Max Factor Creme Puff Blusher in Seductive Pink

As soon as I read about the new Max Factor Creme Puff blushers, I knew it wouldn't be long until at least one made it's way into my makeup bag. Then again, when does it ever take long for a new beauty product to make it's way into my makeup bag?! With their gorgeous multi-tonal pigments and illuminating qualities, the Max Factor Creme Puff blushers are said to be similar to the ever so popular Ambient Lighting blushes, only these are a fraction of the price. After spending a ridiculously long time in Superdrug deciding which of the 6 shades to purchase, I eventually opted for Seductive Pink - a pinky peach toned blush which I thought was best suited to my fair to medium complexion.

High Street Makeup Haul & First Impressions

If you follow me on Instagram, you'll have seen that I recently went on a little high street makeup haul. Getting far too into high-end products, I often forget how good some high street brands actually are, my new favourite being the Italian brand Kiko. High street brands also have some incredible dupes for high-end products at affordable prices, one dupe actually features in this post! So for a Rimmel, Collection and Kiko filled haul, keep reading...

The Perfect Lunchtime Spot: LIVIN'Italy

A couple of Sundays ago, my boyfriend and I thought we'd try somewhere new for lunch and as a sucker for anything Italian, we spotted a little deli called LIVIN'Italy. Located in Granary Wharf in the centre of Leeds, it's a small yet cosy place with a relaxing laidback vibe and a lovely homely feel to it. After walking in the freezing cold, we decided to order hot drinks to warm us up. I went for a Cappucino and my boyfriend ordered a Caramel Mocha. Ran by Italians, as you can imagine, the coffee at LIVIN'Italy was pretty good!

Big Hair Days

I'm all for volume when it comes to hair. Any product that gives me bigger bouncier locks, just throw it my way (or leave it the comments below!). After far too many walks up and down the hair aisles in Boots, trying out products and eventually tossing them into my drawers never to be used again, I have finally found three go-to volumisers that work for me. So if your hair's currently craving body then keep reading...

My Week in Photos: Makeup, Fashion, (lots of) Food & Cocktails

Well, looking at my Instagram pictures taught me three things. Firstly, that I eat out way too much. Secondly, that I own far too much makeup. And Thirdly, that I'm a bit of a cocktail enthusiast. All three things however, I can't see changing any time soon...

Review: Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

Like probably every girl who saw it, I grabbed the March issue of Elle from the supermarket shelves and ran to the checkout. Okay, so maybe I didn't run (that's only on extremely rare occasions) but one of my favourite magazines teaming up with one of my favourite brands and giving away a freebie ermm did someone say perfect?!

It's been a while since I did a haul post and what better way to get the ball rolling again than with a NARS haul. Three products I have been lusting after for a rather long time now are finally sat in my makeup bag, just about scratch free and still looking all shiny and new. I love that feeling of using makeup for the first time, when you swipe your brush over freshly opened palettes and dip into bottles, applying the product to your face with that sense of excitement and awe. Sheer Glow foundation, Albatross and Deep Throat have to be some of the most popular Nars products and I couldn't wait to see why.
