Life Update & Beauty Haul

Hi guysss! So this is a bit of a random post, I have some things I want to tell you and a few beauty products I picked up.

So first off I have hit 200 followers on bloglovin’!! I can’t believe it I only started my blog 10 days ago and to have people following my blog commenting and liking my posts means the world to me. SO THANKYOU!! I hope that my blog does continue to grow and you guys continue to love it.

Next up on Tuesday it was the dreaded results day for Scotland. This year I did another 3 Highers. I needed only one more grade A at higher to get into university. After hounding the postman for my result certificate and a nail biting wait; I received 2 grade A’s and a grade B! Which was so unexpected and I’m delighted this means I’m moving to Edinburgh in a month ahhhhhh! So to celebrate this I went shopping. I picked up some clothes which I will show you on a later post but I also went to Superdrug to pick up a few things.

First off I got a Sleek eye shadow palette, I got the au naturel one. There was about 6 different palettes and were £7.99 each. I have had one before and they are super good quality very pigmented and the colours are beautiful. They have some amazing names like “toast”, “cappuccino” & “honeycomb”. I’m so excited to start using it and like the name the packaging is very sleek. 

I then picked up another Maybelline colour tattoo, so overwhelmed with the one I bought a couple of weeks ago which I have used practically everyday, I decided to buy another one. This one is in Permanent Taupe. It’s a matt grey(ish) colour. They advertise that they last 24hours, I’m not quite sure about that since I have never had the need to wear makeup for 24 hours. For £5 I just couldn’t resist.

Next I picked up L’Oreal Paris Super Liner (black) this was a repurchase as my last one run out. What I love about this eyeliner is that it is back, super black! It doesn’t have that navy tint to it which I hate. It is super easy to use and great for cat eyes. It is a mix of liquid and felt tip pen style liner.  A great liner for £6.49.

Lastly I picked up Revlon Colour burst matte balm in Striking Spectacular (240) which is a beautiful matt red. It doesn’t dry my lips out for being matte and lasts a reasonably long time. This was £5.99.

Lastly I want to say a big thank you to you all for reading & following and please feel free to tell me about what you would like me to post

July Favourites

Whaaaat its July already?? Where does the year go? So today I’m going to talk you through my beauty & random favourites of this month.

First off I have fallen completely back in love with Benefits Watts up highlighter. I have felt I have been reaching for this over my mac highlighters. It's a wind up, roll on highlighter that instantly adds light and glow to the skin. It is a very flattering shade and is easily bendable and I think it’s a beautiful summer product. And let’s be serious how cute is the packaging- it is benefit after all.

Next I have been loving as always my real techniques powder brush. I have a few real techniques brushes and have loved them. Then I purchased the powder brush- and never realised how amazed I could be at a simple makeup brush. Honestly I can’t recommend it enough it evenly applies my powder perfectly over my foundation and doesn’t make it cakey in the slightest. 

This month I picked up Maybeline’s Colour tattoo in on and on bronze. I’d heard loads about this product and now I understand why. First off it was £5 which totally surprised me- due to its high quality. It works amazingly as a base for eyeshadow or works just as well by its self for simpler makeup days. This month I have been reaching for this A LOT. I can’t wait to pick up some more shades of this product.

The last makeup product I have been loving this month is L’Oreal Lumi Magique primer.  This primer comes in a bottle with a pump dispenser.  The texture of the product is creamy and it is white in colour and what I really like about this product is that it immediately gives a glowy finish to the skin. It creates a great base for foundation and I really can’t fault this product.

When I was on holiday I accidently left my benefit moisturiser there so when I came home I had to repurchase one as my skin was really drying out. I didn’t have enough money to repurchase benefit Moisturiser so I picked up Olay Complete Care moisturiser. This is definitely the best drug store moisturiser- it completely cleared up my dry skin on my forehead and leaves my skin feeling silky soft.

My favourite hair products this month has been L'Oréal Paris Studio Matt & Messy salt spray. It creates beachy waves without using heat and was my saviour when I was on holiday. It’s shine free which leaves your hair looking matt and doesn’t leave it feeling greasy which I feel many hair products do. I just apply to my hair when damp then scrunch my hair and Voila beach waves.

I’ve been a huge passenger fan for a few years so was super excited when he brought out his new album “Whispers” in June. I love every track- and each song has a beautiful story which Mikes signs beautifully. My favourites are “27” and “Riding to New York.”  I would describe the album as indie rock with a soft edge. Check it out

My favourite YouTube channel this month has been I only recently found her channel and have been binge watching all her videos. I love her fashion sense and her simple makeup looks.

Hope you enjoyed this post. What have been your July favourites?
