Maybelline popstick in pink sugar review!

Hey Everyone,
                     I got the maybelline popstick in pink sugar yesterday and love it. It is very sheer but some glitter comes off it. I do like this for summer and like how the packaging is so neon. The packaging is square and has a neon colour going through it. They are like lip balm and they don't last long like after you have ate or drank it's gone. I like the colour of pink sugar it's a very pale pink with lots of silver glitter in it. It smells like fruit to me and I like that about it. I would still buy it because of the way the lipstick looks.

Pictures are not very good sorry not sure what happened :S


  • Cool packaging.
  • Also it actually looks cool the product inside.
  • Nice for a lazy day.
  • Smells fruity mmmm...

  • Doesn't have any colour to it.
  • It breaks easily.
  • Not loads of the glitter comes of either.

Lots of Love,

Real Techniques Brush Starter Kit First Thoughts!

Hey everyone,
                     I bought these yesterday and I haven't used them but this is my first thoughts. Okay, these are very popular and I just had to buy them. They are a little bit pricey! The starter kits are great I got the eye one you also get a orange one I got the purple one. They look really good quality and can't wait to actually use them. It also comes with a travel thing that you can put your brushes on. They feel really soft and they don't fall out easily. Overall my first thoughts are 10/10 excpect to see this in my faves video.

New Makeup Storage!

Hey everyone,
                     This isn't a makeup collection I might have a makeup collection on my youtube though. I was cleaning my room and I loved my new storage so I thought I would just post a picture.

If you can't see I have made labels that say starting from the top 'Lips', 'Face', 'Nail', 'Hair', 'Eye', 'Body' and then 'MORE body stuff'. Okay so the top small drawers are from the pound store and the bigger black ones are from wilko. If you can see the little pink containers they have jewellery and the one beside has skincare.

Lots of Love,

Veet in Shower Hair Removal Cream Review!

Hey everyone,
                    I know I have already done a hair removal review on the boots one but I picked up a veet one today. I used it as soon as I got in and it really does work! I love hair removal creams because it's easier and quicker than waxing or shaving and I'm young so I can't wax or shave. Anyways, here's my review-

This comes with a cool mini sponge perfect for travelling!
What Veet Say- Get touchably smooth skin while you shower with Veet In Shower Hair Removal Cream for Normal Skin, enriched with Moisturiser Complex and Lotus Milk! It removes hair effectively without cutting it, so hair grows back feeling softer, and leaves skin moisturised
Thanks to a unique combination of water resisting ingredients the cream has the power to stay on the skin, letting you step into the shower while it works its skin smoothing magic.Plus in each pack you’ll get a new softer exfoliating sponge that will leave your skin feeling silky smooth.
The Coloured side is what you apply the cream with don't rub it in and the white bit is for getting the cream off. You can use this at any part of your body well not any part. It only takes 5 minutes, 2 minutes out the shower with it on, then 3 minutes in the shower and then remove it. Love this product this is better than the other one.

Lots of Love,

Less is More! FOTD

Hey everyone,
                     So I needed to rush out the door so I didn't have time to do lots of makeup. So I just did this quickly I used-
Natural Collection sheer lipstick Sorbet
Bourjois eyeshadow palette
L'oreal Telescopic Mascara in brown

All of the products are pretty natural which is nice. I found out that you don't really need all that makeup. I didn't even use concealer or foundation because I was giving my skin a break.

Lots of Love,

My Skin Wake Up Fresh Facial Wipes+New makeup remover!

Hey everyone,
                     I've stopped the Beauty Tips and Tricks posts because I'm getting fed up of doing them. Anyway, I bought these My Skin Wake Up Fresh Facial Wipes and a new makeup remover.

My Skin Wake Up Facial Wipes Review-

The thing that got me to buying this is the packaging it's so pretty it's a light purple colour with pink,orange,white and blue flowers. This is a Naturally Gentle Skincare product! This has 25 wipes in it and I have used about 2 and am impressed. This is really good for younger skin since it's so natural and has raspberry and lime tree blossom. This is supposed to be a cleanser but can be used for removing makeup and moisturise. It also keeps skin clear and helps prevent blemishes. I want to use this morning and night for my daily regime. It does refresh your skin so perfect for school days. It also has Climicifuga which helps control excess oil and shine. Overall I love the wipes sooo much!

My new makeup remover:
Has anyone tried this out it looks good!

Lots of Love,

Father's Day Fragrances&My Super Scent Sunday!

Hey everyone,
                    I have a long post today! I'm going to do a selection of fragrances that I thought my dad and others would like. After that my usual women's Super Scent Sunday. For Father's day I think aftershave is a nice thoughtful gift so here's my selection-

Thierry Mugler A*Men limited edition fragrance-

The notes are ice mint and juniper, spicy white pepper and cardamom. Finally, a woody explosion of sequoia wood and patchouli. I like this scent and I love the women's version Angel it's amazing! It has the same sort of scent as Angel but it's a bit more manly.

JLS Kiss-

My dad would laugh if I had bought him this! But anyway the notes are Energising notes of Peach Skin, Loganberry and cheeky Cassis allure the senses straight into the deep heart of white Jasmine, Tuberose absolute, Neroli Flower and sensual Black Orchid which add passion which is supported by a hypnotic base of hot Amber crystals, white Musk, Patchouli and rich Oakmoss to add longevity. WOW! The scent smells good maybe for younger dads. I do like it though it says that Aston loved the cheeky cassis note. Oritsé added the sensual black orchid as it is his favourite flower. Marvin adores Tuberose. JB wanted the hypnotic scent of amber crystals lingering on the skin.

