Long time no speak. I have been absent from this blog for nearly 2 weeks. I felt like I was getting a little writers block and then my cousin from Wales came over and I entered lazy mode and then I got flu and was writing a will at one stage (I'm not good at being sick) but now I have returned and to kick it all off I thought I would talk about 5 things that I have loved this month with a little bit of beauty and lifestyle.
To kick off the beauty side of things I have been using the new Lancome Hypnóse Volume A Porter mascara* I usually don't go near non waterproof mascara however this mascara is the bomb. It has a thin tapered brush that grabs all the lashes leaving them voluminous without being clumpy and separated to give a lengthened effect. For me its a winner as it adds volume, length and holds a curl while feeling really lightweight on the eyes. Also the gunmental packaging is absolutely stunning. I highly recommend this mascara to everyone who has lashes basically. The formula is on fleek!...did I use that expression right?
Next is the Beauty Blender, I mentioned this last month but I am just loving it so much. However I have no idea how but its has torn a little on the top like the sponge is still in tact but it has rip holes in it. I read online its from washing it and your nails ripping it but I literally have stumps at the moment due to me biting them again so I really have no idea how this went down. Not impressed but I only use the bottom so it hasn't effected makeup application and the finish is flawless so I am still loving this little black sponge, I'm just annoyed its ripped.
Lastly for beauty is Mac Mehr lipstick. This is a matte lipstick....I know am I ok? I never wear matte shades as I get super dry lips but this colour is so pretty. Mehr is a medium blue toned pink and for a matte is actually really creamy. I love teaming it with NYX Buttercream in Tiramisu when my lips are a little drier but I usually wear it alone and its a beaut. I think it would work for most skin tones and I never hear anyone talk about this one so check it out next time your in Mac. I will do a post on it soon as I want to show you it teamed with the buttergloss so stay tuned.
Last but not least I finally found a Jon Snow Funko Pop. I have looked for one of these for ages, I know I could have ordered online but the shipping prices of some places on ebay is crazy so I told myself I would wait to find one in a shop and after a little spontaneous trip to Dublin last weekend here he is. It doesn't do anything but I love it, look at his little sword haha.
So there are my 5 things this month. I will be back in full swing now starting from today with the blog and if you have any requests feel free to ask me in the comments. What products have you been loving this month?
