Confession of a Beautiholic

Name: Maybelline Superstay 14Hr Lipstick
Type: Non-stop Red 510
Price: £6.99
Description: MEET THE 14HR LIPSTICK THAT WON'T WEIGH YOU DOWN. NO FADING. NO DRAGGING. NO LETDOWNS. Super rich colour and super staying power with our exclusive weightless formula!
 I wanted a red lipstick but not to dark red so I went for this red/pink lipstick. I got this in superdrug since it was buy one get one half price.


After 9 hours:  

- Long lasting 
- Decent price
- Nice scent
- many colours to choose from
- gives a glossy shiny finish to the lips

- The colour isn't as strong at the start

My thoughts:
 I have got to say that I am really impressed with this lipstick! I don't really like Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick since it gets really dry and it smells disgusting. I like the popstick but it doesn't have much colour and it isn't long lasting but this lipstick is perfect. It is long lasting although the colour isn't as strong at the start but you can still see the stain. The lipstick also smells really nice as well. It smells of like sweets or cherry and it also doesn't feel dry on my lip (but it isn't moisturing lipstick). I was eating and drinking and the colour still stayed on my lips. The photo doesn't really do the lipstick justice since you probably can't see the colour (and gosh I look white in the before photos) but the colour is very nice and you can see the glossy finish to it.

Rating: 10/10 - I am definitely going to buy this lipstick again.

My face has been breaking out lately. I don't know if it's because I am stress or what it is that is making me breakout. I know it is not the make-up since I haven't been wearing make-up for a month and I don't put foundation or bb cream when I do put on make-up. It's probably because I haven't been continuously doing my cleansing routine as well. I have started to pick it up again by cleansing my face twice a day. I have also started eating healthy as well. I think I will do a 3 weeks challenge and post my results on the 30 June to see if there is any difference.

I will do a before and after picture when my challenge is completed.

The products that I will try and use are mainly freederm:

- Freederm Facial Cleanser
- Oxy on the Spot
- Laneige Pore Trouble Toner
- Freederm Oil-free Perfecting Moisturiser
- Freederm Overnight Clearing Serum
- Freederm Exfoliating daily wash (weekly)
- Eygptician Healing Clay (fortnight)

I hope I don't get lazy and give up on this.

Product Name: Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer
Type: #3 Transparent
Price: £9 - £10
Size: 24g
Where to buy: Ebay
Makeup Multi-Cream promotes skin radiance and glow with plumped up moisture.

Mix Volume at 1:3 ratio with BB Cream. Use BB/Foundation brush to gather and apply mixture evenly to face. Also applicable as glow highlighter: dispense Volumer onto middle finger and use fingers to mix and apply glow to forehead, cheekbones and nose bridge.

I have hardly been applying make-up for the past few months. I think I went through a stage where I just didn't want to apply on make-up, so therefore this blog has been pretty quiet. Anyway, I bought this product a while back and I first heard this from Oiseau88. I decided to give this product a go since I like the outcome. I also feel I was tricked by the model from the advertisement. I mean who doesn't want glowy skin like her?

I didn't read the direction first, so I used half of this volumer and half foundation. I had to apply a second time because there wasn't enough to cover my face. I used a foundation brush to mix the product together and apply it on my face. This product has a scent to it. It isn't really a nice perfume scent but more of the korean makeup scent (which is hard to explain, maybe like BB Cream?)

                                 Before:                                                              After:

 I used a normal maybelline foundation to go with this product. I didn't want to use BB Cream since I already feel that BB Cream gives the skin a shimmery glow so I used a liquid foundation instead. I would say that my face looks less dull and it does have a glow in certain area such as the cheekbones. There are 3 types to choose from but I went for the transparent #3 since I have quite oily skin and I think this is most suitable for my type of skin. I like how it is not glittery so it doesn't enlarge my pores.

Rating: 8/10
I went through a phase where I love highlighter because it makes your skin have a healthy natural glow and it doesn't look like you have a lot of make-up on. I think this is a reasonable price since the size of the product is quite big so it will be long lasting before I need to buy another one. I am confused with the multi-cream description. Aside from making your skin glow, what other benefits does this product have to the skin?

Hi everyone,
I have a job interview today and this is what I wore. This is my first job interview since finishing University. I went for a black blazer, a pencil skirt and a blue shirt.
My make-up is kept neutral with brown eyeshadows.

I really should get this blog back and running since I have a lot of free time on my hand.
I will try and post more often now.
I am currently in the process of losing weight by exercising each day and eating healthy.

Hope everyone is happy and healthy!
