Hey again!

I'm back with another new product review for you all. This one is a little weird for me because I am very much a matte kind of gal; matte lips, matte get it. However, this posts' lil star is a lipgloss from the Too Faced Sweet Peach collection.

So without rambling on, lets just get into this review!

Hellooo!! Yet another new makeup product that I got for my birthday..but I cannot ignore this!

This is the beautiful HudaBeauty 3D highlighter palette in the Pink Sands edition! I've never tried anything by this brand and to be honest, despite being told that this is really huge in the makeup world, I'd never heard of this before!

Lets dive in!

Hello! Firstly, what a bloody mouthful this product is! As you can probably tell, this is a review on one of the products in the new porefessional range by Benefit.

I'm sure you've heard of the legendary porefessional primer, which is great...and they've decided to extend it!

Without hesitation, here's my thoughts!

 Hello! As some of you may know I recently turned 20, and of course received some makeup for my birthday. I'd been looking for a good powder contour palette for aaaages, and had such a hard time choosing.

Cream contouring just doesn't seem to work for me, plus I'm useless and I have no idea at all how to do it.

I'd been debating for ages whether to ask for the Anastasia Beverley Hills contour palette, but I swear it was like £40 and honey I ain't paying that or getting anyone else to pay that amount. So I looked on the other end of the spectrum; I considered the NYX powder contour palette but I just wasn't sure.

That was until I saw this beauty on BeautyBay and fell in love. I was immediately drawn to the colours, which I'll get into in a second.

So yeah, kindly I was given this for my birthday by Josh and it came in the most beautiful white box all wrapped up in black paper, I felt like royalty haha!

Anyway, lets get into the review!

Hi! I recently went to a dinner and dance that had a kind of formal, shirt and tie dress code. Obviously as soon as I found out I was going I was immediately stressed about what to wear.

In the end I decided to go with the gorgeous white dress you can see in the picture.

Keep reading to see the deets!

Hey everyone! I've decided to start a new monthly feature on my blog, called 2Buy2See2Read...which basically are posts where I recommend things for you guys to read, see and buy. I know favourites posts have been in my blog before and are kind of the cult favourite, but I wanted to make it my own! Kind of like you see "holy grails and fails" or "hits and oh god no's" on YouTube.

Anyway, I struggle to find products to write about in monthly favourites so I think this little regular feature will motivate me to find new things to talk about!! I'm really excited to share my favourite things with you because I know so many people will love them too. My blog has been getting so much positive feedback and new viewers recently and I'm so proud that I'm 100% focussing on this...I really love it!

Without further ado, let us start this month's post!
