Make-up Revolution Velvet Lip Lacquers

What do you mean this is my third matte lip product review? Are you merely stating point or complaining cause, girl can never have too many matte lip products, and I just wanted to share this one with you cause for one can we just look at these shades and two their 3 quid a pop!

Umm hell yeah I'm gunna share a bargain with you all and HOLY SHIT I'm in love guys. At first I thought Black Heart was going to be at my centre stage but I can definitely state that Vamp has not left my hand bag and I've worn this one the most I love sheering it out or layering it up for a full on. I still LOVE black heart but haven't really had a good enough chance to play with this as I think it will look super stunning with a full face which at 5am (the time I've been getting up for 2 weeks) that ain't happening, but I have a week of not having to be up so early so I thought I'd take advantage and have a proper pay around with this product. So as I pre-write my posts I may include some shots of the look I've gone for.

Vamp strangely I like it as an everyday lip colour for the autumn I find it sits really nicely even with minimal other make-up. I have to reapply this maybe once or twice a day but it does wear quite nicely I may try put some hourly shots so you can see how I mean like I did for the sleek matte me and bourjois rouge velvet posts but if not meh, I still fricking love this stuff guys!

I do also have one of the MUA velvet lip lacquers which I included in my current favourites this is a very similar formular to the make-up revelution ones and if I was blindfolded I dont think I'd be able to tell the diference I have only triend the one in Reckless which is a really nice true red and I have actually worn this one with black heart for a gothic lip option.
These all set to a Matte finish (I know DOH! Really Tash) but yea they do, I have found they can get a little crumbly after a while and also if you try reapply too soon. Saying that though these are supper pigmented and yea they get crumbly but they do last a good hour or two before that happens and Their £3 guys what more do you want for £3.

Primark wishlist

Rather than bore you with the multitude of cardigans I've been eying up in Primark I thought i would share with you some of the Christmasy bits and bobs I saw starting with bedding. There is always so many awesome bed sets in Primark I've really been loving woodland animals recently and have my heart set on having a pet badger for some reason I love them but these bed sets were just so tricking cute and when they're priced as low as £14 for my size I'm definitely going to pick myself up a couple

This throw is quite possibly one of the softest things I have ever felt they had quite a few different ones of these but I really loved this fairisle one I will defo be picking at least one of these up on payday. 
Following the Christmas theme they had all there xmas jumpers out and I saw this one in particular and just thought it was so cute however I don't think it would fit me but it's just super cute
2 other staples for colder months has to be the onsie and scarves I love my tartan scarf from Primark I picked up last month but they did seem to have a couple of other designs that I might have to pick up. Also this onesie has this cool batman print it was the only one I could find and doubt it would go even close but I do think it's awesome, one the wife would like also.

Last was these leggings which again I have a snowmans chance in hell of being able to fit in but how cool are these guys.

 I think I'm going through some weird third of life crisis cause normally I hate xmas but I'm loving the kitsch Christmas stuff this year!
I know it's 2 months til Christmas but I'm really starting to get into the mood for it this year oh well plenty of time to get my myself ready I guess. 
Till next week thanks for reading this post.

Current Favorites

I cant believe its October already, I thought it was time to share with you all some of the things I have been loving over the last month or so. These have been sure stead favourites of mine.
First, is this macadamia oil extract conditioner, this is a super thick conitioner that leaves my hair feeling super soft. I love using this as a mask as it is super rich and nourishing for my hair and it was only a pound! That's right this was only a pound, I found this in the pound shop and I'm so glad I picked it up I love it!

I picked up this shower gel on a whim I basically just needed some as I'd managed to run out and it was just ideally placed in ASDA.

