Super late March Fav’s 

So late it’s almost not worth posting. But it’s something to post and I haven’t posted in a few days due to work.

(Excuse the poor images and grubby backgrounds I’m having one of those weeks).

I’m super late to the party with this one! I remember being in school watching YouTuber’s going crazy over this and I would always pick it up convince myself I need it walk round the shop and realise I literally was too broke to spend money on make up I probably won’t wear. 
I say won’t wear because I’ve always shied away from bronzers because I’m so pale. Which is probably one of the worst things I could have done because I have no colour to me whatsoever I actually look ill. I literally can’t imagine life without this bronzer I’ve tried many and they leave harsh terracotta coloured marks on my face and just aren’t any good for me. 

This however this is buildable this isn’t too dark it’s just right for me. The shimmer in it isn’t that God awful bronzer shimmer is a slight tint of subtle shimmer and I love it. 

Smells great too! It’s suppose to smell like chocolate? I wouldn’t say it smells of chocolate at all but it is a nice smell. 

Everyone’s tried these right? I love these I have a few now and they’re my go to’s so easy and I love a matte finish. This particular one is in the shade Dubai, and I’m loving it right. Definitely is a spring colour but does England even get a spring/summer anyway? 
Love the applicator and the size yet to be disappointed by NYX lovely brand. 

This is crazy because I never use concealer’s I just can’t find one light enough for my skin. This one by Rimmel however isn’t too bad and I’m loving how it looks it definitely brightens my under eye a bit. (I say a bit because I have constant dark circles due to the hours I work).
But this pleasantly surprised me and I’m glad I had a sudden impulse buy moment now. I wasn’t too sure about the brush nib it applies with but after using it I actually like it a lot! 

This has changed my life. I can’t even explain. For years now I’ve always stuck to my Revlon Colourstay just because I like it and it works for me. I have brought the odd MAC foundations here and there I just don’t fancy the prices much. 
This however this is flawless it blends nice the coverage is amazing and it honestly doesn’t feel like I have a full coverage foundation on. It doesn’t look cakey -although this could depend on the amount applied and how it’s blended.

I was worried it would be really matte but I still get a dewy look with this and I’m just super impressed and for the past 2 months I haven’t really used my Recvlon Colourstay at all. I feel like everyone needs to at least try this. 

One of those things that everyone’s gone on about again. But I’m really appreciating this right now. I use it as a primer, but that’s not why I’m loving it. 

I’ve been really ill recently resulting in me sweating like nobodies business 24/7. (Gross I know but everyone sweats). This post shave balm is a cooling one and it’s helped to cool me down a bit and I’ve found myself putting this on my arms just to help from feeling rubbish.

Anyway back to using it as a primer is works and is much cheaper for the amount you get and I’ve literally had this for what feels like forever.

This is a moisturiser I swear by. It’s from a honey farm in Cornwall and I must have like 3 tubs I stocked up although this stuff lasts foreverrrrrrrr.

Honey is great for your skin and I feel like my skin really appreciates this when I use it. I usually use it before I go to bed, I used to use it in the mornings but I felt it was a little to heavy. Still a great product though.

I know this isn’t an easy product to get but is a favourite I wanted to share. Definitely recommend products with honey it helps my skin so much.

It’s a boring one and I won’t go into detail, but this has been a life saver! I tend to chew/bite my lips when I think and let’s just say this helps so much and stops them from being so sore.

Again I won’t speak too much on this because I already did a post on this range. But this my far is my favourite thing although I didn’t have it in March I just can’t not include it. This makes my skin feel like it really is clean and it leaves it feeling great.

W7 Eyeshadow Palettes


About 2 months ago I got really fed up of my make up collection and wanted to build it up a bit and experiment a bit more. However, I didn’t want to spend a load of money on only a few products as I tend to blow all my money on food! So to Amazon I went and did a bit of searching and I came across these W7 palettes.

These had loads of great reviews and they were so cheap! People compared them to the Urban Decay Naked palettes and although the colour pay off isn’t as great it still beats paying all that money. 

I’ve been using these for a while now and I’m really quite pleased like I said the colour pay off could be better but for the money I refuse to complain. I think I managed to pick these up for £2/3 each which is crazy! Can create simple everyday looks or night looks all with just one palette! This would be great for travelling because you’ve got what you need in one tin. And that’s another thing I love the tins so easy to keep clean and looks good too! 

If you’re a beginner with make up or fancy experimenting a bit or just don’t want to spend much money, this is definitely for you. I would highly recommend.

Small Haul

 So many things I wanted to share with you guys the past month but with work and birthday celebrations I found it almost impossible. So why not show you a few things I brought recently? 

Firstly the Head and Shoulders scalp relief shampoo this is a repurchase and featured in my February favourites I love this and had to run out and pick this up as soon as I finished my other bottle! Highly recommended for dandruff or prehaps people who often wear their hair tight. 

I then brought the Garnier ultimate blends shampoo in rice cream and oat meal this smells lush! I brought this because I actually use the conditioner and I like to use another shampoo along side the Head and Shoulders one as it doesn’t smell the best. So I just brought this to go with my conditioner and it was on offer for £2 in boots, bonus! 

I then brought the Eylure accents 005 eyelashes and I brought these because as you can see I also brought the Fleur De Force ones. It was my birthday last weekend and the Fleur De Force ones are my favourite I really the 3/4 ones but I wanted something a little bit more dramatic for my birthday so I picked these ones up and I loved them.

I then picked up the Maybelline Colour Tattoo 24hr Gel-cream eyeshadow to in 93 Crème de Nude. I had heard amazing things about these so I eventually got round to picking this one and since have picked up a few more and I’m half tempted to do a review on them. I really had no reason for buying this I just fancied trying something different.

I then got the Revolution loose banana powder obviously banana powders been a massive thing over the past year and I had never tried it. So again I got this to try something new, I think I’ve been getting really bored of the products I use and just want to try new bits.

The Rimmel Stay Matte powder was the next thing I got again a repurchase and a pretty boring one everyone and their mum has this. But it is a great affordable powder and I just so happened to run out of mine. 

And lastly some Primark nails because why not? I do have clothes to show but I didn’t want to include them in this I wanted a separate clothes haul. Still thinking about how I’d display items but keep an eye out for that! Primark nails aren’t amazing however if you need nails quickly for an event they’re great and these ones were reduced down to 50p! And although you’ll very rarely see blue appear on here I do love the colour!
