Current favourites.

Hey there! so i havent done monthly favourites before, and i think its a little outdated these days! however, i felt like showing you what im enjoying lately, and i think ill do these posts randomly just when i have things to show you! i have 3 skincare, 2 makeup, a wax melt, and some music too! so lets get started.

First up we have a wax melt! i mentioned wax melts a few weeks ago, and in that haul i picked up the rainbow splash bramble wax £5. I have had the shot pot of rainbow splash and i love the smell, so i grabbed the bramble snap and im so glad i did! its so nice just being able to grab a chunk and pop it in the burner, and its bramble wax so of course it smells amazing, its meant to smell like fruit chews and honestly id say its fruitier than that!

Right onto the makeup! First off the E.l.f HD setting powder £7.50, now i bought this a while ago but have only started wearing makeup regularly again over the past few weeks, and this set powder is lovely! i used to use it years ago back when elf was in the uk the first time around. its very fine, easy to buff away and keeps everything matte! big thumbs up from me.

Oh mascara, we all want the perfect one dont we? i wouldnt say this is my perfect one, but the soap & glory thick & fast mascara £10.50 is really doing it for me right now! it makes my lashes look full and long, matching the dark purple eye i like doing perfectly, it doesnt flake or smudge and is easy to remove!, it doesnt hold a curl sadly, but ill take everything else for that!

First up in my favourite skincare right now, is the no7 nourishing cleansing balm £13.00. i picked this up in a haul a few weeks ago and god i love this cleansing balm! its so good, i reviewed it fully here but if your looking for a good basic in the best way cleansing balm check this out!

I bought this speed plump miracle moisture mouse £14.00, now i know i used this a while ago but it had been a while! trying it again, i really like it. Its a very interesting texture, like a oily mouse, its hydrating and feels lovely on the skin.

Finally for skincare, we have the Revolution skin mild skin exfoliator 5% lactic acid & hyaluronic acid £6.00, this month i tried a tonne of the revolution skincare products, and i love all of them but the lactic acid has really stood out for me as a really gentle exfoliating option.

Ive been really back into musical soundtracks at the minute, this video from west end live introduced me too the musical six, i fell in love with it very quickly! its a really quirky fun soundtrack that can be found on spotify.

Along the same vein, i have been a watcher of carrie fletcher for a while, and shes currently in the west end production of heathers,i hadnt heard of heathers until she got the part but now oh wow its so good! again, the full soundtrack (not sung by carrie sadly) is on spotify.

So thats what im enjoying at the moment, id love to hear what your loving right now!

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara.


Hey! So i bought recently a travel essentials box from ASOS full of mini travel sizes, and i bought it because i thought it would be perfect so i could try a few things out that i had wanted to try for a while and tell you lot! i had wanted to make a post about the box too but by the time my box arrived it was sadly sold out.

So, Too Faced better than sex mascara £19.00 is of course a cult mascara, ever since it came out people have lost there minds over it falling in love with this mascara all over the place. Of course, the number one thing everyones focused on is the name,  of course calling something better than sex is a bold claim!

Its an interesting line to go down for a mascara, but it does do what its meant too, it makes people want to try it! so when i got this mini, this was put on my test list straight away.

So they have a long story about how the brush is modelled on a “blonde haired siren” which you can quickly tell is meant to be marilyn monroe, i dont know if the brush is exactly modelled on her, but it is a bristle brush in a hourglass shape.

the mascara formula itself is rather dry, very dry to be honest i was worried mine had ran out! but that could also be because i have a sample, but yeah its rather dry.

So ill be honest that going in i didnt want to like this mascara, i didnt want to fall for the gimmick of the name and i didnt want to like a mascara when the full size is £19….that didnt work out.

The first coat is rather underwhelming, it does coat the lashes very nicely however and i do find that this brush really can grip will onto them. it separates well and leaves lashes lengthened and honestly much more natural looking than i expected this mascara to look! second coat and the drama does begin to appear, it looks lengthened and septrated still but with much more volume, not a clump in sight! the only thing i didnt like at this point was that it had already made the curl in my lashes drop, but then again this does tend to happen regardless of the mascara that i am wearing!

So i wore this mascara over a 8/9 hour period, during this time i had watery eyes a couple of times, and it was only at the very end of the night did i have one or two flakes a tiny bit of mascara in the corner of my eye from when i cried from laughter!

so i really wanted to dislike this mascara, but really i like it a lot! it lasts a long time, it looks really nice with no clumps and the wand is lovely.

the name may be a gimmick, but the actual product is brilliant!
