September Favourites

Monthly Favourites

I have lots of random various favourites from September so I'll start with the Beauty ones first! First is Simples Eye Roll On, this is perfect for waking up tired sleep eyes in the early mornings. It feels so refreshing and cooling just like having a quick pamper session first thing, I love this little product and Simple are a great brand for gentle skincare products if you have very sensitive skin, I love this one! Next beauty favourite is the Beauty Kitchen Free From Wonder Balm* I wont say too much about this because I've put a review up which you can read here if you want to know more about it but I've been using this constantly on my lips to keep them hydrated and moisturised and the packaging is just too cute!

Beauty Kitchen Free From Wonder Balm

Beauty Kitchen Free From Wonder Balm Review

You know how much I love lip balms so this post will come at no surprise to you guys at all! However have I got a little gem for you. The Award Winning Beauty Brand, Beauty Kitchen who specialise in 100% Natural Products have added a new balm to their Wonder Balm range. Which is the Free From Wonder Balm* it's Vegan Friendly, it contains all natural ingredients , it's unscented and..it's pretty darn good! Using something knowing that the product contains nothing but 100% natural ingredients is just incredible, you just know it's going to be good to your lips.

So firstly, the packaging. It's in the cutest little tin where you just slide the lid to the side to reveal the balm. It's small, it's cute. I loved the packaging as soon as I saw it, it's adorable! From the first use of this little balm I was seriously impressed. Sometimes with lip balm tins you have to rub quite a bit to get a decent amount of product but not with this, a little goes a long way. It applies really nicely, it is a tad on the gritty side and feels like you're applying a subtle lip scrub - think that kind of texture but that didn't bother me in the slightest. It instantly feels moisturising and hydrating and isn't sticky at all. It leaves your lips with a nice glossy shine as well. For a lip balm it has pretty good staying power but once it has faded still leaves your lips feeling moisturised.

This really is the perfect addition to your handbag this Autumn and Winter. I now want to collect the whole range..oops? You can get This Free From Wonder Balm and see others from the range in Holland and Barratt.

Miss Sporty Perfect Stay Liquid Concealer Review

Miss Sporty Make Up, Miss Sporty Concealer, Miss Sporty Concealer Review

I purchased this little Miss Sporty Perfect Stay Liquid Concealer after watching Lucy and Lydia use it and compare it to Rimmels Wake Me Up Concealer, which I love. After having a browse over on Superdrug and seeing that the concealer was on offer for £2 something I took a chance and bought it to give it a go. I can see why it's been compared to the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer because it has a lot of similarities.

August Favourites

Monthly Favourites, Tanya Burr Cosmetics, Mad Beauty, Stationery

I've got just a few favourites from August to share with you. One thing I've been really loving is the Mad Beauty Winnie The Pooh Body Balm* it's really moisturising and has a really strong floral scent to it which I didn't think I'd be such a fan of but I really do like this. You get quite a lot of product too and you don't need to use huge amounts at all so I think this will last a fair while, love it! You can read more on this here if you like!

Crafty Creatives | A Craft Subscription

Crafts, Crafty Creatives, Concrete Plant Pot, Crafts, Crafting, DIY, Homeware, Subscription Service, Subscriptions, Craft Subscription Service

Crafty Creatives is a lovely little subscription service for all the crafty people out there. Each month you can get sent a little craft kit containing everything you need to create the little project for that month.

So to show you a sneaky peek of what you can expect I kindly got sent the craft kit* for last month, to get my craft on. For this I received everything to make a cute little concrete plant pot from scratch. The kit itself included easy to follow, step by step instructions and included everything you'd need to make it which I liked. As some kits sometimes need a few additional extra bits and pieces but not with this.

I followed the instructions but had my doubts that I wouldn't make it as pretty as it looked in the picture (always happens right?) but it was still really fun to make! Concrete Plant Pots are really in trend right now, they're literally everywhere as is copper! So I was excited to see the finished result. After using the moulds and mixing the concrete together (thanks to Be My Anchor for helping me out) you simply had to leave it for a few days to fully set, then it would be ready to paint with the prettiest metallic copper paint.

After leaving it for a few days so the cement was definitely all set, next was to remove the moulds, these were just made out of cardboard so all you had to do was rip it away, easy. After the moulds were removed I left my pot a further day as the cement still felt a little tacky too paint. Once it was all set, it was painting time.

