The Best Brow Product?

First of all, apologies for the lack of posts, school work has been taking over my life and I lost motivation so I didn't want to force myself to keep posting and make it become a chore rather than a hobby!

But anyway, I have recently purchased the Maybelline Brow Drama Brow Mascara and I just had to write a post about it.

After running out of my beloved Benefit Gimme Brow I wanted to try out something different. I had seen a few people talk about this product but I was never too bothered about buying it but I went ahead and bought it anyway and I'm so pleased that I did!

I bought it in the shade Medium Brown which is the perfect shade for my eyebrows. I was a little unsure about the applicator at first and thought the shape might be a bit of a gimmick but it actually works really well.

After using this my brows look fuller but still very natural. This is such good value for money and if anyone is looking for a new brow product, I definitely recommend this.

You can purchase this here for £4.99 (at the moment it is on sale for £4.50 at feel unique.)

Taking Care Of My Hair

I have found a hair care routine that I am really happy with right now, my hair is in pretty good condition at the moment and using these products definitely make my hair feel really soft and looking it's best.

When I wash my hair I will sometime use the Garnier Ultimate Blends Sleek Restorer Shampoo and sometimes I will use the Herbal Essences Uplifting Volume Shampoo (which I've nearly ran out of!). Then for conditioner I use the Garnier Ultimate Blends Nourishing Conditioner, this conditioner makes my hair feel so soft, when I put this on I brush it through with my Aqua Splash Tangle Teezer.

Around once a week I use the Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends hair mask, I leave this in for 5-10 minutes when I apply this.

After I am out of the shower I apply half a pump of the Garnier Ultimate Blends Sleek Perfector Oil, I don't dry my hair when I don't have to so I leave it to naturally dry after I have applied this.

I try not to put heat on my hair but when I do, I normally straighten it and before hand I will put the Loreal Elnett Heat Protector Spray in.

Thank you for reading, let me know what your favourite hair products are.

MAC Creme Cup Review and Lip Swatches

I have spoke about a few of my MAC lipsticks recently, which you can check out here (Russian Red, Patisserie, Velvet Teddy) So today I thought I would review Creme Cup.

I was really hesitant with this lipstick as I don't think pink lipsticks suit me very well but I was pleasantly surprised as this is the only pink lipstick I don't hate on me. 

It is a Cremesheen finish and it is very pigmented, really creamy and is super long lasting. MAC lipsticks definitely have the best formula that I have ever tried. (sorry for my horribly chapped lips by the way, didn't really realise until I was writing this - oops!)

I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a really nice pinky-nude that is quite subtle but at the same time, definitely buildable.
You can purchase this here for £15.50

Thank you so much for reading, let me know what your favourite lipstick is at the moment.

The Balm Nude Tude Eye Shadow Palette Review + Swatches

 A few months ago I purchased The Balm Nude Tude Palette, I have been using it a lot since then and so I thought I would do a little review today.

The palette has 12 beautiful shades, there are 3 matte shades and 9 shimmers.
All the shades are fairly neutral and this can be perfect for every day wear but also an intense eye.

There are two versions of this palette, naughty and nice, the shades are all the same but the background behind the shades is different for the two. Mine is the Naughty one.

If you haven't got the biggest collection of eye shadow, this is such a perfect palette as it includes a great range of colours and so many looks can be made out of it.

(L-R, Sassy, Stubborn, Selfish, Sophisticated, Sexy, Serious, Snobby, Stand-offish, Sultry, Seductive, Silly, Sleek)

All the eye shadows are very pigmented and smooth, they apply really well.
Also included in this palette is a matte black which is perfect for me, I get so much use out of it.

I use this palette so frequently and I absolutely love it.

You can purchase this here for £30.

Thank you for reading.

TV Shows You Should Be Watching

I am a huge lover of TV shows, I'm always watching a new TV show and I can't go very long not having something to watch. So today I thought I would write about my favourite TV shows.

Pretty Little Liars, this is a pretty popular TV show and so most people have probably heard of this. I can't go into much detail about this without giving anything away but it's basically about a girl who goes missing and everything just grows from there. The first few episodes are very girly and 'teeny' but if you get through them it gets so much better, trust me!

The 100, This is something that I am currently watching but I am loving it so much at the moment!! It is about a world after a nuclear war where people are living in space hoping they can live back on Earth soon. I have nearly finished season 1 and it is currently part way through season 2 so I haven't got much left to watch.

The Vampire Diaries, this is my favourite ever TV show, I absolutely love it. There's not a very good way to describe it but trust me, it's amazing! Also kind of related to this, I also love The Originals which is a spin off from The Vampire Diaries.

Broadchurch, I also really love Broadchurch, it is basically about a little boy who goes missing. The second series has just ended, it is absolutely amazing and I recommend it to anyone! It also stars David Tennant (who I adore).

So they were all of my current favourite TV shows and if you haven't, you should definitely check some of these out.
Thank you for reading, hope you have a lovely day.

MAC Patisserie

So I have spoke about some of my MAC lipsticks in a few other posts, (Russian Red, Velvet Teddy) so today I'm going to talk about Patisserie.

This was my first MAC lipstick that I bought, I have probably used it the most out of all of them aswell as it is such a wearable shade.

It is definitely a 'your lips but better' shade, it is a lustre and so has a really nice, glossy finish.
Unfortunately it doesn't have great lasting power, I find I do have to reapply this many times during  the day but I still use it so much as the shade is just so pretty.

I definitely would recommend this to someone who wants a really subtle lipstick and who probably doesn't wear a lot of makeup.

You can buy this here for £15.50

Thank you for reading, let me know what your favourite MAC lipstick is.
