P U R E By PS

Primark are back with a brand new make-up line and I’m so excited! Recently Primark’s make-up game has been on another level and there is so many of their products I love and use regularly!. Whenever they come out with new products I usually buy one or two of them and do a review for you guys so here’s my review of P U R E!

I picked up a liquid lipstick & the eyeshadow palette because they were so pretty and I knew I’d get use out of them both!

Also available in the in the line:

A face palette; 3 highlight shades & 1 contour

2 shades of liquid lipsticks

2 shades of single highlighters

A portable mirror

4 shades of liquid highlighters

3 eye pigments

12 shades eyeshadow palette

Liquid lipstick:

I love liquid lipsticks, they are definitely something I always want to get more of because they are amazing and this one definitely falls under amazing. I love the colour so much, you could easily match it with many different eye looks! You could use it for an everyday look or glam it up! The glitter makes it stand out, it applies so good and is definitely one of my favourites. I also loved the packaging and the shape of the bottle it’s so pretty and tops the whole thing off! I would definitely recommend this, and I’m so sorry I didn’t pick up the other shade too!

Eyeshadow palette:

Eyeshadow palette’s are definitely my favourite make-up products, I love them so much, they are always the prettiest!. First, let’s talk about the layout, the shapes are amazing and I just love how they laid it out, it’s beautiful!. The second I opened this palette I fell in love with the colours they were all so beautiful and I could literally picture in my head the amount of eye looks that could be created with this palette. There is so much pigment in each shade and it blends so nicely. The glitter shades are definitely my favourites!. As well as it being hands down a fabulous palette it is also light and what I mean by light is when it’s on it doesn’t feel heavy on your skin or eyes, I find a lot of makeup is like this but not this palette. Also it wipes away nice and easy, you know after a long day of wearing makeup and you can’t wait to go home and just take it off? And when you scrub your eyes so much trying to wipe away the makeup that it starts to hurt and irritate you because of the rubbing? Well not this one! It rubs off so nice and gently and it’s amazing! Only €6 and it’s just amazing!!!

Blogtober starts Monday so I’ll see you then!❤️

My Top 5 Make-up Brands

Happy Mondayyy! So because I just posted a makeup giveaway on my Instagram (@lifeasbeccaa) so I thought I’d do a makeup related blog post! So here we go my top 5 make up brands

1. W7

I was the biggest fan of Mac for the longest time, mostly because of the mascara and I never thought I’d find a mascara I love as much as my Mac one but I was wrong! For Christmas I got a set of W7 makeup which I have never tried before and it included the mascara which was the very same as my Mac one (in my opinion) and it was so much more affordable which was a bonus, I also love their cover stick it’s the best thing to cover spots! Their eyeshadow palettes have always been one of my favourites I’ve like 5 palettes!

2. Catrice cosmetics 

As far as I know you can only get this in Primark and one or two pharmacies but I mostly only love this brand for their foundations and concealer because I don’t like heavy makeup, I’m more of a natural kind of girl so I find their foundation amazing and I haven’t really tried any other products of theirs but I’m sure they are amazing! I definitely will try some more and maybe do reviews on them because they are also an affordable brand!

3. L’Oreal Paris 

All of their brow products are my lifee! Now I know I said I don’t like full glam makeup but when I’m going out I sometimes wear a heavier and darker foundation and I literally only use L’Oreal!! Now my favourites products would have to be the infallible 24h-matte foundation in the shade natural rose, if you wear tan a lot I highly recommend this foundation because it gives your face a beautiful clear tan and it looks so pretty honestly! Also a foundation favourite would be true match it has the prettiest glitter undertone that I lovee! My eyebrow favourite would 100% have to be the brow artist plumper it’s so amazing to just throw it on your eyebrows when you are heading out so you don’t have to sit down and shape out your brows and all that!

