Sleepy Sunday – trying new cheap make up

Hey soapies ,

So I went into home bargains which is amazing ! If you have not been in it it’s worth a look ( don’t grab a basket you will leave with a bag full ! ) . They also have an online website which does not have everything but some of their products on there .

Now I did a bit of a bad thing for me I bought some cheap 99p make up and the reason why it’s bad is because those of you who remember know the last time I used cheap 99p make up ( mascara – w7) it caused me too become allergic too mascara haha ! But I did try again this time with lipstick and foundation.

Now I used the Olivia hale make up and I bought a lipstick which I thought would wow . A rich purple ! ( lush colour !) . The packaging is not much different too maybeline however the product you can tell is cheap. The lipstick is hard too apply as the top is tiny . Probably best too use a lip brush but it’s still annoying and the product easily smudges … huge problem when all you had was a drink but it looks like you’ve kissed about 20 times ! Soo sadly what I thought would be my next make up sensation isn’t .

But …

I bought the Olivia Hale foundation and oh too the m g it’s great . It’s just like my mac make up , very similar colour and texture and is great for all over coverage . The top is in fact easier than most foundations as it’s a tube top . I really recommend this foundation and is the best cheap foundation . It out does my Poundland foundation .

What’s your cheap products your amazed with ? Let me know xo love Soap x

Sunday – seacret age defying revive eye serum sample 

Hello soapies,

Today’s post is on a tester I recieved a while back. First off the packaging is neat and looks like an elegant expensive brand.

The product itself comes out clear but is oily and I just feel that let’s it down however I can feel the effects of it . Therefore it is good . It makes me feel more awake too. 

Have you used a sample you loved or found anything oily ? Let me know . Soap xx

Sleepy Sundays-mini mirror

So happy Father’s Day !

If you don’t know , I love cath kidston so much . It’s a shop that I love to go in and just simply want it all .

If you need a mirror in a hurry pop into a cath kidston store because this little mirror was only £2 and adds a dash of colour to your bag. What’s your mirror like ? Do you use one ?

Sleepy Sunday – bare minerals mineral veil 

Hey soapies,

This is a little different today is a product I feel isn’t worth a purchase ( I know … something I’ve never said ).

You see we all hear that some products are amazing when simply they are not .

This product today is the bare minerals mineral veil . It’s meant to be a brilliant product with stand out qualities however I feel it lacks that . 

My skin doesn’t shine or have a natural glow and sadly it’s given me spots 😦 the colour isn’t really for me too . What do you think ? Love soap xx

Sleepy Sunday – how to save money on your shopping 

Helloooo soapies ,

Ever wanted to save some money on your shopping ? Well here’s my steps to saving money ! 

1. Coupons – 

As simple as it sounds coupons will save you money . There are many coupon apps out there but also some websites do have them and always check local papers however do be money smart and think about the item that has that mark down price !

2. Apps- 

As I mentioned apps can help . I use mySupermarket to save money and know what shops are cheaper . Do you use an app and if so what? 

3. Cards-

Some stores have cards that will save you money for instance Superdrug do a beauty card which works out eventually as money . Nectar card is also a great one to have ! 

4. Timing –

Going into shops on a certain day at certain times actually can get you cheaper products for instance an hour before closing most supermarkets reduce bakery items to 10 p ! Also supermarkets often reduce the hot food items between 7 and 8 pm ! 

5. Bulk-

Buying in bulk can save you money in the long run however you have to really think do you need that many items . I feel sometimes this isn’t a smart move .

What’s your money saving tips? Lots of love soap xx

Sleepy Sunday – top 5 favourite items for may

Hey soapies,

In no particular order I picked 5 items that I used a lot / loved in may. It was a hard choice but I think I choose some pretty great products ☺️

In no particular order – 

1. Eyeko London – fat eyestick smoke – 

For me I always wanted a really nice smokey eye and I never could master it however with this stick I can accomplish it . The way the eyestick moves is brilliant with an excellent finish … so why not try it yourself today ? 

2. Topshop lipstick – legend –

This pretty pink colour is something I’ve never had before but I love pink now ! It’s a great stand out colour which makes you look super trendy and cool . I have never tried the topshop lipsticks before however I heard fantastic reviews and I honestly think this is by far one of my fav lipsticks ever ☺️☺️!!

3. Soap and glory – sexy motherpucker- in shade Pom Pom –

Yes you have probably heard enough about this gorgeous lipstick and are bored of me saying it’s great sooo I’ll leave it there… but definitely worth the purchase ! 

4. Make up gallery – ivory 1 – foundation 

From Poundland and an amazing liquid foundation I really love mixing two of the foundations together it suits my skin and I really do think it’s worth the pound !! 

5. The vegetarian by Han Kang –

Captivating . I couldn’t think of a better word for this book . It definitely is something completely different to what I have ever read and really intrigues you as the reader . It is by far now my favourite book . Some say they can not get into it but once you have read the first few pages you are taken into a world of art ,lies and lust . You as the reader are thrown through each characters life . I can not say anymore other than giving this book away but this is something completely of its own . Really love this book . 

So that’s it for this months favourites , what was yours ? Lots of love soap xx

Sleepy Sunday : is Poundland make up worth that pound ? 

Hey soapies ,

I’m back with a new product . I bought a wide variety of foundations from Poundland . This is my personal view so no hate … we all have our opinions! 

The make up gallery make up has stared at me so many times and said “buy me !” But I was resistant until a few days ago when I purchased foundations from Poundland .

Okay yes it was a pound and I’m not looking for an amazing foundation that would cost double that dirt cheap but I really wanted to see what makes this a little ( a lot !!!!) cheaper than my Mac and Rimmel foundations .

1. The bottle size is smaller than most foundations

2. No fancy packaging 

3. No fancy name 

4. The colours don’t Range that much 

5. The thickness 

6. How long it lasts

However the shade ivory 1 looks amazing on me and I honestly think I may use this as a base later to my Mac ! 

It makes me glow and I really think you should take a look in Poundland . What’s your thoughts ? Let me know lots of love soap xoxo ps what you doing this Sunday?
