May beauty Favourites

May beauty favourites



Wow, we are a day away from starting a fresh new month and I'm so ready for it. This month has flown by but no surprise there because this year is speeding by. I really want to get back into blogging because I feel so free when I'm sitting at my laptop and writing. So that's what I'm doing. Today I'm going to be discussing my may beauty favourites. I went through a stage with not really enjoying beauty anymore. But over the past month I have found comfort in beauty. By watching videos to buying products. Which I've loved doing. I don't have a lot of favourites but just enough to create a post which I was happy about.

SWEET PEACH

Well hello Peach, Yes I went there, I just had to. This was a palette I have wanted for months but I just couldn't bring myself to buy it because of the price. It would of been a massive buy for me. And I had to think would I use this or would it be another palette at the back of my draw (Trust me there is a few at the back) But I just went for it because why not. So it become apart of my collection and its absolutely breathtakingly beautiful, I'm so glad that I went for it because this is my favourite palette at the moment. The shades are so wearable. Even the brighter colours are which I was worried about at first. because when you spend money on something you want to as much use as you possibly can. I've been loving the pinks because even though there really pigmented I love all the different looks you can create. This had to be in my favourites because I've shown it some serious love this past month. I also keep smelling the gorgeous peach scent.

CHOCOLATE BRONZE AND GLOW


I'm always on a hunt for a new bronzer or highlighter, For some reason I like to collect them. I don't use them all but just in case I want to use a different one or I run out of one. (That  never happens) but I saw this in the section of the I heart makeup range and I loved how it looked. That day it was 3for2 and I picked up quite a bit. Including two palettes I haven't even used yet. But lets get onto the product in question. I just loved the look of it and wanted to try it out. So that's what I did. I don't really expect much of brands like this because but they always turn out to be my favourites. I think brands like this have so much to prove more then higher end ones. When I first tried it I loved it. It goes on so easily. One thing I hate when it comes to bronzers is when it gives you the "muddy" look. I'm a pretty pale girl so getting the right balance is hard to find. But this works so well and I love how it looks. It looks quite dark but it doesn't come of like that. But I guess its how much you put on your brush. I cant wait to see what it look likes when I get a bit of tan. The highlighter is gorgeous. And actually something I don't own. I usually go for really shimmery ones. This one is such a everyday one. It leaves you with a lovely glow and it lasts all day.

HIGHLIGHTING PEACH DIAMOND




Highlighters have always been my thing, I just think there so pretty to look at and to use. I quite a obsession with them. I usually go for the more affordable ones and they definitely don't disappoint. I love the more shimmery ones because I love how it looks This MUA one does definitely do its job. IT''S so pigmented and give the wow look once its applied. It is very shimmery and won't be to everyone's taste. But it is really beautiful and has fast become my favourite to use.

TED BAKER SHEEN





This wouldn't be right if this favourite post didn't include a lipstick. I have to many and keep buying more, But I always end up buying more because I love them. But I think I need to cut out buying nudes because I really don't need anymore. But nudes are my favourite shades to wear. I just think there so gorgeous looking and they suit me so maybe that's why I keep buying them. But in my defence They are all different shades of nude. Sounds weird but they are. Lets get onto this one. I got this one at Christmas and thought it was going to be to light on me but it turns out its perfect and compliment's my skin tone. Its really a muted nude that's nearly lip colour shade. But its just a little darker which gives the prefect shade for me. Its from Ted Baker but I'm not sure you can actually get this all year round because it comes in sets at Christmas time. I've gotten good use to this over the past couple of months.

RIMMEL ROCK N ROLL NUDE


Oh, Another lipstick. Yes this one has to be included. I have always wanted to get a Kate moss lipstick from the brand rimmel. But for some reason I never really got one. But a couple of months ago I was look on the stand and saw this one and new I had to have it. Yes another nude but it actually applies more like a peachy nude. Which is very different for me. I don't really go for tones like that. But It actually grew on me very quickly and it was one of the lipsticks that  I wore constantly. Its a lasting finish with a glossy finish. I'm not one for glossy finishes but I will make a expection for this one. Also can we talk about the packaging. Honestly its gorgeous. Who doesn't love a bit of rose gold in there life.


