Seventeen Mega Matte Lipsticks - best drugstore matte formula?

First of all, welcome back!
The two weeks of my blogging break have gone way too quickly but certainly left me more relaxed and re-energised. I spent lovely time with my mum, my boys got spoiled even more and we all enjoyed the last days of Summer holidays.

I also gave my blog a bit of a facelift and changed the template, it's nothing dramatically different but it's a fresh look and get me just that bit more excited about blogging.

And as promised, I'm back today with a new post.

Lipsticks are quickly becoming one of my favourite makeup item, although eyeshadows are still keeping the first place, and trying new formulas is always exciting for me. Even though matte lipsticks have been ruling the lipsticks world for some time now I feel like there weren't that many great ones in the drugstore. Not anymore!
Enter Seventeen Mega Matte Lipsticks (£4.49)* which were recently launched and I was kindly sent a few shades from the range.

An update

In case you missed my last post I just wanted to update you that I am taking two weeks off from blogging. Sadly I am not going anywhere exotic but I will have my mum over and just want to spend the rest of Summer holidays without worrying about the blog and my presence online. 
We're planning to have a few days away so keep an eye on my Instagram for some InstaStories :)  
And I surely will still check your blogs!

That's it from me right now. I will talk to you again on the 31st August!

Eggshell membrane as best anti-aging ingredient? Perricone MD OVM Day Treatment - review

Have you ever thought of using skincare with chicken eggshell as one of the ingredient?
Yeah, me neither.
Until I got the chance to try the Perricone MD OVM Day Treatment* which is scientifically formulated with Eggshell Membrane, harnessed from a non-fertilized eggs, which is rich in nutrients, proteins and peptides ideal for skin rejuvenation.
Perricone MD is a brand I've heard about in the past but never got the chance to try anything from, so I was very excited when they got in touch with me and kindly offered to send a product from their range for me to try. I'm in no obligation to talk about it on my blog but I wanted to, as it's such a different product from I've tried before and I just love the science and theory behind it.

Makeup tutorial: wedding guest/bridal makeup look

Wedding season is in full swing and you might be attending one soon or maybe you're even a bride to be (congratulations to you then!) and I'm sure you're wondering what makeup to wear on that day.
Whether you're wedding guest or bride you want your makeup to enhance your beautiful features, be long lasting and look good in photos. There's no rules in makeup, you wear what you like and what makes you feel comfortable. But one thing I can advice is to go for more classic, timeless look as it will always look beautiful.
I know that nowadays people usually have their wedding makeup done professionally by a makeup artist but if you prefer to do your own makeup or you're attending a wedding and want to get some tips and inspiration for a look then keep on reading :)

The Summer lovin' tag

With Summer in full swing, although it could be a bit warmer here in UK but as long as it doesn't rain I won't be complaining, I thought it was the perfect time to do the 'Summer lovin' tag which I was invited to join by my lovely blogging friends Sal and Dorota. I love Summer and everything that comes with the warmer weather and longer days so I really enjoyed answering the questions.
So without further ado let's get to the tag :)

I'm a beauty blogger and beauty enthusiast/junkie at the end! So today I want to share with you what I bought recently and my first impressions on these products.

My tips on applying false lashes

Instead of my usual Friday makeup tutorial post I've decided to share with you today my tips on how to apply false lashes so they look good and feel comfortable on the eyes. I'm not expert by any means but I've been using false lashes for a while now, I'm not longer terrified by them and I can easily wear them for a special event without worrying about them. So after a few people asked me for tips on how to apply false lashes I thought I will share with you what I've learnt on the topic.
If, like me, you haven't been blessed with long, thick lashes but want to add a bit more drama to your eyes for a special occasion then false lashes is a way to go.
If you want to know how do I apply false lashes keep on reading :)

'Create your own eyeshadow palette' tag, my perfect everyday Makeup Geek eyeshadow palette

It's well documented on my blog that I'm an eyeshadow palettes enthusiast/junkie, so when I saw on Katina's blog 'Create your own eyeshadow palette' tag I knew I want to do it myself as well. The idea behind the tag is to 'create' your own 12 eyeshadow palette consisted of existing single or 'in palettes' eyeshadows.
Last weekend I sat down surrounded by all my 40+ palettes ready to choose my 12 the most favourite eyeshadows amongst them. I knew it would be rather difficult but I didn't expect it to be impossible, haha!

July beauty and lifestyle favourites

Can someone tell me where has July gone?? I can't believe it's August already! I swear the time is escaping through my fingers!
Anyway, I'm here today to chat with you about some of my latest favourite things. I didn't try many new makeup or skincare products last month and I've been still loving many things from my June beauty favourites but I managed to choose a few new things that were a big hit these past few weeks. And because there are not that many beauty favourites I've decided to share with you some other things that I've been obsessed with.
So let's get started!
