How I Know He's The 'One'




A lot of people say that you'll just know when you meet 'the one' and I can't agree any more with that saying! Growing up, I have always wanted to get married and have kids and just have that perfect family. After being in a few relationships, I knew whether or not I wanted kids with them and whether I wanted to spend the rest of my life with them or not. But in the current relationship I'm in now, I'd definitely love to marry him and have kids. I really think he's the one.

Trusting eachother
Don't let yours or their past stop you from having trust in your relationship. What happened in past relationships doesn't matter. You're focusing on the present and future now, not having trust in your relationship can stop you both from moving forward. 

The occasional arguments
Every single relationship have arguments. If you don't have arguments, are you even in a serious relationship? I always find that your relationship is stronger after an argument, no matter how stupid or serious the row was. We always tend to end up laughing about the five minute most ridiculous argument afterwards.

When he's supportive af!
I've never been with anyone that's been this supportive of me as Liam is. We've been through everything together that you can imagine. Going through my anxiety problems, losing my uncle and other life problems that happened right when we got together, he's truly been amazing.

Laughing till you can't breathe
I have such a great sense of humour anyway, but being with someone that also has a great sense of humour is EVEN better! If I've had a bad day at work or if I'm feeling down, Liam never fails to make me laugh. We laugh about the most random things too. We even have our own inside jokes, (currrryyyyy, Liam, that was for you). Even if I wake up at 4am, Liam wakes up too and we still laugh somehow.

He still gives you butterflies
The way he kisses me, the way he makes me breakfast in bed, those random date nights, walking around the park hand in hand, cute text messages, certain ways he look at me. Just silly little things. I always thought the butterflies would eventually go away after time. Obviously, I was wrong.

The sex is still amazing
I don't think I've ever written about sex on my blog, not even the word 'sex'. It feels weird just typing it, lol. Sex sex sex sex. If the sex is still amazing as it was the first time you done it and you're not getting bored, then that's incredible!

Absence makes the heart grow fonder
Growing up, I have completely understood this saying more and more. Liam recently left me for two weeks to go abroad on holiday with his family, and as much as I missed him, he weren't gone for that long and I can't even explain the feeling I felt when he got back. It's not healthy to be with eachother 24/7 in your relationship. It's nice to have some time apart and look forward to seeing eachother when the time comes.

Are you currently in a serious relationship?

My Favourite Scent All Year Round...

 ysl black opium perfume review

ysl black opium review

I don't usually write about fragrances as I find it hard to explain how things smell. But, I really wanted to tell you about my most favourite scent that I wear all year round! It is, of course Yves Saint Laurent's Black Opium. Let me mention the gorgeous design of the bottle first... I love it! It's black and sparkly with a bumpy texture, it's just a unique and attractive bottle.

With base notes of vanilla, middle notes of white florals and top notes of black coffee; it's girly, strong and sweet (if that makes sense, ha). It's quite a sweet scent but spicy and it's potent which lasts a good few hours although I always keep it handy in my bag to refresh throughout the day. I don't actually know anyone that dislikes this perfume. I get so many compliments and questions on this perfume when I wear it.

Have you tried any of YSL's Opium range?

Dr Botanicals Moroccan Rose Superfood Facial Oil

dr botanicals facial oil

Yet again, Dr Botanicals have kindly sent me another one of their products to try out. I had high expectations for this facial oil as the other products I tried out previously were amazing! I have been using this product for over a month now to really see a difference. This facial oil is full of minerals and vitamins which work together to protect and renew the skin. The ingredients contained is:
-Vitamin C which helps to stimulate collagen production, for younger looking skin.
-Vitamin A which is a powerful antioxidant with the aims to even the skin tone and reduce signs of ageing.
-Almond oil which deeply moisturises and nourishes skin whilst brightening the complexion for brighter, fresh looking skin.

dr botanicals moroccan rose facial oil

All I do is squeeze 3-4 drops of the oil from the pipette into the palm of my hands and lightly rub together to warm the oil. I then apply it to my face and let it soak in overnight. It feels moisturising instantly after applying but my skin still feels oily. I do have very oily skin and have always suffered with it anyway but the past couple of months, it has been a lot worse than usual.

