Ever after

Every single MUA palette that i have owned have always ended up finding their way into the bin., the main reason why is because the eyeshadows always shattered and that is my biggest hate in makeup having messy palette because all of the colours just mix in together I just cant stand it. I popped into superdrug the other day and saw they have a new matte palette out and I am such a sucker for matte eyeshadows I just had to get it so I thought that i would give MUA another chance and lets hope this one dosnet shatter on me, at first when I swatched the shadows i was disappointed because the first four in the palette all looked the same when swatched and the others was not that pigmented. When on the eyes its a competently different story they blend nicely and look gorgeous on the eyes. You can make a range of different looks from the palette from soft and romantic to a more dramatic i would recommend you to try this since its only £4 you really cant go wrong.

soap and glory - Cleanser

Just recently Iv gone a bit skin care mad , not because my skin is bad but I guess I just felt like it. Any who ,I just wanted to share how much Iv enjoyed using this product over the pasted month. 

All you have to do is massage in for 30 seconds or so and wash off and it leaves your clean feeling so refreshed and clean. 

Overall I really like this product but I think I love the Ren 
evercalm cleansing milk just a little more as the soap and glory one does feel a little heavy when putting it on but its still pretty good.

Whats you fav cleanser at the moment ?

Long wearing!

With long days at work and university I like to wear makeup which is long wearing because I don't always have time to touch up my makeup, this has made me go on a mission to find long wearing makeup particularly lip products because this is what i touch up the most. By far the best products i have found are from the stay 24 maybeline line. I am aboustly loving these the ones that i have tried at a matte formula so they are drying so I do recommend to put a lip balm underneath them otherwise they will get to dry and go bumpy but if you do put a lip balm on and remove the excess balm that will not happen and they will glide on and last for hours. I think the longest time i have worn one of them without taking it off was around 8 hours and it still looked perfect at the end of the day. they are also so pigmented so a little goes a long way. I have noticed that they work like a stain if you put it on and then decide you do not want top wear that colour you will have a hard time to get the lipstick off because it does stain your lips at the first swipe. these are by far my favorite formula of lipstick i have ever come across and i have continued to repurchase them and i will do in the future as well.

A lush night in

The other day I randomly decided I wanted a lush bath so I took myself to my nearest store and purchased a couple of my new favourite products ! So I thought I would share - 

This was a Christmas product and I haven't yet got around to using this one but its made my room smell gorgeous - Im debating just leaving it on my side haha .  (candy mountain  ) 
This smell like heaven to me !!! Iv heard people rave about it to much and well Im going to join them. If you love sweet smells this is definitely one for you. It only around for Christmas so I shall be going in to stock up before the stop selling it .
This is the marshmallow melt and it smell very similar to the snow fairy , I was expecting lots of bubbles from this one but I was sadly mistaken but it smelt amazing so I will be going back for one of this too . 

Whats are your fav lush products ?

rimmel moisture renew

I was so excited  when i heard that rimmel were coming out with new colours from the moisture renew line. I was so excited because this particular line is responsible for my all time favorite lipstick shade ever which is oxford st fuchsia I am competently in love with that lipstick shade this is the main reason why I was so excited about new colours from this line. I have noticed that they have released the older colours in the new packaging aswell which I quite good because I do prefer this packaging much more I feel like it looks more sleek and sophisticated.

At the time that i took the photos I only owned three I am guilty of purchasing another one a couple of days later. Out of the four I currently own there is one which i really do not like because I find it has a very frosty finish which is called ringa ringa roses and is nowhere near as pigmented as the others. the three that I do like I am so in love with the colours, the formula and everything about them, they lasted around 4-5 hours on me but I do touch up my lipsticks every 2 hours so i keep a bold colour.

Top to bottom: dark night watel-oops!, mayfair red lady, as you want victoria and ringa ringa roses

new brand alert!!!

Well to me anyway this is a new brand i only found out about it a couple of weeks ageo the brand is raw skincare. This is such a affordable brand i brought a couple of face masks from them which are at the amazing price of £1.99. In this post i wanted to focus on the skin serum, i am so impressed with this product it claims to improve the look of your skin and also to brighten. i use this serum as part of my skin care so after i have washed my face at the end of the night i will put it on and then apply my moisturizer. the serum is made from 100% of natural ingredients i found the consistency of it very thick and greasy on my skin as it is made from natural oils i did expect it to feel like that.

