Winter Makeup Look – Guest Post!

Hi everyone! It’s Mali from Maliberry Makeup.  When Nat asked me to write a few guest posts for her while she’s away, I tried to think of things that might be new to her readers.  I know that when it comes to makeup Nat only really wears lipstick, so I thought it might be a bit of a change of pace to share a full face look with you.
I’m a bit of an oddball as for me, green is a colour I wear year round – it’s my version of neutrals! However, come Christmas/winter time, it becomes much more acceptable to wear jewel-toned shades so I hope some aspects of this look will be wearable to everyone.  Click the links to see my reviews of every product mentioned!
I’m all about bright lime and neon greens usually, but when the weather gets colder I find myself reaching for deeper shades.  After priming, I lay down a base of Urban Decay Graffiti which is one of my all time favourite shades.  I deepened the outer corner and crease with Shiro Cosmetics Lingered in Twilight.  I brightened up the inner corners using MAC Lucky Green, and added some colour to the waterline using MAC Wondergrass.  I finished with a flick of Inglot Liquid Eyeliner in shade 34 and lots of mascara!
I like my eyes bold so I stripped back the rest of my makeup.  I filled in my brows with my Sleek Eyebrow Stylist in Dark.  I applied my Bourjois Cream Blush in Rose Tender on my cheeks and added some subtle colour to my lips using MAC Sweetie 🙂
  If all-over green is too much for you, you could just stick with liner and a pop of colour on the inner corners, or opt for gold, purple or crimson which also work well during winter.  Or, stick with neutrals! Makeup should be about making yourself happy, whether that involves wearing lots of colour, neutral shades or none at all.
I hope you all had a wonderful festive season and that you liked this makeup look! Thanks Nat for inviting me to write a guest post 🙂 If you’d like to see more makeup looks from me, you can follow my blog using the buttons below.

Bomb Cosmetics Bath Tulips Review – Guest Post!

Bomb Cosmetics Bath Tulips
Hi everyone!  It’s Mali from Maliberry Makeup again, back with another guest post for the lovely Nat.  Long time readers of my blog will be familiar with my rather extensive knowledge and previous reviews of stuff from Lush.  To say I’m Queen of Bathing would be an understatement 😉 Even though I love Lush, I do enjoy trying other brands. Bomb Cosmetics have an impressive and fun range of bath products that I’m getting to know better, and today I’ll be talking about two of their Bath Tulips.  These are bath melts made of lovely butters and oils that dissolve in the bath and turn the water beautifully soft.

The Bath Tulips are swirls of solid butters and oils really prettily packaged in paper cases, making them look like little fairy cakes!  The Bath Tulip on the left is called Apple Catcher and has an appropriately green colour scheme, topped with red ‘berries’,  The one on the right is called Pearl’s a Zinger and is orange in colour, topped with more ‘berries’ and solid butters that actually look very much like chopped almonds!

Both Bath Tulips contain lots of Cocoa and Shea Butters, making them perfect for adding moisture to bath water.  Apple Catcher contains warming and calming Amyris and Nutmeg essential oils.  Pearl’s a Zinger contains uplifting and stimulating Orange and Mandarin essential oils

In the water, these dissolve very slowly, turning it cloudy.  I found Apple Catcher to have a refreshing apple scent which was a little disappointing once in the water.  Pearl’s a Zinger, however, was so zesty and orangey and really packed a punch in terms of scent!  Of course, the cocoa and shea butters made the water really soft and silky and left my skin very moisturised.  I got 3 uses out of each Bath Tulip, and simply removed each one and let them dry once I was happy with the water softness.  They cost £2.99 each, which is pretty good value for money considering the uses you get out of them!
Bomb Cosmetics are definitely a company worth checking out if you love a good bath like I do.  My one issue with the company is that they can be quite hard to track down in physical stores.  Thanks again for inviting me to guest post Nat, and I’d love it if you checked out my blog if you’re reading this!

Guest Post: Peanut Butter Cookies

As readers may have seen recently, my friend Mali from Maliberry Makeup wrote a guest post for me on my blog last week, and I just wanted to remind you all that I also wrote a guest post for her blog.

I wrote a peanut butter cookies post for her, which was really fun to do!

Apologies that I’ve been so quiet, been so busy with Christmas and university work. But 2015 will be different, I promise!

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re ready for Christmas, only a couple more sleeps now.
