MAC Beauty Influencers Collection First Impressions



Hey everyone, 

I am back with another beauty post (sorry it's been so beauty heavy recently) and this post is a very exciting one. As you can tell by the name of the post it is a first impressions of the MAC beauty influencers collection for the UK. 

Now when I found out that Mac was collaborating with beauty influencers, I knew that this collection would be one I had to get my hands on. So if your unfamiliar with this Mac collection what they did was collaborate with two beauty influencers from seven different countries and allowed them to create their own lipstick. 

Fleur's on the left and Alessandra on the right. 

My only thing that I dislike about this collaboration is that you can only buy the beauty influencers from your country's lipstick and not the others. I wish Mac would of made the whole collection worldwide to allow us to pick up some of the other beautiful shades such as Samantha Ravndahl from Canada lipstick 

So like I said you could only pick up the two lipsticks from your country and I think Mac done a pretty good job of picking two great beauty influencers for the UK.  Our two beauty influencers were FleurDeForce who is the first ever youtuber I ever watched and Alessandra Steinherr beauty director of Glamour Magazine. 

After that way to long introduction, let's get into the shades!

Top is MacxFleurDeForce
MacxFleurDeForce

Fleur's shade is described as a cool beige and is a creamsheen formula. I love that it is a creamsheen formula as it makes it comfortable to wear and still glossy.
It defiantly is a cool beige shade and I find it to be slightly brown on my porcelain skin, but on my mum's slighter darker skin it is perfect. I love this shade and although I don't think it suit's me 100% it defiantly suits my mum so I think I will be giving it to her.  I haven't found any shade similar to this one so if you can get your hands on it I would, as it is a beautiful shade. 

MacxAlessandra

Alessandra's shade is described as a neutral pink and is a lustre finish. I haven't tried any lustre lipsticks from the Mac collection before so this was new to me. The shade is true to the description, it is a neutral pink and on me it's a my lips but better shade. Having tried this formula I like it but the pigmentation isn't the best and the lasting power isn't the greatest, but it's worth it for how beautiful the lipstick is. 

I think out of the two shades this one is more wearable as it's a neutral pink that will suit all skin tones. Nevertheless both shades are beautiful and if you can get your hands on either it will be worth your while.  

Did you manage to get your hands on either of these lipsticks?
If so what do you think? 

Let me know in the comments below your thoughts. I hope you all have a wonderful day and I will be back again on Sunday with a new post.

Clarins Limited Edition Bronzing And Blush Compact- Worth The Hype?







Hey everyone, 

Todays post is a mini review of the Clarins Limited Edition bronzing and blush compact that everyone seems to be raving about at the moment. Literally every time I went onto Instagram this stunning compact would make it's way onto my feed. The temptation was to much to resist so I picked this up when Clarins had their 10% of for their birthday. 

This bronzer and blush compact comprises of three bronzing shades and one coral blush shade, the design of the pan is so that it looks like a fading sunset, starting with the blush shade and fading until you get to the darkest bronzing shade. 

Now if your pale like me you will know the struggle of trying to find that perfect bronzer that won't look to muddy or to dark. Well look no further I have found your perfect match, Clarins claims this suits all skin tones and so far I have found that to be true. This suits me, my mum and my auntie who all have different skin tones with me being the palest and my auntie being quite tanned.

Normally with these kind of compacts I tend to just use the lightest shade, but with this one I can get away with swirling my brush in the pan and applying straight to my face. I find this bronzer to give me the perfect amount of bronze sun kissed look with, the coral blush shade adding just a pop of colour to the apples of my cheeks.

As for lasting power this is up there, it last's all day on my skin without fading although I will sometimes top up the coral shade if I want a brighter cheek look if that makes sense.

Overall this bronzer is ranking number one of my list of bronzers at this moment in time and I recommend it 100 %. Unfortuently this bronzer is limited edition and is currently sold out on their website. I would say check out your local counter though as they may have some stock left. At £30 for 20g of product you can't go wrong as this will most likely last me till next summer.

