Mini Beauty Haul - Topshop, MAC, Ardell

Hi Guys!

To get myself started back into blogging I thought i'd show you just a couple of bits that i've recently picked up. I've tried to not spend too much money in January but I was in Amsterdam a couple of days ago for my boyfriends birthday so passed duty free and I also had a Topshop voucher. So here's what I got...

MAC Stone Lipstick 

I've wanted this lipstick for what seems like forever since I've heard so many Youtubers raving about it. I'm yet to try it but love how it looks and it is such a unique colour for me as it's something I'm not used to. Hopefully you'll see this in a favourites post soon!

Topshop Mink Lipstick

As I said I had a Topshop voucher and I took this oppurtunity to try out one of their lipsticks. I swatched all the colours that my local store had but this is the one that stuck out most to me. I worn it a couple of times in the last week and I love it, it's the perfect browny mauve shade and is so creamy. I definitely want to pick up more shades of the Topshop lipsticks as supposedly they're made in the same factory as MAC and there formulas are identical.

Ardell Natural Demi Wispies

Another product I've wanted to try for so long, mainly because of Youtuber Nicole Guerriero. I have no eyelash application skills so I always give up and end up just packing on mascara instead but supposedly these lashes are great for beginners and are also stunning so i'm ready to give them a go!

Formula 10.0.6 Pores Be Pure Skin-Clarifying Mud Mask

Another product I picked up in Topshop mainly because I love face masks. At the moment I pretty much only use the Mask of Magnaminty from Lush but I want to try out some new great, affordable ones. I got this mask in the scent strawberry + yarrow so i'm interested to see how this makes my skin feel as it's meant to target clogged pores.

MAC Ellie Goulding I'll Hold My Breath Blush/Bronzer Duo

Last but not least is this MAC duo. Personally I'm not bothered by Ellie Goulding as a singer but I really did love the look of this collection. I only picked up this product however because I thought it would be perfect for travel as it is a 2-in-1 product. I've tried out the bronzer a few times now and its a sheer natural pretty bronze but I do really like how it sits on my foundation. I am yet to try the blush as to me it is more of a spring/summer colour but it swatches very creamy and pigmented.

That's all the products i've picked up recently so I hope you enjoyed! If there's any new products you recommend let me know!

Thanks for reading,
Beth xoxo

Life Update - Back At It

Hey Guys!
It's literally been 8 months since I last blogged but I got lazy, didn't blog for a while and thought it was too far gone to save, but I'm back to start again and give it another try.
I've got SO much more makeup to share since I last blogged and like to think my skills might have improved? I've been working a lot at Uni and also have been working on my music a lot which is again why my blog did not survive the last 8 months....
Aiming to post once a week or thereabout so we'll see how it goes! In the meantime here's a recent picture of me from Christmas time and I hope to be back soon! Also not too keen on my actual blog name.... any suggestions? Social media links are all below!
