New L’Oreal bits

Unfortunately I discovered how easy it is to order from Superdrug. I say unfortunately because I often find it hard to stop myself from ordering something new all the time. I blame the free delivery over £10. I mean most places you have to spend £15 or £20 at least to be able to order things to your house. And let’s be honest it is the easiest thing in the world to spend £10 in Superdrug. So after rambling on about this, and the point I was rambling about this is because, I was browsing through the website and some new bits from L’Oreal peeked my interest and I had to order them…

psx_20180306_125815787144673.jpg

I have been looking for a new primer that is mattifying, as I have been struggling to keep my forehead matte all day. I love using the Benefit Porefessionals on my cheeks, it does a great job of filling in my gigantic pores. But I needed something different for my forehead, because that’s where I tend to get the most oily. So I decided to pick up the Infallible Priming Base. I have to say it does a good job of keeping my face as matte as possible during the day. I has a very liquidy texture and a little goes a long way. It makes my skin feel very smooth and even. Also I have no trouble applying foundation over it. I think it is a great drugstore primer if you, like me, have oily skin.

psx_20180306_130310544184155.jpg

The next two items I really liked and ordered were the Infallible Color Riche Crayon eyeliners in two shades, I’ve got black (which is funnily the blue one) and Violet, which is the purple one. I was sooo excited to get these. You already know from my love for the NYX Vivid Bright eyeliners, that I like to go for coloured eyeliner from time to time. These are incredible as they stay put all day and they do not budge at all! There were no prints on my eyelid by the end of the day, it wasn’t running down under my eyes either. I find the blue one to be more vibrant and very, very pigmented. The purple one is pigmented too, but has a little bit of a sheen to it as well, while the blue one is completely matte. I like to use them over my black eyeliner as a little bit of somethin’ somethin’. I also used the purple one on my bottom lash line and I really liked how that looked.

So these were a few make up bits that I got from L’Oreal recently and have been using a lot. Have you tried any of these product? What is your fave product from L’Oreal?

Until next time,

Miss Sporty lip creams

Even though I just did a blog post on possibly the best drugstore liquid lipsticks, when I saw these on Instagram, I knew I wanted to try them out. They are obviously more affordable and I wanted to see if they were any good so I picked up three of the shades to test out.

First of all I really like these pinky nude shades, they go with every make up look. I got the shades Lively Rose, Vibrant Mocha and Cheerful Pink When applying I would say they do have a bit of a smell to them, like you know that chemical scent, which they did try to hide, but you can still smell it. So that’s a bit off putting, I don’t really like that typical chemical scent to any make up product.

psx_20180206_1033131239714399.jpg

 

psx_20180206_104312800859649.jpg

In consistency it is moussy, I find them similar to The Body Shop Matte Liquid Lips. They are pigmented enough and have a nice colour payoff. They dry down quickly and they are comfortable to wear, but I find them drying after a few hours.

They claim to be kiss-proof and to last for 24 hours, they do last well, but only until you eat something, and then it rubs off on the inner parts of your lip. The only good thing is the colours are so close to actual lip colours, that I think it’s not that noticeable if it rubs off, which is good, if you have no chance to touch it up during the day.

psx_20180206_120237198748108.jpg

All in all, I think you get a liquid lipstick that is worth its price, I think that there are better ones in the drugstore, like the Maybelline Superstay Matte Inks, but these are a great option if your looking for something cheap and easy to wear.

Hope you liked this little review, and let me know if you tried these liquid lipstick, and what do you think about them.

Valentines Day make up look 2018

First of all I have a funny story about this blog post. The pictures here was supposed to go up in a Christmas Glam Make Up look post, but I never got around to do it. Still I did not feel like wasting those photos, and since it is so similar to what I would do for Valentine’s day make up look too I thought I’m gonna post it. So I hope you like this look, and let me know your plans for Valentine’s day. Since I’m single, it’ll be just every other day for me, but it’s still nice to see what others are up to.

