Steppin' into Spring with Pastels

Spring is just around the corner. Here in Scotland, I've have been noticing a lot more sunshine and warm weather. Wildflowers are popping up left, right and centre! I've started moving away from my darker burgundies and chocolates and making the effort to reach for brighter, lighter tones. Whenever the season changes I feel the urge to buy new nail polish; like my transformation from winter to spring, starts with my nails.

That Fall Feeling! OPI Nail Lacquer in 'It's a Piazza Cake'

I first spotted a pot of random OPI shades sitting on the counter of one of the shops I was in whilst on holiday. My plan was to pick out clothes and makeup suitable for the upcoming Autumn season. Rooting around in the pot revealed this amazing shade. My first thought when I picked it up was that it made me think of pumpkin spice; the ultimate icon of Autumn.

My Travel Makeup Bag!

There are only a few more days until I'm back home in Disney World! I've been super slacking on all my packing and getting my stuff organised. This was supposed to be last weeks post, however, I still was trying to decide on what to bring along with me. I feel like I've got to a good place where I've got makeup to cover all eventualities. 

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in Devotion

Recently I've been trying to pack up all my travel makeup for going a way next week, and it is proving harder than I remember. My makeup bag weights a tonne and I seem to be taking everything but the kitchen sink. While I have been trying to whittle down what I'm taking, I've been noticing products that I haven''t used a long time. The Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolors are one of those products. Since chucking it in my travel bag, I have not been able to stop reaching for it.

Maybelline ColourSensational Lipstick in Honey Beige

Nude lipsticks. What can I say? Sometimes trying to find the right nude for your complexion can seem like a daunting task. I know that I, personally, am always on that hunt for the perfect nude lipstick. One that's not to deep or pastel, and neither too brown or pink toned; just that perfect middle ground that seems impossible to find. This brings me to my newest nude lipstick, the Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick in Honey Beige.

Product Empties | Would I Repurchase? Part 2

I received such a good response to my previous empties post that I've decided to delve back into my empties bag and share some more! I'm still struggling to remember to pop my products in the bag. My mum sees an empty-ish bottle in the bathroom and just chucks it straight in the bin. Boo!

Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Lipstick in Cool Girl

Matte liquid lipsticks are still having their moment! Everybody still loves a good matte lip. While I like to experiment with different brand formulas, I still have a few brands that I think have some of the better matte liquid lip formulas.

First Ever Bobbi Brown Haul!

Recently a Bobbi Brown counter opened up not too long ago in my local Debenhams beauty hall! I have always wanted to try Bobbi Brown products, but I always get distracted by new launches from brands that I've tried already. There are still quite a lot of makeup brands that I have very little experience with, and Bobbi Brown is one of them. 

So I decided to change all that and pick up some items that I had been keeping my eye on, or just really caught my eye. I picked up a Shimmer Brick Compact, an Art Stick Liquid Lip, a Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, and the Skin Foundation Stick. I'm so excited to get using all of these!
