Disappointing Products // Part 1

Hello darlings.

Today's post is a little disappointing products post. I'm one of those people who plan on writing these posts but i don't wanna offend anyone. Which is crazy because we all love and hate different products, if it works for me it might not work for you and vise versa and thats okay!

I keep putting products that i don't like into a bag and forget to blog about them and then it becomes overwhelming. I have a huge bag of things too many to include in one post so i'm gonna split them up into a couple of posts.

**Disclaimer just because it didn't work for me doesn't' mean it wont work for you, i don't hate any brands included in this post, there have been products from them i have loved but sadly these were a miss for me.**
I'm pale hence why i bought the light Hoola, i was worried the original Hoola would be too dark for me. But this has very little colour, and the colour it does give the face is orange. It really didn't work for me, which was shame as it blended really nicely and it was £25.50 so it wasn't the cheapest. Maybe i could use it as a eye shadow to get use out of it. 

This is a weird one, the wand is like nothing i have ever seen before. I find because of the shape wand it didn't catch all my lashes, therefore not the easiest to apply. It didn't give me the volume i was hoping, definitely not a false lash affect. I'm tempted to put another wand in the tube and still use up the product as it wasn't the product that wasn't good, it was the applicator. I normally really like the LO'real Mascaras but this was a miss for me.

The wand on the mascara wasn't as bad as the L'Oreal, i was able to apply the product more easily the problem i had was it was super clumpy on my small lashes, i think for some who have thick long lashes this would really work and i've heard so many good review, hence why i purchased it. But sadly for me its just not he right product, i'm not a fan of spider lashes. 

I was excited to try this product as it was only £4.50 which is a good price for a drugstore concealer and if i liked it would be cheap to repurchase. Sadly this concealer had no coverage and the colour was far too dark which sucked as its the lightest shade available. I think there are a lot better concealers for a similar price at the drugstore, for example, the Revolution Conceal and Define and the Lasting Perfection from Collection.

MUA Brow Luxe: £4.00. 
I purchased this brow product when it was on sale for £2.00. I choose the shade medium brown..... its red. Its way too warm for me. Saying that its a nice crayon, nice texture, its creamy but not too waxy and powder in theory a really nice product just a bad shade for me. Maybe i'll go back and try the darker shade.  

This is the only skincare product included in today post, if i don't like something skincare related i tend to just chuck it away. My first problem with this product is the scent, its way too floral for me. 
Plus it didn't do anything for my pores sadly. It felt nice on the skin but it didn't do what it said and i couldn't stop smelling the scent on my face

I'd love to know some of the products you didn't love?

My Birthday makeup // My 24th

Hello darlings.

Today i thought i would do a little post on the makeup i wore for my 24th Birthday last week. (sorry the picture isn't the best but you know Winter lighting)
I had a wonderful day with my friends and family, we went out to lunch and then watched Dead pool 2 and ordered a Chippy dinner, perfect. 
I did simple golden makeup for my birthday. It was quite a casual day so i went with a neutral look.

Favourite Winter Liquid Lipsticks // Drugstore

Hello darlings.

Today's post is abut my current favourite autumn/winter liquid lipsticks. These are all beautiful mauve/berry colours. And all affordable, thats right they are drugstore beauties. 
I hope you enjoy!
This is the newest liquid lipstick to add to my collection. I'd really wanted this for a while as i'd heard so many people rave about them! I'll tell you one thing this stuff stays on! Even may makeup remover struggled to get it off. It certainly is a superstay product. Its quite drying, its not too bad for me but its not the most comfortable liquid lipstick i've tried. Its a lovely brown nude, the kind of shade i like to wear everyday. Nice creamy texture and dries quite quickly.

This is the most autumnal colour i have out of the three its also the only product i've tried from Lottie London. Its a beautiful berry colour, this is probably the darkest i'll go as any darker they tend to wash me out and makes my teeth look darker. This one dries quicker than the Maybelline one, its long lasting and very comfortable on the lips! 

This is the rosy colour of the three. Very pretty and good for everyday and would suit people the most. Its quite sticky at first when you apply it, takes a minute to dry down. It has a nice shaped applicator, more of a rectangle the only thing is to put a lip liner on first as it quite hard with this shape applicator to get it neat around the edges of your lips. Other than that its a really great product, its long lasting and comfortable on the lips.  
I'd love to know what are some of your favourite autumn/winter lips?

Kisses

No7 Advent Calendar 2018

Hello darlings.

This is just a super quick post to show you guys what arrived yesterday! I know this sold out pretty quickly so i'm so happy i got it i ordered the day before it was released (i signed up to the mailing list). I'm currently recovering from having my wisdom teeth out so lots of bed rest and time off work for me. So having this arrive has certainly made me happier. 
I got this calendar a couple years ago (links, week 1week 2, week 3week 4) and i was wondering if you guys would like similar posts about what is in the calendar again this year. What i did back in 2014 is i did a week by week round up of what was i the calendar. Let me know if you guys would be interested in that kind of thing! I also have the Ghost fragrance one that i bought on clearance a couple months back (left over from last year) id love if you'd let me know if you wanted me to talk about that one too!


Are there any beauty calendars that you guys have your eye on or already bought? Let me if there are any other i should get?

Kisses

September favourites // 2018

Hello darlings.

Today post is my September favourites. I'm so happy that we are coming into Autumn and i'm so excited for October, Its my mum's, my fiance's and one of my best friends birthdays! And not forgetting Halloween. The temperature is changing, the leaves are beautiful and we can't forget the fashion! Whats not to love? Anyway into this months favourites, there a few new items here that i can't wait to tell you guys about! I hope you enjoy.  

This is a new fragrance for me, i bought it on clearance for £18! what a bargain! Sadly its nno longer available but you can still buy it from Boots (link) I think it is a beautiful scent its the only Michael Kors one i like. Its called the Exotic Blossom. Its a very fruity scent, its mango, peach and orange.

Vitamin  E Micellar Oil Pads (not online):
I purchased these as cheaper alternative to my much loved Nip and Fab pads, and i have to say i really like these and will definitely repurchase. But i will also continue to repurchase my Nip and Fab ones too i just love them so much. Although these Vitamin E pads are lovely nothing i've found matches my Nip and Fab pads but as a stand alone product these Vitamin E pads are fab! I think you've all heard me talk to death about Nip and Fab so i thought i'd eave them out of this favourites! The Superdrug Vitamin E pads are really gentle on the skin, takes off my makeup and cleanses my skin thoroughly, a really nice product.
This is my favourite skincare product a the moment. I LOVE this facial spritz. The smell alone is amazing and i can't stop spraying it! I must have used nearly two thirds of it already probably from over spraying it! It leaves my skin feeling lovely and i really do think its hydrating. 

I've already written a dedicated post about this e.l.f lip scrub and as i'm really enjoying using them and now that its Autumn and Winter coming up i thought i'd include them in my favourites. Its really thick and creamy, perfect for this time of year. Its a product that really feels like its doing something. The scent is gorgeous!

Lastly my current favourite concealer. This is a really nice every day to day concealer, it doesn't provide the highest coverage definitely a medium coverage, but can build it up. The colour is perfect for me, nice texture blends really nicely and builds up well and doesn't look cakey! How good is that?

I'd love to know what are your September favourites?

Kisses
