1O Day Challenge; Day Nine.

So, I'm finally back to blogging daily or recently, not every 2 weeks haha!
I need to finish this and its day 9, which is nine likes.
This was an easy one to do, I like a lot of things! 
  • Day Nine; Nine Likes.
I like this because its not extra heavy on the face, it looks good with loose powder
and its the perfect color for my skin. My color is 'nude'. This has lasted me since December.
The only thing thats bad is that the pump doesnt work.. but thats my fault!

It looks really thick but its lightweight once on. It looks really dark/orange but it
really matches your skin when you apply it. It also applies good via a brush or hands.

Youtube/you guys KNOW I love this! I cant apply my foundation without it!
Its only £2 but makes my skin feel so smooth and soft without that dewy finish
when I apply this. I dont like a dewy look and I have oily skin, but this is perfect.
The only bad thing? Im running out!

I found this in my local Poundland. Its abour £7 in Boots but I payed £1. I love the brush,
it makes my lashes thick&long but not overly clumpy. Its my everyday mascara now!
It was also my first mascara that I ever bought!

My fave perfume ever! Okay it was only £10.. but, I dont mind if it gets used, because
I can easily pay just £10 to get another one. It smells so so so lovely and
I've hardly used a lot anyway! I got this at Christmas 2011 so it always
reminds me of Christmas! aw.

Everyday essential! I go through stages of loving/hating this. When this is used up
I might try the MUA one, because this one is okay but it smudges.
I could apply this on waterline and top lash line at 9am, then, by 10.30am
my waterline would have a feint line, not as thick as I'd apply it.
Also, the outer corners of my eye, smudge so bad that I get a big black blob there..
Maybe its just my eye but its so annoying! I like the brush it comes with though.

It lasts a long time too! It gets a bit messy haha!

From Savers! I love savers, I also love this bronzer!
I use it all the time, not just summer. I dont really apply blusher because
It doesnt really look right on me.. unless I buy an expensive one but I never
really buy or fuss about blushers.

I love mosaics! This is quite shimmery but doesnt show on the cheeks.

My first ever MAC lipstick! 100% honest though.. I dont see the obsession with MAC.
To be honest, I've used it once and its ok, I like the color but I dont use it everyday.
I will buy more MAC but I wouldnt rush out to buy it. I like the Nicki one though.

It says its a satin finish BUT I actually thought it was matte because
its really drying.

Lots of love..

Step-By-Step ; How I Did My Bath Bombs!

  1. Get all your things together. You need Sodium Bicarb, Cornstarch, Citric Acid, Glycerin,  
  2. You need all your tools like a spoon and something to pack the mix into the mould.
  3. You then need to get coloring's and flavorings. I use blue and red which comes out pink
    if you add a small amount. Using two colors you can make many colors 'cause they're basic.
  4. Use a picnic/plastic spoon or teaspoon. 

  1. Use the spoon to determine the amount you add into your beaker. 
  2. Add the sodium first. 
  3. Im going on measurements to make one bath bomb, so, add 1 spoon
    of the sodium, this will be enough. Its a very thick powder, a lot like flour.

  1. On top of the sodium in the same beaker, add the cornstarch (one spoon). This is the same  consistency of the sodium, but yellow not white.
  2. Use the spoon to mix together, the texture makes me cringe! 
  3. This all blends together, but you wont see a reaction yet!

  1. Then, add 1 spoon of the citric acid.
  2. This is a crystal, hard, product but not a powder. 
  3. Dont add too much, it will ruin it. 
  4. Mix this all in.

  1. This is what it looks like!

  1. Then, add 5 drops of the glycerin! 
  2. Only add 5 at the start because if its too mushy it wont set and
    if its too hard it'll crumble..not as easy as it looks!

  1. Mix this all together, this is what it should look like if you
    make it okay and how the instructions are set.

  1. Add flavorings and coloring's now. 
  2. It will start to fizz as it mixes with the glycerin and powders.
  3. I love this color!

