Feeling Pink

One thing that I’ve been on the hunt for recently is pretty blouses! You know when you’re planning on wearing jeans and “a nice top” for a night out, and all you have is the same bodysuit you always wear and… The same three tshirts you always wear. First world problems.

I found this amazing little number on ASOS – it’s by Manchester based brand, Glamorous. I think it was originally £26, but with a nifty little discount code, I got it for £20 and free delivery. Dream.

It’s a beautiful dusty rose colour, and the thing I love the most about this blouse is the pleats! It starts at the collar and comes down pretty much half-way. It looks a lot more expensive than it’s retailing for, and it’s the perfect item to dress up any outfit. 

I paired my blouse with my favourite snakeskin boots from Shoeaholics – by Carvela, the sworn-by Joni jeans at Topshop and this beaut coat by BooHoo.

New Beauty Buys

As my previous post on cruelty free make up got such a good response (click here to catch up) I thought I’d do another on my new buys.

I’ve recently been introduced to brand Revolution (which you can pick up in Superdrug) and I love it! I’ve bought a contour and blush pallet which are amazing

This is my first contour pallet so I’ve got nothing to compare to, I did have my eye on the Anastasia Beverley Hills pallet but never got round to buy it, but this one is so good for me and so reasonably priced – £8

It has a range of colours and a shimmery shade for cheek bones and brows, and is really blendable. You don’t really need much product which is good too! (Depending on how you like your make up though of course). 

Their blush pallet is sooo pretty and almost doubles as a highlighter. I usually get my big Spectrum fan brush and swipe across two colours to get a mix – my new go to! 

Another brand which I’ve been dying to try is Kiko. I picked up (before I got my Revolution contour pallet) a brown concealer to contour my cheek bones and around my forehead and this beautiful blush stick which is now one of my firm favourites! The colour is kind of a deep dusty rose and has a slight shimmer to it.

I started blending this in with my beauty blender but I’ve come to realise it actually looks better blending with just my fingers as my beauty blender actually takes too much product away. It’s such a nice shade and really easy for day to day wear. I can’t believe how reasonably priced Kiko are, I need another shop soon I think!! 

Whilst picking up my contour pallet from Superdrug the other day I spotted this Gosh setting power and was curious to try. I always see pictures of girls “baking” and “setting” their make up with loose powders and it does give such a nice finish and I have to say this works wonders on my skin. I have quite oily skin and at midday my concealer always seems to be fading – this keeps it set in place and looking freshly applied! Honestly, I’ll be using this from now on. 

My second Gosh buy was this bottle of illuminating drops – I tested it on the back of my hand and although I probably don’t need ANY more highlighters it was 3 for 2 in Superdrug so it’d be rude not to! It’s super pretty and stays on all day, it’s so easy to apply again – I just drop some onto my fingertips and blend in.

My last buy which I bought a few weeks ago on my birthday is the Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes mascara. I got a tester delivered with a parcel a few months ago and I couldn’t stop using it. I always struggle with mascara, I like long, thick lashes that don’t droop and flake over the course of the day and the majority I have tried just don’t work for me. This lifts your lashes, gives plenty of thickness and volume and I looove it. It’s £25 so a little pricier than I’d is usually like to pay, but for me it’s so worth it. And it lasts forever! (I still actually have my tester). 

I hope you enjoyed part two of my new beauty buys! Keep an eye out for my next post coming soon.