I have currently been using it every night for the past week and i can see such a difference in my skin. i feel
like it has helped to removed any small blemishes i have had on my face also my face has been so smooth and soft. my skin has also been a lot less oily than before i used this product. I have also had a major problem with blackheads for a while now and everything i have used in the past has seemed to make them worst or just stay the same but this serum has dramatically changed the appearance of the blackheads they have faded so much i can hardly notice them now, this product has quickly became my miracle product. The serum is £9.99 and can be purchased at raw skin care highly recommend this product.Go check them out at

                                        What is your favorite skincare product?

L'OREAL EverRiche - Perfect Elixir

So I had high hopes for this product as I love the shampoo and conditioner but I'm little bit disappointed after using it for a while. I thought that it would be a really quick and easy way to make my hair feel that bit better but It turned out to be a bit of a pain. To use this product you apply after your shampoo and conditioner on damp hair so you have to get out the shower/bath to give it a quick dry to apply the spray and then jump back in to wash off. Which doesn't sound that bad but I didn't really see much of a difference when I used it to when I didn't . I'm not saying its a bad product but its just not for me. 

Has any one else used this product ?

Revlon colour burst lipgloss in adorned

I don't normally buy lip glosses, I am more of a lip stick person but I as in boots the other day and I came across the new revlon collection. I couldn't help but to swatch them, I just fell in love with this lip gloss one swipe and it was opaque the lipgloss was not sticky  on the lips, it is a bright  fuchsia with tiny specs of glitter in it and I got around 3 hours of wear out of it, this also made my lips look three times bigger and fuller, I am loving this product will defo have to check out the rest of this line.

Whats in my uni bag ?

 Well I'm finally back to university this week so I thought I would give a quick insight to what I'l be have in my bag to keep me going thought my uni days. 

A good bag is at the top of my list and I love my Cambridge satchel. Its the perfect size and amazingly made so that its impossible to break. 

 Nivea creme to keep dry hands at bay. ( I use the big one for my face all the time )
Mini size Dove deodorant making we smell fresh all day. 
Balmi lip balm which is my all time fav lipbalm as I cant lose it as it always attached to my pencil case of car keys.  Plus is lovely product !

I'm picky about my pens and note books as I have super big handwriting so I need a note book that has big enough lines to fit it on and well paper mate are the best pens and the highlighter have pretty animal prints on them so I just had to buy them !

I wont be keeping the binder in the bag but I thought I would show you how pretty it is anyway. The folder was a bargin at only 99p in sainburys and It was cute and I thought I would keep all my paper work inside it. 

I can be a bit of a water snob and I wont drink tap water so instead of spending out money each week for bottled water I thought I would invest into my bobble bottle that filters tap water and make it taste 100% better and in the long run it will save me pennies .The only down side it you have to but a new filter every 4 months.

So thats all Il have in my bag to university ! What is you school/uni/everyday handbag must haves ?

no no no just NO

 So after seeing the the sunday girls post about all the new products barry m are bring out I got extremely excited . One of the main products were the matte nail polishes but after having a look at the colours painted on nails they really aren't my cup a tea at first sight  . Even looking at the pictures make my teeth go all funny , I know weird right ? So I thought I would have a google search and above being one of the not so nice example and below a more professional go - Im still not a 100% sold however I will be having a try when barry m launch the range to give it a fair go .

My opinion may completely change once Iv applied my first coat but right now Im really not to excited.

These pictures do not belong to me and were found on a google search*

Seventeen flawless poreless primer

As I have a major pore problem I see myself buying any face primer that claims to reduce your pore size. I personally have never come across this kind of primer before, I don’t see many balm type primers all of the ones I currently own have a liquid consistency . It has a solid texture and the way that I apply it is with my fingertips, the fingers warm it up and it applies smoothly onto the skin. I found the texture of my skin once applied very soft and foundation just applied so smoothly across it. The primer is transparent and doesn't feel thick. It did reduce the size of my pores but it did not make them to disappear, it is better than some primers I have tried. It helped my foundation to last longer than what my usual primer does. I would highly recommend this product and it is also very affordable.

                                                          Seventeen flawless poreless primer £5.99

Heaven in a bottle


For the past couple months my hair has just been dry and overall just not really nice. So I tried all the lotions and potions and just gave up on the idea of having healthy hair till I could afford a professional to sort my birds nest out. 