The consistency of the oil is really runny and quite thin but it smells gorgeous! It smells of roses, obviously. I've never ever used a facial oil in my life, maybe they're just better for dry skin types. I feel like this product doesn't really make a difference to my 'oily' skin type. But, it does leave my skin moisturised, hydrated and brighter.

The New Way to Clean Beauty Blenders: Tested!

I had seen numerous tweets on cleaning a beauty blender this certain way and all the results had me impressed every time.
As I'm really bad with cleaning my makeup tools often, I decided to give this new way of cleaning my beauty blender a go. As you can see, it's incredibly dirty which made me even more eager to try this out and see if and how it works.

beauty blenders in the microwave

So, I simply put my beauty blender in a jug of cool tap water and added a tiny bit of Johnsons baby shampoo which is what I use to clean my makeup brushes too. If you don't have baby shampoo handy, fairy liquid works just fine for this too!

Then, I popped the jug in the microwave for 1 minute. Once 1 minute was up, I squeezed out the unwanted product from the beauty blender and rinsed it under the tap.
Repeat the process if it's still dirty. I had to repeat two more times to get mine clean.

The final result!
As you can see, I couldn't get it fully clean, but this way of cleaning beauty blenders is excellent! It's quick and easy to do. I really shouldn't leave my beauty blender for that long awaited clean next time.

Have you heard about this cleaning technique?

The Concealer That Has Lasted Me (Pretty Much) Forever!

revlon colorstay concealer review

best concealers 2017

Obviously, the word 'forever' in the title of this post is extremely over exaggerated. Although, how amazing would it be if you could keep hold of a product forever without it running out? However, I have owned this concealer for quite a few months now. Every time I've bought this, it always lasts me ages. There's nothing different or exciting about it, it's just the usual concealer in a tube. Maybe the applicator doesn't soak up as much product as other concealers do... I don't know.

I originally bought the Revlon Colorstay concealer some time last year when I was loving the Revlon Colorstay foundation. What I love about this concealer is that it's the perfect light colour for pale skin. It doesn't have that 'orange' undertone like other light concealers do. It blends out really easily and smoothly. It does seem to settle in fine lines under the eye but after patting over with a damp beauty blender and setting with powder straight after, it's soon sorted. The clue is also in the name, the concealer stays in place for a good six hours. Sometimes you'll need to go over a stubborn spot once or twice throughout the day but overall it's great!

Have you tried this concealer?

PRO.VOKE Touch of Silver - Every Blondes Dream

provoke touch of silver reviews

Being blonde, you need to take really good care of your hair. This past month, I have come across these products and I don't know why I hadn't found them sooner!
I usually use the brightening shampoo (in the middle) once I've just coloured my hair or if it's looking dull or brassy. The violet pigment neutralises the brassy/yellow tones in the hair and makes the hair visibly brighter after one wash.

Then we have the colour care shampoo and conditioner. The colour care shampoo pretty much does the same job as the brightening shampoo, I just use this as a normal shampoo every time I wash my hair. Again, it keeps your blonde hair bright and gets rid of unwanted brassy tones in the hair. The colour care conditioner works like any other conditioner, it locks in the moisture to keep your hair non-damaged and healthy.

After using these three products for a whole month, I have received so many compliments. People have said that my hair looks brighter and thought I had it re-done at the salon. It's so much softer, it looks in much better condition and it's super shiny! With prices starting from as low as £2.19, you can't really go wrong. I recommend this brand to every blondie.

Twenty and New Adventures!

elsie de wolfe quote

I don't think I've ever done a little update post, I've always thought that it would bore the hell out of you all. But, I actually enjoy reading these type of blog posts so I thought I'd do one myself and it might even interest you. I turned twenty on Saturday which is absolutely crazy to say because time has FLOWN!

So, today I got a offered a new job! I'm feeling ecstatic and I can't wait to start. For the past year I have been working full time at Boux Avenue, it's honestly the best place to work in retail. All my colleagues are lovely and it's such great pay with amazing benefits! I'm sad to be leaving but I hate working in retail with a passion, the girls at work are the only thing keeping me going. You may or may not know that I am a fully qualified hairdresser, so I have decided to go back into a hair salon. Yayyyyy. I'm so excited but nervous for the new start.

