Benefit Browzings

Hi girlies! The Benefit Browzings has been a favourite eyebrow 'tool' for a while now ever since I had discovered it in one of the eyeshadow sets by Benefit which even though there was only a small amount of it, it lasted me such a long time as I still use that eyeshadow set and there is still plenty of the eyebrow wax left. After ALMOST running out I decided I'd order the actual product itself as you can see above! 

Of course before even buying it at least I happily know I already love it. It is super easy to use which is probably one of the main reasons I adore it, as I use the hard angle brush to simply sweep across my eyebrow and it really doesn't get anymore difficult than that because personally I used to be so touchy when using eyebrow pencils as they are more prone to make a mess from pressing on to hard, not having a steady hand etc. so I found this pretty ideal for me. 

I got this is 'light' as I have blonde hair so personally I don't want majorly dark brown eyebrows, I enjoy them to be a more lighter colour because it works together  much better rather than having almost black huge scouse brows - that for me is a big no! But also this time as this contains the powder which you apply on top in order for the wax to stay longer so I am hoping this will work well as honestly I did notice that sometimes the wax could wear off throughout the day quite a bit.

December Wishlist

Hello lovelies, here is only PART of my wishlist but it's a nice little sneak peak for you all. You may notice that the majority of the clothing items are from missguided, I am just really enjoying what they have in stock at the moment, no other shops/sites are really getting my attention that much, so that would be why!

Tag: Why Do You Wear Make up?

Image from: weheartit and edited by me

So I've been this tag around quite a bit now and it seems to be getting pretty popular, so I thought I'd give it a go myself as the tag does seem pretty interesting and it's just general things you may want to know like how it all begun!

1. When did you begin wearing makeup?

I first started wearing makeup in high school in year 8, I started off using just foundation and mascara and then as the years went on my makeup collection began to grow and I started wearing eyeliner. The foundation I started of wearing was Maybelline dream matte mousse and I must of repurchased that whenever I ran out, for some reason I really liked it back then! Unfortunately though as I began to love makeup even more in year 9, I began to become pretty typical and got shades two times darker than I am, it's so funny to look back at now and also I had those not so attractive foundation lips, god knows how I thought that looked good.. But from then on I just became happily in love with makeup and yes found shades that actually suited me and became more sensible using it, probably not sensible when it comes to spending money on makeup though ehe!

2. How do you feel without makeup?

In all honesty, I am very insecure when I'm not wearing makeup I really do not like it, so usually when I am in the house and people are also in I will only have a bit of mascara and maybe some foundation which I would like to say is happily not too much and I don't mind that, I think I'm probably just a lot more nervous about my eyes being bare, I definitely need mascara. 

3. What do you like about makeup?

I just love experimenting with new things and just trying different products. It's just so much fun and I enjoy just doing my makeup in general. I like everything about makeup really!

4. Three holy grail items?

Number one: Collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer - I absolutely love this concealer, it's amazing and at such a low price it's the best!

Number two: Estee Lauder double wear lengthening mascara - I love ALL the Estee Lauder mascaras personally, they are definitely my favourite for mascara.

Number three: Clinique superbalanced makeup foundation - I have used this such a long time and as I foundation I will always be able to count on this, it has good coverage, and is very light and stays on long.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation Review

I have been scouring the internet reading reviews on many foundations, as I have been looking for a new foundation that has a good coverage and stays on long! And yes I finally managed to find the perfect one. This foundation is available in 30 shades, so I'm sure it will be ideal for everyone to find something that matches them well as a lot of foundations will usually only have a few basic shades, but this should pretty much cover everyone. My shade is 2N1 Desert Beige.

The foundation defiantly does not lie when it says 'Stay-in-Place' as it defiantly does, for me this is ideal and I'm sure for anyone else it would be too, it's so much easier not having to reapply through out the day as you see your makeup wearing off but with this it looks exactly the same and this really did honestly surprise me. Like I mentioned I was looking for a good coverage foundation, well this one defiantly gives a full coverage which is perfect preferably for me at the 'girly time of month' as that's when I find I break out most and feel bleurgh about my skin! Something people may not be too keen on is that it is a very matte finish and this isn't always to everyone's taste but I actually find it looks really good on my skin and doesn't appear cakey. 

Overall I really like this foundation at the moment and I would defiantly recommend it to anyone looking for a full coverage, long lasting throughout the day foundation!

Winter Wishlist

Today I have been feeling majorly in the Christmassy/winter mood! It's probably a little early to be saying Christmas mood, oops so I've called it 'winter'. I was at first going to call this the 'October wishlist' but I thought that it's not exactly what I want for October its something I want all through winter, yet we are actually in autumn, clearly I'm too ahead in time! Anywhere here you go, oh and you will notice it is pretty much just clothes, I was just internet shopping browsing at clothes really, I may do a separate one for beauty products ect though. Anyway here we go..

