52 Weeks Project | Week 46


This week I've had a couple of days without uni which has been nice, we also had a house party last night and I've spent hours on Pintrest looking at Christmas crafts. I'm now currently in bed watching Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban whilst wearing my Christmas pjs! Perfect.

How has your week been?

My Evening Skincare Routine | Drugstore Products

Until this past year I was never really big on skincare, as I've always been fairly lucky with my skin but as I read more blogs I realised how important it was. I only use drugstore products for my skincare routine as my student budget doesn't stretch very far. 

I mentioned in my micellar comparison post that this was my favourite micellar water I'd tried. I use this every night without fail as it removes all my make up, even stubborn lipstick.

I love this eye make up remover. It removes waterproof mascara with no hassle and doesn't sting my eyes, which is a problem I've had with eye make up remover in the past.

I adore this cleanser, I've previously reviewed it here and I still use it every day. It works so well and leaves my skin feeling super soft and smelling lovely too.

I've been using this moisturiser on and off for a few years now, but it's always one I come back to. It does the job and is so affordable as well which makes me like it even more! It's not too thick and sinks in quickly too.

What are your skincare favourites?

New Lip Products | A/W Lips

I popped into Superdrug after uni the other day uni and I couldn't resist buying a couple of new lip products! I've not looked at the MUA stand in a while so I was excited to see a lot of new products. 

Top - Luxe Velvet Lipstick // Bottom - Shade 1 Lipstick

Luxe Velvet Lipstick - Dare 

This is the product I was most excited about and I haven't been disappointed. It's a beautiful deep shade that's perfect for Autumn/Winter as you can see in the photo above.

Lipstick - Shade 1

This is an amazing red shade, and the best part is it's only £1!  I can't believe how pigmented this is considering it's so cheap. I really do recommend this if you're new to red lipstick or just fancy buying a new one!

Have you bought any new beauty products recently?

52 Weeks Project | Week 45


This weekend my parents came down which was lovely. We went out for a meal and went and did a little bit of shopping which is why this post is quite late, I apologise! I'm feeling really festive now as the lights are going up in town and the shops are full of Christmas things!

Are you excited for Christmas too?

52 Weeks Project | Week 44


This week I had my first Christmas Starbucks of the year and it really did make my day! I opted for a Toffee Nut Latte which was my favourite last year and tastes just as good this year. I'm already getting so excited about Christmas, especially with this years John Lewis Christmas Advert being aired! 

Have you seen the John Lewis advert this year?

Perfect Autumn Eyeshadow | MUA Eyeshadow 'Bronze'

MUA Pearl Eyeshadow - Bronze // ELF Eyeshadow Primer

The other day I popped into Superdrug to browse and this eyeshadow caught my eye. I've not bought any MUA products for a while but I'm so glad I've picked this up, it's my new favourite Autumn eyeshadow. 

The swatch above is from just one swipe of the eyeshadow, so as you can see it's extremely pigmented, especially for the bargain price of only £1. I either apply this all over my lid or for a more subtle look I just apply it to the outer corner, either gives a gorgeous look.

I really do urge you to at least swatch this shade if you don't already own it!

What's your favourite MUA product?

52 Weeks Project | Week 43


This week has been stressful but also fun. I celebrated Halloween twice and went for two different looks as you can see from above. I know a lot of people go all out with intricate make up but until this year I wasn't really fussed by Halloween so I just went for simple looks. The first night I went out I was a cat (how typical I know!)  but i also applied glitter to my whiskers and blood down my arms as well. The second night I went for a black eye and a few bruises elsewhere and a little blood down my chin. I really enjoyed this Halloween!

What did you do for Halloween?
