Ebay finds!

Hello everybody!

I haven’t done a beauty post for a while so i thought i’d do one today and since i purchase two items recently i thought it would be the perfect chance to do a post.

I’ve seen a lot of ebay find videos on youtube and they were quite popular, hopefully you guys enjoy my blog post! I purchased an eye shadow palette and four eye make up brushes, both of the products i am very pleased with. Anyways let’s get talking about them!

Okay, so the first item was this amazing 120 colour eye shadow palette. Now, unfortunately the postman did not read the fragile sign on the parcel and literally chucked the parcel through the letter box making two colours smash 😦 but i fixed them! I got the more neutral toned palette but you can get another, very vibrant version full of all the colours in the rainbow if you wish! This one was only £5.00 which i thought was amazing for the amount of colours you get, the quality is amazing too! All the colours are very pigmented and there’s both matte and shimmery colours! I’m really looking forward to see what looks i can create with this one!

The other item i got was these beautiful rose gold eye brushes, with white and pink hair. I am in love with these brushes, i love rose gold things and these brushes are just so pretty! And for the cheap price of £1.58 too! i was amazed! They feel good quality too, they’re soft but not too soft, the small one are a bit tougher which is exactly how you’d expect them to be. I really can’t wait to use these to create some pretty eye looks.

Hope you guys enjoyed my post, if you want the links comment below and i will send them too you and if you know of any good ebay bargains on make up then feel free to comment the links to me! I’m looking for a set of matte liquid lipsticks next!

Product Review:Flawless Palette by Make up Revolution

 Hey guys! Happy Monday! Hope you’re all doing well and if your win school/college I hope you’re coping with exams well! 🙂

 So here it is, my review post on the Flawless palette by Make Up revolution! 

 I got this for Valentine’s Day from my boyfriend and oh my goodness I’ve not stopped using  it! It’s so pigmented and varies from light colours to dark shadowy colours so you create some amazing looks! There’s also a very shimmery shade 4 in on the top row from the left, it’s the most pigmented, it could be used as an eye highlighter honestly it’s gorgeous! My favourites for when I got it were the coppery colours but now I like the golds and shimmery Browns! 

 I would definitely recommend this product and it’s affordable too! At only £8 I think! You can buy it from ether super drug or here … Make Up Revolution

 The only problem I would say is that the formula for some of them is a little creamier I tho k because my copper shade doesn’t crumble when I use it, it just goes shiny and smooth and doesn’t go onto the brush well…not really sure why! Also some of the colours need to be tested before use because they come out a lot darker than they look, but other than these minors I would say it’s a very practical and affordable product! 

Thank you for reading, I hope it’s given enough research for you!

BUT i can assure you i am back and i will be posting again! Starting with the review post of the Flawless palette by Make up revolution! It’s fabulous i highly recommend!

So goodbye until the next post!

Product Review: Garnier Cleasning Water

10169115

Hello everybody! It’s me again, i thought this week i would do a product review, exciting huh? So basically i’m constantly using wipes to remove my makeup (gasp!) and it makes my skin really sore after a while, I went into superdrug a few days ago and picked up the Garnier Cleansing Water. Now it’s my holy grail of cleansers, it’s so easy to use, all you need to do is put a little bit on a cotton pad and wipe away and voila! No rinsing under water. The best part i found was that the make up comes of so easily so you don’t need to scrub until your face is red raw, it also hasn’t affected my skin in any negative ways either! No breakouts, no sensitivity, nothing! How brilliant is that? If you have dry skin they have another one for that too!

Honestly I would suggest this product to anyone, it’s a real must have! Check it out for yourselves! 🙂

Make Up Revolution Mini Haul!

Hello! My package from Make Up Revolution finally arrived, yay! I’m so excited to do this post and share the lovely things a got! I didn’t do swatches for these because some of them were gifts but if happy to do some at a later date!

Okay, so i ordered the Make Up revolution Ultra Professional Collection 2016, this was £10 for 12 items and i have to say i am very happy with it!Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset

The first thing I took out was my three black and rose gold brushes, two for eye make up and one for the face. The eye ones are E101 and E103 and the face brush is F105, i love them so much they’re so soft and i can’t wait to use them.Processed with VSCOcam with a5 preset

I then pulled out the palette, it doesn’t have a specific name but it has so great shimmer colours, from the brown sort of smokey colours to the vibrant colours you can probably find in the unicorn or mermaid palette. Theyre all very pigmented. i’m excited to play with these!

(sorry for the reflection in the image)

The face products that came with the collection was the ultra pro highlighter and a small contouring palette. The highlighter is gorgeous, would be such a nice product to work with, and the palette has a bronzer, blusher and small highlighter. I believe the one i got was for fair to medium skin tone!

I was very excited when i realised the other two eye products were a liquid eyeliner and a focus and fix eye primer. I’ve wanted to have an eye primer to see how it would help my eyeshadow looks and this one works quite well, i’ll have to let you know properly at another time because i’ve only tested on swatches! The eyeliner was a plus because, lets face it..a girl can never have too many eyeliners.

