Testing Wish,com Makeup


Hey Whisperers,

Over the past few months I've been ordering a few things of the website Wish.com , I've ordered things from the site before and although they do take quite a while to get here they've all been pretty good quality. One thing i hadn't tried much of however was the beauty section of the website, i had tried the odd makeup brush but never any of actual makeup products and so over the past few months I've ordered a few makeup products so that i can create this post, so lets get into it.


What is Wish.com ?

Wish.com is an website and app where you can buy a variety of products from beauty to clothing and jewellery. From what i can tell the majority of the products come from China so they do take a considerable amount of time to arrive. To me i see the website as being another kind of EBay site just with fixed prices. The majority of the products are super cheap and although they aren't always the most incredible quality they are generally good products.

What I Got?


UBUB Honour Light Roast Eye Shadow 
£1 each

For £1 you can't really go wrong with these shadows. I didn't realise when ordering that i had ordered a blue shade which is a shame because i probably won't us it but it is still beautiful. The gold shade however it gorgeous and definitely one that I'm going to be using a lot. Both shadows are more pigmented than i imagined however they are quite chalky. Although only £1 they blend amazingly and they stay shimmery on the eye all day which i was quite impressed with. I definitely recommend them.


Yanoina Waterproof Eyeliner
£1 for 2

If you know me you know that I love my eyeliner, so when  I saw this pack of  2 waterproof eyeliners for £1 i knew i had to try them out. The first thing i noticed about these liners is that they're super pigmented, for the price i wasn't expecting them to be so black as cheaper liners tend to be more grey toned than black. The pen on these liners are also quite thin which is amazing when it comes to liner. Overall they've pretty much become one of my favourite liners that I own and them only being £1 makes them 10x better. I'm definitely going to be ordering more soon.


Glod Minimal Trendiga Tint My Brows Gel
£1

I've seen products like this one on Instagram and YouTube so when i saw it on Wish i wanted to try it out. It is a lot different from how i expected it to be, it's quite thick and dark and although it says that it leaves your brows looking a dark brown it left mine looking a dark grey colour. However, it is supposed to stay on for a few days at least it came straight off when i used my toner on my face later in the night, which obviously isn't what you want do i was quite disappointing with it.


WOW Long Lasting Lip Colour in Romantic Bear 
£1

I knew when i ordered this that it was a fake but i still wanted to try it out for this post. I did think that I had ordered a more pink shade but I received a orange shade. The smell of this lip product is so strange, it smells just like a lolly pop. It does take a little while to dry on the lips but it definitely leaves a strong stain behind so I'd definitely double check what shade you get because they are strong stains.


Waterproof Matte Nude Lipgloss in 07
£2

Now I'm still not too sure on the colour or the feel of this lipstick. When i first saw it i loved the colour but on the lips it's a lot more pink than i thought. One thing i definitely don't like about this lipstick is how sticky it is once it has set and gone matte, i know you can solve this by just adding a little loose powder but it just doesn't feel the best on the lips. It is super long lasting and it definitely is waterproof so if the sticky finish doesn't bother you it is an alright product.

Swatches 


Top to Bottom

Waterproof Eyeliner
Brow Stain
Lip Stain
Waterproof Lipstick
Baked Shadows

Overall, Wish does have some good products and for the price it's definitely worth ordering some. When i was getting the links for these products they did have an offer on quite a few products that made them free so you just pay the postage which for most of the products is amazing as postage tends to only be between £1 and  £2 a product! If you'd like to see more posts like this let me know!

Summer Wishlist


Hey Whisperers,

About a month ago i did my spring wishlist and i loved writing that post so much that i decided to write another one, this time i'm going to be talking about my Summer Wishlist. Because i do have quite a few other things on my wishlist I might do another one of these posts later on in the summer so if that is something you want to see let me know!

My Summer Wishlist



If you've read my blog before, you'll know that I'm pretty much as pale as a ghost. So when i saw this product on a recent NikkiTutorials video i knew that i wanted to look into getting it. However, at £24.50 i don't want to rush and order it online in case i don't like it, so I'm going to wait until I can go into store and swatch it. I love the original Hoola but because I'm super pale I have to use a super light hand or i just end up looking like a orange mess.



