Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara Review

I've seen so many people on twitter recently talking about the new Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara that I couldn't really not try it for myself. As in the name, it's supposed to create a false lash look by plumping and volumising lashes. Personally I prefer more natural, fluttery looking lashes and I'm really not one to wear false lashes either, so I was intrigued to see how I got on with this mascara. One of it's main selling points is that it contains styling wax which is supposed to keep lashes lifted. I've never heard of a mascara containing wax before, but it does seem to be a bit thicker and wetter than most mascaras I've tried.

Everyday Makeup Essentials

When I set out to do this post about my everyday makeup essentials I didn't actually think I wore that much makeup day to day. Then I laid all the products out to take photos and now I seriously can't believe I put all of that on my face! This is what I'd use for a 'natural' look too, it really makes you think! But anyway, these are the products I'd use if I want to make a bit of an effort without looking like I'm wearing a lot of makeup. It probably takes me about 5-10 minutes to put all this on but usually I don't like to rush my makeup application. I have been known to spend over an hour just on my makeup!

Little Things That Make Me Happy

When you're having one of those really awful, cruddy, nothing's going your way days, what do you like to do to cheer yourself up? I was thinking about this recently when I was having one of those days. I realised there are things I always do without fail to make myself feel better. It's interesting when you stop and think about all the little things that make you happy that you do over and over again. We really are creatures of habit I suppose!

The Balm Nude 'Tude Palette - Review, Swatches & Tutorial

The Balm Nude'Tude Palette was a gift from my Sister this Christmas and I literally haven't touched any of my other palettes since I got it. It's been the only one I've reached for every day since! I know I'm a bit late to the party considering The Balm Cosmetics have been around for a few years now, but it's only recently that my local Superdrug started stocking it and I got to see the palette in real life. Anyone else think Superdrug has got a lot better for makeup lately!? They're so much better than Boots now! But anyway as I said I've been using the Nude 'Tude Palette everyday and in my opinion, it's one of those all round versatile palettes that every makeup addict needs in their stash!

Recent Additions To My Skincare Routine

I've been trialling quite a few new skincare products recently, some of which I got in the Look Fantastic Advent Calendar over Christmas and others I bought myself. I really started paying more attention to my skincare routine in 2015, figuring out what worked for me and what didn't. However I feel like now my skin has maybe gotten used to some of the products I've been using regularly (is that even a thing?!) and it doesn't respond in the same way it used to. What used to treat my spots now doesn't really do anything for example. Plus it's always interesting to try out new products on your skin to see whether they make more of a difference.

Maybelline Baby Lips Balm & Blush Review

I have a confession to make, I've never actually tried the original Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balms. I remember when they first came out they were hugely popular amongst beauty bloggers but I just never got round to trying them. I'm more a lipstick kind of girl and not really interested in balms. When I saw the new Maybelline Baby Lips Balm & Blush in my local Boots however, I immediately wanted to try them. I'll admit I was mostly drawn to the odd shaped, brightly coloured packaging, but also I genuinely quite liked the idea of a 2 in 1 balm and blush product.


The Easiest Way To Overcome Anxiety

The short answer? There isn't one. 

(This post is a little different to what I usually put up so if you're regular reader who's looking for more beauty posts, then I promise there will be more soon!)

If you've just found this post then it's more than likely you're in quite a desperate situation right now. I want to say how sorry I am because I've been there too. Searching the internet for any information that would help ease the anxious chaos in my mind and body. Unfortunately there isn't a quick solution, but I'm sure you know that already.
