As we're so close to the end of 2014, I thought it was about time I shared the products I've been loving this year. I really enjoy reading and watching people's favourites each month, it's great for getting good product recommendations and I find the reviews more reliable than initial ones as the products have actually been used for a good period of time.
I made my first trip to Lidl this week, and to say I was impressed would be an understatement! after filling my basket with all the chocolate, biscuits and cider I could carry, I spied a beauty bargain I just could not resist.
So something very exciting happened on Thursday, I went to the BBC Music Awards to perform as part of a choir! I was there from 10:30am til 10pm and spent most of my time backstage, which was amazing! I actually bumped into One Direction on my way out of the loos, and I was so shocked I didn't even say hello or get a photo which I'm kicking myself for now!
Bronzer and Illuminator, £7.99 (here)
This was part of the BBB Dream Box 2 and I've been loving using it so far, so I thought I would share a little review with you guys! As you can see, it's a bronzer and highlighter in one, which is really convenient and useful for carrying around with you.
Bourjois elegance gift-free with any £15 purchase
I was out doing some Christmas shopping a few days ago when I saw this fantastic deal. I was meaning to pick up some beauty bits for my mum as a present, so I picked her up a couple of things and treated myself to the free gift that came with it!
I've seen post on this topic on multiple blogs now, so I thought I would make a quick video about it myself! I've worn makeup since around the age of 13/14 and over the years my reasons for doing so have definitely changed, although I've always mainly done it because I love being creative with how I look and experimenting with colour.
If you watch my videos, you'll know I typically stick to more lighthearted things, such as makeup tutorials or hauls, so it was quite nice to break away from that and discuss something for a change! I'm really interested to know what you guys think about this, and why you wear makeup so please share your thoughts and opinions below!
Aqua Seal-£3 (here)
Cappuccino eye shadow single-£1 (here)
I Want U eye shadow single-£1 (here)
Confront eye dust-£1 (here)
Agonise eye dust-£1 (here)
I won a giveaway a few weeks ago and this little bundle of makeup revolution products was the prize! If you've been reading my blog over the past few weeks, you'll know I've recently got my hands on two of the Salvation palettes, which I really love, so I was excited to try out the single eye shadows and dusts. As well as the eye shadows I won the aqua seal, which is a liquid primer. as it's such a watery formula I was really excited to try it and see how I got on!
Lola lipstick in Strawberry Fields-£12 (here)
I have to say, this is definitely up there as one of my favourite things that was included in the recent BBB dream box 2! Lola is a brand that I hadn't really heard of before this, and after trying this lipstick I'm definitely keen to see what else they have to offer. The shade of lipstick I have is Strawberry Fields and it's from the intense colour range.
Hard Day palette*-£6 (here)
I am seriously loving the Makeup Revolution salvation palettes right now, and the latest to join my collection is the hard day palette which is perfect for creating a range of smokey eyes for a night out! The range of colours in the palette makes it easy to choose between a gorgeous subtle look or something more dramatic.
