I Got My Hair Done!

As I'm sure some of yous may or may not know, I have incredibly dark hair and although I have died my hair in the past to red and purple etc. I have always went back to dark because I love it and I always thought it suited me the best, although my boyfriend would disagree. But anyway, my boyfriend's sister is a hairdresser in Belfast and her salon uses the brand Wella; and they were coming to the salon to do a colour day - which basically means they talk to the hairdressers about up coming fashion trends and how to achieve them -  so she needed a model, and I kindly offer myself up to the plate because... why not? A change would be nice and if it's being done professionally then even better! 
Her idea was to do a rose gold inspired look, but obviously because my hair was so dark, it would be quite hard to achieve that colour in an hour or two but she mixed the colour anyway and just hoped for the best - and I fell in love with the colour! It wasn't really rose gold, it was more red/copper colour which was still beautiful.

So here is the before photo:

And here is the after;

The roots were still kept quite dark, with the colour being brought down from the fringe. I'M IN LOVE!

Revlon UltraHD Matte Lip Colour - Review

For some time now I have been really into liquid lipsticks, especially matte as this is the big trend at the minute and being a make-up lover, I have to jump on the band wagon and embrace it. So when I seen that Revlon had released a new lip product, I had to get my hands on them and I'm so glad I did.
These retail for £8.99 each and they have 7 shades - as Revlon was on offer in Boots for 3 for 2 I decided to only picked up 3 of my favourite shades.

The packaging of these products is lovely - its a frosted glass bottle with silver detailing so it looks and feels like very good quality. 
The product itself is a dream, it has a slight sweet scent which I love, the formula is very moisturising and velvety - even when it dries to a matte finish, it doesn't dry out my lips or make them uncomfortable which is a big plus. It also doesn't go patchy or rub off around the inside of my mouth which is great, and it lasts all day/night long! The colour payoff is amazing also, with one swipe you get a very opaque colour so this will last me a very long time.

Overall, I think this product is great and as it's from the drugstore, its widely available and affordable so go check it out! :)

Book Haul

I realised that I haven't done a post about books in forever! And considering how much I read and love books I'm going to try and post a bit more about them and build up my book reviews a bit more! So I'm going to share with you all today a book haul as I have picked up quite a few books in the past few months

Going Out Makeup

I went out for a nightout with my boyfriend on Saturday and it was the first time I'd been since before Christmas so I wanted to go full glam with my make-up so I thought I would share it with you 

This was the look I created - it's very smokey on the eyes with big lashes, the face is quite flawless with a defined contour and bronzed cheeks with quite a pink blush to the cheeks, I also kept the lips a nudey pink shade.

These are all of the products I used to create this look;
Primer: No7 Airbrush Away
Foundation: No7 Airbrush Away in Deeply Honey
Concealer: Freedom Pro Correct and Conceal palette, Bourjois City Radiance in 01
Contour: Freedom Cream Contour Palette, Makeup Revolution Contour Palette
Bronzer: No7 Dual Bronzer Compact
Blush: L'Oreal Blush Sculpt in Soft Rosy
Highlight: Feedom Highlight Palette and Bourjois Bronzer
Brows: Freedom Brow Pomade in Ebony and Rimmel Brow Gelin Dark Brown
Eyes: Rimmel Eyeshadow Primer, Max Factor Eyeshadow Palette, Rimmel Exaggerate Eyeliner
Lashes: N7 Lash Curler, No7 Velvet Lash Mascara and Eyelure False Lashes in No100
Lips: Collection Lip Liner and Maxfacotr Lipfinity in Pearly Nude
L'Oreal Infallible Setting Spray to ensure it lasts all night

Kylie Jenner Dupes?

I am a huge fan of Kylie Jenner's Lip range and signature lip colours and when I seen that she was releasing her kits I was pretty excited - but living in Northern Ireland it is incredibly difficult to get your hands on these kinds of products from higher end brands - so I decided to go on a hunt to try and find some lip products that could be a dupe for the Kylier Jenner Lip Kits and I think I have found them *squeals*

And they are the....... Max Factor Lipfinity Lip Colours
 I found three shades which I think are the perfect dupes for Kylie Jenners lip colours - they are a liquid lipstick which dries to a matte finish, but with the clear balm to put on top it adds a very nice sheen and makes them very moisturising an long lasting.They aren't drying and are very comfortable and for only £10.99 they are reasonably affordable from your local drugstore. The only "problem" I guess you could say is that you don't get a lot of product, I would say only 1/3 of the packaging is the product and the rest is the brush - and within each set you get a balm - I would have preferred to have had more product for the £10.99 and then been able to buy the balm seperately (which you can actually do) instead of paying £10.99 each time and getting another balm and hardly any product.

Valentines Day

Valentines Day is a day that I personally love - it's a day that you can spoil your loved one and show them just how much you love them and there's nothing better than that. 
My Valentines Day was quite relaxed and chilled, but on the 13th I decided to book me and the boyfriend away for a night and to also see Deadpool VIP style that night because I know how much he wanted to see it. But we also done some shopping in Belfast throughout the day to kill some time before we went to Nandos and the cinema so I figured I would show you what I picked up :)

Victoria Square in Belfast was beautiful as well, it has lovely Valentines Decorations up and some mucis playing in the background which was unusual but lovely

Lee also surprised me with some gifts which I was not expecting at all as he bought me a car back in January - I'm so lucky <3

I hope you all had an amazing and happy Valentines Day
