Illamasqua 'Emerge' Cream Pigment Review

Hello my little muffins!

Yes I lost my Illamasqua virginity. It was difficult at first to give in but wow it felt good afterwards. Enough with the innuendos Emma...just get on with the review...sorry.




I have moaned and complained numerous times about my horrific dark circles under my eyes and have been desperate to try an orange-toned concealer to cancel this out. (Remember colour wheels in school art classes?) I know MAC is supposed to do an amazing one but I decided to finally bite the Illamasqua bullet.




Firstly, packaging. I love the quirky little shape to this and the sleek black lid. For a potted concealer (as opposed to a tube) there is actually quite a lot of product in this and I love how the bottom is clear so I know exactly what I'm taking out the drawer.




The texture is quite hard but goes incredibly creamy once worked slightly. However, the pigmentation is insane on this so the tiniest amount goes a long way! 

I layer this underneath my usual Collection Lasting Perfection concealer (sometimes a tiny bit over the top aswell if things are looking incredibly bad under there) and set with a bit of powder. It lasts pretty much all day with no creases and counteracts all my gross bluey tones fantastically!

I know £17.50 is a bit of a steep price tag but I've been using this looooads and have barely made a dent so it will last a long time. Plus you are paying for a high quality, pretty specific product. Personally, it's a must.

Fear

Hello my little muffins!

I know I've already posted today, I was all organised and had it scheduled a few days ago but I've been in an odd mood the last few days. Rather than bottle it all up I decided to write about it...and post it on the Internet...like a normal person. Bloggers logic!

Today I'm going to talk about something that I've not really seen much on this here blogosphere we call home. Fear. I apologise how truly awfully cheesy this post will be.

I'm not talking about being squealy when a spider runs across the bathtub or (if you're me) passing out when someone cuts themselves. I'm talking about the sort of gut-wrenching, panic-inducing, heart-racing kind of fear that plagues us all at one time or another. Sometimes it's serious things that create this kind of fear, sometimes it's just a little thing that completely freaks you out.



For me, it's been something that has been building all summer and has just taken over the last few days. 
The fear I'm not doing the right thing with my life.

It almost makes me feel silly to think this way. I am so driven and passionate about the fashion industry and have been from a young age so why should this fear even cross my mind? I work hard, I get good grades on a course I love and I surround myself with the industry I couldn't live without. It's the future that terrifies me. I know I want to be a designer but at the same time I love doing this. Writing, photographing, blogging. Can I fit both into my life and be successful? I don't even know what sort of designer I want to be yet, I have a few more years to go of my degree but I have to do a work placement next year and I couldn't even begin to come up with a brand I want to work for. I feel like time is ticking away all too fast.

So what do I do with these fears? Am I not meant to admit to them? Do I learn from them or let them consume me? I have no clue! Sometimes we can 'grow some balls' and just push past them; but sometimes there are days when we just can't. And there's nothing wrong or abnormal about that. Fear is one of the most powerful emotions we have as human beings, it's what we do with it that counts.

OOTD - Leather and Jeans, Garage Glamorous

Hello my little muffins!

Despite the weird weather the North West is experiencing the last couple of days (rain one minute then sun the next? Just decide!) I did want to share with you my favourite outfit from this week.



This top is super cute, the leather sleeves and collar give it a bit of an edge (I'm loving the punky grungy influences in the upcoming seasons trends) and the wine colour makes it a little bit brighter. I have a longer body and short legs so finding tops which come to a nice length on me is really difficult but I really like the length on this and how it goes slightly longer at the back.

I just put this on with my gap skinny jeans and my favourite DM shoes! Comfy, girly grunge! Teamed with a smudgy eye and a sheer colour on the lip, I think this is my favourite look for the current weather.

Jeans - Gap £30
Shoes - Dr Martens £85

Sleek Face Form Kit Review

Hello my little muffins!

I have a very round face. And a big head. Problematic. I struggle to find contour bronzers to suit me because they're either really orange or muddy. I have lusted over Sleeks contour kit for aaages and finally decided to take the plunge.

What I didn't realise was that they do a Face Form Kit which includes their infamous Rose Gold blush (in the fair/light kits) and it works out cheaper to buy this than the contour kit and blush separately. Woo student logic!!