Polo Blue
Polo Ralph Lauren Blue Sport-

This is the scent I'm most likely to get my dad. The notes are  Frosted Mint, Mandarin, Crunchy Apple, Crushed Leaves, Cedar Leaf, Water Fern, Ginger, Sage, Cascalone Amber Wood, White Musk, Oakmoss, Sandal Wood, Patchouli. I like this scent as well very manly and sporty.

Super Scent Sunday


Thierry Mugler Alien-

I am a fan of Angel but Alien is very different but yet I love it. It smells really nice and very womanly. I like the bottle for this it's so cool and creative like Angel. I heard they have a taste range or something out with the Alien perfumes. The notes rich floral woody amber containing jasmine sambac, cashmeran wood and white amber.

Beauty tips and tricks: Love your skin drink water!

Hey everyone,
                     I know it's cheesy but drinking water does help your skin for these reasons-

  • It helps ance go away.
  • It also helps your body.
  • It helps with the colour
  • It also helps with the texture.
  • Gives your skin a healthy glow.

It's not a miracle worker so don't expect over night changes. It does help though with a lot of things. Water is so natural and much better than any skincare product. It also helps with when your finished lunch/dinner and your still hungry have a couple glasses of water. You are supposed to take 8 glasses a day but I usually have bottles so that reduces my amount.

Maybelline Illegal Length Mascara review!

Hey everyone,
                      So this is a Maybelline's new mascara and I got it around a week ago so I think it's fairly new. I usually love <3 Maybelline mascara but this one is not my fave. I don't want to hate maybelline but I want to do an honest review.

Okay, the man in superdrug was begging me to buy this and I can't just say no. I got it and I was excited to try it out. This is supposed to have some sort of fiber extensions which sounds cool. It's supposed to extend your lashes up to 4m which it does lengthen but I still don't like it. The packaging looks cheap and is very light which I don't like. This does sort of clump but not really badly. It wasn't expensive but I still feel I could have saved my pennies for something else I would use.

Pros and No's--


  • It really does lengthen your lashes. 
  • It's cheap and affordable.
  • Lasts for a long time.

  • Leaves Clumps
  • Makes your lashes look weird
  • Doesn't make the lashes look fuller
  • Cheap, Crappy packaging

Overall I would give it 2/10! :( :(

Top 5 Soap&Glory Products!

Hey everyone,
                     For X-mas I got a big case of Soap&Glory products so that's were this all came from. I love Soap&Glory all the products have cute names and work really well. I am yet to try out more but this is my top 5 at the moment...

Calm one, Calm all-
Is sooo nice it smells great! It has almost the same scent as a Chanel perfume. This is a Bubble bath and it's sooo relaxing.

Clean on me-
Is a good fresh scented shower gel. It comes in a pump which is handy. I like to use this daily.

Hand Food-
God! This is AMAZING it is great on sore, cracked hands. I love to carry this around with me. My whole family owns a tube of this.

Mist you Madly-
I love to spray this to refresh me. It has a nice strong scent which lasts for hours. I like to spray this on my bedsheets and clothes my weird habit :S

The Righteous Butter-
This has a nice scent and is very moisturising. I don't find this greasy at all which is good. I love the creamy thickness of this.

Lots of Love,

Glamour Benefit That Gal Freebie Review!

Hey everyone,
                     I love Glamour magazine and loved it even more this week as they were giving out Benefit freebies. The choices were Bad Gal mascara, The POREfessional and That Gal primer. I love all of the products but I haven't tried out That Gal so I got it. This is supposed to brighten the face but I'm not so sure about that. The full size has much cooler bottle as it looks like a glue stick. The product itself is a pinky colour and has a creamy texture which is really nice. I think it smells a bit like strawberry's it definitely has some sort of fruity scent. I apply this after I've applied my face creams and it helps even out the skintone. It gives my face a nice glow and my foundation goes on smoothly. This is different on different skin types as on my it makes my foundation last longer. I can see this sample lasting a long time as you only need a little bit. I will be purchasing the full size once I run out.

Lots of Love,

Beauty tips and tricks: Lemon Juice for your hair!

Hey everyone,
                    I've been sick lately my sister gave me a tummy bug. I've got a sore tummy
:( But anyway I'm doing a post on lemon juice for your hair. This is a passed down tip from my Gran.

Okay you probably want to know how this helps your hair. It brings out the natural highlights.
The steps-

1. Mix 1/4 of a cup of warm water with 1 cup of lemon juice. Combine this in a spray bottle and dampen your hair with it.

2. Wear sunscreen as you will be sitting out in the sun and you need to protect your skin.

3. You will need to sit outside in direct sunlight for at least 60-90 minutes to begin seeing any colour change.

4. Reapply the lemon juice after 90 minutes in the sun and continue to sit in the sun.
5. When your done wash your hair and apply a good amount of conditioner.
6. Expect the following colour change in 3-4 weeks.

Useful information when doing this is----

  • Wear tons of sunscreen! It won't completely protect you, but it's better than nothing.
  • If you apply the juice to only your natural highlights, you will get streaks. If you deeply saturate your whole head, it will lighten the full colour.
  • Be patient! You will need to do this many times to get a big difference.
  • Continue this process on multiple days if you don't have much time the first sitting.

  • Don't do this too often, since the sun can seriously damage your skin over time. Watch out for sunburn, it's easier to prevent a sunburn than treat it.
  • This method may not be that effective if you have dark brown or black hair. Do not overuse; if you use more than one lemon a day, it may add a brassy, odd tint to your hair.
Okay, this is good for if you don't want to dye your hair or are to young to die it. I think this is really cool and have tried this out and it does work well. Also Lemon Juice works on the skin for acne scaring.

Lots of Love,
