MUA Lip Gloss in Pin Up Pink Review

MUA Lip Gloss in Pin Up Pink
I got this quite awhile ago and I've had to use it a few times to gain my full opinion on it. I usually use lipsticks but after trying the Revlon Colourburst Lipglosses I have started using more lip glosses. 

MUA Lip Gloss in Pin Up Pink
I chose the shade Pin Up Pink as this is a shade that I would wear a lot of. I really like the colour of it and it is surprisingly pigmented on the lips. 

What MUA says 'Make a statement this season with these pout perfect plumping lip glosses. Follow the catwalk craze by keeping your make up neutral and pop those lips with these pout pleasing products from MUA Professional. Whether you’re after a bold Shocking Pink, bang on trend Sienna tangerine tone or cotton Candy Pink hue; these seven sensational shades cover the looks for less this season.
Each sensuous shade contains maxi lip plumping agents for a natural looking pout with a non sticky formula!'
MUA Lip Gloss in Pin Up Pink
The applicator seems to be a lot longer than the average lipgloss which I think makes it a lot harder to control when I am applying it to my lips however this is just a personal thing and may not be what everyone thinks. 
MUA Lip Gloss in Pin Up Pink
Onto the actual product it is a plumping lip gloss and is supposed to make your lips look fuller. It does make my lips look slightly fuller but not massively but I really only bought it for the colour so I am not too bothered. I really do love the colour and I like the pigmentation but the problem I have is that it tingles my lips. It doesn't seem to just tingle it feels like its burning and the first time I tried it I took it off straight away. I think it is because it is plumping the lips. It's such a shame because otherwise I would really like it. The lasting power isn't that good it lasts about 1 or 2 but then it is a lipgloss so it is to be expected. I am also not a fan of the smell as it has a very strong plastic scent. It isn't sticky either which is another good thing about it so like I said if it didn't tingle then it would be a great product. 
MUA Lip Gloss in Pin Up Pink
Overall I have not been very impressed with this lipgloss. If it was just a lipgloss and didn't plump my lips then I'd probably love it as it wouldn't tingle my lips. A lot of people do seem to  like these lipglosses so maybe I just got a dodgy one.

ELF Contouring Blush and Bronzer Review

ELF Contouring Blush and Bronzer St Lucia

Today I want to share with you a product that I have been loving for awhile now. It is the ELF contouring blush and bronzer kit in St Lucia. I bought this awhile ago as I thought it would be handy to have a blush and a bronzer together as it would come in handy for travelling. Many people also compare it to the Nars Orgasm and Laguna duo. 

ELF Contouring Blush and Bronzer St Lucia
The blush shade is not one I'd normally go for as I usually wear pink blushes but recently I have been trying to branch out of my comfort zone and try something new so without further ado I'll start with the review. 

This is what ELF says about it 'Create a healthy and natural glow all year long with the Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder. The Blush highlights the cheeks to add a flush of colour, while the Bronzer accents and contours cheekbones for beautiful definition.' 

The packaging is very akin to Nars packaging in that it is black and sleek but unlike Nars this is made of matte black plastic. I love the huge mirror that comes with this as it makes it perfect for travelling as you don't need to bother packing a mirror. 

ELF Contouring Blush and Bronzer St Lucia
The blush is a gorgeous peachy pink which has a gold shimmer running through it. The bronzer is matte and is quite a dark shade of brown which at first caused problems for me as I am quite pale but once I got the hang of using it I was fine. I really like this product, I do tend to use the blush more often than the bronzer because I find it easier to wear. The products are quite powdery compared to other drugstore blushes but for the price you can't really complain. All in all this is a good product and I think it is worth trying I'm surprised by how often I reach for the blush considering I usually only wear pink blushes. One word of warning is that if you already own the ELF single blush in Twinkle Pink then don't get this and the blush shades are almost identical. Also if you prefer cream products then they do a cream version of this as well. 

Product: ELF contouring blush and bronzer
Price: £3.75
Shades: St Lucia, Antigua (blush= bright pink with shimmer) and Turks and Caicos (blush= rose mauve with gold shimmer)

How To Survive During Your AS Year

Last Thursday was GCSE results day for many people in the UK. I hope all of you got the grades that you wanted and are very pleased with yourselves. I wanted to share with you my experience of my first year in sixth form as I'm sure many of you will be going to sixth form in December. For those of who don't know how the system works I will briefly explain it. At the age of 16 everyone in the UK takes exams in the core subjects (English, Maths and Science) and they choose the other subjects they want to take. I took history, geography and French. Different schools will offer different subjects and have different criteria eg. at my school we had to take a language and I know at other schools they had to take technology subject (cooking, textiles, resistant materials etc) After your GCSEs you have a choice of what you do after you can go to sixth form to do A levels, go to college where you can do A levels or a more vocational course, do an apprenticeship or go out and get a job. There may be other options but these are the ones that I am aware of. 

