First impressions of MAC Swansea

It used to be a luxury for me to go to a MAC counter. The closest one was in Cardiff and I would hardly ever go there. It would be a big planned shopping trip. Until I recently found out MAC have launched a counter in Debenhams Swansea store.

Roaccutane Journey | Month 1

I have been taking Roaccutane for a month now and am going to share my experience so far.

When I started taking the tablets I knew my fattiest meal would be in the evening so decided that would be the best time to take them, however I found it hard to remember to take them and my boyfriend was always reminding me. I take my other tablets first thing in the morning and am in a routine doing that, so I just think it’s going to take time to get used to taking these tables with my meal.

Review – Proactiv+ Repairing Concealer

After trying the Proactiv+ 3 Step Skincare Range, I was really intrigued to try more of their products. I was kindly sent the Proactiv Repairing Concealer* to test out.

The Repairing Concealer is marketed so that you can treat your spots and the same time as hiding them. With salicylic acid in it, it’s targeted to treat each individual spot, as you apply the concealer to cover up the imperfections. This concealer is a quad and advertised so that you can customize the shades to match your skin tone.

Starting Roaccutane

I have suffered with spots since I was a teenager and have spoken about it previously on my blog, but have never really said how bad it effects my self esteem. When I look at myself in the mirror, bare skin, I feel like I want to claw my face off. I despise the way I look and it’s all down to spots. I always want to cover up face, I put tonnes of foundation on and just want to hide behind a mask.

Back to college essentials!

Untitled

As some of you may know, after 3 years, I have decided go back to college and I will be starting next week to follow my dream of going into healthcare OH MY GOD, I’M BACK IN EDUCATION! The funny thing is I never really enjoyed college the first time around, I mainly just liked the social aspect. However I am seriously excited to start learning again, I’m not sure why exactly as I think a few months down line I’ll be crying ‘WHHYYY, why did I do this to myself’. Perhaps it’s because I am doing something completely different and it feels like a fresh start. Who knows? But Monday can’t come quick enough.

An honest chat..

IMG_0984 (2)

I feel like having a chat. I’m not sure why really, I just feel like expressing myself today. I’m feeling quite spaced out, like nothing seems real and the days are just flowing past. Is this what it feels like growing up? My mother always says the days just fly by. It seems as if life has no purpose, I mean it obviously does. I just feel like I am not getting anywhere.

NYX Liquid Lipstick Comparison Review

Recently there’s been a lot of talk about NYX products, now that they are readily available in boots stores and online. I thought I’d try out three of their lip products and do a review to compare them.

First up is the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in London.

Review – Spectrum Brushes

I swear Spectrum blew up overnight. One minute I was browsing through their website thinking ‘Wow these look amazing, why haven’t heard of them before’. Then the next, every blogger and their mum were raving about them. I even saw loads of bloggers tweeting about an event. However I was lucky enough to be given a discount code to get my hands on some.

I decided to purchase two brushes I really needed. An eye defining brush and a contour brush. The two I picked up are;Β  Contour Queen & Draw Me Pretty.
