Maxfactor lipstick review


Today I shall be writing a review on Maxfactor Colour Elixir

The shade which I am using at the moment is '830 dusky rose'  I am in love with this lipstick it is my go to lipstick at the moment. It's a lovely everyday shade, not too bright and the pink suits light skin tones. As said before I have very fair skin.

The Maxfactor Colour Elixir lipstick is very pigmented and it's not too bright as mentioned before and it only costs £7.99 which I think is very affordable for a good quality lipstick which does stay on for a long time... Not all day but does last long. I do find myself having to reapply this throughout the day.

I think after trying this lipstick i shall be venturing out on other shades as i find these lipsticks moisturising and they don't dry my lips out at all.

I would love to know what your favourite everyday go to lipstick is...

Dainty Doll Review


Here again twice in one day :)

I thought to start off with i would do a quick review. The review which i will be doing is Dainty Doll Blusher.

Dainty Doll is a collection which is designed by the Girls Aloud singer Nicola Roberts. The collection is designed to enhance the beauty of fairer skin tones. I have very fair skin even the lightest foundations are sometimes too dark for me so i thought this collection would be perfect for me.

My Girl
The blusher comes in this lovely cute packaging. The shade which i chose to try was '002 My Girl'. I love the cardboard packaging but i do feel that the actual blush packaging is a bit boring. Overall looks good and is easy to get into.

I like how this blusher is aimed at people with fairer skin as i sometime find other blushes are very harsh and too 'in your face' on my skin.

I found that this blusher is such a lovely colour and is still very pigmented but not too bright. The blush is a powder and is very easy to get a good look. You don't need too much to gain a good colour in your cheeks.

I'm not sure on the pricing because I found this collection in TKMaxx so I believe that the price was at a discount rate. It was a whole ago i bought it but I think I paid around £2.00 and for that I believe that this is well worth it.

I have had this blusher for around 3 months now and it is still my favourite blusher today. I think I will invest in other shades.

One thing that I have found with this blusher is that it does tend to wear off and loose its colour on your cheeks after a while and I do sometimes find myself having to re-apply this throughout the day. But I can handle that.

Thanks for reading :)

I'd love to know what your favourite blusher is.

About me


This is my first ever Blog post. I have been reading Blogs for a long time now and never really built up the courage to write my own Blogs... until today for some unknown reason.

This first post is just to tell you a little about me and my life and then we shall go from there.

I am currently studying for my A'levels close to the end though (finally!). I am studying geography which i don't know why to be honest, i wouldn't be able to point many countries out on a map though. My other subjects are I.T and Sociology.

While studying i have a part time job which i love and enjoy going to work all the time. Its very rewarding and challenging. I only work part so around 8-10 hours a week.

At this stage in my life i have applied to go to university to study Primary Education and received my offers. Last month i had to make the most difficult and important decision in my life... Which was my top university. All i need to do now is work my ass off and get the results (fingers crossed there) and pass the Maths and English skills test :/

Anyway, back to why i am writing this in the first place. I thought it would be a great experience to meet new people. My Blog post will mainly be cosmetic review and possibly lifestyle i think we shall see how things go from here.

If you have any questions about my life, university, A'levels. Or you just want to chat feel free... I'm always up for a chat :)