I chose to go to sixth form as this was the best option for me. This meant that I stayed at the same school but some people do change schools at this time. I'll talk briefly about settling in to a new school and making friends as I haven't experienced this I am no expert on it. I would say be yourself, get involved in activities that the school runs and remember there are other people in the same boat as you. 

Onto the lessons, I did English Literature, Geography, Business Studies and Psychology. I enjoyed most of them apart from English as I found it a lot harder than GCSE and I didn't particularly enjoy the material that we covered. Obviously different schools do different things so don't be worried this is just my experience yours will be completely different. I found subjects that I hadn't done at GCSE a lot easier as you started working at A level level straight away so there wasn't a big jump which I found in English and  Geography. I'm sure you've already been told this but A levels is a big jump from GCSE you need to do a lot more work. 

One of my top tips is to stay on top of homework you get a lot more at A level and a shorter time to do it in. At my school we were given study time so I did my homework then but if your school doesn't offer this make sure you try and do your homework on the day that it was set as it quickly builds up. Revision is another key thing you need to make sure you are revising as exams quickly creep up on you. Try and keep your notes up to date and copy up anything you miss. 

My last tip is enjoy your time at sixth form as it only happens once. Try and take all the opportunities that your school offers you as you'll regret it otherwise. I wish I'd done more of the things my school offered me. Although I did get to go on some great trips, I was lucky enough to go to Iceland  and I got to see some great plays as well. 

I hope you enjoy your year whatever you are doing and if you have any questions don't be afraid to contact me. I would be happy to answer any questions you have about GCSEs, choosing your options or A levels any question you have I'll try to answer it as best as I can.

NOTD: Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Passionfruit

I picked up Passionfruit whilst I was on holiday as Boots had an offer of buy 1 get one half price (I believe this offer is still on). I love the formula of the Gelly Hi Shines if you want to read my review of Greenberry then you can here.  

I chose the shade Passionfruit as I love red nail polishes and you can see my favourites here. This will definitely be added to my list of favourites.

I love the formula of these polishes it goes on really well you only need 2 coats. I love the glossy feel of the polishes. The best thing about these polishes is they last a week which I think is amazing and is great because I don't always have time to change my nail polish every 3-4 days. I love the shade range Barry M have loads of shades to choose from so there will be something for everyone. 

Have you tried these? What is your favourite shade?

Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner Review

Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner
The Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal eyeliners have been widely blogged about and I have seen this shade on many blogs and I knew I had to try it. At only £3.99 there were worth trying.
Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner
These are available in 7 shades: black, taupe, nude, silver, bronze, purple and blue. I chose the shade Nude as everyone seemed to be raving about this shade. I use this eyeliner on my waterline as it really brightens up my eyes. I do however find that at times it does look a bit strange on my eyes and I think that is because I have quite pale skin.
Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner
I really like the formula of these they are soft and creamy and they are easy to blend. I find that once you have applied them they stay put throughout the day. Sometimes with eyeliners the colour fades throughout the day but these ones don't fade although I'm not sure if this is the same with all of the colours in the range. The only problem I have found is that the product melts easily and the lid and and sides of the product can get a little messy. Overall these are a great bargain and I really want to try some of the other colours in the range particularly the black as that is the colour that I would use the most. 

Product: Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal eyeliners
Shades: black, taupe, nude, silver, bronze, purple and blue
Where can you buy it: Boots, Superdrug

I've Been Shopping Again...

