’s become a must have product for me. I couldn’t live without it. It sits on my face perfectly and doesn’t cake up at all, it’s so lightweight and feels so soft. It also sets my undereye area so well that it doesn’t crease at all throughout the day. 

Number 2: Rimmel 

Rimmel have been a long time love of mine. I bought my first ever makeup product from Rimmel and have loved them ever since. My first foundation was the Wake Me Up foundation and I often go back to it, I’ve been wearing makeup for around 5 years now and this foundation has been one I always return to. However, this is not why I love them. Rimmel is super affordable and the selection has definitely expanded brilliantly. My favourite products from the range are the Kate Moss lipsticks, their beautiful creamy formula, for me is the best in the drugstore and I always head to their range to look for new lipsticks. They last all day and don’t bleed at all, my favourite colours are the 107 for the Autumn/Winter season and 38 for the Spring/Summer season. I’ve never been a fan of their eyeshadow selections at all and some of their mascaras really don’t do it for me but their nail varnishes are also brilliant and as I said above, their foundations really are brilliant quality for such an affordable price. They’re the ideal first foundation for any person new to makeup.

Number 3: Bourjois 

Bourjois have been a recent new love of mine, having been curious to test their products out I finally done it at the end of 2016 and I will never look back. I’ve not tried out everything that I would like to with this brand but I’ve definitely found some amazing products whilst using them. My favourite, go to product from Bourjois is the Radiance Concealer which was my first ever product from them and my go to concealer. It’s amazing, the coverage is outstanding but the best thing is that it’s so brightening under the eyes and super longwearing. I use it to highlight my under eye area, bridge of my nose, chin, cupid’s bow and centre of my forehead and it leaves such an amazing glow to the face. I also love the Black Kohl eyeliner, it’s so good and so easy to blend. It’s actually my favourite pencil liner that I’ve ever used. It’s really longwearing and doesn’t run throughout the day at all. I love to line my upper waterline with this and run it along my lash line and blend it out to create a smokey look.

Number 4: Revolution

If i’m ever looking for a new eyeshadow palette from the drugstore, I always head straight to the revolution stand in Superdrug. They’re the best in the drugstore and are ideal for makeup beginners. They offer such affordable dupes of high end palettes like the Kat Von D Shade and Light palette, as well as the Urban Decay Naked palettes. They’re fantastic, so blendable and buildable. Really buttery and smooth on the eyelid. I love them. I also think the Iconic Lights and Contour Pro palette is outstanding and an excellent dupe for the Nyx contour palette. For £8 an identical dupe to the nyx palette for such a great price. Their contour shades are my go to and I think they’re fantastic for all skin tones.

What’s In My Makeup Bag

My makeup bag changes at least once a month and I’ll add to it if I buy new products that I like. Some of the products that are currently in my makeup bag are quite new and that I’ve been loving these past few weeks. I had realised I have never shared with you what is in my makeup and some of my go to products that have definitely been updated since I first launched my blog. So, since this post is going to be quite long I’ll jump straight into it. 

I’ll start with base products, in my makeup bag I have the Rimmel Insta Fix and Go Setting Spray. I’ve been loving this, I won’t say too much because I’ve got a review coming up about this wonderful little thing. I also have the Maybelline Baby Skin Primer, this stuff literally sinks into the skin and is a dupe for the Benefit Porefessional. I recently purchased the L’Oreal Infalliable Total Cover Concealer palette which includes the green and purple colour corrector which I only use from this palette along with the lightest concealer shade. I don’t use this palette every single day but definitely for evenings and meals out. 

I have a go to foundation at the moment, the Milani 2-in-1 foundation is my one true love. Incredible formula and such full coverage. I also have two concealers the Maybelline Fit Me which is the same as my skin colour to help cover any imperfections as well as the Bourjois Radiance concealer that has been my go to for months, however I am looking to switch this one up so send me your recommendations. 

For powders I have the Revlon Photoready that helps me to stay matte all day long but I also use the Avon HD Finishing Powder which I don’t know if I’m enjoying or not, perhaps I’ll let you know. 

For bronzer, blush and highlight I have been using the Tanya Burr Rosy Flush Cheek palette which I absolutely love and works brilliantly with my fair complexion. I also have to include my trusted Hoola bronzer for contouring, this stuff is incredible and I couldn’t be without it. 


For eyebrows I have been using the Benefit Goof Proof Pencil in shade 4 and the Sleek clear brow gel. I love this combination and my brows always look as I want them to when I use them, whether it be a bold statement brow or natural. 

Since Christmas I have been using the Morphe 350 palette and I can’t leave it. It’s been the best palette for Autumn and Winter shades. Since the spring is coming I’m likely to take this out soon although I’m devastated about it. For liners I have the Maybelline Master Percise liquid liner as it has such a thin tip it allows me to make the most perfect eyeliner. I also have the Bourjois Black Kohl and Contour liner for my waterline. 

I have my favourite mascaras at the moment that are the Too Faved Better Than Sex and the Maybelline Push Up mascara. I like to use the Too Faced mascara on my top lashes and the Maybelline on the bottom, it creates the most beautiful fluttery lashes. 

For lip products I have several just because I can’t help myself, firstly the Nivea original lip balms are my favourite so I have at least 2 of them. I also have the Sleek Matte Me liquid lipstick in Velvet Slipper for my statement says, the Urban Decay Vice lipstick in Streak for those natural days. Lastly I’ve been using the Lord and Berry Lip Crayon in Intimacy for a few weeks now and I love to use it for those days when I have to head out quickly.  

There you have it, this is my entire makeup bag and the products I’ve been loving recently.

