June Favourites

Hey guys!

Can't believe it's nearly July! Time really does fly! Below are a couple of things I've been loving this month, some I've hauled for you and some are just products I've had for a while.

Topshop Lipstick in Nevada
I hauled this the other day and I am in love with it. I've been searching and searching for a nude lipstick with no frills and this is it! Most other colours are too yellow/orange or too dark for my skin tone but this one's perfect. I got it for £8 from the Topshop makeup section.
Maybelline Great Lash mascara in Black
After religiously using Colossal and Falsies, I came back to my old favourite and am loving it again. The wand is so straight forward and it combines with the lovely product to give separated, long lashes. I got it for £5 from Boots.
MAC Eyeshadow in Expensive Pink
This was also hauled a few days ago and it has crept it's way into my top 5 eye shadows! I like to wear this to school teamed with a light shimmery gold colour for a neutral look that isn't bland. I think the orangey gold tones in this eye shadow brings out blue eyes beautifully! I bought this for £11.50 from MAC.
Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat
I had heard so much about this and was debating whether to fork out the £20-something for it when my mother told me hers was too light for her skin tone and that I could have it. I am absolutely head over heels for it now, I wear it everyday and it conceals my dark circles and highlights my under eye area to leave me looking fresh and awake! I would definitely repurchase this treasure, I can't live without it! You can get it in House of Fraser or Debenhams.
17 Lasting Fix nail polish in Forever
I got this in a 3 for 2 sale, not really thinking much of it, and wasn't really bothered to try it out but when I did, I swear the Angels sang! This is my favourite polish of all time and I am in no hurry to buy any others. It's a gorgeous nude brown colour, perfect for school or work, and it's simply amazing. I think it was only £2/£3 as well! Can be purchased at Boots.
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Orange
I originally bought this as an eye shadow base, like all my other jumbo pencils, but discovered another use for it: a colour corrector for blue tones under the eye. I just dab it under each eye before my foundation and it works like a dream, and for only £1! In America I think it's around $4 but I got mine in a drugstore on sale. You can also puchase these from

I hope this is helpful to some of you, I recommend every single product, they're all amazing! To view the video please click here and whilst you're there, please subscribe! :)

Nails of the Day - Bright Blue Cream

Hiya :)

So yesterday I went into boots to buy some new nail polish and I realised that I didn't own a standard blue cream! I thought it was one of those essential colours so I picked one up from 17 for £2.99 and thought it was lovely for summer.

It's from the 17 Lasting Fix range which I own 2 other colours from so I might do a review on them. The colour is Seabreeze and I used the MUA clear polish as a top coat. I really love this colour and I'm considering putting the matte top coat from ELF over to simulate Phoebe from Zoya's Mod Mattes collection but I haven't decided yet :)

I hope you like this colour as much as I do, if you have any other colours from this range, let me know as I'm eager to try some more.

E.L.F Studio High Definition Powder Review

Hey guys!

So I have a little review for ya and it's the HD setting powder I got from E.L.F about a week ago. It was £6 but I got it in the 20% off sale. I've been wearing it every day and here is my conclusion.

So as you can see, the packaging isn't very practical and can get quite messy. I forgot to photograph and review the powder puff that it comes with, I don't like to use powder puffs as they aren't hygienic as they will be touching your face then back to the product over and over and you can't really clean them. But I've heard that the powder puff will stop the product from falling everywhere, so that's your decision :)

Good Points:
Leaves healthy matte finish
Doesn't show up white or chalky on skin
Good value
Comes with a sifter
Good customer service on website

Bad Points:
Container too big for product
Packaging doesn't contain product well, lot's of mess
Powder puff on top of product

Overall I would definitely recommend this powder, it's so inexpensive and is a must have in my makeup collection for setting face products. You can purchase it from or depending on where you live :)

I hope this review was helpful, please subscribe to my channel and follow this blog! x

Nails of the Day - Lilac and Black Crackle

Hey guys!

Sorry for the lack of videos and posting, we've been really busy with exams lately. I bought a couple of 17 polishes the other day and wanted to try them out, I like the way it turned out so I wanted to share it with you :)

The colour from 17 is called 'Sweet Kisses' and the crackle polish is the 'Instant Nail Effects' in black from Barry M.
I used 2 coats of sweet kisses and one thin coat of the crackle with a clear top coat from MUA and it's been wearing really well, I find you get a lot of compliments with crackle polish :)