Have you tried the new Clarins Bronzing and Blush Compact?
Do you like it, Do you not?

Let me know in the comment's down below your thought's on this product and I will see you very soon.

Until Next Time,

Laura Mercier First Impressions






Hey Everyone, 

Sorry for the long absence from the blog I have just had so much going on with my Nan being in hospital, Uni exams revision and a hectic time in work. But I'm back and this time it's a first impressions of two Laura Mercier products which I picked up within the last week. Now this isn't a full review as I haven't had long to play with them but if you want a full review let me know.

Now I know I have been promising you a haul and they will come soon but they take a bit longer to photograph and edit so will be up asap. Anyway after that long introduction let's get into the actual post.

So the first product that I picked up was the Tinted Moisturiser SPF 20 in Cameo

I have heard so many people rave about this product and with me needing a light foundation/tinted moisturiser for my holiday this seemed like the perfect option. First impressions of this product are great.
The shade matches me perfectly, I think this is the first time that I have found a pale enough shade that matches my cool undertones, but this does exactly that. From swatching it, it seems to give a good amount of coverage, feels light when blended. I haven't had a chance to play with it yet so am not sure about how good the wear time is of the product, but I will report back once I have tested it out.
So far so great, this could become my new holy grail base!

The final product that I picked up was the Foundation Primer - Hydrating. 

I had never planned to pick this up but I seem to be so gullible when sales associates try to sell me things as I always say yes. So the lady at my counter was saying how it would help my dry skin and to help the tinted moisturiser last longer.
It felt super hydrating when trying it out and it seemed to blend easily on my hand when trying it out. It seemed to leave my hand sticky but the good kinda sticky where you know it's going to help your makeup last. 

It was kind of pricey but having gone home and read reviews it seems worth it, as it seems like a highly rated primer. Again like the moisturiser so far so great, will it be my holy grail primer? that remains to be seen but I have got high hopes for this product.

So there you have my mini haul/ first impressions. I will try and get the clothing hauls up asap or I may just do an Instagram live if you would prefer that. There will be a lot more hauls coming soon on the blog so look out for them.
Also I may be a bit hit and miss on here and social media until after my exams/holiday is done, but after that there will be some great exciting content coming on the blog.

I hope you all have a great bank holiday weekend and I will see you all soon!

Dreams Really Can Come True- Trip Announcement




Right Heather get a grip of yourself!
If you haven't guessed by the title then this post is a trip announcement, but not any ordinary trip announcement a Disney one. 
Yeah that's right I am off to Walt Disney World next August. I actually can't believe that a childhood dream of mine is finally coming true. To Honour this special, magical, wonderful trip I thought I would start a series on the blog dedicated to my wonderful trip. 

Say Hello to Dreams Really Can Come True - yeah not the most creative name in the world but hey it will do. So to start of the Series it only seemed right that this would be the trip announcement. 

Now I won't go into detail in this post about our package as I will be dedicating a full post to our package and how/ why we booked it the way we did. 

So yeah not sure what else there is to say apart from the fact that I am going to Walt Disney World next August. I am going with my mum which some of you may find cringe or childish but I couldn't imagine a better person to go with as she is just as in love as I am, also seeing as we did Paris together it is nice that we can do Florida Together as well. 

I also plan on creating a range of post's for this series and the main ones I am thinking of are: 

  • Package - Talking about our package
  •  Pre Dining reservations - Talking about what dining reservations we want to get 
  • Post dining reservations - Talking about the dining reservations we got
  • Fastpasses - Talking about the fast passes we got. 
  • Trip reports - I would like your opinion on how you want the trip to be split up
  • Reviews of any restaurants/rides
  • Tips for first timers- This would be done once I get back as my advice to other first timers. 
  • OOTD - for the whole trip
  • Packing- What I am taking 
  • Haul - Things we Bought 
If there is any other posts that you would like to see please do leave them below as I want this to be even better than my new york series. 

