Summer lipsticks; Ten Favourites

When it comes to summer lipsticks, opinions can be divided. Do you go nude and natural or do you inject some pops of colour? Do you go lipstick or gloss? Many people just dab on some lip balm and forego the lipstick step of their makeup. As the temperatures rise, so does our dislike for…

Beauty Haul; what have I been buying?

June haul; Superdrug, Marks and Spencer, B & M, Face theory and Be Barefaced. I do declare that this is the first beauty haul in a while. Now that I am on ‘project use up’ I have saved up my purchases up over a couple months. At this time last year, I would have been…

Project Pan Revenge; learning from panning.

Why would I want to project pan? When I first heard the term project pan and the concept around that I thought it was a bit ludicrous. Why would anybody want to hit pan on any of their makeup products,? I thought it made the makeup look ugly; as opposed to being the way it was when I first bought it….

My Travel Makeup Bag

I am somewhat of a home bird, preferring the comforts of my own home rather than venturing to different places. Occasionally, I do have to travel and packing is one of the main things that I dislike, especially when it comes to packing my makeup for travelling. If I had the opportunity, I would have taken my whole makeup box on holiday with me to visit family in Colchester but I doubt Mr T would have been too impressed by that, plus it would have been a little excessive considering that the car was already packed to the brim with other essentials. 

Spring Nail Polish

Bringing out the Spring Nail Polishes A change is not necessarily a bad thing, especially when it comes to embracing Spring. There are two different types of beauty addict; those who wear their favourite colours/shades all year round and those that change with the season. Of those two I am more of the later; I…

Superdrug, Beauty Bay and Primark haul

Another haul; Superdrug, Beauty Bay  and Primark I know, I said I would be shopping anymore. I have done well to curb the amount I spend on makeup but a few things slipped through the net in what was an absolutely horrendously busy month. I feel like this haul, apart from a few luxury items has been a practical collective shop. This…

Palette Battle; Juvia's Place vs Makeup Revolution

First Impressions can be misleading
I am wary of a first impression of a product as it is not a real test on how good or bad a product is. Have you ever met someone and thought ‘this person is lovely’ only to find out down the line that they are the devil incarnate. Likewise I have met people that I did not warm to at first who are now firm friends. The same thing can be applied to your first impressions of a product. Whenever I do a haul or project pan, I am conscious that I am fallible to changing my mind about makeup after using it for a while. I even have a product on my disappointing products list that I would repurchase. I based my post on my first impressions and using the product up made me realise how good it was, I am a walking contradiction.

Beauty Mum; Mother's Day Gift Guide

I love you Mum Mother’s Day is very near here in the UK and it is the opportunity to show our appreciation to our wonderful Mums. Being a Mother myself I can now appreciate how hard the job can be at times. My own Mum certainly deserves a lot of love for putting up with…

How I Store My Makeup; What's in My Box. 

What’s in my makeup box
I am a nosey person and enjoy seeing how people conduct their lives on a daily basis; this includes watching videos and reading blogs on how fellow makeup addicts store their makeup collections. Since as I enjoy looking into other people’s makeup collections and storage I figured I better practice what I preach and show you how I store my day to day makeup.
