February favourites 2015 ❤

1. Essence long lasting eyeliner – black
After trying every high/low end eyeliner I could think of i found this beauty, it stays in the waterline all day without moving, a must have for anyone who loves a bit of eyeliner.

image

£1.50 from wilkos

2. Sleek blush- rose gold
Such an amazing colour with shimmer, definitely my go to blush, also a dupe for Nars orgasm but only a quarter of the price.

image

£4.49 sleek.co.uk, or selected superdrug stores

3. Mac lipstick- vegas volt
Definitely a favourite for me right now, it seems to go with everything perfectly.

image

£15.50 mac.co.uk, selected john lewis stores

4. Diorshow blackout mascara
I can’t apply false lashes to save my life but with this mascara nobody would ever tell the difference between wearing lashes or not. Totally worth the money.

image

£24.50 selected boots and John lewis stores

5. Collection concealer- light
I’ve only recently started trying to contour and I’m honestly finding this concealer amazing for both coverimg blemishes and highlighting, dual purpose.. Can’t go wrong with that.

image

£4.19 superdrug

6. Chapstick – cake batter flavour
Honestly this is the most beautiful chapstick in the world, it smells and tastes amazing and makes your lips feel soo smooth during dreaded winter months.

image

Unfortunately I have no idea on the price of these as I can’t find this flavour in the UK but most other chapsticks range from £1-2 and are available in all local chemists/pharmacies

*NB. I do not take credit for the above photographs, all can be found on websites where the products are sold. Thankyou x

Laura Geller book of jewels ❤

So I recently completed a swap with a girl called Steph from the U.S this is now our second swap 🙂 and in amongst all the goodies she sent me a Laura geller book of jewels- the jades. It’s the first Laura Geller eyeshadow that I’ve tried so I was definitely excited about it. I don’t normally wear green shades but with the earthy colours to compliment them i think these are just amazing!!

image

There’s 10 shades, 4 of which are matte, 2 are shimmery and the other 4 have a ton of glitter in them, definitely perfect for any occasion 🙂

image

image

L-R: Stone, white-grey colour (matte)
Moss, light olive green colour (matte)
Khaki, deep olive green with gold glitter
Earth, dusky pink-brown colour (shimmer)

image

image

L-R: Jade, emerald green colour (matte)
Vine, mix of green and gold glitter
Jungle, deep emerald green (shimmer)
Olive, mainly gold glitter with a hint of green

image

image

Top: forest, dark brown-black with gold glitter
Bottom: gold shimmer

I would definitely recommend this palette to anyone who likes shimmery glittery eyeshadow and a smokey eye look, I would advise however that you use a primer to get the most out of the colours…

Makeup and beauty swap from Canada ❤

I met Kathleen through a page called international box swap on Facebook, it was her first time swapping so we agreed on a small budget but after a week or so we realised we wanted to buy each other too much so pushed the budget up! We sent mid November and after 2 months mine finally arrived :’) I was amazingly excited when it turned up 🙂

And here it is:

image

She even included a little gift for my little boy, Alfie!! I’ve never tried any elf or milani products and I absolutely love them, I requested a maybelline dream bouncy blush as we don’t get them in the UK and looked soo cute. The bath and bodyworks hand gels are fabulous and are always carried in my bag now 😉 But my favourite by far has got to be the Essie nail polish in after sex, it is the most beautiful colour I’ve seen ?

I’m still yet to try everything else but I’m sure it’s all going to be awesome 🙂

Huge thankyou to Kathleen for all my amazing makeup xxxx
