Perfect Dupe | Mac Sunny Seoul

Hello everyone, so for Christmas I got the lipstick Mac Sunny Seoul, I asked for this shade because I wanted something fresh and something that could be worn both winter and summer. As I was sorting through my lipsticks I noticed that this lipstick was almost the exact same as a Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick I already owned. Which obviously got me thinking about a blog post, so this is the cheap alternative to Mac Sunny Seoul. The Rimmel Kate Moss is in number 16, and is £5.49 opposed to Mac Sunny Seoul at £15.50. The finishes are different, the Mac one being a cremesheen and the Rimmel one not. Personally I think that the Rimmel lipstick is just as good quality as the Mac one. If you're looking for a corally pink shade lipstick at a lower price I'd recommend the Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick. Its just the perfect dupe! 

Have you got a favourite dupe lipstick?

Lush Christmas Roundup

Hello everyone, as you can probably tell, Christmas is officially over (so sad). However, Lush just keep on giving since I got MANY Christmas bath bombs for Christmas! So I decided I'd do a quick round up of my favourite Lush bath bombs this Christmas, I hope you enjoy and know what to put on your list for next Christmas.

The favourites I have picked out this year, have to be Snow White bath bomb, which is plain white with a bright pink middle; making your bath all lovely and pink! Who doesn't want that? The smell is gorgeous, I'm sure many of you will be familiar with it. Then to add to the bath bomb, swish around the snow fairy wand to give it plenty of bubbles. the smell is similar to snow white which makes your bath even more sweet! My other favourites this year have to be the luxury lush pud, which is bursting with colours, also the dashing santa bath bomb, which is a different sort of Christmas smell but I like it a lot; definitely going to purchase more of them next year. I hope that if you received lush products for Christmas this maybe gave you the idea to mix a few up or maybe you know exactly what you're going to buy next Christmas!

Whats your favourite Lush bath bomb?

Christmas Reds

Hello everyone, its getting so close to Christmas and I'm trying to make the absolute most out of it with the Christmas posts, haha. I haven't done a beauty related post for a while, so today I'm going to share with you two of my favourite Christmas red lip products! Enjoy.

Mac Russian Red, I'm confident every single person in the world has heard of Mac Russian Red. I have featured it on my blog before, in my favourites. But now its the perfect time to really talk about this beauty. I will definitely be wearing this on Christmas day, its a darker red colour, opposed to a brighter one which I really like about this, darker reds are my favourite. Its also matte, which is perfect for Christmas day especially, eating, talking, drinking etc; its going to be staying on your lips all day long. If you don't already own this lipstick, I think you may be missing out a bit!

Tanya Burr Vampire Kiss, as everybody knows Tanya Burr has her own range of lipglosses, and this was the first one I purchased from the range. I love this colour so much, its a gorgeous red, a bit brighter than Macs Russian Red, but I don't think I'd want any darker in a lip gloss. Everyone has probably heard/read a lot about these lipglosses, and know that they have such a good formulation and really do stay on your lips for a long time; unlike some lipglosses. This is a lovely Christmassy red anyway, one that could be worn to a Christmas party, or even on Christmas day. I must add that the smell of these lipglosses are out of this world, and its tempting to lick it off your lips, haha. 

Whats your favourite Christmassy red lip product?

Warm Winter Eye Shadow | Color Tattoo

Hello everyone, another winter themed post, making the most of it whilst I can, haha. However, I am sure many of you have heard of the Maybelline Color Eye Tattoos. Okay, EVERYONE has heard of them; but I think this one should get some more recognition this winter!

This is in the shade 'Metallic Pomegranate'. Its a deep purply colour, with a gold shimmer throughout. Its also a cream eye shadow, which I'm sure you know, all of the color eye tattoos are. This colour, to me, seems perfect for a dark smoky eye for winter time. I find this to be a good base to build up on if you're going for the smoky eye look, its also surprisingly easy to blend out which is a plus. This beautiful colour would match perfectly if you wanted to go for a berry lip, maybe a purple or a dark red this would definitely suit that look! This stays on for such a long time as well, hence the 24 hour part, haha. I would totally recommend this for the winter time, its such a warm and festive colour.

Whats your favourite winter time eye shadow? I hope you enjoyed this post, and thanks for reading.

