Branching out to appeal to new customers, Funko announced that they are collaborating with Disney to create a Villain inspired collection with a twist. Not the usual Funko figurines to be seen here, but a collectible makeup palette stylized in the famous style 3D rendering of the selected villain head. Confirmed so far are 4 Villains. Read more to see what Villains are part of this collaboration and to take a deeper look into the collection.
During an intimate event with Kat Von D I was kindly gifted their Dagger Liner to try out, which is a similar format to the Tattoo Liner but t an angle. I did not get on with the Tattoo Liner originally due to the applicator being a little chunky for me to apply thin lines with, so I was excited to see if this applicator worked better for me. The formula is very similar to the Tattoo Liner, so if you are a fan favourite of this cult product or like me, longed for something thinner, this might be for you!
Acids are widely talked about recently and are O K A Y for your skin. I’m going to try my best for you all to at the end of this hopefully understand acids and maybe try one out for yourself without being scared of the word acid and the thought of it going on your face. They all have different purposes for each skin type, texture, look, and overall condition of how your skin looks and could be your answer for a concern you have.
If you think about it, we use acidic products every day and even eat them. Do you think twice about eating an orange? That’s Citric Acid, a great source of Vitamin C.
They come in different strengths, formulations, prices and textures and I will be honest, all are trial and error as with all skincare items. I will try and break it down as simply as I can from what I have learned over time while working with these products and what ones could suit you best. With any skincare it’s about maintaining a routine to see a difference.
I have studied makeup and skincare to a professional level, however please do your own further research and only use this as a guideline as the majority of my research has been done through my own studies while gently touching upon these acids in my studies in class.

I’ve recently been using up some old bits of makeup and revisiting some cult classics I have purchased from the influence of others or just from curiosity. Remember when everyone went crazy over Nyx Lip Lingerie? When no one knew how to pronounce lingerie, or knew it was a french word for underwear? How they were a dead ringer for some Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits, and everyone would suck shot glasses to get big, voluptuous lips? Today, we are revisiting that, minus triple the size lips or getting bruises from shot glasses.
You can still purchase these for £7!
Read on to see why everyone wanted these lipsticks and hear my thoughts!
I always struggle to feel inspired when finding new makeup and try to look in places you wouldn’t usually look, such as your go to beauty destinations, like Boots, Debenhams and Superdrug. You can usually find great deals and offers in these places at competitive prices and if you’re willing to try new brands or be pleasantly surprised at finding brands you already know and love. Here’s my favourite places to have a mooch around in when I look for new makeup buys.
While at the Kat Von D Blogger Event I was given the opportunity to try a Lock It Foundation. This is something I had been dying to try for years as I had heard friends and bloggers online rave about the coverage and lasting power of the foundation.
The shade range available ranged from very pale to deep tones so there is definitely an option for almost everyone. If your shade is slightly off tone, you can mix the Lock It Concealers in to get your perfect shade.
Time trialled; 7 months
Shade chosen; Light Neutral 45
Cruelty free; Yes
Looking at my mascara collection I realised I do need to branch out and try some more brands and mascara typed. Mascara and I do have a slight love hate relationship, as I have very oily lids and under eye area, meaning 90% of the time I sport the panda look without intention of playing fancy dress.
I have been looking at mascara primers and wanted to start with those to use up mascara that were lacking va-va-boo, so purchased the newest L’oreal Paradise Lash Primer.
These are it’s claims:
2 in 1 primer, that boosts mascara volume and length and cares for lashes.
Lashes have the appearance of being soft and feather like, and be stronger and more conditioned.
Ingredients to note:
Jojoba oil to nourish.
Panthenol to encourage lashes to grow.
Rose canina oil for vitamin A and E to nourish, strengthen and smooth texture.
Time used: 3 months
Other things to note:
Cruelty free: No
Vegan: No, contains beeswax
