This Bank Holiday weekend I've had such a lovely family one. We went to Skegness for the day and stayed in Chapel.
Here are some pictures of our trip.

Sonia Kashuk

Self confessed make up brush junkie! If there was a rehab for people who have/need/buy/hoard as many make up brushes as me then trust me id be there. I absolutely love trying new brushes as they are constantly promising us that 'airbrushed look'. I have heard a lot about the Sonia Kashuk brushes and how great they are from those Youtubers across the pond but unfortunately they are pretty impossible to get your hands on in the UK. That ladies is until my cousin Ayisha so very kindly bought me some for my birthday and posted them over to me. The larger of the brushes is No 1 and the smaller is No 29. I used these literally straight away and they are the softest brushes i have ever used. That ladies is a huge claim as I've used most! The powder brush allows you to pick up a tiny amount of product and just sweep it effortlessly all over your face evenly. The blusher brush is great too, i used it with my super pigmented Bobbi Brown blush and it allowed me to apply it and blend it seamlessly. These brushes will be staying in my collection and daily routine. If you get the chance to get hold of any brushes by Sonia Kashuk then most definitely do so.

Frog Prince by Lipstick Queen.

An email from Space NK pinged into my inbox early last week and usually i just have a quick look through and realise i definitely don't need any more make up 'yeah right'! This new lipstick by Lipstick Queen as you can see is very unusual (its green for a start and we are nowhere near Halloween), anyway as soon as i saw it waves of nostalgia came over me. This lipstick reminded me of one i had when i was a child and that was green too, you put it on your lips and with the heat it turned into some gawdy pink that was awful. Im not going to lie though the thought of that happening again with this and the £22 price tag still didn't put me off. You will be happy to know that this is a lovely lipstick, it applies clear on to your lips and turns a flattering rosy shade. You don't need this product by any means but its definitely a fun novelty one to have around and if like me you remember your childhood days with it then you should definitely go right ahead.

Terry Ombré Blackstar

So if your a fellow Youtube lover like me you will have heard the likes of Tanya Burr and Lilly Pebbles rave about Terry Ombré Blackstar shadow sticks. I'm not one for cream just going to put that out there. However I saw a get ready with me video by Tanya using one and it left me feeling pretty darn intrigued. So off to Space NK I trotted and picked up the colour Beyond Gold. I wanted something that was build able, blendable and very day to day friendly. I wanted something super easy to sweep on my lids and use a simple chocolatey brown in my crease for a easy smokey eye look. That is just what I got in this stick.

The packaging is stunning and slick which is something i would expect from all By Terry products, the cream shadow stick twists up easily too. Its super light and thin so perfect for travelling and switching up a look fairly quickly.

Above it is swatched heavily and below it has been blended out. As you can see the bottom swatch is much more subtle and actually looks a little darker which is personally how i prefer it on a day to day basis.

Next time your in Space NK be sure to check them out. While this isn't an essential product it's sure a lovely one to have in your make up bag.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend x