So as the title suggests I have been shopping again. I went to Banbury and I did a little bit of shopping as I had a few things that I wanted to get.
Barry M gelly Hi Shine, Rimmel 60 Seconds and Collection felt liner
In Boots I bought a few things. I picked up more of the Barry M Gelly Hi Shine polishes as I love them. After trying Greenberry I have since bought 4 other colours and I plan to get more. At the moment Boots has a great offer because these are buy one get one half price so it would be rude not to pick up some new colours. The shades I got were Grapefruit and Guava. I also picked up a Rimmel London 60 Seconds polish, I saw this on Alice's blog (Bright Town Girl) and I loved the colour and I knew I had to have it. I also picked up the Collection Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner as I've been loving my winged eyeliner recently and I needed a new felt liner.
Milani blush and bronzer duos and glimmer stripes
I then went to Poundland as I usually find some great bargains. In my last haul  I showed you a Milani Blush and Bronzer Duo I really like it so I thought I would pick up some more shades I got Sunset City and Sunset Beach. I also spotted this Milani Glimmer Stripes in Pink Glimmer this product can be used on the eyes or cheeks. You can use the colours individually or blended together. I can't wait to try these products as they look so pretty.
Mellor & Russell Hair Oil
I also spotted this Mellor & Russell Hair Oil and I thought it was worth trying as it was only £1. I have tried a few hair oils and I really like them so hopefully this will be ok. 

Makeup Sponge
Lastly I picked up another Makeup Sponge from H&M as I love to use them to apply makeup. They are dupe of the Beauty Blender but at a fraction of the price. This one costs just £1.99 so is well worth trying. 

What have you bought recently?

Naturally Radiant Renewing Night Cream Review

Naturally Radiant  Renewing Night Cream
After trying the hot cloth cleanser from the same range I knew I wanted to try some of the other products in the range. About a month ago I finished my Botanics night cream and I knew I wanted to try the Naturally Radiant one. I have been using it for just over a month now so I wanted to share my opinions with you.
Naturally Radiant  Renewing Night Cream
This range from Superdrug uses plant extracts within its products.This particular product has kiwi extract and mulberry extract which helps brighten the skin.  The fruit acids help naturally exfoliate the skin and the sugar beet helps moisturises the skin.
Naturally Radiant  Renewing Night Cream
The product has a herbal scent which I believe the whole range has. I quite like the scent but some people may not like the scent although once on your skin the scent does not linger.
Naturally Radiant  Renewing Night Cream
The packaging is quite simple it has a lovely colour which all the packaging in the range has. There is 75ml of product which is quite a lot for the price. The full price of the cream is £5.99 but at the moment the Naturally Radiant range is on offer so it is only £2.99 which is a bargain.

Naturally Radiant  Renewing Night Cream
The  cream is quite thick but it doesn't feel greasy on my skin. I find that it sinks in really well and when I wake up in the morning my skin feels moisturised and I think it does look more radiant. This product claims to even out skin tone but I haven't noticed that it does this. 

Overall I really like this cream and I recommend it as it is very moisturising and leaves my skin feeling very soft. 

Have you tried this?

NOTD: Maximillian Strasse Her and Silver Shatter

Essie Maximillian Strasse Her
I got Essie Maximillian Strasse Her from Fragrance Direct for £1.99 and I thought I would try it with one of the OPI shatter I got from Poundland.
Maximillian Strasse Her and Silver Shatter
I applied OPI's Silver Shatter on top and I really love the effect it gave. I really liked the shatter look as it was something different from my usual glossy nail colour. Maximillian Strasse Her is an unusual shade and not one I'd usually go for but I'm really glad that I did as it is something different and it made a change.

Holiday Haul

Whilst I was away on holiday I picked up a few beauty items and I thought I would share them with as I love reading haul posts. Most of this stuff was bought in Boots or Superdrug.
Firstly I wanted to pick up the new Collection Eyeshadow Pencil to give them a try and see how they compare to the Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Stick . I got the shade Vanilla Sky which is a metallic cream colour. I haven't tried it yet but from the swatches I have done I am very excited to try it. I also picked up the much loved Lasting Perfection Concealer I am going to say something that may shock you but I have never tried this concealer despite all the hype that it has. I don't know why I've never tried it I think it may have been scared that it was over hyped and wouldn't actually be very good but I am impressed. I have only used it once but I really like it the coverage it gave was really good and I can see why so many bloggers love it. At the time they had an offer on if you spent £4 you got a free nail polish and I choice the shade Neon Art I love the nail polishes as they are amazing quality for such a low price.

Next I picked up 2 new Barry M Gelly Hi Shine polishes because I have become a massive fan of them. After trying Greenberry  and loving it I knew I'd have to pick up some more shades. Whilst I was in Boots I noticed that they were on offer buy one get one half price so I snapped up 2 colours and I plan to pick up more. I got the shades Passion Fruit (you all know I love red polishes) and Blueberry which I saw on the shop assistant in Argos and I knew I had to have it because it is such a pretty blue colour. 

