Collective Superdrug Haul!

Hello my lovelies! Over the past few weeks i have been accumulating quite a bit of makeup products so i thought i’d throw them in together for a haul for you!

Everything in this haul has been purchased by me from superdrug, it is mainly MakeUp Revolution products but there are some MUA and other products too. Let’s get started!

Processed with VSCO

I’ll start with the non makeup revolution products first, I picked up the MUA ‘Undress me too’ eye shadow palette, I’ve swatched a couple of these and I am so happy with how pigmented they are and the formula is lovely. I honestly can’t wait to see what looks i can create with the golden shades. Also from MUA i got one of there single eye shadows, i absolutely love this colour and again it’s so so pigmented.

The final things i got from the MUA section were a black pencil eye liner and a glitter eye liner pencil, these were only £1 each and i use eyeliners everyday so i thought i might as well pick one up. I also find these ones more useful as they have a sharpener in the lid, i always lose my actual sharpener so its nice to have one there all the time.0724bb1b-69c2-4d35-8cf1-26085f10c426.jpg

The next two things are a pink toned Highlighter by Freedom Makeup and Candy Blush by w7. Both of these products are pretty good quality for the price of them, i love the way the highlighter looks with the pink tones in it, it really adds a great finish to a look.

Now for the big one, Makeup Revolution products from. Makeup revolution is typically my go to superdrug brand i have sooo many of their products and i love all of them. So lets get started!

The first Make up revolution product is their Lip Lava in the shade Tremor (i believe) , i wanted to buy one to try out the formula as i’m yet to find a lip product that i love. I think this product is their take on the too faced melted lipsticks because they look quite similar and MR also have a molten chocolate collection which i’m presuming is their take on the too faced melted chocolate range. I actually really like this product, though the shade doesn’t look right on me but the formula is pretty good for the price and overall i was really happy with it. I’m still trying to find a lip product that works well for me and a shade to suit me…what’re your favourite go to matte lipsticks/liquid lipsticks? I’d love for you to let me know!

Now for the big one, i purchased the Makeup Revolution 12 Days of Christmas box and my god it’s amazing! For £35 to get £75 worth of stuff you can’t really go wrong can you? Here’s what comes in the box…

First thing i pulled out it the Fixing spray, i’m actually really happy this was in there because i’ve never used a fixing spray before as i don’t tend to wear that much makeup on my face but i’m looking forward to see how well this works!

The box also comes with a Aqua Priming spray, which again i was really pleased to have as i love using primers and the effect they have on looks..hopefully it does it the trick! Speaking of primers, you also get the focus and fix eye primer. This one i’ve actually used before because i got it in a gift set they did last year so i already know its really good and i’m super glad to get a new one because mines running low. Plus the packaging though!

Now onto the eye products, you get 3 eye palettes (two eyeshadow ones and an eyebrow palette). I have to say when I purchased a gift set last year, the quality of the palette was quite disappointing but these two are amazing! I don’t know if they have changed their formula or anything but the colours are way more pigmented and actually come out the colour they should be. Both palettes have their share of cool and warm tones and have some autumnal colours too which i absolutely love. Below is a few swatches of two colours from each palette using the tool they come with. If you would like a swatches or maybe a look i could create please just comment below i would be happy to do so!

I’m really excited to try out the brow palette too! I’m not a makeup expert and i dont really do my brows like most people do but im really excited to try it out! So in this palette you get four eyebrow powders, two creams, a wax, a cream highlighter and two powder highlights. Honestly everything you need for your brows is in this palette!

Face products, and there’s plenty! So lets stay with blush and highlight. In this box you get a powder blush palette and honestly it’s stunning and the colours are definitely very pigmented! You also get a cream highlight palette and seriously guys, 8 didfferent highlighters, there’s no reason for you to not look like a pretty little glazed donut!

Finally for the contouring, okay so you get a ultra contour stick and a ultra highlight stick, i haven’t tried these out yet and i’m not very good at the whole contouring thing but i can try so i can give you my opinion! Both are double ended but on the contour you get one dark contouring shade and one highlighting shade. (sorry about the pictures! need to work out a good background and decent lighting!)

And the final item are lip products! You get three nudes shades of lip glosses, when i swatched them on my hand the colours were gorgeous but obviously it’s lipgloss and so when you apply it to your lips, the colour tends to be more sheer, but they still seem to be amazing!

I’m sorry for such a dragging post, but this is my collective superdrug haul! If you have any questions about anything featured on here then please don’t be afraid to ask in the comments! Hope you enjoy the read 😀 

P.s I’m really sorry for the shocking quality of the photos I am trying to work out was i can use as a better background and get better lighting! 

Also i’ll be doing a giveaway soon so keep an eye out for it! 

If you’d like to purchase the 12 days of Christmas box by Makeup Revolution you can do so here.

How to relax after a long/hard day

Hello my lovelies! Hope you’re all having a fab week! Today’s post is about relaxing after a long or hard day. Everyone needs to relax every now and then so here are 5 ways you can do just that!

  1. I’ll start of with how i relax, I’ll usually come home put on some comfy chilling clothes and make a cup of tea. Especially in the winter months, a hot cup of tea and comfy clothes is a nice way to just relax in the evenings. I also light a scented candles because candles make me feel more relaxed and the smell are really nice too.
  2. Have a warm/hot shower or bath, take your time and then get into comfort clothes and take a nap or just relax in bed or on the sofa.
  3. Sit down for the evening and watch your favourite show or movie, either by yourself or with your friend/partner. Seems simple but it is a really good way to unwind.
  4. Colouring, you’ve probably all seen those adult colouring books that everyone loves, right? They are actually really good stress relievers. I often colour in the evenings and it really does help relax me.
  5. Meditate, i don’t do this personally, but meditation is a widely known way of relaxing, i would recommend just giving it a try!

