Review; Seventeen Miracle Matte Powder and concealer

Hey guys!

So today, I am going to be reviewing Seventeen's pressed powder and concealer.

Now, I've heard good things about these products.... but honestly, I really do not like them.

I have the powder in Natural Fair, and I find it turns my face orange and patchy throughout the day, and it feels really cakey on my skin.

I also have the concealer in Medium, and I find that this doesn't give me a lot of coverage at all... and it feels really thick when I use it on my undereyes.

All in all, I really do not like this product and I will NOT be repurchasing this any time soon.... 2/10

Post update!

Hi guys!

So I know I'm quite bad at posting a lot on here, but I just don't have time anymore with uni work!

However, I have decided that I will be posting once a week, either on a Thursday or a Sunday, as they are the days I'm free!

So today, there will be a post up later on today

What's In My Bag?

Morning guys!

Once again, sorry for not posting this last night, my laptop wasn't working again!

But here is my 'Whats In My Bag' from Tuesday night, hope you enjoy!

So this is my new bag! I got it from H&M for £14.99 (usually £19.99, but I had 25% off) and I love it! It had short straps and a long-ish strap, so you can carry it on your shoulder or on your arm.

It has a zip along the top of it, and this is what the inside looks like! It has 2 small pockets on one side, and then a zip pocket on the other side.

Ok, so the first thing I pulled out was my 2 magazines. I have Glamour (which had the 25% off H&M voucher with it) and Company magazine.

I then pulled out my purse. I got this from Primark for about £5, and I love it! It has a zip section at the back, then on the front it has this gold clasp which you turn to open it.

On the inside, it has card sections on both sides, and a zip section in the middle. It is big enough to hold notes and my bus pass in, without me having to fold them up and risk losing them!

Next thing I pulled out was my scarf. It was slightly chilly on Tuesday morning, so I threw this in my bag on my way to work. It is just a simple circle scarf from Primark which I got at Christmas off my mum.

Next thing is my glasses case... Yes, I wear glasses. In my glasses case, I have my prescription glasses, as well as my sunglasses (again, from Primark), so I always carry them round with me.

I then have a little notebook which I just leave in my bag in case any blog posts come to mind, or if I need to jot something down quickly.

Rolling around the bottom of my bag, I have the free mascara that came with the Company magazine. I haven't tried this yet, so I shall be doing this weekend!

I also have a program from Stockport Plaza, which is telling you about everything that is going on there in the next few months. I got this from work, and I have it in my bag because its my dad's birthday soon so I'm going to get him tickets for something there!

I also have an umbrella. I like to prepare for all weathers, hence the sunglasses and umbrella.

Ok, now to the side pockets! In the first one, I just have little things; my lipstick, hand gel, body spray, chewing gum, a pen and my bus pass.

In the other side pocket, I have my phone and headphones.

In the zip pocket, I have my phone charger (I always charge my phone at work as it dies so quickly!), my house keys, as I'm the first one to leave in the mornings and my pen drive with my uni work on.

Hope you enjoyed having a snoop in my bag!

Until next time

Upcoming posts!

Hi guys!

First off, I would like to apologise on my not-so-decent attempt at an OOTD everyday last week... my phone camera was playing up, and I couldn't get a decent photo with my camera!

Ok, so I have a few posts coming this week, including a Whats In My Bag, Everyday Hair and probably a mini-haul post!

I am also going to this blogger meetup in Manchester on Sunday 16th, so if any of you are going, come say hey! Me and Nicole (coleoftheball) will be vlogging the day!

Bye guys

OOTD - Day 3? March 6th

Sorry I didn't post an ootd yesterday, my phone was playing up and wouldn't let me take photos D:

So here is today's ootd;

I have my high waist skinny jeans from Primark, my low top converse are also from Primark and my baseball shirt is from New Look. 

For my hair and makeup, I have my messy bun in, and my makeup, I am wearing gold/copper eyeshadow, brown eyeliner on my waterline and mascara, as well as foundation, concealer and powder. (Sorry I didn't take a photo, but if you look in my 'about me' page, I have the same makeup as on there!)

That's all for today, see you tomorrow!

OOTD - Day 2 - March 4th

Hey guys!

Here's my second OOTD for this week;

So this outfit is pretty similar to yesterday, but I have work today and my uniform is all black. So I am wearing black leggings again and an oversized black tee. I am also wearing my super chunky circle scarf from Primark as it's chilly outside. 

(Queue weird pose) For my makeup, I'm just wearing foundation, concealer, powder and mascara, as I really couldn't be bothered doing anything else this morning!

For my hair, I have to wear it up for work, so I just did my everyday messy bun which is super simple to achieve :)

That's all for today, see you tomorrow!

Outfit Of The Day!

Hey guys!

So, I've decided I'm gonna do an OOTD every day this week (if I remember that is)!

So, let's start with today - Monday March 3rd. 

So today, I was at uni all day, so I just threw in something comfortable this morning as I wasn't feeling too great. 

So I have a glow-in-the-dark Mickey Mouse Skeleton t-shirt on which I got from Primark a while back. I paired this with plain black leggings, and my black Doc Marten look-a-likes, also from Primark. 

For my hair and makeup, I kept it quite simple as I went to the gym after uni (not that you can tell). I had my hair curly, but I did this the night before. I twisted my hair and then pinned it to my head and slept on it (Bethany Mota - MacBarbie07 on YouTube, put up a tutorial of this the other day) and then my makeup was my everyday simple eyeliner look. 

See you tomorrow guys,