I didn't actually need these 2 items but the offer was too good to refuse. I have never tried a Seventeen mascara and when I saw that they'd bought out a new one I thought I would give it a go this was helped along by the fact that if you bought the new Back Lash mascara you got the Back Lash eyeliner for free so I thought it was a great deal so I picked up the mascara not that I actually need a new mascara as I have tons on the go already. 

Next I got the L'Oreal Micellar Solution I've heard a lot of people comparing this to Bioderma and I love this sort of product to remove my eye makeup so I thought it was worth giving it a try. 

I got the last few items from Poundland. As you can see I picked up 6 OPI nail polishes for a £1 each. They are shatter ones but that doesn't bother me and they were worth getting as they were such a low price. I also picked up a Milani blush and bronzer duo I picked this up as I liked the colour of it and the bronzer was matte and since I don't have many bronzers I thought it was worth getting. 

What have you picked up recently?

My Top Pink and Red Nail Polishes

Pink and Red Nail Polishes
As I have mentioned previously I love pink and red nail polish. I love the way these 2 colours look on my nails, I think they really complement my skin tone. Today I thought I would share with you some of my favourites. 

The first 2 are from Nails Inc. a brand that I love. The polishes are amazing quality and they have a good range of colours. OMP is a bright pink which in some lights looks red. Both of these polishes only need two coats and they last about 5 days before they start to chip. Magazines often give Nails Inc. polishes as freebies so it is always best to keep your eyes open. Also you can sign up to become a VIP for a year (£5), when you sign up you get a free polish worth £11 which means it is definitely worth signing up even if you never buy anything else plus you get £5 to spend in your birthday month. It's Red Babez  is a bright red colour which I think is a must in everyone's collection and this one is fantastic quality and a must in my opinion despite the not so great name. 

The next polish is a bit of a shock really. When I was in H&M I was browsing and I saw the beauty section i thought I'd have a quick look to see if anything took my eye and I got this polish as it was only £1.99 and I thought it was worth trying. I was pleasantly surprised when I took this out the packaging as it had a name (Prim & Proper) I find it very annoying when brands don't give names to their products as Shade 1 doesn't sound as good as having a proper name. That aside this is a really good pink glitter,  this has chunks of pink and silver glitter and it looks lovely on top of different colours. I mostly use this on a accent finger rather than all my fingers. 

Next is a nail polish from Barry M, I am a huge fan of Barry M they have a great range of colours and lots of different formulas to choose from. Shocking Pink is a bright pink shade which I mainly use on my toes I use it on my nails as well but most of them time I have this on my toes as I love bright colours. 

Lastly is my Leighton Denny nail duo in I love juicy I got this in a magazine and it is amazing for travelling as it comes with a base and top coat. The colour is really lovely as well it is a lovely shade of red which looks lovely on my nails (if I do say so myself). 

So these are my favourite pinks and reds. Do you have a colour that you always wear on your nails? What's your favourite polish right now?

Makeup Firsts and Fails Tag

I was tagged by my good friend Becki to do this tag after reading Becki's post I was excited to do this tag as I had never heard of it before. I haven't seen many other bloggers doing this tag and I thought it would be fun to do. I am actually quite lucky because I only started wearing makeup 4 or 5 years ago so I can  easily remember my firsts and fails. 

So I can remember some of the first products that I used so I will tell you about those first before moving on to my fails. Although some of my firsts happen to be fails as well. 

My first eyedshadow was a single one from Miss Sporty it was in the shade Night which was a black colour. I was going through a gothy/emo stage in which everything had to be black I even wanted to paint my room black although I'm glad I didn't. I remember going into Superdrug looking for a black eyeshadow and being very disappointed to find that not many brands did a single black eyeshadow. At the time I thought this eyeshadow was the most blackest shade that I have ever seen but in reality it really wasn't that pigmented and look more grey than black. 

I can't remember my exact first mascara but I know it was one from Miss Sporty as all my friends had it. I remember buying it and wearing it and really liking it but when it came to take it off I couldn't get it off as it was waterproof but at the time I didn't realise this. Plus I was using makeup wipes (the horror) at the time I didn't realise that they were bad for your skin. 

My first lip product was a lip gloss from 2True and it was number 22, it was a sparkly pink that was quite sticky and not very pigmented but I loved it. Another product I remember having was a clear mascara also from 2True that claimed to make your breath fresher (not sure why I bought this) and in effect all it was was a clear gloss that had a very strong mint scent. 

