January Makeup Favourites!!

Hi everyone, 

So January is over … like how is that possible? I will be trying to do these makeup videos once a month, however I will ask you guys on my social media if you wish to see them before filming the video!! Or else I can do a blog post instead! Anyways, enough rambles and let’s get on with the blog post!

In this month I kind of started using some new things, however I also kept using some old products too that I loved throughout 2017!

#1 – 3INA – The Fixing Spray

IMG_3416

I love using this Spray to set my makeup after having applied it! It just sets so nicely and makes my skin look even better! The only thing I don’t like about is that sometimes the pump is faulty and produces more water than a nice spritz! Also, it has a lovely smell to it!

#2 – PS… Primer Water

IMG_3415

This is a product from Primark and their makeup. I have seen quite a bit of other youtubers mention this in their primark haul. So when I came back to Scotland after my christmas break I went ahead and bought it. I love spraying this on my face before applying any makeup or even on a no makeup day I still spray it. It hydrates my skin and makes it look glow-y!

#3 – Pixi Skin Treats – Rose Flash Balm Instant Skin Booster

IMG_3403

This is such a great product. I would like to thank Pixi Beauty UK for it! It is a 3 in 1 product as you can use it as a moisturiser, mask or primer! I love using it as a primer mostly, it decreases my pores and creates a nice base. When I applied it as a mask I had a lot of redness and my skin felt sticky.

#4 – Makeup Revolution – I Heart Makeup Chocolate Orange Eyeshadow Palette

This is one of the newest releases from Makeup Revolution. I love their palettes, their great quality, some are dupes of other high end brands and they also come in a cheaper price! The colour selection of this palette is great to create a number of looks and I see myself using this in a Valentine’s Day makeup look!

#5 – Colourpop – All I see is Magic Eyeshadow Palette

I thought the palette would be slightly bigger so be aware guys as the size of the palette on the website may fool you! The colour selection in this palette varies and I just love it! The quality of these shadows are amazing and super blendable!

#6 – Max Factor – Healthy Skin Harmony Miracle Foundation – Light Ivory with SPF 20

IMG_3424

One of the newest foundations from Max Factor and I just love it! I love using it to create simple everyday makeup looks but even for a night out its great! It lasts long and is really lightweight! It just makes your skin look flawless!

#7 – Collection – Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer

IMG_3439

This is such a great concealer to highlight and brighten under your eyes! And for the price it is even more amazing! There is a foundation of Collection alongside this concealer that isn’t my cup of tea but this concealer is just great and it is a favourite of mine from 2017!

#8 – PS….Insta Girl Rice Powder

IMG_3422

This is another Primark product and it is just so impressive! I love baking with this, it just sets my concealer so nicely without creasing. It is a loose powder to set makeup and it also helps in absorbing oils.

#9 – Soap and Glory – Archery Eyebrow pencil

IMG_3437

I love this brow pencil to fill in my brows! It also helps me fill them in so easily! I just love it and again this came with me from 2017!

#10 – Max Factor – Natural Brow Gel

IMG_3428

You have heard me mention this product in a number of videos/blog posts! I just love using this to set my brows! It’s my number one setting brow gel!

#11 – Essence Super Last eyeliner in deep black

IMG_3427

This eyeliner creates such a rich and thick black line! It is great for creating that cat wing look and it doesn’t transfer and dries down so fast!!!

#12 – Milani illuminating face powder in Amber Nectar

IMG_3418

I love using this to add some colour to my pale face. When I don’t want to bronze or contour my face I love using this to give me a natural pink colour to my skin.

#13 – H&M Bronzing Powder

IMG_3423

This is a great natural bronzing powder. I love using it on everyday makeup looks, I just think that it leaves me with a nice bronzed face which isn’t too much!

#14 – Rimmel Wonderfully Real Mascara with Keratin

IMG_3419

This mascara is great as it also has Keratin, so it is helping your lashes too! You should be careful of this mascara because it can be a bit too liquidy and can transfer! But it creates nice volume and length.

#15 – L’Oreal Paradise Extatic Mascara

IMG_3436

I absolutely love the effect that this mascara gives to your lashes. It enhances them, lengthens and volumises them. It can get a bit clumpy but overall it is a great product!