Crafts, Crafty Creatives, Concrete Plant Pot, Crafts, Crafting, DIY, Homeware, Subscription Service, Subscriptions, Craft Subscription Service

And this is my finished result ta-da, what do you think? I'm really happy with how it turned out it's so cute! I finished mine by popping in a flower but I think this is also great to keep in little trinkets. There's something so nice about knowing you made it from scratch, which is why I love crafts! And I thoroughly enjoyed doing this one.

If you're a craft fan or know of one definitely have a look at the Crafty Creatives Subscription service.

Sensodyne Pronamel Toothpaste

Sensodyne Strong and Bright Enamel Toothpaste, Sensodyne Toothpaste Review, Sensodyne Pronamel Toothpaste Review

I've been testing out a new toothpaste recently which is the Pronamel Strong and Bright Enamel* Toothpaste. This particular one is to protect your teeth from acidic foods because these foods can damage your teeth enamel over time. So even though you're being super careful with eating healthy fruits and juices, it's not so healthy for your teeth and that's where this toothpaste comes to the rescue. The Strong and Bright Enamel helps you look after and protect your teeth from the acidity in foods and drinks and allows you to keep them nice and white as well which is a definite bonus in my eyes!
This toothpaste is definitely more on the very strong minty side which definitely leaves your breath feeling and smelling super super fresh! I think with continuous use this will really help protect, brighten and whiten your teeth. If you tend to have a lot of fruits or juices in your diet, this is definitely worth a try. Also another thing I want to mention is drinking through straws tends to protect the whiteness of your teeth too!

You can find this Pronamel Toothpaste in Boots for around £5!

What are your top tips for protecting your teeth?

Summer Make Up

My Go To Summer Fragrance

Summer Fragrance, Summer Fragrances, Body Fantasies Body Spray

The one fragrance I always used throughout the Summer is my Pink Grapefruit Body Fantasies* Body Spray. I love these little fragrances especially because you can buy them in small bottles as well as bigger versions. I love the little versions and think they're the perfect size for popping into your bag. The container of the fragrance is a soft plastic, so no worries of it smashing and leaking everywhere either. I have done a review on some of the Body Fantasies* so you can read that here if you like! One thing I have noticed since using these a while now though is that sometimes I find that they don't spritz too well and just leaks, so they can be a little messy. It really does depend, sometimes it's completely fine and spritzes perfectly other times a bit leaky. But nonetheless it doesn't take away how much I like the Body Fantasies fragrances as a whole. This one in particular as you would probably expect has a lovely fruity scent, if you tend to like fruity fragrances I think you'd really love the Pink Grapefruit scent. It might just be my favourite scent from their range so far! It lingers for a while and even with the smaller bottled versions, they really do last a while.

What're go to Summer scents?

Summer Lip Products

Summer Lips, Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Gloss, Tanya Burr Cosmetics, NYX Lip Cream

I thought it was time to change up my make up and introduce more Summery make up products. Which of course means lip products too. The first addition into my make up bag is the NYX lip cream in the shade Sydney. I love this lip cream. It applies really evenly and smoothly, it dries quickly into a matte finish but I don't find it too drying at all. The shade Sydney is a really pretty lilac and baby pink shade. I was obsessed with liquid lipsticks last year and this was a huge favourite.

I always tend to suffer from dry skin and found some make up removers to be a bit harsh that seemed to leave my skin feeling sore. So after hearing about Garnier releasing an Oil Infused Micellar Water I purchased this hoping it would clear off all my make up gently and keep it hydrated with the oil.

April Favourites

Monthly Favourites

Happy May everyone! So it's the start of a new month (well it was when I wrote this) which means it's time to ramble about my favourite things from April yay!

So McVities Nibbles..I ate a lot of packets of these so many (this is why there's no picture didn't think you'd want to see a picture of an empty packet..I need to hide them away from me pronto) ha! Like I have any left! But seriously if you've tried these you probably know what I'm talking about you can't just have a couple they're so addictive you end up eating the packet without realising (not just me right?) but these are seriously yum!! If you love biscuits and chocolate (who doesn't) then definitely give them a try, but if you're eating healthily (steer clear!) you have been warned!

