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 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.

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?
