Hello my beauties, welcome back. It's been a while since I've done one of my sit down lets catch up posts. So I'd like to start off by saying sorry for disappearing, from both the blogosphere and youtube. I truly can explain, and as boring and silly as it sounds I've just found it super difficult to do both things. Blogging - but more YouTube requires a lot of time, and not to mention confidence. Recently I've just found it harder than usual to just sit down and film, my mind goes blank and it makes me so angry when things don't go the way I'd like them to go. I have been attempting almost everyday to film, so can you imagine putting make up on everyday and trying to film but it going terribly wrong? I had such a emotional moment the other day, I called my boyfriend and just burst into tears about it all, but as per usual he was supportive and told me to go with my heart, film when I feel comfortable and not to force it.
(p.s thank you for listening to me be a monster on the phone lol 

I'm trying to get back into the hang of things. I think I put myself under pressure majority of the time, as the year comes to an end I am nearing 5000 subscribers on my channel and I am SO excited but I can't help but feel scared too. I love doing what I do, but sometimes not filming = some subscribers getting a tad too personal and basically being horrible. I YouTube and Blog because I thoroughly enjoy doing so, its a hobby not a job. Not saying that having it as a job is a bad thing, but at the moment for me I have other priorities and I'd just like to slowly get back on track, for me at the moment there is no rush. I hope this makes sense and you all understand, but slowly but surely I will be back to the usual uploading. Love you all!

As the festive season approaches us so do the amazing limited edition gift sets! Stila released their 2015 Holiday collection and I must say I am impressed - they have some pretty decent palettes that are going for £30 or some even less that look amazing and super pigmented. I was gifted this set which is called the 'Eternal Love' Liquid Lipstick Set which comes with 3 timeless shades - a red, pink & brown/purple.



 The red shade is called 'Beso' as you all know, I don't suit reds very well but I will make this work. I usually mix my lipsticks around so once I start playing around with it I will create a shade that suits me better. I wish this shade suited me because it looks gorgeous on my friends!

The pink which is called 'Bacci' reminds me a lot like LA Splash 'Ghoulish' (reviewed here) but it is more on the pink side, again because of personal preference this shade is gorgeous BUT it washes me out a little.. on the bright side because due to the fact that these liquid lipsticks are super creamy in texture it is so easy to apply a lipliner on top without getting dry and flakey, so I will be mixing and matching which is one of my favourite things to do haha. #noshame


The last one which is my absolute favourite and I haven't been able to take it off is called 'Ricco' this beautiful shade is definitely more of a daring one but I've overcome the fear of wearing darker shades - now I love them! This looks different on everyone, when looking online sometimes it looks more brown but personally on myself it is a deep purple, with a pinch of brown in it somewhere. I'm actually in awe with how amazing these liquid lipsticks feel on my lips, the texture is super creamy and comfortable to wear day to day. Not to mention the longevity, I ate through NANDOS wearing the darkest shade and my lipstick was intact. Now that is a true long lasting liquid lipstick.


They all are 1ml which yes is a little, but trust me a little definitely goes a long way. I don't see myself using up these products anytime soon as they are so pigmented I can get a lot of use out of them. Being mini's also means they are travel friendly, pop them into your clutch and your good to go. £18 for 3 lipsticks, you can't go wrong. They also have another set which is called 'Eternally yours' which comes with 6 whopping lipsticks for only £29!