One For The Stationery Lovers | Paper Haul

Paper Haul Stationery Subscription

It was just National Stationery week last week, if there was any excuse to buy more stationery that would be it. I love Stationery I use it all the time - any excuse to write anything down and I totally will. In honour of National Stationary Week I thought I'd tell you about a cute little monthly stationery collection from Paper Haul* first thing to note about this is it's small enough to be posted through your door, so no need to wait in and it's surprising how much is included! Subscription boxes and collections are so cute they're basically the adult version of lucky dips, weren't they the best things?!

Hope you've all had a lovely Easter I sure did, eating your weight in chocolate and chocolate for breakfast good times! Enough rambling from me, onto the post!

Sleek Oh So Special Eyeshadow Palette, Sleek Oh So Special Eyeshadow Palette Review

Getting A Good Night Sleep


Getting A Good Night Sleep

Getting a good night sleep is so so important, there's lots of little things you can do to ensure you have a good night sleep so here's a few little tips!

Switch Off ♡
Yup it's hard but we all need to do it from time to time completely switch off put the phone away and relax in bed with a hot chocolate and a favourite movie or a good book, sounds so relaxing doesn't it?

Try A Sleep Mask ♡
I've been testing out an overnight sleep mask by Beauty Kitchen it's the Beauty Kitchen Abyssinian Oil Night Halo Mask* ideal for Sleeping Beauty's. The mask which has a scent that's said to give you a good nights sleep while it hydrates and gives your skin a detox as you sleep! Love the fact you can pop this on at night and just wash it off in the morning. It's in the form of a balm that feels instantly hydrating on the skin when applied. I was expecting it to dry like a face mask but it didn't my face felt damp all night like I'd gone a bit too crazy with moisturiser. The scent of this is so so lovely it has hints of orange it's so nice and strong so you don't need to use much of this at all, in the morning your face feels soft hydrated and refreshed. Really nice little product fit for a Princess!

Get An Early Night Sleep ♡
We've all been there a quick check of Instagram at midnight and by 2am you've been on 10 profiles and scrolled back to their first posts or ended up watching endless amounts of YouTube videos but try and set a time especially if you haven't been sleeping too well and just get a good early night sleep.
Have a Shower before bed - There's lots of calming shower products that are ideal to use to ensure you're relaxed and get a good night sleep. I've been loving this Body Wash* by Weleda it's lavender scent is so nice, lavender is such a well known scent for helping relax, calm the mind and help get a good nights sleep.  This one is a body wash and smells so nice! If you love lavender you need to give this one a try.

Having A Bath ♡
Baths are one of the most relaxing things whether you're a Lush fan or a bath product fan there are so many products out there just to make your bath a bit more relaxing with relaxing scents. This one by Kneipp is a Herbal Sweet Dreams Bath Oil* that contains Hops that is said to have calming qualities especially at bedtime, you just fill the cap and pop it into your bath and wow the scent of this is so strong even with just a small amount seriously it's so nice, think lemon with lavender, definitely recommend this one for a relaxing calming bath.

What are your favourite products and tips for a good night sleep?

Youtube Made Me Buy It

Youtube Made Me Buy It

I've seen this tag floating about the YouTube world and decided to do it on here, why not? It's the YouTube Made Me Buy It Tag now I'm not going to lie YouTube has made me buy a lot of things so this one may turn into a bit of a series some I'm glad I purchased some..not so much darn, onto the products..

Maybelline Eye Eraser Concealer
This isn't in the picture because I've lost it somewhere to be honest and I couldn't find it but this one was a disappointing one for me I just couldn't get on with it. I guess it's a classic case of "What works for someone else might not work for you" now ain't that the truth. I'm used to using concealer with wands but this one has a sponge applicator and I could get enough product out no matter how much I tried maybe it was a dud one I don't know but I could not get the hang of it tried to use it a few times still couldn't get enough product up flung it to the side (probably why I can't actually find it now) and carried on using my trusty Wake Me Up Concealer I was so disappointed with this one, has anyone else found the same or did I just have a broken one let me know please?!

NYX Lip Cream
I think in fact I'm sure it was Zoe (Zoella) that made me purchase these but as soon as I tried it I was sold from the get go these really are amazing silky soft lip creams. I'm so glad I gave these a chance must buy some more shades.

