February’s Birchbox – two weeks on (what’s the verdict?)

Hi my lovelies!

So as you know, I’ve been getting Birchbox for a few months now, and I’ve been doing some unboxing posts as I get the boxes, with my first impressions.
I thought I’d add this post in as a little extra, after a couple of weeks, to give my final verdict on the products I got this month.
If you’d like to see what I originally thought of these products, you can see my unboxing post Here or the video Here.

Snow White inspired makeup tutorial! Red lipstick forever!

Hi my lovelies!

So I know it’s the middle of February and we’re nearing the end of winter, but I thought I’d share with you a wintery Snow White inspired make up look today!

So we all know that Snow White is fair (me), but honestly anyone can pull off this look, it’s really simple and pared back, and doesn’t actually involve many products to achieve it! If there’s one thing I’ve found out, Snow White’s makeup is supposed to look like the no makeup-makeup look, but with a fab pop of ruby red lips! (Please take no notice of my hair on these photos, I had not styled it yet and just clipped it up to show off the makeup!)

Review: GOSH Cosmetics – New Beauty Arrivals SS16!!

Hi my lovelies!

So the other week I entered a twitter competition with Superdrug to win a selection of GOSH‘s brand new SS16 collection – and won! Now I love GOSH lipsticks (one of theirs is my fave lipstick at the minute!) so was really excited to try out some more from the range as I haven’t used a lot of GOSH products before!

Manchester haul and Mum’s birthday present!

Hey my lovelies,

So it was my mum’s birthday back at the end of December, and I got her two tickets for Cats at the Manchester Opera House. Naturally she took me along with her, and so off to Manchester we went on Saturday!

Cats was… well it was kinda weird. I’m still trying to figure out what happened at the end – have any of you seen Cats before and can shed some light on the topic for me? It was quite odd, but I did enjoy myself. The musical was pretty dance heavy and the actors were great!

We also went into the city earlier in the day, did some shopping, and grabbed some food before the show! So I thought I’d show you a little of what I purchased!

Review: MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer

Hi my lovelies!

So I’m quite into matte lips at the moment, and wanted to try a couple of different brands too see which formulations I prefer. So off to my local drugstore I went, and came away with a few different products to try!

One of the lip colours I picked up was from MUA (make up academy), and was part of their velvet lip lacquer range, which are essentially liquid lipsticks that apply like a gloss, then dry to a matte texture.

Mani of the week: Ice-Cream inspired pastel Nails!

Hey everyone!

This post is a little late this week, partly because I loved last week’s nails so much that I kept the polish on for a little longer! The other reason is that I was way too excited about my first Look Incredible beauty box, so I wrote that post first! You can check out my thoughts on that one HERE for the blog post and HERE for the video!

I’m looking forward to spring, so this week’s nails were pastel and ice-cream inspired! I used a mix of mint green, lilac and cornflower blue polishes, and the end effect is really lovely!
