Weekly Roundup #7

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.

Monday – 10 Products I Regret Buying


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.

Tuesday – The Beauty Bay Event – Meeting Jeffree Star, Patrick Starr, Manny MUA & The Best Goodie Bag… Ever.


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.

Wednesday – Irresistible Me Hair Straighteners Review


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

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).

    I’m still gutted I couldn’t make it to the beauty bay carnival but my goodness I’m so glad you had an amazing time. I can’t wait to read your reviews on all your new goodies.

    I watched Doctor Strange yesterday and it was just ok for me. I didn’t fall asleep but I felt it relied too heavily on CGI. Wasn’t one of my favourites from Marvel.
    I really like your hair braided like in the last photo – cute!

      Yeah it was probably my least favourite from Marvel, when I heard Rachel McAdams was in it too I was excited as I really like her, but she wasn’t involved enough for my liking!
      Ah thanks, I don’t braid it very often as I tend to re-plait it about 200 times in a day when I do!

    Oooh this is such a good idea for when you want to mention little bits that not real a whole blog post worthy… Need to try and get my hands on Jeffre Unicorn blood liquid lipstick. I keep hearing rave reviews 💛

    Too bad about Dr. Strange… The only time I ever fell asleep in the cinema was at a movie I watched in the big screen for the third time (because I accompanied friends who paid for my tickets!). 😛 😛 😛