I've seen these shadows all over Instagram, YouTube and Facebook for a while now and i love the look of them. I would love to get one of them but a like the Hoola bronzer i can't just buy it online because at £33.50 it is a very expensive purchase for what it is. Makeup Revolution did used to have a dupe but i think that they have been discontinued as I can't find them anywhere. This shade is absolutely gorgeous and it's the kind of thing I'd use a lot, i just want to swatch it first. 


I saw this highlighter on Jeffree Star's channel and it looked incredible. If you know me you know i love highlighters and this one looks like one I'd love. The only problem with this product is that it's only available in America which sucks but hopefully I'll be able to find it somewhere online that ships to the UK.



I saw this top online a few days ago and i fell in love, it looks so nice. I'm going shopping today so I'm hoping that I'll be able to find it in store, which seems rare. I do wish that they would open an online store it would make everything so much easier. It is quite cheap at £10 too which is always a plus. 




Nothing feels better than getting into a bed with fresh new bedding on, each season i try to change up my bedding obviously i can't always change it but i do try. I saw this bedding in store about a week ago an i hated it, but the more i thought about changing my bedding the more i loved it. It definitely screams summer to me, with the palm leaves and pink it's perfect. Hopefully i can find it in store soon because i love it.

I do have a 101 other things I'd love to try and buy this summer but if i named them all I'd end up with a never ending post so I'm going to stop here.

Whats on your summer wishlist?

My Dream Flat




Hey Whisperers,

Over the past few weeks I've seen quite a few of these kinds of posts on my twitter and i love them. I don't know what it is about looking at flats and houses online but i love it. So when i saw this series on LifeWithKtkinnes blog i knew i wanted to do something similar. Over on Katie's blog she talks through her dream flat room by room (read her series here) which I'm obsessed with by the way and so today i thought I'd write a post on my dream flat. So i hope you enjoy.

My Dream Flat


Layout 

One thing I've always wanted in a flat is an open plan kitchen and living space. There's just something about having an open living space that i love so that played a big part in the 'design' of my layout. I also wanted to have two bedrooms, one that i would keep as my room and another that i would make into an office. Last but not least i also wanted 2 bathrooms. If you know me then you know that i have a tonne of bath products and in turn i struggle to keep a bathroom clean, so I'd love to have two bathrooms one for me to use and another that i can actually keep clean for guests. 

Rooms


Living Room 

One thing i want my whole apartment to be is bright, with light colours, white grey and cream, and i want it to be open. In the living room I want a big fabric sofa with room to seat at least 5 people. I'd love some kind of shelves so that I can put all my little bits and bobs on display, my pictures with friends and family, plants and books. I think it looks so nice and you can never have enough room for all the little bits and bobs that we have. 


Kitchen

Just like the living room, i want the kitchen to be super open. One thing i want throughout the apartment is wooden floors too, they're super easy to clean (which I'd need because as soon as i move out I'm getting a dog) so that would be a must. The picture is pretty much what i want in a kitchen however, i would want wood counters instead of white, not for practicality but just because i love the way they look. I would also want the kitchen to have a breakfast bar area (i think that's what they're called) because although i love sitting down at a table and eating as a group I don't want a dining table in my flat, that way I'd have more room. 


Bedroom 

I've been looking at bedrooms on Pintrest for months so this decision was easy for me to make. My dream room is pretty much a pastel pink,blue or purple and white theme. I'd love a double bed with white simple bedding. One thing i want to incorporate into my room is some rose gold and also a lot of artwork (most of which I'd get from DorkFace on Etsy). I also want a lot of light in my room and also throughout the flat, it's easy to take blog pictures with. I'd also have a TV, I have one at the moment and I love it, i can't sleep without sound so having a TV is a must. 


