Miss Sporty Perfect Stay Concealer Review

Hi chappes,

Today I wanted to write a review on a new concealer which i have been liking - the Miss Sporty Perfect Stay Concealer.

I own it in the lightest shade which is the perfect shade for me. Its great for covering redness and blemishes but its not very highlighting. So i don't use it for underneath my eyes i use the Collection concealer.

It has a very nice bendable formula and it has great coverage. The concealer also stays in place all day which is great as I hate it when your makeup falls off your face throughout the day.
This concealer is also really cheapest only £2.99 which is amazing. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a cheap concealer which provides great coverage. 

Hope you like this post.

Lancome Lip Lovers Minis Review

Hi chappes,

I wanted dot write a review on 2 Lancome Lip Lover Minis which I got a while ago. But I have never shared them which you.

I have 2 shades:
337 - Lip Lover - a dark pink shade
355 - Framboise Etolie - a berry red colour

I love the formula for these glosses - they are pigmented and long lasting for a gloss. The applicator makes it really easy to apply which I did expect from a brand like Lancome. The packaging is really cute as well as they show the shade at the end and in the middle. I wold recommend these to anyone looking for a nice gloss.

Hope you like this post.

Please comment your favourite gloss and follow X

Maybelline Super Stay 24hr Foundation Review

Hi chappes,

You may have seen this foundation in my everyday makeup routine post but today I wanted to write a review about the Maybelline Super Stay Foundation.

I'm a massive fan of the Revlon Colourstay but I wanted to try some new foundations. And I loved the qualities of the foundation that it was full coverage, 24hrs wear and doesn't transfer. I was also really impressed with the colour range that Maybelline had. I got 05 Light Beige which was the lightest shade - and i don't look orange which is a great start. I do like the coverage - I did think it would have more coverage so thats slightly disappointing but its nice. It does stay on your face a long time - i havent tried for 24 hours but i does one for a while. 
The packaging does feel quite nice and expensive and its in a glass bottle. And it has a pump and a lid which is always nice.

I would reomcmned this foundations - its not my favourite but its still a great foundation.

I hope you like this post.

Covergirl Lashblast Fusion Mascara Review

Hi chappes,

Today I wanted to share my opinion on the Covergirl Lashblast fusion mascara which some of you may have read in my Canadian haul. 

I love this mascara its probably one of my favourite mascaras alongside Benefit Rollerlash and Maybelline Lash Sensational.
Covergirl state that this mascara has a ' fiberstretch formula and oversized brush make every little lash bigger, fuller, longer-looking, and more dramatic' I totally agree :)

It adds volume and length without looking clumpy. Its also really easy to take off at the end of the day. But through out the day it doesnt transfer onto the lid or underneath the eye.

I picked the very black one there is also a waterproof. But I'm not the biggest fan of waterproof due to it being harder to take off at the end of the day. Which lead to rubbing your eyes and them becoming all red - not good.

I would highly recommend this mascara to anyone who can get Covergirl- which unfortunately we can't get in the Uk

Hope you like this post and please follow.

First Impression: Sleek Colour Correcting Palette

Hi chappes,

I've recently purchased this Sleek colour correcting palette after watching Rachel Leary youtube video, which showed how pigmented and easy to blend they are.

Green: Neutralises redness - for concealing scars and blemishes 
Lilac: Neutralises yellow - for brightening sallow,dull complexion
Blue: Neutralises orange - concealing freckles
Rose: Adds radiance and evens out dark spots 
Yellow: Neutralises purple - concealing under eye circles on light skin tones
Orange: Neutralises blue - concealing dark circles on dark skin tones.

I love it - the concealers are so pigmented and the formula is soo creamy. And the concealers cover decolorisations really well, they are soo easy to blend with a beauty blender.
And it was only £7 which is soo much cheaper than buying each concealer separately. 
Using these concealers means I don't have to use as much foundation and concealer so I don't get a caked face :)
The palette also has a massive mirror and its really compacted.
Overall with my first impression is I love it and can't wait to continue use it.

Hope you like this post.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in 'Crush'

Hi chappes,

Today i want to write a review about the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in 'Crush', you may have seen it in my makeup haul from Canada.

This was the first ABH product I have EVER owned it was actually also the first time I've seen a ABH stand. I love the packaging of the with gold eternity signs with the silver lid. And the tube shows the colour of the liquid lipstick with the Abh logo and name.

It's a gorgeous pinky, light beige nude. I do like the formula - I can find it a bit drying. Please comment what you think if you have tried a ABH liquid lipstick.  It is long lasting and doesnt look patchy.

Hope you like this post.

Please comment you favourite liquid lipstick and please follow.

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner Review

Hi chappes,

If you have read my Sephora haul you would have seen I purchased the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper. As i have had it for a bit know I thought I would write a review on it.