Birchbox February 2018

In case I have forgotten to tell you in the previous post, happy February! Since it is still the beginning of the month, I have received my Birchbox (yaaay) so it was only natural to write up a little blog post on all the things I got. I said this about last month’s box too, but this box design is again so pretty, definitely my fave so far. This month we could choose the design of the box and I choose the ’90 one. Being the kid of the ’90 I really really like the colours, the patters, it does reminds me a lot of my childhood. (That pastel pink is so my colour!)

psx_20180208_1156381021347773.jpg

psx_20180208_1149221279466197.jpg

So let’s see what I have received:

First thing is an eyeshadow trio by The Beauty Crop in Love You So Latte ( haha like the name ). It looks like it has pretty shades in there, two shimmery and one matte. I would maybe prefer that dark matte shade to be a bit lighter for a transition shade, but I can see where they were going with it. According to the leaflet that comes with the box, these eyeshadows are enriched with coffee extracts to brighten, which sounds intriguing. I like playing around with new eyeshadow so can’t wait to give this a go.

psx_20180208_1159101443590452.jpg

psx_20180208_1150312067032290.jpg

Second thing I received was a colour correcting stick by ModelCo. I personally have not really ventured into the world of colour correcting, but I do have one green colour correcting product by Nip+Fab. I like to use green shades on my spots, especially since I often decide to squeeze them after doing my skincare and before applying make up. (bet that’s just me!) I think I will prefer this one as it is in a stick form, not liquid, so for me it will be easier to apply and blend out.

psx_20180208_1153571934434876.jpg

Then I have received another make up item, which I can’t complain about really, it is a cream blush highlighter by LAQA and Co. It is in a peachy shade, which is new for me as I tend to gravitate toward pink blushes, because they suit me better. However it does not seem to be that pigmented so I will definitely try it out as a highlihter and see how it work with my skintone.

psx_20180208_115233209213357.jpg

psx_20180208_1151291523362936.jpg

The last two products I got are both hair products, which I don’t think has happened before, but again not complaining. First is a finishing polish by Percy and Reed. I have received samples of their products through Birchbox before so I was excited to get another one. It can be used to style your hair, I guess like a liquid hairspray, give it texture and shine. Intrigued to see how this works in my hair, if it smooths and detangles, I’ll be all for it.

And lastly I have received a hair mask by Luseta. I got a conditioner last month from the same brand and I was happy with that, so now I’m excited to try out this hair mask. I never really do anything like that with my hair, other than shampoo and conditioner, but it could definitely do with more useful products for sure. It is designed to repair and restucture, also it has acids and vitamins in it to make your hair soft and silky. My hair has been so dry this winter, so I’m sold and can’t wait to try this out.

These are all the products I have got this month. I’m really happy with it and still really like the desing of the box, already thinking about how I can reuse it, haha.

Hope you liked this post! Which one is your fave sample of the box?

NYX Vivid Brights Eyeliners

NYX is one of my fave drugstore brands and I am so happy that they have been available in Boots for quite some time now. I feel like they have a lot of fun make up bits to play around with. Not to mention their lip products. I don’t think any other drugstore brand has as many lip products as NYX does. But today I want to write about something different, not lippies. When I first saw these vivid brights eyeliners I knew I had to get my hands on them.

First I tried the blue one, Sapphire, blue being my fave colour. I fell in love with it instantly, so later on I got to more shades. I got the dark purple one, Violet, and the pink one, Petal.

psx_20180123_1044321770723330.jpg

They are very pigmented, which is great, I usually put them on if I don’t fancy bothering with eyeshadows and want something simply yet colorful. But there are many ways to play around with them and I have seem a lot of great pics of them on Instagram.

They do dry down quite fast and I would warn you not to put too much on your eyelids because you can definitely feel them there. I can feel them anyway, especially on the end of my eyes where I draw the winged liner. It doesn’t bother me personally, I get used to it quite quickly, but just wanted to say it in case some of you don’t like that dry eyeliner feeling on your lids.

