MAC Cinderella Fluidline in Little Black Bow | Review

A Disney fanatic needs MAC's Cinderella range in their life. Thankfully MAC restocked on a few items a while back so I snapped up the Fluidline in Little Black Bow before it vanished again.

I always have to wear eyeliner, but black eyeliner sometimes looks a little harsh or heavy. MAC's Little Black Bow is a shimmering grey/silver gel liner. It glides on very easily, it's very smooth and doesn't leak (a big plus for me). It's quite translucent - just enough to show and shimmer in the light, and you can easily build up the opacity.

The packaging is so cute as well, with a specially designed pearlised light lavender blue packaging. I'm a sucker for packaging.

This range may be old news now, but I do love to use this eyeliner. It's made me want to check out other MAC Fluidlines too, as I've never used them before.

What do you think of MAC's Fluidline range?

essence Longlasting Lipstick in 05 Cool Nude & 03 Come Naturally | Review

I didn't take photos before using these. Soz. I just got too excited. I'm a big fan of essence, and I do love these nude Longlasting Lipsticks from the brand. I picked up 05 Cool Nude and 03 Come Naturally to try.

Both lipsticks feel really creamy and light when applied, and give your lips a much needed 'oomph' when necessary. They apply so easily, but I wouldn't say they live up to the 'longlasting' name. However, for £2.30 each, I'm by no means going to start complaining about that.

I always prefer my lips to look slightly darker, and these nude shades are perfect. They're not too light and they offer a slightly deeper plum/pink shade to your lips. I always have one in my handbag, and tend to be my go-to lippie for work.

What do you think of essence's lipsticks?

Vaseline Spray and Go Body Moisturiser | Review

I sometimes go through a phase where I can't be bothered to moisturise after showering. Bad, I know. However, my body is now paying the price and my skin is drier than ever. I wanted to find something which will create a fast, seemless process. I don't want to stand there for 5-10 minutes until the moisturiser soaks in!

Vaseline's Spray and Go body moisturiser is perfect if you're in a rush. You spray the moisturiser on your body, you rub it in and then you're ready to go.

It doesn't feel sticky or greasy when you apply it, although don't spray too much, else you do have to wait a little bit for it to soak in.

It sprays evenly so it's very quick to rub into your skin. It's also very useful for your back if you don't have anyone to do it for you!

Overall, I'm pretty chuffed and so is my skin.

Autumn leaves | What I Wore

Zara printed blouse. Topshop jeans.

What's that? Yet another bunch of old photos I didn't share with you before I got my hair chopped off? Yep. That's right.

I bought this blouse from Zara months ago but it's one of my favourites to throw on, usually teamed with a pair of jeans. It's a loose fit, and you do have to be careful when bending forward as the blouse will show off your chest.

I love the colours and feel it would be great we hit A/W again. However, as it's very light to wear, it's great for the current climate (apart from when we go through a heatwave, of course), especially if I have to look smart for work.

The blouse has helped me to rediscover my love for prints and that I need to invest some more!
