It’s been a while since I did a weekly roundup post, I’ve been loving seeing others recently as I’ve been struggling to keep on top of reading other’s posts and it’s a great way to check I’ve not missed anything I wanted to read. I also thought I’d include a few things I’ve done/watched or loved over the past week, this month I’ve got what TV shows and Films I’ve been watching and what makeup I’ve been loving this week.
My first ever product regrets post, not all of them are because I hate the product, some were bad shade choices or that I simply don’t reach for it.
Best event I’ve ever been invited to, I met a bunch of famous youtubers and got the best goodie bag ever, all listed in the post here.
I was sent some new straighteners, after a few weeks of use I put pen to paper and told you what I liked, and didn’t like about them.
Thursday – NYX Transylvania Soft Matte Lip Cream
Perfect shade to review for Halloween week, I’ve had this SMLC since March but it’s only now I’ve started using it since the weather has turned.
Friday – Beauty Bits Haul
A weird collective haul from last friday, with some essentials I stocked up on, and some bits I just saw and absolutely 100% needed.
Saturday – OPI Russian Navy
It’s been a few weeks since I’ve reviewed a nail polish, I’ve been wearing a gel for the past week and before that I had 10 days off painting my nails. A classic shade from OPI I’ve wanted in my collection for a while.
Makeup I’m Loving this Week
Grey lips again, I'm loving this shade and it's perfect for Halloween! Also a little slice of colour that I've mixed for my next colour change as a test (needs more blue) #bbloggers #dırectionshaircolour #directionsalpinegreen #beauty #gerardcosmetics #gerardcosmeticsgravity #fotd #halloweenmakeup #ukblogger
Gerard Cosmetics Gravity Liquid Lipstick – I got this last week at the Beauty Bay event and I love it. It’s not in my comfort zone but there’s something wearable about this unusual grey toned shade. Has really nice wear time too and is comfortable to wear. Big fan.
Jeffree Star Leo Liquid Lipstick – I never would have picked this up I don’t think but holy crap I really love this. It reminds me of KVD’s Lolita, but I love the doe-foot-applicator shape on this product, and I’m gonna go out on a limb and say it’s the longest wearing out of all the liquid lipsticks I’ve tried. Prepare for a review on this.
Olive Coloured Eyeshadow – I’ve been using more colours for the past few weeks and adore using the ‘Bliss’ Olive green shade from my Drenched Metals palette. It feels autumnal and wintery, but is a bit different to the browns and coppers I’ve been reaching for for months.
Things I’ve Been Watching
Dr Strange – First time I’ve ever fell asleep in the cinema. Storyline was a snoozefest. Shame as I really like Benedict Cumberbatch, I just didn’t warm to the character and thought it was a bit of a flop.
Westworld – Not normally my kinda jam, anything western themed is normally not up my alley. But this is so good. If you’ve not been watching Westworld and want to find something to replace a Game of Thrones gap in your life I’d thoroughly recommend.
Grey’s Anatomy – Thank god this is back on a Wednesday, now Great British Bake Off has finished. Wednesday’s would have felt like a complete let down otherwise! I feel like there needs to be some big changes this season to keep the story line moving forward, I enjoyed last season but at times it felt like there was little progression – after 10 series with the characters I need something more (but definitely not giving up on it either, I’m too far in).
Prison Break – We’ve not watched as much this week as Ben’s been late home from work for a few days – but we’re finally closing near to the end of season 4 and finding out what happens in the end. Looking forward to finishing it now so it means we can binge on something new (probably Stranger Things).
