The shade Queen B is a beautiful cool toned lilac pink shade, it is quite similar to the ABH Trouble liquid lipstick but slightly darker.

The formula is brilliant it lasts long and dries to a matte finish although I do find it doesn’t last quite as long as some others and as with any liquid lipstick you will need to exfoliate and fully moisturise your lips before applying. This shade does break up slightly easier with eating and drinking but can easily be re-applied.

This is great for everyday wear with simple makeup or also goes great with a dramatic smokey eye.


Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette – The Vintage Vamp

As you can see I am building quite the collection of luxury palettes from CT! They are absolutely amazing and brilliant for travelling and one palette can take you easily from day to night time looks.

The Vintage Vamp palette is my second favourite Charlotte Tilbury palette… nothing will ever overtake The Dolce Vita for me!

The Vintage Vamp palette is brilliant for a warm burgundy smokey eye and follows jthe typical Prime, Enhance, Smoke and Pop steps of the Luxury Palettes.

The Prime shade is a shimmery light gold shade with a slight rose undertone. The Enhance shade is a gorgeous satin burgundy that is so smooth and easy to blend, followed by the Smoke shade which is a darker burgundy shade which helps to really intensify the look. This is followed finally by the Pop shade which is a gorgeous gold glitter that really finishes off the look.


This palette is gorgeous for all skin tones and eye colours and looks stunning for anytime of day. I personally like to finish off this look with a neutral blush shade, if I am going for a day time look I would typically pair this with Bond Girl lipstick or for a more dramatic look I would go for the Walk of Shame lipstick.

This palette is available from Charlotte’s website and a variety of other retailers.

Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette – The Glamour Muse

As most of you know by now I absolutely love Charlotte Tilbury products and one of my favourite products are the Luxury Palettes. There’s so many different looks to create and the palettes are super easy to use.

Charlotte has designed these palettes so that when they are used clockwise they will take you from desk to dusk to disco! It’s such a great concept that makes the palettes so versatile and easy to use.

The Glamour Muse look was inspired by icons of the seventies such as Jerry Hall, Marie Helvin and Bianca Jagger. The palette contains a mixture of silver, grey and violet shades that suit all skin tones.

The prime shade is a stunning ivory shade with hints of rose pink, followed by the enhance shade a pearly rose pink shade. The smoke shade in this palette is a stunning cool grey shade followed by the bright purple pop shade.

This palette looks amazing on for any occasion. I wore this recently for a concert and to make the look even more stunning I used Charlotte’s Colour Chameleon in Amythest Aphrodisiac underneath and it looked amazing!

This looks goes particularly well with those of us blessed with green eyes but would suit all others too.

The palette is available from Charlotte’s website and a variety of other retailers.


Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick Set

After discovering my new love for liquid lipsticks and stepping out of my comfort zone with lipstick colours I decided to get this set of mini liquid lipsticks from ABH seen as I already knew I loved their formula. This was a Holiday edition set but it is still available on their website.

The formula dries to a matte finish but is not too drying on the lips and lasts a solid 8 hours through eating and drinking.

The three piece set contains a mixture of shades first up we have the shade ‘Hudson’ a neutral deep peach shade that would compliment a variety of skin tones and looks perfect for a everyday look or with a dark smokey eye for a more dramatic look. This shade is the closest to my comfort zone out of three although I usually go for a more pink neutral shade.

Next up is ‘Bittersweet’ a chocolate brown shade which is completely out of my comfort zone but I completely love it! As the colour is so dramatic I prefer to wear it with a neutral shadow, light liner and a neutral blush.

The last shade in the trio is Dazed a stunning brick red shade that makes every look a little more glam, I especially like this shade when I don’t have a lot of time to get ready as I always find a red lip makes your makeup look more intense without having to spend so much time doing shadow.

Overall this is a great option if you are looking to try out liquid lipsticks and some new shades. This is available from the ABH website.


StylPro Review

I can’t get over how much I love this for cleaning my brushes as it has made this task so much quicker and easier for me and I would highly recommend this to anyone who feels like they spend forever washing their brushes!

