Liebster Award ❤️


was kindly nominated by Natalie to do the Liebster Award. The Liebster Award is to promote and help grow blogs. I will answer the questions Natalie has given and I will then tag and leave some questions for a few blogs! 

What are your favourite blog posts to read? 
My favourite blog posts to read are probably FOTD's, tags and hauls.

One makeup brand you love?
I love Mac, their products are just amazing and I love them a lot. 

Would you rather have 10,000 kittens or 1 unicorn? 
10,000 kittens! I am such a cat lady, so I would definitely prefer them.

Favourite album on iTunes? 
I don't really have one album that is my favourite, I tend to like specific songs, but saying that I really like 1989 by Taylor Swift.

If you could dye your hair any colour you want, what would it be?
I would quite like to go a bit more blonde, but if I was brave enough I would love to go lilac or a more adventurous colour.

Favourite non famous YouTuber? 
I really enjoy Notes From The City. She does healthy vlogs and videos and she is incredible at editing!

Who inspires you?
This is quite hard actually! Lots of people inspire me, my friends definitely inspire me to just be happy and to be a better person.

Which places have you been to? (out of your country)
I have been to France, Italy and Ireland! (does Ireland count? haha)

What Netflix TV shows do you watch? e.g. PLL, Gossip Girl.
I don't actually have Netflix surprisingly! I feel like I'm the only one! On TV I love shows like Catfish, Bodyshockers and any sort of trashy TV.

Drugstore vs High End Makeup


Today I am sharing with you some of my favourite drugstore dupes for high end makeup!

In my collection I have discovered a few lipstick dupes, here are three Mac lipsticks with cheaper alternatives: 


Left - Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in '05'
Right - Mac lipstick in 'Speak Louder'


Left Bourjois Rouge Edition lipstick in 'Rose Millesime'
Right - Mac lipstick in 'Crosswires'


Left - Topshop lipstick in 'Innocent'
Right - Mac lipstick in 'Lovelorn'

These are all extremely similar, and are great dupes! The drugstore lipsticks are less than £10 and the Mac lipsticks are £15.50, so you could be saving up to £10!

Lastly I have a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked palette.


Top - Urban Decay Naked palette
Bottom - MUA 'Undressed' palette 

The Urban Decay palette is £37 and the MUA palette is an amazing £4! The quality of the MUA shadows are incredible, but in my opinion nothing quite beats the Naked palette.

Do you have any amazing dupes? Thankyou for reading!

Top 3 Products: Benefit

I would say Benefit is one of my favourite makeup brands, I love their products and of course their cute packaging! Today I am sharing my top 3 products from this brand.


1. They're Real Push-up Liner
This product has had so much hype about it and I truly think its worth the hype! From what I have heard it seems to be a product where you either love it or hate it. I do think it takes some getting used to, but if you can get the hang of it, it's amazing. It lasts so long and is very easy to work with.


2. Hervana Box Blush
This was my first of the boxed blushes, and I adore this one! It's got a mixture of pink, peach, a slightly purple shade and a beautiful highlight, when you mix them together it creates the most gorgeous glow! I highly reccomend this blush, especially if it's your first one from Benefit as it is not too strongly pigmented.


3.They're Real Mascara
Of course this mascara had to be included here! This is my all time favourite mascara, it makes yours lashes look so voluminous and long! Their new 'Roller Lash' mascara has recently come out too and I can't wait to try it out so I can compare the two.


Thankyou for reading, I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

This Week's Loves #1 ❤️

Today I am sharing with you what I having been loving this week!


L-R

Urban Decay Naked Palette
I only recently got this after wanting it for so long and I have been loving it this week! It has such a pretty selection of colours, all very wearable and pigmented.

Makeup Revolution Baked Blush - Bang Bang You're Dead
I think this blush is perfect for this time of year. It is quite a bright, cool toned pink which makes it look like you have been out in the cold, these are very good quality and affordable.

MAC Lipstick - Faux
This lipstick was featured in my previous post showing my MAC lipstick collection, so you can see it there. I love this shade and I recommend it to anyone who wants a Kylie Jenner lip, but doesn't want to go as far as Velvet Teddy from MAC.

Revlon Colourstay Foundation - Ivory
This is my new favourite foundation, it stays on my skin all day, and is matte without looking cakey.

Rogue - By Rihanna
I wouldn't call myself a fan of Rihanna, but I had to get this perfume as it smells incredible! The next time you are in a Boots or Superdrug, I advise you to smell it because it's amazing!

Thankyou for reading!
