Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Liner - Black Shock

When Benefit released their, They're Real Push Up Liner, everyone went mad for it including me, but after first use the liner just started to go dry and became unworkable.

Natural Collection Bronzer - Sunshine

When it comes to Spring/Summer that's when I start to wear a lot more Bronzer (you should see my bronzer drawer), as it just gives such a love hint of colour and I don't look as pale as I normally do.

The next contender on my whirlwind Spring/Summer tour of bronzers is Natural Collection with their Bronzer in the shade Sunshine.

Rimmel Colour Rush Lip Crayons

I blame my purchase of these lip crayons on EssieButton, she did a Taylor Swift makeup look and I just loved the colour on her lips, so I was enabled and ended up purchasing that colour, and 2 more.

Essence I Heart Stage Eyeshadow Base

When Essence launched in the UK it was all over (well not every Wilkinson's store had the range but you catch my drift), it's only since last year that Essence has been rolled out nationwide through the Wilkinson stores.

MUA Whipped Velvet Blusher

I have become an absolute blusher fiend since becoming a beauty blogger, it is such a magical little product, just by using a small amount it can bring warmth and colour to a dull face. On the block is a recent release from MUA it is their Whipped Velvet Blusher.

Barry M Wink Liner

Eyeliner can be a fiddly thing especially if your cack-handed like me so when I saw the Barry M Wink eyeliner, I jumped in and purchased it while also wondering what the hell I was doing buying a marker pen eyeliner

Too Faced Primed & Poreless Primer*

I bought the Too Face Chocolate Bar palette and ended up getting a sample of the Too Faced Primed & Poreless powder. Now when I read the back of the product that this can be added as a primer - a powder as a primer, now to me that was just a tiny bit too strange.

MUA Pressed Powder - Shade 1

I am always on the lookout for a great powder that is going to set my makeup, not oxidise on the skin, not going to appear cakey, and will keep my makeup on my face. So while I was in my local Superdrug I decided to give the MUA pressed powder compact a whirl.

ELF No More in the UK?

While perusing online, I thought I would have a look at the ELF website, and to my surprise, it was like looking at a ghost town.

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

Urban Decay have taken the world by storm with their naked palettes, so when the 3rd installment was released pandemonium ensued.

Bourjois Dark Kohl Mascara

I love mascara, the right one can make your lashes look like falsies, Bourjois brought this mascara out fighting with it's claims of Beauty'full volume.

I love palettes, they give you such a great mix of colours and Makeup Revolution have just gone from strength to strength when it comes to their Redemption palettes.

B. Radiant Illuminating Foundation - 010 Linen

I am a fan of B. Cosmetics they have some great stuff in their range and I have previously tried 2 other foundations from the brand.

The B. Radiant illuminating foundation contains hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin, it also claims to brighten tired skin to create a healthy glow, the foudation is medium coverage (which isn't that bad and I have come to like a medium coverage foundation).

The foundation applies well to the skin and blends with a brush quite well, the colour match is not that bad either. The foundation also boasts that it has 8 hour transfer-resistant wear, well I can admit that I haven't noticed any transfer whether it be on my clothes or hands. The 8 hour wear I am not sure of, add in sweating and that does reduce the time.

I will admit that I do like this foundation as it doesn't transfer and it doesn't look too cakey on the skin once applied, it gives a nice even finish, and the price isn't too bad.

The foundation retails for £9.99 and can be found in your local Superdrug or online HERE but Superdrug do have a lot of offers on the brand every so often (the half price offer is always my favourite).

Thanks for tuning in

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Fatigue Blur Primer

When Maybelline released their Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser, the reviews were mixed and mine was not the greatest, so when I heard they were releasing another product for the range I bought this with trepidation.

March/ April Favourites

Welcome to a double edition of my monthly favourites, if you have read my last 2 recent posts you will remember why there has been such a long wait.

On with the show

Friday, 8 May 2015


Hi everyone,

Thanks for staying with me, and I know I said I was going to be back on the 1st May but my grandmother passed away, and there was everything that came with a bereavement in the family so blogging was highest on my priorites at the time.

I am slowly getting back to my blog plan, and have my March/April empties and favourites to photograph and post so watch out for them this weekend.

I am starting to schedule some posts so watch out for them next week as well.

I have finally starting to get the blogging bug back and hopefully there will be no more hiatus in the future.

Wish me luck!!

Thanks for tuning in
