Review: Stila Baked Trio Eyeshadow in 'Bronze Glow'

Welcome back to my blog everyone! As you may have seen in my collective beauty haul, I purchased this gorgeous product, the Stila Baked Trio Eyeshadow in the shade 'Bronze Glow' and figured I'd do a little review.



First off, left me just say how cute this packaging is!





In the one that I have, it comes in a brown cardboard-like packaging but it is now also available in an aluminum compact. There is a little plastic disc that it was placed in to protect the eyeshadow from breaking. I would suggest leaving the disc on for obvious reasons.


This eyeshadow has three colours that range from light to dark and can be applied wet or dry. Although I am not usually a fan of eyeshadows with a lot of shimmer, but I like the variation in neutrals because as you all know, I love neutral eyeshadows! The result is sheer and the website describes it as ''...bright and boasts a high pearl content for gorgeous sheer shimmer. The trio features three different shades for use; the lightest a…

I Don't Wear Makeup To Impress You | Collab with Ella Houghton

I started wearing makeup when I was around 13 years old. It was basically the birth of Avril Lavigne's music; you know, where everyone wore too much eyeliner, ties as belts, chipped black nail polish and pretended like they were in the 'Skater Boy' music video. Makeup, at that age, was something I (and many others) did to fit in. Something to prove that you were 'getting older'. The transition stage from being a child to a teenager. 
15 was the year I discovered how much I actually liked makeup. I was always interested in it, but now it was more of a hobby than it was a trend. It was also the year that girls in my school were getting a lot of backlash for wearing makeup or for even expressing interest in it. It was almost as if wearing makeup meant you were self-centered or unintelligent. That was three years ago and at least some things have changed. 
For one, people have become a bit more open minded regarding the reason as to why people like to wear makeup. You se…

Top 5 Lip Products | Collab with Veena from MakeUp World by Veena

Hello everybody! I am doing a lovely little collab with the gorgeous Veena from MakeUp World by Veena. Here are my Top 5 lip products, drugstore and high end, from lip liners to liquid lipsticks! 



The first product I have is this stunning lipstick from Essence in the shade 'Barely There'.  

This is my go-to everyday lipstick. It's a gorgeous, pigmented lipstick that lasts up to 7 hours.  I love that it is moisturizing without drying my lips out.

The second lip product is the Urban Decay Ultra Nourishing lipgloss in 'Sesso'. 

This was originally in the Naked On The Run palette that I bought a few months back. I love using this product - it's super creamy and very luxurious. It feels incredibly light and gives a slight plumping effect. 

The third product is a lipliner from Catrice in the shade Holly Rose Wood.

I love, love, love this product and I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is just starting out with lipliner. This is super long lasting and the perfec…

Chit Chat #1: Universities, Leaving Student Council and Collaborating with Bloggers From All Over The World?!

Hello guys! Today is a bit of a relaxed/chit chat type post. I'm sure that you can tell what this post is all about, so let's just get straight into it.  

Things have been changing a lot in my personal life recently, so blogging is going to have to take a back seat for at least another two weeks. This is not entirely by choice, but I have to prioritize. If I could, I would blog all day long. It's a hobby that I am very passionate about and only want to do the best that I can.  I've been busy applying to universities and doing research about them for a while now so of course it's a bit stressful as there's a lot to get done - this is the same for school. I am currently a senior in high school and I'm an IB Diploma Candidate, so I'm hella busy right now. I will have a Valentine's Collab up by the end of this week though. 
I've been getting this question a lot and I'm just going to clear it up. Everyone's been asking me why I quit Student Cou…

January Favourites

Welcome back to my blog everyone!  Today I am just posting about my absolute go-to beauty products for the month of January, so here they are in no particular order:


1. Revlon ColourStay Foundation in 'Toast'

This definitely makes my January favourites list because the colour matches my skin perfectly. I was pleasantly surprised with this product as I barely find a foundation with a medium coverage that matches my skin. The best thing about this product is that not only is it super long-lasting, but it also contains SPF! 

2. LA Girl Matte Flat Pigment Gloss in 'Fleur'

I love liquid lipsticks, so I was super excited to try this one out! I wrote a review about it which you can read here

3. Catrice Illuminating Highlighter Pen

This is my favourite drugstore highlighter! It gives my skin a gorgeous, healthy glow and a dewy finish which I have recently been loving these past few months. This is a great tool if you are someone who likes strobing. It also looks wonderful when paired…