I think thats all I have left to say, I honestly can't believe how lucky I am that I can tick both New York and Walt Disney World of my bucket list within two years. 
Anyway your probably all sick of me waffling on so I will leave it here. I hope you have a wonderful day and I will hopefully have another post up this week even two potentially. 

Thanks For Reading, 
Until Next Time,

My Go To Makeup Favourites For Spring 2017


Hey everyone, 

Spring is finally here and why not kick start the stream of spring related blog posts with my go to makeup favourites for spring 2017. I like to change my makeup up for spring and go for a lighter more natural makeup with a pop of colour now and again. 

I do like to change my makeup on a regular basis so this is my current spring favourites for now, and if and when they do change I will make sure I update you on the blog.So after that long introduction let's get started.

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation

 I love this for the spring time as it's light coverage and gives you such a glowing base. It provides just enough coverage and feels light on the skin.
I also love that they cater for very fair skin tones as well. I just wish it wasn't in a glass bottle as it makes it harder to travel with in the summer. 

Mac Soft And Gentle Highlighter

 I only got this back in December and I have been in love with it ever since, it is the perfect glowing bronze toned highlighter that would suit any skin tones. On my porcelain skin tone it shows up slightly peachy than bronzy but its's beautiful nonetheless and for that reason it makes it into my spring favourites. 

Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer 

I again only got this back in december but it has quickly overtaken my Nars Radiant creamy concealer. This concealer is perfect for spring, provides great coverage, isn't cakey and most importantly doesn't crease on me. It also blends into the skin seamlessly.

Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow palette

I only got this recently and I have fallen head over heels for this eyeshadow palette. It is completely out of my comfort zone but the shades are so gorgeous. The shade range is perfect for springtime with the peachy and pink shades, with the added green shades. I have done a full review over on my blog which you can find here if you want more information.

Mac Creme Cup Lipstick

This is probably my favourite spring lipsticks, it is beautiful pink nude that goes well with a brighter eye look or even a natural fresh spring look. For that reason it is my favourite nude spring lipstick as it is so versatile and it can suit so many skin tones.

Marc Jacobs Kiss Kiss Bang Bang Lipstick

This lipstick was part of the Sephora Birthday gift for last year and this has now become my go to bright lipstick for spring. It is a hot pink shade and my go to spring bright colour. Although mine is a mini you can buy the full size of the lipstick here which I suggest you do

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara 

It took me so long to cave into the hype of the product, but I received it in a Too Faced christmas gift set and I can now understand the hype. This helps to give lashes lots of length, volume and it helps to separate them. I find this to make my lashes go from meh to wow in a few coats. My go to mascara for spring and more than likely summer, although I am wanting to try the waterproof version.


So there you have it my go to makeup favourites for spring 2017, I hope you enjoyed this post. Leave me a comment down below letting me know what your spring favourites are. Also if you have any post requests please do let me know in the comments below.

Threads Beauty False Eyelashes Review



Am I the only one who struggles to find the Perfect pair of flash eyelashes, one's that don't weigh your eyes down, look good and are comfortable to wear all night long and stay put?

Well look no further I think I have found the perfect brand. Now as someone who suffers with sensitive eyes and suffers with an eye condition, wearing false eyelashes can sometimes be a chore/pain. Most of the time I tend to skip them as a lot of the ones I have tried have either been to heavy on my eyes, to uncomfortable, or just in general caused my eyes to sting. 

Having Received the *Charleston and * Red Cherri lashes from Threads Beauty I was excited to see how they would look/ would the be suited to my needs.
The Charleston lashes are defiantly the more wearable of the two and were my personal favourite as I love a natural fuller lash look, in comparison the Red Cherri lashes were the bolder more suited to a night out lashes.
 I found both of these lashes to be great they lasted the the whole day/night I was wearing them, they were super comfortable and didn't feel like they were weighing my eyes down. 
And the best part they didn't Sting my eyes which for me automatically puts them as one of my top False eyelash brands.