GARNIER SKINACTIVE


Skincare. I haven't always looked after my skin which is really bad. But it was something I wasn't interested in. Its really actually something I just started doing because I wanted my skin to have some glow and to look all dark and dull looking. When I saw Garnier had released some new skincare I had to have a look at them. And I saw one for Dry and Sensitive skin is which is something I struggle with. Especially the Dry bit. So I thought I would pick these to see if they worked, Well they must of done for them to be in my favourites. I used them night and day and I saw such a difference. My face actually looked fresh and it had some glow to it which made me very happy. Now I can see why skincare is so important and that everyone should use it. I never buy the same skincare over and over again but I am with this one.

Abandonment / mental health /


ABANDONMENT


I haven't wrote a blog post in a couple of months. A lot has gone on and I wish I could say its been good but everything has been very awful. If anything went right for me it would be a miracle. I'm not the most positive person right now which is so weird for me to say, because 2 months back I was the happiest person going. I had everything that I wanted. Fast forward 2 months on and everything has gone and when I mean everything I mean personal things and I will get into it later on. But my gosh my life has gone down hill fast. I wasn't going to write a post. But right now that's the only thing that is distracting me.

I wanted to write about ABANDONMENT. Wow that's personal. I have never used It before because I never wanted to admit it. But yes I was abandoned as a child. I have never gone deeper then that because it doesn't seem that it happened to me. But it did When I was Seven years old a month before my eight birthday. My abusive father walked out on the family and that was the last time I ever saw him. This year its been 17 years. I didn't miss what he did to the family but growing up without a father when you had one for a certain amount of time was hard. Even though life was rough it was our rough and when he left it was a shit show but that's for another post.

I guess why I shared that is because I feel the same I did as a eight year old child as a 24 year old women but this time it wasn't because my father left me. This time my boyfriend left. Wow that feels stupid doesn't it. It's not the same Amy. I know it isn't the same but it feels the same because I loved both very much. Yes a different love but love all the same, two weeks ago it all happened. Well I say two weeks things haven't  been right for nearly two months. You know that feeling of denial. I wouldn't accept it because I knew if I did things would end. I knew I wasn't strong enough for that. I'm looking at this and can't believe what I'm seeing, See I'm not a very open person. Especially with my life and the things that happen. But I new writing about it would help me accept more. Right now I'm not accepting and would take him back in a heartbeat. But that says a lot about me then him. I feel abandoned. They come rushing back, the feelings I never wanted to feel again. And I new by not feeling them again was not falling for someone. But I did, right now I see it as a mistake because of all the feelings. The feelings that's making me feel like I'm not worthy of being loved. I feel isolated and very alone. I'm in a dark place and its scary. I have been hear before and its making me feel like a failure for coming back to a place that I never wanted to, But I guess that's life not everything goes to plan. But that doesn't stop it from hurting so much and that feeling of not being able to breathe. And all the good memories coming back. The hating yourself and how can I forget
"what did I do wrong" I'm not a easy person at all, And he knew that. Most of it comes from MH related problems. But when a person promises everything and to never leave is one the most hardest things to accept and then when you do accept that person is in for the long haul, It turns out he wasn't. He wasn't cut out for a life that we wanted. He changed. I didn't recognise him anymore. Then bam he's gone. The person I loved so much wasn't here anymore. From something so full of promise to complete silence. My world is deathly silent. No light and certainly no smiles, The brokenness I feel is like glass shattering everywhere. But my world is silent. No one to share anything with the good and the bad, The little things that made our relationship has gone. The feeling of being wanted and the thought of our future has gone. Everything has gone and I find myself being so angry and blaming myself to the core. " If I was normal" The thought of the future is so scary. Because what I wanted what we wanted has gone.