Now onto my fails now there have been a few as I knew very little about makeup and my mum didn't wear much at the time (I have since persuaded her to wear a little bit of makeup) so she couldn't pass on any knowledge and I started wearing makeup long before I discovered YouTube and the beauty community. 

One of the biggest fails that I remember was wearing bright blue eyeshadow (yes you read that right bright blue) I don't know why I wore blue eyeshadow as I am very much a neutral eyeshadow girl and I barely ever wear any other colour on my lids. I can remember the day very clearly I was going on a trip to France with my school and I wanted to impress everyone so decided to wear makeup. I had recently got an issue of Top of the Pops magazine (do they even still make this!) and it came with a bright blue eyeshadow. So I decided to wear it. I had to get up early to go on the trip I think it was like 3 or 4 in the morning so it was still dark outside. I was half asleep when I applied my eyeshadow with the sponge applicator (cringe) and because it was quite dark in my house I didn't realise how bad it was until I got on the coach and my friend asked me what I had on my eyes. I was so embarrassed as I thought I looked great so I did what any normal person would do I blamed it on my mum and told my friend that my mum and made me wear it. I can't believe that I actually did this and it mortifies me that I even tried to blame it on my mum. 

I think most people have committed this crime but it is when you wear a foundation shade that is way too dark for you. I remember having a Miss Sporty (this seems to be featuring a lot in this post) foundation which I had got the middle shade as they hadn't got the lightest shade in stock and me being impatient couldn't wait for them to get it back in so I got the next shade. This was the most orangest foundation I have seen it made me look so orange that I wouldn't have been surprised if someone had mistaken me for a Wotsit (those orange crisps that you used to get) 

This is all I can think of right now but I'm sure I'll thing of some more and if I do I'll write them in another post. I tag anyone that wants to do this tag and if you do or have done this tag let me know as I'd love to read your posts.

Apologies For The Lack Of Posts

I want to apologise for my lack of posts. I haven't posted for nearly 2 weeks. I was away for 2 weeks in Wales and I scheduled posts for the first week whilst I was away but I thought I would have a week off from blogging as its good to have a break from the computer every now and then (shocking I know). This week I haven't felt up to posting anything as I have been so nervous about my AS results as I thought I'd not done very well and I was scared I wouldn't get back  into my school next year as you need to get certain grades to go on to A2. Well today was results day and I was very pleased when I opened my envelope (although I wasn't happy that I had to get up early we had to collect our results from 6-8) as I'd got the grades to get back in. There was a lot of tears of happiness and sadness today at school and although I don't particularly I am glad I got back in as I don't know what I'd do if I wasn't at school. 

So now that I am back I have tons of posts planned for you which includes tags,reviews, hauls and some makeup look posts. As I believe I have mentioned I want to become a makeup artist and I plan to go to a makeup school after sixth form so I need to start building a portfolio. I plan to create a paper version but I also want to share my looks with you. Eventually I plan to have a separate blog for this but for now I''ll be sharing them on here. 

Thank you for all your support, each follower and comment makes me really happy and now that I am back I plan to be very focused on my blog much more than I have been before. Also if you have any requests then I'd love to hear them as its nice to hear what you want to read.

Fragrance Direct Haul

I made an order from one of my favourite websites Fragrance Direct . You can find some great deals on there. They sell a range of products from perfumes to makeup and all at bargain prices. 
Nail Polishes Essie and OPI
I picked up 2 Essie nail polishes for £1.99. I got Maximilian Strasse Her and Avenue Maintain which are both lovely colours. I have about 15 Essie nail polishes in my collection and they have all been bought at discount prices. I picked up 2 OPI nail polishes for £3.99. I love OPI nail polishes and I really like pink nail polishes. I got Nothing Mousie Bout It which is a lovely top coat made up of pink hearts which is so cute. The other colour I got was I'm All Ears. I can't wait to try these polishes out. 
W7 eye primer and Rimmel lipstick
I picked up the W7 Eye Primer as my ELF one has nearly run out so I thought I'd pick up this one to give it a try. I then picked up a Rimmel lipstick in Sweetheart Tulips. I love the colour of this and I can't wait to try it out. 

Zuri Brightening Skin Renew Face Mask
I then picked up some products from Zuri Skincare which is made by Sleek Makeup. I picked up the Face Mask as I need a new one, The Brightening Skin Renew Night Serum and the face moisturiser. I can't wait to try theses products and I will be reviewing them all soon.

