Bourjois | Makeup Bag Additions

Recently I haven't bought as much makeup as I usually do I think I've been investing a lot more into skin care and my skin has improved so much. There were a few bits that I was running low on and needed to update though, as no matter how much makeup you seem to have you're always in need of something. These two products are ones I've been testing and loving and have added to my makeup bag essentials, which both happen to be from Bourjois.

The first item I was in need of was a new foundation and I am really bad with sticking with my usual foundation and not venturing to far out but I knew this time I really wanted to try a new one. I normally like the quality of Bourjois products and I liked the sound of their Healthy Mix foundation so I though that I would pick it up. It says that it contains lots of vitamins like C, E and B5 which sounds like it would be good and not heavy for your skin and also says that it is anti-fatigue, which is something that I really need. I love really fresh and glowy foundations and after testing it out for a few weeks I can say that it does make your skin look more awake and fresh, covering dark circles and imperfections. It's very lightweight and you don't need much product to cover all of your face which is good, it's easily build-able as well and I think it's a perfect foundation for any occasion and I've not tested the longevity specifically but I haven't had any problems with it coming off for a variation of periods that I have had it on for.

The second product I've been testing and loving is also from Bourjois, it's the Volume Reveal waterproof mascara. I don't normally invest in mascara and I normally just use anything that's cheap and cheerful, I'm not normally fussy, but I decided I'd try a new one out and see what I think. This mascara brush is very long and straight and it doesn't really curve but I think it works well because it doesn't. The formulation is very consistent and drys quick when applied to lashes, it doesn't clump and even if it does it's easy to fix as it's very smooth. The thing I find very helpful is the mirror on the side which is magnifying and helpful for application. I have nothing bad to say about it, which means overall it's one of my favourite mascaras.

I love both of these products and I would buy them again if I ran out as I think they're high quality products for not a ridiculous amount of money.

Has anyone ever tried these before? What do you think?

Metamorphosis Lush Bath Bomb | Review

It's been a long time since I've gone into Lush and actually bought a new bath bomb. I don't have a lot of baths anymore but I know coming into winter there's going to be a lot more time for them. I'd seen all the new bath bombs on Lush's social media and I've been meaning to go in and buy one for a while. I picked up Metamorphosis as I really liked the name and how plain the bath bomb is on the outside. Yet, hence the name there is obviously more to the bath bomb than first perceptions.

To me, on the outside the bath bomb looks a bit like a pine cone with the same consistency, I know I'm awful at comparisons. It's very coarse and rough and smells spicy, but not overwhelming. I'm not too sure if it's meant to look like something or not but maybe it is meant to be some sort of shell of some sort for the metamorphosis to take place.

Once dropped into the bath it fizzes instantly int a dark and swirling black hole, leaving the bath a grey and murky colour, not the most appealing bath I must say.

As it fizzes after a minute or two you begin to notice colours start to fizz out and the metamorphosis begin. The colours turn from grey to yellow, then pink, and orange making your bath more colourful than expected. The bright colours clash with the dullness that was perviously there and I like the idea. It doesn't add that much colour overall into your bath though as eventually it all fades back into the murky swampy grey, so the colours don't last too long. I'd say this bath bomb would be a perfect bath bomb for children as they wouldn't be expecting the colours in the middle.

It's not my favourite Lush bath bomb as it doesn't have the strongest or nicest smell but I like the concept and the name but I don't think I'd use it again unless it was a gift as it left my bath a little grey-er than it was before.

Have you tried this bath bomb before? What do you think?

Starbucks and Scarves | Outfit

It's officially Autumn which means it's all things cute and cosy season, and I'm so excited to throw on jumpers and scarves over everything! I also had my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the year, and it was as amazing as I remember it! I felt like I was looking very Autumnal the other day and thought I'd post an outfit post! It's a little weird that I took pictures infront of people for once but the lanes looked cute so I didn't do it at a backdrop for once.

I got the scarf in Primark (Penneys) and I love scarves they're actually the best thing about the winter months, although I don't think it's quite cold enough yet, but it's getting there. My yellow/Mustard-y jumper is also from Primark and it's one of the softest jumpers I own honestly think I'm going to live in it over the Autumn/Winter. My denim jacket is from New Look, it's not time enough yet to whip out the fur-lined ones. I'm also getting excited to wear boots and fluffy socks out even though I'll look like some sort of Eskimo.

Are you as excited for Autumn fashion as I am? What will you be wearing over the next few months?

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Liquid Lipcolor | Review

It's been a long time since I have bought any new liquid lipsticks, I went through a phase of buying too many and had to stop, but I think it's time to start all over again. I love Revlon lipsticks, they're probably my favourite, such high quality and high colour payout so I think it would be about time that I try some of their liquid lipsticks. I know these are quite new and I've been eyeing them up for ages and now I'm here to review them.

The first lipcolor I got was 600 HD Devotion which is my favourite. It's a dark enough pink nude and applies like a dream. The formulation is quite thick and very easily applied. It smells amazing though, it's like the best smelling lipcolor I own, it even tastes as it smells even though I don't advise eating it. It smells a little like vanilla I'm not sure if that's what it's meant to smell like or not. The packaging is also different than normal liquid lipsticks, the packaging is more oval than round and I think it's sleek looking. The colour stays on your lips very well, I wouldn't say that it lasts an overwhelming amount of time but it is quite good. The texture is non drying and I don't find it tiring on the lips to wear which is one of the best parts, plus I just love this colour.

The second shade I got is 610 HD Addiction which is a plum berry purple shade which is a little darker in the tube then on my lips. I thought it was a perfect transition colour into Autumn/Winter. I also love this colour but this one fades a lot quicker than the other one but it could just be that it's more noticeable because of the darker colour. I also feel like this one smells more like cherries but I think I could be imagining a lot of things.

The above swatches are of 600 HD Devotion and 610 HD Addiction.

I do really love these liquid lipsticks and I hope to buy a few more of the darker shades for winter as I think they're a lot more viable than a darker lipstick. I would highly recommend these and would love to know if anyone else has tried these before?