4. Kylie Cosmetics 

All I have to say is I just love her lip kits so much and all the colours are just amazing and I’m also a big fan of her eyeshadow palettes such beautiful colours, also her collection are always so beautiful!

5. Maybelline New York

Literally there isn’t a product that I’ve tried of theirs that I don’t like, the Gigi Hadid collection was just beautiful and I wish I got literally every product, they are always doing the most amazing collections, I’m pretty sure everyone loves Maybelline!

These are the 5 most makeup brand I use but I love so many more too so I’ll do another one soon! Hope you enjoyed and don’t forget, make up giveaway on my Instagram! @lifeasbeccaa☺️

Advice for teenagers

Happy Thursday, today’s post is about teenagers and our current world, this is me speaking from 100% experience and how I felt in the situations and I hope it helps some of you out!

First thing I want to say is no matter how young / old you are, you have a voice of your own, it’s okay to have a different opinion to everyone else, it’s okay to not want to follow the crowd, it’s okay to be different, it’s okay to stand out.

Having a voice and using it is important, if you don’t want to do something speak up and say it don’t hide in the back and do it because everyone else is doing it!, do what you believe in and if you think it’s wrong say it and leave, don’t get yourself caught up in stuff you don’t wanna be in or isn’t easy to get out of! Always remember it’s your life and you shouldn’t live it to please anyone else but yourself! Also having a different opinion is okay too, don’t ever be afraid to share your opinion not everyone will agree but that’s okay, as long as you know what you are saying and doing!

“Following the crowd” I’ve lived this & seen so many do it, just because your friends do something doesn’t mean you have to!!! If you think it’s wrong and it’s something you know you shouldn’t do then speak up and say there is no way you’ll do it & that’s it no need to explain yourself! And if you think you have to do it to fit in or do it so your friends will like you or whatever then they aren’t really your friends and you are 100% better off without them! I’ve often been asked to do things and it’s all stuff I don’t agree with so of course I stood up and said that!

Being different & standing out is sO important to me, my mam often said to me look at those girls walking around in groups just worrying about school, while you have business ideas, what you wanna do in life & it all planned out. And I loved that because although I’m only 16 I’ve planned out so much and thought about doing such big things, the higher the goal the more I work & fight for it! But while my friends were out getting drunk and smoking whatever in fields ( which I was asked and asked to do with them but I always said no because that isn’t the way I want my life to go ) I was traveling, going to concerts and meeting new people and it truly was amazing! And I also ended up starting a blog because of the discussions I made!☺️

So not following the crowd, standing out and being different made me see what I truly want to do and what makes me happy, and gives me excitement every time I do it!

Now I’m not judging anyone who does drink or smoke I’m just saying EVERYONE in my town does it and Honestly it isn’t the road I wanted to take and I took a different one and ended up here, which I’m happy with! But it was all because I said no and didn’t give into the temptation of others. Also if you are going through a hard time don’t be afraid to text me on twitter my dms are always open!

So,

Be kind

Be happy

Be strong

Be brave

Be respectful

Be different

Be you.

See you Tuesday!

PS Pigment’s

Recently Primark came out with some eye pigments, and I picked up some of them. They’ve 6 single colours & 3 in a set for their Gold Rush line.

Set of 3 for Gold Rush Lines;

Literally took them out of their box and my hand was covered in glitter which just shows how pigmented they really are, they are amazing on & blend into your eyeshadow amazingly.

3 for €5

6 single pigments;

I picked up the shades Brown Sugar & Copper Daze. Amazing colours and apply so nicely to the eye lid.

€3 each

PS Gold Rush Highlighting Palette

PS Gold Rush Highlighting Palette

So along with the Gold Rush Eyeshadow Palette I also got the Highlighting Palette. This palette is by far my favourite highlighter from Primark. It has four amazing shades and each one is very pigmented. They blend nicely with foundation and show up amazing on the skin! Another Primark make up item I would recommend getting! This was also €6.
