Hello everyone,

So its been a few days since my last blog post and I thought I would come back with a quick makeup review.

I have never really used many Stila makeup products except for the Slay All Day Liquid Eyeliner which is my favourite eyeliner ever. I have seen that the Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter and Glow Liquid eyeshadow has quite a reputation in the beauty blogging world, so on that note I thought I would give it a go.

First thing is first, the prices and shades.

The Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter and Glow Liquid eyeshadow is priced at £23.00 and you can purchase Stila products off a range of websites including Asos. I got the shade Kitten Karma, which is a gorgeous rose gold shade. Having never tried this product before when I swatched this product I was shocked! The pigmentation was absolutely insane! It has some incredible staying power and doesn’t wipe off easily! I love the shade so much and I can’t wait to get using this, I may even buy another shade too!

The Stila Slay All Day Liquid Eyeliner is possibly my favourite eyeliner EVER. This liner is priced at an amazing £14.50. I got the shade Intense black, which also has an amazing pigment and stays on all day! You can grab this liner from a range of places including Asos. This liner is also waterproof and doesn’t come off no matter the weather! If you want an eyeliner that is super easy to use and create the most flawless cat eye then this is your liner!

The Red Puffa Jacket…

Hello,

Hope you are all well. Im sorry I haven’t posted in a few days and honestly I just needed a break from social media and things for a while.

At lot has happened recently in my life some good and some bad.

But one of the things that I have absolutely been loving recently is my brand new red puffa jacket from New Look!

Screen Shot 2017-11-19 at 19.01.49I have wanted one of thee classic coats for a little while now, and now they’ve come back into fashion. Which is amazing for me because it gives me an excuse to buy new clothing! I also managed to get this coat in the sale and paid £33 for it!

This coat is possibly the warmest coat I’ve ever owned and I DO NOT regret buying this one bit!! Ive been wearing it everyday since I bought it, which kinda just shows how much I like it! Its so cosy and the hood acts like a pillow meaning you could just doze off pretty much anywhere, how fab is that?!?

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray – Review

Here comes yet another beauty review here on my blog!

Today I am reviewing one of my favourite beauty products at the moment.. the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. This setting spray has recently made its way into my makeup collection and I couldn’t be happier.

Screen Shot 2017-11-11 at 12.23.06

I purchased this product from Debenham’s store for £23.50 (118ml), which I think is such a good price for the quality of the product! This product feels weightless on your face but is such  a vital product in my makeup routine. The spray helps your makeup stay on all day and all night (up to 16 hours) without melting or fading or smudging. I have quite dry and sensitive skin and this works amazing on my skin. I also have heard from other bloggers and friends of mine that it works on all skin types which is amazing!?!

This product is well known in the blogging community and gets talked about quite a bit, so you’ve probably heard all of this before. I did however realise that when I used this on my halloween makeup looks it still stayed on for ages! Which I think is amazing as a lot of the products I used weren’t the best quality and also not all classic makeup which this is typically used for.

I have heard that the NYX setting spray is also a good drugstore dupe for this UD spray. I may try this and compare the two, if this is something you’d be interested in let me know in the comments below!

Hope you are all having the most fantastic day!

Xlash Product Review

Who doesn’t love long thick lashes!? I know I do! I can’t name a single person that I know who doesn’t want longer lashes!

XLash have kindly sent me some of their products to try out. I thought I would review the products on here as well as my YouTube Channel – Lucy Snewin.

First off the company were a pleasure to work with and were very kind to reach out to me and send me these products. I received the mascara and eyelash serum by Xlash. I love both of these products and have incorporated them into my daily routine for the past month.

Eyelash serum:

The eyelash serum works a dream and is such a good product! It is a sensitive product and didnt cause any irritation in my eyes or skin. This product made my lashes look more fibourous and thicker within the 30 day use and it has become a part of my daily night time routine. This product has really helped treat my lashes and made them fuller and longer which I love!!
Xlash Mascara:

The mascara I was sent has possibly turned into my new favourite mascara. This mascara is enriched with vitamin E and B5 which helps with regrowth of lashes making them longer and fuller. This mascara makes my lashes look so full with just one stroke. The wand is shaped in a curved angle to help with application and also helps ensure every lash gets an even coat!

I have enjoyed working with Xlash cosmetics and will continue to use these products!

My Running Journey…

So a few of my close friends and family may be aware that I am going to be running Brighton’s Half Marathon in February with two of my close friends and considering all things aside, Im not that great of a runner which is what I am trying to work on. I feel like my whole life I have come up with excuses like, “ah my asthma is playing up” or “no, its raining” just to get out of running. But the thing is, once I am out running I love it. It is such a stress relief for me and I really enjoy running (once I start!). I use the app Strava to record al of my runs and this helps me keep on track with my time/distance.

Ive found that If I go running or exercise on a regular basis my mental health is a lot better and I can control it more. When I run I feel a sense of achievement and Im happy about it, by having the goal of this half marathon it gives me something to work towards.

I thought I would start a mini series of how my running journey us going leading up to the half marathon. Let me know if this is something you would like to see on my blog and comment down below anything around fitness/health you would be interested in.

So to start with Im going to say how this week has been for me fitness and running wise. Ive managed to fit in 2 runs this week a 5K and a 6.5K as well as a few Blogilate’s youtube workout videos (which are amazing btw!). Ive been eating healthy on and off this week and that is something I want to work on in the next week and I can let you know how that goes.

Its difficult to fit running in and around 12.5 hour shift placements, and this week coming I think I may struggle… So if you have a

ny motivational thoughts please let me know below and help a gal out!

Also my friend Han is an amazing running and has some amazing inspiration and has a blog too, which you should totally go check it out! – Life with Han. She also has a Youtube channel too!
