I got my first @topshop lipstick! πŸ’„
To tell the truth, when I found them in @tkmaxx for Β£2.99, how could I say no?! I was stood there googling swatches and clutching products to my chest like some kind of makeup-obsessed Gollum. πŸ™Š
Anyway I picked the shade Mink, which looks pretty peachy here, but actually pulls more of a browny-nude on me. I don't usually like browns on me but I actually really like this one - and the formula? Good god, I love the formula. It's not quite glossy, but it's not what I would call satin either - it's just really moisturising and buttery, but doesn't bleed everywhere either.
I'm personally totally over the matte lip (sacrilege I know) so I think I'll be adding more of this range to my collection πŸ˜‰
Have you tried anything from the Topshop beauty line?

I was walking through my local shopping centre thinking to myself, "I really need a new mascara, mine is kinda dry" when I passed @kikomilano and saw a massive sign that read "ALL MASCARAS Β£3.90!"
Gotta be a sign right? I figured I better not anger whatever higher power had set this up and go in a buy mascara right away 😊
All mascaras (and mascara related products like lash primer) really were Β£3.90 - that's between 30-50% off, depending on which one you choose. What a bargain! Obviously I had to buy three. πŸ’³
I prefer my lashes long, fluffy and wispy, so I picked out the Longeyes + Active Mascara. It's meant to help condition your lashes to help them grow longer! It does help lengthen too - I used it today for the first time and I love the brush ❀
I also have a problem with a lot of mascaras smudging on me so also I got the Unforgettable Waterproof Mascara.
Lastly, I've been looking for burgundy mascara for what feels like FOREVER so imagine my excitement when I spotted some 😍 the Smart Colour Mascara comes in several shades besides this and I can't wait to use it! πŸ˜€
Have you tried anything from Kiko? ❀

Monday #FOTD πŸ’„
I was rocking a one-shadow look today using The Abbey from @brijacosmetics - it's the perfect mustard for a grungy, lived in eye look πŸ‘Œ
Also this photo took a solid 10 minutes of balancing... #bloggerproblems πŸ˜‚

I'm a little bit obsessed with the packaging on this @forestandshoreltd Hallelujah Hair Oil ❀ It comes in a glass bottle, with a glass pipette, with a beautiful minimalist label, and the box has a gorgeous botanical design. It suits the all-natural, organic theme of the product perfectly.
The oil itself is chock full of a blend of wonderful natural oils, including Olive, Sesame, Coconut, Arnica, Rosemary and Lavender. I love using oils in my hair - it helps to make it shiny AF and keep those pesky split ends at bay.
I've used this a couple of times now and I really like it! There's a strong olive oil scent, but it's not offensive and it doesn't linger upon application. I really appreciate how this product is so natural and organic too 🌿 I'm looking forward to using it further and seeing how it affects my hair πŸ’‡

SWATCHED: @bhcosmetics Marble Collection - Warm Stone Palette πŸ’•
Using the @swatchperfectuk 12 Pan Bricks Stencil ✏
Some palettes seem very uninspiring to me in the pan, and unfortunately this is one of them. Swatched out like this though? Different story! I can see four very distinct quads straight away, which would create four very different looks. There's matte transition and crease shades, glam smokey shades for the outer corners, and even some beautiful shimmery duochrome shadows.
This palette really has everything you need for a multitude of looks. I need to dig it out more!

When @superdrugloves has 3 for 2 across all makeup (AND triple points!) It would be rude NOT to stock up on foundation! πŸ’³
I've been obsessed with the @revlon_uk Colorstay in 180 Sand Beige (literally - I haven't used anything else for ages) so I grabbed another bottle seeing as mine is almost empty. After testing what seemed like every foundation in the store, I settled on trying the @revlon_uk Photoready Airbrush Effect in 001 Ivory and the @goshcopenhagenuk Foundation Plus+ Cover + Conceal in 004.
The funniest thing about these foundations to me is that they're all 30ml, but look completely different sizes πŸ˜‚
Just FYI, the 3 for 2 runs until the 19th September 😊

This 14-pan circle stencil is part of my launch line at @swatchperfectuk ❀ It makes seriously light work of swatching the beautiful @anastasiabeverlyhills Modern Renaissance 😱
πŸ’‘ One of the reasons I came up with the idea for Swatch Perfect in the first place was really wanting something to help me do justice to my palette collection πŸ˜‚ When I was designing stencils, I really kept in mind what they'd be used for - so I've created designs perfect for a whole bunch of the most popular palettes. I've got over 50 products to share with you initially, with SO many more to come...
God I'm so excited! If you're a swatch junkie like me, be sure to go follow @swatchperfectuk for news of the launch - it's THIS MONTH! We also have Facebook and Twitter if you'd like to follow us there 😘

πŸ”₯ Currently melting - @ferrari_lane1981 Jade Orchid & Lotus Blossom 🌸
I've tried almost all my Ferrari Lane melts now, and they've all had really strong scents with great throw. This is no exception - a deep-bodied, fragrant floral that reminds me of expensive perfume mixed with expensive floral bouquets. It's bold, but not overpowering - the perfect balance ❀ Even my usually nose-blind boyfriend commented on how great the scent was! πŸ‘ƒ
Out of all the indie wax brands I've tried so far, Ferrari Lane is one of the best. Her melts are consistent, have good throw, and stay fragrant for a long time after pouring. I've had these for several months now and they're still super strong! They work well in both electric and tea light warmers too. She has lots in stock right now - including these - go check out her website, if you're a fan of great smelling wax you won't regret it ❀
🌟 These melts were sent to me in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own 😊

Just some sexy macro shots of a pigment I bought off AliExpress for £2 😍 Swipe for a swatch ➑
What do you think? Pretty isn't it? I always go for this type of colour ❀
I think it's a pretty good dupe for MAC's Rose pigment. Not that I've tried that πŸ˜‚

Current Haircare Routine πŸ’‡
Do you guys know I have super long hair? I've been growing it since around 2009. I also have an unusually short fringe. I don't use a ton of hair products, but these are what are in my arsenal right now πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡
πŸ’« @schwarzkopfpro Essence Ultime Illuminating Colour Oil ➑ I always use hair oil on the lengths and ends of my hair after I wash it - this one sinks in quickly and doesn't leave my hair greasy. I've been project panning it and it's almost gone!
πŸ’« @vo5 Nourish My Shine Bedazzling Oil Heat Protector ➑ I mostly use heat protectant to re-dampen my fringe so I can blow dry it. This isn't great for that - it's got too much oil in it, so makes my freshly washed hair look all greasy again 😭 it's good for injecting shine into dry or lacklustre hair though.
πŸ’« @got2buk Fresh It Up Dry Shampoo ➑ I get through A LOT of dry shampoo thanks to that short ass fringe! I've tried loads - and I really like this one. It does a fab job of freshening up my hair and getting rid of the oils, without making it too rough or dry.
πŸ’« @toniandguyworld Casual Flexible Hold Hairspray ➑ It's always windy here in the UK (and I mostly travel by peasant wagon and on foot) so copious amounts of hairspray is required to maintain this 'do. I'm enjoying this one as it holds well and doesn't get crispy πŸ‘
I'm also obsessed with these spiral hairbands - why didn't I try them before?!