The way the StylPro works is you fill the bowl about 1/3 full with warm water and brush cleanser, pick out the brush handle adaptor that fits the brush you will be washing, then attach this to the handle. You should turn the handle on to start the spinning, keep the brush spinning while submerged in the water for about 10-15 seconds then lift the brush head up so it is still in the bowl but out of the water and start spinning again to dry the brush, which will then be dry and ready to use straight away.

I find this works great with synthetic brushes but can be more tricky with natural hair brushes as when you dry them on such a high speed the hair does not go back to the original shape. With the natural hair ones I now wash them in the StylPro but instead of drying I just squeeze out excess water and leave to dry naturally.

This is also great for makeup artists who need to clean and have their brushes ready to use straight away and also for those of you who like to clean your brushes more than once a week, this makes the process so much quicker!


I did used to have the cheaper version from Amazon which I thought was okay until I got the real thing and realised how much better this is.

The StylPro is quite pricey at £40-50 but is completely worth it as it saves so much time and makes washing your brushes so much easier.

Current Skincare Routine

Hey everyone, I feel like I haven’t been on this for so long because I had so many posts scheduled which have now ran out.

One of the girls at my work had suggested I make a post about my updated skincare routine seen as it has changed so much recently.


Every morning I like to quickly cleanse my skin using a makeup remover cloth from Primark which is so magic you just run it under warm water and it removes your makeup! Perfect for us lazy girls!! I like to use this in the morning to remove any residue from
my moisturiser the night before. I then apply Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream as a moisturiser which I love for before makeup as it does’t sit on the skin or leave a residue and soaks in very quickly.


On a weeknight I remove my makeup either with Garnier Micellar water or the makeup remover cloth mentioned previously and follow this up with St Ives apricot exfoliating scrub as I find this is very gentle on my skin, I have tried a lot of exfoliaters but
I always end up going back to this one. I then apply Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate which is what has made such a difference to my skin over the past few months, my skin feels much smoother and even since I started using this. Depending on how dry my
skin is feeling that night (usually like a desert!) I will either use Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream again if my skin doesn’t feel to dry or I will use Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream if my skin needs some TLC.


I usually save any face masks and extra skincare to the weekend so on a Friday night I usually apply a clearing face mask either the L’Oreal Charcoal face mask or GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment. I then follow up with the Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate
and Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream or the GlamGlow Thirsty Mud Treatment.

I have found this new routine has helped clear my skin up a lot and help to stop any dry patches that I have been experiencing more recently.

Kylie Cosmetics Kristen Review

So I finally got round to reviewing this, last year I ordered from Kylie Cosmetics online, I ordered Kristen lip kit, Golden Plum Cream eyeshadow and the burgundy palette.

2018-01-07 01.59.33

When the lip kit arrived, I was slightly surprised with how dark it was as from pictures I seen online it looked more like a dark nude pink but it is more of a pink red colour. I still love the colour but I do love my nude lipsticks for everyday wear but that has not stopped me wearing this shade everyday since I got it!

There is no doubt that the liquid lipsticks are very drying from the matte finish (probably the icy cold weather in Scotland doesn’t help either!) and lips will need to be fully primed before applying this, I use Lush lip scrub and Carmex or Charlotte Tilbury lip balm both the night before and just before applying.

I put this lipstick to the test when I wore it to work, I started at 8am so had applied the lipstick at about 7am, the lipstick lasted through my numerous cups of coffee, eating breakfast, lunch and did not budge at all! By around 3pm I had to apply some lipgloss as my lips felt too dry by this point but I normally apply lip balm a lot throughout the day. Even after applying the lipgloss the lipstick still looked amazing and lasted the rest of the day! Infact I still had to scrub it off at the end of the night!

2018-01-07 02.01.05

As this lipstick is quite dark I have been using a lighter nude lip liner underneath  for day time and the matching lip liner when I want a darker lip look. I love the lip liner that comes in the set it is a gorgeous creamy formula.

I absolutely love this purchase and I am so glad I finally bought some products from Kylie Cosmetics, I will be posting about the burgandy palette shortly. If you would like me to post about ordering from Kylie Cosmetics to the UK let me know in the comments!
