Review - maybelline master precise liquid eyeliner




This eye-liner has been my favourite of main for more than a year and has only just started to run out/dry out now! It has lasted me very well and i will definitely be repurchasing a new one very soon, as i don't if any liquid eye-liner could be as good as this one!

From the bottom picture you will be able to see that you can get a very precise and thin line so you can see you they called it master precise! like i said before main is running out so it doesn't give a precise line as a new one does and is also not as black as it a new one will be!This eye-liner wears pretty well and will last throughout the day without wearing off but will start to smudge of if you rub at it! At £5.99 this is a very reasonably priced eye-liner and has zero bad points in my opinion so if your looking for a new liquid eye-liner i would highly recommend this.

Would I repurchase/recommend? - | YES | NO | MAYBE |

Ipanema flipflops




For some of you summer may be coming to an end and for others yours may be just starting! But here are some summer shoes you can't miss out on whether yours is over or just beginning! And that is Ipanema flipflops!

 I recently got sent these flipflops and have been wearing them ever since! They are the comfiest flipflops and am not just saying it for the sake of it it's true! Now I haven't tried many medium or high end flipflops just cheap ones for a £2 or £3 which I get for on holiday and throw away after as the normally break so I don't have much to compare them to but compared to them they are 100 x better! Ipanema flipflops are slightly moulded to help support your feet, and are very sturdy so I am sure they will wear well and last a long time. The flipflops i have are the tropical flipflops in the colour purple which retail at £14, which I think is very reasonable and well worth the money! They also have many different designs and colours so I am sure you will find a pair you like!

Review - Rimmel London Kate moss matte lipstick - 111 Kiss of Life

Hi everyone, so today I thought I would review the Rimmel London Kate moss matte lipstick in 111 kiss of life.This lipstick has to be hands down one of my favourites,If you watch my YouTube videos then you will have already heard me ramble on about how much I love this lipstick before, so I thought it was about time I wrote a full review of this product so everyone knows how good it is!




Rimmel London Kate moss matte lipstick (111 kiss of life) retails at £5.49 (currently on offer £3.99)

What i think:

The good points to this lipstick are that it apply's easily, is highly pigmented but at the same time go for a subtle or intense look depending on how you apply it. (I normally go for the intense look!) Is the perfect red colour (for me) and is matte and matte lipsticks are often hard to find at a reasonable price.It also doesn't dry out your lips which is what I expected because its a matte lipstick which is good.

The lasting time and wear of this lipstick is a good and bad point at the same time because even though it lasts well it could always last longer, and I would expect it to as it is a lasting finish lipstick! it last for about 3-4 hours without any signs of wear then slowly starts to fade from there on if you don't reapply it too keep up the intense look, but if you don't reapply it its still visible just not as intense I find myself reapplying it about 2 times throughout the day.

The main bad point to this lipstick is that I find the colour leaks of my lips a bit throughout the day onto my skin around the lips and I don't really know how to explain this and and I think if you got a lighter shade and not such a dark shade then this may not happen, its not the worse thing and isn't that noticeable so doesn't really bother me.

Good points:

  • It's matte
  • highly pigmented
  • lovely colour 
  • Easy to apply
  • good price
  • lasts well the lips - (okay wear)

Bad points:

  • colour leaks
  • wears off

Overall:

I think this lipstick is amazing and I would recommend it to any one wanting a matte lipstick!

Would I repurchase/recommend? - | YES | NO | MAYBE |

Thanks for reading,

Review - seventeen doll'd up mascara





The first thing i have to say about this mascara is that it is absolutely amazing. If your looking for a reasonable priced mascara that gives your lashes lots of length then this is the mascara for you!

The formula of this mascara is quite thin and watery, its not as watery as some I've tied but is compared to most mascaras,this has its advantages and disadvantages. The advantages are that a thinner consistency means it sticks to the lashes better (in my opinion) and the disadvantages are that it sometimes splatters when you are applying it, leaving you with black speckles over your cheeks, its not as bad as am making it out to be, if your careful when applying it this should not be a problem.

The mascara wand is plastic with a curved head, it has tiny little bristles designed to get to every single one of your lashes and it does! Its also really easy to get to the very root of your lashes at your water line which makes your lashes look fuller.This mascara is definitely a lengthening mascara as it doesn't really give you any volume but i can easily look pass this as it lengths my lashes amazingly. This mascara really helps me too look more awake and give my lashes a real doll eyed effect, maybe why they called it doll'd up or maybe there saying get doll'd up for a night out! who knows.

