Welcome back to my blog, today I am going to be talking about some eyeshadow palettes by Maybelline.
I have 4 different ones to talk about so let’s get started.
The Rock Nudes
This is the perfect palette for darker days. These aren’t colours I normally go for but it’s always good to have them in your collection. So they come with 12 different shades. I won’t lie, this one isn’t my favourite, not because it’s bad it’s actually really good. I love how the colours always look once applied.
The Graffiti Nudes
I just want to talk about these amazing colours, they are so pretty!. These colours are definitely more my style. The colours aren’t as big as they aren’t in the other palettes for some reason. There is a few matte shades but not that many. These colours are so easy to blend, it barley takes any effort. I feel like these colours are perfect for any party look.
The 24 Karate Nudes
This palette has so many different colours to get creative with. What I love about these palettes is how pigmented the colours are. For me they just work so well. They might not be the be the best palettes you can buy but I still love them. This palette I will never get bored of. The colours bend together beautifully.
The Blushed Nudes
This hands down is my favourite palette of them all. These are the colours that I love the most. I wore this palette in summer nearly everyday. These colours are just so pigmented and easy to blend that I pretty much always reach for this palette. Again this palette only has a few mattes so if you don’t like shimmers I wouldn’t recommend these. But I love shimmers and mattes so that doesn’t bother me.
These palettes are perfect for a quick but beautiful look, I do wear these for work and the colours actually stay pigmented for a while without eye primer.
Thank you so much for reading.
Welcome back to another blog post. So around this time of year I always love a good Red lipstick. I actually did a post like this last year.
But I have some different Red lipsticks I just have to talk about.
I didn’t wear much makeup in Summer so now it’s Winter I will be doing more makeup reviews. And let’s get started with the post.
Jeffree Star – Masochist
For a while I have wanted a Jeffree Liquid Lipstick. And now I finally have one and I am so happy about it. I actually really like the packaging on this product because it’s pink. What I love about the applicator is you don’t have a lot of product going onto your lips at once. It is very easy to apply, it just glides on which I love. Once on your lips it actually dries quiet quickly which is always a good thing. After a while this product can be a bit drying but if you put lip balm underneath it stops that. The colour actually stayed on for a really long time even when eating and drinking. I would definitely recommend buying this.
Makeup Revolution- Lady
Now I am surprised this lipstick is in my favourites as it only cost me £1, but I really love it. I don’t really like the packaging on this but for the price of it I can’t go wrong. The colour is beautiful and is actually very pigmented. The only thing I don’t really like about this product is as soon as you eat or drink anything the colour comes of a lot. So you do need to re apply the colour constantly in the day which can be really annoying but I just love the colour and the lipstick so I don’t mind doing it.
Rimmel Kate- 51 Muse Red
I have always been a big fan of Rimmel lipsticks so it’s no surprise one is included in this post. The packaging is so nice. I love this colour as it’s a true Red with shimmer which looks amazing. Applying this lipstick is like a dream it’s so easy and it just glides on, it takes no effort at all. The colour is very pigmented which I love. The colour is amazing at lasting throughout the day, it hardly ever needs a touch up so you don’t have to spend a lot of time making sure it looks good.
Max Factor – Scarlet Ghost
I went through a stage of loving MaxFactor lipsticks but I still have one that I love a lot. Its not a true red colour like I normally go for but I still love it. The packaging is ok but it does scratch quiet easily which is annoying. The lipstick it’s self applies really well and doesn’t take much effort. The colour is amazing once it’s applied. The colour lasts through eating and drinking which is always a really good thing, I wouldn’t change anything about this lipstick.
So these are a few of my favourite Red lipsticks I love.
Thank you all so much for your amazing support.
Today I thought it would be fun to talk about 5 things I have learnt this year. It’s getting to the end of 2017 and it has definitely changed me in a good way. And I have definitely learnt a lot about myself.
- I’m going to have bad days and that’s ok. I’ve had a lot of bad days, but this year I have learnt how to deal with them.
- Things don’t always go the way you plan and that’s ok. It’s safe to say not everything will go right, but sometimes you get something better.
- Loving yourself isn’t easy, but it can be done. I have definitely started to love myself more this year, and my confidence has definitely improved.
- You will be happy again. I never thought I would be happy. But this year has proved that wrong, my life is now on track.
- All you can do is be yourself. It has taken me years to accept myself, but I have finally done it. Just be yourself and you will get by all the hard times.
I just thought this post would be nice to look back on. I have changed so much over this year and it’s nice that people have seen an improvement in my confidence.
If your having a bad day, just remember all the good ones you have had.