You may have seen through social media that I have someone very new in my life, well not very new, we've known eachother since we were young. I love him and his family with all of my heart, they mean everything to me and I'm so excited for many memories ahead.

Also, I've recently decided to become a distributor for a company called Nu Skin. They're quite well known for their AP24 whitening toothpaste. As well as their toothpaste, they stock cosmetics, facial products and body products. Each product is absolutely amazing! I've set up a separate Instagram page for my new little business, if you would like to follow me on my journey, feel free to check me out at megselizabethbeauty.

So, I am super excited to start my new little adventures! Cheers to new beginnings!

My Experience with Individual Eyelash Extensions!

I originally booked in to get individual eyelashes done for a weeks holiday back in March. I was excited as much as I was nervous; I didn't know what I would look like with them, how they'd feel or even if they'd suit me. I had a mini consultation with the lash technician beforehand and told her exactly how I wanted them to look.

individual lashes experiences

Little did I know that I'd end up absolutely loving them and that I'd become addicted to the easy morning routine of not applying any mascara. Having lashes makes your life 100x easier; you can have that extra ten minutes in bed and you can go on holiday/swimming without wearing mascara, the list could go on. Prices vary quite a bit for a full set of lashes, I paid £60 for mine but it's definitely worth every penny! Mine lasts around two and a half weeks before I need to get them infilled. The price for my lash infills start from £18 depending on how many lashes are missing, I haven't paid any more than £20 for infills.

Most people that have had eyelash extensions before say that they have lost their natural lashes or that their natural lashes are really short. This isn't the case for everyone if you take good care of them. I own up to picking a few out whilst the individuals were growing out which caused some of my lashes to come out and shorten. I have actually taken my individual lashes off now after three months to give my natural lashes a break from the glue. I'm happy to say that my natural lashes are still in perfect condition, some are a little shorter than others but there's no gaps at all. I am also using an eyelash treatment to keep them from breaking and to keep them in a healthy condition.

These mink lashes aren't irritating in any way, they are really comfortable. I really recommend getting them done if you've been thinking about it or if you have a really busy lifestyle and can't live without your mascara.

Have you ever had individual eyelash extensions?

NYX On the Spot Makeup Brush Cleaner Spray

nyx on the spot makeup brush cleaner spray

Tell me if I'm wrong but it's always such a chore giving your makeup brushes a good deep clean. I recently bought a makeup brush cleaner spray from NYX for when your brushes need a quick cleanse and you don't have the time. I have used a product before which is similar from No7 and I was really impressed by it so I thought I'd give this one from NYX a go.

All you do is simply spritz the product on some paper towel and gently swirl your makeup brushes around. It obviously doesn't give them a thorough deep clean but it does give them a minimal cleanse. The spray itself smells really nice which is great as it also makes your brushes smell amazing too! This cleansing spray is perfect if you don't have the time to give your brushes a deep clean or if you want to cleanse your eyeshadow brush to get rid of the old colour. The product dries within minutes too so you don't have to wait overnight or for a few hours for your brushes to dry. The spray is gentle on the bristles and leave them feeling soft and as good as new.
For £10, this is definitely worth it!

Urban Decays All Nighter Foundation Review

 urban decay foundation review

I have been meaning to get my hands on this foundation for absolutely ages. I've been using it for around a month now, why the hell didn't I buy it sooner?
The packaging of the foundation is uniquely beautiful and super lightweight. I was expecting it to have a little bit of weight like all other foundations I've owned. When I first held it, my initial thought was "is there actually any product in here? It feels empty". At least it's great for travelling. I also love how the barrel containing the foundation inside moves up every time you pump product out. At least you'll get every drop of foundation when you're almost out of it. Talk about getting your moneys worth, ey?

urban decay all nighter foundation review

I was actually matched in store as a 1.0. I didn't want to be buying the wrong shade for something this expensive. I'm not used to buying hella expensive foundations, I usually stick to drugstore. You don't even need to use a full pump of product to apply this for a full face. A little goes a long way with this foundation, about half a pump will do. It buffs in easily and evenly with both a beauty blender and a foundation brush. It has a slight yellow undertone which is what I prefer instead of pink and it matches my skin perfectly. It is also a really lightweight foundation and my face has a soft touch to it compared to my usual drugstore foundations which always still felt quite dewy. It didn't seem to crease or sit in my smile lines at all either.

