Sunday Swatches: MAC Snow Ball Holiday Collection

Sunday 29 October 2017

As you may or may not know, MAC have released their holiday collection this week entitled the Snow Ball Collection (available here!) and I have to say it has literally been years since I was last super excited about their Holiday collection.
The last time I was this excited about MAC's holiday collection was the Glitter and Ice Collection here in 2011 and I guess I really am a magpie because yet again, the packaging this year had my eyes all heart eyed, and after I saw the limited edition Whisper Of Gilt highlighter back again, I was sold.

Before I start, this isn't going to be a full review post as usual, I just thought I'd share my trip to MAC on the launch day, my picks, thoughts and a couple swatches I took whilst visiting the store as well as what I purchased from the collection 😍

Sunday Swatches: L'Oreal Matte Addiction Lipsticks

Sunday 8 October 2017

So after my #MatteAddiction campaign at the beginning of this year, I was sent the full 16 Matte Addiction lipsticks in an unexpected lush package that I knew I needed to swatch for my YouTube channel asap!

As you guys may know already if you read my personal blog post about the campaign earlier this year, my shade in the campaign is 633 Moka Chic which is a perfect nude pink for my skintone and pigmented lips (watch it in action on my YouTube here and here).

So many of you lovely followers sent me pictures on instagram/twitter/facebook of your Moka Chic purchases, which really meant a lot to me 💗

The support has been unreal, I'm glad you guys loved my shade and after receiving this package a lot of you requested a swatch post and video, so after months of editing the video on and off, here it is!

Affordable Beauty: Eyelashes - All Under £5

Wednesday 4 October 2017

There's some makeup things in life that you can't afford to scrimp on, but when it comes to eyelashes, I've never really been too comfortable spending anything over £15 for.. and even then I question whether I can get them cheaper because even though they're reuseable, I tend to have to cut off a fair bit to fit the short width of my eyes, which really does hurt sometimes!

Alas, I have scoured a few places to put together an affordable list of eyelashes, most of which suit small eyes like mine and all under £5 🙌🏽
Read on to see what I've found so far..
