#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 | 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
