Morphe Liquid Lipstick in “Morphe”. 

Hiya! Wow I can’t believe the week is nearly over! Today’s look is a really simple one. I really didn’t feel like going the whole hog with makeup today so just went for a bare face with a coat of mascara and a bold lip. The mascara I’ve been using lately is Roller Lash by Benefit. I love this mascara! There’s no clumps and it beautifully separates the lashes! The lippy I chose to wear today is a liquid lipstick by Morphe Brushes in the shade “Morphe”. 

The shade is actually brighter than I thought it would be when I first ordered it. The lip swatch on the site made it look to be more of a deep blood red. However, I still really love this shade! The formula of this lipstick is lovely. It goes on so smoothly and doesn’t feel drying at all. It’s got such a lovely scent as well. Vanilla, I think. The staying power is fantastic although it does fade in the centre of the lips when you eat/drink. I found that after wearing it for while it doesn’t crumble like some other brands do. I did find though that it bleeds a little. I think that’s quite common with reds in general mind. I’ve yet to find a red that doesn’t bleed.

I think this will be my go-to statement lippy. I absolutely love it! 

I purchased mine from Beauty Bay. At the time there was a sale and it was on offer for around £6.50 but it’s current price is £10.50.

A sneaky makeup peak… 

A sneaky peak as to what’s coming up on the blog! 😀 Thank you Medusa’s Makeup! I can’t wait to share this with you guys!

Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter review. 


I love Makeup Revolution’s vivid baked highlighter in golden lights. You can use a quick swirl of the highlighter for a natural glow, giving a flawless look to your skin. Sooo easy to apply and blend. You literally only need a tiny bit for that subtle glow or a little bit more to really blind them! 

Dare I say it’s better than Jeffree Star’s Skin Frosts?? Yes! And at £3 it’s a fraction of the cost! I shall definitely be purchasing again! On my eyes I’ve used the Jeffree Star Androgyny palette and on my lips the Morphe liquid lipstick in School Girl.

I bought my Vivid Baked Highlighter from Superdrug but you can also purchase it online from Tam Beauty.

Note: The makeup products I have used are either cruelty free or vegan! 😀 🐰

The Beauty Gift Swap! 

Hey guys! How’s your Sunday going? Today I want to post about something I’m a part of and I’d love for you to be a part of it too! I’m admin for  a beauty swap box group on Facebook where each month members are teamed with a buddy and you each put together a box filled with lovely beauty, skincare products and other little gifts that you think your buddy will like. The amount you want to spend on your swap box gifts is entirely up to you and your buddy!  You don’t have to join in each month, you can just do it the once if you’d like. 

It’s lots of fun and it’s great making new friends in the process. If you’d like to join or want to know more then click on one of the pictures to take you to the group. Sadly, because it may be expensive to post to other countries, the group is for UK and Ireland residents only.

MOTD – Freedom Jewels And Riches palette! 

Because my lips are still recovering from an allergic reaction to a lip plumper, I don’t feel confident wearing makeup at the mo and sharing the looks so I thought I’d share another look that I did a few weeks ago. I’d recently bought a Freedom eyeshadow palette so couldn’t wait to give it a whirl!   My brows aren’t quite on point but fairly pleased with the overall look. I used shades Moonstone, Rose and Revelation from my Freedom Jewels And Riches palette and Jeffree Star’s liquid lippy in Sagittarius on my lips. 😀 Loving the Freedom eyeshadow palette. It’s quite pigmented and for £8 you can’t go wrong! What are your favourite eyeshadow palettes? Do you own any from this brand? Let me know in the comments below!

Kiss Cosmetics Mini Lip Vinyl in ‘First Kiss’ – Review. 💋💄

  

Oh my gosh how dinky and cute are these mini lip vinyls?! The lovely folk at Kiss Cosmetics kindly sent me a mini lip vinyl in ‘First Kiss’ to review and I was more than happy to do so. It’s taken me a little longer to do my review due to moving away, settling in and having a baby on the way but whew I have finally found a moment to sit down, have a natter and tell you all about it. On with the review…
At just over 4cm in height and aprox 1cm in diameter, they are a lovely little size to fit into a small bag on a night out and are also perfectly travel sized for taking on holiday! And at £2 each, they won’t break the bank if you fancy buying a couple to see which shade suits you best. They may be small but they still manage to pack a big punch of colour.  Even before I was sent this to review, I was already a fan of Kiss Cosmetics’ lip vinyls as they are so pigmented just like a lipstick, and though they glide on like a gloss, I find they last much longer. I already own their lip vinyl in the shade ‘Vinyl Lady in Red’ (and also have the matching Kisstick!) but this is my first time trying the mini ones. I have to admit, that with this particular mini, once applied, was a little patchy on my lips (prior to applying, I had used a lip scrub to get rid of any dead skin and make my lips smooth). I think this may be down to the small applicator though as I don’t get the same problem with the normal size lip vinyls. I had to put several coats of this on and lightly went over with my finger to even out the patchiness.

 

Mini Lip Vinyl in ‘First Kiss’

 
On me, the shade turned out to be a Barbie-pink kind of colour (though the photo was taken in natural light, I still couldn’t quite get it to depict the actual colour but it’s fairly close). A great shade if you have lighter hair, I think. I am going to carry on using this as I think maybe practice makes perfect when it comes to the mini applicator.

