Inside my friends make up bag

We all have friends that we know we can chat to about certain stuff, like your guilty pleasures (waves hands in the air- One Direction) or the friend that knows you carry 6 lipsticks in your bag at all times (again waves hands in the air). Well K-Mac (check out her blog HERE) is a great friend that I literally can talk to about anything, however on the top of our chat list is make up. She's just like me and always likes to try out new products and on a regular basis share our views on our most recent purchases. 

I asked her to choose a face of make up out of the collection she had in her bag and here are her top picks:

Benefit You Rebel: Tinted moisturiser , Barry M: Afterglow Light Bronzer , Benefit: Watt's up! , Benefit: Roller Lash , Benefit: Fake up Rimmel blush: Live Pink , Eylure: Brow Palette , Bourjois: 48 hour eyeliner

The first product that I was super intrigued about is the Benefit Fake up. What genius created a concealer stick with a barrier or moisturiser around it? And secondly, why have I only just found out about it. K-Mac sold it to me when she said it's very hydrating and works great even when your skin is crazy dry because of the layer of moisture. I'm sold!

The Eylure Brow Palette is a product I've seen and heard about from quite a lot of people however K-Mac is in love with this and hasn't used anything else for her brows since. I've never used a wax product like this before but her brows are on point so maybe I should give it a go?
Is there anything in K-Macs make up bag that you use or would like to try out? I'm off to buy Fake up..... sounds amazing!



  1. Very intrigued about fake up! I've never seen this product either but suffer from dry skin so may have to give it a whirl.

    I'd love to go through my friends makeup bags and see what they wear - everyone is so different after all!

    1. Exactly! Thats why I thought I'd share the post because everyones make up bag is unique and I love to be nosey. Thanks for stopping by xoxo

  2. I still event tried Benefits' Roller Lash, I know everyone raves about it though so I need to give it a try. Great idea for a post as well, I haven't seen one like this before.


    1. I love Rollerlash and I find it hard to choose what I prefer They're Real or Rollerlash. You must give it a go :) xoxo

  3. This was a really good post. I'm ashamed at the fact that I haven't used any of these products before!

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To 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

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

How To Read More & What I Read In May

*gifted items and affiliate links Hi mates, it's been a while!  So, I've had quite a few requests to create a blog post all about how I read so much. Don't get me wrong there are loads of people out there that read way more than me. But I average 4 books a month, however with lockdown in the UK I've been able to rack up my monthly average.  Let's just jump straight in to how I read as much as I do. 1 ~ Choose books you WANT to read This sounds super obvious, however I myself have been known to follow book trends and pick up a book because it's all over the gram, or because my favourite influencer has told me to read it. Doing so can result in books you just don't get in the flow of reading and books you don't want to actively pick up.  Know what genres you like to read. Know what authors you like and do some digging to make sure you pick wisely. Sometimes you will be disappointed with a book that you feel you should of enjoye