The packaging is usual Sleek: simple, sturdy and chic. It does tend to get a little dirty but I can forgive that for how sturdy and well-sized they are. You get a good sized mirror in there too so it is pretty much handbag perfect.



The kit includes a bronzer, highlight and blush. All 3 are so super soft and pigmented it is crazzzy. Their colour choices are really great too, the bronzer is a subtle matte brown which blends nicely so you don't get a weird stripey effect and actually looks good on my skin. The highlight is my least favourite of the 3; it is a little bit too subtle but if you layer it you start to just look sparkly. I like it but I do prefer my MUA highlight. The blush is so beautiful though, you need an incredibly light hand to apply the gold-flecked peachy pink colour and it just gives a healthy glow to the cheeks. 

This lasts all day easy and is amazing value for money. You can get it here for a steal at £9.99!

Revlon Nail Enamel 'Seductive' Review

Hello my little muffins!

I have been harping on about berry tones for a while now, they are perfect for the A/W season and I just feel like they suit me really well. I've been sticking them on my eyes and lips so why not nails too?



In the bottle this looks so gorgeous, really vampy and dark. Now I'm not usually one for negativity but I always promise honesty. I love Revlon nail varnishes, I have TONS and I've never had a problem with them. However, this shade is so disappointing it brought me down from my mega purple high.


I found it really thin in formula, meaning it took a good 3 coats to get it opaque and even then I've been left with streaky nails. Sad sad Emma. Also, the brush seems so much thinner than normal so it took forever to paint my nails. Noone wants that Revlon!

Having said that, I do still love the colour itself I just maybe need to go on the hunt for a better one. Also, it actually lasted around 5 days without chipping. Nice one!

Have you tried Revlon polishes?

August Empties

Hello my little muffins!

There have only been a handful of products I've used up this month (other than toothpaste but who wants to see my empty toothpaste tube?) but I have really enjoyed using these products and I am sad to see them go.



1. Along Came Betty Clean Around the Clock (full review here)

This has taken me aages to use up, I've loved it so much I've been savouring it! It smells so invigorating and fresh it wakes me up of a morning....a tough task I must say. Plus it really hydrates my skin so I have baby soft skin mmm.

2. Toni & Guy Salt Spray

I have repurchased this a few times, I really like the smell and the hold it gives on the texture it gives. Not much more I can say really, it's a nice product but nothing exciting.

3. Crazy Colour Bleaching Kit

This has by far been the best bleaching kit I've used to create my ombre hair. It is really strong so I get a nice light blonde without the brassiness, plus it hasn't done as much damage to my hair as most kits I've tried. I will be using this for my next dye attempt!

4. Revlon Lip Butter in 'Tutti Fruitti'

Oh I'm so sad to see this go! I love the bright orange colour and lip butters are my fave!

5. Benefit Fake Up (full review here)

I have loved this, I found it really hydrating on my eye area and did brighten it but I think the price tag is a little steep for the actual product so I won't be repurchasing :(

August Beauty Favourites

Hello my little muffins!


August has been a lovely month, holidays and trips have happened plus I've been getting ready to go back to uni (woo!).  I haven't tried a huge amount of new products but the few products I have been using I have ADORED.



1. Bumble and Bumble thickening hairspray

This has been amazing! I got it free in this month's Elle magazine and have not stopped using this. It really thickens and boots volume as a pre-drying treatment and hold my curls great as a hairspray.



2. Jack Wills rollerball perfume

I love these rollerballs, they are sturdy and a great handbag size. This fragrance smells really floral and slightly musky but it lasts aaaages! It has been permanently in my bag this month.



3. MUA lip liner in 'Red Drama' with 1D Lipstick in Harry's shade 'Be Mine' (full review here)

I love this combo, it is really bright and such a beautiful red. The liner makes the lipstick last a little bit longer too! I'm loving red at the moment so this is a great cheap and cheerful colour I keep reaching for.



4. MUA pearl eyeshadow in shade 12

This reminds me of MACs 'Club' shadow, I really love the green smoky shimmer and how it blends out to a pretty brown colour. I've been using this a lot because there's no need for definition shades (in the crease etc) because it blends out to different colours. 