Maybelline Sensational Mascara
Another Maybelline one here that I'm still not convinced with (sorry Maybelline) I am a big fan of Maybelline (they're Baby Lips range is the best thing ever haul post here) and if you have heard of this mascara you'd know everyone loves it..then there's me that just can't get along with it and I really want to give it another try. Every time I see someone use this on a tutorials their lashes look incredible then I use it and it doesn't quite work. I'm sat on the fence with this one but I do want to keep trying it, everyone tell me your secrets on how to use this mascara I must be doing something wrong!

Candy Crush Lip Balms

Candy Crush Lip Balms Review

You know that game that everyone's still obsessed with..yeah that one Candy Crush! You pop on to play for a while and 5 hours later..yep still on it. But this isn't about the game..Ohhh no..this is about Candy Crush Lip Balms. Yep feed your game obsession with these cute novelty lip balms, these are so ideal for a gift if you know someone who loves this game, I mean who doesn't?! Although when I get stuck on a level for days I certainly don't!

The Candy Crush lip balms are available in a choice of four candy flavours which are Bubblegum Bridge* Lemonade Bake, Chocolate Mountains* or Peppermint Palace.

Bubblegum Bridge doesn't have any tint to it but smells just like bubblegum and chocolate mountains has a berry chocolatey scent with a slight berry tint which is a your lips but better tint both leave your lips feeling moisturised.

These fun little lip balms are available in Primark now!

March Favourites


I've got quite a few favourites for a change so let's get started!!

Maybelline Pink Gold Tattoo
I cannot rave about how much I love the Maybelline Tattoo Eyeshadows I definitely need to get me some more of them. If you don't know these are cream based eyeshadows that are super blendable and really easy to apply for a quick make up look. The pink gold is a pretty subtle pink shimmer shade perfect for Spring.

Winnie The Pooh Lip Balm*
I love this little lip balm from Mad Beauty, yes it being Disney-Themed makes me love it that extra bit more it's just so darn cute but it helps keep my lips hydrated through the day.

Rimmel Oh My Gloss Purr..Glossy Cat
This dare I say it may be my favourite lip gloss ever, it's a perfect not really there lip gloss shade that makes your lips super glossy, I looooooove this and the name is just too adorable. I need to get 6 of these haha!

Animal Headband*
I've also been loving this cute little headband from Mad Beauty it's so adorable and I use it everytime I apply my make up as it keeps my hair away from my face and it's adorable!

Pink NYC Nail Polish ♡
I've been loving this nail polish by NYC, it's a really muted pink shade that looks so pretty on. Gotta love pretty pink nails in Spring!

Sabrina The Teenage Witch
I've been Re-watching all of Sabrina The Teenage Witch episodes and I literally forgot how good this show was! I've literally been watching it everyday.

Frozen
I'm a Disney girl, I love Disney movies and I hadn't watched Frozen for such a long time until recent and now I love it all over again! If you haven't seen it and you love Disney movies you HAVE to watch this..do you want to build a snowmaaaaan?..

Ghostbusters
I've watched the new Ghostbusters movie twice..okay maybe 3 times now but it's seriously so so good! I freaking love Melissa McCarthy! Definitely worth a watch if you haven't seen it!

New In From Nivea

Nivea Creme and Oil Pearls, Nivea Silk Shower Mousse, New Nivea Releases

Nivea Shower Creme and Oil Pearls*
You know when you first try out a product and you know from the first use you're going to love it? Yeah that's what happened when I first tried this out. This shower Creme contains argan oil which is ideal for hydrating skin, argan oil has been added to a lot of lip products to maintain hydrated lips. The Creme itself is like something The Little Mermaid would use, I loved it instantly, the Creme is a pearl texture with small pearls in that are not harsh on the skin in any way they just gently exfoliate the skin while making you look like a sparkly Princess as you rub it in forming into a foam and when it's washed off leaving it feeling clean and soft. It's a Princess worthy Shower Creme and its my new favourite shower product - Nivea are becoming my favourite brand for these products. This is available in three scents Ylang Ylang - which is the one I have and I think it's the perfect scent that no one wouldn't like it's not too strong and not too light, Cherry Blossom - which I now want and Lotus - in case you haven't guessed I want this too now!

