Lush | Haul

One shop I have to go into everytime I'm near is Lush, I love everything in it and it smells so good and plus 40% of the products a glittery so that's definitely a bonus. So I thought it'd be a good idea to do a little lush tag and show what I picked up for Easter and the stuff I already have and love.

So first are a few bits pi picked up from the Easter collection, 
- Pot o'Gold, this actually smells divine, it smells like butterscotch and that's a beautiful smell 
- Golden Egg, I haven't actually used this yet but I do love a bit of a glittery bath and if its anything like sparkles pumpkin, we're good
- Bunch of Carrots, I have actually used some of this and I did not expect it to make the amount of bubbles it did, would definitely reccommend 
- Hoppity Poppity, also not used this yet but I'm expecting big things after all the santas I used at Christmas 
- Easter Egg, I am a big fan of the dragon egg bath bomb, it was actually the first lush product I tried so I'm hoping this is the same but pink 
- Rose Bubblebar, this smells beautiful, I've started putting it on my desk when revising to encourage me, very excited to try
- Immaculate Eggception Pink, how exciting is a bath bom that has two more bathbombs in it! Very exciting in my world so that's why I picked that one up

A few of my fave classics would be the Mask of Magniminty, it clears my skin up literally in like a day, if you've had a bit of a exam stress breakout like me, I would seriously reccommend you use this, they half in size after one use. Whoosh shower jelly is also a must during exam period, it smells so fresh and really help wake you up, plus it's really interesting because it's a jelly and I love that. Another love of mine are bubble bars in general, every single one smells beautiful.

What I'm not happy about though it's that when you order Lush online, they've stopped sending the clear bags, but that's my only complaint.

Best Eye-Liner's for Winged Looks | Review

One of my biggest problems is getting the right eyeliner for winged eyes. Winged eyeliner is one of my favourite makeup looks for every day and it can seriously be so easy so this post is just a little review on each of my favourite eyeliner pens incase anyone else is having the same problem I had.

1) Bourjois Mega Liner in Ultra Black - this one is the one I find myself reaching for the most often, the tip isn't the normal eyeliner pen tip, it is sort of like a highlighter and this one last so long and is really easy to apply, however for a while I found it hard to get that perfect point on the end of this because of the shape of the nib.

2) L'oréal Super Liner Perfect Slim - the overall colour of this comes out slightly grey but still a good liner if you want the thin subtle line and really easy to create the pointed flick, for a very long time I used this in combination with the Bourjois to get that jet black line with a even point. 

3) Benefit They're Real Push-Up Liner - I've never had an eyeliner so different as the push-up liner, it actually took me half a year to be able to use it but when you get to grips with it, it's your best friend, except when you're trying to get it off, it just doesn't want to leave you face. But really good for long wear and making a prominent line. 

4) Smashbox Limitless Liquid Liner Pen - My all time favourite eyeliner. I've never loved an eyeliner more, but because it's so expensive and running out I'm trying not to use it as much :(. It's so easy to use and always looks perfect and literally takes like 5 seconds per eye. 

5) Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner - this is basically a pretty good dupe of the Smashbox one, it glides on really easy even though the tip does runout quite quick so be sure to use the side

I thought I'd try this sort of blog since I've never done it before, let me know what you thought

The Past Two Weeks

For once, I've actually been pretty busy the past couple of weeks, I've gone to parties, had work, had mocks, college so I'm feeling pretty productive about everything right now, but of course I'm going to crash and burn soon so I thought I'd share a few things in picture form that have been going on during to explain why I've been awol on my blog. 

So basically I've been to 2 parties, shopping, got a new coat, working, finished an amazing book ( to come soon ) and a cheeky look at the lush Easter range all while having consecutive mocks.
