March favourites

I can't believe March is over already!! Is it just me or has this year gone so quick already. I'm going to do my monthly favourites. Enjoy!!!
Clinique-chubby contour stick: there is a lot of product in the chubby stick which is great. It blends out perfectly and gives great cheekbones, if you love contouring this is the product for you.
Zoeva-100 luxe face paint: I haven't had this brush for long but I love it. There are no runaway hairs when washing or applying with this brush. It is made out of natural hairs. I find that the zoeva brushes always look so perfect. They are also a great size for traveling with.
Rimmel-wake me up foundation: this foundation is one of my faves, it has a medium coverage which I love. It doesn't go cakey which I always like with a foundation. I find that this colour suits my skin tone really well and it also makes my face feel so smooth. A little bit goes along way, with just one pump if you want a light coverage is all you need so it is build able on the face.
Charlotte Tilbury-lip liner savage rose: this lip liner is so pretty it draws round the lips so perfectly and it doesn't smudge. A lot of lip liners can be quite rough when applying but no this one is creamy. I really recommend this product.
Charlotte Tilbury-lipstick walk of shame: it's such a beautiful colour plummy red sort of colour. It has a matte finish some lipsticks with this finish are very drying to the lips but this one isn't. It is a very long lasting lipstick so will last for most of the day. I am in love with the packaging because I love rose gold.
Urban decay-smokey palette: at first I didn't know what sort of look to do with this palette because there are a lot of dark colours. Eventually I got the hang of this palette and now I can do neutral and smokey looks with this palette. One of my favourite colours is 'armour' because the silver has a lot of pigment so it stands out a lot more than what you expect it to.

Birmingham haul

Yesterday I went Birmingham to do some shopping and I bought four things which I really love. Enjoy!!!
The first thing I picked up was the MAC mineralise skin finish in soft and gentle. This is such a beautiful highlight it is a champagne gold sort of colour. It has the perfect shimmer and let's be honest there is never to much highlight. I love the packaging it looks so sleek. This is the first time I have used a Mac highlight and I love it, I really like the fact you can use it as an eyeshadow as well.
I also picked up this hexagon shape pot in copper and it looks so pretty. This is a great pot for makeup brushes because due to the shape you can fit the smaller brushes into the corners where as in a circle shape it's harder to fit all your brushes in.
This Mac prep + prime is amazing! I love the smell of this product and it makes my makeup stay on for a lot longer. This also helps my eyeshadow become more pigmented because I spray it on the brush and then put it in the eyeshadow and it becomes a lot more pigmented.
In selfridges I saw this photo frame and I fell in love. I love the colour at the moment I seem to be loving the colour copper and rose gold. I've never seen a photo frame like this so that's why I bought it because it was different.

Boots haul

If you had read my last post you would be aware that I was in Croyde and I mentioned that I was going to do a haul. All these products I'm going to mention are all at reasonable price as they are from a drugstore. Enjoy!!!
The first two things I bought were for contouring one from maybeline and one from collection. The collection master sculpt is great because I find it so easy to blend so you can make the contour as sharp or subtle as you want. The highlight has a perfect amount of shimmer. The maybeline master sculpt has to be my favourite out of the two because I think the colour is just perfect for contouring and the highlight is great as well. With this product it comes with a great sized mirror and will be easy to carry around with me.
For along time I have wanted to try out the collection concealer because I have heard so many good things about it. I haven't tried this product out yet so I can't say whether I agree with the craze or not. The other concealer is from soap and glory and I have also wanted to try this out for ages. When I first tried it I thought it was quite hard to blend with a brush but then I tried it again and it blended a lot better with a beauty blender.
This foundation is great it suits my skin tone perfectly and I find that it doesn't go clumpy on some of my dry patches which I love. It is easy to blend with a beauty blender or a brush as it doesn't leave any strokes. It does last a long time but I can't say it lasts for 25 hours because I personally don't leave makeup on for that long I put it on in the morning and take it off at night.
The Rimmel match perfection powder is great I put it on my oily places on my face like my t-zone, under eyes and my chin. It keeps my makeup in place all day so I recommend you go out and by this.
This boujoir blush is the best from a drugstore in my opinion I got mine in number 34. I love this blush because when you apply it to your cheeks it is subtle and has a shimmer to it from the gold running through it.
This number 17 'easy on the eye' is a great palette it comes with 8 nude eyeshadows, 3 cream eyeshadows and a primer. This palette would be great for beginners of makeup because they are subtle colours and they are easy to blend. Also I love that it comes with instructions so for a beginner they will learn what to do.

Where have I been

Sorry for the longtime no blog!!
For the past couple of weeks I have been on holiday in Croyde near Devon and I had a great time. I may have gone a bit crazy in boots but that is for another post. Me and my family all had a wonderful time and I thought I would share with you some of the pictures from Croyde. Enjoy!!!

The beach was great I haven't gone on a British beach in ages. I love the fresh air and the long walks because you always do more excersize than what you actually think. Although this type of holiday can be very exhausting.

Outside the house we hired there was a small stream and it was so cute with the bridge and the lanterns. At night we would light the lanterns and I don't know why but it reminded me of fairys.

I loved the fact that there was this cute little bench that you could sit on and I loved to sit there with my mum and just talk with her. Also hearing the stream I just loved.

Have you ever gone Croyde?
