E.l.f matte lip crayon // Lip of the week #31

Hello darlings.

Sorry i haven't been posting as frequently as i once was, i'm so unmotivated and tired at the moment. Isaac still isn't sleeping through the night and by the time the evening come around and hes in bed, i'm knacked an just wanna get into bed. I'm also feeling very emotional and low, is 6 months post partum to late to be post partum depression? But enough feeling sorry for myself, I think its time for a lip of the week. Today's is a e.l.f product, a matte lip crayon!
E.l.f products can be quite hit and miss, some are really pigmented and great quality and others sadly not. I guess its a production problem? But luckily i got a goody with this product. I picked this Matte Lip Color in the shade 'natural' in Superdrug about a month and a half ago. I've also heard Youtubers and Bloggers rave about the colour 'tea rose' but i swatched it in store and it was far too blue toned for me so i went for the shade natural which was perfect!
I love the packaging, its cute and slick. I always love outer packaging on products they make them look so much more expensive! You feel like you're getting more for your money. These sticks are perfect for my handbag, well lets be honest nappy bag, i rarely carry a handbag these days. I like that it has a colour indicator on the bottom and its pretty accurate. So its good to spot in your collection. 
The texture is really creamy, i applies really well. The nib is perfect for lining your lips before you fill them. The formular isn't drying, its creamy on the lips but does look matte. Its long lasting and wears away really nicely. Overall i'm pretty chuffed with it!
I'd love to know have you tried any of these matte lip crayons?
Is there any other colours i should try?

A highlighter that makes you look like a goddess? // Laura Geller highlighter review

Hello darlings

My favourite makeup products are the moments are highlighters! i can't not apply a little sheen or shimmer to the tops of my cheeks when getting ready in the morning! I think they are so beautiful! i'd choose them over a contour any day. One highlighter i'd completely forgot i had was this Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Gilded Honey. I got it in my Christmas calendar last year and it went in to my makeup draw and it slipped my mind. So after 8 months i'm finally reviewing it. 
The packaging is a bit meh, its quite basic. Its £16.50, so i expected a little more for your money. I only have a small size, but the packaging is the same on the full size (unless this is the full size?) But saying that it is small and compact and goes nicely in your hand bag or travel makeup.

The colour is a very golden colour, not a highlighter colour i would normally use a i'm very pale. This kind of colour normally would suit a very bronzed person, someone who has an amazing tan, which isn't me haha! But it does. I think it really suits me. Its also the type of colour that can be used as a eye shadow as well or add a little to the center of your lips for a little extra! To make you look like a gorgeous bronzed goddess.

The texture is smooth and glides on wonderfully. It isn't powdery or patchy. Its a very beautiful highlighter. 
(Sorry for the quality, i tried to take a picture, and tried to catch it in the light and this was the only decent picture!)

Overall i'm super impressed but the result it gave, i'm not a fan of the packaging but its the product which is more important. You can buy it here for £16.50

This i the first Laura Geller product i've tried but i would definitely like to try more, has anyone got any suggestions?

Simple back to school makeup // Budget friendly

Hello darling!

Its that time of year, everyone is going back to school or college/university. I'm now 22 and not in any form of education (i graduated last year, post) but this is a little tradition on my blog and although this is the first year i'm not going back to school i'd still like to do a little makeup post! So bare with me. This year is also a little different i decided to film it! Check out the bottom of the post for the video! 
I always think a simple makeup look is good for school, something that is quick and easy in the morning (we want our sleep!!) And also something that looks pretty and natural. Products that colour correct, cover up create a little glow and add a little colour! All these products are budget friendly and can be found at the drugstore or online as many pupils/students can't afford high end makeup. Products used:

Base:

Eye Brows:

Eyes:

Lips:


In the video i added a little more of a pink lipstick which was 'pink in the afternoon by Revlon and i added a little white eyeliner by MUA to brighten my eyes. I hope you enjoyed it!

I'd love to know have you tried any of these products?

August Favourites 2017

Hello darlings!

As i write this i'm watching The British Bake Off, whos watching this year?! Or is everyone boycotting it? I'm quite enjoying it, i'd like to hear your thoughts! Today's post is my August favouirtes, i'm not gonna lie i'm happy this month is coming to an end! I'm so ready for summer to be over and for Autumn to come and yes that C word, CHRISTMAS! But don't worry this post isn't a Christmas post.
I don't mention many fragrances in my favouirtes posts, i rarely try new ones. But this one had been sitting on my shelf for many months. The smell of this is gorgeous! Its a beautiful summer fragrance, it lasts such a long time, a couple of sprays fills the whole room. The main reason i've been using this so much this month is because i adopted a kitten! and his litter tray is in the house and i need something to mask the scent. 

Everyone ad their mother has tried and uses this mascara, its taken the world by storm. And i'm one of them who is obsessed, this has to be my fourth or fifth tube. Its gives me everything i want, makes my lashes long, curled, it doesn't flake or smudge, a winner all round!

I don't know if i've mentioned this highlighter in  a post before? I don't know why as this is a gorgeous stick highlighter! Its a proper wow, in your face kind of highlighter. Its very pretty ad long lasting. Definitely good for those Instagram pics!
I mentioned this liquid lipstick in my last post (link) and i raved about it! So its no surprise that it has made it into this months favourite. I'll let you check it out that post and you can read all my thoughts on it! 

No7 Day Cream: £25.00
This is the only skincare product this month. Its the No7 day cream i got in a Christmas set last year from my brother and i've only just cracked it open as i own so many face creams and moisturizers that it takes me a while to work through them!. This is just a really nice bog standard face cream, it does what t says on the tin! Its lightweight and absorbs into the skin quickly. Its smells lovely! Overall a fab face cream! 
Lastly Meet Zeus, he and Isaac are already best buddies. Of course Zeus and Isaac are included in my monthy favourites. But i will be doing a whole separate post introducing Zeus and also Isaac's six month update! Yes i can't believe he is six months old already too! So look out for those in the next week or two.

I'd love to know what are some of your August Favourites?

The best Liquid Lipstick I've tried? // Lip of the week #30

Hello darlings!

I'm back, i've had my laptop in for repair for the last week and a half, i smashed the screen (again) now that i have it back so i'm back in full swing with writing. Today post is my lip of the week, i've tried so many different lip products recently so look out for lots of posts! These Rimmel Liquid Lipsticks are taking the internet by storm! They are all over Instagram, Facebook, Twitter all over social media. So i just had to try one an see what all the hype is about!
The packaging is nice, its plain. Not the nicest packaging i've seen but definitely not the worse. I went for the colour 'be my baby' i always play it safe and go for a nude, its a brown-ish nude. They have i think 14 shades, so great choice, one for everyone. 
(Mummy's little helper! Look at that lil face!)
This is THE most comfortable liquid lipstick i have ever tried! And i don't say that lightly as i've tried and loved a lot. I like the applicator, it applied the product easily and i didn't make any mistakes. I didn't apply a liner before hand but you could if you wanted to. I didn't find it drying at all, it dried down to a matte in a matter of seconds. But it looks good, it doesn't look dry or flakey! Its relatively long lasting, not the longest i've tried but it wears away nicely. It doesn't last through meals, so i did re-apply. 
(Distracting him with Youtube videos while i try and take pictures for my blog) 

Overall i am so impressed with this its not the longest lasting but its so comfortable!! I do think they are worth the hype. There are lots of colours to choose from and i ill be going back to buy many more! 
They are affordable at only £5.99

I'd love to know have you tried any of these liquid lipsticks?
