Top 5 Lip Products


1) MAC Lipstick
It would be a sin for me to put anything else here. Every single shade I've bought has been gorgeous! My current fave is Russian Red. So beautiful! 


2) Lush Lip Scrub
These work brilliantly to keep your lips smooth and soft, and they're made from sugar so they taste amazing too!


3) Silly Lips
I recently got sent the 3 lipbalms from the silly lips brand and they're my new favourite! Paired with the lush lip scrub, you have the perfect combination for beautiful lips that will never get chapped. 


4) 17 Liptint
A while ago I picked up the Just Bitten liptints in a stick and now I have one from 17 in pinkini and it's brilliant! I definitely recommend giving a couple lip tints a shot.



5) Mother Pucker LipGloss
It has that really satisfying sting of a plumper first off, and then it's got the most amazing name any makeup item has ever had which gives it points. It's about the only lipgloss I ever wear too so it had to make the list.

The Last Keeper - Book Post

A good friend of mine, Michelle Birbeck has just released her book 'The Last Keeper' for presale. You hear that?! BOOK!  I'm so proud of her for such an amazing achievement. I don't think I could ever do something that brilliant.

Because I'm so proud of her, I'd be over the moon if you could go and look up her book. Click here to pre-order, the site also contains a blurb of her book and you can like her book on facebook through that site too. She's a brilliant writer, and I am going to be gagging for a copy as soon as they're out....except I'm going to be lined up at a book store to buy it. 

I have read a very early version of it so I can tell you it's a lovely story to follow and you're going to be left with the worst bags under your eyes because you won't be able to sleep until it's finished. She's an evil lady with cliffhangers and keeping you guessing, you have been warned. The storyline itself is really inventive and original, I've never seen anything like it and I really think that it's going to grip people's imaginations. Think vampire fantasy books, with a cool new twist, called The Keepers, and Serenity is the last one! - hence, The Last Keeper, sorry for pointing out the obvious. It's up to her to help save humanity, so there's going to be a lot of tension with this read.
Please let me know if you check it out and tweet Michelle telling her what you think! We'd both love to hear it.

Mylikes - FAQ

This is essentially a follow up to my 'mylikes' video I posted not so long ago. I thought since I had a lot of questions there I'd address the top three questions that have been asked a lot about the site and how it works, especially how much money you make from it!

  1. Most asked question: Is it free?
    Yes, it's completely free. You don't make any deposits, or anything. I've been asked if you need money in your pay pal account for it to get paid, no you can literally not have a penny in it but as long as you have earned $2 from mylikes you will get paid on a Friday. If you have anything less than that, your balance will stay at what it is until it gets higher than $2, then it will all be put into your paypal.
  2. How much can you make?
    Well it all depends on the person, you can make anything from $0.10 to god knows how much, all of it depends on your views and the amount of people that click the sponsored links that you post. If you don't have many viewers, you probably won't have all that much money but as the first accumulates so will the latter.
  3. Do I have to make videos?
    NO you can also run a tumblr or a twitter account and you can still make sponsored posts on them. But unfortunately, if you run a blog on a different server - like blogger - Mylikes no longer support them. There was a fault in the FAQ about being able to request a code for your blog if it is on a different site but after emailing them to enquire I can guarantee, that is no longer true. As long as you have a twitter, you can still make money from mylikes though!
I hope that's cleared a few things up!

Room Tour?

Hi guys,
This is sort of a post to you rather than at you about something. I just wanted to ask if anyone would be interested in seeing a room tour video? They look so fun and I like watching them because I'm so nosy but I wanted to know your opinion! You can email me, tweet me, or comment below to let me know. If no one is particularly against it then I'll definitely do one.
But! I have one more problem, you've probably noticed I'm constantly in a different background so where would you like me to film my room tour? In the white room or pink room? I don't think either of them are particularly fantastic but you can let me know which you'd rather. The white is probably more interesting because I live there for more of my time and the storage is a lot more inventive than the pink room. :)

Anywho, like I said let me know and I'll shh now.

MAC Shop and Cook

I got an email from MAC recently about their new collection being launched in the UK. If you watch beauty youtubers like me you'll probably have already seen a few hauls on it and possibly even some reviews but because it's new to me and the rest of the Brits that visit my blog, I'm still making a post.

