I have been lusting over the Anastasia Beverley Hills Modern Renaissance palette for a while. It has been doing it's rounds recently and of course I want it just like everyone else does! Why? Because, have you seen the colours? They are GORGEOUS. I thought that for £41 it was rather pricey. When I found this palette, I thought I'd try it out. The ABH palette is full of brown, orange and burgundy shades and I thought this would give me some of the same vibes. The M.A.C palette is gorgeous as well and it is only £25! I love M.A.C eye shadows, I only own 2 (all that glitters and espresso) so because I like them I thought I'd try some more shades. I think that M.A.C has a great shade range of eye shadows and I want more! So, I'm not saying I got this palette to be a dupe of the ABH one but I don't have many cranberry, burgundy eye shadows and my makeup collection is missing out. When I received the M.A.C palette I was disappointed because of how it didn't meet my expectations on the colours. I feel like when I researched this, the swatches all looked different because of the lighting. It doesn't give off as much burgundy as I wanted. However, if I got this not having the ABH palette in mind I would 100% use this all the time. I have finally purchased the ABH palette and I can't wait for it to be delivered!

I have not experimented that much with Rimmel since I was at school. I used to be hooked on the lasting finish foundation, stay matte powder and an eyebrow pencil. Now, all I use is a liquid liner which is amazing. I'm not a fan of their base products anymore so I always skip this makeup stand in Boots and Superdrug. However, when shopping with a friend she went to see what Rimmel had to offer as she wanted more lip products. I was surprised and shocked at the amazing colours and lip products they had. My friend swatched so many lipsticks and as soon as I saw the the shade in this post on her hand I had to have it! We also looked at lip glosses as I am really getting back into using sheer glosses on their own, or over lipsticks.

This is the first makeup fixing spray I have ever used and I absolutely love it. I can't fault it in any way. I love the packaging, the price and most importantly, the product itself. Now that I own this I can't imagine not having it. I always think of times where I really needed this product due to my makeup having to be kept on for a long time. It's so much effort touching up your makeup all day but with this, one tiny pat in the T zone in an 8 hour period is all I need.

Hi guys, so today's post is a short little Saturday one. You may have seen these before but I thought I'd share my opinion on the Garner Moisture Bomb masks anyway! Tissue masks are such an amazing invention! It is so much easier to get a mask out of the packet and just put it on your face, rather than make a mess putting a mask on with your hands and washing it off. I got these masks from Boots for 99p each, what a bargain! So I took it out the packaging, fitted it on my face and the mask felt rather cooling and also smelt pleasant. I watched Youtube for 15 minutes and then peeled it off. I rubbed in the product (you can wipe it off if you prefer). My face was left very moisturised so for 99p I couldn't really go wrong and I have VERY dry skin too.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer (what a mouthful) promises that it will cover your most scandalous flaws with a lightweight formula which gives complete coverage and a demi-matte finish. It also states that no matter how much product you apply, keep building and building and it will blend whilst not settling into any fine lines. This is achieved through the Japanese green tea ingredient which revitalises and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and brightening all complexions. Information found on Debenhams website

I am going to start by apologising for the horrendous quality of my pictures in this blog post. I have really upped my photography game over the last couple of months but I really have no idea what is going on today. I thought I'd upload the pictures anyway because I am sure you don't mind... and also I took these before going back to work after 2 weeks off and I am super busy so I don't have much time to improve these . Anyyyyway! As I was sat in my bed feeling poorly whilst getting over my cold I felt a sudden urge to get up and clear out my drawers, strange I know! My everyday makeup drawer was getting out of control and it ended up being hard to shut. I knew some products that I stopped using had to be taken out and replaced with new things that I have got and also old products that I want to bring out again.

When my dad went to Vegas and I have never been to excitedddddd thinking about what makeup I could get. However, I don't think my poor dad wanted to visit different drugstores to find the many products I wanted. He kindly said if I wrote a list he would try to find some of the products. He obviously has no clue about makeup and brands so I made the list very clear and literally asked for a few things. I didn't ask him to go to Sephora as that would be a bit too much haha... So he came back with 3 items which I was very grateful for. He tried his best to find what I wanted and there was only 5 things on the list anyway.