En-suite

I love open bathrooms with clean white toilets, baths and sinks. They're just so pretty and calming. I don't know if I'd want my bathroom to be this big, but i do want to have room to move around. One thing I'd definitely have in my en-suite is a bath, if you know me you know that i love Lush products so i would have to have a bath in my en-suite.  One thing i would want that isn't in this picture is more storage, as i previously said i have a lot of bath products so I'd need somewhere to store them. 



Office

Just like my bedroom i want to incorporate a lot of gold and rose gold into my 'office' which honestly i cringe saying. It would be more like a blogging room. A room where i had area's set up for blogging pictures, a desk that i could sit at and write posts instead of writing in bed where i just end up watching TV . I'd also love a sofa in my office so that friends could come and join me when I'm blogging. I also think that sometimes you just need to take a break and chill out instead of forcing yourself to work and i think having a sofa to just take a break on would be good too.  I would also have the sofa be a sofa bed so that i could have friends come and stay too.


Bathroom

Last but not least is the guest bathroom. Like my room it would have a bath and shower combo so that anyone staying over could feel comfortable. Something i love when watching Zoella's blog is the small tray that she puts together for people staying over so I'd also love doing that with a tray of their favourite bath products ect. I don't really mind what the guest bathroom looks like as long as its crisp an clean as I'd probably just stick to using my en-suite instead.  


I would love my dream flat, but i know that it's something that won't be happening until very far in the future, but it was fun looking. I of course have to thank Katie for giving me the idea for this so of course check out her series on her blog because it's amazing!

What would your dream flat look like?

Birchbox Unboxing - May 2017


Hey Whisperers,

Another month, another Birchbox. I honestly don't know where the last month has gone it feels like just yesterday that i was sitting down and writing last months Birchbox post. I've been quite impressed with the boxes so far so i'm hoping that this months box is going to be just as good! So lets get into it.


Birchbox Unboxing - May 2017



What is Birchbox?

If you're new to Birchbox, Birchbox is a monthly subscription box that you receive each month with 5 products to try out. The products can range from sample size to full size and they also range in price. All products in the box can be found on the Birchbox website where the box is purchased for £12.95 each month. This month Birchbox has introduced a new scheme called Birchbox Benefits, where after 6 months of being subscribed, you become a Birchbox VIP meaning you get the first chance to pick a product or the design of your box each month. As a  Birchbox VIP you also get 15% off everything in the Birchbox shop with it a pretty good deal for just being subscribed. 

What I Got This Month 


RRP - £18

If you've been a reader of my blog for awhile you'll know that I have a serious mascara obsession, so when i saw this in my box i got super excited. Now i do love the effect that this mascara has on my lashes, but the brush is insanely big which makes it so difficult to put on. I don't know if it's just me being clumsy but i ended up with it on my nose, cheek and eyelid which i never get with regular mascaras. I think if it was a full size product and the weight was more balanced i wouldn't have had such a problem but with the tester size it was super difficult to use. 


RRP - £25

One thing i love about Birchbox is being able to try out different skincare products, this liquid exfoliant looks like one that I'm going to love. Now if you know me you know that i have acne prone skin so anything with Salicylic acid in is amazing. Something that i have found with products like this is that they pretty much smell like nail polish remover which, although isn't super important, is something i thought i would mention. This sample is quite generous for a face product so i will hopefully be able to test it out quite a bit. 


RRP- £18.50

Now although I do absolutley love this brand it is one that Birchbox have sent out not to long ago in Novembers box. Last time i received a Protect and Detangle spray and this time it's a Volumizing spray. If they hadn't sent out this brand before i would have been quite excited as it smells absolutely incredible but it is something they seem to be sending out quite regularly. Apart from it being a brand repeat, it is a good sample size for a spray and it does last quite a while. Plus as i previously mentioned it smells absolutely incredible. 


RRP £27

Whish alike Beauty Protector is another brand I've received, this time in Octobers box. For me i don't really have a use for a Firming Body Cream as i pretty much just use coconut oil as a moisturiser so I'm not going to be getting much use out of this product however, it is a pretty good sized sample size. I did try some of it out on my arm and it did feel quite tightening which was pretty nice, I'm not sure if I'm going to use it again but it does work quite well.


