Beauty Favourites

YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick in 47 -
I love the colour - it's my perfect nude with brown and pink tones. And the formulation is very moisturising and pigmented.

L'Oreal Miss Baby Roll Mascara -
Probably my new favourite mascara or is very close to being my favourite mascara. It curls as well as lengths and add volume.

L'Oreal Perfect Slim Eyeliner-
This is my combo with the mascara - its a great dupe for the Kat Von D Trooper Line.

 Clean and Clear Dual Action Oil-Free Moisturiser - 
which is a great moisturiser and this moisturiser has really helped prevent spots.

Other Favourites

Pretty Little Liars -
I love this programme a lot and its back for the last season. and whilst writing this post -I'm watching the latest episode. It's too good and tense. I don't want it to end but I'm glad it is.

Top 4 Spring Lipsticks

Hi chappes,

Today I wanted to share my 4 favourite lipstick for the spring time. I don't change what lipsticks I wear that much but in spring I go for more pink toned lipstick or slightly brighter one lipsticks.

1. YSL Rouge Volupte in 47 Lipstick -
A super moisturising lipstick. It has a lovely soft shine finish, and it's something subtle. And shade 47 is a good everyday shade.

2. Charlotte Tilbury 'Kidmans Kiss' Lipstick -
It's a great rosy pink shade slightly brighter than my other lipstick. I love the pigmentation and formula.

3. Tanya Burr 'Picnic in the Park' Lipgloss-
A lovely pink everyday shade - it's a really nice pigmentation and I  really like the formula.

4. Rimmel Kate Moss 054 : Rock and Roll Nude - 
It's a good nude shade and again its a pink toned (i think there is a theme of lipsticks I like in spring; PINK!!)

Hope you like this post.

Please comment your favourite spring lipsticks and please follow.

Brows On....

Hi chappes,

Today I wanted to share my favourite 3 favourite brow products. Recently I decided to grow out my fringe which means my brows will be on show so I have to get used to filling them in everyday whilst doing my makeup. So I thought I would share the products I have picked up which are really easy to use especially for brow beginners like me! 

1. Tanya Burr Perfect Brows Palette - 
This is great for travelling and on the go . As it the palette has 4 shade, three brow colours pebble, chestnut and hot cocoa. And then a highlight shade for the brow bone - fairy cake. The kit also comes with an angled eyebrow brush and a pair of tweezers, which has her signature on. 

2. Seventeen Brow Pencil -
This really affordable pencil is really great for a natural brow. And its the perfect shade for me and I like how there is a spoolie on the end so you don't need another brush it's 2 in 1.

3. Benefit Gimme Brow - 
I picked up this brow gel in the summer when it was in the Glamour magazine. Unfortunately it slightly dark but its perfect if you take most of the product and just applied the gel. I probably will buy one in my shade when this runs out.

I would also recommend the Soap and Glory Brow Archery  but my sister has taken it to uni!

Hope you like this post.

Please comment your favourite brow product as would love to try some more.

My 3 Makeup Must Haves For Spring

Hi chappes,

Today I wanted to share my 3 makeup must haves for spring 2017. As spring is a transitional season you can use seem wintery makeup as well as summer makeup- especially in England as the weather is so predictable.

1. Waterproof mascara - 
Spring is full of blooming flowers which does mean lots of pollen so if you have hay fever - waterproof mascara prevents panda eyes 

2. Foundation with SPF - 
It starts to get quite warm, hot and windy SPF is also needed as we don't want sun damaged skin or sun burn. Most foundations or bases have SPF now which is good.

3. Setting Spray -
In summer you don't want your makeup to sweat off (bit grim) so I want my makeup stay one especially on holidays with photos.

Hope you like this post.

My New Favourite L'Oreal Paris Eye Combo!

Hi chappes,

Today I wanted to talk about my new favourite eye combo - L'Oreal Precise Slim Eyeliner and L'Oreal Miss Baby Roll Mascara. I went into Boots the other day and there was the new mascara L'Oreal Miss Baby Roll and a 3 for 2 offer. So I needed a new eyeliner,  I wanted to try the new mascara and I wanted to try the fixing mist but I will write a review on that soon.
Over the last week I have been loving the eye combo of L'Oreal  Precise Slim Eyeliner and L'Oreal Miss Baby Roll Mascara. So today I wanted to write individual reviews on the eyeliner and mascara.