Christmas Playlist

Hello everyone, how has your weekend been? Anyway, running with the Christmas theme here we have my Christmas playlist! This is a mixture of Christmas songs, and just normal songs, so I hope you enjoy.

Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) by Michael Buble - My absolute favourite Christmas song, Michael Buble's album is the best Christmas album out there.

Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran - Not a Christmas song, but such a calming lovely song for the Christmas time.

Merry Xmas Everybody by Noddy Holder, James Lea and Slade - Classic Christmas song, everybody loves this, one of my personal favourites.

Real Love by Tom Odell - From the John Lewis advert, this song is the sweetest and Tom Odell sings it so well.

Let It Go by Idina Menzel - From Frozen, of course everybody knows this one. Its so popular but such a catchy song for Christmas and I know everybody can't resist it!

Budapest by George Ezra - Again, not a Christmas song but such a calm song. I love more calming songs in the winter its just more relaxing to wind down for Christmas.

Santa Tell Me by Ariana Grande - I've actually been loving Ariana Grande's new album, and this is such a lovely new Christmas song that I think everybody should go and listen too.

Cool Kids by Echosmith - This song has only recently been realised I believe, but its so catchy and you just get good vibes from it.

So Far (It's Alright) by The 1975 - What would a playlist be without The 1975, my favourite band ever. I can never get bored of this song, and I think it fits well into a Christmas playlist.

Jingle Bells by Michael Buble ft The Puppini Sisters - A bit more Buble never hurts, this one is so catchy and he just sings it beautifully.

All I Want For Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey - Another classic song for Christmas, who doesn't love this song basically?!

Wrapped Up by Olly Murs - Such a happy song for the Christmas time, everyone loves a good Olly Murs song.

Left Hand Free by Alt-J - I just really like this song and Alt-J are something a bit different!

Good Thing by Sam Smith - This is from his new album, which I love, and this has to be one of my favourite songs on there.

Jingle Bell Rock by Bobby Helms - This has to remind you of Mean Girls right, such a good Christmas song and probably one of my favourites.

So, whats your favourite Christmas song? Thanks for reading guys, I hope you enjoyed and maybe discovered a few new songs too.

No7 Lash Impact Review

Hello everyone, I'm kind of relating this to a Christmas themed post purely because of the packaging for this product. Its the No7 Lash Impact mascara. Wow, this is going to be a good review let me tell you now! Enjoy.

I really needed a new mascara, as I'd run out of the Miss Manga but wasn't really fancying buying it again. I'd seen this mascara being advertised throughout Boots for a very long time, plus my friend had it and said how amazing it was. So I decided to give it a go. I have to say, I wasn't expecting too much from it, don't ask me why. But wow, I have not been disappointed one BIT. For £13.50, this is one of the best mascaras I've ever used. It really does give volume to your lashes like no other mascara I have used in the past. It separates your lashes perfectly also.

The applicator isn't a plastic one, which I think really helps. It does exactly what it says on the tube, give intense volume. It doesn't come off for anything, there has been times where I have worn this whilst crying and it hasn't sort of dribbled down my face then, or when you accidently forget to take it off before you shower, it doesn't go all over your face. So getting it off, as you can imagine, is a bit of trouble but I think its worth having a mascara that stays on all day long then having to try and scrub off at night. It really does give your lashes that curled, volume effect. I adore this mascara, who knew you could love a mascara so much? I'd recommend this mascara to anyone and everyone, it's totally perfect with very minimal flaws. Whats your favourite mascara? Thanks for reading everyone, hope you're having a good week!

Feeling Festive | Primark Christmas Jumpers

Hello everyone, its only 17 days until Christmas and today I got my Christmas jumper, oh yeah! The reason I am writing specifically about this, is because Primark are giving £2 to 'Make A Wish' when you buy one of their Christmas jumpers. I believe this is going on from 6th-12th December. There are so many to choose from, and they are actually quite tasteful for Christmas jumpers. As you can see I got the penguin one! Its SO cosy, soft and warm. The penguin is so cute.

If you don't know what Make A Wish foundation is, its a charity that 'grant wishes' for children with life threatening illnesses. I think its great that £2 goes towards this charity, its a great cause. The jumpers aren't that pricey either, so I'd go and buy yourself one quick before they're all gone!

Have you got your Christmas jumper yet? Thanks for reading buys, expect many more festive posts on the build up too Christmas!
