MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation and Fix+

When I went to get my Back 2 Mac lipsticks I was also on a mission to get a new foundation. 

For the longest time I used MAC Studio Fix Fluid, but that was not the right foundation for my skin type and I always found it to be too heavy. I knew I needed to change it but it was sheer laziness, me not doing my makeup as much, wanting to use up what I'd paid for and the fact that I don't live close to a MAC store that stopped me from updating this any sooner. Yeah excuses excuses, but I finally did it. After doing some research I knew what I wanted to try next, Studio Sculpt. I've only ever heard good things about this foundation and the concealer everyone was obsessed with before it was discontinued.

BTW: Never keep using a product just because you've paid for it. If it doesn't work get rid f it, sell it on or give it to family or friends who can benefit from it. Doing this is also a good way to have a clear out of your makeup.

Gothic Makeup (Rimmel Mini Haul)

Rimmel London, makeup, glam eyes quad, stay glossy lipgloss
I've shared with you guys previously the beauty bargains you can get in Poundland. I know not the most glamorous or high-end of places, but they do sell known beauty/makeup brands for £1. And those are the kinds of bargains I am here for. This time round I got some makeup bits form Rimmel and some false eyelashes (which were the kind of quality you'd expect for £1).

BACK 2 MAC Lipstick Haul

MAC, MAC Cosmetics, Lipstick Haul, Back 2 MAC,
For those of you who do not know this, if you return 6 empties to a MAC counter or online you get a free lipstick. I think that is pretty frickin sweet considering that their lipsticks retail at £15.50.

So I headed to MAC in Stratford Westfield, with my empties in tow. I had such a lovely girl at MAC (and I wish I could remember her name) helping me choose the my lipsticks. If you've been to a MAC store or counter you know how daunting it can be as they have a vast selection of colours/finishes. I kind of had an idea of what I wanted before I went in, it was just finding the perfect shades for me.

Mental Health Awareness Week - My Battle With Depression

I said in a post back in February that I wanted to start including some “real life” non beauty related posts that could be of use to some people, I've sat down and thought long and hard about what I wanted to share with you guys, and from the title you know what I will be talking about.

Urban Decay cherry popped. 

I finally joined the long list of Bloggers, Youtubers and Beauty/Makeup lovers out there, who are obsessed with the Naked palettes from Urban Decay, by purchasing the Naked 3 palette. My first purchase from Urban Decay has been a good one indeed. 

The palette is full of Rose-hued neutrals, and they are absolutely gorgeous. It has a range of finishes from mattes, pearls and metallics. Along with the palette I also purchased the longtime beauty fave, Primer Potion.

Me and my besties love an excuse to go out to dinner. This time was to celebrate my best friends birthday. The restaurant of choice...Zizzi Ristorante. Italian food is my favourite, I mean pizza and pasta, you can't lose.
