Superdrug Bargins! |B. Haul and Swatch|

Hey guys!

I was planning on starting this post on a happy note, but I’ve had such a terrible day today. I feel like complete poop so I’m sat here on my sofa, wine gums and midget gems to my left and a spiced rum and lemonade to my right and Lee Evans on TV. I’ve just got to keep telling myself, “it’s just a bad day, not a bad life” and I’ll be just fine.

Over the weekend, I took a trip into Canterbury again with Kieron and we quickly popped into Superdrug. I wasn’t planning on buying anything in there but when I saw that the B. range was in clearance I just couldn’t resist!!

I brought more than what I’m showing in this haul bescause I have lost some of the products (crazy!!) so once I find them, I’ll post about them :).

First of all, I brought these awesome eye shadows. At first, I thought they were like a dust or pressed, but then I realised after swatching them, the texture is more like a paste (I cant think of the word for now, let me know in the comments below if you know what I mean). The shades I brought were a lovely coppery shade and a shade that looks almost gunmetal grey. I really think they compliment each other so they’ll be good to use with one another.

I also found that they were very pigmented. Like REALLY pigmented!! I didn’t have to put much on my fingertip to get the amount I did for the swatch, I was really impressed with this as it seems a little goes a long way.

Last but not least, the longevity. I didn’t wear these swatches for long, but when it came to taking it off, it took a lot! I used a Nivea Waterproof makeup wipe and it took a lot of effort to get it off!!

The best part? These eye shadows were 49p EACH!!!!

The next item I brought was this gorgeous lip gloss! unfortunately, I ran out of time when checking out my new purchases so I couldn’t swatch it but when I do, I’ll post it on Instagram so make sure you’re following me! You can do it here!

Back to the gloss… I’m really excited to try this colour out as it’s a gorgeous glittery peach shade and looks perfect for a summer look which I will be working on next 🙂 This gloss cost £1.99 which is amazing! I think I brought another but it’s with the missing make up, either that or I gave it to my mum and forgot 😛

E.L.F Review and Swatches

I feel like I havent posted in ages even though it’s only been a bit over a week! The reason is because I got a new job! It was my first week last week and I absolutely love it! I guess I’m going to have to find a routine so I can go to work, gym then blog as I seem to struggle doing all three at the moment!

Back to the blog 😛

E.L.F has finally come to the UK! I’m probably a little behind but as soon as I found out, I rushed out to my closest Superdrug and grabbed a few products. As you all know, I’m a huge fan of foundations so I only brought a foundation, primer and concealer.

 

The first product I picked up was the tone adjusting face primer. There was no tester on this and there were so many to choose from so I was literally going on my own instinct. When I got home to try it, I was pleasantly surprised with a gorgeous smoothing texture that makes my face feel so matte! This cost £9.00 which is roughly what I would pay and I have to say, you’re definitely getting your moneys worth!

Next Is the foundation and I went for the Foundation Serum. I wasn’t sure which to go with at first and had my heart set on this one even though it looked slightly too dark in the bottle (again no tester). This product cost £9 and I’m so happy I went ahead with it. I’t looked dark on the bottle, but it is the perfect shade for my skin tone. It feels very smoothing and like it says on the bottle, it’s a serum. I’d say it has light to medium coverage but could definitely be buildable!

Last up is the HD Lifting Concealer. I LOVE Concealers and I was really impressed with the formula of this one! The only thing I was disappointed with was the fact you had a choice of three shades which are fair, medium and dark and there were no testers. I went for fair and when I tried it on my skin at home it was slightly too dark, so I wouldn’t recommend it for building. It does make a great under eye concealer as it is slightly orange toned.

Overall I’m really pleased with my first E.L.F products and am definitely going back for more!

What’s your favourite E.L.F products and which would you recommend?

She Was Pretty |K-Drama Review|

**SPOILER ALERT**

Ok, I finished it. I finally finished she was pretty after three days of binge watching. At first I was sure I wouldn’t like it as there were so many things that annoyed me but as I got further into the series, I completely fell in love with it.

She Was Pretty is a 2015 South Korean television series starring Hwang Jung-eum, Park Seo-joon, Go Joon-hee, and Choi Si-won. It’s a romantic comedy about two old school friends who meet up again in the present after many years of not seeing each other. When they were younger Kim Hye-jin (Hwang Jung-eum) was a popular, pretty girl from a rich family who befriended Ji Sung-joon (Park Seo-joon) who was unattractive, over weight and shy. Sung-Joon moves to America with his father leaving Hye-Jin behind. After this, her fathers company goes bankrupt causing her to experience hardships. She also lost her beauty too.

