RT brushes!

I have been coveting these brushes for years. Ever since I heard Pixiwoo came out with their own line of affordable makeup brushes I've been dying to get my hands on them. But I never could justify the shipping fee for these if I were to order them from home. Everyone raved about them for being amazing quality brushes for a comparatively affordable price. And after watching countless reviews and hauls, I decided it's time to finally buy them. But obviously with me it's either go big or go home. So I placed an order for the core collection, starter set and blush brush all together. I've only used the starter set so far and they are a dream. The crease brush especially is amazing and makes blending my eyeshadow all that much easier. But admittedly, I'm most excited for the blush brush. I've always been a blusher gal and this brush has just the perfect shape and size to lightly sweep a nice wash of colour across my cheeks. Not to mention the bristles are amazingly soft. Personally, I think I won't get as much use out of the detailer brush, foundation brush and fine liner brush. Mainly because I rather use the buffing brush for foundation/concealer and for eyeliner, well I always preferred a more angled brush. But they're still pretty handy to have anyways so I'll give them a go and see how they work out for me. The next Real Techniques brush I have my eye on is probably the powder brush. It just looks so big and fluffy and soft and I just really want it. There isn't really a viable reason to purchase it yet other than the fact my current powder brush needs to be retired soon anyways. I can't wait to try out the rest of these brushes and I'll be sure to let you know how I get along with them.

Talk soon xx

Top -  H&M, Lips - Revlon Matte Balm in Fiery

Hey! I'm pretty pumped because I've just finished my exams today. Well, actually I've only done my Bio and Maths paper. I've got an English paper next week but at least, the brunt of it is over. Felt so relieved coming out of today's paper, Bio really stressed me out this past week. I'm just looking forward to summer break now because I am soo ready for a holiday. I thought I'd do a post about my little choker collection. I've always thought they looked really cool (cough 90s vibe cough) and recently, they've suddenly been popping up a lot more. Guess they're coming back in trend again. So, I decided to pick up a couple for myself. I got the slim black velvet choker from Asos. Probably the basic choker style that everyone owns. With good reason though, it's pretty much the most versatile design, because well it's monochrome and minimalistic. You can't go wrong. It's a casual design that works day to night. The next choker is velvet too but has a little bit of a more wider band. Mine's from Romwe. I think this design is a newer addition this season and I really like it! Personally, I prefer it as more of a night piece or if I want to dress up an outfit slightly. I think it looks especially amazing with off the shoulder tops. Last but not least, the piece de resistance of course goes to my final choker, this intricate lace one. It's so pretty! I adore it but I'll admit I haven't worn it out yet, just haven't found the perfect place/event to let this beauty shine. I got it last December when I was shopping for a Christmas present for my cousin. I saw it in the store and I fell in love. There were only two lace chokers left with slightly different styles. Obviously, I decided to kill two birds with one stone and pick them both up. Wrapped one up and gave it to my cousin and kept the other for myself. That's basically the best part of Christmas shopping isn't it, you're technically out to find things for other people but unintentionally scouting for yourself as well. I can't wait for someone to throw a halloween party because I call dibs on being a vampire princess, just so I can wear this baby. I'm on the look out for some thinner chokers, you know the sort of wraparound string types? Let me know if you have some or know where to get some nice ones.
Talk soon xx
