ColourPop Are Finally Shipping to the UK!!

As you can tell from the title of this blog post, us girls living in the UK can finally get our hands on Colourpop cosmetics. Hurray!! When I received the email of this news, I literally paused for a few seconds and was like WHAT THE ...F#*$%!! I am super excited and I'm sure I'm not the only one squealing with excitement. They will be shipping to the UK from next week. If you haven't heard of Colourpop cosmetics, then where have you been?? They are one of my faves when it comes to affordable makeup with great quality, great pigmentation and a wide selection of colours for all skin tones.

So I didn't even know that Colourpop would ever ship to the UK, so I went and purchased a few from eBay a couple months back even though they were a little more pricey. So I decided to share with you all the shades that I purchased on Ebay with swatches so that you guys get an idea of how they'd look on medium/dark complexions. I did not swatch them on my lips but I do have a few pictures on my instagram of myself wearing some of these shades, so I've just uploaded them instead.

At first I wasn't a fan of liquid lipsticks because of how drying they were on my lips. They were my first ever liquid lipsticks so I just wasn't comfortable with the dry feeling of them. But over time I tried different methods of applying them and found that it is best if you apply lip balm right before you apply the lipstick and also make sure that you've got no foundation all over your lips as it would make it dryer.

I hope you all enjoyed this blog post. Let me know which one is your favourite shade. I do have a few  Colourpop products that I want to get my hands on when the day finally arrives. And I also have a feeling that the site will probably breakdown on the day haha! I've listed the shades and mini reviews of each shades below :)

Left to right: Clueless, Teeny Tiny, Tulle, Bumble, Kae, Limbo, Guess

Clueless: Very pigmented, barbie pink shade.

Teeny Tiny: Very pigmented, purplish pink with a cool grey undertone.

Tulle: One of my favourite. Very pigmented, warm dark pink with a brown undertone.

Bumble: Another one of my favourite. A peachy pink perfect for summer.

Kae: Unfortunately wasn't happy with the colour as it doesn't look like the orangey brown shade from the packaging. Looks similar to Limbo but a little lighter. But I mixed it with a bit of 'Tulle' as you can tell from the picture below, which gave a shade that looks a little closer to the colour from the packaging of Kae. But great pigmentation.

Limbo: Another one of my favourites. A dark brown shade which is a popular dupe to Kylie's lip kit in the shade 'True Brown K'. Very pigmented as well.

Guess: Pigmentation is not that great, needs more than one coat, but overall love the colour. Great for a dramatic makeup look.

Spring/Summer Lookbook | Tumblr Inspired

Hello everyone, I hope you all are having a great Bank Holiday Monday. I've just uploaded my second video to my Youtube Channel. It's a fashion one this time. I had so much fun filming it and editing it. Please do excuse the lopsided camera position and the bits where my feet and head is cut off. I didn't realise that until I went onto editing it which is annoying #FirstWorldProblems but I still wanted to publish it anyways. I'm still new with this youtube thing, I'll get better with it I promise, just bare with me :) 

Please note, the weather here in England is a little unpredictable at times and we rarely get as much Sun as we want so some of these Spring/Summer outfits are suited for the weather here in the UK. So I’ve put together 3 Casual/everyday outfits and 1 dressy/evening outfit. All of the items worn are highstreet, so definitely affordable. I hope you enjoyed watching this video. Do leave your comments below, would love to read your feedback! All items worn are listed below :)

My First Ever Youtube Video!

Sorry for being away for longer than usual. First is the usual excuses obviously, and second, is that I've been working on something else as you can probably already tell from the title of this blog post. And yes, I have finally managed to pluck the courage to upload a video on youtube after a lot of convincing from friends, family and a few of my followers on twitter and instagram. I do hope you enjoy watching my first youtube video. I had so much fun filming and editing this video.

 I decided to film a brow routine video since I've been receiving comments on how I fill them over the past couple months. I don't fill my brows in this way on an everyday basis. This is how I fill them in for my blog and instagram pictures. All the products used are listed below the video.

And don't forget, if you'd like to see more videos from me, then please subscribe to my Channel. Thank you all for reading/watching and I'll see you all soon!

Products used:

Maybelline Brow Satin Dark Brown

Outfit: Camouflage

Even though we are creeping into the Spring season, I don't think I will ever stop wearing khaki. For me I like to wear neutral colours all year round. So I was shopping on an American online boutique,, a couple days ago after discovering this brand through other beauty/fashion vloggers. Everything they have is so different to what they have in the UK. By the way, the top that I am wearing is actually a dress which I styled as a top. There's nothing wrong with experimenting with clothes right? I then paired it with these taupe leggings that I also got from that online boutique. I have to say, I am obsessed with this camouflage printed dress (or top). Let me know what you think? And let me know if you've ever styled your dresses as a top?

Outfit: Feminine Lace

Here is a slight different outfit from the usual. Normally I do go for plain, simple pieces when it comes to fashion, but whilst shopping online, this nude lace top caught my eye and I realised that I didn't own much lace pieces in my wardrobe, so it was a definite must-purchase item. Not something I would wear during the day, but is perfect for a night out. I am wearing a nude spaghetti vest top underneath which I purchased separately. I paired it with this skirt that I got a long while back so sadly they don't have any more of these in stock. And to finish off, I paired it with simple strappy nude heels. Let me know what you think?

What I'm Wearing
Skirt: Missguided (old) Alternatives here
Heels: Misspap
