#BEAUTY | Joan Collins Timeless Beauty Event + Makeup Review/Swatches

Welcome to the glamour. Not gonna lie, my makeup desk is now oozing as much glamour as a starlet from 1950's Hollywood with this lot on it :) #allthegoals.

I went to a makeup masterclass by Joan Collins makeup artist *still pinching myself* and was given the most lovely goody bag! Just to be in the same room as Joan Collins make up artist was a big deal for me as I adore the whole Hollywood era.

The event itself was so awesome, to learn more about the products and how much Joan Collins herself is involved and the back story of it was fab. If you want to see the masterclass the event was filmed and is on the Facebook page of the Joan Collins Timeless Beauty.

Eyeliner + Mascara :

So I already had the brown eyeliner and I loved it and now I have it in black also, you can read my review here. I have been using the mascara non stop since I received it as I find the brush to be great for a non clumped look. The mascara consistency itself is not flaky. 

Eyeshadow Quad :

At the event I wasn't so sold on the eyeshadow as I only got to play around with it for a minute and in the time I only tried 2 shades and swatched it on my hand but I felt like it wasn't that pigmented. When I played around with it at home, with brushes and clearly I pushed a lot more harder when I was in my makeup element I was happy that they was quite pigmented. The gold shimmer is very gorgeous and I used the light brown for crease depth. I'm not sure I would personally pay £25 for the quad as I do quite a lot of makeup looks and use a ton of colours so for me to buy a palette with 15 or more colours for £25 is more reasonable BUT as a gift I think it is well worth the £25 due to the luxury of the whole product 
Foundation :

The foundation for me was the star of the show. The colour match for me was spot on for my lighter winter skin *summer come back asap, we all miss you *, the consistency I love because it is not to thick but it isn't overly runny either. I'm not a huge fan of wearing foundation on a day to day basis for reasons such as I like my skin to breath and I don't have time to check it is all blended. What I found with this one is it can be applied quickly using your hands for a light coverage, I would say like a BB cream. If your just in it for the even skin tone look or a slight tint then that's the way but I also found it to be buildable, I have applied 2 layers of the foundation and it is more of a medium coverage look :)


Lipstick :
I previously had the colour Helene and I obtained the colour Amanda at the event, we all got to pick our own colours :) Amanda really stood out to me, next to the other shades it had a very unique colour to it! Unlike Helene, Amanda is orange/hazel toned. I do genuinely love these lipsticks as they are hydrating and glide on with such ease. 


I had an amazing day at the event and playing around with the gorgeous makeup :)

Let me know if you have tried any of the
makeup from the range and your thoughts?!

#BEAUTY | Makeup Revolution Flawless 4 eyeshadows + NEW concealer

In my bid to do a full face of affordable and decent makeup, I went on a shopping trip to gather my items....and of course to grab that concealer the whole beauty world is talking about (or so it seems) so my trip was a disappointing one as the store I went to was near enough empty of makeup revolution :( so I bought this flawless 4 eyeshadow kit and concealer and intend to buy other bits like foundation, brow and lip products etc somewhere else. For the time being though I wanted to share my thoughts on this palette.
The colours are stunning, I'm actually so happy at how high street brands are really good quality for the money, I believe this palette was £6. I was drawn to the pinks and reds and of course the shimmer shades, both being really pigmented. There is a bit of fallout but mostly in the darker colours. There is a good range of mattes and shimmers and saying that also a good range of crease colours and lid colours.

#BEAUTY | Faux Mink Lashes for a Natural/Flattering Look

Lashes don't always have to be worn just for a dramatic effect, they can also be worn to accentuate your eye in a natural yet defining way. I don't wear falsies everyday ( if you do..how do you do it?!) but sometimes when my mood permits me to wear them on an average day I go for a natural/wispy lash or just an accent lash for the outer part of my eye. Buying lashes isn't as an easy job as you may think, you really have to consider the brand due to mink lashes! Luckily I can present to you a brand which have just brought out a line of faux mink lashes as well as their other natural lashes. From fluffy, natural and salon style see how you can get the look below! All lashes from Kiss
Faux Mink - LBD Lash
Give me all the Hollywood starlet glam! I cant help but feel like Audrey Hepburn or Elizabeth Taylor in these lashes. They are fluffy, wispy yet add a little drama. This lash can be re-used up to 10 times if you look after them im sure they will last even longer than that. T…

#BEAUTY| Hair colour restore at home w/ Scott Cornwall

As a box dye girl through and through I'm very welcoming to try new brands, colours and different coverage techniques that are offered.
I got a lovely bit of blogger mail from a brand called Scott Cornwall, it came in such a beautiful box and I was the worst blogger ever and didn't take photos of the box..and if I did I just simply cant find them! Because in all truth I got this package a while ago but I wanted to wait until any other recent dyes I had on my hair had grown out so I could see the results in full effect. Now I think of it there may be a photo of the box on my blog facebook page *hmm*.


As a brunette I got the chocolate brown colour but I also got a deep red colour if I was feeling like a change! I used the chocolate brown colour of course :)
The dye is not permanent but instead it is a colour restore for faded hair, or I like to think its a colour that can keep your hair looking glossy and coloured in the in-between times of when you have coloured your hair and…