Skincare Update



Recently I posted a video reviewing my love for the St Ives scrub and I'm sure I mentioned something about my skin being bad or being worse than usual.

Anyway, as a sort of extension on that I thought I'd give a quick skin update and a run down of my daily/weekly products. I'm not going to be too thorough because I'd like to post a skincare video sometime in the near future. So here we go:
  • St Ives scrub, twice weekly
  • Clinique foaming Cleanser, twice daily
  • Neal's Yard Rose daily moisture
  • Avon rice & sake/ mud mask, once weekly
  • No 7 eye makeup remover
  • Generic Toner, once a week.
This has really got my skin back into good shape and I do still breakout and have blackheads etc, but who doesn't, I'm happy with how my skin looks when I go out so I don't mind. I'll do a more detailed video on this probably with demonstration.

Clinique Foaming Mousse vs No 7 Foaming Cleanser


I purchased the No7 gentle foaming cleanser months ago and really enjoyed it, it comes out of the bottle into your hand as a foam already. It smells really nice, and with citrus extracts it has a fruity sort of scent. It definitely is a very gentle wash and I don't feel as if it all that deeply cleans your skin. I definitely wouldn't be comfortable taking off my makeup with it either. It isn't extremely foaming and sort of fizzles out in your hand, but it lasts a long time and isn't all that expensive either.

VS


But then along came Clinique and the battle began. The first thing I noticed was that this did not come out as a foam but wasn't the usual consistency of a face wash either. It was almost a mousse that had been mixed around with some foam. But as you put it on your face it just instantly foams all over the place and really gets a good lather everywhere - unlike the No. 7 version. There's round 1. Next, the effect it leaves on my skin is much better, I can feel that there's been a deep clean and I could even take my makeup off with it when I'm out of wipes. Round 2. This is utter vanity but the Clinique packaging also looks a lot better. Round 3. It is more expensive but isn't as extortionate as I expected, it's £15 but I've barely made a dent in it from using it twice daily since Christmas. Round 4. It's got chamomile in it which is really soothing to the skin as well. Round 5. Do I really need any more reasons? I think we've hit knock out point here! 

Anyway, if you can wait that extra few weeks and get a few extra pounds then it's so much better than quickly getting the cheaper alternative and will last you longer too.

ELF Haul Video

Since I sort of half review everything in the video, I thought I'd elaborate for you here! Subscribe to my channel if you enjoyed and be sure to follow my blog too.





ELF brush cleaner
This has a very chemical smell tp it which is a bit annoying but the proof's in the pudding with brush cleaner and as I mention in the video, it's definitely very antibacterial and when you're using it a lot of colour comes out of the brush so this is definitely worth the money.

ELF HD powder
This powder is really finely milled, making it feel smooth on your skin and create a more flawless overall look.  It's a traditional HD powder, it's translucent, which means you have to be careful with quantities or you literally end up with a white sort of tint to your face. But I'm really not sure I agree with 'soft focus' mentioned on the packaging.

ELF Lock and Seal
I used this with a combination of lipsticks, testing formulas etc. It worked well but it's awkward to use if the product is not a pigment but does work well. I wore my lipstick from 12-6 with no touch ups before starting to fade, and I was eating and drinking in that period. That for me is a brilliant result and the price is ridiculously good as well so if you have been sort of sceptical about this - I was - just grab it!

ELF Cream Liner
I'd say that this is a lovely base, really nice creamy consistency but I couldn't imagine using it as a liner. I don't know if it's just the shade I got but it's far to creamy to be a liner and doesn't give the intense pigmentation needed for a liner. It's a good product but it doesn't do what it says it will in my opinion. Still, it's pretty and comes with a travel sized angled brush as well which is good, especially for the price.

ELF Lipstick
This is actually a really great formula. It's not drying and it's so so cheap. I wear this a lot dabbed lightly onto my lips to add a bit of colour rather than the tone straight from the bullet. I was surprised at how long wearing it was so thumbs up to this for sure. I'll have to try out a few of their other lip products.

