Stila cosmetics

The bargains of all bargains has been found. Poundland has Stila!


I bought two Stila SPF 30, tinted moisturisers - they are oil free which is fab because my skin would not be happy taking on more oil along with a Stila illuminating powder - SPF 12 in shade 70 Watts. This was just a refill but still an amazing deal. The illuminating powder costs £18 pounds to buy, a saving of £17 - cha ching!! I couldn't find the price for the moisturiser, but I think it costs around £20 to buy.

Poundland, my new favourite place.

First Youtube Video | Lush Haul


Hello, so I finally decided to do my first ever youtube video.
Watching it back I think I should be locked away, my voice sounds alien and I don't look at the camera a whole lot.
But oh well, beginners mistakes.

So the video is a "Mini Lush Haul".







Products Mentioned:


  • Melting Marshmallow
  • You've been Mangoed
  • Woosh Shower Jelly
  • Tea Tree Toner Tab
  • Blackberry Bath Bomb
  • Jumping Juniper Shampoo Bar

Hope you enjoy, and I'm sorry that it cut off at the end. The "hopefully, maybe " video was a Glossybox video. 

Thanks for reading/watching :) 



Glossybox, July

This is my 3rd Glossybox, and i feel that it is the best one I have received.
This box is meant to be about Rocking the Festival Look. I think its a bit odd for them to have this box now, as I think most festivals are at the start of the month, maybe they should have made this box the one for June and Junes box for this month.

The box contained:

Elizabeth Arden Visable Difference Skin Balancing Lotion SPF 15 -
This is OIL FREE - yes, something that my skin will love. I'm not really sure what else I can say about this, I'm looking forward to trying this. However I don't think I'll buy this, the full size lotion is £32, a little ut my price range I think.

Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics Lip Frosting -
I think the size you get in this box is the full size which would cost £10 to buy, a little pricey for lip care. The packaging is very cute and it smells amazing. Apparently you can use this on your cheeks as well, but I imagine it being a little sticky.

Monu Golden Glow -
This is classed as a "face and body bronzer", I'm not quite sure of it yet. Maybe it's the colour, or maybe its the smell or maybe even a mix of both. I'll try it but I don't think it'll be getting bought - the price of £23 doesn't do much for my liking it.

Clynol Salon Exclusive Enrich Colour Shampoo -
I don't have coloured hair, and don't particularly like getting new hair products. The shampoo smells nice, a full size bottle costs £9.35. Shampoo that costs almost £10 doesn't quite catch me.

HD Brows Eye and Brow Palette -
This is the holy grail of the box, this is the full sized version and costs £19.95 to buy. This makes up for the lack of HD brows tweezers in last months box. My palette is in "Vamp" I am thrilled that this was in my box.

I would say I can't wait for next months box, but I unsubscribed so I could let my bank fill up again. If next months box is super then I shall be getting it again. 


Thanks for reading :)

MAC lipstick

Recently I've been wanting to buy a MAC lipstick, but couldn't justify paying £14 for one lipstick. So like all good bargain hunters I set out on a quest for the wondrous land of eBay.  I won two limited edition lipsticks, one Lady Gaga which I snapped up at an amazing £6.50. The colour is sheer plum, and I adore it! It did come without the box, but I saved £7.50 by buying it from the brilliant eBay.

 Swatched it looks like this, it looks a little orange. I would say it has orange under tones but after a while of wearing it, it begins to look more pinky.
I adore darker lip colours, nothing makes me happier than a dark colour.

My other lipstick hasn't arrived yet and I hold very little hope on it ever arriving.
I am hoping to start making youtube videos, and this will probably appear in it. Along with other lovely things from ASOS and Lush.

I look forward to making videos, and hopefully my lovely followers would be interested in watching them.

Thank you again for looking at my blog and if you do click the follow button, thank you 1000x more.