I got them in three shades, and you can see the swathes of them here:

psx_20180123_104558454251873.jpg

I think they are perfect to brighten up any make up, but they are very pretty on their own.

Here is a very easy make up look with the blue eyeliner:

Fave make up bits 2017

First of all I would like to wish all of you a Happy New Year! I will join to everyone who says ‘ I can’t believe that 2017 is gone and it’s 2018!’ . To be honest it wasn’t my fave year ever, but with blogging I think I was happy with my journey. It was all about experimenting, trying to find out how I can fit into this blogging world. I realised I don’t want to put pressure on myself, I just want to blog because I like to talk about make up and beauty and girly things. And since that is what I like to do I couldn’t miss an opportunity to collect all my fave beauty bits from 2017 and share them with you. These are deffo my fave posts to read at all times, so lets get into it.

psx_20180107_1512071582379531.jpg

 

psx_20180107_1524341885427185.jpg

 

psx_20180107_1515221380682731.jpg

I love eye shadows. Next to mascara they are my fave make up items, so it was actually really hard to choose my fave. Not gonna lie I almost always use Tanya Burr Cosmetics eye shadows and I love them. I used this palette ( Enchanted dream ) a lot this last year, the shades are so pretty and pigmented, can create and easy day look or a smokey evening look too. This was definitely my fave eye shadow palette of this last year.

psx_20180107_1519091921817128.jpg

I definitely wanted to include a mascara, but it was soooo hard to choose just one, but nonetheless I managed. When I heard that this Lash Paradise mascara from L’Oreal was supposed to a dupe for the Better than sex mascara from Too Faced, it intrigued me instantly. It gives you full lashes, a bit clumpy, but I don’t really mind. It is not too extreme, so perfect for everyday wear. I wore it everyday for my holiday and I have to say it is the perfect mascara to wear for a no make up makeup look.

psx_20180107_1526221489780943.jpg

I am a huge fan of the Porefessionals primer by Benefit, however it is a bit pricey, so I decided to look for a cheaper option from the drugstore. I have to stay I still prefer the Porefessionals, but this primer ( Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser by Maybelline )  is also really good, and cheaper. It has a clear colour to it, and the similar texture as the Porefessionals and it does the job. Hides my giant pores on my face. I would definitely recommend it if you’re looking for good drugstore primer.

psx_20180107_1522041632624239.jpg

I don’t own a lot of blushes. I never have. Just always had a few to choose from and I just never ventured into trying out lots of blushes. That hasn’t really changed, and for most of last year I was using this NYX blush. It is in the shade baby blush, and you need the tiniest amount as it is very pigmented, but looks beautiful on the skin. I prefer pink blushes anyway and this complements my pale skin perfectly.

psx_20180107_1523311572890649.jpg

 

psx_20180107_151708595379178.jpg

Another fave product for the cheeks is this Cheek Illuminator by Tanya Burr Cosmetics. Also has a pink undertone, creamy formula, which works well even on top of powder. It is not glittery and gives you a nice and pretty shine.

psx_20180107_1521021253887455.jpg

psx_20180107_1513501220368239.jpg

Lastly it is lip product, cuz I do own many many lippies. Again was hard to choose, but I chose my fave shade from the Matte me up lip paints from BarryM. This was their 35th anniversary limited edition lipkit and I’m happy I got it. It is a perfect dark pink shade lip. Wears easy on the lips, dries down to matte and lasts for hours.

So these were my fave finds for 2017, hope you liked reading about it and don’t forget to share your fave bits in the comments!

Have a nice day!

Wearing Tanya Burr’s Midnight Smoulder palette / FOTD

Even though I have had this palette for a year I only wore it a couple of times, but each time I loved it so much! Blue is actually my fave colour and I do think it suits my eyes as well, so I promised myself to wear it more. So this was the make up I was wearing the other day, and I liked how it turned out so I decided to do a quick little post on it. In my opinion, this make up look would be good for the Christmas party season too, if you like to go rather eye heavy than lip.

