#BEAUTY | First impressions - LIMECRIME liquid listicks

ola my lovely readers ^_^
welcome back again, this time to another beauty post. this is pretty much a first impressions posts too as I have never used any of the LimeCrime products before! exciting I know.
Thanks to a lovely blogger friend of mine Amina who blogs over at www.aliandher.com I got such a bargain on these. ASOS was had 30% off some of their beauty products and these were included in that, Amina brought it to my attention via twitter sooo thank you very much for that :) instead of paying £15 each they was £11 each!

I had such a hard time choosing what colours to go for, I probably researched swatches for a good 40 minutes before I went with SALEM and BUFFY.
Buffy is the nude colour, and tbh I couldn't not pick a nude colour, I feel it is essential to have a nude shade from every brand possible haha

Salem is a deep brown colour, I picked salem because I genuinely haven't got this colour in my lipstick collection and I felt it was missing and I think its a very striking colour. I'm yet to decide whether I can pull it off or not.

They are a matte liquid lipstick and I do love a matte, I haven't worn the colours for the whole day yet so I cant say whether they last a good few hours or not. But I did wear buffy for a bit and it dried quite quickly into the matte formation and didn't seem to be drying at all.

They go on very wet and smoothly and dry fast. I would advise a base underneath especially for the dark colour. I just lined my lips with a brown pencil and then filled it in, just so the natural redness of my lips didn't seep through in the middle as I find with darker colours the bit in the middle of the lips wears away a lot quicker!

I shall link them below if anybody wants to have a browse

have you tried any of Limecrime's products

#BEAUTY | Nouveau Lashes lash and lid foam cleanser - BEFORE AND AFTER

Merhaba everyone <3

If there is any advise I have been given from the women in my life, its always to look after the skin under your eyes and the d├ęcolletage. I suppose careful care can prevent ageing and keep the skin baby smooth. Nouveau lashes has launched a new product called the Lash and Lid foaming cleanser. As an avid user of their makeup remover, I was over the moon when they brought this to the market :) not only does it remove mascara and eye makeup but it can also be used to remove strip lashes! How cool is that?! It makes the whole idea of wearing falsies much more appealing.

Its a very straight forward product to use, all you need to do is pump it on to the back of your hand; or if you are a rebel then straight on to your face ^_^ when you pump the cleanser it will come out foam form. Then simply massage the product on to your eye lids and lashes, I also used it for my  face makeup. I used the little brush at first but I did find it a little bit easier to use my fingers as it was easier to control and massage.

I found it to be very soft on my skin and actually hydrating :) I'm going to add a before and after as it got off my mascara and eyeshadow which is dark in colour so well and that's the only product I used. I didn't have to scrub my eyes rotten to get it off!  I'm glad I don't have to tug at my eyes, especially the delicate under eye area.

I actually prefer it to the other makeup remover from their range, even though its really good - I'm not saying I don't like it at all, I just prefer the consistency of this one :) and I think that its so good that a brand caters for their target base and always brings out new products that top the ones that come before.

My love affair with Mad Men

I haven't been doing much lately, apart from Netflix-and-chillin with Mad Men. It has recently been added to Netflix so I took the opportunity to start watching it. I know it came out in 2007-2008, and when it came out I was probably too busy with my school work so by the time I was going to start watching it it was already on its 4th season, and lets be honest what kind of monster starts watching a series from the 4th season?!
The perfect excuse to binge watch had arisen and I took full advantage. Since the day I started approx. 2 weeks ago, I haven’t been the same since. See, I made this pact with my mum (as she started watching from the second episode and took a fancy to the series also) that I wouldn’t watch it without her. Our work patterns kind of conflict some days so when I have my day off it’s so hard for me to resist watching the next episode. I think I have withdrawal symptoms. I just want to know what is going on in these people’s lives, I think I know more about them than my real-life friends. The pain is causes me to think if Don is once again doing the dirty on Megan.. the wife that is just so perfect for him.
This show has spurned emotions in me. I get sad when Sally gets treated bad by ummm…literally everyone!! Give the poor girl a break, I mean if she isn’t getting an earful from Betty Draper (bring back season 3 Betty!! What the f happened to her) it’s her grandmother in law or her dad. I just get the urge to call her up and say “its gonna be okay Sally” and give her a hug that she needs.
Im on season 6 now and to be honest, I don’t know how much more I can take. Season 3-4 to the beginning of season 5 was the best for me and now its taking a huge downhill. I loved Betty and Don together because she was the beautiful girl next door and THOSE outfits, THAT hair…god somebody give me that wardrobe. The envy I have for her style is immense, I want to look like her. But in reality, I didn’t love them to together as they didn’t work in real life, only on paper. I couldn’t take all of Don’s cheating, I mean I felt like he was doing it to me. But now he has really done it, cheating on Betty is one thing; she cheated on him even though 2 wrongs don’t make a right. Cheating on innocent, fun loving Megan is just about as much as my weak heart can take. I finally thought Don had met his soulmate and Megan had changed the old Don, how could he be so wonderful through the whole of Season 5 and then in Season 6 Linda Cardellini waltz’ in and corrupts him again. And it’s hard for me because I loved Linda Cardellini in freaks and geeks, why do this to ya girllll!?
Aside from all the goings on with Don, the whole office dynamic is interesting. My time is greatly invested in the lives of Roger, Peggy, Pete and Joanie. What an interesting bunch. What an interesting yet slightly revolting time was the 60’s. I couldn’t deal with the dirty old men trying to cop a feel every 5 minutes but it’s fascinating to watch to see how far we have come as a society. I’m a lover of the 50’s and 60’s from the music, style, art and interior so I’m just away in a dreamland most of the show.
 Oh, and of course it centres around advertising. A subject I am intrigued by and as it is in the 60’s I like seeing how certain aspects limit them and the obstacles they had to overcome. Peggy Olson is the ultimate girl boss in the show and is something of an inspiration.
I haven’t really stopped shouting and gasping at the TV since I started the show and I’m glad I waited until now to finally watch the show because I understand it a whole lot more than I would of it I watched it way back when.
I had to write a piece on the show because I’m in love with it. It’s that simple.
P.s. what am I going to do when the show is over?!?!?!?!?!!
