E.L.F Wishlist

I love e.l.f products, I think they're such great quality for the price. I have done an e.l.f haul on my blog before, which you can read here.
I have seen so many products that I would like to buy from e.l.f, so I thought that I would create my very own wishlist.

e.l.f studio eyebrow lifter & filler - £4.50
I love trying out different eyebrow products. I have read so many great reviews on this and I've also never used a 'lifter' so that would be great to try out for the first time.

e.l.f studio long-lasting lustrous eyeshadow - £4.50
This colour eyeshadow just grabbed my attention. You should see the other colours they have, I honestly want them all. They just look so pigmented and they would be perfect for a party look.

e.l.f studio brush shampoo - £4.50
I need another brush shampoo for my makeup brushes. I never knew that e.l.f did brush shampoo. Although, looking at the picture of it, it does look like quite a small bottle. 

e.l.f studio high definition undereye setting powder - £4.50
I have only ever used setting spray. I thought that I would like to try setting powder, especially under the eyes as my concealer always fades throughout the day. It also looks like it would brighten the eye area too.

e.l.f essential expert liquid liner - £3.00
I find that all liquid eyeliners I try are different in certain ways. I just like trying different ones out.

e.l.f studio need it nude eyeshadow palette - £12.50
I love nude eyeshadow colours! This palette also reminds me of Christmas and parties - the sparkly golds and the smoky colours. I'm definitely getting this!

e.l.f studio contouring blush & bronzing cream - £4.50
I either buy contour cream/powder that's too dark or the wrong colour for me. I just love that you get the blush with it. The price is perfect for this! Also, I've never tried cream blush, so that's a first for me.

e.l.f studio mineral lipstick in 'Rich Raspberry' - £6.00
When I was looking through the shades of the mineral lipstick - oh my, I want them all. The shades are unique and seasonal. This was my fave though!

e.l.f essential clear brow & lash mascara - £3.00
I love to set my eyebrows as I find throughout a long day they lose their colour. I have recently ran out of my clear brow gel and I've been using my setting spray. The price of this? Yes I'll buy it!

e.l.f essential blending eye brush - £2.00
I bought the eyeshadow brush early this year, I did mention it in my e.l.f haul. Well, I have been loving that eyeshadow brush. The blending brush (which I was going to buy at the time) was out of stock and had been for a while. So, I just stopped checking the site as it was always out of stock.
Now, it's back and I'm definitely getting this, such great quality!

e.l.f studio makeup lock & seal - £4.50
I love the look of this and there's so many great reviews on this. It's meant to do the same job as setting spray/powder. I guess that you pour the lock and seal in the little pot, dip the brush in and apply it to any part of your makeup that you would want to seal. It also says 'sealed smudge proof' eherm, yes please!

Is there anything here that you like the look of?

Luxemme Christmas Giveaway*

Luxemme is a great quality, affordable, trendy fashion brand combining Parisian chic with Manchester street style.

Luxemme are generously giving away free £15 vouchers to all of my readers for Christmas. Luxemme had mentioned that every Christmas there are people throughout the UK who are less fortunate than most, and struggle to give away as many gifts as they'd like to.

So, I am helping Luxemme spread the word about the voucher giveaway to help the people that do struggle at Christmas time.

The vouchers can be customised with the receivers name, and can therefore make really lovely presents, stocking fillers or secret Santa gifts which I think is so lovely!

All you have to do to get your free £15 Christmas vouchers is:
Follow them on social media and then click here to order your free Christmas vouchers. Also, I would love if you were following my blog (hopefully and respectively you already are - hence why this is for my readers).

I really recommend that you go and check out Luxemme's range of black dresses. They've got some lovely classic LBDs as well as some edgier dresses which are in line with some of the latest trends. Everything I've bought from Luxemme has been high quality and their prices are very reasonable which is brilliant if you want a bit of luxury on a budget.

Freshskin by Elemis

I got these cute miniature products in a little pink zip bag as a gift from my auntie and uncle.

I've owned these products for quite a while. I've been trying all of them out throughout the time I've owned them so that I could write a good enough review on each product.

Skin Glow - Exfoliating Face Wash

Beauty Benefits:
With a deep pore cleansing action, this exfoliating facial wash contains cherry powder and jojoba beads to gently polish and help refine skin texture. Enriched with mandarin and aniseed to soften and condition, leaving skin clear, brightened and more radiant.

This leaves my skin feeling soft and makes my skin texture feel even. I don't really think that it helps reduce the visibility of my pores like it's meant to. It's got those little hard bits in so you can exfoliate well enough - which is always good as it makes me feel much more cleaner.

Skin Clear - Purifying Face Wash

Beauty Benefits:
With a powerful blend of anti-blemish ingredients, this rich and creamy face wash helps to refresh and clear your complexion. Vitamin A, zinc and botanical actives from iris and white willow bark balance and purify, leaving skin looking fresh and bright all day long.

This product is very gentle to my skin compared to the exfoliating face wash. It leaves my skin so much smoother and has also improved the appearance of my pores. The smell isn't overpowering. I can't stop smelling it.

Softly Softly - Daily Moisturiser

Beauty Benefits:
This light and non-greasy daily moisturiser helps defend against free radicals. Rosehip seed oil and sweet almond oil soften and soothe, leaving skin revitalised and more radiant.

I love the texture of this moisturiser! It's so much lighter compared to the moisturiser I used to use and that was classed as 'light' too. I'm not too keen on the smell of this product but you get used to it. As I have been using this daily, I can definitely see the difference. My skin feels and looks so much more hydrated and smooth. No more of a dry forehead!

