October faves:Beauty & Random

Hi everyone!!

Time for October Faves. I posted a YouTube video where I talk a lot about what I like about these products, but I also thought I’d share a blog post, cause well, I haven’t written one in forever.

So, what did I love in October?

Beauty

The lips

No7 Lippie
There is a problem here. I cannot tell you the name of the colour because I am colourblind and cannot read black on reddish backgrounds. I am including a photo though and you do see it in my video. I love this lippie because it is quite long lasting and moisturising. It is not patchy, quite affordable (10 pounds) and autumnal. The colour I have is a reddish brown.

Mua lip lacquers
They have been around forever. They are very affordable (3 quid!). The shades I have are not patchy. My faves are Poise and Tranquility which are both nude tones (video with a full review is coming next on my channel-shameless plug).

The eyes

I have two stylos I like. Kiko 06 (which is a shimery bronze/ brown I think) and Elf no budge stylo in Moca. That is a rich brown. They are both long lasting and very easy to apply. If you are partially- sighted like me and only use eye stylos, you defo need to check these out cause they are very affordable.

The perfume

Clinique aromatics in white. If you like powdery scents, you should check this out. Some of my other Faves are Chanel Mademoiselle, Escada Notes and Jo Malone blush suede (trying to give you a sense of the perfumes of what I love).

The Blush

I am currently using using Rimmel maxi Blush in wild card. It is a red-y blush. If you go in heavy handed, you are……. But if you tap off excess and blend it a bit, it is nice.
Capture

The foundation

There has been a lot of talk about the Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define foundation. I personally really like it. It is medium coverage. The application is very easy, it is quite long lasting, easy to spread. It does not show my lines or sink into them. I do moisturise well though underneath it. It is what I am wearing in my video (and pic. Actually, I am wearing a lot of these products in my video).

Random faves

Oh! Do I have a selection of random goodies for you. Swizzel lollies. I am addicted and I should not be!!!!! So yummy…. and bad. Another random? I bought a re usable shopping bag from Primark (did a massive haul from Primark if you wanna check it out). It has polka dots and the lots. So nice and practical (and one quid!).

So there you have it. What were your faves? let me know in the comments below. Do check out my YouTube channel. I ain’t that bad….
Thanks for stopping by.

Una Brennan daily moisturiser (radiant). It smells so nice!! ๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒนOh! It does a good job as well!!

Five Friday Faves

Hi lovelies,

It is Friday (it was when I started writing this) and it is time for my 5 Friday Faves Youtube Video (and a promotional blog post which aims to get you to watch my video and maybe even subscribe to my channel coz I am trying to grow and no one really subs ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ). So, enough with the rambling. What are my faves?

๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป

Body shop

My Moringa hand cream is so hydrating, lightweight and smells amazing. I ๐Ÿ˜ it.

The card factory

I love polka dots. I love pink. I love organisation. I bought a box which is sterdy and very pretty.

Marks and Sparks

The scent of ๐ŸŒน ๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน and it is my favourite. I bought the Rose 3 in 1 spray. You can use it on your body, for your room, and linen. I know that sound weird, but I like it and I ๐Ÿ’— the scent.

Primark

I bought a couple of fake flowers from Primark and my friend commented saying how nice they looked. I really like them. Great decor for shelves and stuff.

My Cane

This is a weird one, but I needed a warning cane. I now have one, and my life is much easier!Having a vision impairment is hard. Accepting that you need help is hard. Getting help is great though.

If you want to hear more about my faves, check out my channel. It would be great if you subscribed as well (#beggingforsubbies).

Anyhow, have a lovely weekend. See you in my next post and don’t forget to connect with me somehow, somewhere.

Five Faves:beauty and random

This post contains affiliate links

So initially I shared this video on Friday and I called it five Friday faves. Catchy title, right? I never got round to writing a blog post though, so here I am on a Sunday at 8 p.m. blogging.

Thumb

Back story

I โค favourites (videos), but I always forget to film one or have too many faves. That is why I started filming my Friday faves. They haven’t really become very popular (then again none of my videos have :P), but I do enjoy chatting about faves and I will do so here as well.

OK enough with the rambling dude……

What do I talk about

A book

Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine.

I have not finished reading this book but it is so much fun. It is about a lonely, kinda awkward gal who shares her stories. You should check it out. According to Reese Witherspoon (www.amazon.com)

โ€œBeautifully written and incredibly funny,ย Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fineย is about the importance of friendship and human connection. I fell in love with Eleanor, an eccentric and regimented loner whose life beautifully unfolds after a chance encounter with a stranger; I think you will fall in love, too!โ€ย โ€”Reese Witherspoon

Chubby Sticks

Of course I am going to go on about the Clinique Chubby Sticks. I love them. If you are partially sighted, like me, or a newbie makeup gal, you should check them out.