It definitely controls my oily skin and gives my skin the demi-matte look. It does last a good six hours but from there on, I find that it does go a little bit patchy on my t-zone. Although, that's not a huge problem as I just pat over my t-zone with a damp, clean beauty blender and it looks fresh again. Overall, this foundation is amazing and I'm so glad that I finally purchased it, I just wish it lasted a few hours longer.

Have you tried the all nighter foundation?

Fake Kylie Lip Kits: How to Spot a Fake

fake kylie cosmetics

Wow, it's been a month since I last blogged. It's weird being back but I've missed it terribly! So much has happened in my life recently; loved ones have left and new people have come in. I just needed a break from everything and working full time makes it harder to fit things in which I enjoy doing alongside. Anyway, I'm back with a post which you may find pretty pointless or very helpful, I've definitely learnt my lesson. A few months ago, silly ol' me saw a suggested page come up on my Facebook called Blingtrend. It was advertising 'discounted' Kylie lip kits at the time. I was going to buy one for my sisters birthday after weeks of her begging. Obviously, Kylies lip kits aren't the cheapest so when I saw this deal, I thought why the hell not!?

The website was clean and had the 'secure payment' and '100% satisfaction' labels. I was a little unsure at the time what to think of the whole 'discounted lip kits' situation but I ended up buying the one she wanted anyway. It had been three weeks since I bought the Koko K lip kit and I didn't have any confirmation email. I emailed them numerous times asking when it would be delivered and I heard nothing. I ended up doing a little bit of research about this website and there's SO many bad reviews and everyone saying that it's fake. Why didn't I do this research before making payment? Arrhh.

difference between a fake and real kylie lip kit

I ended up buying the real deal from Kylie Cosmetics. Luckily, it arrived just in time for her birthday. After a month of purchasing the Koko K lip kit from this dodgy site, it arrived at my door. Obviously, I could tell that it was fake straight away when my sister had the genuine one.

The real Koko K is on the left whereas the fake one is on the right. The colour is completely off. The fake lipstick is darker but is more of a pinky/purple colour compared to the real Koko K which is more of a dark nude. The tubes are very similar but the real one is a little bit wider. The text on the fake lipstick is bolder and quite jaggedy.

fake kylie lip kits blog

kylie cosmetics koko k

The colour of the design on the fake box is completely different to the colour of the fake lipstick. It's purple compared to what it actually looks like. Packaging is a massive giveaway with fake cosmetics - especially when it looks and feels cheap too. Let's also talk about the smell; like every fake cosmetic it smells of chemicals, ew. Although, the real Koko K smells really sweet so that's positive.

You can also notice the difference by the suction when you pull the brush out, the genuine one comes out smoothly whereas, the fake one stops before getting all the way out. Don't even get me started on the difference of the brushes! So, the real Koko K is on the right of this picture; the brush is shorter and fatter compared to the fake one which looks like any regular lipgloss you bought when you were 10. The stick is wider and clear unlike the fake one which is thinner and white coloured.

fake vs real kylie lip kit

I decided to do a swatch on a piece of paper. I'm sure you can tell which one is real before I even explain. The real Koko K is thicker and goes on smoother. The fake Koko K is a really thin product and it never dries, it stays tacky all day. Your lips are always sticking together, it's so annoying. The real Koko K dried in minutes with no smudging. Just look at the colour and consistency between the two products. It's mad!

If you see a cosmetic like this selling for a ridiculous price, don't think twice. Who knows what chemicals fake cosmetics have in them? Don't fall for it! Have you ever bought a fake product before?

Dr Botanicals Advanced Purifying Overnight Masque

dr botanicals overnight face mask

night face mask dr botanicals

You may remember that I worked with Dr Botanicals a few months back sharing their gorgeous Moroccan Rose range. So, when they contacted me again and asked if I'd like to try out their advanced purifying overnight masque* to honour National Bed Month, I couldn't say no.

