10 Unicorn Horn Makeup Brushes For Under £10

Sunday, February 19, 2017

I'm sure you'll all be no stranger to the news of Unicorn Horn Makeup Brushes. Well, I recently came across these beauties for the small price of £8.69 as well as free P+P. £8.69 for TEN brushes!!!

Look how beautiful they are. The Rose Gold Ferrule compliments the opalescent horn handles so well. I also love the fresh white look of the actual brushes in comparison to rainbow ones I have been seeing.

These brushes not only ooze class but also work really well as makeup brushes. The quality of the brushes is beautiful and I literally couldn't fault them. The bristles feel luxurious and soft which is so hard to believe considering you're paying less than a pound per brush.

Hope I pleased some of you unicorn lovers out there! You can purchase them here.


Is This THE Best Budget Palette around?

Friday, February 17, 2017

So, a couple of days ago I purchased this Makeup Revolution palette. Well, I say purchased but really I got it for free for spending £12 on their products. Initially, I came in just to buy the palette as I had seen it earlier that day and decided I just had to have it and at £8 it was a steal. So, when I returned, to find out that if you spent £12 on MUR products you got a free palette I was ecstatic. This is the kinda thing a poor student with a beauty blog wants to hear.

Anyway, aesthetically for a budget palette I think this palette is stunning. I love the heart of highlight and the eyeshadows around it. The eyeshadow colours are so beautiful and vibrant, I'm really loving the reddish colour.

Makeup Revolution Haul

Thursday, February 16, 2017

Yesterday I went in to Superdrug and saw a deal for a free palette from Make up Revolution if you spend £12. This is an absolute steal so of course I just HAD to.

I also thought I'd try a £1.50 eyeliner of theirs as I've ran out of mine and I thought I may as well for such a small price. I swatched liner on my hand and it looks like a really good deep black colour. I'm looking forward to trying it.

Struggle to find a matching lip liner for your liquid lipsticks? Me too. So, when I saw this set of lipstick and liner I just had to get it. As you can see by the swatches it's a gorgeous colour; something I wish I'd have had on Valentines!

I chose the 'love' palette to get for free which I'll be writing about in more detail tomorrow after I've tried it but WOW, how stunning is it? And for free?? I honestly think it's the prettiest budget palette I've ever seen! It's super pigmented and beautiful. I swatched all of the shades and that was only a light swatch! They're beautiful colours and I just love the heart of highlight, the highlight colour is so beautiful and filters light stunningly. 

This contour stick is also stunning. The colour of it is enough for it to look natural and like your skin is just naturally glowing and vibrant.

All in all Makeup Revolution just keep on exceeding expectations. They may be a budget brand but this is certainly not reflected in their products.

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner Review

Sunday, February 12, 2017

Today I wanted to review Kat Von D's Tattoo Liner. I know a lot of bloggers have this liner but I wanted to let you guys know a true review as to whether it's worth it.

This liners a little pricey at £16 as I was used to getting Rimmel's Glam Eyes for around a fiver which was a really decent eyeliner but I grew tired of using a brush tip. It was hard to get that really defined flick as it wasn't as stable as a pen like nib which is what Kat Von D's liner boasts.

I have THE oiliest eyelids and hooded lids too so I'm pretty much the worst person ever to buy eyeliner for. In the summer it transfers all over my face and I end up looking like a panda so I went on a quest to find a liner that was going to go on and STAY on.

I heard about Kat's tattoo liner and thought immediately it sounded great for me. Read some reviews and took the plunge. I have to admit it's the best liner I've ever used.

It goes on like a dream, glides across the lid easily and is super super black which is what I wanted. Its staying power is great too however I did find on a couple of the hottest days it did slightly transfer though I'm the hardest to cater for when it comes to eyeliner due to the oiliness and hooded lids so a couple of times was a miracle for me.

The only other problem I had with this liner was that when you apply it and want to touch it up, it can just start kinda playing up and not actually applying over itself if you do it once it has dried. This isn't a huge issue though as it very rarely happens. 

Once it dries it does seem to be very tattoo like though I also noticed it can have a slight kind of frosted tint to it/kinda glazed which must be something to do with the tattoo like formula.

All in all, I think this liner is really good, it's easy to apply, got a very nice jet black look and has great staying power. Though, some downfalls are in certain lights it looks a tad glazed and also sometimes plays up with application and on very hot days I find it can transfer.

