Make-up Revolution Velvet Lip Lacquers

What do you mean this is my third matte lip product review? Are you merely stating point or complaining cause, girl can never have too many matte lip products, and I just wanted to share this one with you cause for one can we just look at these shades and two their 3 quid a pop!


Umm hell yeah I'm gunna share a bargain with you all and HOLY SHIT I'm in love guys. At first I thought Black Heart was going to be at my centre stage but I can definitely state that Vamp has not left my hand bag and I've worn this one the most I love sheering it out or layering it up for a full on. I still LOVE black heart but haven't really had a good enough chance to play with this as I think it will look super stunning with a full face which at 5am (the time I've been getting up for 2 weeks) that ain't happening, but I have a week of not having to be up so early so I thought I'd take advantage and have a proper pay around with this product. So as I pre-write my posts I may include some shots of the look I've gone for.

Vamp strangely I like it as an everyday lip colour for the autumn I find it sits really nicely even with minimal other make-up. I have to reapply this maybe once or twice a day but it does wear quite nicely I may try put some hourly shots so you can see how I mean like I did for the sleek matte me and bourjois rouge velvet posts but if not meh, I still fricking love this stuff guys!

I do also have one of the MUA velvet lip lacquers which I included in my current favourites this is a very similar formular to the make-up revelution ones and if I was blindfolded I dont think I'd be able to tell the diference I have only triend the one in Reckless which is a really nice true red and I have actually worn this one with black heart for a gothic lip option.
These all set to a Matte finish (I know DOH! Really Tash) but yea they do, I have found they can get a little crumbly after a while and also if you try reapply too soon. Saying that though these are supper pigmented and yea they get crumbly but they do last a good hour or two before that happens and Their £3 guys what more do you want for £3.

Current Favorites

I cant believe its October already, I thought it was time to share with you all some of the things I have been loving over the last month or so. These have been sure stead favourites of mine.
First, is this macadamia oil extract conditioner, this is a super thick conitioner that leaves my hair feeling super soft. I love using this as a mask as it is super rich and nourishing for my hair and it was only a pound! That's right this was only a pound, I found this in the pound shop and I'm so glad I picked it up I love it!

I picked up this shower gel on a whim I basically just needed some as I'd managed to run out and it was just ideally placed in ASDA.

I love rhubarb and custard sweets and holy crap this stuff smells just like the sweets its like having a shower in a sweet shop.
During the hotter months I tend not to wear too much make-up. So since its become a little cooler I've been wearing more and recently dug out this little beauty my Maybelline 24hr colour tattoo in Permanent taupe. I love this for my eyebrows I think its a perfect colour for me as I like my brows quite strong going into fall.
As fall/Autumn approaches I find my self wearing lip colour and usually I go for more red/berry tones, This MUA LUXE velvet lip lacquer in reckless has had a staple place in my make-up bag recently. I love this colour, it's a really nice deep red on me. This lasts so long I love it I've said it before but I hate reapplying lippy this is so easy as it drys matte and lasts a good 3 hours before needing touching up.  
I decided to pick up the Real Techniques Miracle sponge as I had seen so many good reviews at the time I was using the Body shops All-in-one bb cream and was using a cheaper version of the beauty blender which worked OK but when I went back to a liquid foundation I found that my usual sponge was lacking. The miracle sponge is amazing it leaves my foundation looking amazing, I love using the pointed end to apply my powder under my eyes its so versatile I love it and would recommend it to everyone.
Moving on to a skincare item I have been loving this last month, is this argan oil night repair serum. This stuff smells amazing  It has an incredibly rich feel to it, it smooths over my skin leaving it feeling amazingly soft. Love this!!
I've recently fallen back in love with dark nails after months of wearing nude, predominantly Model's Own Utopia. When I saw this colour there was just a light went on and I've got to say I gushed over it. I've not had a nail polish this colour before although it does remind me of an OPI polish I've lusted after before Mrs O'Leary's BBQ. I'm not sure if swatched next to each other they would be the same but looking at it in photos I'd say its very similar and only 99p you can't grumble. I love the Technic's nail polishes as they're really good and opaque and have a good lasting power mines been on 5 days ad for me that's really good.
My Last favourite is probably going to seem very strange. It is of course my e-cig. I started smoking when I was about 16 and have either not been able to or not really wanted to stop if I'm honest. I'd heard a bit about the e-cigs and know lots of people that use them.
I particularly liked the idea of still having that "smoker" status but having more pleasant flavour than an actual cig as well, I hate the taste of cigarettes and this just makes life so much easier and is so much cheaper than actual smoking, plus it allows me to have awesome flavours like double apple which tastes like apple sours my favourite tasting thing ever! 
Ok so that's everything again I hope you enjoyed this post. Thank you so much for reading this far I know its quite a long one so yea thanks for that.
Love you all

