Colourpop Echo Park Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick

6 comments

Recently I made my first Colourpop order after years of lusting over so many gorgeous products, I finally got round to ordering some for myself! The first thing I new I needed to try was the Ultra Satin Liquid Lipsticks, so I made sure I picked up a few - you can read my haul post here. I had high hopes for the satin liquid lippies as satin is my go to formula, thanks to the gorgeous semi matte finish but soft creamy formula - usually! Ever since picking up my first Colourpop goodies I've been wearing Echo Park, non stop!

Colourpop's Echo Park Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick is a warm peachy nude,  I feel like it really is one of those shades that's great for all occasions and all year round. The peachy tone makes it a lovely Spring/Summer shade whilst the warm nude touch to it gets me all excited to wear it this Autumn, I love a warm nude to brighten up your look in the Autumn time. It's nude enough to be able to wear it in the day time but also has that pop of warm peach that makes it gorgeous for an evening look too.
The formula is just incredible. The applicator is just so soft and feels so lovely on the lips and the formula instantly feels creamy but so pigmented! After a couple of minutes the satin formula drys a little, leaving you with a velvety soft finish that looks like matte but it's so much more comfortable. This feels so lovely on the lips and not at all drying in the slightest, that's why I normally go for a satin lip! The staying power is sooooo impressive! The first day I wore this I applied it at 8AM, after talking all day, eating and even brushing my teeth (#invisalignlife), the liquid lipstick still looked gorgeous at 5PM and I'm not telling porkies I swear! I honestly can't fault the look, the finish and the feel of this product. I had high expectations and they were exceeded! I think the only slightly negative thing I could say about this was the fact the cute Colourpop logo has rubbed of since having this lippy in my bag for a few weeks!
Colourpop Echo Park AFTER I had eat far too many burgers and hot dogs!

I'm completely obsessed with Colourpop's Echo Park Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick and I'm dying to try more, I did pick a couple of others that I need to try out, but I've been so drawn to Echo Park! I can't believe the value and the quality, I can honestly say that this Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick is the best (and most affordable!) liquid lipstick I have ever tried, I can't fault it! I can't believe they are just $6.50 (around £4.50!). The gorgeous soft satin finish and the high pigmentation makes the custom charges oh so worth it!

What's your favourite Colourpop Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick beauties?

DIY Lash & Brow Tinting with Colorsport

7 comments

I've always thought about going to get my eyebrows and lashes done but never really got round to it. I've always been a bit scared that it would go wrong and I wouldn't like it. The thought of spending a lot of money to maybe end up looking like something from a horror film, was something I just was not really prepared to do. The pressure to have perfect brows and lashes is all too real these days, we spend too much extra time perfecting our brows in the morning - I'd rather have ten more minutes in bed! So when Colorsport got in contact asking me to try out their 30 Day Mascara Dye30 Day Brow Tint Kits, I was on board!

 Before                                                                                                                                                  After
As I said I have never got my brows done before I've been too scared I would hate them, but I also would love to shave of some of my precious time in the mornings from my makeup routine. Colorsport's 30 Day Brow Tint promises minimum effort and maximum impact! Of course the thought of having to dye my own brows was a bit nerve racking, I've never done this before - but I was so eager to not have to worry about filling them in every single morning, I couldn't wait to give it a go. I followed the instructions and re watched the tutorials over and over again on the website. The application was very quick and easy. All you need to do is mix up the formula and brush it through your brows with the applicator and wait 2 minutes to wash it off - so simple! My brows are near enough black, so to be honest with you I wasn't sure if the Dark Brown dye was really going to effect my brows at all. Once I removed the dye, I was so thankful the dye wasn't completely over board and bold! My brows looked natural but neater and more defined. The dye has filled in my brows, they no longer have an ashy grey shade to them, they look refreshed and ready to go! The dye didn't make a dramatic change to my brows because they were very dark anyway, but I do feel comfortable enough to go out without filling them in now! Once I had put my makeup on, I looked at my brows and for once, I felt like they just didn't need to be filled in. The dye lasts for around 30 days and the kit costs just £6 from Boots at the moment (normally £8.25). You get enough for up to 16 applications, which makes this mind-blowing value for money! £6 for over a year of perfect brows!
Of course I tried the Colorsport 30 Day Lash Tint in Black a the same time. Again the application was very quick and easy. I watched the tutorial on the website and began the process myself. For this one all you do is apply the solution with a cotton bud onto the lashes and wait for 1 minute, then brush on the colour gel with the brush provided and leave on for a minute, then wash off. The whole process takes around 5 minutes! I love bold dark lashes and I spend so much time applying mascara in the morning to my non existent lashes, I was very excited about this product. Once the process was finished, my lashes looked immediately darker and more defined. I feel so much more comfortable now wearing no makeup, I feel like my lashes still look pretty even without mascara. The dye has really helped frame my eyes and and also make my eyes look a lot brighter and healthier as my lashes are now darker. The dye lasts until your lashes fall out and are replaced by new ones. So again this is incredible value for money, just £6 (normally £8.25) from Boots for around 12 applications! I still love to apply mascara when I go out, because I just love longer and fuller lashes, but this dye has definitely improved the appearance of my lashes and eyes when I'm not wearing makeup. Every girl wants to feel beautiful without applying makeup don't they?

