My name is Jo I am in my 20s and officially a makeup beauty Addict. I have always loved playing with makeup. However It was at the beginning of this year that I finally discovered my passion. I first got into makeup in a big way when I searched for something on Youtube. I typed in the search and found all these girls talking about and experimenting with makeup. From that day on I was hooked. I have made a couple of really good friends on youtube who encouraged me to start blogging. So as I am unable to make videos myself here I am. It's early days but I have some interesting things to come. If you have anything to say about any of my posts please feel free to leave a comment. Thanks Jo x

Random collective Purchases + LOTD using UDBOS2

I bought a view random things over a period of time recently. I didnt think they would make a decent blogpost individually so I decided to combine them all into one post.

The 1st thing I got is the Sleek Sunset Palette.

I bought this Palette from a very nice beauty blogger called Jasmine. This is my second Sleek Palette and I love it. Thankyou Jasmine.

Next I purchased YSL Touche Eclat Radient Touch.

I absolutely love this for undereye concealing. However it's very expensive so if you don't want to spend the money I will be doing a comparison blog between this and another concealer....More on that at a later date :).

The final Misc item I purchased recently was something I have wanted for SO SO LONG!!!! The URBAN DECAY BOOK OF SHADOWS VOLUME 2!!!!!

As you can see from the picture it comes with 16 shadows, 2 of the mini 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencils in Zero and Bourbon and a mini Primer Potion.

Becky bought it a while ago and has shown it to me quite a few times on blogtv. I was going to wait til after christmas to get it but Becky recommended I get it ASAP because after christmas it's only available while stocks last. (Going by a couple of people on twitter who did wait til after xmas it's already sold out...glad I got it when I did...thanks Becky :)

I have had quite a few plays with this palette and I LOVE IT!!!! I used it today for the 1st time properly and I created this very neutral look. (I knew the 1st picture isn't the best but oh well...Oh and ignore the earphone lol.)

For this look I used the Primer Potion all over the lid as a base.Sellout, YDK, Mushroom and Twice Baked for the shadows. I used the liner in Bourbon on the upper and lower lashlines and in the waterline. For my mascara I used my Rimmel Sexy Curves.
I will probably do this look a couple more times then do a written tutorial on it at a later date.
Well I think thats it for my Misc Purchases. I will be doing a post on some of my xmas pressies soon.
I was hoping to go shopping yesterday but car wouldn't start....Dad came to fix it today but couldn't so I probably won't be able to go for a few days now :(. I will do another purchases post when i get to go.
Quick question, I would love to get some more of the Lush xmas goodies. Do you think they will have plenty of stock to last for a while? Or should I order the things i want online to be safe and just hope I like the smells etc? Any thoughts let me know in the comments.

ELF Makeup Pictures

I know what you are all probably thinking...'Jo has been a major blog slacker lately.' Sorry about that.

I have been meaning to do so many posts recently. Mainly Purchases that I made way before Christmas, I just never got round to doing it. So since christmas has now been and gone and I wanted to show you some of the things I recieved.

These next few posts are mainly going to be pictures. I will write in more detail about the products eventually but for now this will have to do :).

I decided to do a ‘Collective Purchases’ series as I have spent WAY too much money lately.

Collective Purchase basically means random things that I have bought over a period of time. So bear in mind that I didn’t purchase everything included in the the next couple of posts in one day.

I’ve ordered from ELF (post will come asap) and obviously Mac. I also got a few other random things that you will hear about sometime in the future. (This includes something VERY exciting that I have wanted for AGES.)

In this post I will be showing you the 2nd lot of Mac Holiday collection purchases.

I’m only going to run through everything I bought in this post as I have rambled on way too much already. I will do separate posts on things that I feel I need to give further information on.
If you are a keen reader of my blog you will have seen my last Mac holiday collection post. I had a very long list of things I wanted. I originally I decided I didn’t want to spend too much money so I narrowed it down to just a few things.

When I received the 1st order there was a number of things I was kicking myself for not. However I was determined that I had spent enough.

This was until I ran out of Mac makeup remover wipes!!

I decided as I was ordering from Mac anyway I might as well get a couple more things from the collection. I’m also going to skip on the new collection Baroque Boudoir. (This is the collection with very posh looking packaging and it’s VERY expensive.)

Anyway back to the Holiday collection, There are still some things that I would’ve liked to get
but I decided I would leave the rest. (Yes I know 2 orders and I still didn’t get everything I wanted..)

I ended up getting the Devil May Care eye shadow Palette and the other 2 pigment vial sets.

I especially think the Pigment sets are a very good value for money at £27.50 each. I have all 3 from this collection and I will definitely buy the pigment sets again next year (if Mac sell them then..)

I thought I had taken a photo of the second set open..Obviously not...Oh well it basically looks the same apart from a different colour base to the box :)....I wish I had got at least 1 of the lip gloss sets, but never mind.

I think that is all I have to say for now. I will do another post at a later date and go into more detail if you want me to.

Hope you enjoyed. :) x

Quick update

Sorry to all my followers that I haven't posted here for AGES.

Just wanted to give you a little update so you know I haven't forgotten about my blog. I have been feeling guilty that I havent posted.

I do have an excuse though so I hope you won't mind too much :).

Firstly I wanted to wait until I had recieved all the things I was waiting for in the post (they have now arrived)

Secondly since all the parcels arrived I have been quite ill.

I think I am on the mend now...However I have said that about 4 times this week so who knows lol.

I know this is a very short and pathetic attempt at a post.

Hopefully I will be able to do 2 or 3 posts in quick succession soon. I have taken photos of everything I have ordered recently. Including one thing that I have wanted for AGES...very exciting hehe.

My boyfriend is coming to see me for a week on wednesday so don't be surprised if you don't hear anything from me on here until after he's gone.

Okay I think thats about it for my (cough pathetic cough) update lol.

I will get back into the swing of things soon.

OH before I forget I wanted to say a big THANKYOU to my THIRTY followers. I hope you're all enjoying my posts. Feel free to leave comments.