RRP - £14.49 Full Size

I was super excited when i saw that this month's box was going to have a full sized eye shadow, i didn't see my email in time so i didn't get to pick the shade which i regret as i would have loved the lighter shade. I'm pretty much a neutral eye kind of gal, so i have pretty much no use for this shadow. My shadow also came unsealed so quite a bit of the product was inside of the inside of the little box it came in which kind of sucked. The shade i got was Fifty Shades which i can only describe as a metallic gun metal shade. It is super pretty so hopefully i can find a good use for it. The price of this shadow does cover the entire price of the box too which is amazing. 

Total RRP For This Month's Box 

£102.99 

Overall, I'm not overly excited about this months box. It does have some good products but I'm pretty much only going to use 2-3 out of the 5 products. I think that I'm going to alter the settings on my account as i have been receiving quite a few haircare products that I don't really use.  

As always I hope you've enjoyed this post!

Are you subscribed to Birchbox?
 If so did you get anything different in your box this month? 
Let me know in the comments down below!


If you want to try out Birchbox make sure to use my link to get £5 off your first box making it just £7.95!

PS.. Pure Glow Review


Hey Whisperers,

If you know me you now that I'm a huge highlighting fan, so when i came across the PS... Pure Glow Palette in Primark this week i knew i had to get it. I've been looking at getting the Anastasia Glow Kits for quite a while now and this one seems to be a pretty good affordable option! So lets get into the review!

PS.. Pure Glow Palette


Packaging.

The Packaging of this palette is absolutely gorgeous. I don't know what it is about marble packaging but it just makes any product look so elegant and high end. The inside of this palette is also gorgeous with a metallic rose gold sheet around the pans which mixed with the marble makes the palette look even more amazing. The palette also has a magnet in it which keeps it closed which if you've been here a while you'll know, you'll know that this is something i love in makeup products. Being clumsy i drop a lot of my palettes and they do tend to break so these magnetic palettes keep my products together for a lot longer which is always great. 


Shades

One thing i loved most about this palette is the variety of shades. For £5 you get 4 shades, each with 7g of product. As a pale ghost i will only be able to use 3 out of the 4 shades in the palette as a highlighter, but for just £5 i decided to get it anyway. In the palette you get a white shade names Desert, a Golden Champagne called Glimmer, a Peachy shade called Eden and a Golden shade called Firefly. Each shade name pretty much fits the shade perfectly which i love, For a palette of this price i do love how different each shade is, my usual drugstore highlighters cost around £3 each and most of them, although marketed as different, are pretty much the same shade when applied to the skin but just looking at these i an already tell that, that isn't going to be the case.



Swatches

I was actually quite surprised with how pigmented these highlighters were, They're all super soft, which i also didn't expect and they feel amazing on the skin. As i previously said I'm pretty sure that there's no way I'll be able to use the darkest shade Fire-fly as a highlighter but I'm definitely going to be using it as an eye shadow because it's absolutely gorgeous. Now the other three shades are absolutely stunning, the lightest shade Desert is absolutely gorgeous it pretty much pure white shade which i think would look amazing on the inner corner. The next shade down, Glimmer is pretty much my favourite shade in the palette, it's pretty much my skin tone which i love, it's super shimmery but it isn't at all glittery which is rare in more affordable highlighters. Last of all, Eden, this shade is absolutely beautiful, it's super pigmented and it has such a gorgeous colour in the light, it's pretty much rose gold and I'm obsessed.

Overall, i am super impressed with this palette, for £5 it has an incredible range of shades and each shade is not only different but they are all very pigmented and definitely worth trying out. I found this palette in my local Primark store so it should definitely be in stock still! 

I hope you've enjoyed this post!

Treasured Blogs #1



Hey Whisperers,

As a Blogger, I obviously love writing my posts but I love reading other blogs too. Over the past year or so I've fallen in love with so many incredible blogs and after being features in A Pearly Dreams favourite blogs I was inspired to write my own post on my favourite blogs. I of course have to 100% credit Rachel for giving me the inspiration for this post so make sure you head over to her incredible blog and check out her posts! So lets get into it!

