april favourites 2015.

This month is almost colour themed! Darn that bottle of perfume for not being a shade of coral. But April was a month that was equally relaxed and stressed - I'm glad to have had a short break away from London and a good amount of gorgeous sunny days even when I came back. But alas, break isn't without work and my desk and the floor around it is already buried in papers that I've stacked up for exam revision...but enough with that, let's get to the main point of this post and talk about makeup.

blog sale.

So I did a huge makeup spring clean and there are quite a few products that are in really good shape so I'm finding them a new home. A couple of things to keep in mind: 

1. It's first come first serve. If you see something that piques your interest, then email me at with the title 'blog sale' and let me know what you would like to buy. All things will be reserved for 24 hours after I reply to your email with paypal details - which is the only accepted payment method. 

2. All postage is £2 for Royal Mail Second Class delivery unless you buy loads of stuff, then I'll get back to you with an estimate. If you want First Class/Recorded Delivery, then do let me know and I'll adjust the shipping fees. 

3. This is mainly going to be UK-based, but if you're international, then email me and we'll see if we can work things out. 

4. No returns, sorry! If you have any questions regarding a product, do let me know. 

Happy shopping!

don't ever leave me.

Yes, will you look at that. That's what a finished pan product looks like. Repurchasing a product is a rare event for me. Repurchasing a makeup product is even more rare. If it's an high end product, then it's only happened once. Until now.

cocktail reviews: lipstick bits #1

Riiiiight, so some of you sharp eyes might have noticed that despite (mainly) being a beauty blog or at least trying to be, I don't post as many reviews as I should. This is mainly down to a) anxiety that I've left out something crucial in my review, b) I usually do as I don't always proofread before I post (I know, it's terrible. Fight me.), and mainly c) I don't have the attention span. But I'm trying to inch up the quality of my posts, rather than it just being full of word vomit (am I'm demonstrating right now). So starting small, I'm starting a new series of what I'm calling Cocktail Reviews, which is basically mini reviews. 

Today, I'm grouping up the higher end lip products I've been reaching for at the moment and giving you a quick overview on them. I'm also trying to include actual swatches, so apologies in advance for shoving my face at you.

March Favourites 2015.

I feel like I open every monthly favourites post with a recap of what happened. I'm not very creative when it comes to first sentences. In fact, I always agonize over the first sentence of every essay for hours. But yeah, March officially marked the end of the teaching hours that I have for my masters programme and it's flippin' scary. We only have a couple of revision seminars next term before exams hit. Yikes! Enough about the future anxiety-inducing events, let's focus on the beauty bits and bobs I've been loving the past 31 days.
