My favourite make up brushes

For someone like me who wears make up practically every day and who owns a fair few make up brushes i thought i would share my favourite brushes that i use, and what i use them for!
 I do have quite the selection, and to be honest with you there are some that i never really pick up so i should pass them on to someone who would get more use out of them!
there are definitely  a fair few that i always pick up, and i do use a lot of them! mainly because i get lazy with washing my brushes, so i tend to go through most of them and then i tend to do a big batch wash.

I will start with the ones i own the most of, foundation brushes, i tend to use one for about a week then go onto a nice clean one until i am running pretty low on clean ones, thats when i tend to wash them! which i do actually enjoy doing! i would say one of the main keys to your make up is the application, the key to making it look good and flawless is to invest in some good quality make up brushes! the cheap ones tend to be …

Is primark makeup worth the hype?

Ive heard soo many good things about primark make up..yes you heard it right primark make up! that i had to test it myself! to be honest its not a make up line that i ever really thought much about or even looked at before. But i heard that they upped there game and brought out new ranges which were dupes of high end brands!
my primark beauty section isn't the biggest but they had a fair selection there and it seems over the past few months they have been getting more and more things in! i wanted to try all of  the foundations, one of which was a long wear one (i cant remember the exact name? as that one i particular is meant to be a dupe for estee lauder! they unfortunately didn't have my shade which was a real shame as i really wanted to try i but i didn't fancy walking around with a face that totally doesn't match my neck what so ever!.
Admittedly i did forget to pick up a bronzer and a contour set and a primer but i can test these at a later date. i was more inter…

my favourite products for a pamper evening

I love a good old pamper evening! from having a nice relaxing bubble bath with all my favourite bath products to a good face mask! you name it, if you call it a pamper evening you go all out! right? bath, hair, face, nails, blisssss! although i will be honest with you, i don't actually enjoy painting my nails but i do like it once they are done and are looking pretty!

So first thing is first BATH! literally my favourite thing ever. so we choose a nice bubble bath or a
bath bomb! but we are going for my bath and body works, a thousand wishes bubble bath and ohh myyy it smells insane and guess what?! the bubbles are insane too!
next up, a nice shower gel and yes! again a bath and body works one....I'm addicted to them they smell incredible and are so soft on the skin! if you live in the uk like i do and aren't lucky enough to have a bath and body works here i have a post about how to get hold of them right here in the uk yay! (if you want to check that out too)
I'm not …

My drug store forever repurchases

Sometimes we try a product that we fall in love straight away and that's it, of we go skipping off into the sun! but in the beauty world its not quite the case as there are sooo many products to test and try, with different formula's etc. so i would say normally, its pretty difficult to find ones that are spot on for us straight away!
but with beauty being a huge thing in the market these days  there are constant new releases that we are drawn to and have to try! even though you have a thousand blushers....you always want to try them even though you may not need them! get me?!

Having said all of that We all have them holy grail//life saver products that we buy over and over again because we know that they work best for us! and no matter how many other products we buy, try and may really like...we always manage to go back to our roots and go back to our favourite's! 

i LOVE trying new products but i will never leave my little saviours behind. i like to mix up what i use b…

Revolution pro foundation drops review!

Testing Testing 123!
 I have heard a lot of good things about the revolution pro foundations so obviously i had to try them out!

They are a drug store brand which are available in Superdrug and are extremely affordable!
i have tried quite a few revolution products and they haven't disappointed! makeup revolution seems to impress me more and more everyday! and the brand seems to be extending and adding more additions to the brand like the revolution pro range. So its only fair that i try the new range right?!

well they must be popular because in my superdrug they didn't have much stock in the pro full coverage camouflage foundation which is the one I'm desperate to try! (next time!)
so instead i went for the foundation drops in F5 which i should of probably gone for F4 but i can still work with F5 its just a teeny bit darker but i can still work with it so its fine!
I didn't actually realise but on the website it has details of the numbers and what skin tone it is fo…

my feb faves!

Its that time again, its my monthly favourites!!
nothing new on the make up front this month, but here are some of the things i have been loving in February!

MAC foundation brush 187- i have had this brush for quite some time but it managed to get lost with all my other brushes and never really picked it up! i think when i first used it, i couldn't get along with it but now....ohh my god i friggin love this brush! its really buffs and blends your foundation well into your skin making it look flawless- my new love!




mandara bath soak- my boyfriend got me this as one of my valentines gifts- its smells beautiful and its makes your skin really soft! its almost exactly like the soap and glory one! and its now all gone!

Champneys moisturiser-  Ive really been enjoying using this, this month, so much so that Ive used up the whole tub! its quite a thick moisturiser but really sinks in and it doesn't that leave that tacky feel, plus is smells divine.

bilou shower foam- a foaming showerge…

Rimmel lasting concealer - its a no from me

I am always on the look out for new make up to try and as i needed to get a new concealer i thought i would go with a different one instead of going for my trusty collection lasting perfection concealer! And i will be honest with you, i was in a local shop of mine which didn't stock many brands so it was more of an 'emergency buy'. I went for the Rimmel lasting finish 25hr breathable concealer in the shade 100 fair.
when i first picked it up the main thing that got me was the cushioned applicator, i was very intrigued!
so this concealer says its long lasting, breathable with medium coverage. and with the cushioned applicator it allows to blend the concealer perfectly and touch up on the go.


Trying it out- i had to really squeeze on the tube for any product to come out, and once it did i applied it under my eyes, i found the consistency very watery and didn't find that it blended in nicely at all, it goes quite streaky and i wouldn't even say it was a medium coverage…