My Beauty Wish List

Some fantastic new products have been released recently and I’ve definitely got my eye on a fair few but with my student budget. If I am totally honest, some of these things I’ll probably never purchase as I’ll either go off them or just forget to purchase them when I do have the money, also my budget doesn’t let me buy hundreds of pounds of eyeshadow palletes or lipsticks unfortunately. So, I thought I would share with you guys some of the products that I’m interested in and wanting. 

Real Techniques are known for their affordable and amazing quality brushes and a few years ago they released their Bold Metals collection which was exclusive to Boots. Recently they’ve released their MultiTech brushes which are the higher priced brushes exclusive to Superdrug. These new brushes have been created for mulitple uses, whether you want to contour, use to blend eyeshadows or apply lip products. These are designed to work well regardless of what you’re using them for. I’ve really got my eye on these and will definitely be purchasing a few to try and test them for you.

Next, I’ve had my eye on the Spectrum brushes for a while now and I received a crease brush from Spectrum in my Februrary BirchBox which I have been loving. It’s made me want to try some more of their brushes, hopefully I’ll be able to make an order for some sooner rather than later.

On to makeup, Too Faced decided to release their Sweet Peach Palette again and I think it’s an absolutely beautiful palette and would be gorgeous for the summer. The colours in this palette would be the ideal shades and combinations for my summer in New York and it would probably be the only palette I would take away with me since I think I would be able to make so many looks with the selection of colours. I also already know that I love the Too Faced palettes having already own 5 of their palettes including the Chocolate Bon Bon palette.

I’ve also got my eye on the Anastasia Modern Renissance Palette. I know that so many people rave about this and I’m definitely late on considering this palette. I just think the 14 shades in this palette are beautiful and ABH are known for their high quality shadows. Since I don’t own any products from ABH I’d like to pick this one up as my first as it’s the product I’m most excited about trying. I think the only thing that has ever stopped me from buying this palette is the price but it’s actually around the same price as the Too Faced ones. My fear is probably because I haven’t purchased anything from this brand but since so many people love it, I can’t imagine I won’t. 

Image result for anastasia modern renaissanceThe final products that I’ve been interested in are two lipsticks, I was recently watching a Youtube video by Pixiwoo (founders of Real Techniques brushes) and they we’re discussing their lipsticks. Nic was wearing the Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick in Pillowtalk and Sam was wearing the Clinique Lipstick in Ruby Pop. Pillow talk is a very pink nude with grey undertones which reminds me of the Sleek Liquid Lipstick in Birthday Suit. I really want to get this lipstick because I find that liquid lipsticks aren’t always something I want to wear but I love the subtle pink tones. The Clinique lipstick in Ruby Pop is a bright red but it’s a wearable red unlike the Mac lipstick Lady Danger that I would only wear for evening events because it’s just too bright. However, I do love a red lip with a natural look as it helps to enhance your features slightly more. These two shades are on my definite shopping lists in the near future!

Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation

For Christmas 2016 I received the Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation as a gift from my parents. I had tried a sample portion during the summer of 2016 and I really enjoyed it and had informed my parents as a possible gift idea. So, ever since i’ve been testing it out to see whether it’s actually as good as I remember. Having spent the last month wearing it I’ve realised it’s actually not as good as I remember which has majorly disappointed me. So, since I was having so much trouble deciding whether I actually liked it I had my best friend Megan test it out too on a night out and Megan really liked it. Today’s review is going to be slightly different than usual, this time you’ll have 2 different reviews from myself and Megan. 

Megan has combination to oily skin, the same as me but I do have quite dry skin around my nose. We both wore the foundation on the same night and throughout the night I noticed that the foundation was definitely sitting differently on our skins. For me I found that when it’s first applied, it’s beautiful and makes me look flawless but across the time that I wear it I find that it rubs off around my pores and nose area and really makes my skin look quite gross. Before it starts to move away from my nose I usually get around 3 hours wear time out of it and since it’s the ‘all nighter’ foundation I kind of expect it to last a lot longer for 3 hours. Megan actually really enjoyed wearing this foundation, she found that it didn’t go patchy at all and stayed put around her oily areas. It blended so comfortably on her skin and it literally done as it said on the tin and lasted all night. 

I personally wouldn’t ever purchase this again but I know Megan loves it and would definitely wear this happily. Let us know what you think of it and give us recommendations for other foundations you’ve loved.

Book Review: 642 Things To Write About

I’ve recently gotten back into using these books since I had my cast removed. This week’s book review is slightly different and it’s on the interactive booked called 642 Things To Write About.

I own two of these, the other is designed to write 642 Things To Write About Me. These books are a brilliant waste of time if i’m totally honest. They’re fun, creative and imaginative. I use them as a stress relief and I bloody love to sit down and write about random things. I’ll leave a few examples of the questions below. I got mine from Waterstones for £12.99 each. They are also available on Amazon. Some people like to write in diaries but I personally would rather just use one of these as a way to remove myself from any stressful situations or boredom. I especially use the 642 Things To Write About Me edition when I’ve had a particularly stressful day or if I feel a panic attack approaching. I instantly find relief through writing random things about myself. I also use these to procrastinate, A LOT. I just find them really amusing and fun.

642 Things To Write About:

  • Describe each person in your family with just one word.
  • The person in your life who you’re most jealous of.
  • Study a stranger. Go home and write a tragedy about his or her mother.

642 Things To Write About Me: 

  • Imagine yourself in another century and place. Where would you go? why? Write a scene that places you there, that compares and contrast where you are with where you’ve left.
  • You are a toy. In three scenes, write about who makes you, who buys you, who keeps you.
  • The author Cheryl Strayed had to walk 2,650 miles from Mexico to Canada over the sierra mountains to find herself. What did you have to do?

The people who created these books, The San Francisco Writers’ Grotto seem like the most fun but crazy bunch of people to ever exist. I like them a lot and I have never met them.
