Makeup geek eye shadows!

Hi everyone! Today I wanted to talk to you all about my favorite shadows, they're the Makeup geek shadows! They're absolutely amazing, the most pigmented eye shadows I've ever used! They retail on the makeup geek website for $5.99 for the regular shadows and the foiled shadows for $9.99. Obviously you need to pay shipping for them too, when you buy single eye shadow pans its around 8.99$ if you live in the UK and 11.99$ for palettes, i'm unsure of US and any other shipping prices but im sure they'll be really affordable like they are for the UK.

The eye shadows themselves are SUPER pigmented and creamy. They blend really nicely without loosing any pigmentation too! There is a huge range of shadows to choose from, to start with I would purchase the beginner palette which comes with 9 gorgeous shades: Shimma Shimma, creme burle, Glamorous, coco bear, mocha, corrupt, unexpected, prom night and drama queen! Theyre all super wearable colours for all skin tones, they will literally suit everybody! I love every single on of these colours no joke, I cant even pick a favorite they're all so good!

As well as my Zpalette I purchased 5 more colours recently off the website because i loved them so much! These colours were:: Burlesque, taupe notch, moondust, vanilla bean and whimsical.

Whimsical is my only foiled shadow as they are the more expensive ones to buy but having said that i will definetely be buying more foiled because the pigmentation on these colours are just amazing!

MAC Lipstick collection

So for my first post in a while I wanted to do something exciting! I don't really have that many mac lipsticks and I couldn't actually find one of them which is annoying. All the lipsticks I do have though I absolutely love MAC lipsticks are my favorite lipsticks I have ever tried! So if you haven't tried one yet you should pick one up! £15 is a little bit pricey but they're so worth it! 

Angel is the first ever MAC lipstick I had! It was a Christmas present from one of my friends. As you can see its well worn! Its definitely great for a first mac lipstick as in my opinion it will suit most skin types and looks absolutely gorgeous on anyone! Angel is a frost lipstick. Its a pretty light pink colour, i'd say its one of those "your lips but better colours". As far as texture goes I find it really creamy and quite hydrating on my lips! I love it, Its my favorite one I've tried! Definitely pick up this one!

 Rebel is another much loved lipstick especially in the Autumn and Winter! Its a satin finish and comes out much lighter that it looks in the tube its like a dark fuchsia pink colour to be honest! I used to wear this all the time when I was in college but lately I've found putting a lipstick on a bit tricky and its kind of put me off my darker colours a bit. Having said that I still love this colour and think that its really unique and worth trying out!

Lady bug is a sheer but build-able light red colout, I believe its a luster finish. Its again quite hydrating on the lips. I wouldnt say its the best red if you wanted a really bright red lip then this isn't for you but if arent quite as confident and you want a sheer red lip then this lipstick is fab! I love wearing this when I go out and have to look put together, or even when i just want to have a bit of colour on my lips!

Up the Amp, where do I start with this one!? Its such a pretty colour! I love it! Its an amplified finish which means its really opaque! I cant really describe the colour its definitely purple though I've never seen anything like it before. I love wearing this with quite a basic eye look I think this colour really makes your lips pop! It glides on and it quite creamy, not as creamy as angel though and I find it quite east to apply!

 Diva is definetely one for the Autumn/Winter time, its a matte deep berry red and looks absolutely stunning, This lipstick on its own is quite drying and difficult to apply however use a lip balm underneath it and its so much nicer to apply! One thing I would say about this though is it washes me out a little bit so I have to apply a really light coat of it on my lips or wear fake tan other than that its a beautiful colour!

Creme cup is my most recent purchase. I bought this off a discount website my friend Ashleigh recommended to me for £12.99. This is a light nude pink colour, Its very creamy and glides on your lips effortlessly. I love this colour with neutral eye looks or everyday wear. I feel like with this colour because it is so creamy it will wear down really quickly. 

Brave is the lipstick that i couldn't find to put in this post I literally have no idea where I have put it i'm so annoyed at myself because this lipstick is gorgeous! I think its one that Kylie Jenner wears because it was so hard to get hold of, i'm not sure though so don't quote me on that! Anyway, this is a gorgeous pinky nude colour which again is amazing for everyday wear its on the darker side of the pinky nudes, it was just a perfect lipstick. I definitely recommend it!

I really do love mac lipsticks and even though my collection isnt the biggest its still growing so expect another one of these in the future!

The Christmas tag!

I'm so sorry for the lack of blog posts recently, I honestly have had no time at all and if you have been watching my vlogmas videos you will know that however I have some spare time in a lesson (oops) I haven't had any ideas either so I was scrolling through my blog feed and saw this tag so i decided to do it.

What time of year do you start your Christmas shopping?
I usually start Christmas shopping around October / November time, its hard for me because i don't get much money and there are loads and loads of birthdays around this time of year too.

Do you have any festive recipes for food or drink you limit solely to the Christmas season to share?
Honestly no, but I only usually find Terry's chocolate orange around Christmas time so its kind of limited to Christmas time.

Tell me how Christmas goes down in your home
So basically I like to sleep so my sister or my mum will probably come into my room and wake me up then we will go down stairs and I'm really really dysfunctional in the mornings before I have a cup of tea so I'll make one and sit down and drink it before doing anything. When everyone is together in the lounge we will give nad open presents. After the presents my mum usually goes into the kitchen and starts to prepare dinner, which sometimes I will help with. We then sit down for dinner and eat together. Then after that we all just sit watching Christmas films and maybe go up to my Aunt's house.

Do you have any Christmas traditions?
No not really.

Do you have a favorite festive coffee?My favorite  festive coffee hands down in Costa's gingerbread latte, i love it so much, i think its my favorite coffee of all time.

Do you have a favorite Christmas song?

My favorite Christmas song is "merry Christmas everybody" hands down favorite.

What do you do on Christmas Eve?
We don't really do much on Christmas eve, honestly its just like a normal day, usually a lazy day watching films but there is nothing in particular.

What's your Christmas wrapping strategy? Do you have a strategy?
I really hate wrapping presents I'm so bad at it, I usually leave it all until the day before and then just wrap it however..

What's your dream gift this year?
My dream gift this year was a BMX then instead my mum offered me a camera and also my black vans because I have wanted them for sooooooooooooo long!

Describe your Christmas tree. How tall? Real or artificial? How is it decorated?
My Christmas tree is artificial, i would love to have a real one, maybe when i have my own house. In my opinion its a bit cluttered but I feel like that's just because of the tinsel. We have lots of different kinds of baubles on our tree and the colour scheme is red and gold.

Do you decorate just the tree or other areas of your house e.g. windows, banisters?
We decorate the whole of downstairs, there are lights and the banisters and fireplace have decorations on, there are lights on the windows too. We don't decorate outside though because one year we did and some of the decorations got stolen.

What do you wear to Christmas parties and what do you wear on Christmas day?
I usually dress up for Christmas day or just wear clothes which I have received as gifts. I don't really go to any Christmas parties either so i don't really have an answer for that.