To start of with I love this eyeliner - its the best eyeliner I have EVER USED!!!!!

This was the first Kat Von D product I have used and I heard lot of good things about this eyeliner especially from the Youtubers like Emily Canham she mentioned it in her Top 10 Products.
I also really like the packaging with the roses and stars..

Its a black eyeliner and the nip makes it so easy to create a thin line and precise wing. Its also long wearing when travelling home from holiday I had the eyeliner one from around 20-24 hours and it stayed on. But it is really easy to take off with makeup wipes or cleanser at the end of the day.

Hope you like this post.

Please comment if you have tried this eyeliner and your favourite Kat Von D product. And please follow and try and get 333 followers :)

Benefit 'Dew the Hoola' Review

Hi chappes,

Today I wanted to review 'Dew the Hoola' which is a soft matte liquid bronzer. I picked up a sample size in this months Elle magazine. If you are a often reader you will know I love collecting Benefit minis from magazines.

'Dew The Hoola' came in this cute little box with design of the full size range. Which looks very summery and a reminds me of Hawaii :) The product itself is in a tan looking bottle and the product comes out in a pump.

The product itself is gorgeous - it adds a glow as well as a bit of tan colour. I have used it as a subtle contour. You can wear under your foundation which I haven't done but maybe in the future.

Hope you like this post.

Please comment if you have tried them and please follow.

Bath and Body Works Haul Summer 2016

Hi chappes,

Today is a another haul post but this time is for Bath and Body Works. I love this shop this is the other shop i would love it to come to the UK.

I purchased:

 Thousand Wishes Mini Spray
Thousand Wishes Hand Sanitiser
Thousand Wishes 3 Wick Candle
Beach Cabana Mini Candle 
Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut 3 Wick Candle
Sweet Pea Hand Sanitiser 

As you can tell I love the Thousand Wishes scent - it smells SOOO GOOD. Its a blend of sparkling champagne,  crystal peonies and almond creme. Its apparently there most popular fragrances and I'm not surprised.

The Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut candle is for Christmas time. It reminds me of these Cinnamon Pretzels you can get in the Bullring. I can't wait to burn it!

Bring back two 3 wick candles was quite funny as they are quite bulky and big. It has left a bit of a aroma over some of my clothes but it smells so good so I don't mind.

Beach Cabana is a small candle and is very summery. I purchased this before the two 3 wick ones. It has a scent of sweet jasmine, orange blossom and the fresh scent of fluffy white towels.

So now i have candles are basically all seasons. YAY!!!

The hand sanitisers are perfect pocket size and great for handbags and school so we definitely had to pick some up. 
And I wasn't allowed to bring me Zoella spray with me due to my mum fearing it would break. So as soon as I smelt the Thousand Wishes scent I picked it up. I brought 2 minis as it was in a deal with the candle :)

Hope you like this post.

Canadian Makeup Haul ft Sephora and Drugstore

Hi chappes,

I was going to split this post into two, but i thought you would get bored of haul posts. So heres my Canadian makeup half rom my holiday, this is a collective haul with my sister as i thought it would be nice to show a few more products.


Kat Von D Tattoo Line in "Trooper" - I saw this on Emily Canham youtube channel. And i wanted to try a high end eye liner and this one is soo good and its so easy to create a wing with.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in "Crush" - This colour is gorgeous its a soft beige pinky colour, the the formula is not that drying and the colour comes out very opaque. 

Too faced Natural Eye Palette - my sister purchased this as she usually wheres minimal makeup. I've watched this palette and the colours are soo pigmented and are so easy to blend. Perfect for everyday and great for travel.

Benefit Roller Lash Mini - i have owned one of these but they are actually cheaper in Canada so I picked one up. As i love this mascara.

Shiseido Eyelash Curlers - my sister has been looking at these eye lash curlers for ages. So when she saw them she had to get them whilst we all in a rather jet lag ;) 


Eos Lip balm in "Strawberry Sorbet" - I only just found out the flavour i actually just picked because it was pink :)

Covergirl lashblast fusion mascara - American youtubers have raved about Covergirl mascara and i really wanted to try one so i picked up the one which offered both volume and length. And the mascara doesn't disappoint.

The Body Shop Honey Bronzer in 01 - I'm not sure if Body Shop is drugstore please comment what it is. This bronzer in a lovely everyday bronzer which can be used as light contour shade. And is perfect for fair skin tones. 

I love all the products we purchased and i so wish that Sephora was in the Uk. Saying that i would probably be broke but i would still love it in the UK. I have swatched the eye liner, the liquid lipstick and showed the palette to show the true colours as well as showing how pigment the products are. I will in time write full review of most of the item i picked up in Canada.

Please comment your favourite Sephora product and please follow.
