A cheeky Haul // Beauty Bay

Hello darlings.

Today post is a sneaky little haul! This time it is from Beauty Bay. I've never ordered from the company/site before but while i was breastfeeding i was scrolling through facebook and it came up so i had a browse though the website and i found so many products i wanted! But sadly i'm not made of money but i did pick a couple of goodies. This are all products and brands i haven't tried before, either i haven't heard from them or i didn't know you could buy them in the UK without getting horrible shipping/customs charges. 
First up i picked up the Jordana 2 in 1 foundation and concealer (£5.00) this caught my eye as it was only £5! and i'd never tried a two in one foundation ad concealer before. I chose the shade fair beige as it was the lightest shade, It says maximum coverage so when i've tried it i will do a post on it as i will do with the rest of the products too. 

People have always raved about Mophe brushes so i just had to try one. Mophe R5 contour brush (£8.00) is the brush i picked to be my first one, i choose this brush as i'm obsessed wit contouring and highlighting at the moment so this one appealed to me and also the fact its rose gold!

Carli Bybel Palette (£18.00) (now on offer!) This was the main reason i made this order, i'd waited so long to try this palette, i'm so happy i found somewhere in the uk that stocks  it without all the custom charges. Its so beautiful and a great travel palette.

LA Girl pro concealer (£5.00) This is a blogger favourite so i just new i had to try it, it was only £5 so its a great budget option and they have a great shade range! i think they have about 28 colours, which is crazy. So you're bound to find your shade. 

Lastly The Ordinary serum (£5.00) (no longer on their website or out of stock) This product intrigued me i keep hearing good things about the Ordinary products. The main reason i choose this product was on the review a lady mentioned that it helped reduce her acne scares, so i thought for £5 why not try it on mine. I have yet to try it and i don't like the smell of it. But i will let you know! 

Video where i talk more in depth and swatch them! 

I'd love to know have you tried any of these products?
What should i order next?

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?
