Battle of the liquid lipsticks

Image
Hello everyone,

As of right now everyone seems to love the whole liquid lipstick hype, myself included, but the question is with so many now on the market which ones truely are the best?!

I've picked five of my most worn liquid lipsticks from my collection to review today. These lipsticks range from as little as £3 to around £30, so I think it's fair to say that there's one for everyone no matter your budget.


NYX lingerie liquid lipstick in shade lace detail/ 03


colour - pale pinkie nude
This liquid lipstick, is quite thick in consistency and once applied, feels more like a velvet/swade lipstick, however it dries down to a thin and matte consistency. The longevity of this lipstick is fairly good it last around 4-5 hours, However it does wear off after eating. This lipstick fades nicely and doesn't leave the dreaded ring around the lips.
Overall, I would highly recommend the NYX liquid lipsticks, however these are not my favourite formula out of the 5 I have selected…

Travel beauty essentials

Hello everyone,

Summer is definitely the season of travel, and with that in mind I thought I would let you all know what I will be taking as my beauty essentials to Cuba this month.
My summer beauty essentials generally consist of products I can rely on and know they will perform well in warm and humid conditions.



TRESemme conditioner - This is a pretty standard beauty essential, but I thought I'd mention it as it is important to purchase a conditioner that can withstand and tame humid and frizzy hair whilst on vacation. This conditioner from TRESemme is one of my favourites, as it really helps to smooth and moisturise the hair.
you can purchase your TRESemme conditioner - Here
Brazilian Keratin smoothing therapy treatment oil/ natural world  -  This is my favourite hair oil to tame my frizzy hair, and it is a must have for humid conditions. I've been through 3 bottles of this now and I absolutely love it! You can purchase your Brazilian Keratin smoothing therapy treatment …

Travelling with scoliosis

Hello everyone,

This month I am travelling abroad, for the first time since my surgery. I'm so excited, but at the same time I am a tad bit nervous. I really don't want to burn my scar or set off the security body scanners in the airport with the metal in my back. As minor as my worries may seem I think it's mainly because I don't want anything to go wrong when I have come so far with virtually no problems at all!
But, my worries are exactly why I wanted to write this blog post. I wanted to share, how I prepared to travel, after spinal fusion surgery. It can be quite daunting. However, it doesn't have to be.
Hopefully I can share some of my tips and tricks for a stress free vacation.




1) Pack a high factor sun cream for your scar.

Scar tissue is essentially fragile skin which, with too much exposure to sunlight can be further damaged and become more noticeable, so moral to the story pack that high factor sun cream!
I'm not saying that you need to hide your sca…

Makeup Revolution brow pomade - review

Image
Hello everyone,

July was beauty month on my blog, so I hope you all enjoyed it. I have an extra beauty post today. I really wanted to review the makeup revolution brow pomade, as I've always looked at the brow pomades but never purchased one, ive always stuck to brow pencils as I find them quick and easy to use, but I thought I'd branch out seem as everyone is always talking about them.

I had no idea what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised by this product. It was easy to use, affordable and the perfect shade for my eyebrows. The product is long lasting and smudge proof.



The product comes in a box, with a double ended eyebrow brush, which is actually pretty good and does the job nicely. The pomade comes in a glass pot and a plastic lid which screws on tightly to help stop it from drying out quickly. The packaging overall is simple yet effective.


The shades are ashy tones, preventing your eyebrows from appearing orange, which is always a good thing! The product is very p…