Treasured Blogs #1



Rachel, the inspiration behind this post and also the creator of one of my current favourite blogs. I found Rachel's blog when she tagged my blogging community page (here) and as soon as i read one post i was hooked. Rachel's blog is so full of positivity and it's just such a nice blog to read. Another thing i am in absolute awe of is Rachel's photography! If you've been here a while you'll know that I still can't get to grips with photography and I do struggle a bit with it so when i read Rachel's blog i am just in complete awe of how amazing her photography is! Of course she is the main reason I'm writing this post so make sure you check out her blog here



Morgan's blog was one of the first that I ever read when I still read it to this day. Morgan is such a lovely, caring and supportive person and her blog has helped me so much when it comes to blogging. Morgan has a whole section of her blog dedicated to 'Blogger Chatter' and let me just tell you, it is a lifesaver. Looking at Morgan's blog you would have no clue that she is just 14, she is so incredibly talented and I am in constant awe of how incredible her blog is. Morgan's blog is just so versatile and it pretty much has something for everyone. Morgan is also a super talented photographer, like seriously, her pictures are absolutely amazing. I did a collaboration with Morgan and a few other bloggers not too long ago so click here to read that here and of course check out her incredible blog here.


The Life Of A Glasgow Girl

Jordanne is possibly one of the most kind bloggers i have ever had the pleasure of talking to. Jordanne's blog has a bit of everything from Beauty to Lifestyle and also Parenting (her son is the most adorable little boy ever by the way). Jordanne's blog is just such a fun packed page and I'm completely obsessed with it. Jordanne also co-runs BloggersTribe over on twitter, a blogging community that helps Bloggers share their posts. I've been reading Jordanne's blog for around a year now and I won't be stopping anytime soon, of course check her blog here and make sure you follow BloggersTribe on Twitter too!


Georgia's Beauty Box

When it comes to Georgia i am a little biased but her blog is one of my all time favourites. Knowing Georgia in real life and knowing how much work she has put into her blog just makes me love it even more. Georgia's blog is all about everything Beauty, it has some incredible product reviews and i am 110% obsessed with her photography too. Georgia is taking a break from blogging a the moment but i definitely recommend checking out some of her posts because they're incredible, some of my favourites being her Glossybox Unboxings and also her Monthly Favourite posts! I absolutely love Georgia's photography and I am so proud of how far her blog has come in the last year and I can't wait for her to return to blogging.


I again want to thank A Pearly Dream for not only being the inspiration behind this post but for also including me in her favourite bloggers!

As Always,

April Favourites


Hey Whisperers,

Wow, it's been a while since I've done a 'monthly favorites' post, but over the past month I've fallen in love with quiet a few new products and so i thought I'd jump straight back into the monthly favourites pool and share them all with you. It's been a while since I've written one so hopefully this goes well, as always I hope you enjoy and lets get into the post.

April Favourites 


Primark Vetiver and Vanilla Candle

This candle smells absolutely incredible, kind of like a men's spray. Which yes i know sounds strange, but i love. There's just something about how this candle makes a room smell that makes it so insanely cozy and warm. It does claim that this candle can burn up to 30 hours which is amazing for a candle of this size plus it only cost £3, so i will be putting that to the test. I did get this towards the beginning of the month so it should still be in stores, like always with Primark products i can't link it as they don't have an online store but it should still be in stores in the home wear section.


PS... Insta Girl Perfecting Stick

Before this primer I'd never really tried out a 'solid' primer but I'm definitely going to look into trying more . I'm the kind of girl who somehow always ends up going over the top with primer so this one has helped my priming to a minimum. Now it does say that it minimises the appearance of pores which i don't agree with but for £2 it's definitely a decent primer that leaves the skin feeling super smooth and prepped. 


