My First Colour Pop Order 😻

Good Morning everyone and happy Friday!!!

I received an order I have been eagerly anticipating yesterday and that was my first ever Colour Pop order.

I have been searching for a good liquid concealer for ages now and I never seem to find a shade light enough to use as a highlight! So when CP blew up on the gram with this photograph:

I was super excited, because there is a shade there that is 100% light enough for me!

I went with shade Fair 02, and I also added Fair 00 to my basket and this is because I already have a concealer that is way too dark for me so I plan to lighten it up with the 00 shade 😏! At $6 per shade how could I say no!

Like I wasn’t happy enough, when I clicked on my basket I realised there was something else there, at first I was like huh better delete that because I ain’t paying for something extra… Then I looked at the price and realised it was free!

I just so happened to make my first order while CP was celebrating its 4th birthday and I got this gorgeous creamy eyeshadow too for absolutely nothing!

It doesn’t even end there because I got $5 off my first order because I signed up to their mailing list, I meannnn 🤩. In total I paid around $10 for my items including shipping to the UK

The outside of the box simply said ‘Made in LA’ but the inside of the box really bought the partayyy!

I am so impressed with the whole service!

I will do a more detailed review of the concealers but just look at the shimmer on the shadow…

Can’t wait to use them all properly! I am really impressed with my first overseas shipment of makeup!

I hope you enjoyed today’s post guys! Let me know your thoughts on Colour Pop and what I should order next time!

DIY: Body Lava 🤩

Hey everyone!

If you’re anything like me, then you love a highlighter, and you’d also love a body lava if you could afford one 😒!

So I came across such a simple hack on the internet that I just had to try it for myself! (Would love to insert credit here but I saw the video on Facebook and can’t seem to find it again!) So today I’m going to show you how to create your very own two ingredient body lava!

First you will need a small container, it doesn’t really matter what you use for this part it’s just down to preference! I used an old perfume refill bottle for mine!

I filled this bottle with my main ingredient: Baby Oil!

Once I was happy, I picked out a highlighter powder that I wouldn’t mind scraping a little, because this is what you will be adding to your baby oil! I chose my beaut Primark Highlighter palette!

I used the shade glimmer first as you can see by the scrapes haha! I also used the rest of the shades but in a much smaller quantity!

When you’ve finished your scraping, carefully add the mix to your container!

Then SHAKE IT LIKE A POLAROID PIC BOO!

And you should end up with something that looks like this:

How much highlight and what shades you use are completely down to you, it’s your lava so play around with it and see what you think!

My advice would be to start off with a smaller amount of highlight powder, mix it with the oil and then add more until you are happy with the glow it produces!

Here is a video of me pouring it on my skin 😍!

I am in love!

Makeup Monday: White Liner, a Beauty first!🤩

Good Morning! Happy Monday to you all!

I am excited about this post. I am reallllllly excited, because I feel like I have stepped out of my comfort zone with my makeup and done something a little different!

I did a makeup haul recently and I was on the hunt for one item in particular. White Eyeliner. And indeed I found a White Liquid Liner in Superdrug for an amazing £3… I mean what a price.

I am a black liner gal through and through. So white was a whole lot different to what I’m used to but I am so happy with my results!

I’m literally in love with this look. It’s my favourite to date. In terms of application I would say you have to go over the white a lot more than you do with black, this could possibly be to do with the price.

Do you like the little dots I put on my nose? I feel like they add a slightly boho touch.

I think the lip colour fits really well with the look as a whole, using my Primark Liquid Lip Kit, again £3.

I actually felt a little self conscious going out like this, mainly because you don’t see many people out and about rocking the white liner. But I did it anyway, and I actually got so many compliments! Lots of people said I looked really pretty! Which was really nice because generally I wouldn’t class myself as pretty.

Makeup Monday 09: Revolution Pro Eyeshadow Look

Happy Monday bloggers! + My non blogging readers of course!

I went on a little bit of a makeup spending spree over the weekend and as you saw by my Primark Beauty Haul Post! I like to keep my spends cost effective because as you can imagine makeup can be an expensive habit!

I actually got sucked into a stunning Kiko Cosmetics shop where a single eyeshadow will set you back £5.90! The price was reflected in the quality of the makeup, the pigment and texture was out of this world! But if you’re on a budget, luxury has to wait! I will be back though 😏!

Anyway… I picked up this beautiful Revolution Pro Palette for £8!

£8 FOR 18 SHADES ARE U MAD!