  1. This is a bit toooo mushy, i added a slight extra spoon of the citric acid.
  2. But, it may set ok.

  1. Add them to the moulds.
  2. It kept rising haha!
  3. You can use cookie cutters to mould them into shapes
    if you dont have anything round like this.

  1. Mine kept rising and pouring out the moulds, yours wont!

  1. Makes a slight mess so use an empty space!
  2. This comes off easily though, dont worry!

  1. In the end, you will have something like this.
  2. Dont push or hold them too tight because they will crumble.
  3. If they do crumble, put them in a dish and they will work in the bath still.
  4. They smell really nice too, they work as a pretty gift!
I hope you enjoyed this and this was a response to my video on making them, because you might prefer reading instructions than watching them:)

Lots of love...

DIY: Mini Bath Bombs/Fizzers!

So today is the day I sort my sleep pattern out! Ive been sleeping at 7/8am every morning and waking up at 5pm.. its driving me mad and ive abandoned my blog/youtube because of it!
So today I thought "Hm, I want to do a few blog posts and a youtube video, what can I do?" Then, I remembered that I needed to show you how I make bath bombs/fizzers! I make these all the time and they make pretty gifts and they're sooooo easy to make! So I'll do a step-by-step guide on what I did, and explain how to make them and what I used.

  • Things You Need!
-Citric Acid. 
-Sodium Bicarbonate.  

  • How To Make!
-First, make sure you have a lot of room. 
-Get yourself a beaker&teaspoon. These are all you need really. If you dont have a beaker, a spare container is perfect! 
-Then, apply two spoons of everything, stir that and blend and then add 1 spoon of the citric acid and blend.
-After that, add 5 drops of the should fizz!
-You want the mix to be pasty but not toooo thick.
-Then apply some coloring. Any color is up to you and any flavoring is up to you! Dont go mad, add a reasonable amount of drops because too much will change the consistency. 
-Mix well!
-After, mix into a paste and add into a mould. Any round mould will do, unless you want shapes! A small cookie cutter could be good to use.
-Leave in a hot place for a while, or a nice room temp. 
-Enjoy and watch them fizz in the bath!

..Another Bargain!

Last post of today you lovely lot!
..Best bargain I've ever bought! Couldnt believe it!
I went into my local shop last week, just to pick up some milk and they had a shelf full of things they were getting rid of. I saw these bottles and they're so recognizable, I knew they were Ciate straight away! If im right, these are £9 each.. i got them for £1.50! These were from the Marie Curie magazine from a few months back, now I have them for a small amount! So happy, been wanting Ciate for ages! 
My Fair Lady and Wait Until Dark are the colors and Mum is wearing Wait Until Dark at the moment and its not as purple as it looks, its like a misty purple/brown with shimmer. I need to try My Fair Lady!
So happy with these and they apply really nice and quickly!

Lots of love..

What A Bargain!

I finally found this mascara again! Around 4/5 years ago, I bought this. It was my first mascara I think. I loved it, the brush, everything! It created volume easily and easily comes off. 
I havent seen it on the Collection 2000 stands in ages but the other day in Poundland.. I found it! 
When I bought this it cost £6.. I saved £5! 
Juts thought I'd show you , I love it and its a bargain! Perfect for thick, false looking lashes.

10 Day Beauty Challenge; Eight Dislikes.

Hiya guyssss. 
So second post of today, I need to do this!
..Eight dislikes was a hard/easy one, but I scoured my room to see what things I hardly use!