5. Always Infinity Pads

Apologies if there are any guys reading buuut periods are vile. They are uncomfortable and painful blah blah blah. Anything that makes it slightly more comfortable is just amazing for us girlies! These pads are weird but they are so comfortable I barely feel them! I am converted.

What are your August favourites?

One Direction 'Kiss You' Collection Review

Hello my little muffins!

Yes I admit, I gave into the hype. Anything with those specimens of male perfection just makes me all giddy. Boys if you've gone mad and decided to read a beauty blog, I'm single!

I only bought Harry's and Zayn's shades...for the moment anyway. They are £3 from Superdrug in the MUA sections.

I must admit I have been loving these lipsticks, I didn't think they'd be that great of a product I just thought they'd be a gimmick. Despite the less-than-average plastic packaging (although the signed bullets are cool) that is blatantly aimed at their younger fanbase, the product has exceeded all expectations.





Let's start with my favourite of the two, Harry's shade 'Be Mine'. It is a deep blue-toned red which almost has a slight bluey sheen to it. I have found that this really suits my skin tone and does wonders to make my teeth look SUPER white. The formula is incredibly creamy so it glides on lovely, however I did find there is a lot of transfer...well...everywhere so don't wear white! It has amazing pigmentation, a lot more than I expected and it lasts around 3-4 hours. Acceptable no? Lovely jubbly.





I love Zayn's shade 'I Wish' so much too but just haven't worn it as much. It is a bright blue-toned pink which glides on so buttery and smooth. The lasting time isn't as good as Harry's shade but the pigmentation is amazing and the colour is lovely. 

Have you tried these products?

OOTD | Nautical Frills and Spills



I love this dress. This is officially the biggest bargain ever! The Liverpool branch of Republic was having a closing down sale so I picked this pretty baby up for £5. I was so excited I bought it in blue too. It's quite thick so it'll do me right through Autumn.

I love this slightly smocky shape too, it's super flattering on my bottom-heavy shape and makes me feel like I should be skipping around like a fairy. (I'm normal I swear.)

My brother thinks my frilly ankle socks make me look like an overgrown child but I could not care less! I think they're so pretty over my tough studded boots. 

Dress - Republic £5
Frilly ankle socks - Primark £1.50
Studded chelsea boots - Boohoo £15

My Beauty Hates

Hello my little muffins! 

Today I'm just in one of those ranty moods. When there isn't actually anything wrong but everything is irritating me to the point of turning hulk-like. So what better way to harness this energy than to share it with you! (Plus list-making is a bit of an obsession of mine.)

10 things I hate about beauty products. Or application. Or beauty in general. I got a bit carried away.

10. Products that cause breakouts. You've got all excited, handed over the cash and skipped merrily home with your new moisturiser or mask or whatever. So lets try it.....oh wait it HATES your skin and you wake up with an influx of sexy spots. Goodbye money!

9. Moisturiser that takes forever to sink in. Now I know companies are always trying to combat this but not many really crack it. I love putting body cream on in the morning and most of the time I end up having to stand around attempting to dry before putting on my clothes. Grr.

8. Fake nails. I don't get why people even bother! They just destroy your real nails underneath! Someone make me understand :(

7. Eyeshadow fallout. This doesn't happen with every brand but quite a lot of the time you spend ages doing your face all pretty and then realise half your eyeshadows down your perfectly powdered cheek. Good look that one Em.

6. Eyebrows that are never symmetrical. This irritates me no end. I know noone can ever have perfectly symmetrical eyebrows but come on! They're both on the same face why is it so hard to get them the same!

5. Eyeliner wings that are never symmetrical. I seem to spend most of my mornings trying to get my eyeliner wings the same. It. Never. Happens. Ever. 

4. Gloopy nail varnish. Sometimes they're bought that way, sometimes they just change. Either way it makes application SO hard. Sort it out beauty companies!

3. Squishing your favourite lipstick. I know this has happened to all of us at some point. You take your lippie out in your bag and it gets so warm it melts and smushes. OR you are an idiot like me and miss when trying to put the lid back on...goodbye half a bullet.