I feel I failed, I can see all the things that I could of changed but I didn't. The thoughts the feelings are so powerful, I want my brain to be silent like my world is. Seeing all this written down seems like a story that you would see in a book. But its my life. A life I never thought I would see. I new that trusting a person with something I protect so much would end up in pain. I hate how I'm always right. Right now I hate him so much because he new what it would do to me and how this would all pan out, I guess that's why the ignoring Is happening (Yes I'm in that stage of texting him) because out of sight out of mind. I truly believe he was planning this for a while but couldn't bring himself to do it. But he did, he wanted something more then I could give. Wow this is so raw, the rawness I felt so many years ago. But a child feelings to a adult feelings is very different, But so similar. the little seven year old girl is crying out once again. I find my self sitting there not being able to move or doing everything to distract myself from the feelings. I need to accept but I don't know how to, Its going around and around every minute of the day. Some might find this incredibly stupid. But I don't think it is. This is raw and real life. 

I never want to see him again and I've got rid of everything that was his or what he brought, I couldn't keep anything around me like that. Because it would be a reminder everyday of what he did. This has brought me down like a ton of bricks and I don't know how to put the bricks back together just yet. To some this would just be a breakup and slowly would put themselves back together. But this to me is what I went through many years ago. That took me 14 years to trust someone. So I know I wont  be trusting anyone for a long time because I can't go through this. I new after a while we wouldn't be trusting anyone for a very long time and I blame him for that. If it had ended differently to what it did then I think I could of been ok with that. But how it did is the definition of a coward. But I don't want to go into it.

Wow all my feelings and thought on a screen, of something that has given me a extra chip. What do I do know. I actually don't know but I know I have to go to the doctors to get extra help. And I guess having my life very simple from now on. At least till I heal more from this all. Eventually I hope to be happy again. Even if it feels like I won't ever be again. But that's not for me to see and I pray that my future won't be any more hurt because I think I've gone thought my fair share in my life.

To anyone reading this that is going through the same as me. I'm so sorry and we will get through it. Unfortunately this is a very ugly part of life. Just stay strong.

Three top Spring trends £10 and under.

THREE TOP SPRING TRENDS

SPRING FASHION AFFORDABLE SUMMER TRENDS

Spring has just sprung, Which also means that all the shops have colourful displays which sucks you in for hours at a end. Good job shops, You really no what makes a British person happy. Trends to me signifies a lot of money being spent. I know many people don't have the money to splash out on a whole new wardrobe every season. But there is always a but when it comes to fashion and trends. one word DUPES, If there wasn't a thing that you could get clothes at a fraction of a price of what it is on designer websites I would dress very boring because there is no way I would be able to afford anything. Spring clothing has made me very happy this year because its just me. So girly. The shop I got all these items from isn't going to come as a shock. Its one of my favourite shops to shop in. When it came to Pay day I went in and got some gorgeous pieces, Yes of course I'm talking about PRIMARK

Primark is the most affordable shop around in my opinion for trends at a very affordable price. Who doesn't want some trends in there life at a good price. I really had a good look around and they really have out done themselves this time. Everything is so gorgeous and so so trendy. I wanted to buy the whole shop. But I contained myself. I think when it comes to Primark they do it so well

I picked up three massive trends for £10 and under and I couldn't believe my luck especially one item because I've seen lots of places selling them for much more then I got them for. I would say that the trends for this year are Backless loafers, Bell sleeves floral print and over and over the shoulder handbags. That's all I can see everywhere. Also the colour pink. Which is just incredible. And I think what I like about it is that there is different shades of pink which is amazing for everyone, From nude pink to bright pink. With me I usually tend to stay at light end.


bell sleeves fashion spring primark top trends
BELL SLEEVES TOP £10

This trend is EVERYWHERE. Not even joking when I say that. Every shop you go in you will see a sleeve like this. Primark is full of it. From tops to dresses. This is my second to first favourite and I cant wait till its warm enough to wear it. I think its so flattering and so feminine. But it also gives this top something special, It can either be dressed down or casual which is another reason why I love it.

loafers trend spring fashion primark
LOAFERS £8

Right when I saw this trend I didn't know weather to love it or hate it, But I ended up loving it and wanting them in every colour going. They are just so, so stylish and would make any outfit complete. Perfect and so amazing for spring and summer and I'm going to wear these till I cant anymore. Primark is full of these style shoes right now and with different styles, I don't what it is about them but they seem so timeless and would go with anything. And for that price you cant complain.

