NYX Lip liner and Soft Matte Lip Cream Review!

14398152_332087850471059_1442604764_n

While on a shopping in Barnsley (a town near where I live) I popped into boots and spotted an NYX counter! I don’t have one where I live so I was sooo excited when I spotted it! Something I have been wanting to try by NYX for ages is their soft matte lip creams because I have heard so much about them. I had to stop myself from buying the entire counter haha so in the end I picked up these 2 items: The soft matte lip cream in the shade 06 Instanbul and the retractable lip liner in the shade soft pink.

Retractable lip liner (soft pink)- I am not a massive fan of retractable lip liners just because I feel like they don’t last as long as pencil liners but since I loved the colour of this I got it anyway. I love this lip liner because it is quite soft, when you apply this it glides on the lips and doesn’t drag. The formula is really good and doesn’t smudge when its on.

Soft matte lip cream (Istanbul)- I am in love with the shade of this lipstick! Its like a pinky nude shade and perfect to pair with neutral makeup looks. I like the formula of this because its not too drying and it doesn’t crack once it dries which is a problem I have with some matte liquid lipsticks. This is more like a cream as the name suggests, which I love.

Those are the swatches of the lip liner and matte lip cream! The lip cream isn’t quite that dark in person its slightly lighter but its soooo nice I love it!

These are the first products I have tried by NYX and I am very impressed. Both products stayed on really well and are really good quality for an affordable price at £5.50 each.

Have you ever tried any products by NYX? If you have any reccomendations please make sure to let me know in the comments below!

♡ Make Up Mix! ♡

Hello everyone! Before I start I would just like to let you all know that I have decided on a blogging schedule. From now on I will be posting every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, I just think that it will be better and help me to be more organized with my posts. So make sure to look out for my posts on those days.

12277081_178454315834414_1244121400_n

This post features a mixture of beauty products that I have been loving recently. Over these next couple of weeks I am going to try and be good and not buy any beauty products so we will see how that works out! Whenever I try not to buy things I always seem to see a really good offer on and then I cave in and buy loads of things. Does this happen to anyone else or is it just me?

So a few beauty products that I have been using a lot recently include Maybelline primer, 2 lipsticks both nude shades of course. (I have noticed my lipstick collection growing quite a bit recently, I am not complaining though!) A makeup revolution palette and 2 Rimmel nail varnishes.

Maybelline baby skin instant pore eraser: Until I got this last week I had never used it before but I have to say, I have quickly fell in love with it! When I apply this to my skin it feels smooth and I notice the difference when applying my makeup with the primer underneath. It also really helps my makeup to stay in place throughout the day.

Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting finish lipstick in ’45’: Before getting this lipstick I got the one in shade ’42’ and I wanted to get this one too but they didn’t have it in stock. So the next time I went to Superdrug my partner treated me and bought me it, I am in love with the colour of this it is just gorgeous, its like a dark rosy nude colour and its just lovely!

12285620_178454472501065_1128325861_n

Mac lipstick in the shade ‘Velvet teddy’: I mentioned this one in one of my posts last week. I won this lipstick in a giveaway and I am in love with it, it is the perfect everyday nude shade. It’s very versatile and can be worn with daytime or night time make up. Since getting this I have found myself reaching for it a lot as it just seems to pull together any makeup look.

12282804_178454449167734_747754665_n

Make up Revolution Beyond Flawless Palette: This palette is my favourite at the moment! It has a mixture of so many different gorgeous shades that range from lighter nude shades to the darker more smokier shades. As there are 32 different shades in this palette you can use it to create a range of different looks which I love.

12272680_178454425834403_1735796968_n

Rimmel nail varnishes- ‘Glitter bomb’ and ‘Black cherries’: These two nail varnishes go lovely together, black cherries is a deep purple shade and I think it is just perfect for winter, the gold glitter goes really nice with it and complements the colour. I also love the glitter bomb one because in the glitter there is the odd little star which I think is so cute!

The Lipstick Diaries..

12207931_172901923056320_1013715765_n

Hello everyone! So today I thought I would talk about some of my favourite lipsticks at the moment, I have also included 2 lip-glosses because well, why not!

Clinique Pop lip colour and primer (sample size)- My most recent favourite is the cutest little lipstick ever! It is a sample that I got free in this months issue of Glamour (Featured here) The shade is ‘Nude pop’ which is perfect for me as I am sure I mentioned before I love nude shades. The formula of the lipstick is really nice and moisturising on the lips and it has a slight sheen to it.

12233333_172936679719511_461656453_n

Available to buy here.

Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer (301 Galaxy)- I got this one a few weeks back and I absolutely love the colour, it is like a deep plum colour and perfect for autumn/winter time. The only thing about this that I didn’t like at first was the smell, but I don’t mind it as much now and it makes up for it with the gorgeous colour!

12231313_172936669719512_1400738864_n

Available to buy here.

Make-up Revolution #Liphug in ‘When you came to me’- This one was quite a recent purchase, I love this because it is a perfect every day nude shade. I have been wearing this quite a lot since I got it last week. I love these lipsticks because they are super moisturising and have a lovely shine too them. The only thing is that they don’t last as long as some other lipsticks I have, but I don’t mind that too much.

12226691_172936659719513_1442199040_n

Available to buy here.

Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in ‘Shade 28’- The first thing I want to say about this lipstick is that it smells amazing. I cant even describe the smell but its just like a really sweet and lovely smell. The colour of this is gorgeous, I would say this is also a nice everyday lip colour as it is a subtle light pink colour. I love the packaging of the Kate moss lipsticks too, unfortunately I only own one of these at the moment but I hope to get more of them soon!

