Revlon Ultra HD Pink Matte Lips

💗💗 Shade- 605 HD Obsession

Matte lips are quite the craze, I absolutely LOVE the matte lip trend and I always opt for nude/light pink shades. I decided to go for a more braver colour option - Hot pink.
So many companies have released their own versions of matte liquid lipsticks and Revlon was one brand that I had to try and I was quite impressed.

Product description:
Lightweight, high definition velvety matte color. Moisturizing, velvety feel. 100% wax-free, gel formula. Available in 16 high definition shades.

The packaging is quite sleek and this collection looks quite sophisticated. The lipstick tubes come housed in a wide and flat look which makes it stand out from the rest. Each gloss holds 5.9ml and has a sponge applicator. 

The formulation is incredible, I LOVE how this feels comfortable on the lips, I have found that some matte lip products feel so drying and uncomfortable but applying and wearing this is easy breezy.
I would describe the formulation as a hybrid of a lipbalm/lipstick although the finish isn't as matte, this does not take away from the formula. It still wears incredibly well. The initial application had a little shine but then it dries to a cream/semi matte finish. I love that this has a bit more moisture than other matte lip products, My lips even felt hydrated which is very rare with other matte lip products I have tried in the past.
I am able to get a great 5-6 hour wear without any feathering or cracking which is brilliant and not only that, the pigmentation is commendable! Such a vivid colour pay off that is true to the colour you initially see. I know I will be picking up more, especially the nude shades which is perfect for everyday wear.

Hema Stationery Haul

Stationery shopping is like, my favourite thing to do and ever since I got treated to a cute pink floral 2017 planner from, I have been wanting all sorts of cute stickers, washi tape and pastel gel pens so that I can plan prettily. 

One of my favourite places to go to for affordable but cute stationery is Hema. Everything that I bought from the images above was between the 0.75p - £2 mark which is pretty impressive.

What I bought:👀❤
3x pack of Stickers, how amazin' are the holographic heart ones?!
2x Washi tape
Princess stamp
1x Sticky notes

I think I went over board on the stickers but I can't plan unless I heavily decorate my lists and notes *heart eyes emoji*
The arrow sticky notes are great for important dates/appointments and it beats the boring fluorescent sticky notes that you see practically everywhere!

I will definitely review the new planner so you can see how I use these items in my planning sessions, seriously.. I think I've become one of those planner geeks who collects every type of washi tape and wants more and more!

Have you visited Hema before? Would you buy stationery from here?

Technic Get Gorgeous Highlighter Review

There's nothing like adding light and shine to your base make-up and I love collecting highlighters. I'm glad to add this particular one to my collection because it gives my skin such radiance and the pigmentation is fab!

Product description:
Technic Get Gorgeous Highlighting Powder- Light and easy to use, enhance your cheeks eyes and pout with this star product. · For Cheeks - Simply apply directly onto the cheeks · Eyes - use to highlight the brow bone. · Lips - add just a little to the top of your cupids bow for a fab pout. Size: 12g

Technic cosmetics is a brand that needs to be tried more because I was so impressed when this arrived!
The packaging is sturdy, the highlighter pan is big enough to swirl your brush into and the amount of highlighter you are getting for the price is amazing!
The ripple design of the highlighter makes this a product worth looking at too! Since it looks much more interesting than a flat design.

I would describe this highlighter as the perfect icy champagne shade, that can look amazing on any skintone. The formulation and texture of this baked highlighter is very smooth and blends like a dream! This has beautiful shimmer with tiny specks of glitter. The ultimate princessy highlighter.

I was amazed at the pigmentation. There is so much colour pay off and you only really need to use a small amount because this product really means business. I however really like to pack it on to achieve a dewy and radiant look, especially on ill and tired days when my complexion really needs a boost. I know I will be using this more! I just wish I had tried this sooner!

Pucker Pops

This is the definition of CUTE. Claires have their own range lipbalms - Pucker Pops and this really made me remember the good ol' days when I used to drag my mom into this store and just browse through endless sparkly lipglosses and adorable lil stud earrings.

Product description:
Claire's fun line of Pucker Pops. Lipglosses are extra stylish with Pucker Pops’ wacky designs from animals to trolls and googly eye creatures.
Want to collect all of our Pucker Pops lipglosses? Then you'll need this strawberry flavoured novelty gloss with googly eyes and tutu detail it is super cute!

Each Pucker Pop comes as a different character, I chose this particular one because it was pink and super cute, OK so I may of chosen this one because it has a tutu! 
You can clip this onto your purse/bag and take it everywhere you go.
The actual gloss is a super light pink shade but comes out sheer and very shiny on the lips. It gives hydration to the lips but don't expect much since this is a kiddy make-up product and serves more novelty and fun than actual care for the lips.
The scent is quite pleasant and reminds me of strawberry sweets you get from pic n mix!
If you are into cute keychains/novelty lip balms then this is definitely for you! I love mine and I definitely want to get the mint one, just can't get enough of pastels.

Is this something you would definitely buy?