The smell of this product is beautiful which is probably down to the natural ingredients contained in the masque; which is:

-Papaya which is rich in minerals and Vitamin C, this regenerates cells to make the skin look younger and brighter.
-Jojoba Oil which enhances the skins elasticity.
-Sweet Almond Oil which softens, soothes and moisturises all at once.

dr botanicals advanced purifying overnight masque

It's a thin, runny product which makes it easier to apply to your face. You need to apply a thin layer anyway and the runniness of the product makes it easy to glide over the face. So, a little goes a long way with this, you don't need much product. There's a little bit of a firm feeling after it being on for around ten minutes or so, (like one of those peel off masks when it gets really tight, although this masque isn't as severe).

dr botanicals

It's soothing and refreshing once applied. It's also really lightweight too which is perfect as there's nothing I hate more than a overnight face product which is heavy whilst I'm trying to wind down and get to sleep. I use this product every night and the next morning, I wake up with brighter, softer and healthier looking skin every time. I'm also going to mention that it's sensitive skin friendly, like all of their other products!

Throughout this month, you can buy this masque for £19.99 instead of the original selling price of £67. Enter the code 'MEGSBLOG' at checkout.

Have you tried an overnight product before?

The Two Newest Additions to my Skincare Routine

olay skin care products

olay serum review

olay regenerist review

I really wanted to try out some new skin care, so as Superdrug was doing a 2 for 1 offer on Olay skin care products, I obviously went ahead with the offer.

I've never used a facial serum or any anti-aging product before. This serum comes in a small red bottle with an easy to use pump which you twist to open or lock. The product is shimmery white in colour and it absorbs really quickly. You can see the difference within about two weeks - t3he skin is firmer and the visibility of my fine lines under my eyes is reduced. I like to use this before I apply my moisturiser.

olay featherweight moisturiser review

I was expecting the bottle of this moisturiser to be bigger but it's no big deal. The bottle has a golden tone colour to it and again, it has the same style of pump as the serum. You don't need much product to cover your face as it spreads quite evenly. It definitely is light on the face and it absorbs quick too. This moisturiser is perfect for all skin types. I do find it to be quite an oily product, but I have oily skin and it hasn't made it any worse than it was before. My skin looks brighter and feels so much softer.

Have you tried any Olay products before?

My Current Drugstore Makeup Favourites

 my current makeup favourites

drugstore makeup reviews

Makeup Obsession Highlighter - 'Moon'
Need an amazing affordable highlighter? Look no further! After seeing a few British YouTubers rave about this, I just had to get it and try it out for myself. This shimmery white highlight is so pigmented and it's only £3! I find that it's long-lasting too, which is a bonus for such a cheap highlight.

Freedom Brow Promade - 'Soft Brown'
This has also been known as a dupe of Anastasia Beverly Hills brow promade. This is a very creamy product and a little goes a long way, you don't need much product on your brush to fill in your brows. It's soft and easy to blend and work with. The product lasts all day and keeps the brow hairs in place. I've never found this product to smudge or move at all. For just £5, I think it should be worth more.

drugstore makeup favourites

NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipstick - 'Bedtime Flirt'
I had been bursting to try out the Lingerie lipsticks for absolutely ages! This shade is a nude pink/mauve colour. I would suggest that you exfoliate your lips before applying this as you can get that horrible 'dry, cracked lips look'. It glides on smoothly but it's quite tacky whilst waiting for it to dry. I have found it to be long-lasting and stay on whilst eating and drinking although it goes quite patchy after around 4-5 hours. It doesn't dry my lips out at all like some people say it does - the only reason I have in mind is because I don't wear it every day. This is the perfect matte nude every day lip colour.

Ardell Demi Wispies
I'm sure everyone has heard of these famous lashes. I had seen so many people rave about these, I finally tried them out for the first time last month. I love every thing about them - they're not too long, they look natural but also give that 'glam' look, very lightweight, full, soft and feathery. They blend beautifully with your own natural lashes. The glue is great, although it's in a tube so it can get quite messy. These lashes last all day and night - they are quite tricky to get off. But these are by far my favourite lashes of all time!