PRIMARK SPRING TRENDS FASHION FLORAL OVER THE SHOULDER BAG
FLORAL / OVER THE SHOULDER THE BAG £7

Something I've never really get is new handbags, And I actually don't even know why. I usually just stick to one. But this year I really wanted a smaller bag. And this one caught my eye. It's floral nude/pink  and small. The reason why I wanted a smaller bag is because I stuff rubbish into my bigger bag. So this is perfect. Smaller over the shoulder bags are so in right now and Primark yet again are doing such a good job. 

So that's my Top three spring trends £10 and under. Primark is my favourite and they never let me down.

Were is your favourite place to shop.

Hello, (Life update)




Hello, hi , hey this seems weird. Actually really weird. I haven't sat down to write a blogpost in a long while. I just really didn't want to blog anymore. Reality of it is I was getting caught up in this whole world of numbers and views and all of that. I fell out of love with it and then a couple of weeks ago I was thinking really hard about were I really wanted to take my blog. Use it for some good or carry on posting just for the sake of it. Then I decided that I would take my blog to the next step and become a mental health blogger. I say become like its something new but it really isn't, I've dabbled a few times with posting about mental health and those are the posts that I feel proud of. I want to use my blog for the good and not for the sake of it. It's so easy to carry on posting but if there Is no joy then what's the point. I need to go back to the place where I was a 17 yr old girl that was just going along happily posting when ever. Even if the photos were rubbish and the text was completely ruined by my lack of words or punctuation it was still carefree. I'm always the one that always jumps ahead or wont quit something that's become a habit. But to save my blog I need this change.  

Now on for the update, It's been a crazy month some down but also some good. This year I went into the new year with no goals but then as the month of Jan passed on I seem to have some. I DONT want to stick to goals because its no good for my mental health. So even though they are there I'm trying to not focus so much on it. My mental health over the past month has been a rollercoaster. If you can call it that. I've always been up and down with my mental health but as I grow older the down times seem to stay longer which is quite scary. My low mood has been stable with a couple of blips but its been steady which I'm thankful for. But the one thing that has come back with so much power is Anxiety and Oh my god its come back with a few different symptoms too. It's like a never ending battle and it's so frustrating at how it keeps on popping up. It always seems to be when I try and get some power back in my life and it pops up trying to get me to back down. I've been out of work for a while and this year I wanted to get back into employment and actually stay in a job. I am doing myself proud with that. I've been trying really hard with applying and it's working off because I have quite a few job interviews coming up. Even though I'm getting myself worked up at having a job I know It's a positive step to independence especially as I'm 25 this year. Life is the same with some improvements. Some aspects of mental health seems better but it depends on the day. One thing I'm struggling with is the denial of having mental illness for so long. It seems I've had it a lifetime but really its been 11 long years. I'm always wondering what if's and its so unhelpful but at the time it seems like the best thing to do. I'm currently looking into going back to therapy to help deal with demons and maybe put them to rest.

It's been a crazy but quite start to the year and I really just want to improve but I also no that the smallest of steps are huge achievements I really need to start learning not to beat myself up if something doesn't go as planned. It's hard to sit back and think this is where I am in life and it seems so scary too. But I think the positive step is that I don't want to stay in this position and I want to grow and achieve. Becoming a mental health blogger will help me even more. Topics and updates are were I'm going to start in the beginning I don't want to overwhelm my self. As time goes on I will start bringing new ideas to the table. I'm also going to be doing some posts about my struggles with certain things that have been years longs addictions and many other things. I'm not sure on how often I'm going to post but know there will be a post whenever I can. Especially as I'm looking for work. Getting a job would disrupt it. But for now its all on.

