#MAKEUP | My base makeup favourites // High Street

Like most of my posts, i was meant to write them months ago *gulps* this one in particular has been in my drafts for over 3 months!!! SAY WHAT?! i know, im so ashamed myself...but lets focus on the positives...i have been using these products for over 3 months and can give you firm and truthful reviews on them :) 

None of these items have been gifted, all have been bought with my own money albeit months ago and most of these purchases were made on blogger recommendations!

I am THE worst at colour matching my skin and getting the correct colour foundation hence why i dont wear it much as im either super pale or Donald Trump orange ....oh gosh .. please NO lets not talk about DT - the new president of America *exits 2016*..

I picked up the Maybelline FIT me foundation in shade 120 for normal to oily skin, with a matte finish. The shade actually isnt too bad but i still feel it has a slight orangey undertone. As consistency goes it is easy to apply and blend out, i use a brush to buff it in and then i blend it out more with a beauty blender.
It does last for a good few hours but i wouldnt say the coverage is full, i would say more medium to full. But i do love that it doesnt feel heavy on my skin.

I also have pictured the Maybelline super stay 24 hours setting spray of which when i first got it i was really impressed, as on the high street i find it hard to cocme by setting sprays BUT recently when i have been using it i realised it sometimes leaves a light white powdery residue on the skin....maybe i didnt shake the bottle hard enough.....im sure i have been though....so now i have mixed feelings about it :(
The Maybelline FIT me concealer has been compared to the blogger favourite NARS creamy concealer so many times and it is true that it is a really good dupe for it. It is my go to concealer and i really love the consistency and the colour. It blends really well and doesnt make the pores look big!

I didnt realise all of these products were Maybelline haha! Again this concealer is a blogger favourite and i also hold it in high esteem. I like the colour again and also the consistency of this, its a bit more thicker than the Fit me concealer and i use it a lot for my under eye concealer and under my brows to clean up my brows if i fill them in. I dont know if im so in love with the little sponge applicator though!

A few colour and consistency swatches shown here.

Have you used any of these products?

#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
