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

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips 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

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