I love rhubarb and custard sweets and holy crap this stuff smells just like the sweets its like having a shower in a sweet shop.
During the hotter months I tend not to wear too much make-up. So since its become a little cooler I've been wearing more and recently dug out this little beauty my Maybelline 24hr colour tattoo in Permanent taupe. I love this for my eyebrows I think its a perfect colour for me as I like my brows quite strong going into fall.
As fall/Autumn approaches I find my self wearing lip colour and usually I go for more red/berry tones, This MUA LUXE velvet lip lacquer in reckless has had a staple place in my make-up bag recently. I love this colour, it's a really nice deep red on me. This lasts so long I love it I've said it before but I hate reapplying lippy this is so easy as it drys matte and lasts a good 3 hours before needing touching up.  
I decided to pick up the Real Techniques Miracle sponge as I had seen so many good reviews at the time I was using the Body shops All-in-one bb cream and was using a cheaper version of the beauty blender which worked OK but when I went back to a liquid foundation I found that my usual sponge was lacking. The miracle sponge is amazing it leaves my foundation looking amazing, I love using the pointed end to apply my powder under my eyes its so versatile I love it and would recommend it to everyone.
Moving on to a skincare item I have been loving this last month, is this argan oil night repair serum. This stuff smells amazing  It has an incredibly rich feel to it, it smooths over my skin leaving it feeling amazingly soft. Love this!!
I've recently fallen back in love with dark nails after months of wearing nude, predominantly Model's Own Utopia. When I saw this colour there was just a light went on and I've got to say I gushed over it. I've not had a nail polish this colour before although it does remind me of an OPI polish I've lusted after before Mrs O'Leary's BBQ. I'm not sure if swatched next to each other they would be the same but looking at it in photos I'd say its very similar and only 99p you can't grumble. I love the Technic's nail polishes as they're really good and opaque and have a good lasting power mines been on 5 days ad for me that's really good.
My Last favourite is probably going to seem very strange. It is of course my e-cig. I started smoking when I was about 16 and have either not been able to or not really wanted to stop if I'm honest. I'd heard a bit about the e-cigs and know lots of people that use them.
I particularly liked the idea of still having that "smoker" status but having more pleasant flavour than an actual cig as well, I hate the taste of cigarettes and this just makes life so much easier and is so much cheaper than actual smoking, plus it allows me to have awesome flavours like double apple which tastes like apple sours my favourite tasting thing ever! 
Ok so that's everything again I hope you enjoyed this post. Thank you so much for reading this far I know its quite a long one so yea thanks for that.
Love you all

Fall beauty haul

During the past month I picked up a few beauty bits and bobs which I thought I would share with you all. 
I by no means needed a new make-up bag but I couldn't resist this super cute bambi make-up bag from primark for £3.
I also decided to try out some of the make-up revolution range and well I have to say I'm not disappointed with these 
First up was these eye shadows in Insomnia, Naive, illuminate, I remember and Hung up just £1.50 each. I really like these the colours are really nice and I'm in love with Insomnia its become one of my everyday eye shadows. 
 Next up I picked up some of these Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquers they're a liquid lipstick that dries matte and lasts fricking ages I love them.

I think these 3 in particular are going to be strong favourites for me this fall.
Next I picked up this brow gel from Technics in dark for £1.99, again I really like it. its got a really small wand so its ideal for getting close into your brows. 
I got this cute as little stippling brush from primark I thought it would be ideal for contouring, powdering under my eyes I think it will just be a good little brush to have and it was only £1.50
I actually found these Revlon parfumerie nail polishes in the pound-shop, so of course I had to grab them I love moonlit wood it's a beautiful purple with a silver shimmer to it and it smells amazing when its dried, I literally couldn't stop smelling my nail with this stuff on. Espresso on the other hand although its a really good black polish it smells like rotten meat or dog vomit (yes that specific) it's disgusting I found myself rubbing hand-cream into my nails just to try make them bearable. But these are pretty good polishes and I would pick up more even if they can smell like crap.

That's everything I wanted to include in this post. There were a couple of other bits as you can tell from the photo, but these are items I've coed about in my September favourites so if your interested in those you'll have to check out my favourites post.
Hope you've enjoyed this post, leave me a comment letting me know what you've been buying for fall and I will speak to you all again soon.
