SALEM.

Playing around with makeup today trying to distract myself from negative thoughts. I've been at my parent's house for the past few days and I go back to Leeds tomorrow. I love living in Leeds but I just don't feel welcome there I'm not sure why. Trying to network is hell for me. I have to find musicians for my college projects but nobody seems to want to work with me and I always feel that people don't take me seriously. I am a lot older than most of the other students and the only girl in most of my classes and I just feel lonely a lot of the time. Anyway I only have 6 weeks left of uni till the year is finished then I will need to find a job which I am really stressing out about. Life of a social reject is no fun.

Illamasqua Birthday haul.

Illamasqua single eyeshadows l-r: Burst, Can Can, Inception.
L-R Eyebrow gel in Strike, Vintage Metallix in Embellish, Gel eyeliner in Infinity.

It's no secret that Illamasqua is my FAVOURITE makeup brand. I have been building up my collection over the past 14 months. Their latest sale was absolutely amazing and I used my Birthday discount to get a few last bits. My sister also kindly gifted me the Embellish eye trio which contains my new favourite eyebrow product - Eyebrow gel in 'Strike'. Perfect for super dark bold Frances Bean Cobain esque brows. I haven't had chance to play with my new eyeshadows. I picked out two purple shades and one beautiful dark teal. I also bought an Illamasqua makeup bag to keep them all in.

Did you pick up anything in the recent sale? I can't wait to see what new collections are coming out this year!

BIRCHBOX UK February 2015


In my BirchBox this month:

London Butterflies - Body Butter Soufflé | £37
theBalm® cosmetics - Stainiac in Beauty Queen | £10
Cynthia Rowley Beauty - Eyeliner in black | £11
Green People - Intense Repair Shampoo | £11.95
Caudalie - Vinoperfect Radiance Serum | £45
The Chia Co® - Oats + Chia | £4.95

My favourite item in this month's box is the Body Butter Soufflé by London Butterflies, a brand I have never heard of before. I put it on my face last night and it's never felt softer. It also smells good enough to eat. I was really hoping to receive a sample of theBalm's Cindy-Lou Manizer this month but instead I received Stainiac which I had high hopes for as I've never used a lip stain but this was a very disappointing product for me. I am now really excited about this box as a whole. I am thinking of cancelling my subscription. It's been fun opening mystery boxes each month but being a student means I can't afford to keep up with a subscription box that disappoints.

As always BirchBox is a £10 a month subscription. You can get free P+P on the February box using the code 'BBLOVES' http://birchbox.co.uk