This was until I went shopping with my little mum who brought some new clip in hair extensions and was told that to keep them from drying out you need to spray a Aussie leave in conditioner on them. So that night when I got out the shower and noticed I run out of my normal heat protector , I thought what the hell and I reach over  for my Aussie leave in conditioner which I haven't touched since before the start of the year. I then just plaited my hair and went to bed ( I know going to bed with damp hair isn't the best but I was being lazy) I didn't really think much of it at all but when I woke up and took out the plaits to find that the difference was crazy good.

The majority of my hair was soft and glossy, the ends were a lot better but still a little dry but so much better than before. From now on there's no looking back Aussie leave in spray all the way - not only does it work but its smells out of this world amazing and only £4.49 !!! Heaven in a bottle some might even say 

Has anyone tried any different types of the aussie leave in spray ?

Stay matte!

I was so happy to see the Rimmel stay matte foundation in a local boots the main reason why is because it is a matte foundation and I have such oily skin I am always looking for a matte foundation because I really hate having a shiny face. This is a mouse like formula which just glides smoothly onto the face, I personally have the best results when I use a beauty blender. As soon as it was on my face I did fall in love with it and I can see myself repurchasing this over and over again. It gave of a flawless finish, it also covered up little blemishes and gave me a even consistent colour. Its has a light weigh feel with medium to full coverage it lasted all day. Have to say this is one of the best foundations I have found in a while.

A couple months back I got a free sample of the L'oreal EverRiche conditioner in my cosmo mag and I feel in love after using it. It made my hair super soft and airy . So I then went to boots the next day but it weren't on sale, after that I tried alot of shops and it weren't till now that I finally got my hands on it.  So I just got super duper excited and purchased a couple extra items from the range. 

EverSleek Shampoo - £5.99
EverSleek Conditoner - £5.99
EverRiche perfect elixir - £6.99
EverSleek Absolute smooth intense mask - £6.99 
(Its also 3 for 2 in boots so if you want to try them out nows the time !)

They had the whole collection for sale for all different types of hair , so I went for one most suited to my hair type which was the Eversleek for frizzy , overworked hair plus the EverRiche perfect elixir. Overall Im so excited about using them all but mostly the  EverRiche perfect elixir as its a spray that you put on after your shampoo and conditioner and wash out after (minimal effort - thats what I like ), Iv heard nothing but good things about this product so fingers crossed it does what it says on the bottle.

I will be posting a short review on these after using them for a couples weeks so do pop back. 

Any one else tried any products from this new range ?

On a mission

Birthday presents on a budget 

It's my little mums birthday tomorrow and well not being on the wealthy side of life, I was on a mission . I had £30 in my pocket and had a plan to find 1) stuff my mother would use and 2) get as much as I can for my pennies.  

My mum really isn't the easiest person to buy for she has everything she needs and well what is there to get for the women who has everything they already wants.Finally it came to me after many a hour thinking , MAKEUP ! She don't really wear alot as she's already beautiful ,still on the young mum side of life and always busy. So I got to thinking of all the product I could that worked well and required minimal effort. It was also buy one get one half price in boots so I got lots for my money and I also had no7 vouchers to use.

I used a old glossybox to save a bit of money on wrapping paper. Its like my own Homemade Glossybox

 Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara
Rimmel London Stay Blushed! - I must say this is such a good product 
No7 nail polish 
Rimmel stay matte powder 
Bourjois healthy mix foundation 
Maybelline Instant age rewind
Revlon lash potion 

Soap and glory - hand maid ( come in the 3 for 2 offer on mini bottles)
mini simple moisturiser 
mini toni and guy dry shampoo 
Aussie 3 minute miracle conditioner (got this with my boots points )

Something a little extra 

My little sister then joined in and we managed to get her some of her favourite products - 

 So Iv never realised that boots even do makeup bags mainly because I spend most my time in the makeup counters but when I saw this I got a little excited and thought it was so lovely and was only £10 so we had to get it .

The Iwhite teeth brighter which she loves ( Im not to keen I have a really small mouth and they don't fit in and it weren't a great experience ) and she uses them all the time. I got these on p a romo for just £19.99 instead £30 which was a steal . We also got her the insolence perfume which I have mentioned before , that really weren't much as a steal to be fair I think we got robbed it cost us £40.50 in boots but I usually pay around £20 in a perfume shop but we left it to late to complain .

                                          What are you favourite high street products ?
