Can you believe we are almost in September? I'm so ready for Christmas and Christmas gift sets.
With September brings a new payday and I am ready to treat myself to some new make up. Here is a list of things I cannot wait to and hopefully pick up in September.
The fact it's September and I STILL don't have Naked Heat from Urban Decay. The colours are something I would use all the time and, I've heard nothing but amazing things about this palette. This will be the first thing I pick up on payday. I am ready to play with this and create some beautiful looks.
I tried this in July as my SIL had it and I used it when we where getting ready to go out and I fell in love. I have always loved Benefits concealers but, this Boi-Ing Airebrush Concealer is just amazing. I have really bad under eyes and this covered them. I cannot wait to finally get my own and probably go through many pots of it.
Can you ever have too many eyebrow products?
I love Benefit Gimme Brow and I was so excited when I heard they released an ombre Foolproof Bow Powder. Shade 5 looks like the perfect colour for my eyebrows and I love doing my eyebrows so the front doesn't look to dark so, I think this would be perfect for me.
Okay, so this isn't just one product it's an entire collection.
Have you see the Kiko Fall 2.0 Collection?! As soon as I saw this picture on their website I knew I needed these products. I probably won't be able to get them all (cry) but, I am going to try and get a few pieces as the packaging is beautiful and they all look so good. I've never tried Kiko and I cannot wait to try these new products.
As soon as I saw these on the Soap&Glory website I new I had to have them. There are three shades of the Spectaculips Matte-allic and I need all three. They look so creamy and beautiful.
I am in dire need of new brushes and I've had my eyes on some Girls With Attitude brushes for awhile. They have some beautiful collections and this set, the Fairytale Collection Eye Blending Set, is perfect. I love the style and designs of them. You can never have to many eyeshadow brushes.
So, what are you wanting to pick up in September?
Recently I have been loving the Stay Matte Liquid Lipstick by Rimmel.
I have been wearing this a lot lately and I can't get over how amazing it is. Long lasting, feels like nothing on my lips and the shade is just so beautiful.
Really easy to apply, only takes a few coats and then it dries down automatically. It is kiss proof and when I wore it from 7am to 6pm the other day I didn't need to re-apply. I had pizza and everything, it didn't smudge and that is when I fell in love with it.
They have a range of shades. The shade I currently have is Pink Blink and the colour is just so pretty and really perfect for summer. I cannot wait to get all the other shades as the formula for this is one of the best I've ever tried and for £5.99 you cannot be mad at that price.
Have you tried it yet?
~I was sent these products in exchange for a review-all opinions are my own~
This week I was sent a beautiful package from Lizzie over at Wardley's Gifts. This was a little package she put together for me to review. Before I get into what was in the package here is a bit of a background on Wardley's Gifts.
'Founded in December 2016, the New Year brought new beginnings for Wardley’s as it decided to take on the family name for the business, and make history!
It has always been the dream of Wardley’s to open a shop selling the finest gifts and the most beautiful trinkets you could find – and we were determined to make this dream a reality.
Launching Wardley’s with a humble ‘pop-up’ shop - made of MDF and hand painted with love – we first started attending local events in Lancashire, our home county. Putting all our focus and energy into every event, we found ourselves so busy with enquiries and met so many fabulous people who loved our gifts - we knew we needed to expand!
By summer 2017, we decided to go national and launched a website to allow the UK and beyond to enjoy the carefully selected, bespoke gifts and products you will never find anywhere else. Lovingly chosen with key trends in mind, our keepsakes, sentimental gifts, jewellery and lifestyle products are all unique and special – just like our customers.
We’re always looking ahead and are now busy planning to open a retail shop in 2018 which will be based in Lancashire, so watch this space!'
I love checking out the website. It is set out really nicely and easy to get around. I like that it isn't too in your face. The colours are nice and simple but, makes the website look so beautiful. They sell a range of things from mugs to stationary to keepsakes to wedding items! It has a range of everything you could think of and so many amazing gifts that I know where I'm going to get my Christmas presents this year....I just know my friend would love the I Woke Up Like This mug.
So, my package came beautifully wrapped with different colour tissue paper and I felt bad for ripping it.
So, the first thing I looked at was the little black bag which held the most beautiful necklace. It is a Druzy necklace and I have never owned one of these but now I'm so happy I have one. It is so pretty, purple is my favourite colour as well, on a gold chain and it is the perfect length.
