Affordable Gel Eye Liner!

So I'd been wanting to try a gel eye liner for a while, but hadn't gotten around to picking one up. I'd heard great things about gel liners and after trying my friend's Stila Smudgepot last week I decided I had to get one! So I went shopping for a Smudgepot, but my friend suggested I try the Maybelline Lasting Drama gel eye liner. It was £5 cheaper than the Stila liner so I picked it up.

I have to say I am very impressed with this gel eye liner! It is just as good as the Stila Smudgepots and a lot cheaper! It also came with a brush which was a major bonus as I didn't have to spend more money on a liner brush! I got mine in the colour black and it is very pigmented which I am really happy about.

It is super easy to apply (thanks to the brush it came with) and it lasts all day! It doesn't smudge or flake, just stays put right where you left it! The below photo was taken after 7hours of wear!

Overall I am very happy with this eye liner! If you would like to see a more in-depth review of this product you can check out my video below :)

My First OPI Nail Polish!

OPI is probably the most raved about nail polish brand and obviously I wanted to try it. However, for the most part, it only retails in the US which was a major disappointment for me as I live in the UK! I could order online but due to high shipping costs from the states it just didn't seem worth it. OPI is pretty expensive as it is and adding shipping on top of that was a no go!

So I thought that was the end of that and I would never be able to own any OPI polishes, without paying silly prices. But nooo no no yesterday my friend told me that a shop in our city sold OPI! Obviously I was shocked and amazed! I had to go there and pick one up!

So I got to the store and sure enough they did sell OPI (and China Glaze too, which I didn't think was sold here). The range wasn't massive, none of the newer collections. But still a lot to choose from. So I took my time deciding which colour to get and finally settled on Sweet Heart. It's a very pale pink, almost white. A colour I've been interested in obtaining for a while.

I absolutely love it and plan to purchase many more OPI polishes in the future!

My First Ever Glossy Box!

Hey guys!

So I got home form work today and waiting for me was my highly anticipated Glossy Box! If you don't know what Glossy Box is you can check out there website for more details here. In a nutshell it's a monthly subscription website where each month you're sent 5 high end luxury samples, and sometimes one is a full size product! I came across this website through searching for a UK version of Birch Box which is only available in the US and essentially the same as Glossy Box. Glossy Box is a great and affordable way to try out lots of high end products and if you like the products you can purchase full size ones from the product websites which are included in the box.

So go check it out! I'm super happy with mine! And if you want to see what I got then check out the video below! :)

Juicy Couture!

Hey guys!

Just a quick update as I'm super excited for what just arrived in the post! A few days ago I ordered a gorgeous Juicy Couture bracelet off eBay and it just arrived! I got it off eBay as I couldn't find it sold anywhere else online. Although I know in the US it is/was sold in Nordstrom. I first saw this bracelet in a YouTube video by FleurDeForce where she did a swap with MissGlamorazzi and this was one of the items sent to her by MissGlamorazzi. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it and knew I had to have it. So I searched and finally came across it on eBay and once I had enough money I bought it! It comes in lots of different colours, but I got mine in black as it will go with everything. It also came in a really cute pink pouch (pictured below) which I loved! If you want to purchase one for yourself on eBay just search "Juicy Couture multi strand charm bracelet" and it should pop up. I love it and I hope you do do! :D

Sparkly Autumn Nails!

Hey everyone!

Summer is sadly over (not that it ever really began here in the UK) and autumn is here! So I decided to go with the season and do a really cute autumn inspired nail tutorial. With autumn comes all the deep reds and purples so this is a nail look using both of these colours! Check out my video below to see how you can create this look yourself! :)

Hey guys!

So for anyone who hasn't heard about e.l.f. go check it out here. There is also a US version here. Basically it's a website selling great makeup for really really cheap! I was shocked at how cheap everything is. Most things are £1.50!

Anyway, I decided to buy a bunch of stuff from there today. I got 18 products for only £35 and it's free shipping over £30! Absolute bargain! I couldn't believe how many products I could get for so little money! And it's not just single products, like one eyeshadow, that are super cheap! I got an eyeshadow palette for only £3.50! Amazing!

So I'm super excited for my package to arrive in the mail within the next few days hopefully! A haul video will be done on everything I got and that will go up on my YouTube beauty channel here. So stay tuned for that!

New Blog and YouTube Channel!

Hey everyone!

Today is a big day for me as I have just created my YouTube beauty channel! I've been wanting to start making videos for a couple of months now as I've become more and more obsessed with the beauty community on YouTube. So today was the day! Channel created! First video filmed, edited and uploaded! And now the creation of my blog! I am super excited about all of this!

So if you're interested in makeup, fashion, hair, really anything girlie then go check out my YouTube channel here. I'm hoping to upload a couple of videos every week. Though with working full-time it may be hard to find time, but I'm really going to try! :D

Thanks for stopping by!