Sung-Joon returns many years later wanting to meet Hye-Jin but is unable to recognise her, he has grown to be a very attractive young man and she grew to get frizzy hair and a skin condition which causes her cheeks to be red constantly. Hye-Jin feels ashamed due to this so hides as she doesn’t want to ruin his perception of her. He asks her best friend Ha-Ri (Go Joon-hee) to stand in for her as she is tall, elegant and beautiful.

Things begin to get complicated for Hye-Jin as she gets an internship at The Most magazine and who does the deputy chief editor happen to be? None other than Sung-Joon! He openly mistreats and belittles her publicly not knowing who she really was. During the series Ha-ri continues to meet with Sung-Joon and begins to develop feelings for him. During Hye-Jins time in the workplace she finds a good friend in Shin-hyuk (Siwon) who falls in love with her.

The ending I would say was kind of unpredictable. I was expecting Ha-Ri and Sung-Joon to be together and Hye-Jin and Shin-Hyuk to be together as they were so well suited and Shin-Hyuk was so nice toward Hye-Jin from the very start. He tells her shes pretty and looks after her, I really shipped this couple. As time goes on, Sung-Joon beings to develop feelings for Hye-Jin without knowing who she is and vice versa. He also finds out that Ha-Ri had been lying to him all the time and realises that the real Hye-Jin was in fact the Hye-Jin he was so cruel to at work.

At the start of the series, I really disliked Sung-Joon as he was so mean but as she showed his softer side to Hye-Jin I really started to like his character and wanted them to be together.

A lot takes place in the last few episodes of this drama. Shin-Hyuk confesses to Hye-Jin but she doesnt believe him. He also turns out to be the famous author Ten. You are led to believe that he is actually the company chairman’s son but that turns out to be Kim Poong-ho, another colleague in The Most magazine. Shin-Hyuk kept his identity a secret as he wanted to write but enjoy his life but gave up his identity to save the magazine.

Hye-Jin becomes an author and marries Sung-Joon (happy ending! YAY!) and Ha-Ri goes to college and gets a job at a hotel with her own skills as she led a comfortable life due to her rich father and wanted to see if she could get by on her own.

I absolutely loved this drama, like I said in my previous post about it (you can read it here), Hye-Jin was very annoying to begin with, she was screechy and never spoke properly but as time went on she mellowed out quite a bit and became a very likeable character.

My faveourite character was Shin-Hyuk as he was honest and lived for winding people up, I guess I can relate to him in a way! Most of his scenes were hilarious!!

I’d really recommend this drama if you’re looking for something funny and romantic. I absolutely loved it and am sad that it’s over.

I hope you enjoyed my review! Are there any dramas you’d recommend? Comment blow!

Lets Talk about Moisture |Tesco Body Gel Aloe Review|#5

Recently I posted a mini haul (you can read it here) and in this haul I purchased two bottles of Tesco Aloe Vera body gel as I was suffering with terrible sunburn.

I was so impressed with this product that I decided that I really wanted to review it and share it with you.

I’m not usually one to stick to regularly moisturising my body, I really feel like I should do it more often but it really does feel like a chore to me! Plus I usually have to wait ages for the moisturiser to dry before I can touch any furniture or put my clothes on! I never really seemed worth it.

I guess after burning the hell out of my skin and seeing how great this product is, I don’t mind moisturising now!

I’ll start with the price. I purchased this for £3 as all the Aloe Vera after suns were quite expensive and this one looked like it would help with my burns just as good as the rest. I also felt like I was getting more for my money as the bottle is quite big.

After taking it home I had a freezing cold shower and applied it to my sunburn. It left a nice cooling effect, didn’t feel like it was irritating my skin and dried so quickly, like almost instant!! I started using it regularly and my skin had never been better! It helped take away the dry peeling skin and helped make my skin feel incredibly hydrated.

I was using it 4-5 times a day for a solid 3 to 4 days and haven’t even used a quarter of the bottle yet!

I definitely will continue to use this product as I’m still yet to find a fault with it and if I’m honest I don’t think I will. It’s cheap, you get a lot for your money, it smells great and dries really quickly! I’d definitely recommend it!