7th Heaven Pineapple Peel-Off Facemask Review

I always make sure to keep a stock of face masks at home and when travelling, nothin' beats a good ol' pamper sesh and I came across this particular face mask whilst shopping at Asda. I frikkin LOVE peel- off masks. Fact. I also wished that I had tried this sooner because it truly worked wonders on my skin.

Product description:
We’ve pulped tropical Pineapple and Papaya to harness their natural juicy powers. Fruit enzymes in our face mask peel away dead cells for a smooth, glowing complexion.Three key ingredients in this mask: Pineapple, Papaya and Grape.
Peel Off masks are gentler and more effective than scrubs whilst leaving skin incredibly purified and smooth. You’ll be amazed at how many dead skin cells show up on the mask after use. So why not jazz up your weekly scrub routine and use a peel off instead!

Once I opened the sachet, the smell was incredible. Just like a fresh fruit salad, it was truly uplifting.
The consistency was thick but a bit runny too. I simply used a flat brush to apply the face since it made it a whole lot easier to apply and I managed to get an evenly layer too.
I applied 2 coats because my skin really needed that TLC.
What I love about peel off masks is that satisfying feeling of pulling off the mask that has all of the impurities, please tell me it isn't just me!
One of the reasons I loved this mask was that it was SO easy to pull off and without the pain. Some peel off masks really cling onto the skin which makes it hard to remove and causes my eyes to water because it is that painful.
After removing the mask, my skin looked and felt AMAZING. My skin looked renewed, fresh and a whole lot brighter. I had glowing and smooth skin for atleast 2 days which I thought was pretty darn good.
This mask does exactly what it says on the packaging and it's a great pick me up or great to use in a weekly pamper sesh.
I will definitely keep these in stock and maybe just use these since it really does a fab all around job in keeping my complexion looking at it's best.

Check it out here - link /80p* was on offer at Asda.
Available at Asda, Wilko, Primark & Claires!

Too Faced Cosmetics Wishlist

Too faced cosmetics wishlist

After countless hours of reading make-up reviews and scrolling through endless pretty Too Faced make-up photos on Instagram & Pinterest, I have come to a conclusion that it's time to try this brand. The products looks so instagram-worthy and not to mention how pretty the pink packaging is. So here are the top five products that I want to own one day soon.

T H E   F A C E: 

There are a total of three products that I really want to get my paws on, I think if I used all three together I could achieve the most flawless and shimmerin' base ever!
The Candlelight Glow Highlighter (£25) is like ultimate highlighter goals! I heart the packaging and since I love trying out different highlighters and wear them daily, this would make the obvious next purchase.
Heart eyes for the Love Flush Blusher (£25) This reminds me so much of the 90s Polly Pocket packaging, it's so cute! Pink blushers are a favourite of mine and I have heard so much about this, think it's time to try it out.
To have an overall fantastic make-up look, you need a great base, that's why I need the Hangover Replenishing Primer (£27) in my life. This promises to hydrate, smooth and brighten the skin. What more could you want?

T H E   E Y E S:

Volumised lashes are my favourite look so I decided to add the Size Queen Mascara (£18) to my wishlist, I have heard alot about the infamous 'better than sex' mascara but I'm looking for lashes that are larger than life! This mascara also has conditioning fibres and it stretches the lashes so that it can reach it's optimum length.
Cat flicks are so cute to wear and the Sketch Marker (£17) would help me to achieve feline flicks in moments, the sketch markers are inspired by Japanese calligraphy pens and also come in a huge array of cute colours too!

Kawaii Snacks Haul

There's just something so fascinating about korean/chinese/japanese snack foods and their packaging. The bubblegum pinks and the cute fonts make their products so instagrammable too! I recently went to a local chinese cash and carry to explore and I came out smilin' because I found so many cute and tasty treats. I wanted to share with you what I bought and how it tasted. 

Meiji Hello Panda Biscuits
I absolutely LOVE the sky blue colour and the graphics on this box. There are three types of flavours that you can choose from: strawberry, chocolate and milk. I opted for the milk filling since that's one of my favourite flavours in these types of snacks. In the box you'll find a cute blue packet. When you open the packet, you'll find cute lil biscuits with panda illustrations on them! The biscuits are crunchy and the milk filling tastes amazing with the biscuit. These make lovely travel snacks to munch on in the car or to carry in your bag. These aren't overly sweet so it's great as a lil treat. I think I need to try out the other two flavours.

Silk Road Fortune Cookies
I love a good ol' fortune cookie! I don't believe in fortune but I do like the novelty factor of this cute snack, it's so fun and interesting to see what a lil piece of paper says about you once you crack open the cookie. The actual cookie tastes lovely, again nothing too sweet but very crunchy and mildly sweet. I wouldn't mind eating these as actual biscuits if they're sold without the fortune inside. The cookies are individually wrapped and would make dinner parties and meals with the family more fun.

