A little update...

So for all of you guys that read my blog, I thought I'd give you a little update as to why I haven't been posting as much!

I recently got a new job, full time, with... Dior!
Very exciting!

I've been training, going up and down london every week and I literally haven't had the time to post, or I've been too tired! I even forgot about my August GlossyBox coming through! (I wasn't that pleased with it!)

Just wanted to let you know, I'm still here, I'm just struggling to fit the time in to post at the moment!
I've bought some new products lately that I really want to share with you all and soon enough I'm sure I'll be able to share posh Dior products too!

But I hope you're all well! If you've got any ideas of things I can post, or things I can post that aren't time consuming, let me know!

Hope you're well!
Talk soon!

Sleek Pout Paint

Went and bought the newly released, Sleek Pout Paint the other day! Sorry I haven't been blogging recently, haven't really felt up to it! I've been doing loads of interviews for jobs etc, so I'm pretty stressed out atm!
And because of all this, I decided for a little pick me up and bought these items.

My first ever MUA product, a £1 lipstick!
The new Pout Paints by Sleek in the colours, (l-r) 161 Minx and 162 Milkshake.

I've been waiting for the pout paints to come out and luckily found them in a near by Superdrug store. 

All of the colours were pretty crazy so I pretty much decided on the most natural ones. 
Here are the others:

I'm pretty sure this idea has come from the OCC Lip Tars in America. 
If you haven't heard of these items click here for the OCC website.
I've always wanted to try the OCC Lip Tars ever since I found out about them but didn't think I could get my hands on them until I found this website. So, I'm pretty sure I'll be ordering some soon!

So here's an emphasis of how the paint pout works. A little goes a very long way! You literally only need the tiniest amount. 

(A blob even smaller than this)

(Here's the blob spread)

Here is 162 Milkshake:

A little bit defeating in colour. I'd say it's a little lighter than what it looks in the tube. The texture is kind of watery but thick. I picked these 2 colours up thinking they looked natural and they don't really, look? natural? Hmm...

Here is 161 Minx:

You can see the difference between the 2 but I don't if I'd say either of them are natural. 

Apart from this, the product is nice but at this stage, I'm debatable as to whether I'd purchase them again. Simply because of the price and the range of colours. They were £5 each. You can mix the colours together so I'll try that soon. But at the moment, I'm not won over. I do still want to try the OCC Lip Tars and I'll probably order some now to compare them against Sleek's idea.

What do you think?

Aaaaaaaand lasly, the MUA lipstick in shade 7:

Like this! Good for a £1. As are all the other products! I'd say this is a very good pigment for the price you pay and the lipstick does feel strangely moisturising which you wouldn't expect. But yes! Lovely product, more than likely going to look at the rest of the range now!

So I hope you're all well!
Feel free to give me ideas on what to blog/video on as I'm not sure at the moment!

Bye for now!

My new babies

I'm getting bad at posting lately, but I simply haven't bought alot! Also, I've gotta watch my money!

Saying that... I did splurge out and buy these gorgeous shoes from Office.

Oh, wow.
I love them! I was looking for a new pair as I was going out that night and fancied treating myself. Oops!
I knew I wanted wedges in a kind of nude colour, so that's what I was aiming for! (As I hate shopping aimlessly!)
Went in Primark, Dorothy Perkins, Topshop, you name it, I went there. Then this gorgeous pair caught my eye! Originally they were £65 (depressing, I know) But after a nice lady who works there saw me looking at them, she asked "What are you thinking?" I simply said, "I like the shoes! I just don't like the price!" (Hahaaaa...)
And with saying that, BAM! "Would it tempt you if I said I'll give you 10% off?"

"Eeeerrrrrr, yes!"

So, it just goes to show with a bit of bartering, you can get somewhere!
I know it was only about £6 off, but still, better than nothing!

And then...

I went shopping round my local area and found these beauties in another shop! For some reason, I'm really into wedges at the moment!

They look much better on! This photo doesn't really do them justice.
But I fancied a pair of lower wedges to wear casually! I'm pretty tall anyway, about 5"6/7. So this height was just, ok. I still look tall with them but not massive.
And the best of all, they were only, £5! Whaaaaaattt!
They were from a shop called 'Risky' (cringe I know).

But for a fiver! I'm definately not complaining!
