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

Recent Haul 2 Urban Decay

I have really been liking Urban Decay lately. I have collected all of the Books of shadows except the 1st one, so as soon as I saw Volume 3 on the Debenhams website I ordered it straight away.

A few weeks after I got The Book of Shadows 3 I was comtemplating whether I 'needed' to get the Naked Palette and the Black Palette. I had kind of decided that it wasn't really necessary so if it had sold out before I got to get it I wouldn't be too disappointed, (although lets face it, I would have been lol.) 

I was browsing my local Debenhams when I saw a small shelf of URBAN DECAY Obviously logic went out the window and I pounced on both the palettes I wanted without a second thought.

I have used the Naked Palette a couple of times since I got it and I really like it and I really like it, although I do still think I COULD have got by without it...Oh well lol.

As for the Black Palette I haven't really used that yet. I am planning on having a play with it tomorrow, but from what I have swatched I think it's really nice and I cannot wait to use it with my Pixie Epoxy.

Well that's all I can think of to say in this post. Hope you enjoyed.

Recent Haul 1 (There have been a few) Benefit

I know some of you may have seen my picture slideshow on youtube but for those that haven't here are pictures of the things I have bought recently. I would just like to add before I show the pictures everything I show was paid for with my own money. 

Okay Lets get started 


 I am a fan of Benefit Products. My favourite item from the above pics has to be Stay Don't Stray (see the 1st picture). It is a really nice primer for eyeshadows and concealers..It even works quite well alone as a concealer if you are in a rush in the morning. 

I am also a big fan of High Beam. I had a sample of this so when I was in the shop I decided to get the full size. 

As you can see I also bought Moonbeam...this is purely because I like collecting things lol. I definitely wouldn't say you needed Both, Moonbeam is a bit more iridescenty (if that's a word lol.) They are both nice to have if you are a collector. 

Another thing I have collected are the box powders. I have all 6 of them. The 2 shown here were the only 2 i needed to complete the collection..(of course I had to get them lol.) I will do a blogpost showing the full collection at some point. Will I get the next one if they release more..? Of course lol. 

I have to say the mascara disappointed me a bit. I bought Badgal Plum back in March which I LOVE so I wanted to get the brown verson to be the same.

The brush with the Plum one is a lot bigger. (It is the same as the black version) and I felt it applied more mascara to the lashes.

LOTD (Full face Purples)

I went out yesterday felt like getting a bit 'glammed up' so I decided to do a full face Makeup look. It was definitely an 'Experimental' look.

I'm sure all of you reading this blogpost have days where you just want to experiment by applying lots of makeup to your face....So 18 products later (yes i know 18...I was lucky that it didn't go horribly wrong) I came up with this look.  

It is a lot brighter than the kind of look I would wear if I was going out normally. After seeing all the products used spread over my bed I was worried I would end up looking like a clown...However I was really pleased with the look. I used a mixture of brands highend + drugstore...Here is a list of the products:

Gosh Velvet Touch Face Primer                                
Mac Strobe Liquid
Mac Mineralised Satin Finish                      
Olay Touch of Foundation
Benefit Stay Don’t Stray

YSL Touche Eclait
Elf Complexion Perfection                          
Mac Well Dressed                                           
Mac Coy Girl

Mac Aristo-Cat

Benefit It Stick                                                  
Benefit Stay Don’t Stray Primer
Mac Grease Paint Stick Charred Mauve (crease)

Stila Kajal Liner in Onyx on waterline

If you want me to do a tutorial in a different post showing pictures of each step then let me know in the comments. 

I did purchase everything with my own money and I do really love all these products.

Thanks for reading everyone and I hope you enjoyed