  • 1O Day Beauty Challenge; Eight Dislikes
  1. Skinology Tea Treet Face Scrub: Now, I hardly use face scrubs or ANYTHING apart from cleanser and obviously makeup on my face. Simple reason is, Im really oily without loose powder and face products make me SO oily! I tried this out because I saw it in my bath/beauty box and thought I should try it out because it smelt lovely. I remember getting this from Wilkinson for £1 and I got the face wash with it too, for also £1. So, I applied it and it wasnt even like a scrub. Nothing like the Soap&Glory one I have, so I washed it off straight away.. pointless if you ask me! Ill use it up, not to waste but wouldnt bother getting it again.. made my face really oily and the only thing I liked was the scent. Rubbish!
  2. MUA Green Eyeliner; Pointless. I wouldnt use this anytime or anywhere for anything, only for Halloween, which I dont even bother with anyway. I dont like the MUA eyeliners so the green color doesnt help. Ill have to think of something to do with it.. 
  3. Impulse: Popstar; Im sad about this. I LOVE body sprays. Quick, simple scent. This one is pure letdown. I smelt this the first time and bought it because it was really nice. After using it a few times, its really strong and heavy scented, with no nice scent.. It smells really cheap so, I dont like it.
  4. Soap&Glory; Sexy Mother Pucker: Dont like it. Never have! Its gloopy, sticky, thick etc. I hate the tingling thing it does, its really horrible! I had no choice over this and didnt actually buy it, it came in the £60 boxset. Hardly used it..
  5. MUA Eyebrow pencil in BLONDE; Cant get along with this. Its not even my color -oops!- It runs out SO quick and doesnt stay sharp, it looks like you've colored in your eyebrows.. dont like it. 
  6. MUA Green glitter eyeliner; Dont like it, dont need it. Its not even strong anyway, its hardly glittery! Its just like water. 
  7. No7 nail polish; Never liked this. Its one of them boring hot pink colors anyway, I have too many of these. I dont like the brush and the actual polish is really gloopy.

Lots of love..

10 Day Beauty Challenge; Seven Polishes.

Hey Guys! I can only but apologize for not being here for 2/3 weeks. My camera battery ran out and ive been a bit  forgetful to actually get them. In all honesty, there hasnt been much to post anyway, only a few things that ive got to show you now. Ill be posting from now on anyway, I bought lots of batteries today!
So Day7 of this is; 7 Nail polishes. Didnt really know what to do for this one, so I decided to do my fave brand and my collection on that brand? This is the largest collection I have of a brand, so it HAD to be these! I LOVE BarryM anyway so..!
  • Day Seven; Seven Nail Polishes.
So this is my fave brand and my collection of them. My fave color in my collection has to be the last one on the right. Its a lilac color and its so pretty. I wear this quite often and it doesnt chip until 4/5 days.
In order L-R these are the shade numbers;
-296 CORAL
The one I dislike most probably is the pink one. I have a lot of colors like this, its boring. 
They all apply so well so I love Barry M and for the price - £2.99 - you really cant go wrong! ..and they last ages!

Lots of love..

1O Day Beauty Challenge; Day Five.

September 5! Today is 5 tips. This is quite hard, but quite easy because Im just going on what I know and what tips I use. I dont really go by beauty tips or whatever, I just go day to day on what works best. Im not a pro and im certainly not amazing at makeup application. But, I love it so.. ill try!

  • Day Five: Five Tips.
  1. Okay so.. first one!
    Simple! I always use this tip. Its the most easiest/boring tip. Always apply dark eyes with feint lips or heavy, vampy lips with light eye makeup. This way, you dont look overdone/drag queen. 
  2. Next one.
    Always match your blush with lip color. I never do this, but its a really good tip! Always use the right formula for blush though, depending on skin. ( Powder is typically best for oily and combo skin. Cream is great for dry skin. Liquid and gel are great for oily skin.). 
  3. Im stuck on tips now aha! 
    Okay so.. maybe to use a good cleanser/moisturizer no matter what the cost because your skin is important and this prevents spots. Always cleanse 2/3 times a day. 
  4. If you want bigger eyes, so less narrow looking, aim for a colored eyeliner. If youre not into blues/greens, go for a grey or a slate color. Because black narrows the eyes.
  5. If you want bigger looking lips then  Grab a colorless lip balm with shimmer, and apply it to the skin just above your cupid's bow — the area below your nose and between the peaks of your top lip. Adding light to that area creates the illusion of larger lips. I dont have this problem because my lips are  quite large!
So I hope these tips were okay. Like I say, im not a pro but I hope these helped. 
Lots of love..

MUA Wishlist - September 2O12.