Nivea Silk Shower Mousse*
Another new product from Nivea is a Silk Shower Mousse the first thing I really liked about this is that it has a scratch and sniff sticker so you can test the scent before you buy it this is seriously so good! There's so many times you want to sniff a product to see if you like the scent or not and you can't so I love the fact they've done this, well done Nivea! Now for the product itself I've never known or tried a shower mousse before especially if I read the instructions right you apply just before you get into the shower it basically looks just like a hair mousse and you rub it onto your skin which lathers and sinks in really quickly and you just wash it off in the shower it's so good in the mornings when you want a quick shower in a hurry leaving your skin feeling silky smooth and soft.
Nivea are smashing it with their bath body and shower ranges right now *heart eye emojis*

A Little Beauty Wishlist

Beauty Wishlist

Baby Lips Lip Crayons
As you probably know if you saw my Baby Lips post or my Maybelline Haul you'd know how much of a fan of the Baby Lips range and they've just brought out a range of Lip Crayons squeal! If you've tried these let me know what you thought of them!

Sleek Solstice Highlight Palette
This really looks like one of the best drugstore highlighting palettes and I'm really loving highlighter at the minute but I don't think I have any super pigmented ones just subtle ones the whole palette just looks beautiful.

Ariana Sweet Like Candy Perfume
The Ariana perfumes are just the cutest aren't they? They smell so nice and I love the packaging it's just so adorable.

Library Of Fragrance Pixie Dust
Pixie Dust Scent? Need I say anymore!

MUA Highlighting Powder
Following on from what I said earlier in wanting to use lots more highlighters and this is a highlighting powder which I've never tried before it looks really interesting.

Rimmel Fresher Skin Foundation
Rimmel Foundations by far are my favourite foundations and this one sounds so lightweight and I've never tried a foundation in this style before, really want to try this one.

Trying Out Technic Cosmetics

Technic Cosmetics Review

Technic Cosmetics are a brand I've seen popping up a lot recently especially over on Instagram so many pretty things, I've never tried anything from them before and they kindly sent me some products to test out.

Technic Get Gorgeous 24ct Gold Highlighting Powder*
This highlighting powder is pigmented, like really really pigmented to the max which is great however..you knew that was coming didn't you? It's a very warm toned bronzer which I think would suit darker skin tones more. Once I applied this as a highlight it looked like I'd put bronzer in the wrong places..not so good. So for me this is much better as a glittery bronzer for a sunkissed glow but it's a really great product I'm just more of a cool toned highlighter girl.

Technic Cosmetics 24ct Gold Highlighting Powder, Technic Cosmetics 24ct Gold Highlighting Powder Swatch, Technic Cosmetics 24ct Gold Highlighting Powder Swatches

Technic Colour Correcting Setting Powder* ♡
This actually reminds me of a Banana type setting powder that seems to be popping up a lot in the beauty community at the moment, this one is yellow toned but don't be alarmed you wont end up looking like a Minion or anything it works great for under the eyes, setting the concealer in place, cancelling out those dark under eye bags and brightens well.

Technic Mega Lash Mega Volume Mascara*
This mascara has a mega thick brush that applies the mascara really well, I didn't find it added a massive amount of volume but definitely some, it lifted my lashes, defined and lengthened them really well this actually reminds me of the Max Factor False Eye Effect Mascara which I love a possible dupe perhaps? I'll keep you updated on that one.

Technic Eyebrow Definer* ♡
Not gunna lie I normally stick to powders for filling in my eyebrows so this one was completely new for me. It swatches like a felt tip so I was terrified that it would just look like I applied felt tip to my brows but oh no not the case at all. This just does what it says it thickens the brow hair making them look more filled in but leaving you with a natural finish think your brows but better type thing. I couldn't believe how not intense it was compared to how it was when I swatched it, really like this one.

Technic Glitter Eyeshadow Primer*
So I hold my hands up I'm lazy when it comes to eyeshadow primers and don't tend to use them I guess I find my eyeshadow lasts for me without one but I was excited to give this a try. This is especially for shimmer Eyeshadows which I love - all about that glitter. Once I applied this to my eyelids the strong smell which I never noticed beforehand actually caused my eyes to sting and water, my Sister gave it a try and didn't find the same so must be me. However it blended in fairly well leaving a light pink shimmer on my eyelids ready for my eyeshadow which I packed on top, it did keep my eyeshadow locked in place, made my eyeshadow that much more intense than it normally has been without using one and added an extra shimmer to my eyeshadow so it definitely worked really well.