Fall beauty haul

During the past month I picked up a few beauty bits and bobs which I thought I would share with you all. 
I by no means needed a new make-up bag but I couldn't resist this super cute bambi make-up bag from primark for £3.
I also decided to try out some of the make-up revolution range and well I have to say I'm not disappointed with these 
First up was these eye shadows in Insomnia, Naive, illuminate, I remember and Hung up just £1.50 each. I really like these the colours are really nice and I'm in love with Insomnia its become one of my everyday eye shadows. 
 Next up I picked up some of these Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquers they're a liquid lipstick that dries matte and lasts fricking ages I love them.

I think these 3 in particular are going to be strong favourites for me this fall.
Next I picked up this brow gel from Technics in dark for £1.99, again I really like it. its got a really small wand so its ideal for getting close into your brows. 
I got this cute as little stippling brush from primark I thought it would be ideal for contouring, powdering under my eyes I think it will just be a good little brush to have and it was only £1.50
I actually found these Revlon parfumerie nail polishes in the pound-shop, so of course I had to grab them I love moonlit wood it's a beautiful purple with a silver shimmer to it and it smells amazing when its dried, I literally couldn't stop smelling my nail with this stuff on. Espresso on the other hand although its a really good black polish it smells like rotten meat or dog vomit (yes that specific) it's disgusting I found myself rubbing hand-cream into my nails just to try make them bearable. But these are pretty good polishes and I would pick up more even if they can smell like crap.

That's everything I wanted to include in this post. There were a couple of other bits as you can tell from the photo, but these are items I've coed about in my September favourites so if your interested in those you'll have to check out my favourites post.
Hope you've enjoyed this post, leave me a comment letting me know what you've been buying for fall and I will speak to you all again soon.

Fall Clothing Haul.

September is slowly coming to an end and Autumn is upon us, I have to say this is my favourite time of year. I am literally so excited for fall, Halloween and the colder coming months. I've recently picked up a few pieces for my autumn wardrobe to take me through the colder months, so I thought I would share with you a few of the key pieces that I've picked up recently.
The first place I've been heading towards is primark I love their cardigans as I pretty much live in a cardigan all year round and wanted some warmer ones while its not quite coat weather yet.

Primark Mohair Cardigan 
 I've seen so many people wearing mohair cardigans particularly in black I decided to pick this grey marl version it is literally the softest fricking thing I have ever worn, plus it really reminds me of the fur from ware-wolf mask, OK I know that seems weird but to me that makes it all the more cosy. I think I may have to get the black one as well its that cosy I'm going to get so much wear out of this I can tell. I cant remember exactly how much it was either £8 or £12 pounds as I took the tag off and put it straight on, its that soft dude!

 Pirmark Aztec print Bat wing style cardigan


This cardigan is more of  a heavy knit than the other cardigan and looks really nice on, I really like this aztec style I think it will look really nice with my style I wear alot of black and I think this will complement that and add a bit more dimension to any outfit.

I've been wearing skater dresses as standard recently, I thought I would pick up a couple more, cause, well, you can never have too many skater dresses right. I picked these 2 up from ebay and I'm really impressed they arrived supper quick and feel really good quality and are a really good fit.

I went for this 3/4 sleeve black and grey stripe one first of all as I thought it was really pretty and strips are always popular any time of year.  
Black Skater dress
 This is a short sleeve skater, I know short sleeves aren't very season appropriate but I get super warm and sometimes short sleeves are better for me as I wear cardigans all the time.

