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 😛

I hope you enjoyed this post! I find I’ve been doing a lot more blogs recently so I’m hoping to change it up by working on tutorials as I’ve finally got my new phone so I can take good quality pictures 🙂

Soft Smoky Prom Make up

Hey guys, welcome to my blog!

Today I have another make up post for you! Now this look doesn’t have to be used only for prom, it’s quite a wearable look and can really be worn for any occasion.

The beautiful model/prom goer is my younger sister Emily (Emmimori) and I was honoured when she passed the chance to have a makeup artist and hair dressed hired to do her hair and make up, but asked me instead! So I did my best and I think she looked absolutely beautiful.

I wanted to do a softer look as her dress was quite bright and I didn’t want to make it too much or take anything away from the dress so I kept it simple but elegant.

Here are the cosmetics I used for the make up look:

Face:

NYX Studio Perfect Photo Loving Primer

Kiko Skin Tone Foundation

Seventeen 18 hour concealer

Seventeen phwoar paint

Rimmel Loose Powder

Sleek  Contour Palette (blush included)

NYX Illuminator (ritualistic)

Eyes:

W7 In the Buff Palette

Barry M Eye Shine shadow and glaze Palette

Bourjois Liner Feutre (in black)

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Curve Alert Mascara (in black)

Rimmel Wake me up Waterproof Mascara (in black)

Soap and Glory Archery Brow

Lips:

Clinique Colour Pop (in beige pop)

I kept the make up very minimal and as both of the palettes don’t name their shades, if you want to know what shades I used comment below and I will take photos for you all 🙂

NYC Individual Eyes Swatch

This is my first swatch post and I thought it was going to be really difficult to do for some reason. I guess I was just doubting myself too much! NEVER DOUBT YOURSELF GUYS!!!

I brought this palette a few days ago in the shade Vampiress as I’m kinda becoming obsessed with the dark look (due to having the skin tone ‘paper white’ I can pull them off) and I decided to wear the shadows today and I can say that I’m very impressed! Here is the look I created:

I was really pleased with the outcome and colours have lasted all day! They’re not transferable either (I accidentally brushed my arm with the swatches on my shirt just now and they didn’t smudge!). They’re very pigmented and you don’t need much product on the brush. One brush load covered both eyes when doing the crease.

Flat Angle

 

Here are the swatches on my lovely arm ;P.

 

Colour Swatch

I’m really pleased with this product and I can see myself using it a lot more in the future!
