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

Where have I been?

I feel like every post I have done recently starts off with an apology for slacking, I admit I have technically been slacking, however I have recently uploaded two Hauls / Purchases in picture slideshow format via youtube.

My plan is that I will upload anything that includes a lot of pictures onto youtube then you can message me there if you want reviews of anything in particular from that slideshow.

I have decided to do picture slideshows rather than live videos as I am not confident talking to a camera. This is the next best thing to blogposts.

I just feel that will be a lot easier for me and it will mean my blogposts aren't miles long lol.

So if you like seeing the things i buy want reviews then subscribe to my youtube channel via the link above and make some requests.

I shall look forward to hearing from you and your thoughts on this idea. Let me know If u like it or would rather I went back to doing the hauls here. Although this way is easier for me if you don't like it then I may aswell just stick to blogging.... I want to do what you all like :).

So I'm going to sign off now before I start babbling too much lol.

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed.

Birthday Purchases Link to Slideshow

I have another Mac Purchases Post for you all today. Some of you may know I had my 24th birthday at the beginning of May. I mainly asked for Money this year so I could buy some of the MAC things I'd wanted for AGES. As I wasn't going shopping until after my birthday I asked Mum if I could have the money from her a week early so I could order some of the things online to have them arrive for my birthday.

I had also saved up quite a bit of money so I was able to get myself 9 things.

I did do a youtube picture slideshow showing but as I know a lot of you may not have seen it I thought I would add a link to this post.

This is a bit of a pathetic post I know. Do you like the video hauls? Or would like me to go back to just blogging everything? Or maybe you want me to blog everything like I used to And do the videos?

Let me know..

If you do like the videos please subscribe :)

Mac Products: Liberty of London and Art Supplies.

I have a whole load of new Mac Products to blog about so I thought I would take this opportunity to show you some of the things I got and am LOVING at the moment. You will probably see a number of posts on all my new Mac goodies as I bought them on 3 seperate occasions and there is way too much to do a collective purchases post, (unless you want it to go on for days lol.)

Firstly, as the title suggests this post is about the Liberty of London and Art Supplies collections.
The 1st thing I bought was the Shell Pearl Beauty Powder.

As you can see it has special packaging. It seems that people either Love it or Hate it. I am going through a phase at the moment of wanting things in special packaging so I love it lol.
The product itself is a very pretty Pink colour with a subtle sheen, on my fair skin it makes a perfect cheek highlight.

Next I decided I wanted to try the Greasepaint sticks.

These are all 'blackened' with a tinge of colour to each one. They are a very similar product to the Mac Shadesticks and NYX Jumbo Pencils except the shadesticks and Jumbo Pencils aren't blackened.

There were 8 I think in the collection, I loved them all but instead of buying all of them I looked through all my NYX Jumbo Pencils to see if I had any similar colours. I decided I could leave 4 out of the 8 as I have similar coloured (but unblackened) Jumbo Pencils.

I'm not going to say any more on these as I will be doing another post comparing them to my shade sticks and jumbo pencils. However I will say i really do love these.

Finally from the Art Supplies Collection I bought one of the Lipstain Markers. I own Posietint and Benetint from Benefit and I love using these under red or pink lipsticks.

I decided it would be nice to have a 'nude' / natural coloured lipstain so when these came out I decided to go for
Point of View. This is a really nice neutral lip colour. I haven't worn it that often but I think I will have to dig it out and use it as I do really like it.

Well thats the end of this post. Sorry if it seemed a little rushed or jumpy. I will try to get another post done tomorrow.

Hope you enjoyed and feel free to comment below