So these are 5 ways i thought of, that you could relax after a long or hard day. Feel free to comment below if your have your own ways that other people could try!

Also my Q&A requests are still open i’ve only been asked 2 questions so would love some more from you guys!

Let’s get started!

  1. Oversized Knit Sweater– no matter what your style is, grunge, girly, 80s..there’s always a knit sweater in your style! Make sure your wardrobe is fall of sweaters in all sorts of autumnal shades! I know mine is.
  2. Ankle Boots– last year ankle boots were a massive trend and i can see why, they’re cute, warm and go with so many outfits! Whether you go with a traditional black pair or a beige coloured work boot style, they need to be in your wardrobe this autumn!
  3. Skinny Jeans– everybody likes a good pair of skinnies right? Well autumn is the best time to wear them, they’re warm and fashionable so whether they’re black or blue, ripped or not, they should definitely be part of you wardrobe!
  4. Oversized scarf– yes these are still essential a year, if you’re going to keep your neck and chest warm then you might as well do it in style! My favourite ones are the tartan patterned ones but there are so many you can find one to match your style!
  5. A handbag to match!- let’s face it, every wardrobe needs a handbag in it no matter what the trend or season so i had to put it on the list. Try find one in am autumnal colour like browns and maroons!

Product Review! Make Up Revolution- One eye product, One lip product!

Hello my lovelies! Hope you’re all doing well. Today i have a product review for you, of one of my favourite drugstore brands- Makeup Revolution! I thought that instead of just doing one product i thought i would do one eye product and one lip product from the brand.

Okay so first i’ll start with the eye product, i got this palette with a set a few months back but only recently tried using it, I don’t think it has an official name but it’s basically i mixed of neutral colours, dark colours and then a pink and blue too. If I’m honest, i was a little disappointed with the pigmentation of the colours because I own other Makeup Revolution palettes like the Flawless palette and i absolutely love it, it’s my go to palette. This one on the other hand you really have to build up on the lighter colours because they come out quite sheer, the darker colours on the other hand as you can see from the watches below, they come out so much darker than they look. Obviously the black is heavy and dark like it should be but the greens and purple are too dark. I expectd the green to come out like a nice leaf green like it looks in the tray but it came out a dark mossy green, and the purple came out almost black when it looks a lot lighter.

I did like the brown/neutrals at the end, you can make some nice everyday looks with them and they are easier to work with than the others. Overall i definitely think that Makeup Revolutions Ultra eye shadow palettes are their best ones by far, i own the Flawless Palette but they also have others- Mermaid Forever, Affirmation, Flawless matte, Flawless 2 and much more!

 

Secondly I have a Makeup Revolution Salvation Velvet Lip liquid matte lipstick in Vamp, i really love this colour it’s a lovely dark purple shade, but not so dark that it looks black. I personally don’t wear it because i felt like it didn’t look right on my lips but it is definitely worth the buy if you have the right lips and skin tone for it. As for the matte finish, i’d definitely say it does, once its dry it doesn’t feel sticky, it doesn’t smudge and it’s really hard to get off so it must be working right? It has the traditional doe foot applicator so it’s easy to apply.The only thing i would say is that for me it took a couple of strokes because it was a little streaky but other than that i would highly recommend! 100% affordable too!

 

So these are my thoughts on a couple of Makeup Revolutions products, overall i think that they are an amazing beauty range at such affordable rates and i frequently go back to their stall in superdrug. If you’d like to take a look at their products you can either go to Tam Beauty which is the company that hosts make up revolution and freedom makeup, or you can look on the superdrug website or in your local store!

Thank you for reading, hope you’ve had a lovely day!

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!

Review: Pretty Little Liars Summer Finale

Hello, hows everyone doing?

Today was the summer finale for Pretty Little Liars, but fear not, the final 10 episodes EVER will be aired April 2017!

SPOILER ALERT!!!!

It was a very good finale with a lot of mixed emotions going around, here’s my thoughts on it. Firstly how crazy is Hanna? Going after Noel by herself, of course we all knew it wouldn’t go as perfectly as planned but wow Hanna! Also who’s idea was it to give the blind girl the gun?! We all knew trouble was to come after seeing Jenna Marshal walking round with a gun in hand trying to follow the liars round a dark and dusty old house. I’m extremely shocked that both Spencer and Toby ended up hurt…but are they dead?? I guess we’ll have to wait until next year to find out! But as we know, those who appear to die tend to have a way of come back *cough cough* Alison. I hope that they’re not dead and rather just extremely hurt because Spoby was a favourite of mine and we can’t have the final 10 episodes without them, can we?

Another complete bombshell was Mary Drake being Spencer’s mum?! I had suspicions but i never thought they’d really go there and i’m not sure it was a good move either. What do you guys think? And if noel isn’t the other child then what is his role in all this? Why does he hate the liars so much? So many unanswered questions still.

Overall i did find the episode very good and it had a high shock factor but one thing that really irritated me was how they’ve made Ezra completely forget about Aria once he saw Nicole, Ezria is a pair that has been shipped from the start and I think it’s one that should stay till the end…but i guess if things aren’t going to work out between them,Aria always has Jason to lean back on.

I could ramble on all day about the episode but then it would get boring, please let me know what you guys thought of it and mention any theories you have..i love hearing them!
