100 Layers of Makeup

Recently on my YouTube channel, I did the 100 layers of makeup challenge. I did 100 layers of foundation, 100 layers on liquid lipstick and 100 layers of filling in my eyebrows. It took so long to do so many layers of makeup but I did it in the end and it actually was kind of fun. In case you haven't seen the video yet, then here it is:
I hope you enjoy the video. If you do, it would mean a lot if you would subscribe to my channel for free to hear when I put out new videos. I hope you are all having a great day and I'll talk to you soon.

Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer Review

If you been reading my blog for a while then you will probably know by now that I've been on the hunt for the "ultimate" concealer for a while. I found some pretty great ones but I've still kept looking for the least expensive, best quality concealer. Today, I am reviewing the Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer in the colour light. This is a concealer that I wanted for quite a while before I actually got it. I got it in Boots for €13.50. I feel like it's a pretty mid-range concealer in terms of its price. It's not as cheap as something like the Collection concealer but it's not as expensive as something like the Bobbi Brown one. 
One thing I love about this concealer is that you get an entire package for your money, not just a tube of concealer. It comes in a hard circular case which not only holds the concealer, but powder to set it with and a small mirror to look in when you are fixing your makeup. You also get two different shades of concealer, a yellow toned one, and a pink toned one. I love the packaging in terms of its design and it is so handy when you are on the go. It's the perfect concealer for travelling. 
Now onto the actual concealer and its quality. The concealer is quite thick so it does have quite a bit of coverage, I'd say at least medium coverage if not high. Not only are they thick but they are quite creamy so they are easy to blend in, and you don't need to worry about rushing to blend them in before  they dry out. I am kind of obsessed with the yellow toned shade, it's probably the main reason why I like this set so much. I don't really use the pink shade that much because I think it is supposed to be used under your eyes, and I prefer to use the yellow shade for that. One of the only downsides of these concealers is that they aren't very close to my skin tone and sometimes need to be sorta mixed with foundation to look right on my face. I've found that it lasts quite well on my skin (Normal/combination) although I've heard that it fades quite quickly on oily skin so If you have oily skin this might not be the concealer for you. 
Here are some swatches of the products:
Overall, I really like this concealer, mostly for covering my dark circles above anything else. They are good coverage, and they come with a mirror and a powder to set them. I love the packaging and it is so easy to travel with. It could be cheaper but I feel like you do get quite a lot for the price. This is one of the better concealers that I've used and I would definitely recommend it. Have you ever tried this concealer? Let me know in the comments below.

