Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick | Celebrity Skin | swatches | review

For some reason I thought that I had already posted this blog - but I have just found it at the bottom of my drafts oops. So he is my swatches and review on the Jeffree star velour liquid lipstick aha.

I have seen the Jeffree star velour liquid lipsticks everywhere now, no matter what I am on whether that is Instagram, bloglovin or twitter I keep seeing it, so I thought I would bite the bullet and buy one, the most popular I have heard people rave about is the shade celebrity skin which is a beautiful nude shade, so that is the one that I picked up. I managed to order mine from cocktail cosmetics which is based in Birmingham and is a great makeup store that has many different makeup brands from the usa, which is great as it saves on postage and customs - which I hate with a passion!

My disappointing products | Products I regret buying | E.L.F | Primark makeup range | MAC |

I feel that as a beauty blogger it is important to share products that I love but also products that I don't like and felt were a waste of money whether they are high or low end products, I am aware that this is a little bit negative, but I think that it also has it positives so you know what to not splash your money on, however bear in mind that some products that may not work for me, may work for you fine, depending on personal preference, skin type and skin tone, therefore these are my disappointing products.

Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara review | Benefit Roller lash dupe or not?

I am maybe a bit late on this makeup product as I have heard so many people rave about this mascara, but I have had so many mascaras open recently that I haven't had chance to try anything new, also I am normally the sort of girl that sticks to the same makeup products if I fall in love with them which is what happened with the benefit roller lash, until it ran out recently - I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to pick up the maybelline lash sensational mascara from my local boots, as I have heard so many people comparing it to benefits roller lash, so if you are interested in my review of this mascara carry on reading.

Challenge: 7 lipsticks 7 Days | MAC | Colourpop | Makeup Revolution | Be A Bombshell

Challenge: 7 lipsticks 7 Days - mac limited edition lipsticks - velvet teddy, morange, feel my pulse, makeup revolution, be a bombshell lipstick, colourpop liquid lipstick in bumble, mac lip glass in English accents.

I saw this challenge on someone else blog and thought it would be a fun idea as lipsticks are my makeup addiction and I feel that I have some many lipsticks that they don't get nowhere near enough wear and this would be a good way to start wearing different colour lipsticks. when doing challenges like this it always makes me aware of new favourite lipsticks I didn't know I had or liked, so if you are interested in the 7 different lipsticks I wore or just want to branch out to different shades and brands then keep reading.

My 2016 Goals | New Years Resolutions

My goals for 2016 both beauty related and blog related
I am the kinda girl that likes setting goals and having something to work towards or achieve but last year I didn't set any goals or "new years resolution" and felt as though I wasn't being productive or achieving anything in life which starts to make me feel negative, therefore I thought that I would set some goals to achieve this year so that I have got something to work towards and feel proud of accomplishing something- if that makes sense aha!

About the blog...
1. Put More Effort Into My Blog - I feel that I really neglected my blog last year and kind of gave up with it in a way, but I came to realise that my blog is something that I am really proud of - its something to call my own, its something that I enjoy doing and if I was to put more effort into posting on a regular basis I know this blog could be considerably better.

2. Improve My Photography Skills - I know that my photography skills are not brilliant and I normally take hours trying to get the right picture for my blog or Instagram and find that the picture quality is still rubbish, therefore I am looking to invest in a better quality camera and the ditch the Iphone camera for good so that my picture quality improves.

3. To Post More Often On My Social Media - After scrolling through my social media I have found that I don't post often enough, so I am going to make the effort to post more on my social media.

About beauty and lifestyle
3. Breaking Bad Makeup Habits - If you have already read my bad makeup habits post then you would know that there are some beauty habits that I do that I would like to break for 2016,

4. Buying a house - If you have been reading my blog from the beginning then you would know that I was "suppose" to be on a spending ban as I was saving up a deposit to buy my first home - so hopefully 2016 is the year that I buy my first home eeek!

5.Getting Healthy - After giving birth to my second child who is due in march, I am hoping to get healthy and lose the weight, I aiming to lose around 4 stone which does sound like a lot but I believe it is achievable. I think that by achieving this goal it will not only improve my confidence but will just make me more of a happy and positive person.

6. Start University - last year I applied for university and fortunately was offered a place on a nursing course,  but after finding out that I was pregnant with me second child I had to move my place to September 2016, so my goal is still to go to university this year.

I am looking forward to what 2016 will bring and hopefully I reach some or even all of the goals I have set and I hope the same for all of you! 

Thank you for reading don't forget to follow me on

My Bad Makeup Habits | 2016 Goals

we all have the embarassing bad makeup habits that we need to break whether that is not cleaning makeup brushes, not washing makeup off before going to sleep or even checking your foundation shade on the back of your hand

I know that we all have bad makeup habits whether we want to admit it or not, but I have found since I have been blogging about beauty, I have realised that a lot of things I used to do would be considered as a "bad beauty habit" so I thought that I would share with you some of my bad habits and make it one of my 2016 goals to break these habits.

My most used and favorite makeup products of 2015

I would like to start off by saying thank you to all of you who have stuck by me this year and who follow me on social media I can't believe how fast 2015 has came and gone, I have had both challenging and positive things, one of them being my blog growing as much as it has, getting accepted into university on a nursing degree, and finding out I was pregnant with my little princess, but this year I am hoping to do more regular blog posts and try to improve my blog even further.

After looking through my beauty posts of 2015, I thought that I would share with you all my most used beauty products of this year. There have been so many great new makeup brands that I became obsessed with last year (that sounds so weird now saying last year) so I have a feeling this is going to be a long post so I would get a drink, some food and get yourself comfy...I will stop rambling now and get into this post.