17 BB Cream
Although I've reviewed everything else here, I already have a review of this up here so i'm not going to be repetitive and I'll just leave you to it.

Eyelashes
Apart from feeling like a drag act when you first put these on, I like these lashes. They're pretty funky and cool and I have to admit I like the spikey-ness (it is a word for now, shh). Plus they come with a glue that does actually work a lot better than I ever thought.

TZone Spot Zapper
This doesn't completely get rid of your spot and it stings like a little be-ach sometimes as well, it properly makes my eyes water and everything! But it does help to reduce the spot size and redness, especially if you use it over night and leave the spot well alone. I can say that it definitely dries out your skin if it's over used so you do have to be careful with that sometimes.


All in all, good haul and I'm happy with everything!

Mylikes Video

Well, aren't I useless. I completely forgot that I am supposed to be embedding my videos into my blog. whoopsie! I have this and another video so I'll do a post for that straight away too. Don't blame me for being out of it, if you're not on my twitter you wouldn't have seen but my mum broke her ankle this week so I've been rather busy lately.

Mini Collection Photos

Considering my new Makeup Collection video here, I thought I would make a post about my itsy bitsy collection in the other house, which you see me in more often. It is considerably smaller so I didn't want to make a big post or a video, so here's a few pictures:

Clarifying

I just want to make something perfectly clear to you all....

Friday, 16 March 2012

AHHHHHHH!

Some of you may know that I'm pretty much a neat freak and everything has to be organised in my life. Well, in correlation to that, my youtube has been so organised and I have all my ideas mapped out in a list of orders on my ipod. The same can be said for my blog, I HAD a list of what I roughly had planned for my blog, up to my 100th post.


It has randomly disappeared off my notes on my ipod for no particular reason and I can't find where it went or what happened for the life of me. So I'm rethinking everything and trying to come up with these great ideas again for you all, but I do feel a little bit lost without that list. It was brilliant for when I had 5 minutes to type up a blog I could look at my list and I wouldn't have to spend a long time trying to find inspiration for a post  was happy about you guys seeing. Yeah, safe to say I'm pisssseeeeed! I've just started the process of rewriting out this list but it's going to take me a while and I can't remember my ideas that I was so excited about. :(

Mini Superdrug Haul/Review


The first item I got from superdrug, I've actually already reviewed on my youtube channel and that's the St. Ives invigorating apricot scrub. So go and watch that by clicking here.

Next I bought a few MUA products because they were really cheap and I couldn't resist.  Firstly, a clear mascara that was only £1 that I'm using as a brow gel. I've never used brow gel before so I can't really comment a lot on the quality without knowing what others do but I like the effect of what it does and think my brows look a lot more uniform. And for £1 there's nothing I can really fault this product for. So if you're looking for something like this, get down to superdrug. I was surprised to find out it was cheaper than the elf version too!

The next product I got was actually a pair of eyelash curlers. I broke mine months ago and I've been meaning to pick some up for a while and found these, again for a pound so thought there couldn't have been much harm. It's actually crazy how much difference it makes without you realising. You look a lot more bright eyed and awake. I can't believe I haven't got them earlier. They're probably not going to last very long, especially when they're in my makeup bag which is in my bag getting smashed around. I'll get back to you if they break or if I notice a fault in them because they were so cheap, but I've had them for a week and a half/two weeks so I doubt it.

Then, finally I picked up two of the love hearts line nail polishes, I got I <3 U and U & I I'd seen a mention of them in gemsmaquillage's beauty round up video (here) and they looked like opaque pastels in the bottle. I picked up two of the ones that I have nothing else like, but from first impressions on my nail I <3 U was such a let down. It seemed really sheer and patchy, similarly to my Ted Baker light pink (reviewed here) but after a few attempts I realised the formula was not my problem at all, it was that the brush on my packet was faulty. I kind of got a good application but it was streaky because of my messed up brush. They're only £2 so I'm not really that mad about it. But U&I is a really pretty, unique colour that I have never had anything similar to before. I really like how it looks on my nails, and it takes a few layers to get it to a nice even finish but it is a bit streaky with the first coat. I'd definitely say go pick a couple of them up, there's another good few more than just the ones I've got as well as the lipbalms too.