Next was a set of cards, I didn't want to open it because they where wrapped so nicely and it looked so pretty. There where 3 cards in the set an Engagement card, You Rule greeting card and Crack Open The Bubbly Greeting Card. The engagement card is so cute and I love the colours and how it is a cute keepsake one and the other two are so simple but so pretty. Not too in your face and I really like the design on all of them.
Last, wrapped up within the package was a cute little notebook. If you are like me then stationary is a great thing. I have so many notebooks and I just love getting more. I really like this one as it is the perfect size to put in my bag and take with me when I go to work or just out. It says Amazing Plans on the front and I am ready to fill it with amazing plans.
So, all in all Wardley's Gifts is amazing. They have everything you could possibly need for gifting on the website. It is easy to navigate and I can't recommend this shop enough. I cannot wait to buy some things and gift them....or possibly keep them for myself.
A big thank you to Lizzie for gifting me this package, I love every single bit.
What do you think of Wardley's Gifts?
If you know me, you know I adore Tanya Burr's make up range. It is some of the best I've ever used and it's really pigmented and her hightlighters are blinding! I really like the Christmas range she's brought out this year. The design is gorgeous and I just know I'm going to pick up everything.
Tanya Burr 12 Sweet Days Calendar - £30 - Currently £20 on Superdrug and I really like the look of what's in it. It's not too expensive and you get some really cute stuff.
Tanya Burr Beauty and the Feast - £50 now £40 - I adore this. The packaging is cute and you get quite a few things inside of it. From matte lipsticks, to eyeshadows to highlighters! For 40 and you're getting 7 items and two of them are exclusive I, just can't wait to get this and it is top of my list!
Tanya Burr A Season To Sparkle Day Palette - £16 now £14 - A cute palette that I think would be great to wear Christmas day. It has the right amount of sparkle.
Tanya Burr Sweet Lip Creams - £9 now £7 - Two matte lipsticks for £7? Yes please.
Tanya Burr Glow Du Coco- £10 now £8 - A lipstick, bronzer and highligter. Great to travel with and I might have already ordered this.
Tanya Burr Jingle and Mingle Night Palette - £18 now £16 - I love how she has done a day and night palette. Some really great colours in this palette.
Tanya Burr Velvet Vanille Eau De Toilette - £18 now £14 - £14 isn't too bad for a perfume. I'm quite excited to see what it smells like.
Tanya Burr Lucky Penny - £5 now £4 - Everyone needs a lip balm in their bag.
Tanya Burr A Little Pick Me Up - £14 now £12 - I love this. It's really cute and you can reuse the bag. I think it would make a nice stocking filler.
Tanya Burr Tip Top Treats - £9 now £7 - Another great stocking filler. Some great sparkle for your nails.
Tanya Burr Tip Top Treats - £9 now £7 - Another set and I love that there is two different versions and both are oh so pretty.
So, what do you love from this collection? To be honest, I think she's done great. I probably might leave the nail polishes only because I hardly wear it but, I feel like my collection wouldn't be complete. I am excited to try the palettes and the matte lipsticks!
Okay, I am super excited for Christmas. All the gift sets and ranges are getting announced and I am ready to buy them all and, one that I am so excited about is the Zoella Christmas range.

What is your favourite from the Christmas range?
So, it was payday last Friday and we got a new eyeshadow palette in work and as soon as they where put out I knew I had to get one. The palette is the Magnif-eyes Eye Contouring Palette in Smoke. I also picked up the mascara everyone has been raving about lately, Paradise from L'Oreal.
This palette is gorgeous. I decided to go for the smoke one as I just adore these colours. I decided to test them out and I was not disappointed. They are really pigmented and blend really nicely. You can not go wrong with a smokey eye.
I had high hopes for the mascara and they exceed them. Everyone has been raving about it and I just knew I had to give it a try. My eyelashes are tiny, I'm rather jealous of my boyfriend who has really long eyelashes so, I usually wear false eyelashes. This mascara made them look long and fuller and I love it. It is definitely my go to mascara at the moment!
I really enjoyed creating this look and didn't want to take it off at the end of the day. The colours just pop and the mascara is just amazing.
If you are looking for a new palette and mascara I can't recommend these enough! I cannot wait to get the other Magnif-eyes palettes!
