Macs Matchmaster Foundation Review

Hi everyone,

I know it's been a little over a week since I've posted, it's been rather hectic here at home! I'm going to be posting a review on Macs matchmaster foundation in no.4

This is my ultimate must have. I've never had a foundation as brilliant as this, I've tried studio fix, benefit, smashbox, rimmel, maybelline and more... This just gives the perfect coverage for day and is buildable for night too! The perfect start to your makeup collection!

I love the packaging! The sleek black box is minimalistic but goes great on any dressing table! I also love how the bottle itself has a pump that you can turn on and off! Hallelujah! Many times I've bought a foundation and accidentally squirted it everywhere - not anymore! The pump is extremely handy, I use about 4 pumps for a full face of makeup and maybe 2 for a natural day time look! It helps preserve your foundation and make it last longer!

This bottle usually lasts me around 2 months, which is a long time for someone who loves to apply it even when in the house  hehe :) I would definitely recommend going to a mac counter and getting them to match you up properly before buying the foundation though, as it can be a little pricey and you want it to be right! But it's worth it and I for one love it!

Let me know if you guys use this and what you think!

Loving Tan Ultra Dark Review

Hi everyone,

Today I wanted to post a review on loving tans ultra dark tanning mousse! 

Firstly I love the packaging! It's so posh and elegant and really looks beautiful on your dresser :) I ordered the mousse and the mitt as I like to use the same brand mitt as the tan - I just feel like the products work better :) the mousse is 120ml which at first I thought was only a small amount of product for £29 - I couldn't have been more wrong! The bottle lasts forever! I tan once a week and it lasted me 2 and a half months which is amazing for a bottle of tan - I know st tropez used to last me 1 and a half months and that was double the size! 

The mousse comes out very dark and scary looking but when it's applied to the skin it's the most natural golden brown colour! I used to care if the guide colour looked patchy but with this tan I slap it on, put my pjs on and go to bed without a care in the world - it always comes out even!  Below you can see the colour difference (though the picture doesn't seem to show the full depth of colour that you get). It is hands down the best tan I have ever used and naturally I am extremely pale! I don't tan my face as I suffer with dry skin so I use macs match master  foundation in number 4 to darken my face up on a daily basis!

I would recommend purchasing this tan no matter where in the world you are! They ship worldwide and the delivery isn't overpriced! It normally takes 1 and a half weeks to get to me from Australia and I live in the UK which is fabulous!

You can purchase it from

All about my nails

Hi everyone,

Todays blog post is all about my nails, how I've got them to the length they are and how I prefer to have them done.

Firstly, I always had acrylic nails with nail tips up until January this year when I realised I didn't like having something glued to my nail - so I thought I know I'll grow my nails! I started off having bio sculpture gel as an overlay on my natural nail and had them infilled every 2 weeks. As you can see from the picture below they weren't short but they weren't long (sorry about the quality it was taken on my phone)

Once my nails got a fair bit longer bio sculpture was too flexible and started breaking - along with my nails! This is when I decided to have acrylic overlays instead of gel - this allowed my nails to continually grow but have the protection that they need - and still look pretty.

I love having my nails done with different designs and colours and I love long square nails - I don't like the pointy ones that are in at the moment :( 

I can honestly say there is no quick fix for growing your nails - just patience! It's worth it so much for me and Ramona the lady who does them is fantastic at creating quirky designs! The picture below is my nails now at the perfect length for me - we based them on candy!
