Hey guys :) Thanks for sticking around while I had a little break. I don't want to go in to it too much but basically I was left quite disappointed by my school and how they handled something which turned me in to a ball of blubbering doubt for a few days. I'm feeling a hell of a lot better now, but it's never nice to think you've made the wrong decision when it comes to something really big and life changing. However I realised that I shouldn't let it ruin all of the good memories I had of school, I really did have a lovely night at my leavers dinner and it was a great way to end my time there.
Anyway, moving on! I didn't actually manage to take any decent photos of my make up, I kind of got caught up in the night, but I did film a little video for Paperbacks & Beauty Facts which you can watch above which gives a rough idea of what it was like. I basically wanted big flicks of eyeliner, a bit of shimmer on the lid and a red lip. A few of the products used were recent purchases so I thought I would just give a little summary of how I feel about them after a few uses! If you want to see what I wore, I posted an outfit last week.
Bourjois Cream Blush - 03 Rose Tender
These blushes have been everywhere at the moment, and after trying them I'm not surprised. It has a great colour pay off while still being easily blendable and buildable if you want a more defined look. I hadn't originally intended on getting this shade but after seeing it in the shops I decided I had to have it.
Rimmel Exaggerate Liquid Eye Liner
This was a new purchase, but it was a repurchase of an old favourite. I used to use this liner and absolutely loved it, however I started to try new ones and just never got around to repurchasing. I usually use the Maybelline gel liner however my eyeliner brush broke and I haven't got around to replacing it yet so I decided to get this again. It's seriously great value for money, easy to use and lasts for hours. I find some eyeliners are a bit more grey than black but this is definitely black!
17 Wild Metallics - Wild Nude
When I was shopping I had intended on picking up a couple of the Maybelline Colour Tattoos however the shades that I wanted were all out of stock, I had a shade similar to this in my basket when I spotted the 17 version. It's basically just a cream shadow, but I'm really impressed. It's really easy to apply and stays all night, the colour is really pretty too. It can be built up and paired with more a more shimmery shade or a darker shade for a night out or it can be toned down to wear on a daily basis. I'll definitely be picking up a few more of these!


  1. Your nails look fantastic! I also really loved the bright lips, you looked gorgeous! :) x