12207997_172936646386181_1930387643_n

Available to buy here.

Rimmel Apocalips Lip Laquer (500 Luna)- I got this one a little while after purchasing my first one in 301 Galaxy. I am not quite sure how to describe the colour of this.. its like a ‘peachy nude’ but I really love it.

12207932_172935506386295_1343721092_n

Available to buy here.

MUA Lipstick ‘Shade 2’- This one for me is the perfect wintery lipstick, it is a dark plum colour and it is just gorgeous. I have used it on many occasions to create the perfect autumn/winter make up look. This lipstick also smells really nice too! I know the smell isn’t the main thing to look for but if the lipstick smells nice then that is always a selling point for me!

Lipsticks I want to purchase in the future:

MAC- I definitely want to try a mac lipstick as I am still yet to try one! I think the first one I would like to try would be Velvet teddy as I have heard many good things about this lipstick and I love nude shades.

Rimmel- I want to try more of the Kate moss rimmel lipsticks because there are so many gorgeous shades to choose from and at £5.49 they are affordable too!

What are your favourite lipsticks and which ones would you like to try?

Natural Daytime Make-Up Look!

12209177_172118123134700_1758471305_o

This is one of my favourite looks, it is perfect for when you are a bit pushed for time in the mornings or just for days when you feel like going for more of a natural makeup look. I recently bought some Real Techniques make-up brushes, after reading so many good reviews I decided to go out and buy some to try for myself. I chose the Core Collection kit, I am in love with them they are really good quality and well worth the price. I especially like the pointed foundation brush as it applies my foundation perfectly and makes my skin look lovely! I will post a full review on these brushes soon once I have used them a little more.

So, onto the Make-up look! I started by applying Rimmel BB cream, I have spoken about this before (here) As I was going for a more natural makeup look I decided to go for this rather than my usual foundation.

Next I filled in my brows, I used a medium brown eyebrow pencil just to gently outline my brows and then I used Rimmel Brow this way gel to fill them in.

12210757_172118119801367_1340487145_o

Next I applied Blusher to my cheeks, I used my MUA one in the shade ‘Candyfloss’ This blush is the perfect pink shade, it looks very natural and it suits my skin tone just right. Just above the blush, I applied some highlighter. I used the one from my W7 Contour Palette, I also used just a little of this underneath my eyebrows to highlight them, to do this I used the real techniques detailer brush.

12211130_172118089801370_2010641324_o

I then went onto applying my mascara, I chose my Rimmel Supercurler mascara because I think it is perfect for creating natural long looking lashes and also true to its name, it gives your lashes that ‘curled’ look!

To finish of the look, for my lips I chose maybeline babylips lip balm in the shade ‘pink punch’ because it is a lovely colour and I thought it would be perfect as it goes with the MUA candyfloss blush!

This is the finished look:

It is one of my favourite looks as it is so easy to do and it just looks nice and natural. I hope you guys liked it!

Superdrug Haul!

12202181_170499739963205_1278730821_n

I love Superdrug, there is such a wide selection of make up brands and so many different products to choose from, the only thing is my nearest one is quite far from me so I sometimes like to order online. So last Wednesday night after twiddling my thumbs for a while I finally caved in and made an order. They had a 3 for 2 offer on and you also got a free tote bag (Pictured above) so that was good too!

So the first thing I will show you is the lipsticks as I went a little lipstick crazy haha! I got the Liphug lipsticks by Makeup Revolution. I love the red packaging they came in- Very fancy!

These were 2 different sets ‘The nudes’ and ‘The reds’ there were 5 in each set for just £7.50 each, this is such a good price so if you love nude and red shades then I definitely recommend trying these out. They also had ‘The pinks’ which weren’t in stock when I ordered but I am definitely going to try those next time. I do realise that I have only included 9 shades in the picture, this was because I gave my partners mum one because she loved the shade! We are always swapping make up haha 🙂

12209336_170499436629902_566871662_o

From left to right; ‘Not giving up, When you came to me, Insatiable, I think you’re amazing, We have come too far, To get lucky, Saviour will come, I am ready, Who we are’

I am in love with all of these shades, I am also really impressed with the quality of these lipsticks, they have a lovely shine to them when applied and they are very moisturising on the lips.

The next thing I got was the ‘Redemption Palette Essential mattes 2’ by Makeup revolution. All the colours on this palette look amazing and I liked the thought of a palette for just matte shades.

12210748_170926199920559_39164676_o

12204042_170499309963248_1024705630_o

I love all of these colours and they will be perfect for creating lots of different eye looks. I like how they are all matte because sometimes I prefer matte to shimmery.

The other palette I got was ‘Ultra 32 Shade Palette beyond flawless’ by Make up revolution. I love this so much all the colours are so pretty! There is a mix of matte, silk and shimmery shades in this palette and it is perfect for day and night time make up looks.

12207408_170926216587224_1131781460_o

12197103_170499276629918_1189923674_o

I have already used this palette since receiving it and I like it a lot! It is definitely my favourite out of the two even though they are both really nice.

The next thing I got was the Rimmel Supercurler mascara in Black. I saw this advertised and I just wanted to give it a try, after using this for a while I will post a review on it. I am eager to see if it does give your lashes that ‘curl’ effect.

The last thing I got was also from Rimmel and that was the ‘Brow this way’ styling gel. I am really excited to try this! I chose the shade ‘Mid brown’ I will also post a review on this when I have tried it out.

12204077_170926193253893_233518300_o

So that was everything that I got from Superdrug, I hope you guys liked it and  make sure to watch out for the reviews I will be posting on the Supercurler mascara and Brow this way in the next few weeks!
