#BEAUTY | e.l.f cosmetics - base makeup review



Am i being a bit rich claming e.l.f. is the best makeup brand when i havent tried a lot of other makeup brands? *covers face* ahaha id say so. Well, what i mean is i recently got some e.l.f. goodies for my birthday and i am SO impressed with them! Long story short, i havent ever found a decent foundation that doesnt make my skin look cakey or show old woman wrinkles...for ages i thought it was just my skin but NO...all this time i have been lied to. 
I tried out e.l.f's flawless finish foundation in shade BUFF ( so risky buying a shade online but it fits perfectly!) it looks darker than it is just so you know. So yeah, i tried it and its a life changer full stop. 

(linked ^)
Price - £7.50

Cheaper than most foundations too, literally this brand is singing from the same hymn sheet as me!
It is super blendable. It has a very good coverage, i thought it would be really thin but it isnt. I personally think it is the perfect consistancy - it isnt runny or too thick. It is nice and blenable too and if you want to go in and do more than 1 application it doesnt wrinkle or go yucky! It stays on for a long time too.
I give it a 10/10! 
Wearing the foundation and concealer - you can see how the concealer really does brighten the eye area and the foundation gives a flawless finish! oh yeah also the finish powder is used to set the concealer and carve the contour!

Price - £ 4.50
I gotthe shade fair. Again i really like this product. I tend to put the highlighter under my eyes in  V shape before i apply my foundation to give that sort of luminous look. Alternatively you can just use it as a liquid highlighter. The concealer is amazing it is light coverage i would say, hmm no i think it is a pretty alright coverage. What i really like is that it isnt cakey, a lot of concealers i have used under my eyes have just sunk into my bags and looked so gross!! This one really doesnt do that and again for me that is a huge plus. Going back to the coverage as i didnt explain it too well, what i was trying to say is that it is just a thinner consistancy than most concealers i have used before but it still covers well! I have scored it a bit lower just cos the highlighter isnt as luminous/brightening as i thought, but thats all!
I give it a 8/10 


Price  - £7.50 
This one i am so impressed with, a cheaper option than the laura mercier powder! It leaves my skin so so so so soft, i cant emphasis enough how soft it makes my skin!! It bakes the skin perfectly. You cant knock trying it for just £7.50!
I give it a 7/10

 

Price - £4.50
I love this brush. It is basically a tapered brush for contouring and highlight. The perfec size and the bristles are soft and i havent had any fallout. It is a brilliant price,
I give it a 10/10

The other items in the photo are an e.l.f. lipstick and somehow my NYX eye pencil got in there haha! So the lipstick came free i think when you spent over £30, it is a bright red colour and smelled really strongly of strawberries LOL i havent used it yet but hey you cant go wrong with a red lippy.

The NYX pencil is A-mazing. YES, every makeup youtuber has it. Now its mine too *woo* but honestly it is amazing. I use it on my lids as a base for my eyeshadows and YEP it sure does help the shadow to pop! It is so creamy and blendable i think it is a MUST have for any makeup enthausiast.

#BEAUTY | SBC gels

One of my favourite ingredients for my skin, especially dry skin is manuka honey. So i tried out some of the honey products from the SBC Gels and havent stopped using them. They have replaced my usual products. So lets have a product break down! The manuka honey and orange blossom scrub has really fine bits in it which are very helpful for exfoliating, but as a they are super fine it is a lot more nicer to  use than some products that have the larger exfoliating bits in them!   Manuka honey & orange blossom body butter - as you have guessed by the name this is a body butter! They dont tend to be my go to product as i dont really like the consistancy. I love the smell of this, its so fragrent. After i have used the shower wash i either use this or the gel to get me some soft soft skin! These two are my favourite from the honey selection. There is the bath and shower gel (on the left) and the skincare gel . The bath and shower gel smells so strongly of hone

#TRAVEL | Liverpool

Its been a month since I visited Liverpool for the first time, its only right that I share my trip :) First of its a very friendly place, but I have come to learn that most places apart from London are....sorry London but its true.  I stayed for 2 nights and 3 days and I would say that it was enough time to explore the main parts of Liverpool and get a vibe for it. Im happy that I can now sing "ferry across the mersy" and constantly shout.. I've been there! I've been there! Its the little things that make it worth it aha Im a sucker for being near water and also in the city centre and the hotel I stayed which was called the tune hotel was the perfect walk away from the river as well as the city. A 5 min walk to the famous Cavern Club. Museums are a plenty and I visited them all! My fave being the museum of Liverpool, lots of interactive fun things to do and to learn. I would recommend taking a part of the day to go on the bus tours o
