Flowers || May

Mood: Hopeful
Listening to: The XX- Crystalised

Hey everyone, this will probably be the most boring post I've ever written but I thought I'd take some pictures of my flowers and just mess around with my camera. I know this isn't my usual beauty or lifestyle post so I do apologise. Hope you like flowers, I guess!

Anyway I hope you're all having a great week so far, I for one can't wait for the weekend!

New Beauty Products || May

Mood: Tired 
Listening to: Rita Ora- I Will Never Let You Down

Hey beautiful bloggers!

I feel like I haven't posted a proper beauty post in such a long time, so I thought I'd share some beauty products I've bought recently. I've only chosen five products because I've been on a spending ban for a while because I've been saving to go to London at the end of this month for a Hen Night. Most of my items are lip products, so I do apologise if your fed up of looking at lipsticks!

New Products

 1. Benefit's Watt's Up Highlighter! 
I absolutely adore this product, it genuinely makes your face glow when it catches the light (in a good way, obviously.) It is a bit pricey at £24 but it is one of my favourite highlighters. Its elegant champagne colour is perfect for any skin tone, and adds a touch of glamour to any make up look. Well done Benefit.

2. Topshop's Waterproof Eyeliner in Ebony
After what feels like years searching for a cheaper version of Urban Decay's 24/7 eyeliner, I think I've found it. Topshop's waterprof liners are really an amazing product and are a steal at only £5. I chose the colour Ebony as I wanted a pure black eyeliner but they also do another colour called Gunpowder, which is a sleek grey colour, perfect if you find black too harsh.

3. Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Matte Lipstick in Frambourjoise
I must admit, the first time I tried this product on I was unsure whether I loved it or hated it but I gave it another chance and I really enjoy using it now. The first time I used it was during the day and I'm not one who usually uses such a bold colour in the day but I wore it out in the evening the second time and I much preferred it. The colour is very long lasting and has a wonderful matte finish. It's perfect for a night out because your not constantly topping up your lipstick throughout the night and stains your lips so it doesn't smudge.

4 + 5. Topshop Lipsticks in Brighton Rock and Ditsy
You don't know how long I've been meaning to buy these lipsticks and now I finally have them! They cost £8 each and I absolutely love both colours and they're perfect for summer. Brighton Rock is a stunning satin matte pink and Ditsy is a gorgeous velvet matte finished hot coral colour. They both apply well and have great colour pay off. I cannot wait until summer to wear them.

Well those are my recent beauty products, but I thought I might add in a bag I bought yesterday just to finish off the post. The bag is from Matalan and cost £12, I bought it for daytime shopping and it would look perfect with so many outfits.

I hope you've all had a great week, and let me know if you've bought any great products recently.

Love from Bethan