Have any of you tried out these lip vinyls or any of Kiss Cosmetics’ products before? What do you think?

Shade: ‘First Kiss’. Click the pic to check out Kiss Cosmetics full range of mini lip vinyls.

Frisky Fucshia Kisstick by KISS Cosmetics! 💄

Some of you may already know that last month in the UK, a new cosmetics brand was born: Kiss Cosmetics. What’s more, they love our furry friends so all their products are animal cruelty free. Yay! For all you lippie lovers out there, they are specifically focusing on lip products that will make our lips look luscious and lovely (see what I tried to do there? 😝) Over the past few weeks I have excitedly watched as the brand revealed each new product and released them onto their site to be purchased. This is still ongoing as they have lots of exciting products still to come. Their newest product being The Scrub Stick which is a lip scrub in a balm. –  I can’t wait to try this! Anyhoo … as soon as the site went live, I raced over there and put all the products I loved onto my wish list on the site and, once payday came around, I immediately went and ordered a couple of bits:
  
• Locked Lips (a lipstick sealant) £3.50
• Lip Vinyl in the shade Lady In Red £7.00
•Kisstick in Frisky Fuschia £7.00
I thought the prices were pretty reasonable and delivery was only £2!
I shall be reviewing all of the products above but the one I’m reviewing today is the Kisstick! What can I say? I love it! 
  
It is bright pink and oh my gosh it is so highly pigmented! It is a lovely creamy formula which makes my lips feel soft and moisturised. The colour lasts for several hours, although less if you’ve eaten or drunk something but then that goes without saying. That being said, even when the colour does fade, you’re still left with this strong pinky tint on your lips! It really is a gorgeous lipstick! I was so impressed by it. I’m not normally a pink girl but I went for this colour because I wanted a change. And it was totally worth it!
Next on my list? Scrub Stick!! And I think I’ll also buy a more neutral tone of the Kisstick to see if the pigment and staying power is just as awesome. Althoough the Kisstick in the shade Magnetic Melon is just calling out to me! It had me from the name! I love the names that are given to the Kissticks and Lip Vinyls.
For example: First Kiss, Birthday Suit and Seductive Damson. By the way, each Lip Vinyl shade perfectly matches each Kisstick shade! So this takes the guess work out if you love to top off your lipstick with a matching gloss. However, both are fabulous all on their own! More on the Lip Vinyl next time!

My fave lipstick.

Hi guys,

How’s your bank hol weekend going? I have spent mine in Wales visiting my boyfriend and am currently on the train home. The last time I was at my boyfriend’s, I’d left some of my favourite makeup there but have now been reunited with it, yay! I couldn’t be bothered to put any makeup on today, however, but I had really missed my Lip & Cheeks stick by My Little Beauty so I couldn’t resist putting some of this on my lips. I just love the shade and how natural it looks. 

 

What do you think?

My boyfriend and I went to see Avengers – Age of Ultron at the weekend. I really enjoyed it! I think the funnies were a little try-hard at times but still made me laugh. I’m a fan of Joss Whedon’s work so I guess I’m a little biased haha.

We also went to our usual haunt, Frankie & Benny’s, before the film started but I didn’t get to have Brownies and Ice-cream this time as we were worried we’d miss the beginning of the film! 😔

I randomly took this photo whilst in F&B’s:

  
I just thought the candle looked pretty lol.

Enjoy the rest of your day! My train is currently stuck in the middle of nowhere and has technical “issues”. I really hope we’re not waiting too long!

Feeling a little off colour today.



I have caught a horrible cough and cold and I feel awful. 😦 So felt like a dressinggown day and decided to make myself look a little better by putting on some makeup. No foundation though as I seem to have had an allergic reaction to something I’ve been putting on my face which has made me come out in these weird dry patches along my jawline. :-/ So all I could put on was some MAC orange correcter from their Pro Conceal And Correct Pallette, a moss green eyeshadow from ELF and Roller Lash from Benefit. Oh and my peachy coloured lip and cheeks pencil from My Little Beauty.



Ok so the eyeshadow looks a little lighter than in the palette lol but tbh I didn’t really feel like layering it to get a stronger colour, I kinda liked the way it looked. 🙂 Oh and sorry about the shaky pic.

I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend. I’m currently catching up on the week’s The Flash. 🙂

MAC Retro Matte lipstick…

Today, whilst Aled was playing one of his xbox games, I thought I’d take advantage of the fact and put on some makeup. As previously posted, I’d bought MAC’s Retro Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo so thought I’d try it out. It’s such a lovely shade of red! When it comes to reds or dark colours I always use a lip brush. And, no matter what colour lipstick shade I use, I always, always use a lip scrub and lip balm before hand.

What do you think? Apologies about the photo. My makeup was a quick job today as Aled was wanting me to hurry up so we could go out lol (The lipstick was put on a while later once we’d gotten home). So it’s not exactly a perfect application but it’ll do. As well as the lipstick, I also used MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ and my Urban Decay de-slick setting spray which were all bought on my recent beauty haul. I won’t be reviewing any yet as I feel I need to use them a few more times before I make up my mind. Also, with it being such a quick makeup job today, I wasn’t as observant as I should be so the reviews shall come at a later date.