All in all I rate this liner a 8/10. It's the best liner I've tried.

 Here's an example of the liner once applied.

The Blogger Recognition Awards

Saturday, February 11, 2017

So, to my absolute amazement, I was elected for the 'blogger recognition award' which is so overwhelming for me. I know it sounds stupid but I've never had any of this type of thing before and it means SO much. It means that I must be doing something right! I honestly couldn't be more happier with all of your support with my blog and I couldn't enjoy writing for you more! I've found my calling in life and this is definitely it; so brace yourselves as I'm going to be sticking around. Every comment, every follow, every read, every page view counts and means so so much to me.


1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog
2. Write a post to show your award
3. Give a brief story of how your blog started
4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers
5. Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to
6. Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them & provide the link to the post you create

The lovely blogger who nominated me is the lovely Shannon from Shanylou who has the loveliest little blog and you should TOTES check it out. She posts really great content and she's a flatlay goddess!


So I'm going to be so very honest. This blog began when really I should've been doing uni work and cramming in studies (sorry mum). However, my course wasn't all it was cracked up to be and I've found myself to have fallen behind. I've sat there thinking 'I'm not going anywhere, I don't know what to do with my life, I'm not going to succeed' and lay in bed moping feeling sorry for myself wishing my life had some direction. Then I thought about blogging, I've blogged once previously when I was really young, it was more for myself than anything and I had absolutely no idea what I was doing! But I remembered how much I loved it and I'd always meant to start it up again. I'm obsessed with fashion and beauty and I really needed the chance to express myself. So.. I started and suddenly I was eager to get out of the bed in the morning. My life feels like it has more direction.


As a new blogger myself I've been through the start up process before. I've actually written a post offering ten tips for new bloggers here. However, my top two would be:

1. BE YOURSELF. Set yourself apart from everyone else. That's my biggest tip ever! Try and choose a template that tells us about you. That's what I did. I chose one that represented me, my favourite colour, hobbies etc. That way, you're more likely to be remembered. 

2. Enjoy it. If you don't enjoy blogging then you'll get no where as it'll be reflected in your writing. Only take it up if it's something you're passionate about and love.

Valentines Day Make-up Idea - Red, Gold & Nude

Friday, February 10, 2017

I thought seeing as Valentines day was up and coming that I'd do a makeup look for you all. This is probably what I'll wear on Valentines day. I literally love experimenting with makeup and it's one of my fave things other than fashion!

For the lids I've done a red cut crease, in keeping with the luuuurve theme. I teamed it with gold glitter as what''s better than a bit of red and gold glitter for Valentines. I used Kat Von D's tattoo liner for my liner.

I made this look quite glowy and used a bit more blusher than I normally would as I feel it's appropriate for that Valentines vibe.

On my lips I used Kylie Jenners Dolce K topped with some Sally Hansen lip gloss. I'm not normally one to wear lip gloss but for Valentines it is SO appropriate. Glossy lips look great for kissing even though they'll probs end up all sticky ha! (NO innuendo itended.. gosh guys I know it's Valentines  but calm down).

I also added a cute lil heart as it's a Valentines day makeup idea so why the f not hey! haha

By the way, if you noticed the slightly singed wire then, yeah.. I nearly burned down my house taking these pictures! My fairy lights fell on to my candle. Luckily lights still functioning and no fire occurred, I caught it just in time haha! Shows what type of a person I am.. clumsy AF.

How To Have a Fleeky Contour For £5

Wednesday, February 08, 2017

Do you want your face to be sculpted like a goddess? You need to get your hands on this sculpting contour stick from Makeup Revolution. It's IS a revolution. I have tried loads of different things to contour my face but this stick just works so well.

The fact that it's a stick makes it so easy to apply which is why I really really love this. I have the sleek contour palette and numerous other contouring contraptions but nothing lives up to this beautiful £5 wonder. I honestly couldn't recommend it enough. It goes on so well, stays on amazingly, looks great. 

This was my potato face before I used the stick to contour my face. Round and potatoey in all it's glory.

Whereas afterwards, I look way more chiseled. It accentuates all your best features and slims your face right down. I love contouring it's literally the best thing ever and this stick just makes it so much easier!

Overall I rate this beautiful PERFECT stick 10/10. It couldn't be any better, it's affordable, long lasting and sends me from a potato to a chiseled goddess. What more could you want?

What do you use to contour your face? Do you contour at all?
