Boudoir Prive...

So after everybody's dissapointment over the GlossyBox this month I've seen talk of another company that offer a similar deal, Boudoir Prive. It's the same price as GlossyBox, £10 a month, and is sent out monthly. Check them out Boudoir Prive :)

She's so sweet with her get back stare

So I've been in search of a good, high street, gel eye liner for a while now. I've heard all the amazing things about Bobby Brown and MAC'S gel eye liner's, but unfortunately I don't have Bobby Brown and MAC make-up money at the minute *boo* :(


So when I spotted this Maybelline one in Boots for £7.99 I thought I would give it a go.

The packaging is simple yet stylish, the same for all Maybelline products. The brush you get with the eye liner actually appears to be really good...the bristles feel nice and soft yet make the eye liner easy to apply.

The gel eye liner itself is actually really soft and creamy and is so easy to put up :)

This is just after one coat! I am very impressed and defiantly recommend it :)

Leave the sewing to the women. You go get some trimmin'

I'm a little bit in love with the matching necklace and bracelets I've made (not to be big headed or anything, ha)

A few more recent makes :)

Good enough to eat...

...literally!

I had to share this product with you, it really is one thing that I just have to have in my make up bag!! Let me introduce you to Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub

001

This is a-maz-ing! Now I suffer from ridiculously dry lips, probably not helped by the fact I have an awful habit of chewing my lips and (yes this is gross) biting the skin off. I hang my head in shame at the grossness :( So as you can imagine my lips are generally a dry flaky mess and just look hideous with any kind of lipstick on. I've tried the old trick of using an old toothbrush to try and 'de-flake' them but it just doesn't cut the mustard. That is until I found this bad boy.

'Our fabulous lip scrubs are here to keep your kissers sweet. This one will make your lips smell like our best-selling Snow Fairy shower gel. Bubblegum is made with exfoliating castor sugar and our delicious vegan flavour to gently scrub away rough skin, keeping your lips smooth and kissably soft. Simply rub it over your lips when they're feeling the need for some sugar' Lush

I spotted this bright pink pot next to the till and was instantly attracted by the Barbie Pink'ness then I opened it and was greeted by the most gorgeous smell! This old school sweet shop bubblegum, pah I wish Blogger had smell-o-vision it just smells so yummy! And *ahem* tastes rather yummy too, haha. And at £4.75 I couldn't NOT buy it :)

002

Now it is only a 25g pot which may not seem a lot but you honestly you only need to use the smallest amount. Rub it gently over your lips then wipe off, or if you're me then well...sneakily lick your lips :o It comes off easily and leaves your skin looking and feeling super soft. Pop on some lip balm to super moisturise them and you're good to go :)

Since using this my lips have never looked so good, no awful flaky skin and for once my lips actually look good with lipstick on. Bonus!
