Here we are half way through the year already, Christmas stuff will be hitting the shelves soon (sorry). There hasn’t been much of a Summer here in Scotland so perhaps that’s why both my favourite lip colours last month have definitely been Autumnal. I’m still a big fan of Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvets and I’ve been wearing a lot of Grand-Cru. A beautiful burgundy shade that at times can be a bit patchy but when it works it’s the most stunning colour. The Barbara Daly lipstick in Damson is quite similar in colour but a bit lighter and with a different finish. This is great if you have thin lips as it has boosting agents in it, I absolutely love this colour and I picked it up from Tesco for only a couple of pounds. 

The Estee Lauder Sumptuous Infinite mascara is a sample I received with a purchase. It’s brilliant! One of the best mascaras I’ve used. It’s quite a wet mascara so it covers all your lashes easily, it dries down quickly without any clumping or mess and it doesn’t budge. I’ll be purchasing the full size. And finally, one of my long-standing favourites Illamasqua Katie blush. It’s just the perfect light pink for pale skins that lasts all day.

    I really despise the summer so it may seem like a grand idea to move to Scotland lol. England's cold but at times can be super hot which i really dislike.

    I really wanted to try the bourjois rouge edition velvets in grand-cu but after reading a lot of reviews of how patchy it is, I've gone off the idea as it seems like too much effort though it is a beautiful colour. Mac's lipstick in taupe, estee lauders doublewear foundation and maybellines color tattoo in creamy beige have been some of my favourites recently xx