Lacoste L!VE


Lacoste L!IVE has released a new project, discovering what they describe as 'unconventional talents' in New York in correlation to their new eyewear and clothing range, of the same name.

Weightloss/Fitness Tips

I seem to be one of those people who will always be on and off dieting. It's in my family, I swear. Everyone from my paternal side has incessantly dieted on and off for their entire lives, and unfortunately, I can't say I'm any different. However, I'm trying to make a change, I want to break this chain of yo-yo dieting and hold a steady weight without crash dieting or anything else extreme like that. One night, when I was having this epiphany I thought I'd have a little bit of a nose on App Store  because I was like someone must have had the same problem, maybe something will help. Oh god, that was a brilliant idea. I found myfitnesspal, a website which has created an app for apple and blackberry - not sure about android but I assume so. I can't tell you how brilliant this site and app are for people trying to lose weight.


If you've ever tried to keep a food diary and failed, this is the key tool for you. With it's easy to search databases for both food and exercise, it's so simple to keep track of what you eat and calories/carbs/fat/protein to make sure you're eating a healthy rounded diet. Now, with their new feature you can also make your diary public so people who are on your myfitnesspal friends list can see what you've been eating which will either leave you feeling proud to rub your nose in people's faces or...guilt trip you into eating better the next day. Either way, you just get more and more motivated, and if you stick to inputting everything, even bad days (I have to admit that's my downfall) you will quickly see a big difference because you are more aware of just how much you've eaten which does make you feel fuller. Personally, I don't care if it's purely psychological or not, if I don't want to snack when it hits 8pm then my diet is doing well. 


A point not related to the actual weight-loss side of things, myfitnesspal is an easy to use app an site, whichever you'd prefer to use. Unlike some apps on the app store, it doesn't crash all the time, and it doesn't update a million times a day with the most minor changes. It's not difficult to use at all, everything is easily found, and if you don't use the website you can still make changes to most things on your ipod still...most apps limit the amount of information you can change on them which is a pain in the arse most of the time. I really hope you give it a shot and click here to add my profile!


Another thing I'd like to recommend to go side by side to this program is the Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred DVD; which I log as circuit training by the way. It takes 20 minutes out of your day, and it's done in your house. There's most of your excuses to not work out already thrown out of the window, it's not hassle to get to the gym, it won't take hours out of your day and you only have to pay one of, which is half the price of a gym membership anyway.

New Layout and Donation Button

If you've ever been to my blog before, you'll know that this look is currently a lot different than previously so I wanted to address the change in layout as well as the addition to a donate button.


Now, firstly, let's talk about the button. To me that's the most important thing I want to clarify. Previously I've talked about wanting to add a domain name to my site but, unfortunately, I can't afford that right now and with my rejected adsense account, there's literally no way for me to afford it until at least June. But I still have my heart set on a domain name before that so I think this may be a solution. I'm not asking for a lot so please don't get angry and think  I'm expecting £20 at a time from you, literally, if you have a few pennies spare they'd be a perfect donation to just slowly accumulate. If you're anything like me you can't deal with your bank account not being a rounded number, and I can help with that with my donation button! Haha. Yeah, so please if you have literally spare change I'd appreciate a donation but don't think I'm asking for a lot. But here we go if you're interested:







Secondly, the layout change. It's a rather big difference and personally, I love it. I think it looks much better than it did before and suits me better than the old layout, but if you don't like it please comment letting me know because I'll either change it back or change it to something that's more of a middle ground, because well, this site's for you! 


That's about it, I hope everyone understands my reasoning and I'll speak to you soon with more blog posts that are back to usual.

17 BB Cream Review

I recently bought this BB cream, because I'm trying to wean myself off of wearing foundation, hoping I would be able to deal with wearing a lighter coverage product, and surprisingly I actually really love this product! I'm not a huge fan of 17 as a brand, but I think I might reconsider my perceptions because the quality of this product was brilliant. The packaging reads as the same advertising/beauty jargon as most face products but here's a little of it for you:

"17 BB cream is your 'no make-up make-up - a cult wonder product that gives your skin a complete natural flawless finish. Covers - conceals skin imperfections with full coverage and helps oil control. Enhances - moths an evens skin tone for a flawless finish. Protects - promotes healthy skin with spf protection.'


