Sorry for a few being a bit on the pricey side...I have included some near perfect dupes! (In particular Loreal's version of Mac's up the amp...perfecto!)...These are my summer lip picks, I can't say I'm one that only wears certain colours in summer, each to their own, if you wanna rock a vampy red this summer...knock yourself out girl!! 

Recenetly I find myself reaching for these colours over anything else, I'm loving pairing a statement lip at the moment with a nice dewy base, basic, subtle brown cut crease, winged liner and lashes! Mac's vegas volt is my most recent lipstick discovery and oh boy I love it! I've been wearing it everyday for about a week now and I just love how it pulls a lazy winged liner and lashes together and polishes it all off! 

And one little word for the lip butters...if you haven't tried them already, go go go! 

Hope you're all really well and staying lovely. Let me know what you're wearing on your lips! xxx

I'm currently using Mac Studio Fix Fluid as my foundation which I LOVE, however on the Mac website I was matched to Studio Sculpt as my 'perfect' foundation...which to me, is a perfectly rational excuse to want it right? On my post recent mac order (post to follow!) I was given a sample of the prep+prim skin base, and I love love love it!

I've been wanting to try the studio fix powder for yonks now, I've always been a fan of Rimmel stay matte, but the actual product never seems to last me that long, so I might have to give this a go first! 

Now for blushers, I'm a huge fan of both the benefit box blushers and Sleek blushers, Pixie Pink actually looks really similar to Benefit's bella bamba to me, so I think I'm going to give the Sleek blushers a try first and see if it looks as soon on my face as it does in the pan; especially since the Benefit blushers are £23 a pop!...Does this call for  a dupes post if all goes well?! I think Sleek has to be one of my favourite drugstore makeup brands, their blushers are defiantly one of my favourites, and the quality of them far out weights how little you pay for them, such good value for money!

Whats on your recent makeup wish list, I'd love for you to let me know down below!
Hope you're all feeling lovely,

I can't believe I haven't blogged in SO long...there is only one thing that is to blame though.. A-levels!!

Darn A-levels, alongside my part time job have just taken over my life. Thankfully yesterday, I had my A2 art exam, which means no more coursework EVER! Hopefully now all that is out of the way, I only have to revise for my other exams that start in June, so I'm positive blogging on here will be a thing for me again!
After A-levels I'm planning on going to a local college to study media and SFX makeup, so I'm sure after summer I'll have some more exciting things to blog about;  so please don't mistake my absence as a lack in interest, merely a shift of priorities! 

Thank you for those who have stuck with me on this one, let the queue of posts commence!
Hope you're all okay and staying fabulous!
