Studs & Spikes

Hello there!

So as I'm sure we all know, Studs & Spikes are in right now and have been making appearances all over the place. So I thought I'd share with you some pictures that I've seen and loved on Tumblr over the past few months...

Again I'd just like to repeat that NONE of these photos belong to me, I found them all on Tumblr :)
If you have Tumblr, why don't you follow me? Link at the side xo

OOTD + My Everyday Face

Hi guys! ^_^

Just a quick post to show you what I wore today and my 'makeup'. I put makeup in inverted commas because it's not a full face, but it's what I always do when I'm going to uni or going out somewhere I don't need to dress up too much.
My outfit today was really casual. I think that's the best way to describe the way I dress, I tend to only dress up when I need to eg. parties, dinner etc.

 Leather jacket - H&M
Jumper - H&M
Jeans - Topshop
Plimsoles - New Look

These are the products I use on a regular basis. I use the concealer under my eyes and use my kabuki brush to blend it in. I use the Maybelline gel liner to do a simple wing and apply two (or three) coats of Maybelline Colossal Cat Eyes mascara. I wait for them to dry and spray Fix +. Then I moisturise my lips with Carmex lip balm and apply my lipstick (info about the MAC products can be found here.)

And this is the finished look!

Red Lippy

I know... It's been over a week since my last post! :O

In my defence I had two assignments due in last week and now I have exams to revise for. Saying that, I'm not gonna stop blogging completely during exam period but I just won't post as often.

Anyway, on to the good stuff! I've recently (well not recently, but hey!) purchased two red lipsticks one matte and the other... shiny? Glossy? I don't know what it's called but it's not matte :)

I went out looking for a red matte lipstick which was why I bought the Sleek one first, and then got the MUA (Makeup Academy) one after. The Sleek one is really matte! I didn't realise it was going to that matte. If you're thinking of purchasing it, I highly recommend moisturising your lips thoroughly before applying it so that it glides on and doesn't tug.

 Sleek True Colour lipstick - Stiletto £3.99 

MUA - Shade 1 £1

The lipstick from MUA was a lot cheaper and to be honest, I liked it a lot more. Even though it isn't matte, it's not too shiny and it glides on when I apply it. It is a bit darker than the Sleek one as you can see in these swatches...

MUA on the left and Sleek on the right (excuse my dirty watch lol)

...but I still love it!

I've heard a lot about Ruby Woo by MAC so that's a product I would really like to try out. I might purchase it as a present to myself after exams :)

What's your favourite red lipstick? Or any lipstick for that matter!
