Golden Globes 2017: The Best Dressed

6:02 pm

If you're anything like me you'll love award shows purely mostly because of the gorgeous dresses the celebs wear. This year, at the 74th Golden Globe Awards, there were some amazing gowns so I thought I'd compile a list of my faves...

LUST LIST: Missguided Jan 2017

5:06 pm

I spend the majority of my life online 'shopping'. I say shopping when really I mean browsing my favourite online shops for hours and adding everything I like to my cart and then crying when I see the total. I am way too poor to have this much of a shopping obsession.

So my Lust List posts will focus on one online shop and the bits and bobs that I'm lusting after this month but can't actually afford *sobs*.

Missguided is always the first place I head to when I want a piece I've spied on Instagram because they are always on top of the trends, no one else seems to replicate the newest trends as fast as Missguided does.

Colour Pop Liquid Lipstick Swatches + Review

6:59 pm

Let me just start off by saying that I am OBSESSED with Colour Pop's liquid lipsticks - since receiving my parcel a month or so ago they are the only product I have worn on my lips. The formula is truly incredible, not drying at all, crazily pigmented and they last forever. (I'm not being paid to promote this, pinky promise).

I purchased 10 lipsticks in total: the For Fox Sake pack of 5 (incl. My Jam, Trap, Echo Park, Man Eater and Beeper), Cheap Thrills, Bianca, Wild Nothing, Clueless, Dopey and Tiny Chum (from the Hello Kitty collection). Processing took around 3 days and then delivery only about a week (!!), however I did have to pay customs fees, although that wasn't totally unexpected anyway. My babies were delivered in a gorgeous lil' Colour Pop mailer which just made it feel all the more like a gift.

Disclaimer: I have never, ever 'done' lip  swatches before, like, ever. So I apologise for the iffy photos and wonky lines, I can only improve from here!

Okay, now time for my super snazzy, first-time arm swatches! Click the image to enlarge.

I was actually surprised at how different the colours looked swatched on my arm as opposed to on my lips, I feel like the photographs taken with flash were definitely more indicative of the true colour. Oh and can we please just ignore the fact that I wrote 'Wild Nothing' on the second to last photo, that swatch is definitely 'Cheap Thrills' - oops.

Lip swatch coming soon - my lips got WAY too sore and I was losing daylight at this point

Again, lip swatch coming soon. This is my ultimate favourite shade out of the lot though, closely followed by Clueless.

Can I just say that applying liquid lipstick without a lip liner is SO FREAKIN' HARD. Honestly, lip liner is a true godsend, I think I might need to find lip liners to match all of these gorgeous shades now - help!

So yep, I think this marks the end of my first ever lip swatch experience - yay, go me! Lemme know your honest opinions in the comments lovelies.

Much love x

P.S. The bangin' choker you can see in these photographs is from my store, Elnique.
