#BEAUTY | Nouvaeu Lashes #LASHGANG

Im officially a #Lashgang member! WOO :) So Nouveau Lashes was lovely enough to send me some beautifully packaged products to try! As if the packaging isnt pretty enough the quality of the products are amazing. I decided to delay this post so that i could try the products out for a good few weeks and that i have! 

 

For the days that i dont wear mascara this little serum kinda saves my whole entire life haha it says to use twice a day, which i have been doing and tbh i wasnt sure if it would do anything for my lashes but i was suprised when i noticed that my lashes looked more curly and defined, im not gonna say they have doubled in thickness or grown in length but it does kinda give that impression in just a more effortless way. I actually tend to put this on before i wear my mascara as well, i let it dry and then pop on a light layer of mascara and it looks fab! It also adds great nourishment to my lashes.

PACKAGING...tick.....so elegant and pretty...STYLES ....tick.....i love style 2 so much! but i dont want to offend the other styles cos i do love them too :) the bands are very comfy and sit on the eye very well. They all include a little bottle of glue, of which i also have the big tube you can buy. It is an amazing glue! Lasts all day long, just what you need in an eyelash glue.



Im particularly obsessed with the eye makeup remover. I normally use micellar water when im not feeling lazy, but when i am lazy i end up using baby wipes *eep* the worst thing ever to use, cue stinging panda eyes. Anyway i have been using this everytime now to wipe off all my makeup. It is so cooling and gentle on my eyes i cant imagine using any other product, it removes stubborn mascara and liner. Also i think the bottle is amazing, i have never seen a makeup remover bottle like this before with the push down top!

#OOTD | Ripped Jeans X Creepers



An #OOTD with a very different photography style than i have ever done before! Different angles and editing...let me know what you think?! I also decided to only pick a few photos rather than making it such a photo heavy post. I know its been a long time since i have posted an outift but adulting has never been easy, even more so that i have a full time job now *screams* where will i ever find the time?!!?! That leads me on to asking, would you be interested in blog posts about blogging and working full time?




This outift by the way is something i quickly threw together with the idea of autumn/summer/typical british weather in mind. Its sunny, oh no its raining...freezing....boiling! PHEW...
you cant really go wrong with jeans, especially ripped jeans.. i bought these from boohoo recently because i didnt own any! I love a pair of black jeans and boohoo jeans tend to be comfy.
The top i picked up in store at H&M, it was a good price at something like £7.99, but i was there considering what colour to pick for a long time haha they had a lovely dusty green colour which i now wish i bought as it will go perfect with my creepers! 

Khaki Creepers! Cant go wrong with them. Perfect shoes for long walks in the dewy, autumny days but also perfect for dressing up an outfit. I was a bit late on the craze of creepers, but hey thats me! 

Shop the look :
Creepers - LAMODA
Jeans (similar) - BOOHOO
Top - H&M

#BEAUTY | A magical dry brush makeup remover


 



Shadow Switch is a new handy makeup remover for the tools you use on a daily basis! Whether its just a brush for a dab of blush or a few different brushes for the crease, lid and brow bone. We all use brushes and most of us dont clean them that often.....*guilty* i tend to dab my brush into various eyeshadow shades..sometimes mixing them and transferring a colour i dont want! This little pot called Shadow Switch is great for cleaning brushes dry, so you dont have to wet the brushes and wait for them to dry! I myself hate doing the monthly washing of my brushes and i have seen so many makeup memes about washing brushes haha! 
All you have to do is twist the brush in a clockwise motion a couple of times and the brush is a lot cleaner than it was before, now im not saying that its a thourough clean and there are no germs.. its just so that the colour of the makeup is now off of the brush :) these are avaliable to buy at Amazon for now here
 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Shadow-Switch-Brush-Cleaner-Removes/dp/B01CPIUWK2/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1473262680&sr=8-1&keywords=shadow+switch
before the official site is launched. It is sold by the brand Beauty Essentials, be sure to check out them out on their socials!

p.s. this is also washable and re-usable! 

what do you think of the concept?

#MAKEUP | Highlighter dupes + One branded makeup haul

 Say hello to Technic, a sassy, sweet, on trend, on budget makeup brand!
I would probably say the brand is similar to the likes of MUA or Makeup Revolution from the high street stores but these products i have had the pleasure of reviewing are great in quality! 
Every product differs, so maybe a shadow palette from MUA may not be as pigmented but their lipstick may have a longer lasting power, its always about finding the right medium with different brands and then sticking to it. I always like to remember that jsut because a price is really high or really low it doesnt mean that the quality is going to be amazing or trashy. 

But im actually really impressed with some of the items and their quality and the one that stands out to me is the highlighters! one of my fave ever makeup products! anyway let me talk through some of the items below and if you would like to purchase any you can visit here : http://www.lovethymakeup.com/products/technic/page/3/

the prices are so low and reasonable!


 Im not a huge user of colour corrector items but i know they can come in handy if you are a MUA, or do a lot of your friends/families makeup. It has a wide range of colours to conceal blemishes, hide red/blue/yellow undertones and also has a highlighting and contour colour.
The consistancy of these are very creamy, of which i was suprised as i was expecting it to be more drying, as most sort of budget palettes like these are.
Just look at that highlight shade though!!
 As i mentioned before there are a few similarities with the brand Makeup Revolution, and this highlighter is similiar in regards to shape, pigment and colour. Its a bright highlighter and shows up well! The blushes are very very pigmented so make sure you tap your brush off before you apply! haha i love the shade range, you get 3 shades for the price of one :)
 my love <3_<3
oh my.
give me a moment.
This is a beauty!
Similar to the Sleek's solstice palette! And i actually think the second colour you can see on my arm which is the first colour in the kit looks like the colour from the ABH moonchild highlighting palette!!! I think it may be lucky clover or something?! anyway, it has such a pink/purple reflective tone to it and i am in love with it. i havent found a highlighter like this on the high street for such a decent price...the other colours are very pigmented too. The 2 left colours are a cream format and the other 2 are a powder. It really pops in person, its a must buy!




This eyeshadow kit im also impressed with due to the pigment of the shades....it has i think 4 shimmer shades which i swatched nearest to my hand and they are just fab! The most perfect brown/cream tones. Also it has some bright blues and purple tones which are amazing to create some evening looks :) 

I hope you loved the products as much as i did! I now have my very own favourite highlighting kit hehe

XOXO