What have you learnt this year?
Today I am going to be talking about some products that were kindly sent to me.
Feather & Down is a sleeping company created for sleep. They help encourage relaxation and a state of wellbeing to help aid sleep.
They have lots of different products to help you relax before bed, bath and body, even home fragrance products.
For a while I have had problems falling asleep. When it comes to bed time I just can’t fall asleep and nothing so far has 100% worked for me.
So when I got sent these products I was so excited to try them. You can buy these products in Boots stores and online.
So they kindly sent me 3 products to try out, a pillow spray, a sleep balm and a body oil. I wasn’t sure if these products would help or not. I have bad luck when it comes to getting sleep. But I am so so happy and grateful for these products. They have definitely improved my sleeping pattern.
I use the Pillow Spray most nights and I only spray it 2-3 times, it helps my mind and body relax a bit more.
The Body Oil seals in moisture and it clams your senses with a blend of oils to prepare your body for a good nights sleep. This is definitely my favourite product. It feels amazing on your skin and it also relaxes my body.
The Sleeping Balm creates a clamping fragrance on your pulse points. It helps ease your mind and encourages sleep.
After using these products for a few weeks and trying them out, I can definitely see an improvement in my sleep. I have been able to fall asleep a lot quicker, I would recommend these products for anyone who has sleeping problems.
I know once I have used up these products I will be buying more. I also want to try out some of the other products they have.

Thank you so much for reading.
Sorry for the lack of blog posts, I have been ill and work has just been a nightmare recently. So to make sure a post goes up every week I will now be posting every Monday, sorry for the delays.
So today I am going to be talking about my favourite highlighters I have ever used. I have only recently started using highlighters in the past 2 months, I am so glad I did.
So I have 3 shades Radiant Cashmere, Pink Shimmer and Rosewood. You can buy them in Superdrug stores for £3. I love how many different colours they actually have.
So when I first bought these I wasn’t expecting them to be that good. But I was so wrong, these highlighters have to be in my favourite makeup products I have ever used.
These are so pigmented, you really don’t need much product on your brush to make an impact. They are also very easy to blend and it doesn’t take up much time to get the look you want. The only thing I don’t like about these products is the packaging but I’m just been picky.
I would definitely give these products a 10 out of 10. These highlighters are beautiful, pigmented and very easy to apply. And also very affordable if you are on a budget. I would definitely recommend these.
I have always loved the Baby Lips balms, so when I found out they have crayons I had to have them.
So I decided to get 3 of the colours which are so beautiful. The first one is Creamy Cameral which is a beautiful nude colour. I love how the packaging and the crayon are the same colour in and outside, I don’t no why but I love that. These crayons also contain moisturising oils which is so good.
The next shade is Playful Purple which has to be my favourite colour out of them. These colours are so pigmented, they are not patchy at all which I wasn’t expecting. As they are crayon balms I didn’t think the colour would be that good, but they are so good. These are available in drug stores for £5.99 I think.
The last colour I have is Sugary Orange which is so beautiful. These colours also have a good wear on them, when you eat and drink it hardly comes of. You might want to touch it up a little bit but not much.
Overall these products are:
- Very pigmented
- Long wear, not much touch up needed
- Very moisturising
- Easy to apply
- And they have beautiful colours
I would definitely recommend these products and I will be buying more shades.
What’s your favourite lip product?

I hope you are all well, today I have decided to do another monthly favourites. I just love writing them so much and you seem to love reading them. So why not do another one for the month of August.
So the first thing I have been loving is a bear. Now my boyfriend bought me this but it’s so cute and soft.
The Soap and Glory moisture location has to be one of the best body locations I have ever used. This smell so good, it has Shea Butter, Orange Juice Water and Almond. This makes my skin feel so soft and hydrated and it smells amazing. I love everything about this product and will definitely be buying more.
The Eye Eraser by Maybelline has to be one of my favourite makeup products of all time. This concealer cover up my dark circles perfectly which is why I love it so much. I have mine in the shade light but it is still a little dark for me, once it’s all blended out it looks fine.
I have also been loving a mascara by Maybelline. The Colossal Big Shot has to be one of my favourite mascaras by Maybelline. This is a volume mascara and I can confirm it gave my lashes so much volume it was crazy, the brush also separated my lashes perfectly so it didn’t look clumpy like some mascaras do.
I have never been that good at contour but I had to try the Rimmel Duo Contour Stick. I don’t own any other products like this but I am so glad I bought this one.
It’s so easy to apply and when blending it didn’t rub of my foundation like I thought it would and a little product actually goes a long way, I would definitely re buy this.
