MAC Products Worth the Hype

When I first started blogging MAC was such a huge trend; if you weren’t talking about MAC then you weren’t worth reading however the hype seems to have died down a bit and now the real star products are shining through. I’m not the hugest fan of MAC mainly due to its price and lack of pale foundation shades but I have three products that I believe are worth the hype and I use them in both my own personal collection and also in my professional kit.

Why do I always look so moody in OOTD posts. I promise i’m a happy person!

Anyway, I love this outfit; it’s again very simple but it’s the perfect outfit for just about any occasion. I can see myself wearing this for a lunch date, shopping with the girls, a night out at a cocktail bar or just lounging about at home – minus the boots of course.

The shorts from New Look are a tiny little bit short however I find that wearing some cycling shorts underneath helps any unfortunate flashes. Yes I am still wearing metallic tattoos and these ones are by Lottie London. You get a ton of designs in both silver, gold and black and they are slightly more delicate than the Primark ones I have previously worn. Really easy to apply and last for a good week.

In The Nude|Review

Dubbed as the dupe for Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette I picked this up for my bridal kit and I think its really good value for money. The quality is not as good as Urban Decay but it is still very good, full of pigmentation, quite a buttery texture to the shadows and a good combination of mattes and shimmers. I am not normally a massive fan of more pink and gold toned shadows but this has a really lovely selection and they are quite subtle shades and will be super useful for my bridal and special occasion kit.

They also do two other palettes which are dupes for the Naked 1 and 2.

Superdrug Bargain Hairspray|Review

Superdrug Hairspray Range – £1.29

A lot of the time I am working on a tight budget for my make-up kit and hairspray is something that I get through very easily so I wanted a product that wasn’t going to break the bank but would also work as well as other brands out there. I tried the Superdrug Ultra Firm Hold and knew that this was the bargain hairspray I had been after.

It holds both up-dos and curls in place without making them crispy or sticky and brushes out super easily. There are a range of holds but I prefer Ultra Firm and Extra Firm as they really keep things in place. They also do mini versions which are great for putting in your handbag for on the go.
