My September/October favourites!

First of all I wanna just apologise for the lack of my posts lately! Iv been on a family holiday so have been super busy but I promise from now on I’m all yours!!

So let’s move on to some of my favourites of late!
First up is the mac 130 stippling brush I it’s a smaller version of the popular 187 brush that personally I don’t like to apply foundation with so I was sceptical, HOWEVER this brush really does give you a flawless look! I find I use half the foundation i normally would and it just sits beautifully! Blends like a dream and has little to no shedding! It does take a lil longer to apply foundation with as it’s so little, however defiantly worth the extra few minutes in my opinion! In fact I switched back to my sigma f80 the other day as I was in a hurry and wanted a quick face, And omg my face looked so cakey! I had to wipe it all off and start again with the 130, I was so surprised in how much difference it actually made!!!
So concluding on that I rate this 10/10! It’s really transformed my foundation and for that I’m forever greatful 🙏 😂

(Google image as my brush was a lil dirty for an up close shot sorry!)

Next up is a lipstick that Iv posted about so much lately and even been featured afew times! and that’s Posture by Illamasqua it’s a cool toned lilac/grey and AHHHH I’m obsessed it’s so long lasting, not to drying and a true matte finish. I wear it paired with macs stone liner which is a cool grey and compliments it so well!👌 I get so many lovely compliments when I wear it ☺️ I think any pale skinned girl NEEDS this in their life!!

My last favourite of the bunch is actually a limited edition blush by Mac, I hate to post LE Favourites as I know they can be super hard to get hold of after release but I couldn’t leave this out I love it so much! (And I believe it’s still available on Selfridges online & some Mac counters)
It is the Blush in “fun ending” from the A novel romance collection, a pale pinky peach blush with a satin finish, its gives such a gorgeous sheen with no actual shimmer! It’s pretty perfect for the lighter skintones as it is gorgeously subtle unlike most blushes I find I can be a little more heavy handed without looking like a clown! I think Iv worn it pretty much every day since finding it at a random mac counter in Scotland! And it’s a total love of mine! Infact I may be getting a backup because I’m weird like that and fear running out of my favourite LE products🙈

Autumn Lips

So Autumn is upon us! My favourite time of the year! With my birthday & Halloween I get a little excited to say the least! however I also get to rock my favourite dark vampy lip colours!!!! And don’t get me wrong I do still wear them in other seasons but nothing beats a real vampy lip in the fall, so today I’ll post my top 5 I hope you enjoy them and maybe try some out!!!

First is illamasqua “growl” I was lucky enough to get this in a sale but it’s RRP is £18.50, this is one of the most gorgeous rich monogamy brown with a matte finish! Extremely long wearing and amazingly pigmented!

Second pick is Limecrimes “wicked” velvetine, retails for £13.50 from cocktailcosmetics.co.uk, a deep red with slight brown undertones, this is a liquid lipstick so goes on like a gloss as drys to a Matte finish but surprisingly not drying on the lips at all! and lasts literally all day with just one application, I especially love this if I’m going out to eat as I know It will stay put!

Third on the list is a new favorite of mine thanks to the recommendation from my gorgeous girl Lois! This is Makeup revolutions vamp lipstick in the shade “100% Vamp” you can purchase this from MakeupRevolution.co.uk for just £1!!!!! this is a very close dupe of macs cyber lipstick just with more of a creamy finish! A gorgeous deep plum I just cant get enough of it!

The last lipstick of the bunch is NYX, soft matte lip cream in “Transylvania” (£5.50) This is also a liquid lipstick so apples like a gloss and doesn’t budge at all! It’s a deep deep wine colour, so pretty and will be forever a lipstick I reach for!

So my last Autumn lip essential is actually a lipliner! Nightmoth by Mac cosmetics, (£12.00) I actually wear this liner with all of the above lipsticks it’s extremely versatile great for a ombré lip effect or just lining the lips normally! I personally find it essential with any dark lip colour as you especially don’t want the lipstick smudging or bleeding all round your mouth so this will defiantly keep it looking crisp & beautiful!

So that’s my go to Autumn lip colours! I hope you all enjoy them and look forward to rocking them over the coming months

Much love dolls!
