Music Mondays Appears Again?!

Hi my wonderful readers, I am back, after a week or something (I'm sorry, I don't quite remember how long exactly) and I decided hey what ever happened to my music posts? So I thought, maybe I should start "Music Mondays" again, that way you guys will always have a post at least once a week and obviously additional posts throughout the week.

I'm going to mention about 2-3 favourites at the moment. The first being Sam Smith. I mean, I've always loved his sheer talent and that beautiful voice of his. I love a lot of his songs but at the moment I have been absolutely adoring "Latch". Now the video below is actually a remix that is quite popular. It's the Disclosure remix and it's actually how I first song and so I decided to slot it in. I've really been into techno/house type music lately so I managed to stumble onto this, realise the vocals are Sam Smith and then heard the original and was in awe of his talent. Do check it out, both the original and the remix are amazing!

Next is another "boy group" and as you all may know from my previous music posts, I have a certain soft spot for groups of heavenly voiced guys. This here is IM5.

Time for names! Left to right: Will, Dana, Gabe, Dalton and Cole.

Now I will tell you guys now, unfortunately Dalton has left the group to reunite with his old "rock" (I think) band called Fly Away Hero. I guess he kind of got bored of the pop and wanted to go back to where his heart belongs. So the new member is David (who looks a lot like Gabe) but meh, I don't know why but I'm not that fond of him but yeah. And below is a mash up they did of the best 2013 songs.

And that is all I have for this week. If anyone has any type of music for me to review etc, let me know and now I shall talk to you guys real soon :) xoxo

New Lipsticks!

Hi guys, I'm sorry it's been a while again but today I decided to write a beauty post, since I haven't in a while. I went to Superdrug (a drugstore in the UK) to buy new dry shampoo and saw bargain priced lipsticks for £1 each. The brands were MUA and Revolution and I knew I had to grab some so I got 1 from MUA and 2 from Revolution. So I shall be doing some swatches and first impressions of them today!

So the first one is called Rebel With Cause by Revolution
Initially, I thought "Oh god this isn't going to be very pigmented" because when I swatched it on my hand with one swipe, it was quite sheer. But once I put it on my lips, I fell in love. The texture is perfectly smooth and so far it is one of few lipsticks that don't feel drying on my lips without the use of a lip balm. I shall even insert a picture here of how it looked on me because I loved it so much that I wore it out, when I literally only went out to go shopping with my mom haha.
As you can see from this picture and the lip swatch above, the colour is quite bright but I still see it as a "Vamp" colour in some ways. It is a lot brighter than how it looks in the bullet which is what shocked me but I was pleasantly shocked. 

The next lipstick is 100% Vamp also from Revolution. 
Now in the bullet, it looks pretty much like a black lipstick but once it's on your lips, it has more of a black cherry vibe to it. Now this one, I didn't like as much just because it took around 2-3 coats to get it to the colour in the lip swatch. But it is still a pretty colour and I do see myself hopefully wearing it once Autumn hits us a bit more. 

The last one is Wild Berry from Make Up Academy.
This is a matte lipstick and it was the most problematic out of the three. I don't typically have issues with mattes as long as my lips are smooth! And for once, they were yet I don't know why it didn't glide on the smoothest nor did it feel all that nice. So I don't know how often I'll be wearing it but it is a really nice colour so I hope I can get used to the way it feels.

And that is all for today my beauties. I hope you enjoyed this post and do let me know if you like these kind of posts but for now, I bid you goodnight (or good morning or good afternoon). Talk to you all soon :) xoxo
