The Cosmopolitan Blend Perfection Sponge.

Hi everyone. Hope you're all doing good!
We've all seen the raves about the infamous beauty blender sponge! I've had my eyes on it for quite a while now but as usual I can't afford the real thing because I'm a student! :(
However that's why we all love dupes for... right girls?

Here is how it arrived. 
The packaging looks very professional with the star of the show popped in the middle of the packed.
I love how the sponge came with a plastic tape-type thing around it to secure the shape and elasticity of the sponge.

I've still got this plastic piece of tape. I like to leave my sponge on it whilst it's not in use. 

The sponge itself is a perfect size. Fits very snugly in your hands.
I use the bottom bit to pat on my foundation and then the pointy bit to apply foundation in those
hard to reach areas such as around the nose and around the eye area. Also the pointy bit can be used whilst correcting any mistakes which appeared whilst doing your eyebrows. 
The sponge is quite soft but also structured. It does stain but that's why it must be washed after every use. Well I like to wash it after every use because I don't like the thought of having second hand foundation on my skin the second day. 

Also this brush is good for concealer application. For those who do not use foundation on a day to day basis. I like to pat on my concealer with this sponge to get more coverage from my concealer. And this works a treat.

If you are looking for a beauty blender replacement I will recommend this 100% 
I haven't used the beauty blender but I don't really feel the need to spend that much when I have this sponge which in my opinion is as good!

Hope this post has helped.

17 Eyeshadow Trios

Hi everyone and welcome back to my page.
Today I have a review on some beautiful eyeshadow trios.
If you have been following my page for some time now then you might know how obsessed I am with 17.
I mean who wouldn't be? The 17 range is always coming out with new collections and they're so cheap and affordable!

Greens (one on the left)- Forest Greens
Aqua blue-y (one on the top)- Mermaid's tale.
Blue (one on the bottom) - Moody Blues 

£5.49 each
How vibrant do these colours look?

My favourite thing about these shadows are they are just so pigmented. It's amazing how much you get for the price. Also another thing that I like about 17 trios is that most of them come with a white shade which is amazing for higlighting and also many of them are not even that shimmery which is good for all the matte look lovers.
As I said before the pigmentation is craaazy! I love these trios their perfect to take with you when you're just going for a weekend away or something as each trio will have the shades for an eye look.
Also the shadows aren't too powdery as you know some cheap eyeshadows tend to spread everywhere once you go to use them but not with these.
My favourite trio has to be the trio in Forest greens  because I just love those colours and I think they are perfect if you're looking for something that grabs the attention of your eyes but not too much attention.

Overall I think these eyeshadow trios are great quality for the price you pay. They last long and one pot does the trick.

Hope you guys found this quick review helpful.

Hello again...

Hi everyone hope you're all doing goood!
Long time no see right? yeah sorry about that.

I've been so busy over the last few weeks, I don't know how I'm still in one piece.
Firstly I started some of my exams over in May and then that whole month was full of exams.... So my days really went by revising for my exams and continuing with college. It was so hectic. Then on the day of my final exam before the holidays I started moving houses... why?! Well because my parents decided to and so I was left with revising all throughout that week and doing last minute cramming and revising on Thursday night.
On the Friday I completed my last exams for the week and then moved houses. So that weekend was just full of moving houses. And with that also came redecorating my room. Getting new furniture etc etc. So why didn't I post over the half term? Well because the first Monday back I had my last exam so I spent most of the holiday 'attempting' revision.

Finally It's mid June and I'm back and better then before. I feel so good and relieved that exams are over and my room is complete. I can now get back to blogging, and just in general keeping my page alive as it has been dry for the past month. College is nearly over I cannot believe that the first year is complete, it went by terribly fast! I've met some amazing people over the year and I can honestly say that there has been less drama and the company was very nice.

Well now I'm just babbling away. I just decided I'd pop by and give you all a heads up before getting back to my usual routine. Expect to see many, many more posts very soon and don't forget to fill up the requests page.

Thank you all so much for sticking by and hello to my new followers!!
P.s. 180 FOLLOWERS?!! Thank you so, so much it definitely means a lot.

Before I go here are some images of my latest obsession,
Arm Candy...