#16 – Makeup Revolution Liquid Highlighter in Liquid Starlight

This is a buildable highlight, you can create the tiniest of highlights but use more and you’ll have the shiniest highlight beam out there! The liquid highlighters come in a number of colours so be sure to check that collection out!

#17 – NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm

I love the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. Their formula is just the best, very lightweight and not drying. And this shade in Stockholm is just super pretty especially for a natural makeup look!

#18 – Essence Matt Matt Matt Lipstick in shade 03 Wow Effect

IMG_3440

I just love this lipstick, both the formula and the colour choice is great. I love wearing this when I am going for a more natural makeup look!

#19 – Golden Rose Long-lasting Liquid Lipstick in shade 18

Best red in the entire collection and one of my favourite reds that I have in my lip collection! I just love the formula of these lip sticks and they have a tonne of shades so be sure to check them out!

#20 – Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte lipstick in Nude

This shade is gorgeous, it’s darker to the Stockholm shade mentioned before. I love the packaging of these lipsticks and they are just amazing! Not too drying or sticky, and last all day!!

#21 – Essence Matt Matt Matt longlasting lipgloss in Shade 11 Drama Club

If you are looking for a gorgeous plum shade then try this out! The formula of these lipsticks can sometimes be a hit or miss depending on the shade. This can be a bit patchy but you can work your way around it!

#22 – Essence soft contouring lip liner in shade 09 going steady

This is a great lip liner, so smooth and it glides on nicely. And the shade is great and mauvey!

#23 – Sand and Sky Purifying Pink Clay Mask

I have done a separate blog post about this so you can check it out by CLICKING HERE. But this mask is great for people who have acne or had too and still have acne scars. It also helps in reducing the appearance of pores!

Sand and Sky – Pink Clay Mask – Honest Review

Hi everyone, 

Hope you all are doing great and having a lovely day!! Today’s blog post is all about a Face Mask that I am sure some of you guys have seen on social media!

IMG_3176

This mask is the Purifying Pink Clay Mask from Sand and Sky. I have already mentioned this mask on my blog as I genuinely love it. But this time I collaborated with Sand and Sky and I thank them so much for such an opportunity!!

What the face mask claims to do …

  • It detoxifies and brightens up the skin
  • It is made up of 100% natural Australian Ingredients and Pink Clay. It is Paraben free and other nasty ingredients.
  • It gives your skin a lovely glow and helps the skin regenerate. It also removes toxins and helps clear skin and shrink pores.

My thoughts on the mask … 

IMG_3146

When simply applying it onto my face I feel my skin feeling cool and then after it feels a little bit warm but dies down quickly. I apply it after I cleanse my face.

I leave it on for ten minutes and then wipe it off using a damp face cloth (dampened with warm water).

IMG_3163

After taking off the mask, I notice my skin to be brighter and freshened up. I also feel my skin ever so smooth. What I love most about the face mask is the fact that it decreases the appearance of my pores. It also cleans my skin and helps rid of red spots.

IMG_3141

For those of you who have acne or had acne and have acne scars, I think it is a face mask worth trying. I love how my skin feels after using this mask and like how it helped my cleanse my skin.

Here is a photo of my skin from before and after using the mask.

To view more information on the mask you can visit their website by clicking here.

Also a side note: for dry skin it is best to use just 1 to 2 times per week and for oily/combination skin best to use 2 to 3 times per week. Also, the website offers free worldwide shipping!

Have you guys ever tried out this face mask? Comment down below! Even if you haven’t, I would love to hear your thoughts on the mask. 

I really hope you enjoyed reading! Thank you so much for doing so!!

Blogmas Day 5 🎄🎅🏻☃️ – Christmas Gift Ideas 2017 (For Her)

Hi everyone, 

We are already 5 days into BLOGMAS!! Going Strong!!

So today’s blog post is all about Christmas Gift Ideas (For Her). I will be mentioning 10 ideas that I think would be great Christmas Gifts.

