Maybelline Master Sculpt Review.

Hi guys! Happy Friday to you all, today I have a very cool product to review for you guys, and that is the Maybelline Master Sculpt Contour and Highlight Kit. It retails for only £6.99 here and is available in two shades.
The idea of it is that you have contouring made easy with the contour, a highlight, a mirror and a brush all in one kit which I personally think is genius, especially at that price!
 Personally I love the packaging its so clean and simple they've really nailed it on the head it terms of that with this product. I also love how they engraved into the product SCULPT and HIGHLIGHT which I think is a great touch to help the contouring newbies out there!
 The pan is seperated into two, personally I would of preferred a 50/50 of each but I know many women like to contour more over highlight so I understand why this was done. Below the pan is a flip up mirror and the brush!
The mirror is a great size and the brush believe it or not is fantastic! I think this will be perfect for all the general women who don't have a massive brush collection, this is a really great brush one of the best in product brushes I've seen at the drugstore. I love the shape its perfect for both contour and highlight and it all fits so nicely in the kit.
I cannot fault the formula of these products, I am super picky with my contours but this one is really ashy not at all orange which is perfect for the fairer skins like my own. It creates the perfect shadow. The highlight is also gorgeous it's not thick chunky glitter its really fine and pearly, gives a beautiful glow.

SO all in all I love this product I would highly recommend this to all you ladies out there who are in need of a simple continuing kit. This is one of my favourite new releases and I think this will be a cult favourite for a lot of people!


Any questions, feel free to ask. See you all very soon! Goodbye!!:) xx

Revolution Iconic Pro 1 Palette Review.

Hi guys! Today I have a cool post for you guys, I will be reviewing a product I've had in my stash for quite some time now and it's from a relatively new brand it hit Superdrug stores last year called Revolution. The product I will be reviewing is their Iconic Pro palette which retails for £6.99 which is actually one of their pricier items (shock horror I know!). Buy the Iconic Pro Palette 1 here.

The Palette comes in matte black packaging which makes it quite susceptible to finger prints I warn but besides that I really love it, it's slick its simple and it works. It also has a MASSIVE mirror in it which is also a huge bonus for me so thumbs up there! 

As you can see there are 18 shadows alltogether in the palette, ranging from shimmer to mattes, nudes to vampy shades a real mixture! Many people say this is a dupe for the infamous lorac pro palette which is a cult classic, I personally find the shades extremely similar. Pigmentation wise there are some really strong pigments for example the shimmer seem to be better and much more buttery over chalky. I wasn't too impressed with a couple of the shades but then other ones really wowed me so all in all I think it's pretty much the same in every palette it doesn't stop me from loving it.

Personally my favourite shades include the buttery dark chocolate brown at the top right and the browns next to it are also great crease colours.

ALL in all I love this palette a lot, if you want to try anything from this brand this would be the one I would vouch for it's great for travelling or for daily inexpensive makeup.


That is it for today guys! Hope you enjoyed the post and I shall see you all very soon, bye!:-)xx

Sleek Highlighter in Precious Metals Review.

Hey guys! Today I am going to be reviewing a relatively new product and that is the Sleek Makeup Highlighter palette in Precious Metals. This retails for £10 at Superdrug and contains four highlighters three cream one powder. BUY HERE.
The palette also comes with a brush which I have tried but didn't fall in love with, I personally found these products worked best with fingers.
 The first shade is a frosty white colour, which I find great under the brow bone. The second is a dark gold shimmery cream which is beautiful all over the lids, the glitter in this particular one is quite chunky. The third shade is very similar to the second but much thinner in consistency and lacking in the chunky glitter, this is great for the cheekbones or done the bridge of the nose. The final shade is a bronzy brown which is fantastic for an all over bronze. With no annoying orangey tones it looks great even on fair skin.

And there we have it! I hope you have enjoyed this post, if you have any questions feel free to comment below, and I shall see you all very soon!:)xx

Lottie London Soap Star Solid Brush Cleanser Review!

Hey guys! Today I have another drugstore treat for you and it comes from a brand sold at Superdrug called Lottie London. It was launched last year and since its release they have been bringing out a selection of cheeky wonders at brilliant drugstore prices. Today I am sharing with you a new arrival and its the Soap Star solid brush cleanser. If you have heard of the famous beauty blender solid cleanser which has taken the beauty world by storm then you'll see that this is a very similar concept!

This product retails for £6.99 at Superdrug here.

So the box is packaged beautifully love that its covered in social media and hashtags feels really current. The product itself is in a plastic white tub which is a screw lid which I like... about the size of my palm. The following is stated on the packaging "The brush friendly coconut oil and shea butter infused formula deeply cleanses brushes, removing excess residue and build up for a cleaner makeup application".

As for the brush cleaning process I cannot fault it! Really easy process just swirl the brush around and then rinse with my hand under a tap. Flawless cleaning, much much faster and my brushes feel much more moisturised.

The soap and plastic did get filthy with product though but as it was plastic it rinsed of no problem as did the soap. Below is a photo after the product was rinsed as you can see it looks as good as new.

And there we have it! All in all I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants a cheap quick fix when cleaning their brushes. Buy this product for £6.99 here. Hope you guys enjoyed this and I'll see you very soon! Love Annie :-) xx

Loreal Paris Infallible Fixing Mist Review. | NEW AT THE DRUGSTORE.

Hey guys! Today I'm going to show you this awesome new product you can get at your local drugstore and its this L'OREAL INFALLIBLE FIXING MIST for £7.99 here. For that price you get a 100ml spray bottle which you spray onto your face of makeup and it claims to fix it in place and extend its wear.

