Makeup Revolution Amazing Makeup Setting Spray

As you know I love a makeup setting spray, having oily to combination skin is not the best for makeup longevity so a makeup spray is always good.

Urban Decay Naked Palette

When you talk of eyeshadow palettes there is one cult classic that shouldn't be missed and that is the Urban Decay Naked Palette. Every Youtuber and their dog seems to have this palette so I ended up treating myself to it for Debenhams.

Valentine's Reds (The Lippy Edition)

Happy Valentines Day everyone and welcome to a valentines day post, last year I did my top five red nail polishes (HERE), so this year it is the turn of the lip products.

Russian Roulette - Sleek
Russian Roulette is quite a dark matte red, and the best one if you are wanting to rock a dark bold lip on Valentines Day. This lasts quite long on the lips due to it being a matte lipstick, but I will forewarn you make sure your lips aren't having a dry day as this can show up dry patches.

Hot Pepper - Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet
This is a really bright red and the Rouge Edition Velvets had to be included. The formula is so long lasting and great during that romantic meal.

Candy Apple - Revlon Lip Butter
Candy Apple is quite a sheer lipstick, so this is for those of you that want to try a red lipstick but don't want to be too daring

Prohibition - Collection Deluxe Lipstick
This again is another bright red but with a darker tinge to it then Hot Pepper above. This is a gorgeous shade on the lips and looks just fantastic. The formula is matte and is also quite long lasting on the lips.

The Redder, The Better - Rimmel Colour Rush Lip Crayon
This is another sheer red with an orange tones, it applies to the lips fantastically and is also great if you are not wanting to be too daring on Valentines Day.

I hope you liked the post, is there any red lip products that you love that weren't featured?

Thanks for tuning in


Smoky Poppy - The Body Shop

The Body Shop are always  ahead when it comes to new fragrances so when I saw the new Smoky Poppy in store finally after reading so much about the scent of this fragrance that was it, it had to be done, and especially for Valentine's Day.

L'Oreal La Palette Nude

Now I love an eyeshadow palette (I have a drawer full as well as a my most used on my vanity), so when I heard that L'Oreal were releasing an eyeshadow palette, that was it I had to buy it.

The palette retails for £14.99 in Boots and online HERE, not the cheapest palette but still a lot cheaper then high end, and as you know I need to justify a single purchase and to me this was worth it.

The palette contains 10 eyeshadows and it is quite rose toned and reminds me of the Naked 3 palette. It contains 6 shimmer shades and 4 matte shades, all the shades a very useable and the majority are useable on a daily basis at work, as well when creating a smokey eye look.

You can see in the swatches above that the lighter shades aren't as pigmented as the darker shades, but they still show quite well. The shadows are all easily blended to create a smokey eye.

The only gripe that I have is I think the palette should have the same amount of shimmer to matte shades, but overall I think it is a really good palette, and it is currently resting in my palette holder as one of my most used palettes.

Thanks for tuning in

Maybelline Expert Wear Blusher - Flash Plum

As you know since dipping my toes in the blusher water I have since stocked up my makeup drawer with blushers galore. So when I hit a 3 or 2 at my local Boots I thought I would try the Maybelline Expert Wear Blusher.


I will admit I love this blusher, and I wore it all through December (I am surprised I haven't hit pan yet). The blusher applies well to the cheeks and just adds a great flush of colour onto the cheeks, the blush is quite pigmented so only a small amount is needed on your brush.

I will admit the colour range for this blusher is quite slim, there are 3 including this one which is a bit of a shame as it is such a lovely blusher. The blusher retails for £5.19 on the Boots website HERE. You can also find the blusher at your local Boots and Superdrug as well online.

Overall this is a great blusher but the shade range could do with expanding a bit.

Thanks for tuning in

Red Nose Red - Rimmel

SEVENTEEN Stay Pout Lipsticks

I have become a lipstick obsessive, if the colour looks good I will grab it for my basket. When I was in my local Boots I thought I would have a nosy to see what SEVENTEEN had to offer me.
The Stay Pout lipsticks come in a wide variety of colours, and I currently have four at the moment.

Fond Farewell is a lovely dark brown shade that applies well to the lips. Once applied the lipstick goes matte.

Rule Breaker is a dark berry shade, and is great for Autumn or even when you want to rock a dark lip.

Just A Fling is a nude shade, this isn't my favourite of the four shades and I would say this is my least worn shade as it looks quite draining on the lips.

Infared is a lovely red shade and looks great on the lips, the pigmentation on this colour is brilliant and applies so lovely on to the lips.

These are some great lipsticks, very pigmented and they just apply brilliantly to the lips, and for £4.49 they don't break the bank, and can be found in your local Boots or online HERE. Out of the four I have, I will admit my favourite is Rule Breaker, it is just such a lovely dark colour for the lips and just looks fantastic.

Thanks for tuning in

As you already know I love mascara, so while I was in London last July I went to Selfridges and headed to the Lancome. I have heard rave reviews about the Lancome Hypnose mascara so I thought it was time I added it to my stash.

#ManiMonday - Mischief Managed - Tanya Burr

I picked this up in Superdrug last year when Tanya Burr's polish and lipgloss line was released in store. I mainly bought this because of the name (Mischief Managed - Harry Potter).