Have you tried Technic Cosmetics?

First Impressions | Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Angel Mascara

Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Angel Mascara, New Maybelline Mascara, Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara Review

As soon as I heard about the Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Angel Mascara, I was so desperate to try it. I used to love using the original Falsies Mascara and this sounded too good not to try, I've never really found a holy grail mascara at least not yet anyway (Feel free to let me know your favourite ones please!). The wand with this mascara is the most unusual one I've used before, it's a plastic mascara brush with just a few bristles on, which is so different than your usual mascara brush that's for sure. After using this just once I was so impressed with how it made my lashes look it instantly lifted them which I've never noticed a mascara I've tried do before. So on first impressions I'm loving this! Have you tried this one?

Mad Beauty

Mad Beauty Review

As you probably know I love anything..ANYTHING to do with Disney and Mad Beauty's range of Disney Inspired Products along with their other cute ranges are so pretty. I'm such a lover of pretty packaging and pretty little things and if you are too you need to know about Mad Beauty.

They have such a different range of cosmetic products to pamper and just all round cute and fun little things - all in the cutest packaging I must say. They kindly gifted me some items to show you and they're the cutest! Ahhh lets get to it!

Winnie The Pooh Lip Balm*
It's a Winnie The Pooh Honey lip balm which is a win from me before I even tried it to be perfectly honest with you but the product itself doesn't disappoint. The Lip Balm has such a nice honey scent to it and is great for popping in your bag to keep your lips hydrated on the go. I was suffering from dry and chapped lips when this arrived so I put this to the test I applied this 3 or 4 times a day and it helped! You could see a noticeable difference and it kept them feeling soft and hydrated throughout the day. Did I mention it's cute?

Winnie The Pooh Body Balm*
As well as a Lip Balm Mad Beauty also have a Winnie The Pooh Cream in their range it's the same packaging as the lip balm but with a different scent it's honey and orange blossom and if you love strong floral scents you'll really like this, the scent is so strong and a little goes a long way with this product and leaves you smelling nice hours later just as it smelt when it was first applied which I really liked. The cream sunk into the skin so quickly I was really impressed it didn't leave my skin feeling sticky or tacky either. I love this one!

Disney Tinkerbell Sparkling Bath Dust*
Sprinkling Fairy Dust into my bath is just a win for me it's the cutest thing! You can sprinkle in as much as you like and it leaves your bath water baby pink with speckles of glitter shimmering in the water looking just like speckles of pixie dust it's just so so cute. This also smells amazing, to me it was a lavender based scent which is so calming and great for a good night sleep so I love this. Again the packaging is so cute!

Animal Face Masks*
I think these are perfect for a girls night in, it was such a fun night trying these out full of laughs and giggles. If you're looking for a soothing face mask with a bit of fun these are for you. Aside from the fun side to them it feels so soothing, hydrating and moisturising on your skin and leaves your skin feeling fully refreshed.

Animal Headband*
I usually reach for an average headband to hold my hair back when applying make up or moisturiser but this is the cutest headband for that, it's not too tight and the material is really soft and holds back your hair while making you look cute, bonus! I already want the full range, I love it!

Disney Quote Handcreams*
This set comes with a pack of three, each with a different scent and each with a different cute Disney quote printed on the front which, of course, I loved. The scents were Strawberries - so nice, Pear and Ginger which was almost a coconut fresh scent and Cheeky Cherry which smells just like sweets. Each of these weren't sticky or clammy in the slightest, sunk into the skin so quickly and left my hands feeling really soft!

I loved each and every one of these products I can already see my Mad Beauty Wishlist forming of more products I want to try! Definitely give them a look if you love cute and Disney products!

Have you tried Mad Beauty products before?

Handbags in winter definitely need a Handcream in there to protect your hands from drying due to the cold weather. That's where Niveas Handcreams* come in they've just relaunched and these are so cute the packaging makes it ideal for just popping into your handbag but do they actually work?.. Yes they do! The consistency of these means you don't need to use much at all and they instantly make your hands feel so so soft without feeling tacky or wet, it dries instantly and as a bonus they smell really nice too! If you're on the lookout for something to make your hands super soft definitely try these out!

