Shopping My Makeup Stash

I find myself buying makeup now more than ever lately and old favourites of mine have been put to the back of my makeup drawers and forgotten about, and then replaced with new products. Having a makeup obsession is an extremely expensive habit, and I've decided to rein that in a bit, especially as it's coming up to the most expensive time of the year(Christmas). To save the pennies I've decided to shop my stash, which means I will be going through my makeup drawers and using up my old and forgotten products instead of purchasing anything new. 

I haven't necessarily chosen one product per category; foundation, powder, concealer etc, but I've gone for a few products which I think deserves so much more love. There are a few makeup products which I was completely obsessed with at one stage, but soon got lost among the many new beauty launches I'd bought into.

Friday, 23 November 2018 Christmas Gift Guide for Him and Her

Oh heck, this month is going by fast isn't it? Christmas is quickly approaching and I'm not even near finishing my Christmas Present shopping yet. As much as I love shopping for presents though, I do find it a bit of a struggle sometimes. My parents are easy to buy for, but what do I buy my sister, brother etc? They're always so fussy and difficult to buy for. Does anyone else have that issue with their siblings? Luckily I haven't had that issue this year.

I am forever searching the high street and online for the best Christmas gifts, but at a good price. What can I say? I love myself a bargain buy. It saves the pennies, plus Christmas isn't about gifting or receiving presents is it? It's about spending time with family. I do like gifting presents though. I just love seeing the expressions on their faces as they open their present. It's one of the nice feelings. Christmas Gift Guide for Him and Her

Huda Beauty Amethyst Obsessions Palette Review and Swatches

I have been lusting over Huda Beauty palettes for god knows how long. I've been meaning to pick up the Rose Gold Remastered palette for a while now but I was always so put off by the price tag. For me to spend £56 on an eyeshadow palette, it has to be good. Before splashing my cash on that one palette, I wanted to give one of their Mini Obsessions Palettes a try so I could get the gist of how the eyeshadows work, how pigmented they are etc.

October Beauty Favourites

What the heck, it's November already? The last year hasn't been the best. It's had it's ups and downs, and I'm really looking forward to starting afresh next year. Not only that, but it's not long until Christmas either. 47 days left to be exact! And I'm waaaay too excited for it. My favourite thing is seeing the boys faces as they open their presents. I can't wait until they're all old enough to experience the magical day.

Now that October has been and gone, we can focus on the festive season. But before we move on, I wanted to go through my October Beauty Favourites. Last month was an interesting month in the beauty world. There's been so many new releases, and I just haven't been able to keep up. There's so much that I want. I have a christmas list as long as my arm(though I'm not expecting to get everything).

Rimmel Stay Satin Lip Colour Review and Swatches

Over a month or so ago I was lucky enough to win one of Rimmels PR packages on Twitter. It was a huge shock and very unexpected. A few days later a huge package arrived in the form of a boom box which was pretty cool, and inside there was the full range of their Stay Satin Lip Colours, alongside their brand new Maxi Blushes. I have since been putting the Stay Satin Lip Colours to the test, and I am pleased to say I'm so impressed.