I completely disagree with the comment about full coverage, but that  being said I was expecting the same sheer coverage as a tinted moisturiser but this is a lot heavier than that. It is still lighter than a foundation though. The colour is good, and does match well to your skin as you blend it in. I'm still messing around with amounts and application techniques but every way I'm trying works really well and looks brilliant on my skin. It has a really natural pink tone to it while still fitting my yellow based skin. Even though I'm yellow-er skinned, some foundations just look literally yellow on me and not natural at all but this walks the line between different tones well and just seems to match itself to your skin brilliantly. It doesn't get affected in a bad way by powder either, some makeup refuses to let you set it without going cakey, no matter what way you apply it or the amount you use...this is not one of those products. I'm currently using it with the elf hd powder and it's really good. All in all, thumbs up for 17 and my skeptical look on them has been smashed.

Also, it has spf 25 and lasts all day, for £6.99? What more do you people want?!

Money Saving Tips Video!

This is not my usual type of video but was requested. I would say subscribe for more videos like this, but instead subscribe to my channel here for more videos on beauty and fashion.



11 is the Magic Number:Tag

 Here are the lovely rules:

- You must post these rules.
- Each person must post 11 things about themselves on their blog.
- Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
- You have to choose 11 people to tag and link them on the post.
- Go to their page and tell them you have linked him or her.
- No tag backs.
- No stuff in the tagging section about 'you are tagged if you are reading this'. You legitimately have to tag 11 people.


Here are the questions:

1.) What does the word "Beauty" mean to you? To me Beauty means that feeling when nothing can stop you and when you look at a women and just think wow, the inner confidence just makes her grab your attention.

2.) What are your favorite makeup & skincare products? My favourite skincare product is for sure scrubs, I love the St.Ives Apricot in Invigorating and also the Lush Dark Angels Scrub. My favourite makeup product is probably my MAC lipsticks.

3.) Favorite movie? I am addicted to movies and media student which just makes this question impossible to answer. At the moment it'd be a toss up between Reservoir Dogs or Juno. Random selection, I know....what, can I say? I have eclectic taste.

4.) Who do you love most in the world? My family. My mum, dad, stepmum, and maternal grandparents have done everything for me and they mean the world to me. I have to admit, I'm a daddy's girl.

5.) If you could meet any celebrity, who would it be and why?
I would love to meet Lady Gaga, just to talk to her and pick her brain because although everyone says she's insane, so am I and I'd love to just hear her talk and have a conversation with her.

6.) What's the best part about being "you"? Having a great support system around me and enabling myself to achieve the goals I set myself.

7.) What trait do you dislike most in others? Ignorance and anyone who is smug and arrogant about anything without any reason to justify it. It just makes me want to jump for the neck.

8.) What makes you feel glam? Red lipstick, always. And paired with hollywood waves, oh god, glamour overload.

9.) Favorite food? Probably traditional British food, and veg. I love peppers, lettuce, sweetcorn, peas. nom nom.

10.) Who influences you most in your field? Well, since I'm still in school I'm going to go with that and I'd probably say my media teacher who also helped me apply for university, just because I enjoy what she's talking about and a drama teacher who was only temporary. She came in while my usual teacher was having an operation. She was just a generally good person and it was really nice to see such a free thinking woman who wasn't a push over for students.

11.) If you could travel to any destination, where would you go? I would love to visit all the fashion capitals as well as India and Tokyo.


I'm pretty sure the holograms were tagged when I was, but I'm still going to tag them!

Sorry!

Hi! Just a really quick apology post, not beauty related for the moment sorry guys. This is me giving excuses and you an opportunity to slap me on the wrists, if you're not interested I completely understand, please feel free to look at my other posts which are beauty/fashion related! God knows there's enough of them already.

OPI polish review - Significant other colour

A while ago when I dyed my hair orange - long story - but the point is, I had to get a specific colour that you can only find in Sally's Beauty Supplies, so I took advantage of my trip and picked up some OPI polish because I'd always wanted to try it. I found a really unusual colour that was purple with green reflex throughout it and looked gorgeous in the bottle called Significant other colour. I never really used it that much, it just sort of got thrown in with all my other polish, but recently, I've been wearing this every day. It's really pretty, unusual, and looks different depending how the light hits it and how many coats you're wearing - which means you can be lazy with colour changes.