A Pretty Big Beauty Haul from Superdrug | Huge Savings

Today I have another Superdrug haul for you guys. I got some really good deals so I went a little overboard and bought a lot more than I set out to but I was really happy with what I got. So here are all of the products that I bought:
One of the first things I got was the Superdrug own brand Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser. I've seen this before in Superdrug and thought it sounded pretty cool. I got it for around €6 and I'm excited to try it out and see if it's any good. One of the great things about a haul like this is that it means I have loads of products that I can write reviews for, and I'm looking forward to writing a review of this product.
Next, I picked up some oval Cotton Wool Pads to remove my makeup with because these are really handy and way easier to use than tissue paper.
After that, I got a new highlighter which I think is from Makeup Revolution. This highlighter is so pretty. I can't wait to write a review of it so that I can show you it properly. This was around €6 aswell.
Next, I got another Makeup Revolution palette and guys.. I'm actually the biggest idiot.. I bought an Ultra Cream Contour Palette. If you have read my review of the Ultra Cream Contour Palette then you will know that I already have one! This is how ridiculous I get on shopping sprees, I mean I completely forgot that I already had it.. *facepalm* Anyway, I guess I will just have to do a giveaway of the second one for you guys because I don't need two :P
Anyway, moving on. The next thing I got was another Vanilla Kisses body spray from Impulse. I bought one of these a month or two ago and I really love it so I thought I would get another one since they were half-price (€1.20).
After that, I bought two Makeup Revolution Sprays; an aqua priming base and a makeup fixing spray. I've seen them before and wondered if they were any good so I decided to try them.
Next, is one of the biggest bargains that I got in this haul. Basically, one of the girls working there gave me the heads up that this product had gone down so much even though it was still priced as normal. It's Superdrug intensive protecting serum to fight the first signs of ageing, and these are normally about €13 but I got it for only €1.68. I figured I had to try it for that price. Later I realised that it's made for people who are 25+ but I'm not far off that so I guess I can still use it.
Then, I got a new Nivea Double Effect Eye Makeup Remover because I love it for removing eye makeup and it was better than half price (€2.45) I have already written a review of this product if you would like to check it out.
Next, I got two MUA foundations for just €1.35 each. I'm really intrigued to find out whether a foundation that cheap is any good but I'll keep you posted.
After that, I got a Gosh lipstick and lip liner. I've never tried any Gosh products before so I thought I'd start with lip products. (Also, I think there was buy one get the second half price or something). I got a lipstick in the colour 161 Sweetheart and a lip liner to match. I had a sort of Kylie Jenner lip in mind when I got these and that's why I chose these colours. 
Next, I got a really deep purple lipstick called Blindfolded from Makeup Revolution for €3.15. I have so many shades of lipstick that I'm always trying to find something that's different from what I already have and I don't think I have any lipsticks like this one. 
And lastly, I got some nail polishes from Lottie London. I've never tried this brand but I really like their packaging and they have loads of gorgeous nail colours. The colours I chose were a light grey called classy-gal and a light pink called hit refresh. These were €5.35.
I also got a Lottie London Gel Effect nail polish which was €8.35 and makes your nail polish last a lot longer. I've already tried this and it really does work but I'll make sure to write a proper review of it soon. 
So that was everything that I bought! I'm not gonna lie, I wasn't in my right mind when I bought most of these I was just caught up in the bargains and didn't really think about what I was doing. I ended up getting everything for only like €60 which wasn't that bad considering how much I got. That's the end of my shopping sprees for a while haha.  Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this post.

One of the Best Ways to Be Motivated to Get Fit | My Workout Gear Wishlist

best way to motivate yourself to go to the gym
When it comes to new years resolutions or people setting new goals for themselves, getting fit or losing weight seems to be one of the most popular. Most people want to tone up some bit or lose a few extra pounds. The main obstacle that stands in our way is motivation. We say that we will start tomorrow or next week or next month. We just keep putting it off. 

One of the biggest reason I put off going to the gym is that I feel I just look disgusting in my baggy workout gear with my hair up and a bright red face. I just feel awkward leaving the house like that even though I really enjoy being at the gym on my favourite machine. I feel a gym makeover would really help me to feel confident when going to the gym and give me a bit of extra motivation. So I headed over to boohoo.com to take a look at their boohoo fit range. I found a couple of items that I really liked so I put together a gym gear wishlist (image above) of the new workout clothes that I'd like to get. Here are the links to the items in case you are interested in any of them:


2. Alisha Squat Goals Running Vest - boohoo.com (€14)

3. Scarlett Love Hoody & Jogger Set - boohoo.com (€27)

4. Work Slogan Sports Bra & Work Slogan Running Leggings - boohoo.com (€14) & (€19)


What I love the most about all these items is how affordable they are. It's great because you can look great at the gym without breaking the bank. New gym gear is always a great way to renew your motivation for working out and I can't wait to buy some new gym stuff soon. I hope you enjoyed this post. If you did then make sure to love it on Bloglovin or give it a +1 on Google Plus. Also, make sure to leave a comment below telling me what motivates you to go to the gym or workout. I hope you are having a great day and I'll talk to you soon.

A Trip To The Zoo | Bioparc Fuengirola

Recently, I went on a 10 day holiday to Fuengirola in Spain with my family. We had an amazing time. During our trip, we went to a zoo called Bioparc Fuengirola and saw loads of different types of animals. So I thought that for today's post, I would show you some of my favourite pictures that I took at the zoo. Here they are:
(How cute was the baby monkey and flamingo?) Anyway, I hope you liked this post. It's a bit of a change from the normal stuff I post but it's nice to have a change every so often and I really love how the pictures came out. This zoo is supposed to be one of the best zoos in Europe and I definitely enjoyed my time there even though it was a bit small compared to some of the other zoos I've been to. Some of my family thought it was a bit overrated but I would recommend going there if you're in the area and like animals. I hope you are having a great day and I'll talk to you soon.
