Welcome back to my blog! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I had the best time spent with my family; it always go too fast! Today I thought I would share with you what makeup I received for Christmas this year, as well as a few bits that I picked up in the sales! As always I am very grateful for each and every one of the gifts that I am going to share with you. I hope that you enjoy this blog post!

1. The first piece of makeup I received was the Jeffree Star ‘Androgyny’ palette. It is a warm toned large pan palette, with a few ‘brave’ shades, such as a blue & green… I can’t wait to play around with some more adventurous looks!


2. The next two pieces I received were also from Jeffree Star Cosmetics; two Velour Liquid Lips. One repurchase of the shade ‘Mannequin’; my all time favourite nude! I also received a new one in the shade ‘I’m Nude’, which is a slightly lighter version of ‘Mannequin’. Already I have been loving pairing these to together! FullSizeRender (82)

3.  Thirdly, I got the Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow; A product I have been wanting to try for so long because it had been raved about so much! It is so pretty!

4. Another product I received that I have wanting to try for a while is the Gerard Cosmetics Slay All Day setting in spray in the flavour ‘peach’. A yummy smelling product that I can’t wait to put to the test!

5. Another repurchased item is the Stila One Step Correct Skin Tone Correcting & Brightening Serum; I love this primer and I am excited to use it again!

7. The makeup tool I was super excited to receive was my original hot pink Beauty Blender and Beauty Blender Cleanser. I already am in love/obsessed with it already! I wont be going back to normal sponges any time soon!

8. From America my brother and sister-in-law got me two items from Sephora; The Winter Magic palette, and the Sugarcoated lipgloss collection. Both surprise presents that I was thrilled to receive!


9. In the sales I also purchased a few makeup gift sets; Firstly I got the Read my Lips colour riche lip kit from Loreal… it comes with a nude shade lip liner and lipstick that I look forward to using!


10. From the sale at boots I also got The Colour Edit gift set from French Connection. It contains two matte liquid lipsticks, as well as two lipglosses and 5 gorgeous nail polishes!


11. The final makeup gift set I got is the Millie Mackintosh Couture Beauty Ultimate Beauty Collection. It comes with lots of products; A bronzer, lip liner, eye pencil, lip gloss, eyeshadow palette, face illuminator and an eyebrow kit! I have heard a few reviews about the collection, and as a MIC fan I can’t wait to try all the products!



Let me know what makeup items you received for Christmas! I am looking forward to trying out all of my new products! I will be back tomorrow with a New Years themed post!

Favourite product of the month-January edition.


Welcome back to my blog! I hope everyone is well and having a good week! I can’t believe we are in February already… where did January go!? For today’s post I thought I would share with you my favourite beauty product for the month of January. I plan on starting to make this post a monthly tradition, with a new favourite each time! So, to find out what item of makeup I chose for my ‘Product of the month- January edition’, then please keep reading!

Deciding my favourite product for this month was definitely an easy choice for me … the Makeup Revolution highlighter in the shade ‘Golden Lights’! I am sure that you may have heard the hype about this product by now, as everyone in the beauty community, including Jeffree Star, seems to be buzzing over it! The product is a white highlighter with a gold iridescent shine/ gold reflects that look amazing when they hit the light. Not to mention that it is extremely pigmented, which provides a blinding glow when applied to the high points of the face, but it can also be made to look more natural, or indeed, more intense by building up the product (which is what I normally do). Also, the texture of the product is another bonus, as the gold glitter within the product isn’t too chunky, but it is quite powdering, which I don’t particularly mind as I love the way it looks on the skin, which is the important bit!

Additionally, I think the highlighter would look good on any skin tone due to the high pigmentation and colour/ iridescent nature of the product; I have pretty fair skin, but the gold shine helps to warm my complexion up, whilst the white base brightens my face an makes my highpoints really stand out. I usually apply the product to my cupids bow, the end of my nose, my inner eye corners, underneath my brow bones, and of course, above my cheekbones! This creates a full face glow that finishes off any makeup look every time! In comparison to highlighters I have used in the past, including ones from luxury brands, I have to say this one beats them all. There isn’t much more you could ask for in a highlighter! But, the best bit is yet to come… it only costs £3! Incredible! I definitely think that I need to purchase another one (from Superdrug) as a back up for when my runs out! Although I might not need one for a while as the pan size/ amount of product you get is impressive for the price (10g).

To wrap up my favourite product post for this month, I have to say I can’t recommend the Revolution highlighter enough; I use it everyday and have no plans to stop! Below are some images of the product, both with and without flash, but I would suggest going to your local Superdrug to test it out for yourself! I have also used the highlight in some of my previous posts ( ‘Makeup by me’ and ‘NYE outfit and makeup’), so if you want to see how it looks on the skin/ how it photographs then be sure to check those out!





I hope you enjoyed this post; I am already looking forward to seeing what makeup product will be my favourite for the month of February!

Makeup Haul.


Welcome back to my blog… and another haul post! This time I thought I would share with you what I recently bought from the my favourite makeup site, BeautyBay.com. So, if you want to know what I spent my money on this time, then please keep on reading!

For this online order, I only bought two pieces of makeup ( the rest being brushes etc.); Velour Liquid Lipsticks from the brand Jeffree Star Cosmetics, that were £16.00 each. The first shade I picked was ‘Unicorn Blood’ which is one of his best selling shades, soI am very happy I managed to get my hands on it! It is a classic dark red colour, with his usual pink packaging… definitely a good addition to my growing collection! The next shade I bought was ‘Sagittarius’ which is a cool toned purple from his 2016 Christmas collection. I love this colour for my skin and think it will compliment lots of different makeup looks, I also thought the red packaging was a great touch! I can’t wait to buy more! ( I have been eyeing up his new metallic liquid lipsticks). fullsizerender-23

The next items I ordered were two makeup brushes from the brand Morphe Brushes. The first is a highlighter brush that I have seen a lot of YouTubers use and love; the M501. It is slightly pointed, so perfect to achieve an intense glow! Plus it only cost £6.95, which I think is great value for a makeup brush. The next brush I purchased was the M527, it was slightly more expensive at £14.00, but I have to say it feels so soft and amazing quality! Again, I have seen lots of beauty gurus use this brush for contouring the face, so I can’t wait to give it a try for myself. fullsizerender-22

I also ordered myself a pair of false lashes from Ardell in the style ‘Natural Lashes Demi Wispies’. They look fluttery but still quite natural as the lashes get longer towards the end… I think they will finish off an everyday I look very well! Although I don’t normally wear false lashes, I have heard great things about this brand so for £4.95 I thought I would give them a go!fullsizerender-21

The last purchase I made from Beauty Bay was the Makeup Geek Travel Vault. It has the ‘Makeup Geek’ logo engraved on the metal lid, and is magnetic on the pan inside; I definitely loved the packaging! It will be perfect to keep my collection of their eyeshadow pans in and I look forward to filling it with more! The vault was £14.00, which is quite pricey for a empty palette I know, but it does feel expensive and it was a good investment piece for me!fullsizerender-24

I hope you liked my purchases, and no doubt their will be another makeup haul in the near future… I know, I’m addicted! But I am sure most of you share my passion for makeup and beauty, and might even be as obsessed as me! Let me know! I have lots of ideas for blog posts coming up so keep a look out!