#1 Morphe – 35O2 – Second Nature Eyeshadow Palette – Retails for $23

Screen Shot 2017-12-04 at 19.39.15

This palette has been talked about a lot and in my opinion has the loveliest of shades. (I just got mine and cannot wait to play around with it!) But I think this would make for a perfect Christmas gift as it has vibrant shades, the quality is just amazing and you just get so much in the palette! You can create so many looks!! I think this would be an amazing Christmas gift!

#2 Makeup Revolution – Soph X Eye shadow Palette – Retails for $10 

IMG_2441

If you want something slightly cheaper than the gift above, any eyeshadow palette from Makeup revolution would honestly be great! But one that I know you cannot go wrong with is this one right here. I just made a makeup tutorial using this palette and I think it is just so pigmented, the shadows blend well, you get a great variety of colours and it is only $10! What more can a girl want!! And it comes in the cutest packaging and if your friend/girlfriend/daughter/whoever loves watching Youtubers then she would definitely love this as this was a Collab with SophDoesNails!

#3 Jeffree Star Cosmetics – Velour Liquid Lipstick Holiday Collection – Retails for £16 each 

Screen Shot 2017-12-04 at 19.53.50

There are 8 different shades of these lipsticks and they all look stunning. I personally haven’t tried these but I think giving any Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick would be amazing. In this collection you can choose from either a matte or metallic finish. I think they are a great Christmas Gift Idea!

#4 Sand & Sky – Brilliant Skin Purifying Pink Clay Mask – Retails for £39.50

Screen Shot 2017-12-04 at 19.53.32

Yes this is a little pricey, but wait I will give you a cheaper alternative don’t worry! But this mask I think is perfect for those girls who love face masks, love having their weekly chill session and relaxation time! It is a great face mask that brightens and clears your skin! It dries so quickly and feels amazing after rinsing it off!

#5 Garnier Face Masks – Retails for £2.99 

1-choose-the-mask-for-your-skin-type

I told you I would give you an alternative face mask which is much cheaper. You can buy different types of these Garnier face masks and they are amazing too. You can reuse these and they are so hydrating and refreshing on your skin!! You can make a cute little gift set with these!! These could also be stocking fillers!

#6 Zoella Snowella Fragrance Gift Set – Retails for £14 

Screen Shot 2017-12-04 at 19.51.17

In this set, you get a body lotion and a body set. You can buy them separately but honestly I think buying the set is much more worth both for the quantity you get and for the value of money. I love Zoella’s products and the Snowella body mist just smells so sweet and cute! I think that this gift is perfect for those girls who love spraying anything during anytime of the day!!

#7 Zoella Snowella Brew Me a Bath Gift Set – Retails for £12

Screen Shot 2017-12-04 at 19.54.36

This set is perfect for those girls who enjoy taking baths! The gift set includes a bath tea bag and a bath milk powder! They come so cutely packaged and the girls who love baths would thank you for them !! Maybe they never used a bath tea bag but from then on they would do so! And again it is from Zoella so if the girl you are buying the gift for loves Youtubers then I am sure she would love this! Anything from Zoella is actually a cute Christmas Gift Idea!

#8 Touch LED Light Illuminated Make Up Vanity Mirror – Retails for £8.95 

Screen Shot 2017-12-04 at 19.58.24

This is the cutest mirror that someone could add to their vanity. So many people have talked about and bought it. And so many people loved it. I think it is a cute gift idea and is an inexpensive one too!

#9 Kylie Cosmetics – The Naughty or Nice Kyshadow Palettes –  Retails for $44 each

This gift is for those who are Kylie Cosmetics fan. Both these palettes are currently in stock and their shades look equally cute. Which palette you choose for a gift depends on the person who you are buying it hehe! I think that any girl would love this … but that’s my opinion so I might be wrong!! (Just be careful as they might not arrive before Christmas, I ordered mine on November 27th and they haven’t even been shipped yet 😦 )

#10 Zoella Journal – Retails for £15

Screen Shot 2017-12-04 at 20.03.17

This is for those girls who loves note taking or journaling or writing to do lists! And yes it is another Zoella product but like I said, Zoella has some amazing gift ideas from her collection! I think that this journal had to make it into my list of Christmas ideas for her as it is just too cute!