Now in terms of pricing they aren't the cheapest false eyelashes out on the market as they are £9 each. If your like me though and suffer with an eye condition or sensitive eyes, or even wanting to treat yourself to a set of great quality lashes then I think the price justifies itself as they really are worth the money. 

As for availability you can buy them here off their own website where their is nine different sets to choose from all of which look amazing. 

Overall I would highly recommend these flash eyelashes, they provide great quality, long lasting and perfect for even the most sensitive of eye's.

Have you tried any False Eyelashes from Threads Beauty? What's your favourite brand of False Eyelashes? Do let me know in the comments down below and I will see you all again next week with a new post!

Little Life Update




Hey everyone, 

Todays post is going to be a little life update seeing as I haven't done one for a while. I had originally planned to do this alongside my normal upload on Sunday, but as I have a lot of uni work to do I decided this would be my Sunday upload so I hope that's okay with you all. 

Now onto the life update and life has been pretty busy the past few months, so I thought I would break this post up into three categories, University, Blog and Life. 

University 

University has been crazy busy the past few months, I have had lots of assignments, summaries due in so the workload has been a lot. It also dosent seem like it will let up as I still have 3 pieces of work to submit this month and them revision begins for our exams at the end of the may and begining of june. 

University will practically take over my life the next 3 months so If I am less active on social media or the blog then I hope you understand as come June 11 I will be free to do whatever I want. My exams finish on the second of June but I am away on Holiday in Alcudia from the 4th to the 11th.

Aside from that First year has been going great, I got a low mark on two piece of coursework which was a bummer, but it has made me more determined to work harder on the last few pieces and my exams.

Blog 

Theirs not a huge amount to update you on regarding the blog really. I am planning on adding a couple of posts to my New York Travel series hopefully soon. I am also hoping to announce another trip which will become a series on the blog in April so look out for that near the end of the month. 

I also want to bring back my Baking with Heather's World series so if that's something you would like to see please do let me know in the comments below. 

I would also love to know what content you would like to see on the blog as I really want to start making content that is tailored to you all and things you want to read. I am also working on some new series to start as I love creating them and with my extra long summer I will have some extra time to hopefully upload more than one post a week.

I would appreciate your input greatly on the content you would like as although it is called heather's world, I want this blog to be a place we can all enjoy and bond over.

So yeah aside from that I don't have anything else to update you all on about the blog apart from that until the 11th June you will need to bare with me, University will come before the blog so if I'm inactive which I hope I won't be then please bare with I will be back eventually. 

Life

My life well where do I start? 

What else I am in the process of planning a very exciting trip which will be announced on the blog and social media as soon as it is booked. 
I am still working part time and that is going okay, I am looking for a more flexible job but I am happy staying at my current job until one comes up. 

Life is pretty okay at the moment, I am still single incase any of you wanted that kind of an update and I'm not looking either at the moment.  I am also so close to finishing my first year off University and this excites me so much as it has been a hard year but looking forward to the 17 week Summer.

What else do I have to tell you about my life erm well my life is super interesting as you can tell seeing as I don't know what to update you all on aha!

Oh yeah I am getting my hair done next weekend and it will be a complete change from what I am use to. Kinda nervous, Kinda excited so look out for a few pictures of that on social media.
So yeah nothing else really to update you on apart from that am doing good, am happy with where my life is currently at, it's been a bumpy few years but finally the future is looking bright!

So there you have a little life update, sorry that this wasn't a proper post I have just been super busy. Next's week post will be a review of some false eyelashes that I was sent so look out for that.  I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday evening and I will see you all next week.

Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette Review





Hey Sweet Peach, 

See what I did there, yeah so if you haven't guessed by the title this is a review of the Sweet Peach palette by Too Faced.
Now I know I'm late to jump on the bandwagon about this product as it has been around Forever but better late than never I suppose.

