Favourites So Far :)

Hello :) This may not seem like a lot of favourites to gain in short of 4 months however, most days are minimal school makeup which does not warrant red lips or dark brown eyeshadow. I have quite a few things so I will try and keep everything short and sweet. 
Illamasqua Human Fundamentalism Lipstick in colour Box - £18.50
This lipstick is my favourite red I have ever tried. My staple red lip. It is thick but the finish is beautiful. It doesn't crease on your lips. It doesn't dry out and it is extremely long wearing. I think the longest I had this on was about 5 hours, in which time I ate and only had to dab on a little for a touch up. It is simply brilliant. The perfect red that doesn't make your teeth yellow and I expect it would go with every skin tone.

 L'oreal Infallibe Eyeshadow in colour Goldmine - £6.99
I had heard many excellent things about this product but never got around to buying it until this year and I am so happy I did. It is truly gorgeous. When I swatched it in the shop I almost did a little dance of joy because the colour, pigmentation and shimmer is so stunning. This makes a regular appearance on school days when I want my eyes to stand out but don't have much time. Highly recommend this.

Illamasqua Bronzing Duo in Glint & Writhe - £26
Here we are again, Illamasqua. I adore this product. I use Glint to Highlight and Writhe to add some extra bronze to my face. Glint is a beautiful golden highlight that you can use on many areas of the face. It is extremely subtle and very flattering. Writhe is very warm toned and extremely pigmented which does take some time to work with and blend so you don't look too orange however, the results are gorgeous. This product is basically a sun tan in a compact.

Topshop - £6
I am obsessed with anything daisy/sunflower/floral in earrings and these are the perfect fit. They are a bright yellow that stands out nicely and they are perfect for the spring time.

Locket - £9
I bought this in Sloan's Market in Glasgow a few week ago and I have fallen in love with it's vintage style and art nouveau pendant. I just love it.

Batiste Dry Shampoo - £2.99
I came back to this after trying the Dove dry shampoo and not liking it. Other than quality, this has many more redeeming qualities than the Dove dry shampoo, it is about £2 cheaper, there is more product and it actually keeps your hair looking matte and clean. I would pick this over any other one I have tried.


BLEACH London Silver Shampoo -£5
My saviour. This is amazing. I have been using this for a couple of months and it is the best thing I have ever found for my hair. It does everything it says while leaving your hair extremely soft afterwards. My only criticism is the packaging. Despite my love for this small grungy packaging, it doesn't have a pump or nozzle that dispenses the product nicely in your hand. This bottle just pours out which means the product comes out way to fast and when I first started using it, it went everywhere. However, that doesn't affect the amazing product inside.

MAC Eyeshadow in Woodwinked - £10
I have had this for a long, long time but for some reason I was slightly disappointed by it in the beginning because it didn't seem as lovely when I applied as in the pictures or YouTube videos but then I rediscovered it after watching a Shop My Stash video with SprinkleofGlitter and Zoella. This is actually a great eyeshadow, one of my daily go-to shadows in fact. With the right primer and a good amount of sandwiching of the product this stays on almost all day. It also blends out wonderfully, making it seem like you've used a separate shade in your crease.

Katy Perry Killer Queen Perfum - £14.99
I received this in a set for Christmas and I have been using it almost every day since. I also own the Moschino perfume in I Love Love but I have only been able to buy it in Tenerife, so I am waiting until the summer months to start using that again.In the mean time, this perfume is just my style. It is a very evening perfume but I wear it to school and going shopping because it's very me. Also, the packaging is super cool and a very nice size to hold in your bag.

Topshop Eyes Duo in Woodland Walk - £6
These eye shadows are better than some of my high end shadows. Topshop has a brilliant cosmetics line. I particularly love their nail polish and lipstick. And now their eye shadow! I have been looking for a dark brown eye shadow for a while now and this is just my perfect shade. It has a hint of gold shimmer which compliments my light blue eyes and blonde hair perfectly. The golden/champagne colour in this duo is perfect for your inner corner and on the lid with a matte crease colour for something quick. In addition to this product's greatness, he two colours mixed together are brilliant, it is very creamy so there minimal fall out and it is very blendable. A+ Topshop!

Au revoir mes amis! :)
