What's In My Makeup Bag?


So i've seen so many bloggers do this and i thought that i maybe should join them and share with you the makeup products i use!

Sorry the photo quality isn't brilliant! I had to take them with my phone because my camera cable was packed up with my other things and put in my loft while i redecorate my room!

I brought my makeup bag for around £3 from Primark and i absolutely love it! It's quite big so i can fit everything i need in it and i think it's really pretty!
Collection 2000 Ultimate Fix 3-in-1 foundation
(Shade ~ Biscuit)
I've used this foundation for almost a year and i love it so much! It covers up blemishes really well and one pot lasts alot longer than other foundations. 
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer
(Shade ~ Light 2)
I discovered this concealer in January after reading hundreds of reviews from various different bloggers, and i love it. It really covers up any blemishes i have and lasts all day!

Natural Collection Tinted Moisturiser
(Shade ~ Natural)
I've had this tinted moisturiser for a while because i don't tend to use it regularly but when i do it's really good. I used it lots when i was on holiday in Greece as a foundation alternative, because i didn't want to wear a full face of make-up but i still wasn't happy going completely bare faced. It was really light but still covered almost all my blemishes and i only had to use a tiny amount of concealer on top of it. It also was good because even though i was wearing it, i still got a good tan.
17 Blemish Balm
(Shade ~ Medium)
I've had this BB cream for a while because i don't tend to use it regularly as i'm not a huge blemish balm fan but it is the best one i've used.

Rimmel London Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder
(Shade ~ 004 Sandstorm)
I've used this powder for absolutely ages and i love it so much! It makes my foundation last all day without me having to re-apply it. It blends really easily and looks really natural.

Natural Collection Juicy Lips Lip Gloss
(Shade ~ Caramel Shortcake)
Natural Collection does the nicest lip gloss ever! I don't ever wear lipstick but this gives my lips a stunning colour. And it tastes incredible, which is always great!

 Natural Collection Juicy Lips Lip Gloss
Another Natural Collection lip gloss but the label has come off the side so i'm not sure what shade this is! It's a lovely pink shade with a sort of sugary texture. I need to buy a new one soon so when i do i will review it and tell you the shade.

Natural Collection Juicy Lips Lip Gloss
Another Natural Collection lip gloss! Just like the last product the label has come off the side so i'm not sure what shade this is! It's a sort of brown/pink shade with the same sugary texture as the last lip gloss. I need to buy a new one soon so when i do i will review it and tell you the shade.

17 Waterproof Mascara
(Shade ~ Black)
I've used this mascara for ages and i love it. I use it everyday and it leaves my eyes looking brighter. And it never clumps, which is fantastic. 

Natural Collection CoverUp Cream
(Shade ~ Fair)
I used this product before i discovered the Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer and i now only use now and again. It covers blemishes quite well but doesn't seem to last as long as my current concealer. But it is a good concealer.

Natural Collection SunTint Bronzing Pearls
(Shade ~ Tropical Tan)
I've been using this product ever since i started using bronzer and i love it! The colour is amazing and it doesn't make me look orange like some products like this can.

Ted Baker Tweezers
I got these tweezers in a eye gift set, for christmas and i love them! They are really easy to use and they get all the little hairs.

Natural Collection Juicy Lips Lip Gloss
(Shade ~ Vanilla)
I use this lip gloss on 'natural' days where i'm wearing minimal make-up, and also at school. It really moisturises my lips well and lasts for quite a while. 

Natural Collection Solo Eyeshadow
(Shade ~ Butterscotch)
I've love this eyeshadow! It looks so natural and is so easy to apply. I'm not sure if Boots sell this shade anymore though, as it's not on their website.
So that's what's in my makeup bag! If you have any questions about any of the products i'll be happy to answer them! And if you do a post like this comment the link so i can have a look!

Beauty Blogger Tag!


I saw this tag done by Michelle of Cherise Cheeks and i thought it looked fun so i decided to give it a go! Here you go ~

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
It's normally quite tousled and wavy!

