My favourite lip products (NYX)

I swear, that literally this last year or so NYX Professional Makeup have exploded immensely with their makeup, even more so with their lip products.

I have never really been a fan of lip products, as the shape of my mouth isn’t really what I call ‘attractive’, so have always steered clear of anything dramatic or bright.

Then I saw these…

l-r NYX Butter Gloss in Madeleine, Soft Matte Lip Cream in Rome and Abu Dhabi

 

 

They both go on really well, the colour pigment of the lip cream is amazing, and honestly lasts a fair few hours wear.

I picked mine up from my local Boots stores, but they sell online too and do not cost a lot, these were £5.50 and £6.00 each.

Have a great evening

REVIEW: NYX Professional Makeup Micro Brow Pencil

My first ever brow product was a very old Rimmel one, and I think it is still lurking around somewhere in one of my bags hanging in my wardrobe…

Moving on a fair few years, and I have tried many various different products to achieve that well groomed brow look.

I think I have finally found what I have been looking for…

This!

NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Espresso £8.00

 

I have to add that, prior to me finding this one, I was splurging on the Anastasia Beverly Hills (ABH) Brow Wiz £15.50 which is identical to this one, and double the price!

Worth its weight, its simply amazing!

As Frank Sinatra sang so famously… “That’s Life”

I do wonder sometimes, at what point in time will I ever feel complete or at least happy. It doesn’t seem complicated, aren’t we all entitled to be happy? But I for one thought that being happy came at a cost. To who’s expense exactly?

People say, “life is what you make it”, what’s that supposed to mean? I never once invisioned my life to be like it is right now.

Ok, I didn’t do particularly well at school with my education, but I did go on to do college and I did night school for 2 years, but where did it get me?

Im laying in bed again procrastinating about my life now as a 29 (going on 30), mum of 3, and I think. Is THIS it? Is this what my life has become?

I do think I’m jealous of how other people live their lives, the amount of friends they have, their social status etc, I always think to myself, why dont I have that too…

There isn’t really an answer to that question, as I guess other people may be thinking the exact same thing as me.

I have a loving, trusting, caring partner who supports and understands me and three handsome sons, and I ‘probably’ couldn’t ask for more than that.

I guess ‘that’s life’ really, isn’t it?

In a room full of people. No one can hear you scream.

Demons.

Demons of depression is like being in a pool full of water and drowning even though you know how to swim. No one understands.

Everyone says “you look to nice today, with your hair and makeup on” blah blah blah, and all your want to do is scream at them and tell them that your blind at the fact that all I want to do is rip your head off and scream at you.

Ignorance ISN’T bliss.

This isn’t a phase…

NYX Glitter.. you can never have enough…

I’m a girl. SHOCK.

To be honest with you, I have always been a lover of pink, purple, sparkles, glitter and all things ‘pretty’.

In a home full of males, which include my man, my dog Rex, and our three boys, for me to be able to have a corner of the bathroom or a desk full of makeup is simply essential!

I also never really get the chance to wear full on glam, I do make a pretty good attempt I hasten to add, but never every day like this, as shown below.

I have a few different sorts of glitter beauty products which include gel pens, pigments, loose glitters, and pans/ palettes.

If you want, I could do a blog this week on my glitter collection, if you so wish…

Below is NYX ‘Face and Body’ Glitter in 09 (or Pink).

You can never have enough glitter…

 

Until next time… C xx

REVIEW: Bloom & Wild

So the other day, whilst I was I had a rare quiet moment, I received an email from Bloom & Wild, and somehow without hesitation I thought I would give them a try…

Boy I was not disappointed…

This blog has no name…

Not sure how to write this. Or how to explain my thoughts or feelings.

I have been silent on here for a long while, not because I wanted to but because I have just not been feeling great. Or even good.

For the past few months I’ve not been happy. Now I do not mean its Allen or my children, but just my general mood. Not happy chappy.

People are quick to assume you fine, that nothing is wrong with you, until you snap, and then you keep snapping. Until you want to run people down in the road, start zoning out and day dream…

Like that’s NOT normal.

So anyway.

Yesterday was the pressure cooker moment.

I exploded.

Got to the point where I rang the Samaritans. I have never ever got to that low point in my life ever, and to think I would have to pick the phone up and ring them- and for the first 5,6, 7 mins I was just hysterically crying.

Anyways after another Dr.s appointment, it turns out I still have PTSD. Joy. Although its not like I didn’t think I still had a touch of it…

So plan of action and whats next?

Well, more appointments, and still waiting on counselling as CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) didn’t work and it was cancelled- by them I may add NOT me.

So that’s the update.

Just to add…. If I hear one more person tell me, I must be fine as my face looks soooo pretty made up etc etc I will go the FUCK out on you! So you have been warned. Its what keeps me happy. So leave it.

 

Byeeee C xx
