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!

I was inspired my Chanelle to do this post, She recently did a really great post on her blog which you can read here about her makeup storage. My makeup trolley has been in need of a tidy up for a while now and I finally got round to doing it, seeing Chanelle’s makeup all organized inspired me to organize mine better.
To store all of my makeup I use this little metal trolley that has 3 different compartments, on the other parts of it I use to store my skincare and hair products.
So that everything was organized I decided to give everything its own compartment; Makeup palettes and setting spray in the pink basket, eye products such as mascara, eyeliner and eyebrow pencils in one tin and then face products such as foundation, bronzer, concealer and primer in the other.
For lip products, the trolley has a handy little basket that hooks onto the front. It is perfect for storing my lip products such as lip glosses, lip balms and lipsticks. Although I might have to find somewhere else to store them soon as my lipsick/lipgloss/lipbalm collection is still evergrowing…
As you can see from the first picture my Real techniques makeup brushes slot in perfectly at the side of the pink basket which is a plus! I love how they come in those cases because they double as a brush stand.
I am really pleased with how this turned out, my makeup is much more organized now!
Hello everybody! Todays video is a Nude smoked look using the boots 17 ‘Nude smoke’ eye shadow trio that I got for Christmas. I fell in love with this and so I decided to do a makeup look based around it.
I love how this look turned out, this is definitely going to be a look that I will use more often!
I hope you all enjoy the video!
Also just a quick note: I have changed my name on here to Bella, I know it might sound a little random but let me explain.. My second name is Bell and as a nickname my friends and family call me Bella, I really like it and so I decided to change my name on here. My YouTube username is ‘Bella Beauty’ so now both my blog and YouTube match.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