Magical Moisture - Quenching Face Mask

Beauty Benefits:
White lupin, arctic cranberry seed oil and apple extract deliver an instant moisture boost to dry skin, while aloe vera gently soothes. Leaves skin radiant and exceptionally soft.

I find that this didn't really work for me. I don't usually have dry skin, apart from some parts of my forehead. My forehead definitely felt softer but the rest of my face just felt the same. Although, after rinsing this mask off, I noticed that my skin was brighter which is always good.

Have you ever tried Elemis?

Winter Beauty Must Haves

winter beauty must haves

As winter is on its way I decided to put together a list of winter beauty must haves! I always feel like I need some winter must haves each year.
(Starting from the top left going across)

Snow Melt - £2.00 - Lush 

When I saw this bath melt on the Lush website I just had to look more into it. It's got a bit of glitter and shimmer in it. It's just so wintery and makes me feel cosy! Plus, it's only £2! How good is that!?

Vitamin E Moisture Cream - £12.00 - Best Seller - The Body Shop 

I think most peoples skin get quite dry in the winter months so I found this hydrating vitamin E moisture cream in The Body Shop. I can see that it's a best seller too, so that's also a heads up. 

Max Factor Colour Collections Lipstick (894 Raisin) - £6.99 - Boots

I love a nice A/W lipstick in the winter months. I've heard such good things about this certain lipstick and it's got so many great reviews. I love it in the colour 'Raisin' as it would suit me perfectly.

Benefit ooh la lift under eye brightener -  £17.50 - Debenhams 

This is meant to perk up tired eyes. I find that my eyes and eye make-up is always quite dull in the winter mornings so I when I came across this, I was so excited to read more about it. I've never heard of this before until I went onto the Debenhams website.  

OPI - £12.50 - Debenhams

I love OPI nail polishes but when I came across this one, I loved it even more! It reminds me of Christmas and parties. Love it!

Baby Lips Vitamin Peach Punch - £2.99 - Maybelline 

I've heard so many good things about Baby Lips. Whether it's winter or not, my lips are dry all the time. I usually put on vaseline but it's nice having a hint of colour now and then.

Magic Wand - £5.25 - Lush

Everyone raves about this certain product from Lush and I can see why. It just looks so magical and it reminds me of fairies.

Eyelure Cheryl Lashes First Date - £6.00 - Boots

I absolutely love Eyelure lashes and these just look perfect for Christmas parties and New Years Eve etc.

What are your winter beauty must haves?

5 Youtubers I Have Recently Discovered

I have recently found YouTubers that are completely new to me and I just had to share them with you.


Can I just point out that I love Gabriellas accent. I just love the way she films her videos and I love that they're all different in certain ways.


Sabrina - LoveLaughAndMakeup

Why why why didn't I find Sabrina sooner!? I love her videos and I get so excited when a new upload goes live. I find that she's chatty but a super down to earth person. I just love her.

Hollie Wakeham

One day, I searched tanning routines and I came across Hollies tanning routine video. As soon as I watched that video, I spent the rest of my spare time scrolling through her videos on her channel and she is so talented!

Meg Says

I came across Meg on Twitter and have been watching her videos ever since. She's such a lovely girl and I love that she lives in Norwich too!

Jess - CopperGardenx

I have been following Jess' blog for quite a while now and I never thought to visit her YouTube channel. Anyway, I did in the end and I'm so glad I did. I love her videos, they're all different in different ways. I've also been loving her vlogs too.

This or That

this or that tag

I thought that I would do the 'this or that tag' to start this month's posts off. I love doing tag posts and it looked incredibly fun to do!

Lipgloss or Lipstick - Lipstick, just because I don't own any lipgloss anymore.

Eyeliner or Mascara - Even though eyeliner makes a great difference to my eyes, I would be able to live without it. I need my mascara, if not you can't see my eyelashes. (They're blonde.)

Neutral or Colour Eyeshadow - Even though I love coloured eyeshadow, I so much prefer neutral. Plus, it's my everyday look.

Pressed or Loose Eyeshadows - Pressed. They're less messy and easy.
Long or Short - I prefer short. Long nails creep me out. 

Acrylic or Natural - Natural.

Bright or Dark - Bright. Even though I love the dark colours in the Autumn and Winter, brights are always prettier!

Flower or No Flower - No flower. 

Lotion or Body Butter - Body lotion.

Body Wash or Soap - Body wash.

Lush or Other bath company - Lush. Although I do love nspa - plus, it's cheaper.

Jeans or Sweatpants - Jeans for definite.

Long Sleeve or Short - Short sleeved. I don't really own many long sleeved tops and I get warm very quickly.

Studs or Dangly Earrings - Studs.

Necklace or Bracelets - I wear both but I do prefer necklaces.

Heels or Flats - I wear flats all day everyday but if I'm going out clubbing or it's a special occasion, hands down it's heels!

Curly or Straight - This is so hard! I'm going to say straight as I have extra thick long hair so curls fall out super quick. 

Hairspray or Gel - Hairspray.

Long or Short - Long, all the way! I don't suit short hair. 

Up or Down - Down. A lot of people say that they prefer my hair up though.

Rain or Shine - This one's hard, I don't really prefer either. I'm going to go with rain just because I love wearing cosy jumpers, coats, jeans and boots and I love staying indoors wrapped up in cosy blankets and watching movies. Phew.

Summer or Winter - Wow. They are both my favourite seasons! I love Winter because of Christmas and the fashion and how cosy it can be. I love Summer because the of the nice weather and the amount of stuff you can do.

Autumn or Spring - Autumn! I love the Autumn colours and the leaves falling etc. 

I tag all of you reading this to do this post! If you do this tag let me know as I would love to see what you prefer.
