Acessorize Matte Lipstick | Passionate

For those of you that do not follow me on Twitter or Instagram, I just recently turned 17 on the 12th of November and one of the things that I got was this gorgeous lipstick which is right on trend for this season. I've been wanting a deep shade like this for a long time now and the ones that I was researching were MAC's "Cyber" and "Film Noir" and I was a bit hesitant on getting one of those only because I wasn't completely sure how they were going to look on me, I did however get MAC's "Ruby Woo", because its such a universal, classic retro red shade, I knew I couldn't go wrong getting it, please let me know whether I should do a post on that because I am aware that there tons and tons of video's and posts. Okay, so I should probably get into this:

In the tube it looks like a very deep wine colour which immediately attracted me to it because it's just the shade that I have been looking for, it is also matte which I love because matte finishes are my favourite, some people like more of a glossy finish to their lips and if you are one of these people then I'm glad to let you know that this lipstick does come in a glossier version. It cost only £5.00 which I think is pretty good and sooooo worth it, the staying power is really great and I'm sure that has something to do with the fact that it's matte finish, even though it is matte I don't find it that drying but it would be wise to exfoliate and moisturize before hand. This lipstick comes with 3.5g of product, it also has lip gloss on the top of the lid if you wanted to add gloss over the top of it, I find it great to line your lips with, with a lip brush.  
If you are of lighter skin tone and think that this would be too dark for you than I recommend you get "infatuated" which is still a lovely wine colour just not as dark as this one.
The packaging is the classic Accessorize print which is the floral print, very cute!
I did do a quick swatch on my hand so that you guys could see the colour and formulation of the lipstick a bit better. This also helps if you are close to my skin tone and need some indication to what it would look like on you, I know I always find that really helpful.
I think that this lipstick would look really nice with a neutral, simple eye look, winged liner and mascara. It's such a statement vampy shade! Let me know in the comments what you think about this shade or just accessorize makeup in general.

Eco Tools Brushes: Retractable Kabuki & Tapered Blush Brush

Hey guys, I recently went into Boots to get these two brushes. I got the Retractable Kabuki brush because I was in desperate need to apply pressed powder with a brush and not those dreadful powder puffs that come with the MAC Studio Finish powders (NC45) and I got the Tapered Blush brush because I really wanted a fluffy brush that I could use for multiple purposes. These brushes are also eco friendly and are cruelty free which is awesome! I'm just going to do a quick review on both of them so that you can get my opinion on them.

Retractable Kabuki Brush
As you can tell from the picture above the packaging is made with aluminium which is super slick and cool. This is a the newer version of this brush because I am aware that there is an older one that is silver with lighter coloured fibres, I can't really compare the two because I have not tried the older one. I love this brush so much, it is so soft and in my opinion totally worth the £12.99. Overall its just a really handy brush to have because it can apply powder, bronzer and maybe even blush with a light hand as well as being able to carry it around wherever you go not worrying that any bacteria is going to get all over it.

Tapered Blush Brush
As I said before I was in need of a fluffy brush that I could use for multiple purposes and this brush does exactly that. I use it for blush, bronzer and this brush is also great for contouring because it is tapered which allows me to create precise definition to my face without the bronzer going all over the place. This brush can also be used for powder application, its amazing. It cost £7.99 which is not all that bad for what its worth and I just know that both of these brushes are going to last me a very long time judging from the tons of reviews that I have read recently. The ferrule is made from aluminium and the handle is wooden which just shows the quality of this brush.

I'd love to know whether you're thinking about getting these brushes or if you have them already.

TAG: Cofessions of a Beauty Blogger

I saw this tag on sineaddreamingagain's blog and I immediately felt like I needed to this tag, it seemed like fun. Soooo here it goes!
1. How many hours a week do you spend writing/ editing posts?
Well.. I just started my first year of A-Levels and the work load has been really intense so not as much hours go into blogging as I would like it to but I would say that 2-3 hours maximum, on a weekend when I have free time.
2. Are you a spender or saver?
If I'm being completely honest with myself here, I am definitely a spender whenever I have money I always feel the need to spend it immediately even its something that I don't really want which is really bad, it's something I'm working on though.
3. When is it easier for you to blog?
Definitely on a weekend or during school holidays because I'm free of work.
4. What makes writing behind a computer comfortable for you?
I really enjoy the fact that you don't really have to worry too much about what you like whilst behind a computer and you can literally be where ever and blog which is really cool.
5. What is your worst makeup/ hair habit?
My worst hair habit is that I never brush my hair often enough and I always end up with so many knots underneath my hair it's unreal. And for makeup I can't think of any right now but I'm sure there must be something.
6. What is one quote you wish the world lived by?
Probably "Don't hate what you don't understand"- John Lennon. I think that quote applies to so many different situations in life and different people. I think if people actually tried to understand different motives, we wouldn't be so judgemental of other people's actions.
7. How long do you spend getting ready everyday?
Not too long I don't think, about an hour and a half maybe.
8. Who's your favourite blogger?
My favourite blogger is Kavita (She Wears Fashion) I think that all the outfits she puts together are so edgy and cool and not to mention she's so beautiful and I couldn't possibly pick a favourite Beauty blogger because there's too many.
9. Who is a blogger that you think deserves more subscribers than they have?, she posts really cool outfit ideas and seems like I really nice person! and you should subscribe to her blog.
10. What is one thing that you are excited about in the upcoming year?
I excited about getting my driver's licence and actually driving and just all the new experiences that I am going to experience that I don't know about yet.
11. What is your most awkward blogging moment?
I don't think I really have one but I'm bound to have one at some point in the future. haha
12.How long does it take you to prepare a post?
It usually takes me an hour and half to prepare a post depending on what type of post it is though because if it's a tag like this one it doesn't take me too long as I just answer them as I go along without any plan, which I'm sure you can tell at this point. I feel like tags are more authentic if their not prepared.
13. Are you wearing trousers right now or jogging pants/ PJ bottoms?
I'm wearing comfy jogging pants right now and I don't even feel bad about it.
14. What are you most proud of in life?
Wow.. this is an intense question. Probably getting the grades that I needed to do my A-Levels. :))
I hope you guys somewhat enjoyed reading my "confessions". Some of them I did find hard to answer but I hope it wasn't all that bad.

Vampy Nails #NOTD!

Hey Lady Loves! <3

So, it's like.. 16:32pm and I really felt the need to type up a nail post because, not going to lie I was really feeling these nails in all its mysterious glory! The colour of this nail polish is just so fitting for the season of Autumn. I've really been loving dark nails these past few weeks which is kinda strange for me because I usually go for the lighter colours because I feel it suits me better, however this dark wine, plum shade by Avon has really taken my fancy and I think I'll be wearing a lot of it these up coming weeks and it just seems to go with all my outfits which is always a bonus because we all know there's nothing more annoying than your nails not suited to what you're wearing, well for me anyway.

Step 1: I first put on one coat of Rimmel's base coat/ nail hardener, which is absolutely amazing I use it before I put on any nail polish, it keeps my nails really hard and healthy and prevents my nails from breaking/chipping. I highly recommend this product.
Step 2: Then after that has dried completely I put two coats of the Avon 's "Vamp it" and wait for that to dry completely which I am really bad with by the way, I always end up with some weird print on my nails by the end of it because I don't wait for it to dry. Comment below if you do the same?
Step 3: After the second step I add a little bit of the Kelly Brook gold glitter on my ring finger to finish of the nail look! Really simple!
Leave any comments that you have below and I would love to know what's your go to nail colour for the Autumn season!?
