I've moved!

After a few hours of googling and html'ing, I've managed to move my blog over to Wordpress (boo you traitor, I know)!! I'm now here -  I'm still getting to grips with Wordpress and don't really know how to use it! eek help!

I'm a bad human being

Well long time no see. After writing a Sociology essay about Functionalism Families, I've had a massive breakthrough (again, I know). Just realised that I haven't blogged since June! That's awful! I'm so so so ashamed of myself! Eventhough I've just started Sixth Form and doing my A Levels, I'm going to try my hardest to try blogging again. Don't mark my words, but I'll try to post at least twice a week!

Once again, I'm so sorry to anyone who's been reading, and sorry to myself -sniffs-...

Quick Benefit Porefessional Review

Benefit Porefessional Full Size £24.50
If I'm honest, this product isn't a stand out to me. The consistency of this is very balm like and sinks into the skin very quickly. I've found that you don't need much and a little goes a long way! I've been using this on my nose, forehead and under my eyes to prime. Admittedly it does slightly minimise the pores on my nose, but not majorly. It's a lovely product and I will use up the sample, but I'm not sure I'd repurchase it. I've been looking for a great primer, and I still haven't found one! If you know any stand out primers, please let me know in the comments! Also, the length of time my makeup stays on my face isn't increased with the use of this product- I can definitely apply my makeup without it and not miss it!

Bit of a let down for such a raved about product.

Mac Lipstick Collection

All Mac Lipsticks £15.
From L-R, Peach Blossom, Pure Zen, Vegas Volt, Crosswires
My Mac Lipstick Collection is slowly growing and I'm loving it! In order of purchase, my first was Pure Zen, Peach Blossom, Crosswires then Vegas Volt (you can see I've got increasingly braver as I have bought them!). All of the lipsticks, except Vegas Volt which is an Amplified finish, are Cremesheen finishes. This means that they glide on the lips but don't neccessarily wear for very well. In my experience, Pure Zen and Peach Blossom don't wear for long, especially if you're eating/drinking. But Crosswires is more durable on the lips as it is a bolder colour- I'd say around 3 hours. Vegas Volt, Amplified finish, lasts for ages on the lips and is very creamy. It is definitely my 'go to' colour this summer as it compliments my olive skin tone perfectly!

On my wishlist for Mac Lipsticks I have: Girl about Town, Lady Danger, Morange, Impassioned and Pink Plaid. What do you think? Which Mac Lipsticks are your favourite?

Pastel Flower Nails

This cute design is incredibly easy and anyone can do it! Paint your thumb, middle and little fingers in any pastel colours of your choice- I chose Models Own Blooboo, and Barry M Strawberry and Berry Ice Cream. For your remaining nails, leave them transparent and paint pastel flowers using a dotting tool/cocktail stick- I used Models Own Lemon Meringue, Barry M Peach Melba and Berry Ice Cream. Inside the flowers, place a small dot of gold polish- mine is from Models Own. At the base of your pastel nails, paint white flowers with a gold dot. Repeat this on the other hand in different colours with alternating fingers.