I have the lilac, brown, pink and beige/gold. They retail for about 17 pounds. I have had them forever. Nice creamy and they do not crease. Strongly recommend lovelies!!!See below the full colour range.

Nuxe Multi purpose dry oil

Lovely oil which I use on my hair and …… (wait for it) elbows. It smells very lightly and is not oily… for an oil. It leaves my hair feeling nice and soft. I only use a little bit on the ends. It does not leave my hair greasy. I really think this product is underrated. It has also helped my elbows soften a bit. A little bit goes a long way.

Sephora Beautifying Mist

Spritz spritz and you wake up without wrecking your makeup. Is that enough?

Lush Sleepy body lotion

It is supposed to help you sleep. I cannot comment on that. It does smell nice though and does seem to help me relax.

OK now if you want more details on these products and are bored (wanting to watch something), then check out my video!!!

3 Thoughts Tuesday

Hi everyone,

How are you? I hope you are having a lovely week. In today’s post I am going to share a new YouTube video idea I had. It is called 3 Tuesday Thoughts and I review 3 well known products and tell you what I think about them.

๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป3 Products ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป

In today’s video I talk about Estee Lauder Doublewear which is my Go To foundation if I want a budge proof foundation and a porcelaine skin effect. I ๐Ÿ˜ this foundation and in the video I show you how I apply it (sponge vs. brush) and what I think works.

I talk about the Stilla liquid eyeshadow in Grace. Are they worth the hype? Yes! They are opaque and stay on for a long time. I ๐Ÿ˜ it (more details in the video -toot toot).

I finally talk about lip oils and my favourite Clarins one. It is the Instant light lip comfort Oil. The colour I have is a kinda orange. I tell you why I like it and swatch it.

If you are interested in these products, click on the video and check out for yourself. Let me know how thesebeauty products work for you. If you are looking for a new channel to watch, check out mine.

Five Friday Faves

Hi!!

I thought I’d share with you another Five Friday Faves post video. What is Five Friday Faves? Well, I talk about Five random things I have been loving. I talk about makeup, skincare, books, clothes and more.

So, let’s start.

1. Oasis

I love shopping from Oasis and I picked up two things during the sales; a bag and a top.

The bag has leather details, stripes, and a big bow. It has some pockets inside. It is a “chuck in everything bag”. I use mine to go shopping and stuff like that.

I also bought a lilac top. It is very lightweight material. The cute thing about it are the sleeves. They look like they are lace. So pretty.

2. Kefir Quark

I am a mac n’cheese kinda girl cause well it is quite hard to sustain this bod ๐Ÿ˜œ. From time to time though, I slip off the unhealthy bandwagon and try something healthier. I bought my first (and not last) Kefir quark. I got it because I was looking for something good for my stomache (it is ideal if you are on antibiotics). I got the chia and raspberry flavour. It tastes a bit like a sour Greek yoghurt. It is thick and a bit sour. The seeds make it taste a bit yummier. I also add weetabix to mine and it makes a yummy filling brecki.

3. Olay Serum

So, full name is Olay anti-wrinkle 2 in 1 firm and lift booster and serum. It comes with a pump. It is a serum you can use before your moisturiser or under your makeup. It does plumpen up your skin. It is for women 40+. It does not break me out or sting. I usually wear it at night and in the morning my skin feels nice and soft.

4. Summer at Rose Island (by Holly Martin)

Time for some chick lit. Girl meets boy in a British UK seaside resort. There is a lighthouse. It has all that are essential for a big love story. I like it because it is funny and fast paced. A page turner coz it is fun.

5. Clinique Chubby Stick in

I have mentioned my chubby sticks over and over. They are so easy to use. I am partially sighted (I cannot see) , so it is very easy to mess up my eye makeup. These eyeshadow sticks are very easy to control. The pigmentation is quite good. The application is super easy. It spreads evenly and does not really crease (unless you colour your lids in too much and then, yes, after a while, it may crease). I have a couple of shades, but the one I reach for most often is Fuller Fudge.

So, you can now watch my video where I talk about these faves in more detail (maybe even subscribe to my channel?? ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜).

Have you tried any of these products? What are your Friday faves? Let me know in the comments below. Don’t forget to “follow” my blog (or Youtube channel), so that you never miss out on my super duper rambles.

Thanks for stopping by.