River Island beige open weave snood - £15 - I defiantly think I will be getting this, I think they are so nice and a much better option than scarves, I do like scarves but I like the way these are styled just like already folded as sometimes scarves can be a pain! I'm really glad I found this one, I actually pictured one in my head and surprisingly it actually looked quite like this.. So I'm happy with this find.

Nasty Gal split up knit - £25.16- I really like the look of this and unfortunately on the site it says 'final sale' and so I'm guessing this is going to be it's last selling of it and I'm probably going to be likely to miss it :( I wish it was staying though so I could wait a little longer to get it! I also really love knits around Christmas, so this would look perfect and also its quite dressy too, casual and dressy, always handy!

Topshop knee high socks - £6.00 - I remember saying to myself last Christmas that I wanted some over the knee wintery/Christmas socks, as I just think they'd look really cute to lounge around the house in to feel all warm and winterified! But these will have to do as these are all I can really find for a winter style knee high socks; they look warm!

River Islands Men's navy alpine lodge snowflakes print jumper - £38 - Yep this is a mans jumper! Again I think these are just really nice to lounge around the house in, and I love wearing boys clothes, they just seem so much more comfier and I love being buried in them!

Warehouse duffel coat - £95 - I really badly want a duffel coat, they look so nice in the winter and I really want to find one and I came across this one which I do really love but it's a bit much for me to be casually handing out for a coat, but I do need to find a cheaper alternative for this as I love it, but a girl can wish..

Enjoy the rest  of your AUTUMN!

September Wishlist

Here is a little peep into my September Wishlist, these are pretty much the main things I really want at the moment and I am saving up for. I defiantly can't wait to get the Burberry Sheer Foundation because I've heard a few things about this and it looks great, so excited! But unfortunately the high waisted jeans are sold out at the moment, so if they don't come back in stock they will remain a wish :(

What's on your September wishlist?

And the lipstick came with these two samples: the Double Wear Mascara and Sensuous Nude Perfume.

Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment Review

"If the earths not nourished you'll never grow beautiful flowers."

I had been searching google for like ages trying to find ways that I could grow my hair more quicker and I had seen a couple of reviews already about the Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment, so I decided I'd give it a go and see how it works me. Some people actually didn't get the Lee Stafford Hair Growth Shampoo and Conditioner  but I decided I would because every little helps!

To use this product you are to use it in between using the shampoo and conditioner and leave the treatment on for 5 minutes but I actually left it on for 15 - 20 minutes, I just figured that if its left on for longer the most it could do is maybe help more or do nothing at all during my extra time added, so no harm done. On the tub it recommends you to use an egg size amount, I personally found that the quantity of what was in the tub was not quite enough because I ran out quite fast and I think with this sort of thing an egg size is quite a lot! 

What the tub says:

"Protein based complex to fertilize your follicles, creating a healthy environment on the scalp to help hair grow faster and reach its maximum length"
  • Vital hair and scalp complex helps to reduce hair loss
  • Improves follicle health which in turn increases the ability of the hair to anchor to the scalp
  • Soothing formulation reduces irritation and moisturizes the scalp
  • Addresses hair and scalp ageing at a cellular level
  • Improvement in tensile strength to give body and texture by penetrating the hair reaching the inner cortex
  • Improves volume and fell of the hair

I really love these products the shampoo, conditioner and treatment and will defiantly be buying more once I run out as unfortunately I have already ran out off the treatment, so just waiting on the shampoo and conditioner. The products smell absolutely amazing on my hair and the smell even stays afterwards - I am in love with it, my hair always feels really healthy, silky and smooth also. I am actually really happy to say that I have noticed a difference with the length of my hair, I defiantly think it's grown, obviously dramatically but defiantly has grown and so it's helped!

The Body Shop Mango and Sweet Lemon Body Butters

I had recently decided that I wanted to try some new body moisturizers, just to try something different and experiment. I had seen a couple of reviews on The Body Shop Body Butters and thought I'd give them a go, so I decided I would buy the Sweet Lemon Body Butter and the Mango Body Butter! 

I was really pleased with these purchases and actually didn't expect them to be as good as they are. They are really nice and hydrating to the skin and you're not left waiting around for ages with that sticky feeling waiting for it to sink in like with most, also I would defiantly agree that with these that a little goes a long way.

Multiple Foundations Reviews | Dior, MAC & Clinique..

I decided that I would pull 3 branded foundations together and review them in order to see which is possibly most best and hopefully this could also help anyone else who may be trying to pick out a good branded foundation that will be worth their money! The 3 foundations I am doing this on are the Dior DiorSkin Forever Foundation, MAC Mineralize SatinFinish SPF 15 and Clinique Superbalanced foundation.

