Born Pretty Double Coloured Lipstick Review


 
(Last photo from bornpretty.com)
 
If you read my last blogpost (click here) you will know I was sent a package from the website BornPretty. One of the first things that caught my eye was this Double Coloured Lipstick. I thought it was such a cute idea and ... I mean its almost worth buying just for the Instagram photo. plus at $1.99 (£1.30) which is an amazing price for such a cute adorable lipstick.
 
 
I chose number 4 which is the pink and gold one. In the picture from the website it looks more pink and orange but I actually prefer the gold colour because it gives a nice sparkle to the product which looks amazing. The two colours mix together to create a sparkly pink colour, almost rose gold which is one of my favourite colours. The actual product its self feels more like a lip balm as its quite glossy and moisturising. I think its more like the Baby Lips products than an actual lipstick  which gives it a more sheer and subtle look. However if you want a brighter colour the lipstick layers quite well on top of each other which creates a nice bubble gum pink. Overall this a really nice, cute affordable lip product which I seriously recommend you try if you want a cheaper version of Baby Lips to try. Use the coupon code MGRH10 for 10% off your order.

Born Pretty Contour Palette




Hey guys, as promised, I'm back with another review from me. So I received a package from the website  BornPretty (click here) . Now I have to say I'm not familiar with this brand but so far ... I'm super impressed. The item I was most excited to try was the mini contour palette (with and included brush set) which cost under 10$ (under £6.50) which is an absolute bargain.

The first thing that I love about this palette is how easy the colours are to blend even if you don't have a beauty blender. This makes life so much easier when trying to get your contour on plus .... It always looks on point. The smaller concealer style brushes that come with palette are perfect for creates great small lines and making everything look perfect.

 Secondly there's an amazing range of colours which means you can go from casual fave makeup to Kim K contouring the oath one palette. The darkest brown works if you a really dark contour and looks pretty sharp and impressive. Also there's a cream blush, a green, a yellow and a highlighter. The green works really well on under eye circles as it cover them but also brighten the eye area. I'm super impressed with the rename of colours. 

Also the palette is also quite hypoallergenic. Because I have seriously sensitive skin I normally try foundation on I store before I by them. And I've been using this product for about three or four days and I've not had any skin problem, itching or redness where I've put this product. So if your worried about it upsetting your skin, don't be. It's seems to be agreeing with my skin and I'm allergic to other makeup brands... Which may or may not have left me face all puffy like a chipmunk. 

Okay, can we just talk about the price for a second. I mean for a pretty decent contour palette you're not goi to get a better price. Let's be honest. I would highly reccomned it to anyone but espcially if you haven't ever owned a contour palette before, like myself, and want one that is really easy to blend, apply and quite easy to remove as well in case ... It goes a bit wrong. Seriously this palette would make an excellent addition to anyone's collection plus you get and included brush set aswell (wait for a review on those). 

Also if you guys want to purchase any of the items for this glorious website than use the code MGRH10 to get 10% off. This glorious site has everything from cute phone cases to nail stencils and polish to jewellery, brushes and lipstick. Seriously check them out if your into all things cute and girly.

What I Did This Summer

So before summer officially started I posted a "summer checklist". This was where I set myself ten things I wanted to do this summer. I did some really awesome things ... But I spent the last few weeks working a lot to affor a laptop or save enough to go to America next year with college.... Which is going to be the best part of £2000 ... Help!!! So needless to say I spent most of mutineers working a crappy job to earn not a huge a,out of cash *sigh*. I also did some wonderful things. Meet up with some friends ... ,managed to get to the front at a TAYLOR SWIFT CONCERT!!! (I actually still can't believe that happened). So it's time to review my checklist and see what I did. To make this more interesting I've come up with some forfeits for the ones that I've failed. So let's see how I've done .... 

1. Go to the beach .... At least twice. - CHECK 

2. Go somewhere I've never been before. -CHECK - I went to Brighton and I'd never been there before

3. Be brave enough to go swimming!!!! - FAIL!! - with my next pay check buy a nice swimming costume and drag my best friend down to the pool ... Maybe over the October half term 

4. Go up to London to visit my friend who lives there. - FAIL!! I'm going to London on the 26th to see one direction ... So maybe do a day in photos London Editon 

5. Change my hairstyle dramatically.- CHECK 

6.  Get a job. - CHECK 

7. Make a photo album of my entire summer - FAIL!! - I'm thinking do a Christmas special a day in photos 

8. Blog at least twice a week. - FAIL!!! - its going to be another daily blogging month next month 

9. Raise my Instagram game!!! - FAIL!!! - upload my day in photos to Instagram 

10. Do something out of my comfort zone. - CHECK

So as you can see .... I failed miserably this summer and not just at my a levels *sobs*. What di you guys do this summer? Let me know in the comments.

A Fresh Start

Okay so before we start this blogpost I feel like we should clear up a few things. One: no, I'm not giving up blogging/starting a new blog. This blog is my baby and my little space on the internet so in now way will I be deleting my baby in the foreseeable future. Two: i know it's been the best part of three weeks since I've blogged but I do have some reasonable excuses. I've ahead a bad experience with blogging/other websites and I just felt like I wanted to distended myself from it to make sure I didn't mess up again. Also starting college has been stressful and I've been working double shifts to try and buy a new laptop ... Not the best excuses but .. Hey I'm back!!! Three: to make up for number two October is going to be DAILY BLOGGING MONTH to celebrate my 18th and as an apology. And just as a bit of a warning this isn't my normal beauty post ... It's more of a lifestyle post so if that's not your thing ... I'll have a "normal" post in the next few days.

So as some of you may know I'm officially a sc one year at college. Now most of my friends are thinking about university next year and preparing do their A2's while I'm restarting my year again with new subjects and that means ... First years. Don't get me wrong I know I was a first year once but I've gone through this whole introduction phase and it's boring me having to go through it again. And there's the added 'sinking feeling in the bottom of my stomach' when I think about the fact that I am the only person who failed in my friendship group and is completely restarting. It's sucks .... I'm not gonna lie. I feel like I can't be part of my friendship group anymore because of the fact that ... They're all leaving me. 

However, after that morbidly depressing part there are several benefits. I hated maths. I've never been quiet about it and I've never really been good at it. If you don't like maths and aren't super great win numbers don't do it. Please save yourself the trouble and take something else. After Christmas it gets really hard and I wish I was exaggerating. Anyway, I've chosen subjects that I love and have a passion for and I've finally figured out what I want to do at university... After all of last year of crying about the instability of my future I have found out want I want to do. It also find myself listening in lessons. I hardly remember what my teachers were talking about last year because I'd fade out and just daydream/be in my phone. Please if you find yourself doing this in you're first few weeks CHANGE COURSES. I feel like this huge weight has been lifted of my shoulder because I love what I'm doing. I actually feel sorry for someone my friends who hate their lessons. I know so many people that can't be bothered to go to their lessons or make excuses ... And I'm actually excited. I'm well aware of how cheesy that sounds and I'm cringing writing it. But it's kinds the truth. Please don't make my mistakes and TAKE SUBJECTS YOU ENJOY!! If you need to take subjects for uni but you don't like them than that course isn't for you. Please if you take anything from this blog take this one piece of advice.