Lush Sex Bomb Review

lush sex bomb review

lush bath bomb review

Ok, so I am a little late to try out this bath bomb, as always. I swear I'm always the last one jumping on the bandwagon to try out Lush products. Anyway, I've been super excited to throw this in the bath and jump in. Just look at how pretty it is! Sex bomb has just two colours involved, the girly pink and purple. There's also an adorable pink rose sitting in the middle of it which makes it a hundred times prettier. I love floral scents anyway, so smelling this made me love it even more. It smells so sweet and florally and it lingers around the bathroom and on the skin for a good few hours after.

lush sex bomb review blog

Lush states: "The fragrant blend of jasmine, ylang ylang and clary sage will soon have you relaxed and feeling in the mood. Jasmine is an ancient aphrodisiac, used as a sensual perfume in India for centuries and in aromatherapy to ease stress and anxiety. Clary sage clears the mind, whilst ylang ylang is known for soothing worries." Knowing about this description, I instantly felt satisfied as I suffer with anxiety and I have been feeling quite stressed and worried at the moment.

The bomb fizzed out pink and purple but turned my bath water to just a pretty pink colour. It was very relaxing and moisturising for my skin. I'd definitely buy this again, it has to be one of my favourite products from Lush. Buy it here for £3.50.

Naked 2 vs Naked 3: Which One to Buy...

naked 2 vs naked 3

I have only recently begun to properly love Urban Decay. The Naked 3 palette was the first UD product I owned and I used it near enough every day. As I loved it so much, I decided that I wanted the Naked 2 palette for Christmas. I think I will eventually end up owning every palette. The smoky palette is actually next on my list, hah!

naked 3 palette review

naked 3 palette review blog

Maybe I should've cleaned the palette before taking pictures of it, oops, I'm sure you don't mind. Everything about this palette is so pretty. Like all of Urban Decays palettes, they're so pigmented. Although, I do find that some shades are a little more pigmented than others. I also find that some shades are more loose than pressed. For example, you only need to dip your brush in once for 'dust' and 'blackheart' as it picks up so much product. Whereas, you have to brush multiple times on 'trick' and 'burnout' to get the colour you want. If you love pink and shimmery shades, then this will soon be your new bff.

naked 3 palette swatches

naked palettes comparison

naked 2 palette review

As you can see, this palette is a lot cleaner than the Naked 3 palette. There's a mixture of warm and cool tones in this palette compared to Naked 3 which is just full of warm tones. Again, some shades are more pigmented than others and there's some that are loose and pressed. It was so hard choosing my favourite palette as I love both of them the same. I think Naked 2 has to be my favourite though as there's more of a range of colours and I'd wear these colours more than the ones in Naked 3.

All of the shades in both of the palettes are long-lasting and true to how they look in the palette. They're also really lightweight and easy to blend.
Overall, the quality of the palettes are exactly the same, the colour themes are just different. Do you own any of the Naked palettes? If you don't which one out of these two would you choose to buy?

Freedom Makeup - My New Favourite Drugstore Makeup Brand?

freedom makeup review

After hearing a positive review on Freedoms pro brow pomade, I headed straight to the Superdrug website. There's a huge range of colours to choose from. I bought 'soft brown' and I'm so glad I did because it's the perfect colour! I haven't personally tried ABH brow pomade but this could definitely be a dupe and I think every other person that has tried this would say the same.
 It's a very creamy product and a little goes a long way, you really don't need a lot of product on your brush to fill in your brows. I can't see myself running out of this anytime soon. It's soft, long-lasting, easy to blend and work with. Honestly, I won't go back to any other brow product now I've tried this and for only £5, I think it should be worth more.

freedom brow pomade review

I had never tried the Freedom brand before and as the Freedom products were on a 3 for 2 offer, I decided to go with the offer. As I had never tried colour correcting before, I decided to buy this palette. Again, this was £5. I didn't realise how good this palette would be. I'll never apply my makeup without colour correcting ever again, it really does make a difference! You can't see any redness and it hides the dark circles under your eyes.

freedom colour correct palette

freedom contour stick review

I usually stick to using powder for contouring as I find it a lot easier to use than cream contours. I bought this in the colour 'medium'. I still don't know why I bought medium instead of light, I'm so confused haha. Anyway, this is totally the wrong colour for me. It's way too dark for my skin tone and it's quite orange undertoned too. The highlighter doesn't even do anything either.
It is a good creamy consistency for how cheap it looks. Although, it's a nightmare to blend out. I'm disappointed with this product, it's mainly my fault as I bought the wrong colour. But even if it was the right colour, it would still be hard to blend out, look cheap and the highlight would still be useless. Good thing this was £5. Have you tried Freedom makeup?
