After some debate over which foundation to buy next, I was caught between two choices; MAC Studio Fix and the much hyped Benefit Hello Flawless. The decision was made when I went into Debenhams and the MAC counter was far too busy for me to find a match. After seeing my sister use Hello Flawless and with some hard earned tips to burn, I headed to the Benefit counter. After being matched up to the right shade, I also invested in the much loved Porefessional, Benefit’s most popular and infamous primer. Continue reading
Thanks to the usually frugal Tax Man and a generous rebate, yesterday marked the beginning of my mission of being the best poor Santa ever. A lifetime of adoring the festive season has prepared me for the queues of cynical old men, the impossible bargain hunting, and for getting sellotape stuck in my hair. As I know how poor we twenty-somethings are, I am sharing my best buys of the day. Now, I know you are eager to see everything, but some will have to wait or I’ll spoil everyone’s Christmas surprises, you cotton headed ninnymuggins! Before you go and sulk, here are my favourites from yesterday’s spree, and they’ll make you smell like baked goods. Continue reading
Well, gentle readers, it is almost that most wonderful time of the year. If you’re looking for something to add to your letter to Santa, or if you’re in the mood for treating someone who loves their cosmetics, then this is something worth considering. I took a little trip into the Debenhams in Cardiff (or Mecca, as I am inclined to call it) after reading about a new Urban Decay gift set on Twitter. As a fan of anything Urban, I thought it would be rude not to invest in this little box of goodies. UD gift sets are always worth the money – I had one a few years ago that is probably still one of my favourite ever purchases because it included the Marshmallow Powder. I love to smell like a marshmallow, in case you didn’t know. Continue reading
Side note: Like previously stated, I do not brand myself as a beauty blogger. But I will share products that I believe are worth the money. All opinions are my own and I am in no way compensated for these posts.

As anyone who’s taken a look in my make up bag knows, I am absolutely addicted to Urban Decay eyeliners. They’re always consistent and I know what I’m getting for my money. The colour glides on easily, with none of that scratching you sometimes get on the eyelid when you apply it. Not only is the application one of the smoothest on the market due to the creamy formula, the actual eyeliners last for months and you’ll probably only need to buy one now and then. After you’ve applied it, you’ll only need one or two touch ups on your bottom lash line throughout the day (and that’s only if you’re working). One of my favourite things about this brand, is that the selection of colours available is far superior to anything else out there, and they always launch a few limited edition shades in their gift sets. Urban Decay is also certified as being vegan friendly, meaning none of their products are tested on animals. This means you don’t have to think about poor sad bunnies being tormented in laboratories.