Avon True Nutraeffects Active Moisture Lightweight Facial Oil

If you've been here a while you'll know that coconut oil is my all time favourite moisturiser but lets be honest I don't always have the time or energy to apply a full face of coconut oil so this Avon Oil has been my life saver for those late skincare nights. This oil sinks in super fast and leaves my skin feeling so soft and smooth it's amazing. I'd been wanting to try out a face oil for quiet a while after seeing them all over Instagram and it was definitely worth it. Unfortunately i couldn't find this product online, but if you get in contact with your nearest Avon Representative you should be able to purchase it.



Now as most of you know i am 100% a winged liner girl i pretty much wear a wing with all of my makeup looks so when i stumbled across this in Superdrug a few weeks ago i had to give it a go. For £4 it's amazing, it dries matte, it's super black and i mean just look at that packaging it's stunning. One thing i will say is that it does dry super fast so if you aren't comfortable with liner and you struggle a little i definitely think their Eye Define liner is a better bet as it gives you more time to perfect that perfect wing.



I did a whole review on my Colourpop order a few months ago (read here) and after that i used them for awhile and then they kind of got added to my drawers and got forgotten but over the past month I've fallen back in love with Blaze in particular. It's such an  gorgeous gold shade and it has incredible glitter in it which just makes any normal Makeup look that little bit more pretty. These shadows stick in place all day and the pigment is amazing so i definitely recommend trying them out.

This month has been a pretty busy one for me but I've definitely managed to find some amazing products within all the chaos. I hope you've enjoyed this monthly favourites post!

What's been your go to product this month?
Let me know in the comments down below.

My Netflix Addiction - What I'm Watching Right Now


Hey Whisperers,

There is nothing quite like binge watching a series on Netflix, it's just something so comforting and cozy and well it's pretty much been my life over the past few weeks. Whether it's my ridiculous back pain or just a cozy night in I've spent hours upon hours binge watching series on Netflix and so today i thought I'd share some of the ones I've been loving.

What I'm Watching Right Now




13 Reasons Why

If you haven't heard of this series where have you been?! I was pulled into watching this series after I saw it all over twitter and Instagram and I am so glad that i was. 13 Reasons Why is a Netflix Original show adapted from a book about a girl who committed suicide and left behind 13 tapes with 13 reasons why she killed herself. Talking about this show without spoiling it is so hard but it is honestly one of the most amazing, important and most incredible shows i have ever watched. Now before you watch it I do have to say that it does contain some sensitive topics and it has quite a few graphic scenes so if you are triggered by themes such as sexual abuse or self harm please be careful when watching this series, it is an amazing series but it is not worth sacrificing your own mental health and well being to watch.



Pretty Little Liars

If you've been a reader of my blog for awhile you'll know that I'm a huge fan of this series. I've been watching it since the start and I love it. If you haven't heard of the show it is a series about 4 teenage girls who begin receiving anonymous texts after the murder of their best friend Alison. The texts then spiral into a whirlwind of threats, attacks and deaths. The show can be slow at times but it's definitely one of my favourite shows. It returned last week to start the next and final series of the show. 



Grimm

I started watching this show a few years ago but I somehow got distracted and stopped watching it. Last week i got back into watching it and I'm in love all over again. Grimm is a sci-fi show about a Portland PD Detective who finds out that he is a descendant of hunters who are  supposed to keep the city safe from magical creatures. It's an action packed show and it definitely keeps you guessing about whats going to happen next. If anything i suggest watching the pilot episode because it definitely has you on the edge of your seat. 



Girl Boss

Girl Boss is a more recent show that has been added to Netflix. So far i haven't got a strong opinion on it but it does have some funny jokes and the fact that Ru Paul is in it had me sold on watching it. The show is centred around a girl who recently lost her job and searches for a way to find a new job without actually having to go out and getting one. This leads to her starting an EBay store called Nasty Gal Vintage. The show is based on the book Girl Boss which was written by Sophia Amorous about how she created the now insanely popular Nasty Gal. So far I'm liking the show but it is quite slow to get into. 

As you can tell I'm pretty much obsessed with Netflix right now! If you have any recommendations don't forget to leave them in the comments below!