Packaging wise its not that bad and to be honest i actually quite like it!It's simple design and minimal writing helps it to look quite expensive and sleek, as a cheap mascara they did pretty well on the packaging as most cheap mascaras actually look cheap and childish unlike this one.This mascara is reasonably priced at £6.29 and in my opinion is a great bargain. I would happily pay more for this mascara as it does a great job at lengthening my lashes and would definitely recommend it for anyone looking for a great lengthening mascara.

Would I repurchase? - | YES | NO | MAYBE |

Review - seventeen powder





Seventeen pressed powder - £3.99

I love trying out different powders, like most people I want my make-up to last all day and stop my skin from looking shiny through out the day!So when there was an offer on at boots I thought I would try out this seventeen powder.

Looks wise I would give this powder a 9 out of 10 because it has a large clear mirror, it isn't over crowded with writing it is black which makes it look sleek and more expensive, and its also not too big either which is good especially if you're going to carry in in your bag all day.

product wise I would say that the powder overall is good, it applies evenly and doesn't go patchy or muddy/orange which is always a bonus! It lasts quite well I would say after 5 hours it still looks like when you applied it but after that it slowly starts to come off so you do need to touch up but it doesn't look awful and patchy when it starts to ware off so its not essential to touch up just if you want to keep your skin matte and keep the extra coverage.

It doesn't really give you that much coverage, I would say its a low to medium coverage if you build it up but really a low coverage powder.It comes in two colours but colour wise i would say that it will be okay for most skin tones but most suited to fair skin tones.

Would I repurchase/ recommend? - | YES | NO | MAYBE

The only reason I have said maybe instead of yes is because I don't think it has enough coverage for my linking but apart from that its a great powder, especially for the money.

Review - Miss Luxe clothing

Hi everyone, today's post is going to be about miss luxe. Miss Luxe is a women's fashion and beauty e-tailer. miss luxe say there clothes are " unique, vibrant and expressive", they sell  branded, unbranded and own label fashion at an affordable price.



Miss Luxe kindly sent be the black heart jumper to review and I have to say am completely and utterly in love with it! On the website I don't think it looks half as good as it does in real life and it doesn't look as thick and comfy as it actually is.From the moment I got this jumper I fell in love with it and cant bring myself to where anything else, its just so comfy and keep me so warm in this awful British weather.

I love the heart design on this jumper and think its perfect for valentines day which is coming up soon! I've been wearing this jumper with shirts underneath so the collars poking out and legging for a comfy laid back look.( there be an outfit post soon)

This jumper is great value for money at £14.99 so very affordable and well worth buying as i assure you, you wont want to take it off! I would suggest going on Miss Luxe website because they have some amazing pieces! I love there knitwear and jewellery best but they also have some amazing going out dresses too!

Review - seventeen brows that! bow kit






Seventeen brow's that! brow kit - £6.00

This little kit from seventeen is meant to have everything you need to have fabulous brows.The kit contains a wax, powder, highlighter, pencil, brush and a hints and tips card to help you achieve your perfect brows.

This brow kit is very similar to the benefits brows a go go kit which costs £27.50 and  benefits brow zings kit which costs £23.50 and the sleek brows kit which costs £8.49. I would say its more like the benefit brows a go go kit than the sleek brow kit and the other benefit kit because the benefit brows a go go kit has a pencil and highlighter like the seventeen one.I have never tried the sleek or benefit brows kit but i have tried the benefit brow zings wax and eye bright in the smokin eyes set so can compare it a little to that.

The wax in the benefit go go brow kit is darker than the seventeen wax and is probably a bit easier to apply only because i feel you can get more wax on your brush at once with the benefit one meaning you don't have to keep dipping it back in the wax taking up time. The benefit brows a go go kit only comes in one colour like the seventeen one but the sleek and other benefit kit comes in more colours.

The seventeen brow kit colour wise if probably for brown eyebrows, it could be light to medium and maybe dark if you add more product to darken it up but i wouldn't recommend it for really fair or really dark eyebrows.The wax is smooth and easy to apply and so is the powder, the highlight is a lovely colour and again easy to apply as its a soft eye shadow.The pencil i have only used once and it gives you very neat but a more drawn on look as you can be very precise but it its still very handy to have.

Overall i think the seventeen brow kit is amazing and is the cheapest out of the other brow kits i mentioned and is a fraction of the price of the most similar benefit kit so it is well worth its small price tag of £6.00.

Would I repurchase/ recommend? - | YES | NO | MAYBE
