Maybelline Master Strobing Liquid

After seeing Jeffree Star test this out I was so excited for it to come into my local Superdrug. When it did, the one in store didn't swatch very well so I left it. I did eventually give in and pick it up because I mean it's me we're talking about…and here I am reviewing it as part of my mini haul (which you can find here). I'd never tried an intense strobing liquid to highlight with before so I was a bit apprehensive, but I'm always open to trying new things!

I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited in my life than when this arrived on my doorstep this morning – literally felt like a child on Christmas. I proper fell in love with this like the day before it was gonna come out and after frantic refreshing and stressed sweating on a packed train waiting for my order confirmation for 40 minutes, I got it straight away. I’d never jumped on a release so fast and so far I’m glad I did! Keep reading to see my first look with the palette, my first impressions and of course (the thing everyone wants to see)… swatches!

Mini Haul: Maybelline, Sleek and Max Factor

I was feeling a bit sorry for myself a few weeks ago and my first thought in that situation is always to comfort buy a load of makeup (of course). The 3 for 2 was on at Superdrug and you know how much of a sucker I am for a good old 3 for 2. And then I really wanted to try one of the Sleek metallic lipsticks but they’d stopped doing them in Superdrug so I had to pop down to Boots and get one of those of course. I’m gonna be reviewing these products over the next couple weeks, so if you’re interested in seeing swatches etc then make sure you’re following!  Continue reading

I’d never really tried any of L’Oréal‘s lipsticks, as I tend to stick to their mascaras (like the Miss Baby Roll one which I reviewed here) as they’re my favourite brand for mascaras by far, but this lipstick just caught my eye. It was quite a weird purchase for me as I don’t really stray from my deep, dark matte reds, but when I saw the packaging it killed me a little ngl. The packaging looks really luxurious, but does the product match up? Keep reading to find out!  Continue reading

Liebster Award – Take 2!


So this is just a little bonus post because (as you can probably see from the title) I’ve been nominated for the Liebster Award again! I was nominated by the fabulous warts&all ;I’m so shocked and hugely thankful as I’ve only had this blog for a year and a bit, so to get nominated at all (let alone twice) is hard to wrap my head around. I’m really excited for this opportunity to let you guys get to know me a bit better and also to help you find new and amazing blogs that you might not otherwise find. (You can check out my first Liebster Award post here). Continue reading

Makeup Revolution Oil Control Setting Spray

Up until recently I’d been using setting sprays by the brand Essence (you can find my review of one of them here), but when I remembered that Makeup Revolution did setting sprays, I just had to give one a shot. The Pro Fix Oil Control Fixing Spray sounded perfect for taming my oily skin, but every time I went into Superdrug it was sold out, but I was finally able to get my hands on it; I’m really glad I did!  Continue reading

So it seems that it’s officially summer as Glossybox comes at us this month with the “hello summer” box. It’s full of handy essentials for the hot days that are hopefully on the way, although British weather is full of surprises so we’ll have to see (lmao). I was also really excited about this box due to the promise of a Spectrum fan brush, as it would match my Spectrum set (which I reviewed here) perfectly. So anyway enough rambling…let’s get straight into the review!

Sleek Distorted Dreams Highlighting Palette

I was really on the fence about buying this for a while as I wasn’t sure about cream highlighters as a concept, as I know a lot of people don’t really enjoy using cream products. But I was having a really bad week a couple weeks ago and I decided why not since it was on 3 for 2 at Superdrug, and I have to admit, it’s also really pretty. I was really hoping it was gonna live up to the amazingness of the Solstice Highlighting palette, which was one of the first things I ever reviewed on my blog (you can find that here if you’re interested).  Continue reading
