In love with the Selfie Story collection

I got a very exciting package in the post today and it was a delivery from Feelunique. I know it contained the new Tanya Burr Cosmetics collection, the Selfie Story collection and I am just so excited to share my opinion on it with you.

I usually don’t go anywhere without wearing mascara and a liner, but at least a mascara. So I was just very happy that two of my absolute fave make up items were in this collection and I finally get to try them out.

But let’s talk about the brow pencil, Selfie Scuplt, first as I am sort of typing this blog post as I’m doing my make up so I can get my true first impression written down.

I actually really like the shape of the brow pencil. I chose the shade medium and it is a perfect fit for my browns. I like the rectangular shape and it is easy to use and really shapes your brows well. I like how I can move it around as I’m putting it on and getting different angles of the product. Just seems to be working perfectly.

The next item I’m trying out is the Selfie Flick eyeliner. I’ve watched Tanya’s videos when she was talking about this new products and when I saw her using the eyeliner I got very intrigued. I can say now already it is so flippin’ good! She said it is easier to apply eyeliner with this one and I have to say she was right. I have been applying liqued eyeliner to my eyes for years and years so I have no trouble with it, but even I can tell that with this one it’s just way easier. I like how thin the brush is because sometimes I really just want a thin line to be there in my lashline. Also thanks to the thin brush doing a winged look is so easy. I usually like felt tip liner for a winged look but this one works even better for that purpose. On top of that it is really black, which sometimes can be an issue with eyeliners. I think I have found my new fave eyeliner overall, if you haven’t guessed that already.

So last but by no means least is my new love the Selfie Lash. It is the prettiest mascara I have tried in a long time. It gives long voluminous lashes. It doesn’t clamp up at all and I really like the shape of the wand and the bristles, I feel like they coat every single eyelash. I think it gives very nice big lashes but not too overdramatic ones, but natural ones. Which I think look better. The formula is wet but not too wet that you can’t really use it and you need to wait for it to dry out a little as with some other mascaras. It feels like the perfect consistency and it works perfectly for the first time. I am really really impressed amd also so so happy with it.

So yeah as the title suggests I am in love with this collection. Even though I just put my make up on I can’t wait to remove it and apply it again tomorrow. I do honestly think these products stand out amongst all the other drugstore brands and I appreciate all the effort and work Tanya and her team put into these products because the results are just fab. Congrats Tanya Burr Cosmetics! I can’t say enough good things!

And lastly here’s a picture of me with my ready make up having used all the goodies mentioned above.

Current Beauty Obssesions

I haven’t been doing monthly faves for a while so I decided to pick all my fave beauty products at the moment and share them with you!

Soap and Glory shower and body lotion products

First of all I’d like to write about some of the new shower and body products that I have been loving in the past month.  I have never tried any Soap and Glory products before since living here in the UK for three years but I have heard good things about them so I decided to give them a try and I was not disappointed at all. Both the Orangegasm and the Clean On Me shower gels are really good. I use the Orangegasm when I feel I need to be energized for the day. With the Clean on me shower gel I like the fact that it has built in  body lotion as well and it really leaves my skin feel soft and smooth after the shower.

The other two discoveries are actually almost the same product just in different forms. One is the Daily Smooth body butter and the other one is The Smoothie deep moisturizing milk. Both have the same scents to them but obviously the butter has a thicker texture than the milk. Even though I find the milk to be thicker that just a normal body lotion. I find them to do a great job at moisturizing my body all day and I’ve just been really enjoying using them in these past months.

Burberry Weekend perfume

I have had my eyes on this perfume for more then a year now and now I finally decided to treat myself and get it. I’m not really good at describing scents really so I’m just gonna put the information here that I fund on the Burberry website so you can get an idea what it smells like. I would highly recommend though to pop into boots and give it a little sniff if you can.

A sheer fragrance with top notes of tangerine, tree sap and reseda plant. Delicate floral heart notes of wild rose, peach blossom, iris and hyacinth, invigorated by a subtle splash of nectarine. The low notes of cedar wood and sandalwood add depth for a relaxed and fresh scent

YSL The Shock mascara

This is one of my newly found mascaras and I’m in love with it. It gives you sooo much volume and just basically feels like it doubles the sizes of your lashes. It has an hour shape kind of wand with medium bristles. It does smell pretty nice for a mascara too, almost like a hand cream. It can easily clamp up though so be careful not to apply too many coats. But overall it is a really good high end mascara and I feel like it’s definitely worth the money.

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation

After using creamy foundations for years I wanted to try out a bit more watery consistency of a foundation. I rarely try new foundations as I like to stick with the ones I know I like and work great for my skin, but I’m lucky I did find try out this one. It comes in a lot of shades so it’s guaranteed that you’ll find a match for your skin colour. I am shade 102. I really like the feel of it on the skin, it is thinner on the skin and you can’t feel it on the skin either which is what I prefer with foundations. It lasts good on my all day does not cake up, overall it is a good drugstore foundation.

L’Oreal Miss Baby Roll Mascara blue and black

As I said I don’t really like to change up my foundation, however I’m always on the lookout for new mascaras and I really like trying out new ones. I have been really unlucky finding not so great mascaras in the past so I was sooo happy with this one as it did it’s job and gave me fab lashes. It is a more drier formula so probably easier to apply. It gives you really curly and lifted lashes. Doesn’t really clamp up thanks to its dry formula. A really good and affordable drugstore mascara and the best thing abut is that it comes in colours too. So naturally I had to purchase a blue mascara as well. They also sell purple and turquoise coloured ones as well. Can’t wait to try those ones out too.

Max Factor matte lipstick

With my mascara collection growing I don’t particularly mind if my lipstick collection grows with it too. They are my two fave make up items. I have been loving matte lippies as they are really on trend now , and every brand is releasing their own matte lipstick or liquid matte lipsticks lip paint, name it, a brand has already come up with it. I usually prefer a liquid form that dries down but I saw these lipstick in a Youtube video and I just had to get one of them when I was in Superdrug. I chose the shade Rose which is this really lovely pink shade that I also used in my spring summer make up look tutorial as well. It is a matte lipstick but it is not drying on the lips and actually it stays on for quite a while. I will definitely be purchasing more shades of this lipstick as it is slowly becoming my fave lipstick and the one I reach for the most.

I hope you liked reading this blog post! What are your current beauty obsessions?
