Today I bought the Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub and it is literally my new favorite product. It genuinely smells and tastes exactly like bubblegum. Its sort of like a salt scrub except its made from caster sugar and organic jojoba oil. It tastes so good I have to stop myself from using it every five minutes! This product is hand made from only five ingredients including the sugar and oil which is amazing as there are no harmful chemicals which means its extremely healthy for your lips, especially as it has plant oil in it as oil isn't something that people tend to just rub on their lips. 
This product costs £5.50 and I would say it is definitely worth it. It removes the dead skin form your lips to make them smooth, soft and great for applying lipstick onto. The tub is quite small but has a lot of scrub pressed into it.

I really love my new suede leather boots by Wolf and York, they're perfect for wearing everyday throughout winter and spring and they're really comfy too. They match pretty much any outfit and I'm so happy with them as usually I am reluctant to buy shoes online.

I bought them from They were on sale from £84.99 to £42 which I think is an amazing price for high quality suede leather! 



So tonight I was going out for a meal with my friends so I thought I'd share my basic evening makeup routine. I wear a bit more makeup than I would during the day but not as much as I would wear to a party or bigger event. 

The products I used tonight were:
  • Soap and Glory sugar crush body butter cream 
  • Mac Prep+Prime Beauty Balm (light)
  • Mac Mineralize moisture foundation  (NC 20)
  • Milani Baked Blush (05)
  • Rimmel London natural waterproof bronzer 
  • Rimmel London Stay Matte transparent pressed powder 
  • Soap and Glory Archery brow tint and precision shaping pencil (love is blonde)
  • Soap and Glory thick and fast mascara 
  • Bourjois Paris Smoky effect ultra black eyeliner 
  • P.S. Love... 8 shade night eyeshadow palette 
  • Eylure powder brush
  • Real Techniques Miracle complexion sponge 
  • Seventeen blusher brush 
  • Soap and Glory sexy mother pucker lip lacquer (charm offensive)

So today was pay day so I thought I'd treat myself to a MAC Primer that I've been thinking about for a while now. Its actually made a big difference to the appearance of my foundation and its duration time. As usual I had a chat with a beautician in MAC because I like to be sure that I'm getting the best product for my skin, especially when they are as pricey as MAC.
As I have quite dry skin and I use the Mineralize Mac foundation that I reviewed earlier I was advised to go for the Mac Prep + Prime Beauty Balm (BB). Its £24 and definitely worth it.  (it comes with a sponge inside)
I went for one shade lighter than my Mac foundation so that I could wear it with any of my foundations without worrying about it affecting the colour. It also works great as a concealer for under the eyes.
However I do have some cheaper alternatives which also work great to share with you.

These are my two favourite MAC Lip liners, Hip 'n' Happy and Nice 'n' Spicy. 
I always draw ever so slightly above my lip line then fill in the rest of my lips. The great thing about lip liner is that it can be worn as lipstick and gives a lot more precision that is very difficult to achieve with just lipstick. Hip n Happy is a much lighter pink whereas Nice n Spicy is a brownish red much like Kylie Jenner's signature shade.


So I am sure that most of you will have heard of the Fiber Lash mascara that so many people have been going crazy about, well I decided to give it a go. It was quite pricey at £23 and for that price it did not work as well as I had hoped.
First of all it makes your lashes very clumpy whereas I prefer mine to stay individual and long. Secondly the fibers all fall onto my cheeks whilst applying them and throughout the day which was annoying as they are so tiny and difficult to get off without ruining your makeup.