Budget friendly eyeshadow palette for Autumn

I like to apply natural eyeshadows anyway but, in the Autumn I feel like it is only right to apply natural eyeshadows. Currently I’m trying to do a beauty spend ban, which means not purchasing any new make up products, which is just hard, especially with all the Christmas ranges being out now, but nonetheless I am trying.

I did want to find a make up palette therefore that was already in my possession, because I didn’t want to send money getting a new one, and oh boy I could have..

But right now trying to make most of what I already have and after writing up the longest intro to a blog post, here is the cheapest palette I think you can find in the drugstore, that has all the shades you need for Autumn.

PSX_20171017_103713.jpg

This palette is by Make Up Revolution, their Redemption Palette Iconic 1, and and it has 12 shades in there and all that for only £4. If you are on a budget or just simply like to get a lot for your money, as I do, then this is a very good option for you.

Despite of being ridiculously cheap, it is actually a good quality palette, where the shades are bendable. I like shimmery eyeshadows most of the time, and 10 out of the 12 is shimmery, the other two are perfect matte shades for the crease.

PSX_20171017_103912.jpg

You can find really light everyday shades in it, as well as darker, autumny shades as well. I really like the variety you get, and all you need to do is just play round with it.

Here are all the swatches from the palette :

PSX_20171017_104220.jpg

This has definitely been the eyeshadow palette I have been reaching for the most in the last few weeks.

What is your go to eyeshadow palette for Autumn?

I hope you liked this blog post and have a lovely day. xx

Lipstick ready for Autumn

Well as it is already October I thought it was only natural to type up a blog post about my fave lippies for Autumn. So here it is 😊.

As much as Autumn is kind of all about the berry and dark shades I actually like to wear more nude shades as well as the occasional dark shades too. So they’re are both in my faves.

PSX_20171008_145310

The first one that is I really really like for this season is the Maybelline Vivid Matte liquid lipstick in the shade Nude Flush. It gives this perfect pink nude colour to the lips and pretty much goes with every make up look. The only thing is that it doesn’t dry down completely so you feel it being tacky basically throughout the time you’re wearing it, so naturally it does rub off too and it is not long lasting. However it is a very pretty colour and just an absolute must have for every season really.

PSX_20171008_145028

To stay within the natural shades the next lipstick is my other nude fave and it is the Tanya Burr Cosmetics lipstick in the shade Pink Cocoa. This one is a darker pinky nude shade but because it is darker it goes better wih the Autumn theme of make ups. This is really the your-lip-shade-but-better colour. It has a satin finish, definitely not long lasting, not that it claims to be.

To go to a bit darker shade, and to express my love for purple toned lippies, my next fave is from the NYX lingerie lipstick line and it is the shade Embellishment. This one has a different formulation and it feels quite moussey on the lips, but also very light and you can barely feel that it is there. It dries down completely and stays put for hours. One of my fave colours to wear.

To mention some berry shades as well in my faves I have chosen another still-could-be-nude-but-it-is-darker than-that shade and it is from The Body Shop. This liquid lipstick is in the shade Nairobi Camellia. It has a slight berry tone to it, although not too much as it is still quite stuble on the lips. This one dries down matte and last longer than all the ones I mentioned before however it is still not long lasting. But smells really good.

PSX_20171008_145146

I left the darkest shade of the bunch to last and it is I think also the darkest lippies I own. I actually bought this months ago but waited for Autumn to really use it as I think it is a typical Autumn colour. It is the Barry M Matte Me Up liquid lipstick in the shade Embellish. ( looks like a theme giving these names to the purple lipsticks haha ) It is this dark purple shade which is perfect for nights out I think. However it would be pretty in the daytime too with winged liner and some lashes. It is a lip paint so it is a very wet formula but dries down matte. It stays on for a quite a long time. I really like the shade and just can’t wait to rock it.

So here are all my fave lippies I am wearing mostly in this season. What are your fave Autumn essential lipsticks? xx