Dior DiorSkin Forever Flawless Perfection Foundation in 023 (£31.00) -  It is a light-medium coverage and blends really easily on the face as it becomes more of a creamy formula when being rubbed in, also it sets nicely and doesn't look cakey at all. I find that this foundation gives you a very natural look and would work on people really well who have quite clear skin, so for me I would need a bit more coverage, but on a good day I find this a really nice foundation as like I mentioned it looks very natural and healthy.

MAC Mineralize SatinFinish SPF 15 in NW25 (£24.00) - When buying this foundation, there was defiantly trouble! The shop assistant had matched up my skin tone and gave me NW25 which quite clearly is too dark for me, so I was very unhappy about this as I felt like I just wasted my money. Anyway I still find this foundation got even worse, when applying it, it sets really quickly on the skin so you barely get to blend it in and so it just clumps on the face like a dried up cheap foundation. I was really disappointed with this as it was my first MAC foundation try and it ended badly and pretty much a waste of money! A MAC foundation that I shall be hopefully purchasing soon will be the MAC studio sculpt SPF 15 foundation, as I have heard good things about this and can not wait to try it, maybe I will have hope with this, so look forward to a review on that!

Clinique Superbalanced Makeup Foundation in 03 ivory (£21.50) - This is one of my favourite foundations, I have been using it for so so so long, I always have this foundation at the ready again for whenever I run out. It offers a full coverage look, and at the same time it is really natural looking and does not look cakey. It blends in really easily and stays on for very long in the day, I never feel like I need a touch up with this foundation, honestly! Although the only fault about this foundation would be that in the heat I find that it comes out quite easily which isn't really useful for on hot summer days, for this foundations luck though with the english weather its not really that hot much but I would not use this if you wanted a foundation to take on holiday with you. Also this foundation matches my skin really well!

'Get To Know Me' Tag

.I cried like some time this week ha but I don't think I'll get all into sharing why I cried.

3. Do you have kids?


4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?

I'd hope so! I try to be as nice and friendly as I can, so maybe I would like myself, maybe I wouldn't, maybe I'd find me and myself too alike and I might not like that. Could feel in competition with myself, I've always wondered this question though, it would be interesting to know..

5. Do you use sarcasm a lot?

I used to use sarcasm so so so much! I still sorta do use it but defiantly not as much as I used to.

6. Will you ever Bungee Jump?

I don't think I could ever actually do it haha i'm such a wimp and i'm so scared of heights!

10. Scary movie or happy endings?

I love watching scary movies at the start then I'll usually regret it because I'd be so scared :( I think its just the thrill and its fun to watch with other people because you can joke around and what have ya. I like happy ending too, always cuteee

11. Favorite smells?

I love the smell of coconut, like I think an all time favourite smell for me has to be palmers cocoa butter, it smells amazing! I also really love vanillary smells, they are good :)

12. Summer or winter?

BOTH. For one I love summer because I love all the summer clothing that comes out and then going to BBQ's and just having nice days out in the sun enjoying yourself, but then other times I can just hate the sun and be wishing for it to be raining because I can be too hot and bothered or if I'm stuck in the house, I feel extremely bored and as if I have nothing great to do haha. I also love love love winter,for one because my birthday is in December which is winter time which is always a good thing, oh and plus christmas! And I love being all warm in the house watching nice films (christmas films if its christmas, i love christmas ehe) with a nice warm drink whilst I can see people trudging past in the cold snow!

16. Where were you born?

I was born in Manchester, which is where I live now!

18. Do you have any pets?

At the moment I have a cat called Boo but hopefully soon I should maybe have a new kitten!

19. Favorite movie?

I always find this such a hard question, there is so many films I just love and I love all types of genres of films, well especially actions, adventures, romantic, comedys and romatic comedys! Off the top of my head thinking films I remember enjoying are; Death Sentence, which is a action film and How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days, that is a romantic comedy I would say and of course everyone will know this but I do love it, its Bridget Jones Dairies!

20. Do you have any siblings?

I have two older sisters

My first ever blog post

I have decided recently that i wanted to begin a fashion/beauty blog as I read plenty of them myself and so today I have finally made one! I am hoping to maybe get the hang of this a lot more as I do more posts but at the moment I'm just getting used to it and so more posts ect. shall come this way very soon.

So to start with a little bit of a brief on myself.. My names Megan and from Manchester! Like I said I've always been reading fashion/beauty blogs but never actually made one myself, also I'm always watching beauty and fashion gurus on youtube as I absolutely just love that and have always contemplated to whether begin doing that in the future maybe! But I think I'll have to have a good think on that one. I do enjoy fashion very much and I am always playing around with make-up as that is one of the things I enjoy the most! So I guess this is all that is really relevant, so wish me luck with this blog!

Love Megan
