I’d saved a lot of money up for Leeds fest this year but I decided I wasn’t going, so I ended up having a little bit of a clothes shopping spree and also treating myself to some makeup obvs. (Head to my insta to see what I got @makemeupinsidee). It was 3 for 2 at Superdrug and who am I to pass up on that so I got this MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter in Pearlescent Sheen bc I just fell in love with it and it looked like the colour of highlight I’d been looking for for ages.

£5.99 Holy Grail Foundation

The dreaded day came last week when my Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation ran out (the horror – you can check out my review of it here). My student budget didn’t quite stretch to re-buying it, and as would only happen to me in my disaster-prone life I had to get the train home that morning with no foundation to wear to go out for a meal that night. In the hour or so after uni that I had to spare before my train I dashed into Superdrug, swatched a foundation, said “That’s probably fine”, and ended up with the Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation (normal to oily) in the shade 105 Natural Ivory.

After I’d rushed out the shop I dropped a quick message to the makeup society group chat asking them if I’d mugged myself off but it turns out it’s a foundation a few of them regularly use – so I’d really hit the jackpot!  Continue reading

I’ve been trying to cut down on buying makeup recently; as you can see from this post, that just hasn’t been working out that well! But to give me some credit, these cream eyeshadows from Superdrug were on sale for just 49p each! Me being me and seeing a bargain, I bought all three shades to try out. I’d never really delved into the cream eyeshadow world before (or even the individual eyeshadow world), so let’s get into my review of the B. Stunning Vibrant Eyeshadows! Continue reading

I’d just about come to terms with the fact that I’ll probably never buy any of the Kylie Lip Kits when I saw this gem in Primark for just £3! If you’ve read any of my posts you’ll know that I’m both a sucker for Primark makeup and a bargain, so I literally threw this into my basket ngl. They had this colour (Cookie Dough), and another lip kit that was metallic but I didn’t really fancy that one.  Continue reading

Primark Insta Girl Intense Liquid Lipsticks and Liners

I saw Primark advertise these PS Insta Girl Intense Liquid Lipsticks on Twitter and I knew I had to give them a try, as I’ve been really keen to try a satin finish lipstick for a while now. They were £2 each and they had lip liners to match which I went back and bought afterwards (I’ll explain why), so I just chucked them into a basket with my clothes and decided to give them a try!  Continue reading

Brand Spotlight – Technic Cosmetics Round 2

 

17328229_820755708072385_783176247_n

This week I’m super excited to be able to share some of the new range by the underdog drugstore brand: Technic Cosmetics! I was really happy that I got another chance to work with them and to see what they’ve come up with since my first post, which you can check out here.

This time around, I was sent their Colour Correcting Setting Powder, their Brow Pen Eyebrow Definer in Medium Brown, their Shimmer Shadows Eyeshadow Primer, their Mega Lash Mega Volumising Mascara, and their Get Gorgeous Highlighting Powder in 24ct Gold. I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of product types and decided to try them pretty much daily over the course of a week and the half. I’m gonna be giving you my first impressions, general thoughts and both the pros and the cons to keep it real – so let’s get into it! (I also left the rrp when I could find the products, but they’re all fairly new and hard to find). Continue reading

My best friend Emily was up this week and we found ourselves going shopping (I mean how can you not). We popped into Primark and I saw this little gem in the makeup section that I just had to have! It’s the new PS…PRO Kiss Proof Liquid Matte Lipstick in 01…Nude in Private.  Despite my slight scepticism based on the last liquid lisptick I bought from them (find my review here), I was super optimistic about this one. It claims to be Ultra Long Lasting, to have No Transfer Film, and to contain Vitamin E. Some pretty bold claims for £3 (I think it cost that anyway), so let’s get into it!  Continue reading

Sunset Eye Tutorial

finished

As I’m writing this I’m realising that my blog’s been a bit tutorial heavy atm, so let me know what you think! Today I’m gonna be showing you a tutorial for a look that I think is super cool and doable (beauty gurus eat your heart out)! All jokes aside, I think this look is really cute and it’s not even that hard to replicate, so let’s get into it!
