SHIT, I've hit pan!

Hello there! It's been a while...
I'm slacking, I know! I promise to post more soon!!! I've got a week off work and no plans, so I'll make sure to post more then!!

I've been trying my hardest not to buy ANY makeup untill I go on holiday at the end of the month (going to Florida - will buy SO much when I'm away!)
So, I'm using up a lot of my products, and It's killing me, not being able to buy more!! I love pretty much every product in this post...

Look at the empty pans.... I want to cry a little.

E.L.F Complexion Perfection: I think this is pretty much a love or hate product. I HATE dewy looking skin, just can't deal with it. So once I've applied my foundation this little beaut goes on straight away! With all the colours mixed it can make you look pale... however, I'm pale anyway so it's not noticeable! It has a lovely matte finish and evens out any redness on my cheeks leaving my skin looking so perfect!

My No7 Blush in Soft Damson has been my go to blush since the beginning of time! You can build the colour up for something dramatic but a quick pat on your cheeks will leave you with a beautiful natural flush. I like to wear a lot of colour on my eyes so I tend to always choose this blush as otherwise, it will be colour overload! I'm not even sure if you can still get this colour... I might actually cry if I can't purchase another!!!

17 Photo Flawless Skin Primer was the first primer I ever bought! I used it for a while and then went over to E.L.F's mineral primer (not fantastic...) and after finishing that, converted back to this one! Neither of them in my eyes are fantastic but photo flawless is definitely better! It has a little colour but nothing that's going to make a huge difference to your face. The E.L.F primer was clear whereas this one is kind of white... I need to search for a new primer! Any ideas?

Well hello there love of my life Line Definer Liquid Eyeliner by Maybelline, how ya doin? Without this pen my life has no meaning. As much as I love gel eyeliner, It's a pain in the ass when you're in a rush! And I don't actually own a plain black liquid liner. Brushes annoy me. This little pen is a gem! I would seriously be lost without it! It's so easy to use and get the perfect wing! Also if you're going for a cat eye, THIS is what you need. You can get such great lines with it!!! I may buy 5 more... never want to run out! I've used many pen liners and this is by far my favourite!

I religiously used Urban Decay Primer Potion for years until I bought E.L.F's Eyelid Primer and realised how shockingly bad UDPP is! It's true. I could probably buy 14 of these for the same price as one UDPP, and it's soo much better! I use this everyday when I wear eyeshadow and can't imagine life without it... however I'm almost at the end! D': I need to stay strong... wait for America and buy more there!!!

OK this product I know ever little about, apart from it was made by Gods to make your hair feel as soft as an angels feathers.
It's Authentic Cleansing Nectar by Devines and it's for your hair/body and smells like heaven. Very citrusy and fresh! I received it in my glossy box last month and adore it! So upset that i've used it all though! Will have to track it down and buy more! (If it's not a ridiculous price...I'm skint.)

Last but not least is my Barry M nail paint in Mint Green. It might look full in the picture but it's definitely not. Only just goes up to the Barry M sign! I bought this last year with about 5 other bright Barry M colours to do some nail marbling with and as awesome as they come out, It takes up a lot of product! I'm seriously in love with this colour and will definitely be purchasing another pastel green to replace it. I desperately want to try OPI's Mermaid's Tears from the POTC collection!

So there's the round up of my misery. I'm coming to an end of most of my favourite products! However, by the end of the month I'm going to be in Florida buying so much makeup it's going to be insane. I can't wait!!!

Love & Peace x


  1. Great post! I use 17 Photo Flawwless but would recommend Laura Mercier primers and Smashbox Photo Finish is brilliant too. I'm tempted to try the Maybelline liner now you've recommended it x

  2. Hitting the pan always sucks I'm also trying my best not to buy any makeup but it's not going that well! lol

  3. I brought the maybeline eyeliner once and I didn't find it great, I wish I did though mine was all sort of dried up and UN-usable but I've also purchased the ELF one and that was the same, maybe its just me! LOL!