Meiji Yan Yan 
I absolutely LOVE these dippin' snacks. Cute vibrant packaging that definitely catches your eye! This particular once has a vanilla dip with biscuits to dunk into the sweet dip. I prefer this to milk chocolate, the biscuits themselves are sweet. This has to be the sweetest out of the three. If you really have a sweet tooth like me then you'll LOVE these. I only have a lil complaint about this certain product, there simply isn't enough dip!! I end up with so many biscuit sticks that I have to eat plain, hahaha.

Have you tried any of these kawaii snacks before?

Rediscovering Old Beauty Favourites

A good thing about having a huge make-up collection is that you rotate products to use often. I switch and change products to use on a daily basis and lately I have been using and loving these cosmetics. So pink and pretty.

B O U R J O I S  H I G H L I G H T E R
I love using highlighters. Fact. I have been reaching out for this since it's so pretty and I absolutely love the shimmer and the overall look it gives to my complexion. It contains mini specks of glitter mixed in with light pink shimmer. The ultimate princess highlighter that I won't be changing any time soon.

N Y X  B U T T E R G L O S S
This gives the perfect pink lip. I love NYX lip products and I have been loving how this has been keeping my lips soft and hydrated. I usually go for matte finishes but I ended up switching my look by finishing off my make-up with a glossy lip. I do LOVE good lipgloss. 

C L A R I N S  I N S T A N T  L I G H T  L I P  P E R F E C T O R  I N  ' M Y  P I N K ' 
I adore Clarins lip products and I have fallen for this lip perfector again. This is the perfect everyday lipbalm that looks so luxurious too! I have been wearing this lately on my no make-up days and what I love about this product is that it hydrates so well and gives my lips a custom shade of pink, since it reacts with the pH of my lips. I love products like this.

Tanya Burr Soft Luxe Collection Lipgloss in 'Martha Moo' Review

Team Internet are taking the world by storm. I'm subscribed to many fellow youtubers and this particular youtuber/blogger/makeup artist/book author is doing so well for herself, no one other than Tanya Burr.

Tanya Burr released her make-up collection in 2014 and I was particularly drawn towards the Soft Luxe collection which came out this year. I'm lovin' all of the pastel shades and cute packaging.

S O F T  L U X E  M A T T E  L I P: in Martha Moo.
A product I was definitely excited to try out, seeing as the matte lip trend is quite popular, it was interesting to see Tanya's take on it.
Martha Moo is the perfect everyday colour. I would describe this colour as a deep 90S nude, a lovely brown/dark pink combined shade that can look amazing on any skin tone.
The packaging is gorgeous, I am LOVING the frosted glass-esque finish along with the gold detailing. It makes the lip gloss look alot more luxurious, definitely pleasing to look at!

The formulation is definitely something worth talking about. This creamy lip product is so easy to apply and it wears so beautifully. The texture is so lightweight and the pigmentation is intense. So intense that you really only need a teensy amount. I was amazed at the colour pay off. Once I applied this onto the lips, the lip cream dried pretty quick and whilst other matte lip products can feel very drying and uncomfortable, this truly didn't. 
I was able to get atleast a fantastic 7-8 hours of wear time before needing to maybe touch up the centre of my lips, since I was eating a lovely hearty meal along with some Coca-Cola. Trust me guys, this matte lip product lasts! But it gets better, along with an amazing wear time, this also has a lovely delicate vanilla scent which finishes off the product nicely.
For £5.99, this is something you need to really buy and try. The quality really felt high-end and for the price, I think I need to pick up the other two shades in the range. Tanya Burr Cosmetics is available to buy at Superdrug and Feel Unique.

Top Ten Girly Hacks

Not enough time in the day and there's so much to be done! Being a girl, you need to know tips that can save time and with minimal effort so I've decided to share with you all my collection of top ten beauty hacks that every girl needs to know! 
  1. For a mess free manicure, apply Vaseline around the edges of your nails before painting and when your done, simply wipe away any stray marks without ruining you newly painted talons.
  2. Use a flesh coloured eye pencil on your waterline for those ill/tired days, it instantly brightens the eyes and hides away any redness! 
  3. Don't want cleansers that contain chemicals? well coconut oil is a pretty good makeup remover and your left with soft skin too, WIN!
  4. Don't just apply concealer onto your dark circles but apply it in triangular shape under your eyes to brighten the entire eye area.
  5. Save money by washing your makeup brushes with baby shampoo, it's very gentle and removes all of the make up effectively just like any brush cleaner would.

  1. Spray on some rose water or a vitamin infused primer spray before applying your base makeup, it creates the perfect base and makes applying foundation a whole lot easier.
  2. Sooth dry feet by applying lots of Vaseline or moisturiser onto your feet, then wear some cozy socks. The lotion or Vaseline will work it's magic whilst you are asleep and you'll have baby soft feet.
  3. I love products that I can use in more than one way, Use a cream blusher to add colour to both your cheeks and lips if you have less time.
  4. Add a lil peppermint oil into your lipgloss to give your lips a plumping boost
  5. Hide a growing out mani with glitter! Simply paint the bottom of your nail. It also gives a pretty neat ombre look too!
