MAC x Good Luck Trolls Make Up Collection

Hello blog-reading folks, it’s been a while and this little collection sneak peek is what caught my attention enough to blog. Many of you will know that historically I’m not a massive MAC fangirl normally and have generally been disappointed by some of their limited edition collection as it’s often just repackaged colours or so limited edition that it’s basically impossible to get hold of. The latest news is about a rather retro, nostalgic collaboration with Trolls, which looks pretty special.

Vans Late Night Junk Food Inspired Collection

I have got to admit it, I DID overreact quite a bit when I spotted this collection, but it’s SO me it’d be silly if I wasn’t excited, now just to find some spare cash to treat myself and decide which pieces are worthy for a place in my concise wardrobe. I used to always be a Converse girl but ever since buying my first pair of Vans, I’ve been totally converted and they’re now my main choice for footwear.

Here’s what my face looks like when it’s on a budget…

Ok, I admit it, I am a make up snob. I’m not talking a love for ONLY luxury brands, my love lies with those interesting, hidden gems of product ranges with professional quality and exciting stories behind them. I’m always going to prefer to spend my money on those brands, however, in the interest of being a good blogger, today I’m investigating some budget brands.

Barry M Aquarium Nail Polish Collection: Pacific, Mermaid and Arabian

Barry M continues to be one of my favourite brands ever, it’s affordable, easy to find and always brings a smile to your face. Yes, some of the make up products aren’t the best quality, but they are good value for money. However, their nail colour range always impresses, for me, it’s just as good as some of the luxury nail brands, but for a fraction of the price and they still have all the colours and finishes that you could wish for.

A range of  size new shades, four multi faceted metallic and two new chunky glitters inspired by the sea. Here’s a review of my favourite three, I’ll review the rest of the range in due course I would expect.

Arabian is a pale green base which reflects shades of gold and blue, Pacific is the reverse a pale blue which reflects green and gold. The Mermaid glitter is gorgeous, a chunky blend of green, blue and gold foil flecks. As with all Barry M colours, the application is easy and you can get a decent coverage in one coat, although out of habit I always do two coats anyway. The glitter is a bit more of a challenge to apply, I’d recommend dabbing it on for heavier coverage, rather than brushing it on and allow a bit longer for drying time.

Stunning collection, definitely check it out. I love the addition of the fancy lids too for their collections, this one is a creamy gold with mermaid scales, so cute! A simple but adorable addition to the product. Just love it!

Kiko Cosmetics Boulevard Rock Rock Idol Lipstick in Strawberry and Coral

Thought I ought to hurry up and write something else to be on the homepage, as everytime I was logging in and seeing the Honest Burgers review it was just making me ridiculously hungry and desperate for yet another burger. So, here’s my go to lipstick at the moment from Kiko Cosmetics’ Boulevard Rock collection, which is out now. They come boxed, in denim textured matte boxes with this rather snazzy tie dye, ombre effect going on, which adds a bit of luxe to a otherwise cheap product.

As I rambled about in my previous review of this collection, the range is inspired by British alternative music, which is a super random link, but nonetheless they’ve made some gorgeous products again. Today, I’m reviewing their Rock Idol Lipstick in Illusion Strawberry (aka red) and Rebel Coral (aka orange). The lipsticks are in a slimmer form  of the Clinique Chubby Sticks, which appear to have become a standard style of lip crayon now. I much prefer the slimmer shape of these pencils, they make it a lot easier to be precise with application, which is so important when applying such bold colours. kiko cosmetics rock idol lipstick boulevard rocks collection rebel coral and illusion strawberry review and swatch red and orange lipstick

Unlike the Clinique Chubby Sticks, the Kiko Rock Idol Lipsticks are in fact a matte colour, which I just adore. They have plenty of pigment in them, but without being super in your face, I’d describe them as toned down vintage shades, which are perfect for everyday wear. The matte formulas mean that they last really well, with a comfortable, creamy formula that glides on easily and precisely. At £7.90 they are also a complete bargain and there’s a really great line up of shades in the collection too. Really impressed with these little guys, would definitely buy other shades for myself.

Swatched here is the red, Illusion Strawberry and orange, Rebel Coral. Both are very easy to wear shades and would suit a wide range of skin tones and styles for day and night time wear.
