• MAC Whirl Lipstick & Lip Liner || Beauty

    May 27, 2016 FrannyMac

    Over the last year, the amount of nude lipsticks in my collection has grown rapidly. I’ve gone from only owning Velvet Teddy because it was a cult product (anyone else do this?!) and leaving it barely used for a good three months to having a massive collection of nude lipsticks including a massive haul of Kylie Jenner-esque ones from Colour Pop (but more on that in another post..). So, when I won a £25 Debenhams voucher at work I thought I’d…

  • The Balm Nudetude Eyeshadow Palette Review || Beauty

    May 9, 2016 FrannyMac

    Despite having heard some fantastic things about theBalm’s products, until a few weeks ago I hadn’t had a chance to properly try any. I’d occasionally seen palettes and sets in TKMaxx and got rather excited only to find when I opened the box it would either be covered in finger marks or broken, devastating. I’d narrowly missed having a Nude’tude palette through my mailbox when I cancelled my Cohorted subscription the month before and was seconds away from a discounted Mary-Lou Manizer in…

  • 3 Of My Favourite Single Eyeshadows || Friday Favourites

    April 22, 2016 FrannyMac

    I am a self confessed makeup hoarder. When I see a new release I want, no matter what kind of spending ban I’m on, it’s a given that I will likely buy it sooner rather than later meaning the amount of money I spend on cosmetics makes me blush (pun not intended but I’m embracing it anyway..). So I made myself a promise to try and rediscover some older favourites before I splurge on new pieces and shop my stash rather…

  • L’Oreal Infallible Fixing Mist Review || Beauty

    April 8, 2016 FrannyMac

    When it comes to my daily makeup routine, discovering fixing spray was a big revelation for me. Although at first, it did remind me of how as a teenager I used to spray my face with hair spray before a night out. (I shudder for my poor skin just thinking about it.) But, after suppressing that original hair spray thought, fixing spray quickly became a part of my daily routine. We all want our faces to look exactly as they did when we…

  • Too Faced Sugar Pop Palette Review || Beauty

    March 28, 2016 FrannyMac

    You know how I said I love finding a bargain in TkMaxx? Well when I wondered in a little while back I well and truly lucked out and found a whole heap of Too Faced goodies including a few of the Colour Bomb lipsticks and this gorgeous Sugar Pop eyeshadow palette. Normally, Too Faced’s Sugar Pop palette retails at £32.00 so finding it for £9.99 less than a third of the RRP seemed an absolute steal. Much like their Boudoir Eyes palette, inside…

  • Too Faced Boudoir Eyes Palette Review || Beauty

    March 10, 2016 FrannyMac

    Since my first Sephora order a few months ago I have developed a bit of a Too Faced obsession. After falling head over heals in love with their Chocolate Bar palette, my collection now spans to a few blushes, a handful of lipsticks and of course a several more palettes. One of my favourites of these is Boudoir Eyes, a collection of nine “soft & sexy” eye shadows that are designed to create three distinctive looks, although there is no reason…