2. What is your natural hair colour?
A sort of medium brown colour.
3. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I don't dye my hair.
4. How often do you wash your hair?
I wash my hair every other day because i find it gets dirty quite quickly!
5. Do you wear the same style every day or change it?
I rarely do anything with my hair! Just leave it to do what it wants! But sometimes i pin back a section of hair from the front of my hair, round at the back.
6. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
I prefer to do it myself!
7. How often to you change your nail polish?
Well i'm not allowed to wear nail polish at school so i only wear it when it's the school holidays, and then i will change it after about a week.
8. Do you polish your toes in the winter, too or just in the summer?
I always wear polish on my toes! It makes them look nicer and i just like it.
9. How long does it take to put on your makeup?
It usually takes me about 10-15 minuets. I don't wear many different products.
10. What do you do first? Face or eyes?
Always face! Or i end up smudging my eye make-up with my foundation sponge or my powder brush and everything goes wrong!
11. Do you "collect" makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
I'm quite good at only buying make-up when i need it because i normally wear the same make-up everyday but my weakness is lipgloss! Oh and nail polish! I don't know why but i love trying new lip/nail products, more than i do skin and eye products! I think it's because of all the different colours you can try!
12. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
I've actually never worn them! I might try some out in April at a big posh family party though.
13. Do you do a full face of makeup every day?
If i'm going to either leave the house, or if people other than my parents and sister are going to be in the house, then i will put a full face on, but if not i will just put on some concealer.
14. Do you wear makeup when you are home alone (or with family)?
Just a dab of concealer.
15. Will you leave the house without makeup?
Never! I have like no confidence when i'm without make-up! It's bad i know but if i'm sleeping round someones house or something i will take a stick concealer and keep applying it all night!
16. How many high end products do you have?
Hardly any! I am limited with the money i have for makeup but i tend to find i get on with the cheaper makeup better anyway,
17. How often do you wash your makeup brushes?
Once every 2 weeks maybe? But i don't use them alot anyway.
18. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you are getting dressed?
Normally when i'm getting dressed unless it's an early start or i've got something planned.
19. How often do you change your handbag?
Hardly ever! I love love love my bag at the moment so i don't think i'll be changing any time soon!

I get up at around 7:15am and i go to bed sometime between 10pm and 11:30pm.

A dog, called Presley.

My To Read List!


So i have to admit, i am one of the biggest book worms you will ever meet! If i get really into a book i can spend all day just lying on my bed reading! I have a list, in a little notebook i carry around in my handbag, of all the books i want to read. If i see a review or advertisement for a new book that i think looks good, i add it to the list! And today i thought i'd share with you my 'to read' list at the moment -

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
Nobody But Us by Kristin Halbrook
The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks
The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Piccult
Anna And The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson
If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Have you read any of these books? What did you think? And are there any other books/authors you think i should check out?

Review: Latest In Beauty!


Sorry for the lack of posts over the last few weeks! I've been really really busy! But it's now half term and i have a huge list of blog post ideas that i'm going to be doing over the next week!

Today i received my order from Latest in Beauty. Latest in Beauty is a company that offers you a 'try before you buy' option, where you can order samples of different beauty lotions and potions. When you sign up to the site, they ask you to fill out a little beauty questionnaire so they can offer you the samples that best suit you and you beauty needs.

There's three options: The Little Beauty Box, Luxury Samples and The Collections. So far i have only ordered a little beauty box but here's a little bit of info on each option:

The Little Beauty Box
The Little Beauty Box is where you can go through the website looking at a range of products that the company think will suit your beauty needs, based on the answers from your beauty questionnaire. You can pick three free products, one from each of the categories Skincare, Body & Hair and Makeup & Perfume. The products are normally standard sample sized (mainly sachets) and once you have picked all three, they are popped in a box and posted off to you.

Luxury Samples
This is similar to the little beauty box however this time all the samples are larger (they normally last a week) and you have to pay for each one. The samples are normally the same size as the travel size products you can pick up in boots and superdrug. This is great if you want to try a product for a bit longer before you buy a full sized pot. The prices range from £1.00 to £15.00.

The Collections
The Latest in Beauty Collections are a collection of six beauty boxes, each designed for a different beauty purpose. There's Mother & Baby, Editor's Faves, Beauty Bible, Pampering, Complexion Perfection and Beauty From Within. Each box is priced between £8.00 and £20.00 (+P&P) and contains a range of different products from various different luxury beauty companies.

In my Little Beauty Box i picked:
  • Belnatur - Balance Cream
  • Berkley Square - Royal Ballet Body Conditioner
  • Melvita - Moisturising Rose Nectar
I'm not going to review this products now because i would like to dedicate a whole post to each of them but from what i can see already they are great! I received one sachet for the melvita moisturising rose nectar and two for the belnatur balance cream and the royal ballet body conditioner.

It took 5 days for my order to arrive, which i thought was pretty good. The box costs £1.50 for postage and packaging and you can only order one box per month.

I was really impressed with the Little Beauty Box service and i'm going to be definitely using Latest In Beauty in the future! I'd recommend it to everyone who loves luxury beauty products!

Lots of Love
