Products Worth Hype

Hey lovelies, I saw this video on JDRMakeup channel a while go and thought it was a good idea so I decided to do it as a blog post, you should definitely go subscribe to her channel she makes great YouTube videos.

Avon Pro 3 in 1 Lip Wand- I have the shade Solar Rose, I don't think you hear much about Avon as brand only from Pixiwoo, I love this product because it's a 3 in 1 product you have a lip liner, lipstick and lipgloss to make the perfect lips and I really love this shade.

Rimmel London Kate Moss Lipsticks- I know you hear a bit about them but I absolutely love these lipsticks, there pigmented, moisturising, matte and long lasting. I really want to try the new matte collection which I think I will soon.

MUA Mosaic Blush- English Rose, JDRMakeup mentioned this blush and I have to agree it's a great blush it is shimmery but it really brightens your cheeks up and it's really inexpensive.

L'oreal Paris- Rose Sandal I love this blush because it's the perfect pink shade for me because I'm quite pale and there is darker pinks to suit people's skin colour, it's matte, pigmented and long lasting.

Accessorize Baked Blush- Scandal, this is also a shimmery shade and brightens up your cheeks, it's a pink with gold running through it.

Models Own Blackberry Lipbalm- I don't think I've heard these being mentioned but I think there great for people who don't want to wear lipstick but want colour, there is a variety of shades to suit everyone and you can wear them as pigmented as you want, there also great for winter if you have dry lips because there very moisturising.

NYC Lipstick-Fragile Pink- it's a beautiful pink shade that I think will suit most people, it's really inexpensive and pigmented and long lasting.

Technic- High Lights, I've mentioned this before in other posts it's really inexpensive and a dupe for Benefit High Beam, it's quite long lasting and gives you a nice glow.

L'oreal Paris Glam Shine Fresh Lipgloss- Aqua Watermelon, I love these lipglosses because they aren't stick, they come in every colour shade, there really glossy and perfect over any lipstick.

NYC Liquid Lipshine- Fashion Ave Fuchsia, this is like a lipstick and lipgloss in one, it's really pigmented, long lasting and glossy, there really inexpensive as well.

Elf Eyeshadow Brushes, these are really inexpensive brushes but they get the job done to create nice eye looks.

Ebay 88 Palette- I only have this palette but I want the other palette's, this palette is great because it has every colour you need to create any sort of look, you can have the matte or shimmery palette, it's really pigmented and is perfect for travelling.

Blogging Love Tag

Hey Lovelies, the gorgeous Kayleigh from CoutureGirl made this tag a while ago and I've seen a lot of other people do this tag so I decided to do it. So you could get to know me better. You should all go follow Kayleigh she is nice and a lovely person and has a great blog.

Passion- When I was younger I always liked beauty and makeup I used to have doll that you could put makeup on and do her hair which I liked to do and then when I got older I started putting makeup on myself. I then started getting more into to makeup and buying more products and would say to my friends about these products I bought. I watched YouTube video's and read blogs and thought it was perfect for me to discuss about beauty.

Creativity- I'm not the most creative of people I was never good at art but I really liked it but when I got older and into to makeup and saw all the different looks you could create I loved the idea of doing it myself and being more creative.

Other Bloggers- That's what got me interested in blogging in the first place other bloggers. From blogging I have my #bestbloggerfriends they are the nicest most amazing friends I have made and I don't know what I would do without them, you all know who you are and mean the world to me.

Inspiration- My inspiration was from YouTube video's I've watched them for years and were another reason I started blogging and blogs of course, I was also inspired by magazines and celebrity makeup looks and wanted to try to recreate them for myself.

My Own Space- My blog is my own space to talk about makeup products and other personal issues that I think are important, I like blogging because it's personal to yourself and you can write what you want.

Blogging Aim- I just hope to carry on blogging for as long as people like reading my blog. I have 133 followers at the moment and of course I wouldn't mind more but I appreciate every one of my followers and the number doesn't bother me.