I love all of these shades and will post a swatch pic at some point on my Instagram @lollyhm.fashion

So today it’s only right that I show you an eyeshadow look I created using this palette!

I used shades, Riches, Personal and Discrepancy 😍! I only managed to take a few selfies before we went out so sorry you can’t see the whole eye but I think you get the picture 😏. Here’s a video too…

Who do I think I am haha! Peep the matte lip gloss too from my Primark Nude Lip Kit for £3! I think I killed it this month with the bargain buys to be honest!

Let me know what you think!

As always hit that follow button if you think I’m worth it, and if you’re following already, thank you so much I love u 😘!

Primark Beauty Haul 💄

We all know how easy it is to get sucked into the hype surrounding luxury makeup brands 🙄! But today I was determined to rise above labels and head on into my nearest Primark store to see what budget beauty items I could find!

I was so surprised with some of the BOMB things I found! So I put together a lil blog post to show you guys what I bought!

I will be reviewing all of the items in more detail in future posts so look out for those if you wish to see swatches and try on! So, let’s get to it!..

1: Get Lippy Matte Lip Kit

Shade: Flutter Price: £3.00

First of all, what a price for a matte gloss and liner! I quickly tried it out and I love it! I don’t own any other matte glosses though so I don’t have much to compare with! I will 100% show you guys another day because I look rough as hell right now!

2: Eye Candy Metallic Eye Kit

Shade: Bronze Price: £3

This kit looks super gorgeous and it comes with a metallic eyeshadow cream, a matching eye pencil and a precision applicator!

3: Stay All Day, Gel liner.

Colour: Black Price: £1

So this item was reduced from £2 and I have actually ran out of my liquid liner so for £1 I just had to buy it! I love the way the applicator is attached to the lid too!

4: Pure Glow Highlighting Palette

Price: £5

Apparently I can’t resist a highlighter because I couldn’t resist buying some today when I don’t actually need one. I also got over excited and did a swatch so here you go..

From left to right is, Desert, Glimmer, Eden and Firefly. They are amazingly pigmented for the price and I definitely think they could double as eyeshadow!

5: Skin Frost Iridescent glow stick.

Price: £3

This little beauty glows like the packaging so I am really keen to see how I can apply it to my skin!

6: vLuxe Mink Inspired Lash

Style: Gala Price: £6

I mean, say no more these are hands down the most amazing lashes I’ve seen for £6! Like for real, the volume and quality is gorgeous! So I bought two packs! I am so excited to try these out tomorrow!

7: Nudes Stick on Nails

Price: £2:50

Yeah so I grabbed these because they look beaut!

The total price for my beauty haul from Primark came to: £29.50. Which as you know is amazing because you can pay that price and much more for just ONE high end product!

Super excited to try all of this for real!

I was also hoping to buy some foundation or concealer but unfortunately there were no colours anywhere near the shade I needed. They were all way too dark. The foundations had sold and the concealer, although labelled ivory, the sticks definitely looked more ‘soft beige’ to me! So I passed on that part of the experience!

I hope you enjoyed this blog post and I would love to hear your thoughts!

If you’re new to my blog then WELCOME and if you’re a follower then WELCOME BACK!

300 FOLLOWERS! – Thank you from a new blogger 02!

When I started putting WERK into blogging in January, I had no idea I would be celebrating 300 followers so soon!

I guess I just want to say thank you to every one of the people that follow me! Especially the ones who take the time out to interact with me and get to know me more via my blog and Instagram page!

Blogging has changed my life in a few small but significant ways…

  • I make more effort with my appearance.
  • I have something to aspire towards.
  • I have learnt so much! (And not just about makeup!)
  • I have become more confident.

Significant because I am happier because of it!

300 Followers May seem small to some, but I was sat looking at 0 not so long ago so it feels great!

This has been the start of my journey into being more me and caring a lot less about what other people might think!

So I am going to share a sick quote with you (that my Husband shared with me) that has really helped me along in this process.

So next time you tell someone you want to make a living from blogging and they turn their nose up. Give them the middle finger and mic drop this quote on their lap.

Or just think it in your head, y’know, whatever’s best at the time!

And on that note…

I would love to hear from you guys!

If you could take a few moments it would be awesome if you could paste these questions in the comments and answer them and I will be sure to get back to you, and visit your blog of course!

  1. How has blogging changed you?
  2. What has kept you motivated on your journey?
  3. Has it been what you expected?
  4. Is it something you wish to continue?

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Lots of Love
