Some New Additions

Hi Guys,

I've got a few new additions to my make up collection to share with you today.

In November my dad went to New York for the weekend and he was sent with the instructions to come home with the Tarte The Sculptor as I had seen loads of people using it and looked like an easy way to quick contouring.
He did one better and also came home with the Tarte Park Ave Princess palette which includes a bronzer (in Park Ave Princess), a blush (in posh) and a highlighter (in champagne gold). It's a gorgeous palette and I can't wait to start using it - rounds of applause for dad (and the lady in Sephora who helped him).

Back on home turf, as a massive fan of the Maybelline 24hr Colour Tattoos I picked up Creamy Beige from the Leather Effect collection. It's a perfect matte light taupe colour which I've been using as a base for my everyday eyeshadow.

I've recently got into lip liners as a base for other lip products or wearing them on their own. After seeing the Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in East End Snob being mentioned around YouTube and blogs, I thought it was only right to pick it up. It's a gorgeous creamy, soft beige pink colour and I think suits my skin colour nicely. 

What have you been buying recently?

Review: Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment

Hi Guys,
Today I've got a review of the Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado.

At 21, eye creams to reduce lines and wrinkles aren't on the top of my skincare routine but an eye cream to keep my eyes hydrated is.
My under eyes went through a slight dry patch before using this eye-cream where concealers, foundations and powders would crease as they were sticking to the dry patches but this eye-cream ahs turned everything around.

It's a thick consistency yet super creamy and doesn't feel caked on once applied. I apply it every night before going to sleep and my under eyes feel extremely hydrated when I wake up. It smells really nice and a little goes a long way so it's definitely worth the £20 price tag.

I've been using it for a few months now and I don't see myself switching eye creams until it's time to start tackling pesky wrinkles (I'm hoping still a while to go!).

What is your favourite eye cream?

I'm Back

Hello people!!

I last posted in September to say I was taking a break as I was really busy but only expected it to be for a few weeks. Somehow, that break turned into it being December!!

There's so many reasons for the break being so long but the main one is I'm now in my final year of university. I've always been good at time management but somehow this year, any spare moment I have is either doing uni work, working for my job or sleeping so blogging was pushed to the bottom of the list. 

Everything I've bought or done these past few months, I've always thought just blog it and you can get back in the game but then something else crops up instead.

I'm not going to lie, January is going to be crazy - I've got 3 massive uni deadlines so I can't promise January will be consistent but whilst December is slightly quieter I'm going to try and pre-write as much as I can.

I'm so happy you've all stuck with me through the long break and somehow my page views and followers have gone up whilst being away so thank you!

With that all in mind, I'm off to write blog posts!!
