Idea?

Hi everyone I just wanted to let you guys know I’m back and this time for real! I’d like to start blogging again and I’m really excited! So recently, I went cruelty-free on make-up and skincare this has been a really important decision for me and I hope you can appreciate the effort I have put into it. I have always wanted to go vegetarian/vegan, but due to family allergies and food sensitivities, it would be incredibly difficult for my family. So instead I have made the decision to change a lot of my make-up cruelty-free brands and products. I am not 100% cruelty-free yet but this is my aim. I have stopped purchasing products that are not cruelty-free and removed a lot of products from my collection that have been tested on animals. It has been a particularly good change for me as it has changed the way I think about how and when I purchased makeup.
I have also made a lot of changes in my life some things that are simple like I’ve started drinking a lot more water and eating a lot more healthily. Recently I have also decided that I’d like to start up a small business selling my own makeup. I’d really like to try it out even if it’s not guaranteed that it will work. I would really like to know if anyone is interested in buying makeup from a site that I would run. It’s always been a dream for me to develop makeup and if I could develop something that people wanted to buy, that would be a dream. Already I have started developing a shimmer lotion and spray I’d like to put a few photos up of these sprays and lotions and see if people would be interested in purchasing them. To start with this purchase would just be for postage I wouldn’t be charging for the actual product as it is just a trial. It is cruelty-free and free of any products are they tested on animals are also vegan. Postage would be very cheap if you lived within the UK and even outside the UK it would not be too expensive I have developed a pink tinted lotion and a lavender tinted shimmer lotion would be ideal for fair to medium skin and I am in the process of developing a peach/lilac version for deeper skin tones. I feel really helped out if some of you could a comment on whether you would consider paying a small fee for postage should try out this lotion or whether you could consider buying a larger version. In the next few posts I will be posting pictures of my simulations but not in a packaging as I have not developed a packaging yet. Thank you very much for reading I hope you had a really nice day and please consider commenting on whether you are interested!

NEW START!

Hi, I’m back!!

It’s been a long time since I last posted on here and I’ve decided to start again, reviewing products and creating more content!

While I’ve been away I’ve gained a few more followers, so, hi if your new, feel free to have a peek through my blog especially through my about page!

Love you all, EllieBlogsx

MASSIVE IKEA/LAKESIDE HAUL!!!

On Friday we had a no-school day and my mum took me to Thurrock to do some shopping! I spent a lot of money but as this is a beauty blog I’m only showing beauty related items, so this means I can shorten this post a little!

IKEA: Firstly, I wanted to buy some new makeup storage so I bought another Micke desk! My makeup is super cramped and my skincare is all shoved away. I’m really happy with how it looks in my room and it doesn’t take up too much space. If you want I might do another storage post as it is looking so organised. Finally, I got 2 Skrurar pots, to keep my makeup brushes in and 2 photo frames!

Next Lakeside, I bought lots of makeup!

Rimmel:

I bought a loose powder and the colourist mascara.

Maybelline:

I also got the Fit me powder in 120 and the Superstay setting spray.

L’oreal:

I have 3 new items from L’oreal including, True match concealer in 2, the True match highlighter and the Glam bronze in 06.

Garnier:

I got a bit of skincare including the Pure active Daily deep pore wash and the Moisture Match oily skin moisturiser .

NYX and Sleek:

I bought the NYX blush in taupe to contour with, Sleek highlighter palette and the Blush by 3 palette which has some lovely autumnal blushes.

Urban Decay:

EEEKKK! I know! Finally, I got the Vice Reloaded XX Palette and it looks incredible!

lots of Love, Ellie xxx

Products I’m throwing away today!

Today I’m going show you what makeup I’m getting rid of this month. I haven’t bought any items for a few weeks so I don’t have much to show but by Saturday I’ll have a haul up on Saturday as I am going to Lakeside on Friday!

NYX Concealer- 02

This product is good, for £5 it’s great however I never use it anymore. This concealer is very pink toned which isn’t my favourite and It’s quite cakey. I tried to use it up and it’s almost gone so I’ve decided to chuck it!

Bourjois bronzer:

I am literally so annoyed at this product. It makes me angry thinking about it. I bought another one of this after the last post like this, and it cracked again which is extremely dissapointing! The product is lovely but unfortunatly they are so fragile!

MUA Eyeliner:

I simply don’t like this, It’s not pigmented enough and kinda grey!

Benefit Porefessional;

This is a really popular product however it’s really siliconey which makes me oily, and I don’t see any difference in my pores when I use it. I’m glad I got a tester first!

Thanks for reading, sorry these posts are irregular, I’m trying to balance my school work and free time and it’s proving difficult!

Lots of love, Ellie xx

 

 

WOW and worst Wednesday!

Hiya everyone, welcome back to EllieBlogs!

Today I have a new type of post! Every Wednesday I would like to share some of my favourite and least favourite products of the week. The purpose, to give you a guide of what to buy or not to buy!

WOW’s!

MAYBELLINE FIT ME CONCEALER:

This product is amazing, it’s lightweight but high coverage. It doesn’t crease and the colour is perfect now I have the right shade! SIDE NOTE: The shade 15 is lighter than shade 10!

BENEFIT GOOF PROOF BROW PENCIL:

I initially thought this was too dark but actually it’s perfect! It’s smooth and buttery but won’t slide around once it’s on!

WORST’s

BOURJOIS BRONZER:

This shattered and I said I would throw it away, however, I kept it because I didn’t get a chance to test it properly. I have been using it and it’s unfortunately a no. It’s glittery and way too orange.

Thank you very much for reading! I love you lots!

Lots of love, Ellie xx