My 5 tips to help Low Mood.

My five tips to help low mood.


SEO CEO MY FIVE TIPS TO HELP LOW MOOD, NOTEBOOKS


Low mood affects so many people and it vile to deal with. I've been a sufferer for many years and not getting much relief from it. Low mood isn't Depression as such. But its part of the family. So it has very similar symptoms. if YOU aren't feeling like you used to please got to your GP and they will carry on from there. Today I wanted to write about my five tips that help me get through day to day. I'm not saying this is for everyone and what might work on me might not work on you. I just wanted to share. It might be helpful to someone.

BALANCED DIET

We all love treats and even more when you're feeling not so good. About a month ago I recognised that my diet wasn't helping my mood. I was eating to much "Junk" and not enough "Healthy" My day would rely around food because that was the only thing that would make me happy. As sad as that sounds Food became my comfort. But eventually it didn't comfort me anymore. My skin was vile my weight plummeted and I was even more tired. I eventually new I couldn't carry on like that and made a choice to eat "good" It's is hard very hard especially as that was your comfort but what you've got to do is swap it with different foods. Have variety and balance and you will see a difference. I've lost some weight, My skin has cleared up and some of the tiredness has disappeared. Don't cut it out entirely because life is too short for that but don't eat it for every meal. It is all about BALANCE    

EXERCISE

I HAVE never been into Exercise from the get go. I don't have much stamina when it comes to that. And to be compeletey honest I'm a lazy person. But with some of my illnesses at times making me not lead a normal day to day life I was finding myself stuck at home. And I was always getting cabin fever. A year ago I brought some funky colured trainers to make me want to get out of the house. I could be dishonest and say that worked but that wouldn't be truthful. Last January to March I did get out everyday to exercise but the old habits came back and I stopped. But I realised I was putting to much pressure on myself. I didn't need to do miles a walk down the road was just fine some days. So I started it again. I won't say I love exercise because that would be taking it to far. But I've put it into my daily routine and its making me feel good. Start of slowly and build up.

SOCIAL MEDIA

I'm just like most people when it comes to social media "Addicted" I'm always on my phone checking everything. But what that led to was a very unhealthy obsession of me comparing everything. Which led me into a very dark place. I've always been aware that my adult life isn't the same as everyone else's but something about seeing everyone's "Perfect" Lives got to me. I got to the point when I had to delete the apps. No one lives are perfect. Not many people would put the bad for everyone to see. I think what me and a lot of people need to remember is no one has it perfect and just because it seems it remember to think out of the box and not focus on the pictures. If you can't do that then delete the apps because I'm telling you it will make you so unhappy. Social media is there to document the best for most people. Don't compare because you don't really know who they are and what there lives entail.

ROUTINE

Routine routine, Something we hated as a kid but need as a adult. Something that I've let slip over the years and that I blame yet again on no motivation. I believe routine structures your day to day life to the best it can be. I'm not saying this has to be for every day. Especially the weekends. But routine is so helpful to people. I decided that I wanted routine back. And I say this in complete truth, I don't have much to be in routine for. But if we thought like this then the world wouldn't work. I set myself little goals every day to help achieve some routine. They included. Going to bed and waking up the same time everyday, Making the bed opening blinds, Washing and dressing and it goes from there. If I have that in place then I'm usually set up for the day and keep motivated. People with low mood will struggle with day to day things and that includes me. So if you don't achieve that one day it isn't a big deal

KINDNESS

When I say kindness I don't mean being kind to others (That's always nice though) I mean kindness to yourself, Your body and mind fights everyday. Don't be so hard on yourself when something doesn't go the way you want It too. Say nice things to yourself. Accept compliments don't brush them away. People say them for a reason. Be proud of who you are because the strength in you is way more then you can imagine. Treat yourself to things that you love, Delve into a book that you've wanted to read for ages. Have that lush bath. Just do something that is kind to you and your body.



