My love for lip pencils


Keeping along the same lines as Mondays post with the old 'longer lasting' make-up thing, I'm so into using lip pencils as my liner and full lipstick colour because of that reason. I've narrowed it down to the ones I use the most and find the best results from.

Rimmel: I have two lip pencils I always go to when I need them. One being 'Red Dynamite ' which is your typical bright red, and the other called 'Spice' which is a pinky brown. The formula for both is soft, a little rough and a little bit of dragging along the lips which is ok and I can deal with. They are so long lasting and I've gone through three of the 'Spice' shades because I love it that much. The 'Red Dynamite' is a very close match to MAC 'Cherry' lip liner but a tad less expensive! Overall the Rimmel lip pencils are a good price for a product that stands up to the tests with pretty good results.

NYX: This was found in a random make up sale in an outlet store and decided to grab it because I hadn't got a pink like this in my collection *perfect reason behind the purchase. A lot more of a softer formula than the Rimmel pencils and the shade is a gorgeous bubblegum pink colour, perfect for any girlie girl. Being a softer formula I feel this is the reason as to why this pencil isn't as long lasting as others I own. Don't get me wrong, it's still longer lasting than some lipsticks however easy to smudge by accident and seems to fade on the lips easier. 

Purminerals: TKMaxx is an awesome shop, full stop and its where I picked up this bad boy. A near enough perfect match to the very sort after Kylie Jenner 'Soar' lip liner but with a £1.99 price tag. The twist up end broke within the first half an hour of buying it which isn't ideal however persisting with it I can manage to get a small amount out, enough to apply there and then anyway. This has the softest formula and the easiest application of them all. Very minimal drag on the lips and with a brush on the other end you are able to drag and smudge the product over the lips because its that soft.. 

Are you a fan of lip pencils? Do you bother with them? Have you used any of these?

Happy hump day!
xoxo

Dreamland For Spring/Summer 2019 - Press Trip

It's that time of year again, DREAMLAND is open for business! I get so many questions about Margate and DREAMLAND in particular, so why not do another post for you. 

As a South Kent girl through and through, this place has a special place in my heart. Full of nostalgia, and pride of what it's like now. 
You may or may know that I've actually created two blog posts already from DREAMLAND, but wanted to give you a little update on it. I also played around with my camera and a new setting so it's a bit of experimenting too haha. 
Shall we?

Lets get the disclaimer out the way if you didn't catch it in the top right corner. I was invited to the park on this day as press, so received a free wristband, food and drink tokens. I wasn't asked to create a blog post in any way, but I always like to as you guys like it and its such a fun place to photograph. 

Now on to DREAMLAND:
I can't describe how much fun I always have when I visit this place. On this day pictured, it was…

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day!

I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine.

Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down.

What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the Yes To Cucumber range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try! 



It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a pretty amazing vegetable when it comes to yo…

Hi, hey, how are ya?

It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know. 
So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that). 
Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips. 
Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products I use on a rotation and not all at the same time. My skin enjoys it when it swap aroun…
