My everyday body moisturiser.

Vaseline esential moisture cocoa radiant body lotion & Vaseline cocoa smoothing body butter! 

I have been using these product for a fair few years now and it has become part of my everyday routine. I love the smell of these products and the way they make your skin look and feel.

For the colder months of the year I tend to use the body butter, as I feel it is more hydrating & lasts better on the skin.

For the warmer months I use the body lotion as it is lighter & absorbs into the skin quickly! 

I really do love these products as they are inexpensive between £4-£9 (depending on where you purchase it) and they leave your skin glowing and feeling beautiful! 

Having said all this I am now looking for a different moisturiser as like I said I have been using this stuff for years and want to see what else is available. 

What would you recommend? 
Please leave your suggestions in the comments and I will try to test them out and do reviews on them in the future :)

Real Techniques Core Collection Review

So the makeup brushes I have been using for the past 2 or 3 months are the Real Techniques Core Collection brushes by makeup artist and youtuber Sam Chapman.

    I have to say I LOVE them, they are honestly the best brushes I have ever owned! Not only do they apply your makeup flawlessly, they are soft to touch, so they don't scratch or irritate your skin, they are all multi usage, despite what the brushes are actually intended for, not to mention super easy to clean and really fast at drying, I just clean mine and place them back into the brush holder, upside down so it allows them to dry without damaging or loosing the shape of the brush.
    I would highly recommend these brushes to anyone that is looking for new ones, or is just starting out wearing makeup, they retail anywhere between £15 to about £25, so that is pretty inexpensive for 4 fabulous makeup brushes & case/stand! 


Revlon - Black Cherry Lipstick Review

Revlon- Black Cherry lipstick

This has been a favorite of mine for a long time now, with it's dark rich colour & full pigmentation, I fell in love with it when I purchased it last fall, it's a perfect colour for fall & winter even though I am still rocking it and we are now going into spring (hmm maybe time to change it up a bit) this is a luxious & moisturising lipstick, it has a great colour as it is very pigmented! It's was perfect for the holiday season as it went with pretty much everything I wanted to wear, and also added a sort of dark mysterious glam to my entire makeup look. 

To really show off the beauty of this lipstick I would make sure the rest of my makeup was simple! Consisting of... flawless skin, a subtle blush, black winged eyeliner, & mascara (or if I was feeling enthusiastic false eyelashes)  

The only downside to this lipstick is that even if you apply a lipliner before, it does tend to wear rather quickly, and transfers easily, but I think that's a small price to pay for a beautiful colour!