L'Oreal Miss Baby Roll Mascara

 This mascara is great for mega volume, curl and all-day hold. It makes by lashes look false - in a good way. 
The brush is really interesting but it gets all your lashes.
 It's also great that that this mascara comes in a range of colours - I only had the original black but there are also ones with colour.
The packaging is really cute with the pastel pink and blue lid.

L'Oreal Perfect Slim Eyeliner

I heard a few youtubers rave about this eyeliner and my last one was ruining out so I thought I would pick it up to try. It's UH-MAZ-ING - highly comparable to Kat Von D Tattoo Liner which is my favourite eyeliner. The tip makes it really easy to get a really thin line as well as a wing. And the formula is really long lasting as well as being opaque black.

Together these two products are great together - the eyeliner creates a long-lasting opaque and the mascara great long, mega volume lashes.

I would highly recommend both of these products.

Affordable Makeup | The Under £15 Edit

Hi chappes,

Today I wanted to share my favourite makeup items which are under £15 - I was inspired to write this post from reading Jasmine Talks Beauty version which I would highly recommend to read.

Face and Base

Especailly in the summer I love the Rimmel Fix and Protect Makeup Primer - as its a great primer and has SFP.

My FAVOURITE Foundation,Revlon Colourstay Foundation- It has a lovely medium-full coverage which leaves a lovely flawless finish. It doesn't need much blending and it has a wide variety of shades and it has 2 sorts of formulas - one for combination/oily and normal/dry. The coverage is also great for covering decolorisation and blemishes.

Collection Lasting Perfect Concealer - Great coverage as it covers 
spots as well as under eye circles.

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder - This powder is great at keeping my makeup on all day and as it has no colour there will be no orange line around my face! ;)

To bronze and sculpt my face - on my cheekbones, down my nose and on my jaw line, I use the Rimmel Bronzer in Light, Matte. It’s a great natural shade - not orange toned and is quite subtle which is great for everyday.  

I picked out 2 highlighters - Tanya Burr cream highlighter in 'Forever Summer' and Collection Shimmer Brick in 'Pink Bronze'. They are both gorgeous highlighter its such if you prefer cream or powder.

Eyes and Brows

Maybelline Colour Tattoo in 'Creme de Nude'- This is a lovely eye primer - it covers any decolorisations on the eyelid. As well as helping your eyeshadow stay on all day without it creasing.

Rimmel Magnif'eyes Eyeshadow Palette 'Keep Calm & Wear Gold' - This  is a lovely palette for the go and the shaded are lovely and pigmented. And it has a range of shades, I also love the mirror this makes it perfect for travel.

L'oreal Super Preise Eyeliner - This is a new favourite, the tip is really good at creating a thin line and for me a wing.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara - My all-time favourite mascara is in here - I just couldn't resist mentioning it yet again! It's just amazing at giving length, curl and separated volume. It just makes my lashes look their absolute best. 

L'Oreal Paris Miss Baby Roll Mascara - This is a new mascara which I love - it a great contender in beating Maybelline Lash Sensation (which is saying something) it adds great volume and length.

Tanya Burr Brow Palette - The palette has 4 shade, three brow colours pebble, chestnut and hot cocoa. And then a highlight shade for the brow bone - fairy cake. The kit also comes with an angled eyebrow brush and a pair of tweezers, which has her signature on. This also has a nice square mirror perfect for travelling.

Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara- is great for a natural brow look as you just have to brush through and go! 


Rimmel Kate Moss Lipsticks - I could rave for hours about these lipstick. The formulations and pigmentations are AMAZING!!!

L'Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick - The formulation and the pigmentation are great! JLO's Nude is my go to. 

NYX Lip Lingerie - These are probably my favourite drugstore liquid lipstick formulation. The colours are gorgeous and they are long wearing.