2. Fake tan. Just in general. It either does absolutely NADA orrrrr you look like a wotsit. Even if you get a nice colour theres always that one patch you've missed or streaked. Yummy. 

1. Sneezing just after mascara application. Why does this happen?! Particularly if the mascara you've handed over your hard-earned money for is a stupidly wet formula anyway so you just end up looking like you've smushed spiders over your face.

Anyway, I hope you had a bit of a giggle. Let me know if you agree/disagree! 

What are YOUR beauty pet hates?

Holiday Beauty Favourites


Along Came Betty Prime of Your Life
See full review here. I am so in love with this primer! It works like a charm and makes my face all glowy. Hit methinks.

Garnier BB Cream
I have tried sooooo many BB creams and this is the only one I've got on with. It's light, creamy and hydrating and gives just enough coverage to hide any redness but lets my tan shine through.

Superdrug Face Masks
I took a few different ones away with me, for 99p you can't exactly moan. I chose refreshing and deep cleaning ones to attempt to combat the oil build up I suffer from in the sun.

Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Pomegranate

This is my new love! Noone can be bothered with full make up on holiday but a sweep of this with a flick of mascara and I was good to go. Plus it stays put in the heat. This colour makes my brown eyes pop and looked great with a tan.

Toni & Guy Salt Spray
I have repurchased this a couple of times, I love the ease of it and the smell. It gives me texture without the frizz so I can attempt to look somewhat normal.

Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Herba Fresca
This smells like lime and mint and freshness and holidays and um amazing. I love this! So light and refreshing and it does stay on for hours even in the heat.

What are your holiday favourites?

Lilac Aztec Nails Tutorial | NOTD

Today I'm doing something a little different for you guys, I've been messing around with my mum's nail art bits and pieces and thought I'd share with you a super easy aztec nail art tutorial. This took all of 20 mins, I'd never sit for longer than that anyway I get faaarr too fidgety so I wanted something really quick and easy.

I am using Sally Hansen's Dual Base and Top Coat, Barry M Gelly Nail Paint in 'Prickly Pear' and some nail art pens/brush tools. Barry M's nail art pens are also amazing for this if you want something even easier to have a go at. 


I always start with a base coat, it helps strengthen your nails and stop staining. Also, I feel like it makes my polish stay on longer but I've got no clue if this is a load of rubbish or not! I always swear by Sally Hansen for all treatments, base/top coats and strengthening polishes!

Then I applied 2 coats of my prickly pear varnish. I love these more than life itself. They go on a dream, last for ages due to the gel consistency and are so shiny. Plus the £3.99 price tag makes my bank account breathe a sigh of relief.


I decided to just stick to my ring fingers as I feel like maybe the black could look a little too much, plus I couldn't sit still long enough to concentrate on doing each nail perfectly! I started with 2 white stripes (on thin and one thick) using the striping brush part of my nail art pens. I found moving my nail aswell as the brush helped with getting a much smoother line.


Then I took the black striping brush and added a few details, again moving both hands around to get the smoothest lines. I also found that only picking up a tiny amount of polish each time, even if it meant going over the lines a couple of times helped me get straighter lines. 


I finished off by cleaning up my fingers with a cotton bud dipped in nail varnish remover and a nice top coat. (A small tip from my mummy: when doing your topcoat, finish each nail by doing a last sweep of polish over the tips as if you are doing a french tip. This seals the ends and helps with chipping.)


Unless you are amazing, nothing is going to be perfect! I really like the way it turned out and was surprised how easy it was. I have shaky hands so if I can do it, literally ANYBODY can.

Have you tried nail art? If you have, send me links or tweet me pictures! @WearMoreColour

The Difference Our Slap Makes

Now I have no clue where I stumbled on a picture of someone baring a half naked face (if anyone can enlighten me please let me know!!) but I was so shocked at the difference our make up makes I wanted to see for myself.

When I'm doing my make up, I'm concentrating so much on what I want it to end up like that I don't actually pay attention to what I look like 'before and after' so to speak.

So today...just for you guys...I am going face naked on the Internet. Well half anyway. So you can see how weird the contrast is. I used my usual, everyday neutral make up.



