Where the heck have I been?

Hi all!

I know I've been a bit quiet lately (apologies), but I didn't want to continue writing if I wasn't inspired to do so. Lately I've been trying out some products that I feel I want to write about. So please bare with me !

I'm still here! I filmed a video about a month ago and I still haven't gotten around to editing it yet. So when I feel I have the chance (and the inspiration) to edit and upload it, I will share it on the blog here.

Thanks to everyone who still follows the blog xxx it means a lot to me. I've some exciting things coming up and I want to share them on here, so things might get a little bit more personal ��

Thanks for baring with me, and hopefully you will be getting some quality posts.

It's something that I've been happening for over 10 years. Grey. When I first seen that tiny root of grey creep out I will admit, I was devastated. I quick dash down the stairs to my mum to have her exterminate the crown of my head for anymore of "the buggers". Maybe I had lost the only hair I found in my panic, or maybe it was my mother protecting me from the thought of going grey while still a teen, but she said there was nothing there to worry about. Skip head a couple of months...

My thoughts: Fake Make up

I don't mean for this to be a rant-like style post and apologies if it does sound slightly. There's something that's been bugging me for a few days and I feel that I need to speak about it. It is as the title of the post suggests is fake make up. I thought about doing a video on this topic on my youtube channel - but I thought no - it is best for me to get my thoughts down in a post.

So what brought me to write about this post? On Monday I was browsing on my phone (yes Facebook) and it came up in my news feed about a friend of mine liking some photo and commenting on it. So being the curious George I clicked in to see the photo (stalker mode I'm fully aware of this), and it was a photo relating to a competition. I'm all for competitions I won The Balm's "How 'bout them apples?" palette before on Facebook from Cloud 10. But in this photo that my friend that liked etc, had a photo of make up that had MAC branded all over it.

Wish List | What I'm lusting after

It's short and simple. They are not needs, they are wants. Well maybe the Magic Cream is a need (I'm convincing myself it is!)

  1. The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer. This champagne highlight, although I may have a similar dupe for it from a 2011 MAC collection Chez Chez Lame (You can see it in action here) Is it really a dupe though? From looking at other swatches of both online they seem quite similar but can Mary-Lou Manizer a little bit more finely milled? This is something I know I can miss out on, but I don't think I should.
  2. NARS Creamy Concealer. I've become a concealer addict lately. I feel I don't always have to go for high coverage foundations and just go in with the concealer in the areas that I need it in. I'm a victim of reading as soon as someone raves about a product I just want to try it out. I've finished my collection lasting perfection concealer and I've about a quarter of a bottle left of my MAC Pro Longwear concealer. My concealer love affair must continue!
  3. Real Techniques Nic's Picks. I'm rather looking forward to seeing these in shops. I'm a huge fan (as well as every other make up lover) of these brushes. The quality is unbelievable and they are soo cheap compared to other brands. There are so many make up artists that use the Real Techniques brushes - they are popping up everywhere.
  4. Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte's Magic Cream. This infamous cream from the iconic make up artist Charlotte Tilbury. For years she's been known in the fashion and make up world for her "magic cream". It's a formula that Charlotte has been mixing for years and she's been using on models for over 20 years. It has anti-aging properties and skin boosting loveliness. It's been raved about from everyone that's tried it and well I just need to know what the hype is all about. With it having an SPF 15 (something I find I tend to use a lot of moisturizers without SPF, it's not intentional - I just realize  after I'm half way through the bottle), it's one less step for me, as over the summer I got in the habit of adding an extra SPF over my moisturizer before my make up. Retailing at €90 is very expensive for a moisturizer, but is it more than just a moisturizer? This is something I might have to wait till Santa comes.

Thanks for stopping by :)