I am in love, and although it's really expensive in the UK to get OPI polish, I definitely want to try some more. It's a nice consistency that doesn't streak, although the finish of one coat is sheer. But in the case of this, I like it, one coat doesn't look at obvious as 2/3 but still catches the light really interestingly. It is just a really unique colour that catches everyone eye, even if you know what it is and you painted it a few hours ago.

If you have any suggestions of OPI polishes I have to try or any UK brands with dupes for OPI classic colours (Lincoln Park after Dark anyone?) then please comment below letting me know. Also, if you live in the US, I want to be nosy, how much does OPI cost you guys? I paid around the £10 mark which rounded up is $16. Which is pretty ridiculous considering a Chanel polish is roughly £13 I think.

Haircare

Now usually, I'm the one telling you what I do and giving you any tips I know but you may not. But, today I'm sort of switching it up a bit. I want to ask for your tips and advice about haircare!
You would have been able to see if you have watched any of my videos, my hair is frazzled. The bottom is a different colour and it's filled with split ends. I stripped my hair just over a year ago and it's not been the same since. It's dead and dry and every time I get it cut, it doesn't feel in any better condition and I just feel horrible because they take off at least 3/4 inches every time. Which just knocks my confidence. :(
So, I was wondering if any of you have either had or have bleached hair and how you maintain it to a good condition. I'd really appreciate hearing your tips and sort of turning the tables on me to get advice instead of dishing it out! I don't often use heat on my hair and try to avoid it as much as i can, but i do blow dry my hair because if i don't, i have to use twice the heat the next day to control it from the frizz - which I also never had before I stripped my hair.

Favourite Makeup Trends

Over the last few years there's been a huge fluxuation on trends in makeup. Unlike times like the 80's etc, where one trend stuck for an era, there are makeup trends through different seasons.  With makeup becoming more widely available and cheaper to everyone, this is not likely to change anytime soon, if anything makeup trends will become as influential as fashion trends. My favourite makeup trend of the moment has been spearheaded by figures like Lana Del Rey and even Adele, it's actually a retro look reminiscent of the 40's.


I love the cut crease look, and personally pair it with a red lip. It's such a glamorous look that just makes me feel amazing as soon as it's on. I feel like a living Jessica Rabbit and want to strut around the place. It can also be toned down for more of a wearable daytime look, which is favoured by Adele. There's something oddly modern about this vintage look, I think anyone who wears it looks like they've jumped straight out of tumblr or lookbook. It feels really cool and sophisticated without verging on 'mature', I can't think of the right word to describe the aura I feel this look gives off but it's like the 'it' factor. I think it's gorgeous, and as the smokey eye was never really for me, I was ecsatic when this trend rolled around and it's not acceptable to walk around looking like a femme fatale.


But I do admit, some of my admiration is probably a factor of my odd obsession with the 50's and icons like Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn who I could picture all wearing this makeup if they were in this era rather than their own.


What's your favourite makeup trend of the moment? Or are you refusing to be a slave to trend and sticking to what suits you? Please comment below letting me know! I'd love to hear your different views.

Beautylish

As i posted about here, I recently created a beautylish account and I love it! Such a good website, fun ways to review products you have. Especially if you're not on youtube but want to start getting involved in that type of thing.

It takes like minutes to review things and gets you sort of into practise of how reviewing should sound etc. You can review products and specific shades as well as uploading videos -either through connecting from youtube or uploading direct - and upload photos. You can post tutorials too, you have your own profile page with comments section and there's even a forum.

Safe to say, the site has a lot going on but you can't deny that it's in a good way. the layout isn't cramped but also doesn't look empty. Apparantly beautylish is a great way to make friends in the beauty community but I can't say I've used that side of it a lot. I'm still discovering people on twitter all the time! (yes, you hologram girls). The entire concept behind the site feels genius and I love it.

Anyway I really hope you give this site a shot! Comment below with your usernames and I'll follow you! :)