Blogging Tip- My tip would just be write what you want it's your blog it's personal to you, so write what you enjoy, don't copy anyone else's. I think a lot of people have said this but interact with all your followers there the reason you keep blogging and you need to appreciate them, you can also meet more bloggers that are like you.

Bloggers Who Inspire Me- I would say all the blogs I follow inspire me there all unique and different and personal to the person. My #bestbloggerfriends are all the most inspiring people I know and have amazing blogs.

Hope you enjoyed the tag and I tag you all to do it.

MUA Cream Blush Review

 Hey everyone, sorry for not blogging as much but I keep having a lot of work to do for college but I'll try to blog when I have free time.

MUA have recently launched a few new products, so I thought I would try there cream blushes.

I've had this cream blush for over a week and so far I really like it, I love cream blushes and I love MUA so I was really excited to try this new product.

I have the shade Bittersweet which is a pink shade, there is three other shades Dolly, Blossom and Yummy and there all £2 which is really inexpensive.

The blush is a light pink that's quite bright, i'm quite pale so it's more suitable for us than darker skin types but the other colours look perfect for darker skin.

The blush is really creamy and pigmented, I apply it with my fingers then use my stippling brush to blend it on the cheeks.

The packaging is still similar to there other products, plastic and black which is quite sleek, it's not the best packaging but what can you aspect with such cheap products. 

When I wore it didn't last very long but if you applied a powder blush over it, it will last longer.

Overall I think it's an okay product.

What do you think to MUA Cream Blushes, leave a comment below.

Hope you enjoyed.

Guest Blog Post-Nails

This is a guest post from the lovely Suzy, she emailed me about wanting to do a guest post and showed me some of her work on other blogs and i was really impressed and I'm really grateful for her doing this post for me.

Tips on Saving Costs on Your Manicure Bills
Paying for those bills for a few nail painting and nail polishing services can really hurt at times. When it comes to looking good, most of us buy clothes online or look at the brand stores that offer everything for the perfect look. We get discounts on certain occasions, which often act as a big saver, but the same doesn’t apply to beauty services. Getting the perfect nails is just a matter of how careful and dedicated you are, and most of the things you can do on your own, unless you want designer nail arts. Here, you will get some quick tips for getting those perfect and well shaped nails.

Keep your nails clean: What they do in manicure may seem to be complicated, but actually, it’s as easy as it can get. You don’t need expensive cleaners or milk to clean your hand nails. Take a piece of lemon and rub it on your nails. Within a few minutes, you nails will start glowing. If needed, you can use your face scrub with lemon to get cleaner nails.

Coating your nails: The only thing that you need to invest is nail polish and nail paints, and that’s where you need to stick to big brands. Low quality nail paints can give that yellow tarnish to your nails, and many times, you may find that you are ending up spending more as the cheap paints don’t last for long. Look for bigger brands, and while applying, always look for thin layers rather than thick coats. Thick coats chip off easily, while thin coats give you the actual shade of the colour and stay for much longer.

Start buffing your nails: You can buy a nail buffer, which is cheap, and most buffers have the numbers that will help you polish your nails at one step after another. If you have used the buffer correctly, it is likely that you will not need any polish or paint, and your nails will look shiner and pinker than ever. Also, buffing can keep your nails glowing for weeks, which is one reason for investing one hour in those four steps of buffing.

Keep your nails rounded and short: If you want your nails to last longer, then you must avoid extreme long nails. Experts suggest that you keep the corners of your nails rounded because square nails don’t last longer and tend to break easily when scratched on surface. Shaping your nails is all about using the nail filer right, and you just need to practise for a while.

Keep the coating on: When you are buying top coats for your nails, always buy the right and branded one and ensure that you reapply the same every three days. For your nail paints to last longer, apply a thin coat once in every week. This will offer the necessary protection for your nails and keep the colours glowing.

Keep your finger nails safe: Avoid using your nails for nasty household tasks just as opening stickers, lids or anything like that. Don’t hurt your nails in any way by making them prone to scratches and breakages. Keeping your nails safe is just a matter of caution and care, and this should come to you naturally with little attention.
