NEW Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner Review and Swatches

Oh mi oh my!
Well this is exciting stuff! I have been a massive fan of the original Benefit Push Up Liner and think it makes the application of gel eyeliner so much faster and easier. So, when I checked my emails the other morning to see the new coloured collection had been released, I was too excited for something as meaningless as eyeliner.

I have the shade Beyond Purple as I have green eyes and the two colours are well known to compliment each other. I don't know if my black eyeliner has dried up slightly to give this effect but I  have found that the formula is easier to apply to the eyelid than my original Push Up Liner (which I also love!)
The tip of the eyeliner is flexible but doesn't bend too much and makes application easier than using a brush or felt tip eyeliner and achieving the seemingly impossible even eyeliner flick is far easier and so fast - in fact I had to leave the house ASAP when my eyeliner arrived so I definitely had to test the ease and speed of using this eyeliner and I was really impressed with the results.

(I apologize for the state of my eyebrows :s)

This picture was taken after around 6 hours of wearing and also running 4K and then when I went in the shower afterwards, it took my Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish to remove it - it is certainly waterproof and long lasting - great for summer. 

Finally, the colour; I have had lots of fun experimenting with this eyeliner and I think the colour is the perfect balance of bright and dark - it isn't in your face but is lighter and more fun than just black - particularly during the summer months.  I've done quite a few eye make up looks since getting this product which I might post soon!

Hope you enjoyed this post! Thanks for reading,

Sixth Form Tips

Hi everyone!

If you're in the UK you might be preparing for GCSE results day (good luck) and there's a good chance you'll be planning on starting sixth form in September - you may have already had an induction day or week.

A few of you have messaged me on Instagram asking for tips about how to approach Sixth Form so I figured it was a concern for a reasonable amount of readers. Beginning P16 can be quite daunting and I wasn't really sure what to expect so I've put together this post to give you some tips that I've discovered over my time studying A Levels.

First up, a little bit of (school) background on me just in case you're new here: I'm a 17 nearly 18 year old about to start Y13 in September at a Sixth Form in a school in North East Derbyshire (although for arguments sake we'll just say near Sheffield). I have been at the school since Y7 however the Sixth Form is quite separate from the rest of the school and so nobody walks in to A Levels knowi…

The Books That Made Me

I'm a bookworm and proud. Before I made my YouTube channel private, I made a video defending the Twilight books (or rather all books) using the collection to argue my case that if a book gets someone to read, don't shame them for reading it. I stick by that absolutely. Any reading is beneficial to a person's development, especially when that person is a child.

I've been putting off writing this post for a while because quite frankly choosing my favourite books through the years is like choosing a favourite child and it's far too difficult. Therefore, please note that not all of my favourite books will be in here.

So maybe you're looking for some holiday reading material, inspiration for books to read to younger children or just fancy reading a nice, wholesome blog post. Here is my life through books.

An Opportunity to Reflect and Say Thank You

Since starting A2, time has been rather limited, hence the lack of blog posts recently. With Christmas and New Year fast approaching, I thought I would take a moment to reflect on 2017 and summarise some of the best moments of the year.

My time at home is quickly coming to an end; in September, all being well, I'll be off to university. I didn't realise until quite recently how much I take for granted while I am living at home. This year has been a year of change and a year to grow up, turning 18 has made me realise just how soon independence is going to come.

Perhaps it is this growing independence that has caused 2017 to be the busiest and most eventful year to date. It's been a year of exams and planning and looking around universities and opportunities. Yet it's also been a year in which I feel as though I've appreciated the incredible friends around me.

Without further ado, here are just a few highlights of 2017.

This trip seems like a lifetime ago ye…
