Makeup Gallery by Poundland Liquid Liner

Hey guys

Since mastering the wing liner...sorta...well 9 times out of 10 it goes right on one eye so I'm sticking to my smug makeup applying superiority. Haha. Anyway I digress, since I've started loving a good old cat flick I've been testing out so many liners to find my holy grail product to create wings sharp enough to cut a bitch.

I've tried felt tip ones, good old liquid ones with the brush tip and those gel bad boys that still to this day take sooo many layers to build up (nothing at all to do with my mediocre application skills) and I've finally found one that's just fabulous and the best bit? It's only £1!

Yes that's right...£1!

The Makeup Gallery by poundland liquid liner is the shit. It's opaque, it has a small bush tip so I feel more in control when using it and it does not transfer!!!! At all! Which is fantastic!

I have a bit of a hooded lid situation so there is nothing worse than blending out eyeshadow till I bleed then 30 minutes later my upper eye is rocking a bold black liner curtesy of whatever sub par liner decided it didn't want to be WATERPROOF.

For those who don't feel comfortable using a brush liquid liner, I sometimes use a felt tip liner to create my wing shape then fill it out with the makeup gallery one to get the bold black colour and transfer proof pigment I love.

Overall I'd definitely recommend this liner. It's so affordable that it's not going to break the bank if you find you don't like it but if you end up loving it like me then happy days it's cheaper tha a bag of chips at the chippy nowadays! 

I love this liner so much I even made a video about it're welcome ;)

Have you tried this liner? What do you think? I've just got the grey and brown shades to try so hopefully they're just as good as the black.

Much Love,

March weigh in & feeling fat...

Hey guys,

Weightloss is a funny thing. For those who don't need or want to lose weight you'll never know the mental struggle you have trying to lose weight. Sure we can logically say 'eat less, move more' but that's like saying to a toddler having a tantrum to 'just stop' ever tried that? Yeah doesn't work that well.

positive quote

February was a shit month I'm not going to lie. My PMDD was sheer torture to the point I deactivated twitter and Facebook because I'm a shit excuse for a human being and who likes me anyway? 
Then to top is off the 1st of March saw my stats (blog & YouTube) look uber pathetic as I'm decreasing instead of growing (good for losing weight, crap for growing bubblybex3 lolz) which isn't the be all and end all but feeling like a raging hormonal bitch ready to go all Kung fu panda it kinda sucked. This isn't a cry for compliments by the way.
The icing on top of the shit cake was the fact I only lost 3lb in February!

Hold on!!!! Only? I only lost 3lb! ONLY!! 

Let's take a step back! I lost 3lb. That's 6 cups of sugar that's been removed from my body and I'm sad about that? 

I'll be honest, I wanted to lose 8lb so I'd finally hit an overall loss of 5 stone yet I should still see the success in losing 3lb. I think my disappointment stems from feeling hormonal and the fear that I'm losing my 'mojo' with my diet. I'm scared that as I'm feeling hungrier I'm suddenly going to go back to eating loads and gain it all back with interest.
I'm not but I needed this shake up to retweak my approach, get moving again (I'm so lazy) and acknowledge the fact I'm human. I'll have some bumps in the road but I shouldn't let this define how I deal with it! 

March has been kinda slow in making positive changes but I feel like the fog has lifted to quote tangled and at last I see the light after living in darkness the last few weeks. Erm not trying to be poetic here, I really feel like I've been living in a dark bubble lately but I'm ready to smile again.

Here's to a more upbeat month...

Much Love,

Ps: feeling soooo much better now my hormones have chilled out and I'm ready to kick arse this month (I hope) haha

Coloured Raine single shadow: Superstar

Hey guys,

I wasn't going to write this post as it's only about one shadow but seriously this colour needs to be shared far and wide! I'm talking about the Coloured Raine single pan shadow in Superstar. This is a stunning yellow gold in a foil/metallic finish.

First up the pigment on this shade is impressive! It's bright, it's vibrant and lasted really well. I have hooded lids and it didn't fade even in my wrinkle line thing I have going on on my lid. Phew what a mouthful ;)

For this particular shade and finish I had no fall out or kick up in the pan. Foils tend to be soft so it's not often you'll get these issues anyway but I thought I'd mention it. I bought mine from Beautybay for £6.75 in the sale but the shadows are normally £9 which is honestly a good price for such a quality product.

I created this smoky eye using this shade and I love it so much! I definitely recommend these shadows and if you can get this shade I say DO IT!!!

What do you think? Have you tried Coloured Raine shadows?