 One thing I like about the packaging is how simple it is, and how its slightly see through so you can see how much product you have left, many fixing sprays have very opaque bottles and that very annoys me so for me this is a great plus!
 I like how the back displays all the instructions needed so you know exactly how to use it. I also love how it fits in the hand really nice. The spray bottle itself is easy to use, I wouldn't recommend pushing the sprayer all the way down or a big pump of liquid will squirt out, I've found that half pumps give the best mist-like effect for me.
 The product itself is completely clear if applied properly, I found if I sprayed too close a milky white resedue would be left all over the face so BEWARE! DO NOT spray it too close or directly onto clothes or it will leave a chalky white residue which is really hard to get off without ruining your makeup.
 The product dries SO quickly I was really impressed and I found the whole application process quite refreshing on the skin. It leaves your skin feeling SO SMOOTH, and also left my skin looking almost airbrushed. It didn't settle anywhere and it didn't dry really hard on my face.
ALL in all I LOVE this product. I can't go a day without it now! My make-up lasts ALL day even in bad weather and it looks flawless and smooth all day. Easy application once you get used to it and nifty bottle. Highly recommend! 

Buy the L'oreal fixing mist here.

See you guys next week with another post! Love Annie :-) xx

Manicure of the week!

Hey guys! Today I'm going to share with you what's on my nails today!! I fancied something cool toned and metallic and I came up with this!
Maybelline Super Stay 7 Forever Strong Nail Polish in Crystal Clear £4.49 here.
Maybelline Super Stay 7 Forever Strong Nail Polish in White £4.49 here.
Ciate Mini in Fit for a Queen, full size £9.00 here.
First thing I did was apply the clear coat as a base I LOVE this product so cheap and cheerful, I find it#s a better base than top coat. THEN I applied only two coats of the white onto all nails except my ring finger. I applied two coats of the Ciate mini and painted 90% of the index finger leaving a bit of a white rim, this style is really in fashion at the moment! I then applied the clear on top again and there we have it! The finished product!

New at the drugstore: Maybelline Color Tattoo Creamy Mattes!

Hi guys! Another exciting post today and that is something NEW in the drugstore/highstreet! Yaay! I love it when new things come into Superdrug I just have to try them! Here are two colour tattoos from Maybelline's new CREAMY MATTES range, I'll link the whole range here.
I LOVE the colour/color tattoo range at Maybelline it's been around for a while and they just keep adding and switching the colour, but keeping the amazing long lasting formula. They make an amazing eye base or as a single eyeshadow.
The two shades I am going to show to you today are:

Creme de Rose 91 £4.99 here
and Creme de Nude 93 £4.99 here

Both products are SO creamy as promised, and although their not the most vibrant of colours, that's what makes them the perfect bases for every day eye makeup. Don't expect big bold bright eyeshadow with these, pick one of the other colour tattoos, but they are the PERFECT fleshy tones for your neutral eyes, or just to even out your base.

 As you can see both are so similar but so different! After trying both out I can happily say that these definitely extend my eyshadow wear to all day. They even out the lids and stop things from melting off or creasing, all in all a highly recommended product!
Hope you guys enjoyed this post! Any questions do comment below, and I shall see you all very soon! Love Annie:) xx

Zoella Awesome Drawersome Review

Hi guyyys! Today I am going to show you something reaaallly exciting and that is my Zoella Beauty Drawers! They came out with her second line of her original range at Superdrug and they have been deemed very popular! There's nothing quite like it out on the high street today and so it's really cool to have something different and unique. You can pick up the drawers at Superdrug, for some reason I can't seem to spot them online any more?? But I have seen some in store so I highly recommend you get your hands on it while you can! You can however grab a couple of the items included in the drawers singularly in stores too and I'll link them along with their photos below.


SO here is the box!

The box itself is HUGE really good size, comes with a cardboard band around it and plastic to cover the shelves. I love the packaging and how its all designed so pretty and girly. Each drawer is opened by pulling on the ribbons attached.
Once you take the cardboard off the box looks like this...
Each drawer is opened individually and is full of amazing goodies! These are the contents:

 In here we have a beautiful flower lilly which is great to use with shower gel to really scrub at the skin... and this make-up purse which is the perfect size for your handbag!
Neither of these products can be purchased individually, you can buy a Zoella Beauty shower lilly from feelunique for £3 here but it has a slightly different design.


 Here we have a smaller 100ml bottle of the infamous Creamy Madly Dreamy (£5.00) which is already sold separately but in a 160ml bottle. I love the packaging and I also love the texture of this moisturiser, its very light and has the nicest fragrance. This is great if you want to just slap something on and the squeezy tube makes it easier.

Here we have something really cool and new and that is her Butter Me Up Body butter and its 100ml. This is a completely new product from Zoe and the pot for it is beautiful! You get a lot of product and the butter itself smells wonderful! Its thick and creamy but doest irritate the skin, this would be fantastic for when you want to pamper your skin or when your body feels a little dry in these winter months. You cannot currently buy this product separately.

This last drawer is chocker block full of goodies including an 100ml shower gel called Flowers and Showers. It lathers up so well and makes you feel so fresh and lovely. The next item is a bath soak & shower cream, also 100ml which is called Soak Opera! You can actually purchase this but not in a tube its in a big 490ml bottle for £5.00 which I think is incredible value fore money, so if you did like this small travel size then you could always go out and repurchase the bottle. It can be applied straight to the skin or poured under warm running water to soften the skin and leave you smelling all fragrant! The last two products are so exciting because they are fizz bars! You can actually get two uses out of each or you could drop the whole thing in for an extra fizzy experience! I've heard amazing things about these I can't wait to try them.

SO there are the really cool bits inside the Zoella Awesome Drawersome! I really hope you enjoyed it feel free to ask any questions below! Remember you can check out the Zoella collection instore at Superdrug or online here. See you soon! Love Annie :) xx
