£1 MAC Velvet Teddy dupe?!

Hey guys, first of all I'll apologise for not blogging in a while, I felt like I needed a break and I didn't have many post ideas, but today I'm back showing you my MAC Velvet Teddy dupe. 

The dupe I've found is MUA's matte lipstick in the shade fawn fancy. 

The MUA one is £1... Which is £14.50 cheaper than MAC's. 
First of all, packing wise, MAC is always a winner with the sleek black bullet packaging. The MUA packaging does look quite cheap and is made of plastic but that doesn't change the lipstick quality. 
Onto the colour, they are basically identical. Velvet teddy is just slightly darker, although the pigmentation of them both is the same. 
The application of Velvet teddy is slightly smoother, and looks smother on the lips, whereas the MUA one is quite sticky to apply and can cling to dry lips. They both have a very matte finish. 
Finally, the staying power of Velvet teddy is much better. It stays on the lips for a few hours, whereas the MUA one only lasts for around half an hour and it starts fading. 
Overall, I think the MUA lipstick is a great one to buy first of all to test out the colour (which is what I bought it for) and then go on to buy MAC Velvet teddy. 

I hope you all enjoyed this post!

MAC Brave

Hey guys! So today I'm going to be reviewing my Mac lipstick in the shade brave. I've done one other Mac lipstick review in the past which you can find here.

It's a lovely pinky nude shade, with a satin finish which is probably one my favourites. The colour makes it perfect for any time of the year, whether it's Summer or Winter, due to it being so versatile. This is such a wearable colour for day or night, and goes with a variety of eye makeup looks. It lasts on the lips for around 2 hours before it needs re applying. When applying it it's very creamy, and it dries fairly matte but with a slight glittery sheen, and it doesn't settle into the fine lines of your lips. It fades very well and evenly as it doesn't leave the awkward lines around the outsides of your lips like some do. 
As always with Mac, the packaging is beautiful and very sophisticated. 
Overall, I think this lipstick would suit anyone and it's a great one to have in your collection because of it being so versatile. 

I hope you all enjoyed this post!
What's your favourite Mac lipstick shade?

What I got for Christmas 2015!

Hey guys! I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and new year! I know I'm quite late doing this post, but I wanted to enjoy my Christmas with my family. Also a lot of people on Twitter said they wanted this post, so I thought I'd do it, and I also love reading my own back after a few months. I've been really lucky this Christmas, and I'm so grateful to all of my friends and family for all of my presents, cards and to everyone else for the happy Christmas messages. 

First of all from my parents I got 3 books I've wanted for ages: Vicky Pattison's 'a Christmass kiss' and 'All that glitters' and Gaz Beadle's autobiography. Can you tell I'm a fan of Geordie shore?! Haha. 

I also got a beautiful rose gold Michael Kors watch which I've wanted for ages, and a phone case. 

I got a lovely little River Island bag along with a matching purse!

One of my favourite presents from my parents was this lovely Pink tracksuit!

I also got this lovely Starbucks cup, and 3 pieces of fudge- the sea salted caramel tastes amazing!!

They also bought me some Mac products I've been wanting for ages: velvet teddy lipstick along with soar lip liner, and a nail varnish in the shade cocktail hour which is a beautiful glittery rose gold. 

Finally from my parents I got a lovely photo frame and a set of bubble baths which all look amazing!!

In my stocking I got a battery toothbrush and some whitening tooth paste, some garnier micellar water, a body spray, a hair mask sachet, sprinkle of glitter's 2016 diary (which is so pretty!), some pens and sharpie highlighters, a nail soaking tray which I think will make taking nail varnish off so much easier, some feet warmer socks and a Victoria secret voucher which I was so happy about. 

In my family secret Santa I got this really pretty Victoria secret makeup bag. 

From my nan and grandad I got Zoella's rose gold toiletry bag, and her bath fizzers which I absolutely love the jar they're in!

I also got these lovely piglet pjs as I love piglet (they're from boohoo by the way!) Along with some fluffy socks and a black tangle teezer. 

Next I got this makeup revolution brow kit, it has so many different products in, including brow stencils, so I know this will make my brow life easier!

I also got a pink hair dryer, which I couldn't take a photo of as the box is massive!

Finally from my nan and grandad I got this beautiful 'A' Pandora charm. 

From my auntie, uncle and cousins, i got this body shop gift with a body butter and shower gel in the scent frosted cranberry, along with a glitter spray and some pug socks!

From one of my friends I got this lovely shopping funds money box, and a body shop sponge. 

I also got some other things from other friends including a lot of chocolate which I didnt include as the post would be even longer and I've ate a lot of it!

I hope you've all enjoyed this post!
