Top 5 Blushes of All Time, All Drugstore :)

001. My favourite blushes have to be the natural collection blushes. Pigmented, creamy, matte, and most of all so cheap you can afford to have them all. This one is sweet cheeks, not sure if they do this anymore but they have great colours, and at a mere £1.99 you can afford to catch 'em all ;)

002. I really do like the bourjois little round pot blushers, although they are maybe not as pigmented as I like. However I still love them because of the gorge smell, amazing colour collection, subtle shimmer which has a lovely glowy look on the cheeks, and the cute little brush that comes inside! This is the colour brun cuivre.

003. Topshop cream blushers. These are amazing, a lovely cream to powder finish with a dewey glow, very pigmented, easy to blend, and long lasting. Love these so much, great for £6. This is the colour "flush".

004. Sleek blushes. Love these blushes, not much of a colour range but the colours they do have are gorgeous. Look out for their limited edition blushes, they are always amazing. Love the packaging too, and these have got to be some of the most pigmented blushes. Definitely reccomend these. This one was from a limited edition collection and is called "pan tao". Definitely not a subtle colour, but applied lightly goes into a gorgeous peachy shade.

005. This is a blush that I find myself reaching for a lot, and was a complete impulse buy in Tesco. Its by Vivo and is called peaches and cream, its a shimmery baked blush. I think shimmery blushes get bad press, but I think used in the right way, they can make your skin look fresh, dewey and glowing. This is pigmented, easy to blend and a lovely colour. Definitely recommend it if you see it in Tesco :)

Thanks for reading guys, whilst I have time, I am going to put up another couple of blog posts tonight, so make sure you read those too and comment and chat to me :)

Some sad news, but I am back for good!

I just want to explain why I have been absent from my blog for the last month, I have had a pretty horrible couple of months as one of my beautiful friends passed away over christmas aged just 18.
She died from sudden adult death syndrome, and had no symptoms, one night she simply collapsed in a drive and didn't wake up again.
Its a horrible feeling losing a friend so young, something that has impacted me far more than I ever thought it would. I cry everyday, and I can't look at pictures of her, look at her facebook or even hear her name without welling up.
I know I'll be ok, its only been a month so I can't expect to feel great just yet, I just find instead of getting easier, I am noticing the void that it left behind more and more.
R.I.P my darling, as a Christian I have hope in knowing you are up their in the arms of God, and knowing that you will never have to go through many of the pains people experience in this life, instead you are in eternal happiness, never to feel sadness again.
She was possibly one of the most amazing people you could have ever met, truly kind, loving, warm, welcoming, funny, outspoken, unique, and beautiful. And I mean that from the bottom of my heart, no one ever had a bad word to say about her, and she never had a bad one to say about anybody else.
One thing I would say if you ever have the misfortune of going through this, DON'T DO WHAT I DID. I withdrew, I wouldn't tell anyone about what happened, I just kept it quiet and carried on like everything was normal. But it wasn't, and after about a week it started to get lonely, by this point, I felt like only a few people cared about me, most of which were far far away at university, and I was on my own apart from a couple of people from my class and my Mum. When I needed support most I didn't have any, because I gave the impression that everything was just hunky dory!
So yeah, if you do have to go through something similar, or even something like a break up or something, please open up to your friends, it may be tempting to go into your little shell, but it won't work trust me. You need to cry, and open up, and have cuddles from friends, its all part of it.

Anyway sorry that this is such a depressing post, just thought it may help some people going through hard times, and of course I wanted to pay tribute to my beautiful friend.
I hope you are all well, and I am always here to chat, just comment!
Love you all and will be putting up a normal post next!
Have a great week and happy February!
