Steppin' into Spring with Pastels

Spring is just around the corner. Here in Scotland, I've have been noticing a lot more sunshine and warm weather. Wildflowers are popping up left, right and centre! I've started moving away from my darker burgundies and chocolates and making the effort to reach for brighter, lighter tones. Whenever the season changes I feel the urge to buy new nail polish; like my transformation from winter to spring, starts with my nails.

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in Devotion

Recently I've been trying to pack up all my travel makeup for going a way next week, and it is proving harder than I remember. My makeup bag weights a tonne and I seem to be taking everything but the kitchen sink. While I have been trying to whittle down what I'm taking, I've been noticing products that I haven''t used a long time. The Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolors are one of those products. Since chucking it in my travel bag, I have not been able to stop reaching for it.

Maybelline ColourSensational Lipstick in Honey Beige

Nude lipsticks. What can I say? Sometimes trying to find the right nude for your complexion can seem like a daunting task. I know that I, personally, am always on that hunt for the perfect nude lipstick. One that's not to deep or pastel, and neither too brown or pink toned; just that perfect middle ground that seems impossible to find. This brings me to my newest nude lipstick, the Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick in Honey Beige.

Product Empties | Would I Repurchase? Part 2

I received such a good response to my previous empties post that I've decided to delve back into my empties bag and share some more! I'm still struggling to remember to pop my products in the bag. My mum sees an empty-ish bottle in the bathroom and just chucks it straight in the bin. Boo!

Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Lipstick in Cool Girl

Matte liquid lipsticks are still having their moment! Everybody still loves a good matte lip. While I like to experiment with different brand formulas, I still have a few brands that I think have some of the better matte liquid lip formulas.

First Ever Bobbi Brown Haul!

Recently a Bobbi Brown counter opened up not too long ago in my local Debenhams beauty hall! I have always wanted to try Bobbi Brown products, but I always get distracted by new launches from brands that I've tried already. There are still quite a lot of makeup brands that I have very little experience with, and Bobbi Brown is one of them. 

So I decided to change all that and pick up some items that I had been keeping my eye on, or just really caught my eye. I picked up a Shimmer Brick Compact, an Art Stick Liquid Lip, a Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, and the Skin Foundation Stick. I'm so excited to get using all of these!

June Monthly Beauty Favourites

Another month done and dusted! I swear it feels like it was just Christmas. This month was very important to me. June was the month that four quick years finally paid off; the month that will forever be remembered as when I graduated University. I'm a bit sad I'm not going straight into my Master's Degree, but I'm going to take some time off, make some money to help pay for it, and get some experience. But nobody wants to hear about my life, makeup is much, much more exciting! During my little hiatus, I took the opportunity to test lots of new makeup. June's beauty favourites are some of the stand out products from that time period.

MAC Liptensity Lipstick in Driftwood

I'm back after a long month long hiatus! To make the story short, I have been seriously struggling with finishing University and trying to decide what I'm now going to do with my life. The pressure got a little too much and so I've been living under a rock until now. Like, total social media blackout. I've also struggled with inspiration, and just generally feeling 'blue'. But I'm back and making the attempt to get back into the swing of things.
