Review Time : NYX Can’t Stop won’t stop foundation.

Hello everybody, welcome back! I know some of you may be surprised to see another post so soon because I’ve been slacking lately but ya girl is back!

Todays post is a small one, a little review on the NYX Can’t Stop won’t stop foundation.

So I got mine in the shade ‘Alabaster’ because I’m fairly light skinned and I have neutral undertones, I have to say I LOVE this foundation. I thought it was going to be an overhyped product but I genuinely love it. It sits so nicely on my skin and even though it has a matte finish it doesn’t stick to any of my dry patches. It is definitely full coverage but it doesn’t feel heavy on your skin at all. I literally have nothing bad to say, I was so impressed! I usually struggle with dry patches and matte finishes but this was so nice. I will definitely be repurchasing, plus its only £15!

I know that not everyone feels the same about products and that ok, what works for me might not work for you so I don’t want anyone feeling like I’m trying to say my opinion is the only right one..but I do really like this foundation and felt so confident in my makeup after using it.

This is the look I created whilst using the foundation, of course the photo has lighting filters etc on it but I haven’t retouched my skin or anything like that.

What products have you guys been loving lately?

sincerely,

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!

Movie Review- Suicide Squad

Hi guys! Hope you’re all doing well and if any of you got your results today i hope you got what you wanted! I haven’t done a non make up related post in a while so i thought i’d do a movie review as i went to see Suicide Squad a little while ago!

For me, it was amazing i loved every second of it, the plot is brilliant, the actors are perfect and well who doesn’t love a little bit of insanity? Harley Quinn and The Joker were definitely my favourite but that’s because i like the psycho personalities that they have…i was a little bit disappointed to find that there wasn’t much of the Joker in the film as in the trailers he’s shown quite a bit and i wanted to see more of him and HQ together but at the same time i understand why the producers cut it out. It isn’t a film about the joker after all. 

BUT can we talk about Jared Leto as the joker? I thought he played it brilliantly, i mean let’s face it..the best Joker was Heath Ledger right? No one could play Mr J like Ledger so Leto had to take it in a different direction and it worked perfectly!

The actual composition of the suicide squad couldn’t have been better, they all have their own levels of crazy and they bring something different to the squad. I absolutely love the whole bad guys as heroes concept! I wish they had given Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) more lines though because his one liners had me in stitches!

Overall i think it’s definitely one you need to see, especially if you’re a fan of superheroes/villains, it’ll have you hooked right from the beginning!

5/5 from me, but i’d love to know your opinion! Feel free to comment below 🙂

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!

My Christmas haul 2015

Hello everybody! I hope you’ve all had a good Christmas an are excited for the new year! I thought i’d share a few bits that i got for christmas and love, in a mini christmas haul! 

Before i start i just want to make it clear that this is not me trying to brag in any way i just thought i’d do a post showing some of my beauty bits i got as a few people requested it, i do not want to offend anyone!

So first of all I got two Make Up Revolution pallets that i wanted really bad! I got the Give Them Nightmares one and the Smokey one, i haven’t got swatches of them but if you want me to do a swatches and review post the comment below or like! But from what I’ve tried all the colours are very pigmented! Make Up Revolution is a perfect brand for affordable high quality products, definitely worth a look!

As you can probably tell, in the Give Them Night Mares One (above and top right) there are 12 shimmery colours and 6 matte colours, I think this is perfect because it allows you to create some really nice looks! 🙂

I then got some tinted lip glosses from a brand i’ve never heard of but it’s a like a cheaper brand but it still has good quality…if that makes any sense! 

The colours very from red to light pink which are quite nice, they’re quite pigmented in the sense that they’re not sheer, apart from the pale pink which provides a subtle tint..i prefer it that way but some people might not! I was really happy to get these anyway because i’ve been into lip products lately and not i can play with the colours and see what suits me best 😀

I was also given a pack of pencil eye liners from the same brand, there were four in a pack and were all different colours!

From the swatches i took, they seemed good quality, i don’t think i’ll use the goldish one, but i could use the brown  one as an eyebrow pencil instead! This was a good present for me because i always use pencil eye liner and there are constantly running down so i can never have too many!

Finally, it’s not a beauty product but it is to do with beauty, i got an acrylic make up organizer which i was actually already looking into buying but im glad i was given one! I didn’t actually realise how much i needed this until i had it! haha it’s a life saver!Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset So these are a few of the bits i got for christmas i highly recommend the two palettes! Show me what you guys got! i want to know 😀 

Until next time!