Ok so no haul from me would be complete without at least one pair of shoes and well I got 2.

Primark Cleated "Doc" Style Brogues
I have been obsessed with these shoes since I saw them in Kassia Poh's primark haul video. I wasn't going to get them as they were a little tight but I couldn't NOT get them. I love them so much. They do pinch my toes a little but I can work around that and for the rest of my feet they're actually quite comfy, I just have really odd shape feet. I think these will be really great for the colder months as the cleated soles will give so much more grip when its frosty and even snowy as I'm always so scared of falling over I dont think I'll be tumbling over as much in these.

Redtag Baseball pumps
I've been tooing and frowing about getting some white baseball pumps, I'm really glad I did though I can see me getting a whole lot of wear out of these I think their so versatile and go with everything.
Thats all the' clothing bits I've bits I've picked up recently for autumn/ fall what ever you want to call it. I hope you liked this post if you'd like to a fall beauty/ accessories haul let me know in the comments and I can get one up for you as I've bought a few new accessory bits recently.

Nothing but the tooth...

For about 2 weeks I've had the worse toothache so bad at one point I thought I was going to faint, yesterday I finally bit the bullet so to speak and went to the dentist, I fricking hate dentists I don't know why but I'm not a fan. They pulled my tooth and OMFG what a relief although it has still left me in pain.
So last night having taken enough painkillers to sink a small donkey... I couldn't sleep for shit which is so unlike me, I ended on getting up and having another coffee finally made to sleep at about half 1, a whole 3 and a half hours after my bedtime (yes I'm that cool I'm in bed for 9 on a Friday!). 
This morning I've waken up and I can definitely say any pain relief has worn off, I feel today shaping up to be a lazy day.I decided to utilise my time and decided I needed a change of scenery, hope you all like it, it took a lot longer than I hoped thanks to my little friend, yep chuck decided I was far to comfy and well this happened! 

I think I've done pretty well, I really like the look of blog now it looks more together, I feel like before it was a little mishmash. I like it! 
What do you guys think? 

Bourjois Rouge Edition Lip Colours

Hey-ho Peeps.

I mentioned this product in my Sleek Matte Me post, in that post I was unsure whether or not to buy the bourjois rouge edition as they were £8.99. I have to admit I couldn't resist and Superdrug had them on offer so I decided to pick the 2 had been particularly eyeing up.

I decided to pick up ole flamingo and nude-ist. Ole Flamingo is this beautiful bright pink it looks similar to the Sleek matte me Fanango Purple but is alot less blue toned, and Nude-ist is very much a your lips but better nude.Compared to the Matte me these are aot more balmy and are definatley more like lip glosses, but they do have a fair bit of staying power although I would say I prefer the wear of Sleeks lip cream.
Nude-ist
Ole Flamingo

As I said their very balmy and dont seem to set as well on the lips as the Sleek ones but I've given them all a fair trail as with my Sleek post I've tried the same thing with these so you can see how they wear and over how long.

Toodles.

Sleek matte me

Hey-ho peeps




I love a bold lip wether it's a purple or a red I think a statement lip colour looks fab especially when your eyes are shielded behind glasses. I've previously struggled though when it comes to finding a lip product that lasts more than 5 minutes and doesn't transfer off as soon as I have a not so cheeky fag. 
I've seen a lot about the new bourjois rouge edition velvet liquid lipsticks but at £8 in store I wasn't too keen to run out and by any just incase they weren't up to the challenge of staying put on a coffe guzzling smoker so when I saw sleeks similar version of liquid matte me  lip colours I thought I'd give it a whirl and I'm really glad I did. 

I opted for this bright pinky purple shade called fandango purple, it applys really nicely and despite what I've read I find that it goes on really smoothly and evenly. I love the colour I think it's a really great bright shade for summer and boy does it last I'd say I can get a good 3/4 hours out of this product without having to reapply.



 It can transfer a little if I've licked my lips or if I have anything to drink but saying that I'm super impressed with this product and will definitely be getting some more of these I may even try the bourjois ones or the make-up revolution version to compare if they can last any longer but either way this has to be my favourite lip product by far.