This isn't really another tip but TOXIC people won't help your life. It dones't seem that they do much damaged but I'm telling you now they do more damage then you can see. I will leave that there for now because I'm going to do another post entirely on it.

Freedom / Pro Strobing kit

FREEDOM / PRO STROBING KIT.

seo ceo Freedom pro strobing kit

Who doesn't love doing the whole face when they have time, Contouring highlighting have been something I have been loving. But finding products that are affordable but good quality is hard to come by. Especially if you're pale and not wanting that whole muddy look. QUITE  a lot of contouring products I have used have given me that look. Which is always so frustrating because it's so hard to blend in properly. So I've been on the look out. Well I have been on the look out for another palette just because I like to have more then one to use. The palette I'm going to be talking about today is one I've had around three months. Did I like it or was it another muddy experience for me.. LETS find out.

SEO CEO FREEDOM PALETTE CLOSE UP

I've been using the palette for over 3 motnhs now and I can say that I really like it. It doesn't leave me muddy looking. It has 3 different shades to countour with. Which Is really helpful. I love the lighter shade because I don't like heavy contour on day to day basis. This does its job and blends really well. I have been using the highlight. I don't use this every day but I do love the glow it leaves. It is very in your face. I do love that sometimes but like I said not on a everyday basis. 

SCO SEO CONTOUR BRUSH  FREEDOM

Another reason why I really love the set is because it comes with a contour brush. These brushes are amazing because they really get into the hollow of the cheek to create the perfect contour line. I've used normal brushes in the past but nothing compares to this. This has been used everyday since I got it. It also helps with the blending. for a palette and a contour brush this comes up to £10. Which is a incredible price and so affordable to many. It isn't just affordable its a really good product and does the job your after. I would definitely recommend this to all. From starting out with makeup to long time makeup users.

My best of beauty 2016

BEST OF BEAUTY 2016

SEO CEO BEST OF BEAUTY 2016

Beauty is such a love of mine and every year I find new products I love. Well of course it wouldn't be right if I didn't have anything new that I loved. I say beauty I mean mostly makeup. I love finding new brands and more bits to lust over. This year was more Drugstore run, but I do have couple bits of high end. Of course I love more luxury products just as much as drugstore but I can't really afford to buy the high end a lot. So many items that have blown my mind. Everything I have used. But there is a couple of items that I have recently brought. But it doesn't matter if I've used it once or hundred times. If I like something I like something. 2016 was a good beauty year. Lets get onto what my favourites have been.

Tarte/ Rainforest of the sea foundation.

SEO CEO TARTE WATER BASED FOUNDATION
This is one of my first high end foundations, To me high end foundations never really have a bad review. I was worried that I would get a expensive foundations and would hate it. And that would of been a waste of money. So it was 50/50 really and I was hoping that it would be the better side. I can officially say after writing a full blog post and given it a good old go. I'm obsessed with it. Personally I love a good coverage foundation. This has out blown all my other foundation. It's amazing for dry skin because it so moisturising and it leaves you with a dewy finish. which I love. It is a water based foundation which I have never tried before. With that I don't see a difference from other foundations but that could just be me. Everything else is flawless. My second high end foundation was a success which I'm so glad about. I would definitely recommend this to other beauty lovers and to people who have just got into makeup. Tarte is very hard to get in the UK but if you fancy a browse at some of there range check out QVC. It's a English telly shopping channel that has a website and they stock Tarte as well as some other amazing high end ranges.

TARTE // Amazonian clay eyeshadow palette.

SEO CEO TARTE AMAZONIAN CLAY EYESHADOW PALETTE

Eyeshadow palettes are my obsession and I ALWAYS fall in Love with very similar ones. I just love my neutral colours. With having so many the same. I thought that I wouldn't get the use out of this one just as many other ones I have. But This is my second most used palette of the year. I say year I mean November to now. I got this as a earlier Christmas present.. But I've been using this since. Not all the time but most of the time because I couldn't ever use just one. I This is very pigmented but I wouldn't expect any less. Because high end isn't cheap. I haven't used the blush because I'm not really a blush kind of girl. But the eyeshadows are amazing. Some shimmer and some matte. Which is very handy because this can be used to a day to a night and is so compactable. I'm hoping this don't go to the back of my draw. I also love the packaging. Who doesn't love cute packaging. I'm probably way to obsessed with how it looks then I should be. But there we go. Overall I'm in love and it's definitely a palette you need in you're life.