MUA Wishlist - September 2O12.

So I thought I would post my MUA wishlist for September as I dont ever do this and have seen a few blogs do this recently and it seems like a good idea to let you guys know what products im on the lookout for and  will pick up over the coming weeks. Im trying to find a saturday job as im only 15 and really need so much more money to spend. The wallet of mum&dad is running dry! (im only messing).

  • So im going to start with the MUA Professional trio. This one i especially want because you can do alot of things with these trio's and this one especially. This one is good for smoky eye or just a normal autumn look. You can create a lot of looks with this because its light&dark so you can do day and night looks. Ive seen a lot of reviews and it looks pretty on.. so.. I might buy this soon. I think this one is called Innocence. For £2.50 you really, really..cannot go wrong!
  • Next one, the MUA blushers. Ive seen mixed reviews. I need to buy a simple blush soon as mine arnt that good and I need a revamp in my collection. I want to try some MUA blushers because the shades look pretty, but, many people have said they dont appear well etc. Ill have to test for myself! They look very small, they are £1 so this is probably why. 
  • Next! The MUA bronzers. OMG! The design of the bronzer is so good! I expected to see just a brown bronzer pan when they said they were bringing out bronzers, but Im made up! Its a good design and is really tempting to buy. I think this will add a nice glow and contour. I havent seen any reviews on this as im just going to buy it and judge for myself. I love bronzer at any time of the year.
  • I need this next one! It got announced today and I was OMG'ing for about 30 minutes hahaha! A lot of people have been requesting this on Facebook&Twitter.. now they've created one! Its a brow palette and I need one of these. My brows are boring and theres no shape to my face. I was actually going to ask mum to buy me a HD brows palette the other day.. and now for only £3.50 MUA have created one! I dont know when this is out in shops but you can have a look on Facebook. I hope this lives up to expectation because it looks good.. but will it create the perfect brow? Ill be the first to buy!
  • Next one that got announced today and I OMG'ed about is the 'Nail Constellations' these look amazing! Im going to buy all of these as they're all so cheap and they look amazing to apply! Pretty NOTW here I come!
  • Last one is the Intense Kisses glosses. These shades look pretty and im tempted to try the pink ones a lot. These are only £2. 
So I hope you enjoyed this.
Who else wants any of these?
..might do a shop soon!;-)
Lots of love..

1O Day Beauty Challenge; Day Four.

September 4! Its not really been like 'September' these past few days, its been hot&sunny.. erm.. its autumn?! In summer we didnt have many hot days?! Todays post is 'four used' this is easier than the past few days as I have a few used products that have been used this week. These will appear in my next empties video and my next empties post. Writing this, I realised that I dont post my empties or favorites on here.. ooooops! Ill remember next time. 

  • Day Four: Four Used.
So these are used, I always get these from Tesco each time I go. I think they're about £1.10 and they're just the perfect everyday wipe. They're better than any branded ones in my opinion and remove my eye makeup and face makeup in about 3/4 wipes. They're actually wet, whereas some £5 ones are not even wet at all. I love them.
I always get this from shopping too, its £1 and is the perfect roll on. It keeps me fresh all day and I love the scent. I like all soft&gentle ones. 

I always get one of these when I dye my hair. I love the cheapness and Maria Fowler from TOWIE even uses this! When I dyed my hair red, this always kept the redness and didnt make it brassy. They come in brown/red and blonde. I dyed my hair brown recently so I bought one. Tesco/boots etc do them. Even if you dont dye your hair, they bring out your natural color and make it super soft. Only £1!

Omg. Amazing. Love it. -This just sums it up! I might just review this on its own because I dont want to go toooo into detail on this, but its amazing. I love how it leaves my hair smooth, soft and straightens perfectly when I use this. I used this in about 1 month and a half (sharing with mum). When I saw the advert I didnt quite believe it was 'nutri gloss' and all the good things they said about it, but really, its all true. Shame its empty, I will be buying again one day, but not too soon. 

So they're my Four Used products for todays post! 
Lots of love..