Models Own Sculpt and Glow Highlighter Review


Hey Whisperers,

Everyone loves a good glow right? So when i saw this Models Own highlighter I knew i had to swatch it and as soon as i swatched it i knew i had to have it. I kept it out of my highlighter collection that i posted a few weeks ago (read here) as i wanted to dedicate a post solely to it as I'm pretty much obsessed with it. So let's get into it.

Models Own Sculpt and Glow Highlighting Powder Review


Packaging

The highlighter i picked up was the Models Own Sculpt and Glow highlighter in 01 Golden Sand. I love how sleek and pretty the packaging of this product is. It's an iridescent white shade that just looks and feels so high end and on the top it has the Models Own logo in a metallic silver (which i clearly forgot to take a picture off). One thing i love most about this product is that it magnetically closes which is new for me in a powder product. If you know me i tend to drop and break my powder products but this has been one that i have managed to keep together thanks to the magnet. Another thing i love is the mirror, having a mirror in a 'drugstore' powder product is pretty rare but this mirror is the perfect size and I love it. 


Product + Price

Now this highlighter is like nothing else i own. It's super pigmented, so much so that you only have to dip your brush into the compact and you have enough for your whole cheek bone (or if you're me 2 dips is enough).  I don't really know why it's called Golden Sand as for me it's nowhere near a Golden colour and is instead more of a peachy/champagne colour which i think is perfect for people with a shade of skin to me (aka ghostly). It's super shimmery but it isn't at all glittery which i find hard to find in a drugstore highlighter. The price of this product is also pretty amazing as it only costs £8.99! Which for this quality is amazing. I did get mine a little cheaper as it was on offer when i brought it which made it even more amazing.


Swatch Time

I always find swatching highlighters difficult but hopefully you can tell how amazing this product is. In the picture it does look quite gold but in person it's definitely more peach. To do this swatch i pretty much swiped once across the compact and as you can see it was more than enough product for me to swatch. The product isn't at all dry or chunky which i love and I'm pretty sure it's going to last a long time due to how pigmented it is.

Overall I am completely in love with this product, it looks gorgeous on the cheeks and for the price i honestly have no complaints. I definitely recommend trying it out in store as it's definitely worth it!

I hope you've enjoyed this post!

Spring Wishlist 2017

Hey Whisperers,

Over the past few weeks there's been a few things that I've seen, loved, put back and added to my wishlist. I don't treat myself often so instead i add things to my never ending wishlist and then when i have the money i buy one thing to treat myself and so today i thought i would share my spring wishlist with you guys! I hope you enjoy.

My Spring Wishlist


This collaboration looks incredible, I've been a huge fan of Nikkie for a few years now and to see her release a collection with such an big brand is amazing. All of the colours look gorgeous and i mean come on look at that highlighter! I don't know if i will be getting this collection mainly because I am trying to save up my money and this is quite a big purchase at £55 but it is definitely staying on my Wishlist.




I saw this dress on Boohoo recently and i fell in love. I buy the same thing year in year out when it comes to spring/summer clothes but this year i want to change it up a bit. I want to add more dresses and skirts into my wardrobe and this dress looks perfect for it. It's also super affordable as it's only £18



I am in love with this perfume, so much that I've gone through 2 bottles in the past year. It's just such a perfect sweet scent that i can't help but love it. The cheapest bottle of this perfume is £31 on it's own but the gift set is only £16.99 so if you want to try it out i definitely recommend getting the gift set instead.



I've been eyeing up the Kat Von D Everlasting Lipsticks for a while but because they are pretty pricey at  £17 i want to make sure i get the perfect shade for me. Looking at online swatches I've fallen in love with both Lolita II and Bow and Arrow. They're both such beautiful nudes but they still have that super different colour which i love in a lipstick. 



Primark Chip Tea Cup

#ChipGate is seriously a thing, i have been looking for this Chip mug since it was released in March but i still haven't found it. I absolutely love Beauty and the Beast and Chip is one of my all time favourite characters, this mug sold out within hours and i can totally understand why. It's just so god damn cute and for £5 it's definitely a steal!

So many cute things and so little time and money to get them with! I can't wait too see what i actually end up purchasing off this list as i've loved creating it,

What's on your Spring Wishlist?