Summer Essentials Fashion Edition

So I've already shared with you my makeup and beauty summer essentials and today I thought I would share with you my fashion summer essentials.
Topshop Mint Green Dress
Now this dress summarises 2 of the things that I love about summer. I love wearing cute dresses in the summer ones that flow and either have a pretty colour or a lovely floral pattern. The second thing that I love about this dress is the colour. I love mint green I am obsessed with the colour. If there is something that is mint green then I have to have it. This dress was actually a charity shop find it was from Topshop originally and when I bought it, it still had the tags on it so it was as good as new. The best part about it was that it was a bargain at £5. 

The next summer must have is sandals. I love wearing sandals as I am able to show off my painted toe nails which always have a bright colour on during the summer. I own many sandals and this picture just shows a couple of the ones I own. I have a peach pair which is from Tesco I love the design of the straps and they were only £3 as I got them at the end of summer last year. They did many colours of them and I also have a sparkly gold pair. I have noticed that they have some similar ones in this year. The other pair are a sort of gladiator with a beautiful peacock style feather on them. I have a gorgeous blue maxi dress that I love wearing them with. I got them from Peacocks a couple of years ago. 
Mint Green Satchel Bag
The next thing I love is this mint green satchel style bag that was a birthday gift from my sister. I love the style and the colour of this bag. I also love the pink edging it has around it. The lining of the bag is also really pretty it has a cute floral design. In the summer I prefer to carry a smaller bag and although this is quite small it can fit a lot in it. 
Summer  jewellery
I am not a massive jewellery wearer but I do have a few bits that I love to wear during the summer. I love rose gold and I think it is a perfect colour for the summer. I have my Lipsy charm bracelet which I love. It is a bit like a Pandora bracelet but you buy it like it is with all the charms on it. I got this as a Christmas present one year and I love it. The rose gold bracelet is from Primark and I think it was £1.50. I love the style of it  and I think it looks gorgeous. The spike necklace is from Dorothy Perkins I love their jewellery and they always have amazing bargains in the sale. My earrings where a gift from my friends I love the colour and I think the flower design is perfect for summer. Lastly is my watch, I actually wear this watch all year round but I think it is perfect for the summer it is from New Look who stock some amazing watches. 
Red or Dead Sunglasses
Lastly are my sunglasses. I wear prescription glasses which meant I had to get some prescription sunglasses to protect my eyes. I bought these to go to Iceland to protect my eyes from the glare. I really like these which are from Red and Dead but I got them in Specsavers. I really like the shape of these as I find a lot of sunglasses are too big and don't suit my face shape but I really like these.

What are your summer must haves?

July Favourites

It's that time again for favourites. This month has gone so quickly and I am now on my summer holidays. I haven't been loving a lot this month as I've mainly stuck to the same things but there has been a few stand out products for me. 

The first thing I have been loving is Superdrugs Naturally Radiant Night Cream I really like this stuff. It smells amazing and isn't too thick. I apply it before I go to bed and although it sinks in quickly my skin is really soft when I wake up in the morning. 

The next thing I have been loving is a face wash from Arran Aromatics this is a Scottish. I have been loving this lavender and tea tree face wash. This has bits of actual lavender in which helps exfoliate the skin it also has tea tree in which helps prevent spots. I use this after using my hot cloth cleanser and I have been loving how it leaves my skin fee

Now onto makeup favourites this month they are all eye products. Firstly is the Avon SuperShock gel eyeliner which I got free in an issue of Marie Claire. This is very similar to the Rimmel Scandaleyes eyeliners. I love this eyeliner as it is a very pigmented black and unlike my MUA one it doesn't fade during the day. I love wearing it on my waterline and also to line my upper lash line. 

My  next favourite is the Rimmel Scandaleyes eye shadow stick in Bulletproof Beige. I love the colour of this, it is a gold shimmery colour and I love wearing this by itself. I have just been adding it to my lids and blending it out as it is a very quick look to do. 

My last favourite is the Model Co. Lashxtend mascara that I got in Glamour magazine. I love this because it lengthens my lashes and makes them look lovely. The mascara doesn't budge which is good in these warmer months but when it comes to removing it comes off easily. I also like that it has a mirror on it which means I can apply it on the go which I go sometimes if I haven't had much time in the morning to get ready.