I'm so happy I no longer feel the need to fill in my brows every single morning, they look defined and ready to go. I also feel so much more confident with my natural lashes. You can pick up the Colorsport Lash & Brow kits from Boots for just £6 until the 10th of April (£8.25 normally).

My Cosy Home Day Essentials

6 comments

There's not a lot of things in life where I could proudly blow my own trumpet and say, yeah - I'm awesome at that! But the one thing I know I do right is a cosy home day! Life can be so busy and fast pased these days, it can be hard to find time to wind down and relax. It's so important to make the time to chill out and just have a cosy home day. I'm going to share with you my essentials for the perfect cosy home day.

The scene
You need to start of by setting the most relaxing and cosy scene. For me this usually involves my bed or the sofa with the cosiest blanket and my pyjamas/dressing gown. Simon and I both have a cream soft blanket from Tesco. I think they were only £10 each and they're so huge and so soft, they've even stayed super snuggly after being washed a zillion times. I love to have clean and tidy surroundings, otherwise I just can't relax. There's nothing better than chilling out in a nice and tidy house. I like to have everything smelling delicious and this normally involves burning a couple of candles. At the moment I'm trying to bring Spring in to my home so I've been burning my Yankee Candle in Pink Dragon Fruit, it's a lovely sweet fruity scent. In the colder months I love Bath & Body Works Leaves & The White Company's Winter candle. The new little essential that has made it's way into my cosy scene are my two adorable little kittens. Currently right now they are snuggled up on my arm whilst typing. They refuse to let me have five minutes without them, especially if I'm in my pyjamas with a fluffy blanket they can get all cosy in! As much as they can be annoying and get in the way, I just can't get enough of them and absolutely love that they feel like they have to be on me 24/7. They're cute, warm and fluffy - I think everyone needs a couple of kittens to make their cosy home day!

The chill time
So you're in your best pyjamas and have your favourite candles burning, now what do I do I hear you asking. Whatever you want to do! My favourite thing to do when I don't want to do anything productive is watch a boxset or a film! At the moment every spare moment I get I'm watching The Sex & The City boxset. I've watched it at least 3 or four times but I just think it's such a good binge worthy boxset I always go back to it. Another great cosy home day boxset is Gilmore Girls - I like to save this for Autumn time though! I've been trying to read more lately as I love just having a couple of hours getting lost in some love story or made up world. I've just finished reading Louise Pentland's Wild Like Me and it's such a cosy little read, you can definitely see Louise's sense of humour in this book! Of course I have a Harry Potter book on the go at the moment too, so I cannot wait to get back into the magical world of Hogwarts! Another amazing way to relax and unwind is of course taking the time to have a self indulgent bubble bath. I'm talking candles, all the LUSH products and maybe even getting the razor out! Again once I spend time relaxing I love to be watching a good boxset or catching up with my favourite YouTubers and TV shows. I love to bring the iPad in to watch vlogs in the bath!

The food
Every cosy home day must involve some of your favourite naughty little treats! I like to start a cosy home day with a my favourite go to breakfast - a bacon baguette! Most days I don't normally have time to make a delicious cooked breakfast (thank good because I'm sure that wouldn't be good for my waste line!). So usually on a Sunday I like to get a fresh baguette and have a delicious bacon baguette with ketchup and a coffee whilst again, I watch YouTube! Usually Simon & like to watch Louise Pentland's weekly vlogs on a Sunday morning with a bacon sarnie! Now as much as I would love to, you shouldn't really just eat a ton of crap all day long so I like to think I'm being super healthy by having a jacket potato and salad for lunch times usually. Then onto dinner time, now the ultimate cosy home day dinner for me is a home cooked roast dinner! I just can't get enough of the Yorkshires and the stuffing and roast potatoes with all the gravy! I'm the one who has to actually spend the two hours making the roast dinner, so if I'm having a really chilled out day, the next best option is of course a takeaway! Who doesn't want to slob around all day then order their favourite pizza to come to their door - perfect!

I love spending time in my home being super cosy and doing all my favourite things with Simon and the kittens, or if I'm feeling extra sociable my friends! It's so important to let yourself have a day or just a few hours in the afternoon to chill out and have some me time, so you'r ready to conquer the world again tomorrow!
I'm now going to make myself that healthy jacket potato and salad (to counter act that big fat Toby Carvery I had last night and the pizza I'm thinking about ordering tonight!) and snuggle up with my kittens, whilst I relax and maybe read a book this afternoon!

I'd love to know what your cosy home day essentials are beauties?