Finally from this collection, the lip products! I got two lip glosses, one sort of hot pink colour and and more sheer nude pink colour, both very glossy but not sticky! I then also got two lipsticks, a gorgeous read and a nude shade. I would give you the names but it appears they don’t have any. I must also add that they smell soooo good, they smell like sweets almost..i’m not really sure what but they smell good!

I did order some extra bits (only 2) the first is my favourite actually, its the liquid lacquer from the salvation velvet collection, in the colour black heart. It’s like a deep purple and it look soo nice! I also love the packaging because it’s different from all the other bits! I also got an eye dust, in the colour Antic. Let me tell you that this is so pigmented and gorgeous, it’s a sort of dark grey, with light grey and purple tints in it, must try it!

So this was my Makeup Revolution Mini Haul, i hope you guys enjoyed it, i’d recommend this brand to anyone, it’s super affordable and most of their products and such good quality (can’t say all because i haven’t tried them all!).

I also hope you like the header, I’ve started using a website/app that allows me to make them so each post should have one and hopefully look better!

Saturday Catch Up

Hello everybody! Sorry I’ve been a bit absent, I’ve had a LOT of stressful things going on! I thought I’d do a little catch up post so yeah!

I had my interview for my Uni course yesterday and I don’t think I’ve ever been so nervous! It’s been stressing me out because I wanted to make sure I had all the right stuff for it. I was worried that if I chose the wrong pieces of work then it would decrease my chance of getting in. Although they said it was a really good interview, I still had my doubts and then that leads on and activates my paranoia where I become sad because I don’t think it’s gone well. 

I think the most important thing to do in this situation is to just stay positive. Keep a positive mind because you don’t know what will happen, and it’s also a much healthier way of thinking. I have to keep telling myself this because,I don’t know my brains is just full of negativity sometimes. 

I also FINALLY got the email to say that my make up revolution delivery has been dispatched (YAY). Baring in mind their policy is that it takes 5 working days to be delivered..well mine was 10 so I was extremely happy to receive that message, as you can imagine! So that means that a mini hail should be up soon, when my package arrives! 

So yeah! This was my little post for you guys, what have you been up to? Comment below!

Until next time!

A little bit of self talk

Hello, so today’s post is something that I would write in my journal but I thought I’d post it on here just incase, I don’t know someone else feels the same and wants to know they’re not alone or just want to have a insight on me and how I feel day to day. It’s nothing major it’s just I have a lot of negative thought towards myself. I’m going through a time where I’m really lacking self confidence, In me as a person, in my body and recently my blog. 

I’m never feeling like what I do is good enough and that I’m going to fail, even if everyone around me is telling me different. It’s not an attention thing like it’s really not. 

My weight and body is something I’ve had a problem with for as long as I can remember, don’t get me wrong I never judge people on their size I would never look down on someone because they’re not societies view of skinny. But when it comes to myself I’m really self conscious about it, I’ll break down because I’ve eaten a bag of crisps and I think they’re going to make me fat. I’m not fat but that’s how I view myself no matter how much o try not to. 
The lack of confidence in my blog is new. I love blogging it’s one of my passions but lately I’ve been feeling like nothing I post it interesting, no one wants to read it. It makes me sad because I try hard but then I can’t think of anything to write about. I hope i am writing interesting stuff for all of you. I like it when all comment so I can interact with you all. 
All I want to say it that having no self confidence is something that is a real struggle in my life and anyone else’s who has it too. They are days where you feel confident and it’s not necessarily a constant thing but when those days hit it’s hard. 
Sorry for the negative post, I just wanted to get it out there. I didn’t do this to bring any attention to myself I’m really not like that. If you’ve felt the same as me just know you’re not alone! If anyone ever wants advice, help or just a chat, all emails are welcome at fxshionbusiness@outlook.com I will always get back to you! 

p.s this is my other email because I don’t feel comfortable putting my more personal main email on here yet but both are linked to my laptop and come up as a notification!

My dream job is actually to have my own clothing line, or to be a fashion designer if that’s what you want to call it. I don’t mean I was to be this ultra famous designer whose clothes cost most than a car, i just want to have a successful line 🙂

Oh gosh, now you’ve got me…I have sooo many i could never choose! One week it could be wildest dream by Taylor Swift and the next it could be Oh No by Bring Me the Horizon, i just can’t choose!

   4. Where in the world would you most like to travel to?

Well I’ve always wanted to go to Australia, its been my dream place to go since i was little but all the big spiders and bugs scare the life out of me! I have two others that i recently decided i really want to go to and that New York and Japan!

If you had asked me this 10 years ago i would have said summer because that’s when my birthday is but my favourite season is actually winter, i love the feeling of winter. Though it’s cold, i love fashion in winter ad wearing cozy knit sweater and over sized scarves and drinking tea all the time!

My favourite thing has to be meeting new people and connecting with everyone. I don’t do it for the most reads and likes. I love interacting with everyone!
