Oh liquid lipsticks, how I love them. If you read my post on the Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte review, you will see that they have changed the way I think about the traditional lipstick. As I am writing this, I have four tabs open on my browser – (not so) patiently waiting for the current Jeffree Star restock on Cocktail Cosmetics of Rose Matters, Celebrity Skin and Mannequin. That may give you a little hint as to…

I own a fair few pairs of sunglasses now, but most of them I bought on eBay for 99p – which means they’re not really the best of quality and have little, to no protection on the eyes. Little protection isn’t usually a big deal for me as I live in the North East of England and whenever we get sun, it lasts for about five minutes. As soon as Jules B contacted me and…

For over a year now I’ve used Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade and I swore I would never use anything else. It was almost perfect. I could get carved out brows, a colour that matched me and it was long lasting and smudge free. If you’re a glasses wearer, eyebrow smudging is a real issue. I used the Sleek eyebrow wax palette, and my glasses would smudge it half way up my forehead. Not…

I’ve abandoned buying the usual bullet lipsticks, truly given up. I’ve tried almost everything and NOTHING stays on my lips. Ever. No matter what I try or how much I spend, which annoys me to no end. I love Mac lipsticks and I find their colour choice insane, but their mattes are drying on me and incredibly smudgy. The whole liquid lipstick craze has been around for a few years now, but until recently the…

You’d never really think of mixing nail polish with superfoods, would you? Well Nails Inc. did and they’re onto a winner. The new products are all about creating stronger, healthier nails using detoxifying treatment formulas. Nails Inc. invited me to an event in Fenwick, Newcastle. I’d never used anything from the brand before and due to previously working in an environment where I wasn’t allowed anything on my nails, I’d never even had my nails done…

Charlotte Tilbury. A brand I’ve lusted after for years but never been brave enough to take the plunge to buy. Wayne Goss introduced me to this brand after chatting about how much he loves the Magic Cream (mental note; try this one day!) and I just knew it was a brand I had to check out. Wayne is basically the God of makeup to me, I’d trust him with my face entirely. After the Charlotte…

It took me way too long to discover dry shampoo, I think I was around 15 or so. It would have saved me many early mornings having to get up to wash my hair for school. Up until a few years ago, I’d say Batiste was the only dry shampoo in the drugstore that really existed. Now we have Aussie, Pantene, Toni and Guy and now Colab Dry Shampoo by Ruth Crilly – A Model…

I’ve said that in 2016 I want to write posts that are more personal, and really claim  this blog as my own. So, here it is. Why is it that when I see people commenting on other’s bodies I get so offended? ‘She’s too skinny, she needs to eat more.’ ‘He’s so fat, why doesn’t he just lose weight?’ ‘Her boobs are too big.’ ‘She needs a nose job.’ ‘She got her lips done? She…

*These products were sent to me to review, thank you Tropic!* Sometimes I find choosing presents for people rather difficult, especially if they’re picky like me. I don’t think you can do much wrong with skincare and makeup for women, especially not Tropic. Tropic are a guilt free brand, every product is vegan, cruelty free and organic and will please even the fussiest of receivers. But is it good? I’ve had these products for a…

I went a little crazy this week and bought quite a few bits from Superdrug so I thought I’d share these with you, I took advantage of the 3 for 2 offer and the 40% off own and exclusive products & 20% off everything else for friends of staff discount. My friend Emilie has now left working at Superdrug and got a job at Benefit! Congratulations to her. However we’re also kind of gutted because…

I love switching up my eye makeup and it’s something I rarely have time to do. Blending away can take ages and on a morning it’s something I don’t always have time for, so when I have time to really go to town with my eye makeup, I’m very happy! This post is something I’m planning on trying to do quite often as I really enjoyed it. Taking and editing the photos took almost no…