Now the official description of this palette as stated on the Too Faced website and the back of the box is
 " Be sweet as a peach with these fresh-picked shades infused with the juicy scent and antioxidant-rich essence of peach. Create endless looks with 18 shades of peachy pinks, corals, bronzes, and pops of purples that will have you looking summer-fresh year-round. Includes our signature Glamour Guide with three looks to get your started"


Now before I go into the pro's and Con's of the product let's talk about the shades within the palette. This palette contains 18 eyeshadows with a good mix of shimmers and matt's with a few slightly more shimmers but thats fine with me as I do like shimmer shades. 

The shade range has a mix of corals, nudes, purples, pinks and browns with the odd green shade thrown in. Now I am not going to go into all the shades in detail but I do have swatches of them. Here is a few of my favourite shades described. 

Top Row From Left To Right 


Middle Row From Left to Right

Bottom Row From Left to Right 

  1. Lucious- A shimmery Nude with a hint of brown bordering on rose hint to it. 
  2. Bless Her Heart- A moss green shade with some shimmer in it. 
  3. Belini- Peachy Pink with shimmer, a beautiful shade for summer. 
  4. Peaches 'N Cream- A matt nude works perfectly as a base shade. 
  5. Caramelized - A bronzy Brown with shimmer a good neutral. 
So theirs a few of my favourite shades now I will go into the pro's and con's of the palette. 

Pros

  • The smell-  It smells lovely now I find it to smell more like peach flavoured sweets than actual peaches but it still has a lovely smell.
  • The packaging - now if your anything like me and buy a product based on packaging then you will love this one. It has a lovely gradient effect and the colours just scream SUMMER. 
  • Lasting Power- The staying power on these eyeshadows are incredible if I use a primer I can get at least 6 hours out of these shadows without creasing or fading. 
Cons  

  • Shade Range- Now I am not the biggest fan of the shade range, I personally think their should be a few more orange, true peachy shades in the palette. I personally would prefer less natural brown/bronzy shades and would rather have more orange, peachy shades as if I am buying a colour palette I want it to be a true colour palette but that is just my preference. 
  • Pigmentation - The pigmentation is a bit hit and miss in my opinion, their are shades like Georgia and Talk Derby To Me that just lack so much pigmentation, even white peach to some extent although that may just be due to my skin tone.
  • Size-  For me this palette is to big, now don't get me wrong you are getting a lot of product for your money but I would prefer if it had been in the style of their natural eye palette. Due to it's size it doesn't fit into my makeup bag and that makes it a pain for traveling but again this is just personal preference. 

Overall I think this is a great palette and I would recommend it to people but there are some things Too Faced could work on and I hope they bring out a Sweet Peach 2 Palette but with those corrections I have mentioned as it would be perfect for me then. Overall your getting a lot of product for your penny so it get's the thumbs up from me. 

So there you have it I hoped you liked my review, leave me a comment below letting me know your thoughts on this hyped up product. I hope you all have a fabulous Sunday Night and I will see you again next week with a new post.

Duty Free Wish List - Alcudia Edition





Hey lovelies, 

I asked on twitter what post would you like to see and most of you picked this one from the poll. I am kinda glad as I have been waiting to do this post for a while now, and I thought it was appropriate seeing as I have two holidays booked so far this year. 

So as you may of guessed from the title of this post, this will be my duty free wish list. Like I said I have two main holidays planned this year with one or two more potentially happening. I have decided to make this an Alcudia edition and I will do one again before my next holiday. 


Lets start with Beauty

Theirs a few bits that I want that aren't on the duty free website so I will only mention them briefly.

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Cecile

I love love the rouge coco lipsticks and really want to add to my collection and this is one of the ones I want. They are expensive at full price but with the duty free prices I feel like I can justify it.

Bobbi Brown Cheek Glow Bare/Desert Rose Palette

Every time I go onto Duty Free I always stop and stare at this product and I think this would be the perfect product for Alcudia. I am normally not the biggest fan of cream products but am willing to let it go for this product.

