Go To Lip Products

Hello Everyone!
So for today’s post I’m going to share my current go-to lip products.
These are the lip products I seem to be reaching for more and more at the moment so I thought I would share them with you;

Nyx Liquid Suede in Soft-Spoken I picked this up around my birthday time as I have wanted some of these for a while and never got round to picking them up so thought I would treat myself, I picked this shade as it just seemed like the perfect shade for me as I always go for red/brown shades as I think they suit me more and I love how these apply and how long they last. The only downside I have is I can’t seem to get the applicator to work properly for me so it takes me a while to apply.
Nyx Liquid Suede in Sandstorm Again I picked this up on my birthday and knew this shade would be an everyday shade for me and I genuinely wear this so much I know I will repurchase this when I need to, again it takes me a while to apply but once it’s on I just love the look of it and how long it stays on.  
Younique Moodstruck Hottie Lip Plumper in ShandelleAs you may be aware by now I am a Younique presenter and I love trying all the new products and these got released in July, we released 5 new shades in our lip plumpers and I decided to pick up this shade as I thought this was the perfect everyday shade as I knew I would want to wear this on a daily basis for work. This is a lip plumper so it does plump my lips up but not too much and I have to say I do prefer them like this, the shade is a very muted brown but it just adds a lovely shine to your lips too – love it!
Essence Lip Sticks in (Top to Bottom - 10 Rosey Glitz, 12 Behind The Scenes, 05 Spicy Latte) I wanted to treat myself to some lipsticks a while back and I love Essence as a brand and I know they are inexpensive so thought I would try these out. These were new when I picked them up and I was drawn to them because of the lovely packaging. Now the formula for these are very buttery pigmented and are more glossy so adds a nice shine to the lips and I honestly just love applying these to my lips and the colours are so lovely.

Currently Reading

Hello Everyone!
So for today’s post I thought I would share what I’m currently reading.
I am finally back into reading after such a long time being in a reading slump, I would say well over a year and a half I tried to pick up new books and kept buying more but could never get through a few chapters without putting the book down and giving up. I’ve now read two possibly three books in the last month which is crazy for me so definitely look out for more book posts on my blog and YouTube channel if you’re interested. So now onto what I’m currently reading and that is More Than Enough by Jay Mclean now this is the 5th book in the More Than series so of course I won’t be doing any spoilers in this but will wait until I do my review (which will be very soon!) So I’ve been reading this series on and off for the past year and I’ve loved every book of the series so far, I love the characters, relationships, story line and the writing. I’m just always hooked from the first chapter and that’s what I love – so this story is based around Dylan and Riley which we met Dylan in the previous books but from my memory I can’t remember Riley unless she has played a minor part in the previous book. I felt as though the relationship to start off with was a little bit slow but we have followed the relationship so far through hating each other to friends, more than friends and now of course deeper than friends. I felt as though the relationship has never been in the ‘boring’ stage as there’s always been something happening to keep the relationship going and that’s what I love about these books. The storyline has took me through so many emotions, tears, anger, happiness, laughter and confusion – it’s just been a rollercoaster of emotions from the first chapter and it’s been amazing.

I’m currently 80% into it and I always seem to read quicker when I’m reading on my Kindle but I’m just enjoying this book so much I always want to be reading this so I spend any of my free time at the moment just reading my Kindle which is just so lovely to me as I said I haven’t read for so long so it’s nice to finally want to read again. I can’t really give so much away as it will just spoil the story to anyone who hasn’t read this book yet but when I do my review I will definitely explain all of the story and if I enjoyed it etc. I am loving this book so far though and I do recommend this series to anyone.

I did a YouTube video on what I’m currently reading if you’d like to check it out HERE.
Also you can check my goodreads HERE if you want to see updates on what I’m reading etc.

Favourite Base Products

Hello Everyone!
So for today’s post I’m going to be sharing my current favourite base products.
I have been on the hunt for the perfect base products for quite a while now and feel as though these work for me so I thought I would share them –

Younique Touch Mineral Liquid Foundation in Scarlet – So I picked this up when I joined Younique to give it a try and to be honest I’ve wanted to see what the foundation was like for a while and it is honestly the best foundation I have tried for a long time, the shade is perfect for me and it can be built up for the perfect coverage with not feeling too heavy on the skin. It blends perfectly and lasts all day.
Younique Touch Behold Setting Spray – I apply this once I’ve applied all my makeup just to set it in place for the rest of the day and I honestly love applying this as I’ve definitely seen a difference to my makeup staying on for longer by using this.
Younique Touch Behold Translucent Setting powder – I apply this after my foundation and this makes sure my face stays matte throughout the day, I hardly have to re-powder throughout the day but I still do due to habit. After I apply this powder my face just looks so flawless I love this.
Revlon Colourstay Foundation in 150 Buff (Combination/Oily) – So if I’m deciding to switch my foundation up every so often this is the foundation I go for, the colour is perfect for me and it blends so easily. It again lasts all day and I have used this foundation for years.
W7 Lemon Meringue Anti Redness Eyelid Primer – So I use this to correct my eyelids before I apply eyeshadow so this is more of a base for my eyeshadows. It blends out so perfectly and even though it looks bright yellow it doesn’t apply like that which is something I love. This is the cheapest eyelid primer I’ve tried yet it’s my favourite.