This has also made me see which products I like more than others haha! Plus I really need my eyebrows plucking, the sun just makes them grow like cavemens brows. Also, the sun has made my foundation a touch too light, something I haven't seen as much until this photo.




So after that ordeal, I challenge ALL OF YOU to do the same! Link your posts down below! It really is shocking how much we change ourselves just in the space of 10/15 minutes every morning. (Mainly my black circles and non-descript face shape.)

Mid-Year Life Assessment

Now I know this isn't exactly halfway through the year but I was inspired by reading Zoella's latest post and, considering my already reflective mood, decided to follow suit.

The name of this blog doesn't just symbolise my need to inject colour into my wardrobe, it symbolises my need to inject colour into my entire life. To push myself to do new things and strive to be the happiest and best person I can be. 

Over the last 6/7 months I feel like I have done just that. Grabbing life by the balls and not giving a crap about what other people might say. 

This has been a slow process though, over the last couple of years really I have been trying to be a better judge of character in an attempt to surround myself with good, caring people. I found myself surrounded by people who didn't have as much time for me as I did for them, they made me desperately unhappy and putting a stop to that made me feel like I was taking back some of the control I felt I'd lost.

This year, these feelings started to creep back again so these past few months I have started this process all over again. I give a lot to my friendships and relationships; having people around you that at least give a rats arse about you is something I think everyone deserves. It may surprise you that you actually can CHOOSE your friends, you aren't obliged to do anything. 

This has resulted in (now I'm home from uni and all my friends are scattered across the country) me being alone a lot of the time. However, it makes me appreciate my true friends all the more and makes me appreciate all the time I get to spend with them.

I have pushed myself to do new things this year, I have been travelling for one! It scared the living daylights out of me but I managed to do it, and I met some incredible people. You can see my post here. I have driven long distance, joined a gym, dyed my hair wonderous colours and generally just smiled more.

As for actually wearing more colour, I think you guys can judge that! All my hauls and lookbooks and OOTD posts seem to be getting brighter and crazier by the minute! Maybe its how happy I'm feeling right now that is coming out in my personal style, or maybe I am just going round the bend.

You can check out my new years resolutions post here.

Along Came Betty Review

I have made a rather exciting discovery in Tesco blog lovelies! Popping in for a few bits and pieces just happened to take me down the cosmetics aisle, and this section full of pink just caught my girly-magpie eye.

Everything was on offer at the time and, despite how little stock there was left, I picked up a few different pieces to try out. That being said, the products are insanely cheap as they are, most coming at around £5 and I didn't see anything for more than £10 in the stand. 




(On Offer)
Clean Around The Clock Creamy Shower Wash - £3.99
The Prime Of Your Life Illuminating Primer - £4.99
Wow Lashes Mascara - £3.99

The packaging is very Soap & Glory; pretty and vintage inspired but still sturdy and practical. I think that's why I was drawn to it...who doesn't love a cheaper version of a great brand! Plus it is far too cute to resist.

Firstly the Clean Around The Clock shower wash smells divine. It's sweet but really fresh at the same time and makes my skin lovely and soft. I like something that can leave a subtle fragrance on my skin, particularly something uplifting.




The Prime Of Your Life illuminating primer is a new type of product for me. I've never used a face primer before, only eye ones, but considering I have very large pores I think I should probably jump on the bandwagon! 






This is very silky, pink-toned primer with a slight gold shimmer to it, I found it instantly evened out my complexion and gave me a nice healthy glow. I have used this under foundation to just make me look a bit more 'awake' but I think it would look lovely by itself with just a little setting powder over the top for days when you want to keep make up down to a minimum.







The prize out of these 3 has to be the Wow Lashes mascara. They have 2 mascaras on offer, one focusing on length and this focusing on volume. In my opinion mascara should do both but I think it may also be a wand shape preference. I like a nice chunky thick wand so I went for this (the pictures of the wands are on the sides of the packaging). I like the fact although the wand is chunky to really add volume, it's quite short so you have a lot more control over where you are putting the product.


Left eye with mascara, right eye bare
I don't think this is a life-changing product but for how little I paid for it, this is a great product! It does lengthen and define my lashes whilst adding good volume. It doesn't smudge and lasts well throughout the day. Wonderful! 

I will be back Tesco!!