Lancome Cushio Blush Subtil 022 Rose Givree

I have heard so much about the cushion products and this is one cushio products I would like to try. The colours seems perfect for my skin tone, and it has been on my wish list for a long time so defiantly one for me to checkout.

Tom Ford Mandarino Di Amalfi 50ml

This is the most expensive product on my wish list but one I just had to add. I love buying a new fragrance every time I go on holiday as it just reminds me of the memories and the holiday. This is a scent I have been eyeing up for ages and is one of a few I am currently deciding on which one to get.

 La Mer The Cleansing Micellar Water 200ml 

This again is very pricy for what is it but again somthing I have been waiting to try for ages and I kicked myself when I missed out on the La Mer Glossybox.
I am always looking on investing in new skincare products and although this is only £10 cheaper at duty free it's better than paying full price.

Finally onto Alcohol and Food

Dairy Milk Minitures Share Bag 400G

I love love miniature bags of chocolates so whenever I go the airport I tend to stock up so that we have some home comforts on our holiday. 

Cadbury Flake Miniatures 

I love to pick up a bag or two of Flake miniatures as I cant seem to find them anywhere else. It is another essential for me whenever I go to duty free.

Grey Goose Vodka 5cl 

Grey Goose Vodka is such a luxury item for me and something I only ever buy at duty free or on special occasions. I love these mini bottles and they always seem to be on offer whenever I go to duty free so I always pick some up.

So their you have my Duty Free Wish List for Alcudia, What's on your duty free wish list? and where are you going on Holiday this year? Let me know in the comments below.  I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday afternoon and I will see you again next week and hopefully on time!

New Year Collective Haul- Part 2 Random Bits




Hey lovelies, 

Todays post is part two of my new year collective haul and I have named this random bits as it is a random collection of stuff. I do apologise if the images are sideways I plan to re take them next weekend so bare with me till then. 

Like in the last post links to the products are in the titles and are non affiliate as well. So before I end up rambling on I am just going to jump right in. 

Disney Store

So I just had to buy a few bits from the Beauty and The Beast collection seeing as it is my favourite disney film of all time. 


I don't normally buy shopper bags but once I seen this one I just had to buy it. I love the design of it and yeah need I say more can't complain at the price of £3 either. 


While browsing the collection I spotted this and next thing I knew I had bought it. I am so glad they brought it out as it's something us older fans can buy, don't get me wrong I want the dolls and am 20 but I like how the range caters to fans of all ages. 

Beauty and The Beast Mug 

I also bought this beautiful mug and when I went into the Liverpool store their was two mugs to choose from and this was my favourite out of the two. I can't find this mug online so if your looking to buy it I would suggest checking out your local store asap. 

Apple Store

Nothing exciting just some boring essentials that I needed. 

Morphie Powerbank 

I can't find this online but I bought a Morphie power bank with 24 hours of charge. This is an essential as on a Monday, Thursday and Fridays I do a 14 hour day and this is so useful for me to have. I also got it in Rose Gold cause yanno it's Rose Gold. 



Not much really to say about these apart from the fact that my headphones broke so I had to replace them and I liked the Apple one's so yeah.

Debenhams 

My most exciting purchase of the day!



So I asked on twitter last weekend what beauty Items should I pick up and two lovely beauty bloggers called @MandaMartinotti and @BeautyKingdomUk go check them out recommended me to get this pallet so I did. First impressions are that I love the smell and the eyeshadows look stunning. 

Nothing like anything I own and completely out of my comfort zone of nude shadows. I haven't fully tried it out as I have been waiting to photography it for this post but if you want a full review post let me know.  

So their you have it the second part of my haul, let me know in the comments what was your favourite item. Check back tomorrow at 10am for My Duty Free Wishlist. I hope you all have a fabulous Saturday night and don't party to hard.