MAYBELLINE // blushed nude palette.

SEO CEO MAYBELLINE BLUSHED PALETTE
  Yes another palette. This was given to me last Christmas and I've loved it ever since. It's has all the shades I love. But some of them I haven't been to brave to try out. For some reason dark colours are something I usually muck up. I end up looking like a cast member of Adams family then someone with a sultry smokey eye. That's my problem. Anyways I have really enjoyed the shades I have been using. The colours are really pigmented and very long lasting which is always a plus. It is a shimmer based palette. So if you don't like shimmer stay clear. A palette that I'm glad I own. It's always my go to palette. You can get this in any Drug store franchise and Supermarkets.

TOM FORD// Lipstick

SEO CEO TOM FORD LIPSTICK
 Along side palettes. Lipsticks are my next favourite makeup item. I'm always wanting a new lippy. But I never thought I would own a Tom Ford lipstick and I feel so privileged to own it. This is so luxurious and just beautiful. I've been giving this a good go but also not wanting to use it. I don't really have to do a lot of explaining with this one. You can't hate a Tom Ford product its beautiful and a very loved beauty item in my collection.

Ted Baker (Lipstick)

SEO CEO TED BAKER LIPSTICK
  
I haven't tried a lot of Ted baker makeup. I got this from Boots. Seeing the colour I new I had to have it as well as the gorgeous packaging. I love Berry/Nude shades all year round. It's so moisturising and insanely pigmented. It applies really well and as a really strong lasting power to it. Which surprised me the most because of how moisturising it was I thought it would slip off. I've had meals and its still going strong. This is one of my favourite lipsticks at the moment because of how amazing it is. I'm looking to try more products of Ted Bakers because of how amazing this was.

Lush / Lip Scrub

SEO CEO LUSH SUGAR PLUM FAIRY LIP SCRUB

I have never tried a Lip scrub till this and I don't know what I was playing at. I just thought it was another product they bring out that really doesn't have any purpose. But I was so wrong. I received this in a lush goody bag when I attended one of there events which was amazing. With so many lipsticks I use that are so drying this is a life saver. It makes my lips so soft and nourished. What I also love about this is that you don't have to keep buying it. I've had this for over a couple of months and I haven't even made a dent in it. A very good product that actually does something for the lips. And I would even go and say that its one of my most used products. It even tastes good.

Zoella / Hungry Hands lotion.

SEO CEO ZOELLA HUNGRY HANDS CREAM

As a blogger I love to support other creators and Youtubers. I love Tanya's and Zoella's collections especially there Christmas Range. This year I picked this up from Zoella's range. Another thing I wasn't overly keen on before this was hand cream. I hate anything that's sticky and won't sink into your skin properly. I love gingerbread So I knew I was going to like the scent of it. But what I really wanted to know if I would like the product itself. When I first tried I really knew I was going to like it. It feels so light on the hands. Not sticky and rubs in well. It really moisturizers my hands well and smells incredible. This is a hand cream that I love and I hate that I won't be able to get this again. Hopefully she Brings something similar out this Christmas.

Kate moss // Rimmel collection.

SEO CEO KATE MOSS FOR RIMMEL COMPACT BLUSHER CONTOUR HIGHLIGHT

I have wanted this for ages. But have never got around to buying it. One for the packaging and two because its so compact and looks amazing. This got into my best of beauty because of the contour. I love it so much. It's so subtle and light. Not muddy looks and applies well which is always good. This is unlike any other contour product I've used and I've really enjoyed using it. This is my go to product. I don't use the blush but have also been using the highlighter which is also good.

That's been my Best of Beauty 2016! What's been yours