I hope you like this post and I hope it may help some of you. And I would highly recommend all of these products and they are such a good price for the quality. And your can find them at your local Boots/Superdrug or Drugstore.

3 Simple Ways to Help Clear Skin

Hi chappes,

Happy Easter! I hope you all have a great day and don't eat too much chocolate. Today I wanted to share 3 simple things I have stuck too recently to help clear my skin. I do have to admit my skin wasn't too bad to begin with but one of my thing this year was to get into a good skincare routine to help any acne/spots that I get. As I'm a teenage girl do acne/ spots are probable.

1. Make sure you take your makeup off properly before bad - 
One time   I forgot to take off my makeup and the next morning my skin was rubbish and felt horrible. So every night I make sure my face is completely clean with my Garnier Micellar Water or Nivea Cleanser.

2. Use a face wash -
I've started using the Clearsil face wash recently after cleansing and I think this and the next step have really helped my skin. The face wash would get rid of any dirt or makeup still on your skin and also makes your face still clean and soft. And the added benefit of helping with spots and redness is a bonus.

3. A good moisturiser - 
After cleansing and the face wash I finish off my skincare round with a good moisturiser at the moment I love the Clean and Clear Dual Action Oil-Free Moisturiser. Which is a great moisturiser as well as helps prevent spots. And it being oil free makes it great for all skin types.

These 3 simple tips have really helped - and I hope it may help one of you. As I believe in quality than quantity, so I would prefer to use a few products than hundreds as I have sensitive skin so it easily reacts to some products.

Hope you like this post.

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick in '47'

Hi chappes,

I'm back - sorry I haven't posted for a bit, I've been away in Iceland on a lovely holiday with some friends.

But today I wanted to talk about my new lipstick which I picked up in Duty Free at Gatwick with is the YSL Rouge Volupte in 47!!!!! I have wanted one of these lipsticks for around about a year and when I saw it duty free at £21 instead of £27 I had to pick it up.

For a start the packaging is GORGEOUS the gold with YSL label band around the middle. The formulation is amazing with the: 

> Moisturizing action : Hyaluronic acid microspheres seal in moisture and prevent lips from drying out.
> Antioxidant shield : Pomegranate and rice combat free radicals.
> Protection and Extreme comfort : Emollients make the lips soft and smooth.

> Intense shine and Luminous colour : Candelilla wax combined with silicon oils sheathes the lips in a shiny film coating that enhances the colour.

And I also love the colour - it's my perfect nude with brown and pink tones. It also has a really nice smell - quite fruity and berry And I would recommend it and I would love to try some more of the lipsticks in this range.

Hope you like this post. And thank you for your patience over the last few days.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

Hi chappes,

I have previously written a post on the Garnier Oil Infused Micellar Water but I have never written one on the original Garnier Micellar Water. And since my Oil infused one has run out I started using the original again. 

To be honest I prefer the packing of the original well for a start its PINK- well thats the main reason I prefer. And the limited edition packing is Cute!
 And its create for all skin types which is great for me as I have combination skin - oily T -zone, dry one cheek and the other cheek is normal (quite weird).

This micellar water is also convenient as you don't need to wash your face so you can clean your face in bed. And it's sooo much better for your skin then wipes due to not drying out your skin.

The clasp on the bottle makes it really safe to travel with which is nice. As it's horrible after a long day travelling to find your cleanser as leaked all over your makeup so having it travel friendly  is too useful.

I would highly recommend this micellar water.

New Look Highlighter Fan Brush Review

Hi chappes,

Today I wanted to write about the New Look Fan Highlighter Brush - I have recently got into highlighting  but I didn't have a proper brush to apply it with it. So when I recently went to New Look and saw this brush for £3.99 i had to pick it up and try it.

For a start the black, silver and white packaging makes it look more expensive then it is. And the fan bristles are really soft for applying highlighter.

I uses the brush to apply my highlighter to the top of my cheekbones, tip of the nose and the cupids bow. The brush is really good at transferring the product - it could be better at blending. But it's really good for the price.

I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a cheap highlighter brush and I would love to try more New Look brushes.

Hope you like this post.
