Primark Instagirl Collection First Impressions

Hello Beauties,

I was in Primark yesterday and I saw they came out with a new collection called Insta Girl which is centered around Instagram . I love Instagram so just had to get some of the collection.

Primark have done a full collection in this photo everything matches.  This collection is all called it girl which is a gorgeous blushed pink . The lip liner pencil is so smooth and such a bargain at just £1.50. I know the lip liner is slightly more expensive then the original lip liners that primark originally brought out that's probably due to the formula being much better and the packaging is nicer too. The original lip liners were £1 and came in black packaging I think the white packaging is so much nicer for taking Instagram and blog photos .  You can see that the liquid lipstick matches both the lip liner and the nail polish . I love Primark for their liquid lipsticks they can be a bit hit and miss though . This it girl liquid lipstick is such a pretty colour I am hoping it will be more of a hit than a miss . Then there is the it girl nail polish which again is such a pretty shade.

Charlotte Tilbury Film Star Bronze & Glow V'S W7 Hollywood Bronze & Glow Is It A Dupe?

Hello Beauties,

There has been a lot of controversy around dupes this week on twitter regarding the new revolution renaissance lipsticks. You can see them here on the Superdrug website.  Revolution is known for duping the higher end brands . I don't want to go into too much detail if you want to read more I would suggest you go and visit Angela's blog post on beautybythebunny it's really well written and caused a huge debate Cosmopolitan even wrote an article on this which I will leave a link too. Cosmopolitan . The lipsticks are basically identical to the charlotte tilbury lipsticks and that is why there has been so much controversy surrounding this from the rose gold packaging to the ridges on the bullet. You can clearly see where Revolution got their inspiration from when they decided to do this lipstick collection . I see it from both sides when you are an avid collector of make up and you see one of your favourite brands being duped of course it's annoying as beauty bloggers we spend so much money on make up and Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks are not cheap they are £24 each I've only got 6 in my collection because they are so expensive compared to the Revolution Renaissance lipsticks they are £4.  Of course there not going to be Charlotte Tilbury's standard . Most people have a problem with the packaging of how similar it is to the Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks then you speak to others who like to buy dupes and cannot afford to buy high end lipsticks so the Revolution Renaissance lipsticks are at the perfect price point for them and will continue to support Revolution and buy them . I myself have bought a few things from I heart make up that are clearly dupes for the Too Faced eye shadow palettes and the blushers . You can tell that they are trying to dupe the too faced palettes but the packaging is different I can see why this has caused a bit of a debate and is a hot topic at the moment .

Awhile ago I bought the Charlotte Tilbury's Film Star Bronze & Glow Face Sculpt & Highlight it comes in the usual CT gorgeous rose gold packaging and has a nice sized mirror which makes this bronzer and highlight easy to apply on the go. Inside you get equal amounts of Bronzer which is a nice bronzer it reminds me of Benefit Hoola not too muddy and not too orange. The bronzer is really smooth and blends out really well. If you are looking for a bronzer that is pigmented right off then this is not the one for you I am very fair and I have to build it up when I am applying. The highlight in this compact is AMAZING I definitely prefer this over the bronzer it's a gorgeous champagne smooth highlight which makes applying it really easy . I haven't used this in such a long time writing this post is making me want to bring it out of my collection to use it and give you more of an in depth review for next month.

Review On Too Faced Merry Macaroon Christmas In New York Palette

Hello Beauties,

I got this Too Faced Merry Macaroon Eye Shadow Palette for Christmas and did do a first impressions on this palette I think in December/January and said I would do a more indepth review when I had used it more so in this post I will be showing you all the swatches from the lovely palette and giving my overall thoughts from the packaging to each individual eyeshadow.

I love the packaging of this palette it looks really nice on my dresser and it's nice to have the palette handy to use. Because of this I have been using it quite a lot through the last couple of months.

The Too Faced Merry Macaroon Palette is a really nice palette to travel with I know some people may not choose to travel with this palette as it has no mirror it does have some really nice matte and shimmer shadows however so you can create a lot of different looks.

Some of my favourite empties from January

Hello Beauties,

I realised that I did an empties video for you tube on my channel but I didn't talk about what I liked on the blog.

I am only adding a few if you would like to check out all my empties from January you can find it on my you tube channel.

The products that I have decided to talk about today are some of my favourites and thought I would share them with you all.

 The first thing that I would like to talk about is Neutrogena Hydra Boost prior to using this moisturiser. I was using Elf daily Hydration Moisturiser which I ran out of .I saw this Neutrogena hydra boost in my local boots and I thought it looked similar it was a lot cheaper then the Elf and I didn't have to wait  a few weeks for delivery which is always nice. I loved this moisturiser I liked it more then the Elf moisturiser and will certainly buy it again. If you have dehydrated skin I would definitely recommend it.

Milani Conceal & Perfect First Impression/Review

Hello Beauties,

I got this foundation a couple of weeks as I had heard great things about it so I was really looking forward to trying this out and also I was going out for my birthday so I needed a full coverage foundation and I don't normally wear full coverage foundations so I needed to buy one for my collection.  Since this Milani Conceal and Perfect foundation had the most hype I thought this may as well be it. I really liked the idea that it was both foundation and concealer in 1.
