Current Faves

Hello everyone!

Today I moved into my uni halls and I've now got a laptop of my own, (with an SD card port!!) and a fully functioning camera, so I will definitely be posting a lot more frequently!

Just thought I'd show you some current favourites that I've picked up

Collection 2000 Cream Puff Moisturising Lip Cream in Cotton Candy 1
Max Factor Weightless Foundation in Light Ivory
L'oreal Glam Shine Lipgloss in Juicy Rose Glow

and the obligatory rubbish hand swatches... 

The foundation is really lovely, and a perfect shade. It feels really silky and I love the slightly dewy slightly matte finish. The lipgloss I ordered off Ebay after falling in love with it in Superdrug. Seriously guys, if you see something you like, especially if it's a slightly older product make sure you check Ebay first. A lot of wholesalers sell their products on there for much much cheaper. For example, my fave mascara Max Factor 2000 Calorie is about £8 in the shops, I picked up a brand new one for under a fiver. 

I really like the consistency of the lip cream, and the taste is just yummy! It's kind of filling my MAC Impassioned void, which I really want but can't justify spending £13.50 on. Seriously MAC, ya didn't need to put the price up.

Also loving Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer (along with the rest of the world)
HD Brows Kit
YSL Rouge Volupte in no.2

Hope you're all well!

24ct Gold On My Ring Finger

Hey everyone! If you're wondering where I've been, my camera broke whilst I was on holiday with friends in Spain! Not
much new with me, on the 25th September im off to Southampton university eeee

Anyways what better way to ease me back into blogging than with a NOTD :)

Here I used one of the maybelline nude nail varnishes (which are £1 off in superdrug now, buy buy buy!) in shade ummm, Rose Poudre. Btw, the shade names are only written on the top of the lid, annoying!

I then covered the ring finger in torn up pieces of gold leaf, taking inspiration from Fee at Makeup Savvy :) this stuff literally cost me £3 for 10 sheets and I used barely a quarter of a sheet for this.

Hope this post turned out alright, posting this from my iPod (which I dropped whilst on a cross trainer and completely shattered the screen... Always me!)

Please let me know what you've been up to, I'm still reading allll the posts in my dashboard everyday :)

Hope you're all well, whether you're starting college, uni or if it's just same old same old, I wanna know all about it :)

love you all loadz, have no idea how you've all stuck with me but I'm so grateful

Love Sophie
