Empties #2

Hello guys!
I've had this post sitting in drafts for AGGEESS!

Today I am here with an empties post, I have finished quite a few products recently which is unlike me.


First up, I have finished up the no 7 cleansing water. This was alright, it was a decent cleanser and it did the job but I don't think I would specifically go out and buy this. 
I then finished the Boots simply sensitive toner which I actually quite liked, I think this is about £1 so is super duper cheap and it did an effective job, I actually quite liked it. 
And then finally I finished up this moisturiser (well my mum did).  She likes this moisturiser and has used it up this twice. 


For body care I finished the original source shower gel in vanilla and raspberry. Can I just say that this smells amazing! It smells of strawberry milkshake,  mmmm, mmmm, it smells gooood!! I would repurchase for the scent alone. 
I then finished the Taylor Swift Wonderstruck body lotion. This is scented exactly like the perfume, it is slightly over powering, but it was a decent body lotion. 
Next I finished the Boots natural mango and papya body lotion, again this smells really good. It's actually a very good body lotion and I'm tempted to try more scents but once I've finished the myriad of other body lotions. 
And finally, I finished the body shop chocolate body butter, yes chocolate! This seriously smelt so good I cannot describe - if you're ever in a body shop please just smell this! It's seriously delicious!!


And finally, I finished a dry shampoo from girlz only. This is quite a good dry shampoo for me, is stops my hair looking greasy and makes me get another day out of my horrible lack lustre hair. 
And  lastly, I finished the Super drug own brand flirty body spray.  This is my favourite scent of body spray EVER! I will continue to repurchase,  they have a variety of different scents and are less than £1!


NEW BLOGGING SCHEDULE

Hi guys! 

Just a super quick post to let you know that I'm changing when I'm posting, this won't be stuck to completely, but I'm going to try and stick with it as best I can!

:)



Best of 2013!!

Hey guys!
This post is a bit late. But, it's here anyway. So I've split it up into different categories, makeup, skincare, hair and body and lastly lip balms. Yes that's right I have so many lip balms that they have their own category. Lip balm obsessive, me? No?


First category is makeup, I have loved a few things this past here. The first thing is the MUA Undressed Palette, this just creates so many lovely looks, it's so cheap but they are really good quality. I love it!
Next is the Natural Collection blush in Pink Cloud, this is really cheap, it's pigmented but not overly so that you end up looking like a clown. 
My Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation is something that I have loved since summer. It's a really good colour match for my skin. Keeps me looking matte all day and I can't recommend it enough.
My favourite mascara has been the Soap&Glory thick and fast mascara. I only got it for Christmas but even in the last 6 days of 2013 I tried it and loved it!! A favourite for sure!
My coveted Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. This is just amazing - it covers a multitude of sins and it's just holy grail. 
And lastly I have the Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch, this is also in the lip balm category but as it's tinted, I also put it in the makeup category. This smells really good, it leaves a nice pink tint and it's just an essential. 


Now for fragrance, I've loved a few things again. I've really loved the Body Shop body mists. I have the Strawberry one and my mum has the coconut one. They smell really nice, last a long time and they're quite cheap. The next fragrance is the Superdrug own brand body sprays. I have them in flirty and sugar. OMG, these smell so good and they're under £1! Amazing! And the last fragrance thing is Taylor Swift Wonderstruck (currently on offer). This smells amazing!! I love it, it's kind of sweet and sour at the same time. 


For bodycare, I have loved the Body Shop body butters. I have 2 scents, satsuma and mango. They smell really good and are extremely moisturising. Strangely, I have really liked the Dove deodorant, it was my first ever deodorant, it smells so fresh and uplifting. I love the Soap&Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash, it smells really sweet, yet zingy. It's really good, it's lasted me for nearly a year now and I used it everyday. And lastly I have really liked the Osis Big Dust powder. You put it in your hair and it instantly adds loads of volume to your hair. 

For skincare I have really liked the Body Shop seaweed mattifying day cream. It moisturises my skin well yet stops me getting too oily in the day! It's really good, I'm on my second pot. I have loved 2 spot treatments, firstly is the Freederm Fast Track gel, this dries up your spot and helps to get rid of it quicker than usual, it has chemicals in it so if you prefer natural things then this isn't for you. I have also loved the Anatomicals Spot Treatment, this is more natural and lighter so I tend to use this in the day. And finally, I have loved the Soap and Glory Peaches and Clean Cleanser (on offer). This smells so good! It makes my skin feel so smooth, but it doesn't leave it feeling really tight. 

And lastly, lipbalms. I have a slight obsession with lip balms. It's a problem... I have loved the Nivea Lip Butters in Caramel Cream and Raspberry Rose, they both smell really good. They last for ages and are super moisturising, they're quite thick so are good for intense moisture. I have also really liked the Body Shop Born Lippy Watermelon Lip balm, this smells so good. It leaves a nice glossy finish and is quite light. And finally I have the Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch and Hydrate. I love these, they are great to just quickly slick on in the day, they hydrate, smell amazing and the packaging is just so cute!

Phew, so that is it for my 2013 favourites, I hope you enjoyed this post! What were your favourites of 2013?

What Have I won? #2

Another what have I won! Again from Miss Sporty, I promise I'm not 'in with them' if that makes sense! This time I won a years supply of makeup, which let me tell you is a lot of makeup for 1 teenager!

Imagine how I felt when this landed on my door step! Trust me, it's bigger than it looks - like the tardis ;) 


So, inside were 2 makeup bags stuffed to the brim of makeup and a very fetching t-shirt!

So these are the nail varnishes! I will update later on when I have all the shade names!

The eye stuff...

Base...

Mascaras... 

Lip products...

And lastly blush and bronzer!


So that is what I won from Miss Sporty, I'm incredibly grateful! Have you won anything recently??


My Beauty Compare

 Hi guys!

Hope you're all well, today I'm going to tell you about this new site which I love! It's called MyBeautyCompare and I love the concept of it. It is the world's first personalised recommendation site on earth!


When you first join the site you create your own little beauty profile where you answer questions, such as skin type, hair colour, etc. Then when you click on certain subheadings it will tell you products that would work for you - it's such a cool idea and I really like it! 

The site also has a review section so that you or other people can review products, as the site is quite new there isn't a lot of reviews yet, but, I'm sure once it gets going there will more reviews. 

As well the review section the website also has a blog and forum. The blog is really informative and you can also search from tags. So for example you're looking for a volumising mascara you can click on that tag and it will take you to all posts with the label of a volumising mascara. The forum is also really good as you can ask any questions and then someone will answer them. All of your beauty questions will be gone. 

In the future, I would love to see an app but as it's early days so I can forgive them :)

The site is really easy to work your way around and I really like it - I'm sure I'll be spending lots of time on it in 2014! 


I'd definitely recommend you check it out!
