Today I’ve just been out and collected some things I ordered from boots. I still have loads of new make up and brushes to come but they haven’t come yet.


These are the products I bought. I’ve heard great things about the NYX Lingerie Matte Lipsticks. I decided to buy these as the Kylie Lipkits aren’t really for me and can be quite patchy. You can read about my review on Kylie’s lipkits here.




(Sorry for my lack of make-up)

I got the Matte colours that suit my face and match to my regular make up looks the most. The colours dry to a perfect matte and last a very long time. They’re all very gorgeous colours and very pigmented. Obviously you can build up protection and colour to how you like it. These are a great investment for those who don’t want to pay Kylie’s ridiculous shipping fees and the ridiculous prices. Since finding these, they’re an exact dupe to Kylie’s lipkits. They are £6.50 for one Matte Lipstick. You can get them at boots here. I would REALLY recommend purchasing these, I’ve only used this for a short time and I’ve had plenty of drinks and kissed (sorry!) my boyfriend lots (cringe) and they lipstick has stayed in place and perfect.



These are some swatches of the colours I bought. I will be purchasing more of these but hopefully they will last quite a while. I will be updating you on this in a few weeks time!

The next product I bought was a random purchase of a highlighter I saw for £1.00. Yes, I said £1.00. Obviously you’re thinking it’s awful but I swatched it in the store and I cannot believe the pigmentation of this highlighter.


It was in a store called Savers which you can tell is a lovely cheap store! I noticed it out the corner of my eye and thought to myself I should swatch it to laugh and see how bad it is. Boy I was so wrong. It’s so lovely! I love all things sparkly and this is a great purchase.


The photo isn’t that great, but this is so worth the buy. For £1.00, how could you not buy it?

The next product I also noticed in Savers, they looked very pretty but upon closer inspection I noticed that it makes frizz settle down and the hair turn smooth and straight upon washing with these.


This is something that Keratin obviously does and I’m so excited to use these. At £1.00 a bottle, it’s worth the try. As I have very frizzy and ringlet hair, I straighten my hair every day or two. It’s so much easier if the hair turn out straight. I will be updating and reviewing this product hopefully later on today or tomorrow!

I then thought I would buy the Maybelline foundation that everyone raves about. I cannot wait to try this a review it as I’ve heard many good things and as my skin is fairly oily in parts but normal in others and I have lots of imperfection, it would be nice to see how it turns out. It’s the Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation. You can buy this at Boots here.

The foundation is £5.99. I cannot comment on if it’s a good price but I will be updating you soon enough! I’m really excited to try this product.

That’s all for today. I hope you like the products. Let me know if you have any and if you like them. Make sure to follow me and look out for the reviews!