Maybelline Haul

Maybelline, Maybelline Baby Lips, Maybelline Haul

So I've been buying some make up bits here and there and turns out they were all Maybelline and yes most of them are from the Baby Lips range (swoon) I've seen they've added lip crayons to the range now so they've been added straight to the top of my Beauty Wishlist so I decided to put them altogether and show you the products I've bought.

Maybelline Blushed Nudes Palette
Pretty sure this was the only one I purchased not from the Baby Lips range. This eyeshadow palette looks like a dream and I've already tested it out the eyeshadows are SO soft so so soft (that soft) and blend really nicely. I loved the look of the shades, they looked like perfect everyday light and subtle shades, perfect.

Baby Lips Lip Balms
So I couldn't resist adding two more lip balms to my collection one is in the scent Peach and is so nice I could literally eat it (but I won't just FYI) and the other is one from the Pop Art collection which I didn't know about and now I have one I want them all.

Valentine's Baby Lips Lip Balms
Pretty sure these two are limited edition and they're so pretty both have minty scents and I love the little heart on the lip balm itself too cute!

Baby Lips Lip Glosses
Not only are the size of these adorable they're really pretty and subtle lip glosses great to keep in your bag and so easy to apply the applicator isn't the softest but I really like the lip gloss nonetheless.

Maybelline The Falsies Angel Mascara
I wanted to give this one a try after hearing about it the wand is like no other mascara wand that I've seen anyway and I'm excited to give it a try.

Baby Lips Lip and Blush Balms
Another fairly new product I was yet to try was the Lip and Cheek Balm I love the fruity scent and the round sort of ball (great explanation there) of lip balm which applies so easily and feels really hydrating on the lips I love the style of these and the packaging and I bought one then bought another because I liked it so much. Baby Lips is my favourite range!! And this did not disappoint I was really really impressed by this is reminds me kind of the EOS Lip Balms kind of Style and the Cube type ones but I'm all about cute and novelty and when the product is just as great it's a winner!

Have you tried any of these?

January Favourites

January Favourites

Baby Lips Lip and Cheek
This bad boy is a multipurpose product you can use it on your lips as a balm or cheeks as a cream blush and it's just amazing, I loved this as soon as I tried it out and want to get more from the range. I'll do a more detailed review of this soon but the pigmentation is incredible for this type of product! If I could own the whole baby lips range that would be great thank you! Definitely still up there with my favourite product ranges.

Benefit Rollerlash Mini Mascara
If you know me at all you'd know that I pretty much love travel-sized mini products I just find them adorable and would much rather buy these than a normal sized version oops. Besides they're great for trying out a new product. I actually borrowed this one from my sister Be My Anchor (Thanks sis) and well..haven't given it back. I'm always fussy with Mascaras I never really love one but this one may be my favourite yet. With the mini version obviously you have a mini mascara wand but I find using smaller wands so much easier than normal sized (at least I poke myself in the eye less anyway) and I love the look this gives on my lashes, so I will be purchasing this one myself and probably should get my Sister another one too..yes in the mini version it's just too cute okay!

Garnier Oil Infused Micellar Water
This one is a big favourite (forgot to take a picture of it though..oops) and particularly great for those of you who suffer with dry skin and come on that's most of us in Winter. What's different between this one and the original Micellar water is the oil you may have seen pictures where there's a line of yellowish oil floating at the top and it works wonders in removing your make up gently and easier leaving your skin feeling refreshed and hydrated and doesn't leave your skin looking oily in any way either.  It smells so nice as well and lasts really well although mine is pretty much empty right now so I must get a new one soon so I'll stop rambling on now because I will be doing a review on this one..if I have anything left to say..awkward.

Wake Me Up Foundation
I'm currently the lightest shade in this foundation I really want them to bring out a concealer to match this shade pretty please Rimmel? This foundation has such a good coverage leaving your skin feeling hydrated and looking slightly dewy. It has glitter speckles in much like my trusty Wake Me Up Concealer but doesn't leave you with a glittery face at all it just helps with that healthy glow. This has been a go to foundation of mine for a few weeks now I just can't put it down!

Squiffy Print Pouch*
This pouch from Squiffy Print is so handy for carrying your essentials in I have been using it non-stop and carrying it everywhere with me, it's perfect for carrying even notebooks in as well as make up products I love it! Did a review on this one here if you want to know some more.
