It’s safe to say one of the products I will forever be addicted to is lipstick!!! So no surprise that 2 of my new ones have made it into this months fave!!!

The first is M.A.C Ruby woo (£15.50) it’s just the most stunning matte red! I know a lot of people complain it’s drying but I think with a good lipliner (I like a Barry M one) and moisturised lips you really shouldn’t have any problems, I find this one of the most versatile reds out there, it suits every skintone and doesn’t travel at all, with it’s matte formula you can get a extremely long wear out of just one application!

Next on to Faux by M.A.C (£15.50) I loveeeee any lipstick of this colour! a pretty nude pink with a satin finish, I wore this all day yesterday over a liner (whirl by mac) i ate twice and drank throughout the day, and I think I re applied 3 maybe 4 times the entire day which I was very impressed with!!! I love lipsticks like this for every day wear I think this will be a forever repurchase of mine.

My next fave product combo is the ZOEVA fine liner brush 315 (£5.95) & Rhimmel Kate black gel liner (£4.99 reduced from £6.99 at superdrug) As we all know I’m a total winged liner girl, Iv been doing it for aslong as Iv been doing makeup, Iv been in search of a nice gel liner & brush combo for a while since my benefit push up liner was such a fail I wanted something I can really get a clean sharp line and these are the two products Iv been loving!
The gel liner itself is super creamy and dries a matte black, extremely pigmented & easy to work with! Also no transfer at all once it dries it’s not budging anywhere!
The ZOEVA fine liner brush is one of the angled tip brushes so you can apply the liner from any angle with great ease and precision! It’s actually the first time Iv used a brush like this and it’s just perfect Iv already ordered another for my kit!

A next love of the month is my Red cherry 43 lashes! 100% human hair lashes for £2.60! Can you seriously beat that price??? They have soooo many to chose from but I just love the 43’s so much I always go back to them and have atleast 5 at a time stocked up! I would recommend them to anyone!

Hourglass Ambient Lightning Powder

So just a quick review from me today!! After hearing about this for months and all it’s amazing reviews I just couldn’t help myself and had to jump on the bandwagon! I was slightly sceptical at first, how can this powder transform my makeup so dramatically???? But it’s safe to say it is incredible!!!

At £38 I really wanted to get my perfect shade the first time round, so I got diffused light a yellow based cream powder and with the recommendation of Wayne Goss, saying it’s the shade for all us pale skinned girls!

Diffused Light is supposed to “reduce redness and give skin clarity.” Like all of the shades within the new range, it is supposed to be suitable for all skin tones. The larger idea behind the Ambient Lighting Powders is that they help to make your skin look like it’s been lit by soft, diffused light; think having a bit of a photographer and his lighting crew follow you around, except in powder form.

Some people mistake these powders for highlighters but they aren’t at all, they are finishing powders that can be applied to different parts of the face to create the perfect light effect on your face at all times!

I like to apply mine after all my face makeup is finished, using a real techniques blush brush I lightly dust under my eyes on my forehead and down my nose, it just gives you that healthy glow but no way is it shimmery!

Overall Must say this is a 10 out of 10 for me! I most certainly will be wearing this on my wedding day it really does create such a flattering finish, it’s hard to describe just quite what it does for your think but just think flawless!

This is incredibly hard to swatch but this is it dusted over my hand you can see the gorgeous sheen it gives! Ahhhhh I love it!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Much love
