#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 | MY favourite ever!

Yesss i am a lash addict...even if im not wearing them i am hoarding them. Here are a few of my faves, most of them will be wispy, invisi band lashes with the odd OTT lashes as i do like my lashes to look as real as possible. Huda Beauty : Scarlett lash - h'omg, these lashes are the ultimate out there lash. They really give me the old hollywood glamour feels and really make your eyes pop. I love these as a high end, luxury lash as they are very pricey!! But 100% worth it. Lash Unlimited : DBL range - i always loved the original range from this brand  the #7 and #9 are so so pretty so when they brought out the DBL range i was really blown away, the lashes are more thicker and have like a double layer and some of the styles remind me of the lilly ghalichi lashes! These lashes are great quality for the low price! Nouveau Lashes : Natural/ Style 3 - Being a member of the #LashGang makes me a little biased here! Well, i say that but im not re

#REVIEW | Ammonia FREE hair dye w/ NATURIGIN

There are a lot of hair dyes on the current market and when i am shopping for one i tend to normally stick to one or two brands, more than anything it is to do with price rather than being about a brand i love. All hair dyes have a variety of colours and there ist much else that sets them apart, so for me i am easily swayed and will give most brands a go! Enter... NATURIGIN . This posts is actually a little overdue, sorry guys! I met the lovely people behind the brand at the blogger hangout event which you can read HERE and they told me the wonders about the hair dye. Basically the biggest selling point or best asset shall i say of this product is the fact that it is ammonia free and organic based! The dye itself is free of ammonia, which means it doesnt have the smell of a chemical lab!! I was so pleased and pleasently suprised with the smell of the dye. I really had no idea what to expect but it wasnt at all that strong bleachy smell it was so much more toned down.