Recently I bought the Glow It! Highlighting Palette from GWA (Girls With Attitude) they are one of my favourite eyelashes brand and I've always wanted to try their make up and I thought, why not try their highlighting palette first?! Everyone loves a good highlight.
These swatches do not do these highlighters any justice. They are so creamy and this is from one swatch?! From light to dark there is something for everyone and the light one is also perfect for the inner corner of your eye.
These highlighters are insanely beautiful and bright. After one swipe on my cheek I was in love. I am that person who likes their highlight blinding and this is blinding. You can build it up as much as you'd like.
I can't recommend this enough. A nice little range and they are super pigmented.
I cannot wait to get more from GWA make up range and of course, pick up more of their lashes.
The other day I saw that QVC had a great deal on for the Radiance From The Rainforest 6 piece set from Tarte and I knew I had to get it. The rainforest foundation has been something I have been dying to try for ages and I was so excited when it came through the post. I decided to try it all, with some extra pieces, to see what it was actually like.
The set includes: Rainforest Of The Sea Water Foundation, Lights Camera Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara with Opening Act Lash Primer on the end of the Mascara, LipSurgence Power Pigment in the shade Pink Coral, Amazonian Clay Silk Eyeliner, Sculptor Contouring Face Slenderizer, Blush Brush and a make up bag.
I got the foundation in the shade Light Fair Neutral. It is a little bit dark for me but I can work with that as the coverage is amazing and it went so nicely on my face. I didn't need many drops and I am really impressed. I quickly did my eyebrows with Make Up Revolution eyebrow palette and a Kat Von D Concealer under my eyes and then used the contour stick to contour. The colour is a great colour for me. I used the brush to blend it in and it blends amazingly. For my eyes I just used the eyeliner on the outside of my lid and blended and then used the primer and mascara. I really like the mascara, my eyelashes always look tiny with mascara on but, I really like how this made them look fuller and didn't clump.
To finish of the look I added some Tanya Burr highlighter and then used the LipSurgence on my lips. Pink Coral is a beautiful colour and it brought the look together.
And this is the finished look. I absolutely love every piece in this set. Can you believe I've never used Tarte before and this is my first time trying their products? Yep, me neither. I have always wanted to try the shape tape concealer and that is something I will, hopefully, be picking up soon. The contour stick is my favourite out of it all. Just the way it glided on and blended nicely.
If you're like me and never tried any Tarte make up before I recommend this set. For the deal they have on at the moment you cannot go wrong with it.
What is your favourite piece of Tarte make up?
If you are like me, you've been waiting all day to see what the new products Zoella was releasing for her lifestyle range. I've been in work all day and when I had my break I had to check to see if it was out and as soon as I saw all the new products I fell in love. I love her ranges and have all of her other lifestyle products and now I need to get all of these. The colours are gorgeous and just products I want in my house.

We all love liquid lipsticks. I use to adore normal lipsticks but, after trying out liquid lipsticks nothing has been the same for me. But, you do have some liquid lipsticks that crumble, feel heavy and all in all aren't the best. So, today's post is about my top 5 favourite liquid lipsticks! I have drugstore and high end ones. These are ones I have found that have lasted throughout the day, throughout eating and all in all don't crumble and feel like there isn't anything on my lips.
Not my best swatching but, these colours are beautiful and a mix of nudes and dark pinks and purples.
Pink Blink by Rimmel London (£5.99) is one I've been going on about on twitter a lot. I wore it for the first time the other day from 7am to 6pm when I went to London for an event and I didn't have to reapply it once. It stayed on through food and it is now my favourite of all of my liquid lipsticks.
Queen B by Too Faced (£19) is my only Too Faced product and I need to change that. My mum brought this back from New York for me and I just adore it. The colour is stunning and I can't get over how nice it feels on my lips.
As soon as Kat Von D opened up her beauty products in Debenhams I knew I had to get something. Exorcism (£17) is such a beautiful colour and it is perfect for the autumn/winter months.
Next is this beautiful vibrant colour from Maybelline in Berry Boost (£7.99) How beautiful is this colour? Perfect for summer and would go so nice with a natural eye look.
Last, I have Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen(£6) One of my first matte lipsticks and I just love it. Dries down quickly and stays on for hours. If you haven't tried any of their matte products I recommend this shade to you!
So, what are some of your favourite liquid/matte lipsticks?
